The attempt of David Hinds to say that Guyana is a special place when it comes to the way that rules of the political game should be applied is indeed laudable for a man of his intellect. In any reasonable environment once the rules of the game has been agreed upon those rules must be applied to evenly to everyone. Here in Guyana, the rules have been agreed upon by all parties who participate in government so they cannot cry foul when those rules have to be applied. The inability of the parties to accept the consequence of the rules they agreed upon leaves a very unpalatable taste in the mouths of the citizens who have no recourse because no one is representing them. Both of the major political parties had an opportunity to change the rules of the game that would reflect inclusiveness and all the other things that they both so fear but they both refused to do so. This shows a level of hypocrisy that is unmatched-in its silliness in how the political game is played. I think at this juncture the citizens should say enough is enough set up an interim government and exclude the two major parties from participating- they have caused nothing but despair for Guyana. This would allow us some space to make a proper Constitution and choose proper leaders who will be held accountable to the rules they sign up too. If we don’t have a rule base system, we can never hope even with all the oil in the world to achieve first world status.
