We support and welcome contributions, questions, comments


February 15, 2019

The word Brexit (‘Britain’s exit’ from the European Union) has been like a buzz word around although there has been far too much idle and wasted chatter, mostly uninformed and too little worthwhile discussions.

One legislator, who now obviously has the time, as much as side-lining himself, and should be playing the part of sharing and informing, raised the question in a recent sitting of the Legislative Assembly chiding the Premier (or government) for lack of update on the Brexit matter.

It should first be understood, the reasons how they go there in the first place and whether they should be there.

One reader suggested we should do what we have always held as our responsibility, to inform and ‘educate’, and said, “You should include this if you are publishing soon”.  He said this because he agreed with Saga, “is currently speaking out about the GoM being silent on the issue, and I think he’s right.”

We will publish the article as we welcome all articles, discussions, questions, on any topic that do not put us in danger of being sued for defamatory and libellous. We promise there will be no discrimination whatsoever, especially that many will tend to be political. We believe that by now, contrary to what some may even perceive, while not directly accused, we do not support any political party or individuals, but we welcome any opinion that is critical of anything that goes against or support the progress of this little island and its people.

In that case we too will promote and encourage those individuals who show that their interest is not self but truly that of the progress and viability of Montserrat. And by the way, one more correction. There is no charge for any contribution which in our discretion does not seek to promote the subscriber politically or otherwise. Then we call that advertising, which of course is what enables and pays for the service we provide.

On the Brexit issue: here is the introduction by the subscriber on the matter.

In the unlikely event of a no deal, the Brexit deal UK will leave the EU Budget in March 2019. Without further action, this would mean governments and other organisations in our Overseas Territories could lose future funding for existing projects under EU programmes. However, the Chancellor has agreed that the UK government will guarantee funding for specific EU projects. This will provide certainty for British Overseas Territories governments and participating organisations over the course of our EU exit.

You should include this if you are publishing soon. It’s a statement from the FCO published last year about a no deal Brexit. Saga is currently speaking out about the GoM being silent on the issue, and I think he’s right.
