This writer could not sleep last night after reading words by the Nation’s Pussy Cat, Perry Christie. The weak leader of the PLP had the gall in one of the wutless dailies to suggest that he is “Very Happy” with the condition of the PLP.
PLP insiders should not forget that it was Bahamas Press who advised them that Christie is nothing more than a FAKE sitting at the helm of their organization. It was just last year, 2008 when Hubert Ingraham delivered the largest tax increase in the history of the Bahamas on the Bahamian people. Members of the PLP approved that same Budget. Ingraham raised taxes on 166,000 items including the Bible, school textbooks, pencils, shoes and clothing for children. Christie said nothing! And today he is “VERY HAPPY”.
Early this year a member of his Senate team was hauled before the courts and another MP ‘Da Snitch’, questioned by police in a case of ‘EXTORTION’. That case resulted in the resignation of the PLP Senator and left cloud of speculation on that sitting MP. Many in the international press alleged that the MP was still at the centre of it all, and again Christie said nothing, but today he is “VERY HAPPY” with the rot of his party?
In early November the country learned that children – for years – at the Eight Mile Rock High School were being raped, tortured and molested by a string of educators, police officers and personalities in the Eight Mile Rock community. A community leader cried for help everywhere he could, but yet again to this very day, Christie has never spoken to the issue. Could his quietness suggest he endorse molestations? Is that something to be “VERY HAPPY” about Christie? Again, Christie has yet to address the issue though it was raised in the parliament. Hmmmmmm!
Then it was last year January, when PLPs began to see disenchantment in the party and an exodus of members began. Many young members left the organization. One MP was so disgusted at the plight of Christie’s weaknesses, that he crossed the floor of the House of Assembly, while some members of Christie’s own bench cussed the WUTLESS PARTY LEADERSHIP under their breathe. Again, Christie called it “old news” and we guess here again he’s “VERY HAPPY” and extremely please! As Paul Moss puts it kindly, they [PLP leadership] are cannibalizing each other and are “killing off the young”. Yes Christie is “Very Happy” with the chaos of his party.
And he should be because Ingraham, his old law partner, is paying him a handsome pension and salary to sit quiet like a Pussy Cat in the people’s parliament. Christie is “VERY HAPPY” whilst the nation reels into turmoil and decay with Clico policyholders withdrawing their children from colleges, hotel workers wiping teary eyes and joining the unemployment line. With 5,000 civil servants rocked with nightmares night after night with the unpleasantries of Mugabe, yet Christie says he is “VERY HAPPY” and never speaks to these issues affecting the people he seek to lead.
Well we hope he continues to stay that way because Bahamas Press has attained copies of some documents that will reveal “Christie charitable collections”, which will prove he is just like his former law partner, a “SELL OUT”! Get ready Christie the line is drawn between you and BP!
