We should have stayed with Britain: Shock poll reveals 60% of Jamaicans think they'd be better as a colony | Daily Mail Online


Most Jamaicans believe they would be better off if they were still ruled by Britain, a poll shows.
In a harsh indictment of nearly 50 years of independence, 60 per cent of those surveyed hanker for the days when the country was Britain’s biggest Caribbean colony.
Only 17 per cent said the crime-ridden, poverty-stricken nation would be worse off under British rule.
The depth of feeling is particularly astonishing as generations of Jamaican leaders have portrayed the British as oppressors who subjected the Caribbean to slavery.
The Queen is still Jamaica’s head of state. Under the headline ‘Give Us The Queen!’, the Gleaner – Jamaica’s biggest newspaper – said its poll showed how much people had become ‘disillusioned’ with the violent and corrupt political gangs running the island As painful, and some will claim insulting, as these statistics may be to Jamaican nationalists, they are quite understandable – and even logical,’ the paper said in an editorial. ‘The attitudes are formed by people’s existing realities and their expectations for the future.’

These realities, it added, include living in a country ‘where, for more than a generation, economic growth has averaged below 2 per cent per annum and its homicide rate is among the highest in the world’.

The newspaper also highlighted Jamaica’s ‘creaky’ justice system, ‘patchy’ law and order, ‘indifferent’ education system and the widespread public perception of ‘overwhelming’ corruption.
The survey of more than 1,000 Jamaicans is embarrassing for prime minister Bruce Golding. He wants to mark next year’s 50th anniversary of independence by removing the Queen as head of state and making the island a republic.

Among older Jamaicans, nostalgia for what the Gleaner called the ‘good old days’ under Britain may have been sharpened by the island’s disastrous experiment with socialism in the 1970s. Left-wing prime minister Michael Manley introduced economically disastrous policies while publicly courting Cuba and scaring off tourists.
In recent years, violence by drug gangs has made the island one of the most dangerous places in the world.
About 25,000 Britons live in Jamaica, including 23,275 pensioners. An estimated 1.3million tourists visit the island each year, including about 185,000 Britons.

Hey, you do realize that this article is over 4 years old ?

In your rush to lambast and point out an opinion , you yourself fail to notice thisr read the article !

Anyway, assuming it was 2015, this is a ship, the economy of Jamaica that need to be wreck, there is no love of any country between the two crooked party, they are one of the same !

Bunch of crooks, furthermore , it is obvious for some that they were better under British rule, they, the voters are full of false pride that would never allowed themselves to go back under that control....furthermore why would the British even consider that, they have pilfered everything of value already from the country !


The only solution, not just to Jamaica, but IMO, all the other islands, is to get rid of the current parties and have one party, meaning who ever have the best ideas how to move the country forward, wins......now, regarding checks and balances , we set up a system like in the seventh day Adventist , etc...where the pastor can't control the funds coming in, we introduce projects, laws, etc ...they are voted on and we some how fund them, it can't and won't wonk IMO any other way....at the end of the day we are all Jamaicans, etc...not PNP, JLP, etc.....


Why does little St Kitts or Vincy need 14 diff parties ....where you have like 90% of the ppl black....how much can your ideology be so differ from mine ?


Outside of how to bring in revenue, jobs, good education for the kids, etc.
