    Commission, what is wrong with you? Don’t you understand your job? Your job is to find dirt on the PLP and ignore potential misdeeds of the present Govt.

    Investigate the non-tendered contracts awarded by the PLP….but ignore the biggest non-tendered contract, is this country’s history, awarded by this Govt.

    This situation is a joke.

    I highly recomend this commission investigate the airport project and put the unanswered questions to bed once and for all. I hope that once the report comes back it shows that this government has undertaken a project of this magnitude that is honest and the best thing for for Bermuda. However, I’m not sure that will ever help silence the opposition, but let’s hope just the same.
