CHAT 'BOUT: Potent quotables featuring Paula Llewellyn, Horace Glaze, Olivia Babsy-Grange, Craigy T and PM Portia Simpson-Miller

"I think he tried his best to bring a level of professionalism to all levels of the force right up to the High Command, and to make the High Command and himself more accessible to all stakeholders." Director of Public Prosecution, Paula Llewellyn, in praise of outgoing Commissioner of Police, Owen Ellington

It's challenging daily for us, not just in terms of being able to deliver the knowledge and education to the people about disaster preparedness but also to prepare for the new and emerging hazards that we tend to experience here in Jamaica, all around the region and globally. We're constantly seeing new types of incidents happening." ODPEM's Deputy Director-General, Horace Glaze, on the agency's increasingly complex responsibilities

"Unless we deal decisively with the issues which give rise to children ending up in state care, the calls for resignations and claims of inappropriate introduction of materials and programmes will be a recurring decimal." The JLP's Olivia Babsy-Grange, writing in a recent op-ed piece for The Daily Gleaner

"Yeah I'm kinda bummed about not being able to finish the season. I love working with new talent. However, it just couldn't be avoided. With my schedule, coupled with T.O.K's calendar, I would miss about 10 of the 12 live performance shows. That wouldn't make sense. All things considered I'm looking forward to seeing you all again next year." Musician and Rising Stars judge Craigy T on making an early exit from the show's new season

"Stimulating growth and employment is at this time the highest priority for both the government and [The International Monetary Fund]. It is [also] the shared commitment of the government and the IMF that vital society safety net programmes will be maintained to protect the most vulnerable, even as we press ahead with economic transformation." PM Portia Simpson-Miller on the requisite collaborative approach for Jamaica's future economic growth
