No Ham No “Nyam”

Belize City, December 4, 2012

There will be no ham fest or feast this year. Readers will recall that last year 2.4 million dollars in ham and goodies were shared out through UDP standard bearers in their constituencies. It was all paid for by taxpayers’ monies, stolen from the Government treasury. Theft we are told is taking what does not belong to you and permanently depriving the owners/tax payers of their money.

Last year’s ham fest was a form of bribery because the government was getting ready for early General Elections, one that they barely won by the skin of their thieving teeth.

It is not clear whether the official visit of the esteemed Minister Lois Farrakhan to Belize this week has influenced the UDP infidels who traffic in ham for votes. The Minister is a devout Muslim and the Muslim religion like the Old Testament of the Christian Bible frowns on those who eat the swine.

There will be a minimum of ham distribution by UDP standard bearers this year. In place of a ham, a box of groceries and crate of soft drink, the UDP’s will be giving out $60 and $70 to their voters. In the case of Patrick Faber of the Collet Division, his voters have been informed to start visiting the office to beg for their $70 instead of ham and turkey.

In the case of Queen Square Division, where PM Barrow has not held a Wednesday clinic since February of 2008, Sister B has been informing voters that the place to beg for $50 is at a residence that she frequents at the corner of University Drive and Seashore Drive.

A check with the residents of Port Loyala reveals that Boots Martinez has not yet prepared the list of who will receive $50 in envelopes. In the case of Lake I, which the PUP narrowly lost, thanks to you know who, Mark King has not yet told his committee or voters how he will handle the ham and the “nyam” behind there.

Mark King, you will recall, was embroiled in a fiasco last week when twenty one unfortunate residents suddenly found themselves homeless as a result of their homes being burnt by fire. King could not be found to offer any assistance to those who had lost everything in the fire. It was only after a public scandal that a sheepish King showed up for a photo op.

Those who the Government have made so desperate that even $50 will go a long way need to be reminded to locate their UDP standard bearers early as only a limited amount of ham money will be distributed. This, of course, only applies to a certain type of UDP supporters. Even in the free-for-all last December, many UDPs were bypassed and others were told that they came too late. Many were turned back as their names were not on the ham list. The same whap is expected to be repeated this year. So, go early to avoid the embarrassment of being turned away empty handed.

This year 2012 has been the hardest year for Belizeans since self-government which was 1964. Poverty has reached new levels. No money is circulating. There were no summer jobs. There will be no Christmas jobs for young people and poor people to buy even the basics for this year’s Christmas.

Neither Santa Claus nor the spirit of Christmas will visit majority of Belizeans this Christmas. No amount of ham or $50 can change this harsh cold reality.

Life was never this hard for Belizeans but you can bet Barrow’s family and close friends will gobble up the ham and “nyam” like Pharaohs and Hollywood stars.
