  1. Same old same old
    March 4, 2020

    At the end of the meeting, at the end of the day the result will be the same Same old same old. It will be a continuation of lies, deception, and the hypocrisy of Roosevelt Skerrit and his followers. It will be a continuation of talk with no action, make people feel good while they are heading through very dark hours and a continuation of making Skerrit look like the king even when he is doing nothing to protect people. Why has Dominica not taken a decision to postpone or cancel all cruise ships until that coronavirus is under control? Yes I know Skerrit has destroyed every means we had of eating bread and the cruise ship industry is all we have left. But people are dying everyday from coronavirus and the cruise ships seem to be the main transporter of the virus. Why risk the lives of your people Skerrit? Despite all the lies we hear from CARICOM and McIntyre, we know Dominica is the lease prepared country, so why put us at risk? What sense it makes to test but can’t cure?

    “”In attendance will be the Chairman of NEPO and Prime Minister Hon Dr Roosevelt Skerrit”.

    But what the hell I hearing there’s no? In a meeting of such importance those people playing politics in with it? What the hell Hon. Dr I hearing there. Stupes. They behaving as if they know the coronavirus is already here because of the carelessness of Skerrit so they trying to big him up early.. if they’re using that to play politics with tell me if the information they about to give will not be contaminated with politics

      So according to all you, since ‘Dr Hon Roosevelt Skerrit’ will be in attendance should we expect doctor of deception to come with the cure for coronavirus? We are in a war together and all you need to put aside all the false title and politics so we could all fight this war together. Calling or referring to Skerrit pisses me off and I am sure that pisses off many people. It’s just a turn off and that’s why I continue to say Dominica would be a much better place without Skerrit than with him. Skerrit stands for division and no country that’s divided can stand

  3. As I see it
    March 4, 2020

    The mare fact that they addressed the Prime Minister as ” Dr Hon Roosevelt Skerrit” is enough proof that they are not genuine and as a result whatever they say will be misleading and disingenuous

  4. Yes it's me again
    March 4, 2020

    I’d feel far more confident if Skerrit wasn’t involved in this..
