Boots Says Godfrey Smith Did the Right Thing to Resign

Anthony “Boots” Martinez

Earlier this week, the P.U.P. confirmed that after reaching a mutual understanding, the party’s national campaign manager, Godfrey Smith, who took over the post in early 2014, was stepping down. Senior U.D.P. Minister, Anthony “Boots” Martinez, says Smith was “man enough” to do it and that P.U.P. Party Leader, Francis Fonseca, should follow suit.

“I felt that unlike the party leader, he was man enough to know that he was campaign manager over the last year and change and lost every election. And so I think it is time for man with good grace to step off. I thought that the first thing in my view to have happened was for Francis Fonseca to take aback. I mean when you look in terms of everything—and I hope he stays cause its only better for the United Democratic Party—I hope that he stays. Because when you look at what had happened, I think he will go down in history as one of the worst leaders to serve during a tenure, including losing three elections in one year and the most deflection of people of prominent stature from a party within his rule.”

    LAAAWWDDD HAVE MUCY! Did anyone understand what this dumb, dumb C…k H..d just said? He has advice now, “Mr. Danimoes?”. What is Belize coming to? No party actually have a political strategy or someone motivational enough to swing an election on either side. Yes, PUP needs to change some of its members and Francis is not a charismatic person nor leader. The only thing really hindering PUP from getting in power is that UDP has more of the stolen money to give away. Believe me, that’s the only language Cruffy understand, “Free stuff and handouts.”
