PM Skerrit sends strong warning to DLP supporters

Prime minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, has warned supporters of the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) that the blood of Dominica will be on their hands if they do not vote for their party or refrain from voting all together.

Speaking at a rally in Wesley on Tuesday evening, Skerrit said Labourites who do not vote for the DLP are in essence in conspiracy with the United Workers Party (UWP).

“If you do not go out and vote then you are conspiring with the UWP to change the government,” he said. “If you choose not to go out and vote then you are indirectly voting for Lennox Linton to become the prime minister of Dominica. I say tonight that the blood of Dominica would be on your hands, all those who triggered the demise of this beautiful country of ours.”

The prime minister was probably referring to certain segments of the DLP in Wesley who had expressed disatisfaction over the choice of Athenia Benjamin to replace outgoing MP, Gloria Shillingford.

There has been some discontent in the selection of Benjamin

The move has been described as a form of ‘dictatorship,’ a ‘disappointment’ and an ‘injustice’ by chairman of the DLP Wesley Constituency Association, Cleaveland Dodds.

He had promised to “deliberately mash up” everything if Benjamin, who lived in Canada for many years, was confirmed as candidate for the general election.

But the prime minister told supporters that every single vote makes a difference.

“Of course your vote will no doubt make a difference,” he said. “You can ask Lorreen Bannis-Roberts of Castle Bruce, you can ask Petter Saint Jean of La Plaine, every single vote matters and counts in this general elections, every seat matters for the DLP. The ruling party in St Vincent won the last elections by one seat, the ruling party in Barbados won the last elections when the very last seat was declared. Your vote, my dear brothers and sisters, comrades, Labourites, your vote matters because it can decide who wins the Wesley seat and who wins the government of Dominica.”

He said the DLP is united in its resolve to retain the Wesley seat.

“Speaking from this podium tonight were both the outgoing and the incoming parliamentary representative for Wesley,” Skerrit said. “They both understand the critical importance of the Labour Party retaining that seat and the Labour Party retaining the government of Dominica, they both want Labour to win and I daresay this evening they both want Roosevelt Skerrit to return as the prime minister of Dominica.”

General election will be held in Dominica on December 8.

In the Wesley constituency Benjamin will be going against the UWP’s Ezekiel Bazil.

    Roosevelt Skeritt sees an end to his Autocracy in Dominica and is scared of defeat.
    He understands that a loss at the poles will expose 15 plus years of his malfeasance!
    Labour cannot afford to lose and that desperation has intensified lately.

    Dominica deserves better.

    i am thinking about – the two type slaves : the house slaves and the field slaves. when the field slaves told the house slaves to runaway from the cruelty of Massa – his main concern was for Massa’s welfare not himself./herself. Labourites are like house slave. They know what their Massa is doing is wrong yet they are faithful to him and not to themslvees and their children and future

    It has become increasingly apparent the prime minister is losing his mind.the DLP cried foul and corruption 15 yrs ago, together withe DFP they ousted the UWP.not a single member of the UWP were ever prosecuted in 15 yrs for thier allege crimes.In democracy there is the need of an option, people of Dominica now is the time to chose, business as usual or change of direction.

    Mr Skerrit the constituency branch brought forward their choice of candidate,and you ignore us and insist on giving us an uneducated candidate who live more than half her life in canada,she was never our choice it was yours so come and vote for her,i for sure will not be voting,so you can cry,you can bark i will not vote. you wrong to go in deal with Athenia on the backs of Wesley people,so the blood of the Wesley people will be on your hands.

    The blood of Dominica will be on their hands? Well clearly if people can’t read between these lines then we need to educate our nation further. Skerrit recently received an award/honorary mention from a certain order of priests and less than 2 weeks after he casts a remark like this? Well we need not wonder what you, your family and close circle do to ensure that you stay in office. The blood of Dominica shall be and already is on your hands Skerrit. You are insinuating something that even the lay person can understand. Their definitely is something strange in your method!

