    How convenient Bermuda is a target of Russia. A few weeks ago it turned out Bermuda couldn’t even afford a spare light bulb for Gibbs Hill. Government’s IT must be so ancient.

  2. Steve says:

    More B/S from Burt. South P will never open again.

  3. Kim Smith says:

    I felt galled by a lot of the Premier’s press conference today and particularly in the segment where he addressed the Fairmont Southampton SDO, more broadly at minute 14.

    Today, as well as over the past years he has consistently failed to acknowledge the significant public engagement on the issue of that SDO application and has made no reference whatsoever of the many very valid points that have been put forward in over 100 objections to the application by Bermudians who stand for the preservation of our limited green open spaces over foreign speculative development.

    He tries to suggest that he and the PLP government are well-known for consulting. In fact, he said, that they have been accused of ‘consulting too much’ on important matters that affect the island. There are many who legitimately disagree with him. People are taken in with his eloquence and quick-thinking but need to watch out for the political smoke and mirrors.

    The Premier claims there is broad support for the Special Development Order, how are you measuring this and how many of those persons know anything at all about what has been proposed or… as has been claimed all along… was this a ‘done deal’ from the start, struck between the current government and Gencom?

  4. question says:

    If in doubt, blame Russians. I’m sure their main priority right now is making things difficult for Bermuda’s ancient civil service IT dept.
