UPP Presents Its Record of Achievements While in Office 2004 – 2014

62

As the United Progressive Party (UPP) seeks another term in office, the Party will release its Major Achievements. This comprehensive 80-page report highlights the administration’s philosophy and extensive record of accomplishments during the period 2004 – 2014.

Despite a huge national debt, an under-performing economy, dislocation created by the global economic crisis, the demise of the Stanford Empire and the collapse of BAICO/CLICO, the UPP implemented sound plans and budgetary policies that set Antigua and Barbuda on the road to recovery and then positioned it for economic take-off, according to Forbes magazine.

“The true impact of our stewardship is reflected in the thousands of lives that have been improved and the legacy of our social and economic programs that remain in place. The UPP is proud of our solid track record of delivering hope to the people of Antigua and Barbuda during our 10-year tenure in office,” said Harold Lovell, UPP Political Leader.

The Major Achievements book will be launched during a virtual Press Conference on Wednesday August 10th at 10am. The event will be hosted by former Minister Hon. Jacqui Quinn and will feature former Prime Minister Hon. Baldwin Spencer, Harold Lovell, UPP Political Leader and Hon. Jamale Pringle, Leader of the Opposition.

The publication will be released in two formats: a free downloadable  digbook on the Party’s website (www.voteupp.com) and as a limited edition coffee table book.

Reviews of UPP Major Achievements

“Very comprehensive book with 80 pages of well articulated achievements. The facts are there with no hidden agenda.”  Ralph G

“A well chronicled account of the UPP’s years of service to the people. Thank you for undertaking this enormous feat which no other administration in Antigua and Barbuda has ever accomplished in a ten year period.”  Carol B

An impressive and comprehensive record of achievement which demonstrates UPP’s proven competence, vision, and commitment to the people of Antigua and Barbuda. UPP’s past performance inspires confidence for a future UPP administration led by Harold Lovell.” James Nanton

  1. A stellar performance by the UnitedProgressiveParty. A work of excellence. Definitely none better since the independence of our nation. This is just an example of what a people and country centered government looks like. Keep bring the facts, keep showing out because it’s time the UPP show Antigua and Barbuda and the world what they have done as a prelude for what is to come. Excellent work 👏

  2. Elizabeth-T you are the Fiction
    When your day of reckoning comes, I hope you will know it is real, and not fiction.

    • Being shot by a UPP candidate is real, not fiction. We wish it was fiction, a bad dream that we could wake up from.

      “Ms. Barthley was SHOT IN HER NECK on 16th December 2003 outside Bowen’s office at Nevis Street…”

      Next year will make 20 years since he …..

      • YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO COVER UP NIGEL CHRISTIAN’S MURDER

  3. Moving forward to 2022, If the UPP announce how they are going to tackle the rising crime rate (whereas, the ABLP have surprisingly and mysteriously gone awol and MIA), they will not only win the next general election, but they’ll win comfortably.

    And then watch how quickly Gaston “Litigious” Browne reacts in kind.

    • Dion Pelle

      Is the UPP the only party to face defeat twice in a row AND TO COME BACK?

      People learn and grow!! Isn’t that what Gaston did?

      Was Harold Lovell ever the PM? He was not even the Finance Minister over the 10 years.

      ANTIGUA NEEDS A CHANGE FROM THE AVERICE AND CORRUPTION, INCLUDING SELF-ENRICHMENT.
      Anything right now better than this wicked, evil TEARGASSING ABLP

      • You hear the #UPPNEARGA Lies “…He was not even the Finance Minister over the 10 years.”

        #HFWL is the worst minister of finance ever in the western hemisphere.

        • But ‘just saying’ was he the finance minister over the 10 years? You are such a bitch liar and USEFUL IDIOT.
          Make certain you apologise when you check your facts coz ABLP supporters don’t read, Lester Bird said

        • @ JUST SAYING: Well, well well . Harold Lovell was Minister of TOURISM during the first term of the UPP.

          Hermitage
          Non Such Bay
          Carlisle Bay
          Sugar Ridge were just some of his achievements
          Don’t forget the 40 small hotels owned by people who looked like me and you.

          He achieved that in five years. REPEAT FIVE years.

      • Presenting the UPP achievements on the eve of the 2023 general election is suppose to accomplish what? Weren’t the electorates aware of these achievements in 2014 and the 2018 elections?

        • WHAT ACHIEVEMENTS?????????

          THE SELF-ENRICHMENT SCHEME
          THE BREAKING DOWN OF BLACK PEOPLE BUSINESS PLACES
          THE GIVING AWAY OF OUR LAND

          THOSE ACHIEVEMENTS????

  4. 80 pages is quite a lot. I look forward to seeing this document. It sounds like it will be written the past tense so we can easily fact check. Unlike the utterances from Gaston Browne where he speaks about things coming that never materialize. Can anyone tell us about the status of Jolly Beach? 30 days ago Gaston said it would be completed in 60 days. So grand opening in 30 days?

