Attorney Elrington is also unimpressed by changes to amendment

Attorney Hubert Elrington is also unimpressed by the changes. He questions the government’s ability to properly conduct consultations and says the recent article in the Jamaica Gleaner placed the prime minister on a bad footing.

Hubert Elrington, Attorney

“Belmopan does not have the mental equipment to guide the conversation. What is up in Belmopan does not have the capacity mentally and intellectually to guide the national conversation. That is the crisis.”

Marleni Cuellar

“Now, even if you don’t feel they have the capacity, they do have the responsibility.”

“That is where we are in trouble. We are in trouble. The captain will take the ship on the reef; it’s inevitable.  The Gleaner is saying that the leader of the people of Belize is acting like a man who has a dull axe and is trying to skin a cat in a room full of people and is wielding the axe wildly. That’s not the way to act. Now, so what they are telling you? Have you done the psychiatric test? Have you done the psychological test? Have you done the other tests? You need to do some tests quickly. You have to examine whether this is sanity or something that is not quite sanity. These are serious national issues. We are not dealing with any kind of personality here. The Gleaner is not dealing with any personality. The Justice of the Caribbean Court of Justice, he is not dealing with any personality.  It is the worst kind of criticism and indictment that you can get of a prime minister in our kind of system. They have knocked him down to the floor. They have taken away everything that relates to his credibility and have shredded it in the press worldwide; look at Belize, look at what is going on there.”

As we said, the consultations go north to Corozal Town this Wednesday night.

    No one has to believe that Hubert Elrington is credible. What one has to know is the Ninth Amendment is being foisted on Belizeans without our approval. In our Democracy, this is tantamount to dictatorship and will not work. The people will tell the politicians how we are to be governed and not the politicians. In the past we have tolerated and allowed the arrogance , the hubris, and corruption of politicians. No longer are we going to allow this. Barrow must come to the people on his knees to request changes in any law or the Constitution. Times have changed and the people will never be supine again to the whims, greed, and stupidity of politicians. Parliament must make laws according to the greater good of the people and with our consent. Barrow doesn’t have our consent. And this will be the beginning of the people really managing the politicians. We need educated Parliamentarians who will understand what a democracy really means. We don’t want the likes of Boots who can’t even string together two coherent phrases let alone two sentences. People, we have to pass a law to force politicians to return all trhe resources they have stolen. So we the people say no to the Ninth Amendment totally. Barrow has no authority to make himself and the house representatives absolute. Barrow is a throw back of ancient times when the politicians thought they were absolute. No man or system is absolute. Barrow must go and must take his crazy, demented Ninth Amendment with him and he must be barred for life from participating in any elections. And he is lucky we are not talking about a “fine and confine” situation .
