[www.inewsguyana.com] – People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Parliamentary representative for Region Two, Cornel Damon opened day three of the 2015 budget in a bashing manner as he went into full attack mode against the APNU+AFC administration.

Damon told the National Assembly that the document presented by Finance Minister, Winston Jordan was an “immature budget that failed to inject benefits for the various regions and sectors in Guyana.”

He said too that the budget was “sloppy and useless….I wonder which planet this Honorable Minister came from with this budget and I believe only Houdini could be able to expend it.”

According to the Parliamentarian, from the time that the APNU+AFC coalition was declared victorious at the May 11 polls, the people of Region Two have been “shouting foul.” He called on the new government to adequately address the issue of the rice sector.

“If rice is not addressed now by the government it spells doom for every sector of region three and region two,” said Damon.

He went on to speak about the crime situation currently affecting Guyana, stating that Vice President Khemraj Ramjattan is incapable of effectively tackling the issue.

“It is impossible for the Honorable member of National Security who represented some of the most dangerous criminals to have any control over the crime situation…Ramjattan must go,” he stated.

To put the icing on the cake, Damon made it clear that the PPP is in full support of Bharrat Jagdeo as Opposition Leader. He stated that the Party is “very confident (Jagdeo) will be the next president of Guyana.”

  1. anni, You sound very ignorant. You represent the mindset of so many people in Guyana that is why Guyana did not progress, only Jagdoe and his cronies who lined their pockets mercilessly with the Nation’s wealth . What has Jagdoe’s qualification done for the country in the past years? Ans::Zero. What has Jagdoe qualifications done for him and his cronies? Ans: theft of billions of dollars from the nation’s treasury and deals and the disenfranchisement of the Guyanese people. He needs to get off the bandwagon.

    The current administration’s qualifications are amazing and look what they have done to bring Guyana’s credibility and the progress they have made in the short time they were in office. They saved so many viable Guyana institutions and jobs for so many.

  2. LANCELOT BRASSINGTON MOST OF WHAT YOU SAID DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE WHATSOEVER..FIRSTLY, JAGDEO DOESN’T HAVE TO GO TO A WESTERN UNIVERSITY TO BE A GOOD ECONOMIST .THAT’S A COLONIAL MENTALITY, ONE THAT IS BORN OF MENTAL SLAVERY. AT UNIVERSITIES ALL OVER THE WORLD IT IS A MUST TO STUDY ALL THE ECONOMIC MODELS COUNTRIES USE TO DEVELOP THEIR SOCIETIES. IT IS LEFT TO AN INDIVIDUAL LEADER TO ANALYZIE AND SEE WHICH IS BEST SUITED FOR HIS PARTICULAR COUNTRY . NEXT,ISN’T LEARNING A FOREIGN LANGUAGE SOMETHING BENEFICIAL , SOMETHING USEFUL, SOMETHING DESIRABLE ? COME ON PLEASE TELL ME WHAT IS THE DISADVANTAGE . WITH REGARD TO YOUR ASSESSMENT ON JAGDEO’S PERFORMANCE ON HARD TALK I BEG TO DIFFER WITH YOU. I WOULD SAY HE DID GUYANA PROUD . ALSO LET’S WAIT AND SEE HOW GRANGER WOULD FARE IN ANY INTERVIEW INTERNATIONALLY,A PROGRAMME LIKE BBC. . GREENIDGE HAS ALREADY FAILED AS AN ECOMOMIST WHEN AFTER EIGHT YEARS AS FINANCE MINISTER , HE DECLARED GUYANA BANKRUPT IN 1990- 1991 . YOU DON’T HAVE TO TAKE MY WORD FOR THAT BUT HAVE A LOOK AT HIS LAST BUDGET SPEECH.GUYANA WAS THE MOST PROSPEROUS COUNTRY IN THE CARIBEEAN WHEN DR. JAGAN WAS CHEATED OUT OF OFFICE BUT BECAME THE SECOND POOREST IN THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE AFTER HAITI AT THE END OF THE PNC DICTATORIAL RULE . ON DR. CLIVE THOMAS , I MUST SAY I FEEL SORRY FOR THE GENTLEMAN WHO IS NOW IN THE EVENING OF HIS LIFE. HE IS BEING GIVEN A BASKET TO FETCH WATER .BUT HE HAS NOBODY TO BLAME BUT HIMSELF. TO REDEEM HIMSELF HE HAS TO , HE MUST FIND THE 300 BILLION A YEAR HE DECLARED WAS SIPHONED OFF FROM THE GOVERNMENT BY DR. JAGDEO AND HIS MINISTERS. AND HE DOESN’T HAVE FOREVER TO DO IT.

