Could the UBP do something radical for the betterment of Bermuda and not challenge recently passed Minister Bascome's seat in parliament? By doing so would the UBP open the door for a rise of independents or a new party to challenge the norm and disrupt our present dichotomy? Such a move would likely give Bermudians a good benchmark of what hope there is for an alternative to rise. It would give anti-UBP individuals something other to vote for than the PLP and may well send a strong message to our present leadership that they do not actually have the support they think they do. Finally it would give the UBP an indication as to whether they should stand aside entirely for the betterment of Bermuda or whether they remain the strongest force to oppose the PLP. While such a move may not be in the best interests of the UBP it could prove to be in the best interests of Bermuda as it would provide the opportunity to spark a new political dynamic in Bermuda politics..
