Phillips can't inspire, Bunting might 'tek di wuk'

Dear Editor,

It is sad to say that this is the first time in Jamaica's political history that there have been two Opposition leaders within the Jamaican political sphere.

What we have here are the officially appointed president of the People's National Party (PNP), Dr Peter Phillips, and Mr Divine Intervention himself, Peter Bunting.

Peter Phillips has been the least inspiring leader so far within the PNP. He is not as charismatic as past leaders of the party. Plus, there is still active division within the party, which is allegedly led by none other than Bunting.

At this time, Phillips can't raise the finance that is required to fund the party. He can't convince those sitting on the sidelines and are apprehensive about his leadership to rise up and support him. Therefore, he is an impotent leader who can't get the people excited.

It appears, then, that he is allowing Bunting to “tek di wuk” from him right under his nose and charm away party supporters in order to position himself for a possible future leadership challenge.

We all have heard that Bunting is allegedly the “official” money man of the PNP, so he might well be able to sweep all the PNP supporters off their feet right into bed with him.

At this time, the party supporters are calling on Phillips to assert himself and stop letting Bunting steal the spotlight and force him into the background.

Phillips needs to pull up him socks, lick his belly bang, bang, bang, push out his chest like the man of the house and take control of his party.

One has to ask if it is possible for Phillips to wrest back control of the party or will he continue to have Bunting outshine him.
