  1. Is this country being run by idiots? We close do the whole country for a little rain and wind! Not even a named storm? We have to be the laughing stock for the rest of the Caribbean! This government really have no leaders or people with sense! Gaston is just killing this country!

  2. Chups. It’s called a caring government with vision to protect its people. Prevention is better than cure

  3. @OLD ANTIGUAN Don’t you find it strange that we are a laughing stock for fhe Caribbean, yet the very same Caribbean govts are taking pages from the book of our Gov’t to protect and empower their economic status, residents & citizens? Perhaps u should get your thoughts rechecked!!

  4. No other government has locked down! But i guess we hate work in this country and any excuse to stay home is a good one
