    Why are we allowing a foreigner without a permit to get involved in our country’s affairs
    Tweed is a troublemaker and needs to go

    • Toleratate says:

      OMG…. did he just start out the night by asking people to remember what the date tomorrow represents…. so now an airport deal that he disagrees with is being held in comparison to the actions from 1977…… and if he wants to big up the assembled panel as “great”, he should realize that NOT ONE represents the argument for the current deal… so NO it’s not “great”, it is one sided… praying to god to dispense justice…. what am I listening too…. come on Bermuda… really…

  2. Justin says:

    Why didn’t they invite Bob Richards? It’s hardly a debate when all of the panelists agree with each other.

    • Quinton Berkley Butterfield says:

      You mean like the OBA member only meeting they had a few months ago?

      • Justin says:

        Oh shut up. You were probably one of those people shouting ‘no, no, no’ at the public town hall meeting that was shut down.

        ‘Feels like you’re trying to beat me down like a slave’ – Derrick Burgess.

        • Onion says:

          No. He wasn’t. Show some respect.

          The reason they had the member’s only meeting was because they were getting a lot of heat from OBA members about the airport. Once people in the OBA understood and had it explained to them they supported it.

      • Justin says:

        In all honesty, it looks to me like it was nothing more than a rallying cry. Bob Richards would have probably schooled them and they know it, so they simply didn’t invite them. I get it…

      • Toleratate says:

        you do know that was after failed attempts to hold meetings to pass on information…. so they held one to inform their member that would not be disturbed…. hey, I’m no OBA fan and would like to have heard it in the original forum that was attempted before selfish people interrupted…. If your going to criticize be genuine and honest.

      • 32n64w says:

        Your point? The Government hosted many earlier public meetings to share the exact same information with the electorate.

    • Like the commission Dunkley set up

  3. Widget says:

    Seriously Peoples Choice. Please tell me what is the difference between this Airport project and the Billion Dollar airport Dr. brown was going to build and Privatize.. Yup privatize.

    And I have to give it to you on this one. Never seen a one sided panel like this one before. Oh no sorry your meetings are always one sided.

    • Mr. Observer says:

      The causeway and swing bring was included

      • Widget says:

        @Mr. Observer. Seriously the causeway and swing bridge is worth $750,000,000.are you serious

    • What?? says:

      Why lie? There was no billion dollar airport plan ever! The PLP made it very clear that they had no plans to proceed with the new terminal recommended in the 2008 Master Plan. And there WAS NEVER any mention of privatizing the airport.

  4. Evie says:

    Lolololol hahahahaha you ppl are funny as hell you never seen a one sided panel it’s called HOA the OBA have been shovelling every amendment or made up law down the throats of Bermudians for 4 years its throw up time. MD you spineless jelly fish your moto should be if you hear something listen

    • Toleratate says:

      Apples and oranges… you do know in a Party system the HOA will ALWAYS have one side with the majority…. its called winning an election… per the spineless jelly fish jab…. is that really necessary….it’s in the same poor taste as say… the Backstabbing Burt jab… why must you resort to name calling… kinda cheapens your message….

  5. somuchless says:

    Bunch of clowns.

    • Honestly says:

      Clowns are representing this company without considering the people. Making decisions that are bad for this country. Sick of the OBA Better yet the UBP. The Forget they were voted in by the civilians. They just didn’t wake up in this position of authority. Wake up Bermudians and stop this mess they try over and over again.

  6. Widget says:

    And for the record I consider myself A political and look at things with an open mind. For example, I do not like Orange Hitler or as most people refer to him as Donald Trump. I support those that do thing in this case that are good for the people and the country. Right now I see nothing productive with what the PLP are doing for Bermuda. after all you had Fifteen years to do it right and left us billions in debt. Remember the old woman on TV that used to say “Where’s the beef” well I ask you “Where’s the money”

  7. Mr. Observer says:

    Remember this is technology, you can hide behind your doors but you can’t hide from technology

  8. Riley says:

    Nothing moderate about the moderator, IMHO.

  9. Jus' Askin' says:

    OBA can/will pass any thing THEY want through :-(

    PLP is WEAK as an opposition :-(

    We Didn’t Vote for Dunkley and He has proven that He Could Never Win an Election

    He is The Worst Premier in Bermuda’s History

    I hope He Knows, He Too will Face a Commission of Inquiry

    OBA and it’s members should be Forced to pay for any penalties for cancelling this airport deal

    Enough is Enough

    Vote UBA ~ United Bermuda Alliance

    “Make Bermuda Great Again”

  10. Warlord says:

    What happened 39 years ago has nothing to do with an airport getting built.They got what they deserved

    • FML says:

      another onew that just don’t get it….Like the OBA they just don’t get it…lmfao.

  11. John says:

    Let’s all give a big same ole same ole Burt Yawwwwwwnnnnnnnnn!

  12. hmmmmmmmmmmm says:

    you all are a bunch of jokers. ant to march when you can not articulate your concerns the correct way in the house of assembly. every decent argument you have had and every legitimate concern you have had has been answered. but because you are not the one bringing it forward under your banner you want to act like children and throw around misinformation and conjecture.

    grow up. push this through and say I was part of this. instead of wanting to say I did this. bunch of children

    want to march on the house. march about the condition of our schools. that is worth marching about.

  13. truth teller says:

    Whew standing room only…… And I agree send Mr ,tweed home for Christmas, one way.

  14. Um Um Like says:

    Look, a room full of people who have never left the island.

  15. James H says:

    Tweed claims he has shown restraint. Laugh of the century.

    • FML says:

      He HAS shown restraint.

      • James H says:

        Show me how this foreign trouble maker has shown restraint. He uses religion as an excuse for bad behaviour and should be deported. He is on a permit! He has no business criticizing local affairs. He needs to leave now!

  16. Takbir Karriem Sharrieff says:

    Good book to read,,,,,The fire next Time…….check Brown and Co,,,,,,,,,

  17. Silence Do Good says:

    Why is Tweed still here. I thought we told him to get steppin. The only person creditable on the panel is Larry Burchall if only the PLP listen to him when they were in power.
