    Who is funding this party? So many causes on this island could use that money.

      I was saying this exact thing During the Americas Cup ‘BIGGEST EGO’ Party! But no one listened.

      • nerema says:

        There was a point to that, which obviously went way above your head. The only point to this is…wait, what is the point of it? Oh yes. The spend other people’s money having a private party.

    Wow man that sounds awesome! Last time they won we got a day off though so bring back “what’s her name”. Seriously though I like face painting and battles with DJs and all that there but after the excitement of parliament opening I don’t think I could handle it!

  4. Ringmaster says:

    It’s been six weeks after the election and all we have heard is the PLP ending a civil case to recover as much as possible of $20m dollars overspend identified by the Auditor General and CoI; granting a work permit to an applicant under dubious issues; and looking into Independence.

    Dos Bermuda have a Minister of Finance who has any interest in controlling an annual budget deficit of over $120m and debt of over $2.5bn and has yet to accomplish any of the promises for the first 100 days? Now throw a party? It seems that is all the PLP can do after 15 years of Governance – throw another party. Not good for Bermuda, Bermudians and tax paying others.

  5. Seniors says:

    Ahh yes, giveaways. Best way to buys votes.

    Not much diversity in the list of entertainers, whatever happened to serving all of Bermuda Mr Burt? Empty rhetoric?

  11. SMH says:

    Seriously? Didn’t they already have a “victory party” on election night. Same PLP I see.

  12. Double S says:

    Holding parties long after winning the election.

    The parallels between Trump and the PLP become more apparent everyday.

    In the first 100 days of your next PLP Government, we will execute the following plans to bring immediate change to Bermuda’s society:

    Re-establish the Bermuda First advisory group consisting of local, international business and community leaders to develop a long-term economic and social vision for Bermuda.
    Appoint a Gang Violence Reduction Coordinator to have a singular focus on implementing programmes to reduce gang violence and anti-social behaviour. The PLP will give reducing gang violence the priority it deserves.
    Grant additional powers to the existing Price Control Commission to examine ways to reduce the cost of living in Bermuda.
    Conduct an urgent review of health and safety in all public schools to ensure that all our students and teachers are learning and working in a safe environment.
    Provide financial support to students in need to ensure access to Bermuda College for all Bermudians.
    Increase job training to prepare Bermudians to fill jobs held by guest workers.
    Commence the installation of Wi-Fi in all public schools and ensure that all schools have functioning computer labs so our students have access to the latest technology.
    Provide access to funding to community clubs via a loan guarantee programme enabling them to upgrade their facilities and become self-sufficient while employing Bermudians.
    Double the guarantee capacity of the Bermuda Economic Development Corporation (BEDC) to give more access to capital for entrepreneurs.
    Appoint a Director of Cooperative Economics at the BEDC to promote cooperatives within Bermuda to boost community-based economic empowerment.
    Conclude negotiations with Public Sector Unions to ensure continued provision of high-quality public services.
    Establish a Bipartisan Committee on Immigration Reform to ensure fairness in our immigration system while putting Bermudians first.
    Establish a Tax Reform Commission to make Bermuda’s tax system fairer and increase Bermuda’s global competitiveness to stimulate economic activity and to create jobs for Bermudians.
    Reverse the OBA’s immigration policy which removed the requirement that businesses who bring in overseas entertainers must also employ a Bermudian group at the venue at the same time.
    Install fitness equipment in Bermuda’s public parks.
    Review the privatisation contract between AECON and the Bermuda Government for the L.F. Wade International Airport to see if Bermuda can get a better deal.
    Issue a Request for Information (RFI) for the establishment of a Technology Hub at Southside.
    Implement the SAGE Commssion’s recommendation to establish three permanent Parliamentary Oversight Committees in order to improve governance, reduce waste and increase efficiency.
    Update the Ministerial Code of Conduct to ensure that the Cabinet is held to the highest ethical standards.
    Implement a Code of Conduct for members of Parliament.
    Implement the Code of Practice for Project Management and Procurement
