    Another Bermudian driven from his home.

    Sad for Bermuda but well done Glenn!

    • watching says:

      he was not driven from his home. he had a very successful career in Bermuda in different capacities. Now he has decided to go back to TV journalism. Why make more of it than it is? I am sure working on NBC boston will give him much more exposure than working for local news channels.

      • Joe Bloggs says:

        Glenn and the BTA were vilified by the PLP Government at every opportunity, hence my comment that he was driven from his home.

        Why wasn’t Glenn made head of the BTA after Kevin Dallas quit?

    • TRUTH says:

      I wish him the best. This shows that black men are equal to white men. Unfortunately the obaUBP only found this out after changing the party name. It’s also the very reason the party is having a hard time right now finding candidates. Good luck oba.

        That’s sad.

        • Wake up Bie says:

          Look around Bermuda is getting just like the USA politics! Race is the only reason governments are winning today.
