There are many other islands in the Jamaican archipelago to which indigenous rare species can be relocated in sanctuaries if scientists detect a real threat to species because of the logistics hub development.
I am a swing voter - neither diehard rockstone Labourite, nor Comrade. My relatives split about 50-50 between the tribes, but in this case, I can see this is the biggest opportunity for cash inflow since slavery, including the £20 million paid by the British to 'compensate' the slavers, not a penny of which, of course, made it to the slave huts.

Isn't democracy sweet?
