The Bahamas: Must Read
If Attorney General Allyson Maynard-Gibson knows the identity of the person/s who accepted the $300,000+ inducement from French energy company Alstom, why has the bribe-taker/s not been charged?

As Yogi Berra said, “It’s like deja-vu, all over again”, as the PLP gets set to repeat the mistakes of the drug-fueled 1980s, when they basically legalized criminality… and we are still suffering the consequences of that.
