Good First Moves On Plastics

Come January next year, all those who once imported plastic items such as drinking straws, ‘scandal’ bags less than 2ft square, and styrofoam meal containers will have to sneak these in through Customs and run the risk of huge fines of millions of dollars or prison time. Serious business!


A message from a deportee

A message from a deportee. Before you stay abroad and beg and suffer, come home and set up shop.. You can make it anywhere, if you are not lazy. Jamaica is up and running. I’m asking all my fans whenever you visit Black River Jamaica, please find this man and lend him your kind support. He has the Best Jerk Pork in Jamaica…. Out of many one people. #JamaicaupandrunningJamaican Carlos

Professor. Headley

With a warm smile he greets you

and a firm hand shake

Even though he’s just meeting you

for the first time

He listens to everyone

and wasn’t bias in his judgements

He was a man of truth and valor

and a hard worker

He brings a touch of class

to everyone and everything he works on

He held his head high

because he was very proud

We lost a great person

a father to everyone

A friend in times of need

and a true motivator

On behalf of NODM,

which is one of his success and great achievement

We mourns as we have lost someone we can

and always lean on

May your soul rest in eternal peace!

UK government guide advises people being deported to Jamaica to fake Caribbean accent to avoid attention

A Government guide given to Jamaican deportees advises them to fake a “local accent” to help them stay safe.

“Try to be Jamaican,” it says. “Use local accents and dialects (overseas accents can attract unwanted attention).”

The advice emerged after the Government admitted some people who had lived in the UK for decades could have been deported “in error”.
