PM Browne: Lovell-Led UPP Can’t Unseat ABLP!

23

POINTE XPRESS: Speculation that there could be an electoral upset in Antigua and Barbuda at the next general election, similar to that which was witnessed in Grenada last week, has been dismissed by the Political Leader of the ruling Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party, Gaston Browne.

Speaking with Pointe Xpress, Prime Minister Browne said the situation in Antigua and Barbuda differs greatly from that of Grenada. “I don’t know that the UPP is in a position to say that they have younger leadership than the ABLP.

Their leader is a retired person, Harold Lovell, who is on his way out. I don’t think they will have that kind of hope in Harold Lovell who is on his way out of politics. “Contrast that with Grenada where we saw a 44- year old coming up against a 75-year old Dr. Keith Mitchell,” he opined.

The prime minister said it is clear that the Grenadian people voted for the future, but he can’t see that voting for the Lovell-led UPP would have the same result in Antigua and Barbuda.

He expressed the view that his government has been far more impactful on the lives of Antiguans and Barbudans than the deposed New National Party government in Grenada.

“You’re not comparing similar conditions. In fact they are quite contrasting in favour of the ABLP. “I believe too, that the quality of the team led by young Mitchell in Grenada is far superior to what Harold Lovell has presented. We all know that what they have presented is a group of losers and charlatans, individuals with not much to contribute to national development,” Browne observed.

 

He maintains that the people of Antigua and Barbuda are intelligent and have demonstrated great wisdom in making decisions in their best interest.

“You have a government that has performed, has made some major decisions such as bringing the UWI campus here as well as growing the national economy by an average of over 5 percent for the last eight years, except for the year impacted by the pandemic,” he stated.

Based on the performance of his government, PM Browne is confident that the people of Antigua and Barbuda will demonstrate continued support for the ABLP when the polls are called.

The ABLP’s political leader revealed that the party’s manifesto will not contain “mundane plans”. Rather, it will deliver what he termed a “next level” development vision for the country

  1. Happy pride month first and foremost. 8 more hours and it will be all over. #LGBTQ.

    I will never vote for a man who is close to living his 3 scores and ten. As a registered democrat I refused to vote in the last USA election because of this.

    • Ganster Browne,Hitler Browne,Ebola Browne,Tap Dawg Browne,Beat Women Browne,call the Elections,NOW. So that we the people could vote/throw you and yours out of Office on your arses.

  2. Mr PM you are using reverse psychology on the people of Antigua and Barbuda. Why are you giving advice to voters about a Lovell-led UPP party going into the next general election? If in your opinion that a Lovell led UPP cannot unseat The ABLP then it should work in your favour. Shouldn’t it? Why are you consistently complaining about Harold Lovell? You must have a great fear for the man who is destined to be the next Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda. Take a good look at the members of your cabinet compare to the candidates of the UPP
    The majority of the ABLP candidates are way over 60 years who already past retirement age. Remember Sir, you yourself is not too far from 60. Besides what five percent growth in eight years you are referring to Sir? Inflation is high in this country which includes: cost of living, rise in fuel, poor road infrastructure, lack of water supply, no stimulus, pensioners can’t get paid on time, public servants being paid late, unemployment is high, no increase in public servants salaries, lack of fire tenders, rise in crime and the list goes on and on. The candidates of the UPP is mixed with both experience and mostly young people compare to the ABLP.

  3. GASTON IS RIGHT.

    HAROLD IS MUCH MUCH OLDER THAN THE YOUNGER SPRITELY ABLED BODIES OF CUTIE BENJAMIN, MOLWYN JOSEPH AND ROBIN YEAR WOOD.

    THE ABLP ARE SO BLATANT…….THEY KNOW QUOTING HAROLD’S AGE WILL SHOW UP THEIR ARCHAIC MEMBERS AND YET THEY DO IT……..JUST LIKE THE ARTICLE IN A PREVIOUS VERSION OF THE ANTIGUA NEWSROOM SHOWING ‘THE EXCELLENT PSYCHOANALYSIS OF GASTON BROWNE’

    THESE PEOPLE ARE SICK AND PATRONISING, AS THOUGH ANTIGUANS ARE FOOLEY, AND BRING WICKHAM TO PROVE THEIR DUMB ELEMENTS: USEFUL IDIOTS.

  4. Ah wah dis ya, more deflection, diversion and ‘dead cat’ narratives!

    Has anyone else noticed how quiet Gaston ‘Gassy’ Browne has gone on the implementation of Antigua’s nationwide water system, after running up he mout’ a couple of months ago about completion by the 30th of September? Loser!

    Anyway, for your delectation, here’s my dashboard regarding Gaston’s island-wide promise:

    Today, Thursday the 30th of June there are ONLY 92 days left (exactly 3 months) to complete.

    If the Grenadians can wake up and discard their former leader for broken manifesto promises – SO CAN ANTIGUANS!