  3. You need to take a second look at Jagdeos qualification compared to all the ministers u have as incompetent leaders.

  4. Jagdeo the next President…Joey where would he run his presidency from, a USA prison because that where he going after they extradite him for money laundering and drug corruption charges. They already seized both of his planes that he used to transport drug money and illegal drugs between the USA and Guyana.
    Come on people lets call it like it is.. PPP….. corrupt government.
    This present government hopefully will restore pride and honesty again to the people of Guyana…

  5. pedro, you are only hoping the Jagdeo will never be the President of Guyana again-wishful thinking.The saying ”you can’t let a good man down”. That man IS JAGDEO who resurrected Guyana from a pariah state which even the IMF refused to give further bail outs to the Hoyte regime, to one of international respectability, envy and admiration across the Caribbean as the only BRIGHT STAR. So those B…S… you are writing cannot stop the PPPC led by Jagdeo from returning

  6. He’s so brilliant yet he attended Patrice Lumumba Friendship University in Russia? Why did he not get a scholarship and attend a prominent western institution and study the non-communist brand of economics and not have to learn a foreign language. Maybe he was a late developer, but then again as president he exposed his lack of content on ‘BBC Hard Talk’. See http://www.redd-monitor.org/2010/02/05/president-jagdeo-avoids-answering-the-bbcs-questions-about-corruption.
    Look, I will concede that he made an impact in addressing environmental issues, but as an economist he is pretty ordinary. Certainly not in the league with Clive Thomas and Carl Greenidge. Jagdeo’s greatest strengths are cussing down and confusing gullible and naive people. Believe it or leave it.

  7. Jagdegone will never be the President of Guyana again and he knows it.See how long he lasts as the opposition leader.He is only doing the PooPyParty a favour as they say he mek too much through them and he want to run off and left them in the lurch.So de tell he he got stay and bear his chafe, with the rest of them.But Jagdegone only got one thing in his head,”I got things to do, places to go and nuff money to spend”I got to find a way to leff these nuisances and go, go, go.
    Anyway the PooPyParty going to be in opposition for at least fifteen years, so any choice of a PooPyParty presedential candidate is a pipe dream.

  8. Damon I wonder which planet you are from. Tell you what, you and your PPP Scums cannot see power again in Guyana because for the past 23 years you all under Jagdeo and Ramotar have destroyed the mere fabric of each and every single Guyanese Psyche. You useless people have created a very low scale for the life of the Guyanese populace and thereby the only solution and hope the people have is the Coalition Govt. President Granger and his Administration will see to it that Guyanese attain a better living standard under their watch

  9. Yea Granger is shaking in his boots….wishing thinking keep up, I threw up in my mouth with your one sides racist comment…brain dead..Pee Pee Pee is” PERSONA NON GRATA”. Hopefully you know what that means!!

  10. the shameless barefaced ppp clowns are at it again as though they are stuck in a tunnel and all they hear are their voices repeating the trash and horse manure they say. what is most hilarious about these clown is; they hear the echos of their voices and turn around believing that what they heard translates into massive popular support.

    the ppp president-maker [who failed donald ramotar in 2011 and again in 2015] ran to the media and claimed that the new coalition government’s budget is a ppp budget had to sit within earshot of irfaan ali calling the budget all fluff. now right here on the pages of this newspaper, one mp burton is claiming all policies on tourism in the present budget are policies of the ppp and before you could finish reading the statement some other clown saying that he is the representative from region 2 claims that the budget is sloppy and useless.

    reading such nonsense it only leaves one now to wonder when these ppp misfits are off camera if they pummel each other for putting out contradictory stories or they just walk about being totally oblivious of how stupid and downright dunce their messages are.

  11. LOL. This laught is on you not Joey. Did you realized that the PPP/C managed to garner 49% support from Guyanese in the last election. This is after Granger and his Team (Internal & External) forces fixed this Coalation win.

    Keep on with your HA!HA’s. I bet you won’t when this change is executed.

  12. i never read a more complete package of crap in all my life reading blogs and i started traversing them since netscape and prodegy were the going browsers. you even lacked the courtesy to package your load in a way that conceals the vulgarity of you stupidity.

    as for bharat jagdeo, didn’t he not run with donald ramotar for office just three months ago, and if he is the best thing since sliced bread for you ppp nutcases how come donald ramotar is not even an mp and bharat jagdeo is now relegated to the opposition side of the isle?

    bharat jagdeo has zero political clout and you better hope he dodges the court case he has hanging over his head before overstepping your bounds and crown him king five years ahead of yourself.

  13. joey I totally agree with you. Guyanese took the PPP/C for granted.

    For those who did they now regret their decision. For the ones who stood with the PPP/C I say be patient. Changes will come again with Bharat Jagdeo in the HOUSE.

  14. HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!
    Hey Joey, you are a regular comedian.
    Thanks for the Wednesday afternoon humor… 🙂

  15. My vote is there.. ramjattan n the entire crew is worst than incompetent… ” let’s see how the cookie crumbles”.

  16. I am sure that the comment of Bharrat Jagdeo being the next president of Guyana is already making the current government nervous and sending shock waves throughout the APNU/AFC regime. Just the mere fact that they have to face him in parlament is annoying them. Face the facts – he is the most brillant politician in the Guyana alive today and could outdo any and everyone in the current regime hands down. A change is government is probably the best thing that has happened in Guyana right now. All the allegation of corruption and mismanagement have all been proven untrue so far. Tthe truth of the matter is that the PPP made the way of life for the people in Guyana so simple and stressfree that people did not know how to appreciate it. Now that they have a bunch of incompetent people in governement they can now look back and appreciate the PPP regime. Folks look out – Bharrat Jagdeo and the PPP regime will be back sooner than expected in full force.
