The Pointe-a-Pierre Wildfowl Trust supports the call of other environmental organisations for the extension of the current moratorium on hunting in Trinidad and Tobago. Read More »

Let’s not shy away from dealing with rape issues

Thanks for publishing the letter from Mr Steve Smith. It was a welcome change from those who continue to wear blinkers and have now started to unhide their true allegiance. Read More »

Dr Rowley making joke with serious business

I am amused at times by the utterances of some politicians. Read More »

Did former AG serve us well?

It is beyond belief that within a five-year period a former attorney general reported to have spent well over $300 million of taxpayers dollars in legal fees, disbursements and costs, hundreds of millions more than any other attorney general office holder discharged in the country’s history.

The good, the bad and the ugly

The history of humankind is replete with stories, revelations, depicting the good, the bad and the ugly side of societies and civilisations. There has always been the tendency, however, for men and women to manipulate thought, word and deed to trumpet the good, disguise the bad, but never to give hint to the ugly aspects of themselves.

Politics, morality and decency

Politics, politicians and the populace of this “developing nation” must step up and demand a higher standard of accountability and professional conduct of our “office holders”. The time has come for all aspiring politicians, parliamentarians and public figures to be vested with national influence and the public purse, open to scrutiny, “pre-assumption”, of such positions.

Public doesn’t always need to know

Mrs Vernella Alleyne-Toppin’s contribution to the motion of no confidence in Dr Keith Rowley as Leader of the Opposition warrants comment. I am truly amazed at the profound bias, the emotion, the gullibility and the extent to which Trinidadians are simply unwilling or indeed unable to ventilate issues through objective and reasoned discourse.

Abuse of House deserves censure, ejection

MRS Alleyne-Toppin’s most vile statement in our Parliament and possibly any parliament in the Commonwealth, has evoked a non-apology from her, which the Prime Minister has accepted (?). As a result the Prime Minister will take no action to remove her from her ministerial office. Read More »

What a burning shame!

Dr Roodal Moonilal was quoted in a newspaper article on March 28 that he was “the one who sanctioned the statement made in Parliament by MP Vernella Alleyne-Toppin during the no-confidence motion against Dr Keith Rowley” and shamelessly boasted that “I am very proud of her, she has risen in my estimation”.

Step in now, Mr President!

Tobago East MP Vernella Alleyne-Toppin’s macabre, disgusting and wholly despicable diatribe in our Parliament last Wednesday (in support of her Government’s ill-conceived motion of no-confidence in the Opposition Leader), was easily, without doubt, the lowest, most disrespectful contribution to the parliamentary record in this nation’s history.

Govt has placed itself in a dark place

This general election has started off in the proverbial gutter with the tactics displayed by the Government. Read More »
