'Flagging' a dead horse

The EDITOR, Sir:

I am writing this letter in light of what we can now call 'Flag-gate' to just say it is high time we put this episode to rest. If this were the first time a political party did something to cause us to question their thinking, then I could see why folks would be bent out of shape. But clearly it is not. Think Golding and the Dudus saga, Manley and the turmoil of the 1970s.

It seems as if folks from both major political parties have always done questionable, and/or stupid things when they have been in charge.

More important matters

The flag fiasco in Montego Bay is just one more example of politicians and their supporters acting in a manner that makes one ask, 'what could they have been thinking?'

Still, to be dwelling on this matter is beating a dead horse. Jamaica turns 50 this year as a supposedly independent nation but we're worse off economically. We have a Government feeling its way around and an Opposition still trying to get over its defeat at the polls. I think that until we start acting more maturely and get our priorities straight not much will change.
