Why Bacon Should Be Declared Persona Non Grata

By P.J. Malone

The near constitutional crisis between the challenge to parliamentary privilege and the courts’ jurisdiction is a consequence of the egregious actions of one man, hedge-fund billionaire, Louis Bacon.

How did we get here? Well, it began with the burning down of fashion mogul Peter Nygard’s house. After spending millions of dollars building his dream home, someone burned down his house. Can you imagine the pain and suffering Mr. Nygard must have felt? How would you feel if it happened to you?

Well, Mr. Nygard decided that he wasn’t giving up on his dream. After spending millions to build his dream home, he was prepared to spend millions more to rebuild his home. Unlike Louis Bacon, who reportedly didn’t get the proper authorization and approvals before dredging for a marina and boat basin, Mr. Nygard applied for the proper approvals and authorization to rebuild his house.

Simple enough. Innocent enough. However, Mr. Louis Bacon decided that he did not wish Peter Nygard as a neighbour. So, Louis Bacon took it upon himself to stop Peter Nygard from rebuilding his home, by any means necessary.

Imagine that. A foreigner, who is a guest in this country, decided that he did not wish to have a particular individual as his neighbour. We’ve already discussed the reason in previous articles, which relates to Mr. Nygard inviting too many locals to his home in Lyford Cay. So, let’s look at the egregious acts of Louis Bacon.

1. Louis Bacon, a foreigner, who is a guest in The Bahamas, takes it upon himself to decide who is allowed to live in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas.

2. Louis Bacon has decided that Peter Nygard’s investment of millions of dollars in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas is not important to him.

3. Louis Bacon has decided that Peter Nygard shall not be allowed to continue to invest millions in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas and rebuild his home providing jobs in the process.

4. Louis Bacon has decided that he will attempt to dupe the Bahamian people by forming an organization that is supposed to be an environmental group with a U.S. 501c3 status, but whose focus is political as admitted to by its director and attorney, Fred Smith.

5. Louis Bacon decided that he was the big man around town and would therefore take the Government of The Commonwealth of The Bahamas to court, not for Governmental wrong doing, but instead to fulfill his personal agenda of preventing Peter Nygard from rebuilding his home on Lyford Cay.

6. Louis Bacon decided that his fight with Peter Nygard wasn’t strong enough with just the personal attacks and international smear campaign. Louis Bacon decided that it needed to be escalated to the next level and allegedly paid unsavory characters to falsely accuse Peter Nygard of a murder plot and then supposedly spread the word around town internationally so that many individuals apparently believe the farce.

7. Louis Bacon probably decided that he would get revenge, as some have speculated, on the PLP Government of The Bahamas by running countless political ads against the PLP Government through Save The Bays (because the PLP Government refused to grant him approval to build his marina and boat basin after he had already allegedly defied Bahamian law and built his marina and boat basin.)

8. Louis Bacon has decided that because he is the decider on who the Government should be in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, he would allegedly involve former party Chairman and FNM Senator, Michael Pintard, in his schemes, which resulted in Michael Pintard having to resign as a Senator and chairman of the Free National Movement.

8. Louis Bacon supposedly decided that he is the authority in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas and he should flout our democracy by filing an injunction against Members of Parliament who dare to call Save The Bays into question.

9. Louis Bacon has supposedly decided that the laws of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas are not sacrosanct and that parliamentary privilege has no standing when it comes to his business; so he is entitled to challenge parliamentary privilege to protect any revelations about Save The Bays and its activities.

10. Louis Bacon has apparently decided that the Commonwealth of The Bahamas is a country where he can do as he pleases including creating a constitutional crisis to achieve his own ends.

How is he doing all this? Through several individuals and Save The Bays. Let’s face it, who wouldn’t fight so vigorously on behalf of Louis Bacon for a good payday? But what about our country? Is our country’s democracy and sovereignty worth the good payday for a few Bahamians?

The issue is not Louis Bacon’s fight with another individual; the issue is that Louis Bacon is attempting to upset our parliamentary democracy in the process. Are we really going to let one man, one non-Bahamian at that, create such a crisis in our country because he feels he is rich enough to do as he pleases in a country that is not his own?

Why are we letting Louis Bacon use us in this way? Don’t we care enough to stop such flagrant disregard for our democracy and sovereignty? Where is our pride? Declare this man persona non grata and end the egregious acts of this usurper, Louis Bacon.
