When the House of Assembly last met the prime minister repeated a foolish statement which he first said at the launch of his candidates in Grand Bahama: that the PLP has lots of money and that they (voters) must take the PLP's money and vote FNM.
While there is a role for fun, jokes and humor in politics, this is no time in such a grave economic climate to make such a joke. Fun and games need to be put aside. The serious and underlying message of the comment is to support political prostitution. We have enough of the evil influence of money on our politics for a prime minister to be engaged in this tomfoolery.
The PLP's campaign is adequately funded. The PLP is not a rich organization but it can and will meet the ordinary expenses of running a general election. It can match the ordinary expenses of an election in a fair competition with the FNM. But we must remember that this is an FNM going into a general election with its coffers fat and brimming from all the multi-million dollar contracts that it has given to its supporters, lining their pockets with the treasury's money. The PLP cannot match that form of corruption in politics. Nor is it in the business of corrupting elections like the UBP and its successor the FNM have repeatedly done.
The PLP is poised to win this general election and voters should not be fooled by the prime minister's reverse psychology. It is the FNM's intention to buy support given their desperate political situation. I as a PLP will fight this at every turn with every fiber in my being. Ingraham and his party are bad for The Bahamas and must go.

Any money spent in a community for the residents of that particular community can be considered money well spent however, looking at the park one can see that it is in a deplorable state. Discredit should not be on Honourable Branville McCartney but the uncaring and destructive residents who have no self-respect and pride for their community. Oftentime when parks are repaired the very next day equipment is stolen or destroyed. With individuals of that nature no amount of money is ever sufficient.

PROGRESSIVE Liberal Party deputy leader Philip "Brave" Davis challenged Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham to reveal where the PLP's alleged "dirty money" is coming from.
Davis said Mr Ingraham has suggested that the PLP has been receiving campaign funding through unscrupulous sources.
During his address at the opening of his party's Southern Shores constituency office he asked the Prime Minister to directly name these sources.
"I don't know what he means when he says that the PLP is getting dirty money," he said. "Who we getting dirty money from and when?"
Davis mentioned Victor Kozen ...

A Bahamas-based broker/dealer's liquidator has pledged to "vigorously oppose" two legal applications - one by a convicted money launderer, the other by the Attorney General's Office -that could "put the security of the customers' assets held in the Bahamas in jeopardy".
Clifford Culmer, the BDO Mann Judd accountant, in his eighth report to the Bahamian Supreme Court on the liquidation of Dominion Investments, whose principal Martin Tremblay is serving a four-year prison sentence in the US after pleading guilty to money laundering, said the return of assets the broker/dealer had held in trust for their beneficial owners had ...
A man was fatally stabbed in the neck following a row over money, a Supreme Court jury heard yesterday.
Prosecutors allege that Charles Edwin Cunningham killed Darvey Basden on June 2, 2011 at an apartment at Constitution Drive.
Cunningham, who is on bail, has denied the allegation at his trial before Justice Indra Charles.
Basden's girlfriend, Georgina Wright, testified at the trial via video link.
She said while in the bathroom, she heard Basden arguing with someone in her bedroom.
She said when she came to investigate, she met the defendant, whom she called C.J., in her bedroom with Basden.
She said C.J. was asking for his money and he had a knife.
Wright claimed that she tried to take the knife and C.J. allegedly said "he would kill all of us if we tried [to] gang him".
After the alleged threat, Wright said her boyfriend asked her to leave the room with their three-year-old son.
She said when she returned to the room, C.J. was gone but she saw Basden in a pool of blood, barely able to speak.
Wright said she held his hand and placed cloth against the wound.
Wright said before he took his last breath, Basden told her that C.J. had stabbed him and that he loved her and their son.
Roberto Reckley appears for Cunningham. Kevin Farrington is the prosecutor.
