PM Skerrit says he is “going nowhere anytime soon”

The Prime Minister indicates he has no intentions of resigning

Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, has brushed aside repeated calls for his resignation, telling the audience at a town hall meeting in La Plaine last week that he has no intentions of doing so.

“Let me tell you very clearly that this person called Roosevelt Skerrit, the Prime Minister of Dominica and the leader of the Dominica Labour Party … is going nowhere anytime soon,” he said to applause.

The opposition United Workers Party (UWP) has made repeated calls in recent times for the Prime Minister to resign.

Its latest letter, dated March 6, 2017, the UWP told Skerrit, “In the interest of national salvation, the Parliamentary Opposition again demands you immediate resignation because of the severe crisis of confidence into which our country has been plunged by your actions and associations with international racketeers, money launderers and fugitives from justice who pose continuing threat to global peace and security.”

But the Prime Minister said he will only be removed by those who vote on election day.

“The only people who can take me out are people who will go and vote on election day and vote for the government and Prime Minister of their choice,” he stated.

The Prime Minister noted that based on the commitment and expressions of the majority of Dominicans, whenever elections are called, “Roosevelt Skerrit and the Labour Party shall be back in office.”

    I hope the PM READ THOSE COMMENTS and enjoy it as I do. A few little words short and sweet left them at bashing one another. If people don’t love you they don’t talk about you. NO SKERRIT,NO DOMINICA.15-6 before 2019 it is going be 17-4

    John Lennon, the great beatle of The Fab Four gave us ,many years ago the characteristics of a nowhere man. Here how it goes:
    He’s a real nowhere man
    Sitting in his nowhere land
    Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
    He’s as blind as he can be
    Just sees what he wants to see
    Does’nt have a point of view
    Knows not where he’s going to
    Nowhere man can you see us at all?

    “But the Prime Minister said he will only be removed by those who vote on election day.” No truer words spoken.

    “The only people who can take me out are people who will go and vote on election day and vote for the government and Prime Minister of their choice,” he stated.

    If the guys that are so hungry for power listen to the Prime Minister, then they must change their approach. Stop asking a man who was elected to resign; instead you need to mobilize the voters to make a decision to chose otherwise. With the rhetoric and political theatre, you are not going to get it done. Stop the personal attacks, and tell the people of Dominica how you are going to make Dominica better. My advise show some leadership and stop inciting fear and doom. Maybe start working on a manifesto for the next election. You can’t steal power; it must be given by the people.

      Yes Sir, Gadaffi mobilized his voters as did Hitler, Idi Amin and many other despots, right?Skerrit spent more than $30 million, imported voters and still lost three important seats to a novice that did not have two, cents to rub together. God works in mysterious ways. There is another Beatles song from John Lennon that goes “can’t buy me love”.

    Skerro, We Laborites endorsed your entry as PM, We are the ones going to decide your EXIT.. Those that are calling for you to go did not put you there so they have no moral authority to call for your resignation. Come 2019 more blows on them.

    That reminds me of his friend Muammar Gadaffi, who told the BBC in Feb. of 2011 that he was loved by all his people and that they would die to protect him. He laughed at the suggestion that he should step down and leave Libya. The U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. called him delusional and unfit to lead. (BBC report 28 Feb., 2011). even the support of Roosevelt Skerrit’s regime, to the end, could not save him. The rest is history and a very grim story it is too.

      Look at what happened to Libya after they murdered him. God did not send them to revolt and they are paying for it now worst than ever. Take note of this and keep it in your mind.

    The problem with anybody in this case “going nowhere soon” is that Dominica may also be taken along against it’s will and that is not too cool.

  10. @ comentator #1: “Skerrit you are the servant of the people and not he other way around. When the people are ready they will kick you out of there”.

    @Commentator #2: “and you are a servant of the people, your service is limited, you serve at the mercy, and pleasure of the people

    Where did he say it was not so; It is that influence driving him to speak so boldly–it comes from the people; but the better reason is that–the people are guided by Divine authority.

    What God has planted, no man can uproot. He also said: “No flesh shall GLORY in His presence”–which is the desire of UWP and their followers; but they do not know that all glory belong to God–whoever He has planned to receive it from. The majority of the people of Dominica is in that group, through Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit.

    You people need to give up your foolish determination and expectation, can’t you all see that it is not working, and it never will.

    What crisis of confidence? If there is any, it is caused by Lennox and his supporters. He seems to forget that there are many DLP supporters in Dominica.
    Continuing threat to global peace and security? Come on Lennox! You are foolish. What threat to global peace? Furthermore, what do you care anyway? You are a D/can and reside there.
    Those who reside in Canada, US and Europe, their governments for that matter are not concerned by your fake news, a fabrication of same. I reside in Canada and I am very much at peace here. So are others.
    For whatever reason, some people go to those big countries to hide without being detected. Their interest is not to disturb the peace and security of the country.
    Lennox, stop allowing your imagination to run wild. You and your supporters who especially caused the violence in Roseau are a continuing threat to the peace and security in Dominica. The pot always calls the kettle black. Build D/ca up. Do not break it down.

