Would Faber Ever Serve Under Shyne?

Patrick Faber

During his press conference which was held at his constituency office on Antelope Street Extension, Faber criticized the composition of the Nominations Committee, the trio that vetted and subsequently rejected his application to run in Collet. He also emphasized that as a proud member of the United Democratic Party, he isn’t going anywhere and will not be kicked out of the constituency. He also touched on the failed petitions and the meddling that allegedly took place once the signatures had been turned over to the party secretariat last Friday.


Patrick Faber, Collet Area Representative

“You know, I feel strongly enough and those are my personal feelings, but I think the people of this country feel strongly enough that God will have to help us all if that becomes the case.  This man is not correct.  I think that you know that from everything that he posts.  He uses your TV station to put these paid ads on, I don’t know why he does that because every single ad mounts up seven, eight hundred negative comments.  If you find five yoh find lot.  But I am saying, you know, I don’t want you to get me wrong, I am respectful of the authority in the party, you know, and in fact, when Shyne became the leader, there was no immediate protest from me, unlike him, when they failed to recall me.  I never, nobody can say Faber jumped up on TV and knocked down Shyne and criticized.  Nobody can say that.  When I started criticizing was when I realized that he did not mean any good for this party, when he started to butcher the central executive, taking off people like Ruben Campos, until I realize di man mi di dead.  Taking off people like Carlos Perdomo, like Philipa Griffith-Bailey, like Roosevelt Blades, like Russell Nunez, Denton Belisle.  Taking off these people then butchering the regional leader situation, taking off Tracy Panton to put Melvin Hewlett who… You see, those were the things that put me in a position to say I have to take a stand.  And you might say, Faber dah noh your place then, you should have rallied around the leader.  Well, we tried to do these things internally.  You’ve heard my colleagues, especially honorable Tracy [Panton] say this, over and over we’ve tried.  We tried to say to them, noh do that, noh do that.  That noh mek sense yoh di do that, that against the constitution, noh do that.  How yoh wahn force John Saldivar pan di people eena di western region when you did not even take his name to the National Party Council to see if he could be a candidate after he has lost three elections.”
