    Smart advice John.
    Take care.

  2. Ringmaster says:

    What’s very telling is that Sir John is recommending going back to the format of Bermuda being run by independents prior to the PLP appearing.

  3. Watching says:

    Seems desperate for attention. I think he wiii be embarrassed at the polls if he runs. Don’t go out like that Sir John.

  4. Triangle Drifter says:

    It is so refreshing to listen to someone who can think and speak on his feet. No notes. No shuffling of papers. No ah, ah, ahs or uh, uh, uhs. Just straight forward speech. Easy when you know what you are talking about.

    How interesting. A Black Bermudian former UBP leader who is considering a return to politics and is not being vilified by trolls as a “surrogate”.

    If This country cannot educate and feed our children, now you know why people do not have any.

    Further more Bermuda has always been unsuitable to raise children.
    Double dip Taxation , inflation without representation.
    Winner takes all, greed takes what is left ,if any.
    Bermuda was and still is always be too expensive.
    No body saw the brain drain until it became too late.
    The damage has been done .
    It is easier to fall down a flight of stairs than to climb them.
    This island has to do better with less .
    A life lived in fear of depravation and starvation is a life half lived.
    It will not take much longer for Bermuda to become another barren Easter island .

    Count our losses.

    Food markets.

      “Further more Bermuda has always been unsuitable to raise children.”

      I disagree. Even today Bermuda is one of the safest places on earth to raise a child.

      “inflation without representation”

      Governments cannot control inflation. It is a consequence of the free market economy.

      “No body saw the brain drain until it became too late.”

      I disagree. The PLP Government was warned in 2007 of the consequences of its policies. It pressed ahead anyway. It was a conscious decision.
