I can’t help but feel the question for the gaming referendum next year is a bit loaded: “Do you favour the introduction of regulated casino gaming for the purposes of creating new jobs for Bermudians and encouraging hotel development.”
As one person replied to me on my Twitter account: “if you vote no – this cardboard box will be crushed. It may or may not have a kitten in it.”
Shadow Finance Minister David Burt sent me this link: http://www.parliament.bm/uploadedFiles/Content/House_Business/Bills/Gaming%20Referendum%20Bill%202012.pdf
It is a referendum bill that the PLP introduced last year and the question is very simple: A referendum shall be held on the following question: “Should there be licensed
casino gaming in Bermuda?”.
