  1. Wow 😳 wow wow wow Prime Minister Brown quite a comprehensive agenda how agenda I have listened to the News around the world and that at least seventy percent of the Heads of state finding time of their schedule to dialogue with their people I noticed for the nine years you have only met twice

  2. There’s a surprise that the Prime Minister will be dancing abroad instead of dancing at home.

    And in the meantime Rome (opps, I meant Antigua) burns.

    Surely, Gaston Browne could have made arrangements to send someone in his place.

    How many days does he spend away from Antigua conducting “talking shops” instead of resolving ongoing problems here.

    I bet if you added up all the days he dance abroad it would be a considerable amount.


    • What have autochthonous Antiguans done to deserve a part-time Prime Minister like this?

      Politics shouldn’t be sometimeish … Tarl!

      No brix, we need representation at the highest level. Remember we are hosting the SIDS conference here next year. It will be the biggest conference Antigua has ever hosted.
      Leadership matters.
      And you can keep screaming that the sky is falling, and Antigua is burning. Chicken Little.

      • Sidey, are you one of those STUPID Gassssston Browne lemmings, as described by another commentator on this particular thread?

        SEEMS SO … 😁

  3. Lawd…this donkey clown is making himself look busy and well-versed on those topics…His AI app must have been working overtime. He should be ashamed to even open his stinking mouth, knowing what he has done, or caused to be done in Barbuda and here, lately allowing the destruction of a mile of sustainable mangrove and a pond…all so a hotel could claim the beach! He thinks we are as stupid as those lemmings around him. I wish someone could disrupt his speeches, so that these world leaders would truly know what a fucking fraud he is. .Back in my NYU days, we would have had a silent protest…now I can only grind my teeth and cuss silently.
    People, this clown is an embarrassment to this country!
