The struggle for internal self-government

Written by Wednesday, 29 October 2014 00:03

QUESTION: What brought you to Tobago and what are your impressions of the island?

Well, we had a cheap first class ticket, then we decided to see where we could go and we saw Trinidad and Tobago.

Tobago is great; it has extremely friendly people and the people are not trying to sell us anything. Other places we have gone, the people are always trying to sell you something.
