If you read the act it puts the power in the people not the director. Read the act before making silly statements. DPP dont want it because their inner working would be transparent. Basically it says if you want to build a hotel on walkers cay then go talk to the people on grand cay and ask their permission. Or lighthouse point would be decided by the people in deep creek and not the big wigs or eco warriors in nassau. It is a good piece of legislation but too many would lose their benefits on the side. however the act has no teeth without the land use plan which has never been created. Probably because it involves someone actually doing to bloody work in this sodding country

Governments hate competition! But seriously, the entire Bahamas was able to adjust to VAT in a matter of a month or 2, but these idiots need a year? Seems i'm missing something. And if they are that bad at numbers, percentages, programming or regulatory adherence, then maybe they shouldn't be in the gambling business. i mean, if the they can't keep the house always winning then they won't make a massive profit. this situation makes me smile.

Ridonculously funny. More spat being played out in public. All of these people on BEC/BPL are jokers. One putting value on old tired gennys like they brand new. The other one using worldwide averages. Every bahamian knows full well that anything and everything in the bahamas is double. Buy a TV for 500 it will $1000 here. Buy a car for 5k it will be 10k. Buy a $30m genny it will be 60 here. Duh.

Surely this is all just coincidence that this has occurred right after the BPL union comments last week right? Some heads need to roll. Whoever was on duty when not one but all 3 fired started should be interrogated. Tell us who instructed who to do what? If not sabotage then it would have to negligence. But neglected by whom? Meanwhile aback had a relatively reliable summer after the 2 day fiasco of may. And then 72 hours after Maynard's dire proclamation there were 2 extended island wide outages. One was 10 hours the second was only 8 hours. Perhaps we would all be better off and the power would stay on if mr. Maynard kept his trap shut.

Unions ruined this country. Would mr. Maynard like to talk about the 7 men I saw working just last week. 7 men and 2 trucks to cut a few shrubs away from a power line. It took them 5 hours to do something I could have done on my own in 4 hours if only I had the magic switch to cut the power. Let's talk about that. We don't need to talk about removing the low oil sensor from the big genny cause she making too much noise.

Why does every Bahamian miss the elephant? question: Why do I have to pay VAT on bread and health insurance but my neighbor doesn't pay VAT when buy one number? Answer me that riddle before pontificating on "it wasn't me!"

What natural assets? Did I miss something? Aragonite mining was so valuabe ocean was sold to a cruise ship? Salt? Well maybe a little value there but we are taking a few thousand not million. Such bollucks.
