    where will they be banking? will Island banks now accept this business or risk is still too high?

    • Reality Cheque says:

      How many locals were hired? How much office space have they rented?
      Been here since Jan 2018? How much have they contributed to our economy since then?

  4. Ringmaster says:

    Looks like the PLP are increasing people on work permits but not jobs for Bermudians. Rerun of the first PLP Government – import expats and displace Bermudians. Where’s the outrage?
