Andrew Holness

Trials of Andrew Michael Holness, Opposition Leader of the JLP and former Prime Minister of Jamaica W.I. has been facing many trials on the campaign trail (here in Jamaica W. I.). From Guns to Character Assassination.

You would have thought that following the bloody and deadly assassination attempt on his life on Sunday January 7, 2015 and a further terrorist attack on Tuesday January 9, carried by The Associated Press (AP) things would settle down. Alas! This appears not to be so at all. The latest is that Andrew Michael Holness is the target in Dr. Peter Phillip’s cross bows. The PNP has apparently embarked on a smear tactic and character assassination policy/campaign.

Also speaking to thousands in Portmore, a defiant Holness responded to PNP’s Dr. Peter Phillips:

“This man no trouble no one … if you trouble this man it could cause a bam bam … if you live in a glass house don’t throw stones. They (PNP) have no plans … all them tell you stick with them … we have a 10 point plan. For the first time this election is focussed on the issues. They are resorting to personal attack … mi back broad. Them say step up the progress … I went up to JLP Candidate Chris Tufton’s area and the people hug me and ask for help to get water.
The Mother of Poverty must step aside now … she stop using the word “poor” and instead speaking about “prosperity”… now a days” to loud and sustained applause.?
