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.

Carusel is right, St Helena is in the southern Atlantic ocean, not the Caribbean. It was extensively used during the Falklands war, and the airport is actually on Ascension Island... More

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!
