Oil drilling in The Bahamas... Bahamas Petroleum Company (BPC)... Perry Christie, Philip "Brave" Davis, The Progressive Liberal Party (PLP), and their dirty conflicting ways...

By Dennis Dames:

The response of the Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) deputy leader; Mr. Philip “Brave” Davis - to the question of conflict of interest in relations to his law firm’s connection to the Bahamas Petroleum Company (BPC), instigates more questions than answers.

Mr. Davis was quoted as saying the following in an article by one Dana Smith in The Tribune of April 27, 2012 entitled – DNA Demand Christie’s Resignation: "How does it become a conflict? I'm not in government. When I'm there, then the question might arise, then I'll know what I have to do."

But, this is general election season in The Bahamas; and Mr. “Brave” Davis and his consultant to Bahamas Petroleum Company (BPC) party leader – Mr. Perry Christie are offering themselves as alternatives to the existing administration via the Progressive Liberal Party (PLP).  Is Mr. Philip “Brave” Davis suggesting that things only become a potential conflict with a company that’s seeking to drill for oil in The Bahamas - which his law firm represents, only if - the Progressive Liberal Party is successful in defeating the governing Free National Movement (FNM) – on May 07, 2012?

This is scandalous!  Mr. “Brave” Davis, deputy leader of the Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) – has unknowingly accepted in his mind to probably start a government with a major scandal of international proportion; only if we - the Bahamian people innocently decide to vote for an oil scandal ridden gang.  The conflict of interest is in full swing Mr. ‘Brave” Davis; and it’s a pity that you cannot see the forest for the trees in this regard.

Bahamas Petroleum Company (BPC) wants to drill for oil in our waters and the Bahamian people doesn’t know the details of the deal, nor the environmental risks to our marine ecosystem; it is a major decision which requires reflective national consensus Messrs. Christie and Davis.

If it’s not a conflict of interest Mr. Davis, then tell the Bahamian People about Mr. Christie, the Progressive Liberal Party’s and your plans for Bahamas Petroleum Company (BPC) and Drilling for oil in The Bahamas before we vote on May 07, 2012 or face deserved rejection at the polls for your dirty conflicting ways.
