    We are going to China to do this. “A UWP release also states that prevention of corruption in public office will be among the areas of mutual interest which will be discussed with the Chinese officials”. Some body help me understand the above. Strange bed fellows.

    Interesting! It must be noted that this information came from a UWP news release. Knowing these guys the first thing they would have published on DNO is the invitation letter from the Chinese government. So if this is not fake news please let us see that invitation letter, because as far as I know, anybody/group can travel to any part of the world at any time and for any amount of reasons.

      Young fool, why not suggest the same to Roosevelt Skerrit who have gone to China on countless occasions.

      Was he able to get on Face Book, and You tube and check his E-mails?

      If Roosevelt Skerrit that Mountain Chicken Carpaud Mentality had the opportunity to accomplish all you suggest why Lennox will not be able to accomplish the same. Are you suggesting the Internet works only for Dr. Punjab that Indian doctor of nothing, while it close everything else out?

      People like you who are ignorant and bias must expose your stupidity to the world!

    They have seen the light. That trip has been in the waiting for years. The UWP did not beleive in the “One China policy”. They were more interested in flying the Taiwanese flags around Roseau and making secret visits to the Taiwanese Embassy in St. Kitts begging for campaign funds in exchange for a promise to switch back to Taiwan if they ever won the election. Skerrit led the way. Its good news that they have finally seen the light. They can now ask about the “dangerous” MOU they blasted Dominica and China about. That MOU has deliverd the Windsor park Stadium, the west coast highway, refurbished Grammar school, and well advanced on the new PMH project and the hundreds of training opportunities for young Dominicans in China. But they (the leopard) still won’t change their spots. They will be talking about “corruption”. Is this another opportunity to paint Dominica ugly overseas? But the Chinese are no fools. They will deliver as best host as they have done for every Dominica.

      Thanks for not having “memoire poule” like some others. People have to operate by a principle. You can’t simply switch from one philosophy to the next after blasting fire for so many years without any explanation.

      I guess they can chance doing that because of some of the comments you see being generated here. They rely on the “accept any crap” support that they have.

      Countries usually involve both ruling parties and opposition in their diplomatic interactions. It is this opposition in Dominica that has sought to make enemies of everyone who has been associated with the government.

      I still say better late than never to wake up to the realities of international relations!

    The views of others, only represent themselves; not all Dominicans. Keep this in mind. If you support a Party, it is obvious you will only say nice things about it, overlooking their radicalism and disrespect.
    Frankly, I do not see why the government of China invited them. It is fair to state, all Linton has done is criticizing and demeaning the current government whenever he talks and wherever he goes. I hope China is open-minded enough to simply listen to them.
    Do not think China has not been taking note of their actions in Dominica. If all what they did as also obstructing the Police Force from performing their duty and they were China residents, China would not have tolerated their attitude. They would have been immediately placed in jail for a long time, if not for life.
    Therefore, do not underestimate the government of China.

      Just ask the former Pal sec under Mamo who asked the question ( Why the Chinese has such large a staff on such a small isnad as DA. He knows. DA is well located and am sure the Chinese as diplomats bring in spyware and set up on island. They set up, installed bugged all the ministries etc and know all bouef on island.

    Have you noticed how long the UWP delegation will be in China? 2 weeks
    By the way how long was the DLP there last time? 19 hours
    Will there be sexual favours, gold watches and gifts? NO. The reason is, that these guys are concerned with the development of Dominica, not getting drunk… like the bull dog for 19 hrs and had to be brought back on the plane in a wheel chair as he was too drunk to walk, or enjoying the sexual favours like you know who.

    Is it because of Ng Lap Seng’s convictions, that China is dropping Skerrit like a piece of hot kjan dasheen??? :-D :-D :-D :-D

  17. FEAR NO MORE
    August 8, 2017

    Fellow Dominicans what we are hearing and seeing here is totally different from what Skerritt and his incompetent DLP was secretly involved in. Remember it was NG Lap Seng, now facing criminal charges in the US, who facilitated the move to China> Every Dominican knows that by now. Skerritt wanted us to believe that he spent 19 hours negotiating with China Gov’t, that’s why the 4 pillar projects came up, as a result. Pure hogwash. Pure deceit and lies. That’s why, up to now, Dominicans cannot and will never see any MOU that he said he signed.

