Video: Interview With OBA’s Nick Kempe

October 30, 2018

Shadow Finance Minister Nick Kempe is speaking with Bernews this afternoon [Oct 30], sitting down for a live interview with journalist Don Burgess, and you can tune in below.

In September of this year the OBA announced that Mr Kempe would rejoin the One Bermuda Alliance where he would serve the Party’s new Senate leader, and he was also later announced as the Shadow Finance Minister.

Mr Kempe, who previously served as an OBA Senator and as Party Chairman, resigning as Chairman back in November 2017, rejoined the OBA after Craig Cannonier was re-appointed as Opposition Leader, saying, “After a year of apathy and silence from the Opposition, I was pleased to see Craig Cannonier lead the Parliamentary group in into action. This gave me hope all was not lost. I am rejoining the OBA now after a year away because Craig agrees we must change course.”

During this interview we plan to ask the Shadow Finance Minister about his views on the economy, taxation,  politics, the living wage and more, and you can tune in live below.

    With Cannon man the leader, OBA is going no where!

    • question????? says:

      They trying to use the same tactic having a black leader to generate black votes. Makes you wonder why a party like the OBA that’s 98% white voters…………. after the last bashing election…….why would they place him there hmmmm.

    • JAYBIRD says:

      I love how we talk about political parties as if its a sporting contest. The bottom line is that the only winner or loser when its all said and done is Bermuda itself. I don’t think we’re winning at this point in time…
