|FNM: 'PLP Is Posterless and Leaderless'|
|Friday, 20 April 2012 07:17|
The Claim: The PLP and their allies have been airing radio ads attacking the FNM for running without a deputy prime minister.
The Truth: While the FNM has put forth a strong, diverse group of candidates from which a deputy prime minister will be chosen, the PLP is a party in need of a Leader.
From The Punch, April 16, 2012:
Perry In Rage As PLP Bans His "Leader" Posters.
Deputy Leader Brave Davis and PLP war-room strategy chief Senator Maynard felt that it was in the best interests of the party to display only photos of the candidates on the street lampoles of constituencies – and keep Christie’s feeble face “hidden out of sight and out of mind.”
Senior PLPs reportedly felt that displaying Christie’s photo nation-wide would hurt rather than help the PLP’s election campaign.They reasoned that Christie’s reputation as a weak and indecisive leader was damaging to the PLP’s image.
Isn’t it ironic: Christie sent PLP chief graphic artist to Miami with orders to get posters of Christie printed…and was told it was “too late” to produce the posters.
Christie feels the no poster strategy will cause the PLP be viewed as Leaderless, Chiefless and set to remain Powerless as the party appears to be unfit to govern.
Meanwhile the streets of all 38 seats are “painted red” with posters of FNM Leader Ingraham. The PM said: "If the PLP ever get around to putting up posters of Perry the words on them should be: "PLP: UNPROVEN LEADERSHIP."
They are fighting over power amongst themselves not because they "believe" in the Bahamas, but because they believe in their own interests. If Christie can't even run his own party, how can he run the country?
Same Empty Promises. Same PLP.
