Are they “executive criminals” or “criminal executives?” You choose any appropriate description for those greedy selfish persons who, once elected or catapulted into high public office, use governmental corridors of power to illegally secure wealth from the public purse, exclusively for their inner circle of relatives, friends, cronies and comrades.
-PNC parking meters? Nah, fake news
I’m supposed to be the “outside” son of a late “Ole Police” Joe Fenty. Many other senior relatives now also deceased, were also members of the B.G.
-Homosexuality, Granny and `social progressives’
Even if out of my depth, I’m trying to wax provocative today on two social issues, local and worldwide.
Our Brigadier-Historian-President, His Excellency David Arthur Granger is managing to sound consistently articulate quite frequently to the point of bordering on profound oratory with respect to numerous issues of national significance.
-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.
-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.
-One huge reason for white racism?
Believe me friends: it is not laziness that drove me to recycle most of the following sentiments which were first penned in this column four years ago.
-Based on a partly-true tale
-Leadership, service, lust and greed
First a brief background on Newton -called Newt by his close buddies – would be useful.
-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.
-Mixed-race US Presidents: Bye-Bye Barack
I’m signing up to be a (dubious) fan of Finance Minister Jordan. Occasionally he comes off as unapologetically blunt as his officer colleague, occasional spokesman Harmon.
‘Look how nuff different tings gone-up girl…’
Yes, here I go again early in this still “new” year. A repeat sermonette on the cancer of local corruption, the potentially lost youth as thievery thrives.
Prognostications: What a word!
The APNU+AFC Coalition Political Partners squeaked into power electorally in May 2015.
Recall that APNU, essentially the PNC –People’s National Congress- itself a Burnhamite PPP decades ago- with some amorphous other “Baby Parties” linked up, on Valentine’s Day 2015 to contest the May 2015 elections with the Third-Party AFC.
-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.
-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.
So many fatherless homes for Christmas
– Feliz Navidad companero Moses
If you’re really into the year-end Christmas “syndrome”, this very brief budget 2017 commentary might be the column for you.
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”.
