- Bermudians of All Races / Residents of Bermuda / People Who Just Care About Bermuda
Mr. Swan called the events of the last eight days since Dr. Brown's decision to allow four Guantanamo Bay detainees to resettle in Bermuda without telling his Cabinet, the Governor or UK authorities, an "international debacle".
"The motion before us continues to be a very important and serious motion before this House," he said. "I remember as a schoolboy, having somewhat of a voice, that could project quite well and carry a little bit of a tune and we used to sing a wonderful song, 'No Man is an Island'. In that regard let me say that indeed here today, part of the problem that we face here has been a result of a very few people acting on their own.
"It has plunged Bermuda into an international debacle that has damaged us internationally in many respects because we have not followed our constitution."
Mr. Swan was greeted by jeers from across the floor when he claimed his motion was never intended to oppose the PLP Government itself but the leadership of the Premier.
