Water flowing from pipe against blurred mountain background.

Prime Minister Gaston Browne says no decision has been taken to increase water rates in the country.

He says however, this may have to be done to curb wastage sometime in the future. Listen here:

  1. He wouldn’t dare raise the water rates. We pay enough already with no value for our money.

    Talking about water:

    Today is Monday the 30th of September 2022, and there is now 123 days (exactly 4 months) until the Prime Minister’s promise of a nation wide functioning water supply system in Antigua.

    Hopefully, everything is going to plan, because 123 days is a very very tight schedule.


  2. A decision I suspect has been made to increase the water rate. That was implied by him some time ago on his Saturday “Trash” talk shop. Paraphrasing here: He did say that increasing the water rates is something that is on the table for discussion. The production cost has increased, infrastructure improvements are taking place and demand of the resource is increasing.

    Basic Economics: Cost is driven by demand and supply of a commodity, resource or service. Period!!

    We’ll let the election take its course. We will see if they are re-elected then we will know if the usage rate gets a boost!

  3. 🤔

    What wastage? Only thing coming through the pipes is air!

    There’s no time to waste any dyam water!

    At least there’s no talk, at the moment, for increasing the bill for air that flows through my pipes !

  4. Any one believes anything coming from Gaston’s mouth? Just like you said that no one would be forced to be vaccinated. Man you are a NOTORIOUS Liar.

  5. Gaston is like a drowning man grasping at a straw. Right now, every time he opens his mouth he pushes his foot in it. Like nothing he says and does make sense anymore. He jinks. Everything he touches just spoil. Now he talking about a woman who contacted him with the story that she was raped as a girl by one of the UPP candidates. I want to know, did she report the matter to her parents? Did they report the matter to the Police? Why only now this story is coming out? Anybody believe this story would also believe that the cow jumped over the moon.