    Look out, look out, Gaston dey bout …

  5. MY SOUL IS CRYING FROM THE GRAVE………HELP HELP, BRING JUSTICE SWIFT AND SOON.

  6. HOW OLD WAS VC BIRD? WHEN THEY USED TO CALL HIM SENILE: MEMBERS OF HIS OLD PARTY.

    THE BIBLE SAYS WISDOM IS VIRTUE , AND THE GREY HAIR OF WISDOM IS BETTER THAN THE STRENGTH OF YOUTH

  7. Citizens. I implore you to ask yourselves, family, friends, enemies, coworkers and the unemployed. One simple question.

    Are you and the country of Antigua and Barbuda better off today after 8 years of the Gaston Browne led Cupboard of Deplorables?

    If your answer is yes. Vote for them. If your answer is no vote there asses out of office.

    Vote your conscience and what is good for the country as a whole!

    The one percent is not the majority of voters. The people that you know that are looking for work, coworkers, family, friends, pensioners and your enemies are who has and always will decide the outcome of any election.

    Be not be persuaded by word salads. Look around and listen to the population talking about how well or not this present government has performed.

    Judge them on performance and delivery of basic services that a government is elected to provide to
    the people that they serve.

    Dis diluted PM is not fit to govern. He is impulsive, short tempered, all about self, has anger management issues, vindictive, controlling, lie with a smile and a manipulator of the TRUTH! I’m my opinion. Based on pass behavior and utterances.

    Still waiting on the magic shot that John Deloria promised the country to combat covid and Ebola.

    Where is the Hard Rock Resort, The VCBIA Marriott International, The Best Western Hotel, Callalo Cay, The Ritz Carlton…worst of all where is the damn wata that should be running out of our households, businesses, schools, “Elvis Shoppe” and “Rum Shop” radio that should be flowing with good pressure 24 hours a day, seven days a week?

    Remember the TEAR-GASSING; REMEMBER NO JAB – NO JOB. Remember All the ground FAKINGS. Not one project propose has come to fruition.

    This Government and Leader have FAILED!

    Case Closed! Call the convention and await your faith.

      HELL TO THE NO- VOTE DEM OUT. TOO MUCH STARVATION AND POVERTY IN DIS COUNTRY FROM ABLP POLICIES.

  9. King Lyadd Lovell Limpy Joe will soon ride off into the sunset on the Wilmoth Daniel STRIPPER POLE BUS 🚌

    • JUSTICE FOR NIGEL.

      WILL THE PM SHORT BROKER THAT RIPPED OFF THE $3,000,000 FROM THE TREASURY BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE? THIS GOVERNMENT IS ALL A COVER UP OPERATION PROTECTING EACH OTHER AND NOT LOOKING OUT FOR THE GOOD OF THE NATION.

      ALL ABOUT ENRICHING THEMSELVES AND NOTHING FOR ANYONE ELSE.

  10. Is it me, or has anyone else noticed that – on the whole – ABLP “generational” supporters have great difficulty on being articulate on the written word?

    MAYBE IT IS ME … 🤣🤣🤣

  11. PM Browne…

    Term Limits helps with accountability, transparency, growth etc. We must implement TERM LIMITS, to get rid of the stale, rancid odor permeating the Halls, Walls and Seats in Parliament.

  12. They don’t need to unseat ABLP. Scumbag Gaston Browne and the rest of his ABLP posse is doing that all on their own.

    They continue to practice their creative self enrichment scheme.

    They are acquiring lands for way less than the going rate. These lands include the land near the former navy base, the lands near Long Bay, the property called Barnacle Point, property in Jolly Harbour. They give away crown lands at their whim to attempt swing things in their favor.

    He has done human trafficking and kidnapping, just ask Mehul Choksi.

    Then there’s the case with Nigel Christian where he was murdered because he knew the truth behind the “forged” signatures. Up to now the ABLP henchmen are covering up their involvement with this heinous crime.

    Retirees who have paid into the system can’t get their pensions much less paid on time all the while every single ABLP scumbag is living a lavish lifestyle, not paying a single tax on anything, travelling on our tax dollars and taking as many showers as they want.

    Now watch the latest development with Jolly Beach hotel. No surprise that Gaston Browne will come up owning a piece of that property.

    Thanks to all the folks who continue to vote this POS in. Pure nincompoops. Antigua continues to slide into corruption and soon into oblivion. Antigua is fast becoming like Haiti.

    We still have power cuts in this day and age. Yes folks keep voting in these scumbags and watch Antigua sink into a cesspool of corruption.

  13. How come the election is not called and he have so much pride and confidence. When this humpty dumpty fall he will wish he had kept silent

  14. A recent picture of the Prime Minister shows him to have lost weight, looking a lot older than his years and developing a round back. I hope the PM is well as in my view, he doesn’t look so. He probably should concentrate on his health as Antigua will outlive all of us.
