P.U.P. Makes Biggest Election Heist in Belize City

John Briceño

The taking back of the Old Capital by the Blue Tsunami is compared to a repossession of the most valuable timepiece in the prime minister’s prized collection.  He is still left with many watches, but none as cherished as that vintage Rolex that gleams on his wrist.  That’s because, according to P.U.P. leader John Briceño, he failed miserably in delivering on the basic needs of Belize City residents, focusing instead on infrastructure development.

 

John Briceño, Party Leader, P.U.P.

“Belize City is the crown jewel and in this case, you know, we got the crown jewel.  Somebody jokingly told me that the prime minister is a collector of very expensive watches and in this case it’s like you took away his most expensive watch, and Belize City is that.  Belize City, we have five of the most powerful ministers in government, including the prime minister and Minister of Finance and the deputy prime minister and they had invested a lot in Belize City.  But what they have forgotten is that this is not about cement streets and roundabouts and a thirty-three million dollar basketball court that they have inaugurated and still can’t have a game yet.  It is about people.  If you are not looking after the interest and the needs of the Belizean people, that is what’s going to happen.  Bernard Wagner said it well, or said it best, it’s about people.  It’s about the people in Belize City and Bernard has managed to translate that empathy, that warmness, that love and a workable plan for the people of Belize City and that is why they have given him and his team the opportunity to be able to manage the affairs of Belize City for the next three years.”

    Wonder what you all going to do different. Insanity is voting for the same crooks over and over and expecting a different result. Wake up Belize! How soon do we forget. It’s time for a complete change.
