Myron to Premier: Don’t attempt to rewrite my tenure

- former TB Chairman says he will be forced to speak out if it continues
Former BVITB Chairman now At Large Candidate under the NDP Myron Walwyn (right) says Premier Ralph T. O'Neal (left) should not try to rewrite his tenure as Chairman or he will be forced to speak out.
ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – Former chairman of the BVI Tourist Board (BVITB) Myron Walwyn is politely asking the Premier and other Government politicians to refrain from attempting to re-write his tenure as chairman or he will be forced to speak out.

Mr. Walwyn, who resigned from the post in July 2010 after nearly two years, made the statement last evening Thursday October 13, 2011 at the National Democratic Party (NDP) tent meeting which was held in Baughers Bay.

According to Walwyn, he has heard from Government political meetings that Premier Ralph T. O’Neal in his political expediency is now attempting to re-write his tenure as Chairman of the BVITB. The At Large candidate also divulged that he heard a Government backbencher questioning his competence and record.

“I know he is listening, and so I urge the Premier and Minister of Tourism of this country to quickly abandon the road that he seems to be heading down and let sleeping dogs lie... I have deliberately stayed clear of this topic during the campaign because I firmly believe that we have too many problems in this country, and we should be providing solutions for those problems... and we should be telling the people what we intend to do to improve their lives,” he told supporters.

He continued, “I also believe when you have served as director of a company or a statutory board in this case you should not use information that came to your knowledge in that capacity for the furtherance of any agenda whether political or otherwise. However, there are exceptions. I believe that one of those exceptions would be in circumstances where your character, professional integrity and stewardship are being maligned by persons whom you serve.”

His tenure at the Tourist Board, Mr. Walwyn pointed out, was articulated by the Premier whose high praises of his performance is recorded on tape. And according to the At Large candidate, he will rely on those tapes if it becomes necessary to do so.

As for the At Large representative who questioned his record, Mr. Walwyn stated, “I believe that holders of such high political office should be more prudent and refrain from commenting on matters when they are not in receipt of all the facts. I hope this is not the kind of behaviour that they will be displaying if they get a chance to go to London”.

He added that the 2011 general elections is too important for the people of the Territory for time to be wasted on matters that do not elevate their quality of life or standard of living.

    The funny man is the one who trying to rewrite history. He did nothing for the sector but give out free shirts to taxi men. Beside that he spent his time trying to oppress the locals, stop Ms. Ward from being director, pushing all the NDP for promotion, write up Abby and complain about Uncle Ralph and act like he got dey without Uncle Ralph. The staff spent all the time blogging on everything he did from Virgin Gorda to Tortola and he spent time trying to call them up in VG asking who sent blog. Funny man Myron tenure at the Tourist Board was a dark chapter in the Board’s history. Ask Abby, the staff and the girls bossman. Dem say if they needed a pen to do dem work he had to sign…the dude just hungry for power…people we cannot elect he...NEVER NEVER

    This man have something personal against the Primier and every time he takes a swipe at him I am gaining less support for him. Myron has some good ideas but if you look at it Dr Pickering is the only one on the NDP team who showed respect to the Primier to date at his launching, now I aint saying the VIP did such a great job but lets get real if we look around the region we are not that bad off as most and atlease they could give some kind of credit to him, the funny thing is I am not even a VIP supporter.

      I got some questions for the NDP Klan....... 1.....Has the NDP turn into a comedy show? I sure think so with the sit down comedian who claim She's gonna send her speeches bill to Dr Smith.... 2......WHERE IS DR PICKERING through all these rallies? Why is he so quiet? 3.......What has OJ sounding so humble these days? 4......If the NDP is such the best to put in power, why were they voted out so badly? What has changed? 5.......Is Myron or Dr Smith the head of NDP now? 6.......if the NDP is so "together" as they claim, why is Myron acting like he's the man... The only man keeping the NDP 7.......If Archie is sooooooo dumb now to ask people to put him further up on the polls over on the next online site.... Is he really fit to represent the territory at-large? Don't tell me he was joking either!!!!!!! He fully well knows Some NDP loyalist is running there with their crazy fingertips pressing pressing pressing lol 8.......does Archie think people are as dumb as he thinks we are to come back now to say he did not call the premier a A liar? Someone who you ask to tell the truth is obviously lying somewhere....take my advice.... Go back to real estate. You're "PROBABLY" good at that, but politics just don't cut it !!!!! 9....... Will Myron accept when we come with tapes for him????? We got him too! Nnn

