For years I’ve heard talk about how unprofitable the International Soca Monarch was. I’ve never heard anything of the like about the Chutney Soca Monarch, but it does make sense to hear that it is/was in the same position.

Good governance is reflected by the conduct and positive outlook on life held by a country’s citizens.

We can all agree that Christmas 2017 in T&T brought some unseasonably rainy weather. It is most definitely the signs of global warning.

I guess we can blame it on the recession. I make reference to our flood victims who continue to suffer. Where is that long promised help? You can hear the cry of those who have become used to losing everything when there is a heavy downpour of rain.

Again, another embarrassing series for West Indies cricket, this time in New Zealand where we were badly beaten in every format.

I now have to ask, in the modern game, what is the relevance of our existing domestic first class competition?

During this last visit to Trinidad, I had the wonderful fortune of visiting Toco for the first time. One of the places that I visited was Galera Park that houses the lighthouse which I was told was named for the Olympian Keshorn Walcott.

Years ago the Mighty Chalkdust told us through kaiso “White people laughing at we” when we mindlessly ape the dress, mannerisms and institutions left behind when colonial rule supposedly retreated.

We go to Tobago for a few prime ministers. We go to Tobago for the odd President or so. We go to Tobago when we want a holiday. When we looking for trouble, we even also head straight for Tobago. What do Tobagonians come to Trinidad looking for?

As we begin a new year, it’s time for resolutions for 2018. One of my resolutions is to give the Police Service some encouragement to do better.

The Minister of Housing has put forward a plan to reduce or eliminate the waiting list of 170,000 persons “asking” for a house from the government and the people of T&T. One aspect of this plan is to give 1,000 individuals a lot of land at a reduced price of 30 per cent of the market value...

I refer to a recent statement made by Opposition Leader Mrs Kamla Persad-Bissessar “Only the UNC can move TT forward”. This statement is baseless and could not be further from the truth.

Once again the issue of fireworks has raised its ugly and uncontrolled head! Indeed, I have had several pieces of debris landing on the roof of my relatively modest house and, I feel sure that many other residents have been similarly affected.

I am in full agreement with those who believe 2018 will be another difficult year in Trinidad and Tobago’s social, economic and political life. When I look at all that has happened in these areas in 2017, coupled with crime and high prices, I am not feeling Trinbago is in a safe place.

Sometimes I can’t help but observe in my doing, then write about it. My intent was not to work with SEA students but I was able to fit two into my schedule.

It is no wonder that people reluctantly change in T&T. The populace is given daily proof of this by way of the behaviours of those who find themselves in positions of influence and who are allowed space in the media.
