  1. How much did that cost the taxpayers. What a racist government bda has.

    • Come Correct says:

      The last time everyone who voted checked the only racist government was the UBP/OBA as they continue to use blacks as surrogates with the hopes of winning more votes. Same play style every year and every election. The OBA’s new slogan is the same old slogan look at us we’re so diverse. Three former UBP/OBA leaders Craig Jet Gate Cannonier, Michael Dunkley and Jeanne Atherden didn’t even support SSM but they get the white ticket pass. If anyone really believes Jarion will help the Opposition win again I really hope you can hold your breath for 20 plus years.

        “the UBP/OBA”

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

      • LOL says:

        Remember their bloggers constantly say the ubp is not the oba LOL. Also that the majority of voters are racist, wrong and don’t like gays.

        • Truth says:

          That’s true.
          The majority of the electorate are Homophobic, racist and xenophobic…most of them don’t know what the big words mean, so they deny it, and then spew their homophobia, racism and xenophobia…while denying it.
          LMFAO…a true product of Bermudas educational system.

          Good of you to come clean and admit to it as well!

      • Truth says:

        The bigots running the country into the ground are the plp.
        Your government has gone out of its way, spending money it doesn’t have, to discriminate against a few gay people.
        The rest of the world can see this, and recognize your racism, homophobia and xenophobia.
        You have no tourists, and IB is tired of your threats and out right bigotry.
        You’re failing miserable, but would rather suffer in poverty than admit that you’re a bigot.

  2. Truth says:

    We don’t like diversity in Bermuda…or gay people.
    But, everyone just want to visit us…we’re so great, our new airport is overflowing.
