  1. Gaston Browne’s Translation:

    “My family, friends, associates and myself made a 7.4% growth in our incomes, property portfolios, land grabs, stocks, shares and bonds. 💰💰💰

    “Furthermore, my fellow citizens of Antigua & Barbuda, 🇦🇬 you will also see a growth of 7.4% in your cost of living, foood, housing, gasoline, indirect taxation, utility bills – at present my cabinet and I are currently working on how to tax FRESH AIR by 7.4% as well.

    “BUT DON’T WORRY, YOU’LL BE POOR BUT VERY HAPPY!”

    The Hon. Gaston “Gassy” Browne 🥸

  2. What can I say? The preachers of doom and gloom of this country can’t take news of this kind. They cannot live with reality. But no matter how the dogs bark the wagon moves on. When you see the thousands on the streets playing T-Shirt mass, you know the people have money to spend. So, you guys keep on living under your rock and preach doom and gloom to your followers. We will continue to live in Luxury.

    • You may LOVE Gaston Browne now, and can’t see any faults in him, but remember @ From The Sideline:
