These were the 1973 words on the floor of the Bahamas House of Assembly by the Honourable Carlton Elijah Francis, then Minister of Finance in the Pindling Cabinet, who, on religious grounds, opposed the Cabinet’s decision to expand casino gambling.
Immediately after saying his piece, Francis, resigned from Cabinet right there on the floor of the House. Our Westminster model of Government required it.
Today, Minister of Tourism, the Honourable Obadiah Hercules Whilchombe is yet to resign or be fired for publicly opposing the Christie Cabinet on its decision to wind-up of the company of developer, Sarkis Ismirlian.
Maintain the Honourable Path; Obie
Renegotiate!!!! The world is watching.
