I never called the Premier a liar- Christian

Mr. Christian (left) has denied calling the Premier a liar.
NORTH SOUND, Virgin Gorda, VI - At Large candidate on the National Democratic Party (NDP) team Archibald Christian, speaking at a political rally in North Sound on Sunday October 16, 2011 said he never called Premier Ralph T. O’Neal a “liar”.

The issue stemmed from a meeting in Virgin Gorda in September where Mr. Christian had told residents that after some investigations about the acquisition of the land at Manchaneel Bottom he had found that Hon. O’Neal “has not paid one penny for that land which is now privately owned.”

Mr. Christian had also stated that Hon. O’Neal did not enter into negotiations with the owners. “How can you tell your people that you have done something when you have not in fact done anything? The truth needs to be told,” he had said.

In response to the attack, Hon. O’Neal had stated at the launch of 4th District Representative Dr. Vincent Scatliffe that, “I heard Archibald Christian say at one of the meetings that Ralph O’Neal is a liar; but everyday he lives his mortal life he will regret those words.”

But Mr. Christian said on Sunday that he never called the Premier a liar and that he only said the Premier should tell the people the truth about that land and the fact that he had not acquired it.

The At Large candidate again reiterated that the land in question has still not been acquired by Government. “On the question of land acquisition, ladies and gentlemen, I want you to know that as of Friday, the business day that closed in Government, the Government of the Virgin Islands still did not acquire the lands in Manchaneel Bottom. The second notice has not been published and therefore we await the completion of that negotiation.”

He also urged residents to pressure the Premier into revealing the cost for the land they are now seeking to acquire to build a cargo dock. “The question you must ask your Honourable Premier when he comes back to you after the second publication is how much money is he intending to spend on behalf of the citizens and residents of the Virgin Islands for that land in Manchaneel Bottom.”

Meanwhile, in supporting his colleague Dr. Hubert O’Neal, Mr. Christian said if Dr. O’Neal is elected, the distribution of land will be restructured and not used as a political tool around election time. “Government owns hundreds of acres of lands in Virgin Gorda and Anegada and the sale and distribution of those lands on both islands must be an ongoing process, free of political interference and affiliation.”

    Ralph is always about threatening people. What is he going to do to Archie to make him regret those words for the rest of his life I wonder? He can never face the truth and be respectful, he is always about bullying and threatening. Ralph those tactics are outdated nobody is afraid of you anymore. And so what if you were called a liar, Aren't you? If you did something or know something that should be told to the people who you represents and you keep it from them, and only feeding them what you want them to know, then that make you an UNTRUTHFUL person. An untruthful person is a liar. Archie nothing to apologize for.

Why don't they produce the financial documents, AG reports for the past 3yrs so we can see our financial position? WHY???????????NDP LIe? They don't have to lie to beat the VIP which was crippled by Fraser and his antics! LOLOL!!!! Tell Ralph aka 'Satan shouter' go sit down, his time is up!! Every time VIP has a launch more and more people are turned off by the desperation! The nail in the coffin was the freak show fraser had 2 saturdays ago, lord look jokes.

    Archi need to go back to school, because it is obvious that he doesn’t know that when you stand on a platform in a public arena and say to the Premier to tell the people the truth and on top of this he gave an example of a leader from another country with a similar land issue he is calling the Premier a LIAR.
