ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Moments ago, June 15, 2022, former Minister for Health and Social Development turned backbencher with the formation of the National Unity Government Hon Carvin Malone (AL) has announced he has crossed the floor to the Opposition.

Hon Malone, at a press conference still ongoing, said it was in the best interest of himself and the territory, based on his views that may conflict with that of the Unity Government, that he resigns from the coalition government.

With Hon Malone joining Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition, it brings the number to two. Hon Julian Fraser RA was the lone Opposition Member.

    So where is Mark? He's not in the Unity Government and he not in the Opposition? Hmmm. What a travesty! There is no honesty involved here. You all want to kill poor Cindy for saying what she heard.

    The political system called democracy needs a credible opposition, if not, it will prove that it not true democracy, but dishonest pretence posing as a unit y government.
    As I see things, in reference to political power play normally practiced by BVI politicians Carvin Malone is equal to others that have done the same. At the lease, he has showed that the so-called unity government is not unified, as was claimed by Hon Dr. Natalio Sajande.
    Others too may soon joined with Hon. J. Frazer nor Hon. Carvin Malone may be the next Premier, but the BVI opposition do need to be factually strengthened.
    If not, good governance will be a only wishful dream of the human mind. not a true functionable reality in the BVI.

    The political truth has been written.

    This Unity Government is just a tape over a bad sore that is all ready festering and smelling stink. Soon gangrene is going to set in and later the person dies.

    We need election now to help save the life of this country - or soon we will be under Direct Rule

    Correction please;: It is possible that neither Hon Julian Frazer Nor Hon.Carvin Malone the next BVI Premier, but we need a credible opposition on place.
    Accept this truth. The self proclaimed unity government is not unified as one.
    The UK has a credible political oposition team. Same does the British Virgin Islands, but good governance is a vital need as soon as possible.
