UWP condemns PM Skerrit’s statement on Monel Williams

The UWP said the statement on Williams was 'disgraceful'
The UWP said the statement about Williams was ‘disgraceful’

The women’s arm of the United Workers Party (UWP) says it is condemning statements concerning Monel Williams made by prime minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, during a Dominica Labour Party (DLP) rally held in Calibishie on Wednesday night.

“If I had a daughter, ladies and gentlemen, I would wish for her to one day be a Catherine Daniel, to be an Athenia Benjamin, to be a Nurse Charles or to be a Roselyn Paul,” Skerrit told supporters. “I would definitely not wish for my daughter to be a Monel Williams because I might end up short of a grandchild.”

Williams is the UWP candidate for the St. Joseph Constituency.

The statement has been causing a stir on social media and president of the UWP’s women’s arm, Letricia Cadette, described it as “disgraceful” and “a gross disrespect” for women.

“In the last few hours I have read and listened to many comments on the statements made by the prime minister where (he) claimed, if he had a daughter he would not want that girl to be like Senator Monel Williams nor would he want his son to be like Lennox Linton,” she said. “It is the prerogative of Mr Skerrit in his private capacity to wallow in the gutters.”

However, she said, Skerrit “still has a duty to behave and conduct himself in an upright manner as a prime minister should. Mr. Skerrit in his utterances have disrespected all the women of Dominica.”

Cadette is condemning the statement and is calling on all Dominican women, the Bureau of Gender Affairs and the National Council of Women to do the same.

She also had some direct words for the prime minister.

“Sir, it was not too long ago that your representative signed a document on your behalf and that of the Dominica Labour Party that you would adhere to the rules of an election code of conduct,” she stated.

She went on to say it is the courage of Williams “standing up against all odds that will inspire women to have a voice.”

“It is the fortitude of Monel to finish the journey that will encourage young women to work hard. It is the strength she has portrayed as a single mother determined to succeed that will give rise to single mothers, high school dropouts and women with similar means to persevere,” Cadette said.

    I wonder if when the Speaker of the House was being verbally abused daily by the Opposition Parties and the same women group stood there and helped to cheer the abuse of one of the most powerful women in our time instead of coming to her defence, what a different political world it would be.

    Do we believe the PM was not hurt by all what was being said about him every day? Do you think his family and friends and supporters do not feel the pain?

    We can not have one rule for those we do not support and expect those we support to be treated differently. If women refuse to climb the fire pole or carry the heavy hoses they should not become a firefighter. They can work for the fire department but not as a fire fighter because they cannot do all the required job of a fire fighter.

    A politician is human yes, but must be a tough enough person to do the job. Even if we want women in certain jobs they must be able to do the job and all what goes with it and not be there as a token. We would not want a doctor who is afraid of blood to operate on us, would we?

    The PM should not have made that statement. My PM have too much class for that. This shows that he is only human and he has endured a lot from the opposition. Make no mistake, those who are trying to say that Lennox did not call Dominican women prostitutes, that this is so much nonsense. He said that Dominican women were prostituting THEMSELVES for assistance from the public purse. This is the same as calling them prostitutes. We should not condemn when one side makes a damaging statement and remain silent when the side we support do the same.

    For those of you trying to justify
    Skerrit’s remark by comparing it to Linton’s prostitution gaffe. Well let me just say that It is not the same thing. Skerrit is the elected head of the country. He has to show leadership in everything that he does, what he eats, everthing that he says, the people that he hang’s out with, right down to the place’s that he frequents, he must show leadership. He must lead by example It is his responsibility, he is duty bound to do so. Like it or not. It is really sad to see how deep in the mire our politics has sunk too. Can you imagine what would have happened to President Obama if he was to respond to all of the hurtful and disgusting things that has been said about him in the media? He would have been no more that’s for sure.

    We in Dominica have long given our politicians carte blanch to do whatever pleases them, this present administration is a culmination of every thing that has gone on before. We are treading dangerous waters right now, and if not checked it can and will get worse.

