PLP Congratulates Bermuda’s Football Team

March 26, 2015

The Progressive Labour Party congratulated the Bermuda National Football team on their performance in the first leg of the World Cup Qualifier against Bahamas in Bahamas, which saw them record a 5-0 victory.

“We commend the players, the coaching staff, training staff and the remainder of the team for this result and we anticipate a wonderful game on Sunday, March 29 at the National Sports Centre,” a spokesperson said. “We encourage everyone to join our team and show our national pride. Let’s fill the stadium on Sunday!

Party Leader Marc Bean adds, “I was proud and honoured to attend this first leg in Bahamas and to witness Bermuda’s solid victory. I look forward to Sunday at the National Sports Centre!”

    If Progressive Labour Party and their Leader / followers are so concerned about the “issue” held at the Senate Building yesterday then why would he / they be more interested in attending a football game that we can / will also see here in Bermuda come this Sunday? Profiling and that’s all was / is.

    • PBanks says:

      Why not attack the PLP on the Senate issues on that particular topic’s page instead of a page congratulating the football team?

      • Raymond Ray says:

        @ PBank: I suggest you view that “particular page” before making any remarks…

        • PBanks says:

          I am aware of your comments on that page, so figured any repetition of your political views here was only going to take away from the accomplishments of the team.

    • Raymond Ray says:

      By the way, had Bermuda loss the match do anyone of you believe he would of taken the photo?
      Food for thought :-(

      • mixitup says:

        Had Marc Bean been at the Senate you would bashed him for that too. Not that your opinion matters in the least.

        • Raymond Ray says:

          We all know what opinions are like right? :-)
          Now go have a “Bermudaful Day”

          • Mockingjay says:

            You have to respect the man for his Loyalty to his fellow country men who he his also politically fighting for their Birth Rights instead of receiving a jersey and getting a photo opp and Legislating Laws that’s not gonna benefit them and their children.

          • Every family has one says:

            Please forgive Ray he didn’t take his oba meds today. Go walk your dogs and enjoy the day.

            • Raymond Ray says:

              @ Every family has one: Now be truthful, you’re jealous you can’t do what it is I do i.e. walking my 2 Labs. while holding my head high, (no pun meant)I will continue defending the One Bermuda Alliance Government.

              • mixitup says:

                Defend then right to their end.. which can’t come soon enough for very many.

      • Tired says:

        So lets see, he flew to Bahamas AFTER the team won to take a photo…

        Do you have ANY idea how stupid you sound?

      • Seriously says:

        I believe the correct word is LOST the game im just saying!!!!

  2. Future Alliance says:

    @ Raymond Ray,

    Please ensure that the 4,000+ people who love Bermuda and persuaded Senator Fahey to pass the Bill last night so that they can now buy properties at under BMD$153,000 ARV attend the next football match to support the their Team and their home Bermuda which they love dearly.

    Also ensure those 643 who have been granted Status come out and support Bermuda!!

    Go Bermuda!!!!

  3. Raymond Ray says:

    @ Future Alliance and anyone else: Read the Law and see for yourself who wrote the rule / Law and when. And yes I agree, please do come out and support Bermuda!

  4. Smh says:

    People always have something to say, he went to support. Why is it ALWAYS SO NEGATIVE?!?!

    • PBanks says:

      Because for whatever reason, whenever a politician does anything, even the most innocent or otherwise non-political thing, they’re going to get savaged by their political opponents’ respective cheerleaders.

    • hmmm says:

      He made it political by mentioning a political party.

      • PBanks says:

        What? Marc Bean said something on his own, while a PLP spokesperson said something on behalf of the PLP. Nobody was handing out leaflets or flyers.

        Even so, so what? It’s congratulatory messages.

        • Creamy says:

          And the Bean photo op gets attached to each one.

      • Varied says:

        Where did Marc Bean say, “The PLP…”?

    • Tom says:

      Must be a black vs white thing again. This Island is so full of race. That goes for both parties OBA & PLP.

    • Mockingjay says:

      Because that’s the Two Bermudas.
      With Mark Bean being a certified pilot I wonder how they would feel about him if they were in the same plane and something happened to the pilots.

  5. high road says:

    I do not support Mr. Bean or his party but I see nothing wrong with him going to Bahamas to watch his national team play.

    • hmmm says:

      Is the house in session? Did he pull a sick Day

  6. Tired says:

    Bernews, Can you ask if anyone from the OBA made the trip to support the team?

  7. C James says:

    If Marc has the money – then why shouldn’t he go there and cheers his team on? And why wouldn’t he have the money what with Paradise?

    It could be said that mathematically challenged folk sent him there.

  8. Dangel says:

    @Hmmm – your comments are not really necessary especially the first one! Everyone deserves to take a vacation when and where they choose.

    …. and yes The other here working for Bermuda.. I liked the photo ops (LifeLine & BFA) over the last couple of days.

  9. ImJustSayin says:

    if they lost 5-0 would they have done the same?

    • Varied says:

      The message would have been different but Id have expected both Bean and Dunkley to have come out with messages of support for the team.

  10. Rasta says:

    Just a photo op.
    I’m going have some herb tea, my asthma acting up. Hold on, is it legal?
