CABINET NOTES: The Cabinet condemned the vicious attack on one of its female members by a radio broadcaster on one of the opposition-backed talk-radio stations.
The language used was foul; the effort attempted to degrade the highly performing Minister; and, the attack demonstrated the depth to which the opposition political party will go in order to engage its listeners.
The attack on a female, elected legislator requires the women in the opposition team to distance themselves from the remarks and to strongly condemn the activist for engaging in the demeaning diatribe; the misogyny which is pervasive, appears acceptable by leaders in the opposition, the Cabinet concluded.

Now I am convinced Antigua is either a JOKE country or a FAKE country. The CABINET needs to first condemn the person who chairs Cabinet for denigrating and demeaning people generally and women in particular before condemning any one else. When it does that then I will say we have a REAL CABINET.
a JOKE is what you are! When a wanna be AG can knock down a special needs boy and then …………………………. then yes he is a JOKE!
“If u only know. Tabor is no saint. He knock down my little friend and never look back on him not even to offer one pain killer. And then want come off a good citizen. Gimme one blasted break”
Mr. Tabor, UPP & its supporters are the jokes! Check Scorpion, Is joke they are really making!! They are all behaving as if their brains are made of sawdust. In the song of one of our famous calypsonian, Obsti, he mentioned ” Don’t loose yr head bcuz your brains are in it” Clearly, the UPP pundits are not familiar with the song. ALL of them have lost their heads resulting a high degree of erratic behaviour…. The gov’t now need to focus on expanding the lunatic Asylum to accommodate the high number of lunatics that the UPP party and its supporters has.
Ya can tell when yall are ablp supporters. Yall kiss Gaston ass and yam he shit.
Charles, you of all people should be defending this lady against such male egoism, whether she be red or blue. A woman is a woman is a woman. I thought you were some kind of a progressive. Don’t get goofy now. Just apologize. ps: WHAT IS THIS about somebody alleging you “knocked down” some special needs kid? Explain what is going on here. I address you with respect, and still think you’ve got a good head on your shoulders that you could make a valuable contribution to the future of this country. All that is needed is that some of yur rough edges need to be rubbed off, and I’m here to help you with that.
You will have to excuse Tabor. The only female he supports is JANICE SAMUEL of Observer Radio fame. She was soooo busy being a nasty hypocrite on the snake pit that she forgot to remove the “glue” from her fingers.
I don’t know if Jackie “Rag-Tag-MBS” Quinn gets any attention from him 🤔
Thank you KRISTI. With respect to the knocking down of a special needs child these are the facts. I live at Marble Hill and on my way to work about 7:30 one morning I saw a white bus (subsequently found out it was a school bus) parked on the left side of the road, on seeing the bus I slowly drove past it. While driving passing the bus a young boy ran across the road after his pet goat and collided with the front of my vehicle. The detractors claim I was speeding but there are no skid marks etc on the road. Fortunately, the young boy only sustained some bruises. He was taken to the Mount St. John’s Hospital and discharged in a few hours. I visited the hospital the said morning to see how he was doing but was seriously abused by his aunt. There is a person on ANR who goes by the alias KARMA IS A, who claims to be a friend of the family, who continues to spout his nonsense and misinformation about the incident. He says I was speeding and he also says that the young boy was kept in the hospital (to support his contention perhaps that the young boy was seriously injured). If he continues with his lies and misinformation I might just get ANR to print the medical report to finally refute the lies and misinformation of KARMA IS A. That KRISTI in a nutshell is the incident that the minions, apologists and propagandists of the ALP want to get political mileage from. Imagine for a traffic incident as simple as that I was put in a cell. However, because I realize it was all politics I just ignored their silliness. When I was arrested I thought they would also pull out the hand and foot shackles but they stopped short of that
Thank you Charles. I REALLY and sincerely appreciate reading your take on this whole issue. Your willingness to explain and clarify certainly is refreshing. As you know, I have disagreed with you on many issues, but I do respect you very much, and I really would like to see you at the helm of the UPP. The voters would then have a serious choice, however at this time I am fully convinced that Gaston Browne will likely take every seat, with one possible (?) exception. Thanks again for your explanation. Things happen.
“The cabinet ? “The cabinet is one man who is married to the lady that has been attacked verbly.
The cabinet never condemn pointless fm when attacked is made on citizens who are more honourable than him.
One man controls the cabinet the others are yes man
Lest we forget, members of the same cabinet including the foreign minister who was a senator at the time, had the most vile thing to say about a most distinguish lady, the former Governor General who was head of state.
