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.
