|Polls and personalities
The issue is not whether the People's National Party (PNP) is really ahead in the polls. The issue is why the PNP is not clearly behind in the polls after 18 years of governing, and with the country as badly managed as the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) charges. (Boyne)
Picking political sense from nonsense
Once upon a time, Jamaican election polls were easy to understand - if Carl Stone say so, it go so. From 1976 until 1993 the Stone polls were as accurate as any in the world, never being outside the margin of error. (Chang)

High schools today are not what they were yesterday. Indeed, so too have the standards of Jamaican society. It is as a consequence of this general decline in standards that the role of the school must now be reviewed. (Seaga)
Managing change, continuity and expectations
The People's National Party (PNP) has always said it will call elections when the party tells the leader that it is ready, and when the EOJ announces that things are in place. These conditions have now been just about met (except for the law on open voting). (Buddan)
