Bogart, you are right. It is not the Haitians' faults. It is the fault of every single Bahamian who gives them a red cent.
If you went to Haiti and were unable to earn one dollar to buy food, you would soon come back home and see if aunt Loretta had an extra hot dog in the fridge to give you.

Remember Minnis said he can't wait to see Haitian fruits & vegetables on the store shelves in the Bahamas.

I think these are all racist rants against Dominican Republic citizens because of their brighter skin colour. If they were Haitians, the officers would be out there helping them load the crayfish out the traps into the boats and giving them some free Kalik.

Bogart...we already got one. The one in charge of transport...LOL. What a strange office to assign him to, by the way.

Please don't say anything bad about Haitians. You will be called a racist. Just hand the keys to the country over to them and be quiet.

Many here are correct that appraisals should have been done first etc etc regarding the purchase back from the Chinese.
However, the Chinese have the money and we are mere beggars and that is why things have to be done their way or no way.
Let this be a lesson to Govt and to individual Bahamians to NEVER do business with the Chinese. The business offers/investments/whatever sound really really good, but you get a different sense with your nose.

Geostorm, i agree. The PM should not be called such foul language. I hope that poster apologizes here in this group. The PM position deserves respect regardless.
I myself wish to apologize for calling Zhivargo, the former head boy of Hawksbill High, an idiot yesterday. I just wish he had more care for his people and did not cast them into the belly of the WTO slave ships like that which was done to his ancestors. It's not good to repeat mistakes.

...now reading the rest of the article, I see what we get in return for our $40m is a pipe dream, a hope, a prayer, a chance, a possibility, and an "open market". I will take each one of those words written boldly on a piece of paper at the end of this month to BPL and ask them to strike off the balance on my light bill, because they are worth 40 million dollars - I will tell the cashier that she can keep the change.

"THE Government will forego $40m in revenue under its first World Trade Organisation (WTO) offer, its chief negotiator suggesting that accession will impact just 20 percent of the economy..."
NO Zhivargo, you idiot, the people of the bahamas will foregoe $40m in revenue. you don't care because you can just raise VAT to 20%, and we have to pay it. Do you even live on the planet Earth, much less the Bahamas?
