A Response To Vernald Turnbull

Dear Source:
Perhaps Mr. Turnbull should use the search function of this site and see for himself the incorrect statements he's made here. The schools didn't gain accreditation, they regained it. The fact is they lost accreditation during this administration for which Vargrave Richards is part of. For you to pump up anyone in this administration for regaining accreditation is just plain hogwash. These are the same people whose failures lost it in the first place. Another fact, Richards has been part of the worst administration to ever govern these islands and we should elect him Governor so he can carry on the destruction. I think not. Personally I can't think of anything positive this administration accomplished or leaves behind, and the fact remains, Vargrave Richards was part of it. Not only was he part of it but he had his fingers in it. It's time for change and I'm afraid Richards had his chance to help build the foundation for that change and he blew it.
Following blindly because someone hands out cool trinkets or serves good food is pure ignorance. It's time to stop wasting our money, destroying our education system and crumbling our infrastructure. Richards made no sense as Lt. Governor he'll make no sense as Governor. So lets get the facts straight and look at reality Mr. Turnbull. Your statements are incorrect and quite frankly offensive to those of us who actually live here, work here, raise our families here and have to deal with the failures of this administration.
I particularly loved this statement from you, "I saw the Commissioner working on her laptop during the Carnival parade". Well hail to the chief, she gets my vote ha ha ha. It's scary to think ignorance like this is what people use to vote. "Ignorance Is Bliss…Welcome To Paradise."
