LETTER: Apologies to UPP and its Supporters

10

Dear Editor,

First, let me thank you for allowing me to use your portal platform to share my sentiments.

Surprisingly, in do so I realized from the comments made in response to my letters concerning the political parties and the upcoming general election, the letters have all agitated several persons who support UPP.

Ofcourse, it was not my intention to agitate anyone in any negative way.  However, it was my intention and will continue to be my intention to share my opinion about the political parties, their contribution and how I view them.

Interestngly, I gathered from the comments that some persons even believe that I am being paid by ABLP to write these letters.  I wish to inform your readers that is absolutely incorrect.

Hopefullly, I am expecting to exercise my franchise during this election.  However, like many others, I am very much on the political fence trying to make up my mind as to which political party I think would be best, to manage our country’s affairs for the next five years.

I was expecting that those persons who are considered to be anti-ABLP supporters would  constructively contribute to the debate and perhaps assist in debunking some of the arguments shared in my letters. Instead a level of aggression & distasteful comments has been written towards ABLP and my grandmother, who I wrote about in my last letter. It left me to wonder if what grandma said is the truth and if so ” if the truth hurts “?

Now, let’s bear in mind that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, including my grandmother. I will admit that I found her shared commentary very enlightening and thought provoking. From the commentary, it is evident that the NEGATIVE CHARACTERISTICS that she described as a part of the opposition’s modus of operandi, seem to be embedded in the behaviours of the supporters. It sure strengthens her argument.

With that been said, I would suggest that we are all Antiguans & we can agree to disagree with each other & have constructive debates about the policies & programs of the parties and the development vs issues of the country.

Finally, it would be lovely and educational to see constructive criticisms be viewed from the supporters on both sides of the political divide. The type of behavior presently displayed by the UPP supporters is certainly a turn off and it will not be of much help to garner my vote and many more persons like me who are on the fence.

  2. Fitzroy letter writer. Are you really on the fence? I think you should go on the GWB and jump off. By the way GWB is George Washington Bridge.It spans across the Hudson River from Fort Lee, NJ to Upper Manhattan, in NYC.

  3. We would rather not have your hypocritical vote including those on the ‘political prostitutes’ list above as the PM has labelled and called them in front of their faces. Even then they have no shame. They can be bought and sold with no conscience, all for the sake of 12 pieces of silver. Most of them have no principle and it was a relief to see them go and have the expungement.
    I HAVE THREE NUMBERS FOR GASTON THAT PEOPLE SHOULD REPEAT CONSTANTLY:

    H_2_O (NO WATER)
    500 (500 EMPTY PROMISES)
    C_10 H_5_CIN_2 (CHEMICAL FORMULA FOR TEARGAS)

    DON’T EVER FORGET
    (More numbers coming?

  4. The headline and the letter are opposites!!!! This is no apology to the UPP and supporters. Chuups. This letter seems to be just the opposite.

  5. FITZROY, it is quite clear that you are a decent gentleman & a true Antiguan….. There is no need to apologize to UPP & their supporters ….. Your letters were pelucid & have stated the facts. Whenever they are opposed they all display that spirit of anger, hate, & aggression and the list can go on & on & on.. If they had a positive track record towards developing this country then they would not behave the way they behave. Respect due to your grandma!! She needs to move to the head of the class. They are ALL FAILURES & TOWING THE PARTY LINE…..

  6. Fitzroy much of what you speak of has been in existence forever in spite of more parties coming forth. Having a profession is one thing that is expected to provide a job but getting paid to mess up and parade is not work and many now in government are just that – PM calls those people charlatans, and he should know as he has quite a few professional ones around him.
    Now one party is clearly being promoted as a spoiler and we don’t have to look far to find them. They know they cannot win a seat, but they will make sure their previous base also loses by splitting the opposition vote.
    Old corrupt charlatans have run their Ministries on a corruption platform from inception and continue to do so encouraged by the PM himself. We all have heard Enrichment 101 by him in the early days when educating his men on best kickbacks and how to use investors for one’s enrichment.
    All in all if we could just bring some balance and fairness to the game, maybe it is time for young and willing as opposed to old and corrupt?

  7. Come come now Fitzroy, even though you construct your letters well (like those in the past), you are fooling no-one!

    If you are a “floating” voter as you say, how is it that your messages and political points are more favourable towards the ABLP party?

    What your current message lacks again, is BALANCE.

    If you want people to believe that you are a floating voter, I challenge you to do a similar “fault-finding” HIT on the ABLP party? IF YOU CAN!!!

    Remember Fitzroy, common sense is sometimes better than book sense …

  8. Fitzroy, you fool no one. You are not sitting on the fence but are a dedicated labour supporter. Go and vote for the ABLP, that’s your right. Are you blinded by the crap on this portal from the ABLP supporters?
    Now you know and I know that your grandmother didn’t tell you squat. Is she a university grad? Which ordinary person uses the term “ Modus Operandi”

  9. Mr. Fitzroy i gave you an “F” for your last letter due to the lack of facts to support your argument. Now you are seeking guidance from commenters on a news portal to help you decide on who you should vote for. Your actions do not appear genuine as you claim, however who am I to say what your intentions are. Either way you are entitled to your opinion, whatever your intentions may be.
