Today on MORNING BLEND:
Listeners have their say on the reports suggesting there is support for Prime Minister Perry Christie to lead the PLP into the next general election in 2017, and beyond, and the persistent rumours that some are trying to lure former PM Hubert Ingraham out of political retirement, and back into frontline politics and the leadership of the FNM. By the end of another 5-year term, Mr. Christie would be nearly 80, and Mr. Ingraham would be approaching 75!
“In The News”, police are investigating two separate sexual assaults in Bimini. This sparks a spirited discussion about the reported increases in rapes, attempted rape and other sexual assaults in the country.
Plus, more on the “spin” on both the former and the most recent BTC deals, and the gambling referendum.
And February is Heart Month, and the Bah. Heart Association has a full schedule of events planned.
