Are Sexual Scandal In Politics The Norm?

The sexual scandal that is leading in all news outlets this evening is not new to Belize nor to the world of politics.  In the age of social media, the scandals and situations are only now being made public because of the digital footprints left behind.  The media played the devil’s advocate in our interview with Peyrefitte, asking if politics is not synonymous with sex, and if men in power are not generally drawn to some level of infidelities.  

Michael Peyrefitte, UDP Chairman: “When you say PUDP ministers you have to name names you know because it’s not all of us. It’s not all of us at all who attain certain positions in government who feel the need to express themselves that way because they’re excited at this new found interest in themselves. It’s not all of us that suffer that. It’s not all of us that suffer that. So I mean you cannot say and paint it with a broad brush that it’s everybody. And yes I agree that there could be, this could be a ripe time for a code of ethics, a code of conduct to say look if you agree or accept to enter public life where you’re enjoying the resources paid by the public to you then there is a certain expectation of your behavior, there’s a certain expectation as to how you carry yourself and what you do. It is something that’s totally wroth exploring. I’m all for saying a person is innocent until proven guilty too I’m not accusing the minister of being guilty of anything, that has to be proven in a court of law however they’re speaking things about him that are very very serious.”
