September 2, 2015
Letter: For the sake of La Trinity This election challenges us to dig deep inside our soul and decide if we love our nation more than our political favourite.

Letter: Rowley's band of misfits

September 2, 2015
Letter: Rowley's band of misfits As the nation approaches the historic 2015 General Elections, it is quite evident that the wheels have fallen off the PNM campaign.

Letter: Passports for sale

September 1, 2015
Letter: Passports for sale The word in African and some other developing countries is that you can buy a Vincentian passport for US$75,000 or EC$200,000. Do they come with citizenship certificates? No mention of that by my informant. It’s quite a coincidence that I was investigating some whispers of this matter in the UK.

Letter: Allen Chastanet's 'mongrels' pick a fight with an ex con

August 31, 2015
Letter: Allen Chastanet's 'mongrels' pick a fight with an ex con Words are hard to find to deconstruct the political ‘mamaguy’ in the United Workers Party (UWP), aka Destructive Workers Party (DWP). The return of Rufus Bousquet, aka Bruce Tucker, to politics has outfoxed plenty of political novices. He captured the chairmanship of his former constituency, Choiseul/Saltibus...

Letter: The sweet taste of home

August 29, 2015
Letter: The sweet taste of home Over two years ago, one of our federation's treasures fell victim to the merciless fangs of illness.

He has since lost...

Letter: Trump the loose cannon

August 29, 2015
Letter: Trump the loose cannon Donald Trump should not be a candidate for president of the United States. He is a volatile "loose cannon" who is out of control, and I am not referring to the immigration issue, which has to be addressed by more logical minds. Trump is the personification of a global bully who would try to bully...

Letter: The protection racket forced in the open or police assist lawbreaker to circumvent our laws

August 26, 2015
Letter: The protection racket forced in the open or police assist lawbreaker to circumvent our laws This is not about the people I mention, namely, my driver and Bing Joseph. Nor is it about traffic violations. Nope. None of those. It is about the protection racket that is run by persons with a firm hand on the tiller of justice, who obstruct its course. Sometime last year, my driver was driving my small pickup...

August 25, 2015
Letter: The Venezuelan regime is still the same despotic regime today as it was yesterday Since I last wrote about Venezuela it has got many time worse there.

Letter: Joy riding

August 24, 2015

Letter: Has Ralph Gonsalves got a Potholes Degree (PhD)?

August 21, 2015
Letter: Has Ralph Gonsalves got a Potholes Degree (PhD)? For sure he has not got a proper PhD in law like Senator Lewis, perhaps Gonsalves has a PhD in potholes, because he has overseen the creation of more potholes in SVG than any man before him in the Caribbean, hence ‘Pot hole Degree’ PhD. I am sure the Honourable Dr Lewis having...
