Baroness Scotland responds to critics

Scotland said a lot of people talk and do nothing
Scotland said a lot of people talk and do nothing

Dominica’s International Relief Coordinator Baroness Patricia Scotland has responded to criticisms as it relates to her performance on the job.

She was appointed to that position by Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit following the passage of Tropical Storm Erika which devastated the island on August 27, 2015.

She is presently in Dominica on a ‘scoping mission’ and she has received criticism from some quarters for not giving a report of her job some six months after the passage of the storm.

At a press conference on Thursday Scotland sought to outline some of what she has been doing, saying she doing it for the love of country.

“All I can tell you is that I was having my 60th birthday celebration when I received a call to tell me that Erika had struck and what was I going to do about it?” she said. “Now, you know, that I am not actually a member of the Dominica Government and neither I am a member of the Dominican opposition and neither I am an official but I someone who loves my country.”

She said immediately after receiving the news of Erika she began seeking international assistance.

“I immediately sought to engage all the international players that I had in my IPhone and rang absolutely everyone to try and get government’s assistance supported by international assistance,” she stated.

According to her, support has been received from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Red Cross.

“I spoke to CDEMA ( Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency), we did the coordination work to try and make sure that Dominica was not flooded by International actors wanting to be of assistance of causing potentially more difficulty…,” she explained.

She said she has spoken to many international agencies.

“I have spoken to the IMF, I spent two days in Rome last week speaking to the World Bank…I have spoken to the Pope, I have spoken to the foreign ministers,” she stated.

Scotland said she will continue to do all she can to support Dominica.

She noted that there is a difference between her and many others, who, she said like to talk.

“Lots of people like to talk and they do nothing, I do and I am silent,” she remarked. “So this is the first time perhaps I am giving you an idea of what I have done on virtually every day since the 27 of August,” she stated.

    Thanks Patricia, you have officially put the final nail in Dominica’s coffin. RIP Dominica! Does any one have a block of salt to lend out? Mine is all done.

    A young doctor was doing his first stint in A&E at the notorious PMH. Within seconds of his taking up his post, a lady walked into the department asking for a check-up.

    To the doctor’s amazement, the lady had half her brain missing; nothing where her backbone should have been, a gaping hole where her heart should have been and absolutely no guts! Despite that she appeared lucid and cheerful.

    The terrified doctor asked the lady to wait and immediately went to the SHO’s office to ask for an opinion on treatment. The SHO responded: “Ask her if she is Baroness Scotland. If she says yes, then her condition is perfectly normal – let her go.”

    “At a press conference on Thursday Scotland sought to outline some of what she has been doing, saying she doing it for the love of country.”

    Can anybody identify anything that woman has done for Dominica since Skerrit claim he has appointed her some so called coordinator of nothing? One of the definitions of the word coordinating; or coordinator is: the act or actions of coordinating harmonious functioning of parts for effective results.

    Relief coordinator, in this case would simply mean she is out there international, accomplishing financial assistance to be used in the reconstruction, and development of there country! I challenge that baldhead woman, and that Mountain Chicken Crapo Mentality Skerrit to be bold, face the nation, and tell us, how much money, or anything materialistic she has secured for the country whiles serving in her capacity of whatever title she holds in the name of Dominica!

    Running to Dominica at the expense of the taxpayers will make anybody love…

      Running to Dominica at the expense of the taxpayers will make anybody love the country. I show my love to my country, when I wire home some hard cold cash as in money to my family, to ensure they do no suck salt as she told the people of the country they need to do. I don’t take from the country like people like that clown; nevertheless, I know the few pence I wire home helps the economy of the country, more than that woman’s hypocritical babbling!

      Show me the money, show the Dominica you love what have you accomplished, and stop talking fart, Show Dominicans the money, or one industry you influence into the country, if you cant deliever, just shut up!

    Madam,

    What you claim to have done in terms of coordinating our relief and said here in your response is nothing! You mean after all this time you are yet to state a claim to any or all the relief that have come to the country thus far and you are still in that position?

    You are an absolute waste of time much like the people who appointed you to this position. Stop coming to the fore and belching bubbles. You are not fooling any of the right thinking Dominicans. You are only plating on the minds and emotions of all the domies in red cans in this country.

    You will soon learn who is the chief of all corruption and just who is about to sou seh sel.

    Apres Bondier cest latre (Dominique), Apres Bondier cest pas Baroness sou seh sel avec King of corruption. That too we all shall soon learn.

    In the coming months as was well predicted at the St. Joseph meeting the information will be exposed in a fast and furious fashion that has been unprecedented. The ship is about to hit the…

  8. February 6, 2016

    Baroness! i’m sure your present status on the world stage puts u in position to reach out to almost anyone of your choosing to obtain funding for the disaster relief of Dominica post storm Erica. But your statement at the press conference leaves me in doubt as to what your real intentions and interest are. As a Legal luminary ans someone who has been a member of the British Parliament your choice of words is not a mistake by any stretch of the imagination and i quote “Now you know that i am not actually a member of the Dominica Government and neither i am a member of the opposition and neither i am an official but someone who loves my country” The timing of your report is also questionable since according to you phone calls to international assistance began long before your appointment as Relief Coordinator. What is your ulterior motive or that of PM skerrit please tell us madame.

