Barbadian Political Strategist thinks he can snatch victory from the jaws of defeat despite his track record (Follow-Up)
Hartley Henry now getting his name called correctly over in Bermuda is still spinning for the opposition UBP but it’s kind of like Linus with the Great Pumpkin in Peanuts, despite his knowing and everyone else fully aware that the UBP‘s chances are rather slender for winning Bermuda‘s next elections – he still hangs around in the pumpkin-patch known as Hamilton hoping against hope.
He said the next election would be a referendum on whether the ruling PLP “has achieved what it set out to achieve.”
Mr. Henry has been advising the UBP for the last year. Looking south for advice from political strategist is a first for the UBP, which looked to the U.S. for help during its 30 years as the ruling party. He was willing to be interviewed by the Bermuda Sun after an anonymous letter leaked to the newspaper spoke of what it said were three election losses in the Caribbean for Mr. Henry’s clients, most recently in Turks and Caicos. Mr. Henry said he was not a campaign consultant for the losing party in Turks and Caicos or in St. Lucia, although he has been a consultant in previous elections.
Henry also denied the UBP is racial and declared that new members had joined who were black but he did not qualify by either identity nor number of applicants. Isn’t that reaction kinda like when Linus is confronted about how many other people have seen the Great Pumpkin?