      I agree and disagree! I agree with your assessment of the expected behaviour of the Prime Minister. I do not agree that it does not apply almost equally to the aspiring Prime Minister because the tendencies that he displays while he is aspiring are exactly what he will bring to the plate as Prime Minister, so perhaps it is even more incumbent on him to be right in everything because he is asking us to replace the present Prime Minister with him. I would imagine that logically you should only exchange something you have for something better, shouldn’t you?

      My conclusion? Both leaders were wrong with what they said and we should stop making excuses for either, period. In fact if you ask me one was worse than the other! Guess which one?

        Barbara, I can’t say that I disagree with your reasoning, however the point that I was trying to convey was that the Prime Minister is the one in charge. He’s the one at the helm, he has the most to loose. He has to be seen as the bigger man. Not for one second am I condoning the opposition, far from it , but Skerrit has taken their bait. Hook line and sinker. He should sack his advisors.

    Dear Monel, I do not know you, but I have heard about you, and I have heard you speak. You have been attacked by the top leader of our beautiful country, and other members of our current government. No one should attack anyone, far less for a woman, on a political platform like this. A personal attack on one woman, reflects the lack of respect to all Dominican women, by our leaders.

    You seem to be an intelligent and caring person who has had the courage to come forward and represent your people, in an effort to advocate for them and attempt to make life better. For this you should be commended. There are not many women in politics in Dominica, or in the Caribbean. I have a message for you. Do not lower yourself to these mens’ level. Please maintain a high level of principle, dignity, and self-respect. I heard you said you have a message for tommorow(Sunday). Please be careful how you respond, do not get personal, and do NOT fall into that Maypuis trap.

    Monel, I wish you well in your personal and Political life, and I am praying for you and all the politicians. I am praying for DOMINICA. God knows and sees everything, He is in control, and we must not be fooled by our achievements on this earth, but rather use them as blessings from the Most High God. Continue to do what you are doing, stand up for what is right, and hold your head up high. Be an example to the populace, especially the youth, who always need guidance and direction. God bless you.

    Some of you on here are just too hypocrite. ‘Zor trop Pohkwit’. What Skerrit means is she eats ‘pwell’ and those who eat ‘pwell’ cannot procreate. Got it? I do not see anything wrong with his statement. The political standards in Dominica are far gone and cannot be saved at this point. Last i checked, Lennox was the one who started this hate geared campaign with such vulgar language. Skerrit never responded until cabinet was dissolved. You want to start fire and cannot take the heat. And for the record Lennox did call Dominican Women prostitutes, I don’t care if he was being direct or indirect. That was the meaning he intended! Sacweh Idiots, some of you are so shameful. I can only laugh when reading some of these comments.

    Let me first express my sentiment to the young senator who was intentional attacked by the prime minister. I apologise on the behalf of” manhood”, I apologise because I have a mother, sister, niece and a daughter, these are the expected words which ought to uttered by the PM. I am highly disappointment in a prime minister in which young people look up to for inspiration and much more. It is sad to say that politics always gets the best of everyone, reading this statement evinced to me that don’t matter how high a man may be in stature, his true reflection always sells him out. With might and main you shall prevail Ms Williams, you shall stand among the greatest and your voice will be heard. Let this be a ”trial”in an attempt to further pursue your objective, To the PM, you are a disgrace to the face of Dominica, a land I love with passion and unrelenting attachment. The PM has added” insult to injury” when a man exceeds his expectation of hate and animosity, let it be remembered as an example to his demise. The PM is left to his own devices, and that should not be a standard to be valued Domincans, What about the national anthem, you must read it and repeat it endless, then correlate to the PM actions. See if you can make that sense of awareness, Don,t be Fooled by prizes people, the PM has travelled to countless places, he knows how to survive, Do you know? I leave this question for your gains

      @Mr. Scotland… you use harsh negative words to describe the man that you are censuring concerning his statements about a woman. Doesn’t that make you the same? The irony of the matter is that Monelle is a lesbian and your opinion is just that an opinion. Go eat an onion to garner tears for your comment and play the violin while you’re at it Monelle is and always will be a lesbian and nobody really cares where she puts her mouth, who the cap for let them wear it!

