BVI experiencing the most difficult times since slavery — Dr Wheatley


British Virgin Islands (BVI) – Deputy Premier Dr Natalio Wheatley has expressed that the BVI may be experiencing some of its most difficult times since slavery.

Dr Wheatley made the remark while appearing on the Virgin Islands Party’s (VIP) ‘Let’s Talk’ radio programme last evening, March 8 along with Health Minister Carvin Malone.

During the programme, Dr Wheatley highlighted that the VIP administration under Premier Andrew Fahie had just celebrated three years in office, but he moved quickly to some of the troubles the administration has had to endure within that period.
