      Was it really a protest against injustice? I don’t think so…

      If you were really serious about injustice, perhaps you should focus your energy on the PLP who have saddled multiple generations of working class Bermudians with a debt we are ill equipped to service.

      You may piss and moan about Genevieve and the bloody airport, but the reality is that Bermudians are subject to decades of economic slavery due to the incompetence of the PLP.

      • No way says:

        What a stupid fox you are. Why you think the UBP change the name to OBA?

        • Onion Juice says:

          We’ve been in economic slavery since we landed on this island, we just started getting our heads above water after working 400 years FREE, since de Civil Rights Era.
          What world you living in?

        • sandgrownan says:

          Listen numbnuts, you can’t do anything build schools, improve the roads, offer better care for seniors, etc etc etc because there’s no money.

        • hmmm says:

          A new party was formed with a new constitution…the old system was thrown out and everyone was invited to be a part of it. The OBA is completely different to the UBP. The OBA is inclusive and accessible to every Bermudian.

      1) which comments were incorrect?
      and 2) if you are serious about breaking down injustices please support same sex marriage. “Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like everyone else” Pres Obama
      Thank you.

    • jt says:

      That protest was a lot of things, but it was not a protest against injustice, despite what you may have been told.

  2. Madog says:

    What a hypocrite

  3. Garrus says:

    Very informative interview. Dunkley makes a lot of good points. I bet most of the haters won’t even watch it as they have been completely indoctrinated by the “alternative facts” of opposition propaganda.

    • hmmm says:

      There are a group on this island who are realizing that the OBA are working hard for Bermudians, and despite all the dirty tricks, emotional and destructive Trump like game playing by the PLP and its factions, the OBA are getting the country back on its feet.

    • Point boy says:

      Of course the blind sheep won’t watch. They just follow. Right off a cliff

  4. Athena says:

    An informative interview.

    Overall pertinent questions from Mr. Deacon with Mr. Dunkley providing good points and reasonable answers.

  5. Average Bermudian says:

    Call the election so there can be a peaceful transition of government.

    After today’s disclosure on the Tweed saga – public trust in this government is REALLY no more.
