  1. Organised breaking he is talking from experience have no doubt in his mind, from the same ALP play book.

    • @ Gaston

      These ABLP vagabons, including Gaston, this is from their own playbook…..look how he twist it around and blame the opposition, an opposition who is peace to the dead. Anybody more agressive than ABLP, people cower with fear from Gaston and Cutie with their TEAR=GASSING, U TINK ANTIGUA PEOPLE FARGAT AR U.

      U GUYS ARE SICK AND MUST GO

  2. I agree with the teachers to have more “robust” security at the schools. Now the government needs to hold dem same teachers responsible and to the task of teaching our children. Penalize them when they go on extensive sick leaves, when they fail to show up for classes often, when they underperform and it reflects in the results.

    As it is now, many of these schools, taking credit for results that are really due to the after classes parents spending money to send their children.

    So yes, secure the schools, but also demand that all the teachers work for the money they are paid.

  3. Its callous & Scandalous to initiate
    A strike..
    How About All Marchers bond together
    FORM a VoluntAry Security System for
    Schools..Lets GO .
    Save Strike Foo Bigger Fish..
    Petty Politics designed to DISRUPT…
    Who stole the EBOOK
    Hook / Crook.
    That’s How it Looks

  4. The growth of burglaries, vandalism and thefts In our schools has been an issue for a while now.

    I remember the outcry to the government to do something about it; and Gaston Browne’s silence was deafening like other crime issues in Antigua.

    It should not take a letter from teachers to get a reaction like this from our Prime Minister to take notice.

    As I’ve said before, that this is all a result of him doing too much dancing abroad instead of dealing with URGENT matters at [email protected]

    Gassy’s constant procrastination is so nauseating now … ACTION SPEAKS LOUDER THAN YOUR MEANINGLESS WORDS!!!

    • Every night A GOVERNMENT SCHOOL is Broken into. You have Mary E Pigotts, OCS and Adventist School on the same road in the same vicinity and there is no over night security at none but is only Mary E Pigotts and OCS are Broken into, for some it’s just to defecate on the desk or to just break the AC Unit, just to steal a printer…. this is organized crime

  5. Prime minister u have no clue of what you are talking about……..it should be clear that you don’t care about the education system In this country……… take the money that you are using for your self back into the country…..it’s always the same talk …..you are all talk talk talk ….nothing else ……. you-all rent your friend building n pay rediculas money evading the people of Antigua………all those government minister have new vehicle paid for by the people of Antigua money……use it for us for once.

  6. Teachers are human like all other workers and perform many different roles during a school day. It is unfortunate that some schools, public schools are saddled with children who have never been to schools in their native homelands and are joining school for the first time in a Grdae 5 or 6 class or children who are branded as being slow in other schools and are expected to write a national assessment. The playing field needs to be leveled then we an have a discussion about results and teacher performance. Safety in the workplace is paramount. Let us not act as though the union is just making this request now, security was promised long ago and the promise was not kept. It was on the table long ago.

  7. Teachers get 3% raise ABLP cabinet members get a 50% raise if we put these greedy wicked set of people back in power. A caring government for their members not for the citizens

    • Why make up these fake figures?
      Question: When did this Cabinet members raise took place?
      Answer: Never
      Conclusion: Totally made up LIES

  8. There was another big fight in front of Princess Margaret school on Friday afternoon. After the chopping incident the mobile police were on patrol for a week then stopped. The Ministry really wants to hear that there is a murder one of these days. Some of these schools need serious security.

  9. Gaston shut you plucking mouth and buy at least one sungle fan to let the teachers and students think you care about them.
    You are chatting pure bull chit and lies.
    All the burning of schools and cane fields happened when PLM was in power. PLM govt had to employ special securities staff. The labourites burned πŸ”₯ them because they have this notion that only ALP must govern the country

    • @ FOUR. PAY CHECKS MINIONS

      YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT. IS SO LIE GASTON LIE. HE USING REVERSE PSYCHOLOGY TO FOOL THE PEOPLE.
      IT IS EXACTLY WHAT THE ABLP DID TO PLM WHEN THEY WERE IN GOVERNMENT, SO NOW HE THINKS PEOPLE USING THEIR OWN PLAYBOOK ON DEM.
      I TOTALLY DISLIKE GASTON AND THE ABLP.
      DEM LIE LIE LIE LIE….LORD PLEASE DELIVER US FROM THIS EVIL SET OF PEOPLE.

  10. GB it’s like you alone carrying the fight on the behalf of ABLP to the opposition. The reason being that you have now empowered your ministers to speak freely. When there is an issue with Water/ APUA you respond, health you respond and don’t talk about housing. Where is the Minister of Education. Is he still away at the funeral of the X Japanese PM. That is still not an excuse because he could still answer via the social media. This is what happens when you surround yourself with bunch of yes men.

  11. Wow 😳😳😳 wow wow PM stop your nonsense I remember in the day during the PLM era. The entire country was disrupt it was bomb threat after bomb threat remember the bombing of the General Post Office and the Airport.Gaston stop the lie . The burning of the Canfield’s ask Ivor their was Puking from Potters and Senator for life you for get . P M talk about Choski you will be surely be tried for crime against humanity you need know a good human rights lawyer can’t carry Mr Astaphan he can’t help you to the Haig here I come. Hope that you get your friend from DA to be your cell mate . When you gone guess what the big mussel man a go feed in your garden. Remember on the Brown and Brown Show can you believe how she was humiliated when I saw and heard that I come to realize that you don’t care about no one. Asot laughing at you
