Investor with interest in LIAT willing to pay portion of severance, Lovell says

41

Harold Lovell is condemning the Government’s treatment of the former LIAT workers, and says his Party has found an investor willing to shoulder some responsibility for their severance payments.

The ex-employees and the Government have been at loggerheads over such payments, which remain outstanding more than a year after they were sent home.

Recently, Prime Minister Gaston Browne and Minister Lennox Weston gave the workers and their unions until the end of December to accept a 50 percent non-negotiable offer that includes cash, bonds, lands and scholarships tenable at The UWI – Five Islands.

However, Lovell says the Browne Administration is on the wrong track with its approach to the LIAT-severance issue.

Lovell says he has given a commitment that a United Progressive Party Administration “will have a totally different approach.”  To this end, he says a proper discussion with the parties is key.

During a Trade and Investment Mission to Panama, Lovell says a potential investor expressed an interest in LIAT and in helping to pay a significant portion of the severance monies. — REAL NEWS

        • They are actually saving the stripper pole for the Top Dawg and his Spanish Woman. Yes, you know what I am talking about. T he he regularlly has to buy pampers for.

          • Yes Wilmoth Daniel is the low dog 🐕 😆🤣😂that’s why they call him Pitbull. Him filming the stripper pole bus was the ultimate diss to you. He brazen and bold to say he can get away with the people’s property and even add in a whore pole to government property. Poor JohnAshe. Demblame him for everything and say that he a wan liar .

      • Where were these contacts prior to 2014? Finding
        a invetor to throw money in hole is to find a unicorn We willl shortlly see Lovell’s abiity to get funding since the election gong will soon sound. One need only look back at 2018 and you would note the UPP was bankrupt

  1. Why would any reasonable/rational investor want to invest in the airline industry in this climate and take on the uneeded backage of Liat which would bring no commerical benefit. Will Lovell now be joining Gaston in ground fakings and drumming up foreign ‘investors’.

    • Why don’t you assist in electing a UPP government? You will then see what a required change in government will bring about. Don’t follow the hypocrites who say how bad the opposition government was when they did more for Antigua than labour did in fifty years.

      • DC yet the voters threw them out, what does thaat telll you? We then had elections in 2018 and worse rejection. Alll says to me the electorte saw the vlue destroyers UPP is.
        WPP (some 40 million us wasted)
        APC ( a futher 40 million usd waste)
        Fencing scandal ( 50 millllion ec)
        Airport resurfacing 46 million usd
        Half moon bay 41 million usd with 15 million of it just being interest as of 2010

        You realize we talking some half a billion in moneys wasted? No doubt I could find more (eg gutters in int Johns covered andd then having to be removed, the cost for illegally removing Watt) .

  2. Are these “investors” on Sandy Island just waiting for the “magic month” of October to row to shore? 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    De same kung-fu Lovell a Nak r u wit

    • GASTON FAILS AGAIN
      Just heard the news that Gaston’s pal Bob has liquidated his flagship project PARADISE LOST.
      SEEMS LIKE Gaston needs your stripper’s pole. He might be a better belly dancer that a Prime Minister.
      As a PRIME MINISTER he is an utter failure.
      BTW: Still waiting for my pension

      • Yeah you’re so right about Wilmoth Daniel and his STRIPPER POLE BUS that he robbed the government and people of Antigua and Barbuda of.

        Regarding your pension, take a listen to the recent interview given by David Matthias from Social Security regarding pension.

        • Just like the TOP dawg rob Antigua people of their best agricultural land. Just LIKE the TOP DARG broke teenage son who had to get a loan from Board of Education to study could find millions of dollars to buy land at Long Bay.
          Just like the TOP DARG wife get money for SHARE.

          Just checked my bank. NO PENSION.

          • Guy since when Board of ed giving loans? They provide scholarships. There is no criteria for such that bars persons whose parents are rich. Is your real issue perhaps the fact that you or your children can’t meet the required acaemic standard?

  3. I am so sorry for the LIAT workers who have been out of work for such a long time. On a personal note I have two family members- husband and wife, who both work for LIAT.
    I really hope that this can be turned into reality because we are dealing with people.
    Blessings to you MR. Lovell . Thank you for trying to help my family members. I really appreciate your efforts.

    • That is an interesting comment. However, let us examine Gaston’s witch hunt record.
      Gaston tried to jail Serpent : Serpent 1- Gaston 0
      Gaston tried to jail Damani : Damani 1 Gaston 0
      Gaston tried to jail Giselle : Giselle 1 Gaston 0 and now will get nearly half million dollars
      Gaston tried to jail Lovell : Lovell won Magistrate’s Court
      Gaston tried to jail Lovell : Lovell won High Court

      You see the pattern

      • Try an understand what words mean. If jail/detention is the crieria then the persons named were all jailed/detained. Note you wel know GB has no legal power to order anyone arrested. you must mean imprison becuse if jail was the criteria no court needs to be involved. You get arrested and held in jail. Think you know the persons named were arrested

    • Yes! This is exactly why Lovell is known as King Liadd. He has NO CREDIBILITY and NO ERECTIONS. Just lie lie lie for no reason.

