So much for paying back

February 3, 2012.

Dear Sir,

Did you know that the now-departed United Bermuda Party (UBP) Government advanced to the Bermuda Hotel Association, by way of an agreement between the Department of Tourism and the Bermuda Hotel Association, an amount of $1,277,330 after the failure of the Halmar travel booking company? Did you know that this interest-free loan was supposed to have been fully repaid back to the UBP Government in 1995. Did you know this never happened!

So much for good governance under the United Bermuda Party! And, I must vote for the OBA! I don't think so!
