Being limited in my knowledge on what exactly takes place in the Senate, I watched with eagerness and delight. I am aware that both houses, the upper and the lower houses, usual conduct debates. Nevertheless, I assumed that the Senate main purspose was to debate whether or not a particular law will be passed which the Bahamian public will have to follow as a result.
But lo and behold, the debate was on whether it was appropriate for Mr. Ingraham to have returned as the leader of FNM. (Forget the fact, that he has been the leader of the FNM for several months now, and that the Bahamian populace have accept this fact, for there is not much anyone can do to change this). My God! The same folly that happens in the lower house is duplicated with the upper house. Absolutely no one is earning their keep! Exactly what are we paying these so called honorable men and women for, is it just to talk? They all seem to be just grand standing, speaking just to hear themselves, saying absolutely nothing.
When will they conduct the people’s business instead of playing with our intelligence. Stating and restating the unnecessary.
