- There be swift retribution for criminal activity; and, simultaneously,
- There are enticing and productive income-earning alternatives to those involved, or intending to be involved, in criminal activity.
“When the prices fall on these international markets, we expect local prices to also fall but you know there are some unscrupulous businessmen operating in this country... and we may have to use the power of citizens to get our just due.” (Manning) said. (PM: Expect food prices to fall", by Richardson Dhalai, Trinidad Newsday of October 25th 2008.)
"...you know there are some unscrupulous businessmen...";and,
"...we may have to use the power of citizens to get our just due..."?
"In times of uncertainty the last thing that citizens expect of the political directorate is a mixing of signals...".
PRIME MINISTER Patrick Manning yesterday declined a response except to say "I stay away from pedestrian matters."(Cut and pasted from 'I stay away from pedestrian matters': the Trinidad Newsday of October 23, 2008.)
"...The PTSC declined to give an official response to Samuel's killing, but said the incident was just a reflection of the current crime wave facing the country..."
The public, therefore, ought not to fuss about such incidents: just take them in stride; and move on with its "normal" business.
The only other word that matches is the word MoCCAsIN. That also figures, for, through McCain, the GOP wants to continue trampling all over US citizens.
Well, Mr. Manning! Oil price has dipped perilously close to the budgeted price, having fallen to U$71 before swinging up a little, to U$73.
When are you gonna review the Budget? When the foul-looking/smelling stuff hits the fan?
Dear Trinidad Guardian Editor,
Your published report of a burglary at No. 215 Eastern Main Road, Arouca ("Parsanlal's office burgled", penned by GK), is misleading due to its inaccuracy: the burgled premises never have, nor do not, house the office of the Minister, or Ministry, of Information of Trinidad and Tobago; they house the office of the Member of Parliament for Lopinot/Bonair West. All such premises fall under the full purview of the Parliament of Trinidad and Tobago. Therefore, all thereto-related expenses: rent, utilities, furnishings, staff, consumables and maintenance, are met by the Parliament of Trinidad and Tobago.
While one might consider the slip to be a trifling one, it is not, for it conveys the impression that, in Trinidad and Tobago, the Government is the Parliament and, or, vice versa, when it's well-known that such is NOT the case; at least according to the Constitution.
Trinidad and Tobago.

“The executive needs to be reminded that the treatment at the remand yard, Port-of-Spain, cannot continue, not only because it is treatment which is debasing and dehumanising to prisoners and to prisons officers who are duty bound to participate in the process, but because it is treatment which, if after having been exposed, is allowed to continue, threatens to redefine us as a people.”
Stay far, far away from WMDs: they will bring you down!
