Your Belize Progressive Party - BPP is “The New Political and Social Consciousness” of Belize. That is evidenced via our fresh approach toward not only pointing out the issues, but more importantly, providing viable solutions. Neither side of the PUPD non-divide can make such a principled claim. Bearing this in mind, we realise that although we are focused on solutions, there are occasions when we must clearly identify for the Belizean public, just how futile it is for you to place your hope in any of the two political albatroses which continue to pick away at the carcass of what was known as Belize’s economy. A case in point involves the recent article entitled, “Free-Fall Recession”, that was listed as being “contributed” in the 18th September 2016 edition of the Opposition’s mouthpiece, The Belize Times. If much of it either looks and/or sounds familiar, it is...because it quotes verbatim, entire portions of the BPP’s Position Paper #1 concerning the Belizean Economy. This is blatant and shameless plagiarism! In fact, if you wish to check it for yourself, kindly visit the BPP website and click the link for the article, “Barrow’s Bubble Busts - The Belizean Economy in Freefall Recession” - http://www.belizeprogressiveparty.org/single-post/2016/09/12/Barrow%E2%80%99s-Bubble-Bursts-%E2%80%93-The-Belizean-Economy-in-Freefall-Recession Of note, this original position paper of the BPP’s Economic and Finance Team formed the basis of our presentation on Belizean Economy given during the press conference of Thursday, 8th September 2016. Unfortunately, most media houses lent the needed emphasis on that segment of the press conference. Additionally, the paper was posted to our website, in its entirety, on 12th September 2016. Belizeans and true friends of Belize, it is only fair that we call a spade a spade and highlight that for the Opposition to quote excerpts of the BPP’s original intellectual property and to cast it off as though it was simply “contributed”, it is proof positive of just how bankrupt Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition truly is, in terms of providing original ideas and solutions to the wide range of problems whose origins can conceivably be traced to their tenure in office. As we have said on numerous occasions, in deference to Albert Einstein, we remind the people that “A problem cannot be solved by the same consciousness that created it”. Based on this all-too-real scenario, it is apparent the PUP seems to understand it, at the very least. After all, they have resorted to “borrowing” (without permission) the BPP’s analyses and prescription regarding the economy. Hence the operative question is whether the Belizean electorate has come to the aforementioned realisation, as well. In that regard, we again pose the question, “Are you ready to take the much-needed leap of faith, with the only viable political party that represents A New Political and Social Consciousness?” We encourage you to do some soul-searching in light of this latest expose’ and trust that you shall come to the conclusion that placing your hope on either side of the PUPD non-divide is tantamount to insanity. With that, you are invited to join the BPP, as we continue on our well-thought-out course of action toward ushering in an era of sustainable human development. 8867 Today 8867 Tomorrow 8867 Forever

Belize, Sovereign and Free - NO ICJ!
