P.M. won’t share podium with IDB President

Dean Barrow

The Prime Minister’s ire remained squarely on Moreno; the warm relationship now turned to one of heated friction.  The PM made it clear that he will not share a podium with the IDB president in the interim. But where do the consequences of the fall-out leave Belize?


Prime Minister Dean Barrow

“Moreno did suggest that the policy-based loan could still be available but post restructuring and I’ve indicated [that] “wi noh wah cut off wi nose fu spite wih face.”  I’ve said to you earlier that I’ve put on record how I feel, at the same time Moreno having failed us, his staff I have to insist, including the representative here, rose magnificently to the challenge.  There’s no doubt but that they were batting for Belize so we can’t throw out the baby with the bathwater although Moreno is no baby.  So, so no man, having placed on records our disgust I intend to move on.  I won’t be sharing any podium with Moreno anytime soon, but Lord, institutionally the relations can, should and will continue.”


According to the PM, the first round of meetings with the Creditor’s Committee will be held after the US thanksgiving holiday. So for now, the US has blocked a loan request and the Government is publicly and personally chastising the IDB president.

    “How I feel” is a narcissistic basis for making national policy.

    Our PM is having a tantrum. If I were his daddy,I’d whip him good and put him in his room for a good long time.

    Is our PM still mentally competent? Another question that begs an answer.

    I’ve said it before and i will say it again USA is a very close ally to Guatemala and has not done anything whatsoever for Belize.

    But yet we Belizeans keep idolizing these silly Americans!

    If you realize what is happening around the world – nobody likes Americans and we should do the same and forget about them!

    To hell with them…

    Mr. Barrow your people are with you and confident you will find another way to fix this situation!

  3. it's just that simple says:

    “nobody likes Americans and we should do the same and forget about them!
    To hell with them…”

    quarter of Belizeans live in the US, many have dual citizenship; just shot them in the back.
    keep digging your self in, fool.
    Someday you might succeed turning Belize into the next Haiti or Zimbabwe.