Where was the outrage then? Now that tinkerbell the biggest ghost worker in Antigua surfaced became election in around the corner, and person are engaging in peaceful political discourse about her, the hypocrites with selective amnesia are up in Arma. Just give me an aspirin!
Hey “Cool Ruler”. You need to be educated. You are in error. Please permit me to correct you: If you are a patriot you would know that the Governor General is NOT the “Head of State”, as you stated. The “Head of State” is Her Majesty ELIZABETH II, Queen of Antigua and Barbuda. The Governor General, past or present, is the Queen’s appointed representative, appointed by the Head of State (the Queen) and serves at Her Majesty’s pleasure. SHE AND SHE ALONE IS THE ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA HEAD OF STATE, whether you and I like it or not. That could be changed (the process is long). That’s the way it is. I pray the dear Lord will give Her Majesty many more years. I don’t know what we would do with that Prince Charles and Camilla??? WHEW!
you have to excuse “Cool Ruler” he is just like Lovell – loss he morning and a try gain he afternoon.
Highly missing minister please , performance is NOT the adjective
Yes it’s wrong,I hope the police will search for such a person,and charge him for disrespecting a government minister on social media…
We must learn to respect those in public office, regardless of their background or political affiliation….
@ Just a Idiot I mean a Socialist:
LOL SEARCH AND CHARGE ? Wow what the hell country do you live in Russia ?
🕵️ Well according to your standard the Police don’t have to search anywhere Gaston should be getting picked any minute now.
Hi “Socialist”: Actually, you are right. RESPECT for the office no matter who the person might be.
Ass does the Prime Minister respects anyone? Chupzzzz…. yall need to think before yall open yall stupid mouths.
The abusive comments, circulated via social media, were made by a CRIMINAL DEPORTEE from the United States, who is a mouthpiece of the UPP. The radio program is hosted by a CONVICTED PEDOPHILE.
CONVICTED PEDOPHILE……wonder who that could be?
Is that true? IF a “convicted pedophile” is involved, he needs to be institutionalized in some kind of life long treatment. Pedophiles cannot be cured.
You must be mistaken. Please explain. Sometimes innocent people are accused of things. Only the courts can determine guilt. I don’t believe the radio station would give voice to ANY “convicted” pedophile. The very idea is gross and makes me want to vomit. Phew!!! Yuk!!!
CONVICTED PEDOPHILE, IAN MAGIC HUGHES
The UPP is the party of “JAIL BUDs ”. Hi Sherfield Bowen, war gwarn boss?
“Hughes, who was 50 years old at the time, touched the child’s breasts and tried to force her to kiss him more than once, while they were in his vehicle. ”
Can you imagine the UPP has a CONVICTED PEDOPHILE as its frontman? That is how serious they are about governance.
Are you trying to fool people into thinking you are the real Jackie? Why don’t you find your own moniker.
When Gaston put his wife in politics, he should know what to expect. Listen to him on his Browne and Browne Show on Pointe Fm and tell me if anyone should care what people say about his wife. He knows that people in the opposition don’t qualify, but what qualifications his wife has. He parachuted her into a safe Labour constituency and then made her lands minister so he can control our lands.
Listening to the woman, she sounds as shallow as a skillet to say she is minister. All she is is another means of self enrichment by Gaston Browne. Nobody else could have been put in that constituency? Gaston made sure he set for life and he is Hoping people wii vote for her again so she can continue to be a ghost worker for the next five years and then retire with Antigua people’s money as a pension.
Gaston put her out there so as long as she and he continue to perpetuate the fraud, she will continue to get cuss. Didn’t Hurst say politics in Antigua is a dirty game?
What makes you think you are the only “Jackie” on this island? Stop that nonsense and let each and every “Jackie” have her say.
Is your real name Jackie? Why are you trying to fool people?
Compared to how she get bang up from her husband, this is child’s play.
She used to taking blows regularly.
You are a sick twisted imposter
Hey imposter…You are a LIAR!!!! Come out of the darkness and identify yourself so you can be carried to court. LIAR! LIAR! PANTS ON FIRE!!!!
Sekunda X you are making me laugh. Almost all the commenters on ANR are in the darkness hiding behind alliases including yourself. I wish we could all be in the light so that defamatory statements can be taken to court. Don’t you agree?
Let’s face it Charles…it’s all good entertainment. Laugh on dear friend, laugh on.
@SMH, the only thing going get bang concerning Maria is UPP come 2023. Guaranteed.
Not one of the women from present to 4 generations back has ever been ‘ banged’ by anyone. They would never stand for that and that includes Maria.
Go ahead then and spread propaganda to butter your future bread.
