    Don't anyone dare say NDP or their supporters was behind this!

    Stop looking to cause problems!

    I'm so glad Ricky himself is smart enough to know better!

    When D Crabbe own was set on fire no one said it was VIP or their supporters!

    STOP THE NONSENSE !!

    Yes we all back different parties but at the end of the day we are all ONE!

    The back grounds of lots of these young men in the BVI are questionable. I am not buying this bull that this incident was politically motivated..
