Belize: Put the National Interest First

Sir Ronald Sanders | Caribbean 360

BELMOPAN, Belize – Narrow party-political ambitions frequently thwart the wider national interest in practically every country.

The world is watching this play-out now as a public spectacle in Britain where the Brexit question continues to be deeply immersed in both personal political purposes and a struggle for the supremacy of one political party over another. At the end of it, Britain will be a much-diminished nation economically. It will also have little clout in the international community.

But it is not in Britain alone that this tragedy of political ambition over wider national interest is being displayed. On April 3, seven days before a referendum is scheduled to be held in Belize to determine if the country should take its border dispute with Guatemala for final arbitration to the International Court of Justice (ICJ), the opposition political party, the Peoples’ Unity Party (PUP), obtained an injunction from the Chief Justice, Kenneth Benjamin, to stay it.           Continue reading

Georgetown: City Council Taxes Arrears is a massive problem – By Freddie Kissoon

City Council taxes: This nation is a cemetery

The more you live here you more you find this country obnoxious and surreal. The more you live here, the more the existence of this society torments your mind and you want to know if in the international community of nations, we are not the number one country for having no logical reason to exist.

Civilized society remains civilized because it is run by the rule of law. When humans disregard the rule of law and they do so with impunity, you no longer have law and order and breakdown is inevitable.

In every country, the rule of law stands between beastly descent and modern life. This pattern does not seem to exist in Guyana. I predict early collapse of this society if fragility of the rule of law gets worse.    Continue reading

Fly Jamaica makes staffers redundant; hopes for return in “couple” of months

Ronald Reece

Fly Jamaica has told its staffers that it is experiencing cash problems and are making redundant effective tomorrow  – March 31, 2019.

Fly Jamaica is also hoping to start flying again in a few months but, in the meantime, a sloth in processing refunds continues to upset passengers who were left in limbo.

According to a letter yesterday to staffers, Chairman, Captain Ronald Reece, said that a lack of an aircraft and the impact on the finances has caused the decision.

“It is with great sadness and remorse that we have arrived at this juncture. We are hoping for funding but that has been slow in coming, therefore for the time being, no other resources or options exist.”      Continue reading

USA: Mueller report: No Proof of Russia-Trump Collusion – 2016 Elections

Mueller report: No Obstruction of Justice by Trump proven

Robert Mueller

WASHINGTON,  (Reuters) – U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller found no evidence of collusion between President Donald Trump’s election team and Russia in the 2016 election, Attorney General William Barr said today. Barr said he had determined that Trump did not obstruct justice during the investigation.

In a major political victory for Trump, Mueller, who spent nearly two years investigating allegations that Russia meddled in the election to help Trump defeat his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, did not find evidence that Trump’s campaign “conspired or coordinated with the Russian government,” according a summary of Mueller’s findings.  Continue reading

Brexit Has Triggered Britain’s Most Ambitious Migration Exercise Ever – By Yasmeen Serhan | The Atlantic

Brexit Has Triggered Britain’s Most Ambitious Migration Exercise Ever

The British government is preparing to absorb millions of EU citizens into its immigration system after Brexit. Some fear that it is a “crisis in waiting”.

Yasmeen Serhan | The Atlantic 

Rebecca Goodall first moved to Britain when she was 10, and lived in the country on and off before settling here permanently in 2010. She teaches real estate at a university about two hours north of London, has a child who was born and raised here, and speaks unaccented English — she has, she told me in frustration, a “bloody master’s degree”.

But until recently, Goodall didn’t know if she could still live here.

As a German citizen, Goodall is among the millions of European Union nationals living in the U.K. whose immigration status was thrown into doubt after the 2016 Brexit referendum. Under the bloc’s rules, EU nationals can freely live, work, and settle anywhere across its 28 member states. Putting an end to this free flow of migration from Europe was one of the central planks of the Brexit debate and, now that Britain is leaving, all EU nationals who wish to remain in the country indefinitely need to apply for a new post-Brexit migration designation, otherwise known as “settled status”.     Continue reading
