Adele Ramos wrote:”… amid an unfounded claim by Guatemala over half (and up to all) of Belize’s territory.”  In case anyone missed the point, she reiterated:”… Guatemala takes a vastly different position, claiming half of Belize’s territory and asserting in official communications that it reserves the right to claim all of Belize.”

Evan X Hyde made it abundantly clear what he “was setting out to do: write creatively as a professional.”  Interesting that he should use those words when the very definition of creative writing specifies going outside the bounds of normality. ‘Creative writing is any writing that goes outside the bounds of normal professional, journalistic, academic, or technical forms of literature, typically identified by an emphasis on narrative craft, character development, and the use of literary tropes or with various traditions of poetry and poetics. ’I want to make it very clear that he is totally wrong to try to apply creative writing techniques to the extremely important national issue of Guatemala’s unfounded claim.  Specifically, the circumstances surrounding George Cadle Price’s expulsion from London Talks in 1957 is not something that can be changed or wiped away. Hyde’s orders to Amandala, Krem Radio and Krem TV on how to deal with the memory of Price and the Guatemalan Claim are totally wrong!  Belizeans need to unite as one against the aggressor - Guatemala.  Not PUP, UDP, BPP, VIP, TPP… but one Belize against Guatemala’s unfounded claim. Smith, Richardson, Goldson, Pollard, Jeffery, DePaz, etc., stood against Price’s unhealthy love affair with Guatemala!   They rejected political ties…

FM Elrington has focused on following thru’ with the 1937 plan of Great Britain (force Guatemala to prove a legal basis for its claim in court) and instilling confidence in Belizeans on the soundness of our position; based on credible evidence!  Incidentally Hero Goldson went on record in 1967 as supporting resolution at the ICJ; he scolded Guatemala for her multiple refusals to go to court.  He would similarly scold today’s skeptics and distractors - read his personal statement and the official UN record for yourself.

I will highlight some severe mistakes that Evan X Hyde allowed in his newspaper: Adele wrote:” International Law of the Sea.”  Strictly speaking that entity does NOT exist. The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) also called the Law of the Sea Convention or the Law of the Sea treaty is the international agreement that resulted from the third United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS III), which took place between 1973 and 1982. The people at Kremandala are not journalists; they are creative writers – Belize is not interested in their stories!   Belize demands the facts, plain truths!  Be very careful with words, befriend the dictionary, encyclopedia and Google!

X even got Campton to write foolishness:” Edward A Laing, Jr… made sure that the interest of Belize was assured…Our maritime limits are taken care of by UNCLOS (The United NationsConference on the Laws of the Sea).” Assured? Taken care of? What exactly does the above gobble-gook mean? Is there still a claim or has the claim disappeared?  Talk to me ONLY when the claim has been struck down, negated, removed… and when Guatemala recognizes our land, riverine and marine borders – ALL OF THEM!

In creative writing one has to be neither accurate nor precise that is why I keep saying that no one at Kremandala has what it takes to follow in the footsteps of the competent British Diplomats and Hero Goldson.  Hydes’ unreasonable worship of Price compels them to try and discredit true patriots – I will never allow them to brainwash the public.  All PUP, including Kremandala, need to get over Price and now work to defeat the unfounded Guatemalan claim; this is their civic duty in 2017.  Please recall that in 1798 the Spanish invaders were repelled and that in 1957 Price’s plans to align the Jewel politically with Guatemala were soundly rejected. In 2017 the most important goal is to eventually beat Guatemala soundly at the ICJ.  Down with the unfounded Guatemalan claim!  Down with the revisionist historians!  Down with creative writing!  Belizeans, unite against the unfounded Guatemalan claim!

Washington’s Farewell Address 1796:”I have already intimated to you the danger of parties in the State, with particular reference to the founding of them on geographical discriminations. Let me now take a more comprehensive view, and warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party generally.”  The obsessive compulsive way that Kremandala is behaving is harmful to Belize; it is the duty of ALL of us to stop Evan X Hyde and his many minions; the minute he marches the little devils out, we must go on full alert.  Don’t tell us foolishness; give us the true Belize History facts; we are at battle against the unfounded claim.  The very memory of Goldson marks us for victory!
