Mr Burchall highlighted Bermudas growing GDP but warned that due to the peculiarities and uniqueness of our situation, it is not going to feel like it.
It will feel like it is dragging on and that is because our need to service our debt is increasing, increasing, increasing. Mr Burchall spoke positively about the potential economic impact of the Americas Cup but stressed that for our economy to be able to support our debt service cost, it would be crucial to increase the working population in Bermuda from 33,500 to at least 45,000.
The Bermuda Police Service confirmed that an investigation took place into the crime, but are otherwise flummoxed. Asked if the lack of funds has had any impact on the club, Mr Minors added: We are able to operate, but not in the capacity we would like to. Carlton Smith, president of Cleveland County, said: If we get the money and everything is straight then everybody is happy.
If I had the money, I would be able to pay off some bills; I have distributors I need to pay off and things like that. I will definitely need it by the end of February because we have a cash incentive programme for my club cricketers.

People in the third sector are far more productive than people in market economies.
Pro-social behavior allows you to get a bigger bang for your buck it is not unusual for the third sector to hire highly talented lawyers and accountants for free and they will work harder.
Ms Foulger told the audience: We have lots of third sector organisations in Bermuda.
In the same way that we have seen consolidations going on in the insurance industry, there is never a perfect overlap, but there is a degree.
