Using BVI-NPI to rescue us from non-functional insurers

Alred C. Frett

Crawling or Stepping into the New Year:

A brand-new year but the old wounds linger - With no New Year Fireworks in the Road Harbour, our National Hero, Noel Lloyd, lying broken and prostrate in a desolate and powerless Park and so many signs that our People still need all the help they can get, it is a glimmer of positivity to be told that some of the Easements we said would aid in the recovery of our Territory have finally been granted.

Making recovery a Christmas gift & New Year resolution

Alred C. Frett

When Fear & Frustration replace Hope & Celebration:

December… As we count down the final month of this year our tradition of welcoming Christmas with celebrations of Joy and a New Year with outpouring of Hope, have been threatened by the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria… A dose of Reality makes it difficult to forget the past, find comfort in the present and prepare for the future – Pretending otherwise simply brings more problems than solutions.

It does not have to get worse before getting better

Alred C. Frett

The past 12-months have been terrible for many of us who have lost Spouses, Homes and Livelihood but there is no turning back the hands of time… As a Writer, right or wrong, things I say, are there for all to see and I am fortunate not to have misled you even in the classic case of Trump’s mis-Election where, what you are now seeing and hearing is what I explained to you over a year ago… (You may check this).

Holiday?- Really?- When did we all go mad???

Recovery shouldn’t be Good enough for One until it’s Good enough for All

We are still deep in the Aftermath and Dilemma of Irma and Maria and what was once easily survivable is now a challenge to Life and Limb…

Moving forward after Hurricanes Irma and Maria

Alred C. Frett

Thanks to those who have helped in this time of need and let’s not be overly critical if we receive less than we were promised – That is the game of Politics and we do not know their most recent situation – Maybe they are worse off now or maybe they are Persons whom we discriminated against in the past… What is far more important is whether we help each other and thereby help ourselves.

BV-Islanders are not refugees- simply great survivors

Alred C. Frett

We are a proud, capable and resilient People but even before we could rebound from August Monday Flood we were slammed by the record breaking winds of Hurricane Irma – Without friend or favour she separated Homes and Businesses from their Roofs, Doors and Windows, disconnected Utilities, uprooted and decapitated Plant life, destroyed our Food Supplies, turned our Harbours into boat Graveyards.

The flood that cancelled our Emancipation celebrations

Mommy is the World really coming to an End?

As the World turns we continue to be burdened globally by Social and Climatic Changes - Typhoon in China, Hurricane in Texas, Floods in the West Indies, Wars in the Middle East, Lies and Deceit in Politics and a Total Eclipse of the Sun – None of these individually guarantee the end of the World but rather than work to make it better too many are giving up in despair and are preparing for Imaginary Heaven.

Winners & losers of work permit fee increases

Alred C. Frett

Replacing Reality with Fantasy and Democracy with Dictatorship: We are all different and yet we are all the same because as the pinnacle of Homo sapiens we share more in common than we differ...

Work permit fee increases – A threat to local companies

Alred C. Frett

If not for Bad Luck the Oppressed would have no Luck:

With all the Madness, Badness and Sadness going on throughout the World one can start from any point and still not know just where to begin… Fabrications and Denials have become a daily way of life and Brand-new Societies are based on Old Racism, Segregation, Class Structure, Colonialism and the willingness of Slave Descendants to Ignore, Accept and Excuse themselves back into Slavery.

Always so sorry for everyone but who is sorry for us?

Alred C. Frett

The Innocent should not suffer for the Guilty:

No one seems to care that our World is in turmoil, our Systems corrupted, our Leaders insensitive, our Children are less Progressive than their Parents, our Ambition fading and Hopes dying - We have become more isolated in a crowded World where Everyone asks How and Why even though the Answers are written on the Wall – Sometimes it feels impossible to decipher Right from Wrong.
