Paying It All Back
Why would you buy back land that you already own? This is the offer on the table from Gaston Browne - $1 for a title deed to land that is worth $$$millions. Of course if you are from Antigua, Jamaica, Dominica, Guyana, the USA, UK or any of our other friends and neighbours living on Barbuda you can see the appeal - wait long enough and you will get what you waited for. If you vote for the right people of course they will always promise you this kind of prosperity. That 'personal gift' of cash you get at election time to bring it home for them is part of the deal. And Barbudans inevitably fall for it too - don't build a stronger house; have a much bigger Caribana!
But now you know - if you want your home rebuilt after a hurricane, you're gonna have to pay it all back to those Antiguan government ministers and their poodles in Barbuda first.
