Jumping on the bandwagon

Building on the comments made over at A Limey in Bermuda and Vexed Bermoothes, former Premier Alex Scott’s comments requesting support despite Brown are quite ridiculous. 

After the election we will have the benefit of hindsight. We can say: ‘Well, we survived, but we must now, if we are going to be a meaningful administration, and a successful Government, we should probably rethink this issue here… Afterwards the party will conduct the postmortem and will listen to the people and will make the changes necessary.

Right.  Re-elect you and then you’ll start listening to the people.  This coming from ‘They didn’t know what they were signing’ Scott. Perhaps Mr. Scott and his successor should have spent more time actually listening to the people rather then treating them like they’re stupid?

  1. Mr Scott’s comments are even more wrongheaded when you view them in the context of the recent poll showing a majority of PLP voters still support Dr. Brown.
    If the PLP wins the election EB will not go gently into that good night and will have eliminated the biggest reason to get rid of him (the possibility of losing an election). It would be extremely unlikely that the central committee, made up of the hardcore, will oust him under those circumstances particularly when he remains popular with that slice of the community now despite the election risk.
    Voters should know what they are getting when cast their ballot. A PLP win virtually ensures Ewart Brown will continue as premier.
    If that’s what the voter wants, so be it. If not, they should think about their choice.
