It’s refreshing to hear the PM speak so candidly about the recent Immigration fiasco. His words sum up what many ordinary citizens are thinking and hopefully the message will be understood, so we’ll never have a repeat of this.

I read that the Prime Minister was annoyed and that he has said that civil servants should not hold the country to ransom.

The beautiful island of Tobago this week recorded murder No. 10 and the records will show that 2017 has seen the highest amount of murders in history on that island. Yes, sweet Tobago, our little paradise.

T&T cannot and will not be held to ransom. The minority will not inconvenience the majority. No how, no way.

Among the crowd on Sunday were the very young, the sick and the elderly. But then again, does anyone care once it is not impacting on them?

That a comprehensive education for all citizens is a Peoples National Movement idea cannot be disputed. It is part of national history. What could not be conceived was that the idea would now, in the year 2017, hit the snag of not being 100 per cent sustainable.

I would like to ask the management of National Flour Mills to review the situation with regard to their delivery entrance which is just before the St Christopher’s Gas Station on Wrightson Road in Port-of-Spain.

Hats off to the HDC for finally coming around to the realisation that it will be almost impossible to meet the growing demand for affordable housing with a ballooning application database of some 170, 000.

The major crime news at the forefront of the electronic and print media are the murders of Prisons Officers and their request for political asylum in Canada. It is claimed that these hits are coming from within the prison walls and our Prison Officers are lame ducks awaiting death.

Thursday and yesterday the workers at Customs Dept withheld their services and supported the call by their union leader, Watson Duke.

The country and small business are being strangled, for example, with challenges to obtain forex from the banks. The “holidays” don’t help.

It is good to see people offering solutions for a change, rather than a litany of complaints.
