  1. THIS PAPPY-SHOW, DISREGARD FOR THE RULE OF LAW IS A CANCEROUS BEHAVIOUR AND AFFECTING THE ENTIRE NATION. THE INABILITY TO BRING CHARGES AGAINST A CUSTOMS BROKER WHO DEFRAUDED THE TREASURY OF OVER THREE MILLION DOLLARS ($3,000,000). THE INABILITY TO BRING JUSTICE TO NIGEL CHRISTIAN , THIS WHOLE COUNTRY IS LIKE ONE BIG CARTOON SHOW!!!!

    Speaking of the late Customs Officer,Nigel Christian. He was gun down in cold blood.His Mother said,there were 4 men that took him from her home.However,why are there only 3 men in Custody since that time.What has happen to the fourth man? Did he vanish into the thin Antigua air? Did he swim out into the Atlantic Ocean and never to be seen again? Where the hell is that 4th Person? Time for that person to be arrested and be charged as the other three in Custody.
    WHY THAT CESSPOOL KNOWN BY ALL AS CUSTOMS IS NOT BEING PURGED FROM THE TOP DOWN TO THE LOWEST BOTTOMS.WHY THE MAN WHOM IT HAS BEEN ALLEGE BY GASTON BROWNE THAT FORGE HIS SIGNATURE.WHY HE WAS NEVER ARRESTED AND BE CHARGED FOR FORGERY AND OR FRAUD? IS IT BECAUSE THE COMRADES ARE ABOVE THE LAWS OF GASTON BROWNE’S LAND, ALSO KNOWN AS ANTIGUA?

    • Excuse me sir, although this is important what has it to do with a state visit to Guyana? You are starting to lose your credibility. There is a time and place for everything. You are out of order.

      • It is also alleged that the Spanish women were paid to say they were raped to create fear and havoc in the country. As soon as Labour gained power all the rape stoped. Did the police arrest anybody for rape?

    • Brix, EVERYTHING seems to make you “angry”. Have you tried theraphy????? Or seen a priest? Even a bush doctor might be able to help YOU!!!

      • Hi Bett’s, can I use your Bush doctor? 😂🤣😅

        REMEMBER BETTY, ALLIGATOR 🐊 SHOULDN’T CALL HOG 🐗 LONG MOUT’ …

    • Mr. Gaston Hater.
      I guess in the UK Boris also deals with domestic issues.
      Well, we here have the Ministry of Social Transformation and therein the Gender Affairs Dept.

    • What can a Prime Minister do to make people feel safe? The law enforcement is there to assist victims and arrest violators.
      The PM’s job is manage the economy. There are laws in place to handle criminals.

      • According to Brixtonian the PM needs to come home and deal with it. How I don’t know.

  3. As the saying goes, A king has no honor in his own country.
    Thank God the rest of the world do recognize the brilliance of this man, in the way he has been running this country and standing up for the entire region. Especially when it comes to things like D-Risking and Climate Change.

  4. Brix, EVERYTHING seems to make you “angry”. Have you tried theraphy????? Or seen a priest? Even a bush doctor might be able to help YOU!!!

      • If it does make you angry, start with the members of your party, the UPP. They have a woman killer as candidate and a delinquent father who doesn’t pay the child support.

        • Seriously Brixton is such an advocate for violence against girls and women but supports a party with a man who took a young woman life. Brixton is a hypocrite!!!!

          • Hey “Kettle”, I’m predicting that Brix will never vote UPP again because of the issues you mention. Brix finish with UPP

  6. Through all the political rhetoric the most important questions are not being addressed. Which in my opinion is. Is Antigua and Barbuda through the Ministry of Trade and the Ministry of Agriculture with the farmers that produce crops that can be exported such as our Antigua Black Pineapple. What other Agro-processing goods does Antigua and Barbuda has to showcase to the rest of the Caribbean. Those to me are pertinent questions to our politicians. I believe we are lacking a little too much in our trade endeavors. Guyana has proposed now for years to give farmers of Caricom land to plant their crops and export it to their country. Has anyone taken up the Guyanese proposal and if not why? Surinam has offered Antigua five thousand coconut plants. Has that ever happened? And if not why? Caricom has been made to be a talk shop now for decades. When are we going to see some action. Inter Caricom trade is simply not possible if we do not put the logistics in place. We don’t even want to support LIAT. We need a shipping line that can take produce from one Island to the other. We rely too much on the USA and their shipping lines. And Covid has shown us how scary that can be. Crowley Shipping Line just decided to pull out of the Caribbean, and we were lost. Luckily enough other shipping lines filled the void. Therefore, I do not expect much coming out of this talk shop once again. And my PM said it to their face. We must work together to secure our food. Guyana, Surinam and Trinidad can solve the problems of the entire Caribbean. Only if they work together. Why can Venezuela provide us with such favorable payment terms for oil, but Trinidad, and now Guyana and Surinam that have an abondance of oil cannot. All Selfishness. No comradery as they want us to believe. Each country for itself.

