    Service? What service? Politicians continue to think they are actually important to the betterment of Bermuda. We pay millions a year to these people and they can’t manage to cut the grass. Or trim the hedges. Or kills the weeds. Basic sh*t. Why can’t they do it? There are 36 of them…they can’t all be simpletons…
