PM Barrow to seek medical attention in the U.S.

Dean Barrow

Prime Minister Dean Barrow hopes for an answer from Elvin Penner by tomorrow. It’s not exactly an ultimatum, but the PM leaves the country en route to LA on Wednesday. The purpose of the trip is partly official, as Barrow will be meeting with Belizean-Americans, but the PM will also be consulting on his health – his back, to be more specific. For weeks now he has been experiencing chronic and acute pain. He hopes that doctors in LA may be able to help.

“Indeed there are three herniated discs. When I do a tour such as I did on the weekend, I take a lick. But you are right, I don’t want people to think I am trotting this out to try and gain sympathy and it is always open to me to leave office and not have that sort of a worry. If I stay as I’m doing, then I don’t have a right to complain too much do I and that’s how I try to handle it. But it’s been flaring up rather more than usual lately so I am hoping that I can get some relief from the doctors. They are now telling me about some device that you can implant under the skin that emits some sort of signals with lead wires to the spine and those signals block your brain from recording pain. All sounds to me very fantastical, but at this point, I’m willing to try anything. So I’ll see how it goes when I get over there.”

    Lol! We no sorry fu you. Always hiding behind your back. It’s so screwed up because of all the dirty scandals you have been carrying around for 6 years. Don’t worry, u don’t have my sympathy. As for the electrical device, they should insert it into your brain so u can come out of your delusional state. Belizean don’t believe a damn thing u are telling them. They have pass judgement on you and your fellow crooks! No need to go to the Appeals Court on this one. Trust me!

  5. Fia says:

    All those medical expense coming outa Belizeans pockets. This just shows that Barrow can cover up and smack the people in the face saying ” See, I can do anything I desire”.

    the ship is sinking and the rats are jumping ship.

    blood in the water, the sharks have arrived.

    who is going to jail and who is not?
    what will then next government look like?
    Will it be a unity government, compelled by the people to account for the criminality?

  7. Elgin Martinez says:

    What about trying to improve the medical facilities in Belize PM?

  8. Al Rich says:

    How nice he can afford to go to LA for treatment. The poor people of Belize has to sit and take their lumps depending on the inept medical system that exist in the country. How many women died from cancer because they could not get proper treatment, his wife lived because he could send her away for treatment. Please people demand more from this government.
