Abusing Parliament with weapon of rape

When Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar stated she was to “unleash the dogs of war”, few would have thought she was referring to Mrs Vernella Alleyne-Toppin (“Rowley a child of rape”, Express, March 25), and even fewer would have countenanced something as serious as rape would be used so flippantly and maliciously, in an attempt to impugn the character of a fellow MP and Leader of the Opposition.

The day I was hurt deep inside

Like all batsmen, Ramdin has weaknesses. The one that does him in most often is his apparent inability to deal with the fast inswinger pitched just outside off-stump. Read More »

A deliberate act to create chaos and confusion

There was near universal outrage at Satnarine Maharaj’s recent suggestion that there are deliberate attempts at sabotage in the country’s public sector. Read More »

Oppose the no-confidence motion; just stay away

So the Government is all set to employ valuable parliamentary time and resources to peddle its no-confidence motion in the Opposition Leader. Read More »

We need new leaders for a better country

We all know that the doctor of a cat is a vet and the doctor of a “cyat” is a gynaecologist. Let’s not play games or innocence here. Read More »
