    I wonder how that airport report is coming! Probably on one of the buses. PLP pulled the wool over all their voters eyes.

      I think we are waiting for a revision of a review on a report….but I may be wrong since there has been little noise about this since the election.

    They sure did pull the wool over their eyes. All those naysayers did was cause a whole lot of trouble unnecessarily. Even caused the pepper spraying and have the nerve to blame the OBA. I bet they will be the first to say look at our new airport it’s so nice. Yet they fought it till the end and still drumming up issue with it. Move on people or get out of here. See how far you can cause trouble in other countries. They would lock you up in a minute. Should have locked them all up here on that day.

    nice to hear that the majority of the jobs are held by Bermudians, does that mean 51 percent, 80 percent, 95 percent. Is there an understudy program in place to ensure more and more Bermudians qualify and are moving up the ladder ?
