    The United Workers Party TEAM DOMINICA is going to WIN this election. Tell Reginald Austrie; UWP have old ladies praying 🙏 for us too. The differnce is our old ladies can wake up early in the morning because they sleep at night 🌙. Also, our old ladies don’t have any frequent flyer miles. :lol:

    Dominicans, I believe that Skeritt has been planning for unrest in Dominica for a long time. This is the reason he created the condition for Ross to leave for Barbados. It is clear Hartley, a Caribbean Government, and China are a part of that conspiracy. Skeritt did not care what happened to Portsmouth people and their mortgage, and he also knows that Portsmouth people do not care about themselves and the future of their children. All he cares about is money, and China knowing that, exploits his greed: they are very good at doing that.

    You see, if there is unrest in Dominica, then Ross could have given the US a reason to enter Dominica. But with Ross gone, it would be difficult for that to happen. Guess who benefit would from keeping the US out? Yup, you got it, China and its listening post in the fortress they built in Morne Daniel to monitoring US activity. I do believe they have a strike force stationed in that fortress just waiting for any unrest to begin.

      Silly fool! Is your first name Reginald? Must be, because he is one of the few in DA who hasn’t got a proper command of the English lingo. But it’s still enough to be a government minister…

    November 29 is just 7 days before the coming general election, but that is the time that they UWP chose to present the Manifesto for the people to view. How can we see anything serious and promising coming from these guys–good Lord!

      We haven’t seen or heard anything serious and promising from you in years. Just massive doses of hypocrisy day in and day out.

      • December 3, 2019

        @RandyX, if “hypocrisy” is the only flaw that you can see in me, then I am more than “doing great” because you do not know me, so you cannot prove that I am a hypocrite from where you are. And of course, I am not!

        But did you say years? Is that how long you have been paying attention to my comments? And you call it hypocrisy?

    That’s an excellent plan of action for the foreseeable future of Dominica. It’s a real comprehensive and realistic manifesto. Dominica needs an economic re-awakening and this is just the plan to set the country on the right economic path. UWP has the right vision, the great plans and the far superior team. Voting for the other party (DLP) is voting for continued corruption; perpetual poverty; intense political and social fragmentation; lowest wages for public servants; lowest minimum wage in the Eastern Caribbean; lowest standard of living in the OECS. There is only one remedy to reverse this growing catastrophe. Vote the MOST CORRUPT, MOST INTERNATIONALLY SCORNED Caribbean political party OUT! Read the UWP Youth manifesto, hold the UWP government feet to the fire, and Dominica is bound to recover.

    Who ever from the so-called criminal workers party posted that manifesto to DNO took every words from a carbon paper in the dust bin. It reminded me of that idiot calls Viewsexpressed all he does is copy my words to make his point. So I am saying to those uneducated clowns of the so-called Workers party Mr Skerrit and his government has been doing all of what you mentioned in your so-called manifesto crap already ha ha ha 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

      Dog Biter and his ghost writer definitely did not read the UWP Youth Manifesto. It’s such a superlative document just what the doctors order. The Dog Biter and his trainer/ghost writer are much too daft to recognize a good thing. The document is a very commendable effort expertly laid out for the public to digest and absorb.

      Please give specifics. I would love to know. Just asking. If true, then your PM is lacking in the communication department. All talk, no action. But again to your point this manifesto lacks content.
      Just from a foreigner who has loved Dominica long time. You all are breaking my heart. “Put your visions to reality “ Bob Marley
      Jah bless you beautiful Dominica.

      Actually you’re wrong way back in 2014 UWP mentioned cannabis and planned to introduce the industry to Dominica. DLP never said anything about that matter, in 2014 in their manifesto. DLP actually copied a lot of the points the UWP party was mentioning during the campaigning (2019), why they have such a vague description of the plans for the cannabis industry is beyond me; way before the manifesto was released, they clearly articulated their plan, but now in the manifesto such technical jargon as ” engaged on issues involved in humanizing, legalizing…”Like really come on now just flat out say you are going to legalize it and the number of plants people can grow for personal use, stop wasting peoples’ time… the world is leaving Dominica behind it’s use is a basic human right!

      For an official party document much editing is required. The document speaks to “problems” without providing solutions. It did not state definitively that taxes will not be increased, so Dominicas look out for more tax. In a campaign speech Mr. Linton promised to give every household in Dominica $25,000,00 from CIP fees that will be recovered. None of that commitment is in this document. Therefore the people of Dominica can’t hold him to his words.

      There are lots of holes in this document and it poses more questions than answers it is supposed to provide. I would be very circumspect if i were an undecided voter.

      The document is pretty indeed, and that might be a smoke screen for those of us who do not read.

    Absolutely fantastic by a team (UWP), that will make young people an integral part of the developmental process and progress of Dominica.
    Remember that DLP has totally neglected the young people on island..The unemployment rate among young people is staggeringly high, and that is a serious indictment of a labour party that has handled and squandered about 100 times more money than all previous government’s on island has handled, yet Dominica is according to buffoon Reggie Austrie the last kar kar rat in everything.
    So the young people should gravitate towards UWP, a party which offers hope to the youthful population, to get them out of the morass of corrupt activities that has engulfed the embattled DLP. You all must demand electoral reform before the election is held..!

      @%, it is past time for you people to write something about your party, that will cause the rest of us to look up to your team; something that is PROFOUND and ASSURING.

      It is past time to leave PM Skerrit and his governing body alone, the majority of us are sick and tired of reading your negative ranting against him–stop with that foolish repetition, it is extremely BORING.

      You will have a lot of time to praise your party and their works, should they get into government and is doing better than PM Skerrit and his team. Say like 10, 15 years and counting? :lol: :lol: :lol:

        It’s so easy to beat Skerrits achievements in 15 years. Infact it’s barely a challenge because all he did is relieve the country of its precious and scarce resources and distribute it amongst himself and his ‘friends’.

        Skerrit is my prime minister. A very bad one, lazy, incompetent, myopic and disgraceful..
        In fact he is a total embarrassment to the country.
        You as an accomplished accomplice cannot see that, because you are colour blind..
        So stop poking out your corrupted head from the bushes, and babble garbage.
        Your shrewish lady!