    • Notes From A Native Son Of The Rock! “Afrocentricity is a paradigm based on the idea that African People should assert a sense of agency in order to achieve sanity.” – Afrocentricity, The Theory of Social Change! Ah Mi gud fren! That is surely needed!

      “And my PM said it to their face. We must work together to secure our food. Guyana, Surinam and Trinidad can solve the problems of the entire Caribbean. Only if they work together. Why can Venezuela provide us with such favorable payment terms for oil, but Trinidad, and now Guyana and Surinam that have an abondance (abundance) of oil cannot. All Selfishness. No comradery as they want us to believe. Each country for itself.” FTS! “The Afrocentric paradigm is a revolutionary shift in thinking proposed as a CONSTRUCTURAL adjustment to Black dislocation, disorientation, decenteredness and lack of agency.” Asante! That is why The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela has been able to assist other Caribbean SIDS even with all of the US, British, EU and NATO Sanctions!

      For Decades, this mere voice in the wilderness has been exhorting GoAB, be it UPP or ABLP to revisit their Strategic Thinking and Direction on the intersection of Education, Sports, Economics, Technology, Environment and the Labour Market! As an economy heavily invested in Tourism, Yachting and the Hospitality industry, there is the undying need to create A Centre of Excellence in the Sector!

      Why must Europeans be always at the forefront of our development! Why are we lacking in Creative & Strategic Thinking! The Atlantic Ocean and The Caribbean Sea are the incubators for the creation and development of our Pearls if we could only see beyond “the Beach is just the beginning!”

      Antigua and Barbuda, including Redonda is blessed with one of the Largest Exclusive Economic Zones in the Eastern Caribbean. Why are we not leveraging this advantage to our eternal benefit! We do not need an “ARMY”! The Constitution does not! We need a Coast Guard, similar to Costa Rica and armed to the teeth to patrol and protect our economic, environmental, safety and security interests!

      Once again, Mr. Minister of Education, Combine ABHTI, ABIIT and ASC! Call it whatever you wish but do a merger and create also a School of Faculty for Aviation and Marine Engineering!

      Yes Sir Mr. Prime Minister, with the Strategic Transformation of the Army to Coast Guard and the Integration of the Tertiary Institutions, GoAB and the People of African Descent who are being plagued by youth societal issues will have an opportunity to develop A Cadet Corps to channel the idle hands and those creative and productive students, who wish, into useful educational and labour force pathways to the Hospitality, Tourism, Yachting, Fishing and Transportation – Aviation and Shipping Sectors!

      Why is Antigua and Barbuda and for this matter, the English Speaking Caribbean SIDS and Africa being shut out of Global Development! In its heyday ADOMS was second only to Panama in the Caribbean! Yet we did not create a shipping company or produce a single mariner for the ships registered in our nation! Time to change that Paradigm! Carnival is knocking according to the Minister of Tourism! Will we be up to the Challenge for The High end Technical Jobs or just the hewers of wood, drawers of water and bed chambers as the former UPP Minister of Health demonstrated at the Quay and the Bus Enterprise! Take a serious look at Eastern Caribbean, Agriculture, Shipping and Ferry Services not to mention Aviation!

      From Elizabeth One to Elizabeth Two, did we not learn from the British Planters, Buccaneers and Privateers who sailed the Caribbean seizing booty from Spain, France and others as they saw fit and depositing it into the British Treasury! Captain Morgan that bloodthirsting “British Government Sanctioned Pirate” and Slave Owner was made Governor of Jamaica! Today we People of African Descent in these Caribbean SIDS continue as mere observers and objects, see the same pattern of seizure (US, British, EU and NATO Sanctions and Seizures) as we continue merrily along seeking handouts with nary a peep! Afrocentricity as a theory of political, economic, socio-cultural, technological, legal and environmental change intends to relocate the African person as subject, thus removing and destroying the notion of being objects in the Western and white monopoly capital project of domination! “As a pan-African idea, Afrocentricity becomes the key to the proper education of children and the essence of an African cultural revival and, indeed survival.” – Dr. Molefi Asante, Afrocentricity, The Theory of Social Change!
