Bermuda opposition says country needs to copy CI

| 10/10/2011

(Royal Gazette): A war of words between the government and the opposition over term limits rumbled on last night. On Thursday, the One Bermuda Alliance outlined a raft of emergency measures aimed at turning the economy around, accusing government of “running out of ideas and energy”.The plan included following the lead of the Cayman Islands’ government and suspending work permit term limits for two years while a new policy is worked out. However, the Progressive Labour Party rejected the OBA plans on Friday. "Their commitment to end term limits for foreign workers would be nothing short of disastrous for the Bermudian worker. If implemented, employers at all skill levels would no longer be incentivised to hire Bermudians.”

The OBA hit back last night saying the PLP “deliberately distorted” their position on term limits.
