DEAR editor

Speaking my mind: So we have a Government that does not value education, and we have an Opposition leader who is showing his true colours, that you cannot believe anything that comes out of his mouth.

The man stood before God and man and offered an apology for his misdeeds, much to the effect that he made it known he was not responsible for drafting the famous letters. Yet, lo and behold, he is now appealing that which he was not responsible for? Any sanky can sing suh? And people actually think he is better than what we have now? Seriously?

Common sense would dictate that if: a. He was not responsible; b. He offered an apology, then clearly he has no clue. If Andrew Holness is the best Jamaica has to offer to the tragedy called the People's National Party, then Jamaica is truly screwed.

One would think that as the leader of the Opposition, in trying to get the votes of the people in the next elections, that he would be speaking to the people and letting them know what he would be doing differently to put Jamaica back on track.

Weeks ago I asked those who support him what were his plans for the country in terms of adequate health care, the issue of crime, etc. I am yet to receive a sensible answer.

In light of what is happening where the PNP does not value education, and the leader of the Opposition is more concerned about being right, it shows that Jamaica is truly going, gone, and done tun over to the dogs.

At this point, I would take the words of Mr Damion Crawford and say that not only young Jamaicans should pack up and leave, but every Jamaican who can afford to should - Because it is clear that the only thing that matters to the leaders on both sides is power at whatever cost.

While Portia Simpson-Miller is looking for queenship, Andrew is striving for dictatorship, and neither is any good for a country that claims independence but the money nuh value nutten, and it's a country where only the name Jamaica is left to be sold to foreign investors.
