Peter Phillips, man on a mission into the wilderness

Former finance Minister and wannabe leader of the PNP Dr Peter Phillips, seems like on a man on a mission that is likely to lead him nowhere but oblivion .

Peter Phillips appears not to have read or does not believe the recently released report which asserted that the reason for the last election loss was mainly to his doing in his focus on Holness house and assets as well as the failure to debate.

Peter has consistently called on the Prime Minister to make his integrity report public and having submitted 10 years worth of information,  Peter is now saying that is not enough, it needs to be examined by a parliamentary sub-committee.

Peter Phillips in one swipe has comprised his own integrity and is calling into question the integrity and competence of those at the Integrity commission, who are the same one who reviews his integrity report.

It would seem to me that Dr Phillips is smoking something he ought not to be smoking, because I cannot understand how a well educated man, could be spend so much time on a issue, which is not a national issue having been rejected by the people of Jamaica, why can’t he get and accept that.

Dr Phillips is ruining whatever little chance he had of becoming PNP President and Prime Minister of Jamaica, by doing exactly what cost the PNP the last election, which shows he is not learning and as such is not fit to ever lead this country.

Its time for Julian Robinson to step forward, because Dr Peter Phillips is spent and has no credibility or any chance of beating Peter Bunting come September.

Dr Peter Phillips may yet redeem himself by publishing 10 years worth of integrity report and call on the opposition leader to do the same.

Jamaicans did get it right on Feb 25, 2016 and we vow to keep the PNP in opposition for the next two terms, to give the country a chance to exhale.

Bless

PNP now a broken and divided party, good sign of Jamaica

The Jamaican people made the right decision when they booted the PNP from office on Feb ! 25, 2016. Since that election  loss the PNP have plummeted from hero to zero in less than 40 days and 40 nights.

The PNP has broken into many little pieces, with each other blaming the other for its election losses. Some have blamed the party leader, the General Secretary, the Finance Minister, the MP’s the austerity which was the new PNP religion to a range of other issues.

Just last Sunday a previously little know faction met at the conference center, where the young comrades came in for a lashing, while the party headed by Portia Simpson Miller was accused of using the Jamaican people like pawns in a much larger chess game.

The Jamaican people wisely recognized that the PNP was not the party that could take us to the next level and dumped them unceremoniously .Clearly this is not the type of party that the country would have needed at this time.

While the party is breaking into little pieces and seems set to implode, their clueless leader, who spent 4 years hiding has suddenly emerged and is now fully accessible to the media.

While the parking is sinking faster than the Titanic, the clueless party leader is on the attack, accusing the JLP of doing nothing but ” continuing the policies of the PNP”, DUH, does Mrs Clueless not understand the term continuity ?

Mrs Clueless is so out of touch, that she has lost all sense of reality, having been shielded for such a long time that time has passed her by and she believes she is back in 2011 and not 2016.

When she should have been talking to the people she choose to remain silent and has now chosen to speak to the people, when no one is interested in hearing her nonsense.

Bye Bye Portia, please step aside move on with dignity, vs being chased out of power and become the Seaga of the PNP.

Portia fortunes are over and the sooner she comes to that realization or people are honest enough to tell her, the longer the PNP will remain on the outside looking in.

That is not such a bad idea , they are much better on the outside looking on because in government they have always been a disaster.

On second thought I think she should remain as party leader for another 10 years, to the the JLP  a real chance of putting Jamaica on a sustainable growth path.

 

 

 

 

 

Portia Simpson Miller plays the gender card again !

“Why am I being asked to step aside, when other  before me have not been asked to do so, is it because I am a woman.”.

  1. No other PNP leader in recent memory has called two elections and lost both.
  2. No other PNP was so ineffective and absent for nearly 4 years.
  3. No other PNP leader, hid from the media for 4 years.
  4. No other PNP leader has acted so naive as this leader.

Every time Portia fails or is called out she pulls one of these cards

  1. Its because I am woman
  2. Its because I am a black woman
  3. Its because I am from humble beginnings

Portia Simpson Miller is 71 years old and its full time she grows UP and end the damn nonsense !

Julian Robinson for PNP President

I think Julian is the most suitable persons to lead the now crippled PNP, which has suffered under the less than desirable leadership (for want of a better word) offered by Portia Simpson Miller.