    Mr. Blaze, come again; BSc abbreviates bachelor of science nevertheless, there are many different sciences, so if you are for real; tell me which of the sciences your BSc represents.

    I have a bachelor of science (BS) in Electronic Engineering, I also boast a bachelor of science (BS) in the field of Electrical Engineering, compounded with an Associate of science (AS) in the field electronics; and also an Associate of arts (AA) in the liberal arts.

    Here I have identified my area of profession. I am an Electrical Engineer by profession. I am also an Electronic Engineer by Profession, two different profession. My associate in science in electronics is a two year degree, used as a prerequisite which allowed me to pursue my engineering degrees.

    My Associate in Arts, in the Liberal Arts is related to other educational classes. I may also teach you that a degree in the Liberal Arts prepares the student to enter into any field, or deviate into other fields of science. So watch it boy, unless you can tell me what specific field your BSc represents, you are not telling me anything; and that renders you a fake in my book a fake!

    “(T)he blood of Dominica would be on your hands, all those who triggered the demise of this beautiful country of ours.” … 8-O

    Wow, and I thought American politicians were hyperbolic! We just had an election here whose outcome was…er, less than desirable, but the sky hasn’t fallen yet–and probably won’t anytime soon, despite the dire warnings coming from the opposition party. So take heart, Mr. Skerrit. Even if the UWP sweeps the upcoming elections, I seriously doubt Dominica is going to collapse into the Caribbean. Politics is important, yes, but as long as the country remains democratic, it’ll always have a chance to correct any mistakes made during the last election. :)

    Roosevelt Skerritt has lost his ever loving mind!!

  20. November 12, 2014

    When a sitting Prime Minister says that ANY voter who chooses not to vote is “conspiring” with the opposing party and ANY vote against him would ultimately leave the Blood of the Country on the hands of the voters, he has definitely sunk his own ship!!!!
    Right now I am quite sure that there are thousands of Laborites re-examining their commitment to Roosevelt Skerrit and the now defunct Labor Party. A Prime Minister with power and control of millions of dollars simply implying the possibility of importing weapons and retaining power by force is enough to send us ALL running to the hills. This statement by all means is Mr. Skerrit’s demise. He stands before ALL of you, eyes wide open, with the proverbial foot in his mouth.
    I am quite sure he is somewhere now pondering how could he have so foolishly shot himself in the foot.

    November 12, 2014

    November 12, 2014

    vote for de illuminati and see how dominica blood will run

    November 12, 2014

    Skerrit knows he has a good chance of being voted out. His own poll, recently revealed, shows this. According to the CADRES polls, conducted for the DLP, Labour has 43 % of the popular vote, UWP 30 % and 27 % are either undecided or was not willing to reveal their preferences. The last number is significant. It means that the 27 % can swing the election result either in favour of Labour or UWP. This situation is far from the confident and propitious position he was in 2009.

    He knows the current situation looks dicey for him so he is seeking to frighten doubtful Labourites and independent, undecided voters to elect him and the DLP by invoking scenes of blood in the streets if the UWP is elected to form the next government. This is unbecoming of a leader of a party and of someone who is the Prime Minister. The masses should reject this scaremongering in a decisive and concrete way.

    • The Facts
      November 13, 2014

      You are not smart. Broaden your mind and horizon. All politicians ask constituents to vote for them. It is nothing unusual.
      Toronto recently had a Municipal Election. The candidates telephoned homes asking to vote for them. If there was no response, they left messages.
      This occurs for all three Elections, Federal, Provincial and Municipal, whenever they take place. Earlier this year we had a Provincial Election. Next year we will have a Federal Election. We are bracing ourselves for that one.
      There were calls to participate in a meeting or listen-in to a meeting which was taking place; emails were sent to attend a fundraising dinner where of course the candidates would pitch in and ask for votes on that day; flyers were placed at doors and in mail boxes; candidates and their volunteers campaigned door to door. We did not have much peace at that time as we were bombarded with calls daily, even until approximately 9:30 pm.
      What is wrong with the PM asking for votes and/or informing the people to vote for the Party, for him? This occurs at election time. We are accustomed to it. Therefore, no need to criticize. Simply get accustomed to it. You have much to learn.

