Ok. Fine.. 6am to 8pm Curfew sounds good from THursday to Tuesday.. We make Wednesday all day a Curfew day.. These utility workers need some freedom and day light to help get the country back.. I was giving my friend a Joke " I saw 1000 car on the road and less than 50 people walking and its a small island with a small small city...Why?

I think Cabinet out voted the Governor and the Premier on this one.. How would utility workers Manuver through all thia traffic to get their work done quickly and effectively..The Governor and Prwmier aint for this new adjustment thats why the deputy did the Job..The Governor needs to lead in a disaster process go through the window and on the ground reality take over...

I think having the Curfew 7pm to 7am was a better choice...The 6pm to 9am was a bit too much... With no lights in the BVI Darkness should meet people in their houses...
