The incompetents who hired him should be out as well.Thomas resigns as BHB chief of staffcontroversy involves the management of millions of dollars of public money and the cost of people’s health care treatment.increasing specialist fees, some by 300 percent over the last several years
MP whose car was fire-bombed in a dawn raid at his house fears the attack may have been politically motivated." firebombing of M.P. Ashfield Devent ,a victim of a personal vendetta by plp zealots,for his attack on ex-convicts running for election (Ewart Brown's campaign mgr,Andre Curtis,and armed bank robber Rolf Commisiong )
Andre Curtis, the political campaign manager for former Premier Ewart Brown, helped run the Ponzi scheme, that sends yet another fraudster to prison .
plp candidates "We have a convicted armed robber and a fraudster. What's next?”area MP Ashfield DeVent
the arrogance of judge Edward Zacca “vile and racist comments” ,who called,ex civil servant LeYoni Junos ,a stupid woman,in open court ,emboldens the fascists in plp, this west Indian jackass needs to return to his banana republic
Edward Zacca ordered proceedings in his courtroom not to be recorded, despite it being standard practice in the UK.

you think you know prostitutes,but you don't know prostitutes; Wayne "Flip Flop" Furbert "whats inna for ME", besides being a travel ponzi scheme con artist is a deadbeat .."Pat Ferguson :: August 13, 2012And while at it, can someone tell me if a certain former UBP leader who crossed the floor ever paid back the 40 some thousand dollars he (allegedly ?) borrowed from the UBP? "
Fraud Cops Look at Furbert's Firm: Former UBP leader Wayne Furbert officially introduced YTB to Bermuda and is believed to the firm’s top earner on the island. He was called in to meet Fraud Unit officers, who are convinced YTB is a pyramid scam,
Ewart Brown's Stem cell Laboratories given Exemption from import duty by "Cog" & his puppet plp govt! also explains his pal,fellow liar & thief,Zane Desilva's battle with BEST,to build warehouses on protected marshland
ElectroCore Bermuda Ltd. is granted complete exemption from the payment of import duty in respect of the importation into Bermuda of any exempted goods.

Premier and Minister of Finance
Leroy “de hustling Pastor” Bean is just trying to stay on de GRAVY TRAIN! Likewise Ms Piggy aka,Cog, once having served in office for a set amount of time (2 years)she then gets a hefty pension/stipend FOR LIFE!
Leroy Bean, another plp con artist thief, as Erat Brown, Burgess and Burch! not a pastor of GOD.the same "spirit of entitlement" is responsible for Bean accepting taxpayer funds for advising a board that he sat on, was the money paid back to the Government as directed by the Premier? Or did the Deputy Premier allow him to keep it? hes branch chairman for the PLP in Hamilton Parish - Derrick Burgess is MP, he gets appointed to the BLDC and receives a gratuity of $160,000 to provide a report to Mr. Burgess and he then receives a lease that does not have to go up for tender or approval because it is one day short of 21 years! his group is named,CARTEL!
BLDC gives up on $500,000 debt claim, Fort Knox CEO Troy Symonds must be part of plp Friends & family plan. Hamilton Councillor Troy Symonds is also head of PROPERTY and BUSINESS ADVISORY for the Corp of Hamilton. And his company, Fort Knox, owes BLDC $500k in rent arrears. This is just the tip of the iceberg. .two Government entities B.L.D.C.and the Ministry of Works and Engineering where just two individuals have scammed these two entities for over a MILLION dollars!
Chickens come home to roost! No more loans are being given by the Bermuda Industrial Union Co-op Society The union is broke,after TAXPAYERS-under Erat brown & jackass deputy premur derrick burgess bailed BIU out with $8 million bailout/Pro-Active payoff
Bermuda’s Boy George, Handbag Burch, who helped Erat Brown, import,4 Chinese terrorists ILLEGALLY from Gitmo,now claims he was “left stunned by verdict”Called as a character witness for his thievish staff, while he was was Minister of Works and Engineering, who were sentenced to a total of 14 years yesterday, for stealing more than $500,000 of taxpayers’ money. nothing compared to the multi-MILLIONS looted & raped over the past 14 yrs. of plp friends & family
Whose in charge? Cog,BIU Burgess or the mob?
We can’t have one set of rules for insiders and another set of rules for everyone else... we have to question the message the Premier sent “by supporting the candidacy of one of the former BLDC official at the centre of the reported ‘misuses of public money’ – a man she ordered fired from his position as BLDC Deputy Chairman.”
Derrick Burgess was wrong to direct the BLDC to pay consultancy fees to its board members, the Public Accounts Committee has found.
PAC report criticises Minister, directors of BLDC Auditor General Heather Jacobs Matthews accused former BLDC chairman Edward Saunders and ex-deputy chairman Pastor Leroy Bean of a “fundamental conflict of interest”
the management, whole system and the way this was laid out, reeks of potential conflicts of interest! Board members are not supposed to be involved with running of the company but they do anyway .Finance Minister is a shareholder..the Premier is a shareholder..shareholders are not alerted to how the finances are being spent (who happens to be the Premier/Finance Minister running the island)
lying thief 'Derrick Burgess I’ve run hotels and a union' when did this jackass,ex doorman 'run hotels '?Burgess took issue with the Auditor General, who was sitting a few feet away from him.“She never bothered to call while writing her reports,”Ms Matthews responded by saying she was a “qualified accountant who uses professional judgement”.
Erat brown still milking the public purse through our hospital Advocacy group calls for Health Minister -Zane DeSilva-to resign
Pigs at the trough:political parasites in Los Angeles; the same political cesspool the carpetbagger Erat brown comes from & his pay-to-play pal ,now under suspension , Dr Donald Thomas ,head doctor at KEMH,with a history of scandals in his closet .LA corruption trial: billed the city for trips to far-flung places, including Beijing, Bermuda
Government health insurance funds ran a deficit of nearly $13 million in the first operational year of FutureCare
Hospital in direct competiton with charities : KEMH becoming what she described as a “for profit” institute.costs for numerous procedures have risen sharply since April 2009, with the cost of an appendectomy and two day stay at the hospital rising from $2,000 in April 2009 to $6,000 now.

