[Updated] For the second consecutive week, Police are on scene at the House of Assembly, with barriers set up outside the premises this morning [Feb 10] and a large amount of police officers on scene.

The police presence comes as the debate on the Airport Development Concession Act 2016 and the Bermuda Airport Authority Act 2016 is scheduled to take place at the House of Assembly today.

    A selfish handful of protestors' illegal actions to prevent a democraticaly elected Government representing the majority from functioning have necessitated successive weeks of police deployment at great expense to the taxpayers.

    Wasteful use of valuable time and resources that could have been better served for the benefit of the community at large, not just a smattering who are unwilling to be guided or remotely informed by facts and figures, preferring instead to be spoon fed emotive and hollow political rhetoric meant to divide for their insider elite's gain.

    Why did they not protest? I thought the protest was about proving to the Parliamentarians that the silent majority of the people were against the airport development project?
    Seems to be that it was more about preventing parliamentarians for getting into the House and when Furby realized he'd been out maneuvered he sent everyone home.
    Tsk, tsk, so the rumors were true LOL!
