An all-time low

Dear Editor,

I take the opportunity to commend the multitude of investors who have swarmed Guyana this week for seeing through the infantile attempt at scaring them away via a wicked newspaper advertisement.

The desperate, negativist forces have sunken to an all-time low.

They waited for the day when Guyana’s largest oil and gas conference opened in session to pay for a half page advertisement in local newspapers urging investors to spend their money elsewhere. Anywhere else in the world this would be condemned as highly unpatriotic and anti-national. But do these desperate forces of the dark care? Money and power by any means is their ambition.

Guyanese and visitors would have read the advertisement and it must have occurred to them that there is a wicked, unpatriotic and vile force in the land that is prepared to chase away foreign investors simply because it would not have control of Guyana’s oil and gas sector. Oil and gas have everything to do with that advertisement urging visitors to boycott our own country. How abhorrent!

Guyanese must take note of the depths and lengths some are prepared to go to just to disrupt the economy. This includes encouragement for investors to boycott the country.

On the one hand there is an incessant drumbeat that the government must find thousands of jobs for Guyanese and on the other hand dark forces are attempting to scare away investors who are here to seek opportunities to create thousands of jobs for Guyanese.

Yours faithfully,

Earl Hamilton

Do pensioners have an entitlement or does the GRA have discretion?

Dear Editor, From my understanding of a press statement made by the Minister of Finance which was seen by me for the first time in 2017, old age pensioners countrywide were to benefit from a tax exemption on their savings accounts.

Is there a sudden spike in the level of iron in the water?

Dear Editor, Pray, tell what GWI has done to the water. The water is dehydrating the tips of the ‘stand-up’ heliconias, and reducing the shelf-life of these particular cut flowers.
