shadow health minister was booted this time around
dr. campbell supported peter bunting in the leadership race and for dr. phillips
he signaled his intention to reorganize the shadow cabinet long before there was
a leadership runoff know where dr. Campbell was but we also know where
other members of the team were they have been appointed reappointed some have
been left out I am struck that the assumption is made that the leaving out
has to do solely and exclusively with the position that he took in the
campaign it’s not supported by has a logic or evidence a curfew has been
imposed in East Kingston following last week’s flare-up of violence in a section
of Mountain View Avenue the curfew began at six o’clock yesterday evening and

    The national integrity commission how far does their integrity investigate ? I was reading about the scale of corruption in Jamaica and discussing with colleagues this situation publicised on our media forum , reach home and this is the news ! today in Jamaica ! I
    Does their investigation go as far as people that are wrongly incarcerated? Does it view due process being conducted properly ? If so please explain to me,under the human rights act article 6 it states all are entitled to a fair trial , does the well publicised case of Vybz Kartel and the others not breech their human rights ?
    Does evidence that has been tampered with ,mislaid and alleged bribery charges not violate their rights to a fair trial ? Can the integrity commission please explain that if corruption has played a part to engineer events that brought about an unlawful conviction , who investigates these people of the system ? Weather it’s the police in fabrication of events because of motive , and collaboration of people within this corrupt Jamaican system , as we learn is entrenched ,based on documented evidence and facts ,
    So if the Integrity commission has integrity whilst this appeal of these incarcerated men plays out, we are just very curious to know who investigates the corrupt ?

  • I agree with everything this woman said many of these women are having too much children, especially the poorest among them which only keep them in constant poverty, and very little time to bring their children up properly and this is what is helping to increase the crime in the country there need to be a change of attitude of mind among men and women

  • When the hospital fail to assist patients or people with medical issues it should be that the affected families can bring them to court and sue them for negligence

  • Which member of parliament for pnp ever investigated under pnp government name 1 that involved in corruption now this happen under the jlp that means there are still better then pnp

  • I am calling on comrade Dr Peter Phillips that the government took so long to, called for the investigation. The government waited until Ruel Reid and companies, hide the investigation.
    So there is nothing is going to come out of it,so I am going to asked him what he is planning to do.
    The PM Andrew Holness is using every tricks on you,because he waited too long before he turned over the investigation to the police.

  • I am listening to Paula Llewellyn is accusing the poor in St James, about the parents is having too much children. That is why there is the main reason for causing so much crimes, that can be one factor yes. But the main reason for the crimes situation in is so high, because there is no employment for the poor people in general in Jamaica. Because people useto have a lot of children from ever since, and a lot of those children came out very good in life.
    Some people does not remember where they are coming from, and how she useto suffered before she got the break.
    Don't blame the parents for all the problems in Jamaica, if the government closed down all the training centers. I want she Paula Llewellyn is going to tell me, where those people is going to learned trades or skills.
    She is only focusing on the poor parents about how many children they have, and if the government destroyed the people lively hood.What do you believe is going to happened in any country, more crimes, because of poverty.


  • ricardo barrett says:

    How can you provide good, adequate, and suitable working condition for the hospital personnels and they are not performing at a high standard to facilitate the patience when they arrive with whatever illness they posses which result in a deplorable condition to the patience. This is therefore not right. It makes no sense, by way of example is at the Linstead Hospital where patience have to wait a long time to be seen. This must be rectified, time is life due to saving by a doctor or nurse. Employees must take their work serious, not just to work for the gain of money. But to conduct and give quality customer service to those who are in need of it.

  • Djlucky campbell says:

    the only time i heard of so much corruption is when this party is in power! me not saying the other party is good ,but there way better than this party!! this is the longest state of emergency I've ever seen it's all a scam , pure bullshit!! gun man kno exactly weh zozo deh think dem a ediot fi go inna dem!! waste a money!! the thing this government soen money on is pure crap,or to help the rich they never remember ther little people.

  • Just watching the news about the 8 year old who went to the hospital in Jamaica and died in his mothers arms. Shame on you doctors and nurses. I had the experience of visiting a hospital with someone in Jamaica and my God this is worst than terrible. First of all, there is no respect for anyone if you do not have MONEY to bribe these doctors or nurses…what a shame. if you are poor prepare to die. No wonder you doctors and nurses cannot work in Canada. You need to be retrained not because of your qualification but because of your etiquette. Speaking to and treating poor people like they are less than human. Disgusting.



  • Natty P The General says:
