This is bad news, this is very bad news !
I do hope the B sample is negative .
A suspected Jamaican sex-offender charged five times but never convicted for allegedly raping vulnerable women has been banned from Britain for a decade in a controversial new police tactic to target foreign criminals.
And Mr Farquharson’s solicitor Howard Cheng said: “It is a concern that the once famed idiom of ‘innocent until proven guilty’ no longer seems to apply, when the Home Office, with the assistance of the Police through Operation Nexus, are able to refuse an applicant’s request for leave to remain in the UK on the basis of unproven criminal allegations.
I would really like to hear from our learn legal luminaries here in Jamaica, who often hold up the UK, as the model for legal cases and rights of suspects. We have some very bright lawyers in Jamaica and I would love to hear their take on the above case, in particular the presumption of innocence.
The more I think about it, the more I believe we need to have our leaders public their medical records.
Some of the decisions made at the top leads one to question the mental health of those making those decisions.
One publication a fews weeks ago showed a very worrying situation, were it noted that a large section of the poplulation has mental health issues.
Would it be a stretch of our imagination if we assume that we could very well have our leaders included in those numbers.
Would it be of value for us to know about the health of our leaders given we could have “mad” people taking us down the path to destruction ?
Does the medical condition of an individual impacts their ability to think and make sound judgment given the complexity of the issues facing Jamaica today.
Its really something worth considering.
Before any of us get a job one of the requirements is a full medical check, why should our politicians be any different ?
The state of the Jamaican society has reached the point where the state has literally lost control of the country.
Cops kill with impunity and laugh at the justice system.
Cops lie on suspects, then when faced with evidence to show up their deceit, they refuse to show up in court and then get promoted
Cops are contracted to take out certain people and end up being “protected” by their uniform.
Government members and other public sector folks do as they please with no sanctions.
Jamaicans on the nations road refuse to follow the rules, rack up tens of tickets and continue to drive like “it never happened”
1/3 of the population steals electricity, while 2/3 pay for the entire amounts.
50% of the population steals from the Government by refusing to pay taxes and the government rather than going after these simply tax the paying 50% more.
Jamaicans steal good metal and sell as scrap and the government turns around and license some of these thieves.
Jamaicans steal batteries meant to provide light on leg of highway 2000, thus leaving sections of the road unlit.
We steal the chain link fence on highway 2000 forcing the operators to use barbed wires, which is less desireable commodity.
Jamaicans reverse unto highway 2000 , putting other road uses at risk, just to steal between $60 -$270 from toll operators , while boasting how “smart” they are at beating the system.
We break into school and steal food and tools meant to provide nutrition for our kids and aids for learning.
Rules are largely ignored and winning at all cost trumps everything while in government.
No one is accountable its virtually free for all and dwag eat dwag.
Jamaica lags most if not all countries in the caribbean in terms of economic development. The country has not seen any significant levels of growth after years of borrowing billions of dollars and decades of failed economic policies, yet Jamaicans seemed contented and have resigned themselves to a life of misery or the hope that one day, they too will get a chance to migrate.
There is hardly an area of this country where one can look at say ” that is good and is something that can lead to a better Jamaica”.
We seem contented with appointments and announcements vs actual results. We in fact applaud anything that sounds good without even asking the tough questions and refuse to demand results of those announcements.
We like mega projects, they sound good and make us feel good, but appear to have no interest in the deliverable as a result of those largely ill conceived projects.
We waste money as if we are a rich country then turn around and borrow money then cheer as we pile on the debt.
Jamaica is truly an ungovernable country.

Talk about “dissing Jamaica”, need I say more just read the article
Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley said yesterday Air Jamaica was bleeding Trinidad and Tobago “like a chop neck”.
“Right now nobody knows what the Minister of Finance is doing by bankrolling CAL. All he is doing is giving them permission to go and borrow money short term. As of now we don’t know how much money they have borrowed and they writing off $200 million and the CAL board is having a generally good time as you see in the behaviour of (vice chairman) Mohan Jaikaran,” Rowley said.
He said the airline was now “absolutely bankrupt”.
