Former Wesley MP endorses DLP new comer Fidel Grant

Gloria Shillingford addressing DLP supporters at the launch of Grant

Former MP for the Wesley constituency, Gloria Shillingford has  endorsed Fidel Grant who is now the new candidate for the Dominica Labour Party (DLP).

Grant was officially launched at a labour party rally held in Wesley on Sunday.

“As your last parliamentary representative, I feel honoured and privileged to endorse him today as our next Parliamentary representative of the Wesley constituency,” Shillingford told DLP supporters at the rally.

According to her, Dominica has come to an important time in history, “and now we have the power to maintain the political landscape of Dominica.”

“I have said to you time and again that what this country needs is strong, bright and reliable leadership to maintain the successful path that we are now moving towards,” Shillingford stated.

She described Grant as a Wesley man, a home–grown man, humble man, a responsible father and family man.

“And for that we know you will represent us effectively,” the former Wesley MP told the new comer.

    Gloria, I have lost respect for my cousin Athena, because of some things she done five years ago, causing some serious family issues: right now I don’t think I can go to my brother’s house in NJ even if I was running for my life and wanted a place to hide!

    Athena, does not have any academics; whereas you were born gifted, endowed with a higher intelligence, nevertheless, you should use Athena as an example, and do as she has done thous far.

    She stated her peace when she discovered there was nothing to gain anymore from Roosevelt; your commonsense should tell you to leave Roosevelt politics before it destroy you; as far as I heard people who cared and respected you no longer care about your existent.

    Roosevelt destroys people; I vacation in Canada, spent two weeks in the home of Athena, we talked politics, she assured me that Roosevelt promised her ministry win or loose: I warned her Skerrit was using her; she went home; now disappointed.

    Hopefully this time around you will get the ambassadorial post you want.
    Whenever you hear people come out in support of Labor like that its something they want… they don’t care about country, as far as they concerned the country can suck salt once they set up.

    Madam Gloria, there is nothing privileged in this where a new young person is likely to be exposed to the very failed and inept Prime Minister and corrupt Labour Governemnt. That is not where a young person should be linked to Skerrit and that failed Labour Government due to the talk about corrupt Bin & Fertilizer Bobols, Red Clinic Bobol, tendencies of this failed incompetent Labour government and its Odd Minister. How on earth can anyone link to a government engaged in corrupt practices and the abuse of our poor parents and families just for votes and alliance. This is a shame and disgusting and anyone who has aligned themselves to this failed Labour Government, Its so called Prime Minister and corrupt labour Govt. We need decency in public office. Skerrit must Go. Shame.

    Oh teacher Gloria, how I pity you. After having been kicked into touch you coming back for more crumbs from an ungrateful master’s table? So, so sad to see that.

    Gloria, there comes a time in life when all of us must know when it is time to quit!
    Personally, at this very moment, I am feeling humiliated to see you humiliating yourself still gallivanting behind Roosevelt Skerrit.

    The fact is Gloria, you are not endorsing that boy, the reality is you are supporting and endorsing Roosevelt Skerrit, the very same Roosevelt who used you, and eventually dumped you as an old used shoe!

    The last time I spoke my mind in regards to Wesley, which got nothing during your tenure as parliamentary rep, in addition to you making a fool out of my sister Marie, with your lying promises to her, did not go down to well with a lot of people, my comments reverberated as far as England.

    I had to answer to Desmond; you know him as well as I do; he thought it was due to hate.

    Anyway convey to him I called his number: No avail, tell him Churchill have my number: Call me!

    Gloria maybe this time we need weak and not so bright leadership, because
    For the past 20 years the “……strong,bright and reliable leadership” has gotten us worst off than we were 50 years ago. Having more people on welfare is not progress.

    Mordarer!!!😡😡. Fire burn you Gloria. May the tears of the oppressed serve as fuel for the fire that shall burn DLP out of office whenever the proverbial bell is rung.

    This lady has no pride, dignity, integrity, morals nor principles. She was shoveled aside like dirt in a drain. Can you imagine how publicly humiliating that is? Skerrit apparently has promised the ‘rejected 13’ re-employment as advisors so they are being bribed to tow the line. These rejects like Gloria Shillingford are just parasites looking to continue their feast at the expense of the poor taxpayers.

    “I have said to you time and again that what this country needs is strong, bright and reliable leadership to maintain the successful path that we are now moving towards,” …How di Feck is one supposed to “maintain a succesful path that they’re only now moving towards”?
    This is an expression of a conflict of conscience. Glor knows well this Gov’t is a waste of Dominicans time and Money. Both you and Grant joined the wrong team. nobody beleives your nonsense. You both are doing this for money, not for country..#shame!!

      Boy, if you are the Hector Marie I know, and you are her cousin, I am not surprised at her not responding to your letter.

      Let me tell you something, my late mother, Yvonne Dods (Dodds) is Gloria biological aunt, her late father Johnathan Dods is my biological uncle.

      You perhaps read where I mentioned my sister Marie, Gloria treated my sister like a dog!

      My sister could have got herself killed for supporting labor; all Gloria kept doing was  making promises  to my sister who is sort of mentally challenged from the day she was born.

      The last horrible thing my cousin did to my sister, is told her how she have some food for her: which comprised of sugar, salt-fish, and some flour; trouble is Marie could not get around.

      Gloria have a car, she could have driven on Hunt Road and give to my sister whatever it was in private; she demand that Marie go to her office in Wesley, so people could see the handout!

    “I have said to you time and again that what this country needs is strong, bright and reliable leadership”. Ms Shilingford, the UWP have all these qualities and this is where you should have stopped. The continuation of your statement was simply a fallacy of the facts. You did not do anything for Wesley and your successor will suffer the same fate.

    It is always a good idea to think before you talk. By your own words you are admitting that you were and since you are still the serving parl rep weak and a waste of time. By your own words you a dunce. I strongly believe you. That fact that you cannot tell us why Skerrit dumped you like a used condom is testament to your weakness and dunceness. And to confirm that you have to support the person who he unilaterally selected to replace you. Please tell me. Was the cookie jar left open to entrap you and the other rejects that none of you can speak out? You really deserve the treatment metted outto you. So grant is a decent family man and you were or are a loose stray woman roaming the streets hence your removal? If you care about Dominica so much why dont you tell us your price for stepping aside. If you care about Dominica and your constituents so much why wont you tell us how much your party has spent to purchase candidates just to remain in power. Oh for the love of power and money!!!
