  2. Joe Bloggs says:

    I very much appreciate what the St. George’s Historical Society does for Bermuda in general and the east end in particular. But borrowing money to fund them? Really?

      It is a token when you consider how much gets given to clubs, con artists and former premiers.

      • Grumble grumble you will stumble says:

        It is much smaller but very much appreciated I am sure.

    • Think again says:

      It is a grant. Where does it say borrow?

      • It’s a gift not a grant says:

        It’s OUR money not the Government’s!!!!!
