    MichaeL Lee Chin was there. That is great. He is a remarkable man. What did he say to the VIP guests? Did he tell them that their elected officials are running our country the way way he would run a business?

    Very nice pictures by the way. Zane I hope you got a mini bus ride home.

    • Question? says:

      Stop worrying about the PLP/BIU and tell us why the oba/UBP doesn’t allow the media to take pictures at any of their events?

      Why hide who your supporters really are from the Bermuda voters!!! You claim the party is more diverse and not the awful UBP party.

      Lets be honest when the UBP was in power jobs and money was everywhere, so why change the name to an experiment like the oba 12?

      • wahoo juice says:

        I cannot stop worrying about the plp/biu because they are making a mess of everything again. I do not trust a government where ministers try to take control of an industry (gaming) and refuse to answer questions based on a self imposed rule not to talk to media. I don’t trust a union that does not tell its members what is being done with the money they pay to be members. It is a secretive alliance that deflects from from real issues kind of like your comment.

        You would need to direct any questions regarding oba/ubp to them I am not a member only a voter.

        • RIP oba/UBP says:

          “….NOT A MEMBER ONLY A VOTER” LOLOLOLOLOL.

          AS A VOTER YOU SHOULD KNOW YOUR PARTY YOU IDIOT. MY WHOLE FAMILY WAS OBA/UBP UNTIL WE WOKE UP AND SAW WHY YOU NEEDED US SURROGATES TO HELP YOU WIN. GOOD LUCK FINDING ANYMORE.

          A NEW PARTY WILL ONE DAY BEAT THE PLP BUT IT’S NOT THIS PARTY…. WHO CHANGE THEIR NAME OVER NIGHT TO TRY AND WIN VOTES. PURE TRICKERY AT IT’S BEST!!!

          • wahoo juice says:

            So you think PLP are doing a good job? You have never been UBP or OBA supporter if you had you would not use divisive wording like “surrogate” just proves you are all about division and not vision.

      • nerema says:

        maybe because they’re not public? Anyone can have a private party anytime they like. It’s only the PLP that makes it into a photo op.

      • Onion says:

        Because half the active UBP leaders are now in the PLP. The UBP split into the PLP and the OBA.

      • bee says:

        because only PLP members care about getting their photo taken at parties. give me a break.

      • Earth watch police says:

        Question that looks like a diverse group of Bermudians .

  2. Adrianne says:

  3. Zevon says:

    A party for billionaires

  4. truth hurts init says:

  5. Up D Hill says:

    Nothing to do but dress up (IF YOU CAN CALL IT THAT) ! Take a good look Bermuda, your going to get what you voted for!

    • Truth says:

      And in other news, we need to cut financial aid and we can’t afford to pay Seniors’ pensions.

  6. Can't believe it says:

    So many negative comments. Get use to it OBA supporters. The PLP is now the Government. You got a wup a**.

    • Rick says:

      They got beat so bad that only the weakest member is left to be leader. Just to think the other day you guys was Government. Mike still thinks he is leader and he told the press he was going to take a back seat. :)

    • Up D Hill says:

      We will see who will get a wup a** when you have to pay for this PLP lot!

  7. mixitup says:

    All of the haters are still on those sour grapes? If they are not in charge of everything then they go into panic mode….lol

    Maybe you all should join the party, maybe you will learn something.

    • Toodle-oo says:

      Nobody with half a brain needs to join to learn anything . They saw all they need to know between 1998 and 2012.

      Still waiting for you to tell us all about your bout with sour grapes between 2012 and 2017 . It was kinda obvious you know so you really ought not to be accusing others now.
