Yendi lacks moral authority

to gripe

THE EDITOR, Sir:

I must express amusement at the stupidity of Yendi Phillipps' rant on the subject of high charges regarding ministerial phone calls on TVJ's Smile Jamaica programme on which she is a host.

As a brand ambassador for Digicel, she lacks the moral authority to discuss this matter, which should be rightfully targeted at Digicel for its taking advantage of consumers with its extremely high and excessive data roaming charges.

Anyone who travels on business knows that the cost of roaming is not the voice calls, but the data charges we have just to check and respond to email. Ministers are and should be expected to respond to their mail when travelling. As such, Yendi's self-serving outrage is highly misplaced.
