You hemmed and hawed and refused to make a clear statement of your party’s position on the matter so that whatever the government decided, you would be free to pounce on it.
Bahamian taxpayers will end up paying over $50 million for the $30 million dollar ‘gift of a stadium’ built by the Chinese.
The arrest of nine Bahamian straw vendors in New York City on charges of trafficking in counterfeit goods is not a problem for the Bahamas. It is, however, a symptom of much larger problems.
