    You all are just envious and jealous of the man. You all gang bangers will never get to the man’s level – not even expelled Lennox. I honestly think that Dominica deserves better than a high school drop out. A man who never sat for the GED far less the GCE. Come on Dominicans, we can do better than that.

      Hats off to Lennox, because he comes across as more literate and passionate about Dominica. He should therefore be congratulated for reaching thus far despite you considering him to be an ‘under achiever’.

    If there is so much funds available how is it the Library Roof still missing,,,

    Mista Dem don’t have no shame and Dominicans should take what dey get because right there in their face is a bowlface lie!!!

    In one of those pictures you can see the Library roof still gone from Hurricane damage with no signs of being repaired,,,

    DNO how comes all you not doing real investigative reporting and start asking real questions,,,

    ADMIN: This question on investigative reporting keeps coming up so we will try to respond here.

    Firstly, we do ask questions but may not receive answers from the authorities, that is where investigative reporting can come in.

    However, it can take days, weeks or months to do a full investigative report and even then it may not result in a story that can be published. We simply do not have the resources to do that regularly but we will do it whenever we can.

    I will be waiting patiently for Lennox to give us a real budget tomorrow. I really admire Lennox, the way he speaks with authority. So intelligent, a thinker. He believes in justice and he means what he says. A real leader, the type of leader Dominica deserves.

      “I will be waiting patiently for Lennox to give us a real budget tomorrow. I really admire Lennox, the way he speaks with authority. So intelligent, a thinker. He believes in justice and he means what he says. A real leader, the type of leader Dominica deserves.”
      This is well put, well said, and we appreciate your input into this serious matter that concerns our nature Isle Dominica, poorly government and managed by this failed inept, incompetent Skerrit. Our people are killing each other and there is no apparent visible intervention from the government`s point of view. These young men who are in trouble have been roaming the streets of Roseau and other areas for 20 years under this failed Skerrit tenure. It appears that Skerrit is blind to his people, but eyes open wide to the Bin Bool and Fertlizer Bobol and also the Passports scams that go on. That seems to be the matter of business under Skerrit as far as our Dominica is concerned.
      Skerrit`s a failure and he and corrupt Labour…

    Sherrie has no formal training in economics nor accounting yeti he’s the Minister of Finance. He has made 14 budget presentations and all have led to the demise of the economy. All he takes to parliament on Budget Day is a red briefcase with a prepared speech written by a Voodoo mathematician. Nothing transformative has ever happened after his previous 13 bland budget speeches.

    PM, you said if politicians offer you things you must ask them how they’re going to do it. Where is the money coming from? Tell us how you are going to do all of this Sir.