    • YOU CANNOT COVER UP THE MURDER OF NIGEL CHRISTIAN ONCE THERE IS A IMPARTIAL JURY TRIAL:

      THE SAD THING ABOUT YOU ABLP PEOPLE YOU DO NOT READ. EXPLAIN ONCE AGAIN TO ME WHICH PROFITED MORE TO THE PEOPLE OF ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA….THE IMF WITH AN INTEREST RATE OF 1.5% PER ANNUM OR GASTON’S LOCAL COMMERCIAL BANK LOANS WITH INTEREST RATES CIRCA 7-11%, WHICH HAD THE ANTIGUAN PUBLIC IN MORE DEBT, YOU IMBECILES!!!

    • Well I think their biggest achievement was to take us to the IMF. No other Labour Party government was able to get that done. And the IMF is such a good thing to have. They teach you how to run a country correctly. They have all the technical support in-house.

      • The statistics division released the June 2022 CPI which showed price increases in all categories. Things are getting more expensive by the day and the useless idiots like Dion Pelle, Just Saying, et al. would have you believe that all is well in Antigua under these inflationary pressures despite the uncaring ABLP government not doing a single thing to help the people.

        • @economist… Stop looking for handouts. You operate in a theoretical world. I live and operate in the real world.

          • @ JUST SAYING!
            It is surprising to hear you say that you live in the real world. Last week you indicated that you were unaffected by the hardship and the suffering of your brothers and sisters.
            Well, high food prices and high gas prices are real. Late payments are real! No payments are real!
            Suffering and hardship are real. However, you are so theoretical and you live in denial.
            Or maybe you have a hard heart. Yeah, you support the ABLP. I should not expect any better!

          • @Just Saying it is clear from your position that you do not care about the most vulnerable within our society. That much is expected from ABLP supporters as ABLP has done absolutely nothing to help the poor and vulnerable.

        • Isn’t this a worldwide phenomenon? Or are you so hell bent on only focusing on Antigua when we have a world crisis? Hatred makes people blind indeed. But don’t worry, some of us can see clearly what is going on in the world and affects every country. Even the big USA.

          • @FROM THE SIDESLINE: Amnesia make people blind.
            During the WORLD ECONOMIC CRISIS Gaston denied that there was a crisis and he blamed the UPP. REMEMBER! So now you want a free pass!
            Your hatred for the UPP makes you so blind!

          • @From The Sideline your head is so far up Gastons ass that your memory is messed up. People like you are what is wrong with our country.

      • At least the interest rate was 1 per cent. Tell us how much Gaston get his loans for.
        You don’t know , do you.

        • I guess there are no strings attached to IMF cheap loans. That is why everyone goes to the IMF. It has cheap money.
          Cannot educate you guys at all.
          You know why they call it the lender of last resort.

          • FROM THE SIDELINE:
            What are the strings attached to Gaston’s expensive loans. You would not know because he is a coward and he does not disclose.

            Case in point: If Trevor Walker did not ask him about the failure of the 200 million bond, YOU SIDELINE would never have known.
            Why didn’t Gaston disclose that he had failed. WHY? WHY? WHY? He and Weston were boast boast bad that the bond was over-subscribed! REMEMBER.
            HA HA Over – subscribed by one. What a fool. The one person realize that he is dealing with a dictator and pull out.
            Gaston is such a fool AND SO ARE YOU!

    • I can see you are hurting over the contents of the book. Try your best to ignore it or it’s burning you tomuk.😂

  6. Well well well. At the last ABLP convention they mentioned that they will be putting out a list of accomplishments of the party over the last eight years and that made the UPP run and put out something before them? What a thing. They are running Helter Skelter already. They so want to be the first out the blocks. But when we will compare the two lists everyone will soon see the big difference. Cheese and Chalk.

    • LIAR LIAR LIAR…IT WAS THE UPP THAT FIRST SUGGESTED IT, SINCE THE DAYS OF ANNA SALOME….SUCH LIARS…ALWAYS WANT TO TAKE CREDIT WHEN THINGS GO WELL BUT NOT WHEN ITS BAD……READ THE DAM FACTS, TOO MUCH GROUND FAKINGS 😂😂😂😂

    • FROM THE SIDELINES : One month ago the ABLP had a convention. ONE MONTH. JUST ONE MONTH.

      You are telling me that the UPP was able to compile a book, edit a book, publish a book in one month!

      You are so desperate because you shame! shame! shame!

  7. You are a USELESS IDIOT Dion Pelle. How can anyone who loves this nation want us to continue down this tunnel that we are in? This government is totally incompetent and disastrous. We must have change. Arwe go do jus lakka Grenada. So tek dat!

    • They are so useless that every year, except for 2020, the year of Covid lock down, they grew the economy faster than any other country in the region. Just check the ECCB and the ECLAC reports. And the construction sector is booming so much that we have a shortage of skilled workers presently. But you guys are the only one’s suffering. I wonder why?

      • FROM THE SUDELINE: Who provides ECLAC and ECCB with the information. Gaston BROWNE.

        Ask yourself this question, if Antigua was so prosperous, how came we so broke now.

        This is despite the fact that Gaston had 2 billion from the CIP.

