  • The Government we deserve

        Do people get the leaders they deserve? Does a joke country need a joke leadership? I lean towards not believing that. I like to believe that circumstances beyond the control of people often times lead to bad/joke leaders running a country. There are times, however, when I...
  • This certainly is not a people’s budget

    The reading and debating of this year’s budget have been interesting in quite a few areas. First of all it is interesting to note that the Government has indeed managed to maintain a budget roughly in line with previous years. This shows fiscal discipline — something which the Fiscal...
  • Either tackle the issues of race and class, or shut up, Mr Politician

      Recently, during the heat of the Portland Eastern by-election campaign the People’s National Party (PNP) candidate, Mr Damion Crawford, raised the issues of both class and race, while also making an ass of himself as it relates to gender. True to form, seemingly the entire nation has taken...

    A difficult job for Peter Phillips

    Dr Peter Philips, Mr dependable, the man who has shone in every Cabinet position he has held, has always been a capable pair of hands in which a problem can be placed. He has, in the past, shown that he is more than flexible and able to think outside...
