By Aaron Humes:They never approved of it for what should be obvious reasons.
But after Thursday’s shenanigans in the Old Capital, the United Democratic Party does not see the point of continuing the Commission of Inquiry into the sale of Government assets in the last year of the Barrow administration.
What would have been the fourth hearing of the Commission died intestate, a casualty of the trade unions breaking faith with the Government.
With the former Minister Anthony Martinez the latest to appear, one can hardly blame the Opposition for suggesting that the Andrew Marshalleck-led initiative is a witchhunt targeting those of red stripes (put rather diplomatically as “the current administration’s political opponents.”)
But with someone in Belmopan allegedly intervening even to deny the unions airtime on grievances concerning the current administration’s practices in that regard, Belchina questions the point of the entire exercise and how much longer it will continue when the Government can literally not afford anything else?
The answer to that last question is to be determined.
