Neo-fascists

David Burch sounds rather, well, shall we say UBP-ish, or to put the PLP spin on it, "Draconian", in his comments on a crack down on crime.

Seems to me that he's saying he wants to 'lock us all up':

“As I stated only days ago, we have begun the process of transforming our approach to crime prevention to address this latest round of immediate challenges. We have declared an all out war against crime and criminals. And I am again putting criminals on notice that we will pursue them, apprehend them, and place them before the courts. In the coming days, weeks and months, residents will see tangible evidence that the Bermuda Police Service is unrelenting in their efforts to rid our society of crime.”

If someone in the UBP had said 'We have declared an all out war against crime and criminals. And I am again putting criminals on notice that we will pursue them, apprehend them, and place them before the courts' the PLP would have run a full page ad the next day saying 'UBP makes solemn promise to round up and execute black people'.

[Sigh]

Oh. Pardon me.

I forgot the campaign is over, hence the UBP's hardline stance can now be adopted by the party who spent 2 months vilifying them for getting tough on crime.

Neo-fascists.