    I guess the pm ask her to do some damage control on his behalf.She only made it worse for him.Thats more questions he has to answer.They are masters of deflection and spin.No numbers were coated at the convention to rebuff what is being said.Its like I’m admitting I stole the cookies but blaming someone else because they left the jar(deflection).Making all these calls but could not say I have ex amount to date.zero.Hope she was not returning calls to people who was wishing her a happy birthday.One more question.Im very bad at math but can add two plus two.Henderson said they collected $124 MILLION in six months.So for a year almost a quarter BILLION.So five years of just selling passports could pay for the recovery:It’s more than ten years.There should be enough after all expenses are paid.Plus what was collected post Erika.Where is that money.Again I’m not a friend math.

    Fellow Dominicans! The lady title is Baronness.She ask for nothing more and nothing less. She owes you nothing, she is not your child’s father. See you by the court House in the week. Whatsoever the Baroness does is for the good of Dominica and don’t you forget it. She falls short of telling you all, to do what you do best, it was a slip of the tongue when she mention salt. Enough collections to make for Pinard,where is your priority. Sorry for Mr. LINTON, but I am not going to lead this bunch I prefer to suck “salt”. Tell us how much you contribute and where did you get the money from. you are asking questions now you answer this one. How did you raise the money to contribute.

In fact we are a pain in the a.. .as far as you are concerned why else tell us to go and suck salt? Your concern is not genuine and only ever served your ambitions. All that is left now is for you to turn around and call us ungrateful and for what? To enable you to get your appointment as Secretary General of the Commonwealth? We have been used but shall survive as we did all these years without you.

    Thank you Baroness Scotland. You hit the nail right on the head. You are a person, a lady after my own heart. Tell it (them) like it is. You did right. I am no different.
    Many of them talk and never think. Their words are much ado about nothing. They do not impress the intelligent who utilize their common sense and those who truly want something good for D/ca.
    The person you have to inform and report your actions to, as you know, is the Prime Minister; not them. If anything, he is the one to inform them. You have informed them of your preliminary plans. This is good enough, which is all they should know. Actually, you have told them a lot which these critics do not appreciate.
    I can see that you appreciate D/ca more and more and genuinely wish to assist it.
    I hope you remain for Carnival. I am wondering if it may be your first one in Dominica. Carnival in itself is wonderful to see. Enjoy it.
    God bless you with your effort in assisting Dominica.

    Patriots are persons who love their country, regardless who is in power. They will do anything to assist in timesop of need. Traitors are those who castigate and curse their country and have no love for their country. They will see fault in everything and even everyone who is a patriot and who can speak or relate to anyone. Baroness has told you all that she is not a member of Government, Opposition nor an Official. The dear lady has made her mark in the UK. Those who do not love their country are always cursing their country, calling their country names; not wishing any good tidings. We do have a lot of these persons here and mainly on the blogs. Persons can support who ever they wish but should be able to say thank you and be grateful for the good things happening. They need to stop focusing on Politics, Labour, PM, UWP and always finding fault with everything. They need to stop and see whatever way they can help and contribute to Dominica. They are wasting time.

    The Baroness’s tone seems to be that I am doing this work voluntarily for the love of country so who dare question me on my achievements or lack thereof. Baroness Patricia once you accepted the offer from the PM who championed your fight to become the Commonwealth Secretariat you accepted the responsibility to report to Dominicans of your success, and provide details on what you received from each of the prominent individuals and organizations you contacted.
    One can assume that you took a page from your friend the PM “It’s none of their damn business”.
    Dominicans be the judge of the state of our beloved country.

    Well excuse me please Baroness, Skerrite appoint you as coordinator of international relief and not a blast talker. you should be coordinating the relief that the international community gives to the country. What Dominicans need to know is how much international aid/money that you have been able to coordinate. you seems to be addressing your speech to some goats. Most Dominicans are smart enough to see through you. You are worse than Skerrite and Vince put together.

You talk to a whole list of top ranking people, you were back after Erika to eat our little tax money while we’re under pressure in a grand fete, and with all your rantings you are YET to say what exactly came out of all your talks. So exactly who is doing all the talking that you are trying to throw shade at others on? Talk is cheap supply exceeds demand.. Now we want to know all your talking and calling and traveling at the EXPENSE of Dominica which you never mention WHAT IS THE VALUE FOR MONEY. You people need to realize you are not talking to Labourites only with blind allegiance or illiterates who can’t respond and disect your haughtiness.

