  1. This is flabbergastingly unfathomable. Why would anyone choose to fight to remain a candidate for a party that is adamant on cutting ties with him or her? There’s some reason for this. I am of the view that the good gentleman realizes that he would face an uphill battle to maintain his grip in that constituency.
    Let’s see how this plays itself out.

    • @Dave Ray, move to the very head of the class. You, Sir, have peeked Asot Michael’s card. Those who egg him on do so not because they believe he is a good politician or that he is good for the country. They do so simply because they want to see mayhem in the ABLP. Asot will ultimately lose this battle against the ABLP and he will certainly lose his seat in St. Peter. This is what he trying to prevent because he knows that the majority of his support comes because he is a member of the party. If he is so confident that he can win the seat through his own efforts, why not simply take it to the ABLP in an election, defeat their candidate and earn bragging rights. The truth is bleaker for him: he CANNOT win without the ABLP, but the ABLP without Asot WILL win St. Peter. That IS his problem!

    • Dave Ray you have lost me here with your logic. I guess you meant that if the good gentleman ran as an independent he would lose hence his fight to remain on the ALP ticket.

    • BECAUSE THE PARTY DON’T BELONG TO NOBODY, NO 1 PERSON CAN’T THROW ANYONE OUT OF THE PARY. THE SHOULD HAVE A PRIMARY AND THEY WAS A SCARED TO HAVE IT. THE CONSTITUTION OF THE PARTY SAID A PRIMARY SHOULD KEEP BEFORE A PERIOD OF TIME AND THAT TIME AS PASSED.

    • Comrade Dave Ray you often spout how you played some minor role, in Hilary campaign to unsuccessfully stop the despicable trump from becoming US president but you have no problem that your despotic ALP leader, who is pretending to be a dictator refuses to call a conversation and abide by the court ruling.

      By the way, next time murdoch invite you on the big issues, kindly inform him that you are an ALP sympathizer, and not as independent as you pretend.

  2. We are running low on pop corn, get your peanuts the next 10 months is going to be entertaining.

    Election Results…

    UPP – wins 7 Seats
    Barbuda – BPM
    ABLP – wins 9 seats

  4. It will be interesting to see the next move of the Executive of the ALP. However, the position as expressed in the letter from Asot’s lawyer is absolutely correct. Based on the Revised Constitution of the ALP a Primary to select candidates for a general election must be conducted 12 months before the date for the general election. The next general election is constitutional due in March 2023. As a consequence, the Executive of the ALP has run out of time. Personally speaking, that requirement of the ALP Revised Constitution is most nonsensical. The question now is will Asot run as a candidate on the ALP ticket after all the pronouncements of Gaston Browne against such a reality? Or will the ALP go into the election with 16 candidates leaving Asot off its ticket to run as an independent? The next few months will be very interesting.

      • @Skyewill…

        Run Asot Run!

        The reason why the PM is hesitant, to set the Election Date!

        The Nation wants ACCOUNTABILITY!

        Run Asot Run!

        ABLP fraid Asot!

    • It will be a fight of the INDEPENDENTS. Asot Michael versus Rawdon Turner. However, both will lose and St. Peter will return young Harriet as the constituency representative.

      • Harriet and his family are BIG LABOUR PARTY SUPPORTERS. Their “X” will be for ABLP

    • @S. Bowen Shot…you are a #stalker gravitating to a mass murderer.
      Is this the lessons you’re learning, as an ABLP OPERAYIVE?

      ANR and Law enforcement need to monitor you.

    • THEY WILL NOT WIN ANY SEAT NOR ANY CASE BROUGHT AGAINST IT BY THE WICKED ABLP GOVERNMENT EITHER, INCLUDING DGI, HJ, JQ, WD AND HL…….EAT THAT

  5. IF PERSONS ARE NOT WILLING TO FOLLOW THEIR OWN CONSTITUTION HOW CAN THEY BE TRUSTED TO ABIDE BY OTHER L AWS. A DEN OF THIEVES “AH WAH DEM BE”…..SEND THEM ALL TO COOKS DUMP FOR ETERNAL DISPOSAL

    • @FriedHead Pelle. Not so easy you want to get away. See you at the polls when UPP headed by IMF ROMANTIC RHYTHMS WADADLI POWER CAN’T ABST HOTEL RIPOFF ABIB COLLAPSER BANKING-SECTOR COLLAPSER ANTI-UWI FIVE ISLANDS CAMPUS BAICO/CLICO COLLAPSER will be left at cooks dump. There the UPP will join Baldwin Spencer for a drink of his famous COOKS POND WATER 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣

      Load them up on the Wilmoth Daniel STRIPPER POLE BUS 🚌 and send them pitching down to Cooks 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣

  6. I went down to Epicurean to get some more popcorn 🍿 and can you believe they run out again!

    Luckily, First Choice had plenty plenty, 🍿🍿
    Just going to stock up on some beers 🍻 now and relax myself.

    As I said before, Asot Michael is going to be the fly 🪰 in ABLP’S ointment 🧉

    I LOVE IT … 😉

  7. SmH there will be no room at Cooks Dump since Gaston Browne, his family and entire Cabinet will be taking up all the human space there.

  8. This keeps getting more and more entertaining. However I am waiting on Gaston to call the convention. I hear they have a big surprise planned for him.

  9. Well look a meleè
    Asot, between me and you, I would just spoilt the session one time and spill all the beans
    Time to just throw back a few and let it call come tumbling down

  10. The “cult” alp has finally met its match
    The haitians are here to help us out
    Oh how the mighty will fall

  11. Actually, it’s 13 months to the date of election. Remember you have up to 90 days after it’s due date. Spencer did that in his last election! There is time to deal with this matter!

    • It is 12 months prior to the constitutionally due date. The constitutionally due date is 23 March, 2023. The 90 days after in which the election can be called does not apply.

  12. Wait Hugh Marshall Jr. couldn’t refuse Asot’s money?
    I really wonder what Papa and sista have to say about that.

      • Fool Ruler don’t confuse him with the UPP smaddy who douse down he mother hairstyle. Bucket a water and wet up the woman head

    • FROM THE SIDELINE you must have more sense than that. Hugh Marshall is a lawyer, so because he and Asot are ALP supporters means that he should not represent Asot. FROM THE SIDELINE please get real.

      • I really don’t know who you refer to as “good gentleman”. Surely not Asot Michael? Nothing good in that rotten apple. He is as despicable as they come. Had warned my good friend Lester from day one that he was making the biggest mistake of his life by bringing him so close to him. I’m glad Gaston did what was necessary. It was bold of him to do. As money usually buys many people. And votes. The reason election campaigns are expensive and need to be financed by large givers. Whether here or anywhere else in the world. I tip my hat for him to stand on principle. Not like Baldwin Spencer that said, “One Strike and you’re out”, but when things starting to happen he didn’t have the testicular furittude to do so.

      • You mean to tell me Lawyers have to refuse cases because of their personal conviction of the matter they have to defend.
        Lets bring it hypothetically. A man rapes your best friend’s daughter, he comes to you for his legal defends. You tell me you will take the case just because you are a lawyer. This case is poison for the ALL-stalwarts labour party members. And given that his father and his sister are in the executive, and his sister is also part of the firm, he should not have taken the case at all. Unless he has an ax to grind. Cause I do not believe it could be money.
        And you know the stupidity of this all is. In the end worst case scenario Asot runs on a ABLP ticket, like he is now an elected member. He will not have a portfolio, but I’ll bet you Turner will be given a ministry to run.
