P.U.P. Campaign Manager Comments on Old Guard

Godfrey Smith

There has been some criticism of the party for its refusal to let go of certain persons considered the old guard. But if you expected any mass jettisoning or serious shakeup, it didn’t happen – because, says the Campaign Manager, the P.U.P. is a party of inclusion.


Godfrey Smith, Campaign Manager, P.U.P.

“If you actually do a fact check of the People’s United Party you will find that there is a larger percentage of young persons in the People’s United Party, new faces, is greater than what exists in the United Democratic Party. The fact of the matter is that this is a party, if you do the fact check that has gone through its various conventions and has appointed a lot of new people. And they are vigorous, they are young and they are ready to work. I’m not sure what you mean by old heads, but this is a party of inclusion. There are many of those among us who have been with the party for longer than some of you all have been alive, and they have made a great contribution to the People’s United Party. This is a party of inclusion and we believe in involving everybody in the work of the party, and that is how the party plans to move ahead.”


Smith says the P.U.P. will be going on retreat sometime around the Easter break. The last time that happened, it was pre-2008 elections, just before the party was thrashed in general elections.

    STUBORN AS A MULE like what Mr. Musa once said. When will this party start to listen to his followers and change that old guard idea. If they plan to run again for general it’s already lost if they don’t change leadership and the way they try to run their party.

    You are so right. They are many of you who have been there too long and we continue to pay the price for your presence. You delusional fools have found a way to grab defeat from the jaws of victory. Why?? Because you all do not have the balls to get rid of that thieving weasel Musa. You all have ruined the party of George Price. Yes, there are a lot of “new people”. Let’s see: 1) Yasmin Shoman 2) Karim Musa 3) Henry Charles Usher 4) Michelle Chebat ….. We get the picture you dumb ass!!! The Palestinian United Party is alive and well.
    As for you, you are a smooth talker with nothing but defeats to show for it: lost Pickstock 2x with your proxy brother, lost Cayo North, and lost the municipal elections. If you can’t return integrity to the party by sweeping out the Musa family, then all of you will end up going. You have handed us nothing but defeats and we are fed up of all of you.
