    Damn OBA! Who they think they are creating jobs via the airport development.

    We need to march and shut down Parliament over this nonsense!

    Who’s with me!

    • Ides of March? says:

      Good news folks. they announced that the People’s Champagne is still going and restructured.

      We eagerly awaiting a announcement from Bro Chris and Tweed regarding a March.

      Bro Chris?? Where you too?

    Look at this. Just as predicted, Canadians are taking over the airport. They are even training Bermudians at their expense to do specialised jobs.

    All those people who paraded around the HOA & blocked access must really be feeling vindicated now.

    And look at the BHC a PLP created venture cutting jobs and good old Brown trying to deflect.

  4. smh says:

    Thanks OBA. Unfortunately the PLP will take full credit for creating these jobs when the time comes

    • Triangle Drifter says:

      It will be just like when the then new arrivals area opened in 1998 shortly after the PLP gained power. They were all there strutting around like they were responsible for it. Not a mention, not a sole UBP member to be seen.

    ^^As disingenuous as they get^^

    I recall the foundation of the protest being the non tendering, the handing over of the Airport, and the 1 Billion in lost revenue. I did hear under-tones of whether AECON will be committed to hiring Bermudians but there was always the expectation that Jobs will be created, so If you are going to paint a picture, don’t leave 90% of the portrait undone.

    • Double S says:

      Where were the protests then regarding the tendered Port Royal contract, or Global Hue, or the numerous other examples or the giving away of $900mn over 30 years in relation to the hospital wing development?

      In the end the protests were simply who was enacting the initiative. Not the initiative itself.
