Time to honour our heroes

Written by Wednesday, 15 April 2015 05:10

THE late Robert 'Bob' Yorke rose from humble beginnings to emerge as an impressive role model during a period when many doors were closed to dark-skinned people in Trinidad and Tobago. Bob Yorke not only made his mark in Tobago, but was also able to stand tall in Trinidad where he extended his 'empire'. He also made forays into the wider Caribbean.

Mixed message from Police Service

Written by Wednesday, 15 April 2015 05:09

THE EDITOR:

The reaction of the hierarchy of the Police Service to the finding that the police were acting within their authority to enforce roadblocks around the twin-island republic recently, whilst at the same time refusing to make the results of the investigation public, though indicating that the officers responsible would be duly dealt with, is somewhat puzzling.

Let Vernella’s speech stay

Written by Wednesday, 15 April 2015 05:07

THE EDITOR:

It's not very often I disagree with Senior Counsel Martin Daly, but this morning I had a WTH moment when I read an article stating his point of view that Vernella Alleyne-Toppin’s infamous speech in Parliament ought to be erased from the Hansard. For those who don’t know, the Hansard is an official (but edited) report of what is said in Parliament.

Knowing right from wrong?

I am sure that we are all recovering from the “rest” we got over the past long weekend and could do with another one rather than returning to the normal work week.

Reflections on Bob Yorke – the conclusion

Written by Sunday, 12 April 2015 06:52

I conclude my reflection on the immeasurable Robert T. Yorke. It was from my second ‘formal’ interview for my television series ‘Against All Odds’  in 2011, that I gained a complete  sense of this business tycoon, industrial magnate, master entrepreneur and philanthropist.

The first person I ever heard use the term ‘referendum’ with any commitment attached, was Sheilah Solomon, God rest her soul. She had been trying to get the People’s Partnership out of office, put the power, which she felt had been misused, back in the hands of the people.

The call by Tobago Forwards’ Interim Political leader Christlyn Moore for the Tobago Organisation of the People (TOP), the Independent Liberal Party and The Platform of Truth to join with her party to fight the People’s National Movement (PNM) in Tobago, is the latest confirmation that she and her Tobago Forwards colleagues will continue to be agents of the United National Congress (UNC).