      The majority of Dominicans do not want the PM to resign. That is what the UWP cannot compute. Not even most UWP want the PM to resign. UWPites know the DLP is better for them and Dominica than their party.

      Suppose the PM and the DLP resign who would you like to see as the Government? We know the UWP is not ready to lead the country. Not only are they not ready, they have no plans as a party. They know it and we know it. If they had confidence in we the people to elect them as our government, they would make sure they do the work require and win Dominicans over so we can vote them in.

      They want to force us to have them as our government. That is not how it is done. They are disrespecting the majority of the people they want to govern and that will not work.

      The majority of Dominicans want the decision to choose whom they want to represent them and the UWP must accept that.

    • Jon Jones
      March 14, 2017

      Those who support the DLP have no idea what dignity is. When a PM can so discredit a nation with his chosen criminal associates and clandestine behaviour, with the support of his followers, then you have to realise that this country is doomed and will face some harsh realities soon.

      Ignorance is bliss and stupidity is celebrated in Dominica. It will be a hard wake up call for some.

    These utterances suggest to me that Skerrit may not even contest the next general election…The opposition parties just have tokeep him under pressure…Remember from January 1st he has been running,hiding,stuttering,cursing,etc…Lets bring more pressure to bear on him.

    • Jon Jones
      March 14, 2017

      Until there is a sustained campaign or demonstration to remove him he will stay put. Now if there were a demonstration that lasted for days, the outside world would take far more notice and it would be very hard for him to stay put without having to resort to some imposition of martial law.
      This situation is currently happening in Romania and we would find far more success if this tactic was adopted. The control of wealth has left any union opposition weak and scared to challenge the Skerritt regime but for their members sake it has to be done. It is starting to reflect in the civil service as they are scared that if they talk the might lose out.
      This isnt democracy anymore – it is a dictatorship.

    Politicians, especially those in these small islands of the Caribbean, have failed the people miserably. They mostly care about enriching themselves, family and their most fanatical supporters. Their accumulation of wealth is not commensurate with their salaries. They engage in all sorts of skullduggery and machinations to win elections. Divide and Rule is their modus operandi. The governing politicians lack creativity. They are incapable of creating opportunities for citizens to lift themselves out of abject poverty. It’s as if they have smoked something to make them ‘High’: high unemployment, high crime rate, high poverty level, high taxes, high under employment, high indebtedness. Why not be magnanimous instead of arrogant, Mr. PM? Life has a way of humbling us.

      As he said, it is not completely his decision; it is his confidence in the people who puts him on that seat. And the majority of Dominicans answers that question with great determination and authority saying: “It is our right and our place to decide”

      We are under God’s Guidance to make that decision–Prime Minister Skerrit knows that. The people are his courage and his strength, by the command of the Divine; no one can overpass this–not even the most brilliant individual in this world; far less for a few disgruntled men in Dominica, who are zealous for power and fame.

        When Dominicans comes to their senses and realize that some flour, rice, sugar and some salt cod fish is not what life is all about they will realize Skerrit petty handouts of food cannot bring any change to their life and the country!

      Take it from me, he is not a God or doing anything comparable to the innocence or naivety of Patrick John. Patrick John never sought to become extremely wealthy at the people’s expense, his sin was a lack of worldliness. Skerro is the polar opposite who has used the time to achieve little other than his personal wealth. 17 years to eradicate pit toilets is nothing to celebrate in 2017. I wouldnt even mention the international airport either

      What would qualify you as a Security Director anyway?

      He must say that…..But we must demand that there SHALL be no election without electoral reform…DOMINICANS REJECTED SKERRIT in 2017..His party only won because of foreign votes…
      In SIX CONSTITUENCIES Mahaut,Castle bruce,Laplaine,Gradfond,St Joseph,Valley…SIX constituencies Labour gang won by a combined total of under 1000 votes….So dont listen to the coward..UWP,DFP,and concerned Dominicans SKERRIT is cornered..Thats the reason for the foolishness that he stutters.

