New taxi group launched in SVG

The SVG Professionals Taxi Association was launched last Thursday at the Cruise Ship Terminal in Kingstown.

This new association aims to offer professional and reliable taxi and tour operator services here in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, the group said.

President of the association, Arrington Burgin, speaking at the launching, stated that they are looking to change how taxis are operated in SVG with professional taxi drivers.

Burgin added that as an association they want to work together as a unit and a body.

At the launch, Minister of Tourism, Ces Mckie, reiterated that such an association is needed and will add to the transportation services in SVG, especially throughout this cruise season, which begins Nov. 1.

The SVG Professionals Taxi Association is in partnership with Sentry Insurances Ltd. and the SVG Teachers Co-operative Credit Union.

Meanwhile, Sargeant Kenny Jones, who represented the Traffic Department of the Royal SVG Police Force, encouraged the members of the association to always be professional whether they are in uniform or not and should always adhere to the traffic laws.

  1. (photo) Only missing straw hats to complete the perfect-impression. Uniformed taxi chauffeurs! That must be a first. Nine Taxi drivers? Won’t be enough. This service could grow fast. If Mckie doesn’t steal your money. You people are setting up an island-wide-uniformed taxi-drivers organization, With ULP backing but, no photo of Kenny Jones or Ces Mckie, who made it clear that this is a government scheme. Another magic-trick easter-egg from the ULP?

  2. FULFILLMENT OF SCRIPTURE

    .Mighty Sparrow was right when he sings ‘…Half the trouble in the world today, comes from people who
    don’t know what to say’ [Well Spoken Moppers: You Tube].

    Biblically, such comment appears to be a ‘…Fulfillment of the Scripture.’ The Scripture edifies that
    ‘…The mouths of fools utter foolishness’ [Proverbs 15:2], and one might add, ‘…negativity.’

    Why on earth should they have worn ‘…Straw Hats? They are certainly not entertainers or souvenir vendors. You may also want them to have guitars in their hands as well.

    It may have been much better to offer congratulatory sentiments and encouragement to these Taxi Operators who have shown ‘…vision and ambition,’ in taking a service associated with the nation’s ‘…hospitality industry’ to a higher level, and with more professionalism.

    Well done guys. A step in the right direction. C-O-N-G-R-A-T-U-L-A-T-I-O-N-S.

    • Shame on me, I should have known that you are just another well-camouflaged alligator in the river

      Obviously, you and I have totally different upbringing and education. I think that you simply cannot see the irony in this taxi endeavor.

      Then you start to run up your mouth using bible scriptures to back up your ignorance. Well boy, a lot of people have lost their lives in bible name. Or is it the birdie, who is your reference?

      You say you come from Gonslaves village? You obviously lack exposure. you simply can’t understand this monkey-band charade. (the photo)

      But really, I think that you are pretentious and refuse to see the truth. Soon the state will probably own or run most of everything in SVG. To me, that is just another way to subject poor people because when you hungry even dry bread and water does go down like bread and cheese and Mauby.

      Sometimes (like now) I realize that some Vincies lack exposure to realize that they are living in abject poverty and that they are being played by crooks and criminals. But not you, your are content to know that you grew up with Gonsalves eating from their family business in your village. Well..

      Next time, Please read between the lines, my ignorant prosecutor.

      But, You don’t know better. How long have you been trolling me, boy?

  4. WILD IMAGININGS -VENOMOUS UTTERANCES

    Read carefully what is written on these lines. Do not read between. No pun is intended.

    The letter ‘r.’ could mean ‘…rogue; …robot; .ruthlessness or reckless abandon.’ People do exhibit these in their misguided utterances.

    A capitalized ‘R,’ it could mean a name, ‘…Rose or Rochelle; …Roberta or Rihanna; …Richard or Romeo; …Rawlston, my name or Ralph, your Prime Minister.’

    These utterances reflect a warped mind, saturated with ‘…anger and animosity; .;covetousness and jealousy toward a person not known and one known- your Prime Minister. Rawlston Pompey is not a political figure or a hanger-on. Google this name, it may pop-up somewhere, but not with gibberish.

    Your utterances speak to ‘…simplistic gibberish, yet full of snakish venom; …bitterness and rage.’
    They are reflective of a life of ‘…boyhood or manhood miseries.’

    These were known to have led many people into psychiatric institutions or down slippery slopes to destruction. Seek help, lest you allow yourself to be institutionalized. Take warning or take heed.

    Though not my Prime Minister, he is my boyhood friend and school-mate. A most wonderful and memorable time growing up. No hatred or jealousy. Romp and roam and roll and tumble together. Great fun and frolic.

    • A filthy gonorrhea-infected vagina and ULP stooge like you doesn’t know any better. You come playing the great intellectual yet you are nothing more than a pawn and yes-man to Ralph, who is not worth the time of day. No pun intended. I think that Ralph […] sent you for me because he can’t sue me or shut me up. Now I know that I’m am getting under his skin.

  5. HUMBLE SUBMISSION

    Hello r,
    Submit respectfully, that you may have consumed that part of a parrot anatomy where effluent exits.

    Pointless continuing to respond to your diatribic utterances. They offer nothing to the news report the Editor has so kindly published for public information.

    You have brought misery upon yourself, and nothing wholesome or constructive to the topical discussions.

    Rawlston Pompey who resides abroad, is not an operative of anyone, and refused to be drawn into any ignoramus discussions about your Prime Minister.

    Was not around when he went into elective office. Thus, cannot speak to the way he administrates. Know that he is a ‘…darn good political personality.’

    Secret documents by diplomats or agents of the United States released by ‘…Wikileaks’ suggested this. They credited him as being among ‘…the most intelligent among his regional colleagues.’

    Realized that you have ‘…hung-ups, but this should make you very proud r.

    Please go up to the ‘…Crater Lake- La Soufriere.’ Sulphurize your brain’ or the ‘…Salt Pond at Owia,’ take a dip; ..a dive or a swim.’

    These may rid your heart of anger and hatred and animosity towards your Prime Minister.

    You have made your point, you are dissatisfied; …disappointed and seemingly not too far from the depths of despair. Hold on to this line ‘r’, it may save you from going under.

    We are all Vincentians r; Let not your heart be so bitter. Speak with him .
    r
    Good bye and God bless both of you.

  6. OUTRAGEOUS AND OBJECTIONABLE r

    No intention to spark debate, but ‘r,’ why would you want to offend (i) …Your mama: (ii) …sista; (iii) …aunty; (iv) …niece; (v) …wife; (vi) …dauta; (vii) …adulteress; and (viii) …gal-friend.’

    Most of all why would you wish to attack the women of the nation, irrespective of status, by describing their reproductive organ in that outrageous and objectionable way.

    This clearly suggests a mind ignoring common decency or losing touch with reality.

    The Editor might wish to look at what he may have inadvertently overlooked.

    r, you may live to regret that description. Maybe not, for the world is moving in a very strange way.

    Even so, keep it clean r.

  7. Jeremiah 9:6: Your dwelling place is in the midst of deceit; Through deceit they refuse to know Me,” says the Lord.
