…doodyIn Guyana, there’s an old, if earthy, saying that pithily summarises what’s going on today in our dear old mudland: “Takin’ yuh doody and daubin’ it pon yuh mattie backside!” How else can you describe the PNC saying that for not returning to the National Assembly and agreeing to an extension of time for elections, the PPP’s breaching the Constitution!!Yep!! That’s what they said…and you can read all about it in Nagamootoo’s column and editorial in the Chronic. One wonders if this version of “33 not the majority of 65” originated with him. After all, he keeps insisting he’s a fiction writer – and even put his efforts in the same sentence mentioning the departure of the great Toni Morrison!!Does he think this will get him the nod over Ramjattan as the PM footstool for the PNC in the next elections?But what about his reaction right after the passage of the no-confidence motion back in Dec 21 2018? Didn’t he say his government would have to resign within three months to comply with Art 106 (6)? Didn’t he say, “Guyanese must understand that the democratic process is sometimes unpredictable. You may have results that are not planned for…but the outcome has to be accepted… It may be a surprise to some, it may be a shock to others; it may be welcomed by some, and others may rejoice over the results, but that is how democracy works, and we are fully committed to the rule of law”?Didn’t he plead, “We want our people to maintain the peace, the good order, the stability of our country. We want nothing to happen in our society that will affect the stability and peace, and we want nothing to happen that will affect the business community in this particular period that you have bright business”? And now he’s demanding that it’s the PPP’s duty to return to Parliament and extend the time Government has already stolen? Even though the society is tense and business sucks?So how’d they arrive at this oxymoron?? The PNC and Nagamootoo insist that Art 106 (6) and 106 (7) must be read together. Okay so far. But where they veer off into la-la land is when they insist that the observation in Art 106 (7), that the 3 months’ deadline of 106 (6) CAN be extended by a two-thirds majority vote, places a DUTY on the PPP to lend them their votes to get that majority!!So they breach their Constitutional obligations by remaining in office beyond the allowed 3 months, and the PPP’s in breach if they don’t go along??Is Nagamootoo back to imbibing bush rum from Whim??…with the race brushThe PNC machinery is in high gear, daubing this newspaper with the race brush because it cited concerns that the Haitians pouring through Guyana might pose health risks. The Chronic reported NY Caribbean-descended lawmakers that such was the case.But what’s so “racist” about raising these concernsWhen, according to SN, “Mabaruma Mayor Henry Smith yesterday warned that a health crisis may be looming in Region One, given the large number of Venezuelans who are illegally crossing the border”?? Was he being racist?? When the PNC-appointed REO seconded this stance, was he being racist?? Or is it that “racism” is okay if it’s against Venezuelan Amerindians?The Ministry of Health agreed that these Haitian health concerns were “reasonable”. Were they racist??On the concerns about cholera…doesn’t the bacteria survive in the infected for long periods?? Couldn’t they be transmitted to others who use overcrowded toilet facilities in the hotel rooms they’re herded into? Is it unreasonable that, apart from demanding cash, sex might be demanded from AIDS infected Haitian women?The race card is being used to muzzle valid concerns.…the victimsThe Chronic also ran a human-interest piece about residents of Buxton reflecting on the killings and mayhem in their village. One called for a “COI” into the events – as did Jagdeo.So why’s the PNC refusing?
Dear Editor,The plight of Guyanese continues to escalate to a level that is quite unbearable, while this APNU/AFC coalition Government refuses to resolve these issues. Most persons who voted for this coalition Government are awaiting the “good life”, promised by this Government, and it must be noted that only the ‘cabal’ of the APNU/AFC is enjoying the ‘good life’ in Guyana.The ‘good life’ that is being created for the APNU/AFC cabal and the fright of losing it is the sole reason why David Granger refuses to announce a date for the Regional and General Elections that has been constitutionally due since March 21, 2019, while the farce of House-to-House Registration is being used to delay the elections. David Granger should be held responsible for the disrespect of the Constitution and stifling of democracy.The situation in Region Five where an elected tier of Government is being allowed to be trampled upon by David Granger and his APNU/AFC coalition since its formation in 2015 can be considered an ideal example to convince Guyanese that David Granger is not a ‘Church Boy’, for democracy but an individual who joined with the forces to ensure that democracy continues to be disregarded.As Guyanese, we must not allow David Granger and his cabal to derail democracy in Guyana but ensure that we stand up against any individual or forces that would try to trample upon democracy.Regards,Zamal Hussain
At least 250 former footballers have been diagnosed with serious degenerative brain conditions in recent years and PFA chief executive Gordon Taylor says football’s governing body should consider following the example of the United States, where children 12 or younger are already banned from heading.“I think that has to be a serious consideration. It is not a knee-jerk reaction,”PFA chief executive Gordon Taylor told the Daily Telegraph on Friday.“It would be a considered reaction bearing in mind evidence that has been coming through from different sports and to a limited extent in football.“There have been rule changes for youngsters about pitches they play on, about the numbers in the game, about whether or not girls should be involved with boys and up to what age.“It is very much in line with that. We don’t want to put off the next generation but we need to be very mindful. The game needs to have a duty of care to all its participants.”Former West Bromwich Albion and England star Jeff Astle died in 2002 from a brain trauma caused by heading the heavy leather footballs used when he played the 1960s and 1970s.And the issue has become even more of a concern in recent years despite the change to lighter balls.The Stirling study reported a reduction in memory performance of 41-67 per cent in the 24 hours after players headed a football 20 times.Memory function did return to normal 24 hours later but the call for urgent and more detailed research is likely to grow louder following the report.Dr Willie Stewart collaborated on the research and told the Telegraph “It stunned me that just a single session of practice – nothing untoward, nothing out of the ordinary – could produce that immediate change.“I did not expect to see any real changes to the brain. My jaw hit the table when I looked at the results.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Heading a football could cause memory problems for 24 hours, according to a new study © AFP / Hector RetamalLONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 30 – The Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) has urged the English Football Association to ban children under 10 heading balls amid growing fears of brain injuries.A new study from the University of Stirling found heading a ball could cause memory problems for 24 hours and experts want to study the implications for younger players whose brains are still developing.
