  1. The truth says:

    Such a yawnnnnnn , blah stand for nothing politician, step aside

  2. Paul says:

    She should stay out of politics.

  3. Leah, you are full of it!!
    You have done absolutely NOTHING for your people.
    Do find the nearest exit and GET LOST!!

    • Onion Breath says:

      Straightforward, you’re a nasty POS.

      Speaks volumes about ‘your people’….disgusting POS.

    • The real Terry says:

      More sage advise from the biggest racial bigot on the blogs. I will never forget what he said about Flora.

      • Double S says:

        He/she is a real POS. Straight up PLP supporting racist.

  4. Rocky5 says:

    Here we have a well-meaning, dedicated, hard-working, single-mother/grandmother,
    material girl OBA MP with a big heart who’s in lockstep philosophically & ideologically with the PLP. Join, you’ll be more effective and OBA can finally disappear

    • Onion Breath says:

      ” philosophically & ideologically with the PLP.”

      So, she’s a homophobic, xenophobic bigot?…like all of the PLP?

    • Warwick Beaches says:

      I am pretty sure if she joined the PLP she wouldn’t have a voice among the chauvinistic and misogynistic bunch that run that party. I think she is in the exact right place to have her voice heard. Not to mention every PLP member is toeing someone elses’ line.

  5. Rocky5 says:

    Here’s the reality of the world. Happy people have careers. Unhappy people (even highly paid ones) have jobs. Find something you love to do and you never have to “work” a day in your life!!

  6. Thank you! says:

    Thank you for your service, compassion and hard work. Ignore the ‘haters’. I don’t see these folks trying to do anything for Bermuda except drag everyone down with their constant criticism and negativity. It isn’t easy to put yourself out there as someone will always find fault with something whether you are PLP or OBA. I appreciate your hard work and especially your honest and frank approach. Keep the faith and once again thank you for your service!

    • Onion Juice says:

      Whats funny is you have people that say, I join UBP/oba to make a difference inside out. Then come to find out that there is a systematic structure that has been ingrained for generations and anytime they try to go against the grain, in this case speak against Historical injustice that still resonates today, they are silenced or reprimanded.
      If they were convicted to the cause, why not take those positive sentiments and use it in an entity that supports your ideology or moral obligation for the people that have been oppressed by Historical Lesgislation and Policies.
      How I see it is, its like trying to convince your party to be compassionate and sensitive to the concerns of those who are decendants of the STRUGGLE is like throwing pearls to swine.

      • shrew says:

        the PLP is the LEAST progressive, least diversified political party out there.

        • Onion Juice says:

          Some people dont join PLP because they would be ostrisized by the underserved privileged circle, while some join UBP/oba for social and economic status.
          NEXT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • Double S says:

            Some don’t join the PLP for the same reason US minorities do not support the Republicans en masse. And that is simply because the latter has no qualms about disparaging and hating the former.

            The PLP are anti-30% of the population.

  7. Onion Breath says:

    “Find something you love to do and you never have to “work” a day in your life!!”

    Some bermudians love to sit on the wall…they’ve made a career out of it. LOL

  8. Stand for the Truth says:

    Onion Breath and some people hire nannies/housekeepers to do their work for them because they have shown themselves to be the lazy individuals that they are throughout history, hence the inhumane treatment of another group of people.

  9. Realist says:

    Greatly appreciated her clear comments about not being in politics for the money “she doesn’t need it”, that “she was elected by her constituents”, not the party and “she would not be crossing the floor” when there are differences”. That speaks volumes about having the right motives to do a political job. Too often it is blatantly clear persons are into politics because they have made no professional success of their lives, need the money and the benefits. Too often persons join politics for the status, follow blindly and really stand for nothing. Today, no matter what party you align yourself with, it has to be about principles and ethics or you fall for anything that will keep you in the payroll. We know who those politicians are…it’s just unfortunate far too many voted for them based on party allegiance and not for what is in the best interest of Bermuda.
