“None of us wants chaos in Parliament” – Trotman

first_img…defends Speaker’s decision…it’s a matter of legality – HarmonIn light of the unprecedented chaos created in Parliament during Monday’s sitting of the National Assembly, the Government side of the House feels that the Opposition displayed grave disrespect for the Speaker of the House, Dr Barton Scotland. Natural Resources Minister and Leader of the Alliance for Change (AFC), Raphael Trotman said he has never witnessed such behaviour in the Parliament before and regardless of the differences the Speaker has always been shown respect.Police speaking with the Clerk of the National Assembly, Sherlock Isaacs“Whenever a Speaker has invited a member to sit, be quiet or refrain or withdraw; that has always been complied with. We have set a new precedent today and some may say we have descended to a new low,” Trotman said while providing his views on the situation.State Minister Joseph Harmon speaking to the pressTrotman, who served as Speaker of the National Assembly in the previous Parliament, said that from all indications the Speaker took the correct procedural steps. He noted that it was left up to the Clerk of the National Assembly in this case, Sherlock Isaacs, to decide if he believes that the Sergeant-at-Arms is incapable of enforcing the Speaker’s ruling to invite the Police in.“I would also like to say that none of us would like to see chaos erupting further in the House, and I think we have enough of it. At the end of the day, the parliamentary style we practice is one where the Speaker is the presiding officer and that presiding officer must be shown respect and the dignity of the House has to be maintained,” Trotman told media practitioners in the halls of Parliament.Meanwhile, in providing a comment on the issue, Minister of State, Joseph Harmon said it was a matter of the legality regarding the instruction given by the Speaker and the MP’s refusal to act on that instruction.Natural Resources Minister and Leader of the Alliance for Change (AFC) Raphael Trotman speaking to the press on Monday“It’s a question of the rule of law. The Speaker is the person who controls the business of this House and he cannot, Mr Edghill or no other member of the House, decide that they will violate these rules of the House by refusing to take action when the Speaker tells them to do so,” he stated.The Minister claims that no one shows respect for the Speaker’s rulings anymore, and he believes that the Speaker is entitled to do what he wishes to keep the House in order and the MPs in line.Business Minister Dominic Gaskin also had his views to share. He described the situation as “obnoxious behaviour” from the Opposition during a sitting and claimed that it was the second time that it has happened in the Parliament.Sit-inNo compromise was achieved when Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo and Dr Scotland met. However, the Opposition MPs continued their sit-in and collectively decided that they would stay until 22:00h, the time at which Parliament’s business was scheduled to be completed.Jagdeo later told the media that he raised the concern that the matter went beyond just the Speaker ruling to have Edghill removed from the chambers.“Subsequent actions of agents of the Parliament have led to Police coming here and the assault on many of our MPs, so it’s not a straightforward issue of a breach of the standing order any longer. It has several dimensions and the only thing we can do to defuse this situation is to adjourn for the day,” he stated.An attempt to supply the MPs with lamps was prevented as the Police and security at the Parliament seized the lamps purchased by Opposition MP Gillian Burton-Persaud. The decision to purchase these lamps was taken after the electricity, wi-fi and air conditioning in the chambers were turned off as the MPs continued their silent protest.last_img read more

