    So China wants their puppet Skerrit to remain in power so bad that they’re financing new airport at his eleventh hour. Why now, and what is the quid pro quo? Is it his One-China vote in the UN?

    While he thanked God for a gift from an atheistic country, I noticed the Chinese in the audience weren’t amused.

    Skerrit, over the years you and your corrupt Labour government has failed us, and you have not brought our Dominica anywhere that we see change, productivity, development, but we have remained under poverty. Our people are suffering, with no jobs but relied on the continued “Handouts” dished out with insults to our poor people that YOU Skerrit has not made any progress in the socio-economic development of our people. It is a shame to say that what we see happening is the abused and insult of our people who must report and bow to you for handouts, scrubs, with the abuse of states funds where you have discrimatley ignore the office and professionals of the Welfare Division who are kicked on the side by your as you open the so called new “Welfare Division” at your office referred to as the Red Clinic, where these poor Dominicans you and your govnment has created come to you for handouts. This is a shame, abusive and insulting, while your blind ministers sit back & say nothing. Shame.

    Well…that was the worst military parade I have seen in Dominica. It is down to one of two things responsible for this shody display.
    1. The police really need their increase in pay because they are clearly lacking in vitamins.
    2. The make shift lighting they were using did not provide enough lumination for the police to see how they were marching.
    Hopefully the real stadium lights will be repaired and the police will get their increase before November 3rd next year.

    National Day Parade which by the way was a big national event, has now under Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, has now become a Dlp Worship service as now a days people come to worship Skerrit and go back home drunk. I still Red but I say it as I see it
