Hey Fountain are you aware that hotels dont pay import duties or property tax? Are you not aware that residential homeowners do? Stop catering to the dozen or so hotel owners and consider supporting the several thousand foreign home owners in this country.any of these foreign home owners provide tons of support to bahamian families almost adopting them sometimes. While many hotel owners struggle to survive financially and rarely support any humanitarian efforts here. It's clear who your boss is. If you give homeowners the tax breaks that hotels get I am all for taxing them with business license and VAT.

A) is it a 'wave' if it lasts for 20 years?
B) the irrelevant irreverent PLP politicised what is otherwise a simple matter of housekeeping.
C) when RBPF can unbox those unused commodore 64s and that old dot matrix printer and start functioning in the 21st then we can start talking about bringing in new officers and energy

Seriously it takes 3 hours to make a 15 item witness statement which is carefully and laboriously hand written in neatly legible cursive. Meanwhile the slick criminal lawyers got state of the art electronics and training to get anyone off for anything. Wake the F up bahamas

Let's not forget that this exercise has and will cost the bahamian people somewhere in the region of $30,000,000 to $40,000,000 in staff pay, manager pay, operating costs, lost taxes, concessions on future taxes etc. Its not really that great a deal if you consider it would take 10 years for gobmint to realize a ROI on this whole shenanigans. I'm not arguing it will and has helped a few hundred bahamian but it was at the expense of the rest of the Bahamas.

Ahem. I hazard that this one maybe a bit delusional. I fail to see how one is connected to the other. Further implementing national health insurance is hardly anti-socialism. Secondly having the public sector buy out a private sector asset is again a socialist move? Am I wrong? Dis guy got numb nuts
