U.K.: The American beauty and the British prince are right to want their own fairy tale – By Mohamed Hamaludin

— By MOHAMED HAMALUDIN

A beautiful American actress falls in love with a British prince and he with her. They marry and she becomes a duchess. They have a son and live happily ever after.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex

NOT…….

That is how the story is supposed to end but this is not the typical fairy tale couple. Meghan Markle is part African American and part white and her relationship with Prince Harry has been beset by racism from the beginning. The duchess and her prince have now decided to find their own happily ever after.

Friends introduced Markle, a divorcee and star of the hit television show “Suits,” to Harry, Duke of Sussex and grandson of Queen Elizabeth II, in London, in July 2016. They dated in secret for three months, then became engaged and a statement said the queen and her husband the Duke of Edinburgh “wish them every happiness.”        Continue reading

It would tear asunder “the motley feudal ties that bound man to his ‘natural superiors’”, in the words of “The Communist Manifesto”. It would drown ecstasies of religious fervour and chivalric enthusiasm in the “icy water of egotistical calculation”. And it would subject every national institution to the revolutionary logic of the global market.

So far the British monarchy, one of the last vestiges of the country’s feudal system, has proved a splendid refutation of Marxism. The Crown has survived both the high-noon of Victorian capitalism and the revival of market orthodoxy after 1979.    Continue reading

Nigel Hinds

Hinds notified the public of the decision in a release late yesterday. The accountant cited his current dual citizenship status, revealing that he is a citizen of the United States of America.

Guyana’s Constitution does not allow dual citizens to assume a place in the National Assembly. Up until the December 21, 2018 No Confidence Motion, dual citizens from both major parties (APNU+AFC and PPP/C) had occupied places in the National Assembly, meaning that they had falsely declared themselves to be eligible candidates on their parties’ lists during the previous nomination day exercise leading up to the 2015 General Election.        Continue reading
