‘UK has no confidence in NDP Administration’—Carvin Malone

ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- The United Kingdom (UK) Government “has no confidence in our local government, the National Democratic Party (NDP) Government.” This was posited by former President of the Virgin Islands Party (VIP) and businessman Carvin Malone on Tuesday, July 3, 2018, during his appearance on radio show ‘Honestly Speaking’ with Claude O. Skelton-Cline.

Mr. Malone was at the time responding to questions as to his thoughts on the stalled recovery, post Hurricanes Irma and Maria. According to Mr Malone, it is “the Politics of Recovery.”

He stated that it was clear to him that the UK Government lacks confidence in the NDP.
Reference was made to an incident in 2012 when Minister for Education and Culture, and Chairman of the NDP, the Honourable Myron V. Walwyn (AL), at a House of Assembly sitting declared that the “Premier, Smith had them [UK Government] eating out of the palm of his hands.”

At that very same sitting, the Minister for Communications and Works, Hon. Mark H. Vanterpool (R4) said “they, the UK trust us; they trust our Premier that is why they approved the $15 million dollar loan that had been held up under the previous government.”

Trust? Not NDP
Commenting on the issue, radio host Mr Skelton-Cline said “here we are six years later…and it’s ironic, if not tragic, certainly for the people of these Virgin Islands that we are the ones being eaten for lunch and our recovery is stalled because the UK…their actions have exhibited no confidence in—nor trust—in this NDP Government.”

Mr. Malone conceded with those sentiments, stating that the reason for the stalled recovery is that the “United Kingdom is denying this government access to any funding from every source that is deemed to be for the recovery and development. Hence, the need for the Agency to have been legally established and up and running.”
New Leader still a failure

Mr. Skelton-Cline further questioned Mr Malone as to whether he believes this Government can “cure what they have made wrong”, and whether the change in leadership will aid in this cause. In response, the past V.I.P President stated that there is “no evidence that they could, “ adding “that is a failed experiment.”
Honestly Speaking is a radio programme aired every Tuesday from 5PM to 6PM live on ZBVI 780 AM.

    The problem with the Bvi. The problem with the bvi is that people will not question the go__rn_men_ because they talk like us they are from here like us.

Coustomer servic_ is terrible because they think I f__m here so I do as I want. Guess what? Tourist are noticing that. They are going to other places. Some __ople get in positions and get _way doing certain things because of their _ast n__es. Things are being d__e und__ ha__ded yet no no_ne sees this the g__ern_me__ does unfair th___gs but one day this will all come to _ight. C____ption run these sma__ is___ds everyone talk under their breathe to one and gossip about these things but are afraid to _ay any___g. This is not dem_cra__. This is exactly why the b__ will n___r prosper. In your hearts you know whats going on but fear the ____rment. One__y it shall come to ___gt.

    Are you seriously asking a VIP member if he thinks our current Government can cure what wrong they made and expect an HONEST answer.

    Come on now. We all know what the response would be.

    HONESTLY SPEAKING, we need to give a whole new party of community minded people a chance to prove themselves. Both VIP and NDP has failed this territory but if I had to choose between the two, it would be NDP, only because I believe those NDP members who will remain for the upcoming elections will have the experience and current knowlwdge to correct what wrongs they have made.

    PS. How soon we forget - It was not that long ago, the UK did not have confidence in the VIP government either.
