Parliamentary Representative of the Portsmouth Constituency, Ian Douglas has said the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) upcoming delegates’ conference will set the stage on a plan for what is to come in the future.

The minister made the remarks while addressing the DLP’s press conference held in Roseau on Wednesday.

“We are going into our delegates conference in the next two Sundays in Wesley to really set the stage on the plan for what is to come in the future,” he said. “Our Prime Minister has already hinted to some of those things.”

Douglas continued, “We are talking about the cruise ferry. We are talking about the deep water harbour. We are talking about the international airport that is to come.”

He said he believes that the DLP is the only political party with a plan.

“We have come to the populace. We have come to the electorate, to the population and we have laid out a plan…,” the Portsmouth MP submitted.

Douglas said as the country continues to recover and become stronger economically and fiscally, the party will give back to the people.

The DLP will hold its delegates conference in Londonderry from 2p.m on Sunday February 17, 2019.

    “Douglas continued, “We are talking about the cruise ferry. We are talking about the deep water harbour. We are talking about the international airport that is to come.” He said he believes that the DLP is the only political party with a plan. This man Douglas, is weird in his politics and in deep denial in his empty thoughts. No wonder Dominica is a failed state, with so called intelligent and educated people talking BS Nonsense to us Dominica about the Domininca that we see everyday for over twenty (20) years under this failed comical, corrupt, incompetent Labour leader and his waste of tie 18 useless immature Ministers.
    The Deepwater harbour, the cruise ferry has been talk off for over 18 years now, and it appears that Ian Douglass is outdated, just like his immature incompetent Skerrit who together with this failed Labour corrupt party have failed us and have 18 empty ministers wagging their political tails all over Dominica and just Barking woof woof, that no one understands…

    You guys need to step up your game. The Dominican populace is getting more educated and political savvy every passing year. The days of dealing with people whom are uanble to read and is quickly disappearing. I am not putting anyone down, its just that is the position we were left in by the colonial powers. We have been in control of our destiny for far too long to continue the same politics of ‘give dem a barrel of rum they will vote for me’, or in today’s case, give them a few handouts and they will vote for me. CHANGE IS MUST.

    A one-armed headless monkey could do a better job in Portsmouth than Ian Douglas. I will say this, and everybody in Possie know the truth that we will NOT vote labor as long as Ian Douglas remains the parl rep! The only labor people that will vote for him is those that can stick out his eyes and get what they want whenever they want from him. Is the same people getting over and over thats why they want him. Put Titus put Mano but I will not vote Ian again!

    Ian what plans,but the damn fools that do not want to work,and are part of this crippled economy will continue to support the lies,Dominica needs fresh blood,a curse looms over this once beautiful nation.Dominica is doomed.

    These plans that the MP spoke about should have come to fruition many moons ago. This is just shameless electioneering. The Silly Season has certainly begun. The DLP candidates are subjecting the electorate to the same old, tired, unfulfilled promises, nothing new. The country is presently stagnated . It needs a change of Ministers, with fresh ideas, a new thinking, morally upstanding, humble and caring. Dominicans have to stop gambling their future and that of their children with this uncaring, unthoughtful regime. At the next polls, VOTE FOR CHANGE!

    “Parliamentary Representative of the Portsmouth Constituency, Ian Douglas has said the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) upcoming delegates’ conference will set the stage on a plan for what is to come in the future.”
    Mr Joker Ian Douglas stop making useless noise on this fake political appetite of yours. For 18 years you clowns have staged a Fake stage of false plans for Domininca where ony 18 Ministers were recruited while our farmers were and have been excluded form production farming work over 18 years now. That you and your failed corrupt lazy worthless Labour government has imposed and injected us with, so we continue to survive in poverty the name and game of your corrupt incompetent labour government under your failed boyish so called Prie (Odd) Minister. This coming election we need you all out of office and to account for the misdeeds you all clowns have endured on a people who longer have jobs. Your government has been exceptionally lazy. We have seen enough poverty, so get out.

    I must commend Ian for his use of the English Language. Trained as a Lawyer, he’s smart, but not smart enough to fool those with common sense. Please publish the current unemployment rate in Dominica. Please provide a completed Environmental Impact Assessment Survey for the proposed International Airport and its confirmed location. Please provide the total cost of said airport and ferry terminal with the names of the funders and donor agencies or countries. You see Ian, unless you can provide the aforementioned documents that can be independently verified, you’re just part of another “Vote Catching Scheme,” with your fancy words.

      Excellently said, Anthony P. No more worthless, unsubstantiated pledges. Give the people documentary evidence about these undertakings. The people want deeds not words. Give the people costs, source(s) of funding, location, companies, contractors, duration of projects, the drawings/design/blueprint. This foolery has to stop.

      There is nothing new in the brains of these failed labour corrupt government which will have any impact on us and our Domininca. These guys have failed, they have been hopeless, they have been guided loosely by a failed incompetent, immature leader, named Skerrit. They have killed our Dominica agricultural sector. Now abused our name with passports sold to every ugly looking Tom Dick and Harriette. That is why Skerrit and his clowns Go,,,,Just get lost. Go…Go mind all you Funky Business. Leave us alone. Just leave us alone. we will clean up all you mess and have a decent Leader, Hon Linton and his decent UWP Team.
