    Will the PLP come up with an alternative plan?

    • NCM says:

      They have. Borrow a hundred million or so to repair the existing terminal and hope it might last another ten years – then borrow hundreds of millions more and build a new terminal. Borrow, spend, borrow, spend and make taxpayers pay for it. Bob calls it the ‘expensive Band-Aid approach’.

      And if that plan were to go ahead – Bermuda would be broke, likely default on the billions of dollars we owe and we will all be left fighting over bananas and bibblers.

      • Ringmaster says:

        You’re missing the point. As David V. Burch says, keep the existing airport for 10 years and create 1,000 jawbs for de boys to keep fixing it. Not sure how they are paid as there is no money, but who cares.

  2. Smiths says:

    nice – stack the panel with nah-sayers so no one on the panel can defend the miss-information that’s going to be spread.

    Sounds more like a call-to-arms to march the house on Friday.

    • Like how the deck is stacked with this lynchmob kangaroo court fiasco!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • mark says:

        LoL…what are you talking about?

      • Noncents says:

        @Onion Juice

        when they concede to bending rules as retribution- it can hardly be called a fiasco

        • Toleratate says:

          It’s the Robin Hood scenario… just rewritten “steal from everybody and give to friends and family”…

  3. Four says:

    Yes there 500 million dollar airport less the over runs.

  4. Finance Minister says:

    Boy! I’m just tired of all of this! Politics! I need work! Start the dam airport!

  5. smh says:

    #1 on tomorrow’s agenda. What time should we all be making on the hill Friday morning?

    #2 Will there be coffee?
    #3 When are the gombey’s playing?

    • Toleratate says:

      ya, called that yesterday when I read it. What else do you think will come out of a meeting made up of “Opposition Leader David Burt, Larry Burchall and BIU President Chris Furbert, with Rev. Nicholas Tweed to serve as the moderator”….. gonna be a long Friday….waiting to see how they spin it to get a Union work stoppage needed to lead the march on the Hill…. how does Furbert and Tweed sell that one….or does Burt continue to brand it as selling our Airport to a Canadian firm….

  6. Fair-is-Fair says:

    All the Pro-Airport Build supporters should attend this meeting and shout down the speakers so they do not have a chance to get their message out – Isn’t that what happened before when the Government tried to get their message out thru a public meeting? Fair-is-Fair

    • Airbus A 380 says:

      OH SO TRUE. But then some of us are cultured and brought up to respect and listen or be heard

    • I hope they do, that would be interesting.

      • jt says:

        Perhaps those who support will recognize the right to hold such a meeting a will be respectful of those who choose to attend?

  7. Airbus A 380 says:

    well there is a well rounded, un biased, elequant.,fair non political, pro one sided Bermuda highly un motivated ( our way is the only way and we wont listen to reason )lost in the woods panel. I am sure us with the other side of the coin view would be most welcome to attend. I am sure all are welcome ONLY IF THEY SUPPORT THE PANEL. What could Mr UNION FuRBERT contribute in a logical well spoken point to this conversation. GOD HELP US ALL

  8. nok says:

    Fair-is fair they should try it.

  9. CPM says:

    Why are we allowing a foreigner on a work permit [Tweed] to interfere in our affairs?

  10. John says:

    The NO NO NO NO NO NO crowd keeping Bermuda unprogressive and standing weak for Bermudians

  11. this project will employ many bermudians… plp projects bankrupted bermuda…

  12. wahoo says:

    Why do they refer to themselves as the people’s campaign?

  13. mark says:

    This nonsense isn’t going to stop until we get out there in greater numbers than them. The problem is that the majority who don’t feel like them, have real jobs to attend and cannot take the time for this nonsense. But there will be a breaking point, I promise you that. I for one am tired of a tiny minority holding our country hostage.

  14. eegrunt says:

    PlPeoples campaign is whack. take a break you sheep. baaaaa

  15. eegrunt says:

    Perhaps all the Pro Airport supporters (ie. everyone other than the PLPeoples campaign) should show up at the meeting chanting ‘YES! YES! YES!’ whenever someone tries to speak. betcha chaos would ensue.
