LETTER: To Harold Lovell

The content originally appeared on: Antigua News Room

Dear Mr. Lovell,

Presently, it is very evident that you are busy preparing yourself and your team for the upcoming general elections….

Your eloquence, your forthrightness & your ambition to become Antigua’s next Prime minister is certainly admired. However, your aspirations seems to be a very big challenge.

As a leader of an army who is now looking forward to go into a political war, it would be expected of you to have the best & most efficient & competent soldiers onboard your political ship with you.

Incidently, as I listened to the role call, that you made for the upcoming election, I am bewildered that the following persons who were considered to be stalwarts  and who were once very active members of the UPP crew, are not seen or heard and hence, I am beginning to wonder if all have jumped ship  indicating their absence………

Elston Adams…………………….        absent
Gregory Athill …………………….       absent
Lamming Newton ……………….       absent
Malayka parker   ………………….     absent
Ambassador Goodwin…………..      absent
Colin Browne  ………………………     absent
Colin Derek     ………………………     absent
Anthony stuart ……………………..     absent
Joanne Massiah …………………..     absent
Dean jonas  ………………………….     absent
Winston Williams ………………….     absent
Wimoth Daniel  ……………………..     absent
Mervyn Richard’s …………………..    absent
Phil more Benjamin ……………….     absent
Errol Cort  ……………………………….   absent
John Maginley ………………………..   absent
Hilson Baptiste   …………………….    absent
Chanlah Codrington ……………….    absent
Clephane Robert’s   ………………..    absent
Dr. Edward Mansoor ………………    absent
Donna Chaia ………………………….   absent

Ofcourse, I would be even more surprised if I am told that more persons need to be added to the list .

These persons in my view were soldiers who had the UPP team at heart and they all possessed a wealth of experience, knowledge & qualifications in the various disciplines they were trained in.

Unlike your opponent, ABLP, who has been very pragmatic & displayed strong mantle and political stablity, the team that you are now  leading into this election war appears to be weak without those soldiers mentioned above. seems to be very fragile, very unstable, very inconsistent and so displays no intimidation towards their opponents ……

Many onlookers are of the view that your UPP ship will certainly get shipwrecked during the course of this election battle. Many also feel that, for the survival of your political organization,  some restructuring may need to be done within your hierarchy.

Of course I am still on the political fence, twiddling my fingers and watching the political activities heating up. Mr. Lovell, If your strategy does not change to convince me otherwise, then my vote will definitely be going to your opponents.
