  1. Don’t worry Mark – you not losing it. History repeats itself, those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it, etc. etc.
    From my youth I remember when the PNC government pursued this policy and they were accused of everything just short of genocide.
    Meanwhile, Bajan multimillionaire Kyffin Simpson has invested millions in a modern megafarm in the Upper Takatu-Upper Essequibo region, growing rice, soya beans, corn, livestock…But wait, I don’t see sugar cane on that list, I wonder why?
