…is the Prime Minister in trouble? On December 27th, 2021, political pundits in the English-speaking Caribbean were stunned by a surprising announcement. The larger-than-life and extremely popular Caribbean icon, Mia Mottley, called a snap election. With ginger beer and pepper still on their breath, Barbadians gasped for political air to digest the seeming imposition. What caused the Prime Minister who […]

The Commonwealth Secretary-General Patricia Scotland and a largely governance team recently visited Guyana to have discussions with the government, opposition, Guyana Elections Commission, etc. Surprisingly, what I gather from the media coverage is that her discourse with the government had largely to do with the position her organisation took during the still-disputed 2020 general elections in Guyana. Here, however, I […]

Mr. Hamilton Green, former Prime Minister and Mayor, has for years made the call for a “moral and spiritual revival.” His call remains relevant.

Since the split of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) in the 1950s into the Forbes Burnham and Cheddie Jagan factions there has been a studied and focused strategy to demonise African Guyanese and relegate their contributions to the dustbin of history.