BUT red supporters you don’t care, right? Cause you red red ready! [the most idiotic but very catchy slogan- kudos to whoever came up with that] I’m going to guess that if the outgoing PM were to ask you to give up your first born you’d do it in a heartbeat because clearly he has fooled you into believing that our current state of affairs is just peachy.

    It’s not the blood of Dominica in the hand of the voters but Dominica’s future. Every voter should be clear that a huge responsibility lies in their hands this time. If they choose to give their vote to Skerrit again, they need to be clear in their heads that they are voting for dictatorship. I urge every Dominican to think twice, if you vote for the DLP again it will probably the last time you’ll see free elections in Dominica. For me the choice is very clear this time, dictatorship under Labour or freedom under the UWP. I hope and trust we all will do the right thing for Dominica, for us and most importantly for our children.

    Are we to interpret Skerrit’s statement to mean that if Labour looses Wesley, there will be bloodshed in Dominica? And who will cause this bloodshed?

    I consider this a most irresponsible statement, more like the ravings of a lunatic or one under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. Or, is there some scheme to do just that by the DLP if they lose the election?

    A vast majority of those commenting on DNO are part of the diaspora community and as such, your opinion ideally does not count. With that said, the PM’s language can appear condescending and that of a tryant. At the end of the day, he is desperately trying to secure votes for the upcoming election and of course his words may get ‘the better of him’. I do not condone them in any form, I am many times disappointed with his choices of expression and he, being an educated leader should know better. I do believe that we can do better than having the DLP as our elected government in Dominica, however this ‘better’ i refer to is most certainly not the UWP. I commend Linton for his uproars and bringing to light that which we already know but he and his team most certainly is not ready to govern Dominica. So, when it comes down to it, i most certainly can guarantee that the DLP will be selected and they will win the election. Not because they are the best for Dominica but they are ideally the best option we have available at this time.

        There are without a doubt some competent candidates on the UWP Team. However, after having done a comparison of both parties, my assessment takes the DLP ahead. I recall very clearly the UWP days and I also note all that the DLP have accomplished in their terms as government. I encourage you to clear all the ongoing hype right now and conduct your own assessment. We may all differ at the end of the day but it is our constitutional right. Peace

    For a guy who supposedly had been an English major he certainly does not have a command of the language as one would expect from an English major.
    I am sure that Roosevelt did not mean to suggest actual nlood. However in this silly season nonsupporters will go thee extreme distance with supposedly a miss step.
    I would prefer not suggest that he Skerrit meant violence.
    I don’t blame anybody who wish to suggest that Roosevelt is hinting violence.
    Whatever the PM meant his statement was unfortunate and it here and then that the Religious people guys like Peter Augustin ,the priest Thomas,Randy Rodney etc.
    I am also intrigued that Skerrit did not use the words like unemployment, poverty or corruption instead of “blood on your hands”

    In political science the art of campaigning is to entice people to vote for you, by motivating the masses through education and empowerment. Is that the type of motivation my people need to vote Labour party? Motivation by fear!
    The freedom of choice of the people, and freedom of association to a political party should not be a prime focus of the pm on a political platform. Use the platform to tell the Dominican people why we should give you another five years in office.

    What kind if rhetoric is that? Isn’t voting in election a constitutional right? Why is going to the polls and making an X on issues a conspiracy? For the last year the UWP team has been asking legitimate questions on issues that should be of concern to everyone. The DLP response has not been a defense of their 14 years of achievements, but on non issues and go garbage.
    Some of you may be trying to use Linton background of not going to university to compare him to PM who has a degree in psychology. Here is a man who is university educated whos only ambition is to concentrate power around him as long as possible, and rants incoherently whenever he gets a chance. He lies and changes his mind on a dime. On the other hand we have an opposition leader who believes in a shared responsibility and term limits for leaders to ensure Dominicans get an opportunity to serve.
    pm sounds like something crazy is going to happen if he looses and is ready to spill some blood. I would like to find out what he means.

