    • Politicking says:

      You fools think anyone will vote for the UBPoba a party that tried to change its name to runaway and hide from its racist past. A party that is majority 1 segment of the community but continues to front blacks. Why do you it was 30-6?!?!?! Same old UBP and you all never learn.

      • Joe Bloggs says:

        The UBP was dissolved more than a decade ago. Stop living in the past.

      • Hmmm says:

        They don’t learn that’s why they continue FRONTING blacks.

        • what says:

          OBA is not fronting blacks it is an all inclusive party made up of any and all Bermudians. There is no racism in the OBA. Stop spreading lies.

          • Facts says:

            LMFAO the OBA party is all white with black reps spinkled on the top and sides.Hold a large dinner or protest and make sure the best media BERNEWS is there to take pictures.Oh I get it you dont want Bermuda to know the truth! The voters already know the truth lololol,

          • Hmm says:

            You have jokes clown or you’re just DUMB. The people know how the UBP =oba operates the experiment failed.

  6. Steve says:

    The racist party are PLP and F&F. Simply as that. Blurt forgot his green

  7. LOL - the real one says:

    The plp is a blatantly racist party.

    Those of you trying to change the narrative are way too late, and really…you just look like fools at this point.

    Be proud of your anti white racism, it’s who you are!

  8. Question says:

    About the only thing the PLP really believes in, apart from lining the pockets of its leadership, is hatred of white people and foreigners.

  9. Every Election says:

    Funny how the obaUBP push the we R diverse but in reality Bermuda they only have blacks at the front as pawns and surrogates . Every single one of them is being used. The voters know this .The racist politricks continue year after year as they use the same MO. This is why the voters continue to vote PLP or don’t vote at ALL. 30-6
