The Government said, “The Premier will give an overview of his first year in office, defining the successes and what the Government has put in place to build a better and fairer Bermuda.”

Tomorrow will mark the one year anniversary of Premier David Burt taking office, as on July 19, 2017, he was officially sworn-in, becoming Bermuda’s youngest ever Premier.

That followed after the PLP’s victory at the polls in the General Election on July 18, 2017, which saw the PLP win 24 seats to the OBA’s 12; claiming 20,059 total votes [58.89%] to the OBA’s 13,832 votes [40.61%].

    Mr Premier you are a very sweet relief to this country. Thank you for all you are doing. Go PLP!!

    • Ringmaster says:

      You’re right. Premier Burt is working hard to bring in high paying expats to run Fintech. No jobs for Bermudians except for chicken farmers and active shooters. Go PLP.

      Snore fest! Zzzzzzzzz

      • So relieved not to be hearing or seeing SpongeBob and Fahy anymore.
        SpongeBob retired to be an author and Fahy writing meaningless editorials after his was booed from de Immigration meeting.

      • Sandz Not Growin' says:

        Can someone please escort this nut job to the outdoors and show his dank eyes light? For his only joy in life is from conducting his daily dose of sickening verbiage on EVERY story related to the PLP.
        For someone who claims such disdain for people he is WORST THAN A STALKER. His obsession with them worries me of his mental stability. Personally I picture a ragged old soulless being in his underwear, drinking scotch and running from device to device getting his rocks off posting in hopes of soiling them.

        Pathetic Beast!!!

      • Sandz Not Growin says:

        Sandi, are you typing in your sleep? OBSESSED! Lmao

    • Secret says:

      Party over country. Sad.

      • Victoria says:

        Leave dreamer! No one is forcing you all to stay! WHAT you can’t?? Then find a damn hobby other then COMPLAINING!!!!!

    • Wahoo says:

      Stop kissing his a$$ you are a minion and might get a crumb only if you are lucky.

      • Turbit says:

        And you are a sad, whining, kid who needs a bottle or change of nappy.

      • Shark says:

        Stop trolling PLP and you wouldn’t have to be such an A$$ Wahoo!!!

    • shrew says:

      one hotel pulling out because of PLP lack of economic understanding; two new taxes and rights taken away from a minorty group of BERMUDIANS. you’re right about one thing – Go PLP – go far far away.

      • Tru says:

        One hotel pulling out because they want to retire and spend that money more like it. Amazing how you all listen and believe in rumors and gossip rather than finding the truth.
        We are staying love however if you want to leave you are welcome to. Go live somewhere where the ruling party is perfect and you get all you needs met. Otherwise look at ways you can work with this government to ensure they do what is best for the country. All of you grieving about broken promises do know you are fools right! Because that’s the only comfort you have on a promise lol

  2. Archie says:

    Yawn – explaining away the broken promises on health care, increased taxes, rise in the cost of living, lack of new jobs, racial slurs, drive for independence …. yeah right

    • And de promises OBA broke ……………

      • sandgrownan says:

        Will he wear a PLP pin on his jacket or a Bermuda pin?

        • Sandz Not Growin' says:

          You are like an untreated rash sandi. Just leave! That way you will not have to OBSESS over them.

        • Sandz Not Growin' says:

          Sandi, we know secretly you wish you were apart of OUR Winning TEAM hahahahaha

    • Bunkers says:

      Why do you follow them???? You are nuts mate. Amazes me when one insinuates boredom when they had a choice! No right minded being does that. Get help mate! Get HELP!!!

  3. Dae says:

    American style state of the union address can’t get any funnier , for who’s benefit is this ?does the government not think we think they are doing anything positive ? why is Bermuda following the political style of a rich rac..t??

  4. facts of the rock says:

    More propaganda by the plp for the gullible green t shirt lovers!

  5. Joe Bloggs says:

    Time to rally the troops

    • Joe's Real Blogg says:

      How the hell did we lose? The consultants promised if we threw the last few candidates in it would secure our numbers. Another fool born everyday!

  6. Stevie says:

    Just more words without substance what they have achieved so far. Done nothing.

    • Stevie's Mum says:

      A bit like what you write here on a continuous basis eh Stevie boy.

  7. aceboy says:

    Election promises kept? We promised we would look at stuff and we did.

    We have added more taxes.

    We bought ourselves cars.

    Lots of stuff about Fintech! No jobs YET!

    • Real Aceboi says:

      I sorry you thought your jobs would be handed to you on your lap as you wait for them. Get off your backside and create work for yourself and be one less who is waiting for a hand out. Take 3 part time jobs if you have to but stop expecting your job to be given to you.

  8. trump deporter says:

    Are we not in debt anymore?? We never hear anything about it.. Maybe those bitcoins have paid off.

  9. Ok says:

    Lmfao what has he really done besides sign MOU’s…….nothing!

    • Yuh says:

      Another dreamer who has a selected memory. Search, read go on their website and see what they have done INSTEAD of following the leader in post. SMDH at the ignorance being spread on here.

  10. I am thoroughly PLEASED with Premier Burt’s cleverness, brightness, foresightedness, knowledge, education and outstanding business sense.
    He is an outstanding humanitarian and a PEOPLE-PERSON!!
    All of these attributes were severely lacking with the OTHER premier.
    The other premier lacked the smarts and education!!

    • sandgrownan says:

      He’s an empty suit who allowed ridicule and disdain to be heaped on Bermuda. Some achievement.

      • Smith says:

        I’m sorry what was the vote 25 to 11 lol. We voted you fools out. see you in 25 years obaUBPER LOL

        • sandgrownan says:

          As posted above, a credulous voting public is all that is demonstrated.

        • Sandz Not Growin says:

          Yeah, this is what has them so angry. You noticed it’s the same nut jobs daily trying to get votes for their RAGING OBSESSIVE BEHAVIORS

      • Sandz Not Growin' says:

        You are a JEALOUS SHELL of a HUMAN sandi and not even 80% of Black Rum could make you a HAPPY drunk!

      • Thanks Premier says:

        Shallow OBA TROLLS who think we will stoop to their levels but WE are VICTORIOUS & COMMITTED

    • Reuben says:

      “He is an outstanding humanitarian and a PEOPLE-PERSON!!”

      whose government pushed through legislation basically turned people into second class citizens.

    • aceboy says:

      You can so easily be fooled.

      Who is the OTHER premier you refer to?

      Lacking smarts and education? No idea who that could be. It couldn’t be a successful well educated business man, so who would it be?

  11. Not The Premier says:

    Leaked Speech:

    My Fellow Bermudians,

    It is my pleasure to address the Nation tonight.

    Before I say any more, I want to humbly Thank God for my private education as he knows how hard this job is even with it.

    Now that’s done with, I need to mention that new wall down at Somerset Cricket Club. Whatever you do, don’t sit on it. Burch was telling me about the folks that built it and they’re all a bit suspect. Also I hope those same folks have the good taste to paint it by the time HE gets down there to present the trophy. In the end I’m pretty pleased he’s agreed to do it after all the Col’s carry on. Don’t know what Burch was up to wanting to pull me away from the tents for that. I’d nearly think he wants to present it himself. Enough said other than that those blue guys from the East better try a bit harder this year.

    Now, that woman in the House across from me has been making a lot of noise about this airport scheme she and her cronies cooked up. It makes me wonder what she’s really covering up. But imho Richards is the one we have to watch. He’s been too quiet by half. Dunkley, love it when he opens his mouth – easily worth 50 votes our way, every time…

    to be continued.
