Letter: The messianic complex

March 28, 2015
Letter: The messianic complex A person cannot say something unless it is in their head. It is a physical and mental impossibility. Also, you can tell what somebody it thinking as much by what they say, as they don’t. I knew where Ralph was coming from – or wanted us to go – when he said that Saboto Caesar...

Letter: Isn't it time to control our Caribbean media?

March 28, 2015
Letter: Isn't it time to control our Caribbean media? For the last few years the comrades who have bravely taken us into the midst of the Caribbean social revolution ‘ALBA’ have worked diligently to try and get some semblance of control over the media. There has been a continual onslaught against them which has almost certainly damaged the...

Letter: Airport envy Vincie-style

March 26, 2015
Letter: Airport envy Vincie-style I have already suggested that, if Argyle International Airport (AIA) brings in 21,000 more visitors five years after its completion, this would be both a miraculous achievement and an unmitigated disaster. This is because, even with this highly optimistic estimate, there would be an unsupportable...

Letter: Big people parties, poor people tune

March 26, 2015
Letter: Big people parties, poor people tune The 2015 election season in Trinidad and Tobago is now lukewarm, with every sector and interest adding their tune to the symphony that will soon enough pronounce or denounce a government. The chorale includes, but is not limited to police and pipers, captains and crooks, as well as those...

Letter: Arley Gill on Venezuela

March 25, 2015
Letter: Arley Gill on Venezuela Arley Gill's quite balanced article on US foreign policy rightly asserted that the timing of Obama's announcement that Venezuela under its present regime constitutes a threat to the security of the US could hardly be more clumsy, in view of currently improving relations between the US and Cuba.

This is an increase of 91,625 electors.

Letter: Allen Chastanet and Kenny Anthony threaten St Lucia's democracy

March 24, 2015
Letter: Allen Chastanet and Kenny Anthony threaten St Lucia's democracy The season of Lent is cause for much reflection and abstinence. In essence, I would have liked to refrain from politics but, as Christ evangelized the gospel for our redemption, I am sure he can understand the need to do the same for the removal of both aristocrats Allen Chastanet and Kenny Anthony...

Open Letter: Repair the damage, stop false images!

March 24, 2015
During the House of Parliament debate on the estimates on March 17 our Prime Minister Stuart acknowledged that “poverty cannot be eradicated in a capitalist country.” He said we can speak of alleviating poverty but not eradicating it. On Sunday, March 22, the prime minister made public...

Letter: Turks and Caicos Integrity Commission compromised?

March 23, 2015
Letter: Turks and Caicos Integrity Commission compromised? It is a fact that Eugene Otuonye, the head of the Turks and Caicos Islands Integrity Commission, was also on Governor Gordon Wetherell’s Advisory Council and was personally present when the Advisory Council voted and approved the freehold grant of Crown land at the Providenciales Airport.

Letter: The hate, bitterness, acrimony, animosity and a man completely out of control

March 23, 2015
Letter: The hate, bitterness, acrimony, animosity and a man completely out of control This week, the political diary in Trinidad and Tobago has been dominated by the outburst of vulgarity and obscenity coming from the lips of the political leader of the PNM, Dr Keith Rowley at two public meetings, the first in Marabella and other in Talparo. The audio and video recordings...

Letter: Sod the Vincentian constitution

March 21, 2015
Letter: Sod the Vincentian constitution In most decent Vincentians’ eyes that declaration would be little more than blasphemy. But in the eyes of the ruling ULP government it may well be a government policy. The constitution overrides any laws that are made that contradict the constitution; the constitution is what...

Letter: Roosevelt Skerrit

March 21, 2015

Letter: I hope Ralph Gonsalves is able to finish the work of Maurice Bishop

March 20, 2015
Letter: I hope Ralph Gonsalves is able to finish the work of Maurice Bishop They say that history has a habit of repeating itself. But if we look closely at our Caribbean past, it resembles a repeat but not quite, in fact some would like to say “not at all”. Ralph E. Gonsalves is a Caribbean leader who stands in the shadow of his idol, Fidel Castro.

Letter: The ALBA ambassadors in Cuba made an admission of revolution in the Caribbean

March 19, 2015
Letter: The ALBA ambassadors in Cuba made an admission of revolution in the Caribbean The latest news coming from Havana, Cuba, came as no surprise to me.

March 18, 2015
Letter: Ken Boyea and the Phantom City at Arnos Vale Ormiston "Ken" Boyea's economic difficulties are a stark and painful reminder of the empty promises made by the Unity Labour Party (ULP) and its leader, the Honourable Dr Ralph E.

Letter: You've got to be kidding II

March 17, 2015
Letter: You've got to be kidding II Here we go again! Talk about more nonsense at the Argyle International Airport (AIA) in St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG). The Unity Labour Party (ULP) government has continued to appeal to citizens to contribute to the AIA Fund. But they have upped the ante because of the plan...

Letter: When you lie to business investors you must be prepared to 'own the lies' when all goes wrong

March 16, 2015
Letter: When you lie to business investors you must be prepared to 'own the lies' when all goes wrong When Ralph Gonsalves announced the finish and operational dates for the Argyle International Airport, we must ask ourselves if he knew each of those dates were unachievable. I like many others believe he did know that the completion dates he gave us were not just unachievable, such statements...

Open Letter: Victimization at Sandy Island Oyster Bed Marine Protected Area

March 16, 2015

Letter: Games continue over investigation into Turks and Caicos hospital contract

March 14, 2015
Letter: Games continue over investigation into Turks and Caicos hospital contract It is very bizarre that it is only the Peoples Democratic Movement (PDM) opposition that’s carrying the ball on this absolutely critically needed investigation into the Turks and Caicos Islands hospital contract. Now the public is learning three months after the motion to investigate was passed...

Letter: Who is the very senior UNC and PPG official to be arrested by the TTPS?

March 14, 2015
Letter: Who is the very senior UNC and PPG official to be arrested by the TTPS? Very reliable and credible sources are saying that the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) is in full gear to re-enact another July 14, 2006, scenario when police unsuccessfully attempted to arrest then Chief Justice Sat Sharma at his home.
