  4. James says:

    PLP obviously still out of touch if they can hold $250-a-plate *banquets* (seriously?) in this economic climate. How many people can afford to go to “banquets?”


    a sumptuous feast; especially : an elaborate and often ceremonious meal for numerous people often in honor of a person

    • Creamy says:

      It’s Walton’s acceptance speech.

    • I totally agree James…Waaaaaaaaaay out of touch! Man in general is like water, must find his own level.

    • Trust NOT says:

      Yes its a steep price for most of us but we will sacrifice and support a party that supports our family, we are family.

      OBA has big money they don’t have to have fish frys – they get $350,000. without asking and thats what we know, can you imagine the ones we don’t of?

    Banquet….nice for some ! Shame about the tag line at the bottom. A complete fabrication:

    “Come one, come all, and celebrate with us as we continuing working hard on behalf of all Bermudians!”

    Although I’ll probably never get an answer to my very old question pertaining to the real meaning of those old slogans ‘Make it Happen’ and ‘Keep your eye on the prize’ maybe someone could explain the meaning of ..

    ‘Our legacy . OUR RIGHT , our future’ .

    Don’t worry about the beginning and ending parts . Just the middle , please.

    • Creamy says:

      We already know what their legacy is.

    • Keepin' it Real!...4Real! says:

      unfortunately the middle part doesn’t exist anymore…i’m surprised you haven’t noticed…

  7. This looks like this will be a very good keynote address by a serious heavyweight, hopefully the replay will be posted on the plp’s website at least

  8. hmmm says:

    Our right, Our future, Our legacy IS WRONG. It is selfish.

    I guess it is so, when they leave us all in the hole and walk off doing very well for themselves, then they were not lying.

    If it was for Bermuda, then it would have read Your right, Your future, Your legacy.

    PLP is all about me myself and I ….not the people of Bermuda….they just proved it once again.

    • I am not a plp supporter but you are full of bovine — the topic is “cultural and economic empowerment, at both local and regional levels”

      If the speaker & his speech are worth their salt then this is a $125 well spent and furthermore, If you are nickel & dime thinkers than a speech on economic empowerment such as the one to be given as per above definitely won’t be in your thought processes to comprehend

  9. We Are Not Amused! says:

    Regular tickets are $125, and patron tickets are $250

    and how many of the grass root party faithful have the money to throw on a ticket after the plp’s 14 year’s tour of Bermuda leaving the Island and it’s people broke!

    • Ringmaster says:

      Grassroots? That’s why the tickets are $125 each with patrons at $250. Wouldn’t want grass roots people buying tickets and arriving in inappropriate dress, spoiling the ritz and glitter for the elite. It’s just like the old USSR. Grassroots are only useful for their votes as and when needed.

      More appropriate would be a street party with the proceeds to help the less fortunate, but that would never happen.

    • Strike fund says:

      BIU dues have gone up by $104 for the year as well.

      Many members might not be able to afford it but I bet the executive members will be there to “represent” them.

  10. Ex PLP voter says:

    The PLP want to charge the workers $250′a plate. How can a labor party be so inconsiderate? They must not want the working class to attend.

  11. Need Peace says:

    Its the 47th ANNUAL Banquet! Not the 1st!!! All of your negative comments are obviously a moot point! Get over yourselves!

  12. watching says:

    The PLP has had a banquet for 47 years. LONG before they were the government. LONG before the days of high salaries and big cars.
    Those of you that don’t want to attend, that’s fine. Those that do want to attend will attend and will have a good time. We will celebrate and have fun!

  13. How come says:

    $250 a plate? That counts me out!

  14. bluebird says:

    Most of the PLP/BIU can afford this as they “ARE” on the Government Payroll.
    Do pray tell me how many have there own Business that pays TAXES to support this HUGE GOVERMENT at $1.1Billion dollars per year,which we cannot produce ourselves.
    All of them OBA people work in Private Enterprize that produces the TAX for the 8,000 on Government payroll.