    :oops:

    How hard is it to condemn something if it’s wrong? No need to change party or beliefs. Just a need to rise above that and place people first – whether a woman can have, or wants to have a child is strictly her business and does not belong on a political platform. Nuff respect to all parties involved, but none of us is perfect and nobody is too big to say a simple “I’m sorry”. Being able to do that makes you a better person.

    Be reasonable people. Doh matter which political side had expelled this disgusting example of verbal feces, it was indeed nasty, downgrading and demeaning to any woman. For that matter it was a depreciating verbal abuse of the most vicious kind.

    Just remove Monell from the picture for a moment, and in her place put your mother, wife, daughter or any female relative. If you still think that there is nothing wrong, then you are the archetype of the scum of the earth.

    Miss Monell please hold your head high and continue on your trajectory to victory . The good thing about this cowardly revilement, was that it wreaked more collateral damage on the rapidly depleting image of the languishing pm than to a blessed child like you. The outgoing PM is a desperate man. He has allowed evil men to entice him into a woefully suffocating web of corruption, deceit and despicable manifestations.. He has smelt the cold and excruciating scent of a certain defeat and his utterances are the scared and irrational reactions to his inevitable and disgraceful exit

    Ok, lets be honest here. The PM is totally out of line and must be held to account for such a demeaning statement. We cannot vote someone like that in office for we all have mothers, sisters, aunts, girl children etc.

    Further as a PM married to a woman that is NOT perfect, Skerro lives in a “GLASS HOUSE” and should NOT throw stones. Those of us who know better can simply travel to New Jersey, talk to the former husband of Dominica’s first lady and come back with a wealth of evidence that no one will be proud of….not even the PM. Further, we can simply talk students in Beijing and get all the facts on what transpired and continue to transpire when he visits the PRC. However, we will not go there as a mark of respect for our women but that is NOT because we do not have the facts.

    In this regard, I caution the PM to STOP his assault on Monel and other Dominican women before its too late because I promise him he will be docking for cover if the poopoo is stirred.

    To Monel I say hold strong for god giveth a woman no more than she can take. You WILL win the constituency and Skerrit as I speak right now is looking at serious jail time for all his misdeeds. Keep your head up high for Apres Bondie C’est Later. I promise you will have the last laugh. Change Is A Must!

    Enough about Monelle and her sexual orientation. Who cares if she n! If St. Joe want her for their rep that’s their business.
    Dominica doesn’t have jobs because of the Dominica businesses and their backward practices. The Chinese may be opening competitive businesses but they hire Dominicans to work. Dominicans doh like to work!!! that’s why they don’t have jobs, plus the country is developing and there is alot plenty too much nepotism still going on in the private sector. the only way this is a government problem is if the government could force larger companies to go public and sell the stock on a local or regional financial market which would give them the cash they need to expand (more tax$) at the same time enforce corporate laws on them to prevent them from only hiring their family members (and girlfriends) also with a board of directors they wont make arbitrary decisions and voleur the company money without prosecution. that alone will provide more jobs and keep Dominica enterprises profitable. It will also pave the way for local and foreign investments in new and innovative ideas. My example is if Mark zuckerberg was born in Laplaine and he discovered/created facebook while going to state college… there is no path, no means, no way for Mark from Laplaine to become billionaire Mark from the US. the country needs financial reform aimed at corporations and mid to large businesses with the intention of expanding to other Islands and countries. Facebook is not facebook because its a great idea it became great because their was a channel for people to invest in it and it was marketed. There are great minds here, we just need the foundation to build on. Labour… Power!

    (“Hey Telemaque, I support most what you said except that I’m certain Skerritt graduated from Ole Miss. I don’t support his way of governing however, I’ll give him his credit that he did graduate.”(Unknown).

    No nonsense now; I am telling you here and now, Roosevelt Skerrit did not; and I reiterate, Skerrit did not graduate neither in a four year college nor any university in the United States of America!

