    Decisive leadership not impossible, but…

    The building of a nation may not always be a purely objective or even popular subjective voting process (like a referendum), but it does require planning, implementation, and most of all, a leadership that motivates and mobilizes concerted and consistent effort. Leadership requires a special component that enables others...

    By-elections demonstrate the acceptance of the garrison

      “Tis the seasons to be folly, tra la la lee, please elect me!” This is a really special time and after that “only 55 days left for Christmas shopping”. What a bonanza! The by-elections in three constituencies are upon us. Two are non-starters because they are garrisons and...
  • Back to the Future in reality a feeling of déjà vu

    The concept of the future seems designed to eliminate the past and eradicate the use of the euphemism “good old days” that is sometimes anathema to a new generation that cannot comprehend life without every modern convenience. In many ways it can be a blinkered approach to the easily...

    The English language has been the adopted (forced) communication methodology of an enslaved people as Bob Marley said “stolen from Africa, brought to America”.

    The Holness Administration is entering a critical period of its life. Seventeen months into its term in office the Government is being surrounded by increasingly gloomy, if not stormy, political conditions. The honeymoon is over.
