    If elected would he relinquish his BPSU role?

  2. Congrats says:

    Ottiwell Simmons did not relinquish anything when he was President of the BiU and neither did Derek Burgess. Those are the facts. Let’s use Jason’s knowledge to resolve the immigration issues and also get more businesses here. As simple as that.

    • Entre Manure says:

      I agree that he shouldn’t have to resign his current job although one might argue how he can give 100% to both jobs that he is getting paid to work 100% for.

      But I wonder what knowledge does he have that will help resolve the immigration issues?

      I know very little about him outside of the peoples campaign so I am not judging. Im just wondering?

    • Joe Bloggs says:

      Jason Hayward and his socialist policies will not bring new business to Bermuda. Sorry.

  3. Things a Gwan says:

    Congrats on being selected for a post despite the fact that the majority selected someone else. Can you imagine if that happened to one of your union members? You would down tools and be marching But we get it. Do as I say not as I do. Burt is just returning the favour and a paycheck for all your work during the peoples campaign brainwashing years.

  4. Women!!! says:

    From the pictures on PLP facebook page, there are all men (MPs and Senators)! Where are the women?

    • sandgrownan says:

      The PLP is a misogynist conservative organisation. That’s why.

  5. Maddog says:

    Grow up what do you think.

  6. Joe Bloggs says:

    I live in Pembroke Central. Walton got elected because he was Walton. I do not assume this is a PLP safe seat.

  7. Rocky5 says:

    Very interesting how Premier Burt is riding roughshod over PLP Branch committees. He’s quickly losing confidence of grassroots of PLP who recognize that all he wants is power for himself and his cronies.

    • Joe Bloggs says:

      But as we saw 15 years ago, the PLP Central Committee will deceive the people if it keeps them in power

  8. Let's Keep It Real says:

    Once again the majority’s voices have not been heard. He is not the constituents choice, Six five percent of them voted against him being the candidate. And since their voices were not heard or simply ignored than that same 65% should not vote for him or not vote at all. Put priority over party! This is setting a bad precedent. Knowing his mentality he will in the not to distant future via for the Deputy Premier’s position. Remember what he done when he was initially elected as BPSU President. Something that A. Thomas nor C. Grant his predecessors done. Which was to create that position into a full time salaried job. So the question is! Is he for the people or for himself! Quite sure his spiritual mentor is ecstatic.

  9. Oh,I see now says:

    I see Burt is putting his Ernie in place despite what the party thinks it appears to be entities going on in green country.

    Why do we like to air our dirty laundry in the public,just cannot learn from the other side,so so sad.

  11. Wasted Vote says:

    A vote for Hayward is a vote for WRONG, a lot like how voting for an independent is a Vote for the OBA

  12. Toadinthehole says:

    Not sure about this, he is very establishment

  13. Did de ubp/ Oligarchy/ members relinquish their affiliations?
