Hon. Fraser regards the project to install a sidewalk from Sea Cows Bay to Hannah as one of his proud accomplishments for the 3rd District.
PLEASANT VALLEY, Tortola, VI- Telling residents of Pleasant Valley in the 3rd District at a rally last evening October 28, 2011 that the opposition was indulging in mind games and lies to unseat him at the November 7 General Elections, Hon. Julian Fraser RA challenged anyone to bring the proof and he would reward them…with car and land.

The incumbent representative was referring in particular to two rumors that have been circulating and which were allegedly started by the opposition.

One of the rumours is that he owns a property adjacent to the wall in Sea Cows Bay and that the Sea Cows Bay Harbour Development Project was particularly in his interest and those of a few. “And I have a challenge to each of you in this district. I know that you have heard the lies around that the property adjacent to that wall is mine. I implore you to take a trip to the Land Registry on Monday morning, take a lawyer with you and if that land is mine it is yours. I give it to you. If you find my name on any land around that wall it belongs to you. The first person to find it, it is yours.”

The Minister also threw out another challenge that if proven could bring the person with the proof a new car! This challenge he said he had put to his committee but was also going to the people of his district “just to show you how the lies are flying and they are all around me, those lies”.

According to Minister Fraser, when it was announced that there were 304 new people on the voter’s registration list for the district, the “other side” immediately ran out and said they registered half of those people. “The challenge I gave to my committee was if somebody walked up to you and told you they registered half of those people, open your car door leave the engine running, get out of it and tell them if you can prove it take the car. And let them go with the car if they prove it. Just bring the proof to me and I will send you to my wife and she will take you to whoever car dealer are in town to give you the best car that you want.”

Hon. Fraser further said the opposition has been so desperate to unseat him that they have been indulging in mind games to give the impression that they are ahead. He said he has never been in a campaign since 1999 when he was so much the focus and in the spotlight but yet he won.

Meanwhile, the Minister for Communication and Works said his aim is always to execute in the best interest of the 3rd District and the Territory as a whole. He rated the Sea Cows Bay-Hannah Sidewalk Project, as one of the best of his accomplishments and which brought him many positive responses from the district.

“From Albion Wall to Palestina it was the only section of road that did not get sidewalk during that time. I did the installation back in 2003 and it was without question the most dangerous stretch of Drake’s Highway. Ladies and gentlemen despite the setback and as reported earlier the sidewalks are open to pedestrian traffic and for the first time in modern times people can walk from Sea Cows Bay to Hannah without having to take their lives into their own hands.”

Hon. Fraser also extended special thanks to the landowners for their courtesy, understanding and willingness to be a part of the development of the District by facilitating the Sea Cows Bay-Hannah Sidewalk Project.

      So what if NDP send spies, who quietly comes and goes? Same time during OJ's peaceful fish fry Frazer's "Ice Box Truck" stood next to the well accross the road and blasted VIP theme song and his campaign rubbish. That has NEVER EVER happen before. Frazer is really a man of FIRSTS - First traffic lights build and removed, first 48,000.00 speed bump next to the Airport (serving absolutely NO purpose), first useless GREAT WALL of SEA COWS BAY, and, and, and... What skeleton in Uncle's closet he knows off that he get away with all this stupidness.

    FRASER YOU GOING HOMMMMMEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! HAHA!! You can feel it that's why you talking so much crap lately!!! People talking about scooping, of course the camp come up to see how the rally was going, Pleasant Valley isn't Fraser own! When OJ had the place RAM in Hannah's last week, Roja was right there in E&B parking lot looking on so what's the problem? He was welcomed to join and listen in, OJ peeps aren't ignorant and stupid like Fraser own. They don't take it personal!! LOL! When Election done everybody still got to be together!! Fraser taking credit for building Ebenezer School, check the facts, it was built in 2004-2005 under who? NDP! So they say NDP don't like Sea Cows Bay? When the plans roll out, when the truck men and contractors get their calls to come get their piece of the pie, it won't make any sense you all put anybody against OJ next time around because everybody will be happy and well fed. Nobody has to prove any lies, people are asking questions! Nobody accuse Fraser of anything, people asking him to clarify and he's running from it! Of course the land is not in his name, it's in Hannah Bay Reclamation, which his brother is a director. Aqua Design plant, same thing! Putting something in family name doesn't change anything. How can Fraser move with a development based on a 1999 planning approval? Our money spending on it and Government turn around and issuing stop order on it? Wait until OJ last Rally this Thursday, "talk bring TALK!" YOU WILL HEAR!! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!! He's telling people to prove things, why doesn't he produce the paper work for the project and end the talk? People want answers, but he's playing tricks trying to buy time, it won't work!!!! OJ is a real man of the people and the only ones that will be upset WHENNNN he wins are those raping out Treasury and won't go look work! OJ ALLLLL THE WAY!! Youth for OJ, that's a fact! Hon. Kevin 'OJ' Smith, Rep of the 3rd and Minister of...................... haha, I won't talk all!!

