NDP launches app ahead of elections

The National Democratic Party (NDP) has upped the ante on the campaign trail with the launch of an app ahead of the February 25 general elections.

The app gives insight on the 11-member team (individually and as a group) and the party’s manifesto.

The app also has what is being dubbed ‘NDP TV’, ‘NDP music’ and a photo gallery of party events.

Persons are also able to review a compilation of what the governing party said it has achieved during its time in office.

The NDP has served that last eight years in office.

        This app just demonstrates how wasteful, arrogant and shortsighted NDP is.

        Why not just update their website. That way the information is available to everyone. Not just a few losers who willing to download nonsense to their phones.

        An app is a waste of time, money and for the electorate, a waste of data and phone storage. schupps!!

      Which button links to the article in the Economist that exposes NDP’s fiscal mismanagement and corruption. The Economist highlighted that our our fiscal woes aren’t the result of a lack of revenue but rather gross mismanagement and corruption.

      We need a change button.

      Their manifesto should come with a disclaimer on the cover that makes it absolutely clear that the information provided should not be taken seriously and is only to bamboozle constituents and may include pie in the sky thoughts and cock and bull stories.

        Myron Walwyn has shown that he is a man of action and can get things done. He is imperfect as every other human being on earth is, but the man does work and works very hard. Regardless of what you think about him, one thing you cannot say is that he is not a smart individual with a lot to offer this Territory as leader. I will take a chance with him and his team come election day!

          Well actually he cannot be a man of action when almost a year and a half later the High School is still under rubble and Tortola is one of the only places in the World without a public library. It’s ok to say that’s one of your favorites but let’s not get carried away with flattering descriptions.

            If you were worth a grain of salt, a library would have been reestablished . Roll up your sleeves,reach out for volunteers and donors to restock and house a public library. Those many places including the USA, public libraries are not under the Gov.
            Entitlement misconceptions and the gimmee outlook is a cancer in some of our souls.
            Frankly,With the internet as a search engine, a Public library is a can do later project.

    Well no button was created whe under VIP Government when the financial secretary and the budget controll robbed our hard earn tax payers monies from the treasury. Also no button was cteated when VIP minister placed millions of dollars in a bank account. So at least we know about the plane public knowledge but what about the bank account?

    It shows that you do not listen your said MC Claude Skelton for the VIP said no money was stolen from the pier park it was value for our money it just that government under bid the project.

    At least it stood up for Irma and Maria that shows that money was spent real damn good. The same pier park was the only place where money came back to the territory for tourism.

    The least important thing we need is an app. Let’s get the debates going before election. NDP claim to have the best team so they should be eager to accept. Stop hiding behind Myron. It takes more than one good player to make a successful team. Lebron had to join Wade and Bosh to get his ring. He couldn’t depend only on his skills. The reality is NDP relying heavily on Myron and hoping to turn elections into a popularity contest. Just compare the district reps then you will realize that NDP shouldn’t even be in the race if we aren’t being politically biased. Mark is sure to win but look at his resume as Minister for Communications. Everything that we complain about daily is under his portfolio. Water woes, Slow internet, Potholes, Power failures, Sewage. Is he really being elected because of a job well done or popularity. Alvera and Aaron declined debates. Both VIP candidates are clearly better choices in so many aspects including experience and knowledge. Why is the best team running from proving to their constituents that they have the best to offer. They are using Hubert’s poor performance as a model and are now shying away from any debate that can make them look like the lesser candidate. If Hipolito ran on any other party people would have made all kind of jokes. Stop lying to yourselves. Everybody was saying that NDP cannot be serious. Their At large team has some decent candidates but the best candidates between NDP and VIP based on experience, knowledge is Carvin hands down and Shereen Flax is definitely top 4 out of the bunch.

      “One app does not a county make”

      If the NDP is so smart why is sewage flowing through our streets?
      If the NDP is so smart why is our dump still on fire?
      If the NDP is so smart why are are schools still broken?
      If the NDP is so smart why are our roads broken?
      If the NDP is so smart why don’t they use due dilligence when investing our money? Why we lost $7.2?
      If the NDP is so smart why did the Exonomist highlight their fiscal mismanagement and corruption?
      If the NDP is so smart why are you so poor?
      If the NDP is so smart why won’t they sign the whistleblower law?

      We the public are obviously asking for the candidates to come out of their comfort zones and gave us the people and answer to the people. Is that too much for the people you are supposed to be representing to ask for? An app can’t vote for them.
