    Since there’s an international element to this festival, let’s hope the Musician Union don’t complain about it.

    Maybe if you let them try the dresses on for equal time, they’ll be OK with it.

    I think they wanted to remove the word ‘city’ from it so it don’t make them sound like they’re associated with the Corportion of Hamilon/City of Hamilton. Lol

    The COH is so ego filled they seem to think they are running Bermuda. Thank goodness they aren’t and will be voted out in the next election now that the tax payers will have their vote restored.
