Holness lacks credibility on disclosures

It is fundamental that Jamaicans get off their asses and realise that Prime Minister Andrew Holness lacks credibility.

In any other civilised country, Mr Holness would have be taken to task on his failure to honour his promise to publicly declare his assets and liabilities by March 31. For some reason, he seems to be held to a different standard and should not be questioned.

The fact that his $1.5-million tax plan seems to be imploding right before his very eyes speaks volumes about his credibility, and the sad thing is that many are so gullible in thinking that he is the Saviour.

Portia Simpson Miller was tarred and feathered at every corner, yet, amazingly, the rules are no longer the same since Prince Andrew's accession to the throne in March, and all the voices of contempt and condemnation for Portia Simpson Miller are now noticeably silent. Even the media have taken a vow of silence.

The hypocrisy of Jamaicans speaks volumes, and much like watching a bad movie play out and wonder why you even bought the ticket in the first place, so are many Jamaicans prepared to sit back and enjoy 'The Days of Andrew's Life' through the lens of his camera crew.