one of Erat B's American pay-to-play pals? chief of staff Dr Donald Thomas has been put on administrative leave.he's the only one not grinning in the photo.Dr. Thomas gets the outrageous salary $800,000 plus hugh perks,free rent,travel etc that supplement his pay.
A surgeon has filed a writ against the Bermuda Hospitals Board over an alleged breach of contract.The writ, filed on July 2, lists Christopher Johnson as the complainant and the Bermuda Hospital Board as the defendant.
concerns were prompted by an anonymous e-mail sent to the advocacy group, and copied to The Royal Gazette, claiming to be from a group of KEMH physicians.Bermuda Hospitals Board chief of staff Donald Thomas,been suspended from a previous post, $900,000 worth of federally discounted drugs were used illegally at private health clinics.
April fool's in June?
How much did DeSilva,Minister of corruption & stupidity plp pimp-thief Zane DeSilva pay for this award? "Honorary Degree in International Commerce and Global Development in recognition of his strong leadership and many accomplishments." LOL

David Burt used his plp positon to get secret non-tendered contracts & leases, similar to those awarded to john jeffries ,zane desilva ,jane & dennis Coreia,Walton Brown,Donal Smith & other plp friends & family
Donal Smith has been appointed Deputy Mayor of Hamilton:Erat Brown's right hand man.Mayor Outerbridge will be gone within a year. Deputy mayor and developer of major hotel of city property. President of Bermuda Emissions Controls, no legal standard on emissions but every single car and bike pays this company a fee in order to get licenced. Another Erat Brown-plp friends & family scam

why Health Minister Zane DeSilva hasn’t replied to Southside scandal ?
Auditor General is investigating public housing scheme
BLDC was owed $2.4m by tenants and clients including political leaders, election candidates and prominent business figures :
Alfred Minors, who is the husband of Economy Minister Patrice Minors, and also known as Stuart Minors, was the BLDC’s Director of Finance and Project Finance.
National Security Minister Wayne Perinchief was the Deputy Speaker at the time. He was a director of a company which rented bonded warehouse space at Southside for a Cuban rum import business.

