PM Browne continues to insist that Sean Bird wants to leave UPP

29

Prime Minister Gaston Browne told Antigua Newsroom:

Sean Bird has told several people that he is still a Labour man and that he regrets joining the UPP. Ask any of the staff at ZDK and they can corroborate the claim.

He even unjustifiably blamed me for his decision to join UPP, instead of taking responsibility for his actions.

They only issue I had with Sean Bird, was his collection of $5500 monthly from the treasury, over an 18 month period without showing up for work.

This caused me to terminate his employment to prevent the abuse of public resources.

It was expected that he would have repaid the amount since it was not earned. However, he has not pay back the amounts collected.

I maintain my position that Sean says that he is not happy with the UPP and he will leave the party after he loses the next general elections.

In fact, I was told that he even plans to migrate to the US and has started to make plans to that effect.

He has no choice but to deny, deny, deny at this point but, the truth always rises to the top and this will be proven in due course.

Sean Bird said that joining the UPP was a big mistake and he can’t wait to leave.

      SEAN BIRD , I listened to a program on ZDK on BRUCE program and you admitted that you received payment from the Government and you did NOT work for this payment. Sean , I am very upset and just to let know that you are very DISHONEST. You should be DRAGGED to court to payback this money. Our Family would Not be voting for you . We have voted UPP in the past. Now my Family of 12 will vote for ABLP ( Hon. Maria Browne). Sean, what you did is border line FRAUD. You are very DISHONEST.

  1. Gaston Risperdal Browne, how many unearned paychecks Maria Browne collected so far?

  2. If true Gassy (and I doubt it, because its coming from your own damn mout’), can you please do everyone a favour and do your job of running Antigua & Barbuda … pretty please!

    • @ FRAUD BRIXTONIAN…No doubt that you support Sean accepting $5500 for 18 months and Not showing up for work.
      BRIXTONIAN please find a job.

  3. …Papa_Eiega, has alerted Jumbee_Picknee …to, the A, B, C’s of the A.B.L.P.
    …and, how they manage the Country!
    …A – ASSUME nothing, that they say!
    …except, you pour salt n pepper on it
    right away.
    …B – BELIEVE nothing, due to all the lies,
    they’ve told us along, the way.
    …C – CHALLENGE/CHECK everything!
    …for, the proof is in the pudding.
    …but, I got this feeling!
    …the People, are neither buying nor eating.

    • Here’s an appropriate ABLP acronym for the current malaise in Antigua & Barbuda @ Ras Smood:

      A – Anything goes for cabinet members for self-enrichment schemes.

      B – Browne, the worst Prime Minister since Lester Bird.

      L – Lying about improving the lives of Antiguans and the economy, since 2014-2022.

      P – Pensioners & Payments being denied to the citizens that they have worked so hard for.

      You’ve given me an idea, I might just work on an acronym for Gassy’s terrible behaviour on “Teargas Sunday” … Hmmm!

  4. “They only issue I had with Sean Bird, was his collection of $5500 monthly from the treasury, over an 18 month period without showing up for work.” I’m not sure how the UPP’s hierarchy and the people of Rural East thought this man was a good choice to be a candidate. I thought the UPP was about change? I was disappointed back then. I’m even more disappointed now.

  5. SEAN BIRD , I listened to a program on ZDK on BRUCE program and you admitted that you received payment from the Government and you did NOT work for this payment.

    • You are talking about fraud. How about Maria not showing for work and getting paid tens of thousand per month. How about all the government lands acquired for less than $3.00 a sq.ft. You should’ve talk about dishonesty until you look at all the creative ways this family got rich with you the people’s assets.
      Fools are blind and will be loyal because they understand not. To heck with lying politicians just trying to retain power.

  6. Well well Gaston you desperate bad you trying with every ounce fot get back in power. Nobody will ever believe a continual liar like you the Devil is the authour of lies. Just know that red dead.

  7. I believe he has said so. I have my reasons. I know him well enough to deduce that his decision to run with the UPP was done in protest of the PM and the. action taken by the Central Executive before the 2014 elections, and now his recent termination from a paid position.

    I can’t say enough how disappointed I am by his poor decision. And I have shared my disappointment with him personally. I still consider him to be a good guy but an immature feeling controlled his thought process when he chose to make this unwise decision.

    The UPP, on the other hand is clearly only using him as a political football in light of their disgust for his family legacy. They wish to see his family name relegated to the dustbin of history.

    In the process, they are able to have him use his media house to get their message out. They could not hope that the Rural East voters will flip so significantly so as to give him the nod.

    There are two or three boxes in that constituency that he must devour with great acceptation. We will see how wrong I’m proven to be in due course…

    • @Dave Ray…Gaston Browne with this statement, regarding Sean Bird, as #Ghost_Worker under the ABLP’s administration is not news. It’s the norm abs practice in the PUBLUC SECTOR for decades, and non, no not one(besides George Walters – convicted, went to 1735 and H. Humphreys – convicted then pardoned), again 99.99999% of the crooks WHO’RE in charge of the Ponzi Scheme conducted out of the Parliament building are neither charged much less convicted for defrauding the Public Treasury.

