  1. Prime Minister’s REAL translation:

    “My wife is really struggling to do her job as the Housing Minister …”

    Citizens of Antigua REAL translation:

    “If the Housing Minister knew of these skilled shortages, where was her plan B?”

    “Maria Bird-Browne is doing a sterling job as Housing Minister and she will solve Antigua’s housing problems by 2042, and furthermore, we’ll continue to back her (and the ABLP) come what may … ROLL ON 2042”
