      Baldwin never threatened to ‘TUMP HE IN HE FACE’, – what a role model for the children.

      Isn’t that part of the reason for the violence among the youths as poignantly explained by Shuggy to the PM in parliament?

  1. Most of these heinous incidents could be stymied, if we had the engagement of 7/24 proactive policing, instead of reactionary barracks cops. Give the police the tools and pay incentives, and let them do the job they were hired to do. Good Governance must include good citizen-security, for all citizens and guest. But with the over saturation of none nationals vieing to effect imported influence and norms: the genies are now none contained, and are having a negative impact on society at large: unlike anything Antigua have ever known, or witness, as I can remember. A moratorium of foreign interlopers is to be considered, such as to get a handle, and avoid the looming anarchy and bedlam of the infectious pervasive criminal elements that has been allowed to be visited and, fester opon us: much so, before its too little – too late.

  2. You invading my space and if you stick around after the ‘tump in you mout’, then it’s cutlass time. Remember election is happening now.
