    So these graphs clearly confirm the PLP’s policies of driving away our local (Bermudian and non-Bermudian) workforce and related investor class have resulted in fewer tax dollars to run the Government, pay bills and support Bermudians.

    Hopefully they will now agree (and stop complaining that) our economy works better with more employed people contributing to the Government’s bottom line and refrain from the erroneous and xenophobic sound bites we’ve been subjected to for the last 14 months about how foreigners are taking jobs from Bermudians.

    The PLP consistently deny the double edged benefit sword of foreign investment, yet were directly responsible (and if they want to take credit) for the related tax revenues necessary to support the Civil Service these graphs should extinguish any further complaints and stop them from trying to divide us along racial and socio-economic lines for political gain.

      Don’t you know, the ONLY reason things went bad was because of the worldwide economy? That’s the sole reason. Nothing else. No other reason. At all. Ever. At all.
