ST JAMES, Jamaica – Member of Parliament for Manchester North West, the People’s National Party’s Mikael Phillips on Sunday chastised Prime Minister Andrew Holness for what he said was Holness’ poor handling of the country’s affairs.
Speaking at the St James West Central PNP constituency conference at the Granville Primary and Junior High School, Phillips labelled Holness as the worst prime minister the country has ever seen.
“Andrew Holness has been the worst prime minister that this country has ever seen,” Phillips told the gathering.
Phillips chided the PM for his regular use of social media, while pointing out that the high levels of inflation and other ills, like crime, made him deeply worried about Jamaica.
“I am worried about Jamaica. I am worried because we have a prime minister who loves social media, who loves to just go cut a ribbon, who loves to go break ground; but one who does not care about the people of Jamaica,” Phillips added.
Phillips didn’t just take aim at the prime minister and the Jamaica Labour Party administration, he also called out the failing of his own party, arguing that the PNP has not provided Jamaicans with a viable alternative.
“And when I see how we as PNP a treat the PNP it even hurt me even worse. Because if the Labour Party a mash up Jamaica and the people don't have hope in the People's National Party, then dog nyam Jamaica supper,” said Phillips.
“It is not good enough for us to say the people of Jamaica want the PNP and we not doing nothing for the people of Jamaica to want we,” added Phillips.
