LETTER: I know silly season start but have some damn respect for each other

Serpent's Farm


My two cents on this issue in parliament and a response on Newsco.

The Minister of Agriculture brought to light an issue that seems to be happening since way back in the day, where people get farm land and it’s under utilized or not being used at all.

The minister mentioned Serpent who has land and it’s not being used, saying “he should give up the land if he’s not farming.”

My two cents: By right, if you’re not using the land for any reason  (can’t manage all, access to certain infrastructure) why not give it up?

I made sure I listen to Newsco for Serpent’s response!!!

“If you know me, I haven’t been farming for over one year plus, between Newsco and my political campaign, I dont have the time. ”

My two cents: So why not  give up the land so someone else can benefit?

Then he goes on to say he has water issues, it’s hard to be trucking water.

Which government  can make rain fall?

Here’s where things went for the worst. The body shaming of the lady. Boss you nah hab one mother, female siblings, female family  members?

And you people in the comment section of a couple news articles, especially females body shaming the lady also, y’all sick asf. But when Lizzo came out yall be like bbw, all females’  sizes matter, now y’all a bunch of hypocrites!!!!!!

Look at the damn issues. I know the silly season has started but have some damn respect for each other please and thank you.

PM Browne’s farm: First thing he did was build and have water storage (me nah big u up).

Farmers saying water comes on at times they may not be at their farm  I get that cause APUA doesn’t stick to the water schedule. Install  an air flow valve, it will help your situation!!!!

  1. This comment is for my two cents:
    You cannot have it two ways. You cannot be silent when the Prime Minister routinely curses and body shames regular citizens and political opponents on POINTE FM and you remain silent.

    Let me draw your attention to a statement made by the Prime Minister in July 26 of last year.
    In reference to a female political aspirant. He said: ” When it comes to politics, you are fair”.
    This is on Antigua News Room. Check it out!

    The ABLP likes to throw stones. When people throw stones back at them them, they cry like babies.
    Grow up!

    If you can’t take the stones, male or female get out of politics.

    As the Prime Minister says, once you are in politics you are fair game. You ABLP people cannot have it both ways!

      • This comment is for Zimba.
        Are you the same Zimba who called into Serpent’s show in the Snakepit bawling tear water from your eyes begging for sympathy because the ABLP bad-played you.
        Are you the same Zimba
        Say it ain’t so!!!!!
        So now you get some change from the ABLP to comment on ANR, you forget all the bad things you told the world about the ABLP when you were crying to Serpent. Mr Knight should run the tapes!

        When ABLP bad-play you again, as they will, because that is the nature of the ABLP, are you going to run back to Serpent?
        You have no balls!

        Look at ABLP HYPOCRISY !!!!!!!

        BTW did you ever get the money to buy your step-son the bicycle?

    • Wow Politicalitis have the minds of these hypocrites (UPPITES) infected with the wuss form Amnesia. The biggest Con job ever done to gain power in Wadadli. We’re using a young lady in a public forum to spill duttie unfounded claims against LBB. Please evbry day even in Churches that he was the biggest thief in the world and especially the rotten mango was biggest Con man. They have 10 years to lock dem up in 1735. Wha you hypocrites think happen nadda. Oops LBB won a defamation case against dem wicked evil people. Now they are in bed with the rotten mango who they claimed is most corrupt politician in the world. You UPPITES hypocrites have no credibility and integrity to question anyone voracity. You all don’t have any morals. All you good fu is cuss and used diatribes against others who dare to disagree with you’ll nonsense. Just imagine if it was an ABLP candidate that cuss out women daily and did get all this lands. You marching up and down town. A bunch Duttie Vagabonds and hypocrites.

    • Notes From A Native Son Of the Rock! “Oh Gad!” – Joanne Hillhouse!

      The Hon Minister of Agriculture exposed not only the shameless avarice but also the uneducated laziness of slithery colonized minds dallying from talking heads to agriculturists in hiding to “movementeers” to pu$illanimous pu$$yfooters and vicars of vacillation! For that she was “Body Shamed & Slammed” by the Media Mogul! “A man who has a language consequently possesses the world expressed and implied by that language.” ― Frantz Fanon, Black Skin, White Masks!

      Attacking and body shaming a black woman for having an opinion proves every single point that the Hon Samantha Marshall was making! Where are the most POWAful Grand Dames and WAR! It also makes “pellucidly clear” that our media industry, in 2022, in this the International Decade for People of African descent 2015 – 2024, is still subjected to a colonial, and wasp mentality that is still prevalent at the core of its Eurocentric Intellectual Editorial make-up! Our history in Antigua and Barbuda is replete with black women have always been denied a voice, but then again those members of the cabal who have attacked the Minister of Agriculture would let this fly over their heads as their Eurocentric intellectual capacity stretches only as far as that Colonial rag and others whom I will not bother to give a platform! People of African Descent of this SIDS know who they are! “Another problem doubtlessly lies in the feudal, reactionary, and passive attitude of many men who by their behavior continue to hold things back. They have no intention of jeopardizing the total control they have over women, either at home or in society in general. In the battle to build a new society, which is a revolutionary battle, the conduct of these men places them on the side of reaction and counterrevolution. For the revolution cannot triumph without the genuine emancipation of women.” ― Capitaine Thomas Isidore Noël Sankara, The Upright Man, Burkinabé revolutionary, and pan-Africanist President of Burkina Faso 1983 assassinated 1987. Women’s Liberation and the African Freedom Struggle!

