The Bermuda Progressive Party’s Annual Delegate Conference is six weeks away.

What’s at stake is the party leadership, and the person chosen, will by extension, be named Premier.

Many PLP stalwarts, members, and party faithful have called for a change in the administration of the PLP and the direction of Bermuda.

Some suggest get Burt out, appears to be the sentiment across the island. However, the average resident has no influence on party affairs, let alone the selection of a leader.

In October, will the PLP Delegates be guided by public opinion, or will it be a case of party before country?

Party insiders say that despite the recent uproar over access to the current delegate list, the party leader David Burt, continues to conduct clandestine meetings ahead of the conference.

Our source questioned: “Is David Burt afraid of the anticipated leadership challenge expected to come from MP Curtis Dickinson? If, as it’s felt Mr. Burt has been unethical thus far, is he capable of running a fair campaign?”

Our source went on: “With so many members with positions on Government Boards, is Mr. Burt hoping that will sway votes in his favour? Can the delegates be trusted to make a decision based on principle and not a decision guided by money or blind loyalty?

Time will tell.”
