Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham's Statement on Passing of Bishop Michael Eldon

Nassau, Bahamas - On
behalf of the Government and people of The Bahamas I extend condolences
to Dr. Keva Bethel, to the extended Eldon Family and to the whole Anglican
Community on the passing of the Rt. Rev. Michael Hartley Eldon, retired
Lord Bishop of the Anglican Church in The Bahamas and the Turks &
Cacios Islands
 

Bishop
Eldon leaves a significant legacy not only in the Anglican Community
but in the annals of a young nation in which he was the first local
priest to become prelate, having assumed that high church position fully
a year before we gained Independence in July of 1973...

Dear Editor,
Having family and friends in The Bahamas, I read the article in The Freeport News – A church divided (December 28 issue).

Fred Mitchell MP Fox Hill on Majority Rule Day 2011

Nassau, Bahamas - Enclosed are remarks by

Fred
Mitchell MP Fox Hill.

Mr. Party Leader, members and guests, it is my honour to
have been asked to speak here this morning in substitute for Dame Marguerite
Pindling who has asked me to say how much she regrets not being able to join
you all here this morning.  She will be speaking at a panel discussion at
the Yamacraw Branch tomorrow evening on this subject.

This subject of majority rule and the coming to power of
the PLP has been my life's work. It is  a strange feeling today that I
have speaking about these events because I remember all too clearly sitting in
the Cabinet office in 1976 at the Churchill Building talking to Sir Lynden
Pindling about  Black Tuesday, an event which had always fascinated me in
my childhood...
