In 2013, I wrote an article to the Guardian which was headlined “Send homeless on a long vacation.” In that letter several important issues were addressed regarding the health, safety and abuse that the law abiding citizens had to encounter on a daily basis from the homeless population.

We can no longer ignore the environmental costs of our economic activity. In fact, we have overlooked this cost for far too long. 

Successive governments have paid mere lip service to the ideas of sustainable development and environmental accounting.

Why the scaremongering from so many in the business community?

That the economic situation is ‘serious’ and it is not temporary?

What an absolute load of crock (trust me I wanted to use harsher words).

Trinidad’s society (as distinct from Tobago’s) is collapsing. There are signs of societal collapse everywhere, and it takes a statesman to publicly recognise this.

Tobago is indeed a wonderful place to spend a vacation and so, nine members of the Sarafat’s family set out in April to enjoy the beautiful ambiance of Crusoe’s isle. All went well as planned, enjoying togetherness with prayer, laughter and fun.

How many times have we read in the newspapers that vastly different sentences were given out by judges and magistrates for what we believe were similar crimes and offences? This includes the very controversial issue of granting bail. Does social class of the offender make a difference?

I refer to Page A18 of the T&T Guardian on April 7, 2016 in an article by Kevon Felmine titled “Worry over mid-term tax increase casino workers fearful of job loses” in which Mr Joshua Johnson, assistant secretary of the Union of Members Club and Lottery Workers is reported to have said “...

Because of the easy access to education now there are those without ambition who do not appreciate that this is the way to succeed in life’s journey to maintain a family and themselves in time to come.
