PM Skerrit congratulates Browne

Gaston Browne

Dominica’s Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has congratulated Antigua and Barbuda’s Prime Minister Gaston Browne following his victory at the January 18th general elections.

Browne and his ABLP party won a narrow third consecutive term in office obtaining nine seats in Parliament.

Skerrit, who has been touted as a very close friend of Browne, said in a letter “I extend my best wishes for the success, stability, and progress of the government and people of Antigua and Barbuda and pledge our continued support and friendship.”

Browne also received congratulatory messages from Barbados Prime Minister Mia Motley.

“I eagerly look forward to working with you [Prime Minister Gaston Browne] to build a stronger, more resilient Caribbean,” Motley tweeted.

And, Philip J Pierre, the Prime Minister of St Lucia, said “the people have spoken and entrusted you with leading them for yet another term. I pray for your government’s success, especially during this volatile global climate.”

Congratulatory messages also came from Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, Cuban Foreign Affairs Minister Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, Belizean Foreign Affairs Minister Eamon Courtenay, and Leader of the Opposition in Jamaica Mark Golding.

    ” Roosevelt Skerrit has congratulated Antigua and Barbuda’s Prime Minister Gaston Brown.”

    Well, not surprising, because they are practically one of the same where it pertains to corruption; except Gaston graduate university, with earn degrees; Roosevelt earned zero degrees. Gaston sells the Choice land in Antigua and Barbuda to Chines so do Roosevelt in Dominica, and to those who do not believe me; in reference to Dominica; I draw to your attention:
    In Wesley, Roosevelt has taken peoples land and houses away claiming that he is going to use the land to build International Airport, nevertheless; I can at least name someone who’s house was taken away for such claimed purpose, which is now occupied by a Chines family!
    Gaston is destined to win in Antigua for years to come due to the amount of stupid Dominican labor supporters of Roosevelt residing in Antigua.
    Any dog can name themselves Labor party, all dumb Dominicans will vote for the dog you know!

    I think I have something to say; I think I need to draw to the attention of our ignorant people who believe the name labor party is an omen of prosperity, whereas the name Labor are found only two places no earth as far as I am aware, in Australia, and England; and bares no association, and they are not associated with Labor in Dominica, or any of the islands extending congratulation to the crook Gaston Brown.
    Here is a brief: British political party whose historic links with trade unions have led to promote an active role for the state in the creation of economic prosperity and in the provision of social service. In opposition to the conservative party, it has been the major democratic socialists party in Britain since the early 20th century.
    Old man Bird of Antigua brought the name Labor party to the Caribbean, dressed his native people in red.
    Red is the mark of communism, in Russia, and China and many totalism states.
    Note: no congratulation came from Australia or England.

    Where was the Prime Sinister of Dominica on the Sunday before elections in Antigua. Why did Gaston Brownie invite Mr. Lovell for a debate that Sunday? Skerrit and Brown are so deep in their evils deeds it’s just unbelievable. It will come to an end Skerrit. It must, I repeat Must end. As the old saying goes. “One day, one day conquer day.” You really and truly believe the might of Satan will live forever and protect you but remember there is an ALMIGHTY might. I hope when Satan’s might have all ended those who knew you will not cry, “ala, ala poor petite”.

    In patrol my grand father would say “Mem bet mem pwell”, meaning two of a kind. Where one goes there goes the other. If one makes his bed in hell expect the other to follow. When one is given a first class trip to the US in a famous suit expect the other to follow shortly thereafter

    But DNO what would you expect from two birds with same feather? Don’t you expect them to flock together? Better yet for the Christian community, does Satan and his demons ever disagree? Man they are one

    Meme bette, meme pwel. Two peas in a pod.

    I was watching a Youtube video by a guy from Bagatelle called Siri Exposing. Skerrit went to the Delice area and some people were complaining about the amount of time that has passes since Hurricane Maria and the bridge connecting Delice to Petite Savanne (I think) washed away and up to this day it has not been replaced.

    Skerrit was upset because he thought it was unfair to blame him because in his mind “it did not happen that long ago” as if to say the people from that area are impatient and ungrateful.

    This guy takes credit for everything that makes him look good, but deflects the blame when he is slacking. This is the man who micro-manages everything the government does.

    The buck stops with you pal.

    The two most corrupt political organisations in the english speaking Caribbean.
    The DLP led by a pathological LIAR Skerrit, and the Antigua Labour Party.

    This is not bona fide news. Both Browne Paperbag and Hard Head Roosevelt are cut from the same coarse paper.

    Both these twin crooks are uncouth, unthinking, unethical, unscrupulous, undesirable and unenlightened and more.

    For these two to pilot their countries through these times of turbulent economic storms is insanity. The outcome can only be disastrous for the passengers.

      I take it that you wanted the Supreme Leader of Dominica to congratulate you instead. That will never happen, not on this earth.

    An Axis of Labour party governments is currently in place in the region. Coincidence or years in the making? Is the Caribbean heading down a socialist path?

    – Barbados – Barbados Labour Party (BLP)
    – St Vincent & Grenadines – Unity Labour Party (ULP)
    – St Lucia – St Lucia Labour Party (SLP)
    – Commonwealth of Dominica – Dominica Labour Party (DLP)
    – Antigua & Barbuda – Antigua & Barbuda Labour Party (ABLP)
    – St Kitts & Nevis – Saint Kitts & Nevis Labour Party (SKNLP)

    – Jamaica – Jamaica Labour Party (Party color – Green; Ideology MAY be different to the Eastern Caribbean Labour parties/governments)
    – Trinidad & Tobago – People’s National Movement (Party colour – Red)

    Y’all paying close attention to whats going on or y’all too busy or too fascinatingly distracted by sewo & the vulgarization of society or day & night mindless addicted scrolling through meaningless social media content to discover the truth which is hidden in plain sight?
