  • Goat dread 🐐🐐tek wey yu self basuda pnp not seeing power fi now jamaican people wise up now pnp just power hungry no more stagnant government fi Jamaica

  • Maureen Hunter says:

    A weh peter a talk seh, Lord have mercy pon im it looks like im was blind for the last how many years they were in power and he was apart of their corrupted party, poverty and hunger on poor people that they did not even recognize, because they knows that the same likkle Hungary belly people dem nuh care once they are there in power, no police vehicles for the officers to do there jobs, ambulances in Bush rotting like grave yards full of graves, the roads in terrible conditions people standing over pot holes begging money to fill up the pot holes with marl so that vehicles could navigate the streets, shame on the pnp then and shame on them now for trying to stop progress that is helping the Jamaican people to have a job whether through construction or what ever it is, but it is much better now than their years in power so go and sit down Phillips and Phillips, Damion, Paulwell and all the others who does not love to see what progress looks like. Trying to distract the people.

  • None of you politicians is no good for the people of ja. Everytime we change the same thing happened.did you all know that God put you there to serve the people and not to oppress the people. God put up king and He take them down…when the people asked for raise of wages ,you all say dont have the money but yet you the politicians stealing not hundreds of dollars but millions.and you know that you all get better wages and benefits than the lower class.shame on you all. Shalom.

  • Peter need to go on sit down after the 7th of sept we kind a tired a your voice now all your years an we nu see your progress.

  • Tell the peoples curruptions party to punished all those currupted MP that they still have in their party , fuking hypocrites .

  • Peter desperately trying to convince the people he has clean hands. No scandal going on as far as most is concern. It’s a change, more transparency, which is why there are high profile politicians in the public scorn and under legal scrutiny for wrong doing. Few years ago this wasn’t taking place in Jamaica and all Jamaicans grew up knowing how politicians flourish themselves and their dons by use of the people’s money.

  • Winston Johnson says:

    Jamaican people you all need to think corruption will destroy the country it doesn't matter who did it, whether it is JLP or PNP the money they are stealing belong to the country, and the people of Jamaica, and the problem must address, so you all need to talk like you have Sense and stop taking side, because is your money. People need roads,
    people need clean drinking water in their communities, some people need a raise of pay, children need a better education it's take money to do all these things. So you have to think about your country. Politician only tell lies, and made promise, and you guys argue over them none of them is better, but the JLP hands are heavier in corruption they stealing your money and you still fighting over them. Remember the money they are stealing belongs to the country and the people of Jamaica

  • Rosemier Wilson says:

  • Possibly the most cost effective way to protect property if you cannot afford to insure is to set up smoke detectors in every room on the ceiling , fire extinguishers and sprinkler system has got to be cheaper than rebuilding and furnishing the whole building.
