OPINION

Following the OBA Jetgate bread crumbs

Christopher Famous: Despite political differences, I have come to respect and somewhat admire OBA chairman Thad Hollis.

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.

It’s wrong to make PRC holders the scourge of Bermuda

Elaine Murray: It is patently unfair to have Permanent Resident Holders bear the brunt of criticism and hate lobbed at them for a condition that they did not create.


Why I’m frustrated by the ‘murder on our roads’

Jeremy Deacon on Friday lamented Bermuda's driving habits, quoting the police - "You're more than twice as likely to die on the roads as in a gang-related murder."

The 'Land Grab' Row: It’s about justice and protecting democracy

On July 4th, 2014, a motion was passed in the House of Assembly of Bermuda requesting a Commission of Inquiry into “theft of property, dispossession of property and adverse possession claims” and “recommendations for any victims of wrongful action to receive compensation and justice”. 

The Land Grab 'Row': Part of PLP’s relentless quest to regain power

When we look at what “Standing Strong for Bermudians” looked like in 2011, it is clear that this protest is not about democracy or resolution of injustice. Instead, it is about the PLP’s relentless pursuit of political power by any means necessary, even if it means having our democratically-elected Parliament …

Governor should not be calling the shots

Eron Hill: How dare the Governor have the audacity to affront democracy in such a way by denying an inquiry? It was arrogant in my humble opinion...

Get back to the House, PLP, there’s work to be done

Cole Simons: I question whose interests are really being served with the PLP's boycott of Parliament.

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.

Boys in blue lost the final but the main event is still to come

Chris Famous on Wednesday has entered World Cup withdrawal, but now has his sights on the main event that's more divisive than politics - Cup Match!

We welcome the green shoots of an economic spring

Glen Smith: Sometimes, in the spring, it's hard to see the first green shoots of what will become the summer’s abundant growth.

OBA blew its chance to right a wrong

Christopher Famous: I tip my hat to the Deputy Speaker of the House, Suzann Roberts-Holshouser, for being the only OBA MP to stand up for Bermudians and vote on the side of morality.

Why Bermuda is another world

Nandi Outerbridge: Bermudians are different. They see suffering and want to help. They feel a personal responsibility to help those in danger, or in need.

We have to protect Bermudians

Granting status to PRC holders would place them in direct competition with Bermudians for employment while many educated, talented, and capable Bermudians are unemployed.
