If it nuh go suh...! - December 9
Prime Minister Andrew Holness

Brazil or France, the ladies say

Did you see the large number of women at CVM's Fan Central? We are enjoying the Qatar football World Cup as much as the men. It's a far cry from when they used to accuse us women of asking inane questions like 'Why are 22 grown men chasing one ball?'. My girls are saying it's going to be a Brazil or France win. Our bet is that whoever loses, the ladies supporting that team will have to colour their hair in the colours of the winning team!

Jamaica is behind you, PM Holness

No one is more security-conscious than us women and when we see our prime minister going to the US to seek co-operation with the Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation, etc, to stop the people sending guns to Jamaica and organising crime from up there, we are very glad. Good move, Mr Holness, the whole country is behind you, except the ones who have a vested interest in crime. We also applaud the Government for renewing the states of public emergency. Take a bow.

Audley Gordon's garbage sound bite

The head of the National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA) Audley Gordon was sounding off, appropriately, I might say, about the correct way to dispose of garbage, earning himself a TVJ sound bite. He was obviously in his ackee after getting 50 new garbage trucks for his Operation Sweep. Nice going, if it means we are going to have a nice and clean Christmas.

Remember the manager who was kicked upstairs?

The manager who campaigned hard for the position and got it, only to unleash a vendetta on staff she did not like, has had to be fired. In one month in the new job she got into so many altercations that not even the HR department could help her. The moral of the story is, never try to put a square peg into a round hole.
