“On Sunday, November 11, Remembrance Day, our celebrations will pause to reflect and remember those that lost their lives in war. Our Leader, the Hon. E. David Burt, our Cabinet, and other MPs will participate in the Remembrance Day Parade and laying of wreaths at the Cenotaph.

“Monday, November 12, will be dedicated to Community Service, and members of the party will be called to assist in community service.

    PLP don’t even bother to pretend anymore about being an inclusive organization. About time they were true to themselves and make it known they have ways wheen and always will be for only one demographic of this diverse island.

    Celebrating 20 years? Well remember this everyone – the plp has been in power for 15 of the last 20 years – what we see now is all their making

    Grocery prices going up people struggling but a $150 gala… Ok.

    These are rubbing our faces in it! Holding a celebration when our seniors can’t afford to eat or buy prescription drugs as OTC drugs are not covered by insurance! You should be ashamed of yourselves!

  5. Ringmaster says:

    Not much Labour anymore, but plenty of Party. Shame grass root Bermudians are priced out, let alone the unemployed, but they’re only needed at election time.
