Bad mind, grudgeful and envious were how Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) deputy general secretary Audley Gordon described Campaign Director for the People’s National Party Dr Peter Phillips for bringing the issue of the mansion of JLP leader Andrew Holness to the political platform.

Gordon said it was unbecoming of Phillips, the Finance Minister, to be so fixated on Holness' house.

“Instead of being so envious why don’t you build one for yourself, Dr Phillips?" Gordon asked.

He said Comrades should follow the example of Holness in being productive and not Phillips who is being "red-eye".
