How many of you, Dear Readers, in the wake of public revelations, are still wondering why Lucas the Concas was so desperate for executive power inside Sketteldom? He first had his eyes set on becoming Sketteldom’s national campaign manager, but someone inside Sketteldom smelt the rat and kept him away from the cheese.

*****

Although everyone knew it all along, it has NOW been publicly and officially confirmed that the Concas is a crony skettel parading as a businessman. A genuine businessperson survives despite which party is in power. On the contrary, a crony, parading as a businessman, quickly collapses in the absence of the milking cow.

*****

The nation has certainly not forgotten about the 38 million dollars invested in that public asset once known as the Belize Port Authority which, when added to the many millions of dollars in equipment and infrastructural value of the port,  was all given away to the Concas by the PUP for only 40 million dollars. Oh what a crying shame and blatant abuse of public funds it was and continues to be.

*****

In addition to the port facility, its equipment and other assets, including the infusion of that new 38 million dollar development, the deal was further sweetened when the Concas was given exclusive rights to charge for all maritime activities in the Belize City harbor. In other words for example when bulk fuel arrived at Sol’s Depot, although the Concas lifted not even a straw, the law, created by his PUP, mandated that the Concas collect a hefty sum with each and every shipment of bulk fuel.

*****

The DFC and Social Security was the national twin breasts sucked dry by the Concas and other Skettelian cronies.  The nation has likewise not forgotten the DFC deal where the Concas made it quite clear that he had no intention of paying back the people’s money loaned to him. He instead struck a deal to pay back a mere twenty five cents on the dollar. In other words his DFC loan was considered paid in full with him only paying back a quarter of what he actually owed. Carolyn, the Mahogany Skettel would say: “This is how we do it in the PUP” and to hell with what the people think. This is among one of the many reasons why they NOW find themselves on that side of the aisle in such very small numbers.

*****

It was widely known in Belmopan, during those days back THEN, that when the Concas walked the corridors of power in the capital city, people trembled including high, high level public officers and most ministers of his Skettelian administration. 

*****

Having failed to get his sticky fingers on Skettelian campaign funds, as campaign manager, Lucas the Concas skettel is NOW rapidly disintegrating as his smoke screen blows away with just a little breeze. But guess what, while there is certainly none of us, on this side of the aisle, shedding any tears for the Concas, there are quite a few on his side of the aisle, who are singing glory hallelujah.  

*****

NOW, Dear Readers, do you see why these people, all of them, should never, ever be given not even the remote chance of getting anywhere near the people’s money? All of these revelations are NOW coming to light for one, and only one, reason: We must open our eyes and see the evil of their ways so that we may be spared the wrath of those with evil intent and personal self interests at the expense of an entire nation.

******

Incidentally, Lucas, don’t get us wrong, we, on this side of the aisle, were rooting for you to become skettel campaign manager. Lucas, do you know why we were rooting for you? It’s very simple indeed: We knew that, like the DFC debacle, you would have given Sketteldom only twenty five cents on the dollar from the campaign funds you collected, but, like mi granny always said “thief know thief” and so it is no secret that the man who threw the proverbial spanner into the works is none other than his royal lowness, the Lord and PUPpet master of Sketteldom using that first hand access he has to your confidential banking information.

*****

While the Octopus PUPpet master might have come to the realization that he has lost the BTL battle, it now looks like, at the expense of the Concas (a former loyal subject of his), his tentacles is NOW closing around the nation’s largest seaport facility, an exclusive contract for which he will never get from the People’s Government, led by the Hon. Dean Barrow. If the PUPpet master has learnt anything from the BTL matter, THEN it would serve him, after relieving the Concas of the people’s port facility, to do the right thing and give it back to the Government and people of Belize where it rightfully belongs.  

*****

THEN, if he is truly serious about doing the right thing, the next venture for the Lord PUPpet master should be to make the move against Gordon Smith Musa and bring back the nation’s only international airport facility. They once spoke about “Tek Back Belize” to this we say, let the march continue as we move to “Tek Back” all our national assets that were sold/given away by that abusive, corrupt, heartless and callous maladministration just gone.

*****

These are critical times, hence there is no time to waste right NOW on those useless characters like that drunken, bald, homeless (among other things) former editor of the Belize Slimes who, in his weak mind, thinks that he can fool anyone into believing that he is not authoring those other two columns in the Slimes. Under other circumstances we would have sought confirmation from those slack jaws at the Slimes, but there is no need for that since even a Standard IV child could have figured this one out but, at his Standard III level, this useless character thinks that he is putting one over those of us out here with higher learning.

*****

Incidentally, what’s up with Johnny Mentira, has he given up his Hypocrite of the Week Column. The rat has long since been let go from the job so there is no harm, at this stage, in disclosing that, in one of his usual bouts of  drunkenness, it was the same bald, homeless……former editor of the Slimes who spilled the beans on Johnny Mentira.

*****

By the way Mr. Deputy Prime Minister, thank you for providing that new name for the character who is leading Sketteldom nowhere. From hence forth THEN & NOW is officially christening him as Johnny Sin Verguenza (Johnny Without Shame). Just look at how this man, who wants to lead a nation, continues to leave the widow and children of Anastacio Gutierrez out there on the “massy” of the world. Mark my words, like the Concas, this one is coming back to bite Johnny Sin Verguenza and, trust me, it’s gonna bite him real, real hard.

Lady G Michael, listen to the clock on the wall as time ticks away. Time is running out on you. When are you going to make right your ways of the past? Amen and Amen.
