Books about Anguilla


Friday, 29 October 2010


Winston Churchill once said that, "Success is going from failure to failure without a loss of enthusiasm." This seems to be the exact approach that the Anguilla United Movement (AUM) adapted throughout its political history.

For the AUM, success is defined as the ability to maintain a flawed policy indefinitely; where the will of the people is swept aside and corruption and incompetence paralyze their will-power and ability to think; where standards are diminished, and the fundamental fairness of our society diminishes to benefit a visionless bunch of no-brainers and their influence-peddlers, with years of confusion-of-interest and their convergence of confusional cynical approach to government.

On this doomsday trajectory, maintaining good governance and moral status in the region is personal to all Anguillians. We must take a stand behind a common purpose on behalf of our security and common values, where Anguilla must mean more to us than just politics.

This must be an Anguilla based on freedom, which faced down fascism; an Anguilla which defended democracy through its revolution, and shined a light of hope bright enough to be seen in the darkest corners of the world; An Anguilla leading with principle and pragmatism, where hope triumph over fear.

Mr. Patrick R. Mardenborough, an Ex-Customs Officer turned successful young entrepreneur, said it best a few days ago: “If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then quit. There's no use being a damn fool about it. It’s that simple.”

There are many Barkleys crying out on Anguilla and throughout its diaspora…

Why isn’t our Government listening?
