SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE ACTED IN CONTEMPT OF THE BELIZEAN PEOPLE

Today, the Hon John Briceño was abruptly halted in a crass and orchestrated manner from debating the Perdomo Bond Loan Write-off bill.  Here is the exchange that is one more to be added to the UDP Halls of Infamy.

John Briceño, Leader of the Opposition: “We had to wait for it to come back from house committee.”

Laura Longsworth, Speaker of the House of Representatives: “I think we have moved beyond that.”

John Briceño: “Sorry?”

Laura Longsworth: Yes, those were presented for debate.”

John Briceño: “Sorry?”

 Laura Longsworth: I said no we will not be doing that today.”

 John Briceño: But these have already gone to the house committee now it is coming back.”

 Laura Longsworth: But there was no debate, no one pick it up the last (House) meeting.”

 John Briceño: “Because we were waiting for it to go house committee and for it to come back and be debated.”

 Laura Longsworth: “No that won’t be happening.”

The speaker was well aware of the magnitude of this bill and she showed her super bias towards the UDP and in my opinion was thoroughly in contempt of the desires of the Belizean people—the entity she really serves.

Ahead is the correspondence served by the Leader of the Opposition to the Speaker which is to the point and right on in defence of Democracy and the Belizean people.
