LARRY BURCHALL

Sun closure: Sad to see the Sun go

Larry Burchall: Sad to see the Sun go, especially the way that it has.

JetGate: Campaign finance reform is needed

Larry Burchall: In the end the whole affair is fizzling out. One Premier lost, one Attorney General resigned, two or three lawsuits initialled, and $348,000 not accounted for.

PLP had more than 5,000 days to deal with this

Larry Burchall: There is no time for political stunts and farce. On any one of those 5000 plus days the PLP were in power they could have independently ordered a Commission.

We need more cuts in personnel costs, more residents

Larry Burchall: Sometimes 'official' language conceals. Sometimes it reveals. Friday’s House of Assembly session provided an excellent example of 'official' language achieving both - at the same time, as though it was scripted for the comedy show "Yes, Minister".

Wake up, Bermuda, the love affair is over

Larry Burchall: Bermudians must grow up and admit that Bermuda’s long relationship with tourism has changed.

Our politicians right now are like packs of snarling dogs

Larry Burchall: Our politicians are like two packs of dogs at water's edge on a pink Bermuda beach, circling and snarling and growling at one another.

Cannonier saw a god in the mirror

Larry Burchall: Leaders who do not do well begin thinking, regularly, that the man in the mirror is a god. In time, some sooner than others, all these god-seeing leaders fail.

JetGate: It’s a cheap, sordid and murky affair

Larry Burchall: Have the Premier and the members of his mini-gang been straightforward with the Bermuda public whom they were elected to lead and represent? No.

Dispelling the teen pregnancy myth

Larry Burchall: "Children having children" has long been an automatic response and statement — really a cliché — used by many social commentators. That cliché is wrong. It is based on myths supported by ignorance.

Nameless, faceless ‘invisible class’ takes to the streets

Larry Burchall: There is real growth in Bermuda, but in the wrong place and amongst the wrong people. That growth is in Bermuda's 'Invisible’'Class.

Seeking overseas ‘Messiahs’ is Bermuda’s cultural trait

The fact that Dr Heatley - and all the others - were invited by us speaks to the depth of a persisting national cultural trait that says: "Trust a Messiah before you consider a Bermudian."

The tale of Dip van Winkle and his 10-year sleep

In April 2004, when I went to sleep, God was in His heaven, Satan was in his hell, "Dubya" was in the White House, and my Bermuda house was full of nice stuff that was all paid for.

Why the new Tourism Authority is making all the wrong noises

Larry Burchall: From the "noises" being made in the stream of media releases and statements, I do not see or hear the BTA recognizing Bermuda's 2014 Tourist Industry reality.

Regulators have merely given us a 12-month breather

Larry Burchall: Standard and Poor's on Tuesday affirmed their 'AA-/A-1+' sovereign ratings on the Government of Bermuda, and said the outlook remains negative.

Economy needs more people for growth

Larry Burchall: For all Bermudians, the critical thing to remember is that we should listen to everyone. However, us lot should listen even more critically to people who, because of their credentials, claim higher abilities.
