Disgruntled youth

November 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.

  1. I’m glad to see this site is getting back to activity – the more the merrier.

    Yeah, I had heard that about Young United as well. I agree with you that the youth, of both parties, are willing to assist with the more mundane organisational stuff that is necessary for the successes of a political party, but are not going to be satisfied at that alone. A token presence is not acceptable. I recognise that we may not have the same experience as the elders, but that is as much an advantage for us as it is a disadvantage. Alot of youth are apathetic towards politics largely because of consumerism but also because of the perception that the parties are only interested in a token youth presence.

    I’m hopeful that this relevation in the media means there may be a paradigm change in the offing. Either way its a foot in the door for the youth and should be used to the advantage of the youth.
