Bradley Roberts Tribute to Sir Albert Joel Miller and the FOCOL Holdings - Aug 30, 2015 - 9:42:45 PM

I recently attended funerals of two very close colleagues - Alfred Bismark Coakley MBE and Sir Albert Joel Miller - and as I reflected on my dearly departed brothers and colleagues, the name of another of our brother and friend, Stanley Alexander Wilson Jr. who died on Oct 5th1990 at a young age of 48, constantly came to mind.

It was Stanley Wilson who Sir Lynden Pindling had seconded to Grand Bahama to review and offer advisement to his government on the transformation of Freeport. It was Stanley Wilson who convinced Edward St. George and Jack Haywood to sell at market value a number of Companies that were owned by the Grand Bahamas Port Authority. Freeport Oil Co Ltd...

DNA: PLP crime strategy = Much of the same - Aug 30, 2015 - 4:08:59 PM

After months of escalating gang violence, near double digit homicides, multiple international travel warnings by the US, UK and Canada – the most recent of which was issued just last week – as well as a recent spate of police involved shootings, National Security Minister Dr. Bernard Nottage has finally broken his silence on the terror which has gripped our communities.  After months of waiting for this Christie led administration to outline its plan of action in dealing with the scourge of crime, Bahamian families who have been impacted by the criminality facing our country and those who live in fear of being next on the list of the criminal element were deeply disappointed by the Minister’s hollow promises and political rhetoric.

The Minister began his address by citing the importance of valuing the Rule of Law. Ironically enough however, this administration, like the ones before it, has failed at every turn to do just that. In fact, I dare say that the complete lack...

I begin by renewing my condolences, and the condolences of the Government and people of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, to Lady Miller and the entire family of the great Bahamian whose passing we mourn today, even as we celebrate his life; a life that was blessed with the gift of long years and marked by devoted service to his country, to his family, and to the institutions, both public and private, that he served so ably and so loyally during his long and fruitful life.
 
The word "great" is one that we tend to overuse in speaking of the dead. In the case of Sir Albert Miller, however, we stand on the surest and most certain of foundations when we characterize him, as I unhesitatingly do today, as a truly great man and an authentically great Bahamian...

Bahamas government responds to Standard and Poors downgrade


On Tuesday of this week, Standard and Poors cut the sovereign credit rating of The Bahamas from BBB+/A-2 to BBB-/A-3, citing “depressed (economic) growth” and the ongoing Baha Mar dispute as the principal reasons. In its assessment, the credit agency predicted economic growth of less than one percent over the next several years and a greater than 33% chance of another downgrade over the next six to twenty-four months. The country’s bonds maintained investment grade status though...

I echo and join in the sentiments of the nation that the national address by the Minister of National Security was inconsiderate, lacked depth and eons too late.

The Minister of National Security in a surprising turn of events finally found his voice and addressed the nation in a "snap address" in the midst of the entire country preparing for a forecasted direct hit by Tropical Storm Erika. How untimely! How insensitive! How late! The Minister has once again insulted the Bahamian people.  He has not given the vexing and heart wrenching crime problem the priority it needs, especially since the last time we heard from him was in early July, and even then it was another announcement...

Last night the Minister with responsibility for National Security broke his long silence on the PLP government’s plan to tackle the escalating crimes, especially violent crimes throughout The Bahamas.  His statements confirmed the views of thousands of Bahamians and the FNM- that the Minister is ill suited for this job at this critical juncture and that the Christie led administration lack concrete plans that will impact crime reduction in the short to medium term.
