Is this a trend?

Yesterday I referred to reports of dissent in Turks & Caicos.

We've had them previously from Cayman.

We know dissent is widespread in Jersey.

There is concern in Guernsey. I wrote this at local request.

It's been reported in the BVI.

Is this a trend? I'm not sure I can be that confident, but it's beginning to look like it. If it is it's the sign of what might come in the UK and elsewhere, where as Will Hutton predicted on Sunday:

There has not been a gap between the rich and poor on the current scale ever in history.... It is unstable. Sooner or later, there will be popular outrage and a political response.

I think this inevitable, precisely because this divide is unsustainable. Those who think otherwise ignore the lessons of history.
