It was not long ago, in this very column I said what this country needs now more than anything, was proper leadership. I make no apologies when I say what passes for leadership in Trinidad and Tobago these days is shameful and uninspiring.
And when I say leadership I mean at all levels of the society, whether it is a civil group; non-profit organisations; the various business chambers; village councils; the list is quite long. Some have progressive leaders; and others have ill-prepared leaders. But the fact is that we have a serious problem where leadership is concerned.
