The blatant attempts of former Prime Minister Hamilton Green to rewrite history cannot be allowed, out of an abiding interest to make available facts and not fiction to the youths of our country.
I never thought the day would come when this gentleman would question the qualifications and criticize the academic credentials of another political leader of Guyana or anywhere else for that matter, as he is attempting to do in his most recent letter to the press, where he describes the Presidential Candidate of the People’s Progressive Party/Civic as being highly deceptive about his purported academic credentials in seeking to occupy the highest post in our land.
Could this gentleman tell the public what are his academic credentials that allowed him to occupy the second highest post in our land, even sometimes acting in the highest post?
I don’t think any decent, striving and devoted Guyanese can disavow his call for good quality leadership in Guyana to take us to that high plateau of development and goodness he describes, but it is the sincerity of the messenger who is bringing this message that must be questioned, based on his apparent inability to recognize that this is exactly what is missing in Guyana today, which makes his letter a classic piece of satire.
Must someone go so far overboard as he does in most of his letters when he heaps tons of unwarranted praise on his leaders? He needs to be more empathetic and mindful of the plight of the average Guyanese particularly the pensioners, and therefore stop describing Guyana as ‘Paradise Island’ since 2015, because it is not. He needs to quietly express his gratitude privately if he feels so inclined to the government of the day, and not try to convince us all that we are living the good life.
His insistence on including irrelevant little snippets of history in his letters is mind-boggling to say the least, but it is his appeal on one hand for sanity and measured language to avoid history from repeating itself, and his call for our leaders to clothe themselves with a sense of responsibility and for their armour to be the truth while they be persons of quality, rectitude, honesty and dignity, that is the most egregious of all.
I say this because in the very letter, he turns around and describes the political opposition as a small cabal of iconoclasts deceiving and threatening persons. How tongue-in-cheek is that?
I ask Mr. Green the question: When he was climbing the political ladder, did he practice restraint, honesty, and was he like Caesar’s wife, beyond reproach? Why is he making such demands of our young leaders?
