    Well done OBA.

  5. Lets see what you can do OBA? says:

    Whites voted on race………and black swing voters, voted for their wallets to be full again. People needed jobs. You can have all the heart you want PLP, but people need to eat and the country needed a change. If the OBA can’t keep their promises…………this will happen to them in 4 – 8 years.

    • Who done it says:

      What? Whites voted against being marginalized by the racist PLP tactics and their wallets.. Maybe the PLP will stop this garbage and start to be inclusive and not divisive

    To all the negative people that are still stuck on race being their biggest gripe, I say to look in your own families at your racial make up. I’m sure there are some white and other ancestors in your family, so leave race out of it. The people of this country have exercised their right to vote and select who they want to change the path that this country is on. For the record I am of mixed heritage and proud to be Bermudian.

    Well said maybe…well said. We are ALL on this Island together regardless of who leads…sink or swim we do it as a Country. I too am Proud to be Bermudian and proud to call you my friend.
