In a few days we will elect a government that will be in power for five years. It will affect our lives in fundamental and critical ways. We hope it will be a good or better government, but voting alone and hoping do not necessarily make it so.

I was very pleased to know that Jack Warner is going up for election in my area. In Munroe Road there are three cricket clubs and three cricket grounds. Our club, Munroe Road Muslim Youths, has been in existence for over 45 years.

The “who presented the better Manifesto 2015” competition is on. Dr Moonilal’s reaction to the People’s National Movement manifesto immediately conveyed the impression that it was miles ahead of the Kamla 2015 effort. He was so furious, even his hair seemed to curl.

I observed that members of the PNM were protesting against the relocation of the fire station from Green Street, Arima to the O’meara Industrial Estate, Malabar. On closer examination of the genesis of the relocation plan, it is clear that it was in fact the PNM who was responsible for it.

I must express my surprise and disapproval at the proposal outlined in the much anticipated PNM manifesto. Having been in opposition for five years one would have thought there was adequate time to prepare in-depth policies and ideas to excite the voting population.

The presentation of the PNM manifesto has raised more questions than providing answers. It’s accepted as axiomatic that the CEO of any organisation presents important policy decision and not the second in command.

I thought that we were having an environmentally clean 2015 election campaign until I woke up yesterday morning and went out to the Eastern Main Road.

The Women’s Institute for Alternative Development (WINAD) stands in solidarity with the 200-plus workers of Hearty Foods Supermarket, many of them women.

Word is that the PM intends to raise the retirement age to 65 years. I accepted that with some mixed emotions. The evidence suggests that many retirees get sick or die very early into their much-earned retirement at 60 years.

The undecided voters in the upcoming general elections are eager to see or grasp at every piece of additional information that will help them decide to support one party or the other.

We spent Sunday morning carefully observing wildlife in Chaguaramas, all the while grieving their impending demise under Dr Bhoe Tewarie’s leadership as minister.

There is a concept called “overkill” which is what caused the governing party to lose at least two elections—Chaguanas West and Tobago House of Assembly. The UNC has long passed the stage of overkill, fully three weeks before the elections.

I have this sickening feeling most media houses are straining to portray T&T as a sick society. Day in, day out, night after night, the stuff chosen to headline prime time news is so gory, it’s possible Hollywood’s Sam Peckinpah is the one writing the scripts. If stomach-churning happenings...

Madam PM, firstly, congratulations on being the first elected female Prime Minister. Even the great USA has not had that distinction as yet and, the way things are going, might have to wait a while longer.
