I thought about T&T when I read about Saudi Arabia's new budget and economic response to the lower than expected oil prices. A good read for every Trinbagonian in my opinion.

The former People’s Partnership Administration stockpiled OVER $400,000 in alcohol at the PM's Official Residence in St Ann's. According to Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley there are no records to show where the alcohol came from or who it was purchased from.

So true. he's beginning to bug me with the car chasing. I would hope that someone in his court would tug on his coat tail and keep him in line with what's important instead of barking at flying birds. Enough already with the campaigning its much too early for that nonsense.

Cuffie calls on all to share the burden*

http://www.trinidadexpress.com/20160112/news/cuffie-calls-on-all-to-share-the-burden

WE must all pay our way.

This was the view of Communications Minister Maxie Cuffie as he defended the Government’s move to increase the number of items subject to VAT during his contribution to the Finance Bill on Monday.
Cuffie said it was necessary to take action as the country was not earning as much as it used to due to declining oil and gas prices.
“The increase in the number of items subject to VAT, while lowering the VAT rate, will ensure that Value Added Tax will now make a greater contribution to the economy of Trinidad and Tobago in the foreseeable future and, to some extent, compensate for our fall in oil revenues,” he said.
He said while many were seeing the current situation as an economic crisis, the Government viewed it as an opportunity.

Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley says the population must brace for adjustments in the light of the recession. Speaking at the opening of the Energy Conference at the Hyatt Regency Hotel this morning, the Prime Minister said declining oil prices and reduced demand required new government proposals. But he said this oil bust is different than the recession of 1986. WATCH:https://www.facebook.com/cnewslive/videos/10153820358895610/

He says adjustments must be made and the burden must be shared equally. Here’s the full address delivered by the Prime Minister at the Conference, which is being hosted by the Energy Chamber. The theme of the conference, which concludes on Wednesday 20th January 2016, is “Energy and Development”.

Public servants to get their backpay before September


Newsday
Friday, January 22, 2016

Good news for public servants who are awaiting their backpay.

Finance Minister Colm Imbert is assuring that all public servants will be paid “long before September 2016.” Imbert said “we are out there in the banking sector right now, determining how much money is available, what it will cost, but we will be borrowing to pay the arrears because we simply don’t have the cash.

That will be done long before September 2016.

I don’t want to give a precise date at this time but in a month or two, I will be able to give a precise date as to when we will be settling the arrears,” the minister told reporters.

Questioned about money owed to contractors, Minister Imbert said the “last administration didn’t pay their bills (so) more and more debts are piling up and more and more payments are due.”

Revealing the total to be in the billions, Minister Imbert said paying off the debt would “require a debt management strategy” by his ministry if it is to pay contractors while investing in projects to stimulate the economy. Government is looking at the issuance of bonds to do so.

Everywhere in Trinidad has a lot of crime from Enterprise to Moruga to POS to Grande.. so iz not a Laventille or Diego issue. Also it did not start yesterday and did not start few months ago.. started a long time ago. We need more solutions and public dialogue among the people about the culture of crime instead of sitting back waiting for the Government to instill values and good conduct in citizens.

Government has a vital role in crime such as reforming a broken judicial system and preventing drugs and guns from coming into the country but if the people have a culture of crime then there will always be a problem. If the youths have no positive role models a home but instead its a dancehall artist or hip hop artist who is preaching violence then there is a problem. If there is mentality to get rich quick instead of working hard then there is a problem. If parents do not want to be parents and instill values and good conduct in children there will always be a problem. All of this is related to crime. Because the young men who are victims to this environment will do what it takes even by illegal means to get the life they desire even if its not the right life. So what that being said, like I said before there has to be a national dialogue among the public especially the youth about crime. And we must own up to the failures in our communities so we can properly find solutions.

@ Sando prince

Who is waiting for the government to instill values and good conduct in citizens? Rather, the populace at large is "waiting" for a government to attack crime with steadfast application and to spawn results that reflect a notable diminution in crime, inclusive of "serious offenses".

Public dialogue? How much more are you urging? If both internal (within the law enforcement apparatus of the state) and external purges are necessary to stop the rot, then that is what must occur. Unfortunately, I detect a taint of defensive and subjective partisanship in your comments.

There must be political will manifested in action to retard the expressions of criminal activity that indicate nothing other than impunity and callous disregard for the reach of the state. If this present administration fails to recognize the magnitude of the task to which it has become a signatory, it will squander more than political consequences.

Crime is the Number One issue (even considering economic realities) and it should be treated as such, in a manner that is everything other than business as usual. Enough about the persisting legacy of the criminal environment. That is apologist nonsense. I am less interested in when it started, and more interested in how/when it will be mitigated. And, my guess is, accomplishing that would be a vote winner.

@asyumseeker this is how I know you don't live in Trinidad. Yes the Government has a vital role in tackling crime. I am sure I said that in my previous post but with that being said once there is a breakdown in family and breakdown in community crime will ALWAYS exist. It is the society itself who must also confront the issue. See you must not be aware of widespread school violence around our country. Where do you think our youths learn to behave violently? Where did they learn this from? You must not know about the increase in school bullying as well? There are numrous videos on Facebook for you to go look and see. At the end of the day crime is as much as a social problem as it is a systematic one and one cannot see the glass half full if wants to find solutions for the problem. Like I said before the people themselves have to embrace the issue as a community and family problem.

Refer to my previous post as to many examples that contribute to the culture of crime in T&T

Identifying symptoms is one thing. Stemming the tide is another.

Also, you are superimposing the valuation that the change in the criminal landscape in Trinidad & Tobago occurred as a result of dysfunctional intra-societal, socio-cultural issues. I am here to tell you that you are WRONG.

Incidentally, I wish geography were relevant and material to achieving an outcome regarding the criminal context in Trinidad & Tobago. However, we know that it is not. Certainly, evident outcomes suggest that the policymaking directorate (driven by our/your fellow citizens) has not made a dent by way of remediating the problem. As such, spare me the education regarding the ills of the country. It is not needed, and it wouldn't matter even if I was waving a red flag from either Guiria or Delta Amacuro, Venezuela or tracking the flight of corbeaux in Icacos.

It is high time to treat criminal conduct in Trinidad and Tobago as the orchestrated enterprise that it is.

As for bullying in schools? Am I supposed to recognize that as a new phenomenon that is untreatable? Lehwe get serious nah. Enough of the excuses already.

Well It seems we will have to agree to disagree simply because it is clear you really believe there is not a positive correlation with the disfunction in T&T due to the family breakdown/ community breakdown demise in society and the widespread culture of crime around the country. I am one of many who will definitely disagree with your point of view as I can see everyday what is taking place in the country.

Well It seems we will have to agree to disagree simply because it is clear you really believe there is not a positive correlation with the disfunction in T&T due to the family breakdown/ community breakdown demise in society and the widespread culture of crime around the country. I am one of many who will definitely disagree with your point of view as I can see everyday what is taking place in the country.

And this is what I am talking about.. A culture of crime that is engrained from a young age. Everything starts at home. Where did these children learn this behaviour from?  Many many more examples like this..
