After lashing out at the Prime Minister of Belize during a conversation held with a person still unknown and being recorded, Melvin Hulse took the threats of the Prime Minister serious and apologized immedietly. He, without a doubt flip-flopped as one minute he was making damminig accusation against the Honorable Dean Barrow and his government and the next he was practically begging for forgiveness. But that’s probably because he knew the wrath of the P.M would come down upon him with no questions asked. In the recording, Hulse, who is the U.D.P Standard Bearer for the Stann Creek West constituency and also a former U.D.P. Minister speaks about the unnecessary spending of hundreds of thousands of dollars in order for the P.M to remain as Prime Minister and the excessive spending for bi-elections. Hulse’s remarks could see him being stripped of his position as Standard Bearer of the party or even booted out of the UDP. What the consequences will be is yet to be known but what we can tell you is that Hulse has asked for forgiveness. Here is what he told Love News last night.
Melvin Hulse - U.D.P Standard Bearer for the Stann Creek West
“For somebody of PM’s caliber, yes, I complained but Dean has always known that, but without reservation, it’s not something I would have ever said on any rostrum, or TV or channel, I was only complaining. I was complaining, they were complaining and they taped me. So, let me address that first part; (1) without any reservation or hesitation, I’m made to understand it mentioned Mahmud; man, look I hope that this doesn’t cause him and his family any flipping thing and I apologize because it was never meant to hurt anybody and definitely, I will apologize to Dean. Hopefully, one day we’ll find out who took a private conversation and tried to hurt the man and put a bad spin on this man’s reputation. I have worked with Dean from 1988; I have never not support him, nor the party or the UDP Government. Yes, it looks bad right now and yes, they are attacking me and I am the one that ran off about it but this is not going to hurt Dean Barrow because nobody can question; nobody has developed this country more than him. So I don’t know why they are creating this problem. I can imagine they air something like this about the man’s character or integrity, you can imagine how his family feels. Without question, I apologize to him and with the same token I can’t just leave the PM by himself. I am a family member of the UDP; have been for a lifetime now and so this in turn makes the party look bad because they aired some horrible things I said about the Party Leader. Now, we go from Prime Minister to Part Leader and there is only a degree of apologies and regret because me, I have never made the UDP party look bad and I would never. The UDP is the UDP. I can say, sitting here, that is who developed and without any reservation from since the UDP started to win in 1984; every development that has come about in Stann Creek West and you know, that is my home, has been under UDP and I’m sorry if Stann Creek West people got caught up in it because they end up now where you hear the Standard Bearer having attacked the leader and making the party look bad but Stann Creek West are solid people; they know I am a workaholic they know that I run off. So, I apologize if they end up being in a limbo or end up feeling like that I really feel bad about that.”
