  1. He lie. He damn lie. He’s a fibber. You hear how this man just tell lie to get you to vote him in for another five.

    Time to vote him out. Duct tape he mouth; to stop them lie from coming out. He lie! He damn lie. What a fibber. He LIE!

  2. 10% growth?? How could you Gaston Browne know. What the Economy would look like next month never mine next year. By the way,I did not listen to his recording. No need for me to do so. He is just filled with hot air(gas) and releases it from time to time. And ANR would print it.

  3. Top Dawg the last time the IMF article IV report was published was May 2014 by the UPP administration. Before you talk about growth on your brain, the citizens of Antigua and Barbuda would love to read about your mismanagement of the economy from June 2014 to present. Please give the IMF the ok to publish it’s findings on our country. No credibility investor will invest in Antigua and Barbuda without the IMF article IV report. Why hide it for the past seven years you brag about growth, well the citizens still looking for it. Is there something in the IMF report you don’t want the citizens to read. Over two billion in CIP none taxable revenue and nothing to show for it. What a shame! Over eight hundred million tax revenue every year for the pass seven years, nothing to show for it. Way de money garn? Top Dawg!

  4. So could finish this year? Ok cool

    No more state of emergency then? Seen

    All things considered, no excuses next year if 10% was not achieved. Given the circumstances 10% projection seems on point for the farm but the country is definitely another story.

  5. Wow! This is unbelievable. Gaston Browne is now taking the residents of Antigua and Barbuda for idiots. The IMF and ECLAC have published their growth predictions for Latin America and the Caribbean and no where is Antigua close to 10%. Perhaps Gaston has Guyana in his mind when he is talking about Antigua. Even Dominica is predicted to have a higher growth than Antigua. Gaston you must be living on Mars.
