  4. Oh yes let the congratulations come in quick fast and in a hurry. Ironically had it been a foreign person elevated to a high position in Antigua the table would have turned from positive comments to condemnation. I say so without fear and await the response from my own detractors.

  5. She must have the combined IQ of the rest of Freemans Village. Congrats to her for escaping.

    • Apparently, your IQ is that of a jellyfish because persons have posted she is from Freetown and not Freemans Village.

    • @Insecticide backle…

      The present matriarch of the Brodie Clan is 92 years young, a former teacher who’s still very cognizant of what her role is. She ‘s a living example of endurance, tenacity and steadfastness, as she #Shares her wisdom with all to include Judge Brodie, and other professionals from the Village of #FarHill, now known as #FREETOWN.

  6. Congratulations Margo, we Antiguan’s are very proud of you, especially people from Freetown, May God continue to bless you. Stay safe, much love ❤️

  7. If this fine bright mind was at the CCJ we would have assacinate her character like how we did with the other bright minds on our CCJ who are like us and come from amongst us. We do not respect and honor our own people. Only abroad they can get the recognition they so well deserve. It is sad.
    I applaud and congratute this Antiguan born lady. And wish her all the best in life.

    • Because people do believed .Your CCJ adjudicators are to politically connected.To close in concert with Politicians.That breeds biases and biased results.

  8. Congratulations sister. And to know that you did attend Pares. Goes to show that not all bright minds attended Antigua Girls High School. Many Antiguans have to leave Antigua to shine.
