PM Browne says his party’s document is not a response to the UPP’s Book of Achievements

14

On August 10, The United Progressive Party (UPP) launched its promised Book of Major Achievements2004-2014, which chronicles the work, programmes, policies and the Party’s overall accomplishments during its 10-year tenure in public office.

Harold Lovell, the Political Leader of the Party, lauded the compilation of the UPP’s accomplishments and states that the electronic version of the book will be available immediately, with distribution of a limited number of hard copies to follow.

He notes that what started out as a document of seven pages quickly mushroomed into an 80-page book. And while the publication is comprehensive, he says, it does not cover all that the UPP was able to accomplish in its two terms.

Among its feats, Lovell notes that the UPP was able to completely change and restore the image of Antigua and Barbuda, which, internationally, had been viewed as a rogue nation.

He also reminds the public of the many social programmes the Party introduced, many of which are still in existence.

Agriculture, Public Works, and new legislation for the maintenance of children, tabled in 2008, are among the other achievements of which the Political Leader says the Party is proud.

  1. Red Dead! Gaston move your RH. You tink awe chupit? Desperation. So you had this picture book done since Convention, with no circulation… now UPP launched a comprehensive book setting the record straight on their 10 years, yours suddenly pop up being pushed hard this time?
    Anyway.. to hell with your pretty pictures. Where are the E-Books you dumped at Cooks. Why have you left out that waste of tens of millions of dollars?
    The people need relief from the rising cost of living. We need a higher minimum wage and government wages. We need JOBS Gaston. JOBS!
    Not everyone can get $20,000 US per month in rent from the investor of the failed WISEZ project… or collect $540,000 in rent at SouthMall. Remember dat!
    So move your picture book and your RH Gaston. UPP ALL THE WAY!

  2. When pigs fly. You expect me to believe that. I challenged you to produce an ABLP manifest of achievements so that the voting public can make a comparison/contrast between your tour of duty as leader(World Boss) over the affairs of Antigua and Barbuda for the past two terms and UPP two terms.

    Low and behold you hastily answered the school bell. You running scared and you can’t hide. Your a failure. You have plunged the country deeper into skulduggery.

    Your CHIEF of STAFF use to March and picket the PM’s office holding up his placard. “Don’t sell my passport “. He LIE-no-HELL. A charlatan as you to refer to members of the UPP.

    All a u are a bunch of damn FRAUDS!! Riding on that slippery slope.

    Asot waiting on you and the voters. The next 90 days will be very interesting.

  3. Mr PM: Thanks for the clarification. I really thought it was a scrapbook. No lie. The amount of errors that were in the book and how the author switched between I and we, I couldn’t take the document seriously. Next time please hire a proof reader and please work on getting some high res photos. It would greatly improve on the book. I have to give it to the UPP, they did a good job with their book.

  4. Well, COPY CAT. COPY CAT, COPY CAT
    The UPP is the better party.
    The UPP produced a comprehensive compilation of their achievements!
    You have a photo album. You don’t even have the finesse to craft a decent document.

    If you have failed with something so simple- ( somebody in 4th Form could have done a better job) it is little wonder that the country is in such a downward spiral.

    YOU ARE A COPY CAT WHO CAN’T EVEN COPY PROPERLY!

    YOU TRIED TO COPY THE UPP AND YOU FAILED.
    YOUR ATTEMPT IS ELEMENTARY, SHODDY AND CHILDISH!
    FAILURE

    WHERE THE 2 BILLION OF CIP MONEY GORN

    GASTON’S PICTURE BOOK IS A JOKE:
    ABLP TRIED TO IMITATE THE UPP. INSTEAD, THEY EMBARRASSED THEMSELVES.

  6. Well well well, where are all the minions who complained that UPP needed a book to talk about accomplishments and that people were suppose to just be aware rather than being reminded….

    So what’s the reasons given now for ABLP’s ‘accomplishments’…you guys are just so hypocritical, you are just like DONALD TRUMP, A narcissist. I cannot for the life of me understand how people cannot see straight through the lies and deceptions of the labour party.

  7. I read the UPP’s book and it was somewhat impressive. Haven’t read this ALP document, but they have put out impressive manifestos etc. in the past. My thinking is that ALP helped develop tourism back in the day which helped the economy. But, tourism is past its peak now. We can’t keep expanding that sector. There is not enough water, land and other resources and services for that, and families will not thrive if everyone works in that sector alone. UPP cleaned up the way government was running to some extent and also introduced some useful social programmes. But we need more entreprenurship and other self-help options to be more focused on in the future. Both ALP and UPP suffered from corruption allegations. People get positions and then try to give all the government contracts to friends and family. We don’t want a competition between two sets of people to see whose friends get the chance to benefit this time. We want all opportunities to be clearly advertised to the general public, board members etc. to recuse themselves from decisions when their friends are applicants, decisions to favour persons with the requisite experience or training and a good price so the taxpayers get value for money. Not sure either of those parties can currently be trusted to do what is in the best interests of ALL the people.

  8. The UPP LEADS the WAY
    The ABLP follows:

    The UPP produces a Book of Achievements
    The ABLP produces a Book of Achievements ( rush job; shoddy work)

    The UPP highlight the horrible water situation
    The ABLP run to fix the water situation ( remember ABLP promised to fix it in 14 days)

    The UPP commit to giving out water tanks
    The ABLP now giving out water tanks

    The UPP commit to a minimum wage
    The ABLP NOW talking about minimum wage

    Well, well, well.

    THE UPP LEADS THE WAY
    THE ABLP JUST FOLLOWS

  9. There are so many spelling and grammatical errors in the ABLP Book of LIES AND ERRORS.

    Example: Look out for SCHOOLARSHIPS”
    That person obviously needs to go back to school.

    I guess this is what happens when you hurry.
    The ABLP felt deeply ashamed that the UPP produced a BOOK OF ACHIEVEMENTS so in 48 hours they did a rush to produce one.
    Wow! Spelling mistakes! Grammatical errors
    SHAME ON YOU ABLP!

  10. BTW: The ABLP is claiming credit for UPP achievements:

    The Airport- ground was broken in Nov 2011 and save for a few light bulbs etc was complete
    The ADOMS BUILDING- See Observer May 12 2014
    The TREASURY building
    The Five Islands School

  11. The UPP appears to be better organized, than the ABLP and this speaks volumes to the #Independents and former UPP members.

    JP

  12. The ABLP is a disgrace. They represent everything that’s wrong and corrupt in a government.
    They most go….
    Rise up Antigua, take your country and lands back. Not much left for the people.

  13. WHERE ARE:

    JUST SAYING
    FROM THE SIDELINES
    TENMAN
    DAVE RAY
    BUDDY BLOKE

    TO PRAISE AND DEFEND THIS SCRAPBOOK!

  14. Is it the same person writing the SAME thing over and over again?
    Geez. At least try to vary what you’re saying.
    You’re giving me an aneurysm.
