One hundred runs! Something that every cricketer dreams of getting. More so, they dream of getting those elusive 100 runs during Cup Match.
A feat very few have achieved. One hundred years of age! Ten decades on Earth, something many dream...

As we sit back and reflect on the past 12 months of Bermuda’s history, we are struck by a variety of thoughts, feelings and visions.
First, let us say thank you to all who participated in the democratic process of registering to vote and...

If one was to ask what our national sport is, the answer would vary depending who is replying. Some may say football. Some may say cricket. Others may rightly say gossiping.
Suffice it to say, there is no one...

A few weeks ago, I read something that really had me wondering if we were in some alternative universe. The headline read: “OBA’s methods for recovery more hopeless than hopeful”.
“The Leader of the Opposition must be hoping...

Any red-blooded Bermudian fancies himself as somewhat an expert when it comes to riding bikes, with many of us counting one of our key skills as being able to “take that nip”.
Roughly translated, that means finding an acute angle to weave...

On March 19, I attended the reading of the British Virgin Islands Budget 2018-19. Having just finished our own Budget session, I was very interested in witnessing their procedures.

Over the past few months, there have been some major political events happening throughout the Caribbean region.

If one was feeling adventurous, they would jump into the water on South Shore in Bermuda, point their compass due south and head out to open sea.
A mere 1,000 miles later, they would find themselves on the pristine shores of our sister...

On February 14, the front page of The Royal Gazette carried an attention-grabbing headline — “Famous: PLP must reach out to whites”.
Not quite a heart-warming Valentine’s message, yet that headline managed to attract 326...

Here in Bermuda, we have recently been experiencing the challenges that flow from trash not being collected. It is unsurprising and understandable that many, if not all of us, are upset about the trash build- up. After all, there is nothing...

Next week, on Sunday, February 18, I have been given the distinct honour and privilege of being the keynote speaker at the 54th Annual PLP Founders’ Day Banquet at the Willowbank Conference Centre.

“They say that hindsight is 20/20 and if one could turn back the hands of time, they would do everything perfectly. Perhaps that is true. However, the reality is we cannot yet turn back the hands of time, so we can only learn from our...

No free lunch. A term about public-private partnerships often echoed by Bob Richards, the former Minister of Finance under the One Bermuda Alliance government.
A term that was found to be quite true about the OBA/Aecon airport deal; a deal...

I find it interesting, yet not surprising that people would rather attack the messenger than address the message. Over the past week, Michael Dunkley, the former Premier of Bermuda, and former One Bermuda Alliance candidate Ray Charlton took to...

There is a trend of thought among some editors and writers that the average reader will not spend more than three to five minutes on an article or column; therefore, a writer must be succinct and get their message across in fewer than 700...

Often, far too often, during canvassing over the past few years when we are looking for fellow Bermudians we are finding out that they no longer reside in Bermuda.
We do not yet have exact government figures. However, by our own canvassing...

Mr Speaker, unfortunately, there are many in Bermuda who forget that this party that we represent is first and foremost a labour party. A labour party that has always advocated the betterment of all workers of Bermuda for more than 50...

Greetings to the St Paul AME family and, by extension, the entire AME family of Bermuda.
Like you, I recall kneeling at the altar of St Paul to partake in communion, learning about the blood and body of Christ that we share as brothers and...

A few weeks ago, Hurricane Irma carved its way through the northeastern Caribbean, bringing untold death and devastation to many islands. Idyllic tourist destinations such as Anguilla, Barbuda, British Virgin Islands, St Barts and St Martin were...

The best advice or suggestions usually come from those who do not occupy high office. During years of canvassing, the Progressive Labour Party received both complaints and suggestions from persons across the island. While the make-up of Bermuda’s...
