Political Analysis

A new spinner in town

Move over Roger Luncheon, there’s a new ‘spinner’ in town and his name is Ashni Kumar Singh!  Singh  isn’t exactly ‘new’ but from 2007 to now, Guyana has watched this young bowler move from technocrat finance minister to versatile politician as wily as they come.

Optimism is not enough, Sir Ron

It’s nice of the one-time Guyanese broadcaster – frankly, one of the best in his time amongst a whole bunch of top of the line radio men and women……….sigh – turned high-level diplomat, Sir Ronald Sanders to wish us well in his cross or crutch comment on our hunt for oil and natural gas.

Come on NCN!

Let’s hope that neither the Suriname Embassy in Georgetown nor any of President Bouterse’s news-monitoring aides in Paramaribo regularly monitor NCN’s hourly news casts; if they do then Takuba Lodge may be the recipient of a terse diplomatic note protesting NCN’s recent reference to President Desi Bouterese as President Donald Ramotar’s “Dutch counterpart.” Check it out NCN news moguls!

Somebody forgot to tell the state paper?

It appears that someone completely forgot to tell the state-run newspaper that the day after the President makes a historic presentation to the National Assembly pledging to work together with the political opposition in a new-look Parliament is not the most appropriate day on which to unleash an editorial tirade against one of the political parties with which the government is seeking an accommodation to ensure that every bill that comes before the House is not attended by an outbreak of bloodletting.
