    “I shall be a good president for all the people of Guyana,” Granger said after taking the oath of office for his five-year term.

    Yeah thats what all African and Middleastern leaders say when they take office.
    Hutus vs Tutsi
    Shia vs Sunni
    Sinhalise vs Tamils

    Thats the problem with all multicultural countries, they just dont get along.

    “Granger swears”

    He told Ramotar to ”fuck off and don't come back, you crook.'

    Sounds reasonable to me!

    “Thats the problem with all multicultural countries, they just dont get along.”

    All?

    Like multi-national countries such as Switzerland, Spain, UK, Canada?

    Or multicultural migrant countries such as UK, Canada, U.S., New Zealand, Australia and Singapore?

    Such broad generalisations that don't stack up to reality.

    Spain, UK and Canada are examples where one side is being subsidised to “Keep calm and carry on” and the other side is bitter.

    “Or multicultural migrant countries such as UK, Canada, U.S., New Zealand, Australia and Singapore?” Well in my opinion it depends if the migration is generalized in the whole country instead of a fixed area and mixed with other groups fairly proportionally rather than one single party or origin of migrants.

    And needless to say Muslims are not included.
