Legal letter to Price an abuse of office

“Reema vs Rachel” is truly an unfortunate turn of events. Honestly, I found Mrs C­amona’s choice of outfit for the United Nation’s function for first ladies unfortunate. Read More »

Govt, Highway Re-Route Movement should talk

A certain religious writer once stated man’s inhumanity to man is the worst sin among us. It is very cruel to contemplate and implement that which causes pain to fellow human beings. Actions like these should have no place in civil society. What is worse is to behave as though those who are adversely affected should stand by, do or say nothing, and even support it in the name of progress. Read More »

Police and importers, let’s enforce the ban on scratch bombs

I would like to know if scratch bombs and similar-type products are still indeed illegal? All indications are no. Every year the complaints are the same for Divali, Christmas and New Year’s. Read More »

Devastating floods in 2014?

As I looked at television coverage of the Fyzabad and Siparia communities ravaged by floods on Thursday, I asked myself: is this the year 2014? Read More »

Have respect for the Office of the President

I have observed with growing interest the comments and reactions surrounding the pre-action protocol letter sent by the attorney(s) representing the President of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, Anthony Carmona, to Rachel Price in respect of derogatory and defamatory comments made by Price regarding Ms Carmona’s mode and choice of dress.

Are we awake to the real scandals at hand?

I have watched a man die for 34 days for a cause he believes in. Minute by minute the media parades the decline of his body but, to this day, has never showed us the actual route in contention. Read More »

...Replace the administrators

The present stalemate in WI cricket is not good for anyone and calls for immediate action. Without going into the ins and outs (mostly outs) of how we got here, it seems we have two intractable groups—the players playing cricket (most of the time), and the administrators playing chess (all of the time).

Sanction WI players for India fiasco

It is my fervent hope that each and every West Indian cricketer involved in that most sordid exit from the recent Indian tour receives the appropriate sanction for their actions. At a minimum, all players should be banned for two years from all forms of local, regional and international cricket. Read More »

Casting doubt on Kublalsingh’s survivability

In the space this format allows me, I would like to focus on two categories of “sceptics” and their responses to Dr Wayne Kublalsingh’s 30-day-plus fast without the expected result. First, there are the genuine doubters who from their human understanding of physical survival are understandably sceptical about Kublalsingh’s ability to survive after such a long period without food and drink.

Remembering Neville Phipps...fine player, fine person

On the passing of Neville Phipps, I write to pay tribute to a fine table tennis player and good human being. I learnt of Neville’s passing through a call from Carl Thorpe in Canada, who had a call from Frank Watson in Trinidad. I am sure others still around from that time will be in sympathy. Read More »

Focus more on Divali’s message

Now, more than ever, Trinidad and Tobago needs to understand the message of Divali. It is not just a physical lighting of deyas to symbolise the victory of light over darkness or good over evil. We must understand at a deeper level that this light of God comes from within each of us and we have the power and means to defeat our own perverted, egoistic and evil desires. Only when we find peace within ourselves can we spread it to our families, then villages and towns, then country. Read More »

Fix blood bank

I read in your newspaper that Health Minister Dr Fuad Khan has said we need a drive to collect blood at the blood bank. He did admit the blood bank was “Not up to par”. Read More »

Demanding more wages unscrupulous, unpatriotic

It is unimaginable a trade union delegate is demanding nurses and doctors be paid four times their normal wage when treating Ebola victims. We can understand maximum life insurance, but the logic of increased wages when doing one’s job rubs us the wrong way. Read More »
