I guess every organization needs a hatchetman, someone who will deliver distasteful messages or perform unpleasant assignments. The largest organization in Belize is the public service, and in my time the man considered to be the ruling PUP?s no. 1 hatchetman was a man called ?Michael John? Hulse. Wherever he is, I want to tell him, ?no hard feelings,? but Michael Hulse did the hatchet job on me one time in a memorable way.
