    The premier of a majority black country, giving a gift to a man who referred to black people as “piccaninnies with watermelon smiles.” ok

    He shouldve gave him a Gombey hat too, Bermuda shorts dont identify with ALL of Bermuda’s inhabitants !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      And Gombey hats do??

    • Cow Polly says:

      Don’t they? Funny I’ve never seen them worn by only one segment of the Bermudian population – even women are getting in on the act now. So which inhabitants are you referring to? Lizards, frogs, Cahows?

    • Build a Better Bermuda says:

      A gombey head dress is something one earns with knowledge and reverence to its history and tradition, not a gift to someone who has no respect or clue to the cultures of others. Boris is probably the worst pick for a foriegn secretary the U.K. could ever have, and the only reason he is there is because of who he knows and the whole Brexit debacle. While it seemed to have been a scheduled ‘courtesy’ visit, and frankly a waste of a gift, at least we can take solace in knowing that he would look like a complete twit if he ever tried to wear them.

    “to which Minister Johnston warmly received”?????

  4. Family Man says:

    Nice gesture but it’s time Boris put on his big boy pants.

  5. Big Head says:

    The thought of Boris in pink Bermuda shorts is not a pleasant one!

  6. Vamos says:

    Bermuda shorts aren’t offensive. Now a certain premier giving a “gombey hat”would cause a stir!
