DR FRIDAY IS WEAK IN HIS HEAD OVER SALE OF VINCY PASSPORT — IVAN O’NEAL

One opposition party here has called on Vincentians to reject the major Opposition party New Democratic Party (NDP) who has the most realistic chance of defeating the incumbent ULP administration.

Party founder and President Ivan O’Neal does not support the NDP’s position to sell Vincentian passports to fuel economic development in the country.

In his manifesto, the party said that Vincentians should “say no to the NDP”.

“Opposition leader Friday has suggested that, if NDP get into government, they would allow Citizenship by Investment in SVG. Citizenship by Investment is the granting of citizenship status to individuals (and immediate family members) if they make a specified and quantifiable financial investment in a country.”

“Citizenship by Investment is a brainless idea and the type of thing someone would suggest who has no proper economic strategy and no idea about how to move our country forward and create prosperity for our people. It would be really bad and stupid to have Citizenship by Investment in SVG.”

“To even suggest Citizenship by Investment, shows that a person is weak in the head and has too much air between the ears and not enough grey matter. It shows that a person has no idea how to create factories, industries and thousands of new jobs.”

The party rubbished the idea stating:

“To put forward the idea of Citizenship by Investment suggests that one does not value our Vincentian heritage and Vincentian citizenship. It is a serious threat to our country that someone would sell Vincentian citizenship like selling a sack of sweet potato.”

“Citizenship by Investment is not sustainable, because once you sell off the country, nothing is left. We must protect and preserve our country for our children and grandchildren. Citizenship by Investment opens our country up to abuse. It is disgusting that Friday would suggest this. What next, selling off our children too? Clearly, Friday and the NDP are not fit to lead the country as they have no coherent and credible economic policies.”

“Granting Citizenship by Investment would entitle thousands of rich foreigners the right to live and work in SVG. They would buy thousands of acres of our land, leaving nothing for our children and grandchildren.”

He cautioned the electorate not to join the NDP:

“Beware of Friday’s and the NDP’s plan for Citizenship by Investment in SVG. It is dangerous for our people and country – very dangerous! Having Citizenship by Investment in SVG could lead to countries such as the US, UK and Canada imposing stricter visa requirements on Vincentians to enter their countries.”

“This would hurt our people and may make it harder for Vincentians to visit family in these countries or go and work and live in these countries. A number of Vincentians have reacted with disgust at Friday’s idea of selling our citizenship and national identity.” “SVG Green Party is deeply opposed to Citizenship by Investment in SVG and concerned that SVG would be besieged by even more white foreigners not paying tax and custom duties and taking our land. Do not vote for Friday’s Citizenship by Investment in SVG. It is very dangerous for our people and country.”
