ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – The perception that 1st district representative Andrew Fahie had a hand in former 8th District representative Dancia Penn’s defeat at the November 7, 2011 poll is utter rubbish to the “tenth degree”.

In an exclusive interview with Virgin Islands News Online, Hon. Fahie acknowledged that he has heard "bits and pieces" but pointed out, “No matter how I turn it, it doesn’t make any sense. It’s utter rubbish!”

Penn, who was the incumbent 8th district representative going into the 2011 general election, lost to the National Democratic Party (NDP) candidate and newcomer Marlon Penn by 101 votes.

However, Hon. Fahie was blamed for her demise, because some individuals believed he encouraged Independent candidate Bevis Sylvester to run so that he could “split the votes”. In the end, Sylvester secured 112 votes.

Against this backdrop, Hon. Fahie told this news agency that such theories are not surprising after an election. “Whenever one loses if it’s a game in sports or a political election, there is always going to be blame whether legitimately or not. I don’t worry about that if it is being said, no one has told me so formally. I have heard bits and pieces but that is not my focus. I always tell the young people this; I don’t let people’s opinion of me become my reality. I would not do anything to destroy my party,” he bluntly stated.

According to him, he has always been dedicated to the Virgin Islands Party (VIP). “...the statistics would show, not the gossip, the statistics will show that we are one of the only districts that brought in the VIP At Large in the top four positions. That does not represent that the people of the first district and their representative were disloyal. If you’re not preaching what you’re living, it would reflect in the votes,” Hon. Fahie added.

As he had mentioned in post election interviews, the 1st district rep reiterated that the VIP members including himself would have to “look inside and see how we can improve. Each one of us made mistakes we have to correct. So I am not going to blame anyone for what happened to me”.

“We have to regroup, we have to restructure. We have to appeal to a cross section of the populace especially the youth, and we have to do a lot of work. Anybody in my party not focusing on that is no true to themselves, not staying true to the cause or making sure that we improve the VIP. So I am not going to lose focus on them [the youth] at all,” the 1st district representative said.

        Although I am proud NDP I loved Fahie as a Minister of Education.He was the only VIP Minister that worked for the people. I will always remember and cheerish his efforts especially the powerschool and getting our children at ESH off the streets at lunch time. So ayo take it easy on Fahie.

If the VIP aint want Fahie God will never refuse him so you can keep Alvin and his low morals.

      Speak for yourself. We in the 1st district trust and love Fahie and most of the Territory trust and love Fahie because he worked for all during the past 4yrs despite the critics. The VIP main reasons for failure can be summed up in two words: Ralph & Fraser. Poor leadership and a narrow minded, selfish Minister of C&W. Only the VIP can't understand this. Ayo keep off of Fahie!

I was expecting to read the part in the article which says there is no truth to the alligations. If it is a rumor then let it die a natrual death. Why is it necessary to bring it to this forum three weeks after the lection is over? This brings to mind the old saying, "guilty conscious needs no accuser".

      @wait: quote, "Why is it necessary to bring it to this forum", don't blame Fahie for answering a question. I am NDP, all the way, but in Fahie's defense, no matter how much time pass after the election, if he is to be asked a question, he simply will answer, so why accuse him of bringing things up three weeks after the election??? Some of you just want to jump on here talking nonsense and wouldn't read carefully b4 you blog. Sorry your expectation wasn't meet in Fahie's answer, but what he is trying to say is that not every accusation requires an explaination and diplomatically saying the accusation is not worth commenting on.

