Congratulations, Antiguans! You blew it!

Dear Editor,

Earlier this year, someone said that Antiguans could not run the cruise port.

The words of the letter have not fallen to the ground because guess what? ANOTHER St. Lucian is now the general manager.

We cannot despise Global Ports for this one. They tried. People were given the opportunity of a lifetime.

Some places require you to have your ACCA to be a chief accountant or an MBA to be a human resources manager but at the cruise port, there are people without ONE degree in management. A truly lucky bunch.

But what do you think Antiguans would do with these types of opportunities?

Take these chances to victimize and tear down each other in true garret style.  

Antiguans seem to be almost cursed with a spirit of badmindedness and pettiness that will allow them to go to work and do every and all things… BUT THE WORK!!!

So, here we are again with another St. Lucian showing Antiguans how it’s done.

Global Ports has been in Antigua for almost FIVE years and a noble Antiguan cannot be at the helm. But hey, they tried.

Well, well, well
