Holness has failed miserably

THE EDITOR, Sir:

Our nation, at this time in its history, requires firm hands at the helm. We have had our fair share of overrated egotistic individuals who have pushed themselves into leadership roles, but have failed miserably when pressure is brought to bear.

Opposition Leader Andrew Holness has displayed anything but new in his political tactics, and his inability to be a man of his word has been seen repeatedly. Are these the hands in which we should put the future of the country? Is this the sort of underhanded leadership that reeks of the politics of yesteryear that we are expected, as the electorate, to perpetuate; one that would rip the very Constitution to threads just to have his way or to advance his 'new brand' of politics?

Never before has there been such a continuous infighting in any political organisation. Things have now gone to the extreme that there seems to be the engaging of ex-convicts and henchmen to implicate and remove members who fail to fall in line.

Let's be frank; if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it's a duck. This 'anointed one' seems to have been unfortunately anointed with the suicidal tendencies of the anointer.

Please, can someone put him in touch with reality and advise him that the writing is on the wall.

Let's find a proper replacement urgently so the electorate of this country can have a viable alternative. If the 'anointed one' is our only hope, then our future is a blighted one.
