    As the Lady said at the recent SAGE hearing, this wall collapse is the PLP’s fault and we need to find a way of communicating this accident to the Isanders in a simple clear way that they will understand.

    Working??must be break time, i see four up top, standing around doing nothing except staring at the two below also doing nothing??lets hope no more rain comes in the mean time as all the water will go back down there , with no drain system now in place..

      P.S hope they put this job out to tender to a company other than Government!!so it can be done fast and on a budget..

        Paha! Did you see the wall on east broadway behind the old crow lane bakery leaving town? I’m the equivalent of a skilled laborer and could have done it faster and it was neither W&E or CoH.

    @ Shaka Zulu, shut the hell up. W&E has been doing a amazing job down at the scene. I myself has been at the scene helping out at my friends grandparents house. It’s a lot of hard work that needs to be down there. If you want to complain, you should come by and give a helping hand.

    God Bless Bermuda

  7. RayMan says:

    @ Shaka Zulu. First of all I don’t work for W&E. If you couldn’t read I said I was on scene to give my friends grandparents a helping hand to sort the house out clearing up all the rubbish and Beer bottles that locals like just throwing in the tress instead of a damn trash can. So get your damn facts staright first before you go on. Thanks.
