December 21, 2017 | 21 Comments

The Minister of Economic Development and Tourism Jamahl Simmons and area MPs Renee Ming and Kim Swan visited with business owners in the Town of St George.

“The historic town is decked out with festive Christmas decorations, and the lively atmosphere is perfect for holidays cheer. With only a few days left for shopping St. George businesses are open and ready to assist during these final days leading up to Christmas,” the Ministry said.

“Joined by BEDC’s Ray Lambert, the group spoke with St. George’s Crown Creative Director, Jarae Thompson about his new St. George’s Community Newspaper, and Mark Soares, Bermuda Yacht Services, shared stories about the impact of visiting yachts to the St George business community.

“The group stopped in to meet with Kelly Thompson of Saltwater Jewelry and Kristen White of Long Story Short. Along the way, the group met up with the Corporation’s tour guide, Rev. Lorne Bean and visitors on a UNESCO Heritage Site Walking Tour. To wind up the visit they met with Mr Terry Robert at Paradise Gifts and enjoyed coffee with Juliette Hoerrmann of Temptations Café and finished at Paradise Gifts.”

    This is why we ‘need’ fulltime ministers. To give time for the photo ops.

  2. Photo opp says:

    what’s good for the goose is good for the gander..

    bottom line is that ALL politicans are guilty of the same publicity grabbing tactics.

    Have a blessed day.

  3. puzzled says:

    Love the last photo here.

    A photo op with a so called Government Minister standing in the forefront of the Deliverance on an island known as Ordinance.

    And a damn garbage bin awaiting a deposit.

    And empty town thanks to Ewart Brown.

  4. Unbelievable says:

    Oh bore.

    Remember when OBA Ministers did the exact same thing and everyone was up in arms about it? Same same but different? Nah.

    Why do we even have these politicians?

    • MERRY CHRISTMAS says:

      Also remember that the people did not like the oba<UBP. Did you forget the 24 PLP seat to 12 oba/UBP seat beating that ya party received in July :)

      The oba/UBP is finished and washed up. This is coming from a large family that always voted UBP and later OBA.

        -This is coming from a large family that always voted UBP and later OBA.-

        So who ya voting for now ? And don’t say it’s the PLP .

        You’re too funny

      • Mike says:

        Funny and by the looks at what happened a true story. The entire East side of the Island voted them out not just your family.

      • Unbelievable says:

        @MERRY CHRISTMAS……clearly you have missed the point and you clearly only have negativity to display.

        I’m sorry you voted PLP.

      • Zevon says:

        So you agree with them wasting their time and our money doing fluff things like this.

  5. Triangle Drifter says:

    Oh Boy, another photo op!! Don’t these people have real jobs to attend to somewhere?

  6. Tania Stafford says:

    Thank you Minister and representatives for drawing attention to the wonderful Christmas offerings in St. George’s. Come on down this weekend everyone!

    • Ringmaster says:

      Funny that 2 ministers were ex UBP, 1 an ex leader. Bermuda first or me first? Couldn’t make this up. Pathetic.

  7. facts of the rock says:

    and overpaid!

  8. Sorry Sir says:

    “oh, so this is the part of the island our party left to rot by taking away their cruise ships…”

    • Answer says:

      Actually this is the part of the island that kick the oba in the a$$.

      • Ringmaster says:

        Confused? Kim Swan ex leader of the UBP. Jamahl Simmons ex UBP/OBA/XXX party, anyone one who will take him. St George is a joke.

        • Rasta says:

          Tell us why your party oba=UBP continue to lose people of color? Please tell us, because these voters that you lose election after after election are the ones that always decide who wins the election. When you understand that you will understand why you always fail.

          Jah Bless,

    If you really care about East End you would find the pics pretty nauseating to say the least. Meanwhile back in town some pretty heavy news about our debt repayment….but who cares? Also noted that 2/3 of the attendees or delegates as they may want to be called are flipfloppas.

  10. pisspotical says:

    Comrade Leader of the Dictatorship the most highly almighty other than Kim Il Jung Jammy Simmons running neck and neck with your boss for photo ops. do i smell a revolution or coup

  11. Dready says:

    Nice shops, no customers, the govt chased them away.

  12. Sage says:

    Same ignorant Govt. that has opened the floodgates for W&E staff for overtime. Cutting trees on a weekend for probably triple time. We’ll be Third World before you can blink.
