Ever since the governing Unity Labour Party (ULP) in St Vincent and the Grenadines lost the referendum by a wide margin on November 25 last, the Ralph Gonsalves government has been dubbed a lame duck administration, since it is only marking time and very little is being done in the multi island state. read more...

Among the many areas in need of improvement and maturity among some people, is the ability to fairly debate issues with substance in the arguments. I note with interest the many contributions to the Socialism debate. A class of persons has since emerged to set the “rules” to be followed in this debate. read more...

The defenders of the Unity Labour Party decry everything that criticizes or cast doubts on the direction their party has taken since it began its second term.

Why does Opposition Leader, Mr Arnhim Eustace, go out of his way to prove me right, time and again? I have referred to him as: “An-I'm-Useless”, “Mr Despair” and the worst opposition leader (including Mammy Joshua) SVG has seen in its political history. I have severally opined that this former... read more...

You know this one was coming with the 2010 Vincy Mas around the corner. After my letters entitled, “Spectacles on SVG and Kaiso! Kaiso! Vincy Kaiso!” Of course, like before I have gotten a few too many calls and e-mails asking about something for the 2010 calypsos. It was no surprise... read more...

St Vincent’s tourism industry is poised to suffer major set backs if the current situation in relation to Japanese exploitation of international whale stocks and other endangered species is allowed to escalate. The latest development in this long and well crafted strategy on the part of Japan to hunt whales in... read more...

In all the places I have so far looked the proponents of socialism have a single complexion. They come in the form of National Socialists (Nazis), some in Europe who called themselves Christian Democrat of Northern Europe (Ralph‘s policies do not fit in here) and Marxist-Leninists Socialists. read more...

Congratulations to the people of Trinidad and Tobago. They have elected a new government in office, headed by a brave and powerful woman, Kamla Persad-Bissessar.

In continuing this letter, it is time to expose the head cook and bottle washer. The plain truth is they have failed the people miserably. They have been trying to plant the seeds of dependency on them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Their aim is to make the people of St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG)... read more...

When Ralph Gonsalves began the destruction and decimation of civil society in St Vincent & the Grenadines ten years ago, indeed making St Vincent & the Grenadines ungovernable, Mr Ken Boyea was among those who appeared to decry his tactics and antics. Now a decade later he seemes to be... read more...



Thursday, May 20, 2010

The Prime Minister of St Vincent and the Grenadines has completely lost his way, no doubt because he is being misled by foreign elements. He does not seem to have a mind of his own, hence the reason why he is vacillating, flip flopping. At one time he was not in favour of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ). read more...



Wednesday, May 19, 2010

I am amazed that the so-called progressives in St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) now want to be called intellectuals. However, they are intellectuals to an ideology. May I rephrase that to ideological intellects. The old saying stills holds true today, “beware of wolves in sheep’s clothing.” read more...



Saturday, May 15, 2010

It baffles me why a "impoverished" tiny country like St Vincent and the Grenadines is making a rather bold bid to secure the vacant seat of the 15 member United Nations Security Council. The country's Prime Minister, Ralph Gonsalves, has drained the country of the last ounce, millions of dollars spent on... read more...

Cheddie Jagan left Guyana as a quiet country boy, though very bright, and went to the United States to study dentistry and returned with an American bride, Janet Rosenberg.

Looking back on Ralph Gonsalves’ ascension to power in St Vincent & the Grenadines in 2001, it is now evident that Mr Gonsalves had absolutely no intention of relinquishing that power ever during his lifetime once he had attained it. Moreover, he intended to keep it in his family, extended and otherwise. read more...

Have we as a people examined the human rights situation in Venezuela and Cuba? Are we prepared for that kind of life under serious dictatorship? Are we prepared to give up our birthright for an international airport? I say no way, José, we will not. We are very brilliant people. read more...

All I showed Vincentians before about the socialists’ revolution plans is now being boldly confessed by them. During the referendum I pointed out three dangers: 1. the refusal to put back a phrase in the draft preamble of the new constitution which strengthened its philosophical underpinnings- a phrase that... read more...

Growing up in Bottom-Town I remember the late Skerrit had a saying, “Ah drunk but ah na no fool!” Do these guys think that people in St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) head bad? Maybe during Vincy Mas some of us do get our head bad. But even in such a drunken state we still do have our marbles. read more...

When he was at the top of his game, the wily Ralph E Gonsalves lavished praise on the Vincentian people and as a Vincentian he never failed to grasp an opportunity to do the same unto himself. The year 2004 was a banner year for him. In his words: Our people, purposefully led have done commendably well. read more...

I read an article in the Vincentian newspaper of April 30, 2010, where the Supervision of elections, Miss Sylvia Findlay, stated, “To date I have not held any press conferences, and I do not think I will, I do not trust journalists.” The Supervisor was responding to a question posed at last Saturday’s, April 24th, launch of... read more...

I am tired of hearing about the international airport to be built in St Vincent and the Grenadines. This is just a smoke screen to divert attention of how terrible the financial crisis is in the country. How would the prime minister build an international airport costing millions and millions of dollars when he cannot even... read more...

After reading the article "ALBA agrees to consolidate sovereignty and advance toward socialism, I have to exclaim, "Oh Jesus help us!" Now we can understand why the referendum in St Vincent and the Grenadines was so rushed... Chavez says ALBA's projects and plans cannot wait. read more...

In business we say that the behaviour of employees of a company, the success or failure of the business and how the company is viewed by the public is a function of the tone at the top. The same can be said about the institution of government, since of course the political, social and economic agenda is... read more...

While the prime minister is struggling to manage the financial crisis in St Vincent and the Grenadines, our people are suffering, and the longer he stays in office the harder it will be for the people of our nation.
