Lord Ashcroft Says Matura-Shepherd is “Charming”

As we reported on Wednesday night, a photograph of a casual breakfast between Audrey Matura Shepherd and Lord Michael Ashcroft was plastered all over social media last Friday even before the breakfast had concluded. Whether it was out of mischief, the motive for the release of the unauthorized photo is not known but the attorney/activist has been prompted to speak publicly about the discussions. Matura Shepherd says that she spoke of the following with Lord Ashcroft: campaign financing, from which, she claims, both the P.U.P. and the U.D.P. have benefitted and the six years of litigation between Ashcroft and the Government which is represented by several private attorneys connected to the government of the day whose fees are not little. The third issue was about mediation. Matura Shepherd makes the point that Lord Ashcroft agreed that there is room for compromise because when it all over, it is the people of Belize who will have to pay.

Now, if it needs to be told, on his visit last week Lord Ashcroft met with a list of local personalities but it is only the breakfast with Matura Shepherd that went viral on Facebook. We have been in contact with Lord Ashcroft who tells us “I have heard the recent comments made by Audrey Matura to the media and I have no comment to make on our breakfast together other than I found her articulate, charming and good company.”
