Something has gone awry with the DEM BOYS SEH column that I once looked forward to reading for the writer’s wit ensconced in creoles’. It used to be tongue-in-cheek critical of members of the Government as well as members of the opposition.
Something has changed: it is now a nasty, slanted column that takes political sides. Nothing supports my claim like the one published on June 29, 2020 with the subtitle: “Soulja Bai Name Gon Change to Rigadier.”
At one time, the ghost writer behind this column was not obviously an APNU/AFC supporter or a PPP/C supporter; it was a GUYANESE who thought both parties were fair game for lampooning. Now? It is obvious that whoever’s penning “Dem Boys Seh” is a PPP/C supporter or one with sympathies for that party.
If the anti APNU+AFC slant is the new tone prescribed for this once-amusing column, I fear it stands to backfire badly.
Talk half, lef’ half.