    This man must be stopped. He set out to destroy every Member of the Party he couldnt control. He never showed up in the 8th District for nothing. Not the Launch, nor any of the Raleys. Of course he put up Bevis to run against Dancia. But Dancia needs to speak up for herself, and that is the problem, they continue to let him get away with everything. Se what he did in the 4th District. He put up Collin Scatliffe to run agains Vincent, and actively campaigned against Vincent. Again, Vincent needs to speak up for himself. What did he do in the 2nd District, he groomed Cline for years before putting him up to run against Alvin. Those many contracts he give to Cline amounting to some $700,000 were not for nothing. He never showed up in the 3rd District for nothing. Not the Launch, not for the General Meeting before that, not for any of the Raleys. He was in the 5th bigging up the Candidate there, and likewise the Candidate was bigging hime up at his launch. This man had it all figured out how he and 3 of the At Large (u know who they are if you been to any of the Raleys), the Member for the 5th, his plants in the 2nd, and 8th, along with the Members of the PPA (which he created) were supposed to be King Makers on Election Night. But it backfired, because they all lost. God dont like ugly. The VIP is going no where with this demon.

    Andrew, you should be ashamed of yourself. All you have done is proven to the people of the BVI that you cannot be trusted. I simply do not understand why the people of the 1st district returned you to the seat. The whole Territory is aware that you put Bevis to run to pull votes from Dancia, Colin to pull votes from Doc., and you wanted that rude young man in the second district to beat Alvin. Your own party members talking about your untrustworthy behaviour. "Want ALL, Get NONE." You contributed heavily to your party losing, and if you know it will further destroy your career to speak the truth, then SHUT UP!!!. You CANNOT blame anyone for what happened to you, because YOU were the one doing all the depolrable things. SHAME ON YOU!!!

    It seems to me based on everything I have read and heard from the people of the 8th, the Former Deputy Prime Minister (FDPM) was her own worst enemy even if this allegation has any truth to it. It appears the Former DPM got caught up in her duties as the Deputy Prime Mister and forgot the district who voted for her in the first place. That was a mistake on her part as she apparently did not strike the right balance between both roles. As such, the people of the 8th punished her at the polls. Even if Mr. Sylvester was not in the race, her lack of work in the district which voted for her would have still been an issue and possible resulted in her defeat. Her defeat should be a lesson to all those who currently hold ministerial positions and were elected as district representatives. Dont forget/neglect the people who voted you in. It was a fatal error for Mrs. Penn Salah, and could be a fatal error for others as well. By the same token, I beleive this is one of the reasons why Frasier and Fahie were able to win re-election. They brought home the bacon to their districts as they were expected to do as representatives. Granted they were critisized for their work among some, they were smart to remember the people who voted for them. All politics is local. People should remember that.

She bluffed people for 4yrs. She blocked everything and failed to make needed decisions in health. Man she got rid of herself. If she had concentrate on her work and her people rather than trying to be the 1st female Premier she would have gotten re-elected and would have been the 1st female Premier.

If the effort the VIP putting into trying to blame Fahie for loosing the election was put into their work over the four years and during the campaign then they would still have the Government. I am a full and proud NDP but if you ask me, the only Minister in the VIP Government worked for the people was Fahie. Probably this where the jealousy is coming from.

    When I add all that we as Territory has benefited from Fahie over the last few years I can see where jealousy has crept into the VIP and they out to kill him. He was the only Minister in the VIP that worked for the people young and old. We now have alternate education programme; improved tech/voc programme at HLSCC; powerschool; lunch programme; bachelor's programme for techers; improved student performance locally and regionally and the list goes on. I voted NDP but I respect and trust Fahie. The Bible is so right. A man doesnt have honour in his own country and thats what happened with Fahie and some selfish VIP elected haters.

      Hon. Fahie, let me tell you something, it had a time when I first entered high school, my mother used to buy me sh** mashers (shoes) to wear, when I got to third form, I needed an upgrade. I told my mother, man mommy, you aint think I too old for dese shoes???? She laughed at me; but my point is; you need an upgrade, I told you from the get go, you are on the wrong team. You need an upgrade, you've outgrown and out visioned the VIP. That team served you well (just like my sh** mashers) but its time to move on to bigger and better things (like the penny loafers that replaced my sh** mashers). The penny loafers will give you a hint of how old I am. lol

    The leadership of the VIP Ralph is the only person I am blaming for their lost. Dancia kill herself and thank God she gone because she is a fake. Fahie keep your head up. As for Vincent that man is a total nut case. Even if you add his votes to Collin's and then multiply them by two you still cant catch Mark so I dont know how they could blame Fahie for Vincent's defeat. If all the VIP Ministers had worked for the people like Fahie did then the VIP would be the Governmnet now. By the way I am half VIP and half NDP.

