PURCELL ESTATE, Tortola, VI – Chairman of the National Democratic Party (NDP 1), Hon Myron V. Walwyn (AL), says his opponents are scared and hence, now employing divisive and low tactics to undermine his party in their bid to win the 2019 General Elections in the Virgin Islands (VI).

“Unprecedented Nastiness” is how the embattled NDP 1 Minister for Education and Culture describe the tactics of his opponents who employ the use of memes and WhatsApp messages to plant seeds of doubt.

Seeds of Doubt

“Oh mischief thou are swift to enter the thoughts of desperate men,” he said, noting that the NDP team has seen the actions of desperate persons over the past few weeks.

“Using memes on WhatsApp and other divisive tools to plant seeds of doubts and fear in the minds of you the good voters of the Virgin Islands,” he told those gathered at the Purcell Estate campaign launch of Hon Alvera Maduro-Caines on Thursday, February 8, 2019.

“Many of them live in glass houses but seems to be obsessed with throwing stones. The downright unprecedented nastiness coming from our opponents is out [of] step with the tradition of BVI politics,” Mr Walwyn uttered.

He said that it is also out of step with the character and values of the VI voters, “Values that emphasize civility and mutual respect.”

We Are a Small Community – Walwyn

“Never mind our disagreements or how we may feel about each other, at the end of the day we are a small community related to each other in countless instances and after this election, we all still have to live here and co-operate with each other,” he said.

‘Let me make it clear I am still in the race, I cannot recall seeing Mark Vanterpool crying and as the Chairman of the NDP, I will lead this party into election victory on February 25,” he said emphatically while indirectly referencing a post circulating on social media saying that he Walwyn has withdrawn from the 2019 political race.

“I know that our opponents are scared, I know that they believe that the key to election victory is to get me and Mark Vanterpool out of the way, I know that. But I urge you the people to send a strong message to them on Election Day that the people of the Virgin Islands do not appreciate their reckless, callous and disrespectful behaviour,” Mr Walwyn warned.

Critics and Political pundits have long accused the NDP 1 Party of division, disrespect, dishonesty plus lacking accountability and transparency over its 8-year rule over the VI. “We (NDP 1) will not go home until the people of the BVI says it’s time for us to go home,” Mr Walwyn affirmed.

      He should be the last one to talk. Walywn is the king of divisiveness and nastiness. People know who you are Walwyn - dont worry, you will get what is coming to you. Whatever is done is darkness will come to light. You are a bully, underhanded, deceitful and cunning - be sure your sins will find you out and all those who are collaborating with you Mr Walwyn. You just wait and see...............

    It is funny how politics really make strange bedfellows!. Sandy Underhill - you recall when you were at the ESHS and whenever Walwyn did something that you did not agree with - remember you use to talk to members of staff about him - do you remember! You people are something else. All of the NDP needs to be put in barrel to claw their way out and we will see who will survive......... Strange bedfellows. I for one will be voting on election day and do my part to get away from corruption.

    Cry baby stop complaining. Stick to the issues: where is the 7.2 million? The 8.0 million? The 31.0 million the 64.0 million? Tell us about these things on the campaign trail. Election 2019 must be more than old talk and fancy posters.
    We want our money back!

      By your post it seems you're suggesting that Walwyn was the premier of these territory for the past eight years. Well if that's the new standard can we also ask Mr. Fahie and Mr. Fraser to account for everything the party did wrong when VIP was in power. And, and don't forget to ask the same question to Mr. Skelton of the PVIM. Oh but I know you won't. It's not in your DNA to be fair isn't it? Lol

    This man got some darn nerves. Disrespectful behaviour he does not like. Hmmm. He probably have convenient amnesia. He disrespected the Premier, the Governor, The Auditor General and the status quo. The ilk of this Lamblike Beast.

    1. What are we really trying to accomplish?
    2. Is it really country above self?
    We all have been in some sort of a relationship before. We also know that newly formed relationships usually for the better part works almost perfectly until a big toe is stepped on then all hell break lose. The word “forgiveness” and the phrase “lets work it out” are regrettably neglected. I believe this is what has unfortunately happened not only within the NDP Govt. Time won’t permit me to explain in full details like I would want to but hopefully one day we can “chat”. Persons who seek to be elected or re-elected for that matter MUST put country above self in ALL aspect of governing the Territory and indeed work BETTER TOGETHER because we are definitely BETTER and STRONGER TOGETHER! This is the only way to move our Territory FORWARD!
