Another example of the 'hope and pray' doctrine.. would seem to me that if you watch Fox or CNN a couple years ago and noticed there was an event at a nuclear plant, and you knew your citizens were buying cars from that place but you have no system to test those cars to ensure no threat from radiation, a logical person who have said 'until such time that we can satisfy ourselves of the safety of these cars from this particular event, NO imports'...

The man is obviously a bonafide visitor, otherwise how did he get in the country? as for the other claims, let them (UK) present their case to court and courts will decide. no big deal.. world full of crooks, liars, murderers, etc. that he may be in the Bahamas means nothing.. The Saudi government holds other leaders hostage like they did the Lebanese prime minister and kill their own citizens.. north korea too.. our american friends kidnap world leaders like Noreaga, so bottom line as i see it is... he who is without sin....

All the white men and women at the EU want to hear from Minnis is 'yes sir! jump how high?'

This speaks volumes to the state of the economy. yes consumer purchasing habits have changed over the years and i'm sure most of the other issues mentioned play a part too, but reality is when businesses that have been established for decades like this one, the others mentioned and more, cannot survive any longer, it suggests there are major weaknesses in our economy.

Gov't should not be functioning in such ambiguity. There should be targets/deadlines for everything. As a minimum, i would expect the Press Secretary to say something like, the the PM has committed to making a decision by end of next week, for example. This procrastination is symptomatic of indecisiveness. Its not Ace's fault he is unable to give specifics however.

This issue of waste management is an utter disgrace. it happens every year. no wonder rats are everywhere. i live out east, its exactly the same situation. And how the hell on a working day, you are unable to contact the DEHS? aren't they paid to work like everyone else? This country becoming more and more pathetic with each passing day..

Not surprised by this. small countries, like those listed, are vulnerable to blackmail and coercion and unable to do anything about it. Its a coup using economic instead of military force. I'm sure there will be more to follow, as the big boys impose their will on everyone else.. We need to accept that we are no longer a sovereign nation.

So if we are going to be so pious and self-righteous, how long before this Taliban mindset starts stoning all the single women having babies? surely that must offend their moral standards?

This is a very dangerous precedent being set.. if this is allowed to stand, you have to wonder what will be the next restriction.. who set this rule and even more, how come only at Immigration?

i don't blame the Union.. people don't have any place else to go on vacation and for sure no place cheaper. I mean who wants to go to Mexico, Dominican Republic, Hawaii and Thailand on vacation anyway... they need us man, so lets show them white people who own Atlantis that if they dont like it, they can go.. we got lots of bahamian investors with billions of dollars waiting to take over.. In fact, some of them are the same ones dying to buy the Grand Lucayan...
