Michael Younge wrote what is a scurrilous made-to-order piece in the Times this morning: “Feelings of outrage, disappointment and shock ran through various quarters of the Alliance For Change (AFC) East Coast Demerara (ECD) constituency following the party’s decision to enter into a coalition agreement with the People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR)-led A Partnership for National Unity (APNU).”
Out of eight persons “interviewed” all were unanimously against the alliance – how convenient. And he cites only three by name among those so devastated by the news: “Fifty-two-year-old Shaline Baksh of Coldingen, East Coast Demerara explained that she was almost certain that even after discussions, the AFC would have stood its ground and gone to the polls alone. For her, the party that she joined since 2006 after being fed-up with the PPP/C was no longer her home.” THE AFC need to go speak to her immediately!
If they can find her…because we don’t see any Shaline Baksh in Coldingen on the PVL. There are eleven Shalines in Region 4 but none with the last name Baksh and none of the Shalines live in Coldingen. In fact we don’t see anyone named Baksh living in Coldingen.
And it gets worse there is no Desire Williams either living in or out of Buxton. (there are four Desiree Williams but none live in Buxton). We wonder if Younge even left his desk….
