Don't throw out baby with bath water

The Editor, Sir:

I do believe that Bruce Golding disrespected us all. He is the one who calls himself our 'chief servant'. However, I think that there are many things that the Government can achieve under the leadership of Mr Golding. But he must, with utter humility, acknowledge and apologise to the Jamaican people for the disrespect shown to them.

Looking at the bigger picture, re crime, he must resolve the issue of the extradition of Christopher Coke. The situation demands it! The Jamaican people, if they are to regain their trust in him, must see demonstrated the rupture of the link between politics and politicians so this debacle can lead to a positive outcome.

Not to be forgotten is the necessity for educating our children, maintaining an acceptable standard of health care, and opening up opportunities for working people, especially by growing the food we eat. This can only be achieved if the JLP is allowed to continue its initiative of putting Jamaica on a firm financial footing.

We need to step back and think carefully so that we do not throw out the baby with the bath water.
