A luta continua!

first_imgDear Editor,The post-judgement rulings of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) were surprising for their brevity. After six months of legal proceedings, all the CCJ felt was required by way of consequential orders was to read aloud Article 106 of the Guyana Constitution and remind that it is clear and then further point out the provisions that apply. “These provisions need no gloss on the part of the Court to render them intelligible and workable. Their meaning is clear and it is the responsibility of constitutional actors in Guyana to honour them,” Saunders said.By its use of the word ‘clear’, I believe the CCJ has erred grievously. There are two schools of thought about the APNU/AFC Government – dense or obtuse. Both of these characterisations face difficulty with the ruling. For the ‘dense’, the CCJ is ascribing an innate intelligence quotient (IQ) to persons occupying Government office; without a modicum of evidence to support such an assessment. Given the level of asininity displayed in public utterances and the submissions made to the Court, one cannot expect anything to be ‘clear’ to such persons. The school of the ‘deliberately obtuse’ suffers even more, for after six months of pretended misunderstanding, the CCJ has simply said ‘read the article, apply the provisions and act with integrity’. This leaves very little room for ‘face-saving’ manoeuvres— a shame-faced acceptance that APNU/AFC has been engaged in delay tactics and will now comply is the best outcome, pariah status and personal sanctions the worst.The CCJ reiterated the No-Confidence Motion was appealed and the three-month time limit will commence from when the CCJ eventually upheld it on June 18, that under the Constitution, after a No-Confidence Motion is passed by the National Assembly, the President and Cabinet must immediately resign but the Government is allowed to stay in place in a caretaker role until the fresh election is completed within three months. Compliance with Article 106 of the Constitution. Clear enough?Editor, Unlike the Judges of the CCJ, I harbour no illusions about APNU/AFC IQ’s and have furthered girded my loins for the struggle ahead. APNU/AFC are stupid or playing stupid, either way— a luta continua!Yours truly,Gomati Kalicharranlast_img read more

Tottenham’s defence leaves Mourinho sympathising with his forwards

first_imgScoring goals, however, has not been a problem with the likes of England’s Harry Kane and South Korea star Son Heung-min in fine form.Spurs, however, remain five points off the top four heading into their New Year’s Day clash away to Southampton.“The problem is the way we concede the goals and the way we play,” Mourinho said on Tuesday.“But we have to improve. We concede too many goals and it is very frustrating.”The Portuguese added: “If I was one of my attacking players I would be very frustrated that behind we are not able to stop it.”Nevertheless, the former Chelsea and Manchester United manager insisted he had no intention of spending his way out of Spurs’ defensive problems in the upcoming transfer window.“January we have a little bit more time to work and with work we are going to try to improve,” he said.Tottenham face a tricky trip to a revitalised Southampton but they have at least gone some way to curing their trave sickness, having not won on the road since January prior to his arrival.“Four matches away, we won two, we drew one and we lost one,” he said.“Is that better than before? Yes. Is it perfect? No.“So it is frustrating, but it is also a great feeling to know that the team never gives up, it is also a great feeling to know that even in the most difficult circumstances we go and we go and we go.“I want to praise that fantastic spirit.”Spurs will be without left-back Danny Rose, who could be sidelined for at least two more weeks with a muscle injury, but both Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko are available after suspension.Mourinho, asked how long Rose would remain out of action, replied: “I don’t know. I would guess, but maybe I am wrong, a couple of weeks.“But honestly I cannot tell you. We have Winks and Sissoko back from suspension and I don’t think we are going to have anyone back from injuries,” he added.0Shares0000(Visited 24 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000No case for the defence – Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho © AFP / Lindsey ParnabyLONDON, United Kingdom, Jan 1 – Tottenham Hotspur’s leaky defence has left Jose Mourinho admitting he feels frustrated on behalf of the club’s forwards.Tottenham’s bid for a top four place in the Premier League has been hampered by several poor displays at the back since Mourinho took over the north London outfit in October.last_img read more

