Espat Incensed Over Briceño Accusation

John Briceño

As we also mentioned on Wednesday, during the meeting at Independence Hall Espat demanded a public apology from Briceño and called for his head. Neither the apology nor the requested ouster came to pass, because Espat was only supported by one executive member. Tonight, we bring back that comment which has so incensed P.U.P. Deputy Leader Espat.

 

Voice of: John Briceño, Orange Walk Central Area Rep.

“But I could not continue spending my money or else I would bankrupt my business and my family. As you know, family comes first. So in order not to sink the party deeper, I made that sacrifice. Said, Ralph and Francis – they had a plan. They wanted to bring me down by criticising me in the National Perspective Newspaper. Three weeks after I stepped up, I was criticized by the same P.U.P. that you are talking about. That is the cancer in the P.U.P. that you should talk about. That’s the cancer that we have. That is the cancer that stole millions and millions and millions of dollars from the people. They stole tens of millions of dollars and I was honest. If there had been another leader, he would not have explained all of this. He would not have said what has happened in the party. Francis will put me as a back bencher. So why should I fight? And so I stepped down. But besides that, we could have still won. But they were not thinking strategically. They gave all the money to Julius. And what did Julius do? He spent all the money.”

 

Voice of: Julian Chell

“I agree with you on that. With that I am in agreement with you, boss.”

 

Voice of: John Briceño

“He took all the money. He spent it on himself and he won by one thousand votes. And we lost two seats by less than sixty votes – Cayo North East and Cayo Central.”

 

News Five has been reliably informed that Espat has also threatened to sue Briceño.

    Big up John Briceno. Truth is truth. If we run clean conventions and run Musa out of town, we will wipe the floor with Dean Barrow. Look who won: Cordel and Johnny. For the record, I absolutely detest Mark Espat and Jorge. They were never team players. I also abhor Said Musa for the enormous damage he has done to Brand PUP. Mark is gone, Jorge gone, and now Said must go. He brought those two sobs’ into the party. It’s only fitting he joins them in the garbage dump. Amen!

  2. Retired CEO says:

    I agree with Espat, Johnny owes the party an open apology. The damage that Johnny has caused the party cannot be undone, however an open apology will go a long way in the healing process. Forward ever, backward never. PUP all the way.
