The Tagline

My tagline is a fundamental that needs to be understood about TnT. It’s the mindset for over 5 decades that is the major source of all our problems and until that changes, nothing much will. We are a twin island state but Tobago is treated like an outside child. And in Trinidad the further you are from Port of Spain, the less the authorities care about you.

There are lots of Trinidadians who go to Tobago for the August holidays but few who can tell you the condition of the villages off the main thoroughfares. Oh, there are a lot of paved main roads but as soon as you turn off them you start to drive on dirt! Dirt roads… in this day and age… And it’s the same in Trinidad. Outside of Port of Spain, no one really cares. “Development” by the way of tall buildings in every corner, yet a single story building to issue passports will never be built in Rio Claro. Not in my lifetime, not in yours. I have a theory about the reason behind the mindset, but that’s another post.

So, in the event the tagline was thought to be a “portie” puffing up his chicken chest and crowing about our great city – no – just an idealist who wants it changed.