      All the stupid negative lies will not mean again from November 8th. The facts are clear we are voting Fraser back in office. We do not want to see the front or back of the silly nasty desperate NDP who do not like the problem from the 3rf district. OJ should be ashamed of himself to be associated with a group that does not like his people. How the hell can I as a resident of the Sea Cows Bay area every vote for OJ that fool…you have to love your people first deman…just start there.

        Your head is so far up Fraser's ass that you don't see the point!! I never said Fraser had nothing to do with the school, I bait you into it and bait you good! Let me break it down for you simpleton! Fraser said when NDP was in, NOTHING was done in sea cows bay. That's what Fraser said! He said NOTHING was done! Something as important as a school can be called 'nothing'?? If NDP hate Sea Cows Bay why they worked with Fraser to get the school built? So stick to the script, it's either they hate Sea Cows Bay or they don't! As far as I could tell, when Fraser was in opposition contracts were still being given out hand over fist to Sea Cows Bay contractors, that's the truth! So it must mean that when he requested certain things, NDP worked with him. Pickering said loud and clear that he has the PREMIER to thank for the gazebo! Don't bring picko in your mess! He's a real man, he give VIP and the Premier their props for working with him. Why Fraser and Andrew couldn't do the same? Both got things done but are here lying through their teeth, GROW UP!!! Fraser represented the 3rd for 12yrs, have you ever seen a DISTRICT PLAN? NO!! All you saw is a 'marina' plan!! The District runs from Prospect Reef to Cox Heath, where is the infrastructure plan for the entire district? He's an Architect, yet there's NONE! OJ has one and once elected you will see what true representation is! The people FED UP!

      Responding to someone like you is simply tolet readers know how you people (NDP) people lie lie lie. The Ebenezer Thomas School project was a VIP Project. The VIP was in office from 1999 - 2003 June -July. NDP 2003 -2007 Aug 20th. Now you give the start and finish dates of the Ebenezer Thomas School. You people cant speak the truth even if it bit you in the rear. One other thing, Fraser was not away from the VI any almost 30 years. You are sick. Besides, for the time he was away he returned home religously every year, sometimes 4-5 times a year.

    1. Why is it that everyone is saying the country so broke but still fighting to get in power? 2. Why is it that some people start these rumors to discredit people before looking in the mirror? 3. Have anyone stop to look at what this election is doing to the people of these Virgin Islands, and ask is this the way it is going to be from hear forward. 4. We have one partly that say are for the family but 2 members in this party left there wives for other women and when there decide to run there went back to there wives.

      Why are you contradicting yourself? I thougt you were actually going to make a difference and make a positive response. You people are really sickining. When you are talking about what "we" going do, speak foryourelves. People of the British Virgin Islands. Dont allow these bloggers to persway you. I dont know if you have been paying close attention, but it is the same set of ignorant people making comments on all of the news sights in an attempt to continue the mind games that their supports are also playing but only from the podiums. Pray and ask the Lord's guideance as to who to vote for. Look for Godly men and women, candidates with integrity. Their personal failures should have absolutley nothing to do with you unless you yourselves are without sin and therefore qualified to cast the first stone. If we were to ask all of the candidates to honestly go on thier platforms and confess their personal sins, have of you would be shocked. Nobody is perfect. If you think that based on a candidates past he or she is disqualified as a leader of this nation, then that is your call and a decision you should be willing to make on your own with out the help of those who are paid to intentionally paint the candidate they oppose black so that their favorite who may not be any better to gain an edge on this election. Stay focussed, pick the best of all the candidates for all have sinned. Some private, some public, all has skeletons in their closets. So of all the 43 imperfect human being running for this election, ask God to guide you to pick the best leaders of the country. If perfection was a pre-requisite for running for this election, then none would qualify. Why? ALL HAVE SINNED AND COME SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD....BUT FOR THE GRACE OF GOD!!!!!! I cant wait for this election to come and go because at the end of the day, God raises up one an takes down another.

