Who is better at leading Jamaica?

THE EDITOR, Sir:

According to an index from the website 247wallst.com/special-report/2014/10/17/12-countries-that-hate-their-government-most/, which shows countries that are currently dissatisfied with their government, Jamaica is 10th in the world.

However, I do not believe Jamaicans hate the current Government, based on the voting trend over the last 25 years. I believe they simply have become tired of the many unfulfilled promises and socio-economic unbalance.

Trinidadians, based on the website unsdsn.org/resources/publications/world-happiness-report-2013/, are the happiest people in the Caribbean and the second in wealth. Congratulations to our neighbour. Looking back at Jamaica, one may ask whether we are in reverse gear, or in park.

Logic, I do believe, is the way to see the light. Our kids are counting on us! Let's not fail our own children, as our parents' electoral trend has failed us. I do believe both political parties in Jamaica are wanting in management and patriotism.

A quick Google search will immediately show us data indicating which political party keeps the Jamaican currency stabilised. We must ask ourselves, who is the better among the two major political parties to lead us out of the abyss and regain our strong status and presence in the Caribbean and global community?
