THE EDITOR, Sir:
It seems The Gleaner has made itself the moral compass for the Caribbean, especially Barbados and Trinidad.
I am a Trinidadian. Those who encourage Jamaicans to boycott Trinidad-made products, do you ask why Jamaicans are not wanted in many countries?
I fully agree with our minister of national security, Gary Griffith, in taking a stance against lawless Jamaicans. Keep your rot for yourselves! We have Jamaicans for hire in contract killing in our country and many are into the drug trade and other crimes. Is this your precious export?
It is better for us to do without your trade than to become like Jamaica. You fail to realise that 17,000 Jamaicans are here illegally. If Jamaicans are a people of great pride in their country, why go where you are not wanted? Your pride and social standing do not mesh. Trinidad and Barbados are First-World nations.
San Fernando, Trinidad
