It's a natural disaster. They aren't in a British territory. What makes them think they deserve more help than anyone else who is suffering these conditions? It's awful, I feel for them and everyone else in the Caribbean dealing with the aftermath of Irma, but just because you are British and have money (or American, we tend to have that same sense of entitlement) doesn't mean you are automatically removed from bad situations with the snap of your finger or by making a phone call. Doesn't work that way.
