    Please allow me to ask our leader weather we should expect the bv to have the same type of governance as Dominica because in Dominica people do not have Jobs and Thierry prime mimister is giving them party to drink and dance ver ottten and in the bvi our roads are at a state of declevity and our premirer is giving us party as well so I hope some one would atell me.

    something is going wrong in the british virgin islands regarding the british dependent territories and the british overseas territories. something is going wrong in the uk parliament and in buckingham palace. something has gone wrong with the relationship between the british virgin islands and the united kingdom and uk politicians. are they abusing their powers in governing the british virgin islands economy.

    This place not ready for independence if Dominica is any indication of what it will look like. I hope the people do not drink the Kool Aid on this one.

    Dominica is way better off than the bvi and that's a fact

      To I from Here, clearly you little of Dominica. What is the per capita income of Dominica? What is its average O&M budget? What is its GDP? What is its minimum wage? What is its primary economy? Why is it that most Dominicans who can leave? Why is it that Dominicans say Dominica is nice but few go back? Why are there so few flights per day into Dominica? What is Dominica’s primary economy and who is the major employer? The bottomline is a very few are doing well and most are catching hell. Stop chatting rashisness! The BVI has its problem and must and can do better but it’s head and shoulders better than Dominica. Dominica has been independent since 1981 and what is its progress? Not much.

      But why are so many Dominicans flocking coming to the Virgin Islands? Even though they have a rich economy?

      Dominica is not better off than BVI. Speak from your head and not from your behind.

    Many islands are Independent throughout the Caribbean and its people are going through so much. Persons should be greatful that the Vigin Islands is one of the many small islands that can assist the Caribbean in search for jobs for a better wage.

    Now I appreciate 'I from Dominica' and @Caribbean. We always have persons from the Caribbean and the world visiting and working in our shores. Back in the 70's, 80's etc, the people who came were so nice. Their friendly nature made you forget they were not locals. They interacted and joined into the community with love and kindness. Now, oh well, they will sleep your husband and tell you that you are not a good wife, that's why. They will call you all manner of things behind your back. Their attitude and the way they look at you makes you feel like wow, why are they here. They act unhappy and unkind and uncouth. There are a few who are the exceptions, but visitors and even newly minted belongers have to remember kindness and love and the greatest of these is love. You catch fly with honey. Who wants a covetous, sourpuss, unkind, surly, unhappy visitor or belonger in their country? No one.
