Burch’s issues about more than the Governor
In last Saturday’s newspaper, you ran the following online story: “Burch wants Governor Cup Match dismissal”.
“A controversial government minister told MPs last night he had refused to repair a wall at a Cup Match venue unless the club agreed to not invite the Governor to present the trophy. Lieutenant-Colonel David Burch told the House of Assembly...”
We online subscribers were not allowed to post our comments concerning this story. Why?
In today’s newspaper, your front-page picture was labelled “Wall of contention”. On page 3, the story is headlined “Langton Hill: Governor will follow Somerset Cricket Club’s wishes”.
The story here is not really about the Governor; it’s about the “wall of contention”.
My first question would be: what does this wall have to do with Colonel Burch and why would he be interested in fixing it? Only if he is granted a favour. This sounds and smells like nothing less than more corruption.
My second question is: is this wall on private property or government land? This would help immensely to settle any confusion the reader of the esteemed newspaper may have.
So, Mr Editor, can you please do we the citizens of Bermuda a favour and get an investigative journalist to look into this in more depth, rather than trying to hide the story on page 3?
