    The law is the law and it is binding on all who dwell or visit within its jurisdiction.   The law is particularly binding on those who make the law.  As I observed in a previous commentary, “Law makers should not be law breakers”.

    A “Venezuelan owned” solution: too much to hope?

    Commentators in western media, that dominate international news distribution, characterise any government, entity or person who speaks out against meddling in the internal affairs of Venezuela as “supporters of the Maduro regime”.  Implicit in the characterization is that all these governments, entities or persons are “in the pocket” of the Venezuelan government, and, therefore, have […]

Maintaining independence: the imperative of diplomacy

Maintaining independence: the imperative of diplomacy

Except at time of crisis, many countries of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) credit their foreign ministries and their embassies or high commissions abroad with little value.

February 9 is National Toothache Day and this made me think of my perceptions of celebrations. I thought these events were created to remember the good that comes out of something that was sometimes bad. Why would anyone want to celebrate a toothache?
