Antigua PM Unaware Talks On Sale Of LIAT Shares Have Stalled

Antigua and Barbuda’s Prime Minister Gaston Browne has said that he is not aware that negotiations on the sale of LIAT shares owned by Barbados have stalled, it has been reported.

 “Not to my knowledge,”Browne was quoted as saying in a WhatsApp message  to the Caribbean Media Corporation (CMC).

But he is reported to have said that he was not at liberty to discuss details of a counter offer made by his country.

According to Barbados Today, Antigua and Barbuda is seeking to become the largest shareholder government of cash-strapped LIAT and is in negotiations with Barbados to acquire most of that country’s shareholding in the Antigua-based airline.

The other shareholders are Dominica, St Vincent and the Grenadines and Grenada.

Barbados Today said that local media reports had suggested that the talks between Barbados and Antigua and Barbuda on the sale of LIAT shares which began a week ago, had broken down after only “a few hours”.

Saint Lucia’s Prime Minister Allen Chastanet has  consistently made it clear that his administration will not support the regional carrier, if there continues to be ‘business as usual’.

“There are other airlines – if in fact LIAT were to shut its doors; that they would be  willing to step in and  to be able make up the difference – and maybe that’s what we need. We need a fresh start,” the Saint Lucia PM told reporters at an impromptu news conference here in April this year.


  1. Not related to the story above but I feel compelled to post the following here:
    SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Puerto Rico’s Gov. Ricardo Rosselló announced Saturday that his chief financial officer and secretary of state will step down following their participation in a private chat that used profanities to describe an ex-New York City official and a federal control board overseeing the island’s finances.
    Castries, St.Lucia – St. Lucía’s Prime Minister was very concerned about the origin of an audio of the voice of the former Minister of the Public Service Ubaldus Raymond. The audio related to the Minister making insulting remarks about Public Servants.
    Analysis -The Governor concerned about the remarks. PM Chastanet concerned about how the tapes got leaked.

    By the way, is the investigation still on?

    I Proclaim on the rooftops that the “King is coming to redeem the earth of its curse.”! I announce to the ends of the earth, that the “King is coming”. And that the days of Noah are here. “Prepare ye the way of the Lord and make straight his paths.” Tell all the world that I am coming back soon. “I am coming for those who have laid their burdens down”. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray, Amen.
    The father says: What will you say? You have refused to show mercy to my people, you have refused to give as I have instructed. You are sowing unrighteous seeds that will bring a harvest you will not want, my children. That which I instruct you to do is for your benefit, though it may not seem so at the time. I am a righteous judge and I come to judge all the earth. You are called by my name and I am bound to show you how you err even now. Do you not know these things bring a harvest into your life? Do you not know you create a lack for yourself when you do this? When you do not show mercy, mercy is not shown to you. If you do not give in the time of need, it shall not be given to you. Every action and inaction have a consequence. Do you think you are above this because you are mine?
    Repent and obey. In your thoughts, you believe you live for me in all areas, but there are areas you have not surrendered. I will shine my glorious light on these areas that you may see what is hidden and relinquish it. Surrender every area to me, that I may wash you and make you clean. The results of righteous living are great peace and blessing such as you have never known. As you allow me to remove the barriers, your focus on me will grow clearer and you will enter into my presence more easily. My children, I desire you will prepare now for the end. The signs are all around you, all of heaven is preparing for your arrival here and for my return there to get you, but many you know will be left behind. Many you know are still lost and I desire to save them, I desire you cry out to me for these lost souls as well as those you do not know, and I will answer you. I desire you would cry out for the souls of those who have come against you in the earth, that you would pray for your enemies, for this pleases me greatly.

    God the Father, the Great King wants his name to be promoted in the four corners of the earth. Repent now; get baptized and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, those of you who are in the valley of decision. Do not procrastinate any longer but go ahead and choose God, for when the door and the books are closed no one will be able to enter in. God is sending warnings after warnings. We are in the End Times and he does not want ANYONE to Perish. Time is running out, get saved now while you have time. He is the only way to salvation. Amend your ways and you will be allowed to remain in the land. Let those who have ears to hear and those who have eyes to see. Repent now! Remain strong, be bold, courageous and steadfast in your faith.
    The Lord is saying that: there are people in the churches, in the pulpits, the choir, the church boards, (church in general), who claim to know him but do not have a personal relationship with him, his spirit does not dwell in their hearts and they need to learn how to build a relationship with him, so he can dwell in their hearts. Repent now, pray without ceasing, read his word daily and speak to him as your best friend or father. Do not hesitate to do this as his judgments have already begun. The end of everything has begun.
    Credit to Brother Shomrim, may God bless and protect you my, brother.
