The JLP is about to implode, nasty email trail !

The JLP has set about on a very destructive path that seems set to destroy the party from within and virtually eliminate the party’s chances of seeing an electoral victory for some time to come.

The party seems unable to get its act together and it is very clear that there are serious internal matters that the party appears unable to resolve.

The most recent actions by the party leader, Andrew Holness to take the matter of the senate undated letter of resignation to the constitutional courts has caught both the members of the public as well as party officials by surprise.  News has emerged that some senior party officials only became aware of the filing of the appeal, when it was reported by the media, which a clear sign of the dysfunctional nature of the opposition JLP.

Andrew Holness does not appear to trust members of his own party and some party officials  do not appear to trust Holness either and have been expressing that view given this latest surprise move he has chosen to taken.

Now Babsy Grange in trying to keep a lid on the situation sends a email to party members asking them to refrain from speaking to the media,  yet that very email advising them keep quiet was leaked to the very media she was advising them about, now how ironic is that.

Andrew Holness clearly does not have the moral authority to lead the party and the JLP needs to seriously consider a total remake and reshaping of the party as they are not in a position to be even considered a good opposition vs being ready to take over leadership of the country.

What a mess once again in the JLP , as like dogs, they have sh#t in the public and left it for the entire nation to see.

See email trail below

Grange : “You are asked to refrain from making comments to the press as this matter is a legal issue and the attorneys will provide any clarification needed.”

Montague :: “At no time during the last Standing Committee meeting this was discussed,” he said. “I chaired the meeting. It is dishonest so to suggest.”

“We as officers must be careful how we place persons in an uncomfortable position. I have been receiving many calls from the press, Standing Committee and Central Executive members. I cannot allow this misrepresentation of the facts to stand.”

“Kindly take the needed steps to have the matter correctly communicated to all (whom) you have mislead.”

He said that while he agreed with Grange on the matter of public silence

“I cannot allow you to mislead the officers and members of the party … this correction must be done immediately.”

Montague also chastised Grange for breaching party protocol.

“Furthermore, you did not discuss with me this release,” he said. “Please do not in future do this … ; if you had done what is established and right, we would not be here. Please have this matter corrected. Thank you.”

In her email dispatched to spokespersons yesterday, Grange said:

“See release below, for your information. Please note that Standing Committee was briefed on this matter on Monday, February 23, 2015.”

However, Dr Horace Chang, the party’s general secretary, was quick to refute Grange’s claim in a follow-up email.

Dr Horace Chang :”Correct guidance but the matter was not discussed,” he stated in a terse response.

It was at this point that Grange backtracked, admitting that she was not present at the Standing Committee meeting.

Grange “Unfortunately, I was unavoidably absent from [the] Standing Committee on Monday, but I was advised that Standing Committee was briefed.”Thank you for the correction. I am, however, still asking that persons refrain from commenting on the matter in the media at this time,”
