OPINION

Making the case for parrot fish — and those plucky Costa Ricans

Christopher Famous: We can find symbolism on our reefs: the vital need for balance.

No surprise about government pensions

Bob Stewart: The announcement by Government earlier this week to the effect that former public servants would not be compensated for the increase that has taken place in the cost of living index was not welcomed.

‘They broke it. We’re trying to fix it’

Toni Daniels: Friday night’s motion to adjourn the House of Assembly saw Finance Minister Bob Richards earn his spurs as the newly-named Deputy Premier with a vigorous defence of the Government’s economic policies.

How flood of new citizens will hurt locals

Not all drug use is abusive

Jonathan Starling: While MPs should be sober, drug tests do not test one’s current functions, only one’s past use of drugs.

OBA just can’t seem to keep promises

Eron Hill: Don’t make promises you can’t keep! Perhaps the government are getting transparent and invisible mixed up, because I don’t see the truth of JetGate being told.

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".

That feeling when a proud father sees his son graduate

Christopher Famous: On Friday, June 27th, I attended the New Testament Church of God for the graduation ceremony for the Berkeley Institute's Class of 2014.

Drug tests for MPs a gimmick

DisclosureGate, part one...

Christopher Famous: In June 2013, MP Walton Brown tabled a resolution in the House of Assembly to form an election committee with a “mandate of examining and reviewing any matter relating to elections and report its findings and recommendations to Parliament”.

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.

Born Bermudians must come first in our homeland

Eron Hill: With the greatest degree of respect, the fact of the matter is that the born Bermudian should have the right to certain things before anyone else who resides in his or her homeland.

The PLP’s malicious accusations

Bryant Trew: As long as the PLP continues to reject diversity, its only strategic option is to try to convince a segment of black voters that non-PLP supporters are a threat.

Letter: The idea for the Theatre Boycott came from my father

Rolfe Commissiong: My father was the first to propose that the Progressive Group utilize and organize a boycott of the theatres during the late 1950s.
