ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Sixth District Representative and Opposition Member, Honourable Alvera Maduro-Caines (R6) has given the public all assurance that she does in fact work; and provided proof by posting an office 'selfie' on the popular social network website, Facebook.

The photo posted on November 19, 2019, has since accumulated a number of likes and comments and bears the caption, 'Just in case you're wondering, Yes, I do work and loving it."

It featured the Sixth District Representative in an executive style chair with office furniture and documents visible in the background.   

'Where is the work?' 

When questioned by one curious Facebook onlooker, on "where is the work?", Hon Maduro-Caines replied, "you aint see z6ne on the move. Only the haters blind."

However, it remains unclear why the representative would see the need to make such a post. At the September 2, 2019, continuation of the Sixth Sitting of the First Session of the Fourth HoA, Hon Maduro-Caines famously told the House that her District was starting to look like a dump.

“We in District 6 have been plagued by the parking of equipment and boat trailers and boats all over the district… It’s time that they stop making the 6th District look like a dumping area,” she said.

Forgive Debts 

More recently, at a press conference called by the Opposition on November 13, 2019, Hon Maduro-Caines had called for debts to be forgiven over Crafts Alive vendors owing the ‘City’ in excess of half a million dollars. 

“Yes a lot of them owe a lot of money but a payment plan that some have asked for is virtually impossible to be paid at that time because some have been given a three-month period to pay off six thousand and ten thousand dollars and I can’t see that happening,” she said. 

Putting herself into the shoes of the vendors, Hon Maduro-Caines noted, “I myself wouldn’t be able to do it with my salary so I could imagine the state that they are in at this time."

      If you were indeed a 6 Voter, you would know that her office is in the House of Assembly Office in the Richard Stoutt Building, across from the Immigration Department where you have to go at least once a year to renew your time.

      When you say younger than "you". Who EXACTLY are you referring to? The person who you IMAGINE is typing a comment? Cause you cant see the person's face so its crazy how you can make that comparison so boldly.

    Alvera, I share your pains, but you really think the Sixth District look like a dump, take a drive through the Forth especially from the Sunday Morning Well to Spinks Bakery, it’s an eyesore, derelict vehicles, boats, trailers, containers, concrete mixers, you name it, all block up the side walk, no where for pedestrians to walk, they have to be skipping through traffic. It’s terrible and needs to be looked into seriously.

      The 4th, she doesn't even visit up Belle vue....there's a road that leads from the main road down the hill that cuts out by the Day Care with the yellow wall before you reach down Joyce Samuel Primary School and its blocked by a old bus and a piece of blue Nissan car. Why are they allowed to block a public road, could it be because they are her friends/voters?

How much did u manage to save from the envelopes he use to hand out? Good thing the house and wall was there before... if the road is block how the people how live down there been passing all these years? I think u need to go block your mother door to slow down the traffic that passes through....

    An old farmer was getting his hand stitched up after an accident at his cattle farm.

    He and the doctor start into conversation, which leads into politics.

    The old farmer explained, "Well, as I see it, most politicians are 'Post Turtles'."

    Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked what a 'post turtle' was. The old farmer explained as best he could, "When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle on top, that's a 'post turtle.'

    The doctor remained puzzled. The farmer continued further.

    "You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while up there, he's elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of dumb arse put him there to begin with."

      This one made my day - Lolll.

      Even the doc supposedly more educated than the farmer didn't know what a post turtle was and to be truthful I didn't know either. Just goes to show that at times the uneducated are more educated than the educated

    Sitting in an office with executive looking furniture does not mean that one is working. This is photo op and says nada; neither proving nor disproving that work is being done. Work should speak for itself with results, outcomes....etc. This is pure nonsense and a Brer Nansi story. Go do the people wuk.
