PM Says It’s Impossible to Avoid People Who are Not “For Real”

Turning to political matters….on Monday, the Prime Minister announced a small reshuffle of his Cabinet, in effect taking only the Police Department away from John Saldivar who now becomes the Minister of Defense. He has expressed a hope that this will put an end to what has been a bizarre saga, but that hope seems extremely unlikely. At the press conference the PM was grilled about information which keeps emerging, even suggesting that William Mason kept a journal in which he recorded transactions with ministers and other VIPs. The PM dismissed that rumor out of hand, and asked for quarter where the culpability of ministers is concerned.

“Please, again I squarely concede that as things have now turned out these acquaintanceships, these relationships, if you will, were most unfortunate. We had an extensive discussion in Cabinet as to what more Ministers could do to try and ensure that they don’t in fact end up countenancing, interacting with people who are not for real, but in the nature of things it is going to be impossible to completely eliminate any chance of that sort of thing happening. So please, Sir, it is a matter of great regret that this man knew so many Ministers, knew so many members of our society, was able to fool so many people including and especially the Ministers because we do have to answer for that, but I ask again. Please do not attempt to turn just the fact of the acquaintanceship into something culpable or criminal. If there is evidence such as you are talking about which I reject until I hear different from Colonel Lovell and Acting Commissioner Blackett. But if there is that sort of evidence, then that is a horse of a different colour, and I am telling you that I certainly would give every instruction, and I am certain the new Minister would as well, for that sort of investigation to proceed, for that sort of material to be thoroughly investigated.”

    Here is a secret! When ever you are in power and someone is befriending you this should be reason enough to pay close attention. Even more so if they are from…as my great grandmother would say deh jump eleven sea fi coh de!

    I guess common sense ain’t so common any more or this is what happens when leaders are motivated by greed.

    PUTTING A CROOK TO MAN ANOTHER PORT IS JUST A USELESS EXERCISE.

    PM Barrow, are you serious? What other evidence do you need aside from what is staring you in your face? Why are you protecting these people? The citizens of Belize deserve better. Could it be that they have something on you too? If you are an honest man as you proclaim, why not just expose the individuals involved and fire every last one of them. The world is watching you and how you are handling your country. The outcome of all this will definitely determine how capable you are to run an entire country. If I were you, I’d fire every last one of the ministers involved in this scandal, run a check through Interpol on this William Mason character and bring him to justice. I can bet you that this guy is involved in a whole lot of other scams and murders. Let’s face it, the guy is a first rate criminal. Stop hiding these individuals who are bringing shame to our country. If you haven’t revoked Mason’s phony birth certificate as yet, please do so! Stand up and protect the people like you should and put an end to all this foolishness.
