Have no fear, Peter’s here!

Dear Editor,

In the recent budget debate Dr Peter Phillips seems to have found himself and is now on his way forward to being the vibrant political and social mind he was supposed to have been.

Had he been stunted all these years by retrograde socio-economic and political thought processes that engulfed the People’s National Party since the 90s and onward, after the end of the Michael Manley era?

Prime Minister Andrew Michael Holness would be wise to give him a listening ear and adopt some of his advice and build on it.

Have no fear, Peter’s best bet is becoming an apolitical statesman in the People’s National Party to revive a progressive Jamaican institution, and perhaps make Jamaica great and prosperous again for all Jamaicans here and in the Diaspora.
