Premier Andrew Fahie has signalled a warning to his political critics that he shouldn’t be counted out, since he still has things in his proverbial arsenal to reveal.
At a Seventh District community meeting held earlier this week, Premier Fahie reeled out a list of his party’s accomplishments in office and urged residents that they shouldn’t shoot the proverbial bird in the hand while looking at the two in the bush.
“I could go on and on with things that – now is not the time – I just want to whet your appetite to let them to know that we have things in our arsenal to bring out,” Premier Fahie charged.
“Some of them are pretending that they are angels and they are saying all kinds of things about us,” he said.
“They are talking but they have not heard from us yet, because we know things too,” the Premier claimed.
“But rather than them who want to mash up the whole farm to get one fowl, we care about the Virgin Islands, we don’t want to mash up the farm at all that’s why we didn’t talk,” he stated.
Premier Fahie, who said he is confident about his team, insisted that he is willing to stand in debate with anyone about the record of his Virgin Islands Party (VIP) government.
Contractor singled out for a party affiliation?
Meanwhile, the Premier suggested that a contractor who recently won a bid to replace air conditioning units at the Multi-Purpose Sports complex was specifically targeted because of his affiliation to the Virgin Islands Party.
“We have a contractor that won the air conditioning contract at the complex and they’re trying to make it look like something is wrong because they know the contractor is around the party so they feel that something fishy has gone wrong when it has gone correctly according to the rules,” the Premier said.
“Yet, there were so many people around them that we could’ve made those allegations, we’re not like them. We’re not going to bring down people so that we can get up,” Premier Fahie argued.
