    I certainly hope that Ms.Thomas will let Bermuda know were all the money has gone.

    Mrs. Jacob Matthews has failed at that up until now.

      @ Bill,
      The ‘missing money narrative’ is factually incorrect!!

      There is no missing money. Many government entities are waiting for the Office of the Auditor General to complete audits that are either underway or at the Auditor’s Office waiting to be audited. the backlog in audited statements predates the OBA and the former PLP administrations.

      If money was actually missing, you can rest assured that all parties would be aggressively pursuing the theft.

      • Forethebest says:

        The money may not be missing, but perhaps has been inappropriately spent and is no longer available to be applied where it is needed.

  2. Mrs. Heather Jacobs has done a fabulous job over the years. Her fortitude, her frankness, her honesty, her approach ….THE BEST. Well done, Heather. Ms. Thomas will continue in that similar vein and continue to do this petite country justice.
    Once again, well done Mrs. Heather Jacobs!!!!

    And if there really were missing monies e.g. theft, why is the OBA being so silent about it? The longer they delay pursuing any necessary action suggests complicity. Trust, if there was theft, heads would have rolled a long time ago. So let’s cut out this missing money nonsense that OBA supporters like to stoke.

    • Rhonnie aka BlueFamiliar says:

      Just a random thought.

      Are you certain that action has been delayed? Perhaps it’s underway? As a general rule, you don’t tell the suspects what’s going on, so putting such things openly in the public domain wouldn’t be particularly wise.

      And no, the money isn’t missing. Pretty much everyone knows where it’s gone. Not specifically. But in general. We all know where it went.

    It is not missing money it is just a $2BILLION DOLLAR DEBT which has been left to the children and grand children of Bermuda by the PLP/BIU.
    How nice of the PLP/BIU to think of all the children and grand children of Bermuda,because it was such fun spending other peoples money while it lasted.And now we cannot pay it back because our economy has also been damaged with the attitude of the previous administration.
    And only $500,000.00 per day interest.

    Lets hope Heather doesn’t get thrown in jail by the PLP if she says something they don’t like. This could happen but only if Bermuda is collectively stupid enough to vote those liars back in n 2017.
