You are the reason why Jamaica continues to spiral downwards, how dare you delve into Michael Manley's personal life when his record of public service remains, at the very least, unmatched even after so many years?
Didn't Holness AND his wife benefited from free education, why public schools are deemed unworthy for their children?
Why Manley did not get Beverly Manley to run for public office?
I suspect the reason why the PNP backsliders are welcomed with open arms by the JLP is someone has to replace the die-hard JLP members being outed for being corrupt.
He is believing the exaggerated hype from his subordinate lizards,in so much that he thinks he can unjustly attack the legacy of Michael Manley by way of
making baseless assertions as opposed to out doing Manley with policies of his own.How can he claims that Manley is responsible for the current economic woes when Seaga (and the JLP by default),in an act of high treason, colluded with a foreign infamous agency to undermine Jamaica?

Regional leaders hold Manley in high esteem, Holiness is seen as spineless...
Oh yes, Covid19 , well Manley was instrumental in providing free health-care , just one of his many accomplishments.
Again , what have the PM done that would make him worthy to criticise Manley?
Give me 1 accomplishment even remotely close to these..

Tired of this Manley socialist bashing,history has shown the western powers are/were more socialist than Manley. Subsidized health care,housing and education in europe and North America to tax cuts for the rich are birthrights to Europeans,why is it a curse to the African,?

This Singapore comparison is irrelevant without looking at the tax and fines they put on quality of life with stiff anti corruption measures,a chapter you labarites conveniently leave out when referencing singapore/ Lee Kwan!

With the passing of Singapore’s former Prime Minister and elder statesman Lee Kwan Yew last March, there has been a lot of discussion and reflection on his legacy. One aspect of that legacy that has been much celebrated, even among his detractors, has been Singapore’s success in reducing corruption. Indeed, in virtually every international survey or ranking of countries’ corruption levels, Singapore comes out very well. In Transparency International’s 2014 Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) rankings, for example, Singapore scores 84 out of 100, perceived as the 7th-least corrupt country in the world, and the least corrupt in the Asia. In TI’s most recent Bribe Payers Index (BPI), from 2011, which ranks exporting countries according to their firms’ perceived propensity to pay bribes abroad, Singapore scores 8.3/10, ranked 8th out of 28 countries (in a tie with the United Kingdom). And the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) 2012 evaluation of Singapore’s anti-money laundering system gave the country generally high marks (though with some areas of concern). Singapore is widely touted as a major anticorruption success story (see, for instance, the laudatory introduction to this New Yorker piece) and a model for other countries to follow.

He realized that if the nation was to develop as a successful industrial society, its population should have an improved quality of life and the environment should be protected. The overall philosophy was thus that economic development of the city–state could not be sustained and the quality of life of its people could not be significantly improved, unless environmental factors were considered as important as development issues.

In terms of overall investment, Chou (1998) estimates it at S$200 million (US$159.8 million). He also cites some of the specific expenditures such as S$21 million (US$16.7 million) to form beaches in the Kallang Basin and S$13 million (US$10.3 million) including removal of mud and some structures and expenditures incurred by Port of Singapore Authority, HDB and other government agencies. Leitmann (2000) puts the cleaning cost at S$200 million (US$159.8 million), excluding the costs of public housing, food centres, industrial workshops and sewerage. According to Tan (2009), however, the clean-up cost the government nearly S$300 million (US$239.7 million), excluding resettlement compensation. It is not clear whether it included costs incurred directly and indirectly in manpower, time and education programmes targeting general public and schools, etc.

Stop calling Lee Kwans name unless you laborites are willing to deal with corruption and quality of life initiatives to move the nation forward. Waxing about how he saw Manley as Quixotic does not excuse the fact successive JLPNP governments haven't dealt with the aforementioned like Lee Kwan.

Advancing the anti-corruption conversation


Against the foregoing, Holness needs to come clean on what he knew about the matters at the Ministry of Education and Caribbean Maritime University before the information came to full public view. It is not enough that there have been resignations and criminal charges. That it is highly improbable that the prime minister was in the dark until the last minute means he should be required to say what he knew, when he knew it, and what he did about it.

The Petrojam scandal is mind-boggling on several levels, but there is a simple question which my colleague Damien King has asked on Twitter which the prime minister ought to answer: Given what happened under Andrew Wheatley's watch at Petrojam — and we might add National Energy Solutions Limited (NESol), Universal Service Fund (USF), etc — if Jamaica were a company owned by you, Prime Minister, would you give Wheatley a second chance?
