Install watchdog over sale of national assets

THE EDITOR, Sir:

China is outperforming the United States at the imperialist game.

Jamaica needs a permanent, non-partisan appropriations committee consisting of members who, like the US Supreme Court, do not reveal their party preferences or affiliations, and are lifetime members who transcend successive administrations.

Why, given the high levels of corruption evident in Jamaica, has there been no such body?

Must the country wait until it is a total slave colony before it reacts? Jamaican taxpayers need to demand that massive rays of sunshine be shone into every deal negotiated deal with every foreign entity.

Can a country call itself a sovereign nation when so many of its vital goods and services are provided by non-Jamaican citizens?
