The United Kingdom MP confirmed that despite Anguilla’s breach on the agreed UK/Anguilla borrowing guidelines, the British Government is committed to good governance and the trust established between both governments. However, the UK Government has emphasized that the obligation of freedom is the willingness to stand on your own feet. According to the UK Government, this can only be realized with immediate plans to broaden Anguilla's revenue base even in the agony of defeat.
It is the absence of such plans, including details on how existing and any further debt will be paid back over the next 3-5 years, and planned changes to Anguilla’s taxation policy, coupled with the Anguilla and UK Parliamentary elections due in 6 months, the British government cannot agree to Anguilla’s entire borrowing request.
Anguillians are still enjoying the luxury of being a tax free nation simply because their government - with the lack of finances, legislation or enforcement - is too weak to intervene in the private affairs of the people. However, immediate stringent tax measures must be implemented by our next Parliament no matter which.
Unlike Ian Donalson Mitchell's distasteful and direspectful characterization of the Honourable UK Parliamentarian, Mr. Bryant has demonstrated nothing safe professionalism. This professionalism has baffled our Visionless-Oppositions back to the drawing board… the drawing board of destructive criticism.
Destructive change we can do without.
