ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – On the 2020 anniversary eve of the National Democratic Party (NDP) being brutally ousted from Government in the February 25, 2019 General Elections, former legislator, Mr Myron V. Walwyn continues to show change in stark contrast to his aggressive demeanour showcased during the 2019 elections season.

Today, February 24, 2020 in a Facebook post to his online followers, the Ex-Chairman of the NDP reflected on past regrets, noting that while those regrets may seem like mistakes, they could eventually set you on the course to greatness.

Regrets shape your destiny

“Do you have regrets in life? In retrospect, that thing that you thought was a mistake, a failure or a bad decision might have been by design to set you on the path to your destiny,” he said.

Mr Walwyn's change of heart and reflection comes following criticisms that he remains one of the most divisive and controversial politicians in the history of the Virgin Islands (VI).

On January 27, 2020, Walwyn urged his followers, “We have so much more in common than what differences we have. We should all make a greater effort to live better together. Put the jealousy and envy aside. Put the prejudices aside. Put the malicious behaviour aside.”

During the 2019 election season, Mr Walwyn was accused of running one of the most divisive political campaigns in the history of VI politics; allegedly putting locals against foreigners, locals against locals and even attacking close diplomatic neighbours like the United States Virgin Islands (USVI).

‘Mistakes make you wiser’ – Walwyn

Now, according to the legislator, “Sometimes you have to be taken off your current course in order to get to where you really should be. Mistakes, misfortunes and failure make you wiser, stronger and teaches empathy and humility.”

He said those are all important qualities individuals need to take them on the path of God. “So, don’t wallow in the valley of regrets, it’s a colossal waste of time and energy. Learn from whatever happened and move on with absolutely no regrets,” he said.

Political pundits speculate that Mr Walway’s recent ramblings are attempts to re-win the hearts of Virgin Islanders after they rejected his divisive ideologies and removed him from the House of Assembly (HoA) in 2019.

He was recently under investigation for an alleged corrupt $1.6M wall project commissioned for the Elmore Stoutt High School (ESHS) during his tenure as Education Minister.

According to the Commissioner of Police, Mr Michael B. Matthews, the investigation file is currently in the hands of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) to determine if there is sufficient evidence for criminal prosecution.

    Anyone who having, like Michael Jackson sings, "The man in the mirror"; takes the time to roll back the tape in time, analyse and ponder their acts, deeds, decisions, is a person of strong Character. Everyone, admittedly is capable of being the "Nice person that he/she really is. Like Electricity and Sunlight that can warm us or burn us, human beings are capable of displaying their trueness. The late great Cyril Romney, when told during his last political run against the also late Hon. Ethlyn Smith in the 5th district, that he would loose to Hon. Smith, was a bit defiant; but then paused and ask the question; Why...and who said so?. He was told that he was though of as a "S O A B". He humorously with a big broad smile fired back uttering: "but I'm a likable S O A B". lol . Power to Mr. Myron. He is I'm certain, has the leadership skills and his "get the job done Now", to be a remarkable Leader. My 2 cents. I could easily support him

      When Myron ran last election it affected me badly. I never knew there was so much hate in the BVI. One don't have to run for politics to be great. There are lots off other ways to good and be great.

      I will also support him if he make a come back. To all you negative people just remember, if something is for you, no matter what you say or how you feel about a person nothing can stop it. I detect people is starting to run scared. I agree, Myron will win back his seat easy.

    Happy to hear that he has learned his lesson and he is wiser. Never. Never. Turn your back on your people. The people who fought for you lift you up when you were down.. U will be course. The people will abandoned you. That's exactly what happened....With this reality check I can see him making a come back and winning back his seat in 2023... All of VIP atlarge candidates who I supported turn out to be weak...I'm not impressed...

    Character assassination based on hate runs deep in the veins of so many of BVIslanders . However , there are also decent and dignified people on both sides of the fence . This hatred and poisonous sputum issued for one reason but ( he was born here ) is so ingrained that they behave and act in irrational ways . The hate directed at Myron is so intense even though the CXC static’s is there to prove the improvements made in Education is buried under the dirt of pure hatred . Shame on some of you . You would be consumed by your own hate . Myron I have never seen anybody go above when they start to pull you down . They must always go underneath you to do so . What a
