Cautious Optimism

Written by Saturday, 22 November 2014 14:12

“Cautious Optimism” is the phrase that best describes the reaction of Tobagonians to the outcome of the meeting held between the Chief Secretary’s Executive Council and the Prime Minister’s Cabinet.

Can the TOP be put together again?

I was somewhat heartened to learn that there are now moves to resuscitate what is left of the real Tobago Organisation of the People.

The Tobago Council PNM recently submitted this article for publication and wishes to reprint it, in light of the recent meeting with the Chief Secretary and the Prime Minister. The letter outlining the areas of incursions was officially handed to the Prime Minister who then referred the matter to the Attorney General for investigation.

A Question of Illegality....

Orville is that you?

Once upon a time, there lived an extremely intelligent boy in the village of Whim by the name of Orville London. So intelligent and talented was he that he grew in stature rapidly, and by the time he got to his early twenties, he was already a university graduate and became a permanent fixture within the education system.

On Sunday November 16, thousands of PNM supporters will assemble at the Queen’s Park Savannah for the party’s Annual Convention.

The Green Party - is it relevant to Tobago?

I have opted to deal head-on with relevance of the ILP to Tobago and the leadership issue within the ILP which (thank God) has been resolved. As news of the stepping down of Mrs. Lyndira Oudit as Political leader of the ILP began to spread, many persons called me to express their genuine concern.

The Tobago Council of the People’s National Movement views, with interest, the assurance from Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissesar that she “would not condone illegality, as it pertains to the Tobago House of Assembly”.

After a lapse of 15 months and numerous requests from Chief Secretary Orville London, Prime Minister Kamla Persad  Bissesar has finally agreed to meet with the Chief Secretary of the Tobago House of Assembly.

The popular adage which states that “he who has eyes to see, let him see and he who has ears to hear, let him hear”, is becoming more relevant in the politics and management of Tobago everyday.

The Tobago Council of the People’s National Movement commends the Orville London administration in the Tobago House of Assembly for its decision to present another budget to the people of Tobago, after receiving the allocation for the present fiscal year.

I wish to start today’s article by calling on the Hon. Gary Melville, Secretary in the Division of Infrastructure and Public Utilities to emerge from his self-imposed obscurity and perform the duties for which he has been appointed.

Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar has  said that the next general election will not be held before it is due and has even postulated that the election date could be as late as November 2015.

The season of strange bedfellows

Several weeks ago, I wrote an article on the unholy alliance between the present and former Chief Secretaries on the issue of greater autonomy for Tobago.

All Tobagonians should pay close attention to the level and quality of representation which they have received from their parliamentary representatives in the Lower House, over the past 52 months.

What next madam Prime Minister?

I was tempted to title this article “In defence of Dr. Keith Rowley,” however, the more I pondered over the issue, the more I realised that it extends beyond Dr. Rowley.

Within the last three months, thousands of the island’s young people would have either graduated, entered or reentered university and secondary school or are tackling the job market. At this time, most of them are focused on their immediate personal goals, and they should be. Young people, in these dynamic times, must focus on preparing themselves for an unpredictable future in an increasingly competitive environment.
