    Isn’t it amazing that you have an opposition in this capacity for the past SEVENTEEN YEARS polluting the airwaves with the same nonsense expecting a different result. If this was a company losing business year on year they would have gone into liquidation.

    The sad thing is that they do not know that they don’t know how to win the hearts and mind of the people. It’s really very sad to see the amount of energy that is being spent to destroy one man that is loved by the majority. A new vision has to be injected into this party to create a dent into this Labour Power

    Those of us who so believe in Skerrit, will soon find out what time it is. We are heading for a situation like Venezuela, so people we need to open our eyes, wake up. I was speaking to a labour supporter he is against what’s going on, but his question is who will lead the country as if SKERRIT is one that can lead Dominica. What a thing.

  4. March 6, 2017

    I’ve never met the PM but I keep him in my prayers all the time. Look at the evil things you all say about this man, then claim patriotism and love for country. How can we love our country if we are fighting to bring down our leader. It’s a shame that you are not appreciated by some of our own people. But I continue to pray for you, I ask that God gives you continued strength to endure all the lashings and to continue to run our beautiful country.

    Where is Linton? Why did he go to St. Kitts? Guess he was not invited – BLUE is Untrue! Skerro is NOT going anywhere and we have a GUARANTEED victory in the next general election. # 5 more years

    You UWP supporters are a bunch of hateful, wicked people. Your words as, embedded in your heart and mind leave much to be desired. You are not doing yourselves a mortal and spiritual favor. You lack godly enlightenment but will not receive it due to your adverse mannerisms. In so doing, you deny yourselves the blessing, graces and peace of God. You are the cause of division and disunity in Dominica. God will hold you accountable for this.

      @Da, Their are none more stupid than you ,Some of you Workers supporters are very backwards that is why you guys both in the USA and Dominica trying your best to create mayhem in Dominica ,DA people like you are all Losers and will always be Losers, take a good look at your leaders tell me what you see. DNO may not like what i have to say Lennox Linton, was in Salisbury inciting once again his so-called Workers Party supporters but it will soon be stopped.

    You UWP supporters must be very pissed off to see that Skeritt keeps enjoying the company of other leaders from the Caribbean while Linton has been treated like a disruptive student in a classroom. Everyone of these OECS leaders has a college education and degree. Can you imagine if it was Linton representing Dominica? That would have been total embarrassment.

    Hope Skerit is there just for the photo opportunity, and not representing Dominica. We all have come to realize that Skerit is not needed as prime minister.

    A bunch of millionaires made so from stealing money from the people they were elected to serve and meeting to plot how they can continue to do so. True deplorables.

    I earn my money by helping people. If I don’t do my job, I won’t have a job. These deploarables lie to get elected and when they get elected they fail on every one of their promises and guess what, by law, the only ones who can remove them are not the people that put them in, but other lying, stealing politicians.

    Amazing!

    It’s so sad, and would be laughable if it was not, that some people just cannot accept that there is far far more support in Dominica for Skerrit than there is opposition to him. In such circumstance, there is absolutely no way that the OECS, CARICOM, the US of A or any other responsible country or organisation will come meddling in Dominica’s internal affairs, merely to assist a few overambitious, greedy and jealous souls in satisfying their selfish desires!!!

      Where are the figures?At least i can tell stupid you that UWP got 17479 votes at the 2014 general election,and they had no CHARTER FLIGHTS of foreign foreign voters..So when you subtract the foreign voters,tell me the picture on island…Labourites with a conscience from January of this year have been asphyxiating Skerrit,for hiding from the CBS60 minutes interview,and his association with criminals like Monfared…Is down a precipice he is going.SKERRIT MUST GO!!!SKERRIT MUST GO!!!SKERRIT MUST GO!!!

    If the OECS was really dedicated to the encouragement of good governance,i think this would have been on the agenda of the meeting..For the first time since its discovery Dominica is steeped into the wosrt governance style that it has ever experienced..Corruption,insults,dealing with criminals,harrassment of opposition members are among the hallmark of this Skerrit led DLP…The time has come when both the OECS and CARICOM has to truely represent the people of the region.Why not take decisive action against rogue regimes,like the one in the Commonwealth of Dominica,and expel them from the grouping?How much can one man tarnish the good name of a country?These grouping need more men of integrity who will bring pressure to bear on these evil and roguish rulers/leaders.

      These heads of states are not stupid as what people like % and others would like them to be. They know what is going on in Dominica . Any intelligent person with the exception of UWP supporters can see what is taking place in Dominica. The OECS leaders will not entertain Linton’s ambitions because of his improper behavior in Guyana and furthermore Skeritt was elected by the people of Dominica and it is up to the people of Dominica to remove him from power if they so desire. The last time I checked Skeritt is enjoying a decisive majority support from the people of Dominica.

Do you want me to confirm it for you through the joint account Monfared left in Dominica? Think it would be a good time to meet President Trump.

      My Damn Business

      President Trump and some of his Cabinet cohorts are sitting on a RUSSIAN hot plate right now, so I hardly think his priority would be to cast judgement on an OECS/CARICOM Leader who may well be on a higher moral plane than himself. Dominicans do listen and view international news you know!

      I hope that the Rijock man and his cohort who have been trying to turn Dominica into a pariah nation have something American to write about now! If with all the daily disastrous Trumpism they still don’t have something American to write about, let me give them one: Breaking News!

      “A former California MAYOR was arrested at San Francisco Airport for embezzlement, misappropriation of public funds and grand theft” A MAYOR elected by the American people who is supposed to be the epitome of propriety and integrity is in the league of the same Monfared that has been making the waves in Dominica and he is right under Trump’s nose and there are so many more like him.

  33. The Third Border
    March 3, 2017

    With what Skerrit put Dominica in he is NOT fit to represent us in any damn meeting again. The only places Dominicans need to see Skerrit for now are:

    1. Iran, to tell the Iranians if he helped Aliereza Monfared squander the countries oil money, and if he benefited from it.
    2. USA, there he needs to tell the defense secretary or Trump if Monfared was able to gather any secrets during his six months hiding in Dominica that could pose serious threat to the USA or the world
    3. UK, there he needs to tell the British if Ms. Allison Madueke she gave him money to hide for her and where he intended to hide her during the spoilt trip to Dominica.
