Exit stage left... Encore
"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players. They have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts."
We all at some point must make our final curtain call, some sooner than others. Christopher Tufton seems to have lost the fire in the belly, emotional stamina and vigour, passion, or inner drive to achieve, to take action. Happily none of us are indispensable or irreplaceable, so in time someone else who is as "bright" or even brighter will emerge.
But thankfully the leadership challenge to Opposition Leader Andrew Holness has not only re-energised the Jamaica Labour Party, but Holness himself. He seems more argumentative and far more audacious and is starting to push the right buttons. No more hugs and kisses from the PM will soothe his desire to replace her.
Former Prime Minister Bruce Golding after making his final curtain call has returned to the stage of public opinion. He has said, "Objective analysis trumps sensationalism and our populist tendencies," concerning the current commercial bank charges talks. He has not lost the fire, the urge to achieve. Jamaica needs leadership. Sound leadership.
