OUR CONSTITUTION REFORM: GENUINE ACT OR "RACHIFI"?

We have captioned this article with this Caribbean word "rachifi", specifically to highlight the significant role it plays in our society and to show its connection with politics and demagogy. The word has many synonyms in proper English, namely: underhandedness, skulduggery, trickery, crafty deception and deceitful, dishonest or unscrupulous behaviour.

As we move into the final countdown towards a clearly anti-democratic and highly partisanized Constitution Reform, our caption bears greater relevance. Therefore, it is essential that we leave a historical reference to some tough questions before the probable consummation of a "Constitutional Coup d'état" scheduled for November 24th 2016.

The swift return of litter to the rocks between the cruise port and the water taxi jetty since the clean-up is a disgrace; so, as you say, is the Carenage.
