  1. And who is John Michael Petrie?
    Seemingly not another Antiguan politician honored for supposedly doing their job (as per two recent Sirs) and leading a local company to insolvency.

    In future, Whatabout the GG recommending honest hard working Antiguans & Barbudians who VOLUNTEER their time, services & connections to charitable causes? Surely these unsung s/heroes are more worthy of recognition than any politician?


    Well lard John who?

    Barbuda sand…..

    All these knighthood and awards to undeserving persons must be on the list of things to be addressed by a new administration.

  3. People who truly contributed in society to uplift others are been ignored. So many teachers like Michael Francis former head master of JSS and Cavelle Goodwin Shephard of Bolans Primary. If you check in the ministry of education,a lot of the people who works there came through these two brilliant teachers . People with all kind of dirt in their closet getting awards. Smdh.

  4. What’s going on here? John who? Is he even Antiguan? WHERE HE BORN? Will somebody who knows this guy please give us some information?

    Congratulations to Hugh Marshall, a great man, who made a valuable contribution to this country.

  5. Congrats Hughes Marshall,CBE
    Noblesse oblige a great inspiration to me when I first met him in 1998 , generous and intelligent Antigua and Barbuda politician.

    • So because you met him in 1998.Does that rise to the level of this recognition? Do you really know this man? Is this the same man who left Antigua many years ago and went to England.Before you award persons.Please know their history.That man Hugh Marshall my opinion does not deserve that CBE.Do you know of a company.By the name of Southern Development.Who were the principles of said company.
