According to Vincentian-born, Retired British Royal Air Force Engineer Warrant Officer Ivan Bertie O’Neal BSc (hons), MSc, MBA, Leader of SVG Green Party, who read for his BSc (hons) degree at Oxford Brookes University, England in Accounting and Finance and Economics, competence is the greatest asset in one’s life.
Competence is having the ability to do something well and to get right first time and every time. In 1976, Warrant Officer Ivan Bertie O’Neal BSc (hons), MSc, MBA received the personal commendation of a military four-star general. That is competence.
Warrant Officer Ivan Bertie O’Neal BSc (hons), MSc, MBA, who has had a highly distinguished military service career of over 31 years in The British Royal Air Force as an Engineer, strongly contends that competence is the greatest asset in one’s life.
Warrant Officer Ivan Bertie O’Neal BSc (hons), MSc, MBA:
• did two years of compulsory military national service in The British Royal Air force for crown and country from 1958 to 1960;
• was awarded the Royal Air Force Personal Commendation of the Air Officer Commanding –In – Chief Near East Air Force in 1976;
• was awarded The Royal Air Force Meritorious Service Medal in recognition of his exemplary conduct, high personal standards and professional expertise in 1986;
• was awarded The Royal Air Force CERTIFICATE OF MERIT in recognition of his initiative and inventiveness towards the improvement of the Engineering Services of the British Royal Air Force while serving in Strike Command in 1989.
In contrast, the ULP regime’s financial strategy for SVG is as clear as mud - giving away more revenue to the Super-rich White Migrants than SVG receives.
The Millionaires and The Billionaires in Mustique and Canouan and the dirty dog Taiwan get hundreds of millions of dollars annually in tax exemption from the ULP Regime.
The financial analysis given shows that the Super-rich White Migrant Millionaires and Billionaires of Mustique and Canouan and Taiwan are the beneficiaries of the resources of SVG.

SVG Green Party very strongly contends that the Mustique Act NO 48 of 2002 is unconstitutional and in breach of Section 13 of the SVG Constitution. Section 13 states that no law shall make any provision that is discriminatory either of itself or in its effect.
How much longer can the Black Poor and Powerless Indigenous Population of SVG live in deep poverty and destitution and go without free, high-quality education from Pre-School to our own Science and Technology University. Our children, and the future generations of SVG, are being sacrificed to support the Mustique Act No. 48 of 2002.