Traits I like about Julian

  1. Honest
  2. Credible
  3. Media savvy
  4. Social Media savvy
  5. No hint of corruption
  6. Very intelligent.
  7. Down to earth
  8. Leadership skills
  9. Not egotistic
  10. Full of awareness

 

Julian Robinson is the best person to lead the PNP at this stage and even though I am not a PNP fan, I would endorse his selection as party president.

PSM has done her time and need to exit gracefully or risk being thrown out. The party is urgent of renewal

Audley Shaw needs to talk less and work more

Audley Shaw is one man who seems to get excited every time he see a microphone and a camera and appears to feel compelled to “speak his mind”.

Audley however needs to recognize now that he is no longer the opposition spokesman on Finance and neither is he in search of the next big scandal.  The post that he carries is a big one and one that carries high visibility. The words of the Finance Minister extends beyond the shores of Jamaica and so those words must be chosen deliberately and carefully.

Audley cannot afford to speak loosely anymore and neither can he afford to speak out of turn as this to lead to credibility problem from himself and that of the government.

For Audley to be looking for money that has not yet been collected, shows either ignorance on his part or an attempt to misled the country .

Shaw must recognize that going forward he must focus on being diligent as Peter was and get the job done. What he did here has hurt him and he has come across as not being credible at best or ignorant at worst and this could be a disaster for the government if he does not change his moves going forward.

Shaw needs to recognize that the JLP cannot do what the PNP does and get away with it, because the JLP is held to a much higher standard than the PNP.

Andrew Holness could be Jamaica’s greatest ever Prime Minister

I have been a fierce critic of Andrew Holness over the last few years, but I must admit the man has grown by leaps and bounds in the last 12 months.

Andrew Holness a few years back was boring and uninspiring and appeared to be a vindictive individual, but having almost been thrown out of the party he has emerged a much stronger person.

Today Andrew has morphed into a much stronger and vibrant person who ran a truly inspiring and focused election campaign. He never allowed himself to become distracted and stayed on message during entire period.

It was the mass rally in HWT that I really knew Andrew Holness had come of age and was ready to lead Jamaica to the next level.

If Andrew remains focused and rooted in his beliefs and communicate to the people of Jamaica and listen to their voices, there is no stopping him from becoming the greatest Prime Minister since independence.

He cannot do it on his own and their needs to leverage those in both the public, private sector his own cabinet and even the opposition to take the country from a crime filled dirty and corrupt place, to the financial, manufacturing and commercial giant of the Caribbean.

He must however recognize along the journey that not all Jamaicans will want to walk with him as we try to lift this country. There are those in this country who are of the belief that the cannot live in the country unless the PNP is government and will not lend support to any leader trying to build this country as long as they are not from their side. This is the reality of today’s Jamaica, but I do hope that as we mature, we will all come to the realization that if Jamaica wins, we all win and we really need to start winning.

We have been running from this country for years seeking refuge in smaller and yet more developed economies paying much better than we can ever hope to earn in Jamaica and I believe its time to change the game.

We are too rich to be poor and need to begin to move beginning today, March 3, 2016 on that journey

For those who don’t believe they can live under a JLP administration, I say get over it. I don’t see Americans running from America when the Democrat or Republican wins, what I see is that whoever is in power makes Americans believe they are the greatest nation on the earth and act like that.

We may not love the America way, but this is one sure thing I like about them. If sports can unite us, why have politics divide us.

 

 

How did the PNP snatch defeat from the jaws of victory

The PNP is today smarting from last nights election loss and wondering how did they lose when all the pundits(except Jay of course) had them winning.

My top four (4) reasons are

  1. Personal attack on the JLP Leader
  2. Refusal to speak to the Jamaican people via debate
  3. Advertising of JLP $1.5M tax break
  4. Social Media

The strategy employed by the PNP is exactly the same ones which was used by the JLP in 2011 when they lost.

  1. Attack Portia Simpson Miller
  2. Promised nothing but austerity
  3. Constant reminder about the other party.

 

The PNP deserved this loss and social media played a huge roll in getting out all the information to the people. No longer can mainstream media control the flow of information and thus influencing peoples vote.

Some were willing to go as far as say its 18 more years in the wilderness for the JLP, but that was not the case.

I do hope the JLP deliver as I ecpect.
