    Why go through this charade when we all know it is the MP for Roseau, Melissa Poponne Skerrit who decides what happens in town, is she that runs things there. Honestly, we should not fool ourselves with pretence like this.

    In 2009 LIAR Chi-Chi Bang Bang told his unsuspecting supporters in Lagon that Roseau would be the envy of all Caribbean capitals.He unveiled the artist impression of the new Roseau, and unsuspecting labourites clapped untill the palms of their hands got laceration which needed medical attention. See the state of Roseau today…! Smelling Pee Sar, lots of Kar Kar Chien, broken sidewalks, stagnant water, bad odor from drains, big rats, etc, etc,etc..
    Chi-Chi Bang Bang is an embarrassment!!
    Chi-Chi Bang Bang asking for more money, because his job is stressful.

      MEME get a life. You don’t even seem to understand what is happening – Roseau City Council election. There are local government elections. U need to understand to be able to address truthfully. Did you read your comments? Go back and read. You sound like a hater who wants nothing good for your City.
      Why don’t you get involved to do something about the peepee, Kar Kar Chien, Broken Sidewalks etc. Are you here in DA? If not come down so you can volunteer your seemingly educational knowledge to give advice and even show how you can get these things done.
      I suspect you wasting your talent parlaying. You need to show some actions now. Take the bull by the horn. Do not grow into a self-hurting political individual, who sees absolutely everything negative. You hurting you. Just volunteer so you can have an idea how councils work. Maybe there needs to be a course to show the roles of the Village and City councils.
      Stop mixing everything as politics.

      Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 2 Thumb down 9

        You are so right there needs to be education on the role of councils. But don’t be blind – the persons contesting council elections are deeply political themselves.

        @Hello MEME
        Has the truth embarrassed you?
        Roseau is indeed a delapidated capital, and shameless and wicked people like you should acknowledge this.
        You have written a lot of filth, and it is not going to improve Roseau’s condition.
        Get out of here…Your moron!!
