Prime Minister Gaston Browne says the decision by opposition senators to boycott last week’s sitting of the Senate is unjustified.

The boycott was over what the opposition senators see as late notice of Senate proceedings.

  1. Those Senators are looking for notoriety. They should be SUSPENDED without pay. UPP Senators are afraid to discuss the BiLLS.

    • Yup. That’s what happens when you have spineless Lovell as the so-called leader. No innovation, no tactics, no real plan. Just a desperate attempt clutching at guinea grass

      • UPP Senators will not be around after next election. They will be replaced by DNA Senators. UPP SENATORS LAZY bunch.

    • @ Burns
      Why isn’t the government following the laws and rules of parliament? Totally in agreement with the UPP senators. Totally disrespectful for this government to do what they please. This is the problem in Antigua. Everyone wants to do as they like and not follow the law, even the government. Before you attack UPP, you should endure that the labour government is not in the wrong.

  2. There seems to be no mutual respect in Antigua and Barbuda. Not even in the highest law making house in the Nation,Parliament. I have been hearing complaints from Parliamentarians for sometime now. They are receiving bills to be tabled in Parliament the day before. They were supposed to be debated. In my opinion that is very unprofessional. How could anyone plan for a proper debate that way. Then those Bills are given all of their readings and passed on said day. We need to be better than that. You are in Parliament to represent the people. When those Bills are being debated at all times.

  3. I sure how none of these boycotters are being paid any kind of salaries or allowances. This is chupid. No work. No pay. Understand???

    • KRISTI I see the time of your comment is after that of WANNA BEE. I would suggest that you read or reread WANNA BEE’s comment to get a better idea of the reasons for the boycott. The law also applies to government and it should follow it. That is the Principle of the Rule of Law. The government needs to follow the law that governs parliamentary procedure. It is that simple KRISTI.

    • That is all you Laborite Arse Kissers could contribute to this story. ZIMBA: Are you still in the bowels of Chet Greene?

  4. Our nation needs to boycott world dictator traitor tyrant liar Gaston Browne and his entire band of hoodlums.

    They do not represent our nation and our people, just their bank accounts at our expense. We are their financial slaves.
