Source Real News Antigua: Opposition Leader Jamale Pringle says that an audio recording of him that is now making the social-media rounds is nothing but“political mechanics” and intended to distract the public from the economic and social problems the country is facing.

The recording was cut from an interview with Daren Matthew Ward of Twin Island Media that took place since March 27.

Near the end of the almost hour-long outing, the host asks MP Pringle what he might have learned from observation of Antigua and Barbuda’s four prime ministers that could be useful if he were to become the head of government one day.

The MP cites certain qualities about Sir V.C. Bird, Sir George H. Walter, and Dr. Baldwin Spencer, and ends with Prime Minister Gaston Brown.

He credits the latter with being forceful and decisive and says that Browne is not afraid “to take the bull by the horns and to tame it” – even as he acknowledges that the current prime minister can be dictatorial.

The audio is followed by a video clip in which Browne is heard lying to his studio colleagues and media audience, claiming that Pringle “chose” him from among the four prime ministers and implying a form of endorsement.

“Anybody who listens to the entire interview – or even to that specific question – would realize this is just political mechanics,” Pringle says.

“What the Government wants is for people to forget the 14 percent salary increase to the Labour Party ministers and the West Indies Oil Company property deal with the prime minister’s son,” Pringle continues.

“And with the Party’s convention coming up, they believe they can use this clip to paint me in a different colour. But my role models are within the UPP and nothing that Gaston Browne says can change that,” Pringle declares.
