Thank you Sir Franklyn, we do need to support the Minister of Finance and resist the spending.
It may not be popular as we always want a no pain solution. I remember the December 1991 Budget and how unpopular the then Minister was.

Raising a nation is not the responsibility of the Business sector.
We need to stop making excuses for our substandard dumbed down education system.
To many of us have children and leave it up to the state to raise them. We need to point the finger at our culture and change it.
The rest of the world has passed us down and we are heading to "Haiti" status.

It is always "this is how we do it in The Bahamas". We don't like foreigners telling us what to do and we don't do anything because doing nothing is how we do things in The Bahamas.
It is time we grew up and let some professional and business enterprising foreigners in.

"Competent, un-conflicted, intelligent Bahamians"
Difficult to find these days. Most have left the country, having been chased out by the majority of narrow minded biggotes that make up most of the remaining population.

The longer we delay the harder it will be to negotiate and the more concessions we will be required to make.
In the meantime, countries like France can black list our financial services without us being able to properly defend our selves. No WTO protection or level playing field for The Bahamas.

***The bill stresses that the findings of air accident investigators cannot be used in criminal proceedings. The role of air accident investigators is to ascertain the facts, not ascribe blame. Englerston MP Glenys Hanna Martin and PLP leader Philip “Brave” Davis expressed concern about this, however, saying it may fly in the face of the emerging jurisprudence on the matter.***
Glenys Hanna Martin was the minister for aviation she should know that the same applies to investigation around the world. Then again she was a worthless minister

The passage of this bill is designed to increase employment and revenue of The Bahamas. The revenue is used to the social issues. No revenue and no employment means no solution to poverty, just more misery.

Absolutely correct. I don't care if you FNM or PLP. Are you qualified and capable of doing the justice to the job?

Good point, them too.
