Watts responds to Jonas’ criticism during Thursday’s debate, saying he can hold his own in both politics and his profession

18

Algernon “Serpent” Watts, the United Progressive Party (UPP) Candidate for St. George, is defending himself against attacks and refuting lies reportedly uttered by MP Dean Jonas, the Antigua Labour Party (ALP) incumbent.

During an event staged by the National Youth Parliament last Thursday night, August 18, Jonas criticized Watts’ qualifications, sneering that he has put himself forward for public office when he does not have a tertiary degree.

However, Watts says that Jonas has no advantage on him, since he can stand against him in his profession, while the government minister cannot do the same against him in his field.

Meanwhile, Watts is commending the Youth Parliament for organizing the event, but says he did not realize he was to take part in a debate until he got to the venue.

Despite this, the UPP Candidate says he did not shy away from taking part in the debate – given that he had been the first person to call for such an event a few election cycles ago.

He adds, however, that Jonas is alleged to have been the force behind Thursday night’s event.

Kelton Dalso, the Democratic National Alliance Candidate (DNA), who was the third debater, also has accused Jonas of making untruthful remarks.

Jonas credited the ALP Administration with helping Dalso – via a scholarship – to acquire a law degree, a claim the DNA candidate strongly denies, saying funding for his studies came through his family and personal means.

Dalso also decried Jonas’ attack on Watts.

  3. @ sherfield : It is strange that you did not mention that Dean was fired by Gaston Browne for non-performance.

    It is strange that you did not mention the stinking gutters in Potters and Dean is the representative!

  4. I have said before, ABLP is an elitist party.
    If you don’t have a degree they look down on you
    If you don’t have money, they mock you

    ABLP BREAK DOWN THE ENTERPRISES OF YOUNG ENTREPREUNEURS WHILE THE BIG SHOTS CAN DO WHAT THEY LIKE

  5. We in St.George will definitely squeeze the life out the Serpent. Serpent DO NOT have a chance in St. George. I live in Potters Village and All my Family in PIGGOTS and BARNES HILL are campaigning with Dean Jonas. Serpent just have a BIG MOUTH on radio but in Person He cannot construct an sentence. Gladys Potter and Cleon Athill are next to fall out from UPP. UPP would not have a FULL slate of Candidates for election 2023.

  6. “He explained that, upon becoming the Candidate for St. George, he was told that he should ready himself for general elections, which the Party believed would have been called by the end of last year.”

    Harold loveLIE turned you into a world-class braying donkey overnight lil boy. You and your IMF Party still waiting on elections that are constitutionally due March 2023. You have burned out. Holding a little goat-water party and CHARGING people to enter. That is some strange low-level BS. UPP gwine tin you out, tin you out ….

  7. Serpent never graduated from secondary school. He is a dropout. How many CXC subjects does Serpent 🐍 have. Let’s begin there. Dean may just have opened the Serpent 🐍 up for real scrutiny of his overall academic performance.
    Tell us how what subjects Serpent 🐍 have at the cxc or secondary level!!!

  8. Serpant is pathetic. He go on radio and degrade ppl. It show the kind of person he is… a low life. I hope he die soon. What a nasty piece of shit the world is better off without

    • @#gangsta4life

      there is a lot of hatred in your heart towards this guy, be careful of angina-

      you are wishing death on someone? that’s deep- do you know about karma……you may just go before him. You minions are awful.

  9. #Studiation beats Education!

    There’s no doubt, that education in its intended form is vital, essential and paramount in the building and maintenance of societies.

    However, not only has ‘education’ being the used as a tool to destroy HUEmans(wars are designed and controlled by some of those WHO’RE well educated), education is also used to discriminate, to miseducate etc.

    There are formal and informal education. They both build #WISDOM which is key to solving any problem, and speaking of solving problems, there are two(2) accepted ways through education(formal & informal), that solve any problem…
    (I)…the Scientific Method(akin to formal education).
    (II)…the TRIAL & ERROR Method(akin to informal education).

    The funny thing about getting a ‘formal’ education program is that, a large percentage of pupils, students, teachers cheat, lie, steal to get this formal education and carry these habits and traits along with them through the rest of their life.

    Are there any LAWYERS, I mean LIARS in the Peanut Gallery?
