Bar Wheatley from public life
THE EDITOR, Sir:
Dr Andrew Wheatley has resigned, but that should not be the end of it. The investigation should continue, and if it is proven that anyone stole taxpayers' money, they should be sent to prison forthwith.
It's time for Jamaican citizens to stop taking crap from these cynical politicians. Look at what they've done to our country! Only in Jamaica would a man like that still hold a parliamentary portfolio.
In better-run countries, a man like that would immediately be asked to relinquish all of his associations with public life.
It's not just the unethical behaviour Wheatley has overseen that should be given weight; but the very appearance thereof should be sufficient to cost him his entire career in public life.
This is the standard to which Jamaicans should hold their leaders. Time to stop the foolishness, Jamaicans!
Time should be up for most politicians - on both sides.
