UPP government will discontinue practice of “check your minister”


Opposition Leader Jamale Pringle says the government will discontinue an ABLP practice whereby people seeking assistance are referred to ministers of government directly.

Pringle was addressing young people at the United Progressive Party Youth Forum last night.

The event was carried live on Facebook but the live feed was interrupted several times due to poor internet connection.

Here is Pringle’s full presentation on the subject matter:

  1. Every time I hear PRINGLE I feel sad for Him. He never learnt anything for the years in POLITICS. PRINGLE sounds as STUPID as ever.

  2. What else will the UPP discontinue?? Will they reverse the the decision of ensuring that a certain hotel pays all govt taxes in full? It was their party leader who allowed said hotel/ier to hoodwink him into holding on to $100m+ that belonged in the treasury.

    • It was Lester Bird that made the deal with the hotel. Get your story strait or don’t chat. Continue to listen to liar Gaston.

      • NO!! It was Lovell as Finance Minister and I won’t say the name of the hotel (since the govt called a truce on the feud after the hotelier was made to stop the bullshit that Lovell allowed).

        • Lovell continued what Lester started. Gaston has a big mouth and his minions believe or pretend to believe everything that comes out of his big mouth.
          In any case the Labour government has stolen government assets far in excess of the taxes waived.

          • Just remembered who introduce ABST and ot was not the late Sir Lester B. Bird nor Gaston Browne and it was the UPP fearless leader was the one giving away the ABST to the certain hotel so wheel and come again🤣

  3. Way dem find this wild, loose goat yah from?? Not even the goats from Redonda displayed such behaviour when they were transported via helicopter to the mainland.

  4. Leave the guy alone people. PRINGLE is THE MAN. He’s all they’ve got, and he’s the best they’ve got. Let the guy do his thing. The voters will decide.

  5. Seems like a death in the Cult family has given these minions strength on ANR. It was Erol Cort Minister of finance when the ABST was introduced. They took all the nuance taxes and put under one name and the hotel bed night tax was one. The Lester Bird administration which the gutter sniper top dawg was a minister had nothing to say when they gave Butch Stewart all the concessions. The deal was already signed when UPP came to power in 2004. The UPP stopped the project for nearly a year, even the home owners protested the project. The Gutter Snipe top dawg sat in Parliament for ten years knew what was going on at Sandals and said nothing. Wow! They really love A&B. Let us fast forward to 2021 the same gutter Snipe top dawg is now running behind Adam Stewart to build the Beaches Hotel at Halcyon. “oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.” The Failed Experiment will give away the country to say he did something in nine years, will Sandals take us to the cleaners? Question for the minions.
