At all cost - Minister Dr. Dolly must step in and stop Pan Trinbago from killing Pan in Trinidad and Tobago

The bands have still not recovered from the pre panorama baggage Pan Trinbago brought to the scene.  Many bands are still in need of players. Many of the seasonal players are still pissed of at Pan Trinbago. Many feel disrespected and furthermore, they felt their bands management did not do enough to speak up on their behalf.  Lots of bands are begging for players. 

Dr. Dolly must protect the culture from the bandits or soon the cries for players will go unanswered.

Bugs: Guess who is in FULL AGREEMENT with you? YOURS TRULY!!! But the PANORAMA COMPETITION is just so dramatic this year that ALL FOCUS is turned in that direction. And I very much doubt that the MOMENTUM to "step in and stop PAN TRINBAGO"  will be there after the CARNIVAL.

The dislike index for Pan Trinbago is so high on the ground that many band managers are feeling the heat. Some bands will never recover from this. There are some real bad vibes between players and management on the ground over this. It really isn't about the money. They really feel disrespected.

Bugs, Look how PT bad mouthing Dr. Dolly in their Press Release, they accusing her of bacchanal and scandal....basically saying she have no Class and Style. It's getting PERSONAL. Total disrespect for the line minister. 

Pan Trinbago demands NCC probe...Melissa Doughty

The release stated that Pan Trinbago and its line minister always had a close and cordial relationship and asked, “what gave rise to the kind of adversarial position that now seems to exist between this new and youthful minister (Dr Nyan Gadsby-Dolly) and the organisation?”

“Tanty Joan (Yuille-Williams) or Big Sister Marlene (McDonald) would have applied more class and style in their dealings with groups under their charge. Dialogue would have been the very first intervention. Not bacchanal and scandal in the public domain,” the release added.

odw the mudslinging comes from desperation, PT feels by making the Minister look small they will look big, they are just exposing themselves by demanding a NCC probe, as if they are saying "them thieving too.

ODW, Imagine that? Gangstas busted in public.  87 million unanswered for. Luxury cars sitting at the docks. And these goons want DIALOGUE?

Yes, indeed.  It would appear that because Tanty Joan (Yuille-Williams) or Big Sister Marlene (McDonald) SAT ON THEIR BACKSIDES, and TURNED A BLIND EYE to years of non-accountability, gross mismanagement, and blatant corruption, or as thieving Pan Trinbago dubs it applying "more class and style in their dealings" that this situation is ongoing.  

This is a perfect example of what is going on in Trinidad society.  Total disrespect of women. Criminals running the show. No one going to jail.

Dale Gulston and pan players in Trinbago missed a golden opportunity! They should have laid out two conditions for participating in Panorama 2017: 

(1) players should receive full payment of all monies owed from Panorama 2016 (allocated by the gov't and paid to Pan Trinbago via the NCC), and

(2) the entire Pan Trinbago Central Executive should be removed from office and an interim committee (made up of pan players) take over Pan Trinbago's operations until a forensic audit of the organization finances is completed. 

Ajamu Nyomba, they will not regain the momentum they had, surely a golden opportunity missed.
