Former Progressive Labour Party Senator Davida Morris yesterday said young people want a new political party — because they’re sick of the PLP playing the racecard and censoring free speech.

Ms Morris, 28, says many people her age are extremely mistrustful of a Government she says has “saddened and embarrassed” her through recent events.

Ms Morris and blogger Jonathan Starling (the man behind the well-written, pro-PLP Catch A Fire) are starting a new blog  ‘Bermuda Jewel’ (Bermudian Joint Endeavour for Welfare, Education and Liberation) that is expected to go live next week and will allow for “free and open debate on all topics concerning Bermuda and Bermudians”.
