The non-payment of tax by white migrants is having a serious adverse effect on the education of children in SVG

According to the Vincentian newspaper of 15 November 2019, the principal of Questelles government school gave students a letter to give to their parents, in which it said that students should not return for classes until Monday (of this week).

It is believed that there is a very serious rat problem at the school. In 2018, a school in West Kingstown was closed, because the toilet facilities were not functioning.

The Leader of SVG Green Party, Warrant Officer Ivan Bertie O’Neal BSc (hons), MSc, MBA, would like to know if there is a rat problem in the white enclaves of Mustique and Canouan that is adversely affecting tourism.

Are the super-rich of Mustque and Canouan having to close their tourist facilities because of rats and telling tourists to go away and not return until the rat problem is fixed?

A major problem in SVG is the very poor quality of education. In 2018, hundreds of school children were sent home from schools, because the toilets were not functioning and the problem was seen as a major health risk to the school children.

The super-rich white migrants of Mustique and Canouan are not paying tax to the SVG Treasury? All these people in Mustique and Canouan are parasites and scroungers and killing the education of SVG children. If they paid tax, all schools in SVG could be in good condition.

According to Warrant Officer Ivan Bertie O’Neal, there is no net benefit financially to SVG from the presence of the Super-rich, White Migrants in Mustique and Canuoan. We would be much better off without them.

These parasites and scroungers in Mustique and Canouan should move out of our country; they are an enemy of the people and a substantial threat to the future opportunities of our children and grandchildren.

Free, high-quality education from pre-school to our own science and technology university must be our number one priority.

To get the best out of their future, children in SVG should be given a world-class education from pre-school to university. However, by not investing much money at all in to education, the ULP regime is seriously limiting the job prospects and earning capacity of Vincentian children when they leave school. They will have fewer opportunities if they leave school with fewer qualifications.

It is very greedy and heartless that the super-rich, white migrants in Mustique and Canouan and the dirty dog Taiwan happily watch Vincentian children’s education suffer and still continue to not pay tax and customs duty. These people truly have no soul and do not care. As long as they can make millions in profit and live an extravagant, wealthy lifestyle, then they are happy. They have absolutely no care whatsoever about the education of Vincentian children.

One day we will see the departure of the white migrants Parasites of Mustique and Canouan and a fiscal surplus in SVG Treasury. School closures because of rats will be a thing of the past.
