    Good luck to Simone Barton – this would be great for the area, with her experience in hotel industry, banking and now with the charity world for healthcare, this would be great fit!

        Onion Juice, based on your posts over the last few years , I’m pretty sure you are .

        • Yea ok 2000 job promise says:

          Who on brain washed Simone to be a sacrificial lamb for the UBP/OBA. This woman will join Donte Hunte soon.

          Simone ask Donte what happened in 2012 when he lost to Wayne. The same fools who brained washed Donte are now brain washing you to be the next fool.

    • Spectator says:

      Couldn’t agree more! Great news, Simone.

    • Toodle-oo says:

      Yep , Simone’s a great gal . Sincere , genuine and believes in getting things done . Fair treatment for all .

  2. Bda Gal says:

    Hey Ms. Simone!! Love that you have stepped up to represent!

  3. Francis says:

    OBA showing quality again.

  4. puzzled says:

    Actually people are stepping forward because they don’t want to go back.
    Going to write that one down.

  5. Rasta says:

    Great candidates.

  6. casadeanale says:

    I see a theme here OBA rolling out people with strong character and proven skills, the other party just divisive whinge bags gagging for power…Not too difficult to see who the best candidates are.

    • Reality Check 2017 says:

      Opinion only – - very subjective – just pointing that out.

      • Cowpoly says:

        I agree with casadanal..OBA have shown a diverse cross section of candidates. This means to me they will be able to represent all of Bermuda….

        Save your wallet, vote OBA

      • Onion says:

        Not really. Look at the resumes.

  7. Jus' Wonderin' says:

    Great candidates….especially Simone! Wayne ya goooooooooooooone!

  8. Rocky5 says:

    Simone would be excellent MP

  9. Cowpoly says:

    Ms Barton gets my vote every time over flip flop Furbert. Canvass your area Ms Barton and you will win. You represent a strong, proven party while flip flop represents nothing but hot air.

    Save your wallet, vote OBA

    • far from it says:

      one thing about some oba surpporters all that matters is …. 2 Bermudas

      • Say So Say Right says:

        Hmmm, and how exactly doe the PLP show that they are inclusive of all?

        Name one company not directly associated with the PLP that won a single government contract in the 14 years they were in power! Surely it can’t be that hard? Lets see

        Port Royal – PLP Member and / or Family?
        Cruise ship Pier – PLP Member and / or Family?
        Berkeley – PLP Member and / or Family?
        TCD Building – PLP Member and / or Family?
        Bermuda Emissions – PLP Member and / or Family?
        Dame Lois Court House Building – PLP Member and / or Family?

  10. Step up says:

    I hope Peter Barrett comes around the neighborhoods so I can get an understanding as to what he brings to the table. I so don’t want Derrick “…” Burgess with any power. … seems a divisive person.

    • wahoo says:

      “Word on de street” says Barrett gonna win did time.

      “Word on de street” says they coming to gettcha DB.

    • are you kidding me? says:

      couldn’t agree with you more…

  11. Keepin' it Real!...4Real! says:

    Just a quick message to all young voters.

    Believe half of what you see…and none of what you hear.

  12. Francis says:

    PLP really can’t best this line up. Flip Flop Furbert – anti diversity and out for self. Just go away and let the real stars shine!

  13. Coffee says:

    You know it boggles the mind that such intelligent people would allow themselves to be led by the nose with old rope held by a leader who has never won a single election ever . Old habits die hard , he won’t win this one , history will repeat in July .

  14. No Laughing Matter says:

    Simone for Minister of Health!!!

  15. Long bay trading says:

    OBA all the way!

  16. Yahoo says:

    Guess we are supposed to forget about Sylvan Richards’ Olympic boondoggle…

    • Cowpoly says:

      Go look under another rock for a story…like the blatant abuse of the government funds by the PLP …… party.
      Sylvan told you what happen..get over it

      • Yahoo says:

        Nope, he is unfit for office. No matter what anyone else has done in either party, what he did was abuse of the public purse and he should be fired. He’s not the only one but he is the only one in this article…

      • Onion Juice says:

        Scotland Yard saw no crime, get over it.

  17. Hurricane says:

    Like Sylvan blatantly abused his position and tax payer to party in Brazil

  18. Average Bermudian says:

    what a waste of f…… film