    Remember recently, Skerritt went to China, signed a $300 million loan from private Chinese businessmen and part of that money was for the hospital, part was to build a hotel, where Public works occupy, for Chinese?

    So in the MOU, China had to finance PMH renovation, but Skerritt still took a loan, part of which was for that same hospital? Remember, Chinese Gov’ informed they were not in that deal?

    LIES, LIES…

    When I was a boy I read How Europe underdeveloped Africa by Dr.Walter Rodney. Over the last decade plus we are reading ,seeing how China is penetrating Africa & the Caribbean. Now by 2003-4 Medard behind Pierro’s back went to B/dos and met with the Chinese. Took power after much elbowing after Pierro passed. Now we have heard much talk about china etc Now our opposition is invited and interesting enough our Ambassador who broke ties with the cabal is accompanying the UWP after giving the key note message at the resurrecting DFP convention( which Cecil refused to aire on the orders of Medard..I have been following the penetration of the Chinese into Africa & the Caribbean .(as talk has it many a joke has been made on Chinese illequipped attempts to penetrate anything lol!) but they are penetrating anyway and damagingly so.The mies of Zambia & the conga as well as the populations are being exploited. Kids are used as labour & underpaid, contamination of the surrounding mines,

      Do you recall 1996 under Eddo et Al we alost got Al Marsari and his mining plans for DA allowed by Eddo?
      The Chinese have their eyes on our water just like the minerals of Africa. Water is the most impt resource of the 21st century.They have already taken over a bottling plant and soon when they bribe the new power seekers who will want to show some development and show skerrit was more than the corrupt creature he is will sign another /new MOU and the beat goes on. China has money we are broke we will sell our mothers & kids mark my word. The patriots are far from patriotic. They too are broke.If they and others put out their D/can fellow men torent to the few chines what will happen in this new cycle?
      China is over populated & need resources and places to dump their excessive population.
      Are we going to wait until they begin to open factories and pollute DA? They do not care we know how they are. After profits only.

      Jimmit incident is foremost on my mind with Blackburne attempting to justify it?
      THe same is inevitable. They give our gov’t cash we give rights to our lands and waterways. They pollute corrupt by then Skerrit and his cabal will be stinky rich and living out of this soon to be polluted former nature island.They are known for blasting every and anything mines rivers just name it. Skerrit them will be in Maimi etc. who is going to get screwed?

        That song just crossed my mind so I looked up the words and it it by dead or alive which is coincidentally how we might be by the time the corrupt Neo-DLP is kicked out and replaced by a DFP-UWP hybrid. We will either be dead or alive then. Eddo might e President as we his dreams which seemed to be a pie in the sky before.
        Just going back to the song You spin right round”- it says like a record lol.DA’s politic is like a record too. we are spinning round and round like a record DFP_DLP soon UWP_DFP colition spinning round like a record- and who know by 2019 is dead or alive..
        Funny how things fall in place, with this song of 1983. I loved it then and I love it now even more as it came in handy for my thoughts. The brain is surely a wonderful thing so am not wasting it on hopes.

    The Opposition is a government in waiting. It is incumbent on their members to conduct themselves in a manner that would inspire confidence in their collective ability to lead the country. This is a good example. Opposition parties should always put their plans and ideas in the public domain for the electors to consider. Going to China to meet with potential investors and Chinese Government Officials, I assume, is a responsible thing to do. A responsible opposition does not only criticize the government but present a different alternative government to the people. This trip is a step in the right direction. Hope they will see it fit to meet with other industrialized countries.

  23. Don't Ask, don't tell
    August 8, 2017

    I must say that is a brave and good decision by the opposition. I wouldn’t be surprised that the Chinese government invited them, knowing that Skerrit is all but gone to spend a very long and permanent vacation with his old friend NG Lap Seng, and might have to go visit Madueke in London, followed by a trip to Iran to meet Monfared. In total it might be a trip of over a hundred years and China cannot waste time. I do hope they UWP team gets to see a copy of the MOU Skerrit signed with China but hiding from us, and I also hope they get know the Chinese company that Skerrit signed a $300 million contract with during the 2014 elections, and we want to know the status of the funds since we have not seen the international airport, the hospital, and the hotel. So safe journey to these Honorable gentlemen as we promise to keep you up in our prayers.

