Sometimes, there are situations that most of us would think could never happen, but then it does happen. Then to our amazement it evolves into an impossible scenario that boggles the mind.
Like the time someone started to build there own international airport in Belize (Near Placencia) without asking anyone permission.
Well, that is the situation with the occupants of the small island of ‘Coffee Caye’ which is approximately 7.5 miles north-north-east of Belize City.
The occupants and others have been featured on CNN in a segment in which several persons that are involved with the crowd funded purchase of the island said that they are establishing a new country, to be known as ‘The Principality of Islandia’, with its own flag and national anthem. and , they have even placed it on Wikipedia as a real place, with a prime minister.
Yes, you read that right. Some people are floating the very-real-but-bizarre idea that they are establishing their own country within the borders of Belize.
This afternoon after the House Of Representatives met in Belmopan, (Tuesday March 15th. 2022) the Prime Minister was asked about the statements made by those who purchased the island and said that they were creating a new country called ‘Principality of Islandia’
Іn a blunt and uncharacteristic tone, the Prime Minister said “thе іdеа was “ѕtuріd” аnd іtѕ сrеаtоrѕ were рuѕhіng “mіѕlеаdіng аdvеrtіѕіng.”
The author of this report believes that those people are simply smoking some good Belizean Weed, and we should put a Belizean Flag on the island and encourage its occupants to enjoy our beautiful country.
There are no laws prohibiting people from trying to do weird things, or believing fantasy, But ! in today’s strange world, we may have to make sure the bizarre doesn’t turn into strange legal trickery.
