It is critical, he said,that the Government discontinues the practice of with-holding vital economic information from the public and that the economic affairs of the country are not left unattended. The PNP has been playing the "trust" card for some time now since the Manatt inquiry.
Meanwhile the rapid developments in the Jamaica Labour Party cannot go unnoticed as everyone has something to say on it as to the actual resignation date of Bruce Orrette Golding as soon as a new leader can be identified and so he has been so identified and supported in the form of the education Minister Andrew Holness and in a set of swift political moves and show of solidarity speculations have been put to rest as to the other aspirants for the position challenging him, the PM of course has been severely tainted since the whole Manatt Dudus affair with his image taking a battering and persons raising hell on social networks and elsewhere but the opposition in the meantime thought their just ended bus tour and in effect campaign launch would have staggered the JLP further as their ratings soared, well it hasn't in fact the opposite now seems true as statistically the JLP has gained on the near 32 point lead the PNP had with more and more persons liking the Holness factor despite the release of a Progressive Agenda document by the PNP to include a job creation programme, the JLP has poured cold water on it calling it another "crash program" from the seventies.
In a short television poll on CVM TV's Live @ 7 program many persons when asked if the election should be called early disagreed and suggested Andrew Holness show some of what he is made of while putting his team together but there are those however leaning to the PNP who are putting all kinds of spins they can find to smoke up the room. All of the rapidly coming announcements and endorsements of Mr Holness have certainly knocked the wind out of the PNP's JEEP - Jamaica Emergency Employment Programme to which they have yet to properly present how it will work and what actually is it. They refused a recent debate on the matter
Senator and former Minster of Justice Dorothy Lightbourne (seen above) said in a recent television interview when asked how she felt about the PM summed it that the whole Manatt affair was taken out of context and that he was a good leader and the JLP had achieved much in the short space of time. My question is apart from the line in the sand is how are they going to market their achievements and there are many if one were to be honest but in the face of a tainted Prime Minister (who is on his way out). Noted Professor David Rowe also hinted to the PM's possible Obstruction of Justice in the extradition matter on social networking site Facebook on October 3, 2011
