“A bunch of jokers”- PM dismisses UPP slate

Prime Minister Gaston Browne has criticised the slate of candidates unveiled on Sunday by the opposition United Progressive Party (UPP) at a Special General Council.

Browne’s message to political leader of the UPP Harold Lovell is to “wheel and come again”.

Twelve new candidates make up the slate of the UPP with four of whom can be termed veterans, of which one is female-the sole female contesting on the opposition’s ticket.

Browne said the UPP candidates bring nothing to the table, and added that some of them have pending matters before the court or have had previous run ins with the law.

He noted that nobody will take them (the UPP candidates) seriously.

“When you look at our opponents they are a bunch of jokers, you see the team that was rolled out by the UPP? That is supposed to be our most significant political opponents?

“I mean when you look at that team you have individuals who are before the court on charges of wrong doing, you have individuals who are known to ONDCP (Office of National Drug Control and Money Laundering Policy)…you have about 12 of the 17 candidates who do not have an education, a secondary education, people who have not achieved anything in their lives, people who obviously do not have the capacity to represent anyone, so as far as we are concerned they are not ready. They need to wheel and come again, and then we will take them seriously,” the prime minister said on state television.

  5. ‘Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of intelligent effort.’ – John Ruskin…Further Mr. Prime Minister …. another John Ruskin quote …. “The first test of a truly great man is his humility. By humility I don’t mean doubt of his powers or hesitation in speaking his opinion, but merely an understanding of the relationship of what he can say and what he can do.” I don’t need to expound anymore…

  6. Note the style of a wanna be mustache. It appears he’s liking himself the a certain fuhrer of the past.

    Antigua, DO NOT let Gaston become a dictator.

  7. At least nobody ever call Lovell a “Political Antichrist”! Your foolish and DUNCE behaviour and pronouncements as you run about the world achieving nothing for this country are not unnoticed. All intelligent and right thinking Antiguans and Barbudans are ashamed of your leadership and embarrassed at your lack of culture and refinement. You are unworthy of high office. You are carnal and empty headed and unlearned. Now you have exposed yourself for who you are not even money can buy the reelection of your ABLP to govern this nation again.
