  1. Antigua COULDN’T fear any better had it not been the stewardship of Gaston Browne at the helm of our beloved democratic state. If it is true that the voice of god is the voice of the people we did well in obeying that voice several years ago as no one knew this was coming. God Bless PM Browne and his team.

  2. Just Saying I know you Just Say things because it sounds good coming out of your mouth
    Yes yes we couldn’t fear any better WITHOUT THE STEWARDSHIP OF THE MOUSTACHE. GOD BLESS GASTON AND HIS TEAM OF MERRY MEN.
    CONS :

  3. God bless the leader of this great nation. The leader is the choice of the people, a man of integrity and principle, a natural leader in the tradition of our founders. Like everywhere else, our problems and struggles are many, but we are blessed with noble leadership during this difficult time in the earth, in the tradition of our Black Democratic Socialist founding fathers and mothers. We are blessed to have them at the helm, and that even includes the honourable leader of the opposition. Long Live Antigua! Forward Ever!
