ANNOUNCEMENT: Lawrence-JnoFinn invites Bannis-Roberts to join hands for betterment of Castle Bruce constituency

Her Excellency, the Ambassador Mrs. Loreen Bannis-Roberts should thank me for not deciding to contest for the Castle Bruce constituency, because had I agreed to respond to the call earlier, she probably would still be employed at the bank.

Mrs. Roberts should also be reminded that selfishness is not related to one’s genetic make-up; selfishness, greed and other such negative vices are learned behaviors. I know who I am and constituents of Castle Bruce, Tronto, Depax, Good Hope, San Sauver, and Petite Soufriere, Belle Fille and Fond Melle also know of my works in the community. I also note that she made reference to my retirement status, but I am proud to have served the public as a professional educator and I look forward to serving in government.

I ask Mrs. Bannis-Roberts to get serious about the needs of our people and let us join hands, even with our partisan differences, to improve the circumstances of our dear people. The door is wide open when Mrs. Bannis Roberts is ready to come back to the fold – this time to selflessly serve her people .

    This is what we call “passive aggressive”
    I’m not at all surprised by this response from teacher Ernie. Instead of taking the high road she decided to stoop as low as the ambassador for what? To have the last word? Sometimes it’s best to just keep your mouth shut. Yet she will be the first one singing dancing in the church however we see how nasty and vile a “church going” woman in politics can be. I myself don’t like ambassadors ways nor do I care for teacher earnies ways..all of this back and forth has me embarrassed for them both. And this is the type of leadership you all have in this country? Instead of making public declarations about one another how about you speak on what’s urgent right now in this community, like invoking posted speed limits , proactive police foot patrol in high crime areas, how about we talk about the fact you ‘so called” leader’s still have NO CURRENT in the CB shelter where severel elderly folks still living with no current nothing??? Ignorant…

    AMEN TEACHER ERNIE! Let her know. She would still be employed at the bank as the secretary in the loans department and still living in the apartment building at Rose Street. Ernie deciding to not answer the call then doesnt mean she is a bad mind now. Now her calling is necessary because is now we are in serious danger. Bannis is a snake. no spine. jumped ship for the sake of money and position. people like that you feed with a very long spoon. Same for Isaac, Same for Severin in the white house.

    It is time that the people Castle Bruce, Tranto, Depaix, Good Hope, San Sauveur, and Petite Soufriere, and Fond Mele wake and smell the political stench and get away, run away from this Skerrit’s failed Labour government. We the people of the East, a thriving community in the past in agriculture and culture are fed up of having that failed Skerrit and corrupt Labour government playing dirty political games with us in the East. Loreen is of no help, as it appears all the thoughts and happening for Castle Bruce appears to have been spoke to by Skerrit and that is why our Castle Bruce has deteriorated where nothing is happening and Loreen Bannis sits back and unable to do anything because it appears Skerrit has his own personal failed political matters, that is where he is today. Skerrit is this fail fanfare waste of…

    Your diction and prose in this short article shows that you are to be respected and you could be the type who given the appropriate position and support could be a useful candidate to your people and the wider Dominica. Unfortunately, I think your surreptitious attack on Mrs Bannis has devalued you. One expects better from you and the last paragraph convinces me that you are better than to descend to the abyss of mepuis (Eg. Her Excellency, the Ambassador Mrs. Loreen Bannis-Roberts should thank me for not deciding to contest for the Castle Bruce constituency, because had I agreed to respond to the call earlier, she probably would still be employed at the bank). That statement though nicely written diminishes you, you are better than that, so let’s strive to be our best selves.

      Yes! Sometimes you can lose the “battle” trying to win the “war” too many emotions coming from these so called “women of God” I am a believer and a woman and I’m looking for a better example of leadership coming from these two very bitter women

    • All d way with Ernie
      July 29, 2019

      I love 💘 teacher Ernie. She’s bold. She’s intelligent. I love her more now I know she can put anybody in their place. CB will be in good hands with Teacher Ernie. She should have contested the seat long ago. Maybe she would have saved CB from Hurricane Loreen.

      Thou hypocrite! Not a single word of reprimand for Loreen with her undiplomatic response to the gospel truth. There are two animals inside a human being, a lion and a lamb. You can’t only let the lamb out as people will walk all over you. Occasionally, you have to let the lion roar to ward off the beasts galloping towards you to do grievous bodily harm. When you are too quiet this is when people use and abuse you. Stop your condescending game.

    Ernie Lawrence-JnoFinn is an individual of superlative qualities. The lady is most intelligent, most decent, most humble, most caring, most effervescent and I could continue on and on. This is the caliber of representatives the country so badly needs. A country can only be as good as the politicians that make up the government. They are the ones that set the policies and the tone for the people. If a government is lawless, corrupt, belligerent, uncaring then the country becomes this way. Look at Ernie’s response to the rogue ambassador’s uncouth remarks. If you wanted someone to nurture and guide your young daughter or son, would you choose Ernie or the rude, egotistical ambassador? Ernie for Castle Bruce, no compromised pastor’s wife.

  9. July 29, 2019

    I really don’t see the need for all of this personal attacks. Mam you have already done the damage. I think what you should be really doing is. Apologising to madam Banice. You now asking her to work with you.

    Lorraine Bannis Roberts should listen to teacher Erni. Mrs. John-Finn has a lot to offer, she is an educator, most important profession in the universe.

    Lorraine you have betrayed us before why should we listen to your verbiage now. You have no respect for Castle Bruce for your Judas like behavior. Enjoy New York, a change is coming. By the way you maybe related to the distinguished educator,s children.

