President Granger should retake the reins and stop the runaway carriage

first_imgDear Editor,Notice was served by the Guyana Wildlife Commission that the hunting season for wild birds has been closed effective January 1, 2019; ironically, at the same time newsourcegy.com was announcing the opening of the electoral silly season with the melodramatic story of Charrandas Persaud’s attempts to procure undiluted cassareep. Editor, if the opening salvoes are anything to go by, we are in for a bumpy ride in a jet plane filled with gold bars and sacks of cash (another patently false and ridiculous story). My very real fear is that one of these silly season stories will set off a wildfire that is not as easily extinguishable.Editor, how can we expect a population divided by 32.5 to recognise truth in a sky full of wild noises? What do we do when, not if, the messages are crafted to incite emotional and violent responses? The desperation of the Granger Administration to cling onto power at the expense of the Constitution is painful to watch, they continue to craft their own noose and ignore the calls to put down the rope, the longer they grasp at fanciful theories of plus ones and Canadian citizenships, the tighter it will gnaw at their necks and the more desperate they will become. The Administration cannot label all who are  advising them to respect the Constitution as ‘opposition elements’, Lincoln Lewis, Christopher Ram, Guyana Bar Association, David Hinds, Ralph Ramkarran and others are among the fairest of civil society commentators, please note that I have not mentioned anyone aligned with the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) on that list, in fact this list can be taken as a Who’s Who of persons who also held the feet of successive PPP administrations to the fire.Sun Tzu, the famous Chinese military strategist advises “never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake”; however, Martin Carter, our own Guyanese treasure said of politics “all are involved!  all are consumed!” and I side with our own in recognising that we are not in a war, we are at the end of the day, all citizens of Guyana and the consequences of reckless actions at the top are felt keenly by us at the bottom. Hence, I raise my voice for the people and once again urge President Granger to retake the reins and stop the runaway carriage. Serve notice that the silly season is also closed.***You Are Involved***This I have learnt:today a specktomorrow a herohero or monsteryou are consumed!Like a jigshakes the loom.Like a webis spun the patternall are involved!all are consumed!— Martin Carter,from Poems of Resistance from British GuianaRespectfully,Robin Singhlast_img read more

Senators Back on Capitol Hill

first_imgNormal official activities returned to the Capitol Building Tuesday, August 5, following a two-week break that afforded Senators to return to their counties for observance of the annual July 26 Independence Day festivities, which had officially been expected to take place in Sinoe and Grand Kru counties.The celebration of the Independence Day in those counties was postponed to 2015, due to deplorable road conditions.The Senators were also expected to use the break to carry on awareness and sensitization campaigns on the Ebola epidemic.In preparation for the Senators’ return, the Capitol Building like all Government structures, Monday went through a thorough day-long spraying of offices and the grounds.Early last week, the leaderships of the two Houses asked hundreds of their non-essential staff to go home and stay away from the Capitol Building.According to the decision, those asked to go home will be paid their regular salaries during their leave of absence.The secretariat of the Liberian Senate described the leadership’s decision as a precautionary measure instituted in line with the Government of Liberia’s fight against the spread of the Ebola epidemic.The Senate secretariat said only lawmakers and key essential staffers, including Directors, Chiefs of Staff and executive secretaries would be allowed to enter the premises of the Capitol Building during the period of closure, while serious preventive hygienic measure were being executed.Due to the seriousness attached to the Legislature’s decision, it was decided that during the closure of the building, only the front gate to the Capitol would be opened.It may be recalled that on the eve of their departure for the Independence break on July 22, 2014, the Senators concurred with a House of Representatives’ Resolution that funds earmarked for the official celebrations of the Independence Day in Sinoe and Grand Kru Counties, be used in the fight to stop the spread of Ebola.However, the uncontrollable debate that ensued prior to the concurrence vote forced Senate Pro Tempore Gbehzohngar Findley to use his gavel several times for order, and only returned when he decided to fine seven lawmakers US$10 each, accompanied with stern warning that he would throw out any Senator that acted rude.”“If you act rude, I will throw you out. Don’t take it for joke; I am not joking.  People are dying all over the country and you people are taking it for joke,” an enraged Pro Tempore Findley thundered. Meanwhile, Gbarpolu Senior Senator J.S.B. Theodore Momo has described as successful the awareness and sensitization campaign in his county.Senator Momo told this newspaper that up to the time he left Gbarpolu Monday, there was no report of new Ebola cases in that part of the country.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Man threatens to bomb Garda station and kill all in it

first_imgA man threatened to “bomb Milford Garda Station” and “kill all the Gardai in it.”Seamus McBride of 17 Moyle View, Milford appeared at Letterkenny District Court after an incident at the defendant’s family home on March 21 last year. Garda Sgt Jim Collins said the defendant’s brother contacted gardai to say the defendant was causing a disturbance.When gardai arrived, the defendant was standing by the fireplace and shouting aggressively at the mirror.He became more agitated when gardai arrived and shouted profanities at them.Gardai said it was clear that the defendant was under the influence of “some sort of intoxicant”.He was handcuffed and refused to get into the patrol car, placing his feet firmly on the ground. He then said he would “bomb Milford Garda Station and kill all the gardai in it”.On arrival at the station, the defendant continued to be aggressive and refused to sit down. He then proceeded to spit directly into the face of Garda Dempsey with his saliva going into the garda’s eyes, nose and mouth. He also spat in the face of Sergeant McGee.The court heard that McBride has a number of previous convictions and had been bound to keep the peace for a period of two years on June 18 last year.He has since written a letter of apology to the gardai involved which Sergeant Collins said has been “noted and accepted”.Solicitor for the defendant, Mr Gordon Curley, said his client accepted that his behaviour was “shocking and disgusting”.He said the 29-year-old had suffered with drug and alcohol addiction and had completed a programme at Whiteoaks rehabilitation centre. At the time of this incident he suffered a relapse brought about by the break-up of his relationship.“He is ashamed of his actions and is now back on the right track. He has not come to the adverse attention of gardai since this incident,” added Mr Curley.He also told the court that McBride has since moved out of the Milford area and spends his time between Ramelton and Creeslough.Judge Kelly noted the defendant has an “unfortunate record for a similar type of behaviour”.He adjourned matters until October 14 to allow for the preparation of a Community Service Suitability and other relevant reports from the Probation and Welfare Service.Man threatens to bomb Garda station and kill all in it was last modified: June 18th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:bombcourtGarda stationMilfordthreatslast_img read more

The message on the tweet read “Hopefully cult politics doesn’t make a comeback.” Another twitter user responded, “think it was a spelling mistake” to which Mr Flanagan replied: “Yep, left out the ‘n’ ”.It was understood that it was intended as a half-joke or a smart comment to Mr MacLochlainn’s tweet and a string of provocative tweets from Sinn Féin supporters and others. However, his linking of the word ‘cult’ with the similar rude ‘c’ word, provoked a flurry of protest on Twitter that continued into New Year’s Day.Today the Minister apologised.  SHOCK AS MINISTER CHARLIE FLANAGAN CALLS DONEGAL TD C*** ON TWITTER was last modified: January 1st, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:APOLOGYCharlie FlanaganPadraig MacLochlainn TDSinn Feinlast_img read more
