“No comment to make” – Ramjattan on President’s PM rejection

first_imgPresident David Granger, this morning, told reporters that he is yet to decide on who is running mate is although the Alliance For Change (AFC) announced Public Security Minister, Khemraj Ramjattan as the Coalition’s Prime Ministerial candidate.“I know what I am going to do. I reserve the right to choose and nominate a Prime Minister. I will nominate all ministers including the Prime Minister who is my chief minister,” the President said.Meanwhile, when contacted, Ramjattan told the Guyana Times that he has “no comment to make” and promptly disconnected the call.The AFC and APNU have been at loggerhead over the selection of a Prime Ministerial candidate since the 2015 Cummingsburg Accord gave the PM slot to the AFC.However, the revised agreement was signed on December 24 but details surrounding the agreement is yet to be made public. The signing was done at State House, with President David Granger and Director-General of the Ministry of the Presidency, Joseph Harmon, representing APNU as the party’s Chairman and General Secretary respectively.On the other hand, the smaller party was represented by Ramjattan (as AFC leader) and Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson (as AFC General Secretary). Harmon did confirm, following the signing of the revised Accord, that the AFC’s nominee will be the PM candidate.Asked if the party was happy with the Accord that was signed, Harmon noted that as they signed, it was indicative of them being satisfied with the terms. According to Harmon, the Accord itself embraces principles of constitutionalism and the experiences shared over the past few years.Ramjattan was elected at the AFC’s last National Executive Conference to be the PM candidate, effectively overthrowing current Prime Minister, Moses Nagamootoo.There has been much speculation in the public domain on whether the AFC would have been able to reclaim its previous Cummingsburg Accord concessions after its showing at Local Government Elections (LGE) last year.In October, President Granger had told reporters that Ramjattan has not been given the green light by APNU and the prime ministerial candidacy would be determined only after negotiations between the two parties.last_img read more

Wigan owner accused of anti-Semitic and racist comments

first_imgWigan owner Dave Whelan has been accused of anti-Semitism and racism during an interview with a national newspaper.The comments come just a day after the Latics controversially appointed Malky Mackay as the clubs new manager.Speaking to the Guardian, Whelan reportedly said: “Jewish people chase money more than everybody else.”He added: “If any Englishman said he has never called a Chinaman a chink he is lying. There is nothing bad about doing that. It is like calling the British Brits, or the Irish paddies.” Football’s equality and inclusion organisation Kick It Out, have released a statement calling for the Football Association to fully investigate the comments made by Whelan, claiming it is “another example of the culture which continues to exist within football.”It read: “He has brought into question whether he is a fit and proper person who should be running a professional football club.“The remarks act as another example of the culture which continues to exist within football, and further proves that some in positions of power seem comfortable sharing those views either privately or publicly. These comments must not go unchallenged and have to be investigated by The FA.“The FA also needs to get to the bottom of Whelan’s insistence that he has been in contact with ‘influential’ figures within its own organisation about the Malky Mackay and Iain Moody case. They must ascertain whether his claims have any substance by conducting an investigation into this too.”Shirt sponsor Premier Range announced they would withdraw their sponsorship with the club, after the kitchen appliance company claimed the appointment of the former Cardiff manager has left them in an untenable position.Mackay is currently under investigation for alleged racist and anti-Semitic texts and emails exchanged with Cardiff’s former head of recruitment Iain Moody, who is also being investigated, during their time at the Welsh club. 1 Dave Whelan last_img read more

