    I cannot support the BIU any longer at least not until they produce the financials for the last 20 years.

    • Hurricane says:

      Oh, no, Wahoo, you can’t support the BIU until they produce the financial. What on earth are they going to do without your support………….

    The union needs to encourage the working people by not going Southampton Princess for a banquet. There are plenty of auditoriums and school halls that can be used, and we need to practice economy in the light of an ailing economy. Maybe the union leadership has forgotten the struggle, same way the politicians, when you are spending other people’s,s money the blood. sweat, and tests has a very very mild impact.

    Financial transparency over emotional participation please

  6. MM says:

    I don’t think an answer will be given a out changing the venue for these banquets and reducing costs so more people can attend. Right now the cost is 125 dollars per person, at Devonshire Recreation it could be under 50,. maybe 25.It can be done.The ordinary working person needs to be highly valued, not just for the evening, but for opportunities to work in their own country.

    Grand affairs, raising cost of living every way they can and jet setting around the world first class and with chauffeurs whilst throwing our Bermudian families out into the street…. yet “we are for Bermudians and making life easier for Bermudians”???
