    If you go to this “Bermuda Resort”, built by non-Bermudians, designed by non-Bermudians, and forced through planning permission by bribing the government, you will be taking away from the local economy and destroying the rich diversity of the BRITISH island nation with ABSOLUTLY no connection to America. There are currently campaigners trying to force the construction to stop so that the anti-globalisation policy introduced by the government can be upheld. This is a country that doesn’t even have McDonalds, Burger King or any other international franchise. You shold probably expect to be VERY unpopular with the locals if you go there.

    That’s a little strong, Samantha… have you any evidence for your claims?

    First of all I am a born Bermudian. I feel this is a great opportunity for upcoming individuals who are getting in the hospitality field. These people have promised many things for our Bermudian people such as work and overseas training. Even though Bermuda is not associated in the franchising of Mc Donald’s, Burger king etc. there is nothing to beat a try in something Big and exciting. So please people jus give them a break and get off that globalize crap.!!!!
