Vote for the future

September 27, 2011

Dear Sir,

Please someone enlighten me. I read the same newspapers, and watch the same television, and listen to the same radio, and converse with many on the subject of politics, specifically about the Government of the day; the PLP.

We have accepted the fact that the UBP lost their way some 13 or more years ago. We can accept the inevitable election of '98 favouring the PLP. What absolutely baffles me is the fact that we have, I assume, all the same information pertaining to the past 13 years and the PLP's efforts and results and achievements, or lack thereof, and it amazes me that people can still defend them. If there are other forms of information that I am not listening to or reading or watching or have access to, please someone inform me.

Am I missing something? I would like to know what the PLP Party has positively done for the good of the people of Bermuda. Please inform me of the wonderful achievements that we have all benefited from and been blessed with that have made our lives so comforting. I would appreciate hearing of the noble, respectable, accountable, transparent and decent performances and great results we all can be so thankful for by this Government of the day, without going back 200 or 40 years and blaming the downfall of the global economy. We, for the most part, are interested in now and the future.

PLP has failed

September 28, 2011

Dear Sir,

With regards to the looming general election that seems to be in the air, I would like to ask the ruling PLP, why should Bermuda re-elect you for a fourth successive term? The fact is the PLP have sunk Bermuda to a level of debt that we have never seen in our entire history.

Crime, and in particular gun related murders are at an all-time high! Tourism continues to be in the toilet, unemployment is at an all-time record high, social issues such as the continuing black /white saga have not improved. Homelessness, poverty, and people living in despair are now all too common in Bermuda.

What sort of campaign will the PLP be running? Their overall record since coming into power in 1998 is abysmal! Will they be running the same old black/white /slavery/discrimination/back to the plantation /don't let the white man get back into power again campaign?

The fact is that if the PLP run an election campaign purely on their performance and record only they will lose heavily! And before they start shouting at the top of their lungs about the OBA being the same old white UBP, they should be looking at their own record and not at any other party or group! Bermuda must hold the PLP accountable for the state Bermuda is in! It's not about the OBA or the UBP! Bermuda, these are serious times. The PLP have had enough time in power, and they have failed miserably! If Bermuda votes for a fourth consecutive PLP Government then we get what we deserve! And the fact is we deserve a lot better that this! It's time for a new Bermuda!

(I've heard that line somewhere before!)
