    I Prefer Independence but Accept Bermuda is in a Stable Governmental Position.

    • Really? says:

      “Government is in a stable position”
      Are you living under a rock?
      No independence should even be attempted with these clowns at the helm!

    • Question says:

      We are well on our way to becoming a failed state.

    Minimal, if anything, to kick start the economy. Demanding PRC’s “invest” in Bermuda? What the f*** does that mean? They already invest in Bermuda by simply being here. That’s the whole point about immigration reform.

    How about this. PRC for anyone here for 10 years, Status for anyone here 15. Scrap 60/40 altogether.

    Municipal Reform? Cash grab for the docks because the PLP have bankrupted the country. $3bn and counting.

    • WHAT? says:

      Sorry your obaUBP=Trump party got kick out. Now go join the five stooges and 1 JETGATE.

  3. sandgrownan says:

    Oh, and by the way, these clowns still haven’t arranged for the trash to be collected in Smiths this week.

    • WHAT? says:

      Your vote didn’t count and will not count next election when the FDM removes your obaUBP for GOOD!

    They are making PRC harder….are they mad?

    I’ve been here 17 years and was thinking about it, but as well as doubling the fee they now want me to pay into a random pot for others.

    Thanks but no thanks Burt.

    • WHAT? says:

      You’re welcome to go back from where you came from. Oh let me guess Bermuda is better because your still here.