    But the Prime Minister is right that he is not travelling anywhere anytime soon because according to many popular international blog sites, it is alleged that Skerrit might not be able to travel anywhere anytime soon because of the following:
    1. He is afraid that a sealed indictment may be waiting for him in Miami, at Customs and Border Protection and as result, he may be staying out of America upon advice of his counsel that the risk of possible arrest.
    2. Skerrit’s US visa may have been revoked ? In Pursuant to Presidential Proclamation 7750, of January 12, 2004, foreign officials involved in corruption, will have their US visa revoked, and barred from entry. In fact I am now wondering if the real reason why former PM of St. Kitts & Nevis, Mr. Denzel Douglas visited Dominica last week was not to advise Skerrit since he too lost his US visa when he was PM. DNO I am simply asking questions as we continue to wonder what in the world Skerrit meant

  55. March 13, 2017

    What is the opposition recomending? Do they want Skeritt to resign and allow another DLP MP to be appointed PM? Or do they want Skeritt and his government out. And what is this rubish about crisis of confidence? Lennox and the opposition should start telling Dominicans what type of government to expect if Skeritt agrees to their demands to resign. These regular calls by the opposition for Skeritt to resign have become laughable. However one must admire the strategy of trying to destroy the character of Skeritt, kill the snake by cutting the head off.

    If it was another Person at the Helm of PM they would be asked to resign simple as that with the abundance of issueS circulating the office of PM.

    But again it shows that Dominicans have NO CLASS and PRIDE as a Nation.
    Don’t they see that the PM isn’t serious and running their so called beloved Dominica to the gutter…is PM Skerrit a God wasn’t Dominica rule before him and after him….smh

    That’s why Dominica is known Globally as the FOOLS PARADISE!

      San Antonio Texas. All I am asking for is evidence. You are like Kelly Anne Conway and her evidence story. The latest story was that PM visa was revoked and he cannot enter USA. Even now as I write he is in the USA. These are the baseless allegations you all have led by a white JW who all you feeding with magi. Bring the evidence and I am one who will say GO. Until such time HE AINT GOING NOWHERE.

      • Mr./Miss/Madam Classmate; anybody asking for evidence in regards to anything Skerrit is alleged into is a not wise, in otherwise that person asking for evidence and proof is a fool!

        And I will tell you how I came to discover that.

        Please note, I was one who would support Roosevelt with my life. Even when I was cornered: could not mover left, right, I could not walk backwards, nor forward in the position I was in withe a beer in my hand, when an insider in Skerrit government: Note: I said in Skerrit government was convincing me that Skerrit is corrupted, and everything associated with that language, the T word too; the one spells th..f, fill in the blanks.

        Well, be informed that I was asking “where is the evidence.” Not to long after it dawned on me and I saw the evidence. You want to hear about some evidence, even if you do not live in America, if you know what to do you will find in public records where a $2.2 million dollar house is transferred from a certain Dominica…

      • Well, be informed that I was asking “where is the evidence.” Not to long after it dawned on me and I saw the evidence. You want to hear about some evidence, even if you do not live in America, if you know what to do you will find in public records where a $2.2 million dollar house is transferred from a certain Dominica politician name to a company name.; so keep looking for de evidence!

        Nothing is hidden in this country, you buy things in peoples name, or transfer house, and land into people or corporation name the paper, and money trail will come right back to you, you can lie about it for a while but it will eventually fall in your lap, and splash in your face, and it is now in the face of that Dominica polician.

        I doh call no name on DNO eh, if alyou want to read about it I can give alyou an address where one can read about it, or we have a forum where all such issues are dealt with, where we speak the truth, and fear no law suite!

    • And let me support you in everything you wrote in you comment. If we were dealing with the many issues in the country; trying to find solutions, and resolve to the issues which have a direct effect on the people, the issues that keep our country poor, and backward; hence, keeping our people in poverty!

      One could perhaps tolerate the nonsense, and even try to do something to help. Nevertheless, all the major issues we are dealing with without any resolve, are controversial issues revolving around Roosevelt Skerrit. The man is toxic, he is unable to govern, and that is an observation from the beginning of his tenure.

      We do not here much about Hartley the Barbadian these days, but it is people like him who govern Dominica and not Skerrit. I have nothing against Tony Astaphan; however, I’ll say this he is an example of what I observed, as in the case of Hartley.

      • But man eat you really believe I am stupid?

        How many times you read where I said a Lawyer time is his money! Don’t think I do not know that Tony Astaphan time is his money! Had it not been for Tony, Skerrit would be in jail right now. Question, have you ever saw me write a derogatory comment about Tony?

        The reason I do not is because I know where to draw the line between politics, and peoples personal life okay, I know Tony is in this thing for the money, and since Skerrit has deep pocket, he work fro Skerrit, but I do not believe Tony have any actual interest in Dominica politics.

        Tony have a mansion in Florida, when Babylon fall, all he have to do is get on an aircraft and head home to Miami;


        He is a lawyer, if he is smart and capable he can go to enroll in Law School, and if he can pass the bar, he will be in business. If he is smart enough, he can take the FSX, and if he pass it he might not even have to return to…

    • Continue:

      Tony speaks for Roosevelt on every subject matter: Roosevelt is the one who should be defending himself, and set the record straight; but, because of his incompetence he is forced to remain silent; allowing people not voted into office by our people, even foreigners to run the country, destroying it in the process, while he Skerrit is reduced to a puppet, and a diplomatic passport sales man!
