Nothing opponent does can stop his progress, says Watts, after DCA destroys his billboard in Potters to make room for parking


The United Progressive Party (UPP) Candidate for St. George, Algernon “Serpent” Watts, says there is nothing the Antigua Labour Party (ALP) candidate can do to stop his strides in the constituency.

Watts’ comment comes after one of his billboards, erected in Potters, was demolished by the Development Control Authority (DCA) on Monday, January 9.

The UPP Candidate says he was notified about the incident by someone in the constituency and, at the time, he was unsure what was going on.

However, he acknowledges that he had received a phone call from someone at the DCA last week, informing him that the billboard was creating a difficulty.  The claim, he says, was that the space was needed for a parking area if there was too much traffic on the road.

The UPP Candidate says he rejects that explanation, noting that the headquarters of Dr. Jacqui Quinn, a former UPP Candidate for the area, had been sited in that exact location.  (Quinn’s branch office was subsequently destroyed in a fire, suspected to be arson.)

Watts states that the campaign manager of his political opponent, Dean Jonas, also holds the position of deputy at the DCA; and so he is not surprised that the destructive action was taken.

While the Labour Party appears willing to wage a billboard war, Watts says, he reminds Jonas that election paraphernalia do not vote and his opponent’s days in St. George are numbered.

Meanwhile, some members of the public say they are fed up with the number of billboards being erected, especially since the elections are so close.

One woman says that candidates should stop putting them up at all – adding that she is ready to make a change in this country and billboards “will not save them.”

  1. WOW ! The ABLP is consistent in its approach to use the machinery of state to victimize its opponents.

    How wicked can these people be! However, there is a mighty force and SERPENT please remember that no weapon formed against you shall prosper.

    • KNIGHT you are just BIG MOUTH. As of January 19 th.2023 you would not have a job at Observer Radio. Observer and UPP would NOT have any use for you after the BIG defeat by ABLP. You are just a BIG BIG clown KNIGHT.

  2. Strangely enough, if the elections were based on the best designed and looking Posters/Billboards, UPP would win hands down, and closely behind following them would be Assot Michael’s. Why? The posters/billboard design teams and marketing team or PR Team, took their time to design and align the colors – bright colors. The candidates pop-out of the posters, you can clearly see it.

    When you look at the ABLP’s posters/billboards, they look like something someone took out of granny’s trunk – and this is no lie, because I am ABLP. The dark color and theme hide the candidates. I mean, almost all of the candidates are dark to begin with; so my question goes, didn’t the design or PR team see this before spending all that money. It is as if no one cared about the product they intended to sell, which is the candidate and the party. And don’t come telling me is the color – cause heck no.

    I am very much disappointed in what looks to be a rush or used over from time memorial for the ABLP posters/billboards. THIS IS 2023 NOT 1976!!!

    Posters/Billboards are a part of any organization’s Public Relations and marketing strategies.
    IF you don’t put care and time and good planning designs in them, you are asking for a flop of what you intend to sell. Come on ABLP, whom ever you gave that job/task to do, needs to be fired – I will even go further that maybe we should have asked the UPP’s design team to help us out there. SMH!!

    • Wonderful observation my dear CIP Investor…. IJS Marketing is Key for the sale of any Product or Service. I am glad you pointed that out.

  3. To Add. . . As marketing and PRing goes, Posters/Billboards give a clear indication of what you are “expected” to get – Clear OR Dark Future? Have Mercy!!

  4. The biggest LLC in the UPP. Daniel has already warned us about this deceitful snake. And we, the people of this country, were fooled by him in 2004 telling us how Lester Bird was removing documents from the prime minister’s office, and we all went up there to stop the stealing of the document. Only to find out after the election that nothing go so. It was his deceitfulness that got us to believe his story. And he never apologized for that. But as Bob Marley sang, “You can fool some people sometimes, but you can’t fool all the people all of the time”. And we will stop this snake from ever coming anywhere close to our parliament. He thinks he can do whar Lennox Linton did in Dominica.

    • FTS he is such a bad politician. Look how he makes this issue all about him. Its just ABLP people who will park in that area? His poster being there more important than his constituents being able to park? A smart politician would have spun this in a way to make impression that he was the one who pushed for the parking area to be created

    • @Ras Smood…and so too should you. “Obey the law,” stop using IDENTITY THEFT, to pretend you’re who you ain’t.
      Now, keep eating the 💩💩💩from my ass to power your thoughts.

  5. Agree with serpent, Jonas need do nothing since Serpent is his own worse enemy. Politicians (atleast those who win) tend to be persons feel care about them. Its all about Serpy not the constituents


    • MISS Night, how is ERICA? Your son taking his meds? You being a real father to him or a deadbeat baby daddy? And you enjoy the memories made behind the old time DRIVE-IN MOVIE? Boy those were the days with you in the Mill Reef Warehouse eh. Your file big big like the tank in St. Phillip, so much paper and folders to pull out. Careful! Hope u paying the IRS dem taxes since you brag on radio that you have a U.S. PASSPORT and don’t care about Antigua passport.

    • KNIGHT you are just BIG MOUTH. As of January 19 th.2023 you would not have a job at Observer Radio. Observer and UPP would NOT have any use for you after the BIG defeat by ABLP. You are just a BIG BIG clown KNIGHT.

    • Yes Knight, the Double Standards in Antigua keep hitting home….. Billboards do not vote and the people of St. George will show ‘Do nothing Dean the Door’…

    • @Phd in….from analysing these post of “ABLP minions,” there’s one Perron with almost a dozen aliases who sits at probably three computers and two cell phone, type their response on all five pieces of equipment, and hit send simultaneously.
      It gives the appearance, of multiple individuals have a convo, on the topic.
