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.
