OPINION: Does the Caribbean passport scandal affect Saint Vincent again?

By Jolly Green Today I read the heading “Immunity for sale: Diplomatic passport trade investigated,” That heading was from Dominica News.

OPINION: The ULP means Serving the Massa in SVG

By Jolly Green When Ralph Gonsalves decided to use Parnel Campbell to write a new constitution that would ultimately favor Gonsalves himself, he earnestly hoped and believed he would become President of SVG.  It took some three years for Gonsalves to get a new constitution designed that he thought would ultimately capture the Vincentian people.

The Editor speaks: health, garbage, and marine preservation

What exactly did Health Minister, Dwayne Seymour, tell us in his two hour address to the latest budget debate in the Legislative Assembly last Monday? For me – very little of any importance.
