    Have the DAIC been living in Mars the last 15 plus years? Why in Gods name is this organization enabling the BS of this fool? Skerrit is PM for 15 years and in government for over 20 years. What record of accomplishment he is going to share that we don’t already know? Why is anyone paying to listen to the head of the government who is paid to do the people work and any information from him must be relayed to the public free. Skerrit is an expert in lying and deception. That is about it. The instrument of our democracy to create visionary progress is the parliament through the debate of ideas. The best outcome is developed there. This lunatic skirts the parliament and all we have seen is rum shop mediocrity. DIAC is a joke. Government don’t develop a country as been evidence for the last 20 years. The creative juices and ingenuity of the private sector will. Total waste of time!!!!

      Dominicans, please wake up and get failed incompetent Questionable inmature failed Skerrit out of our government ASAP. As soon as possible.
      This man appears to be a political clown, incompetent, lacks vision and behaves like a fake comedian who has the people of Dominica laugh at him on a daily basis.
      Skerrit is NOT sufficiently politically astute to be a member of Parliament muchless to be this Prime Odd Minister. Our nature Isle urgently needs decent, intellectual, mature people to be our Prime Minister and ministers of government.
      Our Nature Isle has been abused due to the fact of this failed incompetent Skerrit and this Questionable inmature failed Labour government.
      Our villages wrey doomed, lacks development of every kind where there are no jobs and our agriculture where our people have toil and failed due to the abyss of Skerrit’s Immaturity, lacks the knowledge of Socioeconomic development and has reduced our struggling people as beggars as our passports are sold all…

    There is nothing to gain from having Mr. Skerrit at any function to do with the economy or job creation.

    Guest speaker? Firstly, the man has NEVER had any formal training in economics or financial matters.

    Secondly, Mr. Skerrit has given birth to hundreds of lies during his tenure as the Prime Minister and Minister of Finance.

    Thirdly, nothing Mr. Skerrit says is even remotely true. The man is a congenital falsifier. He will come to this function with his prepared script replete with false assertions painting a rosy picture about the present state of the local economy. The ‘gentleman’ is a superb con artist.

    …and what exactly would the ‘keynote speaker’ know about expanding business and creating jobs through the Dominica entrepreneurship visa program? He will be giving more of our passports to his cabal business friends for them to sell and get richer. Why doesn’t the keynote speaker give the citizens of Dominica a detailed description of this program and tell them exactly how it will work? I guess that’s to much to ask! We need to dispose of this keynote speaker, he overstayed his welcome.

    The DAIC is just a piece of useless abbreviation. I just want to juxtapose the the personal characteristics of Mr. Lennox Linton against that of Mr. Roosevelt Skerrit.

    Mr. Linton Mr. Skerrit
    1) Empathetic 1) Sadistic
    2) Well-mannered. 2) Uncouth
    3) Articulate. 3) Incoherent (arm-arm-arm)
    4)Humble. 4) Egomaniacal
    5) Intelligent 5) Mindless
    6) Honest. 6) Nakedly Corrupt
    7) Selfless 7)Narcissistic

    The erudite Mr. Linton, by light years, is a much more superior person (in character traits) than the dense Mr. Skerrit.
