In a video posted on the One Bermuda Alliance Facebook page today, OBA Deputy Leader Leah Scott questioned Premier David Burt’s loyalty to Bermuda and Bermudians.
Deputy Leader Scott, when talking about the PLP’s Bermudians first policies, said, “including the Premier, who comes from Jamaica. Where is his loyalty?” In the conversation, the Premier’s Jamaican roots were brought up multiple times.
We can disagree about politics and policy, but, to question the Premier’s love of Bermuda and commitment to the betterment of Bermudians because of his mother’s heritage is beyond the pale.
We call on the OBA Deputy Leader to apologize and retract her comments.