  76. the Cabal 'fraid
    November 12, 2014

    It is Labourites and all right-thinking Dominicans, who will send a string warning to Skerritt. Because the Cabal have impoverished the people, especially in the rural ares.

    Blood!! Sacrifices !! mind control !!! Zombies !!!!
    illuminati !!!! Secret Order !!!!! CORRUPTION. The Cabal fear losing the elections. Too much is at stake. Plis en plis se plis. Not enough money have been pillaged. Not enough abuse of our young women. More millions to be made on the backs of poor Dominicans. Labourites are feeling it. The standard of living of Dominicans have declined considerably, under Skerritt’s DLP cabal, posing as Govt.

    Imagine Skerritt actually begging now for votes from those same people he neglected for 14 Years? Works of corruption will never set you free my people. But watch out Dominicans. we are fighting not only a corrupt bunch engaged in all sorts of corrupt acts, but a system, with several players, both in the private and public sectors. They arev willing to see the country go down the drain for their own selfish interest…….

    “Big Bang’, yet another example of the corruption,. money-laundering, illegal acts that are allowed to infiltrate the heart and soul of our dear people.

    The cabal cannot refute several charges of corrupt acts they have done. Dominicans stop experimenting with dictatorship rule. The corruption of dictators of Haiti, Papa and Baby Doc should be fresh in our minds. Stop Corruption now or be damned.

  79. Its my damn business
    November 12, 2014

    This message from the mouth of Skerrit reminds me of a young lady that is being abused by a man she loves but instead of marrying her he keeps jumping all over until the you lady said enough is enough, and threatens to leave him. But instead of showing her some love that wicked man tells her that if she leaves him no man will want her and she will be a failure. But the young lady was wise enough to run for her life only to find that a year later she found a man that loved her and got married to her and is enjoying the best days of her life. Skerrit must have known something about instilling FEAR.

    “If you do not go out and vote then you are conspiring with the UWP to change the government,” he said. “If you choose not to go out and vote then you are indirectly voting for Lennox Linton to become the prime minister of Dominica. I say tonight that the blood of Dominica would be on your hands, all those who triggered the demise of this beautiful country of ours.”- Hon Roosevelt Skerrit PM of Dominica
    So let me get this straight, is this man insinuating that voters should only listen to him and him alone? That he is the only one in all of Dominica capable of leading the country? That voters must not think, (why allu thinking for? I will think for allu) but just vote for him, because he is the dear supreme and loving leader who will freely give sewo and milk and honey to all who pledge allegiance to him? Dictator tactics.
    To suggest that the blood of Dominica will be on the hands of those who don’t vote to elect him back into office is just plain malicious, and treacherous. A statement meant to place fear in the hearts of the people. This man needs to know that Dominicans are and have always been very intelligent and free thinking people…We have a dictator in the making; now what are we gonna do?

  81. Wise One
    November 12, 2014

    The words of a True Dictator who will resort to anything to remain in power. If bribery, lies, deception and propaganda will not work then incite social unrest to declare an indefinite state of emergency.

    There will be a lot more said over the next 26 days. If Dominicans do not take heed they will only have themselves to blame when the country is destroyed by Skerrit and his communist regime.

    After 14 years in power there should be no excuse for a government to not have done what it wanted to do. Going through the 2005 and 2009 manifestos you see pages and pages of broken promises and blatant lies.

    It is time to save our country from being the next communist nation in the World. VOTE SKERRIT AND HIS COMMUNIST REGIME OUT OR YOU WILL BE SORRY.

    November 12, 2014

    Skerrit, this statement of yours just gave me another reason why I should vote you out. Last night you had a good opportunity to tell the people of Wesley and Woodfordhill why you rejected a well educated and qualified Gloria Shillingford, who taught most of them, and replaced her with someone who did not even attend high school, and who spent more than half of her life in Canada; you failed to convince them and failed to give them a reason why they should believe your lies again and instead you preached fear to them. But you know, when politicians like yourself know they have failed the people to the point that they cannot be trusted again, and they know they do not have a vision and message to encourage the people to try them again, then they are forced to try the fear tactics. But that too will fail!

