Way to go villagers of Springvale, who when confronted with marauding bandits, gave them a dose of their own medicine. Oh my God, for how long will we, the unarmed citizenry, be at the mercy of these crazed cowards, who feel that because they have a gun in hand and a jockey shorts around their face, they can do what they want.

On April 21, 2016, the European Commission in Brussels issued a “yellow card” to T&T, who they have labelled as “uncooperative in the fight against illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing.”

This international warning is an global embarrassment for our beleaguered nation.

It is indeed regrettable that Dr Terrence Farrell, chairman of the Economic Development Advisory Board, should have berated the trade union movement with the “gimme gimme” remarks, since they are hardly conducive to the establishment of a mutually respectful tripartite relationship that the...

Jamaica Gleaner—The war between Caricom and the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) is clearly not going to be over anytime soon. Or should it be, more appropriately, the war between Grenadian Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell and Dave Cameron?

Since the mid-year adjustment of the T&T Budget the people of this country have been complaining about the high prices of foodstuffs and other essentials.

We have been hearing so often of public servants, bank workers and other employees of different organisations, treating especially the elderly and the disabled with disrespect, disdain and indifference whenever their services are sought.

Well known Trinidadian novelist Samuel Selvon wrote in The Plains of Caroni, “Negroes and Indians alike sang calypsoes and beat bottle and spoon.”

It is important that things are placed in the right perspective and that those who do not know must remain silent until the facts are revealed. For starters, I am not too sure why Mr Brian Lewis of the T&T Olympic Committee is making comments at this time.

A conspiracy theorist would say that there was a plan afoot (from day one) not to have Thema Williams represent T&T at the Rio Olympics. The hullabaloo about briefly-shown photos on the Internet of both Marisa Dick and Thema Williams less than fully clothed, nixed that particular avenue.

Would it not have been more prudent if the Government came to the public and say, for example, we are currently subsidising super gasoline by 15 per cent but we would like to remove this subsidy in a planned way.

I distinctly remember the furore over Dr Rowley’s utterances that some school children were “monsters” and “hyenas.” The Prime Minister was chastised for his choice of words and some even said he was being insensitive.

Now that the heady euphoria of our World T20 victories is waning, West Indians might be inclined to be more realistic about the state of WI cricket.

On Monday April 18, 2016 I attended a town meeting at the Techier Village Point Fortin Community Centre. It was put on by the South Western Division of the police service. This meeting was well attended by the residents and it turned out to be well-participated in.

It is very sad to see the financial state of our present economy in our beloved sweet T&T.
