Acting Chief Justice Roxane George-Wiltshire today ruled that the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) endorsed the recount of votes and that the ten old declarations cannot be “resurrected”.

This finding was a major defeat in the latest attempt by an APNU+AFC supporter to prevent a declaration of a result based on the recount results.

Guyanese Online: Daily Entries Restarted on June 1. 2020

Hello Everyone:

As Publisher and Editor of Guyanese Online I have decided to RESTART ENTRIES to the blog website.

Mail-outs to the database listing the Latest Entries will also be restarted…. on a weekly basis.

During the two months that we ceased daily entries we still averaged over 1200 views daily, due to the varied content in over 13,400 entries.

In my comments at the end of March I noted that the COVID-19 virus would last for months and would be economically disastrous. No one knows when it would end and what the eventual fallout will be.  I will be posting a number of articles on this.

The Guyana political situation is still in limbo. I am sure everyone is following the latest news in the daily newspapers. 

Thank you for visiting the website, and a special thank you to those who have helped financially to keep this website online.

 

Regards,

Cyril Bryan. Editor/ Publisher

An Obituary..for COMMON SENSE – London Times UK

An Obituary..for COMMON SENSE.

— Absolutely Dead Brilliant!!

 ….printed in the London Times. UK.

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, COMMON SENSE, who has been with us for many years.

No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:

– Knowing when to come in out of the rain;
– Why the early bird gets the worm;
– Life isn’t always fair;
– And maybe it was my fault.      Continue reading

Opinion: REFLECTION BEFORE RESOLUTION in 2020 — By Yvonne Sam

–By Yvonne Sam

Soon we will be arriving at the end of the year.  The end of the decade. The end of the first 20 years of the twenty first century.  On a cautionary note, before venturing into the realm of New Year resolutions, let us painstakingly reflect on what has come about so far in this century, for evil and for good.

First on the list is the explosion of social media. Which human being would have presaged that such a thing would literally change not only how we interact, but most of all how we live our lives?  Social media has quickened the flow of information around the world, and not necessarily for the better. Lies, distortions, innuendos, and personal hatred are spread just as rapidly (if not more so) than truth and facts.        Continue reading

The Excitement and the Anticipation of the Year to Come – By Yvonne Sam

  By Yvonne Sam

What can you do on the first day of a New Year that you were not capable of twelve months ago?

The great Roman Stoic Philosopher Epictetus cautioned that as humans we cannot control events but we can certainly control our attitudes towards them. While many look forward to a brand New Year, others still think back to the ones that have passed. As a consequence, New Year’s Eve becomes a time for both sensations—the excitement and anticipation of the year to come, and the nostalgic wistful memories of years gone by. Midnight on New Year’s Eve is a unique kind of magic.      Continue reading
