Way to go Irving, foist another one of your 'liabilities' onto the taxpayer.

Selling the railway ties for years in your propaganda rags, no coverage of the rapidly disintegrating historical monument - making untold millions on gassing up the truckers who took over the freight.

Now in order to not let the former crack-den / fire-trap fall to the ground, we've got to move our most profitable industry under your control?

That Nieuwe Braunschweiggers will cheer as the biggest public menace finally clears up its mess (on our dollar, in effect) is a tribute to the continued success of big-buck, corporate-controlled media.

It's pretty impressive how these Bermudans continue to get away with it.
