OP-Ed: Frank Anthony is PPP’s best choice for presidential candidacy

by Frantz Bollers The opposition People’s Progressive Party (PPP) is at a historic period of picking a presidential candidate who will be his ‘own man’ and not be a puppet of its maximum leader, Bharrat Jagdeo. That process begins on Thursday, 27-December-2018. Yes, Mr. Jagdeo is the PPP’s princeps maximam. He was gerrymandered and catapulted into the presidency, general secretary and ...

OPINION: Time to Heal Guyana from racism after no-confidence vote

By Heal Guyana By now you may be aware that the PPP’s No-Confidence motion has been carried last (Friday) night. As a result of this, there have already been countless racist outbursts on social media, not only from known political party activists but also from normal everyday people who are angry at the recent development. Heal Guyana is currently working ...

OPINION: No-confidence motion is a journey to nowhere

By GHK Lall Some areas of the nation have been abuzz with chatter over the no-confidence motion and its possible implications. I, for one, did view it with scant interest and even less attention. Amounted to just so much ho-hum, though possessing of much sound, but puny intensity. Frankly, much ado about nothing and not worth the focus. Now I ...

OPINION: Proceed cautiously with any new airline application

By GHK Lall I learn that an entity that once plied the skies between Guyana and points north has applied for approval to start over doing business with Guyanese travelers under a new configuration. I recommend that Guyanese authorities proceed cautiously, conduct really robust and stringent due diligence; and after only the most rigorous tests should such approvals be forthcoming ...

OPINION: Volda’s unhealthy foot-and-mouth

By GHK Lall Talking without thinking? A rush of blood to the head? A private position publicly aired by a ranking party (public) official? Say it ain’t suh, Volda…. However looked at, this is bad news. I submit that this is the political simplicity of job opportunities and hiring decisions here; always was, always is. As repeated constantly, the reality ...

OPINION: From the big stick of gunboat diplomacy to the political correctness of oil diplomacy

by GHK Lall The Americans have spoken.  I would hope that the established pantheon of Guyanese oil patriots is listening, and that they appreciate the full import of the finely calibrated language of our formidable northern Uncle on the thorny, long unsettled, heavily menacing border dispute.  Except that the sophisticated syntax of the Americans has just diluted significantly that menace. ...

OPINION: What election gimmickry

by GHK Lall The vulgar dissonance that has characterized the Berbice Bridge from its conception, birth, and now sickly if not obese presence continues.  Dissonance is being polite; it is more like river-crossing robbery; in reality the political precursor and equivalent to the piracy on the high seas further pass that same bridge.  Now in the ongoing frenzies of cleverness, ...

OPINION: I support government’s temporary takeover of the Berbice Bridge

By GHK Lall I must go against the grain and embrace a contrarian position.  It is the extreme position of agreeing fully with government’s “temporary takeover” of the Berbice Bridge.  In so doing, I think it signals the administration’s impatience and disgust with the commercial hustlers of another era, who with the colluding and blessing of supportive political leadership ripped ...

OPINION: Guyana’s brain has little to nothing left to drain

By GHK Lall There was this troubling article titled, “Guyana’s brain drain at worrying levels -US State Dept. highlights shortage of even semi-skilled individuals” (KN October 20) that brought to a halt.  Though this supports existing private assessments, I do not think that the headline tells the whole story, the embarrassing story of how bad things really are. The Guyana ...
