Perry Christie happens to be one of my favourite people.”, Mr. Tynes said.“I voted PLP, most Bahamians voted PLP. We chose Perry Christie to lead our country out of the mess it was in. Now five years later what has Christie given us in return?”, Tynes continued.Turning his attention to the failed referendums on gaming and gender equality, Mr. Tynes noted that in both instances Mr Christie lied about his administration’s agenda and wasted millions of dollars on propaganda.“He also gave us VAT,” he said, “a crippling tax burden on the poorest of our people who are now literally starving to death. He gave us a series of downgrades in our credit rating as a country to our current junk status and now we are in danger of our Bahamian dollar being devalued.”Mr Tynes said: “Meanwhile violent crime in our country has gone completely out of control and now comes the shocking news that senior well-paid members of Christie’s cabinet are out there begging rich foreigners for personal favours instead of working to protect our interests as a people.”He added: “Let us face the truth, Perry Christie has been a dismal failure and complete disaster.”#magneticmedianews#harveytynescallsPMafailure Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more
