    Well, there is a surprise from a PLP Government that hates everything British

    What a great marketing opportunity for the BTA to capitalize on. Bermuda’s status as a piece of old England, loved by our friends to the West in particular. The UK will benefit from all the visitors, so why not Bermuda? Of course we won’t because the PLP is anti UK, so a great opportunity will be wasted, again.

    Ha-ha, utter hypocrisy. Screw the Brits, oh hang on, a day off, actually I’ve always loved the Monarchy.

    Well it is the PLP, what do you expect?


  4. I would like to suggest to all those that hate the British Monarchy, that you all prove you are not hypocrites and refuse to take the day off and head into work anyway…
