OBA: “Premier Missed Two Opportunities”

April 30, 2019

“The Premier missed two opportunities when he promoted Wayne Furbert as Minister for Cabinet,”: OBA Leader Craig Cannonier said.

Mr Cannonier said, “The Premier said Mr Furbert had a vast amount of experience. If that is so, isn’t that experience wasted on a Ministry that never previously existed and which fell under the Premier’s remit? With so much experience, I would have thought Mr Furbert would have qualified for a higher office.

“But more importantly, the Premier missed two opportunities here. The first, would have been the abolition of this unnecessary Ministry to reduce the cost of Cabinet. That would have shown some empathy to those Bermudians who are suffering under the burden of more taxes.

“Secondly, if he was serious about the amount of talent that there is in the PLP, why didn’t he give someone else a chance and appoint a Junior Minister to do this work? Surely this was a chance to bring in someone new?”

    I think it is hilarious that the Premier promotes UBP people ahead of PLP stalwarts. Simmons has flipped flopped even more than Furbert and Swan gets a plum committee chair…. wow. If I were PLP I would be p!ssed.

  3. But Craig …he is the minister of Who……if not for him and this “new”…”costly” … “unnecessary role”…how would we ever know who is doing it?

  4. Isn’t there a specific number of mp you can have?
    If this is anything like public works ,soon there will be more mps than constituent.

    @DeOnion – I was thinking the same thing. I smell a new version of the OBA coming to fruition. They only now have to convince their electorate that this is the right thing to do…..and of course they, (the voting public) will eat it up. Wait until the new OBA/PLP open up the Immigration window and any and all will be allowed in. Get em PLP. :) :)
