Brent Symonette- St. Anne's

Not far behind was Brent Symonette's wife with feathered plumage in deep blue.
Brent 'Unco-operative'? - Usually reliable sources inside the FNM were saying all over Grand Bahama this week that the sole FNM MP in New Providence Brent Symonette is mightily peeved at being overlooked for the post of Leader of the Official Opposition. "They didn't even give Brent the chance to refuse the position," said the source, "although when the FNM needed money they took it from him and his Mummy in a hurry. Mr. Symonette is said to have threatened to take a more independent posture in parliament rather than towing the FNM party line because of this perceived insult.

BRENT SYMONETTE ON BEING WHITE AND FNM...
BRENT SYMONETTE ON BEING WHITE AND FNM Brent Symonette is one of only three whites in the Parliament of The Bahamas. He is the lone MP elected for the FNM from New Providence. He is the son of a former Premier Sir Roland Symonette. The FNM is looking around for Leadership. He is independently wealthy with a net worth declared of some fifteen million dollars. Naturally some people have asked the question whether or not he is the person to whom the FNM should look to get itself out of the political doldrums. Mr. Symonette discussed the question on radio Tuesday 6th August. He said that there ought to be a leadership convention soon for the FNM. He did not say whether or not he would run. But he did acknowledge that many people had put his name forward. He then raised the question of race. Said he: "It has to be clear, if there's a strong feeling against me as Brent Symonette, either because of my father being a former Prime Minister or my father being a UBP, or me being white or me being independently wealthy or me living in Montagu, there's no point in fighting that uphill battle." Things that make you go: hmmm! All we would say is don't sleep on this fellow. He is aggressively ambitious and wishes to succeed his father to the office, white or not. You can bet that this salvo on the radio is part of a strategy that he is employing. He knows that in order to conquer the stigma, he has to broach the subject head on and be able to get the discussions on race going in the Black community.