"Mr Spagnuolo is the lead architect with Toronto-based firm Carruthers Shaw and Partners [CS&P], and was involved in the police and court building project until he was terminated from it by Government in December 2008. As payment certifier, he oversaw all claims for payment.
architect, Sam Spagnuolo, alleged in court papers that the company contracted to build Hamilton's new court and police station appointed Mr Burgess's cousin and Dr Brown's half-brother as silent, non-voting partners,and that the best man at Dr Brown's wedding, Dennis Correia, was appointed as a consultant to the project"

DEVONSHIRE MARSH – UNDER THREAT: BEST presentation of "Devonshire Marsh Under Threat" Stu Hayward branded the decision "an affront to orderly development as laid out and accepted by Parliament in the Bermuda Plan 2008, and a blot on the Premier's aspirations toward good governance".
I must thank Erat the ex thief-in-charge for his rant in Cayman. Seems to have finally ignited the outrage the citizen journalists/bloggers have been writing about for over a decade. RG hired an Englishman to moderate it's web portal, Assistant Editor,Jeremy Deacon:similar to limey in Bermuda blog,proving Erat's point, the slimy limey superiority & contempt for free speech ,but the island has always been a haven for wannabe Africans,Europeans,West Indians,Americans,Canadians,etc trying to impose their cultural/ideology on the locals.That's what you have now,crabs in a barrel,a a den of vipers.

JD it's called FREEDOM OF SPEECH!
If you can't handle it then stop moderating or go and live in China.
Are you seriously threatening to limit our RIGHT to FREEDOM OF SPEECH?

Did you hear about the "Spring Uprising" in Egypt?
Journalistic integrity in Bermuda is very much on the "suspect" list - your rant makes it even more dubious."
Erat ex Thief -in charge crows in Cayman :why does the rat crawl outa his hole NOW? is it because he feels the heat from Interpol on his pal misick? or as prelude to the election? or his trip to speak In Cayman? Brown DOES NOT represent Bermuda in ANY WAY!

PLP bankrolled by billionaire Deuss," spent at least $2 million financing the PLP's entire election campaign "
no honor among thieves, the real story on John Deuss was exposed by Offshore Alert - David Marchant November 30, 1998:”' Deuss...bought' the new PLP government in Bermuda. Deuss paid off the mortgage on the party's headquarters a few years ago, appointed PLP leader and new Bermuda Premier Jennifer Smith as a director of his Bermuda bank and is widely thought to have spent at least $2 million financing the PLP's entire election campaign that culminated in the party winning power for the first time earlier this month. A reliable source also told us that, several months ago, Deuss began paying Smith $150,000 per year that is categorized as a 'clothing allowance'”

Prosecuting corruption:"Let’s face it, if Premier Cox (along with her colleagues) is willing to violate the Audit Act and thereby prevent further investigation of the unlawful payment of $30,000, what is the chance that she is going to voluntarily call for a Commission of Inquiry to investigate smelly Government contracts totaling hundreds of millions of dollars that occurred on her watch as Finance Minister?
Numerous Government capital projects over the last ten years (e.g., Berkeley Institute, Port Royal Golf Course, Heritage Wharf, the new Courthouse, TCD) have collectively resulted in cost overruns of hundreds of millions of dollars"

