PM Skerrit stresses the importance of voting to supporters

PM Skerrit said Labourites know what their mission is

Leader of the Dominica Labour Party (DLP), Roosevelt Skerrit, has told supporters that voting in the December 8 general election is so important that on the morning of the polls they should bypass even taking a shower.

Speaking at a rally in Calibishie on Wednesday night he said Labourites should remain focused since they know what their mission is.

“I have been telling you what you have to do on December 8 is to wake up, or don’t sleep at all, pray to the almighty father, have your coffee or your bush tea or cocoa tea and go straight to the polls,” he stated. “You don’t have to bathe before you go, don’t waste your time bathing, don’t waste your time taking no shower nor bath, we are going straight to the polling station on December 8.”

He told supporters to put their X next to the shoe, the symbol of the DLP, “and put Labour back in power with a landslide victory.”

“So more progress can come to Dominica, more developments can come to our country and more people can feel that yes I am truly Dominican, I am Dominica, we are Dominica and we shall all proclaim how great the good Lord is and how great Labour Party has been to Dominica,” Skerrit said.

He also took a knock at those who he said want “to declare war” on Dominicans who want to excercise their right to vote.

“I am dumbfounded by a political party wanting to form the next government of Dominica would be so misguided as wanting to declare war on its own citizens for doing something that is entirely their rights and lawful entitlements as citizens of Dominica to do,” he said.

A group calling itself “The Citizens Forum for Good Governance” has begun publicizing names of people living overseas which it claims have accepted bribes and tickets from the DLP to come and vote in Dominica during the general election.

The United Workers Party (UWP) has aloso expressed concerns “about irregularities in the form of bribery of individuals to come to Dominica to vote.”

“The logic of the UWP is strange,” Skerrit said. “They spent hundreds of thousands of dollars last year flying to all corners of the globe, preaching doom and gloom to Dominicans abroad. They were hopin to whip up and anti-Dominican frenzy among Dominicans or persons in the diaspora but Dominicans abroad are following developments at home. Not only are they visiting more often but we have several social media avenue available for them to monitor and view developments at home.”

Campaign manager for the DLP, Dr. Vince Henderson, had said the party is not in the business of bribery but “if it wishes to exercise its rights to facilitate Dominicans overseas to come home to vote, it may do that if necessary.”

    Skerrit, it’s non else that wants to declare war on your own citizens and to enslave them again with bribery and handouts.
    On a different note, I have not heard a single word of the puppet master Tony Astaphan! Has he left the sinking ship already? Is he keeping a low profile because he can see the writing on the wall? Come on Dominica, let’s free ourself from these pirates now. This is our last chance, let’s do the right thing for our beloved country.

    the pm is so selfish and so self centered all this man wants is your votes then to hell with you. Imagine a pm telling his people not knowing if they sleeping in a pissbath dont shower just come and vote. its all about him and his power. Just hope he can deliver for the next 5 years because the electorial list favour him so nuch for this election. The opposition should ensure a new list was put in place but i guess they were to weak to handle that

    Good advice mr. Skerrit. DLP voters don’t bath, so we can easliy smell those mercenaries he paid to come and meddle in our lives and eject them. They are the stinkers.

    well i do not leave in D/A but if what you all are saying is true this PM needs to get out. He has made enough of Dominica’s money . You should not go into this type of job to become rich, you go in it to help and develop the country. How did he make that kind of money. Did he fix viecase road. He properbly uses a helicopter to go to his home in viecase. Throw him out and take all D/A money back. thi man is selfish and he thinks that Dominicans are Dom suckers because he came in poor and made it rich. suckers. zor sot.

    well I do not leave in D/A but you all do and know what is going on and if what you all are saying is true, this man needs to get out and put in prison. Moreover, have all his money he made while in office taken from him and put back in the country for the people. He came in broke let him get out broke. Does this PM have a Degree? Maybe not but he sure knows how to fatten his bank account.

    Dominicans it is time that you stand up to Skerrit about all WOMEN on the Island we have to say enough is enough he should be taught a hard lesson for who he disrespect or women the man is crazy, I’m wondering how does she feel hearing her husband say something like that, I’m so disappointing in him. Now I know for sure Skerrit has gone crazy when he can tell the world if he had a daughter he would like her to be another Athenia Benjamin can you imagine Athenia lies, cheat, uneducated ect she have joined with her friends in Toronto to destroyed the Commonwealth of Dominica/Ontario Association in Toronto Canada because she refused to work and follow the procedures instead she develop a jealousy in the Association that is who Skerrit would like his daughter to be like what a disgrace. I hope both women of his children are saying how happy they are because they do not have girls.
    Dominicans it is time you ask Skerrit what does Athenia have hanging over him,
    Team Dominican UWP don’t have to go down in dirty with Skerrit their are a lot of us that knows a lot of dirty about him and his ministers I just hope they are ready to take it.

