  1. Can I as a recreational cruise boat operator take hotel guests out to enjoy some time on the beaches of our off shore islands ?

    just asking.

      • Lol…. I was only asking.
        Well..I am sure some persons with boats will be out surfing the waters and having beach parties on the off shore islands. Just close your eyes and see how coast guard will open their eyes wide and ignore all the rich and connected people flout the law. It is just the way corruption works and Antigua is a “paradise” of corruption. It is built into the blood of a deceived people who happily prefer to remain deceived and corrupted. What a shame !
        The laws of this nation are only enforced for the small common man. The rich and politically connected are governed by the” do as you like laws” since they are the ones who control the government.
        Big MONEY rules. Corruption is the norm.
        All who follow the corruption and enjoy the fruits of its ways now, will one day soon wish they had forsaken the evil. Then it will be too late.
        Antiguans take a page from the Barbudans’ book. Just one page…and maybe you will learn something good.
        Moreover…. reject evil and seek good.
        This nation is doomed and the warning signs are written all over. Anyone can close his/her eyes and see….but the temporary loot is TOO SWEET.
        Gain the world and lose your soul. WHAT A PEOPLE: FROM politrickians, religious misleaders, business people, air traffic controller, calypsonians, taxi/bus drivers, statutory boards members, permanent secretaries, radio talk show hosts, journalists, political party jumpers, ….. just to list a few. The whole nation is in a NASTY, SMELLY MESS.
        The majority of young people are only interested in fetes, drugs, nasty lyrical music, fashionable clothes, fast cars, sex. Sodom and Gomorrah. It is an attitude of live fast and die because they have been cultured to believe that life is a game. No hope.
        The sad part of it all is that the people love it so. Hence, so will this nation suffer the consequences of its evil ways.
        We will reap the fruits of corruption. There is no escaping that. So close your eyes and minds and wish it away. JUST WILL NOT HAPPEN.
        Because of the rampant corruption from the top officials ….businesses and the common man….. the end is fast approaching. IT WILL NOT BE A NICE END either.

        WORLD “CRYSIS”: WAKE UP, Antiguans. CORRUPTION IS YOUR DOWNFALL

    • Just make sure they charge and fine or lock up the white people who violate the rules, same as black people. No exceptions. The law is for the lawless, all of them.

  2. It’s high time this crooked govt gets voted out. Every last one of them. Enough of the Draconian dictatorship rule.