    We search for records, and did not find any graduating list on which there is such a name as Roosevelt Skerrit! Now he may have used another name when he attended school, however, we researched Roosevelt Madrid Skerrit, and found no records of any individual with such name graduated in any university in Mississippi, or in Louisiana. We heard he may have spent some time in Oklahoma, we checked there also, we found no record of the man graduating there! We track him moving from the Southern States from where he headed North to New York. We do not know what his activities were while in New York, prior to his return to Dominica, okay!

    In any event, if indeed Skerrit graduated from college, or university, it would be quite simple to present his diploma he received on graduation day! That would be much simpler than to put on a bogus show with the attires he may have purchased at a swapmeat or, on a street corner, and pretending that he graduated; talking about he is alumna, wether you are “alumna, or alumnus” it is not a big deal, anyone one who has attended or has graduated from a particular school, collage, or university, is an alumna, or alumnus; that also implies one who is a former member, employee, contributor, or an inmate. Now, speaking in terms of inmate, all of the criminals incarcerated at Stock Farm, are inmates, hence when they are released from jail, automatically they become na alumna-ni which is plural, of that institution.

    So, for him to put on his lying show talking about he is, an alumna, or alumnus, if he did not graduate, what’s the point of lying? He would not be the first. Great guys such as the late Tim Hector of Antigua, and others who attended the University of West Indies, failed to graduate, in the British and Caribbean system such people are termed “under graduates students,” meaning they attended college or university, however they fail to graduate. Failing to graduate does not mean one cannot be successful, but when you find someone like Skerrit who seems to be prone to failure, and lie, his conning and cynical crap must be exposed. The state of our economy is the proof; one wonders how can someone who boast his education, could have made so many blunders over the past fifteen years he is at the helm of our nation.

    I am not contending that one must have a degree in anything to be able to run a country, but what’s the point of keeping Skerrit in power, when he has failed himself, the people, and the country, for the past fifteen years. When people such as Edward O Leblanc discovered he could not do more than he had already done for the country; he decided to quit, as such in 1962, the early part of that year he hinted ” I will not be around for long! He was making room for another. People like Frank Baron I respect; such people, because they did not try to force themselves on the people, nor did they try to make Dominica their Estate, they bowed out gracefully, they did not fight to hold on to the office knowing they had reach their peak: Leblanc could have been Chief Minister of Dominica for as long as he wonted, yet he quit. Skerrit however, decides he must be prime Minister of Dominica for fifty years. Only dictators remain in power until they die, or until they are overthrown by the people.

        You either graduate, you drop out. If one quit in the middle of any semester, without an GPA, it will be recorded as ” Walked Incomplete.” I have been to University, and College in America, and knows how it. I do not know if he attended some vocational school for six months or what but, I sure Skerrit has not graduated from any University here.

        Now if you stand by your words, and all you have said it true and correct, I challenge you to disclosed you name affix your name to the garbage you write as I am deliberate, and bold in writing under given name, so that I can prove you credibility.

        Unless you can do that, shut your mouth, because you are nothing than a blasted liar! How cares if his name is Madrid or what? If it is not Madrid, then tell me what it is so that I can repeat my search to see if he graduated under another name, if you believe I erred.

        I challenged fool!

        People lie like hell in America, but one cannot lie about graduating from college, buying a house, a car: one cannot lie about their worthiness to obtained credit, whatever lie one tell in America, there is always a way to authenticate true or false when they spew the truth or the lie!

    I classified him as an AH since 2004 when Pierro died.
    I heard a remark he made in 2005 or there about .It was in regards to another AH from the UWP and leader at the time who is now in exile after the Desire John affair when SKRIT made a childish comment about INSTRU I told my wife this is an AH for P.M we have back home. She was upset for me reffering to SKRIT as an AH.
    After error after error or deliberate theft from the Land transfer, Binbobol, etc ,etc to this last comment about having a daughter etc my wife finally admits he is an AH she went further to state he is a VERMIN.

