The revival of standards and mode of dress is one of the most difficult areas to address, when it has been allowed to decline. A picture it is said, is worth a thousand words; this is most evident in the Guyana Times of December 18, captioned ‘International performers call on Tourism Minister.’ I believe gentlemen (note I did not say men) must at all times observe a high degree of decorum both in attire and speech when interacting with a lady. The attire of some of the men in that photograph is an insult to the Minister and her office; maybe such is accepted in their domain, however, I do frown upon it, when it involves one of our female ministers of government. I do hope that the ‘gentlemen’ in question, would have seen the error of their ways, and would dress more appropriately in future.
