Trade union principles

It is expected that any discussion on the features and characteristics of trade unionism, will centre on the principles governing the labour movement. It is common knowledge that trade unionism is founded on unity of purpose, strength and understanding of the membership of trade unions. As an extension to this, there is other key fundamentals […]

Government for whom?

Sincerest apologies for the absence of this column over the past six weeks. I was battling recurring writer’s block and was forced, somewhat reluctantly, to take what proved to be a much-needed break to rest and rejuvenate these ageing brain cells. Thanks to those of you who, on observing my absence, sent emails to enquire […]

Trump’s Mississippi miscalculation

Five years ago, on June 26, 2011, a 47-year-old man, Craig Anderson, was on his way to celebrate his birthday when he was attacked and murdered by ten white teenagers in a parking lot in Jackson, Mississippi. Why? No reason, other than he was black. The ten reportedly first attacked Anderson, punching him repeatedly, before […]

Defining the foreign reserves

Defining the foreign reserves

During the Budget debate last week, the Minister of Finance went to great lengths to demonstrate that he is in charge of the country’s finances.

Bajan vibes impress N.Y. D.J.s

“I got a job I doan like, I got to work all night…meet me on the road.  I calling in sick … the vibes too sweet to miss; me brother tell me this, rum is the only medicine.” King Bubba. Is Bubba’s song “Calling In Sick “the ‘proverbial swallow’ that doesn’t make a summer?  At […]

Woes for teams batting first

Woes for teams batting first

A worrying pattern of teams badly falling down on batting first has been very evident in the first three rounds of matches in the top Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) three-day Championship. No side has been able to occupy the crease for an entire day despite generally hard, true pitches. There are two sessions of two-and-a-half […]

Need for true sisterhood

Need for true sisterhood

Shaz and Tracy are at it again. The pair who’ve become known for their radio talk segment Hey Vajayjay, are diversifying their offerings as they’d told us we could expect. Tracy has started a blog about freezing her eggs. Every positive and supportive space which is opened up for discussing female sexual or reproductive health is […]

Don’t blame technology!

Don’t blame technology!

The Prime Minister has now determined that technology is partially to blame for declining standards. Many of the issues we now confront began to surface in the mid-seventies. When the gangs first appeared, they were dismissed as “wayward youth”; after we ignored the agriculture sector for nearly 40 years, we were then advised to make kitchen […]
