Does 2-Cool Chris pay his taxes?

Christopher “2 Cool Chris” Jones

Every morning the good people of this country are entertained by a blabber mouth DJ that goes by the sobriquet “2 Cool Chris.  He has no regard for our prime minister; he has a bone in his craw for the CDC; he shows no respect for the police; he beats up on government ministers. Indeed, Chris appears to bent on talking critical crap against a hard-working government just to ensure that his show sustains it ratings and he maintains his popularity and marketability. It is all about money for Christopher Jones!

Chris makes a lot of money. He is paid the highest salary at Hott 97 and this, we understand, is a substantial sum. Chris gets a DJ gig every weekend and public holiday locally, regionally and even internationally. He promotes all kind of shows all over the place. In fact a conservative estimate of Chris’s annual income might well be over $100,000.  But, how much of this does he pay in taxes?

This is a man who makes demands on the government EVERY day. Fix the road; fix hospital; build stadium; raise salary; build back wall; hire more police; hire more teachers. He goes on and on and on! But does he pay a single cent in taxes? Does he pay his fair share?

Come on 2 Cool, tell your ardent listeners how much taxes you pay!

    Can the ULP Parliamentarians or their spouses say that they have paid their correct taxes for all income earned whilst a resident of St Vincent for the periods 1974-2012?
    Also, are they willing to have all bank accounts and tax statements inspected?

    is this the same vincy callaloo who voted 2fool chris as The Most Outstanding Media Personality in SVG for 2011??? what, did he mash your corn? i was utterly ashamed and embarrassed when it was said in that piece that Sehon Marshall and Donnie Collins lack the intelligence of a 2 cool chris! what an insult to these brilliant minds…especially to Sehon Marshall. By the way…. him paying taxes is a topic to debate? i am sure he would take the intelligence you branded him to have had, to do his paperwork as it applies! but right now, other things are important

    All the artists, dj’s and whomever who performed during the last elections for the ULP, did they pay taxes on what the received from the government? Did Skinny declare his? Much ado about nothing because 2cool is doing what he’s doing now.

    Well if its not my old scum bag pal VINCYPOWA, people make these accusations what do they know abouts his earnings or tax payments. If he pays his tax here or elsewhere.

    Did he knob you and dump you AMOR, is this spite?

    One thing you can be sure of is now VINCYPOWA is involved this young man will be held guilty until he is proved innocent.

    Did he cross you in the music business VP, are you going to inflict more spite.

  8. So Chris NOT PAYING TAXES is NOT IMPORTANT? LOL

    Only In St. Vincent and the Grenadines you are going to get these KIND of DUMBFOUNDED responses.

    I do not have to ASK which party those who are CLAIMING that a MAN who supposedly makes OVER a HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS doesn’t PAY his FAIR SHARE of TAXES is not IMPORTANT SUPPORT.

    • its not that anyone is supporting a specific party, but there are grave problems that the people in power has either turned a blind eye to, helped create them, or straight up is the problem themselves. No one is saying 2 cool has the right to get away with anything, but fair is fair, and if Gonsalves and Francis can get away with A LOT, then WTH, let Chris walk too.

    IS AMOR RODNEY A CODED NAME FOR ‘ LOVE WALTER RODNEY’, THAT SMELLS LIKE KIPPER NICKERS GONSALVES HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THIS POST.

    TELL US OLD KIPPER NICKERS, IS THAT YOU

    Remember how you peed the bed until you were 14 years old, now with that knowledge GONSALVES should know who I am.

    AMOR RODNEY, why not ask the following questions. These are the real things we all want to know about. Not the kind of questions that you ask some DJ, and it is obvious you ask them to try and hush his mouth, stop him from telling the people the truth, the truth that GONSALVES wants to stifle. Shame on you.

    1/ Ottley Hall, SIMON ANDERSON claims to have all the information about the $200 million for the OTTLEY HALL PROJECT that is only worth $16 million, he knows who embezzled or stole $184 million. Why hasn’t GONSALVES called him to the enquiry?

    2/ why did 5 separate women accuse Gonsalves of sex crimes

    3/ Where did the US$1 million in cash come from

    4/ Where did the US$s cash come from that leading ULP and family members deposited.

    5/ Where did the wealth come from that a member of parliament now has in the way of several houses, several cars, several women, several children. The from rags to riches in 11 years syndrome

    6/ Why did Gonsalves give a Diplomatic Passport to a man called Morgan, who was not a diplomat, never worked for the government or any government owned organization, the man was caught at London airport using that very same diplomatic passport whilst carrying a kilo of cocaine.

    7/ GONSALVES has said on several occasions that he is here to finish the work of MAURICE BISHOP, well according to public records in Grenada and Maryland USA, Bishop gave instructions that people should be sent to Cuba and Russia to learn how to keep two sets of books, to cook the books to enable him to commit fraud against the IMF and WORLD BANK. Has Gonsalves specifically excluded this part of Bishops work?

    8/ Who had a house built by the Buccament people not far from Harmony Hall. [I have photo’s]

  11. whether 2 cool pays his taxes should not affect his freedom of speech or rights. 2 cool does what a lot of people are afraid to do, and most of the times that includes standing up and speaking for the poorer class. If he makes well over $100k, in this economy I’m glad for him; I’m glad that someone other than Ralph Gonsalves and his family are making money. I wish 2 cool all the best with his show and I hope he gets more bold when coming to raising a lot of social and economic matter.
    @margaret London, I agree with you 100%.

    Why are we so concerned about this? Which is worse Chris not paying his taxes or the Attorney General violating the Constitution (the supreme law of SVG)? But isn’t this the same person who beats up on the NDP? Is this the same person who in 2005 was going around the country with the ULP saying “BRING BACK THE MONEY WITH THE SIGN OF THE DRAGON PAN DEY —- as part of the Ottley Hall Inquiry promotion to get people to vote against the NDP?

    I really don’t think that what he’s supposed to pay for his taxes is any business of yours. Taxes and salaries are people’s private business.
