Former High Commissioner for Belize to UK Speaks Out Against UDP Christmas Cheer

Kamela Palma

Former High Commissioner for Belize to UK, Kamela Palma is speaking out against the Christmas Cheer by the U.D.P. Administration. Palma has been living in Punta Gorda since she vacated the post in London.  She questions what the administration hopes to achieve by giving out Christmas cheer allowances of twenty-five thousand dollars to each elected U.D.P. representative. Palma questions in a text message, “Is it a punishment then for the electorate who democratically elected a P.U.P. representative to get nothing and then because of public outcry get fifty percent of that twenty-five thousand dollars. I wonder…is it the message that some constituencies are more equal than others that is being conveyed?” She condemns it as a blatant, punitive act of the government against its people who simply did what they thought it was right to do and democratically voted in a representative of their choice. Palma says it is below G.O.B. to play a nasty partisan game for Christmas when we should be imbued with love for our fellowmen, women, and children.
