Premier David Burt took aim at the island’s only daily newspaper in the House of Assembly last night, “to put the people on notice that the Royal Gazette cares more about its political mission than it does the success of the island of Bermuda”.

Speaking during the Motion to Adjourn, he said: “It is now crystal clear that the Royal Gazette has joined hands with the Opposition One Bermuda Alliance in a concerted effort to cast doubt and irreversibly tarnish this Government’s work in the diversification of this economy.”

He was speaking “specifically to the FinTech industry”.
