Too many strip clubs! Christian Council scolded over liquor license

Too many strip clubs! Christian Council scolded over liquor license

The BVI Christian Council (BVICC) has been rebuked for seemingly not doing all it could to help block government’s Liquor License Act that passed through the House of Assembly recently.
“The so-called Christian Council dropped the ball when it came to this liquor license thing. They should have come and put in their two cents’ worth. They should’ve made sure a lot of these so-called clubs and night spots were not given liquor licenses to operate,” The Hot Seat radio host Walwyn Brewley argued.

Brewley said that if he was in the House of Assembly, he would have ensured some of the bars — which he suggested were thinly-disguised strip clubs — would not be given licenses.

“Don’t give them no liquor license in this country. What they’re doing is illegal,” he argued. “All of them — strip clubs/brothels, houses of ill-repute, or whatever you want to call them — you shouldn’t be giving them no liquor license to operate in this country. That’s illegal.”

While questioning why there are so many strip clubs across the territory, Brewley also noted that as a Christian community, such activities go against the grain and teachings of the bible. “The Christian Council had a golden opportunity to go after the government and tell them ‘look’, but they didn’t do nothing,” he said.

Had they intervened, Brewley argued, they could have put some pressure on the current government and also galvanise the people to put some pressure on the government to stamp out such illicit behaviour in the society.

“They have more strip clubs in this country than you could shake a stick at right now … All of them are illegal,” Brewley stated.

The controversial Liquor License Act, which legislators passed with some amendments last week, saw lawmakers arguing for more accountability on the part of businesses after contending that the bill initially offered wide-ranging latitude for some establishments to gain licenses without the necessary controls in place.