    Finally Eddo’s dream of 2009 and ahead of becoming the first P.M to become President seemed to be a pie in the sky. All of a sudden it re-emerges in his head becomes once again a feasible pie in the sky with LL as P.M and the recent development with China becomes a reality.

    So my little two pence, China sees the writing on the wall and is being upfront. The Chinese are expert on political strategy, and that is a pro active move to save face later. You see, they have already calculated that Skerrit and company will be sailing through rough waters which most likely will capsize the leader-‘ship.’

    China has a heck of a sweet deal with Dominica that it does not want to lose it. President Xi knows exactly what he is doing.

    Maybe a number of burning questions will be finally answered. The Chinese are very sophisticated when it comes to IT so they may have info that may explain a lot.
    I remember some time ago the PM came to Dominica and told us about some big contracts that he had signed with the Chinese but their embassy was quick to come out and make the disclaimer that this had nothing to do with their government. It would be fair to say that they weren’t pleased with him. Right now everything points to a wait and see…

    The conviction of Ng Lapseng’ along with the travails of Monfared and others coupled with the honesty and integrity of Team Dominica has finally gotten China’ attention. The Chinese would not have made such a bold move if they did not believe that the Punjabe Doc from Embar, Vielle Case is is serious trouble internationally. China knows that Uncle Sam (USA) will eventually spring on Sker – Sker at the time and place of their choosing and that of Astaphan and the Cabal.

They are penetrating African forests & mines-Congo Zambia to name two prominent countries with loads of minerals reserves, not the African women the local males are already in the lead and very able. The reverse has ocurred in China when African students go to China they have been beaten up seriously even killed for penetration of Chinese.

    Let me unequivocally express my deepest gratitude to Mr Crispin Gregoire a real Dominican, who has the interest of Dominica at heart…He was one of the REAL LABOURITES, who had to leave this “COMMESS’ led by Skerrit under the umbrella of DOMINICA LABOUR PARTY. We know it’s now a party without an ideology or philosophy, despite the name DLP.. It is unprecedented that a LABOUR PARTY would supervise such a high level of poverty, without any strategy to combat it other than passing about and sharing money, or giving out of money from an office. This is a party that has seriously lost its way, lost its moral compass, steeped in corruption and the people of the country need to send it packing. Xi Jinping the Chinese leader, with ZERO tolerance for corruption knows this, hence his NON CONSULTATION WITH SKERRIT upon inviting the opposition to visit China FOR high level talks….HOPE ALL OPPOSITION MEMBERS SAY WHAT THEY KNOW!!!!!!

    The Chinese realize sooner or later this regime will be out, therefore, they are making sure they are the fist to start talks with them. I am sure the Chinese must have heard of Monfared, Lap Seng, Madueke and decided, having a relationship with Skeritt is not the best for China.

    What now Hon. Francine Baron? You are the high-& mighty Minister of Foreign Affairs and have been side-lined? You mean, they did not even have to ask your permission to go and talk the government of China? Well, well sister, you really did back the wrong horse and made wrong bed, now you have to lie in it.

    What are the anti-Skeritt crowd so excited about, it is not the first opposition party from the region to be invited to China by the Communist Party of China. The opposition parties of Antigua, Grenada, Jamaica and perhaps a few others have all visited China at the request of Communist Party of China. Hopefully after 2 weeks of indoctrination the UWP will accept the One China Policy, promote the right of China to occupy the South China Sea and support China’s right to hold political prisoners. And they must not forget bring back some Chinese flags to wave at their rallies. :lol:

    China’s plans are always long-term and require stability and reliable partners. The relationship between China and Dominica was never dependent on Roosevelt Skerrit, or any other individual for that matter. They are much too important for that. Roosevelt Skerrit’s antics have drawn unwanted and negative attention and endangered those plans. He has become a liability through his own doing. He is dispensable and can be replaced.

