    Who do the PLP think that they are fooling? The budget is all but ready to go to press. There is time for minor tweaking only.

    Why is it that although the Bermuda Gov has a ton of centrally located venues at their disposal with better parking like the Bermuda College, Cedarbridge / Ruth Seaton James, Berkeley to name a few, why do they having their meetings at alternative venues with less space, less parking and I’m guessing at a cost?

  3. Curious says:

    Why would any government ask the public to discuss a proposed budget? People elect a government to do the very best for the population. This is nothing more than the usual smoke screen and lip service that means nothing.
