One thing the “he said-she said” exchanges of the last few days have proven is that many of Bermuda’s leading politicians are loathesome and inadequate.
If any exercise could be designed to create an aura of distrust around the entire political class, this is it.
Bermuda deserves better. Our country is in deep trouble, and you are fiddling away with self-absorption.
To all the politicians alleging that they have proof of past misdeeds by the other side in their pocket, here’s my advice:
- If you have evidence of illegal behaviour by a public figure, take it to the police or the press immediately. Don’t hide behind parliamentary privilege, or store it away hoping it can be used in future for political leverage.
- Only speak to each other in public, on the record or taped.
- Success is not about you ending up on top. Success is about Bermuda getting on its feet again.
