Governor Jaspert made the comment in response to a statement that Opposition legislator Julian Fraser made in the House of Assembly last December.
Fraser had said he believes the funds which are allocated to Governor Jaspert from the UK should be recorded in the territory’s budget, and should be reflected and accounted for within the BVI’s treasury.
Addressing the issue at a recent media conference, Governor Jaspert said: “In terms of the Honourable Member (Fraser) saying that it should go somewhere else, under accountability terms, it’s how it works. It’s how it works all around the world. Whenever the money is from the UK, somebody who’s directly accountable comes into my office and then it is allocated out in the most effective way.”
“I’m accountable for UK money when it comes here, so that money is channelled through me because I am responsible to the UK Parliament,” the Governor further said.
By protecting UK money from going fully under the government, Governor Augustus Jaspert do not only protect the interest of the UK Parliament - but protect the interest of all BVI citizens, as major portion of all government(s) budget is usually going out into politicians and their corrupted facilitators ("service providers") that charging multiple and triple time costs and deliver low level and very poor good and services in exchange.
He knows nothing and thinks he knows everything. That points clearly to a political career.
