LETTER: UPP has placed a nail in their own coffin

35

Dear Editor,

It is evident that election is around the corner. Billboards continue to be erected and the  political talk shows on the radios are now blasting to their full optimum.  Obviously, the political parties are doing their utmost best to win the hearts & minds of the electorates.

The energy of UPP is presently high. The political party should be commended because with the limited resources that they have in store, clearly they are trying everything in the book to become victorious in this election.

Unfortunately, many things has gone against UPP.  The candidates’ repertoire & the party’s poor performance during 2004 & 2014 has contributed to placing a nail in their own coffin for this upcoming election.

Because the UPP candidates  are politically inexperienced and intellectually impaired, the majority of the citizenry do not have any confidence in the candidates that they can manage the affairs of the state.

To add salt to a wound, it is percieved that the members of UPP,   function on a platform of disrespect, hate, bitterness, vile and anger. As a result, persons are fearful of UPP repeating the same mistake of focusing on the Labour party’s 28 years in office rather than taking care of the people’s business.

Sad to say, their dismal performance for the 10 years while in office formed a dark cloud in the minds of many and now,  their sins have come back to haunt them.

If “Raising our standard & raising it bodly is our national tagline ” then questions need to be asked

1. Why should UPP be voted into office, since  they don’t respect the Prime Minister?

2. Why should UPP be voted into office, since they show no respect to the female politicians in the current ABLP administration ?

3. Why should UPP be voted into office since  POWA, a female arm of UPP, always keep silent whenever females in ABLP are  verbally abused?

4. Why should UPP be voted into office since they closely align themselves with a  NIGHT OWL & a SOCIAL MEDIA JUNKY who spews profanity, venom & hate and behave out of character on a particular radio station & social media platform?

5. Why should UPP be voted into office since one of their former parliamentarian shows no reverence in parliament by sticking up their middle finger to advocate profanity?

6. Why should UPP be voted into office since one of their hierarchy was under an halucination asking for a gun licence to go around & kill?

7. Why should UPP be voted into office since a former leader in their organization gave  instructions  to chop up the tax collectors?

8. Why should UPP be voted into office since one of their members used derogative terms  against our Caricom brothers & sisters referring to them as thieves & paupers?

9. Why should UPP be voted into office since one of their female politician referred to the nation’s elderly as rag tags?

10. Why should UPP be voted into office since UPP candidates act as dictators at a radio station causing  two brilliant bright young  men to resign from the said radio station?

11. Why should UPP be voted into office since many of their stalwarts turn their backs against them and jump the UPP ship?

12. Why should UPP be voted into office since one of their prominent lawyers was ordered by the court to be relieve of his public position because he was deemed to abrasive?

13. Why should UPP be voted into office since it is alledge that senior citizen is not paid his rent by a UPP candidate?

14. Why should UPP be voted into office since a young innocent girl who was pregnant was shot and killed by a UPP candidate?

15. Why should UPP be voted into office since  the country almost collapse under Lovell as Finance minister?

16. Why should UPP be voted into office since they can’t proposed a proper blueprint to manage & develop the country?

17. Why should UPP be voted into office since they dropped the standard of the education system during their tenure?

18. Why should UPP be voted into office when they put the country into the hands of IMF?

19. Why should UPP be voted into office when they were hoping for a mass of body bags of deceased  people during the pandemic?

 

  1. Why should UPP be voted into office when they caused many persons to lose their jobs during their tenure?

 

  1. Why should BPM be voted into office since Barbudans were described as lazy, alcoholics & other derogative names.

    • GASTON Fitzroy BROWNE this is the most ridiculous article you have writes so far. What does the results of the 2004 and 2014 elections have to do with the present circumstances. The ascendancy of the UPP since those defeats is driving you and the ALP crazy. You are the incumbent and the scanty attendance speaks volumes. People generally try to identify with the government in power, especially those on the fence, but from the attendance at your rallies it is evident your support is in serious decline. People are fed up with the ALP’s poor performance. It is the worse 8 years performance of any government in our short political history.

    • I had to do a double take when I read this article. Honestly, most of the accusations sound like they are describing Gaston Browne and his administration.

      Poor performance from 2014 to present – Gaston administration

      No confidence in the ABLP candidates- the reasons why people desperately seeking change.

      The Prime Minister respects no one – he was elected to serve, not continuously curse us and put us down.

      Why should we vote for a Gaston Browne administration when he holds the highest office in the land and disrespect both females and males. It is unbecoming of a sitting PM to be threatening violence.