the "false cheques" lawsuit was a smoke screen , to cover up illegal payoffs to Landmark Lisgar, Dennis Correia, his wife Jane was a plp candidate
in spring 2008, Mr Burgess appointed a construction consultant, Dennis Correia, to assist Landmark Lisgar, since the project was proceeding slowly and experiencing problems.
"Mr Correia was the best man at (then Premier) Dr (Ewart) Brown's wedding,"
CS&P is in the process of suing Government for $1.3 million in allegedly unpaid fees in relation to the police and court project. It also claims it has not been paid $119,000 for a separate project to build Government laboratories at Marsh Folly.
Architect claims Govt paid 'inappropriate' construction expenses against advice
Liars need good memories ! at least Ms Wilson,as a lawyer ,knows better than to lie ,since the truth will emerge once PAC gets emails & documents: D Burgess & Attorney General Kim Wilson at odds
Digging deeper into this cesspit of PLP scandal:this has Erat Brown written all over it same as suspicious "bullet" fiasco.Brown or one of his synchophants put the fake cheques in the file, trying to set Brady up,he is the Bro-In-Law of Bill Zuill, the Royal Gazettes editor.Why hasn't Mr. Brady been charged with putting the fake cheques in the file? Because the Police suspect it could have easily been Erat Brown & his co conspirators planting fake evidence to set up his arch enemies: A Free press & Royal Gazettes editor Bill Zuill.
Derrick Burgess is being pressured by his own parliamentary colleagues to resign!! Burgess is too stupid to Bullshit his way out of this
when your in a hole, stop digging !! Burgess is too ignorant to write these press releases ,he has a large staff of plp propagandists writing for him ZBM says senior plp want Burgess out,since he is a liability for plp being reelected!
PAC to probe Auditor’s findings "We will call witnesses and obtain documents "
UK & their Governor has done absolutely NOTHING about the 14 years of plp corruption scandals
PLP showing signs of a Totalitarian Dictatorship
A cornered rat is a dangerous rat
1) Control of public information and opinion:
It begins with withholding information, and leads to putting out false or misleading information. A government can develop ministries of propaganda under many guises. They typically call it “public information” PLP hosts & callers control talk shows, HOTT & Magic radio stations owned by plp MP ,CITV govt TV,all of them flooding the public airwaves with propaganda 24/7
2) Usurpation of undelegated powers:
3)Subversion of internal checks and balances:
4) Infiltration and subversion of citizen groups that could be forces for reform:in Bermuda,taxpayer funded race baiting campaigns under CURB,timed to stir the pot just before an election,importing ultra left race baiting speakers
When people who try to uncover high level wrongdoing are threatened, that is a sign the system is not only riddled with corruption, but that the corruption has passed the threshold into active tyranny.
in Bermuda,arrest & imprisonment of Auditor General Larry Dennis,supression of financial records to current Auditor General Ms Matthews
6) Use of the law for competition suppression:
It begins with the dominant faction winning support by paying off their supporters and suppressing their supporters’ competitors, but leads to public officials themselves engaging in illegal activities and using the law to suppress independent competitors:
plp candidates hired & paid secret consulting fees,
Secret non-tendered contracts & leases awarded to john jeffries ,zane desilva ,jane & dennis Coreia,David Burt,Walton Brown,
7)Seeking a government monopoly on the capability and use of the Bermuda regiment, Bermuda Police & armed forces
8)Creation of a class of officials who are above the law:
This is indicated by dismissal of charges for wrongdoing against persons who are “following orders”.
9)Increasing dependency of the people on government:
The classic approach to domination of the people is to first take everything they have away from them, then make them compliant with the demands of the rulers to get anything back again.
Cox refuses to answer queries on the Auditor General's Special Report:Despite a legal opinion "Premier is under a legal obligation to order the Attorney General to disclose the documents to the Auditor General"
Auditor General was repeatedly denied access to information
Auditor General's struggle to get information on the BLDC
Unlike the previous Auditor General, who was white,and was arrested,handcuffed and JAILED In 2007 by Ewart Brown, who slandered Larry Dennis as a RACIST ,the current Auditor General Heather Jacobs Matthews is BLACK.
Auditor General issues damning report Culture of Bermuda's plp Corruption at the highest levels of government. “Misuse Of Public Funds”
This is just the TIP of the iceberg of Ewart Brown's corruption,PAY-TO-PLAY kickbacks,looting & thievery by the plp since 1998
what does it take for UK to appoint a Royal Commission of Inquiry on Ewart Brown/plp corruption,from the BHC scandal to latest Auditor General Report????.
Derrick Burgess,the ex BIU union head, anarchist racist jackass,who plp wasted more money sending him & his entourage to a Tory convention !His latest ignorance,is attacking the messenger " Ms Matthews is on a personal witch hunt" follows his attack on former Auditor General Larry Dennis 2009,calling him a racist.Both Ewart Brown & Derrick Burgess covered up their theft & incompetence, the $6.8 BIU bond was written off for taxpayer's to subsidize,it is only NOW under a black Auditor General ,the stench of their deceit,looting & thievery is being uncovered.
And there is still no right to know:despite the passing of public access to information and good governance legislation in Parliament and a commitment from Premier Paula Cox to ensure transparency and accountability

both Ewart Brown & Derrick Burgess used TAXPAYER"S money to pay THEIR legal fees !
It is always the thief who protests the loudest when caught red handed !!
Clearly Cox is"weak and hopeless" leader has no power over and is bullied by Burgess, an ignorant racist former hotel doorman. Hence the shoot the messenger response, from the JACKBOOT RACIST JACKASS Deputy Premier."It seems as if Ms Matthews is on a personal witch hunt and to suggest that any wrong doing took place is outrageous." Derrick Burgess yesterday blamed the Attorney General's Chambers for a writ directing a potential $2 million in damages to himself .Burgess desperate for damage control, appeared on ZBM's afternoon talk show and confirmed he and Dr Brown stand to gain $2 million each if their claim is successful.
Shadow Attorney General Trevor Moniz noted the stark difference in statements from Ms Cox and Mr Burgess gave in response to Mrs Matthews' two latest reports.Moniz described Ms Cox as "weak and hopeless", trying to give the impression she's in charge but powerless to improve the poor governance legacy left behind by Dr Brown.He also said there remains a backlog of reports waiting to come out of the Auditor General's office, the Heritage Wharf project, TCD, Coco Reefs and Port Royal, all corruption scandals shoved under the carpet. .

