Dear Editor: Politicians believe that they know better than the average Joe. It is almost fatal for an opposition party to present a package of policies, programmes and projects without consulting the people in whose name they intend to act.
It is not surprising that the NDP has had a very difficult time and in the later stages of the campaign become even more reticent about some of their key policy proposals inclusive of switching ties from Taiwan to mainland China.
However, as for me, I am particularly interested in the NDP’s plan to sell passports as part of its Citizenship by Investment programme. It seems there is no convincing the NDP how wrong and unpatriotic this move will be, so like granny used to say, if you can’t beat them, join them.
Therefore, I agree NDP. Let us sell our Vincy passports but I want to be empowered to sell my own. Why should you, your lawyer friends and agents based overseas profit and I can’t? If I can make a good USD200,000 from my passport that will set me up for life.
If the NDP is really concerned about the poor as they claim, don’t promise us, trickle down prosperity. We or should I say, I want trickle up prosperity. Let me sell my own passport to the Chinese and you have my vote.
I ain’t too concerned with that Madison square garden up Sion Hill. I want to build a nice decent house and I will start a little side hustle with the balance of funds. I ain’t asking for much.
