      Are we talking about John who is running on the VIP ticket? Because there are many who are known for passing people like they don't know them and now pretending to be people person all of a sudden.

    If you want to know what kind of woman this lady is then just ask all the people that worked with her especially those that worked under her. They have nothing good to say.

      What we really want to know is what your co-workers, friends and family would say about you! Think up and stop slandering people's name in the name of politics. Everybody has people they get along with and people they don't. And if she is their supervisor then of course they have nothing good to say because they want their own way. Keep your head up Sylvia. David did slay Goliath with God's help and strategy.

      Have Hon. Fahie done anything? He is bragging that he has been your representative for 20 years. What do you have to show for it as a District? Remember he is spending tax payers money every year. I think it is $250,000 a year per district. On what? Can you answer that? Mediocrity seems to be what you want. Well I hope somebody whips him good. Truth be told he built a few bathrooms, paved a few ghuts and reclaimed a few feet of land. The poor people of the First don't aspire for much, do they? But then again maybe he is handing it out to "constituents" to ensure a vote. Now he wants to run the entire country and can't manage a small District. Poor people. You should sit down and be quiet.

        $250,000.00 per year! Is that for all District Representatives? If so, I don't see anything done for the Z6NE people up country. There needs to be an accountability giving in a public forum to the constituents bi-monthly as to what is going on.

    I am an NDP Supporter who lives in the 1st District and I have a lot of respect for Hon. Andrew A. Fahie. I personally thank him for his leadership in the 1st district especially during the worse natural disaster in the history of the BVI. He was there for us in the 1st district. Sorry to my NDP but it would be ungrateful if my family and I do not vote for him. He has earned it.

    This is a jokey game right about now.

    Some of these just coming politicans have business and don't treat the people right becareful who ayo go out on the streets and pick up not because the held certain positions in government make them a politician. They don't speak to people I wonder in such a short time what are they going to say.

      ‘... not because they held certain positions make them Politians...’

      ... so that would also apply to VIP Vincent Wheatley, Arlene Thompson, John Samuel, Luce hodge and Alcedo fahie...

      What goes for one side is even worst on the other side
    • @ concern (16/01/2019, 00:22) Like (5) Dislike (7) Reply
      that means that more half of the VIP team fit in this bracket - Arlene, Alcedo, Vincent, john and most certainly Kye.
  • My Take (15/01/2019, 17:09) Like (35) Dislike (9) Reply
    I see Fahie as a true leader and a fearless warrior. I do not have anything against this lady although I really do not know her but I will not change Fahie at this time. I was impressed how Fahie handled the crisis after Irma especially in the first district. He showed that he is an effect leader especially in the time of crisis and major natural disaster. I was also impressed with how Fahie when he was the leader of the opposition put country above self and party politics and joined with the Premier to journey to the UK to fight for the best for our country. I also like how Fahie stands up for the rights of we the people in the House of Assembly and be the voice for the voiceless. He is a true champion for the people!
