As we leap into this brand new year, I am more than persuaded that The Bahamas and her people are witnesses to confusion in high places.
I have observed that a wide cross section of the student population, even those who do well in school, do not read the newspaper, nor do they show any interest in local programming in the media.
The Bahamas Government, in an effort to reduce costs and promote efficiency, would like us to spend lots of money to enjoy a substandard service.
Despite adequate profits, the company leaves waiting passengers in the Family Islands with no toilet facilities and nowhere to seek shelter from the elements.
There is an ongoing illusion that Bahamians can just decide that they are going to run extremely large enterprises based on the fact that they are Bahamians, and that being Bahamian is the only qualification that one needs if they are going to take charge.
The PLP manipulators and the union leaders are using the workers to serve the purposes of a small group who constitute the new PLP Oligarchy, and their chief objective is to enrich themselves.
Perry Christie and the PLP criticize the FNM’s environmental policies, yet during their time in office their own environmental legacy was a very poor one.
The remarks made by straw vendors spokesperson, Esther Thompson, speak volumes about the attitude of far too many Bahamians when it comes to respect for authority and observance of the law.
