Faber Blames P.U.P. for Country’s Economic Woes

Patrick Faber

The IMF states in its Article Four consultation that Belize is on shaky footing economically and measures will need to be put in place for recovery in the medium and long term. Earlier you heard the numbers man Joseph Waight explaining about austerity and government having to control expenditures. But Waight isn’t a politician. The newly elected Patrick Faber is, and told News Five that the tough times ahead can be blamed on the P.U.P., out of office for eight years now.

 

Patrick Faber, Deputy Party Leader, U.D.P.

“We spoke about the IMF Report. We spoke about the payments that re ahead up to 2019 for the Superbond. There are some rough times that are coming and I’ll point out not because of our administration but these are things that are following us because of the legacy of the People’s United Party. And it’s going to be difficult but in fact imagine how much worse it would have been if the Prime Minister did not redo the Superbond. We did not get into details, the Prime Minister merely shared what the report was saying and in fact gave some of the recommendations that they were making, but in terms of us getting down to deciding to actually put in place those measures there was no such discussion.”

    Bwai Rod, we are in for some tough times and sadly Dean Barrow has had enough. Poor thing might be out of politics before we can say Belize land of the free.

    Their all sick in the head notice he was talking but forget to leave out detail of the superbond and how they are supposedly going fix the problem. Farber is taking but he’s not saying shit just like Borrow with the Guatemalan border dispute.How can you trust these clowns when they can’t even tell the Belizean people the truth..selling out Belize to the Guats..power to the people
