A bigger Carrot for Panorama by Pan Trinbago

Patrick Arnold has spoken on the 2007 Panorama carrot of 1m TT$ for the winner. A big carrot, not really.
The Govt ot T&T are joking around with pan and pan players especially poor people players. This is why lots of youth are also turning away from a pair of pan sticks and instead have a pair of guns at their sides. This is going on in Laventille and Morvant People have to go inside from 6.00pm in the evening.
The Govt should be giving 1m T&T per large bands, .800$ per medium band, .500$ per small band, .300$ per pan round the neck bands for entering Panorama. These are all the bands. Then the winners of each category get another equivalent amount per category.
The monies should be divided among all pan players in the band including the arrangers as a sort of salaries. Dont let Pan Trinbago divdie it. Dont let the bands divide it. The Finance Ministry should divide it and no tax deducted from the income either. This is where Panorama should go to. Not the cheating of poor people pan players by both all concerned. They are cheating poor people more and more. Salaries should be paid for the last two weeks of practise by the Govt to pan players for Panorama. $200.00 per night. T&T has money for every thing except the most important things.
Simultaneous, with Arnold's carrot trick, is the Don Ross Private school kiddies steel orchestra of white Trindadian boys mostly. Do you see where pan is going? Boys 8-11 years old.
