Bahamas Press read with interest the response of the TORCH [Tribune] this morning as they spoke to Failed Minister of Labour, Dion Foulkes, on a report by Bahamas Press, which confirms some 600 workers at the telephone corporation are set to be fired by the end of the year.
Reading from the Outgoing FNM Government’s famous response line, Foulkes said the news was not true and that the information presented came from that “PLP website”.
Hog knows just where to rub its skin as blatant CORRUPTION, FRAUD and DECEIT have been committed against the Bahamian People during the sale of BTC to Cable and Wireless.
While both Foulkes and the Tribune seeks to spin the facts, we know they SUPPORT the FNM and expect nothing better from them.
We however noted not a DAMN word was whispered in the article over today’s axing of Kirk Griffin, nor was nothing printed about the shipment of the entire International Carrier Payment Centre to Jamaica. All jobs in that department will be gone by the end of May.
The Government of the Bahamas [INCLUDING DION FOULKES] does not speak on behalf of LIME BAHAMAS [BTC] anymore! Somehow they forgot they sold the DAMN company. Cable and Wireless are the only people who can speak to the pending bloodbath headed for workers at the Corporation.
However, Foulkes should have told the Tribune what was his government’s response to the Voluntary Work Reduction Programme submitted to Hubert Ingraham in the Cabinet Room following the transfer on the day of sale. In that programme he should have told the Tribune how many persons are headed for the guillotine and how much money was being offered to workers in various departments, which are being shipped to Jamaica.
MUMS THE WORD!!! THEY SOLD OUT THE PEOPLE OF THE BAHAMAS AND THEY SOLD BTC BACK TO THE BRITISH! THEY HAVE NO DAMN SHAME!
Additionally, the Minister with Responsibility for Labour should focus on his brother’s operation in Downtown Nassau.
At the end of Charlotte Street a new Sharkeez Bar is being constructed. We understand by information supplied to us in that former Starbucks building there is a gang of Jamaican workers who are without any work permits. THAT IS WHAT THE MINISTER SHOULD BE SPEAKING TO.
And while in the face of the press he should speak to the matter of Stephens Close.
Foulkes could run to the Torch and speak on behalf of Cable & Wireless, but he cannot find his tongue to tell the RAG SHEET of the crookedness and BACKSIDE RAPE committed against the people of Stephen Close by him.
Hubert Ingraham, the FNM and the TORCH [The Tribune] SOLD BTC BACK TO THE BRITISH and sold out THE BAHAMIAN PEOPLE for pennies!
Twenty Two FNMs – INCLUDING KENYATTA GIBSON voted “YES” TO SELL OUT BAHAMIANS! Don’t forget it!
AND WE ‘GA’ CHANGE DAT! A ROYAL COMMISSION IS HEADED TO THE BAHAMAS FOR PAPA AND HIS BOYS!!! SOMEONE GERN TA JAIL FOR COLLECTING THAT 3% FINDER’S FEE!
