CHAT ’BOUT: PM Andrew Holness talks regionalism; Dr. Peter Phillips pledges tough Opposition leadership; Usain Bolt on his future in football, and more…

“There is no need for the concern; the market will be able to align with the changes. I know that it will take some time for people to get used to it. But removing plastic bags from the waste stream is an important first step, and there is never a wrong time to do the right thing.” – Government senator Matthew Samuda reiterating the importance of the islandwide ban on single-use plastic bags

“The world is taking notice of what is happening in Jamaican women’s football, and this will serve as further encouragement to players at all levels that, despite their circumstances, with the right attitude, approach and support, they can make it on the international stage.” – Sports minister Olivia ‘Babsy’ Grange welcoming news of Reggae Girl Khadijah Shaw receiving The Guardian’s Footballer of the Year award

“There is no doubt that this is a community on the move – a community that is determined to provide opportunities for all its citizens to maximize their potential and so enhance our prospects for sustainable growth and development.” – CARICOM Chairman Andrew Holness on the current state of regionalism

“I have had other offers, but I want to make sure it’s perfect for me. I am not just going to do it because the first one I did was just because I wanted to play. And it didn’t work out. I want to make sure if I am going to do it, it’s beneficial for both me and the club. That’s what I am waiting one, so we will see.” – Usain Bolt on future stints with professional football clubs like Central Coast Mariners

“As Leader of the Opposition, I pledge the continued vigilance and moral courage of the party that I lead to hold the Government accountable, as we advocate for a better Jamaica that offers opportunities for all people and not just a few.” – PNP President Dr. Peter Phillips giving his 2019 New Year’s message
