(Liquor Licences Act 84: 10)
Notice is hereby given that by lawful authority
under the provisions of the Liquor Licences Act
84:10, the Liquor Licensing Committee for the
Magisterial District of St. George East has
appointed Wednesday the 22nd day of April
2015 at 9.00 o'clock in the forenoon at the
Tunapuna Magistrates' Court as the day, hour
and place at which a Special Session will be held

Dated this 07th day of April 2015
at the Tunapuna Magistrates'Court.
Liquor Licensing Committee,
St. George East
Introducing the one-man,
one-vote for the selection of
party executive officers was a
progressive step by the PNM,
but the same cannot be said for
the removal of the veto of the
political leader in the selection
of candidates for the general
It sounds democratic and it
looks good on paper but who
on the screening committee will
dare to challenge Dr Rowley if
he votes for or against any
Let s get real folks. It s not
going to happen.
Breaking with tradition, Gen-
eral Secretary Ashton Forde
publicly stated, particularly in
the case of the candidacy of Dr
Amery Browne, that he did not
receive a single vote from the
constituency executive commit-
tee although he was recom-
mended by the majority of the
party groups and the members
of the Youth League.
Didn t the members of the
constituency executive commit-
tee come from the party groups
or are they a separate entity?
Forde s insistence on sticking
to the process may be correct
but if the process is convoluted,
and it would appear to be so,
because the screening commit-
tee has to consider other
reports from the constituency
then it s reduced to a "he say
and she say" usually to the
detriment of the candidate.
This seems to be exactly
what led to the rejection of
Fitzgerald Jeffrey the incumbent
for the La Brea seat.
It s therefore patently clear
that Dr Rowley wanted neither
of the candidates and who
don t like it could...
ALL FALL DOWN
Iam curious to find out why Ms Dianne
Baldeo-Chadeesingh has withdrawn
her candidacy for the Chaguanas East
constituency. After all, she is surely an
attractive candidate who has a lot to
offer to the area, or so she says in her
The way the lady speaks, you would
think that she would be an easy win over
Stephen Cadiz. Moreso, when you look at
the Herculean efforts made as both in-
cumbents as well as seeking re-election,
it's more than passing strange that the
PNM screening committee would have
She is not the only one, as the Tobago
West candidate also withdrew. This

tee. Is there more in the pestle than just

The Opposition Leader is well within
his rights to confirm who are the po-
tential PNM candidates for the next gen-
eral election. The overall responsibility is
his.When former PM Manning lost the
elections, was it said the UNC had a good
campaign? Absolutely not. He had to
make a hasty retreat from Baliser House.
We did not realise he could move so fast,
jogging really paid of.
One does not change a winning team.
Wake up call, the PNM came second in
the last general elections. No position is
secure. There is no such thing as a per-
manent job. It is party before position
Former PM Panday is bashing the
present PM for not calling the UNC elec-
tions. A case of penny wise and pound
foolish. Mr Panday, as the old people say,
"that beard take you." Keep it, Christmas
is coming soon, who knows it might
bring some additional job opportunities.
Mr Warner is saying he will win so
many seats. Thanks for your contribution
to football. The 90 minutes have elapsed,
there is no extra time, the referee has
blown off the game. It is time to shake
hands, congratulate the victor and head
to the tunnel. You are a good football ad-
ministrator but alas it is cricket season.
There is life after politics, Dr Ramad-
harsingh has proven that. Swimming
with sharks during your political career
has nurtured you. Well done, you can
represent T&T at the various competi-
Ihonestly hope that the legislation
(Dangerous Dogs Bill) makes the own-
ers of dogs responsible for any attacks
on any individual.
However, cars kill 20 to 50 times more
people than dogs do. Just look at road
death statistics, compare it to humans
attacked and killed by dogs. If we pro-
pose to ban certain dogs maybe we
should look at banning cars also. Less
people will die.
Road deaths will continue until the
Government and Opposition unani-
mously agree to legislate radar technol-
ogy usage. It's not cars that kill, it's the
drivers. Most road deaths occur as a re-
sult of drivers speeding, not drinking.
In Barbados, Jamaica and Guyana this
legislation has been in place for years
and their police can be seen using it daily.
Friends of mine have said that it will
never happen in T&T because drinking is
our culture and the most prominent busi-
nessmen and politicians will be behind
bars in a week.
After years of trying to raise con-
sciousness and advocating radar tech-
nology, I am now starting to believe my
friends. Politicians refuse to address this
issue and are daily photographed and
placed in the newspaper "glass in hand."
Neither the PNM nor UNC (PP) nor
COP nor NAR nor any other party now or
in the past has ever tried to introduce
Road deaths will therefore continue
unabated and good judgment and com-
mon sense in providing up to date radar
technology for police officers to ade-
quately monitor driving speeds will take
a back seat.
