No right-thinking person would have been surprised at the recent resignation of former Justices of Appeal Roger Hamel- Smith and Humphrey Stollmeyer as members of the Judicial and Legal Services Commission (JLSC).

I have already written about the financial innovation that was CL Financial in its recognition of the risk averseness of capital resources held in T&T and that the need to diversify the economy requires local capital to be invested in higher risk ventures so as to earn foreign exchange.

The decision to eject a citizen from the court because, in the view of the judge, the pants she was wearing was too tight again demonstrates why justice in our country will always be backward.

Our Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley, in his second forum of meeting the people, did put the cards on the table on certain issues. One of them being what can happen in the public sector if revenues continue to decrease.

They that sow the wind shall reap the whirlwind, so says the book of Hosanna. The construction of the ill-fated Debe to Mon Desir link road is a story of the whirlwind which is unfolding.

When the Prime Minister says ‘We have had to borrow to fund our lifestyle,” whose lifestyle he is referring to?

Surely he could not mean the lifestyle of our poorer sector of this nation as these poor souls have been deprived of many of the essentials for decades.

On Thursday, July 13, 2017 my wife’s grandmother unfortunately passed away at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex (EWMSC). I offered to carry my father-in-law and mother-in-law (daughter of the deceased) to the hospital.

Can someone tell me what is the difference between the Monday Night Forum hosted by former prime minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar and the town meeting session entitled “Conversations with the PM” hosted by Dr Keith Rowley?

I welcome the news that our Prime Minister and the leader of the Opposition have decided to meet to discuss matters relating to our country.

It was reported yesterday that Prime Minister Rowley hinted at possible cuts in the public sector. He is obviously facing up to the realities of our situation.

After looking at the Point Fortin Conversations meeting Tuesday night, it is clear that Dr Rowley is a Prime Minister that is determined to st ay in touch with the people. What is also clear is that this exercise is meant to be a check and balance on his Members of Parliament and Cabinet.

I must commend the Mayor, or whoever is responsible for trying to ease the traffic congestion within the Port-of-Spain area. Making Murray Street one-way was a good idea as most times there are vehicles parked on both sides of the road and two-way traffic was a nightmare.

Hmmm.... flipping through the pages of my early education in my mind, I grudgingly remembered my Students’ Companion. Little did I know how insightful this book was, and is.

The suggestion of getting rid of the prison in Port-of-Spain, as reminded by yesterday’s Guardian Editorial, is a very good one. In these modern times prisoners need to be housed as far as possible from built up areas such as Port-of-Spain.
