    Why do we need 36 MPs for an island of just 60,000?

    - Barbados has 30 MPs and has almost 290,000 citizens.

    - Jamaica has 63 MPs and almost 3mn citizens.

    - Cayman has 19 MPs and almost the same amount of citizens as Bermuda

    - Bahamas has 39 MPs and almost 400k citizens

    - St. Lucia has 18 MPs and almost 180k citizens

    You want to save some money then slash the number of MPs to 2 a parish.

      And they’re not exactly performance based are they?

      There are some obvious jokes about value though….

    • clearasmud says:

      I agree 2 per parish would be enough

      • Young Smith says:

        Exactly. Get rid of half of them. Crazy savings per term.

    • Kathy says:

      Excellent way to start saving money!

    What a waste of time and paper, still calling for 50% cut in politrickster wages.

    And the schools are in sheet shape, when we where told they are perfect.
    A shamble of a bus service.
    a lot of dead weight in the cabinet just collecting a wage.

    Well done voters, wont be long.

    • Kathy says:

      Hey, what did the OBA do for public education???

      • LaV says:

        Obviously not enough…just so you know, the OBA aren’t the government.

        • Trump supporter says:

          It’s a shame they keep thinking they are still in opposition, proven they don’t know how to govern.

        • Joe Bloggs says:

          No, but the OBA did form the Government for 5 of the last 20 years. Clearly the feeling is that the OBA did not do enough to fix Bermuda between 2012 and 2017

    The real problem is add this all up and you will see a very large amount of money we are paying for sub standard work and if they were your employees they would get a fail mark on their appraisals and many would be let go
    The government is over sized from the top to the bottom
    We need reform and and it must start at the top

  5. The oba is sooo notorious.
    Their earnings as government were not posted.
    Get over it, OBA, and suck it up….LOSERS

      It warms my heart to think that your intense hatred of anything non PLP is so strong that you probably have serious trouble sleeping at night trying to think of how you’re going to come up with yet another lie filled twisted mis-truth of a post here at your next and earliest opportunity .

      • LaV says:

        How could it sleep with that foul taste in its mouth?

  6. Those Who Can Do says:

    Two MP’s per Parish and call it a day. Most members are voted in with something like 600 votes. Ridiculous.

  7. Me says:

    The spend spend spend plp at their best work now paying themselves while the rest of us get our rear ends taxed
