    Stop it! Just stop! You do realize were the only idiotic countryside still counting this crap! Nobody cares!

    Even Biden admits the pandemic is over.

  3. Ringmaster says:

    Dim Wilson’s role has now ended. The TAF has now ended. Please let Bermuda get back to normal and let visitors, cruise ships etc in and get Bermuda working again. These restrictions on visitors and emergency powers requiring residents to ask to travel are the work of a Dictator and need to stop.

    Why is Bermuda listed with 22 of the worst regimes in the world, when we should be leading?

    Will Curtis scrap the TA and present an emergency budget?

  5. Hugh says:

    Our Covid response has veered from the sublime to the ridiculous.

    Patently now all about a Government that can’t pay its bills.

    This is all so unnecessary, let’s get on with life.
