Jamaica’s Opposition Leader Portia Simpson Miller’s latest tirade proves yet again that she is temperamentally unfit to lead the People’s National Party or the country.
Simpson Miller posted a statement on Facebook, saying, “I regret any discomfort my comments have caused.” In essence, she isn’t walking back her comments, she issuing a non-apology for her comments at a meeting in St. Ann south east. She seemed to threaten three dissenters saying, “this is one woman who never run from a fight with anyone yet.”
Simpson Miller is heard on audio saying, “I represent one of the strongest constituencies in Jamaica; don’t play with me, I don’t play games. I work hard for this movement from 1974 ‘til now, nuh boy, nuh gyal can’t talk to me… I will come back here for another meeting and I know who I will bring.” She seemed to be referencing her St. Andrew south western constituency.
Here’s the full rant:

Simpson Miller’s remarks were prompted after some members of the PNP dissented over the candidates being nominated to represent the party in the upcoming local government elections.
