BAUGHERS BAY, Tortola, VI - Social Commentator Claude O. Skelton-Cline said while he believes the current National Democratic Party (NDP) Chairman and Minister for Health and Social Development, Hon Marlon A. Penn (R8), may become the Premier at some point in the future, that time is not in 2023.

Mr Skelton-Cline was at the time speaking during the January 17, 2023, edition of his Honestly Speaking radio talk show on ZBVI 780AM.

“I think at some point in the future, Honourable Marlon A. Penn may very well become a Premier of this country, but in this current climate of crisis and chaos, I don't think he is that kind of leader,” Skelton-Cline said. 

He said the names he proposed as possible Premiers of the VI offer a better level of experience and skill that the VI is in need of at its current juncture of navigating the Commission of Inquiry recommendations.

“This is why I'm putting forward a name such as Ronnie W. Skelton and Dr Kedrick Pickering, who are tried, tested, some steady familiar hands with some life experience and wisdom, who can bring to bear what needs to be brought to bear,” he said.

Consider me independent- Skelton-Cline 

Meanwhile, the man of the cloth added that he does not believe in the VI’s current political climate and party politics and is therefore considering himself an independent.

“Let me put it on the record. It is probably best to describe me as an independent politically. Some of you will get a kick out of that...”

Skelton-Cline remarked that while has been on both sides in the last three elections and has helped both sides to victory, he will best describe himself as an independent moving forward.

“ So I love all of you because all of you are my brothers and sisters and I don't see that part facetiously either,” he remarked.

      A person like CKC seems like a person who never got the love and secure feeling he needed as a child. There is something not quite right with him trying to seek attention no matter the embarrassment or the cost of other people's feelings.

    nice idea skeleton: now gather all of your fellow talk show host and social media fanatics:

    if the people of the lands have confidence in any of you talkshow host or social media host come elect day you will be successful

    year after year and all of those countless hours of talk have not amounted to nothing positive for the territory, other than gossip and slander

    Please put up or shut up and put some of the talking into action “talkers progressive party” skeleton as chairman

    Oh my God!!! What is it with this professional false prophet? A prophet is characterized by his prophecies coming to pass. Not too long ago he said he had a prophesy and that a woman would be the next Premier, and even had the nerve to name the woman. My God! election has not been held talk less about woman being premier, but this man has the gull to continue belching bubbles and talking about those men that he has now mentioned. Now if your prophecy is true that a woman will be the next Premier, are these men going to be trans gender? Is there something you know and not telling us the whole story? Well, my take is, according to your prophecy, they would have to be transgender before they become Premier. Otherwise, go sit down and shut-up. Stop spilling all this rubbish around the place. Respect yourself so that others can respect you.
