Opposition Leader Portia Simpson Miller has threatened to stay away from official Government functions.
The threat follows what Simpson Miller said was the instruction of a state minister to cancel a function of the National Youth Council, purely because she was slated to be the guest speaker.
Last night, the state minister for youth Senator Warren Newby was unavailable for response to the claims by the Opposition Leader.

Meanwhile, Simpson Miller has made laughter of the prime minister’s decision not to announce the date of the election at the JLP’s annual conference last week Sunday, after heightening the anxiety of Labourites.
She said, even more laughable was the Prime Minister’s subsequent utterance that his decision not to call the election was made after consultation with JLP executive Desmond McKenzie.
According to Simpson Miller, election dates are the prerogatives of prime ministers.