      Who will rise above the fray and take the People of African descent to a Higher Level of Consciousness! “To educate the masses politically does not mean, cannot mean, making a political speech. What it means is to try, relentlessly and passionately, to teach the masses that everything depends on them; that if we stagnate it is their responsibility, and that if we go forward it is due to them too, that there is no such thing as a demiurge, that there is no famous man who will take the responsibility for everything, but that the demiurge is the people themselves and the magic hands are finally only the hands of the people.” ― Frantz Fanon, The Wretched of the Earth!

      How Sad that so many commenters stoop to the very level they decry! “Humankind does not submit passively to the power of nature. It takes control over this power. This process is not an internal or subjective one. It takes place objectively in practice, once women cease to be viewed as mere sexual beings, once we look beyond their biological functions and become conscious of their weight as an active social force. What’s more, woman’s consciousness of herself is not only a product of her sexuality. It reflects her position as determined by the economic structure of society, which in turn expresses the level reached by humankind in technological development and the relations between classes. // The importance of dialectical materialism lies in going beyond the inherent limits of biology, rejecting simplistic theories about our being slaves to the nature of our species, and, instead, placing facts in their social and economic context.” ― Capitaine Thomas Isidore Noël Sankara, The Upright Man, Women’s Liberation and the African Freedom Struggle!

    • In all the cussing that the PM has cuss UPP members according to you. Name one derogatory name that he called them?
      Laggard: a person who makes slow progress and falls behind others.
      charlatan: a person falsely claiming to have a special knowledge or skill.
      Imbecile: a stupid person.
      Deracinated: uprooted from one’s natural geographical, social, or cultural environment
      Lazy: unwilling to work or use energy.
      Con artist: a person who tricks other people in order to get their money
      The above are some of the names I have heard the PM used to call his UPP opponents and also some of the Barbuda council members.
      Now perhaps you guys have an issue with understanding and the use of the English language. But clearly those are decently used words. No foul language as was displayed on Observer. Perhaps it is the lack of education that they do not have the control of the vocabulary to express themselves in a proper and dignified manner. So, they result to the gutter. Where they belong in the first place. And is that the kind of people we want to elect to represent us? Hell NO. We will Raise the Standard and Raise it Boldly.

  2. I guess it’s the of year for hypocrites with selective amnesia to crawl out like red ants, from under the rock they were hiding.

    Perhaps being under a rock, the writer never heard their top dawg, cussing and body shaming people on rumshop radio.

  3. TANNY ROSE destroyed UPP Candidates on POINTE FM Browne and Browne showing Saturday. Tanny called out SERPENT , SEAN BIRD , SHEFFIELD BOWEN , ALISTER THOMAS and many others. UPP CANNOT go into 2023 election with these GUYS. UPP is AWFUL PARTY.

    • Did sore foot tanny rose the solid waste, tell the nation why as chairman of solid waste board garbage was piling up all over the place, because they cannot pay the workers.
      Does anyone who has heard him over the years admitting that people pay him to cuss people on radio, take him seriously?
      He is a political mercenary, who is singing for his supper.
      By the way, did three questions Lamin and the flip flop fake dread, hear what he said about them?

    • BEEF is that YOU.

      You are such a joke: ONE MAN PRETENDING TO BE MANY PEOPLE

      • Anna Salome

        Why you are interfering with BEEF?
        BEEF always put His real name. He does not hide. Mind your own business.

        • Beef is that you. Is Sim your new name.
          Like I touch your raw corn.
          Make sure you get your money.
          You idle bad to have to pretend to be so much people.

    • Is Tanny Rose the kind of people representing Labour Party as their spokesmen? Lord help us. No wonder this country stinker than a sore foot.

  4. Hope some of ar u a tek u pressure pill. Colombo you sound like you about to pop a blood vessel. Be careful jack. You dun min under pressure a ready. Watch uself. Antigua politics no easy tarl.

  5. CONVICTED CHILD MOLESTER. IAN MAGIC HUGHES is UPP Spkokesperson. UPP Candidates who cannot pay Their rent , Who went to jail for murder.UPP attracts CRIMINAL ELEMENTS. SHAME.

    • Hi Barb,
      Take it easy. Don’t twist your nickers your panty or your under pants.
      You feel the pressure!
      Temper, temper! there there.

      Now go and tell Tanny, the ABLP intellectual to wash his stinking feet and his smelly mouth with his rotten teeth.

  6. SERPENT IS NASTY!!!!! Looka at how he keeps his farm. Imagine how he keeps his backyard and bathroom. I would not accept even a drink of water from NASTY SERPENT.

    Shame on this UPP candidate and Agricultrue Minister wanna be.

  7. Look at the years he got all these lands, and he wants to claim that it’s because of Covid why he has not been able to get them prepared for farming. What a damn LIAR. I know Awelawe Ale banjo has a lot to answer if you ask me. How can he authorize so many parcels of land to one individual that has not been producing on the lands? When many other people cannot even get an acre of land to lease.

  8. As Onku sings the song. If you’re living in a glass house don’t throw stones. Serpent should remember that when he attacks people.


    It warms my heart to see people adding enlightened commentary to the political debate. Some comments here are so much above the boring tit-for-tat of RED verses BLUE, that passes for political debate, that they could be considered scholarly. GOOD ON YOU!

    I hope these people will continue their commenting at this high level as the SILLY SEASON unfolds.