    We are changing from Labor to Team Dominica UWP .

    “Obeah is practiced in Suriname, Cuba, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, “DOMINICA”, Guyana, Barbados, Grenada, Belize, The Bahamas and other Caribbean countries.” Well i don’t know where Wikipedia got that information but this is what it says on there. So, is that statement of skerritt confirmation that the labourites are under a spell and if they bathe it will was away that spell?

    I don’t normally talk about politics, but when I do it’s a bombshell…

    So… progress hmm, well look at the roads in Dominica, most of them not built properly they should be build gently slopping so that the water runs of into the drains… As for the drains most places in Dominica they are non existent or poorly constructed, for example near the gas station, along the stretch of road leading to Loubiere those ‘drains’ form huge puddles of water…. Also that piece of road is not marked COUNTLESS TIMES I see motorists driving in the middle of the road instead of keeping to their side. Another thing why can’t the road be marked on that same stretch of road I saw a tourist go down in the drain, due to the road not being marked…. we all know as Dominicans how narrow the roads can be why not mark the edges along the roads to indicate the edge. As for night driving people always have their beam on you know the reason for this the roads have no marking or reflectors, point blank you driving blind in the night you can hardly see the road cause it is not marked…. Also along corners you seeing huge bush blocking your view, but nooo they have some MUCH MONEY FOR BILLBOARDS INSTEAD OF FIXING THE ROADS… come on man mark the roads build the roads properly

    I am not sure why skeritt is trying to scare people like that. Countires have diplomatic relations with other countries not with the prime minister of a country personally. If linton is there, he will still have the ties with the countries and everything that is in the pipeline will go through. If nothing goes through that means they were not in the pipeline……..point blank.

    Roosevelt Skerrit is NOT the prime minister of dominica sakway toneh parliament has been dissolved

    ADMIN: Although parliament has been dissolved, the prime minister and other ministers have not resigned, hence their positions remain. This remains so until another prime minister and ministers are elected and appointed to replace them. So a prime minister resigns following the election of a new prime minister and he or she must make way for the incoming one. Actually the resignation is automatic since the old prime minister must make way for the new one.

        Ok, I am a bit confused here, and if you read this can you respond to this to clarify it:

        I know JCD represents doctor of canon law. Whereas “JD” is doctor of jurisprudence, doctor of law. My question is are you referencing Vince Henderson?

        If he is one of the same; is he lawyer? Unless he is a lawyer by profession, meaning he graduated from some Law School, he is nothing, and his claim to JD is fake! I heard and saw that guy on Marpin Television years ago, every question he was asked he pulled out a bunch of papers, to find the answer.

        This a who I know who say: “townsand”, whereas the word is thousand you know, he also pronounced thirty, thus, terty ( thirtie) I do not know where he was taught the English language, if he is the same guy, that sucker to my mind does not have any degree. We know he attended some classes here he might claim he graduated from some university in America, if he does, we will find out if it is true by looking up his records.

        Shameless you deserve the name you have because he is not the PM of Dominica at this moment that seat is vacant if he should win the election God forbid then we have no choice to address him by the legal title PM of Dominica right now he is not.
        He cannot go around the Island or out of Dominica signing any deals where Dominica is concern that would be bad for the Island and I just hope to God he is not doing so
        But we know who we are dealing with that’s the same man who said ” NO LAW NO CONSTITUTION WILL STOP HIM “, well we the people of the Commonwealth of Dominica have the power in our hands to stop him election day. I say take all that he is handing out and on that day say thanks but no thanks it’s time to go.
        Dominicans it’s time you put your children a head of Skerrit their future is in your hand don’t make them damm you at the end. Skerrit put his children before you all he made them citizen of another mans Country he made provision for them now it’s time to do the same for your children don’t throw this chance away.

