  1. So pathetic JUST SAYING. Was there ever a promise to bring a fire truck for Cooks dump? Because the fire truck does not have a ladder and the water capacity is 200,000 gallons or less it is barely suitable for Cooks dump. I give the Prime Minister some credit for assigning it to the dump in the event of a fire there.The Prime Minister is using his grey matter for a change. We await the real fire trucks with ladders etc.

    • Just proof that these idiots don’t read. They are robots that are programmed to come here and respond and spew nonsense. What promise did Gaston Browne keep? To add more rubbish to Cooks? Useful idiots indeed.

  2. This person that writes under the pseudonym Just Saying can’t me right in his head . Clare View isn’t far . After people lost their homes to fire because of no water nor fire tenders availability,this is all you can say ? Did the government got into power two months ago ? After eight years ,you really think people that stupid . You guys need to stop the politicking and get serious . This is what hurting our country . This party alignment and turning a blind eye to reality . Wrong is wrong even majority is supporting it ,and right is right even only one person supports it .

  3. So why did you buy it Mr Browne? I assume you or somebody within ALP authorized and paid for a clapped out old fire truck that you say is fit for Cookes Dump…so please tell us why this was purchased.

  4. When I told you Laborites that the Fire Truck look used.Some of you wanted my head.Why no one else could come out and say something.Is it a one person Administration in Antigua? Why Cutie Benjamin and or Elvis Weaver could not come and let the people know.Too much corn in their mouths,afraid of being choked.It does belong at Cooks Dump.That is the right place for it.

  5. How is it that so many of you are so angry at the progress of this country. Promise made….promise kept. Government at work. 5 more years continue to be earned.

    • @Just Saying
      I guess your progress is wasting our money to buy rubbish. You want to bet somebody got a commission for this purchase?

  6. Just saying,

    Correct me if am wrong. Is this fire truck 23 years old or not? Your right, it’s fit for cooks dump? You and Gaston got that right. The only problem is it’s a waste of money to bring it to Antigua to dump it. Then again, y’all don’t have a brain. Just saying!

  7. Again JUST SAYING was there ever a promise to get a fire tender for Cooks dump. A fire tender came that was not fit for purpose and the Prime Minister assigned it to the Cooks dump. The Fire Chief had even announced that that very fire tender would be stationed at the Fire Department Headquarters in St. John’s. Where is the “promise made” “promise kept” in this situation.

  8. Mr PM, let me set the Record Straight, I offered 20 yes u hear 20 fire trucks and I was turn down. The trucks would have Cost the Government 2.3 million USD to but and ship to Antigua not no dam 5 trucks , 20. It comprise of 10, tenders, 5 tankers and 5 over the head reach fire trucks , I have my dam invoice to prove and even the proposal I sent to cabinet, which I was told was turn down. Ok

    • Did you offer any “creative enrichment” to anyone?……No, Well that’s why you were turned down.
