Harold Lovell says Gaston Browne failed to perform in Public Works

Leader of the United Progressive Party in Antigua and Barbuda, Harold Lovell

UPP leader Harold Lovell says Gaston Browne failed to perform in Public Works.

He made the statement in response to the January 18 election date announced by Prime minister Gaston Browne last week.

Lovell said: “In Public Works, the nightmare continues. Which administration before this one ever got US$20 million in grant money for roadworks from the British or anyone else?

And yet, portions of Friars Hill Road and Sir George Walter Highway – newly resurfaced – have fallen into potholes already.The Valley Road is incomplete.

The Sir Sidney Walling Highway, going east, has been dug up again.The roadway at Crabbe Hill and at Cades Bay remains caved-in … as Southsiders cry, “How long, Lennox; how long?”

The Anchorage Road and the detour through Yorks; the incomplete bridge-work in Upper Fort Road; virtually all the community roads – from Crosbies to Follies – Gaston Browne has failed, failed, failed all of us.

What can I tell you about our utility services that you don’t already know; that you have not already felt; that you might be going through even as I speak, as electricity outages and low voltage play havoc with our appliances? 

And even as we suffer through the inconvenience and the expense, the Gaston Browne Administration has taken up acres and acres of our land with non-functional solar farms with not a single battery in operation. 

All heat but no light from that failure Gaston Browne!

Water, water, everywhere, and not a drop in your pipes – sometimes for weeks at a time!  Reverse Osmosis on top of Reverse Osmosis Plant, and yet, the situation gets no better.  Why?  Who is profiting from your loss, My Fellow Citizens and Residents? 

Who?  In fourteen days from June 2014, Gaston Browne promised you an improvement in the water situation.  He casts blame on the hardworking staff of APUA, but it is he and the “Granny- can’t-bathe” Utilities Minister who have failed to deliver!

Never has an Administration seen as many protests and as much dissatisfaction from public-sector workers.  Never! And, now, when this administration is down to crunch time; when the election gong is sounding; when civil servants have already made their plans for a good Christmas, Gaston Browne is scrambling to come up with their backpay – outstanding since 2018-19 – after the single weekend of reduced ABST.  Shame, Gaston Browne, shame!”

  1. The Nation of Antigua and Barbuda is in a state of disrepair: THE GOVERNMENT CANNOT EVEN FIX POT HOLES, CLEAN THE STREETS, PROVIDE TOILET PAPER AT THE HOSPITAL, PAY NURSES AND YOU WANNA PUT THESE PEOPLE BACK INTO POWER? DO YOU LIKE SUFFERING, HUNGER AND PUNISHMENT? THEN VOTE ABLP AGAIN WHO HAS DONE NOTHING FOR THE FURTHERMENT OF THIS COUNTRY OVER THE LAST 9 YEARS.
    SHAME ON ABLP!

    @ TEAR-GAS-TON
    If i were you I would hide myself from the electorate for what YOU, CUTIE AND THE ABLP CABAL did to us ANTIGUANS on 8th AUGUST 2021. That is a day that will forever be etched in our minds. This is what THE TEAR-GAS DID TO US:
    -CAUSED BLURRED VISION
    -BURNING AND REDNESS OF OUR EYES
    -DIFFICULTY SWALLOWING
    -BURNING AND IRRITATION IN OUR MOUTH AND NOSE
    -NAUSEA AND VOMITING
    -TIGHT SENSATION IN MY CHEST LIKE A HEART ATTACK
    -CHOKING
    -BURNS
    -DAMAGE TO FACE AND HEAD
    -THE LONG-TERM EFFECTS CAN LEAD TO GLAUCOMA, BLINDNESS ETC
    That is what GASTON AND CUTIE AND HIS CABINET CAUSED TO US, and not one of his ministers has ever condemned him, but expect us to vote for them? HELL NO, I SAY VOTE DEM OUT!!!

    Athley Rodney on 08/08/2021 to Gaston and Cutie ‘should I proceed with the plan to tear gas the poor black hungry Antiguans and Barbudans?’

    Gaston and Cutie’s response to Rodney ‘Yes, teargas DEM RASIIS, make certain that you hurt them real badly, let them know that a we run things ya’

    Dem wicked evil and HEARTLESS Vagabonds.
    Their time is up. NEVER AGAIN MUST THEY RUN THIS COUNTRY. GET RID A DEM
