Please send back the people who werent born nor raised on island. They dont have the same values we have for the development of this country. Its sad but the Queen sent her monies to help us yet I see all kind of people getting help except the locals. What about jobs... we need price control and housing control. Economy will take a while but it needs some type of control. People selling water for 10 for 1 GAL. (next to sunday morning well) SHAME ON YOU. they probably got that water free.

I'd be v careful what you say, Tortola is a wonderful place to live but some locals are v arrogant and expect everything without having to work for it...that said many are honourable and lovely kind people who recognize the value of "non -belongers" contributing to the islands education system, financial institution which raises so much tax, tourism,construction and hospitality industry bringing very much needed expertise and a willingness to be accountable for the money earned/spent !

But I thought the Prime Minister of Dominica advised against this? Personally I have no issue if people want to come back to their homeland, I don't see why that should be a problem
