    Thank God for the Gaston Browne’s administration. It’s an administration who cares for the wellbeing of the people….

    • And you’re telling me that you DON’T UNDERSTAND why Gaston Browne is doing this before calling the next General Election @ Bluddy Bloke???

      The writing of the acolytes is beyond hilarious now … you guys are parodying yourselves on a daily basis 🤣🤣🤣

      Mi rib ah hurt mi 😂😂😂 … ease-up nah 😆😅🤭

  2. Finally whew….again the union fees is also part of the millions that the Government paid thru the lawyers…so please AWU don’t tax the workers them.
    The thrift fund is it both the workers deduction plus the jolly Beach matching portion….I do hope.

    Give thanks!



    • That property(Jolly Beach) was own by we THE PEOPLE,not Gaston “Stache”Browne and his band of Merry Men. So what are you thanking him for?

    • The UPP trucks rolling all the way to win the next General Election … 🚚🚛🚚🚛🚚🚛

      YIPPEE YI YAY!!!

  4. Good job done by the ABLP led government. Unfortunately the union was too busy enjoying the bribes from the company to actually work. One need only realize that nothing was put in place to protect the thrift fund to see the union was in bed with those who looted this property. My mind goes back to an election where Ralph Francis ran against another candidate. Francis was quick to ask the question where his opponent (UPP ticket) got all this campaign money (war chest) from. Said in all his years in politics, he had never such a large war chest at play. One then thinks back to the 2018 election and the same candidate had more money to campaign then any of his other UPP colleagues (even HL). The one for rural east (Young) was so resourced starved that he had to be standing on ladder, putting up his own campaign paraphernalia
