    Now tell us how much the staff are being paid

    • Why are you and some others so worried about what people are being paid? If you want to ask appropriate questions and hope to get the answer to ? (1) What was Dr. “B” and side kick Col. paid for you know what? (2) Also, how much was wasted by, (you know who) while they held the reins in their hands for so many years? Inquisitive minds would just love to know :-(

    As a 9-year expat – the response to hurricanes here is unbelievable. Hard to believe we’ve had two in 6 days, you’d never know it!

    Congratulations Bermuda!
