    He doesn’t have to change his lifestyle ! Before Christmas his president will pardon him !

    • You are a racist…….people like you are dangerous to Guyana.
      Before Christmas “His president”………because both of them are black.
      Did you stop to find out how prisoners are pardoned? Who makes the recommendation. The role of the President in the whole scenario. ARE YOU AWARE THAT THE SUBJECT MINISTER IS INVOLVED?
      DO YOU KNOW WHY HE ASKED AND WAS GIVEN THAT MINISTRY?
      You fellows are allowed with impunity to spread you hateful bile…..gwan da side.

        Where in my blog did I say, or even make an infinitesimal suggestion, that it was because he is black he was going to be pardoned by Granger? Isn’t Granger the President of Guyana? Isn’t Justin Austin a Guyanese national? Where, why or how can my words be racist?

        You, obviously, have racism uppermost in your mind because of your mindset. This partisan thinking will never go away as long as those of your ilk are allowed to spill your one sided attitudes, and consequently ferment hatred amongst Guyanese.

        Choose your words carefully, as they become you !
