According to Wikipedia, Montserrat got clobbered by hurricane Hugo in 1989. 140 MPH winds damaged 90% of the structures on the island and killed the tourist trade.
In 1995, the Soufriere Hills volcano, which had been dormant for centuries, erupted. It covered the capitol, Plymouth, in more than 12 metres (39 ft) of mud, destroyed its airport and docking facilities, and rendered the southern half of the island uninhabitable. Half the population left the island.
Today, the population is 5,879 (down from 13,000) and there are virtually no jobs. The island is supported by the British government to the tune of 25 million pounds per year or about 4,200 pounds per inhabitant, about $6500 USD.
I imagine Gordon manages to snag some part of that.
I agree that mullings manages to snag some part of that, especially since his wife and her family are from Montserrat and that likely makes her eligible for some money, which he can take advantage of.
I've seen a variety of population numbers, from before and after the eruption, and somewhere between 4500 and 6000 for the current population is close enough I suppose. It's certainly not a place where a world renowned scientist/physicist like gordo (LOL) could keep his vast contributions to science and society (LOL LOL) hidden from the outside world.