    This is the worse period in Dominica history any how you slice it. She is so right. Look at how long all you just talking about skeritt bad and lousy leadership – What have you all done about it? I see fowls running to eat each time we throw rice or coconut in the yard. And boy, all we do is run to the lap top each and every time skeritt says or do something. We have become fowls. We don’t have the balls to change this government. Why can’t the opposition get a permit so the people could demonstrate in the streets and demand the removal of skeritt? They called for his resignation and then what? That’s why I keep saying over and over, that we need a strong opposition to stop the madness that’s going on. First of all, Linton should not have said that he was fearful and will skip carnival. Give me a break! That’s not standing up to skeritt! Mr. Linton only had to ask for security and he’d have gotten more than he and everybody else would expect. No one can touch you, Sir. Linton.

This is where some of you do not know your place, the difference between the public and the present government, namely the PM and his Ministers. Some of you are too out of place.

      If pope, in lower case letters, refuse to put a roof on his building in Roseau, Skerrit had to give five hundred thousand dollars to his puppet boy bishop Malazaire to replace the roof when the Roman Catholic Religion is the wealthiest in the universe: I want to know what she expect to get from that man?

      The Roman Catholic Religion owns the largest banks in the world, their business is taking from the poor, some of the Banks in Europe, North America, and elsewhere foreclosing on the homes of people rendering them homeless everyday; such banks as Chase Manhattan, (JP Morgan) are owned by the roman catholic church.

      At one time they owned Bank of America, they used it to prop-up apathy in South Africa! What talking to pope is going to for Dominica, or talking to United Nations. Henderson lives in the United Nations, he is Dominica’s Ambassador to the United Nations, if he could have gotten anything from the UN to help Dominica, that baldhead woman would not have to talk to them;…

    My salty story
    I can personally attest to the fact that lately I’ve been sucking so much salt that I’ve been constantly ……..out white sandy marbles which made me permanently constipated. Due to this abnormality, I was rushed to the doctor’s office where a thorough scan of my entire body was done. Upon observation of proceedings, my doctor realized that I didn’t have the internal organs of a human but rather that of a great white shark. All that salt sucking had caused my body to secretly evolve from a human to a fish. I was even told that I would no longer have the need for hands and feet but rather fins to help guide my path. Just like the little mermaid, I was condemned to grind in the bottom of the ocean for eternity. Then I abruptly awoke. It was just a dream. But thanks for the insult Baroness Scotland. You are useless and the whole world knows it.

      Now if the idea is to solicit for used cloth that is not difficult to accomplish; that’s not the kind of help Dominica needs. Industrial help is what we need and should be the ultimate goal. Skerrit is hanging on to that woman’s dress tail simply because she was politically appointed by the labor party government, in England. Once the Labor Lost the election, her political appointment ceased to exists.

      But Skerrit believe hanging on to her as she is a member of the British Labor Party, that makes her important, so he believe associating with her, will make it appear as if he has as they say in Dominica have connection with Labor Party in England; who are no longer controls…

    If she was a thinker of any level field, why didn’t she invite or contact the Opposition on their views going forward that’s how Professionals who are worth salt operate..

    When was is high offices they must drop their egos and do things in a manner of high standing, without being basis, who funded that massive party for her at the state Palace? didn’t she think Dominica need to tone down seeing that the WCMF and CITP were canx?

    See my issue with our black people when they soar, they still carry that lacking of doing the right thing, thus keeping their own race in a state of darkness..

Long before Tropical Storm Erika Dominica faced numerous challenges i.e. a declining economy, growing debt, unemployment, infrastructural development, waste management, a deteriorating tourism sector and complete lack of confidence in the agricultural sector. Prior to your campaign for the post of Commonwealth Secretary General your voice, image, or assistance was never heard of or mentioned in Dominica at all!!! Now you are trying to make it seem that it was “LOVE OF COUNTRY” that made you run out of your birthday party to rush to Dominica’s aid? Your sudden “love” and “interest” in Dominica was and continues to be a selfish one…furthering YOUR aspirations and YOUR interests! Despite all you claim to have done on behalf of Dominica, the result of our rebuilding process is dismal at best six long months later. Your legacy in Dominica is still your “Suce Cel” insult! Sorry!

      Now Madame Baroness, let us address your statement that “many people talk but they do nothing”! Baroness, you should be aware that in this precious little “Democracy” of ours, opportunities to assist depends solely on your loyalty and devotion to the Supreme Leader. I can give you, for example, the case of Dr. Dale Dangleben who traveled all the way from the United States to VOLUNTEER his expertise as a medical doctor at the Princess Margeret Hospital. Dr. Dangleben was denied access to the hospital because our Government believes that he does not support their policies, practices or positions on issues of national interest. This is just one example out of many! As a sitting member of the Prime Minister’s cabinet, The dishonorable Ian Douglas readily admitted in a recorded phone conversation, your good friend Roosevelt Skerrit CANNOT be trusted!
