THERE is a sharp racial turn in the politics in Trinidad and Tobago. Political analyst Winford James, commenting on the results of the latest Nigel Henry poll which reveal a very polarised Trinidad and Tobago, said yesterday: “I cannot tell the last time I read a poll that reflected this degree of polarisation. So there is a regressive kind of behaviour among our tribes.

“When you thought things would have moved towards more dependence on know­ledge and reason, we are having an instinctive kind of reaction to what this Afro-led Government is doing.”
