As many know, I live in this constituency. In the last week, I have been canvassed by the PLP candidate, Mr. Weeks and his helpers (Jamahl Simmons, Dr. Brown and two others whose names I did not catch) and the UBP candidate, Mr Young (joined by Mrs. Atherden, Kim Swan and Tim, a reporter from the RG). I’ll admit it, I was kinda shocked as I was not seen by either camps in the 2007 election. Added to the fact that this is a self-proclaimed PLP stronghold, it was interesting the effort being taken. But how encouraging. It shows that neither side is taking this placement for granted. I think that has a lot to do with the current, shall we say, disillusionment many in Bermuda have for the Government, both the majority and Opposition. People are frustrated (yes, still). And frustrations lead to change. Well, they can. Bermudians are known for their ability to accept things with a rather laidback attitude and their penchant to totally ascribe to the “out of sight, out of mind” mentality. So it’s possible nothing will change, but I’m hoping it does. Whether it is through a change of Government or the current Government changing its ways or even, through a “New” party (this concept has been thrown around a lot online lately). But however it happens, it is well overdue. And if this is a sign of things to come, can I just say… Yay!
