Only very rarely do Bermudians agree on anything. We prefer to divide our opinion on any issue along any available lines. Most often, the racial divide ensures that we have divergent views, but we are not opposed to splitting along economic, geographic or any other grounds, just so long as we do not share a consensus. Thus when the Bermuda Government recently took steps to solve a non-problem relating to real estate, by banning sales of property to non-Bermudians, and may have inadvertently burst the real estate bubble, half of us thought it an act of the greatest possible stupidity, and the other half applauded the fact that, as we drown, we will be taking a few foreigners with us.
