Books about Anguilla


Saturday, 2 January 2010


For good reason, many of us have become cynical about what politics can achieve in this country. And as many Anguillians have turned away from politics, we know all too well what's filled the void.

It's the influence-peddlers – the Don Mitchells, Haydn Hugheses, Harry Wiggins, the Hubert Hugheses and the Yanchie Richardsons; the molesters, the racists, miscarriages of justice, the rapists, the pushers, the dealers, the scumbags, the vermin… the puss of corruption. The ones who've turned government into a game only they can afford to play.

They will write the checks of confusion and corruption and we all will get stuck with the bills for pandemic destruction. That risk could end up leaving our children a world that's a little poorer and a little meaner than we found it.

But today, we're here to tell them – hell no… not this time; the stakes are too high and the bid for tranquility wrapped in blue is priceless - go back to your down-underworld, as good governance is here to stay.

We have proven to them that ordinary people coming together are doing extraordinary things. Hope for us is not just a fleeting feeling, and we will remain permanent bumps in their selfish quest to destruct this blessed nation.

The Anguilla United Front (AUF) is your government because of years of confusion of interest and the convergence of confusional cynical approach to government from the Opposition; you have decided to put prosperity and stability ahead. Sadly – the Opposition’s position remains status-quo. That can't-do, won't- do, won't-even-try style of politics is over.

The AUF has turned the page - the kind of politics based on the idea that we are all connected as one people, that we all have a stake in one another. You can count on politics once again - now's the time for you to make it happen again.

You and I, on Election Day February day 2010, will make that happen – I trust you 100%.

Thank you very much for your generosity and support.
