Is B.T.L. Actually BPL – Barrow Pinata Limited?

Kareem Musa

Musa also turned up the heat on Belize Telemedia Limited, nationalized by the government in 2009. While the government touts this acquisition in consecutive budgets as one of the stellar achievements of its time, Musa claimed in his presentation that perhaps the company should be renamed BPL, or Barrow Pinata Limited.


Kareem Musa, Area Representative, Caribbean Shores

“The Prime Minister glorifies the B.T.L. and B.E.L. acquisitions as his crowning achievement in an attempt to try and create some sort of legacy for himself. But Mister Speaker as each year passes by, whenever he mentions this supposed nationalization, his applause gets lower and lower as even his own people are on to him. His own people are now realizing that this was all just one big family hustle. Twenty-seven million for Lois and Denys and Naima and the top job at B.T.L. for his son. His text-savvy son; that dah weh ih call ahn…Anwar.”

“I listened to a while ago from the member of Caribbean Shores and he did something I did not like. He started calling names and names of people’s wife, etc. And I don’t want this to get out of hand. He is a young member ina this House. Stop call people’s wife name and call people’s wife or ex-wife name in parliament because when yo got sash window, yon oh throw stone sir. Sir and a lot of names can be called. The Leader of the Opposition, just after accepting his post of leader, said that we must be friendly to one another. We must discuss the issues; there must be no name calling, insinuation and aspersion and people character and people name. Be careful cause this side could call people name and she wah lotta thing.”

    Time for a commercial announcement…

    “Digicell just got better… Now international roaming is automatic! Do you know what this means?…”

    It means that once you visit the western border, upon entering Benque Viejo, your DigiCell phone enters international roaming by itself, and you end up paying more for the calls you make and text messages you send, and pay for the calls you receive! It means more money from you to the Barrow family! Isn’t that great?!? … If you read in between the lines, it also means that Digicell considers Benque Viejo part of Guatemala! Hooraayyy!!!

    Now back to the news.

    Finnegan should also pack up and retire. His rhetoric is old.

    Did the kettle just cuss the pot black? Of all the people talking about no name calling – the king of illiteracy and disrespect. You’ve said it right, indeed, Finnegan, if yuh live eena glass house, noh throw stones.
