"We gossip, and come to the conclusion that if we aren't smart enough to get it - they must be doing something 'bad' or illegal.... Nothing p****s of your average Brit more than someone doing well for themselves!"
In addition, the many ex-pats who work illegally (for cash), often do not consider themselves to be crooked.
But if you seem to be a success, then the envy kicks in.
As for lani's chain, they do not appeal to me, but I must give credit that where there is a Lani's, there is a lot of money been spent on the fit-out and it is not just like many, where they think a coat of paint may do.
The food, OK so it doesn't suit myself and others, but is seems that the mass of Brit tourists like it.
Lani's has got something right and good luck to him.
I do like his boat at Calero.
The Island is a very small place, but the small mindedness of many of the ex-pats, make it an even smaller place.
Out of interest, how many "major" businesses on the Island are owned by ex-pats?
I don't mean the cleaners, pool and propety maintenance, bar owner etc.
