And so, none of us has any basis for examining what is in such a report. So what you having is an attempt at rumour mongering, innuendo, misrepresentation — all trying to bring the PNP into the same frame as the Jamaica Labour Party, and we repudiate it totally,” “There are those in the Jamaica Labour Party and some elements in the media that want to suggest that [there is] some, what I would call moral equivalence between the Jamaica Labour Party and the People's National Party where the issue of corruption is concerned.

jamaicaobserver Monday, July 6, 2020 1:02:00 PM EAT

Peter Phillips argued : “Two ministers have resigned, and they resigned only after public pressure. In the case of [former Education Minister Ruel] Reid it is only one day after the People's National Party kept a news conference and we called for his removal, and then they removed him. Then you mean to say, the prime minister was running a Government and nobody understood the scale of what was happening, and it required public pressure? The same thing happened to (former Energy Minister Andrew) Wheatley, it was after the public brought the pressure. They were persistently defending what was going on in the Parliament; that's not the way to run a government,” External link

Peter Phillips argued : “He indicated that if he did not get back his [US] visa he would resign. There has been no resignation. The PM cannot be silent.

Peter Phillips said ( about Commission ) : “The Electoral Commission has identified a number of technical and legal issues that they are examining, and certainly, we would need as a party to be entirely clear that all the arrangements are in place are legal and constitutional and, in fact, are practical, if we are to agree to do it, and that is being done,” External link

Peter Phillips said : “One cannot hope to understand the roots of crime in Jamaica without understanding the deep social inequality and the sense of marginaliasation which has condemned many citizens to hopelessness.

Then what security does any holder of Government of Jamaica paper have? What expectation could anyone have as to the seriousness of the Jamaican authorities about not building up debt again?

Peter Phillips argued : “It's not a right way to run the affairs of the country… Any outside bar or any fry-fish shop is better run than the affairs of crime control are being run in the island of Jamaica,” External link

Peter Phillips declared : “All of us who lead must lead with a clear sense of the moral standard which must be protected in the country, because you're also protected when there are proper standards of governance. It shouldn't be that one set of people in our communities are making extreme and far-reaching sacrifices while there are others in positions of responsibility who seek personal benefit in the midst of our crisis,” External link

jamaicaobserver Monday, July 20, 2020 1:25:00 PM EAT

Peter Phillips said : “New front lines in the crisis are going to emerge. The one that is imminent now involves the reopening of our schools.. our teachers will be on the front line, our children will be on that front line, and collectively we all have an obligation to ensure that September morning doesn't cause too much trauma or hardship on those who now have to confront the heat of the battle,” External link

jamaicaobserver Monday, July 20, 2020 1:25:00 PM EAT

Peter Phillips said : “Schools need to know now, the principals need to know now and the teachers, what is going to be provided to enable them to continue to offer [education].

jamaica-gleaner Saturday, July 11, 2020 9:38:00 AM EAT

Peter Phillips argued : “We do not believe that there is any basis for their [StJMC] actions. The net effect is to weaken the accountability structures of local government in the StJMC, yet they say that they believe in democracy and transparency,” External link

Peter Phillips charged : “At no time did I say, as the prime minister stated, nor has anyone else, speaking on my behalf, said that the appointment of a new director of public prosecutions should be withheld in order to facilitate a new Administration, or any incoming Government. Any suggestion in that regard is palpably false. That type of fabrication by the prime minister is totally unacceptable,” External link

jamaicaobserver Friday, July 10, 2020 8:59:00 AM EAT

Peter Phillips said : “There is no difference between those who have just joined the JLP and those who have been there before. It seems as if they are all committed to the belief that public funds belong to them. We will not tolerate it, and we will resist it at every stage along the way. But most important, it highlights to us the importance of winning the elections,” External link

jamaica-gleaner Tuesday, July 7, 2020 10:36:00 AM EAT

Peter Phillips told : “We don't claim to be perfect and I will act whenever there is any need to act, but there is no need to act now. And my history — I will put it up against anyone — I don't condone wrongdoing wherever it has emerged. I have paid the price, whether in national security...I have been in six ministries and no one can't call my name about anything, anywhere, anytime because there is nothing to call,” External link

