Just imagine Birds of a feather does not know the lady,but the ignorant on DNO posting BS.Skerrit is starting to burst the idiots blood vessels.Everything Skerrit touch is gold,accept it or get out of the country Skerrit built after Maria.Lazy UWP crooks and traitors.
I’m glad to see this, she’s an ideal choice!
UWP and it’s idiotic supporters,the media whore on q95 and the semi- lunatic,dictionary eating Jacka from St.Joseph will campaign against Dr.Doumbia-Henry in favour of a foreigner.Just as they did Irwin Laroque,Patricia Scotland and Dr.Carissa Etienne.
Based on what our eyes have seen, our ears have heard and what we have had to deal with in the last 20 yrs of Roosevelt Skerrit, we should not expect anything good from Skerrit. I don’t know this lady but to me if the Roosevelt Skerrit administration elects anyone to do anything we know what to expect and what kind of person she is. Luke 1 Cor 15:33 warns us 33 Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.” . Skerrit represents Corruption if a bird flocks with him they have the same damn feather, no matter where they from.
All I know is that these people sing for their super. Children of a thief.
Are you saying that this distinguished lady sings for her supper? Are you for real? Did you read the article? Google her name and that of Dr. Valda Henry.
Exactly right. He would not put a cuckoo in his own nest, he not that stupid.
Ughhh….You admit not knowing jack about the lady yet you are here questioning her integrity and her character. How do you do that? If you know nothing about her, you can also say nothing; remain silent. Why do you use your inferences to sully her name even though you know nothing about her? Would it be okay for someone to do the same to you? No, it would not be. Smfh!
Boss, freedom of speech has its limits. This comment goes beyond these limits.
And look how you made a fool of yourself by saying that I don’t know de lady. Freedom of speech is yours only. You must be a one eye peeping Doug.
Stop peeping, you disgusting creature…
