Time for Peter Phillips to reconsider his leadership

Dear Editor,

Let me begin by giving the disclaimer that I came to this conclusion long before any polls were done or released.

Additionally, I don't have confidence in polls, because if they were accurate Hillary Clinton would have been sitting in the White House today.

I'm a supporter of the People's National Party (PNP) but, quiet as it's kept, I don't see how the party will ever regain power with its current leadership, organisational structure, and current crop of candidates.

Mind you, I respect all...well, most of them, and appreciate their service to the country. However, some of them are anachronisms stunting the true potential of the party.

I admit that I was a quick supporter of Peter Phillips as leader; I was impressed by his message of an inclusive and fair Jamaica. I truly felt that he was ready to bring the party into the 21st century with renewal. Nothing seems to have changed. Nothing!

Now I'm thinking that, whereas Peter may be a very good implementer (a Mr Fix It), he may not have what it takes to run for prime minister. I say this thinking about the opposite side.

In look and feel alone, the Jamaica Labour Party looks more palatable than the PNP.
