Jamaica

It seems a bit weird to be saying “congratulations” to anybody in the aftermath of Beiruit, but I have several real-life Jamaican friends, so this one is high on my radar. I’d like to wish any Jamaican readers a somewhat muted Happy Independence Day.

Jamaica gained independent from the UK on 6 August 1962.

I am not at all a flag-waver, and it seems fundamental to me that we should all be allowed to choose our destiny, so far as possible, and not have it determined for us.
