JLP youth arm should have several seats

Dear Editor,

For the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) youth arm to slam the People's National Party's (PNP) shadow cabinet and label it “uninspireable” is laughable, at best, and shows that the members of the youth arm of the JLP are suffering from self-serving arrogance and ignorance.

In a country where the population stands under three million, 1,270-odd murders have occurred since the start of 2017 under a JLP-led Government which promised the people of Jamaica peace and safety. The poster child for 'uninspireable' would have to be none other than Andrew Holness.

Last time I checked the PNP was in Opposition, so rather than talk about the PNP, the youth arm of the JLP needs to first hold their leader, Andrew Holness, accountable.

Parading and profiling as prime minister is 'uninspireable'.

Placing someone who is incapable of reaping success in the Ministry of National Security is uninspireable.

Not holding Audley Shaw accountable for running up a $8-plus million phone bill is uninspireable.

For members of the youth arm of the JLP to be focusing on the PNP when so much is going wrong under the JLP, speaks volumes to the level of ignorance within the JLP. That, in and of itself, is not only 'uninspiring', but cause for great concern. Take several seats, Generation 2000.
