What about…


Your Eyewitness feels for Rishi Sunak. He had so much on his shoulders as the FIRST “native” whose ancestors were ruled by the British Empire to have become the ruler of the “Mother Country”. Well, he wasn’t exactly the RULER, but he was head of the government – and a government of the arch imperialist party at that!! Didn’t the poster boy of the Tories, Churchill, describe the aptitude of Indians for ruling: “Power will go to the hands of rascals, rogues, freebooters; all Indian leaders will be of low calibre & men of straw. They will have sweet tongues and silly hearts.”
So, who was Rishi Sunak, and what was his record after succeeding Boris Johnson in 2022 – and now booted out after two years? His grandparents were part of the Indian populace Britain had impoverished to serve as “coolies” of the Empire. There were two types: the 465,000 indentured labourers who, for instance, were shipped to the West Indies – of which 239,000 ended up in British Guiana – and there were the “passenger immigrants” who paid their way. Sunak’s grandparents were of the second type, and ended up in Kenya and other colonies in East Africa. They emigrated to Britain in the 1960s – just before Idi Amin had, in 1972, expelled all of their ilk from Uganda.
Sunak’s parents became part of the immigrant middle class when his father swotted to become a medical doctor and his mother a pharmacist, with her own neighbourhood pharmacy, over which they also lived. They, in turn, scrimped to send Sunak to one of the poshest (and most expensive) Grammar schools in England – Winchester!! He proceeded to Oxford to read for the very competitive PPE degree. A Fulbright scholarship took him to Stanford in California for an MBA, that got him into the top investment house Goldman Sachs, and then into private hedge funds, where he earned his fortune. Real immigrant success story!!
But the Stanford stint also saw him getting hitched to the daughter of the founder of Infosys, second richest man in India. His wife’s 1% share of Infosys stocks made her richer than the Queen of England – and together they were the richest family to enter British politics. This he did after his return to the UK in 2009 and was elected to Parliament from a safe Tory seat in 2015. As a backer, first of PM Theresa May on Brexit and then of PM Johnson after her exit, he was first appointed Secretary of the Treasury, and then Chancellor of the Exchequer in 2020.
He was picked as Tory leader by the MPs; but, even then, polls showed that rank and file Tories didn’t want him!!
They spoke last week!!

…law and order?
Something’s rotten in the state of the Guyana Police Force. Why is it that, if it’s another day, then it’s gotta be another scandal for them! Your Eyewitness wonders how long this will continue. But then he realises that Haiti has put up with a rotten police force for two hundred years!! We have quite a way to go in order to catch up, but don’t forget that, in only two decades, the PNC had brought our economy to hover precariously above theirs!! Will we need some Kenyan police to straighten them out??
Your Eyewitness just heard that scams and businesses – they’re mostly the same!? – are being run right from behind the walls of Police Headquarters!! Now, while the smoking gun is being sought, no matter how you slice it or dice it – and it WILL be sliced and diced! – the smell is so “renk” that this shouldn’t be allowed to disappear.
The matters should be passed to the Office of Professional Responsibility. But Oooops! OPR uses Police detectives to investigate!!

Imagine Beryl started in the Atlantic above our Mudland; zapped Grenada, sashayed a thousand miles up to Jamaica, then oozed to the land mass of Mexico, which forced it to curve up through Texas!!
To force cancelling flight from Gy to Houston!!
