FAT HOGS BAY, Tortola, VI– Social Commentator Kaream K. Pickering aka 'Picko Moff' has accused Opposition Member Hon Carvin Malone (AL) of trying to look good in the House of Assembly (HoA) in a bid to get re-elected at the 2023 general elections in the Virgin Islands (VI).

Mr Pickering was at the time speaking as a telephone guest on the popular International Morning Braff Show on Tola Radio VI 100.5 FM with host Floyd Burnett aka 'Heritage' on Monday, September 26, 2022.

House shuts down motion brought by Hon Malone  

On September 21, 2022, the Government side of the House shut down a motion brought by Hon Carvin Malone (AL) for amendments to the Terms of Reference (ToR) of the Constitutional Review Commission.

The proposed amendments, which included term limits for legislators and turning two other sister islands into districts, thereby reducing the At Large seats to two in the HoA, were brought during the Continuation of the Sixth Sitting of the Fourth Session of the Fourth House of Assembly at Save the Seed Energy Centre in Duff's Bottom, however, they were all rejected by the House on September 21, 2022.

Hon Malone had only received support in the House from Opposition Leader Hon Julian Fraser RA (R3).

Other proposals for amendments also called for consideration of the referendum and a timeline for becoming a unitary sovereign democratic state with the King as Head of State and the nomination of a local Governor General to be considered and a way to recall elected legislators, shifting the responsibility of the civil service, and whether the post of Deputy Premier and Premier should be determined from At-Large candidacy. 

Mr Pickering, speaking on the show, however, questioned the motives of Hon Malone to bring the motion to the House while in the Opposition. 

Hon Malone wants to look good- Picko Moff 

“Malone was in a position of power… and he ain't bring forth nothing to benefit us, but all of a sudden now?” he questioned.

When questioned if he would support legislative changes to VI, he added, “Of course, I would support but I don’t want Malone to pull the wool over our eyes to make it look like he is some god-sent person,” Pickering said while saying that the former minister was not fighting for the people of the VI.

“Malone wants to look good now so he can be reelected, don’t let this man pull no wool over y'all eye. He was in a position of power next to Andrew Fahie [Hon Andrew A. Fahie] and everything that they bring forward none of it was for us,” he added.

Meanwhile, 'Picko Moff' said if it were up to him to bring reform to the VI, he would remove all of the current representatives in the House except for Unity Government Minister for Health and Social Development, Hon Marlon A. Penn (R8).

Mr Pickering; however, did not give a reason for his radical proposal to change the membership of the House.

    Mr. Pickering may choose to question Hon. Malone's motives - that's his right, but I certainly agree with the recommendation to introduce term limits for legislators!

      Exactly my point , that whether you like him or not .Hon. Malone can LEAD. He has the executive as well as legislative experience for the position and a balanced, well rounded approach. No one will be left behind with Hon. Malone even his detractors.

    With some people you damn if you do and you damn if you don’t. All politicians should “want to look good so they could be the-ejected.”

    People like Pico talk just to hear themselves.

        Everyone use to think Sir Noel Lloyd was crazy until we could build on Wickham's Cay. If some people only can see as far as their nose they would never be able to see all possibility there is to attain in life.

    Are you so blinded by hate and vile that you don't have a spirit of forgiveness? You can't give the man a chance? Why do you want to kill th3 messenger when the message is perfect and exactly what this country needs?

    All the times you cheated on the Immigration officer, till she beat up other women she caught you with but she still forgave you and still with you. If she could forgive you and give you many chances to prove yourself then you can forgive CM too!

    Forgive us our tr3spasses as we forgive those that tr3spass against us.
