PNP all about power

Dear Editor,

I start as I have began many other days and years with a general dislike for the People's National Party (PNP), my reasons being many.

The PNP usually makes a dismal government, it puts party over country, and its members act like they own Jamaica. Plus, its waltz with corruption is at a different level.

Make no bones about it, the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) has done some wrong, but if wrongs could be measured and paid for in cash the PNP would be like the Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Lee-Chins of this world.

In recent weeks the chickens have come home to roost. The PNP, with the backing of the public defender, did the unthinkable — it conspired to end the states of public emergency (SOE), which have been an effective deterrent to crime.

Now, who won?

For sure not the country, not citizens, not Montegonians, not the PNP or public defender, but criminals! Common, brutish crooks!

Who are the PNP supporting, and why? As Jamaicans, we need to ask that question until the answer becomes apparent. Selah!

On to Petrojam. As I had predicted, the corruption in Petrojam did not begin in February 2016. So then, why didn't we hear about it while the PNP governed? Are people going to be fair now? I don't think so. Can you blame the JLP for trying to fix the corrupt entity?

More questions:

Why is Phillip Paulwell still in the Parliament?

Who was behind calling a meeting that was unsanctioned?

Now that the SOEs are no more I do hope when the killings restart in St James no one, including the public defender, PNP officials, or citizens ask the Government about it. I hope the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) is not called upon to go and quell any flare-up there either.

I'm being as frank as I can be now, if Jamaicans do not see that the PNP is anti-good government, corrupt, and all about power and being in office I can't help them to see it again.

The PNP is about power, not about Jamaica. St James is their latest victim. Let's see who or where is next! Then let's see how long the people will wait to acknowledge the reality facing them. Offices like the public defender are a waste of the Public purse. How is letting criminals free to roam a benefit to the wider public?

Finally, the JLP will win the next election; that's my prediction, and with a larger seat count. That's just because the majority of reasoning Jamaicans will be fed up of the PNP completely by the next two years. Let's see how my prediction goes.

Joseph Edwards
