This is great...You know, it should not be a surprise that we can do well at water polo. We should be producing an army of Atlanteans! Swimming, diving, boating, rowing.

If the government cares about Grand Bahamians and this area is a pristine as I've heard, the Ministry of Tourism should be down there scouting TODAY on how they could advertise it to the world in a massive Eco tourism campaign. The government should then assist grand bahamians to construct a quaint well organized native village two miles from the location. THAT would show support for Grand Bahamians. The last thing anyone with sense would think when looking at such an area was "this is perfect for an oil refinery"
My belief is these people, while bungling , aren't dumb. This is all about grabbing that land.

I'm going on the assumption that the BNT knows exactly where the oil refinery will be, and going out n a limb that they know exactly where the national parks are. This is Kreiger's company, he was a "ceremonial" CEO, so him "resigning" makes no sense. Him signing Dhuna's signature makes no sense. The removal of the BEST commission from Environment makes no sense. That the management team is made up of a failed car salesman and a failed boat builder makes no sense. If I remember the car salesman's former employers statement correctly, ~"*hes not too bright, I don't know who would give him all that money*". The storyline that this was a "mistake" doesn't make any sense, this was deliberate, they knew exactly who Kreiger was, they asked him to stay hidden to deceive the Bahamian people and he didn't. Then they told us the contract HAD to be signed on the 19th and Dhuna showed up a few seconds too late.nothing about this makes sense. There's a reason they're pushing this and it has nothing to do with caring for Grand Bahamians

"*The bill is working*"
How do we measure that? Have any Bahamians been trained, have "high paying jobs" hit the inner city, how much money hit the treasury? Or are persons taking advantage of an inexperienced desperate administration willing to give away the kitchen sink?

I say ouch when I see good people being used as pawns in someone's maybe if I drag some people to court in chains for 1500 total, start an investigation to find one fire hydrant missing and call the GM before the board to ask him "what that 100 dollars was for"... Just maybe they'll make me a cabinet minister campaign.
This is not productive

It's Kreiger's company!!! The entire goofey management team is comprised of his goofy fishing buddies, Dhuna's current employer said as far as he knew Dhuna was just doing some work for the company he wasn't aware that Dhuna was managing director. Then you have the failed car salesman. The oil refinery being plopped in the middle of a nature reserve and the language that said we're going ahead no matter what the EIA says. Don't even speak about the weird clause about being able to buy commercial property to build residences. Any sixth grade student could tell you what that meant. **This was not a mistake. This was deliberate.There were most likely dozens of civil servant technocrats who would have warned you that you couldn't do what you were doing**
If you want to fulfill anything you promised to the Bahamian public you need to start hiring qualified people who know what they're doing. Rather than Mrs Curry leaving Social Services, Lanisha should have been made to hand in her resignation. We need a qualified Minister of Finance and Financial secretary. Those two guys will be just ok. They both have extensive networks. The country needs experienced knowledgeable economists in Finance.
If you continue to appoint people who are loyal only to you, you will see the Oban antics repeated over and over again, because the cronies won't tell you anything you don't want to hear. They like their pocket better than they like you.

Not sure who is giving Dr Minnis these magnificent PR blunders, Mrs Minnis could have accomplished the same thing without putting a title on it. And if the annual budget is only 10,000 Dr Minnis could have funded that easily. He doesn't need his salary. **This appointment no matter how well intentioned is just plain off. I'm not saying intentions aren't good but, it just "looks" bad**. For any FNM supporter who claims it's a great idea, what would you have said if Perry Christie had created an Office of the Spouse for Bernadette Christie? Every PM's wife has managed to execute First Lady responsibilities and special causes without an office. We must start looking at these things objectively.
