I do not condone any of it. But governments will spend. This goes to show that the previous $1.5M contract put almost exactly $1,450,000 in one person's pocket. while this time $100k was actually spent to purchase a durable good. stop with your useless idle political chatter it helps no one, it benefits nothing. maybe try to raise the standard of dialogue in this country instead of just being a donkey.

It is a whole lot better than the contract last year. $100k vs $1.5m. All the above can go sit small.

That may be true but the conditions are far better than Haiti.

Agreed. Thanks to the amendment to the bail act whereby anyone in the bahamas is now guilty until proven innocent. Way to go bahamas, way to go

Laughable really. I wonder if we could all file suit and say we only gonna pay 3% vat instead of 12? It would be nice really nice.

It has been higher in the past. As high as 116,000 overall it is actually down. Meanwhile abaco contributes way more to the public slush fund than it gets. Still a deathtrap road near spring city

Meanwhile I recieved a bank statement from June postmarked October. I and most other bahamian dont give a rat's @$& how its done. Just get the thing working. If it means paying for space with a politically connected person. Then so be it. The big elephant in the room that no one wants to discuss is that every single person in the country has a political connection. At least any person with some land or building that could or would be used by govt. So shut up sit small silly pundits

Grandfather once told me that when he started out as young budding lawyer in nassau. He could settle the probate of a deceased person in one day. He would walk down to the court file and have it all squared away by lunch time. No it takes 6 months to 5 years in this sodding cuntry. Question does something so vital to the cuntries functioning have to be outsourced to private because the govt is so inept or is it just a lack of testicular fortitude of the parliament? Or is it intentional?
