“Not only America’s Cup is going on, we also have the Tall Ships. They’re going to be there as well, what they call the J-Class, which is the old classical America Cup boats.

        Onuon Juice, You must be so much fun to be around. I heard about a bunch of others that think like you. Rumour is they are often found between two cheeks and on a toilet.

        • Onion Juice says:

          Anyone who can boast that their anscestors were around during Slavery have to consider which role they played.
          The Truth is an offence but not a sin

            Was going to reply, but decided a reply to anything OJ posts is a waste of time.

      • Sheldon says:

        My apology, I hit “like” to OJ’s response in error.

      • Truth says:

        Well then go talk to his ANCESTORS, not him. Barking up the wrong tree but then again all you do is bark…non-stop.

    A great ambassador for Bermuda.

    A very diplomatic interview indeed. I note his concern about Trumps picks for the Environment that no doubt extends to the FDA and EPA.
    Time will tell…….
    I am particularly keen to see what Trump does re the MONSANTO.BAYER merger.
    The fact that 8 people are worth the same as 3 billion people on the planet and that folks are talking about the disparity is a most necessary thing. 3.1 billion people live on less that $2 dollars a day.
    All the homeless in Bermuda beg for way more than that a day here.

    Bermuda is lucky to have the standard of living we do. BUT it is all relative of course.
    In terms of taxes, the rich MUST pay a lot more to the state and that includes the wealthy in Bermuda.
    The Middle Class need some tax relief, and the poor should pay zero….
