THE EDITOR, Sir:
Will the People's National Party Government prone to making big unsubstantiated announcements ever end?
What happened to the much-touted rare-earths discovery? And now the idea of a logistics hub, which seems so far-fetched judging from Government's lack of communication?
Previously, we had the Tavistock/ Harmonization project, and the expansion of the Falmouth Pier was promoted as a game-changer for Jamaica.
Under this Government, we don't seem to have the will to endure collective and personal sacrifices. This is indeed economic schizophrenia, to take a term from The Gleaner's editorial of October 13, 2013.
It is on these things that I think Finance Minister Peter Phillips should focus on, since the prime minister is always unavailable, possibly to insulate herself from talking herself out of power. But we will not exit quicksand until we face this reality, no matter how Portia ducks the proverbial bullet.