    It is absolutely shocking to rews the hypocritical comments so far and to read the joke of a statement from Lennox. These are the same Chinese the opposition day in and day out have villified. These are the same Chinese they have disrespected over and over again in the local and international media. Now they want us to beleive that they can build relations????? What a joke

      Let’s face it partner, your man has been outmanoeuvred and side-line. He thought he could crook the Chinese by double crossing them with the Russians behind their back but they are much smarter then the fake Doctor will ever be. He can not redeem himself, it is too late but you can.

    Hey loser Skerritt and your unintelligent supporters,now take out your tissue paper and wipe your eyes.The end is here for you.The Chinese know that Ng Lap Seng spilled the beans to the American authorities,so there is no more need for Labor Party with Skerritt going to jail.Look Roro.

    Wow! I am so pleased with the dignified and state-like manner that the opposition is undertaking this visit.
    Firstly, a press release is issued and the team, a very formidable team of patriots, something that the ruling DLP has NEVER done in almost two decades, twenty years!

    I thought the bilateral relationship was with Skerrit and not DA!

    I’m feeling real proud!!!

    Take that terreberre labourites!!!

    I hope these men will ask about the agreement that Skerrit said he had with them to build Hospital and Airport , and especially the MOU he signed with them that none of us know about we the Masses want to know how much of Dominica they own..
    Congratulation to the party and I know they will be open and up front with us the people of Dominica.

    To those unsuspecting Labourites, Skerrit has hired to follow him across the country,and to CLAP, while he is insulting FELLOW DOMINICANS,countries DO NOT develop relationship with Prime Ministers,rather it is a country to country relationship..Hope these patriots ask about the MOU,that Skerrit still has close to his chest,and we dont know of! These are all Dominicans…No NG Lapseng,Grace Tonge,David Tsu,Hartley Henry,etc.These are educated people,and not DLP dullards,clowns and idiots!

      No mam, the Chinese are not interested in these shenanigans as u are, that’s for local consumption. They are planning ahead for 2024, just in case Freedom drop the ball and is only all-u dat remain. So organize yourself to win, I’m sure Chrispin would like u-all to be better organized, I’d also like to see a change by then. But u must admit Skeritt dem made some winning moves like aligning with China; and Mr Gregoire is finally aboard, nice move. :)

      We understand your level of political illiteracy. Nothing good to say means that you are to close and have too close to this illiterate leadership and corrupt Labour Government.
      Smell the coffee and wake, get away from Skerrit and his cabal. You are right with your penned name, “Dominica needs love..” …Dominica also needs decent government, not this corrupt Labour government. et out while it is still early.

      Dear Dominican needs love,
      There was a time when Skerrit and the rest of the Cabal and U sol, said that Honourable Linton was uneducated, so why all of a sudden you all are afraid of him
      go and tell the Educated Skerrit that he must stop “mamoteing” to read speech written by others, write his own speech, the SCOUNDREL

    WOW!!WOW!!WOW..These people can represent me,nationally,regionally and internationally.EXTREMELY SUPER BRILLIANT TEAM OF PATRIOTS!!!..
    Thats a SUPER HIGH POWERED TEAM….Labourites take that!!!.It was often echoed by DLP nobrainers that all these countries are enemies of the opposition,because Skerrit has led them to believe that all nations have a relationship with Skerrit and not Dominica.
    It is time for patriotic Dominicans to realize that the worst thing that has happened to Domini was Slerrits ascencion to the position of PM…He is not just dunce,inept,lazy,inarticulate and insultive,but he has stained our name internationally,thats why good Dominicans should dump him into political oblivion!

      On the contrary, it is good to see that the UWP can swallow its vomit and actually develop a rapport with China. They will now have a massive job of helping their supporters to unlearn all the nasty innuendos and scaremania about China. Well, maybe not because those followers are really “followers”, no need for a brain or analytical skills just swing with whichever way the leaders turn the tide.

      Just look at your mantra-like, brainwashed comments every time, whatever the topic.

      I’m also glad that they are learning quickly that Mr. Skerrit is not DOMINICA so when they are finished tarnishing Dominica internationally that is the same country that they will be hoping to govern.

      Good to see that the same attack-dog strategies applied for seventeen years are not working for them. Problem is I’m wondering if this is not too little too late. Did they get Mr. Rijock’s and the Taiwanese embassy’s permission to do that?