jamaicaobserver Monday, July 6, 2020 1:02:00 PM EAT

Peter Phillips stated : “In relation to Comrade Ian Hayles, the situation is simply that no report has been laid in the Parliament. None! And so, none of us has any basis for examining what is in such a report. So what you having is an attempt at rumour mongering, innuendo, misrepresentation — all trying to bring the PNP into the same frame as the Jamaica Labour Party, and we repudiate it totally,” “There are those in the Jamaica Labour Party and some elements in the media that want to suggest that [there is] some, what I would call moral equivalence between the Jamaica Labour Party and the People's National Party where the issue of corruption is concerned. I want to reject that notion comprehensively and strenuously. We don't claim to be perfect, but we are sincere and have been sincere in our purpose” External link

jamaicaobserver Monday, July 6, 2020 1:02:00 PM EAT

Peter Phillips said : “The country deserves an explanation from the prime minister as to why this strenuous position which he held when he was in Opposition — that people who betray the public trust should not remain in a Cabinet or in the Executive — why has he changed that position? Why no word to the country now? The country deserves better and we need to hear from the prime minister in that matter,” External link

jamaicaobserver Monday, July 6, 2020 1:02:00 PM EAT

Peter Phillips argued : “Two ministers have resigned, and they resigned only after public pressure. In the case of [former Education Minister Ruel] Reid it is only one day after the People's National Party kept a news conference and we called for his removal, and then they removed him. Then you mean to say, the prime minister was running a Government and nobody understood the scale of what was happening, and it required public pressure? The same thing happened to (former Energy Minister Andrew) Wheatley, it was after the public brought the pressure. They were persistently defending what was going on in the Parliament; that's not the way to run a government,” External link

jamaicaobserver Monday, July 6, 2020 1:02:00 PM EAT

Peter Phillips said : “And even now there is a minister in the Parliament who has been named in the bushing scandal, named by the contractor general for the underpriced sale of public assets, most recently involved in seeking to secure benefits within the portfolio [for] which he has responsibility,” External link

jamaicaobserver Monday, July 6, 2020 1:02:00 PM EAT

jamaica-gleaner Monday, July 6, 2020 10:11:00 AM EAT

Peter Phillips said ( about Philip Paulwell ) : “Paulwell did one simple thing, which is to request support for Camperdown High School. He has had nothing to do with it since the monies were provided to the school, and the board has attested to that,” External link

jamaica-gleaner Monday, July 6, 2020 10:11:00 AM EAT

Peter Phillips said : "We don't claim to be perfect, and I will act when there is a need to act, but there is no need to act now. I don't cover up wrongdoings, wherever it is," External link

jamaica-gleaner Monday, July 6, 2020 10:11:00 AM EAT

Peter Phillips added ( about Philip Paulwell ) : "Phillip Paulwell made representation on behalf of Camperdown High School. Monies were transferred from Petrojam to Camperdown High School. Their board has confirmed it. He did nothing wrong in that regards," External link

jamaica-gleaner Monday, July 6, 2020 10:11:00 AM EAT

Peter Phillips said : "In relation to Comrade Ian Hayles, the situation is quite simple. No report has been tabled in the Parliament, and so none of us have basis to examine, so what you have is an attempt to rumourmongering, innuendoes, and misrepresentation at trying to bring the PNP into the same frame as the Jamaica Labour Party, and we repudiate it totally," External link

jamaica-gleaner Monday, July 6, 2020 10:11:00 AM EAT

Peter Phillips said : “Foreign influence over Jamaican criminal gangs is not something new. And if the prime minister thinks it is, that is probably why they have prepared no security plan that the country can line up behind for the whole four years that they have been in office,” External link

jamaicaobserver Tuesday, June 30, 2020 8:37:00 AM EAT

Peter Phillips concluded : “And then you talk about they have had too many crime plans, and you have had none. In every single area of national life that is in crisis — whether it be crime, whether it be the absence of economic growth, whether it is poor governance — the JLP Government has failed and failed miserably, and the people of Jamaica need to understand that we represent the answer,” External link

jamaicaobserver Tuesday, June 30, 2020 8:37:00 AM EAT

Peter Phillips commented : “With the greatest of respect to the prime minister, and to everyone else, the change in portfolio responsibilities cannot be perceived as a sanction. Prime ministers change ministers' portfolio responsibilities all the while. It is not a penalty for anything,” External link

jamaicaobserver Monday, June 29, 2020 1:24:00 PM EAT

Peter Phillips argued : “He indicated that if he did not get back his [US] visa he would resign. There has been no resignation. The PM cannot be silent. Jamaica needs to know if an investigation has been carried out in relation to the scandal. Jamaica needs to know what would be the result of the investigations. Jamaica needs to hear from the prime minister of the country what standards he is going to apply,” External link

