[Updated] The PLP have released a statement calling on the OBA to release a “secret plan,” saying “it’s time for the OBA to come clean.”
PLP MP Darius Tucker said: “Last night on ZBM, Kim Swan acknowledged that a consultant was brought in after the last election… and recommended a “secret plan.”
According to Mr. Moreno, it was recommended that the UBP split up, with the younger members forming a new entity. It was then reported that the secret plan recommended that the old UBP members rejoin the new entity and form a new party. Sounds familiar?
“When asked whether this plan exists last night, Kim Swan answered simply “yes.” The public needs to know exactly what is in this plan and what the OBA is hiding.
“For weeks, we’ve been asking what the OBA is really all about? The answers may be in this secret plan. It’s time for the OBA to come clean. Who do they really stand for and what are they really about?
“Is it really about the country or them getting power? Bermudians deserve to know the truth. That’s why today, we are calling on the OBA to release that secret plan,” concluded Mr Tucker.
Update 7.10pm: OBA Chairman Thad Hollis said: “The One Bermuda Alliance was founded on the need to bring change to Bermuda, to provide Bermuda with a Government that puts the people first. We were not founded on the basis of a ‘secret’ document.
“This matter was raised by the Government when the OBA was first formed and they return to it today in a thinly veiled effort to distract attention from their record, which has left thousands unemployed, thousands more underemployed, neighbourhoods that are unsafe, businesses closing down every week and a billion dollar level of debt that will burden generations to come.
“This is the reality that concerns Bermudians today. The Government should be ashamed that they have expressed more passion on this matter than finding solutions to the real problems facing Bermudian families every day.
“The Government has asked who is the OBA? That’s easy. We are a party that brought together Bermudians from all walks of life to make Bermuda better for all, leaving no one behind. Our focus remains on addressing the challenges facing Bermuda today.
“We will not be addressing this matter again. Instead we will continue listening to and working hard for the people of Bermuda and putting forward concrete solutions that work for them.
“Bermuda needs real change, not another five years of the politics of division and distraction,” concluded Mr Hollis.
