Phillips versus the Wikileaks claims

August 1st, 2011

According to a WikiLeaks cable released on July 8, 2008, Dr Phillips discussed with certain US Embassy officials that Jamaica was in danger of becoming a replica of Haiti if Portia Simpson-Miller returned to power.

Additionally, the cable quoted Dr Phillips as telling US Embassy officials that it was an amazing possibility that the People’s National Party (PNP), after running the country into the ground for the last eighteen years, could probably return to power.

Although Dr Peter Phillips has strongly rejected allegations that he made any remarks of this nature, certain individuals have been using this cable as a working example to highlight why the  PNP should not be returned to power.

What are your thoughts? Do you believe this cable or not? It’s time again to have your say…

    I believe the cable. We have been asked to believe them until they reveal Phillips. What is more the report was made by Phillips friends not his naysayers or enemies). I really believe that He said exactly what they said he said.

    Yep i believe he said everything the cables said. They were gospel before when everyone,s name were called. i believe he had the motive, opportunity and he has done and said a lot of bad things to the US which violates this country protocols and laws. I believe he is a selfish desperate man who would do anything to lead the PNP and by extension Jamaica. I also believe he had cafefully and systematically carved out all the events that had unfolded and not in the interest of jamaica, his party or any other entity but him self. Peter Phillips. I am in awe as to why most of you stay blinkered to this man,s doing however God will break his actions asunder.

    The release of WikiLeaks cable is a serious allegation against Dr. Phillips.

    What I don’t understand is why Dr.Phillips has not sued WikiLeaks for defamation of character. It is not enough to just say WikiLeak cable is an allegation that does not fly.