How you all look at yourselves in the mirror is unbelievable.
Would ANR mind editing the story to include some of the accomplishments of the “highly performing minister”?
Its OK when her husband does it always calling the opposition useless and unfit to be votedfor ….who started the rumor as they would lime ppl to believe that GASTON beats her ….was it the fonecall to her previous man that him / mother told everyone….or is it the neighbor (JOLLY HARBOR) who she constantly ran too for help …..
How DID THIS RELENTLESS RUMOR START…
PERSONALLY I KNEW HER PREVIOUS HAIR STLYLIST WHO WOULD SAY SHE HAD BLACK N BLUE MARKS ON HER ALSO IN HER HEAD….
WHY IS HER MOTHER HER ONLY FREN FOR A GYAL JUS 30 when she is seen always with mommy dearest ” Is it bcos her husband dnt want her to have frens bcos their ALL jealous of her…………..WHY PPL SPEAK SO BADLY OF HER …….
How many schoolmates of hers can VALIDATE she was academically smart …. knowlegeable …..
Jus bcos shes the PM wife it should carry weight and she be highly spoken of whyyyyyy?…… Why. NOBODY HAS HER IN HIGH REGARDS ….WHY NOONE REALLY RESPECTS HER….WHY EVERYONE JUS FEELS SORRY FOR HER.
I reside in her constituency and at no time i can ever say i saw her since election beside on NEWS MEDIA DOING PHOTO OPS.
@ Why Why Why Amen to that .
Lol Gaston is the insulter in cheif
The Physical part that you mentioned was confirmed by a senior Police friend as AN OPEN SECRET or not even a secret.
How many friend or foe man or woman this guy insulted on a regular.
I know her from school days, and she was always one of the brightest students in the class, and I think yu know that, too. Hmmm Your attempt at sowing doubts is falling flat. She’s one bright, classy lady. Even so, I can assure you I did not vote for her. Ideological reasons.
@why why why Nobody has ever hit Maria or ever could. Not even the King of England. She didn’t drop from hollow tree.
It is a RUMOR that you have chosen to perpetuate for YOUR own selfish nasty reason.
Just so you know Karma is a bitch.
You knew her hair stylist? How much you paid for this juicy piece of gossip.
UPP is full of Christ the King past students. Go ask them how bright she was if u really want to know and go do some more research as to why people feel.how they do because If is one thing Maria dont trouble people.
If we as Antiguans do not respect our very own, especially those in authority how then can we expect those who we refer to as ” foreigners ” respect our country. Among UPP and its supporters, common sense does not seem to be too common.
Why are you so jealous of this woman? Sheesh!
Charlene if you have nothing say besides being jealous please go in the corner,be quiet and raise your hand when have something else to say shuups.
Am I supposed to say “yes boss”… No wonder you can’t find a woman to boss around. This is 2020.
My dear it is not jealousy. It is Antiguans being robbed.
Where were these cockroaches when the Labour Party, including Weston were degrading the female Governor General. Weston even said they should pull her out of government house. Nobody nastier than labour people. if you don’t like, go back and hide from the light in your crevices.
HIGHLY PERFORMING !! WHERE THE F—-K DOES SHE PERFORMS? THAT WOMAN HAS BEEN A GHOST OF A WORKER. IF SHE CANNOT STAND THE POLITICAL HEAT,GET YOUR ADOLESCENCE ARSE OUT OF IT.THERE ARE NO DIFFERENCES BETWEEN A MAN AND OR A WOMAN WHEN IT COMES TO POLITICS.FOR POLITICS IS A GAME WHERE NO RULES ARE APPLIED. I HAVE LISTENED TO YOU SPEAK AND IT REMINDED ME OF SOMEONG BEING FORCED TO DO AND SAY THINGS UNDER DURESS.ARE YOU STILL ON WEST INDIES OIL BOARD? ARE YOU STILL IN THE MINISTRY OF LABOR/LEGAL AFFAIRS AS A JUNIOR MINISTER.WHILE BEING A SUBSTANTIVE MINISTER OF HOUSING,LANDS AND URBAN RENEWAL. IF YOU WORKED FOR MY COMPANY,YOUR ARSE WOULD BE GRASS GARNE A YARD FOR JOB ABANDONMENT. IS THE BAR SO LOW IN THE ADMINISTRATION.THAT YOU HAVE NOT BEEN SEEN IN ALMOST 4 YEARS IN YOUR CONSTITUENCY AND YOU ARE A “HIGH PERFORMER”. ALL OF YOU CABINET PEOPLE MUST BE SMOKING TOO MUCH WEED.
