On Sunday January 6, Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller gave an address to the nation. This address has been shot down by several individuals and organizations who believe that it lacked depth, and failed to give the country to a better understanding of the complications with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) deal, among other things.
According to the Opposition leader, Andrew Holness, “There are important things that must be addressed and we didn’t hear a sense of understanding, a plan and a direction, and that was very unfortunate.”
Personally, I agree with him and many others who have stated that the Prime Minister’s address lacked depth. I also believe it was mainly a recount of the government’s supposed “achievements’ in the past year, and a number of very important issues were clearly ignored.
What is your opinion? What do you think of the Prime Minister’s most recent address to the nation? Have your say…
