UPP Stands in Solidarity with ABWU’s Position on Sir George Walter


On behalf of the United Progressive Party’s Leadership, Executive and Membership, I am pleased and proud to stand with the Antigua & Barbuda Workers Union in defense of Sir George Walter and condemn the disrespect meted out to him by Prime Minister Gaston Browne.

PM Browne’s besmirching of Sir George’s legacy is not simply an indication of his own small stature as a statesman.

It is a continuation of his shameful attempts to rewrite history in a way that gives credit only to those of his political persuasion.

However, the truth speaks loudly and clearly for itself in Sir George’s favour. Every year on December 9, as we honour the pantheon of our heroes, the UPP joins with Sir George’s Family to celebrate his towering achievements.

We do this respectfully and gratefully, recognizing that he and his Administration left a tangible and valuable legacy for all the people of Antigua and Barbuda and, in particular, the workers of this country. It is a debt we can only try to repay.

And so, as great nations do its fallen heroes, we will remember Sir George.

Harold Lovell, Political Leader

  1. Would be news if it was different. Was the same UPP who made him nat. hero. If he were alive today, there is no doubt there would be some within the UPP who would bad talk him

  2. George was okay in a way. He wasn’t all that as we all remember. He tried his best. Lovell is in another class altogether, far below George.

  3. King Lyadd Lovell Limpy Joe shut up!!! You and George STEEL FRAME Walter are failures cut from the same cloth.

    He nah deserve jack squat much less National Hero. Y’all “gave it” to him because of party affiliation.
