    • You obviously do not know Max….He is a wonderful person always answers his phone, and do his best to assist where possible. This is from my personal experience. Emanuel has a questionable character he is PUMPUS, BOAST, SPEAK DOWN TO PEOPLE, KNOW IT ALL, FEEL HE IS BETTER THAN PEOPLE, VERY SIMILAR TO MAGINLEY….Personally I like Brian I think he has what it takes but he is not running.

      • All these words and more best describe Gaston Browne he think he deserves to be Prime Minister.
        And who cares about some crooke Peter whatever the man name is I guess he wants to get into bed with the ABLP.

        • Like how he use to be in bed with the UPP you forget that. How high Peter use to rate the UPP. If you forget I understand cause the UPP and their supports or suffering from anmeisa guess to much “sunshine”

    • YOU SEEM CONFUSED, THE PARTY THAT ENRICHED IT’S MINISTERS AND SUPPORTERS BY WASTING OUR HARD EARNED TAXED DOLLARS GOT VOTED OUT IN 2014.. ALL THOSE FENCES AND PURCHASING OF PROPERTIES FROM THEIR SUPPORTERS THAT REMAIN VACANT TO THIS DAY. HAROLD HAS STATED THAT HE WILL CUT THIS AND CUT THAT, BUT MY QUESTION IS, WHERE WILL HE GET THE FUNDS TO MAKE UP FOR THE SHORT FALL? HAROLD IS A PROVEN LIAR.. HOW DO YOU KNOW HE WILL DO ALL THAT HE PROMISED. REMEMBER WE HAD NO PLANS TO ENTER INTO ANY IMF PROGRAM , YET AS SOON AS THEY WON YOU KNOW THE STORY BECAUSE WE ALL LIVE IT. YOU SEEM TO HAVE CONVENIENTLY FORGOTTEN THE HARDSHIPS ANTIGUANS ENDURED UNDER THE FAILED UPP ADMINISTRATION, BUT MOST OF US HAVEN’T. THAT IS WHY WE VOTED THEM OUT. I PERSONALLY CAN NOT SEE MYSELF VOTING FOR THE CURRENT SLATE OF CANDIDATES FOR UPP. JOKE IS JOKE, BUT DAMN JOKE IS NO JOKE!!!
