Dear Editor,

JAMES (Jamaicans for a Modern Energy Sector) again makes an impassioned plea for this administration to liberate the imprisoned Jamaican productive forces languishing in the prisons of unemployment, hopelessness and despair. We have offered up our keys, a liberalised and modernised energy sector but so far this has been spurned.

We again call on this administration to launch our JEEP (Jamaica Energy Expansion Programme) which, in the spirit of "all hands on deck", we have offered as a gift and as our part to play in these trying times. We offer hope where there is despair; we will provide productive jobs where there is only hustling; and we offer a secure future for our beloved homeland where there is only foreboding, mayhem and disintegration. We call on all who love Jamaica - as we do - to support our call, nay, our pleas.

Let it not be said that this administration, stiff-necked and consumed with the grandeur of its own image, listened to no voice other than its own, sought no other counsel but its friends, and deemed worthy no other ideas but from amongst its peers.

Trevor Bogle

Convenor, JAMES
