The Belizean people find ourselves between the proverbial “rock and a hard place”. “Damned if you do and damned if you don’t.” The PM is now forcing a referendum that he thinks is the best for Belize, but lots of us out here are not sure about this decision. The PUP is against going to the ICJ in a rush. “Fools rush in where angels fear to tread”?
We are seeing two different kinds of leadership in our major political parties.
PM Barrow has his party firmly behind him. How many willingly and how many unwillingly is the question. LOO Johnny Briceno is obeying his party, even though he had said yes to the ICJ before, because the majority of them are against going to the ICJ.
One likes to “govern” and the other says, “Serve the people”. Who is right and who is wrong will go down in the annals of history. One to be praised and one to be booed. Only time will tell.
With the new “Act” we are obligated to say “Yes” or “No” to the ICJ, sooner rather than later.
May the Good Lord help and protect us.
