The Trap

December 4th, 2012 · No Comments · Accountability, Bermuda Politics

The media is falling deeply into the “secret reports” trap.

First, it is a fact that all political parties hire strategists to advise them on tactics.  The PLP has secret reports too that would be scandalous reading.  In fact, I would go so far as to speculate that the “UBP secret report” affair was laid out in a PLP secret report.  Do you ever feel like you are being manipulated?  There is no coincidence that, despite this report apparently floating around for five years, it is being hyped now … to avoid any substantial debate on the economy, the jobs, the education system, the crime, and the fact the wheels are generally coming off the Bermuda.

The irony is not lost on me though that these days the PLP seems to have as many UBP people as the OBA does.

Second, the whole thing is a diversion.  We are two weeks away from a general election and the neither party has released a platform.  Given the scale of problems facing Bermuda, that’s scandalous!  We’ve had years of constant circus:  do you want that to continue?

Stop fighting about the past.  Stop the spin.  Tell me about the future.  Who can make our situation better?

Read this.  He does a good job of stepping outside the political spin.
