A valuable contribution

You've got to love the personal addendum that the Governor attached as a parting shot in this year's Throne Speech:

Mr. President and Members of the Senate,

Mr. Speaker and Members of the Honourable House of Assembly,

Bermuda’s greatest resource is its people, and a cohesive and fair society is essential to Bermuda’s quality of life. As your Governor I want to emphasise that this means that each of us on this island must value the contribution made by each other, regardless of race, or gender, or age, or country of origin. There is no place in the modern Bermuda for prejudice or discrimination on any grounds. All parts of this community must now move forward together. I look forward to working with the Government to that purpose.
