THE EDITOR, Sir:
When Karl Samuda evicted Councillor Susan Senior from his office on Red Hills Road, did he think about the image it would portray of the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP), or of Andrew Holness, for that matter?
And when Mr Everald Warmington stood on that campaign platform and asserted that any councillor of his who declared support for Mr Shaw would not run in the next election, did he think about the JLP's image or that of Mr Holness? For both, clearly not. So why are they supporting Mr Holness and why do they continue to say they support him in the interest of the JLP?
Neither Mr Samuda, nor Mr Warmington represents the transformational politics Mr Holness says he brings to the table. Yet, he is unable to oppose their behaviour in public. It is obvious that he is not in charge.
I am yet to see Mr Shaw or anyone on his team take vendettas on the people who support Mr Holness, and I am sure the MPs, as well as the caretakers who support Mr Shaw, have councillors who do not support him. This just shows the leadership and strength of the JLP's true leader as well as who is truly capable of uniting the JLP when all this is over.
After November 10, if Mr Holness is declared the winner, he will just sit nicely in the Office of the Leader of the Opposition, while his 'supporters' rid the party of those who dared to oppose him. I believe that Mr Holness is incapable of uniting the JLP and returning him as leader will be bad for the party.
