This must not happen again

December 28, 2010 | Filed Under Letters 

Dear Editor, My heart bleeds for right thinking people in Guyana. And those are the people who should be in the positions of professional authority especially in respect of the life, and limbs and sanity of our nation. To my mind Dr. Madan Rambarran should resign. Why? It does not appears, as if his professional […]

Boxing Night vexations and the hate young Guyanese have for their country

December 28, 2010 | Filed Under Features / Columnists, Freddie Kissoon 

Each day in this country, you see not only the helplessness of the presidency, the  Government of Guyana and the ruling party to instill some form of logic in their governance but the abominable, obnoxious display of incompetence that has no limits. We are half a year away from a general election, and I am […]

Guyana is fast becoming a Police State?

December 28, 2010 | Filed Under Letters 

Dear Editor, The Guyana Police Force (GPF) is no longer an independent institution. Under the present Commissioner Henry Greene, supported by a number of senior officers, who form the top brass of the force, this once proud organisation has now degenerated into the strong arm of the Government. Arrest and detain seem to the instructions […]

We need to free our country from this incompetence

December 28, 2010 | Filed Under Letters 

Dear Editor, Now that the New Year is upon us, it is customary to make those New Year resolutions that we sometimes find difficult to bring to fruition. Some of the more common resolutions that people make on New Year’s Eve (or as we say in Guyana… Old Year’s Night), include a desire to: Stop […]

Political arrests and victimization by the regime

December 28, 2010 | Filed Under Letters 

Dear Editor, The arrest and detention of Freddie Kissoon and Mark Benschop for a simple traffic violation has nothing to do with breaching the Traffic Laws. This is simply a political arrest and political victimisation by the regime to punish the two individuals. If they had committed a traffic violation, why didn’t the police charge […]

DARK CLOUDS BEHIND THE SILVER LINING

December 28, 2010 | Filed Under Features / Columnists, Peeping Tom 

As the year winds slowly down to an end, it is time to reflect on some of the more important developments of 2010. The economic scorecard is mixed. For the fifth straight year, Guyana will enjoy a positive but moderate growth rate. This is good and bad; good in the sense that the economy is […]

The dilemma of West Indies cricket

December 28, 2010 | Filed Under Letters 

Dear Editor, It doesn’t appear to me that the strategists, revisionists, technocrats, directors and even the experts that are daily involved in the direction of West Indies cricket have intelligently considered the rationale in preparing the West Indies team for international tournaments, such as the World Cup. No other cricketing country can be so naïve […]

Kaieteur News Editorial

December 28, 2010 | Filed Under Letters 

Dear Editor, The Editorial of Kaieteur News (December 21), “Lawlessness abounds in this society”, surely caught my eye; I thought that you were supporting my premises in my letter two days before where I stated that there should be stark cessation of those who repeatedly defy the laws and law authorities – referring to the […]

The situation at the La Repentir Disposal Site is the result of a crime perpetuated against the citizens of G/T

December 28, 2010 | Filed Under Letters 

Dear Editor, Season Greetings to all Guyanese. The caption of the Demerara Waves online article, “Kissoon, Benschop arrested for blocking landfill site; Government intervenes in chaotic landfill” and comments by Public Works Minister, Robeson Benn surely give the impression that the problem at the Le Repentir Disposal Site (LRDS) was caused by the Georgetown Municipality.

The naked display of contempt for the law speaks loudly how far we have returned to the ugly past

December 28, 2010 | Filed Under Letters 

Dear Editor, Just before UF-PNC coalition, the late Ms. Janet Jagan used to taunt Mr. L.F.S. Burnham with: All I wanted for Christmas is my Prime Ministership, my Prime Ministership, see my Prime Ministership, Gee, if I could only have my Prime Ministership, then I could wish you “Merry Christmas!” Ms. Jagan’s fears were justified […]

The holidays have not been all bad

December 28, 2010 | Filed Under Editorial 

The holidays brought to the fore the extent to which Guyanese long for family and friends, for seasonal foods, especially those that have become firmly associated with the season, and of course returning Guyanese. The airlines did brisk business shuttling people from the cold climates to this part of the world where the worst that […]
