HOUSE OF LABOUR GOODNIGHT!
PEOPLE OF PARHAM AND ST. PETER’S GOODNIGHT!!!
LOOK AT THE SEA OF RED! LOOK AT THE SEA OF RED!
Tonight while my fellow comrades will come and discuss the plans the labour party has of empowerment for you, I stand before you to ONLY say two words! Two words friends and family of Labour!
Two words that speak to the 15 years I have represented you in parliament and the year’s prior I represented you in the senate.
TWO WORDS friends and family of Parham, TWO WORDS that speak to the years I have committed to YOU the people of Antigua and Barbuda and will continue to commit.
Those two words friends and family of Antigua and Barbuda, two words that simply say THANK YOU
THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
Comrades and friends, my heart is warmed by the sea of red I see tonight and I want to say thank you!
People of Antigua and Barbuda I want to thank you and most importantly I want you to be reassured that Team Labour’s Commitment is to you!
My commitment has been shown since I first represented you in the senate in 1997. I renew my commitment to you.
Politics has always been in my blood, my grandfather Asot Michael was committed to philanthropy and my late father Patrick Michael was an essential pillar who supported the Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party during its darkest hours in the early 1970s. He sacrificed his business to ensure the survival of the labour party.
Comrades and friends, my family history shows the Michael commitment to you, and I can assure you that I too share that same commitment to Team Labour and to you!
We will be your pillar and we are committed to ensure you have a strong foundation to grow, develop and thrive in Antigua and Barbuda, but only through your continued support!
And IN ADVANCE, I say THANK YOU!
Comrades and Friends, I could stand before you tonight and talk about the political rhetoric the other side wants to brainwash you with, but you know!
You the people of Antigua and Barbuda know the pain you have endured over the past 10 years!
You know you must be rescued! Team Labour come Thursday Will Rescue you.
AND I THANK YOU! I THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING THE ABLP COME THURSDAY JUNE 12!
House of Labour my heart breaks when I travel along Antigua’s roads, and go into the villages of this nation and see you the people hurting.
You are hurting!
You cannot find work!
You cannot afford electricity!
You cannot afford water!
Comrades, I know what it is like to have nothing which is why I am steadfast and committed to ensure you never go without what you need!
As you know Comrades, I come from a poor, simple peasant Lebanese peasant village located high in the mountains, where hard work, love of God, family and fellow man dictate one’s daily life and hope for the future of one’s children. My great grand parents were poor peasants who emigrated to the West hundred years ago, worked hard and educated their children so that future generations would not have to work as physically hard as their parents and grand parents did.
People of Parham! House of Labour! Just as my family worked hard for my generation, Team Labour will work relentlessly for you.
Today, we showed by paying the workers of Barbuda that we are committed to you.
Team Labour is not interested in another 10 years of broken promises and failed policies.
We are about change and today we proved that!
The UPP have starved you, they have taken work away from you!
They have made it impossible for you to afford electricity and water! The necessities to live!
How can you reelect a government that has neglected its people???
You the very people who elected them to lead you!
They have led you astray!
Friends and Family, I stand before you, Thankful, thanking you the people of this nation for voting for Gaston Browme and Team Labour come June 12th!
Comrades and Friends! Thank you for going and standing in the lines no matter what the antics and undemocratic strategies they may try and pull out to deter you from voting!
FRIENDS WE MUST HAVE OUR EYES OPEN! They will try it all! They do not want to be held accountable! But we will hold accountable for the past 10 year!
Friends, to do that, you MUST VOTE! AND TO VOTE, YOU MUST COLLECT YOUR CARDS!
I cannot stress enough the importance it is that you collect your voter ID cards!
Collect you weapon for liberation!
Collect your ticket to propriety!
Your ticket to development in Antigua and Barbuda.
Your ticket to a rescued and rebuilt Antigua and Barbuda.
Comrades and Friends, again I stand before you THANK YOU! You, my fellow comrades up and down the agenda tonight will discuss the great plans enclosed in our manifesto, the rescue plan for you the people of Antigua and Barbuda and this country, but I stand just to THANK YOU!
Thanking you for the support you have given us over the past and THANK YOU FOR ELECTING LABOUR!
We must give them a CLEAN SWEEP!
No longer can we tolerate another moment under Baldwin Spencer and his incompetent administration!
I will not waste a moment of this great energy here tonight talking about the past 10 years of their incompetence! THEIR SUNSHINE is DONE!
They will not get away with the neglect to you the people of this great nation of Antigua and Barbuda!
NOW IT IS TIME FOR REAL RED REBUILDING!
Comrades! Thursday! Thursday! June 12th!
Team Labour will lead you!
Antigua and Barbuda, the ABLP, the party truly committed to you the people must be the choice for your rescue!
We will Lead you! We will rescue! We will Rebuild Antigua and Barbuda!
House of Labour, I feel your pain and Team Labour is here! We are here to snatch you from the incompetent and neglectful hands of the UPP. Thursday Comrades and Friends!
Thursday is the day we will freed from incompetence go and get your cards, so we can together rebuild this great nation!
Choosing the heart and the flame!
Comrades, with your help, we will win this election.
