After Six terms of MP Horace Dalley, with no progress or improvements in the lives of the residents of Northern Clarendon, President of the People’s National Party (PNP) Dr. Peter Phillips said a government under his leadership would reward the Clarendon Northern constituency for its loyalty, adding that the rewards would include development of infrastructure such as the currently deplorable road network.
“North Clarendon has remained committed and loyal to the People’s National Party, and I want to say to you as party leader that the People’s National Party that I lead will have a special obligation and commitment to the people of North Clarendon because loyalty…” Dr. Phillips said during the party’s constituency conference last evening, November 10, inside a room at Kellits High School.
The constituency has been represented in Parliament for six terms by Member of Parliament Horace Dalley of the PNP.
Phillips, while endorsing Dalley, essentially threw him under the bus when he said: “There are roads up here that have been promised for years – like Brandon Hill, Arthur Seat… All those roads have been on the programme for years. Time come, and I give the commitment that a PNP administration will deliver to North Clarendon.”
In a damning assessment of Horace Dalley’s performance as member of parliament for Six terms, Phillips decried the situation facing the Farmers of Kellits and surrounding areas with the poor road network.
“When you look at North Clarendon – the farmers, it nuh mek sense yuh have crop and yuh can’t get out the crop. It nuh mek sense yuh order things and the trailer can’t come to where yuh want sell di things,” Dr. Phillips said.
Phillips who just narrowly turned back the challenge of Peter Bunting in September, is in reality condemning the poor performance of the sitting member of parliament and Ally of his. For Six terms, the people of Brandon Hill and Arthur seat, and elsewhere has been hearing the same promise of improvements to their road network and nothing has happened. The same old promises has once again been repackaged and delivered, only this time, by the party Leader himself.
The PNP Member of Parliament Dilley Dalley as he is widely known is going up against the JLP’s Dwight Sibbles in the next general election. The people of Northern Clarendon shouldn’t fall for the same old PNP three card trick, of baite and switch.
