    one of the biggest problem in our country is the mixing of issues and hence the style of ” right or wrong is not what you do but who does it.” we must stop linking political accusations or statements or propaganda to justify other people wrong actions.

    Instead we must stand up against all wrong doings and help make Dominica a better place for us to live in. Dominica does not belong to Roosevelt Skerrit nor anyone person. Each and everyone of us will have our day.

    My brother if you are at fault find the best way to settle and correct that.

    If that’s the case, Mr.Winston Stoute You have been lying to yourself because when you withdraw money from your bank account, write a letter or sign any official document.You are conscious or unconsciously admitting the existence of Jesus by putting the date.B.C. before Christ.A.D. In the year of the Lord.
    2015 stands for 2015 years after the birth of Jesus Christ. And this Jesus is my Saviour ,He saved me the last Sunday in January 1971. O how I love Him.

      The things that I hear and read about. Jesus saved you after you renounced your Catholic Faith/Church, the Only One He established on earth? You think leaving the Catholic Church and joining another church to read the bible will save you more than the Catholic Church can? What false teaching. I feel sorry for you.
      Whoever told you you are saved while you are still living on this earth for probably another forty years, give and take a few years has deceived you. This is real mortal and spiritual ignorance.
      So you are no longer a sinner. As St. Paul said, “Whoever says he is without sin makes Our Lord Jesus Christ out to be a liar. ”
      Many are deceivers, influenced and spurred on by Satan, have gone out into the world as sheep in wolves’ clothing.
      St. Paul said: “He who thinks he is standing secure be sure not to fall.” It is in the Bible! Pray to God for enlightenment to return to the One True Faith/Church that His Blessed Son established which will lead you to…

    oh what about the garbage bin fraud- no one get charged

    I hate hypocrisy and like Bob Marley say I feel like bombing a church cause I know that the preacher is lying

    Deception !!!! My royal. Why is the charge of deception applicable to some people and others are glorified for acts of deception of even higher order.

    Talk about deception – why is Tony Astaphan not charged for deception after emailing Roosevelt IPO information and then blaming Lennox Linton and calling for the destruction of the IPO. He then admitted to the police that he did.

    Why was Roosevelt Skerrit not charged for deception after admitting to the police that he gave Tony Astaphan permission to email his IPO documents lying to the police.

    Inspector of police Mills mishandled money at the airport and he received promotion after promotion
    Steven Isidore on several occasions did not pay the taxes on land purchase for Roosevelt and he wasnt charged

    Tony defrauded National commercial bank and he was charged for deception
    Steven Isisdore has 42 charges that needs to be read to hi and Tony astaphan has an injuncti0n in the courts for 3 years now.

    I have plenty more

      Agnostic/atheist, what blasphemy. You are in the clutches of Satan. Watch your mouth, mind and fingers. God has taken note of your evil stupidity and hatred. You are going to get it from God – judgment and punishment. Worst yet if you are a baptized Christian Catholic and you renounced this faith. Woe to you. :twisted: :mrgreen: :twisted:

      if Skerrit and his team are not charged for deception then no body in Dominica should be charged for deception.

        That was what you were hoping for if Linton won the election. God knows better. You must cease calling the PM those names. I am certain you have deceived many women in your lifetime with more to come, hypocrite.
        While you are calling the PM names, God is taking note of all your sins, your deception to Him of all. You will pay the price someday. :twisted: :mrgreen: :twisted:

      Proof is required from you.
      The Eighth Commandment of God is: Thou Shalt Not Bear False witness Against Thy Neighbor.
      It is a grievous/mortal sin to disobey God’s Commandment. Therefore, keep this in mind.

      So what’s keeping you back? All you ALL do is come on DNO and Q95 and bla-bla. What Skerrit do you All? Why you ALL hate and jealous of ONE man so? For sixteen years,every month,every week,every day,every hour,every minute,every second,no matter the topic,Skerrit’s name has to be mentioned;But strange,you ALL never ever say anything POSITIVE about him. Always the negative which you ALL are very good at doing.