        DESPERATIONNNN!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAH!! All foolish questions! NDP has a TEAM a full team! As Ms P said, Put the VIP in a room to sleep, turn off the lights and everybody will have their back against the wall, a machete in their laps and sleep with one eye open,that's A FACT!! NDP would sleep soundly because there's no backbiting in there. I noticed as of late, VIP idiots trying to cast doubt in people's mind with this crap about who's the leader of the NDP. Dr Smith is the leader and the candidates reiterate this at each launch, no confusion there. Picko is at almost every launch, not because you don't see him on TV means he's not there. OJ humble? Wait until 20 October when we wake the neighbors, including Fraser, down in Pleasant Valley!! It will be mass!! I remember when Fraser said "My people, if I do not have running water in all your pipes do not re-elect me!" hahahaiii! We got ting!!! OJ will show him what a lil boy can do!! So boss go sit down with your propaganda, we are about issues! Don't ask NDP no damn question, ask the Government in power what happen to the IPOC $22mil now we here begging CDB for a measly $15mil, when will contractors be paid their almost $30mil in fees? Owing them this much and still handing out contracts? When will sewerage projects start? How many times have we paid Carvin and CBE for works? Why Fraser never questioned how much Carvin charges the Government? Is biwater cheaper than Carvin when it comes to sewerage? Why not take Carvin contracts and give them to biwater in the interest of saving money? That was the rationale used against OC, so why not Carvin? LOL!!! You think everybody stupid? So if you think those questions you have up there bothering people, you lie! People have higher light bill, driving on nasty roads, splashing through raw sewerage, can barely afford a bread and pack of cheese in the supermarket, some are underpaid or unemployed, now we have civil servants not being paid on time, all this while Fraser and Omar use our Treasury as their personal cookie jar doing nonsense? So you ask your party the real questions, NDP ARE JUST FINE! They are ready from day one to take BUS BVI out of the ditch, TALK BRING TALK!!

      You should know that respect is earned... It's not an obligation with regard to prestige... The premier like any other man should respect others in order together respect.... But evidently you wouldn't know anything about respect.

        but Myron is not even in the Premier's class...Myron is seen as dark skin, speaks broken English and from the lower class in society. A law degree and some campaign $$$$$$ do not put Myron in the BVI upper class...most people who are the indigenous elites look down on Myron as a want to be trying hard to be some body..but he is far from being ready for this thing!...he is not in the upper class.....and that is how he is regarded by most locals.

          "LORD WAY HE GOING" This is so true. That is why the VIP would have not selected him to run with them this year. So out of desperation he found a home in the NDP.....smith is soft so he can rule dey, can tek over dey, can have a say and voice dey in his hope for attention and to prove he can do tis and dat! Dem the same people (nasty NDP) he campaigned against for some 10 years. He has something to prove. Myron has an inferiority complex. He wants to prove that he could get elected, but looking at his pass he has never win anything in the BVI….How will he tek his lost on election morning..hope the two docs help him, as I predict he will go crazy and walk the streets like YELLOW!

            VIP has a process for selecting its candidates. How was MARLON selected, and why was MYRON and OJ selected? Look through both groups in terms of people who think themselves up there, and let us know what you come up with.

    Mr. Walwyn has all rights to defend himself against the Premier or whomever else. I agree with Mr. Walwyn Hon. O'Neal well know that a lot of what went down with the Tourist Board involes his family member. He better hope Mr. Walwyn does not talk.

    Myron on street talking how them VG people so dumb and won't even know what him them when they vote out Old Man Ralph. How he will make sure them dumb fool over VG will wish they had out back in Ralph but I will be the one to retire Ralphie. When I heard this I say, not my vote Myron. Why? Because Uncle Ralph is an honorable man and he done a lot for Virgin Gorda People and the BVI too. We giving Uncle Ralph one more term then he will retire himself. We owe him that at least. Let's show them how dumb we are by not voting in the NDP.

    The reasonable question to ask of this candidate is moralistic in nature; so during your tenure at TB, you come across information which is of detriment to another and/or directly impacts the community and continue to walk around with it to this day? Now we are now subjected to a "show down at the OK corral"? If a public official has information to share, do it, but not at the expense of the voters.
