Citizens of this country, probably numbering about 50, are engaged in the Middle East conflict. They are actively involved as combatants on the side of Islamic State (or ISIS/ISIL).

It is this reality, more than the co-sponsorship of a United Nations resolution on global terrorism by T&T, which has now effectively linked this country to...

I would like to suggest that the Government establish a fund from which each bandleader can be reimbursed the financial cost incurred if Carnival is cancelled. They can use the money to settle any and all liabilities to date. 

Even if feters, artistes, masqueraders, vendors and spectators were dropping like chemically sprayed flies, the mass of stupid people that comprise this nation of T&T would demand that the 2015 Carnival sex orgy go on as scheduled. 

The New York and Canada-based family of Dr Sylvia Moodie-Kublalsingh would like to express our full support for her call for reason to prevail in the matter of Wayne Kublalsingh’s hunger strike.

“What is life worth living?” Ernest Hemingway said, “The world breaks everyone…those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially.”  This quote came to my mind as I reflected on the impending fate of Dr Kublalsingh.

Your citizens living in the USA  who are heading to join Isis are of “concern” and “interest” to you.  What concerns many of your citizens living in T&T, however, is the fact that you will not mediate between the Prime Minister and  a citizen sitting right outside her office every day.  

I sincerely ask that our Prime Minister look with compassion and understanding on Dr Kublalsingh’s request for an urgent meeting with her on the  highway. I am a descendant of Elise Mondesir (my great-grandmother) and the Prime Minister may know my relatives the Saneys, Newallos and Leibas from S

Citizens are usually sceptical about politicians and their pronouncements. Consequently, it is not uncommon for politicians in and out of government to stretch the truth a bit for political mileage.

Dear Wayne, 

As you enter day 26 of your historic and noble fast, your neighbours and fellow residents of La Florissante, D’Abadie, and environs for over 30 years, would just like to publicly let you know that we love and care about you dearly.

Fellow Trinbagonians, your nation is facing a dire crisis and needs you now. We have a lot to be proud of but at this time we are on the brink of being shamed globally. 

An official of the Ministry of Health is reported to have indicated that T&T is “70 per cent ready” with respect to the threat from the Ebola virus.

Mr Griffith is certainly supplementing the belief that this is a lawless country similar to the Wild West in bygone days, by introducing bounties for information on the whereabouts of lawless citizens. Rewards are a good idea but why wasn’t it introduced before to try to bring criminals the justi

I have followed the case of Dr Kublalsingh’s proposals for the Point Fortin Highway over the last month. I have listened to the views of several people and organisations. It seems that some are disrespectful to the Hon Prime Minister and some are only politicking.

Kublalsingh would do well to disassociate himself with the political grasshoppers now swarming around him for any publicity they can get, unless of course this is all part of a bigger plan.

As a citizen of T&T I will not allow this opportunity to slip by in light the direction in which our society is heading.

As I view  images of environmentalist Dr Wayne Kublalsingh becoming more emaciated with each passing day, I am saddened and admittedly afraid that this patriot, who is simply requesting that an earlier promise by the PM to abide by the findings of the Armstrong Committee Report on a feasibility s