      • Sad but untrue! You are obsessed with Mr Lovell’s erections. What does that say about you???????
        HMMMMMMMMM
        SMH
        ( HERE IS A TIP: join eharmony or match.com)

      • Are you mistaking Lovell for top Dogg? You should listen to him on his Saturday show on his radio station or read his Facebook page.

  4. Big up ya self King Lyadd Lovell Limpy Joe. You are living up to your character and solidified reputation 😆

  5. Harold Lovell has a great reputation. I want to share some of his accomplishments.
    In five years he was able to have these hotels
    Nonsuch Bay
    Verandah
    Hermitage
    Sandals Extensions
    Many small hotels owned whom by black people like you and me

    Please list Gaston’s hotel projects
    Just this morning, we learnt that PARADISE LOST went into liquidation.

    What is Gaston’s reputation. He and Asot trading insults as to who is more corrupt. Asot want to know how Gaston got his wealth. Hold your breath until ASOT OPEN HIS MOUTH.

    • Neither in bed or out of bed does Lovell have any semblance of a good -much less great-reputation.
      -Mr. Romantic Rhythms
      -Mr. IMF
      -Mr. Worst Finance Minister
      -Mr. ABST Hotel ripoff
      -Mr. Income Tax
      -Mr. Fences
      -Mr. Worst Tourism Minister

      • Harold Lovell was the best Tourism Minister ever!
        We had the following hotels under his watch.
        Nonsuch Bay
        Verandah
        Hermitage
        Sandals extension

        Please point out the hotel projects of the Tourism Ministers in the ABLP.
        Hodges Bay Club was started under the UPP

        GO AHEAD SAD BUT TRUE. NAME THE HOTEL SUCCESS STORIRES OF THE ABLP.
        JUST AS I THOUGHT, YOU CAN’T

        • SAD BUT TRUE, You seem obsessed with Mr Lovell’s love life. Were your spurned? Try Match. com. or eHarmony. With time you will get over your obsession. There! There!! Boo hoo. Don’t take it so hard

        • 1. sandals extention started under ABLP, n were purched an ground breing happaned
          when LB was PM
          2. Hammock cove hppened during this admin
          3. Curtain Bluff started and was expanded under the current labor admin (30 million ec re-investmnent) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=snZkLQXKVAQ
          4. PLH has happened under labor
          5. Royalton Resorts (ABLP)
          6. Hodges bay club failed under upp admin and new investors was brought in under labor hence it was completed and opened (see Slowly but surely; work progressing on Hodges Bay Resort, June 6, 2017, ANR
          )

  6. Congratulations Mr Lovell who is Our Prime Minister in Waiting. Thank you for your proactive approach.

    • you mean JAMMARL PRINGLE?? Lovell is a wasted, washed-up, has been who is going for his umpteenth loss. Do you know that the UPP is split in at least 3 groups? Gisele for Lovell, Others for Pringle. Some for Richard Lewis. They are trying as best to present a united front while simultaneously dying to see Lovell get his final shellacking from Melford Nicholas. Lovell is stale damaged goods – BRUISED, BATTERED and SHIPWRECKED!!! Ashes to ashes dust to dust on a political history that started with the ACLM then PLM then UPP. The man is weak, weary and spent!

      Not to mention he has not only a losing team, but a team actively undermining him and hoping for his further downfall.

  7. SAD BUT TRUE
    GASTON BROWNE IS THE WORST FINANCE MINISTER EVER

    He had 2 billion EXTRA dollars from the CIP – where the money gorn
    Where the Hurricane Irma MONEY gorn
    Where $20 MILLION that the UPP left in the MBS to be used in the event of a disaster
    The YIDA gun factory
    What happen to the 2 billion dollars that YIDA was supposed to bring to Antigua
    What happen to the half billion dollars that Weston said he had for the pandemic
    What happen to the money for SHARE
    Tell us about the land swap for Dove Cove
    How about the millionaire son
    The story of Barnicle Point is interesting
    Insider trading for Long Bay

    I COULD GO ON AND ON

    However, the MOST HORRIBLE THING IS THIS : GASTON BROWNE DON’T LIKE BLACK PEOPLE

    • ok Tabor/Asot/Sean Bird. We hear you. We agree with you that THE SKY IS PINK! Yes u hate yourself, but no need to project it on to others.

  8. I wonder if this is one of the many investors that were waiting at Sandy Island to come on board right before the 2004 election. Somehow that ship never made it to shore. It must have sunk with all the investors on it. Jolly Beach has the same problem. No investor wants to take over a company with such a large debt in employee benefits. You do not get value for your dollars. The seller has to swallow that liability themself. And Lovell you better bring the investor now that you are not in government so that you can get your finder’s fee. Other than that you will have to find someone to front for you.

    • Yes that’s the same infamous SANDY ISLAND investors 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 A boat 🚢 load a dem that can neither swim or float. Lovell mussa really tek Antigua ppl for idiots. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 woieeeee King Lyadd Lovell Limpy Joe is truly the best actor 🎬
      He can star in part 2 of the Sweetest Mango. HAMA Films need to give him an audition. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
