I believe anyone who owes government for anything, whether a hospital bill, house tax, water bill or Social Security, should not be issued ANY kind of license, permit, passport, etc. until things are made right. There are too many people who prefer to put their money into expensive cars instead of meeting their obligations, and too many students who don't have school books.
Inland Revenue was supposed to be implementing such a system. They made a big noise about it several years ago but since then there is only silence.
I recognise that some people have genuine hardships and require government assistance. In any capitalist system, some people are going to fall through the cracks. It is the obligation of the rest of us to provide for them. We already have an entity established for such mutual purposes. It is called the Government of Anguilla.
