Susan Goffe goes to one of the many areas where public officials do anything but the job they are supposed to. The adage is that a fish rots from its head and Jamaican elected officials are as good an example of that as one would wish.

Add to the poor attendance the tardiness that is customary in Parliament and one gets a real mess of portage.

Going beyond the elected officials, we know that those appointed to serve the public also gave poor performance records. To the extent that such appointments are part of a ‘spoils’ system, society gets jipped again and again.

But, do Jamaicans care much?
