JLP’s Allen made an ass of her­self

Jamaica Gleaner - - OPINION & COMMENTARY -

THE EDITOR, Sir: AS I watched the lo­cal govern­ment de­bate on Wed­nes­day night, the com­ment by Ken­isha Allen, the Ja­maica Labour Party can­di­date, that if you were ever bit­ten by a mos­quito, you should not vote for the Peo­ple’s Na­tional Party, spoke vol­umes to the ig­no­rance and il­lit­er­acy of many of these young peo­ple who claim they want to rep­re­sent Ja­maica and Ja­maicans in pol­i­tics.

I was never aware that the mos­qui­toes in Ja­maica were also po­lit­i­cally in­clined. What Ms Allen did was to make an ass of her­self in very much the same way An­drew Hol­ness did when he politi­cised crime.

Her at­ti­tude said it all. Class can­not be bought, be­cause, God knows, she se­ri­ously needs some. If Ms Allen’s per­for­mance is what win­ning a de­bate is about, clearly many Ja­maicans need to sit an IQ test and pass it be­fore they are al­lowed to vote.
