    Cuba……like Dominica….broke!
    What can Skerrit do for Cuba that he can’t do for Dominica

    I stopped supporting Cuba the day that Cuba left the private citizen home that they were about to lease to house their Embassy and residence and instead opt to lease the PM owned house in Wall House. We can say what we want about America but that kind of corruption would never be condoned by the American Government.

    This is what Roosevelt revels in, taking photos with high profile foreign officials and reading scripts at prestigious, international conferences. Look at the photo. You can count all thirty two (32) of his teeth.

    He has the broadest smile while many citizens meet their unnatural demise at the Chinese Unfriendly Hospital. He shakes hands with foreign diplomats while food prices soar and unemployment rises to unprecedented heights. He drinks Champaign and has Beluga Caviar for dinner, while babies and children stomachs growl from flatulence.

    Dominica is seriously unwell. It needs much more than diplomacy to cure its numerous self conflicted wounds. Dominica needs to develop a positive, viable Action Plan
