After listening to the founder of the UNC, Mr Basdeo Panday’s unkind and ungentlemanly remarks on Kamla Persad-Bissessar, the woman who he trained and mentored to be the political animal she is today, I can only conclude that he is jealous of Keith Rowley and Jack Warner.

If you were unsure about this being an election year then you need to hear what the Prime Minister had to say in Diego Martin earlier this week. People who have lived in a government unit will now pay $100 to gain title for their place of occupancy.

On Monday, May 11, 2015, my family remembered our daughter. It’s not that we did not remember her the day before that or even the day before and all the days leading up to that day. We remembered her because we observed the first anniversary of her passing.