    I just love this woman. She’s a role model for all young ladies to emulate. She has class. She’s eloquent, well polished, intellectually capable, always well attired without over doing it, In fact, she possesses most of the positive attributes and characteristics of a decent human being. She is an invaluable asset to Dominica. Dominica will be a much better place when she holds elected office. She is definitely a rare treasure. The lady is a ‘uniter’ not a divider, a leader not a follower, gives yeoman service to the people, she does not ride on the aching backs of the poor to live an opulent lifestyle unlike the ambassador. Dominica needs more selfless patriots like Ernie. She’s a model of consistency giving selfless assistance to the community. Vote for prosperity, vote for Ernie.

    You UWP are against everything Government do.Betterment in what?Have you not listened to Isaac Baptiste with a load of BS?You are in this for MONEY.You should have answered the call to serve before retirement.SELFISH.It is too late.You will never win.LENNOX LINTON and EDISON JAMES turned the once MIGHTY MARIGOT into a GHOST TOWN.Laureen will not get together with you.WICKED.A bunch of retired UWP looking for money.

      You are right. UWP is against everything government is doing, namely corruption, nepotism, deceit, theft and dictatorial behaviour. You should be ashamed of yourself for supporting these bandits.

      July 29, 2019

      So why did Laureen switch from UPW to Labor? Why did Joseph Isaac do the same? Lennox linton turned Marigot into a ghost town? Have you ever visited roseau after 7pm on a weeday? or even on some weekends? Marigot has changed a bit, but under the DLP regime. The ignorance from DLP supporters is a reflection of why whe are sinking as a nation. We support nonsense.

    Beautifully said, Teacher if I had any doubts about supporting you, you have just erased the doubts. If Skeritt would think like you, Dominica would be a great country to live.

    Great response my dear teacher Ernie. Eahnee – bar- yoe- love!

    The Hon. Ambassador can only dream of being in your shoes so no need to engage in any BS with Mrs.Selfish/ Greedy. As we speak she is still trying to undermine the “bouncing bonnie” but Cindy or Ashille does not have what it takes to walk in your shoes either. There is a difference between leaders and followers so let them stew in their own sauce. Hold on to that key for the victory is in sight.

    Teacher don’t worry all they care about is their cool out. This is what this dlp has brought the country to. every one just concerned about what they can get

    July 28, 2019

    All YOU like to give but ALL YOU can not take!
    I’ll ask again! Was selling 1 (one) grain of banana to the people after Hurricane Maria showed any love or help to your dear people?

    • fed up
      July 29, 2019

      Was she the only one selling banana that way? you people irk me in the way you think. I am sure she gave away some and not just sell all. Stop sitting on your brain and get up.

    Short, concise, precise and compendious, but to the point! Question is how Lorraine Bannis Roberts has contributed to Dominica in her ambassadorial capacity? Is she a Dominican people ambassador or a Labour Party ambassador? She is a useless ambassador as far as country is concerned!!As far as party is concerned, it is for all Dominicans with eyes and mind to figure out!
    Well put together teacher Ernie.

    This lady, Ernie Lawrence JnoFinn, is a honorable human being. She’s a decent, exemplary lady Extraordinaire. I will like my daughter to walk in her footsteps. Compare the coarse, piggish response of the ill-mannered lady ambassador to Ernie’s most sincere,, genteel and diplomatic reply. This is the difference between candidates and loyal supporters of the UWP and those of the DLP.
    UWP is a issue-driven, people-oriented, gracious , visionary, competent party. The DLP has proven, beyond any shadow of a doubt, with their twenty straight years in government, that the party is comprised of ultra selfish, corrupt, dishonorable, blasphemous, pretentious LIARS and TRAITORS.
    Note: All traitors and turncoats make their moves for selfish reasons. They have no conscience. The only persons they fight for are ME, MYSELF and I. DLP has the three biggest traitors in the history of Dominica – Savarin, Bannis-Roberts and Isaac. A vote for DLP is a vote to reward TREACHERY!

      I could not say more, nor put it better.
      “This lady, Ernie Lawrence Jno Finn, is a honourable human being. She’s a decent, exemplary lady Extraordinaire.
      Well said Ibo. I am from the area and under this corrupted Labour Government and this immature failed Skerrit, our Castle Bruce has deteriorated over the past 20 years, and yet some silly Castle Bruce people will still shout and hail “Is Skerrit we love”, Our Castle Bruce children and families are suffering no jobs etc, but that failed Skerrit can fly off his children and family happily anywhere an still have big largesse to support them. the People of Castle Bruce, Fond Mele, Tranto. Depaix, Good Hope, San Sauveur and Pte. Soufriere have suffered enough for 20 years under Skerrit. wake up people and kick out Skerrit and his useless bunch of Labour failed ministers out of office. We deserve better than that. Skerrit and his failed corrupt Labour must Go. Get Out
      We welcome Hon Linton and his highly professional UWP Team. Yes…

  22. My little take
    July 28, 2019

    Wow! That’s a brilliant invitation. Unfortunately the Loren Bannis Robert will not accept it because from the onset and on every decision of hers showed that she has never been thinking of what is in the best interests of community or country but rather, what is in the best interest of Loren Bannis Robert.

    • Casio

      Like the San Sauver Primary school. the people of San Sauver and Petit Savanne pretested the placement of the school where it is. Bannis vrought SSU and all kind of police to move the people and impose the school on the people of those villages. they protested not because they didnt want a new school, but the location was unfit. Especially as land had already been alocated for it by a previous government. Today that school is rotting away from sea blast. Those fools do what they want without consulting people. then they expect people to sing their praise. Same for that monstrosity they building right on the playing field. i mean why right on the field? no regard for the proposed tenants especially during celebration times. No regard for the users of the field either.
