A UDP?s opinion

Dear Mr. Editor,

I write with caution, not to create any animosity with the UDP, but rather to place a great concern that I have and possibly many more UDP?s, like myself, who wish not to tread this way.

With the many issues both nationally and locally, I wonder when the Leader of the Opposition, the Hon. Dean Barrow, will start to be the leader of a political party, the UDP, and stop being an attorney.

The subject of Ivan Roberts

Editor AMANDALA

Sir,

I am a member of the Belize Ex-Servicemen League. At a meeting it was mentioned that we have a new treasurer ? Mr. Ivan Roberts.

Ministry of Rural Development writes

Dear Editor,

For general information, the Eldridge/Forest Home submersible water pump was burnt out September 29, and on October 2, the Ministry in charge of Rural Development dispatched its well-rig crew to pull out the damaged pump, replacing it with the rig?s stand-by pump which, unfortunately was also burnt out. Present were Ministry?s Rural Development personnel, the Water Board Chairman and B.E.L.?s Toledo Supervisor to ascertain the cause of pumps being burnt out.

The man from Finca Solana

Editor AMANDALA

Dear Sir,

According to historians, Antonio Soberanis Gomez said that, ?Trade Unionism is the only medium by which the working class can get a square deal.? The support that was given to the People?s United Party, organized from the ?People?s Committee?, was a dream sold to the community, saying that in return they would gain a better future for them and their children. It has stayed at that ? a dream. After 55 years of struggle our people, the Maya ? Mestizos and the African-Mulattos, are in the same condition as in the beginning, except for the few indoctrinated.

Mr. Price, why exclude us from the national anthem?

Editor AMANDALA

Dear Sir,

The Chilam Balam says that: This war shall not be lost here on this land because this land shall be born again.?

It is natural that as human beings we make mistakes. Even though so, it takes a lot of courage and humbleness to see our mistakes and amend them. I believe that the People?s United Party?s Father ? George Cadle Price, made a mistake. I am not disrespecting Mr. Price and it?s not in my intention. What I want as ?a son of the Belizean soil? is to understand why Mr. Price had accepted the wordings for the national anthem.

Thoughts from the Finca Solana

Editor AMANDALA

Dear Sir,

I met a friend of mine and I told him that I would like him to be my future Prime Minister. I was and I am serious by saying so to him. But for that to happen we need some reform to our constitution. There is no way my friend can run as a candidate of his political party or as an independent one. Because the constitution of our country doesn?t give the space for an independent candidate for Prime Minister, much less an Elected Senate. And the internal constitution of our two major political parties doesn?t give space for such democratic process.
