I don’t respect the way Premier had me fired

This BVI News photo captures Christian speaking to members of the media about being fired as Junior Minister of Tourism on Thursday, November 15.

By Davion Smith, BVI News Staff

Territorial At-Large representative Archibald Christian has said he is displeased in the manner in which Premier Dr D Orlando Smith went about having him fired from his post as Junior Minister of Tourism.

“I don’t respect the way it was done at all,” Christian told BVI News.

“It’s not something that anyone would feel good about but, to be honest with you, if the premier feels that’s how he wants to conduct business in this country where he can just fire his ministers without having a conversation with him, I think we have a sad state of affairs in our territory,” Christian added.

At the recommendation of Dr Smith, Governor Augustus Jaspert booted Christian from the ministerial post on Thursday following his (Christian’s) resignation from the National Democratic Party (NDP) — the political banner under which he was elected nearly four years ago.

While accepting that the Premier is well within his rights to recommend that he be stripped of his ministerial post, Christian said be believes the reason for his firing is not justifiable.

“I can only assume that the appointment was revoked because I resigned as a member as the NDP … [But] as far as I am concerned, I am serving in this honourable House [of Assembly] as an elected member and my resignation from the NDP should not have anything to do with the fact that I sit in the House of Assembly as the Junior Minister for Tourism,” Christian reasoned.

Premier Smith, however, does not subscribe to Christian’s sentiments.

Speaking with members of online media after Thursday’s sitting of the House of Assembly, Dr Smith said Christian made his intention clear when he defected the NDP — the current governing party.

“If you receive the go-ahead, so to speak, from the community to be government and [you] resign from that then it is logical that you do not wish to continue to be a minister,” Smith reasoned.

Only I decide what side to now sit in parliament — Christian

What is now to be seen is whether Christian will be seated on the side of the parliamentary opposition (where opposition legislators Andrew Fahie and Julian Fraser sit) or he will remain planked on the side of government when the House next sits.

When asked what the seating dynamic will be for that upcoming session, Premier Smith said he “would expect” Christian to migrate to the opposite side of the political aisle.

Christian, on the other hand, says that is a decision for him to make.

“That’s up to me, yes,” Christian said while noting that he has not made a decision yet.

He said he will have to “pray” about it before he decides whether to move.

In the meantime, Christian said, on account of him getting fired on Thursday, he is now officially associating himself the Progressive Virgin Islands Movement (PVIM) — a breakaway political party which is reported to be under the leadership of sitting NDP minister, Ronnie Skelton.

Interestingly, Christian told BVI News he “will be” a founding member of PVIM which, although not officially launched, was reported as being in existence weeks ago.

  1. Fire him yes! says:

    So let me get this. Archie resigned as a member of the governing party. He then goes out publicly to say he is supporting the new party headed by Ronnie, right? And then he still expects to sit on the governing party side and hold on to his junior minister post. If I am crazy please tell me. Archie should have resigned his post as junior minister if he had any decency rather than having to wait to be fired. I hear these guys speak about integrity but it’s just a word for them. How can you be forming a new party while sitting as a minister on another party? That is highly unethical. These guys are on a power trip. They are hungry for power. You can see it and you can hear it. They will get a rude awakening.

      The scariest part of this whole thing is that bit of the former Junior Minister’s response which reads “[But] as far as I am concerned, I am serving in this honourable House [of Assembly] as an elected member and my resignation from the NDP should not have anything to do with the fact that I sit in the House of Assembly as the Junior Minister for Tourism”, clearly failing to realise the wide distinction/chasm/solar system/everything big between his capacity as an elected member of the House of Assembly (the legislature) and that of Junior Minister as part of the executive arm of government. How on earth is it possible for him to have sat in Government for all these years and not appreciated that? To the point of making that statement? Are the people around him also that clueless that nobody could have corrected him prior to this interview? Good grief. But God…and this may be why we have all this shaking, to clean house. By the grace of God, we will be ok but hold on because the ride over the next several month up to election and when things settle after, will be rough. We need to be on our knees asking God for mercy and grace and His peace, for this country.

