A frequently updated website which shows

1) Government worker salaries
2) Contracts awarded to whom and for what amount. Put company owner names and not just the company.

Basically every dollar which the government spends should be accountable.

I suspect the goodly gentleman is alluding to the heterogenous demographic nature of this country, but I could be sadly mistaken.

Having attained Independence around the same time as us from the British, Singapore got the one thing we never got - Leadership.
The good Doctor was a smart guy but a terrible leader ill equipped to lead a diverse and wealthy nation.

Now having reflected some more I change my answer from what I initially said (Changing the Constitution).
The one thing I would change is the leadership of the country at Independence.

Nothing here is going to change.

This a very backward and stupid country. It's filled with mostly stupid people that support a goverment of lawlessness.

I don't think he is alluding to that at all.
Why would you want to make Trinidad more heterogenous with Beet'em/Lavantory types?
Have you seen the conditions of countries which have the majority of those guys?

That is the complete opposite of Singapore.
Well unless he mean replace all trinis with singaporeans, then yeah.

To the OP, I would stop all Trinis from using adjectives like Dutty, Nasty, Smelly, Stink, as an insult.

people who do manual labor are dirty and smelly and nasty, because that is what happens when you are doing manual work on a tropical island. The association of dark skin and lower-class is what gives us the idea of "Dutty, Nasty, Smelly, Stink" people.

Think about the history of the insult next time you hear somebody use it. Think about how Dutty, Nasty, Smelly and Stink was applied in times of slavery and indentureship. Think about the effects of that on the self image of black and indian people in generations after.

Trinidadians are a self-hating people. OP, I say sink it and done, giwwe British passports.

what about if we focused more on wood industry and iron and steel?
would we be better off then?


Sugar: yes. If it were managed properly and everybody did't want to eat-ah-food. We have proven arable land, sugar is a high deman commodity worldwide. The issue with Caroni was management.

Re Trade schools: it would not have mattered. The chinese supply dirt cheap labour, bordering on human rights violations, which is why there are a threat to nearly any industry.
Wood industry - nah, trinidad too small for viable wood. Leave our forests alone.
Steel - I don't know how viable it is, because we don't have iron ore here (do we?). We just used to process imported materials (did we?)

We don't have iron ore, nor scrap in great enough quantities. Many countries with a viable steel industry do import these things. ISCOTT/Ispat/Mittal is what is known as an integrated mill which simply means from raw material to finished products is/was done in one location.
The problem with ISCOTT was rampant corruption and mismanagement. The problem with Ispat/Mittal is that we didn't own or control the means of production anymore, so were only benefitting from taxes, sale of water, gas and electricity.

Sooo after concrete mix, do u just change clothes and go to public places to bring discomfort to others? These are basic personal hygiene practices. A clean rag and a bottle water with deodorant goes a long way. Do not use manual labor as an excuse to not take a fkin bade.

And soldier, slavery is over....you need to stop the slavery depression when you hear words of present reality.
