The issue of the response of Jamaica Labour Party Leader (JLP) Andrew Holness to the controversy over his house is the talking point at party meeting in Stony Hill, West Rural St Andrew.

In obvious reference to a statement dispatched to the media, outlining how Holness acquired his mansion in Beverly Hills, St Andrew, a grinning Karl Samuda, the JLP candidate for North Central St Andrew, said the advantage was now with Holness.

"Dem fire after di man but dem miss." 

Delroy Chuck, the North East St Andrew was also in high spirits.

"Some people should be embarrassed tonight," he said.

The JLP has turned it's attention to West Rural St Andrew, described as one of the marginal seats that it must secure in the February 25 General Election.

 The West Rural St Andrew constituency is to be contested by the JLP's Juliet Cuthbert-Flynn and the People's National Party's Paul Buchanan.
