LETTER: Government Induced Bankruptcy

Government Induced Bankruptcy

By Concerned Citizen

Governments in the Caribbean are known to deal with their citizens who oppose them with the tool of bankruptcy! One serious contender from the business sector was threatened by the great Robert Bradshaw of St. Kitts, that he would “put pepper you soup and bones in you rice!”

Much of that behavior was learned from the British colonial rulers who cussed their ‘lazy’ servants and those tried to improve their financial status, which would deplete the power of those in control.

Here in Antigua the tool of bankruptcy has become the favorite of the politicians , especially the ALP which from ancient times does not permit dissent, as was learnt after the longest picket in Antigua’s history, at O’neal’s Drugstore, then on the corner of Thames & Long Street. Labour brought them to their knees.

Then again, with the Nunes family entry into politics, the most crude and ‘racist’ attack on their family and business dropped like bombs, which stymied their growth, and almost bankrupted their business.

These ignorant and bad-minded methods of fighting citizens whose efforts grow the economy, are some of the reasons that non-Caribbean investors, in collusion with our politicians in power and public service officers, are seizing the investment platform in the region.

The breaching of International rules and regulations pertains to areas of global shared development have been normalized in Antigua, and the sale of lands, which form a part of International Air Space, sold to R. Allen Stanford was not in keeping with International Aviation Operations, and continue to haunt the Government.

Having colluded with an US company to breach this rule which resulted in a fraud of prodigious proportions in 113 countries around the world, neither the U.S. nor Antigua Government dared consider the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, which would have hauled many Government Ministers and public servants into the melee.

Today many persons have suffered the Government’s wrath in extricating themselves from the corruption of the Stanford Estates in Antigua, as many of the culprits here have tried every bad deed to share the remnants to the global crime, even surreptitiously bankrupting local business to get back the lands.

Bankruptcy as a tool to control those who refuse to corrupt themselves is fully operational in Antigua & Barbuda.

  1. This letter is one of the most vacuous I have read in a long time. Lots of words, but nothing really said.

    The writing seems to be that of a certain Michael who has written many times about airport lands.

    Seems she is now changing her tactic to dirty war since nothing she wrote before resonated with the readers. She now seeks allies in her crusade.

    • OH you mean the grey head woman from ST.KITTS?? Why she don’t go help Dr. Drew export monkey stew or something? Overpriced lands that she trying to get sold since the UPP erected the Can’t Park at east bus station and block the breeze from flowing through town.

      She get along with husband and children?

  2. Why not interview the BANKRUPT G-R-E-A-T-F-U-L “expert”????

    Minimum wage microphone punk 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣
    Larse he morning anna try get back he attanoon 😆 🤣

    Bruk bruk and dunce dunce

    • @ Smh

      OK Richie Rich

      All you minions do is live off the backs of taxpayers while your PM suck the land dry dipping his finger in everybody’s business.
      A man who had NOTHING before 2014, issued multiple BOUNCE CHEQUES, but all of a sudden since he became PM has a wealth of ‘$300,000,000’, he knows why he is fighting to stay in power….keep fighting, because nothing lasts forever.

  6. Again the Labourites and Gastonites are out in numbers, showing their incapacity for logical thought. Antigua and Barbuda is a failed state. The idiot PM, has borrowed the country into oblivion with nothing to show for it. 11 billion in 9 years and due to skulduggery, corruption and mismanagement, the country is derelict and filthy,millions are owed to citizens and payment of salaries continue to hang by a thread.
    What about Global Bank, and Brian Stewart Young whom he said is no crook, resigning? What about LIAT, Alpha Nero, all in deep quandary. He can’t pay the Xing Bank,people are owed overtime and backpack.
    He gives ridiculous concessions to business, PLH and XPZ comes to mind, then complains of deficient tax revenues.
    That is how you bankrupt a country. There were good points in this article, but reasoning with Labourites and Gastonites is like reasoning with a pig.

  7. I seriously love your blog.. Excellent colors & theme. Did you develop this amazing site yourself? Please reply back as I’m planning to create my very own website and want to know where you got this from or just what the theme is named. Cheers!

  8. If I wasn’t aware of the truths in this post, after reading the comments, I’m fully convinced that the writer is on the ball. The labourites are out in
    War mode. Not a single person spoke to the article but they descended on anybody and everybody like disturbed sand flies but who can blame them! They are some of a large group who had refused to collect their ghost- pay check in March of 2004. The rate at which our country is slipping, we might just have to lobby PM Terrence Drew for some monkey meat.

    • @Rovi truths indeed:

      Franz Defreitas with a US bankruptcy filed in Pennsylvania;
      State tax liens in NY, a $1K judgment against him in PA for unpaid municipal taxes,
      an $184K judgment against him for what appears to be an unpaid mortgage.

      Google him!

      • Is that of concern to anyone? What should be everyone’s business is the US $12 mil that NERO was given by PLH for some deal that we are going to eventually know about. Pringle was able to flush some info out of him ,ofcourse, with some lies. Franz is the mosquito on your sore.

  9. I applaud you @ CONCERNED CITIZEN 👏🏾, it all makes sense now …

    Why don’t you run for political office?

    You can’t do any worse than the current crop! 🤜🏽🤛🏽

  10. Typical Labourites and Gastonites. Never saying anything relevant to the issue on the table,just this worn out personal attacks. Their MO is fading. Sensible, educated, not diseased by years of cool-aid drinking Antiguans and Barbudans are tired of the dirty, mudslinging of these parasites. When the idiot is ousted, their food supply will be cut of and they will fizzle into oblivion.
