So, are we a corrupt nation?

THE EDITOR: The people of TT have become accustomed to the word “corruption.” It is used by politicians and the man in the street. But what is corruption? It is said to be dishonest or fraudulent conduct by those in authority, example deceit, double-dealing or crookedness.

Is the word corruption loosely used or is it part of our culture? We readily admit that “ah try something.” Or we ask before doing any business, “Who yuh know up dey,” always trying to short-circuit the process. Also, we see a sign on a business saying “Closed” yet we push the door hoping to still enter.

Are we a corrupt nation? Do some introspection.
