  1. Great news!

    So lovely to know that the Honourable Hilson ‘Brother B’ Baptist is recovering well from his recent illness; and it’s good to hear the love and support from his family, friends and former colleagues.

    I for one will never forget his drive, enthusiasm and fight to ensure that life saving drugs were made available for Antiguans when needed back in the day – you will always be a man of the people, for the people.


  2. Good to hear, miss that restaurant he had in town. Helps explains why I prefer the airbnb concept over the all inclusive ( money more circulates in the economy with the airbnb). Anyway Hilston, wishing you a full recovery. Not sure what wisdom you can offer the foolish virgin. Unlike you, he will ever be a minister so him learning from your multiple mistakes won’t help

    • @ tenman

      Nobody can ever take anything you say seriously- your entire statement is a paradox and should be ignored. Just like you promised all 17 seats will be won by the ABLP in January and especially the All Saints East and St Luke’s will definitely be won by Colin James, just so you promised that Shuggy made a bad mistake and the seat will be taken from him when he loses the seat by proclamation of your ‘setup’ judge. What will you do when he wins? Lick up your vomit?

      • @Money election – He lost the seat. Gave it up before the judge could. You happy he wasted tax payers money by not following a well known rule? Was reminded a few days ago that persons for eg in the US get charged and eventually go to prison for what Suggy did. Take the time to read the Hatch act and its prohibition of Federal workers engaging in partisan politics

      • @Big John stud- Wow such hate. Must be going something good. My siblings will tell you I am her favorite hence she spoiled me. Anyway boss have no hatred for you. Let go of the hate, its not healthy

  3. You mean this man would live to see another day in order to get rid of bird people. We all as they say only the good die young.

  4. Kipfar from shugy. Dat guy is bad news. Last time ppl see u a campaign wid he, u tek een. Like Jonah he a run Fram God. Jonah bring problems to de ship. Only when dem toss he overboard ebbryting carm dung. Plz Meer beg u fee kip Fram de backsliding APOSTLE SHUGY SIMON OF THE NAZARENE CHURCH.
