UK: King Charles’s speech left Tories squirming: he preached the values they’ve abandoned

King Charles lll

King Charles lll

Lauding public sector and voluntary workers, he evoked the compassionate conservatism the government has expunged from its ranks and rhetoric.

Do people still rise out of their Christmas Day torpor to listen to the monarch’s message to the nation at 3pm? It used to be the one immutable point of the day: the only time in the year when the Queen – and it was always the Queen in living memory – spoke directly to the nation in her own words, unscripted by ministers. Yet its familiarity and – let’s face it – frequent vacuousness make it feel less relevant or significant to many these days.

Although in her later years the Queen often used the broadcast to speak movingly of her own faith, she steered, you might say religiously, clear of politics. But was there a slight tremor of difference this year in the new king’s lauding of public sector staff and voluntary workers – those who help at food banks and deliver aid to disaster zones across the world?    Continue reading

GUYANA: Masquerade Gaff- A Conversation with William ‘Billy’ Pilgrim and I – By Ian E. Harris + video

  Dec 25, 2022 Kaieteur News – By Ian E. Harris

“Christmas comes but once a year
And everyone must have his share
But poor Brother Willy in the jail
Drinking sour ginger beer!

It happened one cold, overcast, December Friday some years ago in the then Invaders Steel Orchestra Pan Yard which was located on Charlotte Street.

William ‘Billy’ Pilgrim, now deceased, was at that time, the band’s Arranger and he was very good at what he did. Most people referred to him as a Musical Maestro as he was one of Guyana’s and the Region’s Cultural Icons. In fact, he was a Musical Composer and a Former Director of Music. He told us all when he first came into the pan yard as Arranger, to simply call him Billy. Ever since that day, that is how we always referred to him.          Continue reading

GUYANA: The Guyana Police Force : Remuneration and corruption

Guyana Police Force Badge

By EDITORIAL: Stabroek News – December 6, 2022

Last week’s public disclosure of the emoluments of policemen and women evoked some level of public ‘hum.’ Comments focused mostly on what was felt to be the paltriness of the remuneration.  Some of the discussants wondered aloud as to whether the salaries afforded those cops on the lower rungs of the ladder, particularly, do not, in fact, contextualize embedded allegations of corrupt practices in the Force.

The argument that salary levels ought not to be posited as justification (or explanation) for the perpetration of practices that bring the Force into disrepute will always hold a generous measure of weight. One of the responses to that argument has been that functionaries who fall into the categories of Public Servants (and the Police are, in effect, Public Servants) have all, traditionally, found themselves in the same circumstance as far as emoluments are concerned but that not everyone had yielded to the temptation to subsidize their incomes through the pursuit of unwholesome options.      Continue reading

GUYANA: Is the US becoming impatient with Guyana?

By Ralph Ramkarran – Conversation Tree Blog

November 13, 2022 – Stabroek News. Guyana

Why is it necessary for the US Ambassador, Her Excellency Sarah Ann Lynch, to again call for inclusion, long term growth for all nationals and legislation against corruption? Ambassador Lynch’s remarks on the Wilson Centre’s Plaza Centre podcast titled “Guyana’s ‘oil Rush” were reported by Demerara Waves on 9 November.

Ambassador Lynch is reported to have said: “It is an ethnically divided society and so they need to focus on inclusion and there have been many efforts to do so far but they will need to continue to do that at an increased pace.”

In relation to economic growth the Ambassador said: “…we are encouraging them to focus on efforts that will create sustainable growth for the entire country no matter ethnicity, no matter race, no matter gender, no matter geography…” This implies that such a focus does not exist.        Continue reading

ANNOUNCEMENT – Re Guyanese Online

Due to my illness, and weak state, I was unable to use my computer to respond to comments.


First of all I must apologize to my readers for not communicating with them earlier. Due to my illness, and weak state, I was unable to use my computer to respond to comments.  Today is my first day back on my computer.

I have been in hospital for the last 80+ days. At one time it looked like I was no more of this world.

I am now in rehab and should be out in a few days.

About a month ago an announcement was made that I had died and that Guyanese Online was no longer being published. I know that this news upset many family and friends and I deeply regret that it was made.

This statement is only partially correct. I am alive and we are now working on the continuation of  Guyanese Online… maybe in a different format……. or a different editor………

I look forward to talking with you soon. Help with Guyanese Online will be greatly appreciated.

Guyanese Online Entries: ON VACATION — until mid August

Hello Readers:

This is just a short note to let you know that Guyanese Online will not be publishing and new entries until around mid August.

We will keep you informed.

All the best!

Cyril Bryan.