DONEGAL MAN PLEADS GUILTY TO PLOT TO KILL TRAINEE PSNI OFFICER IN NORTH

first_imgBREAKING NEWS: By our Belfast Daily Staff: A County Donegal man has today pleaded guilty to charges relating to a plot to kill a student PSNI officer in the North.Letterkenny man  Gerard James McManus is a former Irish soldier and was one of two gunmen caught while attempting to murder a student policeman in the border town of Garrison, Co Fermanagh, four years ago.He pleaded guilty last November to using a gun to resist his arrest. Today he and Kevin Barry Nolan both pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life and possession of articles likely to be of use to terrorists.Attempted murder charges were left on the books and not to be proceeded with without leave of the crown court or court of appeal.Nolan, (35) of Main Street, Blacklion, and 28-year-old McManus were detained during an undercover police operation at the time in November 2009.Although no details surrounding the shooting or their arrests were given to the Crown Court, during a series of Magistrates’ Courts sittings, they heard that McManus and Nolan claimed they had no intention of shooting the trainee officer, only to scare him. They were allegedly spotted in a Vauxhall Astra approaching home before police moved in.McManus, wearing a balaclava went to the front door, while Nolan remained in the front passenger seat of the Astra, where he was later arrested, allegedly sitting on a magazine, loaded with 16 rounds for a Glock pistol.McManus escaped, running down the side of the house firing off a shot. He was apprehended at 8am the following day, in a garden shed and while a mask and gloves were found in the shed, no gun was recovered.During interview both men maintained they had no intention of harming the student police officer. McManus told detectives: “There was no way I was going to shoot him …..I was going to fire a couple of shots in the air….to scare him, wanted to terrify him like.”In his interviews Nolan, whose alleged role was to give McManus directions, claimed that as far as he was concerned: “No harm was going to be caused,” and that firing the gun was to, “put the frighteners on him”.Sentencing in the case was adjourned.DONEGAL MAN PLEADS GUILTY TO PLOT TO KILL TRAINEE PSNI OFFICER IN NORTH was last modified: January 27th, 2014 by John2Share 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:FermanaghletterkennyMCMANUSmurder bidlast_img read more

“We must all oppose plans to mine in Donegal,” says Councillor

first_imgA Donegal county councillor has urged the public to oppose mining in the county.Cllr Michael Mac Giolla Easbuig urged people to object to plans for four prospecting licences for four parts of the county.He said the possibility that Great Glen Resources might be granted licenses to mine for gold, silver and other minerals in Donegal is a cause for great concern. He said “Mining for minerals can be a catastrophe for the local environment. Water sources are exposed to contamination and huge volumes of water are consumed to extract minerals from the base rock.“Noxious chemicals are also involved in the extraction process. In the case of mining for gold and silver, for example, tons of cyanide are used to separate the minerals from the rocks which contain the minerals.“In the case of Donegal, the situation is made much more dangerous by the presence of high levels of radon in the rocks. If drilling through these rocks was to happen, the radon gas would be dispersed into the air with no way of knowing where it would contaminate.“There is no doubt in my mind that mineral extraction under these conditions would benefit nobody except the shareholders of Great Glen Resources, who don’t have to live with the consequences of their exploration.” He added that he will work with other councillors to oppose the granting of licenses to mining companies in the county.But he said the community needs to organise themselves to stand against mining in their area.“We only have to look across the border to the community in the Sperrins in County Tyrone to see how effective community action can be in mobilising and putting pressure on local representatives to support them in their opposition to mining in their area.“We can also look back to the early 80s when the Donegal community successfully opposed uranium mining in the same areas that are being suggested now.Together we can win. Oppose mining in Donegal,” he said.“We must all oppose plans to mine in Donegal,” says Councillor was last modified: June 9th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare 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:donegalMININGOPPOSITIONlast_img read more

