‘Marlon is a Puppet, not a Leader’ – Kaream K. Pickering

-Says NDP can’t get back into power with current faces
On the Tuesday April 8, 2019, edition of ‘Hard Talk’ on Tola Radio VI with co-host, Julio S. Henry, Mr Pickering further charged that the current Opposition Leader, Hon Marlon A. Penn (R8) is a ‘puppet’ who lacks leadership qualities, and this was evident when he allowed himself to be led by the embattled Chairman of the NDP, Mr Myron V. Walwyn ahead of the 2019 elections in the VI. Photo: Facebook
According to Moff, “If Marlon had stood firm and not let Myron lead him, I could have said this is a leader, a man that stands behind principles, a man that will not be turned. I could have said that and I would have rallied for Hon Penn,” he revealed. Photo: Facebook

ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – Radio host and Social commentator, Kaream K. Pickering aka 'Picko Moff' is of the view that for the National Democratic Party (NDP) to ever have a chance at power again in the Virgin Islands (VI) they will need new faces and a stronger leader.

On the Tuesday April 8, 2019, edition of ‘Hard Talk’ on Tola Radio VI with co-host, Julio S. Henry, Mr Pickering further charged that the current Opposition Leader, Hon Marlon A. Penn (R8) is a ‘puppet’ who lacks leadership qualities, and this was evident when he allowed himself to be led by the embattled Chairman of the NDP, Mr Myron V. Walwyn ahead of the 2019 elections in the VI.

Moff on the Attack

“Marlon is a puppet, Marlon is not a leader… I like Marlon, he’s a good person, he’s a good brother, but he’s not a Leader, he’s not a go charge [person],’ Mr Pickering told his listening audience on Tuesday evening.

According to Moff, “If Marlon had stood firm and not let Myron lead him, I could have said this is a leader, a man that stands behind principles, a man that will not be turned. I could have said that and I would have rallied for Hon Penn,” he revealed.

When question by co-host Mr Henry on whether the current faces of the NDP let by the Opposition Leader can have a chance at power, he implored that for that to happen, the NPD would have to get rid of all their current players.

“Form a new government with a new set of faces, not a new set of puppets, new set of faces that’s if this government [VIP] don’t do good,” Pickering said.

He says that even if the NDP comes back in power or try, the Opposition Leader Hon Penn will be easily be led, “in my opinion, we have seen it… even if NDP try to rebrand the NDP with the face of Marlon Penn, I would never fall for it.”

NPD Doesn’t care – Picko Moff

According to the outspoken radio host, the NDP is yet to demonstrate that they care for the Territory, as he pointed out instances where major projects were started only close to elections as a ploy.

“They say they care, but all what they could have fixed with all of this money, they did nothing with it and then they come to pave road that already paved while the fireman still up there getting sick, the people them in the complex still getting sick, VG Government Building still mash up, several places still mash up,” he said.

Further, he says, “I have seen what have happened and I will not fall for it… he [Hon Penn] is not a leader and I will not want to see him as Premier of my Country.”

Mr Pickering implored, that he intends to keep the conversation going so that the issue can remain alive in the minds of the people.

“No I will never stop talking about this because I will never let you guys forget, so all of you who was going to say oh why he don’t leave NDP alone, why he don’t move on… you guys have a tendency of forgetting and next elections, [you] give them another chance.”

      Y’all like Sheep led to a slaughter. Marlon is cool,nothing personal against him but how can he be a good leader when East End people bawling about sewerage for years and when they finally
      Budget some funds to fix the problem Marlon who also lives in the East and is affected by the sewerage watched Mark break protocol and use $8 million to put in the Pier Park. Does that sound like a leader. He ran with that same team when they didn’t care about him and his constituents. A leader would have fought that move until the end. That was cause to make yuh mouth big and bruk up the party.

      Julio should be ashamed of himself. If it was not for the NDP he would have been walking around led by someone holding his hand.

    one thing some of us have titles for our own people: some of us have a lot of talk: but I know with out any doubt the Hon Marlon Penn fore-parents work hard towards the development of this territory: some of them that have the democratic right to speak; will not and can not bring nothing productive to the development table....that God for freedom to speak

    Moff this is a free country and you can speak freely for the next 4 years. 1. The sewerage plant Paraquita Bay built more than 3 years and not one house connected to it as yet. NDP used, diverted funds and overspent funds and the sewerage plant still not in use. 2. The 8th district street lights in East End, across the Bridge and on Beef Island needs replacing after hurricane Urma. The road to the Balsum Ghut Prison needs repair. The time wasted talking about NDP/VIP Politics is useless unless the opposition is serious about moving forward. Leader of the Opposition show some leadership and get your district fixed.
