  1. I wonder what will become of the song “Philip my dear”. Will he stop singing it?

  2. OBE? Really. Come again please.
    If they are offering Sparrow any such award he should knighted for his contribution to culture and the promotion of the Caribbean..

    Nothing short of Sir Slinger should be accepted if these awards mean anything at all.to us.
