Advocating for righteousness, justice, fairness, accountability and transparency

first_imgDear Editor,The article carried in the Guyana Chronicle, Saturday, January 7, 2017, titled “Bishop Edghill opposes curbs on illegal rum shops” is mischievous, misleading, a total fabrication, a nasty piece of editorial intervention, yellow journalism and displays the pettiness and vindictiveness of the APNU/AFC Granger-led administration. It is clear that this propaganda piece was not designed to inform the public of the debate which took place in the National Assembly on January 6, 2017, but it was a calculated attempt to bring my ecclesiastical office into disrepute and to create suspicions in the minds of readers. The headline and story do not match and from all indications, the editor of the Guyana Chronicle must take full responsibility for facilitating this despicable act. At no time in my presentation to the National Assembly during the debate of Bill No 32 of 2016 “Intoxicating Liquor Licensing (Amendment) Bill 2016” did I indicate that I am against illegal rum shops or even made any such insinuations. As a matter of fact, nowhere in the Bill even in the explanatory memorandum, was the issue of illegal rum shops addressed. The Bill was about increasing fees and penalties (100 per cent in every case). It is clear that this Government, having inflicted greater burdens on the people of Guyana through their taxation measures, are now seeking to deflect the criticism coming from the masses.This attempt exposes the lack of decency and ethics; in seeking to denigrate one’s religion and vilifying their stance on moral issues to camouflage the Government’s moral bankruptcy. I strongly reject this continuing attack by members of the coalition Government, many who claim to embrace Christianity as the religion they practice. This article is a continuation of the unending and relentless cynicism, sarcasm and downright persecution that I have endured in the National Assembly without adequate protection from the Speaker of the House. The fact that the Guyana Chronicle chose to insert this Headline along with a picture of me clothed in ecclesiastical vestments is a clear indication that the target audience is the church community, but I am assured by the Scripture in Isaiah 54:17 “No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment.You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is from me,” Says the LORD.In direct response, I make these several calls:1) Every media entity who is interested in conveying factual information to the people of Guyana should air and make available my full presentation as it related to my contribution to Bill No 32 of 2016.2) I call upon all Guyanese to visit the Parliamentary website and view my presentation in full which was live streamed and is now archived.3) I call upon the Guyana Chronicle to make public the story submitted by the reporter who was present in the National Assembly and to indicate who gave the instructions to make changes, who gave the instructions to insert that Headline and who gave the instructions to insert a picture of myself in ecclesiastical vestments.4) I call upon Christian leaders of all the various denominations to denounce this despicable attack. ‘Silence for the purpose of political expedience is not an option.’5) I call upon leaders of all religions to state publicly their position on the abuse of religious leaders by the State media for political purposes.6) I call upon the Board and management of the Guyana Chronicle to immediately retract and offer a public apology with the same level of prominence that the article was published.Finally, I wish to give assurance to all Guyanese and more particularly the Christian community that I will continue to advocate for righteousness, justice, fairness, accountability and transparency in Government, social justice and all that is expected of me in keeping with my convictions and beliefs. I reject this diabolical plot that has been hatched, that is a reflection of the “sick minds” that exist in our country. I pray that those responsible will find a way of purging their souls from this evil.Sincerely,Juan EdghillMember of Parliamentlast_img read more

Midfielder reveals regret over switch from Southampton to Liverpool

first_img Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana 1 Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana revealed he regrets how his summer switch from Southampton to Anfield transpired last summer, but claims he did not force a move away from his former club.The 26-year-old was one of three Saints players signed by Brendan Rodgers in the summer, with Dejan Lovren and Rickie Lambert also brought in to the Merseyside club.The Reds made three separate bids for Lallana before a fee of £25million was agreed, and the England international admitted the move will have left a “sour taste” among some of Southampton’s supporters.“I’m not stupid enough to think the way I left didn’t leave a sour taste in a few people’s mouths,” he told the BBC.“I regret the way I left. I regret bits and pieces of how it happened and it got nasty. It was sad the way it happened.“What is true is that when I knew of Liverpool’s interest and that they had put a bid in, I did say to the club it would be my wish if they could negotiate a fee for me to move on.“Not for one second did I say I wouldn’t play for the club again. I’m man enough to say it was my choice and my decision for me to move on.Lallana missed Liverpool’s 2-1 victory on the opening weekend of the Premier League season, and claimed his absence may have been a “blessing in disguise” due to his emotional attachment to Southampton where he spent 12 years.“It’s still not sunk in that I’m going to be playing against Southampton,” he added.“I think it was a blessing in disguise that I was injured for the first game.“Even being in the crowd watching that day I just felt really emotional so to have been out there would have been way too soon.“The rawness of it all has got easier over the past six months.“I’ve got huge respect for the club; part of me doesn’t even know how I’m going to play. It’s all a bit surreal.“I just have to be professional and play well for Liverpool. I’ve got too much respect to celebrate [if he scores].”last_img read more

Football Talk: Celtic turned down Coleman, Spurs’ Son’s jelly terror

first_imgWell, that’s appropriate I suppose.Enzo Zidane: Are you watching, Dad? SNS GroupAll eyes on Scotland. The national team’s friendly against Czech Republic is on Premier Sports and kicks off at 7.45pm.You can follow all the acton on STV Sport’s live blog from 7.30pm.

It’s all in today’s Football Talk.Coleman talks about the move to Celtic that never was.The Spurs striker really doesn’t like jelly.Moments of yesteryear, reimagined for the Instagram age. St Mirren famously missed out on Ronaldinho, with Rangers once coming close to signing Andres Iniesta. Celtic passed up the chance to sign a world football star too.Okay, so Seamus Coleman might not measure up to the likes of Ronaldinho or Messi but the Everton full-back has revealed that the Glasgow club missed the opportunity to sign before he moved to Merseyside.Coleman cost Everton a mere £60,000 from Sligo Rovers and has since gone on to become one of the best right-backs in the game. Someone at Celtic has some explaining to do.Elsewhere, Freddy Adu (yup, the very same Freddy Adu) scored a stunning freekick, with Enzo Zidane showing off his skills in front of his Dad.last_img read more

Disney Cruise Line to add Three New Ships

first_imgShare This!Copyright DisneyWe knew that Disney was in the process of increasing its cruise line fleet by adding two additional cruise ships, but during the D23 Expo, they dropped a bombshell. Instead of two new ships, Disney Cruise Line will be adding THREE! This means that Disney will be almost doubling their fleet!The Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany is building the ships and the scheduled completion dates of the original two announced were 2021 and 2023. This additional ship will be built at the same shipyard and is scheduled to be completed in 2022.All Disney Cruise Line ship names, design plans and itineraries are still in development, but you can be sure that each of the ships will have its own unique and incredible experiences.According to Disney, the three new ships will be powered by clean-burning liquefied natural gas and be the same size – approximately 135,000 gross tons with about 1,250 guest staterooms planned. That is slightly larger than the newest Disney Cruise Line ships, the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy.We cannot wait for these new additions. These new ships will usher in the next generation of innovative cruise experiences designed especially for families. Anchors away!last_img read more
