  1. Well well well, St. Peters people will be very happy this Christmas

    I wonder what the UPP candidate and the DNA will be giving the constituents. Guess they are broke

    • @ Sidelines: I am a Voter where I am living. Not one damn Politician has ever given me anything. I do not indulged with Politicians and accept gifts. Isn’t this what they referred to as treating as in that case in Dominica. Giving gifts as a disguise for buying of your Votes.

    • @From The Sideline…Mr. Arrogant Condescending!

      Give a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he’ll eat and feed his family for a lifetime.

      Campaign reform laws are needed, such that bribery by politicians is illegal.
      This is unethical, reeks of destitution and proves that, the people do live in a #hand to mouth society.

    • @ FTS

      I have always said ”that the only way the ABLP can win an election is through ”HANDOUTS’, and you guys never cease to amaze me’

      DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS
      people need to take the ‘gifts’ and still GET RID A DEM

    • Why should they give them anything? The labour government has developed a beg e beg e cultural especially among poor people. Just throw them a bone for their votes.

  2. HAMS AND TURKEYS,LOOK WHAT WE COME TOO. People, your Votes are worth much more than both Hams and Turkeys. Think about it.

    • Clown, ham and turkey are just staple in Antigua and Barbuda for ABLP whether there is an election or not just stop trying your bad-talking Antigua and Barbuda upp supporter.

  3. Me know Asot most likely Paid for his. But as for Rawdon, are these contributions from people who had their tax waivers? Are Antiguans paying for the presents indirectly?

  4. ALL dd Spending SPREE
    The Ham & Turkey
    IS THE Norm for Parham.
    Next Level ASOT..
    My Condolence COMRADE.
    UNforgettable Michael’s Rally on

  5. The prison, Clare View, Fiennes ( poor house ) boys home, girls home and many poor people are hungry. It’s a shame what is taking place in this country. We need a better political system. When we finish we go and beg aid. We could not afford to send away Andre Simon after the accident for example and many others are begging behind the government for life saving assistance but we can use tax payers dollars to complete with Assot.
    This is just ridiculous!

  6. I had a conversation with a UPP supporter regarding the ham and turkey gesture. Of course he is of the opinion people are selling these cheap in accepting. I then asked him if UPP was in power wouldn’t they have carried on the gesture. He became silent as a nail in a coffin.

    My people the issue is this and it continues to show in this instant. Whatever ALP does UPPNEARGA criticise but leave it to them their actions are no different. It’s like my husband. He wants to have the most keepers but the minutes I tell him I going t to give away the “nook” he becomes incensed.

    • @ Labor pain hot NF, but when UcantPP. Lawddd

      TEARGAS TEARGAS TEARGAS, JUST A REMINDER: TEARGAS, TEARGAS, TEARGAS, MY EYES, MY BELLY, THE HURT AND PAIN

      THEY SHOULD NOT GET ONE VOTE.
      GET RID A DEM: TEARGAS WILL NEVER BE REMOVED FROM OUR SYSTEM

  7. Pringle you a sleep you need to step up your game in Swetes and be reminded to not just focus on certain people only like certain guys that sit on the baker shop corner……yes the ones that love chat people business, talking down and spreading rumors because they don’t want to see other villagers elevate in life especially the rasta that a campaign for UPP he love spread propaganda and antiman news about people in the village then smile in them face. 😑

  8. I have noticed in the past that many “toys” given to “poor” children at Christmas are cheap items that “mash-up” in a day or two leaving the children jealous of neighbours who got more expensive stronger toys. Also, the usual dollys and toy cars do not promote creativity or life skills that encourage the children to help themselves. I have noticed that all children both “rich” and “poor” like longer lasting, creative toys such as blocks; crayons, markers and drawing pads; crafting/sewing/jewelery-making kits; miniature gardening sets; soft balls and other sports toys. Those sorts of toys might actually improve lives in the long-term so future handouts would not be needed.

  9. FTS its strange reading some of these comments re handouts, cause I know I have seen UPP voters (even executive / founding members) eating ABLP turkey and Ham. Some even call me and remind me to drop theirs off. Admitedly they tend to be the ones who though they make clear who they support, will put country first and support what’s right for not only country but the area they live (support clean up campaigns, advocate for patrols, point out those in need, remind you about community needs even though they know you don’t support the same party they do). Essentially the ham and turkey is not just about party support but also labor’s way of thanking persons for being good citizens.

    • @ Tenman: Are you Gaston Browne in disguise? For what you have said sounds like a diabolical lie only Gaston Browne would tell.

    • @Tenman…The Art of War is shadowed by, the Art of Deception.

      Is it a #fact, that Gun & Ammo have being added to the #Give_a_Way packages, to take the Nation, to The #Next_Level of crime and criminality?

      To be aware, is to beware of the packages additional #wares!

      • @Smood aka prodigal- You must mean the USA, hence why you people have so many school shootings and such. The released records on what went down during Carter and Raegan time, speaks volumes regarding the US willingness to trade weapons and drugs. Look just recently Biden released an arms dealer

        • @Tenman aka the #Chameleon…
          as you mention Reagan(spell check works), isn’t it a fact, that it was during this time period when ARMS were being shipped to Africa through Antigua to assist European Mercenaries in destabilising Africa?
          Did someone say, Vere “gun runner” Bird?

          Again, you will pull red-herring(stinker than any Racan ever traveled with) over your #Handkers Trail to protect their crimes. The issue is the RISING VIOLENCE with criminals having easy access to illegal weapons. Where are these weapons coming from?
          Is Africa returning the “Gun Running” favor by utilising the.new Antigua Airways?

          Trust this #prodigal, the illegal weapons(guns/ammo) are now in the hands of the teenagers in Antigua. Deal with Antigua, Barbuda and REDONDA issues.

  10. Me was never offered no free turkey or ham. I went to epicurean to buy a turkey for $100 and my ham. The turkey was like cardboard and none of my guess ate any of it. The turkey truck doesn’t stop at my house but stop at the Guyanese neighbours who are always in their red. A lot of Antiguans couldn’t care less about free turkey.
