ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI -The biggest surprise from all indication is the defeat of the controversial former Legislator, Myron V. Walwyn. He moved from the 2015 elections getting the most votes (5777) to coming in fifth in 2019 where he lost by over 600 votes.

Mr Walwyn contested the 2019 General Elections as the Leader of the National Democratic Party 1 (NDP1) and became one of the most hated figures in the Territory.

He was first elected in 2011 and used most of his time in office to go after persons and businesses he did not like including the media and built up a small group of people who were loyal to him. 

On the positive side, he helped many persons and was a politician you could find on the streets. He left office under investigation for a small wall he built around the Elmore Stoutt High School (ESHS) costing some $1.6 M.

NDP losers

Another loser from the 2019 election was independent candidate, Dr Kedirck D. Pickeirng.  He left the NDP 1, but never explained to the people why he left. He served for 20 years 1999-2019.

One termer Dr Hubert R. O’Neal after trying for years to win a seat never appeared to be fighting for his people. It was said that after the Hurricanes Irma and Maria he could not be found and that allowed representative elect Mr Vincent O. Wheatley to outshine him.

Another loser was Chairman of the Progressive Virgin Islands Movement (PVIMP-NDP 2) Mr Ronnie W. Skelton.  Many voters punished him for not leaving the corrupt NDP 1 earlier and he will now retire from public office.

While he was not an incumbent, Wade N. Smith the former Comptroller of Customs is also seen as another loser, as some claim the seat was to be won by him following the efforts of his increased registration drive.

    Some of these so called losers cut their own throats with their tongue. Some people just don't think. They say some of the most foolish things at the wrong time. Always keep your campaign talk positive. You don't know who you may offend with negative slurs. When it comes to PVIM that campaign was straight up kindergarten...Bob the Builder...give me a break. Next time don't put a boy to do a man's job. Some others sadly.." stop live like crab in a barrel...dem deh life no work at all." Unity builds a nation.

      @ The Truth: I agree with your blog: the childish level of political talk under those campaign tents was mind blowing: we live in progressing society and all political conversations should manifest forward thanking and not slanderous old-talk

      Ronnie's name was the Builder by PVIM. Its Myron who called him Bob the Builder. His loss had nothing to do with his title and every thing to do with voting for change and he was seen as part of the problem that needed to be changed. He could not shed the NDP light and that has been accepted. I think PVIM did the best they could in two months. It was an almost impossible task but at least it was tried. Ronnie and Kedrick get to go home in peace and with their pension immediately from being ministers. That's not bad after twenty years, personally.

    Thank you Sir for the great transformation that you have done to the education system and so many other areas of this country. Education is the best foundation we can give our children... sadly on my some recognise that.
    You have a brilliant mind, please stay focus and continue to help our youths. You're an an inspiration to so many of us and our children, that's I want to say WELL DONE !. It's also sad that your ability and patriotism to this country where you're a citizen of, is being questioned based on your parents roots. When I look at what victory over you is measured by, it's very hilarious. One day I will like to say a few things to you in person but for now, HAT'S OFF TO YOU! (:
    And God's blessings on all your future endeavors.

    Mr. Walwyn

    Thankyou for giving up your seat. Now the school children could go home after school. Now we could get back a library for our people to use. We may even get back our money (1.7 million). The 2 brandnew buildings at ESHS which fell down could be accounted for. HLSCC could get a raise in salary (7 years without) The government could put back the money cut from the college budget for years. Toilet paper and chalk......
    I will stop there.
