    public officers?
    they already get the UDP connect. cousins, brothers, nieces and nephews are all take care

    UDP is going to break the teacher union, and fire them all. Belize is going for the worst education in the world. who needs teachers? We only need gang leaders to teach them. This will be another reason to pay gang members as government employees so they can get in on the action.

  2. Concern says:

    It is natural based on the amount of taxes government is charging us that the teachers and Public officers need their raise of pay. You break a hundred dollars today and you can take the goods in one hand for your family. In fact when you get home you are wondering if you lost some money.

    If we buy one single nail, we pay tax on that nail. When Dean said that the poor making less than $24,000.00 should be happy, because they are exempted from tax, the man was lying. We pay tax on almost everything, in fact even on talking via phone. We would have been better off today if we didn’t have to pay so much taxes. To ramp up spending in Cayo is to put money in cronies hands, when the teachers and public officers need their raise of pay! Money in some of the POLITICIANS HANDS TOO and their drivers is the delivery man.

    Dean is already a gang leader paying them under the table, look at his son, why do you all think they lock him up in the USA, why they don’t fix all the feeder road for farmers with the money they will spend with damn penner, put him in jail

    We need our teachers. They are one of the few bright lights at the end of the tunnel. But still would like to know exactly why JUST Cayo NE, and not the rest of the country, and exactly what the money would be going towards in Cayo NE?

    watching the video clip from barrows promise to the villagers in duck run , my question is why until now he comes by to offer them to fix culverts, a new school building? so according the reporter the villagers have never been visited bythe pm, what about that! secondly he talks about millions and millions in his coffers, why not fix the damn! road that runs from san ginacio through bullet tree, snata familia, billy white and reaching spanish lookout. We can clearly see that all they came for is to brain wash this villagers and get them hype about the promises he made, why does the media doesn’t come and see if he has fix the culverts as he said”starting from this long weekend” has anything been done?

    Call elections now. We cannot keep these crooks for three more years. Any Minister that was ivolved or incompetent cannot be talking about their clean reputation if all this human trafficking occured under their watch. This hustling will bring down many people who want to defend the indefenceless. Elections Now or Revolution!
