Minister of Foreign Affairs Brent Symonette.
Deputy Prime Minister Brent Symonette must have been playing football when addressing the United Nations a few days ago. The Minister of Foreign Affairs fumble over almost every line in his text and have left The Bahamas the laughing stock of the world. An ambassador told our news team just after Minister Symonette’s contribution to the UN, “The Bahamas have a lot of reading to do and Mr. Symonette should have taken up the topic of literacy to the UN.” This is no laughing matter at all, the government of The Bahamas MUST send a good reader to the UN at the next sitting of world leaders.
Listen to Mr. Symonette as he fumble over his text: http://webcast.un.org/ramgen/ondemand/ga/62/2007/ga071002pm.rm?start=00