        When I was at university, we had to read a book called: ” How to lie with statistics”.
        I strongly recommend that you read it.

  8. I am one who can tell all of the detractors that you are impoverished under Labor. Have there been a raise to any public sector? Are goods and services cheaper? When last you get a duty free? When last you get a handout? Oh I forgot you scoundrels only stretch your hand out every election year. Zacari say ALL FOR THEM AND NONE FOR WE. Dieon Pellet which category you fall under.

    • WOW….FROM Dion Pelle to Dieon Pellet…..From Ms Antigua to Mr Antigua. Please make up your mind, are you a MS or a Mr or both. BRAMBLE call off you people

        • Same thing me a say. It makes you wonder what’s really inside the book. All this back and forth over a book. Well well!

  9. UPP sounds like when a man left ah woman and he trying to convince her to come back but all she can remember is the abuse. Keep dem #UPPNEARGA at bay.

    #HFWL is the wuss minister of finance the western hemisphere has ever seen. Imagine a place like Haiti had a better minister of finance than #HFWL. Now this is really telling and this man waaan be PM and MOF. Nefffer.

  10. Any man who has to remind a woman how good he has been to her ain’t deserve she front!!! Same applies to the UPP… Keep these #UPPNEARGA to the rear… Trust me they like that!!!

  11. Mr Lovell. You are the leader. Tell us. Why now? What do you hope to accomplish by publishing this booklet? Are you taking a page out of Trump’s book and looking back instead of going forward? That is not working for him. Why for God Sake are you doing this now?

    Let’s look at the situation. You are the only candidate on your slate that was there at the time. Are you expecting your candidates to go out there and defend these achievements that they know little about, plus at a time when they should be talking about their plans for their constituencies?

    What is wrong with you, Mr Lovell? Why are you wasting so much time looking backwards when you have so many workable plans for a new administration? Are you getting bad advice? Surely you should know better with all those years of experience. Rumor has It that you have two women as head of your strategy team. One is living in the US and the other don’t know sh-t about political strategy. Another two is Tabor, the young one, who lives in another stratosphere and the other one is the man with the nightclub.

    Mr Lovell, you are too close to winning to look back now. This booklet is a waste of valuable time right now. Focus on the future. Stop looking back at the past and start leading your team to focus all the nice new plans of the UPP. You are killing people with all this boring and unnecessary reminiscing.

    BTW, we see you all over the place with the tight pants man with the plenty beard in his face that you are hanging out with. Word on the street is that you plan to replace Marshall with him. You cannot be serious. If you do that you will get a political backlash that you might not recover from. You need to check the stuff you are getting these days. Probably has something hallucinating in it.

    • @ Right time, Mr. Lovell:
      If you feel that this is the wrong time for the book of achievements, then don’t read it. Other people will.

      Don’t stress yourself concerting UPP politics. You should concentrate on what is happening in St Peter with the current Labour MP

  12. Wow, look dey now!

    The electoral confidence of Gaston Browne, the ABLP and their generational supporters was sky high just 12-18 months ago.

    Now fast forward to today, and the confidence is ebbing away (I was going to say slowly, but the speed of the fall is truly phenomenal), because in their heart of hearts they all know the ABLP gig is up.

    I’m actually NOT enjoying their squirming and wriggling around at present …

    Gaston 🥸, call the election your generational supporters are suffering bad, bad … bad.

    STOP BEING CRUEL TO THEM BOSS MAN!!!

    🎶 Ring The Alarm … 🎶

  13. I cannot believe that in this modern world, we still have people who will eat the crap ABLP and Gaston manufacture. Read, research, educate yourself and stop sounding so dunce! The reach of this newspaper goes beyond the shores of Antigua and Barbuda! This small island Tom foolery mentality is getting us nowhere! To make a better future, you have to build on the past foundation. UPP and Harold Lovell built a solid foundation – one that will spring us into the future and put us in a better place!! All you ABLP supporters, you all not tired of being miserable.

  14. ABLP Antigua and Barbuda Liard Party is in power for about 8 years now and still blaming UPP. They say they have solutions fix the problem !
    The book is a reminder what they have done so they could see the truth when the Labour Party try to bamboozle citizens because they want to stay in power for ever. Every sentence the previous administration has done terrible.

    Things are so good right now so many strikes for money owed for years, so much corruption that cause person to loose their lives.

    Red is dead! Their time up!

    The worst labour Party ever!

  15. This is going to be some book. All this controversy over whether or not UPP should publish its record of Achievements? It’s not like a manifesto where you can make all these “pie in the sky” promises. It is based on things that you can fact check. So Let’s see what happens next week.

  16. You after all it would be a good thing to publish such a list. It will remind us why we voted you out in 2014 and again in 2018. And while in 2018 you got away with ONE seat, this time around you will leave empty handed. ZERO, NUT. NUTHIN. You’re going to get plenty of licks in your nennen.

  17. Take a good look at the babies being born here, they look real skinny and magar
    Seriously, antigua kids look malnourished and hungry..
    Minister of health, something is wrong!!
    Sad!!! Call the election!!
