To recall or not recall

Dean Barrow

Whatever the result of the criminal investigation, the PM is convinced that Penner, in the PM’s own words, was ‘damn’ wrong. So wrong in fact that he will never be allowed back into Cabinet to harm the U.D.P. So said the leader of the nation! But while the U.D.P. is shielded from Penner’s wrongness, the same courtesy was not afforded to the people of Cayo Northeast.


Prime Minister Dean Barrow

“Penner is not only removed from the U.D.P. Cabinet, Penner can never return to the U.D.P. cabinet. Thus there is no question of Penner being able to do any further harm to my administration or the governance of that administration. Let us get that absolutely clear. On the question of his position as area representative, this wonderful democracy of ours and the reform agenda of the United Democratic Party provide an opportunity for an elected member of the house who is guilty of wrongdoing to be recalled. The same rules, regulations, procedures that govern the election of someone to office, govern the removal of someone from office. The same democracy that allowed Penner to contest and win an election in Cayo Northeast, allows him to say to his constituents in Cayo Northeast, I have sin against you grievously, I am terribly wrong, I am in full atonement mode. I would ask that you believe me when I say that I am sorry and I would ask that you give me a second chance.”

    talking like a defense lawyer, not a patriot, wrong answer.
    How about prison? Just because they are elected they are above the law?
    UDP, PUP, PNP, VIP, regardless, jail time times two.

    it is a major crime, plus broke a major oath to the people to protect the country, another crime.

    and since your are his leader, the leader must pay first as an example to the country.
    pleading guilty would be best and easiest, but knowing you and your ilk, this will be a fight to the bitter end with so many crimes in the docket with so many cowards who betrayed the country.

    Lol! He authored the atonement/redemption code. It’s called the Recall Amendment. He clearly recognized that saying I am so sorry is not enough and u have to go through a more rigorous process. Now he is saying dah no so! Does he take us for total asses and idiots? Stop intimidating the voters of Cayo NE who want to sign those signatures or u will make it worse for yourself.

    Can anyone give us a valid reason, why we should keep a useless standard bearer in position, collecting our money, driving our vehicle, getting benefits, while we the people are suffering. Do we have that much money, that we should consider wasting it on someone who have already collected in advance?
