By Aaron Humes: Opposition Leader Patrick Faber has critiqued the first year of the John Briceño administration in the context of 40 years of independence with unsparing and dour precision.
He has said that many are regretting, like spurned lovers, turning to a new partner after 13 years dancing with the other.
Noting that many of us have never known a Belize other than we know now, the Collet area representative has called for a change in how we are governed, both in mindset and action.
Faber claims that our governmental and societal structures have fallen apart before our very eyes, because we have neglected to maintain them.
In the midst of the pandemic, Faber acknowledged, Belizeans turned to the then-Opposition People’s United Party to restore the flagging economy, deal with crime, to embrace hope. Ten months later, he charged, the favored few are getting fatter while Belizeans have lost their lines of support.
While the UDP accepted defeat gracefully, Faber pointed out, the ruling party has shown no conscience in cutting salaries of public servants, serving the economic masters and creating a nouveau rich group of millionaires, and authoritative figures making decrees from on high for the majority – while granting exceptions for the minority.
Faber called for a reset of the Government’s mission, addressing critical issues and avoiding misinformation and insulation.
The youngest of us must make our voices heard to tell the Government to change course and avoid further missteps, he said.