      The PM Gaston Browne statement regarding Sean Bird’s salary while working under the ABLP Administration is exactly why, the Nation not only need INDEPENDENT FORENSIC AUDITING, it needs to enforce the. Laws regarding these types of criminal activities across the board….

      This is where body’s like the OECS and CARICOM need strengthening, with oversight Committees, to regulate government official #CROOKEDNESS…

      Jumbee_Picknee knows…
      …time is longer than rope and curses/blessings are generational. So, they can run but they can’t hide.

  8. Really now Gaston? Have you heard what your colleagues are saying about you? Most can’t stand you and are plotting how to get rid of you and overtake the seat of labour power. It keeps a few up late at night just plotting your demise. That Mr Hitler Trump, is where you should focus your attention. You’re a Prime Minister of Melee and I suspect by next week you’ll move on to a new story. Focus on getting the RO plant at Crabbes fixed. Do something constructive. You’re still on duty!

  9. There are a lot of crooked screws in these politicians pockets, but the croooked games that they play each head will surely be cut down one by one like the Uk. The Bible speaks truth. The wicked shall fall and an Antichrist will rise but we will have to choose our faith. Where is Gassy these days? What is he doing for the country these days? Can we truly trust them to carry on this nation. We can only trust in the Most High to deliver us through the red sea moments of life.

  10. Gaston you are making a fool of yourself and sound desperate. What, you are trying to save Maria from defeat? Has Sean gotten more of are we money than you? We know you are too smart to take it directly from the treasury. Stop preaching as we the enlightened ones are still not going to vote for you or Maria.

  11. $5500 for 18 months and NOT showing up for work. This is Fraud. Sean , You are an AWFUL person. You should be DISQUALIFIED from running for politics. SHAME SHAME Sean.

  12. Who allowed Sean to collect 5500 $$ per month?
    Imagine how many more minions are collecting unearned paychecks under Gaston Browne’s, my government leadership.
    Imagine the number of ghost workers in this economic powerhouse creative enrichment scheme.
    Imagine one horseman collecting 4 paychecks while working for a ghostworker ABLP ministers name Maria.
    Gaston too should not be collecting paychecks to mind people’s business and to borrow the country out of debt.
    If Sean wasn’t on the other side, you the Dawg would have remained silent.
    Just like you didn’t know and say Asot was corrupt until until he called you out. Just like you kept the scandal involving Mike Freeland until he was running against Maria.
    Ivor Bird is bawling for his 75,000 $$$.
    ZDK government advertisements revenue were reduced by over 3,000$$ as soon as you took power.
    Why would Sean want to be around you.
    You’re selfish, DESPICABLE

  13. If Sean is truly a labour man, who is keeping him in UPP? According to you Sean spoke to somebody who spoke to somebody, who told you. Why you so lie? Taking government money and assets and not working for it would disqualify you and all your ministers from public office.

  14. Hey Gaston Clown 🤡.
    I am noticing that your intent is to employ the same strategy used last election.
    In 2018 to clear a path for Maria, you chased Mr Freeland by publicizing his involvement in money scandal.
    Now, you are accusing Sean.

    GASTON, BWOY GOO WEH WID U CHUPITNESS.

  15. Why are you so focussed on Sean? Is it because he may just defeat your wife. Why don’t you go after the other three candidates? I heard on your radio station this morning that there are now six. You labour people love to cause confusion. Or at least try to. Nasty set of people.

  16. Which government department allowed him to collect $5500 per month for 18 Months without him showing up for work. We’re their time sheets? Who approved the payments. If what the PM said is true, then others are implicated in this case of fraud. Additionally, why are we only learning about this now? How long was the PM aware of this? Is this being made public now only for political points? Very concerning.

  17. These are the nature of UPP Candidates…MURDERERS , FRAUDSTERS , etc. This Guy taking money and not showing for work. $5500 monthly for 18 months. This is tax payers money. Hon.Gaston Browne , Sean must payback these payments.

  18. Wow 😳😳 wow wow Prime Minister GB I’m hoping that you are following the news on the testimony of Leroy King you will be ashamed of yourself you cannot participate in our elections

  19. SHARN Behaving like he is so righteous.And he had a baby girl, saw him with the child in Epicurean, with two little tin a milk and a little bread

  20. Government owing workers for years and not putting on interest for the inconvenience is wickedness as well.
    Under which administration was he working for and receiving salary.
    Right now alot of persons are on board being paid ridiculous amount of money for nothing but only if they fall out with this government they will be exposed.

    Citizens of Antigua Red is Dead get rid of the Labour pain this man is going insane and just wants to stay in power for his personal gain

  21. Shawn is Running against Gaston Brown wife , so what do you expect? Knowing Gastón he will continue to go after Shawn on his radio day after day relentlessly. The amount of money snd government resources that is being spent in that constituency above any other it is almost impossible for the opposition to win that seat. Unless the people do like Grenada and disregarded the pre-election spending and give away and punished the incumbent for this tactic.
