The Brigadier-Veteran, Ex-Cops, Retired Public Servants
The whole concept of the Guyana-brand of “junkies” is worth some additional study even though I suspect much has already been attempted with respect to this unwanted social phenomenon.
-That 1955 split, Cheddi, Ashton, Forbes
I invite readers, both my regulars and casual fans, to decide whether (all) the following is factual, true and an accurate record of a very recent war-room-type strategy meeting by executives of the opposition People’s Progressive Party (PPP), as they planned another round of responses to all the Granger government is doing right and doing wrong as they, the PPP, fights to stay relevant even necessary.
-Cheddi’s Red House – and the split
Ignoring my preference for avoiding immediate comment on issues of simmering significance, sometimes better left to others blessed with sharper intellects, wider experience and more analytical attributes, I, never-the-less, plunge into two conversations today.
- The NYPD in G.T., Our diaspora
Do I dare ask? How relevant is trade unionism in Guyana today? (I’ve just done so.)
Unnecessary question you say? Because if Guyana is supposed to be a modern democracy one element of that status is the right of workers to be represented by trade unions of their considered choice.
- Those wasted billions!
Today is to be among my briefest offerings. But hopefully, effectively terse and pointed.
And the observations and shared opinions and advisories which follow are substantially derived from the views of editorial print media writers of this past Sunday.
-Concerning some other ministers
Sixteen years ago I “approached” a young lady living in a section of West Ruimveldt in the Georgetown Capital. But because of the deplorable conditions of what passed for “roads” and pathways, I balked at accompanying her home.
-Guess which minister is….
The virtually-premature ministerial salary increase generosity aside, I share my thoughts on issues of authority, power, humility in fair-minded service and political personality changes.
-Secrets Comrade Bharrat knows?
Three “trivially significant” and introductory points: Public Servant above refer to workers employed by the Government via numerous entities.
Next, I have utilized, for many years, the late Leslie Melville’s description of the nation’s traditional Public Servants as the “Employed Poor.”
Lastly, towards the end of 1992, I played a role in the administration/management
Simón Bolívar – and tomorrow – the third
Escapist-like, today I veer away from all those current issues of national significance, which too often tend to be stressful, provocative or controversial.
- his mother wasted nine months?
(but did she disappoint him?)
In my earlier life, or a phase thereof, both as a young professional and a more activist political Party member, I was obliged to attend most, if not all, of the Congresses and General Council gatherings of the “paramount” People’s National Congress (PNC) – my party of choice.
-Who criminalised society?
Here I go today venturing into an issue of “uncharted waters” for me. And, I suppose, being somewhat out of my depth.
-Bharrat’s hostile, critical support?
I don’t mean that the “professional”, recidivist criminals are actually choosing law school to qualify themselves as attorneys.
Though there just might be some qualified law professionals who are tempted to try illegal things because they can extricate themselves from any possible negative consequences, I’m referring to those individuals who have decided on a life of crime and who, often guided by their legal counsel’s advice, briefs and defence- performance in courts, educate themselves as to possible acquittal scenarios and possibilities.
-What honourable house?
I had given myself up to this month end/weekend to feel free to criticize harshly but constructively, the still “new” May 2015- Granger Administration.
-More minds to interpret the law?
The dissatisfaction, expressed publicly, by the former Alliance For Change Berbician activist and one line in a recent Stabroek editorial have given rise to the following comments today.
- Again: Whither Black Business?
Today I’ll appeal to even my regular readers – as well as the curious casuals – to bear with this brief Sunday–School/Bible –lesson– like “lesson” intended to capture the element of the concepts implicit in my wordy lead caption.
