The Azure Project - Another UPP Deception

Peter DeSavaryProminently placed in the Observer Newspaper dated Wednesday 5th February, 2014, is the headline “AZURE BAY DEVELOPER CONFIRMS START UP WITHIN THE YEAR”.

The article, quoting Bruce Baxter saying that this will be a “High End project to be built on 550 acres” and quoting him further saying “a large number of people would be employed”.  He also stated that the developer would be Peter De Savary, a well-known and respected investor of the St. James’ Club fame.

On Thursday 6th February, 2014 I made a phone call to Mr. De Savary at his Gloucestershire home, hoping to congratulate him on the project. To my surprise Mr. DeSavary said to me that he knew nothing of such a project. That at this moment he was paying attention to some health issues. He assured me that he has the best medical team in London looking after him. He further said that the first time he knew of this project was when someone called him and read the newspaper article to him. He denied to the caller of his involvement.



Later that day he told me that Bruce Baxter sent him an email apologizing to him and distancing himself from the article. I then called Bruce Baxter and told him of my conversation with Mr. DeSavary and he confirmed that he did send the email but also went on to deny any involvement with the article.

I asked him if he was going to do a retraction of the story, as he was the person quoted to have provided the information. He stated we should “just leave it at that”.  

‘Leaving it at that’, as Baxter suggested is a compounding of Baxter’s duplicitous behavior prior to the 2009 general elections. Baxter knew that Graham Ferguson Lacey, a business friend and sometimes partner of DeSavary was in a Court battle with Abe Zion, from whom Lacey had purchased interest in the property; and yet Baxter arranged with the United Progressive Party to have ground breaking down at Seaforths where the Azure project is proposed.

I owe it to the public to bring this deception to light by outline the facts.

@ Observer - The Library Project & Double Dipping!

#10 John French !! » 2014-02-08 21:46

Notes From A Native Son Of The Rock. Observer hear the words of the Nyahbingi Men as they engaged in Discourse at the Amofah Market at the Bridge. Because you mean well, will share with you knowing that the documents will not disappear like the $10K from Gov House or The IHI file from The High Court since the AG, The Speaker & The BOE have ensured that they are in a safe place.
Quote:
"There are things that have to be done & you do them & you never talk about them. You don't try to justify them. They can't be justified. You just do them. Then you forget it." "Behind every successful fortune there is a crime." "Like many business men of genius he learned that free competition was wasteful, monoply efficient.' Mario Puzo, The Godfather.
Hear the words of the Nyahman:CLARITY! Who was the Project Manager for the Library Project & double dipped up to 2011. You may wish to discuss with The AG, The Speaker or Dr. Hanley - believe he is an engineer - before he was unceremoniously removed from Public Works. The "English man" is the "Quantity Surveyor" or "Cost Consultant". Some say appointed by the Good Dr. He is slated to be on the Rock in February & before the Ides of March.
Be aware that A&B can boast no trained & licensed Quantity Surveyor/Cost Consultant.
Notwithstanding all of the heartaches at the Library, Gorge Pigott provided freely his consultancy on this project. Todate no one has acknowledged his dedicated service.
Go Well! Much Respect!

So who's the cross dresser who fled this island clad in women's clothing and helped to pauperize Barbuda by not sharing the profits from their sand mining activity. Missing all the proceeds of corruption eh? Can't wait for the second coming of Labour to begin to reap again?

Truth

Gaston please be more agressive. #2

#6 Observer... » 2014-02-07 10:31

They really believe to be better than our young professionals, who by the way studied at the same universities in USA, Canada or Europe. It must be our self-esteem. One thing you cannot fault Stanford apart from a few expats most of his ream was local labour. Young Antiguan professionals. The UPP does not like to see young Antiguan professionals climb up the ladder. It’s the crab in the barrel mentality. You should not be making more money than them. And the PM voiced that once in a meeting. We were to consider a proposal of an Antiguan Engineer. And the amount the man quoted was more than twice his salary. You know they turned it down just to hire a English man. Who came and didn’t do a better job. Another such example
Is the engineer that ran the Library Project. Was also an Englishman. When you had people like Dr. Hanley here that were also on the job. Much more qualified, getting less. But I have to blame our own people. Because we allow these things to happen and to continue. This will never happen in Barbados or Jamaica or Trinidad.

You know the amount of lies that are out there for the ABLP to build case after case on is staggering. Yet Gaston never takes a shot at them. All he needs to do is put the budget speeches and the promises made from the last five years and you will see the story. You don’t need to go back to 2004 when they promise a ship full of investors. And then this year they come with the same false promises of projects in the pipeline. And some of the people are very gullible to believe them and fall into the trap. They have their agenda. IMF has given their instruction. Cut the public sector. That is why you have them here now for years working on PSST. And believe me they don’t plan to leave. They are hell bend to take Antiguan down on their knees. What I cannot understand is that so many young professionals are with them on this. They supposed to be so learned, yet they are so stupid in my opinion to let the IMF tell them how to run their country. And all you see is white consultants coming here and making lots of money while they give some of these so call young professionals’ contracts to assist them. Black People really folly. And believe me I have nothing against white people. It’s just a reality.

Hmmmm, must be a mistake since the other date (prior) was 5th February, 2014 (release in the Daily Observer), stands to reason he must mean the following day. The UPP is used to doing this. In the 2014 budget speech, MP Lovell used to Sandals project to justify the projected revenue for 2014. Stewart a few days later made clear that his project will not start in 2014 (Stewart: No Beaches Resort construction in Antigua this year
January 31, 2014 Rory Butler, Daily Observer)

Outright lies

#2 GARRAT » 2014-02-07 08:04

This Bruce Baxter who is a friend of Harold Lovell and Errol Cort is an American hanging around here for the past 10 years looking for deals. He is not an investor, he has no visible means of income and waiting probably to sell our passports under CIP. If he does not come out and contradict Hugh Marshall who claimed to have found him and his lying ways out, them Marshall must be believed. UPP is loosing and using these lying attics to get electoral favour. UPP got caught lying again
