BAUGHERS BAY, Tortola, VI - A resident who identified herself as a National Democratic Party (NDP 1) supporter, called into the NDP 1 Talk show, ‘NDP Radio’ and spoke her mind.

She noted that she was not aware that “there was a new NDP,” and stated how the public is “unhappy” with the governance of the NDP.  She also noted the “young people can take it, but not the old people.”

She asked why the NDP turned away the ship that was sent to feed the people after the Hurricanes. The caller was at the time calling into the radio show on ZBVI 780 AM last evening Monday, February 4, 2019.

I am speaking truth - caller

The female caller noted she saw with her ‘own eyes’ water running down the cheeks of citizens who said no one was looking out for the people.

The caller stated on public radio that when Little Bay Hotel on Virgin Gorda was closed, “none of the natives got help, the natives were not provided for… that is a fact 100% true,” she alleged.

She noticed after the hurricanes, no NDP member looked out for the people. She said, “I will speak my mind clearly.” 

The caller further asked why the roads are being paved now?, “Each election they come with the same lies… I listen to everyone… and it’s not about the money and wherever the money is now, it was always there,” the caller noted.

The NDP caller accused the Hon Myron V. Walwyn (AL), led party of trying to fool the people and asked them to “stop this lying story, it’s time for it to stop” she asserted.  She said, “we need to look to God for help for the state the country is in.”

Country need God for help - Caller

The caller said, “When we voted the VIP out, the country was broken, but not in pieces like what I am seeing now.”  She further noted, “only the Almighty God can save the BVI…. only him we can look to for help.”

The lady said on public radio that “the very election is not fair to us and we are upset.”  She noted that the NDP turned away the ship to feed the people.

At that time, Hon Marlon A. Penn (R8) intervened and said “that was not true,” and they made an attempt to cut off the caller, and to that, she warned them not to cut her off.

The sentiments of the caller are that of most residents, after the Hurricanes of 2017, most of the people did not see any member of current NDP regime.

    According to the 2007 Constitution of the Virgin Islands:


    Qualifications for elected membership
    65.—(1) Subject to this section and section 66, a person shall be qualified to be elected as a member of the House of Assembly if, and shall not be qualified to be so elected unless, he or she— (a) was so qualified immediately before the commencement of this Constitution; or (b) is a person who— (i) is a Virgin Islander of the age of twenty-one years or upwards; and (ii) is otherwise qualified as a voter under section 68. (2) Subject to subsections (3) and (4), for the purposes of subsection (1)(b)(i) a “Virgin Islander” is a person who belongs to the Virgin Islands by birth or descent who was— (a) born in the Virgin Islands of a father or mother who at the time of the birth was a British overseas territories citizen (or a British Dependent Territories citizen) by virtue of birth in
    35
    the Virgin Islands or by virtue of descent from a father or mother who was born in the Virgin Islands; (b) born in the Virgin Islands of a father or mother who at the time of the birth belonged to the Virgin Islands by birth or descent; or (c) born outside the Virgin Islands of a father or mother who at the time of the birth belonged to the Virgin Islands by birth or descent. (3) A person born outside the Virgin Islands who belongs to the Virgin Islands by descent shall not be qualified to be elected as a member of the House of Assembly unless one of his or her grandparents belonged to the Virgin Islands by birth. (4) A person, whether born in or outside the Virgin Islands, who would otherwise be qualified to be elected as an elected member of the House of Assembly by virtue of subsection (1)(b) shall not be so qualified unless— (a) where that person has never been domiciled in the Virgin Islands, he or she has resided in the Virgin Islands for at least five years immediately before the date of his or her nomination for election; or (b) where that person was formerly domiciled in the Virgin Islands but has lived outside the Virgin Islands for a continuous period of at least ten years (excluding periods related to medical or educational purposes), he or she has resided in the Virgin Islands for at least three years immediately before the date of his or her nomination for election and is domiciled in the Virgin Islands at that date.

    Who is responsible for enforcing this? And will it be enforced this election? Think before you comment.

    Stand up and hold them accountable. They are elected to serve in our best interest. I’m tired of them bringing the message they want us to hear. Ask the questions, request accountability, query how OUR money is spent, find out and assess their plans.

    The power lies with the people. Once we demand better standards and better representation eventually that is what we will get. Stop settling for less!

      I listened. I heard the conversation. The NDP At-Large candidate who hosted together with his Chairman tried to cut her off a few times with the host/moderator speaking through his nose in that silly accent he uses when he's in front of a microphone. I was embarrassed for her, for them and for our country. Sick; sickening...

      Flood or hurricane, they should not have turned away help regardless of where it was coming from. Pride is going to kill a lot of us

        What, since when we come beggars in this country? The old dirty food they were bringing had in poison to kill 1,000 of us. Up to this day you still trusting the British to feed you? For God sake go plant food and eat the coconuts and bananas that fell down during the storm. Feed yourself, buddy.

    I endorsed all that the caller said on the radio. Hon. Ronnie Skelton said it boldly when he urged the voters not to allow the NDP to fool them. When he said that he is talking from experience. Hon. Archie Christian said and I quote, "Ïf I had known the truth from the Premier, I would have voted differently iin the HOA"It is time for the voters unite and vote out the NDP.

    For almost four years the people on Virgin Gorda and other islands were at the mercy of the government. However, as the election is approaching they are coming to seek the voters support so that they will return to the House of Assembly. I do hope that there will be a new party in government and the natives of the BVI will enjoy a better life.

      What Big Ron running from the party after he lost the race for chairmanship absolves him from all that he took part in for the last EIGHT YEARS? Is he honest RON indeed? Nobody is gonna be hoodwinked by his slight or switch? Aloo!

    I commend that caller for being big and bold, as all the rest of us should be. Long overdue.

    This group who give the impression that the represent the family are far from it. It my case, we see our district rep around election time seeking votes, then not again until the next election is close. Sadly, only a certain section of my district are attended to by that individual. I guess the numbers in my area are too small to get their attention.

    Like countless residents, I got wiped out during the 2017 hurricanes, and it appears at least to me like the government of the day went into hibernation. In my highly compromised state, I have yet to see one rep, even driving in my area. My representative's presence was sadly lacking, and up to this day they did not ask me how I fared it although they see me all the time. Where is the empathy and compassion?

    Now them going be up in our faces seeking votes. Give me a break! Enough is enough. I have news for them this guava crop.

    I often feel so sorry for our sister islands. I felt worse after listening to the lady who called in as well as the gentleman who calls often from Jost Van Dyke to vent and ask questions. Too often the other islands' needs, basic and otherwise, are neglected. This is sad. Every island should get equal attention and proper representation.
