    Hmmm, look out people. Skerrit on carnival weekend here told us he going to Belieze? Boy PM maybe making a stop in Miami Florida to visit his friend Alex Saab, who is in US custody and poopoo out all he knew about his conspirators. Pm do you expect to be interviewed by the US?

    He wouldn’t miss a jolly like that at the expense of our state coffers. How about the ‘companions’ that go with him on ‘state business’, naturally courtesy of the state of DA authorised by yours truly?

    Boy I would really want to see the itinerary of the prime minister to see if he is making any stops or plane connections in any US state or territory, where US have jurisdiction.
    I say so because I know the US have unsealed warrants awaiting certain Easter Caribbean big shots that Alex Saab sold out during his cooperation with the US. I know PM Skerrit is a good boy and is not one of the wanted boys but as a Dominican that loves my PM I am just being concerned. Safe trip PM… we will miss you for the Windsorpark carnival though.

      One of the beauty of hate; is that for someone to hate another, that; or the idiots have to first hate themselves!
      Anybody who always expresses themselves by calling other people out of their names using profanities, is not smart; and are actually scums of the earth!
      They are a low life kind of people going nowhere in life.
      Anybody who continually term another a jack… is by reputation, and the jack…, ridden by their very own stupidity!
      It takes a jackass to identify another.
      I Francisco Telemaque, is a jackass, that is why I can identify the greater Jackass than Lennox, and myself oui!

    With the worst crop of leaders in the history of the independent Caribbean region,Gaston Browne, Roosevelt ‘Putin Jr.’ Skerrit, Comrade Ralph), I have zero confidence in their ability to reverse the downward trajectory of the economic, social and political conditions in the Caribbean.

    Look at those aforementioned buffoons. They were dirt poor before getting into government. Now Bill Gates doesn’t have anything over them when it comes to material worth. Meanwhile, most of their countrymen live in unthinkable poverty.

      Well I mean with this fine selection of children with bad brains, of course the region would be a dumpster fire.

        Listening to some of these ‘leaders’ they sound and behave like petulant children. They throw frequent tantrums at the slightest disagreements. They are children in an adult’s body.

    Thanks for letting us know. It does make a refreshing change from keeping us in the dark about our political leader’s movement. I would also like to see more regular meetings of the parliament, the one forum where our people’s representatives can openly give voice to their opinions. The way things are I wonder if the P.M. even considers the views of his cabinet if they differ from his. We simply don’t know, do we?

      ‘I would like to see more regular meetings of the parliament’. Are you sure of that? What we have for a parliament is in reality a cockfighting pit.

      The parliament of Dominica is a place where government ministers and senators go to curse like drunken navy sailors who have been on sea for far too long. A place where the Speaker is overcome with megalomania and a touch of psychosis. A place where gun-toting gangster police breach at will while the parliament is in session.

      The parliament of Dominica has been reduced to an useless instrument under Skerrit’s despotic misrule. Listening to parliament today is similar to listening to the inmates from a mental asylum debating how to run the asylum.

      Pipo, this is the problem with Dominicans. The norm, routine things are breached so often that when they are done by this government, they become like special favours.

      Here you are thanking the powers that be for informing the rest of the country that the Despot is travelling overseas. This is routine in all the other OECS countries. This is how autocrats come to dominate. If you live in a country and don’t stand up for your rights nor demand what should be normal routines, you eventually lose them.

      If I were you, Pipo, I would have withdrawn that undeserving compliment. Compliment them for actions such as free and fair elections; sharing the country’s resources equitably; no victimization; a buoyant economy; societal cohesion; livable wages; legal papers of ownership for government built apartnents; et cetera. How can you dear to thank your OPPRESSOR such an unremarkable routine?

        I read it as an acerbic, subtle barb. FPerhaps I was wrong?
