      @Gamer Relm 1.0 over 1 year in the pandemic and they haven’t invest in a rapid testing machine to ramp up testing, the still depending on Trinidad for testing. All they doing is killing the economy with restrictions, and forcing people to go out in crowds to get necessities, which will lead to a spike in Covid. One year of curfews and they fail to see that it’s not working, and they need to shift the focus to ramp up testing. How can u separate and contain the infection if you can’t get test results the same day?

      @Gamer Relm 1.0 fam look at the reality, the people need safety measures to put in place to go about their business not stay at home restrictions. Most Jamaican are hustlers so they have to go out and hustle to feed their family so stay at home is not an option so ramp up testing and quarantine and treat the ones infected so that others can go about their business safely is the answer. Antigen rapid test is the solution.

    Lets assume we live in a era where talk is expensive.

  6. All they talking about is money money 💰 and when they get it what they do with it put in them pocket.

  7. Only the people who pay bills and buy food can see!!

    Listen some of these politicians dont have a clue what is happening because they buy their food in bulk and not knowing the actual cost for the things at a regular shop kmt am tired

  10. Consumer Affairs numbers don’t represented the actual reality people are feeling and seeing when they go shopping. That needs to be redone.

  11. Lol ……i hear ( cliff confuse ) (from Nation Wide Radio ) making the same rediculos distinction on Julians presentation . We all know that What Julian is saying it true …….The price of everything has increase significantly and that is a fact. This youth Nigel has no shame at all for denying the truth …..i guess it ain’t no use giving a toddler a man’s job and expecting any better utterances from him . The audacity of Nigel say that there will be no new taxes in his budget presentation when the prices of everything has already been increase …….look at the US dollar or better Gasoline . It look as if Symbols and titles has gotten yo some of these youths head and has rendered them blind as a bat .

    Why is your Prime Minister lying about taking the vaccine. He did not take the vaccine. That nurse was not giving a vaccine. As a nurse in Canada 🇨🇦 that not how you administer a vaccine. You Prime Minister is lying to the people who he is serving

    Electricity is too high, 12 us cents in Texas 18, in London but 30 in Kingston.
    A solution is needed because we importing the oil to produce energy and that inturn pressuring our currency. By solving the energy crisis we would strengthen back the Jamaican Dollar and give our selves a better purchasing power. So if the opposition finance minister is saying things could be better, then let us hear a proposal solution.