      If u have a BSc in education and you cannote see the reason for voting out DLP is for the following:
      1) closing the Marigot Hospital – main Hospital in the North east.
      2) All feeder roads in Wesley and Marigot close and no donkey want to walk on them
      3)Wesley has become one of the poorest community in the Northeast compare to what it was in the 90’s pre DLP.

      Then this is just a few, if your BSc in education does not allow you to analyse the poverty in the country then you should take that Bsc back to the Republic of Morroco. It means u did not learn crap!!

      Boy Blaze, Mr. Fake, I told you before, if Skerrit wins this election, you are one of the first he will mount on your back and ride you like a donkey; and he will use a Bull-pestle to whip your butt,when you begin to crawl under his weight.

      You called me Francisco Telesot, haven’t you heard I could care less what you or anybody call me, you can even call me dog, or pig, if you wish that will not touch a single vein in me.

      Call me anything you wish, I know my name is Francisco Etienne-Dods Telemaque okay, and you can’t change that. You fourge somebody yellow picture and post it on DNO, believing that you are a white boy. You are only fooling yourself fool, you have no name you have no country, that makes you a nobody!


      I did not go to college and university, and fail to graduate, and return to Dominica throwing up a graduation hat in the air without a tassel on it with some old gown in hand perhaps Malzaire gave that old bit of trash to him, he talking trash to people abut he is alumna. When one enters college or university, for the first year they are noted as a Freshman, then go through the ranks becoming sophomore in their second year, then they become a senior. One alumna; is a girl or woman who has attended, or has graduated from a particular school, or college. or university.

      Alumnus, also means one who has attended or has graduated from a particular school, or college, or university. So, he need to tell us to which of the two categories he belong! In any event, we know he attended two university’s in the Southern United States, he did not graduate from any of them (we doh know what man did with the time he spent in New York eh). Think about that; as for you the mentality you display on DNO is proof that you are a dunce:


      You are an idiot; the kind we used to harassed by calling them dunce cap, in Wesley when I attended elementary school. You and the man who paid you to come on DNO to talk crap about you are going to vote so that UWP cannot win might run and jump over a cliff on the 9th of December. Do not worry about my degrees, without them I probably would be in Dominica at Skerrit feet crawling on my belly like a snake waiting for him to disgorge the over flow from his fat belly to eat it in order for me to survive. Remember I stated my academic achievements, and ask you to do the same; it appears you went and hide under Skerrit’s bed, that is why you cannot tell me what qualification you have. In any event if you are a nobody, that means you are not in existence! You see what you get when you tangle with me.

    Skerrit, is Finally admitting that he has failed laborites and Dominicans and therefore he has to try the scare tactics to see if some will not be foolish enough to vote for him not because he deserves there vote (truly he sure does not deserve their vote), but because they are scared of not voting for him. What blood is he talking about? Is Dominica his and his alone? Is he a better human being than Linton? Is he more patriotic than Mr. Linton? The last time I checked Mr. Linton NEVER applied for any foreign citizenship. Mr. Linton loves Dominica and wants to make Dominica a better place to live and enjoy life. Skerrit on the other hand applied for and received FRENCH citizenship as recent as 2003, while a minister of government, and only cancelled it in 2010. If that was not bad enough, he flew his wife to the USA to give birth to their first son. Think of that friends! Skerrit does not care about Dominica; his only concerned is to get what he can from us while he continues to create an atmosphere of failure for the majority of us.

    “Prime minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, has warned supporters of the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) that the blood of Dominica will be on their hands if they do not vote for their party or refrain from”(Roosevelt Skerrit).

    Right here the arrogance of Roosevelt has protruded from his heart; he warned supporters that the blood of Dominica; and in general the people of Wesley that blood will be on their hands if they do not vote for him. That is his way of intimidating and forcing his wish on the people, Skerrit, Wesley people are not dumb as you believe; three times bitten, one time shy; you have screwed yourself by not doing anything for the people of Wesley.

