It always amazes me that every time a song ridicules the Chinese community, it is acceptable and seen as comical.

Now I am taking a risk writing to the media to talk about the media but this is my attempt at seeing if the media have an agenda or are as transparent as many media houses claim to be.

I am not in support of any of the nominees for the position of President of the Republic. Why is it necessary for us to have an appointed Head of State? We are now 55 years Independent and 41 years as a Republic but it would seem that the colonials are still very present.

Being a leader on any stage demands that you step up your game. Why? You are now on centre stage and all eyes are upon you. This goes with the territory and you cannot escape it, hence the reason why you always have to be on the alert and give a good account by the way you conduct yourself.

The new accessible pedestrian crossing aids on traffic lights for persons with disabilities is definitely most welcome! It certainly gets us one step closer to attaining first world status and moving away from the stigmatisation of persons with disabilities locally.

The latest outcome of the Trinidadian-styled email-gate affair now calls for an urgent review of a sacred right of Parliamentarians—parliamentary privilege.

It is recently reported in the media that the TTPS found nothing of substance after its investigation.

A sad day has dawned in West Indies cricket. WI have lost our way and as a Caribbean people and WI don’t know how to find it once more.
