Disgruntled youthNovember 21, 2008
Sounds like the PLP is beginning to run into the same speed bumps the UBP has been dealing with for years judging by the splinter group the Bermuda Sun is reporting. Several young members of the UBP have been disgruntled for a long time – not having their voices and ideas heard or actually taken seriously. Instead, being shoved into secretary roles and organizing parties to try and attract more young people to lick envelopes. I would have no problem licking envelopes if people actually took my ideas seriously. Most of today’s youth coming back from universities are more in touch with the issues facing the island – housing, job markets, cost of living etc. One would think it would be advantages to be in touch with the youth of the island. It seems that the UBP is still stuck in their ways – lots of talk of change and fresh blood, but have yet to really see anything different. Will be interesting to see how the PLP manages to bring in fresh blood from this splitting group. Maybe the UBP could learn a thing or too.
