Nassau, Bahamas, February 10, 2017 – Whatever it is that Loretta Butler Turner is reportedly trying to build, seems to be crumbling or at least stalled, as a new report surfaces of a political ally being at odds with the vociferous Long Island, MP.
This time it is her own appointed Senator, DNA leader Branville McCartney, a fellow FNM defector who talks tough to Butler Turner and speaks frankly to the Nassau Guardian in a one on one.
McCartney in reference to some comments made by Butler Turner that she was thrown under the bus by him, said that he reached out to her about the statement made in the House of Assembly. It appears to be some mix up over what he said and then what she said, after he reportedly said whatever it is that he said… not the kind of interactions Bahamians need to see so close to a General Election.
The confusion has elicited this from Minister Glennis Hanna Martin in the House of Assembly this week, “I’m one of those people I don’t explain much in him, and I sat and, you in Long Island, take a break man, you’ve got your hands full, don’t get in my business, don’t get in my business, you’ve got your hands full, sort out your business man, you’ve got a complicated life right now.”
We pulled that audio (quote) from a 20-second video of Hanna Martin which is in wide social media circulation, where the Minister appears to be shutting down comments from across the aisle from the Long Island Member.
Earlier this week it was reported that Neko Grant and Dr. Andre Rollins are both at odds with Loretta Butler Turner, who formed a political coup, many call it, to have Hubert Minnis removed as Opposition Leader of Business in the House of Assembly; it worked. Butler-Turner has since December 11, 2016 been Opposition Leader in the House.
