Georgetown. Guyana: The City Council announced last week that it would take the traffic situation in hand. It is unlikely that the City Council would have known that funds would be allocated in the budget for this purpose. After disastrous past experiences, the City Council should not be allowed to preside over parking arrangements for mini bus and taxi parks in the city.

In her acceptance speech Hattie recognized the import of the moment and hoped that she was a ‘credit to her race.’ One of her greatest desires was to be buried in the Hollywood cemetery among he ‘showbiz types’ but even in death she found segregation.

The last Defender: Is Land Rover’s off-road heyday over?

  • Land Rover Series vehiclePhoto: Jaguar Land Rover’s classic vehicle is perhaps the most recognisable off-road car of them all
