    I seriously had to double check that I wasn’t sitting in a comedy club while listening to this 26 minutes of nonsense! Bud Roban needs a reality check when he states, “Bermudians have fewer opportunities than they did 5 yrs ago” I can only guess the plp have total lost it if they actually believe that nonsense, what about the 5000 lost jobs in the last 2 yrs of the plp? And to think a woman of the cloth is sitting right next to him and says nothing when that outrages BS is spouted? I would like to hear from all three of them on what the COI revealed, yeah, like that will ever happen?

    • Game over UBP/OBA says:

      Next week you and the oba/UBP will be dust. Now lay down & be humble.

      Stop fronting surrogates to win votes.

      • Kevin says:

        if you for 1 minute think and believe the PLP is your best option you have been living in a cave for the last 10 years This is how i view the PLP
        NO Clue
        No Ideas
        No hope
        Only can play white versus Black
        Cant run on record ..they dont have one

      • Kangoocar says:

        So? Nothing of substance to counter what I said, no surprise there being what I said was factual!

      • Hair says:

        Higher power may prove you wrong, Game over!! OUCH

      • wahoo says:

        What do you mean when you say surrogate?

      • WillSee says:

        TAXING PASSIVE INCOME???????????

        • Zevon says:

          Yep. They want to tax your savings.

          And then they want to take your pension money to ‘invest’ in startups.

          • wahoo says:

            That is stoopid right?

          • Family Man says:

            Their members have a great track record when it comes to investing in start-up companies, so they must know a thing or two;

            They could start a co-op grocery store – for ‘real’ Bermudians only.
            Maybe a co-op credit union for ‘real’ Bermudians
            They could start an insurance company to insure major construction projects. Some of them even had family construction businesses that could benefit from this.
            They could start a movie theatre to entertain ‘real’ Bermudians.

            They could start a consulting business on how to become a well paid Director or a silent investor in major projects.

            The list is endless.

        • Ringmaster says:

          The PLP is a classic Socialistic party. Spend other peoples money until it runs out, which is what happened in 2011/12. Now they are likely to tax what they see as unearned income. Rent and dividends are so obvious a target what with local renting and now AirBnB. Bermudians should be very worried a large part of their income in retirement is likely to be taxed. Vision 2015 showed it.

  2. Vortex says:

    Yeah, blame the ex-pats people – like they are the problem.

    Come on PLP, is that all you got?

  3. Al B says:

    Dear PLP

    Have you really had 5 years to work on this?

    What on earth have you been doing?

    Regards, Al

  4. Abc says:

    And bermuda bye bye hope u ready if plp win we doomed

  5. Easter Lily Onion says:

    Well said Mr. Brown. All countries look after their own first – except Bermuda under the OBA. Hopefully there will not be another four years of the Great Bermudian Sell Off

    • Hmm says:

      Don’t forget we are a small town at 65,000 people, far more depended on the outside world than a larger country. Getting rid of guest workers will be to Bermuda’s detriment. It worked so well last time PLP tried it. People should earn their job not expect to be given one. This entire campaign has been scare mongering and unicorn promises.

    • hmmmm says:

      PLP sold off Bermuda by putting us in unsustainable debt for non income generating projects.

      PLP sold us off by setting a precedent re the 60:40 ownership rule with the Bank of Bermuda.

      PLP sold us off by issuing more work permits than in our history.

      Get you eyes out from behind your blinkers.

    • bee says:

      If you knew the first thing how the Bda economy works, you’d realize that EVERY Bermudian is relying on a foreigner coming here and spending money.

      • Ringmaster says:

        Always has and always will be. Up to mid 1990′s Tourism, IB and the US Base meant Bermudians could live the high live of expats/foreigners. No different now.

  6. bluwater says:

    Misery loves company. All complaints and no policy.

  7. Joe says:

    what so run everyone other or foreign out of the place and go back to growing Lillys and onions or what ?

    • Toodle-oo says:

      Not enough open land left to grow onions or lilies , or enough of anything to feed ourselves.
      Oh , and there isn’t enough fish out there to feed us either so we can scrap those ideas .

  8. Gabriel says:

    Hmmm…I think they just got owned by the reporters in the Q&A session.

  9. Smiths says:

    a hostile environment for new business? really? get your head out of the sand..

  10. yyz says:

    Booking my flight now…I’ll be there to vote against the plp :)

  11. Zevon says:

    No way they’re getting my frikkin savings.

    By the way, where’s the chicken a-as PLP candidate? I have a few things I want to discuss. Why no visit? Too frikkin scared?

  12. Real Onion says:

    the divide as you people call it is made only by yourselves…
    but carry on acting stupid if you want it to get worse..
    in the words of your own boy…we dont care what you think!

  13. Sara says:

    Of great interest is that a particular PLP candidate canvassing was asked by the household about the commission of inquiry and auditors report and he actually told them that he didn’t know about it! Can you believe that??? The koolaid is REAL!
