Bahamian Politicians Need To Be More Accountable

On October 8, 2010, I bumped into a high ranking Cabinet Minister at a social function and for some reason he brought up the brouhaha over Mr. Earl Deavaux’s helicopter ride and how silly it all was, and I agreed.

Furthermore, I believe Mr. Deveaux, the Minister of the Environment is above reproach. At least a helicopter ride to help him attend a function for the Friends of the Environment in Abaco and visit the investors property in Exuma to see the site of the proposed excavation of 3,800 feet for access to his property would not be enough to “pollute” him, if you’d pardon the pun.

The point I tried to make to the Minister was these things will continue to happen until conflict of interest is clearly defined in statute law.
