Deputy PLP Leader Walter Roban remarked, “With Bermudian jobs continuing to be lost while jobs for non-Bermudians are the only category experiencing growth, it is clear that Bermudians are looking for ideas and solutions that will get our people back to work, build more businesses and create a more inclusive Bermuda.”

    I am very pleased with the panels and meetings the PLP have been having lately. Good well respected panelists, good turnouts and quality discussions. Well done PLP.
    Looking forward to a much needed change from the arrogance of the OBA.

      “. Good well respected panelists,”

      LOL, you spelled bigot wrong.

      “quality discussions.”

      Hilarious…you forgot the ‘sarcasm’ tags.

      “Looking forward to a much needed change from the arrogance of the OBA.”

      You look forward to more indiscriminate spending, and much larger debt, and more job losses?
      You plp guys are pretty weird.

      “Good turn out”????

      From what little the photos show, I’d guess the crowd to be around 20 at best. I look forward to being told what proposals are forthcoming.

      arrogance? who cares its everywhere. Elect the most competent government, if you feel that is the PLP then vote accordingly.Maybe we should have a political mrs congenielity so we can vote for the person we like and get that off our chest so we dont endanger our country through an ill conceived check mark on the ballot.

    Mr. Roban let’s hear you talk about the effects of the Commission of Inquiry on the PLP leading into the upcoming election and how you feel about senior members of your party being singled out.

    Where are all of the young people. Is there anyone in the crowd under 50 years old. Remember folks – PLP’s mandate is “Vision 2025″. How many in that crowd will STILL BE employable in 8 years time?

    Where are the young folks?????
