  1. Definitely Two Bermuda’s.

    Have you ever seen The U.B.P / O.B.A Sponsor a majority Black event to the tune of Millions of tax payers dollars, NO.

    Have you ever seen The P.L.P Sponsor a majority White event to the tune of Millions of tax payers dollars. NO.

    This is utter nonsense, when we can’t even fund our Education, and give better benefits for our Seniors, and all we keep hearing is what the P.L.P done to cripple this economy, when these Jack Rabbit’s who are the offspring’s of their political fathers in the U.B.P, are not spending money like drunken sailors.

    They are the darn drunken sailors. What a waste and then they got the nerve to admit that out of the $112 Million they gave, we will only get back a net of about $40 Million. Educated fools are by far worst then high school drop outs.

    • Cow polly says:

      Oh come on…. we don’t know how much we are going to get back and neither do you. All we know is that, unlike Beyoncé and the golf, we’ve already got a LOT of visitors who have deep pockets and the eyes of the world are on us for five weeks!!!!!

      Everything is black or white with you.

      Try thinking differently for once.

    • Sickofantz says:

      There are two Bermudas there are people who don’t see anything good and are only trying to score political points and then there are people who just want the island to succeed for ALL it’s people

    • 2025 plan says:

      Are you saying the PLP left us with money?
      At least you got your roads paved:))

    • Zevon says:

      I saw the PLP spend $25m to returf a golf course plus all other event expenses, for an event that three golfers attended.
      So that’s a “majority white event” that cost millions of taxpayer dollars.
      Got any more questions?

  2. Barry Dodds says:

    Congratulations to the OBA government and other Bermudians involved in putting together this spectacle. Hopefully, the positive impact, internationally, will be with the island for many years to come. Well done Messrs Dunkley, Richards and Gibbons.

    Fireworks where not that great. Alright but the finally is normally better,, just saying

  4. Wentin says:

    What a fantastic day, and what an amazing place. I had no idea it would be that good, the village is world class.

    Please don’t say…I have no interest in sailing…neither did I but I loved it, or it is too expensive…$5 on the ferry, $10 to get in, half price for kids.

    You really have no excuse Bermuda. Everybody who went yesterday was buzzing.
