Bad luck is reputed to be worse than obeah, but seeing the way that things are working out for the JLP in office I’m not sure recent events can be chalked up to bad luck alone. Some kind of obeah or “science” may provide a more convenient scapegoat for the series of unfortunate events that is befalling members of the Jamaica Labour Party, it is … Continue reading With Friends Like These…
Jamaica is a nation governed by murderers, and long before the vote on Tuesday to retain hanging we knew that the “leaders” of Jamaica were amoral demagogues who will murder so long as it is politically expedient to do so.
