Furbert has hurt workers
Chris Furbert’s recent threats about the America’s Cup will no doubt be music to the ears of the people of both San Diego and Auckland, New Zealand — both of whom tried to have this event in their respective cities.
Indeed, much pressure was brought to bear on the organisers of America’s Cup to have the 2017 event in either San Diego or in Auckland. However, due to Grant Gibbons’ efforts, Bermuda was chosen as the destination of choice for the 2017 America’s Cup.
Bermuda had been given a golden opportunity to showcase our beautiful Island.
Because of a totally unrelated matter regarding a work permit, Mr Furbert has the unmitigated gall to threaten to disrupt this event in Bermuda. As this news has now gone around the world, perhaps the people of both San Diego and Auckland will be sending Mr Furbert a plaque thanking him for proving them right. The expression “we told you so” immediately comes to mind.
Mr Furbert, you should hang your head in shame for all the damage you have done to Bermuda’s economy and to all of the BIU membership, whom you are paid to support and help.
You have done irreparable damage to Bermuda and to the Bermudian workers, who have suffered through many years of economic decline. I only hope the BIU members will now realise that the top BIU officials, led by Mr Furbert, definitely do not have their best interests at heart.
