A large thus far unanswered question that lingers and will likely make or break this initiative is how does this new group intend to differentiate themselves in a way that they can be defined as different from the incumbent and its foe? Indeed a “manifesto of equal opportunity, social justice, security and fiscal conservatism” is little different from the line these individuals toed amongst their former colleagues.
Bermuda needs something radically different. It needs a new party that won’t just preach transparency and good governance only to whistle a different tune once they get a taste of power. The very principles that a party intends to run our island by need to reverberate in the very foundation of the party itself.
