OPINION: Exactly what kind of hotel are they going to build at Mount Wynne?

Pin It

From Jolly Green If we study how much it costs to build a decent 5 star resort hotel with all amenities it becomes obvious that what is proposed at Mount Wynne falls well short of something that is 5 star. Should a government ignorant to all fiscal restraints, such as that headed by Dr Ralph […]

OPINION: When a political party takes a country down the wrong road

Pin It

By Jolly Green Saint Vincent and the Grenadines has become a sinister land where right is wrong and wrong is right. Knowing what is right and doing what is right has become a lost cause in SVG, handed down by current and even some past Vincentian leaders to their followers. Current Vincentian leaders have caused […]

OPINION: The ULP Monstrosity of beach and river sand mining.

Pin It

By Jolly Green Sand mining is the extraction of sand, in Saint Vincent it is mined from beaches and dunes. Sand is used in concrete and for rendering or plastering. Beach sand mining is a direct cause of erosion, and impacts the local wildlife. Disturbance of underwater and coastal sand causes turbidity in the water, […]

By Jolly Green A report about the money taken to banks by the Gonsalves family and friends by I-Witness News 24 November 2009 reported that Ralph Gonsalves said there was nothing wrong with members of the prime minister’s family and high ranking officials of his party selling thousands of US dollars to the state bank […]

OPINION: As Saint Vincent moves from pluralist democracy towards dynastical autocracy

Pin It

By Jolly Green It has become obvious in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines that under the regime of Ralph Gonsalves pluralism is a dirty word which he has fought hard to destroy. He has fought hard to exclude the opposition NDP party from having any input into anything. Laws have been passed in parliament for […]

By Peter Binose Before we start on this story I would like to say I hold no grudge against Julian. There are a few things I would like to ask. One being how he got to head a ministry of a subject he knows nothing about and has no professional training for. Another is how […]

Peter Binose: Jomo Thomas beats Gonsalves over the Head

Pin It

I read and reread the column in last week’s Vincentian Newspaper by Jomo Thomas. I must admit I was knocked sideways by what he wrote and must voice my admiration and acknowledge his courage in writing what he wrote. Among many other things he certainly noted that the land at Mount Wynne was being sold […]

Peter Binose: Police behaving badly in SVG

Pin It

By Peter Binose Police act badly. The public loses confidence in police. Police behave worse. The public’s trust in police drops to an all-time low. It’s a dangerous, vicious cycle. Police need to understand if whilst they are anywhere in public or not in public, within their own home even they should act with a […]
