first_imgDear Editor,Guyana, today, is a house divided because politicians are waging a war for the survival of democracy. One party, the PNC/R, is certainly not playing by the rule of law and with some success, they have been allowed by the custodians of the law to get away with this abhorrent behaviour. The PNC/R has been successful at delaying the elections by six months, using the court system, along with heavy doses of subterfuge and deception. This trickery continues.Today, Mr Keith Lowenfield and his team have embarked upon a process, using an expired ruling from an expired Chairman who was appointed by a “flawed” appointment process. On both previous occasions that I am aware that Guyana had a House-to-House Registration (H2H) process, it took 18 months and to sell the idea that it can be done in 6 months is just plain underhand.Even if Mr Lowenfield puts 30,000 enumerators on the ground, he and I both know it is impossible to deliver a clean voters’ list by December 25, 2019, using the H2H process. One can only now hope that the new GECOM Chairperson – who was not appointed by a “flawed” process – will self-correct the wayward ways of GECOM swiftly and put this organisation back on the legitimate path by adhering to the rule of law as advised by the CCJ.But what Mr David Granger is doing has brought out into the open what we all have known for years. His Party (the PNC/R) is exclusively focused on advancing the cause of a group of an urban elites that cares very little for the working class, especially those in the rural communities. The rest of the nation is even lower down in the chain of importance.This elite cabal of PNC “upper crust” is prepared to suppress the rest of the nation using any means necessary and this situation was brought out in the open when the caretaker Attorney General made his speech at the AmCham debates. His statement as quoted in the press “‘Well, y’all go, go to the election’, because the consequences would be dire”.That statement among some others he made at that forum brought back bitter memories of the “MO FIYA, SLOW FIYA” period that was launched by the PNC/R leadership against Guyana in the 1990s. This is the same old PNC, their modus operandi is simple, bamboozle the nation into submission and plunder the Treasury.Think of this, one minister brought in a vehicle that has a calculated duty of over G$60 million? That is more than the salary that he has earned from his job in the last 4 years.But this was no different from what the PNC did in 1992 when they were transitioning out of office after losing those elections. Their scorch-Earth strategy is the same. They slash and burn every part of the Treasury, wantonly leaving nothing standing after they have left.This is the time to all remain calm and vigilant. This is the time for sharing of information on social media so that the world can tighten the noose around those who are prepared to break the rule of law to advance their unrighteous cause. Time and history are on the side of those who are prepared to follow the rule of law but unfortunately, they have their head so deeply buried in the miasma that they cannot see that their end is near.Regards,Sasenarine Singh,MSc Finance, ACCAlast_img read more

first_img Kirland worked with Pickford during the then-21-year-old’s loan at Preston – where he was their No.1 for a season The ex-Liverpool and Wigan glovesman has urged people to understand the weight on Pickford’s shoulders at the World Cup and get behind him, instead of scrutinise his every mistake.“It’s laughable some of this criticism Jordan has got, especially from former pros who are not even goalkeepers but are sounding like the best goalkeeper coaches in the world,” Kirkland added.“We all know Gary Neville has never liked goalkeepers – he seems to know a lot more about goalkeepers than us.“The criticism Jordan faced is very harsh.“He is a young lad and he is under huge pressure being England’s number one at a World Cup. 3 Former England goalkeeper Chris Kirkland has backed under-fire Jordan Pickford and has branded Chelsea glovesman Thibaut Courtois ‘a disgrace’ for his comments about the Three Lions number one.Pickford was criticised for his performance in England’s 1-0 World Cup defeat to Belgium, which saw Gareth Southgate’s men finish runners up in Group G.Courtois joked about the Everton man being too short to save Adnan Januzaj’s winner, saying after the game that he – who is four inches taller at 6ft 5in – ‘would have caught it’. 3 Thibaut Courtois was a ‘a disgrace’ for his comments about Jordan Pickford, says Chris Kirkland center_img Pickford just could’t reach Januzaj’s curling effort in Kaliningrad 3 But Kirkland was not impressed by the Blues star’s jibes and says he broke the ‘goalkeeping code’ by openly slating his counterpart.Speaking to talkSPORT host Jim White, Kirkland said: “It’s a disgrace that Thibaut Courtois has come out and said that – you don’t hammer a fellow goalkeeper, that’s a written rule.“If he has said that then hopefully when he reflects on that he is embarrassed and is ashamed of what he said.”Kirland also pointed the finger at Gary Neville after the former Manchester United and England defender’s ‘harsh’ criticism of Pickford following the Belgium game. “He’s got a huge responsibility on his shoulders, so let’s just get behind him and give him some confidence!“I worked with him for a year at Preston and I know how good he is – he’s one of the best I’ve ever worked with.“He’s a confident lad and I have every confidence he’ll be fine and he’ll have a great game against Colombia.”talkSPORT are with listeners all day and all night at this year’s 2018 FIFA World Cup™ with over 800 hours of World Cup content and all 64 games live across the talkSPORT network.last_img read more

first_imgPADDY MCBREARTY WITH FANS AFTER THE ULSTER TITLE WINDONEGAL’S Patrick McBrearty has turned down lucrative offers to go and play professional Aussie Rules football Down Under.The 19 year old has told a newspaper today that he decided he wanted to continue to play for his county instead.“I sat down with my family a couple of weeks ago and when times are good in Donegal, you want to be a part of it,” he told The Irish Independent. “If I can settle myself here and get a good job and another 10 or 12 years of inter-county football and get a name for myself, I’d be over the moon. We sat down together and Australia is off the cards for the duration of the coming years.”Donegal’s back-to-back Ulster titles certainly helped.“If things weren’t good here, if Donegal weren’t winning Ulster championships and not going for All-Irelands, my mentality might be somewhere else, but fortunately things are good,” he said.“The recession is the last thing on my mind. The talk about money, it’s the last thing on my mind. I just want to enjoy my football and win as many medals as I possibly can.”  REVEALED: PATRICK McBREARTY TURNS DOWN AUSSIE RULES TO PLAY FOR COUNTY was last modified: August 7th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:REVEALED: PATRICK McBREARTY TURNS DOWN AUSSIE RULES TO PLAY FOR COUNTYlast_img read more
