If one was feeling adventurous, they would jump into the water on South Shore in Bermuda, point their compass due south and head out to open sea.
A mere 1,000 miles later, they would find themselves on the pristine shores of our sister...

Howard “Hubby” Charles, a man who was born, bred and was lifelong resident of our beloved parish of Devonshire.
For the past few days, I have been wondering how best to remember my dear cousin — dare I say my dear double cousin — “Hubby”...

On February 14, the front page of The Royal Gazette carried an attention-grabbing headline — “Famous: PLP must reach out to whites”.
Not quite a heart-warming Valentine’s message, yet that headline managed to attract 326...

Here in Bermuda, we have recently been experiencing the challenges that flow from trash not being collected. It is unsurprising and understandable that many, if not all of us, are upset about the trash build- up. After all, there is nothing...

Next week, on Sunday, February 18, I have been given the distinct honour and privilege of being the keynote speaker at the 54th Annual PLP Founders’ Day Banquet at the Willowbank Conference Centre.
To be completely honest, I did not...

“They say that hindsight is 20/20 and if one could turn back the hands of time, they would do everything perfectly. Perhaps that is true. However, the reality is we cannot yet turn back the hands of time, so we can only learn from our...

No free lunch. A term about public-private partnerships often echoed by Bob Richards, the former Minister of Finance under the One Bermuda Alliance government.
A term that was found to be quite true about the OBA/Aecon airport deal; a deal...

I find it interesting, yet not surprising that people would rather attack the messenger than address the message. Over the past week, Michael Dunkley, the former Premier of Bermuda, and former One Bermuda Alliance candidate Ray Charlton took to...

There is a trend of thought among some editors and writers that the average reader will not spend more than three to five minutes on an article or column; therefore, a writer must be succinct and get their message across in fewer than 700...

Often, far too often, during canvassing over the past few years when we are looking for fellow Bermudians we are finding out that they no longer reside in Bermuda.
We do not yet have exact government figures. However, by our own canvassing...

Mr Speaker, unfortunately, there are many in Bermuda who forget that this party that we represent is first and foremost a labour party. A labour party that has always advocated the betterment of all workers of Bermuda for more than 50...

Greetings to the St Paul AME family and, by extension, the entire AME family of Bermuda.
Like you, I recall kneeling at the altar of St Paul to partake in communion, learning about the blood and body of Christ that we share as brothers and...

A few weeks ago, Hurricane Irma carved its way through the northeastern Caribbean, bringing untold death and devastation to many islands. Idyllic tourist destinations such as Anguilla, Barbuda, British Virgin Islands, St Barts and St Martin were...

The best advice or suggestions usually come from those who do not occupy high office. During years of canvassing, the Progressive Labour Party received both complaints and suggestions from persons across the island. While the make-up of Bermuda’s...

“Altruism or selflessness is the principle or practice of concern for the welfare of others”

A few months ago I was invited to the Association of Bermuda International Companies Education Awards function, celebrating multitudes of Bermudians who had received scholarships over many years. As I looked around the room, I saw Bermudians of...

“Even Ray Charles can see what is going on.”
A common saying in reference to when things are blatantly clear. If anyone has any doubts that an election is near, they would need to look at a few key indicators as of late.

Over the years I have seen a lot of interesting things on the canvassing trail across every parish in Bermuda. I have witnessed the never-ending hospitality and generosity of Bermudians. And I have spoken with some of our living legends and met...

A few days ago, I had a startling conversation with someone on Facebook. Such conversations themselves are not surprising, as thousands of Bermudians have them daily. However, something that the person stated struck a chord deep within...

Julia van Beelen, aka JVB, and I started talking online about six years ago before the 2012 General Election. Needless to say, we, along with a select group of politics junkies, often were in “spirited” online debates that seemingly...
