    UWP must come to the terms of modern politics. Grenada opposition went for an attorney at law, St. Kitts elected a doctor, but in 2022 UWP is still going with Lennox Linton. who did not complete high school. Build the party, lets get a young leader, with some good title before their name.

      I don’t care, as long as he doesn’t present himself with purchased titles (i.e. Dr. Dr. or similar from Punjab) and as long as he rids our country from corruption, lawlessness and fake elections. Lennox will do for me, because he IS a patriot.

    That’s it Marty,with supporters like you,UWP will never get in power.You and your bunch of blind aholes continue to try to full a metal drum by carrying water in a basked.UWP was kicked out of office for massive corruption,victimization,lies and greed.How the hell do you expect support from public servants when you bug their offices and called them jerkers and sherkers.How the hell do you expect support from police officers when you destroyed esprit de corps.And how the hell do you expect voters to vote an uneducated leader who was expelled from school,and deported from a Caribbean islands.And how do you expect voters to vote a political party who stole and cannot account for hundreds of millions of dollars from the Reengineered citizenship programme.Thousands of Dominicans are reaping the benefits of the CBI programme,by
    being given $250,000,$300,000 and $400,000 FREE.Dominica can boast of more than 37,000 registered vehicles from a population of 72,737.You think Dominicans…

    Marty, you are 1 000% right! But, again, what should we expect from these blind, political minions and thugs of the most corrupt political head in the Caribbean probably in the western hemisphere.

      Read that book, ‘The Fundamentals of Political Science’, Chapter 10 devotes itself to how OPPOSITION PARTIES should accept defeat graciously. The book is authored by Dr. Timothy Harris of St. Kitts. Dr. Harris is a true politician.

    Those presently in political power learn from this. It’s not for an indefinite time.

    Dr. Timothy Harris, I understand, thought that God appointed him as prime minister for a lifetime. He has been booted to the curb by the same people who put him in the apex position of government.

    Roosevelt too will be outed. He would eventually be laid to rest on the political landfill of Dominica where he justifiably belongs.

    In Dominica, ignorance and corruption has caused us to be governed by our inferiors.

      The same Caribbean observers were the same ones in Dominica and declared the election free and fair but for people like Ibo and his crap supporters as long as Skerrit returns to power, the elected was tainted . What a life! These UWP supporters will not accept defeat graciously. They are cancerous , rebellious, cantankerous, and bumerous.

      And that is exactly where he belongs on Kennedy Street on the 5th floor of the Financial Center. You could not have said it any better. That is how you made your bed, that is where you lay, on the land fills of Kennedy Street. I hope the PM is having some waffles and honey and scrambled eggs and a large bowl of oatmeal with some sliced bananas in it for breakfast this morning. For Ibo, his breakfast are always filled with bitter and hate and envy. The sad story of an old man who is yet to comprehend life at his age. It is beyond my comprehension. Good thing I took comprehension in school at SMA. My teacher -Mr. Rommel Lawrence who has been residing in Barbados, the land of spouge and the Draytons Two and the late Jackie Opel.

        Get off your rockers, Marty, and accept a loss graciously. Stop behaving like a cry, cry baby who needs breast milk. You are too old to be still breast milked.

          You are nuts too! Do you expect the Opposition to be gracious about constant unfair elections, intolerable corruption, misappropriation of state funds, wrong accounting of CBI proceeds, sky high crime rates… you want me to continue? If the opposition was ‘humble’ and ‘gracious’ we would not have an opposition no more. Of course you defenders of the CM would love that. Let me tell you something, your hero is under a lot of pressure again right now, that’s why the red ant brigade is so aggressive right now. The end for all you is on the horizon.

            Well, Marty, do you realize that the UWPWee has never once complained about “fairness” or “unfairness” in the constituencies that they have won, using the same rules, the VERY same rules that have guided elections in those constituencies that Labour won, and the same rules under which the UWPwee won in 1995? If our election rules are “unfair” why accept the three seats that you have won? Surely, these are illegal seats too, no?

            Break the cycle of abuse, Marty! Stop letting Linton et al prey on your sincere support for them so they can pull wool over your eyes. Do not allow yourself to be a victim anymore, Marty!

            You don’t make any sense, you Russian despot. Why would they complain? They found nothing wrong in these constituencies. Do you think they complain for the sake of it?