      I guess you really don’t know or understand we the Marigot people we don’t bow to dictators or dictatorship, do you really believe we can VOTE for someone who cause us not have our HOSPITAL do you really we want some who uses drug instead of curing ill person come on don’t be foolish, One thing I know Dayton or Martin have any chance of winning the Marigot seat, tell your DLP party we are a people that cannot be bought and we know when we back someone we look for qualities you Skerrit and your party don’t have., we are a very proud people in the village of Marigot.
      If you do a survey of all your Government institutions in Dominica you will one or even more than one person or persons are from Marigot that’s how much we know what we want and who you a dealing with and we don’t believe in hand out.
      Remember the days gone by Marigot people were the ones bringing FOOD to the capital not only for their children going to school there but to sell so that you and families could have to eat, so don’t mess with folks from Marigot. Now we have a few who believe hand outs is the way to go well we are saying NO on behalf of all the folks at home and in the Diaspora.

    “I have been telling you what you have to do on December 8 is to wake up, or don’t sleep at all, pray to the almighty father”(Roosevelt Skerrit).

    Here is another insult to the people who listens to this fully blown dictator again. I remember a time in Dominica when parents could tell their children what to do until they reach the ripe old age of twenty-one years old. By the time they reach 21 years old they had become adults, and could by then make their own decisions, and choices for themselves.

    In America, I could only dictate what my children were supposed to do until they reach the ripe old age of eighteen years old. In America Children become adults on their eighteenth birth day. Nevertheless, here is an none-graduate alumni talking about “I have been telling you what you what you have to do.” In the first place Roosevelt you have no authority to tell people what to do; you have forgotten you can only crawl on your belly at the feet of every Dominican right now and plea, or beg them to vote for you!

    Adults or as we say in Dominica “big people” are supposed decide for themselves what they want to do. You treat people as if they are all dumb children, and without your direction they will make a mistake even when they put their best foot out; the trouble is when they put their best foot out, you steep on both feet holding them back as you smile in their faces when they show up at your Red Clinic where they obtain a handout from you!

    You can suggest what you believe the people, or a person should do, but to tell someone what to do is like ordering a child to do something: Mr. great English major. Your business is to talk about the issues of the day, the opposition has the same privilege of addressing the very issues.

    Now based on the your resolve; and the method you intend to use to resolve the issues: such as unemployment, the bad shape in which our medical institutions stands, the plans to industrialize the country; you need to state when construction work will begin on the International Airport. Lennox Linton will lay out his development plan, and how he intends to resolve the unemployment issues, how he is going to resolve the issues within our medical system. Based on his resolve, presented to the adults of our country, they will assess both your, and the resolve of Lennox, and chose one of you.

    This crap you are talking about people should not even take a bath on December 8th to go out and vote on a hungry belly, while yours is stuffed with hog fat is baloney. Do you think about the economy of the country, and the poverty you have caused in the country? The majority of people in Callibishe do not have showers in their homes, the same applies to the rest of Dominica, have you forgotten Skerrit, that in this modern day and age, the pit-hole is still king in Dominica. Are you aware that even the people of your village where you built your millions of dollars plus mansion, still have to go outside in the middle of the night; rain or shine to squat over a pit-hole filled with feces, and water to defecate?

    That is the life many of our people live everyday in our country Skerrit, whiles you and your ministers flaunt your wealth which you accumulated over the past fifteen years in the faces of the poor people in the country. You are not in a position to tell anybody what they should or should not do, you can suggest, and hope that they vote for you; and praying to God for you to win: boy, if your Roman Catholic priest, and bishop tells you that God will answer that prayer after you said “when people pray to God for something, and he takes long to give it to them, and they never gets it, but as soon as they come to you the ” god” Skerrit you immediately give it to them.” God does not hear the prayers of sinners, Skerrit and God is not mocked Roosevelt!

    Uwp spent hundreds and thousand of dollars flying all over the globe! Labour spending hundred millions on billboards, sewo and tickets. Workers spent their money for their global tour; in the last 15years they haven’t been close to the public purse.

    But whose monies are DLPspending? Is it tax payers money or money from friendly governments? Ok I remember ‘ its none of your damn business who is giving Labour party money.’
    DLP can get millions to campaign from their ‘friendly governments’
    But to acheieve electoral reform
    But to pay the economic fees for students to graduate and their commitment universities and other regional institutions

        Who said it is not all Skerrit? Have you seen the billboards? Mister Skerrit overpowers anyone else. Even the parl rep posters bear his name!Maybe you don’t live in Dominica but here nothing happens without his say so. The parliamentary representative are mere stooges, mollokoy and that is why we want change!

