If Senator Richard Lewis continue to lie with dogs he will certainly rise with their fleas

Richard Lewis

Dear Editor,

There goes an old saying that when you lie with dogs, you rise with their fleas.

Before I proceed, I want to make it clear that I am not referring to anyone literally as a ” dog ” but I am using this cliche just to shed some clarity to what I have penned.

Now Last Thursday I had the privilege to visit the UPP rally at the King George V grounds located in the Rural West constituency. I was certainly psychologically geared up to witness an explosive meeting since there was a hiatus of their rallies and more so, their political meeting was taking place in the constituency where the former PM, Dr. Baldwin Spencer resides and whose name seems to be a renowned  name in almost every household within the community.

To say the least, I was not only surprise but I was disappointed  to see the sparse attendance of persons at the meeting.  I was also taken back to hear the low keyed responses from the audience after almost each speaker’s delivery, including that of the popular Serpant, whose presence on stage did not make a great impact.

Immediately, I was forced to ask myself, what could be the reason for such a poor response? I wondered if it was an indicator that the messages from each speaker had very little or no depth  or was it that the speakers were not animated enough and just was not connecting to the crowd to create any excitement? Furthermore, the MCs, Joan & Fled, tried their utmost best but they were just not making that indented impression. In my view, regardless of whatever the reason was, what I saw on display did not speak well of UPP’s political artillery.

With that been said,  I will let it be known that my main focus at the meeting was on Senator Richard Lewis and what he intend to offer to the Rural West constituency, since I once had an intimate relationship with the Gray’s Green community.

Senator Richard I think have great potential in the political arena and perhaps would make an ideal parliamentary representative in the Lower House, for the Rural West constituency. He is very intelligent, knowledgeable, articulates well and is reliable to take the constituents concern to parliament, if needs be.

However, he is no doubt up against the strength of a female giant, Senator Gail Christian, who does not only have similar attributes, but she is very dynamic, very influential, fearless and a great ” people’s person ” who has deep roots within the constituency.

As a result, I am of the opinion that it will not be an easy task for Senator Richard to be victorious or to win his seat in this upcoming election. In addition, to add salt to a wound, the poor performance of Hon B. Spencer, our former prime minister, in the Rural West constituency during his tenure has left a poor taste in the constituents’ mouths and hence has created a dark cloud & a very steep hill for Senator Richard to overcome.

In addition, there is also a strong belief that if Hon Harold Lovell had granted Senator Richard that latitude of being the political leader for the UPP party, then the chances of winning the Rural West seat would be alot greater & by extension, UPP winning the general election.

It is obvious that Senator Richard is associating himself with what is percieved as a bunch of failures. The former PM failed! Lovell has failed and UPP has failed during their time in office between 2004 to 2014. If Senator Richard continues to lie with dogs (failures) he will certainly then be infected with their flees of failing.

At this time, the electorates in the rural west constituency may no longer trust a UPP candidate to be the representative of their constituency. Therefore, Senator Richard’s best chances to make any headway or to be successful in politics, is to begin to think about disassociating himself from UPP.

  1. “… *if* Hon Harold Lovell had granted Senator Richard that latitude of being the political leader for the UPP party, then the chances of winning the Rural West seat would be alot greater”

    GOODLUCK WITH WISHING FOR THE LEOPARD TO CHANGE ITS SPOTS. Joanne Massiah learned the hard way.

  2. I am in total agreement with this writer….. Richard Lewis is the rose among UPP thorns…. He need to get his act together and separate himself from those demons….. UPP is just not the team to be with if he wants to be a winner

  3. Can’t see where you’re going with this, Old Fitsroy. But I can see some merit in what you’re saying about young Lewis.
    If Lovell wants to win common sense should make him work closer with Lewis. I don’t see that happening with Pringle who is nowhere near that level.
    Lovell-Lewis looks like his path to victory because the nation seems to agree that Lewis is going someplace. His performance at King George was the only bright spot in the rally.

