People many times wonder why Trinidad and Tobago continues to be a lawless country. You just have to look around, listen and observe and you are bound to come to a conclusion. Just this weekend there was a glaring example at a Carnival fete by the Tribe people when singer Machel Montano encouraged patrons to “break the law”.
He told the large audience of fete lovers to disregard the police advisory to seek permission before “tiefing a wine” and “find somebody to jam”. And this uncaring behaviour was actually applauded by the crowd. No-one objected.
