The PNP saved Jamaicans again

Dear Editor,

The People's National Party (PNP) has once again shown its care and concern for all Jamaican citizens regarding the constitutionality of the proposed national identification system (NIDS).

Whether you are a supporter of the PNP or ruling Jamaica Labour Party (JLP), it is the Opposition that has saved you from this government arrogance.

The Government has gone so far with the advertisements it has had in the media, some showing the person in orange being arrogant and ignorant. Now it turns out that egg is on the Government's face for its arrogance. All that advertising money has painfully gone down the drain.

Over the years this Government has never implemented anything that doesn't cause conflict, even appointing people to posts have become issues as well.

Here are some matters in which we can see that JLP governments have not done things right:

1. A JLP Government appointed the frequently under fire director of public prosecutions.

2. The JLP appointed a police commissioner who departed abruptly.

3. The JLP completed a downtown bus park that is still not being utilised.

4. Instituted the Independent Commission of Investigations and it was not constructed properly.

5. Started a poorly developed Ananda Alert system.

6. Remember the pre-signed Senate letters of resignation.

The trend of the JLP in policy-making is not good. It always seems to do things the wrong way.

If everyone listens to the PNP we will never go wrong, but we let the blind lead us.

When will some sets of Jamaicans learn?

On behalf of all Jamaicans, I thank the PNP for saving our skin, and I am calling on the prime minister, Andrew Holness, and the attorney general, Marlene Malahoo Forte, to resign.

Our rights and the constitution have become too much at risk. “Tek sleep mark death.”
