PM Defends Decision Not To Attend CARICOM Meeting


Prime Minister Gaston Browne has dismissed a meeting of CARICOM as “ceremonial,” defending his decision not to attend.

The meeting was held on Friday morning via zoom, an online meeting platform.

Prime Minister Browne was notably absent.

Asked whether he boycotted the meeting the prime minister told his radio programme “there was nothing to discuss.”

He said there was no need to attend the meeting where people would seek to “lecture me on LIAT.”

During the Twentieth Special Conference of Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community, (CARICOM), which was held virtually, due to covid-19, Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley demitted chairmanship of the Caribbean Community to Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Dr. Ralph Gonsalves.

  1. Gaston is a boldface confounded lier. For once, tell the truth. You are ashamed & thought you would be laughed at for your part of running LIAT on a reef. You’re a failure. You’re a fail experiment. Leadership matters. Barbados, St Vincent & even St Kitts-Nevis PMs, all make you look infantile. Reveal the truth “WORLD ASS”.

  2. Gaston Clown, World Ass, please go on the national Radio/Tv & tell the reason why the Barbuda deal fell through. Leadership Matters.

  3. You guys should be a a shame of a man standing up for a culture as work for the residents and a company that employs more Antiguans. Ok something ain’t right within that country but that man is trying to save Antiguans jobs. Am not a politician or support either but quit the BS and see Antiguans are at the fore front. The bigger countries have a hate to the thrive of ANTIGUA. Am I proud to be one and call this man the prime minister and will support him

  4. Petty.
    So A&B believe it is OK to be publicly undiplomatic to other sovereign Caricom nations but it is not OK for Caricom, or nations therein to question, debate & discuss A&B publicly about Liat? Ummm interesting diplomacy.
    Surely a consensus Caricom decision about viable intra-regional airlines and the unified fees & taxes to be charged would benefit all people of Caricom?
