Should Jamaica accept failure and be ruled by the British?

We all want to be independent but sometimes we are not ready to be independent on our own. Jamaica was a part of the British colony until 1962 when it decided to become independent. Leaving from under the British rule was one of the major blunders that Jamaica made. Providing that Britain is one of the most important and wealthiest countries in the world, Jamaica could have been striving. If Jamaica was still a part of the British colony, we would receive an abundance of support, we would not be classified as a third world country and it would not seem so embarrassing when we ask for assistance from our motherland. If Jamaica had remained as a British colony we would receive an abundance

Jamaica is not a fully developed country as yet and so one of our major problems is the high rate of unemployment.

According to a Letter to the Editor from The Gleanor, Olive Nelson stated that “the extent to which some of us are willing to go to prove to the world that we were not yet quite ready for independence from the ‘motherland’ is not instructive, but enormously embarrassing”.
