Re: NP says there is no fuel strike, assures reliable fuel supply

Pressure seems to be building to adjust retail prices to allow for more margins.
The question now becomes ….How much longer will existing prices hold?

Re: Petrotrin refinery shut down

Still I don't know what are the things which have to be executed for this transaction to result in the refinery being revived.
The way things are can only be described as 'hoping for the best but harbor real concerns'.
I wonder how many former petrotrin employees have expectations of re-employment?

Re: Gas Station Manners or To hell with everyone else

When I experience a lack of 'wildness and stupidity' as described here, I visualize a pot-hound being released from its kennel to free-up.
Well the secret to me smiling is out.

Re: State to pay Contractor; government bumbles

Re: Petrotrin refinery shut down

Reconciliation of the values and culture of a trade union with those of a profit oriented business is extremely difficult to manifest and this venture's success possibilities is subject to the resultant risks.

Re: *** The official car accident thread***

Accidents high-lighted all seem to result from a lack understanding of the present road conditions.
To not have the convenience of your vehicle because of a unwillingness to slow down is just silly and the less said about expenses and in some case pain the better.

Re: Watson Duke Charged For Sedition!!

The utterances of many of our 'leaders' have historically proven some lack of judgement, but to reach the level of sedition the standard in law is much higher and is akin to a constructive utterance designed to over-throw the govt.
