The burning question is who is next? No one is apparently safe anymore.

 

What is certain is that in 23 years of Government not one Opposition political figure of any worth was charged under the PPP/Civic administration. In two months, 2 have been charged under the Coalition Government. Certainly, more will be. There is no doubt in my mind that democracy is under threat and authoritarianism is on the rise. When Opposition political leaders are dealt with by the State in this fashion one can only imagine what will be unleashed on the ordinary citizen in due course. The media has an important role to play. The sooner it purges itself of political jaundice the better for democracy and indeed Guyana

parsing, parsing . . .

 

being a Big One MUST have its privileges damnit! or "democracy under threat"

 

uh huh, consiglieri
