PM Skerrit congratulates new Barbados Prime Minister

PM Skerrit, along with St. Lucia’s Chastenet and Grenada’s Mitchell share a laugh with Mottley

Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit has congratulated the new Prime Minister of Barbados, Mia Mottley, on her historic win in her country’s general election.

Last Thursday, the Barbados Labour Party, led by Mottley won a landslide victory in the election capturing all 30 seats in the country’s parliament.

“I had the great pleasure of being the first foreign leader to touch down in Barbados and call on their newly elected Prime Minister, Mia Amor Mottley,” the Prime Minister said on his Facebook page.

He said while in transit in Barbados on Sunday afternoon he had lunch with Mottley and was later joined by Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves, Prime Minister Dr. the Rt Hon. Keith Mitchell and Prime Minister Allen Chastanet of St Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada and St. Lucia respectively.

“We collectively congratulated Prime Minister Mottley and pledged our full cooperation and support in her efforts to turn around the economic fortunes of that country,” he stated.

    Dominicans please be aware that the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) is not a friend of the Barbados Labour Party (BLP).

    The Dominica Labour Party (DLP) is and continues to be a friend of the Barbados Democratic Labour Party (DLP), unless Mr Skerrit is abandoning his friendship with the Barbados DLP because they got such a weeping so Mr Skerrit trying the rub off the BLP’s victory on him. :lol: :lol: :lol: for Skerrit the deceiver

    Keep smiling PM. Who wants to be angry and bitter inside like Lennox, let them stay so. They are traitors looking to full their pocket and not help develop Dominica. When the election call, the Dominican people going to show the Workers Party that they will never see the corridor of power in Dominica… because they are traitors. You know it in your heart that Workers will not stand a chance to be in power in Dominica. On this day, mark my words. You cannot go out there and try hard to keep down your country because you’re filled with hatred against one man. TRAITORS!

      You have a bunch f thieves who has killed our economy, with questionable deeds and deals of money laundering…the Bin Bobol and Fertilizer Bobol investigation and arrests of Labour government people still outstanding and in waiting and you want to worry about how UWP under Hon. Linton and trustworthy team are going to run Domininca? Well UWP Team will not be corrupt, there will be no thievery because they cannot compete with corrupt PM and his corrupt Labour government band of bandits who has fleeced our economy.

      Skerrit has failed he must Go. Labour corrupt has failed and they must go…and thosee blind silly loyalists must step aside and repent and all you must repent.

    “We collectively congratulated Prime Minister Motley and pledged our full cooperation and support in her efforts to turn around the economic fortunes of that country,” he stated.
    Skerrit failed us not able over the past 18 years to turn the economy of Domininca around. Skerrit, You are immature in your politics and while Barbados has prospered due to honesty and accountability in office you have failed us with you corrupt and devious boyish behavior in Office. Barbados will continue to move on, while Dominica is ailing and has collapsed under your poor and very weak visionless corrupt Labour Government.
    I honestly believe that Skerrit is suffering from some political malaise. He must go clean his dirty corrupt political backyard before he goes lecturing nonsense BS to a “Premier highly recognised Woman” of the Caribbean, now has earned her Position with her credible team to win the trust and confidence of her people of Barbados. You, Skerrit does not belong to this honourable group

    The Biggest Joke is on Dominicans that keep Mediocrity and Corruption so vibrant in the Nature Isle…Skerrit plays his part as a real cunning menace to Democracy in Dominica, but what about you all? What about the rest of Dominicans? How you feeling?
    Roads Bad, No Manufacturing, Agriculture is a joke, Construction jobs going to foreigners…etc. etc…

      There is no jealousy, there is honesty in public office. The publics` affairs belongs to all of us and must not be abused. Go address Skerrit on these matters….he is the so called Finance Minister. In Barbados your rarely here of these bobol financial matters and thievery taking place….why? because they are a mature people, well disciplined and accountable. If not the law will get at them, because the Barbadian people are open and want good government in office. In Domininca sadly Skerrites, we worship and promote. corruption, devious actions and lack of development.
      Skerrit must go

    Skerrit is a humongous, shameless hypocrite. After casting aspersions on all the opposition parties in the Caribbean, no exception, he still musters the courage to dine and laugh with Mia Amor. This is blatant hypocrisy! This action clearly demonstrates the diabolical nature of this man. For his rude, uncouth and ill-thought-out remarks about fellow Caribbean leaders and potential leaders who he fully well knows that he will have to interact with one day, Skerrit should have been debarred from the signing-in ceremony and the victory celebrations. An astute leader would have just congratulated the Antigua and Grenadian prime ministers without passing crude and unprovoked remarks about every opposition politician in the region. When will this man ever learn?

      The UWP is strong and a threat to Skerrit and his corrupt Labour government. The UWP has a leader who is exceptionally honourable and in waiting to be Prime Minister of our Domininca to serve all of the people of Domininca, without exception but with honour, dignity, accountability and respect to the office of Prime Minister. It is proven that this failed Labour Government has betrayed us in office with a very weak and failed leader.
      On the other hand, the UWP is the government in waiting with a team of distinguished and honourable people waiting and prepared to serve us n the laws and principles of good governance and trust.

      Long live UWP

      Nothing to do with “Like”, it is to do with failure, immaturity, highly practiced Bobol, account for the misuse of our states money, lack of development etc etc……….
      We don`t have to waste about Liking or not liking Skerrit. He is a failed politician and a faked PM leader. We like and Love Domininca and we need a very mature, experienced, loyal no nonsense person to lead our country out of this poverty, corruption, deception and thievery. Skerrit must Go, Just Go. You have failed us

        LOL..LOL…LOL. Mia…LOL at this political clown. Enjoy the laugh. You are a very clean and trustworthy, academic and successful political. YO have earned it,, you worked hard. No money sent by courier to buy loyalty and votes. Barbados` government is a very loyal and stable structure that people respect and conduct themselves accordingly.

        The joke is on the political clown. Skerrit must Go

      Mia is in a lol…lol…lol….lol…at Skerrit…cant you see….lol at Skerrit,,,,,,,political clown…a failure. She know she did nt steal and corrupt the election. It was fair and right. Skerrit cannot get into that level of academic discuss, he is a failure and a waste of time.
      Mia has work to do towards the continued development of Barbados. She knows that Skerrit is struggling and has reduced Domininca to failed state.
