Hello! Hello! Will Foreign Affairs

answer my calls?

In recent days, we have discovered how government ministers have been wasting taxpayers' money on cell phone calls. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs stands out in my mind. I have tried calling that office on several occasions. Most times the phones ring without answer. The operator answers promptly at times, but the calls are never picked up after being transferred.

Calls are never returned and messages left are never responded to. I therefore must conclude that this ministry cannot be seriously engaged in the business of foreign affairs.

The apparent frivolous and rude nature of the Minister A.J. Nicholson has caused serious concern about the affairs of our citizens overseas, whether they are free or bound. I am calling on the PM to make changes in that ministry. As Jamaicans, we are now demanding value for our money!
