  1. Of course not, you want the thiefing bastard Bar Rat in there so all the soupies can feel good about them selves….Keep dreaming the ABC countries wants nothing to do with the Pee Pee Pee.!!

  2. He doesn’t need to go to the places of former members of government. He and everyGuyanese know who not living in a depressed community, we all know who stole millions and why all those areas are depressed, the PPP did nothing for them or most Guyanese. They only took care of the CHOSEN Few.

  3. Mr H0lloway has an impressive CV and the expectations are that he takes high moral ground in all his diplomatic duties as he serves his country. It is well known that America has no permanent friends but interests all over the world. With his vast experience, it is hoped he does not get involved unashamedly and unapologetically with the internal politics of the country like his predecessor, Mr Hunt.

  4. New U.S Ambassador arrives in Guyana..

    U must take him to parliament and all government run institutions and most private business places to see the ethnic unity government his buddy Hunt created by through election fix on May 11th 2015.
    Take him to Goodwood racing and Popeye franchise in Georgetown- take him to Marios Pizza let him see ethnic unity. He will get the idea of lies being peddled by the independent free press whom were all against PPPC. Those same independent free press seeing on a daily basis the ethnic cleansing jobs related taking place but are afraid to challenge the ruling PNC since they all knows PNC intolerance for free press. I bet you the new US man will take a seat- then scratch he head and ask where is the discrimination against Afro Guyanese whom they heard so much of. Take him to Linden let him see those with their electric stoves and their 24 hrs fully air conditioned homes liming with their brand name clothing and foot wear. Fly him over Linden at night let him see how this depressed community light up. U have to give credit to Afro Guyanese since they could not care less about others once they enjoy freeloading. Take him into other PNC stronghold villages let him see how they steal electricity and water but the companies even with armed forces dare not enter to bring them to justice.

  5. We do not want Hunt in Guyana. He assisted this defacto Government into office. Hope this new Ambassador will be fair to the Opposition.