    The election is over and as Fahie said let us move on & learn from our mistakes.However how could Dancia or any VIP member blame Fahie for their lost? What about the following: Ralph-mash up our finances, let Fraser do what he wanted,signed Claude Cline contract and sit down & let his party blame Fahie, let Dancia do 4years and aint finish a thing like the hospital,incinerator,improve health care,etc;let Omar mash up purcell and we with the green houses with our millions, let his backbench be a public opposition, watched Alvin try to kill him in many ways including trying to start a new political party and still accepted him in the VIP after the attempt failed, let Alvin publicly fight him on the $15million loan, let Alvin bankrupt us over the years with poor decisions, let Fraser give us bi-water! You get the picture. Fahie had his share of mistakes but had more positives than negatives so Fahie keep your head up beacuse the VIP did in themselves. I am a full 2nd district VIP supporter and I am calling it how I see it so lets get serious and move on with wisdom & learn from our past!

    A house divided will collapse; and the HOA under the former Premier self destructed. The demise started with Dancia, a new comer to the VIP, being appointed Deputy Premier. Though they may not publicly acknowledge their dissatisfaction with her appointment, some of her colleagues were fuming, having been overlook for the position. The only reason their dissatisfaction was not more on public display was the 11-2 advantage and the fear of losing power and the perks. Nevertheless, in the end the division resulted in the lost of power. The Premier given the tough economic times, in retrospect, should have taken the government and VIP by the throat and guided both through the tough challenges with some tough love. Instead, the laid back approach letting ministers run wild was disastrous. I'm neutral in this party(s) battle but my observation is that the VIP had too many loose canons who let their egos and self interest trump the VIP's interest. The Premier did not control his ministers or the fair distribution of limited resources and paid dearly at the polls. Further, some at large members did not help matters with their constant whining about not having any thing to do. There is no I in team. Given the the tough economic times, the Premier should have taken the government and VIP by the throat and guide them both through the challenges. Further, Dancia who is highly educated, smart, and experienced but new to game of politics failed to quickly grasp that BVI politics is retail politics. The current political reality is that one has to take care one's district first. Wayward, loose canons were not VIP's only problem and were not the only cause of their demise. The VIP's vulnerabilities were obvious from the 2007 general election results. Though the VIP won with a 11-2 margin, their vote count was not overwhelming. As I recall it was in the low 50's; a victory but not one for celebration, not a landslide. I remember right after the election someone writing in the Beacon about the low margin of victory; it was or should have been the first warning shot. In regards to the Fahie-Penn rumour/allegation, it is a rumor so I'm nothing weighing in other than to say all is fair in war and politics.

      Quiet Storm hit the nail on the had. The demise of the VIP was predictable; it happens to most political parties who have large majority with little or no opposition to keep them in check. Blinded by the large majority, they self destructed. All the stealth or not so stealth in fighting among themselves was destructive. Instead of solidifying and building the party they let their personal agendas get in the way. They focus on the roof when the foundation was crumbling. What good is a well design roof if the foundation is not structurally. They tried to throw the ball before catching it. They all wanted to succeed Ralph but failed to understand one cannot be Premier if one's party does win a majority at the polls. Any organization can only have leader; and if all team members want to be the leader, trouble is on the horizon, i.e., teh self destruction of the VIP. The thrust to be the Premier may have caused some VIP members to apply Machiavellian tactics, i.e., victory ( leadership) by any means necessary. Ego, greed, impatience doomed the VIP. Dancia did a good job as the Deputy Premier; she Deputy Premier of the territory, not just the 8th; she may have been undermined. But the reality she did not take care of her district; politics 101 BVI style says one has to take care of one's district. Sometimes this expectation is misplaced. Resources should go where they are most needed. Uncle Ralph has to shoulder most of the responsibility for the crushing defeat and the precipitous fall. He trusted his ministers to do manage the their ministerial responsibilities effectively but they let him down. The VIP need to be re-engineered , rebuilt, and modernized. The shine of some of the current cast has been tarnished.

