  1. …and this to the #UPPNEARGA will say is an election. Just wait and see!!!!

    Kudos to both governments.

    • YES the pertinent question of the decade.

      Curious, what is A&B current debt to the Peoples Republic of China? Taking into account ALL the projects, from the beginning of their ‘assistance’ to the then Lester Bird Govt. onwards, not just this year.

      Is this information shared in the annual budget delivered to Parliament? We the people should know.

  2. Another question: today it’s a housing development, will it remain civilian housing or will it become a military installation?

  3. @Tell The Truth – “what’s China getting in return”?

    Antigua’s liberty, sovereignty and freedom is all.

  4. With election not too far away, can it be said that the Chinese are meddling in Antigua’s politics by signing agreement with the ALP regime at this time?

  5. Where are the people relocated from Booby Alley going to live after there temporary relocation?
    Will they be given new homes that they can afford in the same area?

  6. Rather than the PM saying that this” project is taking the ongoing housing revolution to the Next Level” I would suggest that this political meddling for votes to go the Chinese way is just a case of more crappy quality building done by Chinese owned slaves that we, the people have to pay an exorbitant cost for; either by cash or land and more infiltration of Chinese into the island. I think we can be assured that this woman climbed up in the ranks of the communist Chinese party by towing the CCP line to achieve the Chinese agenda of controlling the world by 2049…WAKE UP ANTIGUA, THEY ARE NOT DOING THIS BECAUSE THEY LIKE YOU. They want the Caribbean islands for themselves and being that they commit the most inhumane atrocities against their own people in China it is not a stretch to say they will do the same here when the time is right for them.

  7. It would be interesting to know if and how much Gaston Browne is benefitting from this deal.
    Always follow the money trail.

  8. Gaston,I do hope you knew exactly what you were signing. Your signatures were all over the Yida Documents. Then when you were asked by Serpent on Observer Radio. About certain matters inside of those documents,signed by you. You did not realize the full contents of that which you signed. You then promised that you would be going back to Parliament to change certain provisions of said Contract. We are still waiting for those changes to be made by you. By the way,where is YIDA?

  9. Gaston Browne giving away our lands and our rights. You voted for him, that’s what you get.