    What kind of thing is that for me there nah? Doe bathe :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: ?

    So you so hungry for power you are telling people that is does not matter if they bathe just come and vote for you? :twisted: :twisted: . Well well well, desperation has really taken over. But doh loose your head yet, wesley people will tech you a serious lesson for violating their right to nominating a candidate of their choice. By the way FYI Mr. Skerrit, the said “teacher G” and family will NOT be voting for your imposed candidate. No one will dare tell you so I am breaking the news to you. Ask around Wesley constituency and you will find out that some past DLP stalwarts are hard at work advising that NO votes should be cast on behalf od the “imposed” candidate. Be reminded sir that Change Is A Must!

    Assertive, NOT Aggressive! :twisted:

    BY the way, FYI my name SCWH stands for the Skerrit Christmas Woodants Hospital. Mr. Skerrit, make know mistake about it because we laborites will show up in very, very, very large numbers, in every constituency to vote you out! In fact not even your seat is safe, as AB is making a lot of secret progress in the Vieill Case constituency. Just remember that 65% of voters in your constituency are from Penville, and for the FIRST time in the history of Penville, we can boast of having produced a politician and a very good and honest gentleman. We will give him FULL support at the polls, though we will campaign for you in public, just to get what we can from you. We love our boy AB, and Vieille Case and Thibaud are standing firm. So don’t think you are safe as I can see the last Antigua election taking place in Dominica.

    You know I cannot help but wonder why people believe that their navel string must be tied to a political party. I voted for Freedom party and when they died I voted for DLP under Douglas and once under Skerrit. But realised that Skerrit was looking out for himself and his senior ministers instead of looking out for Dominica I decided that cannot work. So this time around I’m voting for team Dominica.

    Dominicans please put country first and not party. Jean gwabay…. you have been voting for labour forever but other than the longer line of persons collecting welfare at the council office and a new police station to ensure that your constituents can be jailed comfortably what else has been done for your? have you seen young people get jobs? have you seen programs in place for the young persons? remember the NEP is temporary.

    Jean gwatas what has Ian done for you? what has the DLP done for you other than the incomplete hotel? what do you have to show for a lifetime of voting labour? come on people think country.

    As for the rest of Dominica is time you think of cutting those navel string ties and think of the country. think of your children. Do you plan on introducing them to the red clinic to beg? or are you planning on voting for change?

    AT this point folks change is really a must! it cannot be an option when skerrit getting fatter and richer and the rest of us getting poorer.

    Lmao. You know the funny thing there are labourites who are going to do exactly what the PM said. I am yet to hear pm boast of what he has done to better people’s life during last 14 yrs and give working people hope for future to better themselves. Its a bunch of BS. Seems we are regressing in our political rhetoric and common sense. Where is the substance, where are the ideas, where are the commonsense plans. What a waste of time.

    I guess Vince Henderson’s “facilitation” of travel is the same as a businessman greasing the hand of the government officials to “facilitate” business activity.

    Good one Vince. It’s a good thing I did not waste my parents’ money when they paid my school fees.

    What steers Marigot people in the face everyday, 24/7, is what locals know to be “The Skerrit Christmas Woodants Hospital” (SCWH). Not only Marigotians, but ALL visitors as well as Dominicans living here as well as Dominicans living abroad that are planning to come to vote. Unlike other hospitals, the SCWH serves us all since it is less that 5 miles from the Airport, should their be an incident.

    Don’t bathe Skerrit? Stand in line for hours but don’t bathe once you can win? You are very twisted. You are th6e same one of fb claiming you want your sons to be like Shanks Espirit and Casius . For a vote and noticing you will say anything. What next wish your wife to be like sang? You bathing in bottled spring water but you telling Dominicans don’t bathe.wicked

    Ok, first it was the blood of Dominica being on the hands of the Wesley people, now it is a Declaration of War for expressing the known fact that facilitating travel and providing spending money is BRIBERY, worst allowing people to vote whom are deemed ineligible under Dominican law by virtue of residing out of the Country consistently for the last five years.
    What is the purpose of having laws if the Government themselves will not abide by them? Is it our right to import Cocaine? NO! Yet, if the Government can bring in illegal voters, how can they tell the Drug Barons not to bring in illegal drugs????? The law is the law no matter who you are! Point Blank!!!!
    Furthermore, it is a constitutional right for ANY citizen to protest against any wrong-doing being done by Politicians, Political Parties and ANYONE ELSE in Dominica!
