FAT HOG’S BAY, Tortola, VI – Tola Radio VI panelist Dameon Percival has slammed the Government of Dr the Hon Natalio D. Wheatley (R7) and accused the Premier of intentionally avoiding answering questions in the House of Assembly, along with delaying sittings of the House.

“I keep telling y'all the current premier wants to be like the former premier and he learned well,” Percival said on the Monday, July 10, 2023, edition of ‘Da Morning Braff’ radio show with host Floyd Burnett aka "Heritage'. 

HoA Q&A now last thing on Order Paper - Percival 

“So what they are doing in the House constantly, you know, especially since he's thinking Premiership, is they're putting the Question and Answer segment to the end of the sitting and what we're finding is they're using every opportunity in the book to delay the sitting of the House,” Percival claimed.

Mr Percival added that the government legislators avoided sittings to even attend a recent graduation ceremony where they were not even on the programme.

Percival said at the graduation, legislators gave speeches ‘to tell people to remember who get you here,” he told the listening audience.  

Opposition at fault too - Percival 

He added that at other times, government legislators are traveling all over the world and doing everything they can to not do the work of the people. 

Percival blamed the Opposition for what is happening in the House which he also labeled as ‘pussy footing’ around the Question and Answer segment, “When you look at the list of questions, these are important questions that would reveal important information to the people of this territory.”

Percival also slammed speaker Corine N. George-Massicote for what he said was allowing Premier Dr the Hon Wheatley to control the House.

    This has been going on for many years, so the question is what is the root of the problem? The issue is the standing orders needs amending to allow a longer period of time for questions to be submitted to allow the public officers to get the answers. To get one hundred questions submitted ten days before the House meeting makes it impossible to get all the answers in time so this will continue no matter who is the Premier.

    More questions need to be asked about the Governor so the people can see the poor job he is doing with subjects under his responsibility and then the people will be able to hold him accountable. We are too busy just fighting each other and giving him a free pass.

      This is what is wrong with us. Today it’s Dameon tomorrow it could be you or I. It might not be our house, it might be something much more devastating. I pray to GOD that you my dear may never know how it feels to have everything you have ever worked for be threatened. I pray I never have that feeling of desperation and worry that someone in Dameon’s position would feel, and you should do the same for yourself and your loved ones.

    House of Assembly needs to put aside a Sitting just for Statements by Ministers and Questions from the floor. This will allow a quota on the number of questions as the Sitting can be every two months. Also allow 15 days for submittal of questions so adequate time can be given to Ministers to have the public servants research and get thorough and accurate answers in time.

    Big man you just did the same thing Fahie did when he finessed the public funds for the SSB Project as you finessed the general public to donate funds so you could keep your house. How big of a hypocrite can you be and still turn around and speak about the now premier in comparison to the old one. You're no different. Disgust that this man still has a voice over the radio waves.

Mr. Percival, please continue to speak the truth. One day they will wake up, I hope it is not too late. Ladies and Gentlemen, if you LOVE this country you must be smart and honest. Yeah the VIP is the Government and whether you love them or not, if they are not doing RIGHT by we, we must CALL them out. So speak to the Government and tell them do RIGHT by the public otherwise we all are going to call them out. AND IT IS NOT PERSONAL!!!!!!

    Stop chatting nonsense, saying outlandish things to garner temporary attention and pity. Dr. Hon Premier Natalio Wheatley and disgraced former Premier Andrew A. Fahie are two different people. Sowande is sensible enough to look at Fahie tenure and learn any good things from it and can the bad to the dung heap where it belongs. If we don’t nothing sensible to say shut the hell up. There is much to debate so I’m with the Rush Limbaugh example of outrageous commentary. Let’s make our comments valuable, not the butt of jokes. I’m sure the show is not comedy hour. We want to tune and have positive take aways.
