Letter: Diaspora voting rights is a direct challenge to the last bastion of colonial rule in Jamaica

February 2, 2017
Letter: Diaspora voting rights is a direct challenge to the last bastion of colonial rule in Jamaica It is indeed one step closer to complete freedom of the Jamaican people – the unshackling of last vestige of slavery; a direct challenge to the ruling class who have openly opposed ordinary Jamaicans gaining significant political and economic power. If you agree with me that, ever since independence...

Letter: Pain

February 1, 2017
Letter: Pain It is painful to see what has become of Trinidad and Tobago. Fifty murders and counting in January alone and there is no positive word from those elected to serve us.

Letter: Our Hobson's choice

January 31, 2017
Letter: Our Hobson's choice You know the saying about the “shitty end of the stick”. Well, both of ours ends are. From Arnhim to Godwin is, as another saying goes, from the frying pan into the fire. After – and during – 11 years of the ULP squeezing and wringing dry every drop of juice, every plot of political subterfuge that they could...

Letter: The CBI Programme - A cessation demand to the president of Dominica

January 31, 2017
Now more than ever since 1979, the potential for far-reaching social and political upheaval has never been greater. The ruling political establishment of Dominica has become so entangled in the international web of intrigue and obscure dealing, that it is even hard for them...

Letter: Crippling fear

January 30, 2017

Citizens fear criminals...

Letter: The attorney general is right: The PPP politicized the Guyana judiciary into dysfunction

January 28, 2017
Letter: The attorney general is right: The PPP politicized the Guyana judiciary into dysfunction Guyana’s attorney general, Basil Williams, has forcefully articulated how successive PPP administrations calculatedly politicized Guyana’s judiciary into dysfunction. Alarmingly, the dysfunction to which he alluded, potentially predeterminedly obstructed the course of justice.

Letter: Petrotrin and its money

January 27, 2017
Letter: Petrotrin and its money I grew up next to Petrotrin, then called Texaco. Up a muddy bullcart track, up and down a hill, and we were at the Barrier. It was a Barrier because it prevented you from entering. But my father said “chu pool”, to hell with that. At night, we ducked through a tunnel; passed a pasture of pangola and...

Letter: Solutions - Crime

January 26, 2017

Letter: Will it be a robot or a person?

January 24, 2017
Letter: Will it be a robot or a person? I heard a very interesting news item on the BBC sometime ago.
