Great news for the agricultural sector! I was pleasantly surprised to read in the print media that the Minister of Food Production announced Government’s policy to introduce an agricultural insurance assistance programme for registered farmers. This has been a missing link. It will significantly mitigate risks which are abundant and costly in agriculture...

What would you do if you held an election and nobody came? In many of the polling stations set up for the Congress of the People’s (COP) national executive election held last Sunday, that is almost precisely what happened.

There is a lot of talk nowadays about freedom of the media but I am compelled to ask: is the media really free?

What is the purpose of having branches in South when little is done to cover all the exciting football in southern Trinidad? For years we in the southland have been cheated with all the coverage going up North. I am a regular supporter of college football and a big Intercol fan.

In just over one week football clubs in T&T will vote for a new president and executive of the Trinidad & Tobago Football Federation.

It is widely believed that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. With this truism in mind one wonders at the logic behind the attempts at rebranding of Dr Keith Rowley.

I think that it is time for the citizens of Trinidad and Tobago to demand that our politics be taken to another level.

What a great pity it is that it took a disaster like Hurricane Sandy to cause the president of the United States to declare “No red tape, no bureaucracy—let’s just get it done!” Our Government needs to take a serious look at this and how that same ‘red tape’ has an effect on our daily lives.

The image makeover for Dr Rowley was long overdue. I enjoyed the Michelle Obama-styled entrance at Sunday’s convention in the Savannah. The hype was rewarded with the energetic crowd response.

I am beginning to notice the different turns journalism and un-biased, un-opinionated reporting is taking. There is seldom not one article that does not carry a subliminal, carefully concealed message or opinion that insinuates something to their readers.

Citizens for a Better Trinidad and Tobago (CBTT) believes that much more has to be done to bring all types of crime under control.

The very poor turnout for both the COP internal elections and the recent PNM convention has taken place on the heels of the Section 34 fiasco. These events are living proof of the unsuitability of all of the traditional parties to either run the country or form the opposition.

We can argue that we do not have good government but we can also argue that we never had good government. A few have been voted out after one term and another has been repeatedly voted out.

The image of Dr Keith Rowley is one he bestowed on himself. He was too engrossed in Trinidad and Tobago bacchanal politics. I suggested in an open letter to him a few months ago that he must take the people’s fight to parliament and eliminate these parades, and walks/meetings at high noon.

For some time now I have viewed with increasing concern the dramatic occurrences of irresponsible, mindless acts in our society. The recent reprehensible acts at St Cecilia’s Chapel in Maracas Valley, St Joseph have added to my concern.

It was Dr Eric Eustace Williams who forever and ever described PNM election candidates and parliamentarians as both crapauds and millstones around the people’s necks. And Dr Eric Eustace Williams is the name registered in the Name of Father column of the PNM’s birth certificate, as we know.
