In a recording that has been circulated widely on social media, Jagdeo told an attentive gathering that currently in Guyana, “there’s an assault on our democracy, there’s an assault on people of Indian origin, there’s an assault on supporters of the PPP (People’s Progressive Party).
What we thought would never return to Guyana, in just one short year has returned with full force, and even worse in some regards than the Burnham era.”

He spoke of a state of affairs where people’s transported lands are being “snatched” and “140 new taxes were increased”. This development, he disclosed, has been targeting the rural poor, who are mainly the supporters of the PPP.   Continue reading

USA Elections: The Democratic Party Convention – Day 1: July 25, 2016

Michelle Obama

A tumultuous first day of the Democratic National Convention is in the books. Fix Boss Chris Cillizza watched, tweeted and, candidly, ate and drank. (Hey, it was a long day.)

* Michelle Obama: An absolute home run. Period. It will be difficult for anyone in the next three days to deliver a better speech than the first lady did on Monday night.

Trump vs Clinton

The Republican nominee’s race-based nationalism, his anti-Semitic innuendos, his position on Israel and his attacks on Muslims and immigrants are all deeply offensive. But that’s not what’s panicking most U.S. Jews.

Rabbi Eric H. Yoffie – Haaretz

It is distinctly dispiriting, in my view, to watch our national political life become a giant reality show. For that reason, I am relieved that the Republican National Convention is finally over. It subjected us to an even larger dose of what we have been experiencing since Donald J. Trump entered the presidential race. Many things happened at the convention, but a sober consideration of the issues was not among them.        Continue reading

Earlier this month, Caribbean Community (CARICOM) heads of government met in Georgetown, Guyana. Among the many issues they considered was Britain’s decision to leave the European Union. Their focus was on a secretariat paper largely intended for information.
