Un­con­vinced by pro-Por­tia rhetoric

Jamaica Gleaner - - OPINION & COMMENTARY -

THE ED­I­TOR, Sir: SOME­ONE SENT me An­nie Paul’s col­umn on Por­tia Simp­son Miller (‘Hard woman fe dead’, Gleaner, Septem­ber 21, 2016) to read. It has not changed my mind that she has demon­strated that she is un­able to lead the coun­try out of its sad state.

It is all very well and good to be romantic about grass roots, etc, but un­for­tu­nately, they are the ones that re­ally needed to have a leader who has vi­sion in or­der for them to have been given a fu­ture and real hope – not most of the per­sons that are snark­ily re­ferred to as ‘up­per St An­drew’. They are fine and will make it, what­ever hap­pens.

This is not about class or any­one’s right to re­main and rule, how­ever dis­as­trous. I leave that prin­ci­ple to Mu­gabe!

Why do you think that most Ja­maican vot­ers can­not even bother to go to the polls? They are dis­il­lu­sioned. BEV­ER­LEY WALROND bev.law@me.com
