Bulldogs VS Panthers & The Chancellors Governance Report on the UWI

PORT-OF-SPAIN,  Trinidad and Tobago, March 28, 2021 - A powerful letter written by academics to UWI’s Chancellor, Robert Bermudez, entitled “It’s a Travesty of Justice! 146 International Academics Flay Beckles Contract Delay”, was published in Jamaica’s Wiredja.com on March 25, 2021. This letter now brings into clear perspective the raging media controversy surrounding the Chancellor’s Governance Report perpetrated by seemingly vicious bulldogs on the one hand, and civil rights activists akin to members of the Black Panther Party, (a political organization founded in 1966 by Huey Newton and Bobby Seale  in Oakland, California), on the other.

A Subversive Report on The University of The West Indies

ST. JOHN'S, Antigua and Barbuda, March 27, 2021 - Let me correct a mistake that many, myself included, have been making. The Byron Report or the ‘The Report of The UWI Chancellor’s Commission on Governance of The UWI’ has ceased to be. The contents of that document now constitute the CHANCELLOR’S REPORT (referred to in this article as The Report). This was confirmed in the Press Statement made by Sir Dennis Byron, Chair of the UWI Chancellor’s Commission when he indicated that the report of the Commission was accepted by the Chancellor.

JAMAICA | Mark Golding on PNP's position on Crime and Violence

HOPEWELL, March 20, 2021 - It is said that ‘hell has no fury like a woman scorned,’ but the fury which emanated from prime minister Andrew Holness as he made his contribution to the budget debate in parliament on Tuesday, in relation to the PNP’s position on the use of the state of emergency as a primary tool in Jamaica’s crime-fighting arsenal, easily eclipsed, and even surpassed that of  the proverbial scorned woman.
