  1. Let’s stop putting so many people in prison. If there are foreigners in prison, they should be immediately deported from Antigua and be lifetime barred from returning.

    Has anybody noticed that as Antigua allowed more CARICOM nations to immigrate to Antigua, our crime rate went up big time?

    CARICOM is a joke and Antigua should withdraw from it ASAP.

  2. Hope that ABS gets a new state of the art building. They need more studio spaces and other rooms. ABS has come a long way and made significant strides. Congrats to the management and staff. Keep pressing on to higher heights.

  3. @ Real talk. Profits will be used to capitalize projects that will not add value.

    This is absurdity profits from an insurance company should be used to generate revenue, we live in a hurricane prone country.

    If they are so liquid to kill the profit dollars why not lower medical and life premium so that more persons can be insured.
