  1. Who is Craig Mayor? says:

    Who exactly is Craig Mayor and why was he to invited present his paper:

    “Bermuda Airport Development — Exigent Economic Risks and Inadequate Due Diligence”

    I would love to see the PAC have a balanced discussion by inviting someone presenting a paper or discussion on why the redevelopment of the asirport is important to Bermuda. This would provide service to country.

    At the face of this–it sounds like a pre-fabricated one sided show to throw mud at the project.

    Thankfully it was postponed and hopefully the rescheduled meeting will be more balanced–

    If not–it just looks like tit for tat in response to the Commission of Inquiry!!

    • Commission of inquiry for a few years???????
      U.B.P. and de Oligarchy have been doing this dumb S!@# for ages.
      LMFAO

        If they were doing it for years why didn’t we go bankrupt sooner ?
        And don’t say they were better at hiding it .
        The only qualified audits started coming in after your party got in .
        LMFAO

      I asked the same question yesterday with no answer.

      Will the real Craig Mayor please stand up?

      • Lois Frederick says:

        Google will assist you at least a little bit.

    • NCM says:

      Also wondering who is Craig Mayor? No doubt he is signing the Opposition’s tune otherwise Burt wouldn’t have invited him… More mud slinging indeed. Look over here – ignore the damning evidence coming out of the Commission of Inquiry.

    • Reality Check says:

      Who is Craig Mayor,

      You comment: “I would love to see the PAC have a balanced discussion by inviting someone presenting a paper or discussion on why the redevelopment of the asirport is important to Bermuda.”

      Surely, Minister Richards has been “presenting a paper” and discussing for almost two years now. Surely that satisfies your requirement.

      That the Minister has not convinced a healthy majority of the electorate must have something to do with the quality, concept, and timing of the whole Airport development issue.

      And in a democracy, isn’t a taxpayer entitled to voice his opinion, ask questions of his Parliamentary representatives, and challenge the worth and value of any action taken by the government that he pays for and whose debt he gets burdened with?

    • Onion says:

      A CPA with 30+ years in business who has spent 6+ months working through the details to expose the inefficiencies of the Airport redevelopment. There is no political agenda behind the paper. From what I understand they are doing it to ensure Bermuda and its people are not placed in a difficult position in the years ahead.
