He'd be kept in the lap of luxury at the taxpayers' expense whilst the torturous process of appeals her, there & everywhere went on.

Bermuda has granted permanent residency to Britons living on the island since 1989, the couple missed the cut-off point by just two years.

In 2010, the Government announced it would make it harder to gain and renew work permits in a bid to boost employment among citizens of the island.

You don't expect Camerloon and Co to introduce similar laws in the UK do you?

It's not too unusual for this sort of thing to happen. I lived and worked in a British Colony for the local government, knowing that if my employment contract ended I had no rights of residency, even though my child was born there. It did end, and we left, no questions asked.

So any specialist offered a job there should demand a VERY high salary. If they won't pay and can't get the specialists they need - tough sh*t. But we should do the same with Bermudans here.

BTW, as a colony, how much a year do they get from us?

I can report the same is true of the Caymans. They simply don't care about quality if it is at the price of employing people who might disagree with the local Ruling Families.

I thought they had similar rules regarding residency in the Channel Islands, for the 'affordable' housing anyway - non-natives need a licence/work-permit to have access to the cheaper housing.

No but it would be nice to dream they might.

Yes, they do, and despite that a fair number of undesirables manage to beat the system.

Bermuda will probably be a little Jamaica shortly.
