Confirmed: PM Simpson-Miller blasts Holness





At a public forum held in St. Ann on January 30, Prime Minister Portia Simpson-Miller fired back at Opposition Leader Andrew Holness by questioning if he is indeed the Leader of the Opposition or an Enemy of the State.

The Prime Minister was responding to statements made by Mr Holness at a Private Sector Organisation Public Forum where he chided the Government on its leadership and for the economic situation affecting the country, however Mrs Simpson-Miller questioned the Opposition Leader's sincerity and claimed that his negativity when speaking to business leaders who invested in the island, could be a detriment to the country.

Former Reggae Boyz striker Marlon King's jail sentence upheld

Former Reggae Boyz striker Marlon King's jail sentence upheld
Former Jamaican football international striker Marlon King who lodge an appeal to suspend his 18-month jail sentence for dangerous driving has been rejected. King had entered a guilty plea in a crash which left a motorist with a broken arm. According to the BBC, the 34-year-old applied to the Appeal Court to have his sentence overturned so he could spend time with his family in Zambia. Three top Judges ruled that King committed an “usually bad offence”, and upheld his sentence. The incident took place on King’s birthday in April 2013, while he was driving a Porsche Panamera on the A46. According to the British Daily Mail, a 35-year-old male victim was airlifted to hospital after the crash, which was witnessed by an off-duty police officer. King originally entered a not guilty plea to a charge of dangerous driving, which carries a maximum sentence of two-year imprisonment, at a hearing at Nottingham Crown Court in November 2013. The former Watford and Birmingham striker is currently without a club, after being released by League One side Sheffield United last December.
