  1. According to Gisele the PM buckled under pressure of the Antiguans in the USA diaspora. What a woman/man. Glad we have a caring government. Who want to think they buckled fine. I say the listened to the cries out there and they cared. And instead of extending it for a month the extended it for the entire year.