first_img“I want you all to know that I will not be able to play again this season,” Suarez tweeted.“Some issues with my groin have made things tough since the game against BATE in the Europa League, now they have forced me to stop training altogether.“After various medical consultations, the conclusion has been reached that I cannot keep on pushing it and I have started a period of treatment that cannot be done alongside competitive football.”Suarez’s last appearance for Arsenal was in their win against Manchester United in March.His contract with Barcelona runs until 2021, but the Gunners have an option to buy the Spaniard when his loan expires this summer.“I’m sorry that all the effort and sacrifice that was made to come to Arsenal hasn’t come to fruition as hoped and you can’t even imagine how angry I am about it, but health comes first,” Suarez added.“I want to give my thanks again to such a big club for trusting in me, although things haven’t gone as we pictured they would.”Suarez joined Barcelona in 2013 from Manchester City as a teenager after making only two senior appearances for the English club.He has previously played under Arsenal manager Unai Emery for Sevilla while on loan from Barcelona during the 2014-15 season.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Arsenal’s Denis Suarez will miss the rest of the season © AFP / Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 29 – Arsenal’s Denis Suarez will miss the rest of the season after suffering a groin injury, the midfielder announced on Monday.Suarez has been limited to only six substitute appearances for Arsenal since arriving on loan from Barcelona in January.last_img read more

