Jamaica proud you been meddling in Bahamian politics spitting on Bahamians. Face it there are few clean cities.Get a life and stop meddling like isis or Osama in other nations business or Bahamian politics. The rest of Jamaicans are proper decent respected citizens who leave other sovereign nations to run their politics and business of the people.

Bishop was in a bank and spent an hour and a half to be served and called for public outrage needs to heighten so businesses know how much theyre in the wrong. Bishop had also complained of increasing bank fees amoong others.Well it would be remiss for me to not to sugget that he should have upturned the tablrs of the money changers.

Where was the Central Bank when 73 million was moved out of the Bahamas without approval. Perspns need to go to jail, but then again with the Governor appointed by the govt and Directors appointed by the govt. Then again persons who allowed Barclays to be reversed acquisoned, or sold, or merged or what transaction with CIBC into First Caribbean without paying hundreds of millions in stamp duty needs to be accountable, then again allowing shares of Bahamas Supermarkets to fall from $22,50 per share to nothing and the Directors of the last company to use he employees pension money to buy equipment for the foodstore and lose all the money should be held responsible, then again there is one standard for the small man tiefing bag of roce and one of tuna getting 1 year2months jail time and another standard for white collar criminals. Where was Bishop when bank employees was protesting in Rawson Square, where was Bishop when supermarket workers protesting sll over Nassau??? Bishop has the procedures wrong, its the Shepherd who dhould be leading the flock, not the othrr way.

You are not the only one. The finance minister sat right across the table andsaw the Bank of the Bahamas fiasco with 100 million poured into Resolve for many bad loans from various other members and assets valued less than half and futther spent 40 million for rights issue then promptly after elections poured another 166 million dollars for loans with property values less than half while blaming former members for paltry 42 million in comparison missing then says its found, laying off workers cupboards bare but salaries paid going up. All the fire and fury.......We got goosied and read anout everyone flying off to some foreign country. Look at Carls Jr. Business is bad so they closed down, cut losses.

Shantytown pollution, latrines directly into well water, excrement visible, animals wandering, possibe source of any dangerous diseases. Unlicenced business activity small convenience shops etc. Millions of US currency repatriated out of the Bahamas. Cheap source of illegal labour gives false equilibrium for supply and demand of labour pushing down true wage as living expenses in shanty differs from regular Bahamian. We are fighting for our survival as Bahamians and successive govts have proven unable to stem the tide and as we write more illegals keep landing. There is no way that illegals should be breaching our national borders and even worse landing and running in the bushes and disappearing while their supportrs are informing persons they do not have to carry any identofication. We need to find out how Long Island have been so successfull in protecting Long Island.

Fully agree. We cannot sign international agreements to give each child legal or illegal an education and wait until 18 and expect that their foreign parents here illegally will be ducking the law and working to provide for the child until 18 to apply. Or enforce the other law we have on harbouring an illegal person. Officials need to be fired for incompetance or whoever is benefitting be charged with that big word they been using like malfleasance so they could be elected knowing big words.Laws are there to be followed like having to be outside the country to apply to the govt so that if refused noone can disappear etc.We need politicians with the same robust voices about what they are going to do when dey gets elected instead of getting elected and falling asleep. Or enact the legislation to recall the MP(s) and let the people take it from there. Admired the position of our PM to be without a ministry so as CEO which should really be CEO and fire people and its time that all laws and Ministries be coordinated to straigthen up an fly straight and with 35 MP that should be done fact.

Fully agree. Common sense is if a 36 year old man gets deported to an unknown land then some effort to contact his beloved family members should have been made. Just like any person just getting lock up watch how fast dey be calling every Tom, Dick, ma, pa,, MP, rev Dr., come help them.

The google site must be read in entirety.The google site must be read in entirety.We really need a Homeland Security force in itself to encompass multiple agemcies to deal with National Security matters and for starters put picture id next to names in citizenship ads and full comlete addresses so the public can respond as requested.
