Crawford: Angela Brown Burke, your influence nuh pass William Grant Park. Brown-Burke: Lef mi name alone.

Former junior minister, Kern Spencer, has pleaded with his fellow Comrades, Angela Brown-Burke and Damion Crawford, to end their bitter social media bickering.

Crawford, who is in St Vincent supporting the victorious United Labour Party today declared on Facebook: "Thank God Angella Brown Burke's punishment never extend to St. Vincent up here nice".

Crawford was apparently referring to claims that Brown-Burke had opposed the move for him to be installed as the People's National Party (PNP's) representative for Northern Trelawny. 

The comment seemed to have angered Brown-Burke a PNP vice president.

"Lef mi name alone," she retorted.

"Ask Ralph if a nuh me tell him fi mek you come."

Crawford responded: "Angela Brown Burke Ralph not even mention you as someone to say hello to...ur influence nuh pass William Grant Park."

The St William Grant Park is in the centre of downtown Kingston, the city for which Brown-Burke is mayor.

Spencer, who was in 2014 on trial for corruption, pleaded to his fellow Comrades to end their squabble.

"Come on Damion Crawford and Angella Angela Brown Burke. This cannot be the way. I went through hell and back and I hold no grudges. Lets settle this!!!!" Spencer posted.

Brown Burke later dismissed the argument as 'childish'. 

Crawford has been critical of the party in recent times, even declaring on Twitter earlier this month that "it seems me and the party heading towards irreconcilable differences #prenup."
