UDP Senator Michael Peyrefitte Urges Government to focus on Belize

UDP Senator Michael Peyrefitte retorted in the Senate today following the statements made by Senators Eamon Courtenay and Janelle Chanona.  Essentially, Peyrefitte chastised the two to pay attention to their own country, as opposed to what is happening in the Middle East.

Michael Peyrefitte, United Democratic Party:I hear my colleagues talk about the concern for Palestine and Israel and of course we should be all concerned about all lives wherever they may be but let me say that while we as a human being we have to be concerned about every part of the world I think it would be remiss of us while we are following wars and act of wars abroad that there is terrorist activity in San Pedro and we need to be concerned about that too and first since Madam President as they say in the Caribbean, I think it’s Jamaica, “the Parson christen ih pickney first.” So forgive me for worrying about Belize before I worry about any other party of the world.”
