Frankly Speaking

The headstart – how executive criminals escape

-Ryhaan’s bound-yard

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.

Our Guyana: A plural society,collusion or cohesion?

-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.

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”.
