‘Family members are off limits’, says Fahie after attack on rival’s wife

Fahie

Following the circulation of a malicious text attacking NDP chairman Myron Walwyn’s wife, Judith, VIP leader Andrew Fahie has ran to her defence.

“I categorically denounce this kind of attack on Mrs Judith Walwyn,” Fahie said in a post on social media Friday. “We in the political arena can agree to disagree but family members are off limits.”

Fahie denounced attack stating that he knows, firsthand, how hurtful such messages can be to family members on ‘the receiving end’.

“My wife has suffered also at the hands of unnamed, unknown persons who hide in the shadows and malign individuals. I can say here and now, family members are off-limits and have no place in the political discourse,” said Fahie who is widely perceived as the political arch-rival of Minister Walwyn.

He continued: “I believe that in the interest of the territory it behoves me to urge all that are in the political arena to conduct themselves accordingly. Let us stick to the issues and solutions. Let us conduct ourselves with respect. This type of disrespectful conduct has no place in our politics.”

His statements come amid similar ones for Deputy Governor David Archer, Jr who has reminded persons of the political code of conduct that is in effect for political parties, candidates, and their supporters.

      While the political arena in the BVI has taken a disgraceful turn, i would agree that children of politians should be off limits, as they shouldn’t fall prey to their parents choices. The spouse on the other hand (if her husband is the party leader) has the potential to become the next first lady and for that reason she is not off limits. She would most likely to accompany her husband in formal engagements while he is representing the territory. It is for those reasons her every move will be scrutinized.

        If she herself is not a politrician or have never been convicted of a crime why should she be dragged into the discourse between her husband and his rivals.
        Do you want your opponents talking ill of your family who have nothing to do with your disagreement.
        The issues and how they will fix things are what needs to be the concern of all.

    Im so sick and fed up of all the nonsense! Who ever is behind all this mess is very cunning…and is obviously looking for sympathy from the people of the BVI. Quit with all the nonsense…all these ploys to win votes is unbecoming. Your track record condemns you, no one needs to attack you or your camp….Please stop the madness already. Tricks are for kids. The people too experienced to be taken for for a ride Hurry people let’s drain the swamp…VIP all the way!!! T

    There should be no attack period. The Virgin forefathers were not involved in such bad behavior. All the so called want to be leaders who telling and paying people to find dirt on other people need to be disqualified from running for election.

      You all need to stop ah p**s. why the de hell would anybody sacrifice and destroy their family and themselves in this manner.. Myron need to get to bottom of this expose them backside and shut them to h**l up..

  16. Lawyer says:

    If Myron wife was from Tortola nothing would have been said about her in such distasteful and disrespectful way. Be careful VIP. Like the USVI, the face of the BVI is slowly changing. The people are moving forward into the future. You are still stuck in the past. More Virgin Islanders have family ties outside of the Virgin Islands. So be careful how you try to divide the people. We are all “Island men and women”! One BVI, Forward, Together We Are Stronger.
