Progressive Liberal Party Chairman Bradley Roberts firing some serious shots at the two leaders of the Free National Movement.

Yesterday in a press statement he referred to Opposition Leader Dr. Hubert Minnis as a “Big joke” and his Deputy Leader Peter Turnquest as dishonest.

“Dr. Hubert Minnis is one big joke and cannot be taken seriously

“Dr. Minnis and MP Peter Turnquest are both woefully dishonest as they are fully aware that the Supreme Court sealed the Baha Mar liquidation conclusion and will in due course unseal the same, and all details will be disclosed for the benefit of the public.

“The most recent public statement made by FNM leader Dr. Hubert Minnis and MP Peter Turnquest on the subject of Bahamar is helping to bring into focus two points of national importance, having sold the soul of the FNM, Minnis now has a one man boss.

“The second is Minnis is prepared to do the bidding of his boss, including the parachuting of three former associate and employees of the one man boss, this now obligates Minnis and Turnquest to make statements which serves no purpose but to create controversy where none exists,” Mr. Roberts said

Roberts then referred to several instances of corruption during the FNM’s tenure.


“Hubert Minnis is pretending to care about transparency and the public interest but where was Hubert Minnis on the international embarrassment the FNM caused The Bahamas with the revelations of the secret and corrupt BEC deal with French energy giant Alstrom under the watch of the FNM government?

“Also, to this day Minnis remains silent on the beneficial ownership of his former cabinet colleagues in the Arawak Cay Container Port and further, who could forget the cloud of secrecy surrounding the sale of the Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC) to Cable and Wireless, one of the worst deals ever involving the Bahamas government.



“Even in opposition the FNM leader is involved in secret sordid, questionable, corrupt and controversial relationships. To this day Minnis could not explain his relationship and that of his disgraced former chairman Michael Pintard with Toggie and Bobo, characters that Dr. Minnis called gangsters and criminals from his feet in Parliament,” Mr. Roberts said.

This is the latest in the back and forth between the two parties, with FNM Chairman Sidney Collie yesterday calling Roberts “delusional”.
