There are more questions than answers. People have a legitimate right to ask questions of their representatives and the candidates that keep lots of noises in attempts to woo would-be voters in Antigua and Barbuda. Caribbean Times understands that one burning question that has become part of the popular discourse at this time is: how far will Prime Minister Baldwin Spencer and the seemingly undisciplined and uncouth United Progressive Party (UPP go to win an election that, from many vantage points, appears to be already lost to the resurgent Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party (ABLP) under its intelligent and refreshing [...]

Gaston Browne on Spencer’s Failed Leadership

June 1, 2014 @ 4:15 PM
by ablpadmin
Assuming that leadership matters, it is striking that Prime Minister Baldwin Spencer’s overall performances are best described as dismal. This is the concerted view of his political opponents in the Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party (ABLP). Caribbean Times reproduces the charge made by the ABLP’s political leader Gaston Browne, speaking at a political meeting and rally at Thwaites Corner a couple of weeks ago. Gaston Browne: Baldwin Spencer has no defense for his failed economic policies and poor performance. He has had a whole decade to perform and he has failed miserably. There is no hope for this country under [...]

Less than two weeks before general elections, the Antigua and Barbuda government has continued its reckless borrowing of money. On Thursday, the government resorted to its practice of borrowing money by issuing bonds on the Eastern Caribbean Securities Exchange. This time, the government raised over $17 million dollars on the exchange. The offer was oversubscribed as the government’s intention was to raise $15 million. It is not immediately known those entities which participated in the purchase of the government bonds. But earlier this month, when the government raised over $20 million, the Medical Benefits Scheme (MBS) purchased over $18 million [...]

ABLP: Prime Minister and Deputy Still Cannot Speak to Track Record

by Caribtimes.com The UPP continues to character assassinate the leaders of the Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party in a desperate attempt to signal fear into the voters ahead of the June 12th Elections. It is unfortunate that they will stoop to the gutter politics rather than standing on a platform that speaks to their successful track record of 10 years being in government. It is unbelievable that after 10 years of governance, The UPP’s only confidence in the ability to drive this country forward is seen as projects that have just begun clearing the sites; Promises once again. First they [...]
