Shadow Oil and Gas Minister, David Patterson has accused the Peoples Progressive Party (PPP) of forcing the critical National Resources Fund (NRF) Bill into legislation, so as to quickly access the fund.

The NRF is one of the latest Bills laid in the National Assembly and outlines the way in which the earnings from oil and gas production are to be spent. In fact, the Bill was tabled only on December 16 and is slated to be debated on December 29 and passed. There have been calls for the proposed legislation to be discarded even as some asked that it be sent to a special select committee as is done with complex bills.

Guyanese Celebrating Christmas Down Under — by Francis Quamina Farrier

Tony Philips

It has always been said that wherever you go, you will find a Guyanese. That is a fact in many cities in far-away Australia. There are Guyanese residing in Sydney, Perth and Melbourne among other locations in Australia. I contacted the celebrated artist Tony Phillips who is based in Melbourne and found out how he and other Guyanese are celebrating the Festive Season 2021, even as the COVID-19 pandemic is still swirling around the world, including Australia..

For Tony Phillips himself, 2021 was a great year. He enjoyed much better health than was the case in 2020, and he continues to produce profitably with his work as an artist. During the year, Tony Phillips also published a book. Entitled “The Nation Builders – A Dome Mural in Guyana” the book is enhanced with many photographs which highlight the images of the celebrities which are painted in the dome of the Guyana Bank for Trade and Industry on Water Street, Georgetown. Those images were painted by Tony Phillips and his Queens College colleague, Stanley Greaves, since the bank was known as Barclays Bank, during the British colonial era.
