UPP candidate goes viral for accidentally endorsing the ABLP


United Progressive Party candidate for St. Mary’s North has gone viral for the wrong reason.

He made a major gaffe by endorsing the ABLP at the UPP’s campaign launch last night. This is what he said:

ALSO READ his apology below:

I, Senator Johnathan Joseph, the United Progressive Party Candidate for St. Mary’s North, am correcting statements made at the conclusion of my platform speech at the Party’s Campaign Launch on Thursday, January 27.


Those statements were made purely through human error, as any examination of the sentiments that preceded them will attest.


Be assured that my support, advocacy and endorsement of the United Progressive Party have not changed, and I am proud to be one of its standard-bearers.


For Johnathan Joseph, the UPP is the Right Choice, and remains so, for St. Mary’s North and for Antigua and Barbuda.


I sincerely apologize for any confusion or hurt caused by my error.

  1. Accidentally!? LMAO!!!!!! More like one full endorsement!!!!🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 it OK Johnathan we know u want come back home🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 ya safer wid labor!!!!

  2. God nar sleep! The good Lord is beginning to expose them and show us one by one how irresponsible & dunce they are.

  3. Genesis 11:7-9: Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. 8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. 9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

      Perfect scripture. Much suitable…The UPP DO NOT know what They stand for.
      Serpent sounded like a bag of FART last evening. St. George will kick Serpent ass to the curd in the election.

      I did not see Knight ,Ian Magic Hughes and Sheffield Bowen.

      What happen to these Guys ? I believe They quit.

  4. I will never again vote for Gaston Browne. After he did what he did to me. I will never trust him again.

    I take back all my comments about the stripper pole.

    UPP all the way.

  5. It was NO ACCIDENT. He spoke from his heart❤
    Remember that the plan is for the UPP to actually lose the election with Lovell as leader. This is the final push to get rid of Lovell. Once Lovell is beaten, the pompous, selfish and elitist elements will leave too..

    Jonathan meant exactly what he said. Vote ALP!!!!

  6. What a pappy show!!!! What did he drink yesterday before the Launch? In one single statement he made to errors? Vote ALP! You did it eight years ago….both are correct….that is a FULL endorsement. What a field day tomorrow for the B & B show. Wonder if they are thinking to replaced him as the party’s candidate?

    Maria Brown said that ALP wrecked Antigua… Lindell Benjamin said Baldwin Spencer was the Best pm Antigua ever had… Robin said that a government that can’t supply water should be voted out…

    Gaston recently said Pringle is the man for ASESL

    • Jonathan Joseph is TEAM RICAHRD LEWIS! It was deliberate on his part. Everyone knows the party is split and confused with all kinda internal battles. There are two other leadership camps withing the UPP: (1) Jammarl Pringle and (2) Richard Lewis

      They actually do not want the UPP to win the election. Their goal is to GET RID OF HAROLD LOVELL by hook or by crook. There are upp supporters bad-mouthing Harold Lovell in his own constituency.

      you know you are in a terrible position when NOT EVEN YOUR OWN UPP PARTY WANTS YOU TO WIN!

  8. Is long time King Obstinate warming us of those behavior in his song Land of Democracy. Check the verse;

    Some boast of their country
    How they live in harmony
    Some say they practice democracy
    But in Antigua we don’t boast on paper
    We live and love democracy here
    We could campaign for the opposition
    Then vote against them in an election

  9. Is it a case that we have accepted Pringle and his green verbs, because the amount he leggo last night… me mumma.

  10. It’s all a sham. RED / BLUE there is not true opposition. They are BOTH Marxist LABOR parties.
    When are Antiguans going to wake up AND REALIZE THAT A SPELL HAS BEEN CAST OVER THEIR MINDS?

    When is the BUSINESS community going to field a truly CONSERVITIVE party and a group viable candidates to challenge LABORS stranglehold on politics?

  11. ANR seems to be CENSORING certain posts lately….
    So, let me try this. Go to rumble video’s and search for the ‘academy of ideas’ and watch some of their videos. Get an easy to understand EDUCATION about the world in which you live.
