    Default PM Baldwin Spencer's gun seized in India

    Mumbai, Jan. 18: Mumbai’s airport officials cannot understand the words “Prime Minister” when pronounced with a West Indian accent.

    Which is why a certain Baldwin Spencer was “apprehended” and questioned yesterday after customs found a revolver in his baggage.

    It needed half an hour of grilling for the officials to realise that Spencer was the Prime Minister of Antigua and, as a head of state, was exempt from baggage checks.

    So the question is why is a Prime Minister of all people travelling with a concealed weapon? Who was he gonna gun but and rob?

    As a leader of any country, I don't think it's unusual for them to carry around any "protective" weapons...At least on the body guards.

    Where in the article did it say that he could not speak English or that he could not pronounce his words properly? The man has an accent typical of where he is from. The Indians have their own accent and languages. The fact that they had difficulty understanding him should not be surprising, nor is it really anyone's fault. Be reasonable.
    Working for a better future.
