Let me categorically state here that I, though Anguillian to the bone, fully supported the actions taken by ST. Martin/St.Maarten.
As a nation, we urgently need to recognize our legal/constitutional status. Failure to accept will continue this trend of embarrassment.
We (European Overseas Territories), are nothing but Europeans in the Caribbean. European laws apply; except only for convenience. Have you realized yet that our sustainability is dependent on St. Martin’s/St. Maarten’s courtesies?
You can twist this and turn this in any direction – it’s fact. Tell the authorities to stop their bull-shit. If there were ever three nations that needed no restrictions on its nationals freedom of movement and work… it’s Anguilla, St. Martin and St. Maarten – none!
I seriously support St. Martin’s/St. Maarten’s Actions.
We better wake up!
