LITTLE HARBOUR, Jost van Dyke, VI- Mr Philiciano O. Callwood MBE aka ‘Foxy’ is 79 years old, having been born on September 27, 1938. The internationally well-known indigenous Virgin Islander, who boasts of being a seventh generation local from Jost van Dyke, says he stays far from local politics.

But in an exclusive interview with our newsroom on Sunday March 18, 2018 Mr Callwood was very candid about his views on current issues in the Virgin Islands (VI) and on Jost van Dyke (JvD).

He said “I support the government of the day, as I don’t need none of them, my cup is full and running over,” Foxy said with a big smile and his guitar in hand.

In addition, he expressed how disappointed he is with the response to JvD from the current National Democratic Party (NDP) Government after hurricanes Irma and Maria last year.

Government AWOL on JvD after hurricanes -Foxy

The popular cultural icon said, “I have not seen Dr [The hon D. Orlando] Smith over here since the hurricanes and all I have seen with my eyes they did was give us a new vehicle for the police.”

When pressed about some of the steps the Government has done in the JvD cleanup efforts, Foxy insisted, “I can only speak for me, all I saw after the hurricanes is a new vehicle, that is it for Jost van Dyke.”

When the reporter suggested that it was always felt by many that he supports the NDP, Mr Callwood perked up with full eyes wide open and responded, “no, no I support whoever is in, in fact none of them do not care about us here on Jost van Dyke…” the veteran JvD resident stated.

Foxy also mentioned again, “I personally don’t need them and the only one has made me feel like a man and give me respect was Cyril B. Romney, no one else...”

When asked if he thinks there will be a change of government come next election, Mr Callwood smiled broadly and stated, “If the people wants to continue putting up with the bullshit from this government, then it’s up to them…”

Government & Church rape JvD- Foxy

Foxy further stated that only the “Government and the Church are raping the people here on Jost van Dyke” but he did not elaborate.

He said things “are not running right” and he does not see the commitment from Government on Jost van Dyke to fully support the tourism sector.   

Mr Callwood said he will not knock his district representative Hon Melvin M. Turnbull (R2), who he has seen after the hurricanes, “because he just got there and I know politics, it’s not much he can do for us.”

The founder of Foxy’s Bar on JvD will be celebrating his 50th anniversary this coming Saturday March 24, 2018 with a big anniversary party featuring VIBE.

      Enlighten us as to how his support/or none support of Trump lessens his point of view??? People support those whose policies/support base favor them. Lets say that maybe a vast majority of his clientele are republicans, should he go against that?? SMDH.. That's why he is where he is and you are where you are......

          You have got to be joking. What has Trump done but make America a laughingstock? It seems that you don't remember that he thinks places like the BVI are shitholes... I really hope that you are joking...

          Trump is single-handedly giving permission for bigoted, rude and those ignorant of the US constitution to break and disrespect the rule of law. To him, there is no such thing as truth. He makes it up as he goes. He is the most Lying president ever! He rules in chaos and is ignorant and selfish. He has lifted the ban on trophy hunting so Rich hunters can bring back elephants and lions to hang on their walls. He wants drilling in the most rich and sensitive of marine areas, he is sabor-rattling dangerous dictators and disrespecting allies. I have never seen anyone so destructive to the world. He will not make the end of his term. MAGA is a slogan to take what you can and forget the little man. Who owns stock in the stock market? Not the little man. With a shift in regulations, one of his friends made $56 million overnight and with the new tax break, the Trump organization and family will be getting almost $1 Billion! He is corrupt and a liar!! He will go to jail.

        Yes, I am where I am. A human, humane and looking out for HUMANITY, not how I can fatten my bank account with "favour" from my clientele whilst carrying on a phony "humble man" persona. Money may make your world go round, but not mine. You, Trump, Foxy( donning his MAGA hat) casting a blind eye to the true ills of society and thinking your "views" dont affect things, are what is wrong with rhis world. Cheers.

      THEY HELPED A MAN STEAL 6 ACRES OF A FAMILY LAND...claiming long-term position when at that time he had not used the property. His parent was given permission by the now deceased owner to use the property to farm when they were alive.
      ______
      What have the "Preservation Society" done for JVD with the thousands of dollars in donations the received???

        The laws of the VI assisted the man in gaining 6 acres of land through long term possession not “position”. I could never understand why people talk in ignorance and spread propaganda. If the family of the deceased so cared they should have done something either before the man passed or directly after. Smh

        Government has nothing to do with prescription. You go through a hearing and once you have sufficient evidence you will get a judgment from the Registrar of Lands. If persons don’t like the judgment they can appeal.

    So I guess Foxy forgot when Dr Smith visited JVD after the Hurricanes in October and sat with him to talk about recovery and rebuild efforts in over there. Well suh. Ting to talk.
