    Thanks for your efforts William and Co..
    But if I may add……The whole PRC/Status issue is moving along at a glacial pace.

    There are currently dozens of people who have had PRC applications approved in principal for many months, yet the paperwork is not forthcoming. Why??
    The immigration department appears to be more backed up more than a portaloo at a rock festival. Whats the problem here? Are we a hick back water or are we a cutting edge entity that get things done?

    Many of these applicants are execs who are being asked to promote and sell Bermuda internationally.
    How can they, with hand on heart, say that Bermuda is an efficient domicile to work and do business with minimal red tape, when such a simple task appears to be undeliverable in a timely fashion.

    When are they going to get to the most important issue – the people who have been living here for 20+ years who have no rights in the place they call home!

    This whole thing reminds me of the equality gender issue where a man feels he is a girl inside a boys body and wants to require he can use the woman’s bathroom and government or business cant discriminate because of equal treatment.

    What if a foreign same sex transgender persons feels they are a Bermudian inside a foreign body? They are Bermudian and we shouldn’t judge them for that but provide them equal rights to realize their self.
