According to recent statistics from the Statistical Institute of Belize, the Belizean economy grew by a whopping 8.7% in the last quarter. That growth was attributed in part to a significant increase in the consumption of alcohol.


According to Statistician Jefte Ochaeta, “beer increased its production by 13.2 percent, and rum by 74.4 percent. The main reason is that in Belize we are enjoying our liquor.”


One member of the UDP who has certainly contributed his fair share to the growth in GDP was at it again. Sometime late last night/early this morning, a Government Press Office employee crashed an SUV into a metal post near the entrance to the City proper on the George Price (Western) Highway.
Sources, say that Fortunato Noble appeared to be under the influence. Another source reports that notorious Mace Bearer, Brian “Yellowman” Audinette arrived on the scene shortly after the crash and removed the license plates from the vehicle and shuttled Noble away.


We’ll provide more on this as soon as the information is available.


Noble walked away unhurt, sources say.
