    Is the low numbers enough to tell the drain surgeons that less travellers are coming get rid of the TA. Or are you not done on damage controll yet.
    C’mon speak up hypocritical voters, and ,mps that are accepting trinkets over doing what’s right for bermuda.

    Yet Wilson keeps the emergency powers until November 1, and Burt the TA until April 1. Idiots and so stupid. Clearly shows someone or persons in the PLP are benefitting financially from this.
