    @ Lin Clown, under the DNO’s article about Grenada PM says he will not gamble with his people, you posted on my comment that I and UWp supporters are idiots and that’s why Junior lost his deposit. Unfortunately you exposed yourself because Junior did not lost his deposit because he polled over 1/8 of votes cast. Skerrit got 1105 and UWp 228. Total votes cast =1333. Uwp got over 20%. All you so blind and misleading. No UWp lost their deposit. Here is the Constitution and DNO please correct these idiots when moderating

    “Deposits shall be returned by the Financial Secretary to the person who made the deposit or his personal representatives, as the case may be, upon the production by him or by them, within one month of the conclusion of the election in respect to which the deposit was made of a certificate from he Chief Election Officer that the candidate was elected or polled not less than one-eighth of the total number of votes counted at the election.”

    Are they the Bajan advisors of Roosevelt Skerrit? If not I don’t understand why that would be breaking news in Dominica.
