Jamaica’s Consul General to New York, Ms Trudy Deans made her first official visit to Bermuda and was welcomed by Acting Premier and Minister of Transport and Regulatory Affairs Walter Roban during a courtesy call on the Cabinet Office.

“Apart from her duties in the United States, Ms Deans is also responsible for the Honorary Jamaican Consulate in Bermuda and other Consulates in eastern states of North America,” the Government said.

“This is the first official visit of a Jamaican Consul General in 15 years and was an opportunity to meet Bermuda’s new Government, as well as visit with the island’s Jamaican community leaders.

“Informal talks covered the Caribbean Community [CARICOM], the group of twenty countries of 16 million people with fifteen Member States and five Associate Members including Bermuda.”

Acting Premier Roban said, “The Jamaican Government is interested in trade and investment opportunities and during our short visit we were able to review the relationship between our two countries. We also discussed issues of the environment, energy and cultural protection and preservation.”

    Can she give us some ideas on how to run a fleet of busses and an entire country for that matter?

    • Time Shall Tell says:

      You must be of the 32%. Don’t worry, it’ll all be OK.

    • I and I says:

      Can you Wahoo?

      • Wahoo juice says:

        Yes, return the OBA.

          • Anbu says:

            Good for you oj. U can count. Thats abt it im assuming.

          • Anbu says:

            And ur still at the bottom

            • Even though we are at the bottom, we’ve done pretty darn good so far.
              Let me start a 400 lap race and let you start on my 399th lap and see you try to catch me up before you finish your 400 laps.
              No honour in gloating in biased conditions to disadvantage a group so you can benefit.
              Quite cowardly I would say.

                Cowardly? Yes, you are… but, you’d say “24-12″…because you’re nothing but a filthy hypocrite.

                You’re a joke, OJ

        • Sheila says:

          I agree

        • PBanks says:

          After the shenanigans with public transport during the last administration, you have confidence that the OBA would have sorted it out? Come on now.

          • Jus' Wonderin' says:

            What shenanigans?

            • PBanks says:

              Have you even tried to catch a bus or ferry? The issues with vehicles out of services didn’t start in July 2017. Or ticket offices closing early.

          • Anbu says:

            Well its been a year and the plp still havent. Whats your point?

            • PBanks says:

              Um, that Wahoo suggests the OBA would have fixed things when during their administration there was zero improvement.

              And yes, things were bad during the last PLP administration too with regard to public transport.

              Nobody’s coming out with flying colours.

    We can manage to order limos no problem…maybe we could ask her how we should go about picking up trash?

  3. Stevie says:

    Where the hell is Burt? Wasting taxpayers money again running off to a conference that does Bermuda any good?

  4. Up D Hill says:

    Yawn!! I’m sorry who is she?

    Interesting article in the current edition of Private Eye about Montego Bay. It has been militarized and run by the army since January of this year to try and combat a murder rate four times that of Chicago, America’s most dangerous city. There were 335 recorded murders in Montego Bay last year, plus correspondingly high figures for assaults, muggings, etc. Of course their resorts are all inclusive – they have to be. Perhaps a bit of trade and investment as discussed will help, I sure hope so. Now let me get back to that Sandals web page…
