Prime Minister Gaston Browne said:

“I love my Barbudan brothers and sisters and I shall continue to fight unrelentingly for their empowerment.”

Today the Privy Council held that parliamentary sovereignty must be upheld in Antigua and Barbuda following a challenge by Barbuda MP Trevor Walker over the Paradise Found Act.

“Nevertheless, it is clear that, subject to any constitutional impediment, the principle of parliamentary sovereignty applies whereby any later Act can expressly or impliedly repeal an earlier Act. It would appear to follow that, unless and until the Government acts on its intention to entrench the provisions of the 2007 Act by amending section 123 of the Constitution, the provisions in the Paradise Found Act can, and do, disapply the provisions of the 2007 Act; and that, furthermore, the subsequent repeal of the 2007 Act by section 6 of the Crown Lands (Regulation) (Amendment) Act 2018 is valid.”

The act paved the way for Robert DeNiro to build a resort on the sister-isle. The JCPC said the Act was not a breach of Walker’s constitutional rights.

  1. Trevor Walker is still M.I.A

    Years of LIES, DECEIT and BRAINWASHING inflicted on the people in the constituency of Barbuda by Trevor Walker and the Frank cult leaders have finally CRUMBLED at the base. Time to heal from Cognitive Dissonance and move on

  2. TREVOR WALKER will never win another election in Barbuda. Trevor has been fooling Us for far too long. Trevor , As a Young Barudan You have been deceiving Barbudans for DECADES. Shame on Trevor Walker.

    • So you had to come back here and HIDE LIKE A COWARD BEHIND AN ALIAS to say this??? Haha 🤡 Time longer than rope and all that glitters isn’t gold. Look at Antigua today and let THAT be a precursor for what is to come. Antiguans forces into the middle of the country while the beautiful plots of seafront properties are either sold right back to the descendants of the oppressors or priced right out of our reach. Development is good yes but it depends on who the visionary is and that leader of ours is NOT one to trust. Not everybody wants skyscrapers and luxury vehicles running around them. BARBUDA IS A GEM, A PEACEFUL ONCE UNSPOILED GEM. You should FIGHT for it as a “young BARBUDAN” and not worry about Trevor Walker winning or losing. FIGHT FOE COUNTRY BECAUSE PARTY NOR POLITICIANS FIGHTING FOR US THE PEOPLE. Especially Lanny Bozo aka Grabston. I weep for your children as I weep for mine who may one day not be able to be proud owners of a piece of the Antiguan Paradise pie

  3. Though the case at the privy council was about who owned the lands in Barbuda. Didn’t know it was about Paradise Found.

  4. WHEN WILL JUSTICE BE DONE FOR NIGEL CHRISTIAN AND WHEN WILL THE BROKER BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE ALONG WITH OTHERS FOR THEIR CRIMES INCLUDING THE $3,000,000 FRAUD.

    HELP MY CRIES

      • YOU AND GASTON AND THE BROKER WHO FORGED HIS SIGNATURE AND RIPPED OFF THE TREASURY OF $3,000,000 CAN ANSWER THAT.
        ARE YOU AND TINKING NASTY LIARD MOUTH UNCOUTH MOUTH GASTON AND YOU HIS USEFUL IDIOTS CLEAN.

        JUSTICE NOW FOR NIGEL, IF NOT NOW WHEN THE GOVERNMENT CHANGES ALL WILL BE REVEALED. I CANNOT WAIT TO HEAR THE EXPOSE

  5. And how you be fighting for Barbuda Gaston Browne by making it another Jumby Bay. The type of development you have in mind for Barbuda will end up with a system of Apartheid. Your plan is flawed because you only see money.

  6. Mr Browne, you will be fighting to plant an APARTHEID system in Barbuda. Tell us about the buffer zones. So sad.

  7. “Tragically, Browne contended, the contentious issue of the ownership of the land in Barbuda had been used for decades by the BPM and UPP to INTENTIONALLY ORCHESTRATE POLITICAL MISCHIEF and drive a wedge and cause acrimony between Barbudans and the Antigua-based Central Government. “The very alliance between the BPM and UPP was predicated on that
    ownership MYTH. “They knew better, but they have deceptively and deliberately sought to in-
    stitutionalise and weaponise the MYTH of ownership to achieve, and maintain, political relevance

  8. Ask the chief information officer and Sherry the news reader and Tonio the cameraman at ABS Radio and TV what went wrong the night Tessa was shot who took Tessa to the scene where the incident happened. 🌹 Tessa haunting you
