Replace old losers with young blood

THE EDITOR, Sir: In
view of the embarrassing failures of the Simpson Miller administration,
I suggest that she immediately shuffle her ministrels - sorry,
ministers. The foreign affairs minister needs to go. I am shocked at
Sandrea Falconer's inability as a communicator since her substantive
role before politics was in that field.

Look at the bright, young
talent in the party. I'm thinking of Dr Dayton Campbell. The young
doctor is not only an accomplished doctor, but a lawyer, too.

Campbell
has arranged with his colleagues to conduct free medical checks on
shut-ins in his constituency, set up mobile clinics, establish homework
programmes, and encourage entrepreneurship among those not academically
inclined.

He is an independent thinker. If Portia Simpson Miller
is indeed a lover of youth, why isn't she trying them in the face of the
old losers she now has in place?