      Gaston Browne disrespects the office everyday, taking off his clothes in public, cursing citizens on market street, disrespecting and belittling people on his radio show and on the streets.

      Why should anyone vote for Gaston when he thrives on being a dictator. The reason why he wears that stupid mustache is no coincidence

      Talking about gun license – who killed Nigel Christian and why? Inquiry minds want to know. We need justice for Nigel Christian.

      Why should anyone vote for ABLP when the country is collapsing. No water, this is the biggest failure. Water is essential to survive and thrive. What happen to “within 14 days of my administration, not having water will be a thing of the past”. Nearly 10 years later, where is the water?

      Why should anyone vote for ABLP when there is a blueprint to manage the country and until date no accomplishments to improve the lives of the citizens.

      Speaking about the standard of education system, in the dead of night, ABLP discarded of hundreds of computers after spending millions of dollars to buy them. Where is the accountability and insight? Or was there something more nefarious that the public don’t know about?

      Speaking of IMF, what is the state of our affairs currently. Where is the accountability for monies borrowed from IMF, from Chinese investors, CIP revenue and all the monies Gaston received for the pandemic, from private investors? Where did it all go?

      Speaking about the pandemic and people loosing their jobs. Gaston sent home people, take bread out their mouth for his own selfish gains. He deprived the elderly and disabled by denying them the pauper relief if they are not vaccinated. Dying of hunger could’ve killed them faster than not getting the vaccine.

      Gaston, I don’t know if you have amnesia but nobody curse the Barbudans more than you.

      When all is said and done, you just described your yourself and your own administration.

      The good people of Antigua and Barbuda will take their chances and vote for UPP. We have nothing to loose. When you’re at the bottom, there’s no way to go but up?

      Bye, bye forever Gaston Dictator Browne.

  2. Emergency Medical Services were there attending to Ms. Barthley. There was blood on her neck. The detectives spoke with Bowen. He handed over to Sergeant Edwards a black PIETRO BERETTA .25 PISTOL which contained 8 rounds of ammunition. The police recovered a spent shell and other items from the scene of the incident. Bowen was detained.

  3. Bowen, a lawyer and accountant by profession, was charged for the murder of Tessa Barthley. Ms. Barthley was shot in her neck on 16 th December 2003 outside Bowen’s office at Nevis Street, St. John’s. She died on 23 rd December 2003.

    • @ tessa Bartley please take your medication…. I think everyone get your point! U are so repetitive I dont think anyone reads your messages anymore.

    • I wonder why is it that you keep repeating the same thing. Did he not went to jail service his time. What happen to those unsolved murder and their killers is still at large. Either UPP and ABLP are cleaned. Remember the bible say sin is sin.

  4. They heard what sounded like a firecracker. Shortly thereafter, Constable Charles went towards his vehicle which was parked in the vicinity of Bowen’s office. He saw Bowen sitting on the steps of the building which housed his office. He saw Ms. Barthley lying on the ground not far from his motor car.

    BLOOD IS ON YOUR SHOULDERS
    Kill I today you cannot kill I tomorrow
    Murder
    Your insides must be hollow
    How does it feel to take the life of another
    Murderer
    Blood is on your shoulders
    Kill I today you cannot kill I tomorrow
    Murder
    Your insides must be hollow
    How does it feel to take the life of another
    Yes, you can hide from man but not your conscience
    You eat the bread of sorrow drink the wine of violence
    Allow yourself to be conquered by the serpent
    Why did you disobey the first commandment
    Walk through the valley I feel no pestilence
    God is my witness and he is my evidence
    Lift up mine eyes from whence cometh help
    You coulda never escape this judgement

    Murderer
    Blood is on your shoulders
    Kill I today you cannot kill I tomorrow
    Murder
    Your insides must be hollow
    HOW DOES IT FEEL TO TAKE THE LIFE OF ANOTHER?

  7. Not only have they placed a nail, but they have also dug their own grave. All that is left is for us to do the burial on the 18th. And put the sign RIP in the grave.

      • Tenman poor you! I can see that the redeem team is driving you and the other ALP minions crazy. You are perhaps thinking of how your inept government allowed persons loved ones to be decompose and small up the place at Holborton.

        The writer of this drivel Lanny Bozo, is becoming more and more desperate as the time gets near for him to leave office. I just hope that the people will not have to drag him out of the PM office.

  8. Mami_Wata and Papa_Elegba rattling bones would like you to know, just like Serial Murderers, Serial Rapist, Serial Thieves aka Kleptomaniacs, our Nation can lay claim to a new category of #serial_criminals, and this is 🥁🥁🥁 #SERIAL_ASS_KISSERS, thanks to Fitzroy from Wash ‘n Basin.

