By Aaron Humes: Barely a month into his return to public life, has the camaraderie between Leader of the United Democratic Party (UDP) Moses “Shyne” Barrow and former leader Patrick Faber soured?

The two men along with former leadership contender Tracey Taegar-Panton reached an accord after Faber returned to the House of Representatives in July and vowed to work together to heal divisions in the party from their running leadership battle over the last two years.

But cracks are starting to show if recent social media posts by Faber are any indication.

In a message appended to a video narrated by excommunicated party member Delroy Cuthkelvin from the “UDP Coalition for Unity & Reform,” Faber wrote on his page on Tuesday, “The UDP needs unity and the nation needs the UDP. We’ve given unity a chance for the sake of the Party and the Nation. It is now clear that those running the Party insist on doing things their way and consistently violating the UDP constitution. For the sake of the Party and the Country, then, we must take a stand. Indeed, we ask the blessings of the Almighty as we stand up for what’s right, in order to rescue our Party and save our Country,” ending by stating that “we support the main points and spirit” of the UDP Coalition video.

Taegar-Panton, responding in a comment below the video to another commenter, stated, “…we must adhere to and respect the Party’s Constitution. Failure to do so is a recipe for disaster. We can do better and we must. We must seek to serve the greatest good. Belize needs a viable opposition. One that is built on integrity, trust, and mutual respect for all parties concerned.” Her “Tracey for Albert” official campaign page also commented to the same effect.

Then a few hours later, Faber addressed Barrow directly, writing, “PL [Party Leader], I don’t appreciate your threats and those of your violent criminal circle. I am not now or not ever a PUP. All who demand you do things according to the constitution and don’t agree with your wrong ways are not PUP! I am not for sale so don’t bet on me…”

Barrow has made it his personal policy not to respond to or discuss what he calls “internal party affairs” publicly, so it remains to be seen how he will handle this sudden dissension in the ranks.
