he is right on many points, especially the concern regarding monopolies. Innovative thinking in the house is like trying to find the holy grail. Since Bahamar and Atlantis seem to work they can't think their way towards an alternative form of business that would lessen the impact of a single company closing shop. Our form of cabinet offers a herd mentality, only thing this herd is doing is throwing the country and its scarce dollars over a cliff.

This guy was murdered. I don't know why but sadly the reason could be as simple (Simply evil) as a gang initiation, a straight up hit, retribution for a perceived snub or someone wanting his job. Sad but true. If this person is found he should be interviewed on TV so people can see that these fellows don't give a scrap about anyones life including their own.

$30,000 is a drop in the bucket. Of course better than nothing but this is almost nothing considering the social burden these organizations carry. This amount isn't even equal to the price of ONE of the cars the government just bought. Shameful. Just cant seem to get priorities right.

This is a sad, pathetic, disgrace and reeks of incompetence,mismanagement and rampant corruption. These governments have no shame. If these dudes are the best we can field we are doomed. Can't even develop a competent contract?

This was nice. It humanizes her. I am not sure the stories of many of our leaders holds a candle to her story and accomplishments. I also wonder if her treatment in this entire thing has impacted her support of the FNM... If she remains a staunch supporter of the FNM, will this experience prompt her to move into frontline politics? Frankly I still don't understand why she was removed- besides the fact that she may have stood up to the government on an important decision...

Exactly. I was just thinking how stupid we were to drag race on Gladstone road with cars filled with more people than seats. Dumb.

I am not anti-Haitian, or xenophobic. But it does seem that the Haitian embassy is refusing to do what it needs to help the citizens they claim constitutionally, but need to reside elsewhere economically. Dragging their feet is a strategy and the Bahamas is losing the fight. I am told that in certain public schools in the Bahamas, more than half of the new entrants this term are unable to speak English. Did they just arrive? Were they born in the Bahamas and if so- how did they manage to reach school age unable to speak English while living in the Bahamas? I don't think re-assessing our immigration laws demonstrates xenophobia. I think applying it only to Haitians is a problem.We need to establish and enforce laws across the board to Chinese, Dominicans, Haitians, Jamaicans, Americans, Europeans, Filipinos- ALL. Until then- we ain't serious.

Sadly he appears to be in the same vein as many politicians historically -including Mr. Miller (who at least bothered to distance himself from contracts he may, or may not have benefited from, by one degree). I am glad he pointed it out. But in Bahamian political life it is a perfect example that we are conducting business as usual despite political change. The Pot always calling kettle black and the pig always calling the butter fat. It is a merry go round that gets the country nowhere.

Miller has a point but he always goes off track: "He was referring to revelations BPL's board approved the installation of a new home security system for ex-chair Darnell Osborne and had also paid for make-up services for Mrs Osborne and others in connection with a BPL-related photo shoot." Why should they pay for services concerned with promoting the company- makeup or otherwise- and frankly she would have needed extra security for the mess she needed to sort out.
