    I understand why you attended the meeting with CCC and Aeco but why wouldn’t you send some some of the members of the Bermuda Casino Gaming Commission. When it comes to anything to do with the International Casino Conference you and the Permanent Secretary are totally clueless Fahyyyyy.

    • Rockfish #1 and#2 says:

      What with the latest revelations about the Head of Civil service and other senior civil servants, seems they are clueless about job related matters….period.

  2. Lady Bug says:

    How last minute was his booking to Toronto?! That flight price is ridiculous!!! His flight to Toronto cost more than his flight to the U.K.??

    Something doesn’t seem right here…

    • Kathy says:

      I am sure he flew first class on BA. I guess BA gives concessions to Government ministers for monopoly privileges to and from Europe!

  3. Watching says:

    Ask them the question then. They’re good enough to publish the figures, only for you to effectively call them liars.

    Think back a couple of years, when did the previous lot ever release costs?

  4. Tomas says:

    Meals and accommodation in U.K. was a bargain for 8 nights. Did he stay at Airbnb or did BTA gang pickup some of his exoenses? Air to TO and 2 nights accommodation is very high especially with 30% bargain with Canadian dollar.

    At my last job i had to work a month for the same as , i guess we pay for what we vote for as the food bill should not come out of our pockets after all our politicians are paid handsomely.

    Bermudians will whine about anything. A few years ago one guy had an annual bill of $300,000. In one trip he spent $15,000 in limos. And the opposition of the day had to force the issue to find out what gad been spent.
    And now you whine if the air fare looks too low.

  7. JUNK YARD DOG says:

    We pay taxes for the privilege of whining.

    Whining is how we get things done, as you can see our winding roads being are being re surfaces.

    Which committee puts the playground next to the dump ?
