  1. Truth is killin’ me... says:

    Scott Simmons all the way! All the way Scott Simmons!

  2. Ringmaster says:

    Talk, talk, talk, talk, talk and more talk but nothing of substance. The PLP are the Government and need to lead but they seem to be in Opposition/Election mode all the time. Don’t want to face the hard issues. Look as if they are doing something, like another Committee, and all the while Bermuda is drowning in increasing debt.

  3. WSP says:

    Good ole snooze fest.

  4. 2 Bermudas says:

    A gathering of the titty milk drinkers!! Ha ha ha!!

  5. Slipnut says:

    Looks like a seniors luncheon with grandchildren sprinkled in. Where is the diversity and cross section of the country?

  6. Heineken says:

    Basically bashing the OBA, but nothing about how they will sort out the mess they put us in. Folk so desperate to get to the food (always a vote winner) that Tweed had to beg them to shut up while he blessed the food.

  7. Real Deal says:

    interesting this licensing policy for implemented in Cally the big guys will just buy the ones that have first picking to the licensing. and they will sell weather they want to or not because they will not have the capital as the big guys. just hopefully they dont sell out for cheap

  8. Let’s take a look a medical marijuana…240 million in taxes ,1.8 billion in tourism in Colorado alone.

    We as a country need this influx of revinue.

    Our Island , our people , our government would all prosper.

    If it is prescription insurance would gain as well.

    Mostly though…there would be a lot less violence!

  9. PLP All the Way See says:

    Congratulations to Senator Alexa Lightbourne and Senator Owen Darrell, it was obvious that you will be rewarded.

    • wahoo says:

      Isn’t self reward the reason so many are in politics n the first place?

  10. facts of the rock says:

    This evening is scheduled to include remarks from Premier David Burt, MP Chris Famous,
    Bitcoin Burt and Fake History Famous will bore your pants off,meanwhile please bring supplies of Titty Milk.

  11. Pork & Bean says:

    Where are the all the cryptocurrency jobs and being advertised? Why is the college not offering courses if it is the next big thing? Should we not be preparing our youth and unemployed for the many job opportunities? Or is this more smoke and mirrors.

  12. wahoo says:

    One long winded election campaign….We are in trouble if our government continues to play the victim and do not take our economy seriously.

  13. Roban for Premier says:

    Roban for Premier I say, pretty unusual that the Class of 1998 still have people pretending that they can perform in 2018.

  14. Sandgrownan says:

    Sorry Bernews ain’t watching that! It’s bad enough listening to endless moronic press conferences and endless expressions of concern!

    No thanks – two hour snore fest!

  15. Conspiracy Theory says:

    If we could convert all that hot air into electricity the Island would be set for months…

  16. Dready says:

    More attempts , successful at that, to brainwash the sheeple as the politically connected raid the purse . Thanks sheeple, for believing us!

  17. DeOnion says:

    why does he sound like he is still in Opposition?

  18. red rose says:

    Did he given an explanation for the four seasons trip?

  19. Pea ell pea says:

    Ok, so having watched the full speech, it is very clear that there is no plan, other than fintech, to rescue our tanking economy ….

  20. Honestly says:

    Funny how this grabbed all of you negative people’s attention! Why even read the article or look at the video! You all are full of it! OBA are not perfect. Never will be. They’ve given lots of local opportunities away. Hush!!

  21. DeOnion says:

    Pretty embarrassing when you have to tell the audience it is OK to applaud ….

  22. izlandgurl says:

    I watched the entire 2.5 hours, I am not a party person, I can say I saw a plan for our future, I was impressed with the coverage, the interviews. I loved the focus on the contributions of the female members of the party, that really resonated with me. I am glad the i I along with my two children and my husband took the time to watch the broadcast.

    I will never be a card carrying member of the plp, but over the last year i have become a believer of their plans and platform.

    look at our country and the difference in our communities and I am forced to make some critical decisions. I can tell you this, the OBA did not speak to me or stand up for me.

    The PLP are not perfect but their message(s), appeal to me. My core group of friends are all young professional and working class Bermudians. Whilst we don’t all agree on everything, we do agree on this one thing, we will take the PLP over the OBA any day of the week.

    I have never commented on bernews before, but the negative polarizing comments are really sickening. Trolls please save your comments !!!

    • Double S says:

      please highlight the improvements in the community as you put it. Where are they exactly? The busses? The economy?

    • Truthhertz says:

      So you, your husband and your friends approve of xenophobia, racism and homophobia? What a nice bunch you guys seem to be.

    • Jonathan Land Evans says:

      I must say, you sound like a script written by a political consultancy with a view to attracting independent voters! The best of luck to you, though, in either case.

  23. cpm says:

    All Burt did was criticize the opposition, hardly an inspiring speech

  24. Thank you Premier Burt.
    An astute step forward thank you…Now you will have all the revinue you will need …and licencing will provide re enforced behaviour
    No body for any reason would risk losing that!

  25. DeOnion says:

    I listened to Famous and can hardly believe what I heard: “We have just passed legislation for new banking institutions. The banks nowadays do not want to do blockchain because they are figuring why should we let the PLP do something to help its people?’
