          Once again Advertising a politcal party on government property....Two faced dog and pony show PLP.

          This party, rally may have been an enteraining evening out, but we don't need to be entertained for 2 hours once in a blue moon, we need a party that will work for us and be accoutable to us Bermudians everyday.

          This is not the party that will do that for us, as has been proven for the past 5 years...wharf not good enough (but cost too much), crime prevention not good enough (but apparently PLP weren't aware of the escalating gang violence), School results not acceptable (school and education system costs more per child than private school, and minister pretends all is good.)...this list goes on and on.

          Let us get the OBA in and get this country working. the PLP can still hold their parties, so for the PLP nothing will change.

            People and their attitudes and the gang problem is not the P.L.P. Governments fault, its the fault of bad thinking on the people who are involved in that way of life, they have choices like everyone else, and they have avenues to leave their lifestyles but choose not to.

            Ok my car broke down thats governments fault, the world economy is in turmoil and its affecting every country, but its solely P.L.P governments fault. Yeah right, just like the advertisement of O.B.A. opposition propaganda on the round about coming into hamilton and all over the side of the roads and Johnny Barnes.

            People need to stop making silly excuses for things when in fact all of us need to step up and be accountable.

            Peace.

              That is what the people wanted the PLP to do, to stand up and be accountable!!!!!!!!!!! Now do you see the problem! Where are the PROMISED financials!

              ps Perinchief moved the gang related programs to Ministry of Youth, Families and Sports....Perinchief couldn't get it going...so he has effectively passed the buck !

        All the way down!!!! Before you vote PLP please answer these questions. Please name one area in Bermuda that is better today than 13 years ago?

        Economy
        Tourism
        International Business
        Local Business
        Debt
        Crime
        Immigration
        Employment
        Education
        Cost of Living

        None of these areas are better today - NONE!!!! So why in the world would you want a repeat performance or this disaster! Unless of course you are related to a PLP minister or benefiting from the friends and family program!

          If you want those answers as I am not a M.P. maybe you need to ask your constituency M.P. for those answers and not hypen up unrealistic things, just take a look all around the world, and also look at things without being angry to the point you are attacking me.

                Please read the Economic and jobs platform from the OBA and their other documentation, then go read the PLP documentation.

                Please be informed...it is your future you are rolling the dice on !!!!! Make sure you have a better reason than "Its proven"

                If the PLP had done a good job, then this election would be easy to know who to vote for, but they have failed us all time and time again...that is proven!

        Thanks PLP for your stupid, thoughtless rally, where the only people going would have voted for you anyway.

        I'm not one of them, because I vote for who deserves my vote, not because I am black.

            And what is the relevance of that statement? The woman says she's a voter...being born here is of little relevance. In fact remember this little inconvenient fact: Born Bermudian means this country had no choice to accept you as their own. Status Bermudians were chosen to be accepted...they were vetted, their characters assessed and GRANTED citizenship. I bet if some Born Bermudians had to go through the same process today, they would be DENIED!

          @Luis Suarez-----????really, your offended by African drumming and not because you are black you are not one of them and vote only for who deserves your vote?- look in the mirror and tell me what do you see? you better get a clue about what it is to be black and be careful who you call stupid..Politics by its mere name suggest shrewdness in managing, contriving or dealing, sagacious in promoting a policy..this game was not the brainchild of any original PLP members or black people ,so for them to have even achieved the ruling Government is a checkmate! Especially considering that the Europeans have always made us fight for everything that we have gained to just be recognized as equal humans when really Black people are the original Man and the inventors of all things!!put in a European system and still standing strong! count your blessings because you are Black and it means more than you know!When you learn bout your true identity instead of the surrogate identity you have been given all of your life, I am sure you will change your tune quicly and start beatin those drums yourself with your eight year old twins who will probably come to terms with the true reality of their existence before you! Educate them don't adjudicate others until you are sure of what you think you know!

    @ Luis Suarez PLP doesn't respect young people in general. This little rally that was or is still going on with the beating of loud african drums goes to show me that they don't have much respect for others besides those who are on the family,friends list. After all is said and done some people will remain the same others might change for better ,to be ohnest with you this kind of behaviour that the plp is displaying is not a surprise.

        Goes to show people will say anything and when they do, their true color comes shining through.

        If you want to vote OBA, do you.

        You dont have to bash people for choosing to vote PLP.

        You dont see PLP supporters bashing OBA supporters, it just goes to show they have a lack of confidence.

        When you are confident you are sure, and when you are sure, you have no need to badger, taunt, or ridicule.

        OBA supporters, please take the advice and use it, cause you all come across as edgy and quite childish.

        Go and make your vote, and lets see the outcome.

        PLP ALL THE WAY!!

        Peace!

You had one guy in this thread alone say essentially that whites have had no meaning full (in a positive way) contribution to the world how racist is that? That's why I'll never again vote for the PLP unless they have a major change or the OBA becomes completely unviable...

    The reason the OBA haven't had any rallies is because the island would then see that their main followers are the white community and they would look too much like the old UBP rallies. One thing..... You all have learned a lot from your mistakes. Good for you.

    The Premier promised not to run a negative campaign. More lies and deceit. Still running the big white bogeyman line. Don't go back to the 40 thieves. Don't go back to the Front Street boys. Hello any one paying attention? Bermuda obtains 95% of its revenues from International Buisness. Does the PLP realize that the images of the Premier in a camo jacket with a bunch of MPs making fools of themselves will not encourage business from the Areab world, the USA, or anywhere else, let alone make the CEO's of companies presently here want to expand, or stay.

    The problem is she is catering to her voter base who have no idea about the economy where the money comes from except the lies they are told and repeated. They just believe money grows on trees and is handed out by Government.

    The majority of posters are criticising the PLP rallies. If they are so bad, simply ignore them.

    I can assure you that the OBA will start having rallies within the next 2 elections once they realise the value of energising the voters. Many like to use the US as an example. Obama was well known for having huge rellies, especially during his first campaign. Note the Romney did the same.

    The examples of criticism show how out of touch some of the OBA supporters are. To learn some valuable lessons, you should attend the next rally at Berkeley on Saturday. Weather permitting the crowd will be exceptional.

    Note also that the optics of an OBA rally with a majority white support base will definitely not help the OBA's election chances.
