After Congress Speaker Diosdado Cabello accused opposition Primero Justicia party of corruption, opposition deputies Richard Mardo and Gustavo Marcano gave a press conference to explain how the donations the party received were spent.

Mardo said the accusations made on Tuesday at the National Assembly against his party are "one of the most horrific chapters (...) because the leading character, who led the debate, has never given an explanation to the country." Reference was made to Cabello.

Mardo claimed that former opposition deputy William Ojeda, who is now a government supporter, following instructions of Cabello, tried to buy him off in order to harm opposition leaders Julio Borges and Henrique Capriles.

"They could not buy me; they could not break my legs. I stood firm because I have a clear conscience," he said.

He said all the contributions they received from private companies were used to help the poor.

This is all there is

A simple reason: there is oil galore, would suffice to explain Guyana's actions. Another explanation lies in the little or none efforts made by the Venezuelan government to thwart the move by the Guyanese. This is certainly not a new problem, but a problem only recently highlighted because oil is involved. But what other resources does the disputed area hold? For most of us it is a section on the map with black and white stripes on it, a depiction of something distant, alien, a nothingness not worth paying much attention to in geography classes back in elementary school.
