Well, well, Mr. Perry Christie (PLP), Prime Minister, says that there may soon be significant reform at Bahamasair.
Pointing out that teh national "flag carrier" has cost taxpayers $500 million since its founding in 1973, (that's an average subsidy of $12,500,000 per annum) and they are going to deal with this big question "within the context of the philosophical commitment of the Progressive Liberal Party (PLP)".
Now there is classic double speak if there ever was such a thing.
The philosophy of the PLP has been to borrow and spend on Bahamasair since it was founded because of nothing more than the false pride folks in the political class get from being able to say the country has a "national airline". Sort of like having their picture on the money.
Furthermore, whenever meaningful reforms have been made while they were in Opposition, upon re-election the PLP have reversed them?
Mr. Christie indicates there is a big but. They "must know the facts".
Seems like the facts of continued deficit spending and borrowing have never gotten in the way before, and they don't appear to have slowed them down so far this go 'round either. At least not to date.
Only time, or an even more desperate public treasury, will tell.
I do hope he's sincere because the bleeding must stop for the sake of future generations.
