At the core of Guatemala's claim to Belizean territory is the Anglo-Guatemalan Treaty of 1859.

A very good read for those that like to discuss and learn about issues affecting Belize.
I think, and this is just me... Belizeans have become too dependent on the Govt.. We expect them to do everything for us if possible. We have become complacent, my self included.... Time to stand up and start doing something. Many ask what can I do by myself? What we don't realize is that by… Continue reading Thought of the day – June 16
Mere weeks after a national election, it is well for us to stop for a moment and analyze calmly and without prejudice the effect on our Nation of a victory by either of the major political parties. The problem of the electorate is far deeper, far more vital than the continuance of the representation and/or… Continue reading What’s the Deal?

Notice the trend for the last 30 plus years of politics in Belize.... Manifestos generally carry a lifespan of 5 years or less. There are rarely any plans made for Belize that one can really say will need a couple decades to work on and accomplish. Why is that? I think that a manifesto that… Continue reading My Brain, It Wonders
I am of the opinion that our politicians have the mentality of 5 year terms. I only plan for the 5 years I will serve. We need to start thinking long term goals. I want to hear solutions that we can run with for the next 50 years. Build a new football stadium, Develop teen… Continue reading It’s all in the planning you know
