Mayor says issues with audit report touch on Belizean nationalism

Earlier we heard from Mayor Darrell Bradley supporting the senate select investigation. Today, he was asked about the immigration irregularities that were exposed in the audit, for which an investigation is required. The audit named ministers, past and present, who irregularly intervened in the issuing of visas, nationality certificates and passports to persons who did not meet the requirements. Bradley says Guatemala and passports are national issues that stir up emotions.

“I looked at the audit report and the other information that was put out there. I do believe that parts of it are dealing with institutional matters, reforms that need to be placed to strengthen the bureaucracy in terms of the processing. But I do believe likewise that some things in there are very troubling as a Belizean. I am a U.D.P., I love my country…tomorrow morning, I will be giving a speech in relation to the national day. We are raising flags, we are talking about patriotism, we are talking about honoring Belizean patrimony and I think that a way that we must show that we are honoring that heritage—those who have gone before us George Price, Phillip Goldson—those who gave their lives in the struggle for Belizean sovereignty is that we must ensure that the government works for the people. That is something that I don’t see how anyone would disagree with.”

    And it took you the third term of a UDP Government to realize this??? Seriously?? And do me a huge favor, please don’t invoke George Price’s name!!! You have no shame. You are part of a crooked party that you are now cutting loose because they, in their current form, are a dead weight on your future. Keep Goldson but you new need to add Chairman Mao and Chiang Kai-shek (i.e. Mainland China and Taiwan). How it go??? We no want no Guatemala but we have no problem selling our batty to the Chinese. Do yourself a favour, shut up and don’t compound your misery!! You sound more eloquent with your mouth shut!!!
