Via Ed, the Bermuda Parliament is hoppin’ mad over the Gitmo alumni reunion on their island:
Breaking News: UBP proposes motion of no confidence
The United Bermuda Party today moved for a motion of no confidence against the Government led by Premier Ewart Brown.
Opposition leader Kim Swan proposed the motion in the House of Assembly this morning.
“This is not just about Uighurs in Bermuda, though that issue typifies a style of leadership that is reckless, autocratic and conducted with no sense of accountability to the people or, indeed, to Bermuda’s Constitution.”
Britain‘s Foreign Office is also telling Ewart Brown that he had no right to agree to take Uighur inmates without consulting London.
The decision to move the Uighurs to Bermuda is the Obama administration’s blunder that appears to have PO’d the most people, at least so far:
- The Chinese, who want them back
- The Brits, who were not consulted even when Bermuda’s part of the Commonwealth and Britain is responsible for its security
- The Governor of Bermuda, who was told on Thursday night – when they were on their way
- The people of the Bermuda, and now the opposition’s upcoming vote of no confidence
Did I leave anyone out?
Where’s that overload button when you need it?
Pun on the post title? yes. You say Uighur, I say weegur.
