Bahamians being offered better deal

WE ARE baffled by Opposition Leader Perry Christie's harping on the "secrecy" surrounding government's memorandum of understanding with Cable & Wireless (LIME). Surprised because on the desk in front of us is a file of the Christie government's secret negotiations with Bluewater that were then too sensitive to be shared with the public and of which no one knew the details until the Ingraham government came to office and opened the books. The union, by its own and Mr Christie's admission, was a part of the negotiations and approved the sale.

A week before the election, which resulted in the Christie government's removal from office, it was discovered that the privati ...

Large or small -- paid demonstrations prove nothing

THERE are those -- mainly BTC unionists and opposition politicians-- who maintain that the majority of Bahamians are against the sale of BTC to Cable and Wireless.

In today's Tribune Dr Elwood Donaldson, a former cabinet minister in the Pindling government, said his group believes that the majority of Bahamians agree that selling BTC is a bad idea. He claimed that such a sale would reverberate through history as the "greatest blunder" of any Bahamian government.

Rodney Moncur, another political activist, has called for 10,000 demonstrators to converge on Bay Street to object to the sale of the telecommunications company on the day that it is debated in parliament. He has urged the PLP ...

“I see now the police are putting up barricades again as if they are preparing for animals, but the will of the people is the strength of the people.?I guess if The Bahamas is ready and this government is ready to see a small Egypt then they are going to get it,” said Bahamas Communications and Public Officers Union (BCPOU) President Bernard Evans.

'Political operatives' and the 'criminally-minded'

POLICE Staff Association president Dwight Smith during an interview with the press after the February 23 demonstration on Bay Street urged politicians to stop politicising issues.

He was defending his Force from a politician's criticism of the worth of police reports, which were used in another case to decide the suitability of a person for a high office. Mr Smith was also smarting under the criticism of how "over prepared" police were when they arrived on Bay Street for the BTC demonstration. It would have been irresponsible - after a union leader had declared that a "small Egypt" was needed on Bay Street to protest the sale of BTC - if police had not come fully prepared -- wi ...

Former BREA president blasts association

A former president of the Bahamas Real Estate Association (BREA) has levied a number of criticisms against the association in a press statement and subsequent interview with Guardian Business yesterday.
Pat Strachan, a two-term former BREA president, is calling for an amendment to the Real Estate Brokers and Salesman Act (1995), saying that the government erred in incorporating BREA into the Real Estate Board, according to the press release.

“In all jurisdictions where the real estate profession is legislated, the Real Estate Board or the body responsible for regulating by law the profession of real estate is appointed by the government and the association officers are elected by its ...

The PLP 'is not organising BTC demonstration'

By TANEKA
THOMPSON

Tribune Staff Reporter

tthompson@tribunemedia.net

THE Progressive Liberal Party is not organising protesters to flock to Parliament next week for an anti-privatisation demonstration, said party chiefs yesterday.

If PLPs do protest it will be because of their personal beliefs not party affiliation or on orders from the upper echelons of the official opposition, they added.

Workers' Party Leader Rodney Moncur has called on PLP leader Perry Christie to rally 6,000 supporters for a planned protest against government's $210 million sale of BTC to Cable & Wireless Communications.

"Mr Moncur was pontificating, the PLP marches to its own drum," said PLP Chairman ...

Unions granted leave to appeal judge's BTC decision

THE unions attempting to block the sale of 51 per cent of BTC to Cable and Wireless were granted leave yesterday to appeal a judge's decision which stated that they lacked the legal standing to bring a suit.

In January, the Bahamas Communications and Public Officers Union (BCPOU) and the Bahamas Public Managers Union (BCPMU), filed a joint action in the Supreme Court raising a number of issues. An appeal hearing in the Court of Appeal is set for Monday, March 21 - the same day as the House of Assembly debate on the BTC sale.

The unions contend that the government does not have the legal right to sell BTC.

Justice Neville Adderley in a ruling on the matter last month stated, "This case appea ...

IF BTC workers walk off the job, they have "no guarantee" of keeping their employment, warned Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham, in his latest comments on the BTC sale.

Stores report strong sales of car seats

Stores in New Providence are out of booster seats, the clerk of a baby supply store told The Nassau Guardian yesterday, adding that people with toddlers are seeking to comply with seatbelt regulations and avoid being pulled over and ticketed by police for not having the child protection device.
Speaking on condition of anonymity, the clerk said her department store sold out of booster seats, which are used for toddlers up to age five, faster than baby car seats. However, she added the store is awaiting a new shipment.
"People are calling to see if we have any (booster seats) available," she said. "And we barely have any more car seats."

PLP wants independent expert on BTC deal

The Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) is suggesting an independent expert be brought in to look into both the Bluewater and Cable and Wireless Communications (CWC) offers for the purchase of shares in the Bahamas Telecommunications Company?(BTC).
The PLP said it would be more useful and transparent to the public if an independent expert was immediately engaged to make the comparison between the two offers as opposed to statements the government continues to release regarding the offers.
Early this month, the government signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with CWC for the sale of a 51 percent stake in BTC at a cost of $210 million, plus stamp tax. Back in 2007, the PLP was discussing a deal with ...

Two weeks to check BTC sale documents 'a slap in face'

TWO weeks to scrutinise "all the facts and documentation" relating to the sale of BTC to Cable and Wireless is a "slap in the face", opponents claimed last night

"Two weeks notice is after the fact. For a document you have already signed, several weeks ago, you are going to set the date for its release two weeks prior to its debate in the House of Assembly," said Terry Miller, president of Civil Society Bahamas, an umbrella body for civic organisations.

"In the absence of all the facts, what we can clearly say is that memorandums of understanding made on behalf of the people of The Bahamas should not ...
