CHAT ’BOUT: Mick Jagger salutes Toots Hibbert … Damion Crawford laments PNP Election loss … PM Andrew Holness on his new plan of action...

“When I first heard ‘Pressure Drop’ that was a big moment. He had such a powerful voice, and on stage he always gave the audience his total energy. A sad loss to the music world.” – Rock icon Mick Jagger (The Rolling Stones) paying tribute to the late great Toots Hibbert

“I will now have to more play the role of coach rather than player to make sure any strategic gaps, any tactical shortcomings are immediately corrected, and that when we take the long view we are actually looking in the right direction.” – Andrew Holness being sworn in as Prime Minister for the third time in Jamaican history

“We’re extremely disappointed with the outcome of the Elections. I must say personally that I didn’t see the level of defeat coming. I was hopeful of a victory. I am somewhat hurt by the outcome but also hopeful of the rebuilding that will take place in the People’s National Party.” – PNP Vice-President Damion Crawford responding to the party’s epic defeat in the 2020 General Elections

“We think the risk factor is far, far greater than if we were to continue online. [We’re watching] what is happening with the rising cases with the pandemic.” – New JTA president Jasford Gabriel on why he objects to schools reopening as scheduled on October 5

“I think the country recognizes that agriculture and fisheries has one of the most critical roles to play in the building back of the Jamaican economy… We want to bring Jamaica back to where it was, when we were leaders in agricultural research and development in the Caribbean. That will be one of the priority areas of focus.” – New Agriculture minister Floyd Green sharing some of his plans