      I am of the opinion that keeping his mouth shut just to hold on to his title/job all the while knowing full well his intent was to move on to another party would have been just as bad, if not worse.

      Such a move would have been unfair to the NDP, and it certainly would have been unethical at a minimum.

      I presume this is the avenue the others who are reportedly leaving are taking. I personally think it’s wrong.

      If you want to go, go and be gone. Stand for something if you believe in it. Don’t stick around pretending to be a part of something when you know in your heart, your intent is to leave. That’s disingenuous.

      Sticking around until the right moment may be viewed as wise by some, but in my view, in this case, it’s rises to the level of calculating and non-trustworthy.

        But this is politics we are talking about that is, a dirty game. Clearly the man didn’t want to lose his job. So while it might seem disingenuous to you, in reality it was a foolish move for him to come out declare he is leaving the NDP at this time.

        Now he is paying the price in unemployment and embarrassment.

          Lets assume for discussion sake that he had stayed until the government was dissolved in anticipation of the upcoming election, and shortly thereafter joined this new party.

          IMO, he may have earned a few more extra pay checks, but more importantly lost more in terms of his credibility and his reputation if he was going to seek re-election again.

          I am convinced, he would have been better of and had a stronger argument to make to potential future voters if he had quit completely including all post and state it was done on principle rather than this suicidal stunt he pulled.

          But you see, when you have bad intent, quite often you stumble and make mistakes which reveal who you really are. I think this was the case here.

    I cannot believe that Mr. Christian could think that his firing was not justifiable. That thinking just shows how misguided he was/is.

    IMO, he committed political suicide. What did he really expected the Premier to do after he resigned from the NDP and declared he would remain the Junior Minister of Tourism…a position he inherited from the same body he resigned from?

    Clearly, he was not thinking straight, or was ill advised.

    I find it incredulous that he would feel disrespected about the way he was fired. The disrespected started with him; the Premier and the Governor just finished it.

    He made his bed; he will have to lay in it.

    He needs to do as the Premier suggests and “migrate to the opposite side of the political aisle”, and start campaigning with his new party. He has 5 months to get his act together.

Archie is a dim bulb and it is sad to see a grown ass man mess up the little thats left of his political career. Any party that can put him on their team to contest elections must be out of their minds! How can you resign from the party that is Government, confirm that youre with a new party but keep your ministerial post? HOWWWW????????????? These guys say they are leaving the NDP because of integrity and principle. Glad to see Christian leading by example. You really cannot make this stuff up! Now he is the victim!

    That being said, not one of us can expect that if someone we place in a position for e.g. Liaison Officer of our team and that individual resigns from being affiliated with our team that any one in their right mind should not would be kept in the position.

Minister Skelton had West End burning for months, people had to buy high grade face masks as a result and not one statement or plan of action for the people. That is love of country? I live in Carrot Bay and the smoke was choking people off and these so called lovers of country had nothing to say about this. Every single thing is Myron this or Dr Smith that. Every single one of you have had missteps so stop with the foolishness.

    Is Archie for real. He won his seat on a party ticket. I’m sure bet he would not have won had he run as an independent candidate. The government is an NDP GOVERNMENT. You resign from the party and still expect to remain a government Minister. How in the world was this man elected to the HOA and two terms at that. Smh. Nuff said, moving right along.

    Dr. Smith did Archie a favor by forcing him to make a decision he hadn’t prayd for yet. Sometimes karma just forces our hand like that.

    Well Archie, I warned you not to go nilly willy, joining any new party.

    You didn’t listen to sound advice and now you’re on the out looking in. How sad indeed!

    But you should have known that you were really the odd one out. You were only being used in my view to retain a seat, to retain power. Your oral skills were less than stellar and you was always seen as a liability.

    The NDP has always been a party of the “greats”, so to speak. If you’re not a lawyer, docter, or a learned one, of sorts with tremendous amounts of wealth, you’re not highly viewed among them.

    Sadly, you learned the hard way. You don’t rise in politics by talking everything. Some things are better left unsaid.

    Always remember, a wise head keepeth a still tongue!

    Archie you just played urself. If u think u getting back in government well i got an island to sell u.