BLDC pair -chairman Edward Saunders and deputy chairman Pastor Leroy Bean-both of whom have served as PLP branch chairmen netted $160,230 acting as consultants to their own board!!BLDC KICKBACKS $160,000 in consultancy fees :"the former Chairman and the Deputy Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Bermuda Land Development Company Limited entered into a consultancy arrangement with the Company while they served on the Company’s Board. This arrangement resulted in them being paid $160,000 in consultancy fees..."To date, I have attempted to obtain information through persuasive methods. However, as explained later in this report, our access to information continues to be challenged. If this persists, I will bring the matter to the immediate attention of the House of Assembly and the public. In addition, I will recommend that those individuals who have infringed on my right to information be required to appear before the Public Accounts Committee"
Quotes from the report
* “Nevertheless, I continue to be concerned and amazed by the lack of awareness of good governance as evidenced by the subject of this report and other matters being brought to my attention.”
* “This report also highlights the challenges we face when we are denied access to information which should be made available to us in order to complete our reports.”
* “The frequency of denial of my requests suggests that there is either a fundamental misunderstanding of the role of the Auditor General or there is something to hide.”
* “The Premier/Minister of Finance is to be commended for taking prompt action in these matters once brought to her attention by the Auditor General.”
* “The key issue here is that public funds were used to initiate a private legal action which is inappropriate and a direct violation of Financial Instructions.”
* “In my opinion, to cover-up an abuse of public funds behind the cloak of ‘legal privilege’ as opined by the Attorney General is unacceptable and violates principles of good governance and transparency.”
* “This brings in question whether I as Auditor General can rely on information emanating out of Chambers and whether I have the confidence that Government officials at the most senior level will do the right thing. At this point, the answer is a resounding no.”
* “In my opinion, this entire situation is deplorable and represents a blatant disregard for the public purse and a lack of transparency and accountability at the most senior levels of Government. The question to be asked is who will be held accountable — the answer is likely to be no one Don't be fooled. The Bermuda Government continues to be wide open territory for those who are prepared to work the system for personal gain.Jonathan Smith,then chief of police,was weak,& NOW IS a PLP SENATOR & PLP CANDIDATE!

We need more leaks
October 23, 2011
I guess I will never understand the minds of some people and their way of thinking. Take for instance the story in The Royal Gazette last week about the leaked report concerning the lightening at Global House. In reading the blogs in the comment column of The Royal Gazette, there were people who were against this leaked report and felt that it was wrong. Here's where the off base thinking comes in. It was wrong to leak this report but nothing was said by these same people about it being wrong to put people's lives in jeopardy with cheap, inferior lightening at a very expensive price. Their only concern was the exposure once again of the Progressive Labour Party Government's way of "doing shady business"! When it comes to leaked reports, well, I wish someone would leak more reports on matters such as:
n The $800 million in funds that are not ready to be audited
n The real deal on the Dockyard wharf
n The Emissions Centre
n The Berkeley School fiasco
n The Uighur deal what did Bermuda get for them or who got what for them
n Why Bermuda has not had a Royal Commission of Inquiry…..
n Don't forget the numerous questionable Government contracts that have been issued to friends and family ... etc etc etc.
Leaked reports? Yes, leaked reports the more the merrier because that is the only way the populace is going to know anything about what goes on or what has gone on with the PLP Government. This Government does not know the meaning of transparency, inclusiveness, or truthfulness. You ask questions and all you get is no comment, or no answer at all. I know there are more issues that we need leaked reports on, so maybe someone can help me out here by taking up where I have left off and name other questionable and shady deals that have been conducted by Government. To the Leaker, you are a champion and a life saver, so bless your heart and let us have more! Just think, if you hadn't leaked that report, we would never have known the people working at Global House were working in an unsafe and health threatening environment. And to think, the only thing that is important to some people is the fact that this was a leaked report. Amazing!
