The One Bermuda Alliance can’t allow the Progressive Labour Party to paint it as the white party, new leader Senator Craig Cannonier told the membership

Craig Cannonier and Michael Dunkley the leader and deputy leader

First shots over the PLP bow have been fired by the OBA:

First shot is right, this is war,a propaganda war Craig & Michael are a good team,they are not afraid to pussyfoot around plp gutter politricks !

PLP party are the biggest racist bigots in Bermuda's 400 year history. Their existence as a party depends on two things: Uneducated workers and Racial Divide

Cannonier said the PLP's success in building an emotional connection with its supporters, saying: "The PLP won a mandate to change Bermuda. Instead, after 13 years, we have division and an increased racial divide when we should have been on a pathway to healing.

"Cronyism, favouritism and nepotism have become constant practices that continue to plague our Country.

"Despite this there are people that will still vote PLP because they have a deep emotional connection with them. There are those right now that are disappointed with the PLP but will still vote for them."
