Premier and Minister of Finance David Burt is in Europe for meetings in London, Paris and Brussels, saying that “Bermuda has a recognised leadership position in transparency and compliance and our delegation will reinforce that message.”

Premier Burt stated, “This week I have a series of meetings in London, Paris and Brussels.

“Bermuda has a recognised leadership position in transparency and compliance and our delegation will reinforce that message when we meet with key figures in the OECD, the EU, and the British Government.

      Transparency and compliance, yet the travel expenses website is still lacking in any information since the PLP came to power.

    Ah so that’s what he’s been doing. Booking his vacation.

  3. somuchless says:

    Flip. He’s gone again and haven’t even released his travel expenses from his Nyc trip. Plp what happened to the transparency? I forgot that went out the door July 18th.

    • Bermudian Patriot says:

      Jus fax the tax dollars spent, to the media outlets. Or mail it, with a lil stamp. Or, that new thingy, email? Or have ya assistant drive by the 3 outlets and drop it off, that would take about six minutes. Or get on TV and admit you don’t wish transparency, in any form! Every person in Government is held to timely submissions. How you gonna explain this to investors? Some ting dun smell right here…said, everybody!

    These are the meetings where a representative of Bermuda has to attend to defend Bermudas position as a tax heven….let’s hope it goes well. Unlike the recent US trip, this one is mandatory…

  7. Up D hill says:

    The world will know Bermuda is doomed with the nonscence coming from Burts mouth in these meetings!

    The EU won’t be fooled by smooth talking BS.

    Well done Premier. This is exactly what you should be doing with your time. The other posters here talking rubbish about travel expenses are in a dream world. If the Premier did NOT do this, he would not be doing his job as the leader of our country.

    I am an OBA supporter and I commend Premier Burt for his focus since taking office.

    • somuchless says:

      Focus of spending the people’s money.

    • Jus' Wonderin' says:

      Where’s the transparency in not releasing travel expenses?! Ya not an OBA support stfu lmfao…

    • wahoo says:

      I too am an OBA supporter and I congratulate the premier and hope he travels all the time.

    It is the lure of the Jet.

    Where’s the travel website? Something don’t make sense when they said it had to be taken down for upgrades – it’s been months – what happened to accountability?
