    BVI leaders had better pay close attention. The USVI has no intentions of assisting the BVI with a thing. What the BVI needs assistance with has to come from Federal, the USVI leaders are looking out for themselves so BVI better do the same and stop being fooled.

      Try and comprehend before expelling criticism. It was what can be done in collaboration within the growth and development of Our Virgin Islands. USVI/BVI WE ALL ARE ONE!
