Hyperbole of the Day

The Hyperbole of the Day award goes to PLP candidate Marc Bean, for this ridiculous statement:

Southampton West Central candidate Mr. Bean said the Opposition United Bermuda Party had a "neo-fascist agenda".

"If they have the opportunity they will lock all of us up. It's true," he said.

Hyperbole anyone?

May I suggest he look up fascism.

Fascists seek to forge a type of national unity, usually based on (but not limited to) ethnic, cultural, racial, and religious attributes.

It certainly isn't about implementing a platform of Good Governance, as the UBP have proposed, which involves fixed term elections, a Freedom of Information act, Whistleblower legislation, a non-political Attorney General, referendums if 20% of the electorate petition etc..

Engage brain before opening mouth.
