    Good grief! The first 5 minutes made me sick. This appears to be nothing but a plp rally.

    • Real Talk says:

      PEOPLE like you always vote UBP aka oba.
      People like you never get it.
      People like you always look for surrogates to help you win election.

      People like you never understand your community and will continue to WHITE WASH your trump agenda.

      • Wahoo says:

        I always vote OBA because plp are useless. The only thing they have accomplished is putting us on the EU blacklist. They tore down the building at Shelley Bay in an act of hostility. They have ruined public transportation, trash collection has been halfed apparently they have failed the children of TNT. The list is long but you don’t want to hear it. Go get yourself some unsweetened koolaid.

      • truthertz says:

        Hate gays, hate people that don’t think or look like you, hate foreigners, attack the media etc…..and yet you have the nerve to compare others to Trump?

        Self-awareness is severely lacking in some I guess.

        • Wake up says:

          The OBA did nothing for the gays and didn’t care when they had the numbers to change the laws for them…………………………………… lets all remember that.

          • DREB says:

            “The OBA did nothing for the gays ”

            …and the PLP is actively trying to remove rights….but you don’t see this hypocrisy because you’re too ignorant!

      • wahoo says:

        people like you are easily fooled.

      • Mark says:

        And people like YOU are why this island is doomed. Too dumb to see through your party’s racist scaremongering.

        • DREB says:

          “Too dumb to see through your party’s racist scaremongering.”

          They embrace it, they are homophobic and xenophobic…they usually deny it because they don’t know what all those big words mean….

    You cannot have a town hall meeting in a parish that doesn’t have a town.

  3. bluenose says:

    Nice projector screen. smdh.

  4. Starting Point says:

    So,the government, largest employer in Bermuda, organization who collect millions in tax revenues, handles negotiations with countries around the world, implements legislation to affect all Bermudians…..

    uses a sheet for their presentation screen….


    • sandgrownan says:

      It’s because, my friend, that they are morons.

    • Jt says:

      Probably a high thread count for sharper images.

  5. Rocky5 says:

    More of the pandering PLP

  6. inna says:

    A sheet for a projector screen?!?!

    • question says:

      That’s a slick presentation. Chuck a sheet up.

      • wahoo says:

        Should spray paint R.I.P Bermuda on and hang from a wall somewhere.

  7. Bermydude says:

    What a joke…

  8. MsFedUp says:

    What’s with the prayer? Not everyone is Christian. Separation of Church & State. It’s a town hall meeting, not a church!

  9. Cheryl-Ann Griffin says:

    But what do you think of the conceptual plan? Beautiful isnt it!
    Visually pleasing, Environmentally pleasing, Accomodating for all, especially those with physical and visual challenges,plans to meet ADA standards,Structurally Bermudian, Providing a Bermudian beach experience for those residents and visitors who have had limited access until now.
    Persons at that meeting could see the benefits. A sheet doesnt matter when we can provide that joy.

    • question says:

      It’s a gazebo projected onto a sheet, and a rubber mat.

    • Crap says:

      Bunch of crap! Appeases the small group of ladies at Shelley Bay and ignores the needs of the rest of Bermuda and our Tourism product! Pure crap and a waste of time and money!

      • DREB says:

        All this whining over the worst beach in the world! LOL@laverne

    • Mark says:

      So was Steinhoff’s plan. Oh wait, you can’t support that!!

    • Anonymous says:

      It all does look very nice, but who is paying for it though?

  10. Joe Bloggs says:

    A pleasant looking concept. It is a shame that the food facilities that were there for so long will be left out.

    My only criticism is that in order to enter the new car park people have to cross the railway trial with their cars. Will that not be dangerous for people using the railway trial?

  11. Crap says:

    And the gazebo will be gone after first hurricane that’s blows through! Bunch of morons!

    • Wake up says:

      It will last longer than the OBA. Prediction the party will split next election after they lose.

      wait 4 it

      • Toodle-oo says:

        Good ! The faster we have a real alternative the better .

      • Sandgrownan says:

        Became that’s all that matters.

        The island is circling the drain and that’s all that matters. Prick.

    • Mark says:

      The party faithful will help hold it down.

  12. Tired says:

    So tired of you haters. Nothing the government does pleases you. Well done Col Burch and MP Burgess.

    • Mark says:

      So tired of lemmings like you. If Cornel Major Captain Burch and Burgess are your idea of heroes then we remain doomed.

    • wahoo says:

      You just congratulated the two biggest haters in Bermuda. If they would like my blessings they could make some real effort to attract my vote.

  13. Triangle Drifter says:

    Looks like something a student threw together the afternoon before the rally/meeting.

    Sad, they could not remember to bring a projection screen. Very organised.
