Nassau, Bahamas: Bahamas Press has watched, with much consternation, the continued saga by the wutless media concerning this no name member of parliament who, the wutless media claims is tied up in a plethora of scandals surrounding the ministry of housing.
But that is not what really concerns Bahamas Press because if the wutless media and it’s amateur investigative-arm, The Royal Bahamas Police Force, has a case, then for the sake of public scrutiny over our resources, it must be brought forth. To keep up a malicious and stale melodrama makes the wutless media, conspirators to whatever they claimed has happened.
Bahamas Press took note of remarks made by the leader of the PLP at a breakfast ceremony several Saturdays past, where he alluded to his ministers knowing where he stands/stood as far a corruption goes and even though they are not in power anymore, the institution called The PLP has outlived Pindling, will out live him (Christie) and thus, the integrity of the institution must always be preserved.
In plain English, without the yellow streak of his backbone getting in our way, Christie was basically throwing any and all of his ministers “under the bus” if they were mixed up in any corruption as a result of being part of his government. Of course these remarks came at a time when the wutless media was busy reporting on this no name member of parliament. Hence, Bahamas Press can only conclude that Christie was taking a careful swipe at this no name member of Parliament, clearing himself, spearing having to name anyone and pleasing the wutless media all in one swipe. But here is the part that has caused Bahamas Press much consternation….
Mr. Christie can “back hand slap” one or all of his ministers, if given the opportunity, but yet he cannot even approach his family members about their behavior that goes beyond corruption, but is in fact criminal. Let’s look at his siblings and the word incest. Bahamas Press knows the exact definition of the word “incest” and in this context Bahamas Press is not connoting anything sexual (though there is a legitimate case of The Christie siblings being of one psychosexual mindset). In this case Bahamas Press bends the meaning to show how clannish they are and how they interbreed when it comes to criminality.
There are three brothers and two sisters (and an outside brother). The two sisters live quiet lives—but so did Heidi Fleiss before she was exposed! But then there are the two brothers. The middle brother, Gary, has been Perry’s bagman when ever money is in play. So whenever you see Gary doing something (which is always shady), you could believe that he has Christie’s blessings. Exactly three years ago, back on April 2, 2005 for example, containers in North Andros with all of the cigarettes and alcohol discovered by Customs was supposedly confiscated. Was anybody ever charged? No! Did Customs Chief John Rolle overlook this infraction? Bahamas Press does not know. But what Bahamas Press does know is that John Rolle has never been a friend of The PLP. But he was never removed from Customs under The PLP, even though, Bill Poitier, was the Customs administrator that every PLP wanted to replace John Rolle and Rolle gave PLP ministers pure hell and his boss, Christie, never intervened.
At the time of the container discovery, Gary Christie had and probably still has a bar at the top of Baillou Hill Road, with a big sign that said, “SELLING THE COLDEST AND CHEAPEST BEERS IN TOWN.” Obviously, that confiscated container didn’t stop any show because it wasn’t the first or the last. And who knows, they do auction items confiscated by Customs, correct?
Then there is the younger brother, Kevin. Considered an amiable chap, he’s been in trouble most of his adult life. A dropout at LSU and troubled drug fellow, he’s seen his share of court, but of course, Perry worked that out for him too. But it seems that he went on to bigger things in 2002-07. It was reported that he had a non-profit organization, in his own name that at first was bringing in these Haitian bands. Do you remember they would be in Grand Bahama and then find their way to the Lions Club on Thompson Blvd. Hill, or the union hall on East Street and Soldier Rd?
Well Bahamas Press also discovered that through this same non-profit organization, Kevin was also bringing in Haitians by the lot with visa status as a part of the price! Where are all of these Haitians after five years? And if Kevin wants to know who’s talking it, tell him to check Lafleur—Ms. Lafleur that is. As a side note, this revelation to our dear readers should put to rest the reckless remarks during the 2007 campaign that the minister, Fred Mitchell, was involved in a visa scandal. No it wasn’t a Mitchell—it was a Christie.
As far as Bahamas Press is concerned, you can pick any Christie, because if one is involved, all are. They are just an incestuous lot. Now Bahamas Press hopes that Perry Christie will chastise his siblings for what he knows happened, before he throws his comrades on the garbage heap just because the wutless media encourages him to do it.