    He could either do that or continue to hold onto the skirts around him and the spent forces like Chaku and Baldwin Spencer. Gaston is Gaston, but the party is his. Everybody could see that.
    Nothing so with UPP. I don’t get the feeling that the party belongs to him. Maybe that is the problem with UPP. It is not really Lovell’s party. He needs to get working.

    • Pringle quiet quiet these days. Dead Dog Inc is lucrative business

      • WHERE IS THE 3,000,000 THE PM BROKER ROBBED THE TREASURY OF?

        AND WHERE IS JUSTICE FOR NIGEL

  4. The Results of 2023 Elections will be as follows

    ABLP. 17 Seat

    UPP. 00 Seat ( Candidates will lose Deposits) I shall name the Candidates that will Deposits next Publication.

    DNA. 00 Seat ( All Candidates will lose Deposits )

    BARBUDA. 00 Seat

    Landslide Victory for ABLP

  5. @Fitzroy…reading your views, of the UPP and their candidates of which you’re entitled to has become so #rancid, that not only reading them are not only nauseating, they’re beginning to give many of us #Mental_Colic!

  6. Moving right along!

    It’s ANTI-MAN FITZROY AGAIN.

    CAUTLION. PURE VOMIT 🤢 🤢

  7. If you are not a paid-up member of the ABLP Fitzroy, you really make me laugh with your nonsensical musings; especially when you write:

    “I was PSYCHOLOGICALLY geared up to witness an explosive meeting …”

    Talking about psychology, Fitzroy, I think for any budding students currently studying this profound subject would do well to follow the broken promises and lies of Gaston Browne and his cabinet’s u-turns (in fact, I would also advise students to follow UK’S politicians and witness how easily they break the rule of law and want to renege

    • on written agreements); they would all pass with first class degrees studying the ABLP’S nefarious ways.

      Finally, Fitzroy, have you ever thought of pursuing a career as a comedian?

      I THINK YOU’D BE GREAT BOSS … 👍

  8. @ Fitzroy,the so called writer of the above letter. You are back writing your bull dung. In my opinion you need to walk to the area between Hatton and Donavans known as CLIFF, closed your eyes and just keep on walking.Perhaps at the end some senses would be derived from hitting of your thick walled skull.

    • @Just Saying: When I left Antigua,there was no UPP. I have never voted for UPP,ALP,ABLP,DNA or True Labor.So to whom are you referring as UPPNEARGA?

  9. LOVELL IS A SPENT FORCE 🎯

    • TOO MUCH CORRUPTION AT THE PORT…

      JUSTICE FOR NIGEL

  10. Lovell is not only King Lyadd Lovell Limpy Joe, but MR. IMF ROMANTIC RHYTHMS WADADLI POWER CAN’T ABST HOTEL RIPOFF ABIB COLLAPSER BANKING-SECTOR COLLAPSER ANTI-UWI FIVE ISLANDS CAMPUS BAICO COLLAPSER ETC

    • I NEED JUSTICE ‘NIGEL’

  11. Lol, I’m sitting here eating my popcorn. It’s amazing how people get bashed for having an opinion. One is not allowed to see things from one’s vantage point, (or else you will get cussed out nastily).

    The bottom line is the voters will decide. The parties and candidates must do what they are convinced will work for them. Saying nasty things about one another doesn’t affect the electorate.

    People vote against not what offends them but rather what affects them.
    Making lofty promises will not make a difference.

    When the ruling party cranks up its campaign machinery, we will see which side has what it takes to win.

    Now that Barbuda Land Act has been decided, let’s see if affects the results.

    God bless Antigua and Barbuda. 🇦🇬

    • Can’t you see that UPP supporters are only trying to balance up the media, commentators’ and editorial bias supporting the ABLP @ Dave Ray.

      You seem somewhat knowledgeable, but surely you can see these blatant imbalances if you take off your red blinkers off … THOUGHT NOT!
