I think it's a great idea. I'd love to go there. It's a beautiful place. By the way, it's in the Atlantic Ocean, not the Caribbean.

It's a British territory. As such they are entitled to the same sort of government-sponsored infrastructure that we have everywhere else in the UK. If it will help boost their economy through increased tourism and easier and cheaper trade, then it can only be a good thing.

The country is bankrupt and the Labour party is bankrupt so what he actually does is dole out my money ( tax ) to anybody but the residents of the U.K. Anybody can do that!