    The man has gone made such spoken words are the words of a very desperate person. Right here he is blaming the people for his incompetents, he is warning a suffering people to return him to power, so that he can live like a king over them. Sorry, my mistake: he has long elevated himself to the status greater than a king, and dictator, now that he has made himself a god over the people. The blood which he talks about is already on his hands, people are bleeding inside. Some have developed ulcerative stomach; caused by hunger and stress. Has anyone taken the time to inform Skerrit about bleeding ulcers, that’s what some people developed when they are starved, by not eating regularly.

    Who cause the economy of the country to deteriorate to where it is at this point? When the people do not have earning power, there cannot have any spending power, and if one does not have the resources to feed themselves they suffer and bleed in silent. Who’s fault is that? I say Roosevelt Skerrit, as head of the country has caused many of our people to be living with bleeding ulcers, therefore the blood which runs within their stomach is on his ( Skerrit’s hands).

    I would like to introduce Skerrit to a term I know he has not heard before, and even if he is an none graduate English major, he would not know the definition, so I will give it to him also. the word is “autoclasis” that is a scientific and medical term, which means the destruction of a part by influences within itself. Men most of the time becomes their worst enemy, and so they self-destruct. Skerrit has self-destruct, when we lie, and make promises and use the promise as a bate, to tag people along, every time our wicked ways returns to haunt us; that is Skerrit’s dilemma at the moment. Now in regards to Athenia, the problem in Wesley is not so much Athenia, the problem is Skerrit. The people of Wesley are sick and tired of Skerrit, because of the way he used Gloria, and neglected the village. Athenia, you are not so much the problem. Even under normal circumstance, all the people of Wesley would not vote for you. And listen looking at your picture here: and do take it as in insult; I know how our family are thin skin; but looking at your picture; you are not the same as the last time I saw while vacation with you in your house in Canada. You have aged twenty years. I showed Rendy your photograph, she did not recognized you until she read the whole (ting) thing and saw your full name.

    I am going to say to you today again, it is not too late for you to walk away from Skerrit and his crap. He is going to do, to you the same as he has done to our cousin Gloria and our village if you win; he will use you worst than he used Gloria, okay; you can get angry at me if you wish, but you will remember I told you so!

        You need to shut your mouth, or talk to yourself, an idiot only understands what originate in their own mind. Does Gloria look upset what?

        Just because she is not shedding tears in public does not mean she is happy. If you were not shallow you may have remembered Gloria said a long time ago she would be a one term minister, she said that when she recognized that Skerrit was using her; rendering her powerless to do anything in the village.

        You see why people such as that idiot are the ones supporting Skerrit!

        Judging from the way that person writes you should have no difficulties figuring out the person is an uneducated idiot. If that person attended kindergarten perhaps they would have learnt that one way to measure an angle is to use a unit that we call degree.

        There are three hundred-sixty degrees in a complete circle. In that circle there should be four quadrants: on the left there are four right angels in the circle. If we divide 360 by four (360/4) we find that each right angle must measure ninety (90) degrees.

        Mathematically we obtained 30 degrees; 60 degrees, 120 degrees, and 180 degrees. Hence, 180 degrees X 2 = 360 degrees. Now in algebra we are familiar with the Y, X horizontal Vertical lines. If we draw a complete circle touching the four points on the vertical, and the horizontal lines.

        In other words if we draw a cross at the top of the cross that would be 90 degrees straight down would be 270 degrees to the left on the line we should have 180 degrees, and to the right we arrive at 0 degrees.So if we commence from the 90 degrees going in a counter clockwise direction; between 90, and 270 degrees we should have 120, 150. 180, 210, and 240 degrees. If we go in a clockwise direction from 90 degrees to 270 degrees, between 90 and 270 degrees we should find: 60, 30 0, 330, and 300 degrees.

