OPEN LETTER TO THE PRIME MINISTER OF THE BAHAMAS
OPEN LETTER TO THE PRIME MINISTER OF THE BAHAMAS

April 12, 2021

I listened with bated breath recently while you were on a trip to Ragged Island, where you were asked by a reporter to state your opinion on oil drilling in our archipelagic waters. Your response was one of great admiration for me and anyone whose desire is to pass these pristine and national waters on to future generations totally unspoiled. There was absolutely no equivocation in your words. Your passion was such that none could possibly judge them as simply utterances from the lips of a conflicted leader. Your words were such that anyone of keen perception could judge them only to be directly from the heart which tells no lies.

Undoubtedly and unquestionably, your expressions carried enormous wisdom, knowledge and knowingness. You, spontaneously and succinctly, put forth all the elements to the country, primarily, and to any other entity which would fancy any notion to venture into the sacred area of the bosom, the breast, belly and womb of our mother ocean to knowingly or ignorantly cause havoc in our greatest and most precious and treasured natural recourse.

Picewell Forbes deserved better

March 04, 2021

I am saddened by the seemingly shoddy manner in which the Mangrove Cay, Central and South Andros MP Picewell Forbes has been treated by the Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) top brass.

Like Mr. Forbes, I was under the impression that his renomination for his South Andros constituency would’ve been automatic, as was assured in 2020, amid rumors that Monique Pindling, daughter of Sir Lynden Pindling, was canvassing the South Andros community with the aim at getting the nomination.

We cannot afford to find oil

February 16, 2021

With a few notable exceptions, the oil industry subsidizes failures. In the most corrupt countries, like Nigeria, it has not cured but rather exacerbated corruption and wastage. In backward tribal kingdoms (like Saudi Arabia), it has deepened and hardened a primitive conservatism that stifles dissent and militates against any substantial movement of the population up the human development scale.
