    please just pick one: Labour Day or Communist May Day and stick with it.

    What overwhelming support for our international workers! Its like Trump’s inauguration!

  3. spinspinspin says:

    It really speaks volumes about the PLP’s leadership style that they whipped their base into a frenzy over pathways to status, shut down the country, and got senior citizens pepper sprayed, but when it comes to an issue that really affects seniors, they only put in the effort to drum up a modicum of support. THIS is the real issue they should have got bodies out for, and this is the result? You get what you vote for Bermuda.

  4. LA says:

    33 people, good turnout.

  5. Rocky5 says:

    Looks like the OBA – very little support

  6. Me says:

    What government is rallying and demonstrating against itself what sort nonsense ?

  7. Realist says:

    Firstly, start with putting those with you on a health programme. Secondly, as the lead negotiator for workers Jason Hayward could have started with negoiating better medical co-payments for government workers! He’s very aware they current benefits haven’t been improved in many, many years! And most importantly get some equity so that the police are not continuing to drain the health care system with their 100% coverage for all health benefits. Grossly unfair!

  8. me says:

    Sometimes my island makes me cringe because the stuff we should be supporting together, we don not. We’d rather sit at home and complain like internet gangsters instead of doing the right thing. SMH
