Michael Browne responds to critics of his travels abroad

11

Education Minister Michael Browne has responded to critics who say he is a frequent flyer.

The main opposition party UPP and activist group The Movement have been especially critical of Browne for abandoning his duties at home for undisclosed travels around the world.

The minister has also been accused of spending more time outside of Antigua and Barbuda than in his ministry.

Browne told the Lower House earlier today that he is well aware of the criticism but has chosen not to respond.

“I haven’t heard it so much this term but during the first term but I have been accused so much of being a travelling minister,” Browne told colleagues.

“Nothing tall go so nah,” the minister added.

“This term around I have just decided to respond because the former minister said if you leave it alone it might become true.”

  1. Wait y he not telling us about the E books who benefited which company was created to supply the computers ,did he receive monies ???papers will be coming out about this soon ……where is the money that was given to the liberta school that was spent on some cheap computers 22 computers at over eight thousand us each ???answers please……people stop asking that question it does not matter one bit u r a failure

    • Baca a simple google search would reveal that the company which got the contract, existed years before the ABLP got into office. Fortunapix Private Limited is a Private incorporated on 17 January 2012. Its two listed directors are: THUMMALA ASHOK CHETTY, and NIRMALASHOK THUMMALACHETTY. You do know that Micheal Browne was not even a candidate for the ABLP in Jan 2012. The decision to go with him happened in 2013

  2. So what’s the story, you call that a response? Plenty citizens want to know not only UPP and Movement. They want to know about the useless tablet purchase, the ultra-expensive computers and they wonder what you are actually doing to benefit students.

    • The story is that, in his first public response to public criticism of his “frequent flyer miles”, that he gave little to nothing as a response in defense of the allegations.

      • Given this article you would think this was the bill that was being debated. And we are to educate the people on substantial matters from Parliament. I see you guys not much different than Observer. Must be coming out of he same stable.

    • Don’t willingly remain ignorant. The Cabinet has post cabinet briefings every week. Asking questions through your media house is simple, Or if you so wish just call into the Browne and Browne show on Saturday. The PM will gladly entertain any questions you may have. You may even WhatsApp or send your question via Facebook. Unless you prefer to stay in ignorance.
