LETTER: Exposing the lies and deceit of this ABLP Administration

26

Dear Editor,

I am writing to you to express my disgust about the behavior of our Prime Minister and his disgust for the suffering people of this fair land we call Antigua.

First the government was quick to raise the price for gasoline and diesel at the pump when the price for a barrel of Oil when it went over $100 on the world market.

Also, when the price of oil went down to the point the oil companies were selling off the government here kept it at $12.50. Now for a while the price for a barrel of oil has been under $100 and you mean to tell me this careless, heartless and wicked government could not ease the squeeze on poor people pockets by reducing the price at the pump.

There is a strong rumor the reason this wicked government cannot reduce the price at the pump is because they have a shortfall in revenue and they need these extra monies to pay salaries and wages of civil servants. Only time will tell if this is true.

Second, I cannot believe this government is so deceitful to tell the people of this island that the government has had a hiring freeze when this is not so.

Customs just hired 20 persons when it was to be 50 persons initially, the Immigration hired 45 persons with nationals and non-nationals in the mix, APUA hires every single day once your finish High School and lives in Sir Robin Yearwood’s constituency you will get a job easily.

The Airport and Seaports has been hiring 20 persons respectively etc… I could go on and on but I will leave that one right there.

It seems like you can only work in the government if you have a relationship with government minister or you know the elites.

Third, what happen to the eBooks scandal? Land swapping? Is it true Sir Robin Yearwood’s owns lands opposite Hammock Cove and he got it for $1 per square foot? Why are CCEC trucks on the Prime Ministers farm supplying material when they should be at the Port working to finish the Port?

Where are all the projects this government promised the people of Antigua and Barbuda? What happened to YIDA and The Waldorf Astoria Hotels? Is the WIOC project which included a mall and a Business Park still on? What happened to the underwater hotel? Up to now we have not heard from the PM a plan on how he plans to revitalize the economy especially those 1000 businesses that went under due to Covid? What is the plan for this government to fix the utterly failing Social Security which was destroyed by the both Political parties? Is a new prison still on the cards? Why is the road project on Anchorage road at a standstill for so long? Is it true the government is out of money for that project? Is it true you plan to delay the elections Mr. PM? What happened to Dulcina hotel? What did the government do with the nearly 2 billion dollars collected from the CIP?

Finally, Mr. Wickham is trying to make the upcoming elections about the availability of Water to everyone in the country. Can I remind him there are thousands of persons who are not working and loss their jobs because his Prime Minister placed harsh Covid jab mandates, vaxx or lose your job.

The roads are also in dire needs to repair especially All Saints Road, village Roads and Parham back roads.

There are still villages in 2022 who hasn’t had access to government water due to pipelines not running in the village so they have to buy government water.

Inflation is also rampant squeezing poor people’s pockets, and never the in history of this country I have seen more sellers than buyers. Said all this to say things are really dire in this country right now and it’s not just water along people need.

If your confident of a landslide Mr. Prime Minister, why have you not called the election date? Will the bribe money and jobs do the talking?

Dawn -Antiguan

      me a bawl!!!!!

  2. All i have to say is when UPP was in power where is the missing money from runway which so called costed US$94 million dollars.

    • JUSTICE FOR NIGEL CHRISTIAN……..WHERE IS IT?

    • OMG what missing money. Didn’t Gaston say he ordered an inquiry into the matter. Ask liard Gaston what is the latest on that inquiry. Why the hell doesn’t he order an inquiry into the Odebrecht scandal where he and Casroy James took millions in bribe.

  3. This person clearly had an acce to grind. I recently returned from oversras , gas snd cost of living are up everywhere Dawn ! Are you living under a rock ? Parson christen them pickney fuss !!

    • Dadliman – The price of gasoline fluctuates overseas. Sometimes almost daily or weekly. The market dictates the price.
      Do not attempt to mislead Antigua people.
      It’s only fair to reduce the price when there is a decrease per barrel cost, if the price was raised as soon as there was an increase per barrel.
      This Gaston Browne government must stop swindling the people. The Birds’ administrations did the same thing.
      ABLP are forever convinced that Antiguans are not a reading public and only mimick what they are told.
      People wake up and think for yourselves. Country first!

  4. Time enough for him to set an election date……..Gaston want to know it’s not all Antiguans and non-national sleeping, we’re all tired of him and his ministers………We want new faces in parliament

    • @ Jus a talk …In case you don’t know election is due in March 2023! You acting as if they gone past the time as UPP did.

        • JUSTICE FOR NIGEL…WHY DONT YOU TALK ABOUT THAT.

          USEFUL IDIOT

  5. You keep talking about price of oil. Antigua dont buy oil. Antigua buy gasoline which is another product. We all would like to see the price of gasoline drop. because of our little salary we can barely buy gasoline for our vehicles. So keep the conversation going and stop talk about oil. Talk about price of gasoline. To refine oil to gasoline it cost more

    • People hirer who they know , Yearwood is great and has done alot for many. The sun shines on ALL the rain falls on ALL we are all human , We cant really belive man can gover man read ur bible we are inperfect and All fall short of the goals of God , anywhere u go in the world its unfair , Satan a run dem things !!!

    • THEY ARE OUR BIGGEST AND BEST CLOWNS, WE LOVE THEM.

      YOU STILL LISTEN TO THEM THOUGH, YOU USEFUL IDIOTS.

  6. Letter of the year so far Dawn. A brilliant piece!

    I was trying to find something to disagree with, but all your points were clear, concise and cogent (note my sublime alliteration😁).

    I note with interest that those in disagreement are the ardent “generational” ABLP supporters who continually ignore workers missing pay packets; pensioners not being paid on a regular basis; the high cost of living; gas and petroleum hikes going through the roof; the rising crime and rape cases; the infrastructure – especially in town – is so embarrassing; and notwithstanding the PM’S promise of a island wide water system to be in place by the 30th of September 2022.

    DEFENDING THESE IMPORTANT ISSUES HAS NOW BECOME MORE THAN FARCICAL – OVER TO YOU NOW GENERATIONAL ABLP SUPPORTERS …

    I await with baited breath!

  7. @ ERIC

    You are correct. Knight and Joan will be the downfall of UPP. I listened to Them for entertainment. They cannot influence anyone to vote for UPP. Bunch of noise makers.

    • THEY HAVE INFLUENCED ME.

      I WAS APOLITICAL UNTIL I STARTED LISTENING. NOW I AM THE BIGGEST ADVOCATE FOR CHANGE.

      VOTE DEM OUT
