Political (123)

The next two months are going to be critical in the development of this island and it’s people. On Wednesday,  a team representing the Tobago House of Assembly and the Forum of Political Parties will meet with a Central Government team to discuss and, hopefully, reach some consensus on the issue of self government for Tobago.

When I read and saw on my television how the Secretary in the Division of Infrastructure and Public Utilities, Gary Melville attributed the $86 Million “secured” for road paving to the shrewd financial management of the Executive Council, I immediately said to myself that his time in “exile” recently did very little to bring him closer to reality.

Events over the past two weeks have fuelled hope that the long journey towards self government for Tobago is closer to the final destination.

ALL Tobagonians must pay close attention to events at the national level and their impact on their quality of life and the quality of governance in this island and this country.

As I watched the Prime Minister as she demolished the character of witnesses to alleged crimes that were committed by members of her government, and as I listened as she removed Ministers left, right and centre (including the only Tobago Government voice in the Senate), I must confess that I felt a little bad for my good friend and leader of the Tobago Organisation of the People (TOP).

On Wednesday January 21, members and supporters of the People’s National Movement gathered at the Scarborough Esplanade for an evening of praise and thanks.

I actually smiled when I saw the headline news and the People Meter Question on Thursday 15th January 2015.

Contrary to popular belief, the practice of politics is not exclusive to politicians like myself.

2015 General Elections and ‘Emailgate’

Written by Saturday, 17 January 2015 15:50

For some unknown reason, I have started thinking seriously whether there should be General Elections in this country before the truth behind ‘Emailgate’ unfolds. 

There are men who walk the earth quietly, unobtrusively, almost diffidently, but still succeed in leaving deep and lasting footprints.

Please stop insulting Mr. Robinson - part 2

I feel compelled to continue from where I left off since my research into the so-called “Robinson Event” uncovered some troubling issues.

On November 2nd the Tobago Council PNM wrote an article (A Question of Illegality) concerning the commitment  from Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissesar to investigate incursions by the Ministry of Tobago Development and other areas impacting Tobagonians.
