    Any chance we can get concrete answers as to what exactly will be done about the massive $$million over run on the port royal project this time, or will this just be another waste of time by the politicians that we pay?????

    • @ Kangoocar: According to da fella, “that’s the multi million dollars question” everyone needs answered :-(

  2. Well let us,(if you also believe there’s power in prayers) pray for a just conclusion to the unanswered questions reference to the unaccounted for millions of Bermudian Taxpayers dollars :-(

  3. Balanced Facts says:

    But the PLP Greenies are making noise about some rubble from a wall and Financial Instructions not being followed and PORT ROYAL has millions of dollars in over runs without proper financial instructions…and not a word of apology or valid explanation!

    No comments?

    How odd.

    Funny how these meetings have such short notice. Seem to be scheduled with little notice. Unless the public are extremely flexible most would find it hard to attend. I didn’t hear any mention of a second related meeting being planned after the first one.

      There is a method to Burt’s madness. At the end of the day we will not get the truth, sad but true.

    When you name a golf course Port Royal , it must live up to great expectations ! PLP didn’t name it but the course now far exceeds expectations …. Did you see it on TNT ? Millions of people around the world ohh an ah..d over the spectacular sights .

    Money well spent … Now move on people , let’s talk about the folks who feel entitled to remove perfectly government stone for personal use .

    Just go to the well of the ” Golden Bucket” who needs to keep accounting records,when the well is empty, just look under the hood.

  8. The Truth and Nothing but the Truth !! says:

    The Chairman is David Burt ??? Why ?? It should be an accounting firm as far away from the political arena as possible.
