PAN is still relevant

Two weeks ago, the Catholic Pharisees in Grenada were in a tizzy over plans to have the Ordination Ceremony for the new Bishop at Spice Basket and not the built and dedicated Cathedral in St. George’s. For a moment, they failed to remember that Peter’s offer to build a tent for the Lord was refused. They also forgot that human flesh cannot contain or limit the Lord and that His Glory is everywhere and in everything! So the time is now that the Pan Association understands that pan was not made for the glory of Panorama. Pan is for the … Continue reading

Carnival fiasco – necks must be chopped off

The crowning of Rootsman Kelly has got to be the biggest, most blatant, most plain faced act of robbery that has ever happened in the history of calypso in Grenada. There is nothing that anybody can use to explain the results. When Inspector beat Wizard in 1989 with Two Bull Cow, he flattened the old Queen’s Park and so anybody could have understood that and said ok. When Ajamu made a set of mistakes and he won in 2014, he was forceful in the second round and rukungkutungtung mash up the place. All the years when he beat Wizard and … Continue reading

Time to go!

A ruler who lacks understanding is a cruel oppressor, but he who hates unjust gain will prolong his days. Proverbs 28:16. Keith Mitchell is Grenada’s longest serving Prime Minister. He has been in the Grenadian political arena for well over three decades. His legacy is one that is tainted by numerous allegations of corruption, cronyism, nepotism, authoritarianism, gross mismanagement, a failed referendum, taking Grenada to the IMF, structural adjustment, massive tax increases, and a litany of shady deals. Some may say he is a master politician. Personally I don’t think so. Winning elections by any means necessary doesn’t equate to … Continue reading

Terry is a joker!!!

I had to laugh at the heading for Dr. Marryshow’s latest load of falsehoods, “Fake News About Venezuela.” Who more fake and biased than Marryshow? He talks of the “reality” in Venezuela of 8.1 million voting in the constituency election of Sunday, 30th July. Was he there, observing the proceedings? Did he count the votes himself? He makes no mention of the other reality, as reported in PanAm Post, concerning the voting machines used in the election, belonging to a company called Smartmatic. At the election on Sunday July 30th 2017 voters did not have to dip a finger in … Continue reading

Who we go put dey?

Finding the answer to this question may not be as hard as you think. When elections are at hand, ordinary Grenadians ask themselves the question, “who we go put dey?” By that they mean who we go make Prime Minister. Generally, fitness and acceptance are not informed by book learning, but by cultural factors. Folks locate the leader in a place of mystique and separateness! The PM occupies a special place in people’s heart! An emotional picture, eh? An important issue is how people feel about the leaders of the main parties. People normally look for certain qualities and the … Continue reading

The leadership of Nazim Burke

Quiet, almost reserved, Nazim Burke has emerged as the politician best suited to guide Grenada in the next phase of its development. Burke gives life to the saying that the noise in the market is not the sale. After 18 years of Dr. Mitchell’s flamboyant and bombastic rule, Grenada is riddled with debt, mired in corruption, drowning in unemployment and directionless like a leaf in a whirlpool. In 3 years, Burke has been able to transform the NDC from a fractious, demoralised party into a united force that is now on the verge of winning the next election to begin … Continue reading

Road Safety Reminders!

“BREAKING NEWS UPDATE: Multiple fatalities in serious accident in Vieille Case”. So read a popular newspaper in Dominica. That accident resulted in five deaths last Sunday. This brings to mind the need for us to remind ourselves of safety on the road. Therefore, the following are some Road safety reminders: (1). When driving, especially in mountainous areas, drive slowly. When you are approaching a corner, please slow down enough to turn the corner comfortably. Drive even slower on wet or foggy roads. (2). Use your horn responsibly, sounding it whenever you come to any point on the road that you … Continue reading

Fed-up with FLOW

I have to write about the way that FLOW has treated its customers over this holiday weekend. On Sunday morning we turned on the T.V. to watch certain programmes. We discovered that all the channels had been changed and we could not at first get them. Eventually, we worked out the channels we wanted and were able to watch some of them, but it was a very had start to the day. FLOW seems to act without any consideration whatsoever of its paying customers. There was no advance notice of these changes, or explanations, and least of all any apology … Continue reading

Kaiso semi-finals was nursery rhyme

Yes, I am offering a reward to the person or persons who murdered calypso in Grenada. I also want back the hard-earned $60 my wife and I shelled out for the Melody/Papitette calypso semi-finals, only to be insulted with kindergarten manjay pupput at Progress Park. If that was the best coming out of the preliminaries, heaven help those who couldn’t make it in! With so much happening in Grenada, one would think that calypsonians’ biggest headache would be deciding which juicy bone to suck on. Instead, veterans like Zingo, Sheldon and Papa Jerry could only offer up white, sandy beaches, … Continue reading
