    No need for meetings, the unions and the present government are one and the same, ‘partners’ indeed!

  2. Really says:

    Why was this meeting held a Hamilton Princess? More money being spent… the money the country does not have.

      They do it because they know they can get away with it. No one holds them accountable for anything. That’s why we $5bn in the hole.

        People like you destroyed the UBP and the OBA. I should know I use to be a strong supporter of both parties. Your hate for a black party and it’s members is so obvious.

        • Samdgrownan says:

          Nothing to do with race, everything to do with competence and close to being $5bn in the hole.

          Keep blaming the OBA. Idiot.

    • Casino says:

      They want a casino there so they pay to play! You think traffic is bad now wait until they open up a casino on putts bay road! Where are you CURB?

    • Unbelievable says:

      I’d rather Bermuda just go 100% bankrupt in order to get this mess right. Christ knows why PLP voters are incapable of holding their party to account.
