PNP Tensions Spill Over on Facebook


The bitter and personal feuding among some high profile PNP activists on social media is worsening.

Threats of physical violence are now being hurled in the outright war being played out on the social media site, Facebook.

Veteran PNP activist, Karen Cross, today warned former East Rural St. Andrew MP, Damion Crawford and others, that they should be very afraid following their criticism of Angela Brown-Burke and defense of Lisa Hanna.

Cross delivered the threat in an expletive laden post today.

It’s open war as the showdown looms in the PNP leadership elections next month.

Lisa Hanna has been under attack from Karen Cross and some comrades loyal to incumbent PNP Vice President Angela Brown Burke in recent days.

Both Hanna and Brown-Burke are vying for two of the four Vice President positions in the PNP.

Earlier this week, Karen Cross penned a letter to comrades in which she launched a blistering personal attack on Hanna.

Cross is a long time PNP activist from the Molynes Division in West Central St. Andrew.

PNP insiders say she’s considered a loyalist and close friend of Mrs. Brown Burke.

On Facebook today – Damion Crawford responded to Cross saying it’s disappointing that Mrs. Brown Burke is not brave enough to write her own letters.

In a quick response, Karen Cross told Crawford and other comrades criticizing Brown Burke – “you want to take this on while hiding on Facebook ? anyone of you want to take me on, tell me where and when, I will show up – you all should be afraid, very afraid.”

Crawford had earlier commented that from the outside it seems to him as if the plan by some members of the PNP is to gang on up Lisa Hanna.

In what’s being interpreted as a thinly veiled jab at Brown Burke, Crawford said the attack on Hanna is unfortunate because – “the other lady is not worthy of consideration”

Mrs. Brown Burke’s ally, Karen Cross, responded today by telling Crawford- “I will see you at conference and we will settle it there, go F yourself, are you ready for this”

The bitter feud is deepening on social media.

The longtime PNP activist also took on another comrade who’d defended Hanna and encouraged delegates to vote against Mrs. Brown-Burke in September’s Vice Presidential race.

Cross sounded an ominous warning. She wrote the comrade saying – “cockroach you cannot defend anybody, try that at the PNP conference and we will take you down ….. you may want to think about this some more”.

    This is so disappointed and undemocratic. The same essence on which the party was formed , is very much loosing core value.

    Where are the adults of the party. As it seems these persons are behaving just like children. Maybe some scolding , disciplining , and teaching is needed here.

    Let those two fight. They are both boring, boorish and self-righteous. Just try sharing an opinion with them and you get a non-stop, pointless (not to them) condescending lecture – yada, yada, yada! They should be locked in a room together so they can opine each other into mercifully early (retirement). Every politician should be given a one year task schedule. Failure to execute should require resignation. Among these tasks should be the creation of at least three industries or businesses all of which should provide meaningful employment (not JEEP crap). One should be a net earner of foreign exchange another should address import-substitution and another should stall rural-urban drift. Politics and vote-getting should not be allowed to be the main focus of a politician.

    Any person who threaten another person with fear or violence should not be allowed to attend the Conference. Is this what our country has become ? There must be an immediate stop to it, I just hope the Police will be there awaiting to lock up anyone of them who brings their violence to the Conference. This is the reason why we have so much violence in our country and it needs to put a stop to it now.
