LETTER: Fire Robin Now and Win Big


Dear Editor,


I am a Gaston Browne fan to the bone and I want to give him some good and free advice.


Fire and rid your government of Robin Yearwood, the APUA General Manager and Water Manager and the election is yours without a fight.


No Covid and no old pipes can be acceptable excuses, for areas that have been without water for 10 weeks. It shows an inhumane indifference along with incompetence and mismanagement. Robin has lost it. He and his GM have even been unable to face the public.


Instead, PM Browne and Minister Melford Nicholas have had to face the music.


It is totally embarrassing and unacceptable when the Prime Minister has to use his Facebook page to publicise the water distribution schedule, which, in any case, is rarely followed.


The people will not forget, no matter how much water they get for elections.

And while you are at it, rid yourself of  his daughter at Immigration.


On instructions from Robin’s hotel friend, Caricom nationals are getting a hard time, as Filipinos work much cheaper and don’t complain.


Over 500 Filipinos already work in the various hotels and supermarkets, while Antiguans, Barbudans and Caricom nationals can’t get work.


You better take warning, my PM. CLICK HERE TO JOIN WHATS APP GROUP

  1. Agree with u on this . Robin and his hotel big wig are very much wicked. Time for Caribbean and antiguans nationals to stand up

    • Gaston cannot fire Robin. He fraid Robin. He wanted to get rid of the APUA General Manager and Robin put him in his place. He tried to be a Top Dawg with Asot but hab fu tink twice with Robin.

  2. How about just retiring this ole renegade. Almost a quarter of a century on the job beyond retirement age. He is as rusty as the pipes and rancid as the water running through it.

  3. Notes From A Native Son O The Rock! This mere voice in the wilderness will not engage in ugly hence no response to the Honourable Minister Yearwood and his Investment Partners wily Buccaneering and Privateering Adventures along the Caribbean Sea!

    Last December, prior to the Honourable Michael Browne being rehabbed back into the Honourable Gaston Browne’s Cabinet, recognizing the abject failure and water woes of APUA, a new pathway in leadership was suggested! Neither the PM, or both Ministers paid heed! Whether it was ego, stubbornness, pure arrogance or political expediency given the Syrian’s life changing experience of Solar Flashes with The British Indian on the walk to Damascus, continued merrily with the failed modus vivendi and operandi which confirmed that “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” – Albert Einstein’s Parable of Quantum Insanity!

    Mi Gud Frens, CountryWoMen, Rasta, Your Indulgence and Forbearance!

    “Indeed, Afrocentricity cannot be reconciled to any hegemonic or idealistic philosophy. It is opposed to radical individualism as expressed in the postmodern school. But it is also opposed to spookism, confusion, and superstition. As example of the differences between the methods of Afrocentricity and postmodernism, consider the following question, “Why have Africans (APUA – Electricity, Inet and Water Business Units) been shut out of global development?”
    Some would reply that APUA’s Business Units “had not fully developed their own capacities in relationship to the global economy and therefore they are outside of the normal development patterns of the world economy.” Some would ask us to “look to the questions of location (Time and Space), control of the hegemonic global economy( North Atlantic and Asian), marginalization (Syrian, Lebanese and other Middle Eastern), and power positions (Edge up arrivistes, Intelligentsia, Bourgeois Elites, Bureaucrats and Politicos and their “Hangers On’s”) as keys to understand the underdevelopment of African people.”
    Yes Sir Mr. MP Michael Browne! No time For Further Distraction! “The ultimate safeguard of Independence is its protection. This nation, born again tonight, must commit itself to work and to work hard. For if we fail to do so, the consequence of our failure will be dependence on a new master who will, once again, dictate our policies and direct our affairs. // We must not have struggled so long and with such fortitude to exchange one master for another.” – VC Bird Independence Address to the Nation!
    APUA is crying out for a Strategic Plan with input from All Stakeholders, Total Transformation of its Structure, Systems, Policies and Operating Procedures and an All Encompassing Change Management of Personnel and Skills! This is your Opportunity! Seize The Time!
    Skyewill from Johnson Village wants water to wash his “dutty foot!”
    JaneMary tired washing her body from and by “throwing up water like back in the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s. Aren’t we in the twenty-first century or not? With all the Reverse Osmosis Desalination plants in Antigua and Barbuda, we are still throwing up water to bath.”

    MP Browne, you only get one shot before the next Election! Location – Time and Space! There are some Lifers who intend to die with their boots on when all about them is rotting!
    Mr. Michael Browne, as the Representative from the Center, it is a fact of Nature, which abhors a vacuum, that all relationships are based on centers and margins and the distances from either the center or the margins. APUA is at the center of every person of African descent resident on the Rock! Hear their Cries and even though reluctant tackle like Moses and let Pharaoh know everything depends on the Utility …! History has made you Central and centered you as a true Agent, and Champion with the political and “foundation” financial planning, creation and implementation of the economic and educational experience!
    From your Central Perch of the Saints, Let Friends and Foes alike know you will settle for none other than APUA! Let All who have ears to hear and eyes to see, be advised that you see that as a fundamental necessity for advancing the political, economic socio-cultural, technological, legal and environmental process. As the Ancestors taught, from the rich clays of your birth, “Work The Pestle in The Mortar!”

    “A bourgeoisie that has only nationalism to feed the people fails in its mission and inevitably gets tangled up in a series of trials and tribulations. If nationalism is not explained, enriched, and deepened, if it does not very quickly turn into a social and political consciousness, into humanism, then it leads to a dead end. A bourgeois leadership of the underdeveloped countries confines the national consciousness to a sterile formalism. Only the massive commitment by men and women to judicious and productive tasks gives form and substance to this consciousness.” ― Frantz Fanon, The Wretched of the Earth!

    “Oh Gad!” as Joanne Hillhouse would say, You have the Capacity to Work The Metaphors! Go Get ’em like our Living National Hero “da Mastah Blastah!

    “Neither stubborn courage not fine slogans are enough.” – Dr. Frantz Fanon, The Wretched of the Earth!

  4. Usless Civil Aviation and Transportation minister as well. Bring in some younger, smarter more progressive people to replace these old turds.

  5. Covid should have been the very reason to give more water
    Covid should have made them import tanks, handsfree faucets, pumps and catchment fixtures to sell to homeowners at reduced rates & to give to those who needed most (nursery, creche, old ppl, senior homes)

  6. Tings so good inna Antigua,dat pussy and all a nyam salad. Just ask Robin The Hood,fram up dey a Willikey. I remember when this man was an ordinary Citizen doing the payroll for a Hotel. Now I am hearing he has more money that Sands on the 365 Beaches of Antigua. I never in my wildest dream thought one could get so financially enriched with a Political Salary in Antigua. He should be teaching the people of Antigua and Barbuda the ways and means to become independent and rich. According to one of his Cabinet Brother’s in Parliament he owns 14 Hotels with a Business Partner in Antigua.

  7. Who is in control of Antigua? Too big to fail and pussy salad? It seems Gaston has no power over these two or he is lying to the nation. He said the building was being illegally built on the sand and DCA should have the parties cease and desist but the construction continues.
    Well Gaston if you really want it gone, send some of your Pointe boys up there to deal with it and show them who a run things.
