Stabroek News’ top story today, February 1, is of yet another allegation of law-breaking at state-owned entities in past years.
Surely the Government cannot go on making public accusations of criminal behaviour without prosecution under the law. Neither can the Opposition’s claims of irregularity in local and national governance be taken seriously if they can defend the Constitution only by press conference. A country ruled by nothing but propaganda wars is going nowhere.
Citizens and voters can’t have the good life through only talk. After 9 months we may only now understand that it takes more time for change than was promised. But our new Parliament is not yet showing results convincing enough for either side to win on propaganda.
At least they can’t say it’s because they’re underpaid.
