Culmer, Hanna-Martin trade jabs

Free National Movement (FNM) Chairman Carl Culmer said Englerston MP Glenys Hanna-Martin’s recent commentary about the prime minister “only reveals how deeply she has been stung by the truth”.

Last week, Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis said Hanna-Martin is “plenty talk and no action” and “spends all her time in the House [of Assembly] rowing morning, noon and night”.

The Englerston MP fired back, calling Minnis the “lousiest prime minister in Bahamian history”.

On Sunday, Culmer said, “The lady only reveals how deeply she has been stung by the truth.

“Mrs. Hanna-Martin had a lot to say in response to the prime minister calling her and the PLP (Progressive Liberal Party) out for their miserable failure to deliver results to the Bahamian people but, unsurprisingly, she did not refute the prime minister’s message.”

The chairman said that it is unlikely that Hanna-Martin will ever become leader of her party or prime minister “because she lacks the support in her party and the wherewithal and temperament to be leader”.

But the Englerston MP responded to Culmer’s comments, asserting that her “proven track record both ministerially and as a MP…speaks for itself”.

She accused the government of “enriching and empowering the wealthy elite and foreign interests in this country”.

“The FNM is correct,” Hanna-Martin said.

“My temperament will never allow me to sit idly by and allow this to happen, and I will fight for my country every step of the way.”
