Jekyll and Hyde Politics

“She had an evil face, smoothed by hypocrisy; but her manners were excellent.”

― Robert Louis Stevenson, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Recently it was stated that the OBA seems to operate almost like a Jekyll and Hyde character.

The rationale being that on one hand you have the Premier with his constant claims of unity, whilst OBA policy after OBA policy are used as weapons against the progress of Bermudians.

Smiling Faces

  • OCTOBER 1ST, 2014 – Minister Fahy proposed a new Work Permit Policy that included the highly controversial Bermuda Employment Visa (BEV) which would allow qualifying firms to hire non-Bermudians as 20% of their staff without having to advertise or apply for a work permit.

  • MARCH 1ST, 2014 – Minister Fahy implements a new Work Permit Policy that includes a New Business Work Permit which allows qualifying companies to receive automatic approval of an unlimited number of work permits if applied for within the first 6 months. These companies would not have to first seek qualified Bermudians first.

On May 22, 2015, Jeanne Atherden, Minister of Health, Seniors and Environment, tabled an amendment to the Health Insurance Act 1970 which proposed adopting the highly controversial USPSTF guidelines, “which recommend biennial screening for healthy, asymptomatic women aged 50 to 74 years”.

Ministerial Misogyny?

June 28, 2015 OBA Senator Michael Fahy brazenly calls the Ombudsman report as a farce whilst giving his reasons why he denied a qualified Bermudian a job in Bermuda

“…the Professional did not in my view have the requisite qualifications or experience to fulfill the role being sought by the Employer in any event.”

On Friday July 3 2015 in the HOA Premier Dunkley stood to his feet and stated openly that he fully supported Minister Fahy’s decision to deny a qualified Bermudian a job in Bermuda. This one statement helped to bring crystal clarity to the masses.

While Premier Dunkley Smiles Min. Fahy continues his mission of gentrification.

What must always be kept in mind is that not one OBA legislation policy can be brought to the light of day without the approval of Premier Dunkley. Not one OBA press statement, photo op or tweet can be done without approval of OBA leadership.

Yet Premier Dunkley still smiles for photo ops.
