THE EDITOR, Sir:
On December 29, 2011, I proudly voted for the People's National Party in the mistaken belief that Mrs Portia Simpson Miller had gained experience in her short stint as prime minister and also in her longer role as leader of the Opposition.
Despair now envelops me.
I knew that her two-week schedule cited in the debate for successful negotiations with the International Monetary Fund was off-key, but regarded the utterance as a faux pas. Now I realise she had not a clue what it entailed.
She keeps repeating that she is working, working, and not talking, talking, but the country needs to know what its prime minister and Government are working at. Not a year after, but at least concurrent with the work.
The country is at sea in a boat without a rudder, captained by someone who is blissfully unaware of the depth of the surrounding water.
It is now a notorious fact that the prime minister loves the poor, and she seems convicted to a path that will provide her with more people to love. If she loves her country, she should relinquish her position and go on a slow boat to China.
The country cannot prosper if our leaders have no vision. We cannot grow if they don't know what to plant. We cannot know if they don't want to talk.
