Casino gambling in Bermuda... zzz

The Min.Trans/Min.Tourism is already preparing Bermudians for a long wait to get the OBA's casino legislation in place.

As Jonathan Starling pointed out via twitter, we could have had a referendum on this, "ever since"!

I kind of wonder when the OBA started working on drafting the legislation. Was it the same time that they reneged on having the referendum and letting the people decide for themselves? Or was it earlier, when the strategy for killing the referendum was first mooted behind the scenes?

We'll likely never know, and meanwhile legal folks and consultants will earn good dollars for who knows how long.
