Hurricane Irma is the strongest ever recorded storm in the Atlantic ocean and has caused widespread devastation to both infrastructure and lives across Caribbean islands.
While the American, Dutch and French governments have been laudable in their response in supporting their citizen and territories, the response of my British government has been slow, woeful and frankly embarrassing.
Each British Overseas Territory is an integral part of the United Kingdom, and the pain of these fellow citizens should not be ignored by our elected officials.
In addition to being a human catastrophe, it is a matter of national pride to ensure that the British Overseas Territories are supported in this desperate time of need.
All donations are appreciated.
