LOL. You do your namesake, the famous French philosopher, a disservice.

The yapping little white-haired poodle has over the years been heard to say over and over again: "I owe the success of my family's SuperWash laundry business to uncontrolled illegal immigration. Undocumented Haitians and Jamaicans in the Bahamas are my bread and butter. Therefore the more of them the merrier as far as I'm concerned."

You truly are a dunce @John. One of the first things Brent Symonette personally did on being appointed Minister of Immigration was expedite the approval of all permit applications that had been submitted by his many friends in gated communities like Lyford Cay, Old Fort and Albany. And the 'wealthier-than-you-people who live in those gated communities, and who you obviously envy so much, are most careful to ensure they dot their i's and cross their t's on such matters.

Small wonder Tony Allen recently resigned as a director of BoB shortly after being appointed to BoB's board with Wayne Arahna. It seems Tony got in there, took a quick look, and then jumped ship and ran for the hills as quickly as possible in an effort to keep the solid reputation he developed as a banker with Scotia Bank in tact. This begs the question: Why is Arahna still willing to risk it all when it comes to his own reputation? It is only common sense that the new Minnis-led administration met an insolvent BoB on May 10, 2017 that it should have immediately placed in liquidation. Moreover, anyone with an ounce of common sense also knows that it is most unwise and imprudent to have any government of our country (whether FNM, PLP or whatever) owning a controlling interest in a clearing bank open to the public with publicly listed shares when it is the government itself that effectively also controls the entire regulatory apparatus of all banks domiciled in the Bahamas. Talk about a major conflict of interest!!

There was a photo of the sloop in yesterday's edition of The Tribune. Besides, I would like to think that Minnis himself and those reporting to him on this most embarrassing matter were not duped by fake news!

I have met QC Smith on several occasions, the last time being shortly after the passing of the late Colin Callender, Q.C.
