Rarely does political drama play out on an international stage, and it is usually relegated to small, local elections that only the residents of some small town or city would be interested in. Recently Las Vegas and one of it's residents has been thrust into the international spotlight through the internet and social media outlets like Facebook, Twitter and various blogs. Lord Neil B Gibson, the Las Vegas based businessman, developer and international finance figure has rocketed into the fiery discussions that are taking place in the country of Belize, specifically regarding an election for the position of Standard Bearer in the Cayo South Constituency Area. Social media, news outlets and radio have been awash with discussion regarding the election of businessman Ralph Huang to this position, and conspiracy theories abound as to the connection he has to Lord Neil B Gibson. Accusations of corruption have already been made only days after the election from the opposing party, and a large-scale smear campaign has begun to play out on the global stage with regards to Mr. Huang, Mr. Gibson and the future of Belizian governmental positions.
The coverage being presented is amaturish at best in it's attempts to stir up controversy
Interesting spins on the situation are being presented through such media outlets as Channel 5 Belize, 7 News Belize and the associated Youtube Channels of each station. Many local blogs have also taken to the internet in an attempt to drum up the suspects of corruption with regards to the relationships that Lord Neil B Gibson has with both Huang and other Belizian governmental officials. The majority of the coverage centers around the fact that Mr. Huang has admitted that Gibson both contributed to his campaign and also supported his election. The coverage being presented is amaturish at best in it's attempts to stir up controversy, as the press releases, posts and announcements that can be found both on the official business websites of Neil Gibson as well as his business websites and social media have never attempted to make even the slightest hiding of his contributions and support. Gibson went as far as to create professional videos distributed on Youtube endorsing Huang and touching on the reasons he believes Huang was right for the job. Gibson has also shown a long track record of complete transparency with regard to his interest in Belizian development projects, going as far as to publicly promote the ongoing developments attached to each potential project in Belize on his network or websites and press.You can read the full article HERE.
