ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – Honestly Speaking’s host, Mr Claude O. Skelton Cline, has ‘called out’ National Democratic Party (NDP) Chairman, Honourable Myron V. Walwyn (AL), over what he calls his, “wicked” and “divisive” politics.

Mr Skelton-Cline lambasted the NDP Leader at the close of his Tuesday, December 4, 2018, radio broadcast, as he responded to Hon Walwyn’s earlier public statement to residents of the Territory, in relation to the state of affairs of the party.

Hon Walwyn in an audio clip released over the weekend had said, “following (the NDP’s) internal democratic elections in June (2018), a few members resigned from our party, to say that I am disappointed in their actions is an understatement.”

In a subtle swipe however, Hon Walwyn said, “my disappointment comes moreso, for you the people, that elected officials could not put their personal agendas aside and work together to take our Territory out of the disastrous situations we were placed in, by the August floods and a historic two Category-5 Hurricanes in September 2017.”          

Honestly Speaking’s Skelton-Cline in clapping back at the NDP Leader said he needs to be called out for his sentiments and for him to be held accountable.

Caution

The radio host and social commentator, told listeners “I want to caution this community and even caution the Chairman (Hon Walwyn) that we do not engage in political whistle blowing, where we are giving one type of message to one group of the community, while signalling a different one to the rest of the community.”

He said, “this level of slick type of divisiveness, that seeks to divide us has to be called out at every turn when we see it and hear it…I want us to guard against the level of dividing us as a people, segmenting us and making us think that one group hate the other, for our own personal gain and advancement.”

The radio host said, Hon Walwyn’s tactics are in fact, “wicked and they are deceiving."

According to Mr Skelton Cline, “I am not saying specifically, and maybe I am, but what I heard in part of that speech sir, is exactly that.”

He was at the time making reference to Walywn’s retort of disappointment, in those that defected from the party and resigned while at the same time accusing them of turning their backs on their elected representatives.

    I am so glad that someone took that man to task. Speaking with one tongue that the upcoming elections should not be of a derogatory nature, while using the other twisted tongue to bash the members of the new party in a 'subtle' manner (as if we are mumus and don’t realise what he is doing). Give us credit, Man. We are neither fools, idiots nor mumus.

    You can only recognize evil and wicked in others when you yourself possess the same character.

    Let’s not forget how you played dirty when you ran for politics when you came back home.

    Don’t have selective Amnesia.

    Myron was such a popular , strategic and likable Politician and person . I too also liked him. But when that Super Market top security guard get let go for what I think deserves a warning for a Guyanee and neither Myron or his government put up a strong fight .This was one case I think they should have flex their muscles for this young NDP loyalist and a popular voice for them..This is when Myron lost my support .There after all these revelations .. My who was once the best sprinter and the best marathon runner has lose focus .Lost his way...Get back on Track Myron .. Fight for the people . Put people first especially those who fought for you to be where you at . Love all people . .I am confuse don't know who to support . I am still leaning towards Myron