Relaunch of Men’s Shed Carn aims to attract new members

first_imgMen’s Shed Carn is inviting men and women of all ages from the Carndonagh area to come along to the ‘relaunch’ of their community-based initiative later this month.The aim of the Men’s Shed relaunch or ‘Open Night’, which will take place at the Old Co-op Moville Road premises from 7pm to 9pm on Thursday, September 26, is to provide information on the exciting range of activities, projects and courses on offer at the Shed from October onwards and to encourage those in attendance to sign up or become new members.It will also aim to hear the views of the local community on what activities and projects they would like to see offered in the Shed. Conor Doherty, Chairperson of Men’s Shed Carn project, said: “Ever since the award-winning DJ and local celebrity Michelle Doherty gave the ‘thumbs up’ to our project at the official launch in 2012, our renovated premises at the Old Co-op Moville Road has represented an important ‘community hub’ for men in the local area.“Indeed, this project has been a fantastic initiative aimed at helping tackle social isolation and promote the health and wellbeing of local men – in particular in the years following the recession and economic downturn when employment was scarce or non-existent.“Importantly, the Men’s Shed Carn project has always had an ‘open door’ policy since its inception – providing local men (school leavers, employed, unemployed or indeed retired) with a welcoming and supportive environment where they have been able to immerse themselves in projects or expend their energies with a great sense of ‘togetherness’.“However, whilst unemployment was rife in 2012 when our project began, in more recent years we have seen an upturn in the economy with many of our members finding employment or moving elsewhere. “Though we are delighted with this success for individual members it has meant that the number of members has reduced, and we are now keen to reinvigorate the Shed and do all that we can to attract new and former members – widening the scope of projects and training opportunities to a much broader audience.“As part of an ongoing review, we have therefore agreed that both men and women are now welcome to join and become members of the Shed. Indeed, this follows on from a successful furniture restoration course over the last 4 or 5 years which was also attended by 9 local women – and which worked out very well and was truly beneficial for all involved.“Also as part of our new review, we have agreed that local farmers will be a key target audience in our future attempts to attract new members and to serve a wider, more diverse community.“Indeed, some of our members are retired business owners, school teachers and professionals who gain a lot from participation and membership of the Shed.“It is important to highlight that the Shed is not just for people who want to want to make things – but offers a whole lot more! “I would, therefore, welcome men and women – both young and old – from the wider Carndonagh area to come along to the ‘Open Night’ where we’ll be providing further information on our wide-ranging activities, projects and courses at the Shed.”The Men’s Shed Carn project is supported by Inishowen Development Partnership (IDP) and had been supported by Donegal ETB for some of its courses over the years. Another important supporter of the shed in the Inishowen Co-op, in whose premises the shed has operated since its inception.Inishowen Development Partnership’s Community Development and Education Officer, Denise McCool, added: “IDP have been really delighted to support the Men’s Shed Carn project since its inception in 2012 – not least in terms of their aim to help alleviate social isolation for men in the Carndonagh area and to promote health and wellbeing.“The success of this project and its positive impacts are clearly evident in the palpable sense of ‘togetherness’, ‘companionship’ and ‘connection’ created by and between the men. “This initiative has also given the men a real sense of purpose – as well as an enhanced confidence with their participation in many of the educational and training courses funded through IDP or the ETB.  Not only that, but the men involved have also given so much back to their local community, often unseen and unsung deeds.“I would, therefore, encourage as many people as possible to come along to the ‘Open Night’ on Thursday 26 September.“There’ll also be information on the night about the new opening hours of the Shed as well as further details on upcoming courses including health & safety, furniture restoration and computing.“Some of the musicians and members from the newly-established Music Night will also be performing on the night and refreshments will be provided!“It promises to be a great evening in support of what is a wonderful community-based project led by the men themselves – and which aims to see both men and women from our local area joining and becoming new members.“We would also ask people from the local area interested in finding out more about the Shed – as well as other community groups – to come along to support this valuable local initiative.“Indeed, we’re very excited about the future direction of the Shed and truly feel it offers a wide range of activities, projects and courses for many more people in the community.”The new opening times for the Men’s Shed Carn are as follows: Monday – Music Night 8-11pmTuesday – 10am-12noon & 7:30-9:30pm (for the furniture restoration course from October 1st 2019)Wednesday – 10am-12noonThursday – 10am-12noon & 1:30-4pmFriday – 10am-1pm & the Cards Night 8-10:30pmRelaunch of Men’s Shed Carn aims to attract new members was last modified: September 14th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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)last_img read more
