  1. The PPP Government is doing very well in regulating the inflation that is affecting the world due to the global food crisis and fuel prices.

    They have a writer named M.Maxwell who wrote in Tuesday July 26, 2011 Kaieteur News that Donald Ramotar can't prevent high food prices. But what is more ridiculous is that M.Maxwell blames the PPP for the current food prices and increased trend of the past 5 years when the world was facing increasing fuel prices.

    Who is M.Maxwell? A PNC mouthpiece or Christopher Ram and Freddie Felcher Kissoon in disguise?

    Please look at that letter to see the critics in action with no basis or objectivity.
