VINTAGE INSURANCE CELEBRITY TV INTERVIEW WITH THE LATE GREAT IAN BOYNE – 1988

Dr. McAllister has authored several books including, “Young Consumer Companion”, “You’ve Got All it Takes to Succeed”, “Winning the War? – Consumer Survival in a Free Market Economy”, and “Put Him Back… America!”
Dr. McAllister, aka, “Uncle Godfrey” is an accredited Children Speaker. He hosted the popular Jamaican radio program – “The Children’s Bible Club”. He hosted the CVM television series, “A God Pickney Dem”, inspired by the late Art Linkletter’s “Kids Say the Darndest Things”. He has addressed hundreds of Children’s audiences over a period of about ten years.
Inspired by Ralph Nader, Dr. McAllister has spearheaded the Consumer Advocacy movement in Jamaica for more than five years through his organization, United Consumers In Action (UCIA). During this time he investigated over 3000 Consumer complaints with a 96% resolution rate, without once going to Court. Paradoxically, his most famous case involved Courts Jamaica – a case that was settled in favor of the Consumer, and one in which Courts Jamaica became an ally.
Arising from his Consumer Advocacy reputation, the Most Hon. Hon. Edward P. G. Seaga, Leader of the Jamaica Labor Party in 1997, invited Dr. McAllister to contest one of the only two unassigned Constituencies, a mere 3 months before the date of the election. Because it was a “garrison” Constituency run by Dr. Peter Phillips, the current Leader of the People’s National Party, it was impossible for Dr. McAllister to win the seat. However, he performed so well that he was appointed to the Shadow Cabinet in the country’s Opposition JLP.

Before migrating to the USA Dr. McAllister was appointed a Supreme Court Mediator, and assisted in the supervision of junior lower court Mediator trainees.
