Why the Mustique Act No 48 of 2002 could never be accepted

According to the Leader of SVG Green Party, Vincentian-Born Retired British Royal Air Force Engineer Warrant Officer Ivan Bertie O’Neal BSc (hons), MSc, MBA, the White Migrants’ “Mustique Act No 48 of 2002” could never be accepted, because it is in breach of Section 13 of the SVG 1979 Constitution.

More importantly, there is no net benefit to SVG from the White Migrants’ demand for special treatment of exemption from tax and Customs Duty. The Black Poor and Powerless indigenous population is forced to pay Tax and Customs Duty, but the White Migrants are demanding special treatment. They want to operate like parasites, sucking the blood of the Indigenous Black population and live in segregated properties.

These White Migrants are not handcuffed to SVG. If the White Migrants in Mustique and Canouan do not want to pay tax and Customs duty to the SVG Treasury, then the White Migrants should pack their Bags and go back to where they come from.

Singapore is a World Bank success story with one of the highest standards of living in the world. Singapore is a highly multi-racial society; there are no White Enclaves in Singapore. Why do we have White Enclaves in Mustique in this day and age, dictating to the Black Poor and Powerless Indigenous Population that they will not pay Tax and Customs duty?

The fundamental public policies guiding Singapore’s social and economic growth is based on free, High Quality Education from Pre-School to Singapore Science and Technology Universities, driving a knowledge-based economy coupled with intelligent monetary and fiscal policies.

After, forty one years of independence, SVG has not been able to create one year of fiscal surplus. This is mind-boggling. Why in the name of prosperity do we still cling to White Enclaves in Mustique?

The writing is on the wall for the Mustique Act No 48 of 2002. It will be abolished. We live in an age of equality and human rights. The Black Poor and Powerless Indigenous Population in SVG must not be made subordinate to the White Migrants in Mustique and Canouan.

They managed to pull down the stupid Berlin Wall in Germany. Equally so, the stupid Mustique Act No 48 of 2002 in SVG must be pulled down to give way to equality and Human Rights.

Warrant Officer Ivan Bertie O’Neal BSc (hons), MSc, MBA who was awarded the British Royal Air Force “MERITORIUS SERVICE MEDAL IN 1985” in recognition of his Exemplary Conduct, High Personal Standards and Professional Expertise very strongly contends that we must protect and preserve our country for the next generations of Vincentians and not be swamped by White Migrants.

It is very greedy and heartless that the super-rich, white migrants in Mustique and Canouan 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 migrant Parasites of Mustique and Canouan and a fiscal surplus in the SVG Treasury. This will help our country move forward.