Men jailed for brutal attack on “vulnerable” man for just €4

first_imgTwo men have been jailed for a savage attack on a “vulnerable” man during which they beat and kicked him and robbed him of just €4.Judge John Aylmer said the victim was in genuine fear for his life when set upon in an unprovoked attack outside a Letterkenny supermarket. Thugs Patrick Sweeney, 20, and Stephen Scott, 25, chased the man, 53, dragged him to the ground and then launched a brutal attack on him at Simpson’s Supermarket in Letterkenny.Having watched CCTV footage of the attack, Judge Aylmer said the video made for shocking viewing.He said it was only by an extraordinary chance the victim survived the beating with no major injuries.Sweeney and Scott can be seen pulling their target to the ground before dancing on him and then kicking him repeatedly on the ground for up to 40 seconds.They then go through his pockets, take his money and walk off casually.Scott and his co-accused Sweeney appeared before Letterkenny Circuit Court charged with robbing the victim.The court heard how the pair had been drinking heavily on the evening they attacked and robbed Mr Byrne on October 28th, last year.Footage from CCTV cameras showed clear images of the horrific mugging which took place just after 9pm.The victim eventually managed to get up off the ground and was helped by shocked passers-by.Garda Frank McDaid told the court that a member of the public had contacted Letterkenny Garda station to say a man was being mugged.They arrived five minutes later and although they found blood on the ground, there was no victim in sight.Garda McDaid called to Simpson’s Supermarket the next day to gather CCTV footage and happened to come across the victim.He admitted he had been attacked the previous night and Gardai took him to Letterkenny University Hospital for treatment.The victim had not contacted Gardai and did not visit the hospital after the attack.“I didn’t want to waste their time and I’m okay overall,” he told Gardai.A statement from Dr Adam Leslie Howard said the victim had received multiple injuries including wounds on his head, arms and shoulders after being struck multiple times during an attack.Barrister for Scott, of Meadowbank, Letterkenny, Ms Fiona Crawford, said her client had a severe issue with alcohol and drugs.She added that her client was due to start a rehabilitation course days after this incident and had gone on a drink and drugs binge.Scott took to the witness stand where he apologised to his victim.Barrister for Sweeney, of Birchill Upper, Letterkenny, Mr Peter Nolan said the CCTV fitness shown in court was truly appalling.“The day we all stop being shocked by footage like that is the day we all need to give up,” he said.He added that his client also had a drink problem.Sweeney himself took to the stand to apologise to Mr Byrne who was not in court and who declined to give a victim impact statement.He said “We all seen CCTV footage – what happened to this man should not have happened to anyone. I’d like to say sorry and it should never have happened. When I saw it I felt guilty because I know what happened to this man should never happen to anyone.“I have remorse. On that night I knew I had done something but I was heavily intoxicated and that’s why I handed myself into the barracks.“I have trouble sleeping thinking about what I done. The only time I don’t think about it is when I’m studying in school.”Passing sentence, Judge Aylmer said the attack, which showed an “extreme and dangerous level of violence in a sustained manner” deserved sentences of five years in prison.However, he had to take into consideration the guilty plea and the fact that Sweeney had no previous convictions before the attack.He jailed Scott for 3 years and four months, backdated the sentence until when he went into custody last November and suspended the final sixteen months of the sentence.He then jailed Sweeney for two and a half years, also backdated the sentence until last November and suspended the final 12 months.The men’s families waved at them as they were led away to begin their sentences.Men jailed for brutal attack on “vulnerable” man for just €4 was last modified: May 10th, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:attackcourtGardaijailedkickingletterkennyPatrick SweeneyStephen Scottlast_img read more

The floodgates open

The last time they lost at home to San Diego was in 1970, winning seven straight before Sunday. The last time the Patriots started a season 2-2 was 2003, though they went on to win the title that year anyway. San Diego, which has now scored 86 points in two wins after starting with two losses, was nearly unstoppable against a defense with a lot of holes. Brees threw for two touchdowns, Tomlinson ran for two more and Gates had six catches for 108 yards. Though the score was tied 17-17 at the half, Brees took advantage of a secondary that already was without two of its top three cornerbacks and is missing safety Rodney Harrison, lost for the year with a knee injury. “I played with Rodney, I know what a leader he is,” Brees said. “It’s not only the physical things he does. It’s the leadership, the mental toughness, what he imparts to his teammates. I know they’ve been able to put in a lot of subs over the years and not miss anything, but a player like Rodney is something special.” After his Chargers beat New England 41-17 Sunday, the San Diego coach suggested the win may have had as much to do with who wasn’t playing for New England as the superior performances of Drew Brees, LaDainian Tomlinson and Antonio Gates. “What they’ve done is remarkable,” he said of the Patriots, who had their 21-game home winning streak ended. “But at what point in time do you keep responding when you have to keep putting in new players? They’ve done it wonderfully over the last four years, but there comes a time where it has to catch up with you, even with a team as great as this one.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Kurtenbach: Antonio Brown to the Niners? Fans should pump the brakes

first_imgThe 49ers should add a clear-cut, bonafide No. 1 receiver this offseason. They have an elite tight end and a solid stable of pass catchers — some of which are pretty dynamic — but they lack a wide-out that demands the defense’s full attention on every snap, and that could hold back Kyle Shanahan’s offense from entering the NFL’s elite in 2019.The Steelers’ Antonio Brown is, without an ounce of doubt, a No. 1 receiver. The future Hall of Famer has averaged 115 catches, 1,525 yards, and 11 …last_img
