Serpent explains why his farm is in its current state

35

Algernon “Serpent” Watts, the United Progressive Party Candidate for St. George, is responding to Minister of Agriculture Samantha Marshall about the condition of his farm.

During debate on the 2022 budget last week, Marshall presented photographs, which which she claims she took herself, of what she says is Watts’ farm.

Some of the photos showed overgrown shrubbery, while others showed garbage dumped at a certain location.

Responding during his Snake Pit programme on Saturday, February 12, Watts said that he has not tilled the land for about a year, since 2021.

He explained that, upon becoming the Candidate for St. George, he was told that he should ready himself for general elections, which the Party believed would have been called by the end of last year.

In order to make up ground in St. George, and recapture the 600 votes the Party lost in the 2018 general elections, Watts says he had to dedicate his time to the constituency and meet with its people.

He says that his farming pursuits have been put on pause as he waits to ramp up campaigning for the upcoming elections.

Additionally, Watts says that allowing farm lands to rest and rejuvenate is widely known and practiced among the farming community.

Meanwhile, Watts, who was well known for producing quality cantaloupe and butternut squash, says he had to go to the Antigua Public Utilities Authority on a daily basis to purchase water — which was not sustainable as a farmer.

As the Minister of Agriculture, Marshall should have done her job and inquired why he was no longer farming — instead of trying to belittle him in Parliament,  Watts adds. REAL NEWS

    • So is the Daily Observer!

      That’s why this story didn’t make it to the Big Issues much less appear in the newspaper of the self-proclaimed “ONLY INDEPENDENT MEDIA HOUSE”

      GEMMA HANDY girl your puppet strings are getting thicker and thicker. Hope you don’t choke dear. You done slim already. All the pull and tug on your puppet strings might snap you in two if you’re not careful.

    • SERPENT…This is PURE HOG WASH. You pretend to be a FARMER.
      You got caught. You should be charged for selling produce from your farm in that DEPLORABLE condition. Nothing from your farm is good for human consumption.
      What I saw on your farm are as follows.

      OLD TOILET BOWLS.
      OLD CLOTHING
      OLD FRIDGE
      OLD TANKS
      OLD TIRES.
      The Citizens of Antigua should bring a CLASS ACTION LAW SUITE against you. Serpent you are a DISGRACE to FARMERS

      • Maybe he wants to open a consignment store selling used items 🤔

  1. The question that I have is:

    How could this ‘serpent’ be given more lands in 2017 (according to what I heard the Prime Minister say to Washington Bramble) and the other lands he was in control of apparently were not fully utilized?

    What am I missing here?

    Serpent, gee back de people dem government land and utilize what you can ‘work’.

    I have heard you say ‘oh people should build up – going skyward’ suggesting that building upwards could ‘save space’.

    So if that is the case, why the hell you want so much god damn land and you can’t ‘work’ all?

    Oh, I forgot. You accept the name ‘serpent’.

  2. Did serpant really say the party thought the election was going to be last year or Lyadd Paul say so?

  3. If he said because he caught covid because the I Booster didnt work I would more believe him. All I see is a wutliss man having his place in ah wutliss state!!!!

    • NARSEE & WUTLISS cyarn dun!!!! His backyard, bathroom and kitchen must be overrun with FLIES, MAGGOTS AND ROTTEN DUTTY PAMPERS!!! Get out of here you NASTY WUTLISS 🤡 🐍

      Where is your wife to help you clean up?

      Thought I had seen it all with the way Pringle keep his event service place (messy, wutliss and disorganized). But this slithering 🤡 🐍 tek de cake.

      NASTY NASTY NASTY NASTY
      WUTLISS lakka CUTLISS

  4. This is feeblest attempt at an explanation I’ve ever heard. This loud mouth fellow snake (if you don’t believe he’s a snake, ask his former friends about his dalliances among their significant others) is always quick to berate and lambast others for their perceived shortcomings. Yet, he is asserting that as a man he CANNOT run a radio station, conduct an election campaign, and run a farm at the same time. However, he wants to be trusted to sit in Parliament (and possibly Cabinet) to deal with issues that are way more complex and demand a greater management of time and resources. This snake is truly of the impotent kind. He lacks sting and venom.

    • Talk truth. Is badmind he badmind the PM for being in office, renting his home and running a farm at the same time.

  5. Excuses, excuses, excuses pure foolishness boss!!! If his farm is like this under his watch, what yo think his constituency is going to look like if he wins his seat? All snakes like bush and plenty grass, can’t yall see dat.
    Dat explains everything for us. We don’t want no snake in parliament cause the bush might end up there too.
    “Farm pon pause” a wah dis ya tarl tarl me a hear. So you mean to say that if another distraction comes to your attention you are going to put your constituency on pause if you win your seat????
    Joker spade boi lol

  6. Serpent cut the crap! #Proper #Planning matters.
    This is a management is and it shows how PPP – Piss Poor Planning and PPM – Piss Poor Management have caught up with you, and now that you’ve being ‘found wanting,’ you’re spewing a ton of hot funky air, as an excuse.

    Depending on how long you’ve had this farm…
    A…at least two ponds should have being dug, well lined surrounded by neem and other fruit trees to stem the leakage and evaporation, and stocked with fish, prawns etc. These are things which require little maintenance after they’re established.

    B…for electricity SOLAR is trending to power pumps for irrigation and hydroponics, security cameras etc!

    C…Plant flowers! They’re still the favorite go to gift for ladies.

    Your farm should be employing individuals and even if the pay/salary may be low, supplement their pay with what is grown and produced from the farm.
    This tells many of us, all a r u rass, jus full a chat, behind 🎤 microphone!
    Idiat excuse…
