At last night’s Market Nights held in St George’s Town Square, UBP Senator Suzanne Roberts-Holshouser was strapped into the ducking stool and plunged into the water for the “crime” of “nagging her husband” following a brief “trial”.
The re-enactment is based on a part of Bermuda’s history, as the ducking stool was used for punishment in the 17th and 18th centuries. Tourists appeared to be very entertained by the re-enactment, becoming more amazed and quite amused when they discovered that the “victim” was, in fact, a sitting Government Senator.