    While it is politics as usual it is unfortunate that for this talk season we seen to believe that to spew untruth and cast mud at others character is acceptable. I wish to add a little picture to the debate. I live in the district and Mr. Fraser was a prominent throughout . That's no joke. What is funny though is that not until about six months ago I heard of Mr. Smith in the district and approximately two months ago I saw him walking around greeting people. It is part of the campaign to meet and greet. Where was this the previous the two-three years. I expect this post to generate the typical quick response in the negative with all the ramblings. lets have it.

      Where was Fraser before he actually contested that seat in 1999, which was more or less handed to him by Cills? Last time I checked, he was in the US for almost 3 decades. So why is it a problem that only now 'you' seeing Kevin Smith? Kevin grew up and has lived in that District for the past years. Apart from leaving for the Army and College, the 3rd has been his home. Of course the representative would be out in the District more than Kevin, is that all you got? Grasping for straws are we? What is this contest about, Mr. Popularity or who can represent the people overall on a better scale and take us, ENGAGE US, the youth of this Territory and District, to become better and strive for excellence, rather than being trained to beg a politician for what's rightfully ours!! So you tell me now, you saying you only knew of OJ 6mths ago and saw him 2mths ago. Before Fraser ran in 1999 where was he? And as far as I know, Fraser drives through that district with his big black jeep and glasses rolled up ALL THE TIME!!!! He doesn't socialize at the bars, recreational facilities etc. unless there's something in it for him! He was by a bar a few months ago and people laughed at him because he looked so uncomfortable around 'normal' people! You not fooling anyone with your folly!! Irene live Pock Wood Pond donkey years, ask the voters down there if they see her over the past 4yrs!!! Where was Zoe over the past four years? Where was Malone? Alvin? They were elected but never seen, but you want to jump down a private person's throat! DESPERATION!!!

    LOL!! How you people get so confused? You saying NDP hate sea cows bay and then turn around and said Fraser got Ebenezer built, and other work done under NDP! So which is it? If they hate Sea Cows Bay how did he manage to get things done? Don't fool yourself!! People are seeing right through the nonsense and you know what people hate more than Mr. Fraser's attitude? The attitude of his supporters! OJ wasn't a fool when he was running the post office. OJ wasn't a fool when they offered him the PS position. OJ wasn't a fool when he first decided to run and they thought it was a cake walk. Everything was fine! But when they realize the following that this young man has, ALL HELL BRUK LOOSE! All of a sudden he don't like his people and this and that. Fraser left here for almost 30yrs and returned, what stupidness you telling me about who like this and that? You all treat him like he is a god! I never see anybody from OJ camp disrespect Fraser, why? Nobody has to! That's the difference between MEN and BOYS!! Let Fraser campaign on his record! He has been Minister of C&W for over 8yrs and we still have ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL the same problems ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!l Nobody will get into any silly arguments with you people, it's desperation! Come November 8th we will see who will be talking and who will be walking! Mr. Fraser is a sitting Minister of Government. He's a grown man! Instead of grand standing and behaving like a jack, all Mr. Fraser needed to do was calmly put on display the evidence that he has to disprove lies. Think about it! OJ and many others are ASSSSSSKING questions, not accusing anybody! People have a right to ask questions. To date, Fraser cannot produce one Government document regarding that development. If he could produce something concrete OJ would be history, but why isn't he doing it? That's the big question but his blind, handout loving followers can't see that! Just like Myron play the tape on Ralph, why Fraser don't show us the marina documents, show us who paying for all the slabs and other work, show us who the owners and directors of Hannah Bay Reclamation are, since everybody lying, you show us Fraser! Just like last election when he got desperate last minute and send a letter St Thomas with pure lies, you can watch out for similar tactics! Those who talking about wife and nonsense, we are not voting for BVI Pope, we are voting for a representative! Also, if you don't want certain things to get out there, you shouldn't throw stones, that's all I would say to that! See you November 8th and don't worry, we'll still embrace you and help you out of the hole, don't mind the noise!! HAHAHAHA!!

    Sea Cow's Bay people should be ashamed of themselves to inflict him on the entire Territory. Someone who feels it is ok to have water in Sea Cow's Bay while the rest of the Territory suffers that is selfish and poor representation for a Minister. The VIP party was a good party until he joined and uncle gave him power. Sea Cows Bay better realize what is going on and be good to the Territory and vote him out of office.
