    Skerrit is a dictator, he is Prime Minister Minister of Foreign affairs and finance minister. and King. Are there any other people in Dominica why does one man have so much power only dictators have that much power he has appointed himself in charge of everything that is what dictators do. He is also the puppet of the PRC who are going to make Dominica a colony.

    It’s nice to have recieved such distinguished guests. hearts off the our PM. My curious question is where does our president fit into all of this?
    Also I may be unaware but I never knew that our PM was minister of foreign affairs,I’ve always known him as Min of Finanace.

    Open to corrections.

    Skeritt is good at doing two things – grandstanding and fooling his supporters. Now all these dignitaries did was have a good time on the backs of tax payers who are finding it more and more difficult to meet their basic needs. 2 cars from South Korea, Peter Karam could have easily donated that, Spanish courses from Spain, any Cuban graduate could have done that for free, South Africa???? Russia, maybe a few bottles of cheap Vodka – Diplomacy gone MAD!!

    Forgive me…although i Support Skerrit – he should have been wearing a tie and a proper suit.

    it’s just more professional and fitting the role as he is meeting high level people

    Is mr. Skderrit head of State? Why are they calling on him instead of the President, Mr. Savarin? or is Mr. Savarin just a figurehead? I don’t understand this.

    I hope Skeritt’s main concentration will be on his Foreign dignitaries and what they will offer Dominica in the future, instead on focusing on the UWP coast to coast 25, meet the people tour, which kicks off today .

    With all that façade we are still begging for bread. Don’t be fooled my fellow Dominicans, this is just a face to make believe. Your Country is going down hill with this present leader. Send him packing.

    Sunshine. U are one of those people that like to see misery. One thing, God took Dominica out of the ditches and saved it from people like yourselves. God doesn’t hate us that much to put us back into that mess. Say what you want…….. Skerritt is here to stay.

    And what is the significants of this piece? Is it to show the PM knows people.
    Apparently they were not here to celebrate with the people of Dominica.
    People need to understand that Gov officials are elected to serve the people not the other way around. Did they get a tour of the island and are they going to use there experience in Dominica to encourage there citizens to visit, thereby boosting our tourism industry.

    DNO , simple putting up pics of the PM to show he met with visiting embassadors and adding nothing else is a waste of time and news worthy space.

    The PM certainly represents Dominica well, you can see the visiting dignitaries are happy to be in Dominica to celebrate our 35 years as an Independent nation – as PM Skerrit is fond of saying “a friend to all, a satellite of none”.

    Skerritt, go and learn to be an honest leader. A time must come when you got to GO.You are doing all u can to fool the people of DA to hold on to power.

    • hhmm
      November 7, 2013

      Its a COURTESY visit. It was not an official visit. So its like you home chillin and your friend come to ail you up versus you having a get together and you invite your friend over.
