    Two more ‘moon faces’. All of them DLP ministers. How comes? Are they being paid to much? Why are they getting so fat?

    The annual budget day in Dominica is nothing but a desperate attempt to legalise the shady financial dealings of this government which, under normal circumstances would not stand up to any scrutiny by an international accountancy firm. Long story short: another farce initiated by the master of smoke screens!
    Does this budget contain any clues as to the whereabouts of our CBI money, or audited accounts of Skerrits social housing program or the travel accounts of our own Flying Dutchman?

    Skerrit what happen you and your wife carrying the briefcase of lies to the house. What’s in this time!!!!!! . When you opening the
    briefcase opening it Slowly , so that a few lies don’t escape . When you finish telling those lie i hope you will sit and listen to the opposition leader respond to the briefcase of lies . In other times when you finish reading your written speech, of the same thing over and over you then leave the house and run pretending you have thing to do. But we know you can’t give a better speech than the opposition leader . The funny thing is, you normally leave the fools behind for the opposition leader to educate what a dam shame . Will be listening.

    I will be listening to learn about expenditures for Geothermal Energy, excavation of Crompton Point and reduction of VAT and other excise duties to help address inflation and the current state of economic malaise on island. I will also be listening for more details regarding the purchase of DOMLEC and plans to address revenue, now that the EU is aggressively moving against Citizenship by Investment. I want to hear more about inputs into agriculture. So, my ears will be glued to the nation’s station to hear the details from Skerro and company.

    Since we are on the subject ‘Budget 2022’. We recently went through companies house website in London and found numerous companies established around 2013 and dissolved approx. 3 years later. All these companies, even though having had different names all had one thing in common, a Director who used to be the girl friend of Dominicas big man. There is only one plausible reason for establishing a company that never traded and was dissolved shortly afterwards: all these ‘companies’ were able to open various bank accounts with the certificates of incorporation from companies house. Why would somebody from Dominica require so many bank accounts in Europes largest financial centre, I hear you asking. Well, YOUR guess is as good as MINE. By the way, we found all these accounts still open, but we obviously never managed to obtain further details from the banks in question. Nevertheless we thought this info might add a bit of spice to Budget Day 22 and hopefully some questions being asked.

      Very interesting? All along I knew that this ‘former’ girlfriend was involved in shady business. She spends a fair amount of time here in London. I actually logged on to Companies House and found the info you are talking about. None of these companies ever filled accounts which means they never traded. Very fishy, very fishy indeed!

          Man bite dogs is upset because he is living in a basement in the Bronx and cannot come back to Dominica.

          Both he and Lin Clown are angry because they are illegal in the US and cannot return home not even during elections when they both can get a free ticket.

          They are both angry because they cannot return to enjoy their free Dominican tax-welfare apartment in Dominica.

    I’ll be listening. I want to see if there will be additional funds provided for putting a stop to the unacceptably high amount of child sexual abuse in the country, the completion of the Good hope to Rosalie road and the road from Ravin Cork to Canfield. I’ll also be listening to hear accounting for and an acknowledgement that the report from Dennis Byron which our tax dollars paid for is in hand.

      Are Dominicans not tired of getting their hopes dashed after each budget presentation? How many times must this parasitic liar fool you before you get a grip of yourself?

      I’ve previously said so many times that every word or action of this opportunistic con artist is meticulously calculated to dupe the gullible and the unsuspecting.

      This notorious perjurer sits on top of Dominica, fool the people over and over again with promises he has no intention of keeping, then laugh until his stomach aches.

      Every budget that he has presented doesn’t worth the paper it is written on. They are a colossal waste of the country’s finance resources.

    I have thrown out these questions to the public repeatedly without success. Here I go one more time.

    What qualifications does Melissa have to be a parliamentarian? Is it the designer outfits she sports in public? The woman doesn’t even possess minimum academic qualifications to be a store clerk.

    She has no ministerial portfolio; CANNOT represent the country in any high level discussion regionally nor internationally; but living high off the hog with her red snout in the financial trough of the country.

    With under-achievers such as Melissa, the once revered Parliament of Dominica, has been reduced to an useless instrument. Little surprise, most of the times, in there sounds like a mad house overrun by overly aggressive inmates.

I am thinking now that is your your job to smear people up. what you do to support yourself is bringdown people by hiding behind a computer screen. You must live a terrible and miserable life.

        Looking at the abbreviation of DS, lots of things come to mind in the oxford dictionary and others shows different meaning to DS but in Dominica it means Damm Sot . Can not believe in 2022 we still have people like you thinking the way you think.
        What happen Dominica is skerrit mother own. Saddam Gaddafi Chavez Amin and many more had more power than skerrit and some of them they die like rats. Power is for a time , their own people turn on them just a matter of time Kamar is a capital B.

    This picture is one in a million. It captures a number of things to wit:
    1. The alleged most corrupt couple in the Caribbean
    2. The alleged most evil couple in the region
    3. The number one rated alleged “sham, for money marriage” in the region
    4. The top rated alleged dumb-blonde wannabe in the world
    5. The top rated alleged “Voodoo” practicing couples outside oh Haiti in the world
    6. The highest rated political couple likely to be jailed in the near future for alleged crimes
    7. The highest rated alleged con-artists couple in the world.

    But as my old granny would always say; “Those who take advantage of the people today, shall feel the wrath of the same people tomorrow”.

    Budget day, another day of fluff, hype, lies and futility. This is a day when a man who has never had a single course in financial matters mouths off about finance. This man doesn’t even have a casual relationship with the truth. How can anyone trust him but his gullible followers believe him?

    His wife, Melissa, who features prominently in recent budget presentations, only brings her clothes and funny looking , colonial hats to the debate.

    This is the unadulterated TRUTH. After every budget presentation for the last decade, the economic woes in the country worsens. More citizens descend below the poverty line swelling this group to unprecedented numbers.

    Dominica needs an astute and visionary leader to escape this calamitous state of affairs that has gripped the country for the past two decades under Roosevelt’s internship.

These people have no comprehension of their duties and respoinsibilities to the souvereign state, the Commonwealth of Dominica. When they are done ripping off Dominica, they will move to Dubai and Macau, and Dominicans, Labourites in particular will say that they did not know even after all the international warnings!
