    I am from Warwick, Bermuda and no amount of cabinet reshuffling in tbe UK should cover up what Britian has done to me as a black Bermudian. Does the Premier have time for a meeting with me? I have been denied rights to return to my birthplace, employment opportunities and am essentially being kept away from my home due to British scandals that have nothing to do with me. As a black Bermudian how coiuld I be the cause of Britian’s social or financial problems? They take too many liberties with my life and freedom based on old PLP photos.

      “I have been denied rights to return to my birthplace”

      If your birthplace is Bermuda you cannot be denied entry. Our Constitution guarantees the right of every Bermudian the right to enter Bermuda.

      • LOL - the real one says:

        That can always be reinterpreted by the privy council.

        • Joe Bloggs says:

          Bermuda’s Constitution seems pretty clear to me.

          Except with his consent, no person shall be hindered in the enjoyment of his freedom of movement, that is to say, the right to move freely throughout Bermuda, the right to reside in any part thereof, the right to enter Bermuda and immunity from expulsion therefrom.

          That provision is, of course, subject to the Bermuda Immigration and Protection Act, but that Act does not affect the rights of Bermudians.

    • LOL - the real one says:

      You are crazy. You can’t return because you’re institutionalized.
      Stay in your padded room.

    • YES!!! Call, then schedule an appointment. He is due back in Bermuda this Friday!

    Coincidently, the conference allows time off for Christmas shopping.

  3. Joe Bloggs says:

    But … I thought our Premier hated everything British.

  4. Steve says:

    And deputy Premier went too? Wrong.
    Who is acting Premier before these 2 clowns are back.

    • Ringmaster says:

      Seems clear Roban is being groomed to take over from Burt in the near term. Shows how shallow the gene pool is.

      • Joe Bloggs says:

        To paraphrase American pundits in the 1990s, if you reduce a family tree to a family Bush, you cannot hide as much under it.

      • White Wash says:

        When is the oba tricking more….I mean rolling out more surrogates and clowns for the next beating/election?

    • Hilarious! says:

      Joe Bloggs was appointed Acting Premier.
