  1. Upgrading the plant of ABICE is a good thing.

    Too bad there are scarce few jobs for graduates of ABICE, UWI, ASC and everywhere else.

    Imagine ABLP boasting about “education revolution” while having dozens of failed projects, mass business failures, 1000s of lost job opportunities and mass unemployment.


    • It is great news that ABICE is getting an upgrade. All of our tertiary institutions should be upgraded to a similar standard.
      Focusing on trades is also great and much needed. Agree that graduates from these institutions can have a tough time finding jobs locally in their fields. But, that’s because those jobs don’t yet exist in large quantities. Thus, the graduates need to be pioneers and create those jobs.This can be intimidating and risky. So, most just end up doing something else. Graduates need support from family and community to use their newly acquired knowledge to start a new enterprise. They might need to team up and brainstorm together. They might need startup investments from friends and family etc. Be the change you wish to see.

  2. I live in All Saints and with all these clearings of lands and nothing happening, I have a piece that I need to clear please to make something happen.

  3. Ah, is this another Fiennes? Or Jolly Beach? Did you receive the money Gassy? Or is it in escrow? There’s the building housing varmits on Nugent Ave that was supposed to be a state of the art hospital. Look, we are not easily moved by this sudden flurry of activities that will amount to nada. Public servants, until the money is in your pockets, believe nothing this guy says.
