(Opposition Leader) Marc Bean's announcement/proclamation/declaration of what he perceives as Politics 101 which is essentially that politicians in Bermuda are interested in the personal benefit they can get from Government contracts, is borderline sickening. I've been involved in the political background for over 40 years and I have known most of the politicians active during that time and I can tell Mr Bean that his philosophy might apply to him and his gang of whatever's — but if that's the way he truly feels then he should do us all a great service and go live somewhere else.
The 14-year Progressive Labour Party reign was probably the peak of alleged favouritism and alleged corruption ever seen in Bermuda. From day one, they all expected the gravy but never wanted the accountability. All of Bermuda should have their eyes wide open on this because if all we can expect from the next PLP government (I hope it never happens) is ‘the gravy train' then we all better have someplace else to go. I assume that people like Mike Scott, Kim Wilson and even Flip Flop do not share their leader's cynical view?
EYES WIDE OPEN
