Is politics really for McAlpine?

Frederick McAlpine.

Dear Editor,

In my view I feel that the good reverend needs to come clean and say what is his real problem, with his consistent whinging?

Is it because he, being an elected member, is being outshone by the senator as the point man in Grand Bahama – a role he feels he have an inherent right to?

Or is it that he’s just not a team player? Being the chairman of the Hotel Corporation is not a high enough profile position for the good reverend?

My understanding is he was offered the position of deputy speaker for the House of Assembly, which he turned down; he was looking to be appointed a minister, but was sorely disappointed when he was overlooked.

Rev, maybe you should put your criticisms to rest, and put that energy into saving souls. Leave politics to the politicians. Remember: Some were called, some were chosen, some just went. What category do you fit in?