        Now, people who have never done upper level math may not have any concept of what I’ve done here. To some people the following formulas will mean something:

        R= Z cos angle
        XL = Z sin angle

        Maybe if the person has the capacity to comprehend they might get a clue of what this is all about, as I said having a smart phone, or computer cannot make anybody smart because where it pertains to a computer, or smart phone: If one inserts garbage into it the output will be garbage! Garbage in Garbage Out.

    Is there more in this warning than meets the eye? Is Roosevelt Skerrit perhaps suggesting that in the event Lennox Linton and his team win the election the labour party will not accept the result lying down and that there may be violence? A coup perhaps.? This is very dangerous stuff. Mr. Skerrit has just been honoured with a knighthood from an order that has vowed to protect the catholic faith. I don’t know that church to promote violence and I would suggest Mr. Skerrit goes to see his Bishop for counseling. Surely, we want to keep the peace in our country, regardless who wins or loses.

    But didn’t skerrit and timothy say that they were winning 20 seats? So why this comments and I quote: “You can ask Lorreen Bannis-Roberts of Castle Bruce, you can ask Petter Saint Jean of La Plaine, every single vote matters and counts in this general elections, every seat matters for the DLP. The ruling party in St Vincent won the last elections by one seat, the ruling party in Barbados won the last elections when the very last seat was declared. Your vote, my dear brothers and sisters, comrades, Labourites, your vote matters because it can decide who wins the Wesley seat and who wins the government of Dominica.” Very interesting comments indeed. But didn’t skerrit and timothy say that they were winning 20 seats?

    • November 12, 2014

      Skerrit is saying ask Petter st.Jean,because he know Ron Won the La.Plaine seat the last election,he was decleared the winner,then they turned and say he win by one vote.

    If you do not go out and vote then you are conspiring with the UWP to change the government,” he said. “If you choose not to go out and vote then you are indirectly voting for Lennox Linton to become the prime minister of Dominica.

    She mention that she was the pro of madam wob dwyiet canada inc, as organization that sent the CDOA a cease and desist letter on December 23, 2013 to stop host a madam wob dwyiet show as they have trade mark the name Madam Wob Dwyiet name, the matter is now before the court. there is so much more i would say but if i did DNO would not post my comment.

    This man PM Roosevelt Skerrit is a dictator. that is why Dominica is so close to Venezuela because the former president was a dictator and Mr. skerrit’s role model. if this prime minister has already predicted a landslide victory why is calling people who have the right to vote or not ,in conspiracy with the UWP.everyone has the right who they should vote for.

    It is time for dominicans to see the errors of the labour party government. if they continue to vote mr.skerrit and the labour party government then they are committing treason against the island they claim to love so much.

    mr.skerrit only thinks of himself and his family,he is not thinking of the people of Dominica, he has made promises he has not kept. the people of the other Caribbean countries are laughing Dominicans saying our country is underdeveloped.the only place developed in Dominica is mr.skerrit’s house.

    The dictator tendencies of Roosevelt Skerrit are now on full view. It is very disappointing and downright scary that he should accuse members of his own party of being responsible for bloodshed if they don’t vote for him. We know very well that a vote for any of his candidates is a vote for him, the election posters make that clear. Now he has imposed a candidate on the Wesley constituency that is not everybody’s cup of tea but he is using bully tactics to make them swallow that tea anyway. Well, Skerrit, this is still a free country and I hope the people of Wesley give you some of your own medicine and tell you to go to hell instead and that they are grown up people who can make up their own mind. If they don’t want Anthea they don’t want her, period.

      Skerrit has not used any technical terminology, the man does not think before he babbles, that is why each time he opens his mouth he insults the nation.

      Sometime ago the man was invited to speak in Texas, the organizers were disappointed with the crap this so call English major spoke, some suggest he should have someone write his speech. His English is very poor how they could have employed someone like that to teach English in a school in Dominica, If someone is unable to articulate effectively, in a conversation, how can you teach peoples children English:


      No wonder he placed Petter, anot in the position of the Minister of Education Education: Petter was a so called teacher who would mark his students work wrong when in fact the students work was correct.

      Skerrit does not have the capacity, no ability to express himself grammatically!
