Our world is divided into various political and economic blocks, nations with their corporations allied to others in an attempt to create a free trade situation. Not that real free trade exists anywhere. Like selfish children nations and the economic trade blocks carry out illegal actions that go contrary to the agreements they joined. Trade barriers, preference to their corporations needs, create unnecessary conflict and uncertainty. Trade Organisations try to be democratic in nature, and where you find democracy you can also find national self interest.
All of you know that for decades I have been privileged to be the biggest media supporter of the new Prime Minister, the Hon Philip “Brave” Davis, QC. When he was a mere lawyer @ Messrs Christie; Ingraham; Davis & Company at Victoria Avenue, I was there. When he established his own practice @ West Hill Street north, I was with him and now that he has ascended the greasy pole, I have more work to be done.
During his campaign, Prime Minister Philip Brave Davis journeyed through each island of the Bahamas. His message was simple. It was a promise to help bridge our current divisions as he has always worked to do previously. He embraced the fact that what the country needed at this time was real leadership that seeks to de-escalate tensions, open lines of communication, and bring us together to heal.

For the attention of: Hon Phillip E Davis, Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas and Hon Dr Michael Darville, Minister of Health and Wellness . . .
A MAN who denied assaulting another man was yesterday granted bail before his trial.
Elections come and go usually every five-years so the organisers of them have the luxury of four plus plus years to get things together...all it takes is an eight-month jump forward and chaos.
The usual PLP stalwarts have come out with the predictable drivel in your letters page reference the election.
In 2017, the Free National Movement came to power atop a crest of lies, amplified by a deeply biased media. How very fitting that in 2021 it was swept away in a tide of ugly truths, despite all the best efforts of the media to mask them.
The Bahamian people have spoken and have elected the PLP, led by the incoming Prime Minister, the Hon. Philip 'Brave' Davis, QC (PLP Cat Island), by a landslide. This is no time for gloating. The heavy lifting is now about to begin. Brave will be well advised to hit the ground running on behalf of a trusting populace. In the weeks and months ahead he and his administration will have two immediate tasks: get the pandemic under control as much as humanly possible and to build back our economy better than before.
There are two critical and overwhelming issues which should be foremost for the new government and they are both interlinked.
How many more indeed. Lovely article. Lovely poem by Dr Bartlett. Grateful for his survival and his new message.
