CAPOON’S BAY, Tortola, VI – As the days turn to hours before the commencement of Advance Polling tomorrow Friday June 5, 2015 and Election Day on Monday June 8, 2015, senior member of the Virgin Islands Party (VIP) and incumbent candidate for the First District Honourable Andrew A. Fahie upped the pressure with a bombardment of the National Democratic Party on their stewardship over the last term.

At a rally last night, June 3, 2015 in Capoon’s Bay, Honourable Fahie urged that on Monday the time for change would have come and urged persons not to give up hope. Speaking for just over an hour, Honourable Fahie warned persons against giving into cynicism as this is what the other side wants in order to continue what they are doing.

“They want you to remain cynical so that they can take from the cookie jar when you’re not paying attention. As a matter of fact they have gone away with the whole cookie jar!” he said.

Honourable Fahie has long accused the NDP Government as being the most corrupt in the history of the VI and he has not backed down from this assertion despite heavy criticisms and personal attacks from persons within the NDP.

He appealed to those feeling hopeless not to give up on hope and on the future and that of their children and children’s children.

“Monday’s vote is a high stakes election. So proudly inform all that on Monday June 8 we going green in 2015. Bad can only continue if good people do nothing,” he said.

He expressed the hope that the goodness of God enlightens the people on June 5th and June 8th so that the people of the VI can be free again.

“Free to dream, free to hope, free to live, free from victimisation, free from vindication, free from organised character assassinations, free from political bullying, free from arrogant and dictatorial like leadership, free from fear, free from a Government living in your pockets, free from a Government living from your pockets, free to speak to anyone whether they support your political party or not, free from a government who is competing with us rather than protecting us in a number of areas,” he said.

Moral failures

He said that among the many failures of the NDP is its moral failing…failing to look out “for the weak among us, failing to give the meek of the earth a chance to inherit this part of the earth, stealing from those who have and transferring it to the well connected through [questionable] contracts is not only politically unfair but morally impounding.”

        Don't worry, the NDP supporters can go out dressed in their party T-shirts as they like and they will never be threaten with disciplinary action but the VIP supports are so scared so the chairs are empty but don't worry, when the results are publish on the night of June 8, a lot of people will be left to wonder if empty chairs can vote

    A cookie is a treat, a snack, something extra. It bothers me that our politicians think that the government check book is a cookie jar filled with snacks, treats and extra. I dont want promises of better handling of treats i need the practice to stop.

    What i want to hear from Hon Fahie and the VIP is not how corrupt the NDP is, but rather what tools and safe guards we care going to put in place to stop every one from putting there hand in the cookie jar.

    There are a list of reforms that can be done to stem the tide of corruption. What powers are you willing to take away from the minister when it comes to committing govt funds, a public register of assets for all members of the house and immediate family regardless if they are doing work with govt or not.

    IF NDP gone with everything, how in the world VIP plan to finance all these projects (housing/water parks/all increments paid/no firing of civil servants/8% increase on civil servants pay etc...)

    If we to believe you that the NDP gone with everything that means it has no money to do all these things that your party say they will do....

    Reason NDP has so many at rally's is they paying them to show. You haven't noticed. Each district same set of NDP supporters. Take a close look when you see pictures and watch on JTv. You will be amazed.

    NDP politrics.

    NDP claim to have $90 million in reserves. If this is the case why they looking loans everywhere. Don't they know the less debt they carry makes them look good in the international community. If I had $90 and wanted to buy something for $30 I'd just go in my bank account and grab the money. I'm not seeking loan. Who

      Two weeks? VIP elected Julian Fraser a whole year ago as Chairman. Andrew started the political season in January when he called NDP the most corrupt Government ever. GO sit down, VIP are useless and will lose badly. 3 seats max. Fraser said himself, no room for inexperience and green people. NDP been running this and doing a good job. See you next Tuesday.
