By Norris Hall: My dear friends and readers: Sandra and I wish all of you the fulfillment of a Manifesto promise made to us more than two thousand years ago: Peace and Goodwill.

It was a challenging year for mankind all over the world. And even so, when our very survival depends on our unity, the seeds of religious and political discord threaten our survival on this abused Earth-our habitat.

I have been content to make my small contribution to the national political discourse. I am thankful for your readership, support and even your disagreements with regard to my commentaries. This is the only way that democracy can serve the best interests of the nation and our people.

I thank my friends in the diaspora and at Breaking Belize News (BBN), for giving me a platform for the sharing of my perspective on national issues. I am also grateful for my few remaining friends in the government who have had the maturity to engage me on the issues.

I took no joy in the public disagreement I had with our Prime Minister. Disagreements can be healthy. How we resolve our disagreements is what matters. It is important for all of us to remember that power is a potent aphrodisiac than can be dangerous.

I am pleased that I have been able to have had a cordial conversation with our Prime Minister in an informal setting and without the usual attendant protocols. I am not one for the latter but I do have a sense of occasion.

I have assured the Prime Minister, that as a life supporter of the People’s United Party and as a journalist, I reserve the right to call out this government, MY government, whenever I deem it necessary to disagree and in the absence of any mature debate from the Opposition. The PUP appears to be drifting to the right, while I remain left of centre in the interest of the equitable distribution of the nation’s wealth.

I will be taking a hiatus from my weekly commentaries during this Christmas Season.

Sandra and I send our very best wishes to you and your families for a very happy and peace filled Christmas and a fulfilling and rewarding 2022.