Screenwriters vote to strike

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.“The next step is for us to get a serious response to our opening proposals, which we still don’t have,” said David J. Young, executive director of the West Coast guild. The guilds are asking that residual payments for films and programs sold on DVD be sharply increased, and that pay schedules be set for new outlets such as the Internet and cell phones. Company representatives have refused the first demand, and have said they are not prepared to address new media until their place and value in the entertainment marketplace are better understood. J. Nicholas Counter III, president of the producers alliance, called the authorization vote “a pro forma tactic,” in which union leaders typically win overwhelming support. “Our focus is on negotiating an agreement,” Counter said. A walkout would be Hollywood’s first major work stoppage since writers struck for five months in 1988. Screenwriters, by a sizable majority, authorized their leaders to call a strike against Hollywood’s producers as early as Nov. 1, in votes disclosed Friday. Meanwhile, bargainers for both sides this week felt their way toward something missing from their stalled talks: the kind of unofficial conversations that led to deals in the past. In mail balloting and at Thursday night meetings on both coasts, members of the Writers Guild of America East and the Writers Guild of America West granted strike authority with 90.3percent approval, representatives of the guilds said. About 5,500 of the roughly 12,000 writers covered by the unions’ contracts cast votes. Given historically low turnout rates in guild elections, the tally was a strong show of support for the tough stance taken by guild negotiators in their discussions with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Well done to Amber and all involved.*Donegal Minors*Well done to Kane Barrett and the Donegal Minor team who won the Ulster Minor League Final on Saturday defeating Derry by 2-14 to 1-11. Congratulations to Kane and all the Donegal squad.*Seniors*Buncrana 5-6 CLG BnaG 3-18The Seniors continue their good run with another impressive performance away to Buncrana. Na Galloglaigh were in control for the majority of the match but will still be disappointed to have conceded 5 goals. Buncrana got the first score of the match from a 45 but this was responded to by two Luc O Bairead frees. Darragh Black had a goal chance after 12 minutes but the ball did eventually end up in the Buncrana net after good work from Kyle Black down the sideline set Cathal Mc Gettigan free and he found Kane Barrett free on the edge of the square to finish to an empty net. Another McGettigan free had the lads in a nice healthy position leading 1-3 to 0-2 before two Buncrana goals in the space of a minute turned the scoreline on its head. Cathal added three more points before a superb ball from Darragh Black found McGettigan in the box and he was then rugby tackled to the ground by the Buncrana keeper. The keeper got a black card for his troubles while McGettigan dusted himself down to score the penalty as the game entered injury time. Kane Barrett added another goal almost immediately after to leave the half time score 3-6 to 2-4. Disaster struck again at the restart as Buncrana got a third goal with less than 30 seconds of the half played. Again the boys responded well and got points from Darragh Black and Pauric Curley before Buncrana had a second man black carded for a late challenge on Kyle Black. More points from Darragh Black, Christopher Barrett, Luke and Kane Barrett give the boys a 3-13 to 3-5 lead before Buncrana got their fourth goal. Cathal McGettigan then scored 4 in a row before Buncrana won themselves a penalty at the death, Kieran Mc Laughlin adjudged to have fouled his man just inside the box. Caolan Mc Gettigan saved the initial shot but there was nothing he could do about the rebound which fell to the takers feet to finish. Chippie Barrett got the last score of the game before Buncrana were reduced to 14 men when a defender was given his second yellow late in injury time. Thats 5 wins from 5 for the lads now who will have a tough test next Monday when they take on last seasons Division 3 runners up Aodh Ruadh in Milford.Team: Sean Gallagher, Kieran Sheridan, Sean Black, Gavin Grier, Tj Evesson, Enda McHugh, Kieran McLaughlin, Jonny Logue, Luke Barrett (0-3), Kyle Black, Christopher Barrett (0-2), Darragh Black (0-2), Pauric Curley (0-1), Cathal McGettigan (1-9), Kane Barrett (2-1). Caolan McGettigan for Gallagher (44m), Joey Cullen for K. Barrett (56m), Dean Burgess, Paddy Peoples, Adam Serrinha, Paul Grier.*Reserves*Buncrana 3-10 CLG BnaG 2-15Like the Seniors the Reserves have also won 5 from 5 after another good win in Buncrana. It wasn’t their best display so far this season but they did enough to grind out the result. It was nearly like free taking training for Adam Serrinha who opened the scoring in the first minute and he added a goal after 6 when a good ball from Jamie Heena and a good run from Anthony Fisher left Serrinha to finish from close range. Buncrana were guilty of racking up the wides in the middle period of the half as they came more and more into the game. James Whelan had a good goal chance after Serrinha set him through but his shot was blocked, however a minute later a high cross from Hugh Mc Menamin was fisted into the net by Whelan to give the boys a 2-2 to 1-1 lead after 18 minutes. Serrinha added 3 more frees to give Na Galloglaigh a 2-6 to 2-3 lead at half time in a half littered with basic handling and passing errors which seen Buncrana score a second goal very late in injury time. Buncranas runners were not being tracked as much as they should be and were causing havoc at times, but at the other end the lads had their shooting boots on with Serrinha, Emmet Conaghan, Ciaran McHugh, Jamie Heena, and a great score from Caolan Bolton keeping the Inishowen men at arms length. Dean Burgess produced a great block to deny a Buncrana goal and moments later Adam Serrinha had the ball in the back of the net, however the referees whistle had already gone and he had to make do with a free instead. Buncrana kept cranking up the pressure however and were rewarded with a goal in the 59th minute to leave just 3 points between the sides, 2-15 to 3-9, and set up a nervy finish. Na Galloglaigh held out however and despite a late point from Buncrana they ran out 2 point winners to keep their great run of form going. Team: Gavin McFadden, Tony McGettigan, Cormac Friel, Connor Jason Meakin, Dean Burgess (0-1), Paul Grier, Jamie Heena (0-1), Paul Sweeney, Anthony Fisher (0-1), Emmet Conghan (0-1), Caolan Bolton (0-1), Hugh McMenamin, Paddy Peoples, Adam Serrinha (1-9), Jamie Whelan (1-0). Subs: Ciaran McHugh (0-1) for Whelan (42m)*Minor County Final*CLG BnaG 2-7 Bundoran 1-12Heartache for our Minors after a superb league campaign fell at the final hurdle on Monday night against Bundoran. Played in horrendous conditions Bundoran to be fair dealt with the conditions better and deserved their win. The lads looked a little nervous at the start and basic errors plagued their performance throughout the match and especially in the first half as they struggled to get to grips with the conditions. Bundoran got the first score of the match before Kane Barrett levelled things up after 10 minutes. Bundoran midfielder Paul Murphy then scored 4 points to another point for Barrett to leave Bundoran 0-5 to 0-2 up as the game entered the last 5 minutes of the half. Na Galloglaigh had actually been playing with the wind in the first half but failed to utilise it properly and were guilty of being slow to let the ball in. However, in the last 5 minutes of the half they showed some of the clinical edge they’d shown all year as Martin Doyle scored a peach of goal and 2 minutes later Adam Serrinha added another. Points from Connor Gormley and Barrett put the boys into a 2-5 to 0-5 lead as the half time whistle went, this 6 point lead flattering the boys somewhat after their performance thus far. The wind kept getting stronger and it was always going to be tough for the boys to maintain their 6 point lead with it. Bundoran came out all guns blazing in scored 2 points either side of another Kane Barrett score in the first 2 minutes of the half before a controversial penalty was awarded to Bundoran. Gavin Grier was lying on the ground when a shot hit off his back, to which the referee deemed he handled the ball on the ground and awarded a spot kick. Bundoran scored to put just 2 between the sides. At this stage Na Galloglaigh really had their backs to the walls due to relentless Bundoran pressure, while often they were also the masters of their own downfall due to sloppy mistakes. Adam Serrinha responded with a score but 3 scores in 4 minutes for Bundoran put them into the lead again with 6 minutes left. Against a monster wind the boys struggled to get out of their own 45 and into Bundorans and in fairness Bundoran tackled very well. The cause was further hampered in the dying minutes when they were reduced to 14 men as Cormac Toland received a second yellow. In the end Na Galloglaigh had no answer to either the weather or Bundorans hassling and ultimately were defeated by 2 points. There will always be a nagging doubt in the back of everyones mind that had the game been played in better conditions the boys could have done themselves justice. Nevertheless, the League was always something that was going to be ‘nice’ to win, but Plan A has always been the Championship, and the boys should take great heart and confidence from their League campaign that they have the ability to beat anybody. The boys will be over the coming days but hopefully they will remember how they felt on Monday evening come Championship and be sure not to feel like that again. They are a great bunch of lads that has become a tight knit unit with great attitude and work rate to match their undoubted ability, Monday just wasn’t their day but there will be more. A word of thanks also to Roger McMahon who supplied food for the boys after the game, and indeed Ryan Mcmahon who delayed his holidays for the game. Once again the support was top class and we would like to thank everyone who came out in such woeful weather. Team: Gavin McFadden, Andreas Afxentiou, Kieran Sheridan, Patrick Ferry, Ryan McMahon, Ronan Docherty, Cormac Toland, Luke Trearty, Connor Gormley (0-2), Odhrán Coll, Adam Serrinha (1-1), Martin Doyle (1-0), Conor Mc Hugh, Kane Barrett (0-4), Gavin Grier.

