A Corrupt Labour Party

Golding's fight against the extradition strained relations with the US, which questioned Jamaica's reliability as an ally in the fight against drugs. Locally, critics have asked for Golding's resignation, although his Jamaica Labour Party continues to back him.

Coke allegedly leads one of Jamaica's gangs, which control politicised slums known as "garrisons". Political parties created the gangs in the 1970s to mobilise votes. Coke's gang is tied to Labour.

Gee, who would have thought it. Another corrupt Labour Party. What is the world coming to?