    Check this out, but people in the 8th knows what was and went down cause the NDP even work more against the VIP with the registration of people voting in the distrist who don't even live in the 8th. The lines were more of persons living in other districts and the VIP didn't had must time to deal with the matter. Another thing is, was he there for Dancia's launches? hhmmmm!!! What was happening to the Francis Lettsome School Project and the Greenland field under his ministry before it was taken away and put under the Ministry of Finance? The VIP had a Deputy Premier that was not for just her district but was for the entire country. People came to her district office from every district in this country and she never turned anyone away but make sure she saw them all who stayed and sit and waited. Yea, the former Premier needs to be blame also for his slow childish action by allowing the Minister of Eduacation, Minister of Labour and also the Minister for Communication for running wild and doing what them please and as for Vernon he was another mess regards to the house when he came making his suggestion about the money being borrowed and makine the public think that he was never in link with whats going on. The former Premier needs to be blamed because he had enough to shuffle his cabinet and he failed heavy on not doin that. I am a VIP but I am just sick of the dam sh$t with some of them and if them try and listen to the younger party supporters and ask questions them would have had the dam Government today but them heads were stuck up all in them asses so let them take what them got

Min Fahie, the country is too far steeped in financial crisis, economic and structural turmoil to still continue fanning the dwindling sparks of government/civilian discord into an out of control bonfire, all based on as the report states, the beliefs of others. Lets begin to move this country forward to a more positive and brighter future! I for one am very tired of all this negativity and desire to always be on the defense! Sir, the election is over, no matter the outcome!!! There were losers,, winners, and surprises this elections! You WON! Now GET BACK TO WORKING FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF OUR COUNTRY!!! Mr. Fahie what exactly do you plan to do in regards to working with the current government party on improving conditions in our country? That is what we as a people are much more interested in right now...moving our country forward in a positive, uplifting light!!!

    Fahie aint no crook and he did good for education. He sure was better than Lloyd Black. Dancia crook the people and then the people repaid her. It is as simple as that. VIP listen to this partial NDP supporter, get rid of Ralph as head and dont put Fraser because that will be the end. This heat the VIP trying to give Fahie is to poison the people minds towards him but it is a stupid display of commonsense. Vincent did a fine job of loosing his seat himself so don't blame Fahie. All the blame go to Ralph O'NEal. He sat and let his party fight each other as long as they weren't fighting him so he could keep power. Every party will have these kinds of fights but thats where good leadership comes in and that's where Ralph failed and hence the VIP LOST! Blaming Fahie for VIP lost especially Dancia's lost is stupid and childish. Ralph failed the VIP!

    Now make sense out of nonsense! Andrew won his district comfortably. That tells me he put in the time to go and talk to his constituents to vote for him. Mark and Dr Pickering won their districts comfortably. This also tell me they did the work necessary to get constituents to vote for them. To think that Andrew had a plot to make Vincent, and Dancia lose the their districts is really silly. Marlon, Dancia's family, obviously put in sufficient work and brought enough to the table for the 8 District to vote him him. To suggest that Marlon won ONLY because Andrew had a ploy going on the other side is is "utter nonsense". Marlon obviously put the work in. Overall, there was a general move towards an NDP government and any weak district rep was bound to removed from office. That's just the way the cookie crumbles. So ppl get over yourselves and let the Government and Opposition of the Day do their jobs of running the country.