With some players missing and others struggling with fatigue due to the hectic fixtures schedule managers Dean and Aidan were able to utilise their resources in naming the team for the game at the Bridge. The Moyle men got off to a flyer when Jamie-Lee Blaney found the back of the net within the opening two minutes after being played in by Dane Dunworth. St Michaels responded quickly however with scores from Colin Mc Fadden and Liam Kelly. Blaney found the back of the net again in the fifteenth minute however again St. Michael’s responded with a goal of their own from Callum Friel after a good block down from Conor Coll Friel followed up to poke it past a helpless Odhran Crossan. Another score from Connor Brennan a minute later levelled the sides. Na Galloglaigh continued to dominate but failed to convert their chances against a significant breeze and the home side moved two points ahead and looked to go in at half time leading until Shane McNamee found the back with a great effort, a further point from Conor Mc Hugh seen the sides leave the field at half time with Na Galloglaigh leading two points 3-1 to1-5. Three scores from Ryan Mcmahon in the second half stretched the away sides league and a two goals from Dane Dunworth put the result to bed. The impressive Kelly and McFadden scored a point a piece for the home side however it was not enough and the Galloglaigh ran out comfortable winners ensuring Division One status for the league finals. They will now look to finish their impressive group stage winning streak with another win as they meet Fanad at home on Friday night which promises to be an entertaining local derby.Teams (14 a side): Odhran Crossan, Conor Coll, Andreas Afxentiou, Niall Ferry, Ross Trearty, Ronan Docherty, Peter Curran, Ryan Toye, Niall Trearty, Dane Dunworth (2-0), Conor McHugh (0-1), Jamie Lee Blaney (2-0), Ryan Mc Mahon (0-3), Shane Mc Namee (1-0).
