Welcome back Limey

After a long hiatus, Limey in Bermuda has returned.  Welcome back Phil.

Interestingly, though unsurprisingly, after the large amount of turmoil he went through with his comments prior to his sabbatical, he has this time returned without comments.

Having recently witnessed a surge in readership with comments and threads going off into nowhere, I can understand the logic and have even contemplated it myself. 

Given Limey in Bermuda’s return, I can’t say I’d be surprised to see comments meant for his site (much like those meant for Politics.bm) spilling over here.  So, while I’m not interested in policing my site to the same degree as Phil once policed his, I’m also not interested in spending a great deal of my time ensuring that I’m not held liable for what people say in the comments. 

So, I’ll remind everyone to keep it civil and non-personal.  Try to stay on the topic and don’t go off on tangents attempting to discuss things that are better off being posted on the forums.  If so, I’m happy to keep the comments going.  Otherwise, I have little issue with taking the same tack as Limey in Bermuda and Politics.bm in going comment-less and relying on trackbacks between blogs for discussion.

  1. Yay! Welcome back Limey.
    Right on time to be part of the Silly Season.
    Somehow i knew this would happen!

  2. It’s great to have a voice of sober thought back on the blogosphere (however archaic that may sound.)

  3. phil is a smart guy but this statement is a bit much: “As I am not yet a Bermudian, I cannot vote in the upcoming election. However, I can attempt to influence public opinion through my writing, and I feel that I have an obligation to do so. At least if the current government is returned to office I will be able to say that I did my best to prevent it.”
    i think he should move to south africa next and work to unseat the ANC as well – and then maybe to germany to get the nazi party back in power and then on to Russia to get the communists back in – that’s how ridiculous this statement of his sounds.
    limey seems to have found himself in the middle of a long long standing cold war meets civil war meets race dispute – much like the US in iraq and vietnam – and much like the brits in ireland up until recently – longstanding feuds and metaphorical landmines abound and appear confusing and explode with a viciousness that may or may not have anything to do with him personally – but sadly – once your hat is in the ring – many feel that all gloves are off due to the past – i suggest that he watch
    The Wind that Shakes the Barley and Braveheart to see how many in bda
    view past injustices

  4. Ah…. looks like Limey has them worried already. Glad to have him back.
    Vanz certainly has an interesting take on how this election will go….

  5. Vanz,
    I’m going to remind you that this site is not to be used to respond to posts on the sites of others. If you want to respond to Phils remarks, start your own blog and submit a trackback.
    Also, have some respect for the fact that he is married to a Bermudian and the father of a Bermudian which should at least give him some rights with regards to caring about the island his son is to grow up in.

  6. dp, i only responded to his calling himself a non bermudian and non voter – i wasn’t trying to be rude – i don’t know him from adam so i definitely don’t know his personal life -and also – you started a welcome back limey thread – how is my post not in line w/ that?
    and SLOWHAND, as far as limey having “them” scared in the words if ODB, ni**a please

  7. Vanz,
    Point taken and sorry if I jumped the gun.
    Just want to be clear that I don’t want my site to become the feedback engine for Limey in Bermuda as I just don’t have the time in a day to handle that.

  8. Ah!! Limey…its GREAT to have a little Sulphuric acid eating away at the limestone of Bermuda.

  9. i thought that limey was back but after reading his first few posts it’s obvious that Phil Wells aka Limey is a front C. Dunleavy from Politics.bm –
    Just look at the limey in bermuda posts from yesterday:

    The Premier’s speech at the PLP banquet on Saturday evening used the word “stolen” in relation to the BHC dossier 13 times. The last I heard, however, it had still not been established whether the dossier was actually stolen or whether the source of the leak legitimately had access to it.
    Why the Premier should address the BHC allegations

    In his speech at the PLP banquet on Friday evening, Premier Ewart Brown spoke candidly about his refusal to answer any of the allegations in the leaked BHC dossier.
    One reason to vote UBP

    The UBP have been critical of the Government’s recent legislation that purports to crack down on fronting, but actually discriminates against Bermudians married to non-Bermudians

    what a good friend phil must be to act as a front for his buddy christian seeing as chris’s job prevents him from blogging anymore.