jamaicaobserver Monday, June 29, 2020 1:24:00 PM EAT

Peter Phillips said ( about Commission ) : “The Electoral Commission has identified a number of technical and legal issues that they are examining, and certainly, we would need as a party to be entirely clear that all the arrangements are in place are legal and constitutional and, in fact, are practical, if we are to agree to do it, and that is being done,” External link

jamaica-gleaner Monday, June 29, 2020 10:10:00 AM EAT

Peter Phillips said : “Whatever the ultimate decisions that are being taken, we in the party have an obligation to be ready, to be prepared, because our intention is if they call one, the PNP will win. If they call the other, the PNP will win. If they call both together, the PNP will win,” External link

jamaica-gleaner Monday, June 29, 2020 10:10:00 AM EAT

Peter Phillips stated : “Funds were available for support from the international community. It was allowed to lapse under this Administration and all we have in return is state of emergency, state of emergency, and state of emergency,” “We have made the point again and again that the constitution did not design the declaration of states of emergency as a long-term measure. That is not to say it can’t be used. But at every point we have said let’s have discussions on this matter and proceed and, quite frankly, the hand has been spurned,” External link

Peter Phillips said : “We are committed to, not only the process of engagement, but we are committed to having a frank, sincere, courageous commitment to the control of crime and violence and murders in particular, which have become absolutely untenable in the country, and is the source of perhaps the greatest crisis which the country now faces,” External link

jamaica-gleaner Sunday, June 21, 2020 10:22:00 AM EAT

Peter Phillips said : “To get the younger generation to ask the questions, ‘What kind of society do I want to live in?’, ‘What is my relation to my brothers and sisters in the society?’ is the challenge I see as a parent, but without preaching or [being] holier than thou in the relationship,” External link

jamaica-gleaner Sunday, June 21, 2020 10:22:00 AM EAT

Peter Phillips said ( about Association ) : “Many starts have been attempted before, beginning with the January 7, 2019 Vale Royal Talks. Commitments were given by the Government, meeting dates were set, and they were all broken. Urgent follow-up opportunities were missed, and it was not until November 11, 2019, that a meeting was convened under the auspices of the PSOJ [The Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica] and JMEA [Jamaica Manufacturers and Exporters Association],” External link

jamaicaobserver Friday, June 19, 2020 9:58:00 AM EAT

Peter Phillips said : “One cannot hope to understand the roots of crime in Jamaica without understanding the deep social inequality and the sense of marginaliasation which has condemned many citizens to hopelessness. This has in turn provided a fertile environment for criminal organisations to recruit support from these very same people who see no other option for advancement in life,” External link

jamaicaobserver Friday, June 19, 2020 9:58:00 AM EAT

Peter Phillips charged : “It is a pattern which is also evident from the reports received from the Kingston & St Andrew Municipal Council, where the internal audit committee set up under the previous Administration is being dismantled,” “And what is the result in the end? The result in the end is a shameful result, especially in the circumstances of COVID. The result is the misuse and possibly theft of public funds urgently needed by the people of Jamaica who are suffering in the circumstances of the COVID pandemic,” External link

jamaicaobserver Monday, June 15, 2020 11:23:00 AM EAT

Peter Phillips charged : “The two events together tell a story. In St James, the Jamaica Labour Party majority is abusing power to avoid oversight and accountability, which is to be provided by the minority. It is an abuse of power and dishonesty,” External link

Peter Phillips said ( about St Ann ) : “In St Ann, there is also an abuse of power, but it’s of a different form.

Peter Phillips said : “This attack is a clear attack on the country as a whole, and demonstrates that violence is rampant, respect for the law is disappearing, and that there is a willingness to kill that has spread in the criminal community and which needs to be contained,” “It is clear that the crime problem is becoming more and more lethal, deadly, and difficult for the country, and it suggests to me that we need to go beyond the tactics and the strategies of the moment, which really seem to just focus on the hard policing [and] states of emergency,” External link

Peter Phillips said : “In much the same way, I think that it is worthwhile to recognise this outstanding quality in Shahine Robinson. She was a formidable politician. She came to politics more than 30 years after the scene had changed and she gave service her St Ann community needed,” “What struck me most about her was this quality of goodwill that she extended to all.