    Read the first few lines and the MO – Modus Operandi was clear and white, as Snow in Salmon.

  9. Read: DEAR EDITOR
    Read: FITZROY

    Moving right along.
    Why read?

  10. @ fizroy, how much did Alp pay u to right that? Unless u are already on the payroll…. I dont think anyone has time to read your nonsense. I leave this with you: RED DEAD…. lmao

  11. We should vote UPP for several reasons but I will just state a few here.

    UPP did not send us home without pay for two months for refusing to take a vaccine, ABLP did.

    UPP did not use tear gas, mostly rubber bullets and a few live rounds on us for refusing to take the vaccine.

    UPP did not promote self enrichment among the politicians as did the leader of the ABLP.

    UPP did not have 26+ failed investment/projects.

    Look, there are so many more reason but I will stop there.

    You are likely to say UPP could not have done those things because there were not in power; exactly, ABLP was and they did so never again.

    A vote for ABLP is to say I appreciate their stewardship but I do not.

  12. All that u numberd about the upp u can go 1-100 with all the time gaston an ablp dist us antiguans an non national but people like u will never talk because u must sing loud to eat red bread wile they eating lobster and shrimp some people like u will give 1-10 reasons y we should worship satan

  13. Why did Harold Lovell decline from the debate if everything he were saying hold somekind of veracity?.. honestly we the people in Antigua and Barbuda have no confidence in this present slate of candidates within the UPP… we need a debate between the political leaders or else you will see what we do on the 18 of January.

    • Captain Lovell your UPP ship is sinking. The ship seems to need an overhaul. Many of your crew members have jumped off board. Your plans, ideas & policies are not working. There is not much more you can tell us what to do. So my advice to you Capt Lovell, cry out May day May day & you will sure get help from Comrade Gaston

  15. I agree this is crap. Remember UPP 1st brought in the uniforms for poor people that can’t afford it to get it. 2nd. The school meal program.3 gospel concerts I’m not a Christian but I love me some gospel etc… UPP was unto a Good thing for antigua until the ALP stopped investors from coming did alot of shady thing while in and out of power. All now we have yet to see mariah beautify antigua with the flowers but what has happened in the years she’s bin in power? Nothing. What has Gaston done for antigua except for building 3 businesses with covid money that antiguans so pose to get, start a housing project for his children to profit off of, lied about him and his wife talking the vaccine etc… Come on antigua people stop being so blind and open up your eyes

  16. Talking about shooting in the foot, what about Michael Browne. He messed up the E-books by not being vigilant but greedy and self-enrichment . Living in luxury. Driving several expensive vechicles in a day and living in luxury. Where is he living now? At the hill back of Royalton. Where is his election office down on All Saints road. He did absolutely nothing in his constituents. He is now calling people begging for a chance and want to discuss projects, like roads and water. This guy is nuff, full of himself and have done nothing to be voted in again. He is looking full pension. Nail in coffin.
    Next is lennox Weston – greedy, selfish and fat. Did not care about the people he represent and only now showing up. Fat man time to dance yourself into finding another Job.
    Samantha the sports men and women in your constituency are the ones that going to put you out of representative politics. You have bluffed the young for years , they are fed up. They now have one of their own , young , energetic and community oriented. You have driven the nail in your own coffin.
    Cutie – sweet talking and crooking . Don’t want to be too long . Robin old Feeble and greedy.
    Nail you them coffin. All of them in Day.

  17. Only one question the nation want an answer to is QUESTION 11 ……..why should we the people vote UPP the party is weak they can’t defeat Gaston Browne labour…come on let’s rise above all party affiliation and think of the country…NEXT LEVEL

  18. Captain Lovell your UPP ship is sinking. The ship seems to need an overhaul. Many of your crew members have jumped off board. Your plans, ideas & policies are not working. There is not much more you can tell us what to do. So my advice to you Capt Lovell, cry out May day May day & you will sure get help from Comrade Gaston

  19. I don’t know why people are talking about UPP. I’m not affiliated with any party whatsoever. They are all humans not GODS. I vote based on results. I voted against UPP in the last election because they became stagnant. Now now I will be voting against ALP because they are selfish and tyrants and their leader is very immature. As it pertains to results, they have nothing significant to show. ALP ministers have no back bone and allow their leader to do as he please which only cause the people of Antigua to suffer. Why would I vote for any ALP minister? I’m voting for UPP this time and if they can’t present results, I’ll vote them out in the next election. Simple!!!
