Quoting the IMF, Lovell reveals more than $400M was lost in Browne Administration’s giveaways and waivers

21

Harold Lovell, Political Leader of the United Progressive Party (UPP), says the country is now feeling the pain of the millions of tax dollars given away or waived by the Gaston Browne Administration.

Lovell reveals that the most recent Article IV Report by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) confirms that over $400 million in taxes was lost in this way.

The UPP Political Leader says the Browne Administration seems incapable of handling tax-payers’ money prudently.

He notes that the authorities had promised to curtail tax waivers, but that this does not appear to have happened. — REAL News

  1. People should ask what politicians and their party get from these waivers. Ever wonder where the Labour Party giveaways at Christmas and during their campaign come from?

  2. 135 million ABST dollars Sandals was able to collect and hold on to making up their profits …. thats 1 investment atleast this 400 million includes my car duty-free as an ordinary man – I was empowered- if it wasn’t for the dutyfree in which I received, I would not have been able to buy my car

    • Poor people getting help, no problem with that. What happened to the person who forged Gaston’s signature? You think a rich business person was involved, why no disclosure of who involved yet?

    • IF GASTON DID NOT GIVE AWAY CONCESSIONS TO PARADISE LOST WITHOUT A PERFORMANCE CLAUSE, HE WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO PAY LIAT WORKERS OR PENSIONERS OR SOLID WASTE.

      BARBUDA. 00. SEAT

      LANDSLIDE VICTORY FOR ABLP. Ana Salome you are wasting your time. No One listening to You and UPP.

      • THIS IS THE MOST RECENT POLL:
        UPP 12 SEATS
        ABLP 4 SEATS
        BPM 1 SEAT

        UPP WINS BY A LANDSLIDE
        SORRY ERIC THE RED. YOUR POLL NUMBERS ARE A FAIRY TALE

        • Since you believe in your polls tell the world the seats that ALP will win and bet your ignorance on it. Behaving like an idiot daily will cause your party to loose more seats. Honestly, you deserve the idiotic crown with all your nonsensical comments and hatred.

  4. @ Anna Salome
    That’s alot of accomplishments. To summarise one party looks to empower the people the other looks to enslave the people while enriching themselves .

  5. Somebody please advise Harold not to make too many statements. They are used against him.
    Please remind him of the ABST Tax giveaway to Sandals. That alone is enough. We will not mention what he gave to Bau Panel, and the Beach Front Land near Friars that the ABLP had to buy back for one million USD. And we can go on and on.

    • PITY GASTON DID NOT PUT IN A PERFORMANCE CLAUSE IN THE PARADISE LOST AGREEMENT.
      THAT WAY YOUR BLACK BROTHERS AND SISTERS MIGHT GET AN EASE UP.

      BUT LIKE GASTON, YOU DON’T CARE ABOUT BLACK PEOPLE

      • Lease land is not a giveaway. And unless you perform you do not get anything. And eventually the lease will expire. And the land will return to the state. Whereas the ABST is gone in the pockets of Sandals. Bau Panel didn’t pay a dime for all that land. Neither did the so-called Invester down at Friars. Yet he had to be paid one Million to return the land.

    • Did Gaston buy back the land so he and family can get it? We know they are a real estate company that grabs all the prime lands.

  6. Any and all things that’s comes out of the mouth of Harry and accolades are a bunch of baboonery. These people are so pathetic and shameful.

    • THAT APPLIES TO GASTON.

      GREAT MINDS DISCUSS IDEAS!
      HAROLD AND HIS ACCOMPLISHMENTS

      PETTY MINDS DISCUSS PEOPLE
      GASTON ON HIS RADIO STATION

  7. The lips of the wise spread knowledge not so the hearts of fools like this angry commentator that’s spout so much garbage from her rear end daily. Me grandma would say a classic Nincompoop. People like you are preventing sane people to follow the UPPITES by the filthy nastiness that comes outta your mouth about others. You are one miserable and disgraceful person with your ignorant comments.
