    Oh – so we do have a constitution! Does the OBA and the Bermuda government know we have a constitution? The government is antecedent to the Bermuda Constitution Order 1968. Why the sudden retirement? Given the inquiry into financial misdoings it would be good to have her intimate knowledge of the matters available.

    Although I respect her decision and I’m sure she deserves it, can we please have a replacement that’s younger so we can have some sort of consistency?

      You should be asking for someone with Heather’s experience – younger is a no no
