Once again, space in Fox Hill Prison should be reserved for everyone who will derive great financial benefit from the corruption and fraud associated with this project. Bahamian taxpayers should not have to foot the bill for such a project steeped in fraud and corruption involving past and current senior politicians.

There you go again singing for your supper. You obviously believe having vital financial services provided by criminal thugs is a good thing which can mean only one thing: The livelihood of you and/or one or more of your close family members is very much dependent on pay cheques from one of the racketeering numbers' bosses.

Now we get to see if Minnis is arrogant enough to double-down on the huge mistake he made in supporting Moutlrie's appointment as Speaker of the House in the first place. Moultrie sorely lacks the intelligence and temperament necessary for such a position, not to mention his very outdated fixed and warped views about a number of things best left unsaid. In any event, he has already violated on numerous occasions the oath he gave in accepting the appointment, resulting in great harm, damage and embarrassment to the Office of the Speaker of the House. He should have done the right thing and resigned the Speakership rather than force Minnis to now seek his removal. We shall soon see whether Minnis has a strong enough backbone to right a wrong, or whether he is as foolishly defiant as some claim him to be.

Nygard is nothing but a minnow in the grand scheme of government corruption. We Bahamians have much bigger predatory fish to worry about. See link below.

Out-of-control crime in the Bahamas is the primary reason why I now have a ranch in Montana and condos in Florida and Canada.

This is just sheer greed on the part of insurers. Even if the cartel of insurers shared a searchable Road Traffic Dept database that provided the five-year driving record of all holders of a valid driver's license, they would still gouge the public. Most drivers are totally unaware that their insurance does not cover the vast majority of people who drive their vehicle even though each and and everyone of the drivers not named in the policy may hold a valid driver's license. The greedy insurers always seek to narrow rather than spread the pool of insured risks because narrowing rather than spreading lets them royally gouge their customers.

The insurers are to blame in part for writing policies that limit the authorized drivers of a vehicle. Any holder of a valid driver's license for a particular class of vehicle should be able to drive any vehicle of that class with the consent of the vehicle's owner or an agent of the owner, which consent should be implied unless otherwise contested by the owner. Greedy insurers need to refrain from writing overly restrictive policies with the aim of putting themselves in a position to deny as many claims as possible. If insurers have a problem with the government issuing drivers' licenses to individuals incapable of operating a vehicle of a particular class, than they should take the matter up with the Road Traffic Department.

Two simple words describe the reason for the shortfall in expected funds: massive fraud.

You've clearly voted PLP in too many past general elections.
