    Corruption fight just got a little easier

    In the fall of 2013, the OBA Government quietly enacted the Proceeds of Crime and Related Measures Amendment Act 2013.

    This omnibus legislation, which became effective on 8 November 2013, not only greatly increases the penalties for political corruption but also greatly strengthens the ability of the police and Director of Public Prosecutions to gather evidence and recover tainted property such as...

    It made me proud to be Bermudian

    My friend and I stopped by Astwood Park for a few minutes on Good Friday to watch the kite flying action. The park was crowded with individuals and families picnicking, playing games, relaxing and of course flying kites of all shapes and sizes.

    It was a great atmosphere, everyone was happy. I got chatting with two gentlemen who were flying their beautifully designed Bermuda kites in different areas of the park. They separately told me that they come...

  • We should be given an apology

    The United States of America via the US Consul General here on the Island, (Mr Robert Settje) have been lately commenting on the pollution floating up on a few of our hundreds of beaches, claiming it’s “hospital waste amongst other heath risk particles coming from KEMH and the sewage lines of Hamilton City”.

    This has been proven to be non-harmful to human or animal life yet it’s a threat to one of the Islands main sources of income, i.e. tourism.

    How dare holier-than-thou trinity stay silent

    In the wake of the former Ombudsman’s report, “A Grave Error” (2014), those responsible for the desecration and vandalism of the old cemetery at Tucker’s Town (under the pious guise of “restoration”) have decided not to comment. They have been given every opportunity to do so by your newspaper and have (in my opinion) shown complete disrespect to your investigative reporter, to those buried in the cemetery and their descendants, and to the public at...

  • We must learn the lessons of history

    The issue of redemption is important to analyse. What does it mean? How is it achieved? What is true redemption and who are the redeemers. Without appearing overly religious, we do have biblical narratives which act as indicators. We also have long accounts of social history for those who can decipher patterns of behaviours and their resultant ends. We in Bermuda are no different from any other human situation around the world and would benefit if we open...

  • How much more must we endure?

    May I vent a little frustration about the cable provider we currently endure here in Bermuda?

    On Saturday night I got home at 10pm and immediately switched to channel 351 to catch up with the football played in England. Advertised was Saturday Preview, a programme showing the results of football played in England. Lo and behold there was a show on wine in Chile, not my beloved Premiership football.A little annoyed I switched to channel 22 ESPN, to...

  • A God-pleasing and humane solution

    I read with shock in The Royal Gazette Newspaper on April 9th, 2014 that there are 300 homeless people in Bermuda. In this modern day and time for so many to be unsheltered is a disgrace and is totally unacceptable. I am a Bermudian living between Bermuda and the United States and a retired Master of Social work of 15 years both in Bermuda and the US and there is no reason that so many people should be homeless in Bermuda with so many churches on the...

  • Don’t change for change’s sake

    Over the recent years, changing hasn’t really helped the tourism industry much (and closing down Dolphin Quest because of captured dolphins after 20 years, won’t help it either). We’re talking about the following:

    1. Bermuda used to have a Trimingham’s, a Smith’s, a Store or Reliability, a Archie Brown & Son, a popular Pirate’s Port and many other shops about.

    Charles Kirk “killed” English Sports Shop somewhat and some other...

    Disconnected

    In response to (Member of Parliament) Rolfe (Commissiong’s) letter’s veiled contempt; everything I say or write can be veiled when seen through the colouration of a jaundiced mind. Taking his points in order; He shoots my efforts in South Africa as an effort to save them from themselves, which is entirely an accusation with no reference other than his misgivings about anything I do. Here is classic example of Mr Commissiong, rather than involve and promote something which is...
