    • LEADERSHIP MATTERS with Gaston Browne at the top;
      Building the Economic Power House, his blind & dumb UPP detractors are unable to stop.
      Gaston is great man with an impeccable vision
      I tip my hat to you Mr Spencer for not following those UPP Jack Asses & opposing the decision.

      • Again, no one opposed the idea of a university.
        Lovell, Jackie and even I are UWI graduates. The problem was/is the location. It would have been better placed in the old Navy Base at the time. That is evident now since the primary school has to be removed to make space and that is just the beginning since the bad drainage situation has not even been looked at yet.
        Besides, if this govt cant even get one single project off the ground, cock will grow teeth before they can build not one but two schools. Thankfully, they would be gone long before that.

  1. Well said sir. This university is for all Antiguans, not just red or blue. On this we are united as one. Good to see it happening.

    • Hmmmmmmm, smh, and all the other pseudonym you use on this site regurgitating the same crap every day, you must be schizophrenic.

      Your post is starting to resemble Russian spam bots, because no real person can be so pathetic posting the same crap morning, noon and night under so many different names.

    • Oh yesssss a big thorn in the haterz baxide!!!

  2. A university of Antigua was first proposed by the UPP, anoth idea stolen by the corrupt ALP. I remember Jackie Quinn and Jono Samuel working on a blue print for it.

    The only objrction was the location.the ALP spinners are really grasping at straws.

    • @Cool Ruler, what the UPP proposed was fundamentally different. Their approach was to establish an independent university, and that was a terrible idea. Most small countries establishing national universities have issues with their degrees being widely accepted, the cost is usually prohibitively high, and national universities tend to have real issues in attracting internationally recognized specialists in their fields.

      The approach used by the ABLP was a smarter one. You tap into an established university that has already solved the issues identified above.

      Oh, and by the way, Lester Bird mooted a university for Antigua before the UPP, and Tim Hector did so before Lester Bird, and V.C. Bird did so before Tim when the Department of Extramural Studies (now UWI Open Campus on Factory Road) was established in the 1960s. What I’m suggesting is that the idea of a university in Antigua is a long, long time story. So no single party can take credit for that. What a party CAN take credit for is actually getting it done, and that party is the ABLP led by Gaston Browne.

      • @Wash.. Yep cause Juno argued publicly UWI was a failed institution that had not served us well, and he set upon reinventing the wheel. Speaking to a few of the members of the committee he headed, they made clear the experience was like spinning mud, with Juno involved. Juno is all chat, a legend in his own mind. Has done nothing but smoke and mirages

        Poor Cool Ruler seems to not know its the ALP in its 2009 manifesto, on pg 8 who pushed the UAB

    • @BITTA COOL RULER UWI FISLANDS WILL FOREVER BE A THORN INNA BITTA #UPPNEGARAH LIKE YOU SIDE AH BAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYπŸ€ͺπŸ€ͺπŸ€ͺ

    • That’s a lie- in 2008 Sir Lester Bird was the 1st one to speak about a University of Antigua and Barbuda then UPP that was in Government tried to hi-jack the idea by forming a do-nothing committee-
      Y’ALL NOT FOOLING NOBODY HERE……
      THE IDEA OF A UNIVERSITY IN ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA WAS THAT OF SIR LESTER BIRD IN 2008 LEADING TO THE 2009 GENERAL ELECTIONS.

    • We have enough of promises that are not fulfilled…. Blueprint is one thing execution is another. If I were you check Gaston how to be man of your words and execute..

  3. This is by no means a curve ball. Spencer realise the worth of education, he now knows the worth of looking at things objectively an not within political lenses. Dem badminded #UPPNEARGA who think differently should seek a cure for their disease. Its it communicable or non cumminicable?

  4. Antigua could be better served at this junturev in time by a technical college similar to UTEC in Jamaica. Uwi five island will continue to produce graduates who have no practical skill to fill present needs

  5. WOOF WOOF WOOF said the barking πŸ• πŸ• πŸ• while the WAGON CONTINUES TO ROLL ON.

    Kudos to the Hon. Michael Browne, Steadroy Benjamin, PM Browne and the Labour Party government 🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩
    Having a VISION is crucial 🎯

    Forward together all πŸ‡¦πŸ‡¬ #EconomicPowerhouse #Transformation

  6. Big up ya self Baldwin Spencer. History will show that you TOOK A STAND FOR COUNTRY instead of cheap, baseless, politics. UPP mad at you for PUBLICLY ENDORSING the ABLP’s VISION, but we the patriots and future generation will remember your ENDORSEMENT
