    Regional integration could mean moving to Guyana and Suriname

    CARICOM, as is, is dead. It is going nowhere fast. What with all the animosity, regional tension, economic tension and social tensions, CARICOM as it relates to harmonising and developing relationships throughout the region, is dead. The sad reality is that in spite of our common history and shared...
  • If you’re going to sell yourself, at least be expensive

    Jamaica has been selling off bits and pieces for ages, be it bauxite rights, our port (leased out) or even the sugar belt and Goat Island which has been granted to the Chinese.   This has naturally stirred nationalistic tendencies in us human beings who inhabit this island. We...

    A toast to the trinity who may cause the system to implode

    Donald Trump is in the White House, Marine Le Pen almost secured power in France and Angela Merkel looks like she should take the German federal elections.  All in all, things are looking pretty crappy, and that has me extremely happy. Now, please don’t get it twisted. It’s not that...

    Jamaica can get rid of Classism if….

    Jamaica has a lovely motto ‘Out of many, one people’ which implies that despite our racial differences we have come together in a large melting pot creating the Jamaican culture.This mixed culture provided us with many things such as food, music and dance but this, in many ways, hides...

    Stop Playing Games with Sports

    Jamaicans have a mad passion for sports. Be it the man who plays community football every Sunday, or the woman who goes all out in our local netball leagues, we indulge in sports. Even if we have never played on an actual team or ever kicked a ball, we watch...
