People are asking, if there is a dispute, isn’t the court the best way to resolve it? Not quite, according to Contractor General Greg Christie. It seems he is saying that no one has the right to question his decisions. This is a quality attributable only to God Almighty Himself. Otherwise why has he gotten his knickers into such a twist?

No other channels permitted

Talk is that it’s an insider who has captured the business of preparing the documents and facilitating certain work permits. They say she has cut off the outsiders and will only grant the permits if certain channels are used... hers!

No comprende

Many have noticed the influx of Spanish-only packaging in some supermarkets and pharmacies and now they want to know if there’ll be an inhouse interpreter to help them understand the labels. Shopkeepers need to remember that with healthy lifestyles on the rise people want to read about nutrition before they buy.

Olympic tales

Seems the Jamaica House ‘tattle-tale’ is still at it ‘cause it’s being said that people would not need to question a contract allegedly for £800 per day if they fully appreciated the services rendered for that price.

More to come

Word is the CEO is not completely off the hook because there’s now a mega lawsuit looming that's set to hang like a noose around the neck.

Watch out for the watchdog

There’s talk about a selfappointed neighbourhood ‘watchdog’ who was quick to promote a corner cook shop with music and festivities. But now that the music is disturbing everyone and almost woke the dead, it seems the watchdog’s playing dumb when people beg for mercy.

Question of the week

Who is the favoured one for commissioner of police and why?
