I write in full support of one H Singh,
who considered it a retrograde step for
the Board of Inland Revenue to have tax-
payers visit their offices to collect their
tax return forms.
After phoning to enquire where one
may collect said forms I was advised to
call at the Queen Street office after 1 pm
and I would be given forms.
At great inconvenience, I, being 76
years old and with emphysema and coli-
tis, went into town to collect my forms.
Well, lo and behold, no such luck. A po-
lite young woman offered to see if she
could get a form from Trinidad House---
again no luck but she did give me a Web
site where I could get a printout.
There again, no such luck. You can get
up to 2012.
Where does that leave me and the
myriad number of pensioners who have
annuities? A computer and printer, if we
have one, are now useless.
Like H Singh I wonder what the objec-
tive is behind this move. To frustrate the
If so, this has been the most success-
ful instigation this Government has
made since it came to power. Congratu-
I hate to think what next idiotic move
will emanate from a government depart-
ment seeking to excel the BIR.
In Sunday's Guardian, John Gaskin
and F Mouttet wrote on the discontent
of our people towards the PP Govern-
ment, especially the PNM party.
The PNM has used the media to cam-
paign for the 2015 elections against the
first woman Prime Minister of T&T. She
is not responsible for the souls or behav-
iour of the ministers in her Cabinet, but
has had the guts to remove them be-
cause they have embarrassed our is-
The PNM Government, with more
than 35 years in power, should be the
last to criticise the PP. Our country was
run down, laws allowed to be broken
with no punishment, corruption in the
police force, kidnapping and crime high-
est, and taxpayers' money disappeared
overseas, never to be regained.
What are you doing for your islands?
Do you volunteer to help the less fortu-
nate or wayward youth, do you give a
smile/listen? Or do you just criticise and
Ms Ira Mathur, Guardian Commentary,
March 30, Page A22, said, "We refuse to
be like the Bajans."
I lived in Barbados for 35 years and
Bajans are discontented, unfriendly, inse-
cure in themselves and dislike T&T, and
we go over there and badtalk our is-
Sunday was April 6, 2014. On
that day in 1970, NJAC's Basil Davis
was shot dead by police at the Peo-
ple's Parliament (Woodford
Square), Port-of-Spain. It was the
potent Black Power time, when Afro
and Indo Trinbagonians banded to-
gether to oppose official cronyism.
Basil Davis made the ultimate
sacrifice fighting against the then
administration's oppression of poor
people. How many of us can/would
voluntarily lay down our life for the
same purpose? The least we must
do is honour his contribution by set-
ting things right. The time is always
right to do the right thing!
In the face of the overflowing Un-
employment Fund (it contains more
than $7 billion), I wonder why we
still tolerate poor people being
chinksed of their entitlement to
welfare programmes whose expen-
diture is exclusively met by monies
collected via the Unemployment
Levy---a levy which came about di-
rectly as a result of the Black Power
Power to the people! Give the
people what is theirs! Basil Davis
bought it by his blood!
RIP, Basil Davis! NJAC might have
forgotten you, but I haven't!
