Julius Espat Takes A Swipe at the PM

Julius Espat

Espat concluded his presentation by taking a swipe at the Prime Minister, who in a prior session has used the privilege granted by the House to refer to Espat as a pig. The Cayo South Area Representative told the House that Barrow calling him a pig is indeed the greatest of ironies.

 

Julius Espat, Area Representative, Cayo South

“The English definition of a barrow is that of a castrated pig that is being led to slaughter. The official English definition from the Oxford dictionary of a barrow is that of a castrated pig that is being led to slaughter. So now, Mister Speaker, how ironic and that is not insulting the member. I am only defining and using the English dictionary. Mister Speaker, we cannot trust a barrow to defend us against our true foes. We cannot trust a barrow to negotiate on our behalf and for that reason Mister Speaker, I have a problem in going to the ICJ because the movement is being led by a Barrow. And to the people of Belize, I say not one blade of grass, not one grain of sand.”
