Frankly Speaking

Competent community government?

-Independent editorial management?

-On judging art and talent Before I invoke the early warnings of former Member of Parliament, UG lecturer and knowledgeable commentator Sherwood Lowe, I offer anecdotal observations relevant – even if indirectly – to this lead topic.

Elections 2020 and the Republic’s Jubilee

-Judging Calypsoes- without `commentary’

General Elections? Another Jubilee already? Well, yes. You-all think I’m being way too premature? Think again. Every day Bharrat Jagdeo’s new People’s Progressive Party (PPP) seizes on the woeful missteps and blunders of the Granger Coalition and actually campaigns towards the elections, scheduled for 2020.

Collision and confrontation versus co-operation

-Loving, respecting, empowering women

– 24 years not out today!! One of my New Year’s prognostications about probable Granger Cabinet changes came through swiftly, (though we were “assured” such would not have occurred.) Believe me then that I had wondered quietly why – or if – someone like Elisabeth Harper (who would be a Prime Minister) couldn’t be tapped for her expertise and institutional acumen at the APNU+AFC Foreign Affairs Ministry. 

Blackouts and Bethlehem

-Lily passed before legislation passed

-SARU, SARA, SOCU: 2015-2017 Hey and hello all. I hope to be relatively light-hearted dealing with three (3) serious issues as many (most?) of you attend to Christmas-time matters – in the country or in the home.

Indications of a modest post-budget Christmas 2016

-People and places to rob before year-end

–  Another plea for pensioners 2017 Fortunate still to be experiencing more months to my age and life span, I am increasingly wont to restrain my “celebration” of the Festival of Christmas.From poor, challenging childhood to teens the BG “colonial Christmas“ were a grand mix of European traditions and (British) Guianese elements- from the wintry jingle bells, sleighs, snow and frosty to masquerade, steel band tramps, breaking-up-the-house, renewal and church-going — and yes, our own delectable Christmas Cuisine.

Who cares the most for sugar workers? Why?

God, the villages - and “African” business

Bartica, Byderabo: What’s “Best”? Because I appreciate all the elements of the national issue that is the fate and future of this country’s sugar industry; and because I do have a connection with Sugar Union GAWU- however distant- I make bold to offer a few simple but pointed and fundamental comments on a challenge that is bound to be “nationally sensitive”.

Today’s PPP, the Chronicle and CNN

Victoria: A God neither Black nor White?

It doesn’t take any rabidly – anti-PPP individual or group to raise their eyebrows – or ire whenever that Party essays a particular type of criticism of the Granger administration’s style of governance, missteps or obvious blunders.

What I liked about Trump

-As concerns seriously linger

-My simple anti-crime suggestions The commentaries, analyses and dissertations regarding the stunning upset electoral victory of billionaire-businessman-playboy Donald J Trump are not likely to end.