    First I would like someone to tell me what is so wrong about the statement that the PM made. UWP official want PM to apology; for what? It appears that they have memory loss. They were the ones that tour round the world accusing the Pm of all sorts of thing, they tried all ways to destroy him as individual, but they could not. He is a human being to. He has feelings like all of us. He has blood flowing through his veins. He hurts like all of us. Now is his time to reply. What goes around comes around. I love my PM; I am a proud labourite. Good luck to you PM and to my parl rep. Mr. Kelver Darroux on December 8th 2014.

    It is unfortunate the kind of spins supporters of the DLP are giving the Monell dehumanizing by Skeritt. A DLP supporter tried to convince me that all Skeritt was trying to say is that Monell is barren. He was unable to tell me how Skeritt got that information. As far as he is concerned , UWP supporters and Dominicans by extension are too sensitive. According to a one time Prime Minister, is so we come. Our beautiful women of Dominica doesn’t deserve respect these days not even by a head of state. Maybe it is because he only has sons and no daughters :mrgreen:

    Ms. Monelle Williams: You have chosen to pursue public office and to serve your constituents so that their lives can be better. As a woman, you represent the hopes and dreams of many girls and women, and I applaud you for making that choice. Life is not always a bed of roses. There are many challenges, but there are lots of opportunities to take the high road. During this campaign season, many will choose to assassinate your character, but hold strong. Remain faithful to what you believe is your calling. Be humble, but do not allow anyone to rob you of your good name. Remember, what matters is not what others may call you, but it is what you answer to that will let others know who you are. Only you can define yourself.
    Best wishes.

    Many Dominican women are jeering and getting their nickers wet when Roosevelt Skerrit transpose his personal anger from his own raffle life story and project it on to Monel or others. What exemplary life has Catherine nor Athenia led that’s so much above reproach? But if a man can want his sons to be like shanks thenI need not prolong this. Skerrit is of extremely low moral standing himself so little is expected of him. However for the sake of your own mother Skerrit and your aunts in VC and Cousins, for the sake of your wife you may want to cease and settle. And tell Donnie unless he wants to read about leftovers on fb zip his trap.he truly is the last man to have an opinion on Monel. To the rest of you defending this crassness how do you really feel on the inside? How many of you came from mothers who were married as virgins? Married before being mothers? How many of you in one home have different last names from your siblings? How many of you women defending this have had multipe babies by multiple men? So don’t take comfort in this is politics because it isn’t. Its crass an unlike Monel many of you and Skerrit can’t face these questions chin up. Stop defending garbage as politics

    I have read all the comments with great care and the deepest scrutiny possible and have decided to comment. Before going further let me make it clear that I supported the UWP from its inception and have supported the party up until this point however, I have not done so blinded to color. So now to my comment. If the lady referred to by the prime lost a child through the dreaded unfortunate circumstance of a miscarriage is this something to celebrate and castigate her for? Is this how our leader show that they possess the ability to care, support and nurture our fellow citizens in their most turbulent times of need. To the ones saying that this is politics I ask have anyone of you suffered a loss in your family through death? If yes how did you feel when words of encouragement and sympathy was extended o you? How would you have felt if your neighbors because you all were not on speaking terms rejoiced at your loss?

    For a moment put politics aside and think of been in that unfortunate situation where in your community your fellowmen laughed and rejoiced at your lost of a family or loved one.

    To the UWP I ask you to review your thinking about the PM been insensible and lacking the ability to detract. He definitely lacks common sense, and continually displays evidence of not having reached maturity in his thinking but give him credit for demonstrating that he is incapable of honesty, integrity, loyalty, courage, and a commitment to duty and service. After having done that reach out to the blinded supporters of this calamity with compassion and love. Understanding that they may be suffering from Stockholm syndrome or more in the words of the great Marcus Garvey, “the longer you associate with ill minded people the more likely you are to become like them.”

    Lastly, to the ones who support the party for the gifts and handouts you receive I ask you this, do you think this is sustainable when the government in the face of civil disobedience will not pay salary increases because in the words of the PM the treasure is unable to sustain any sort of salary increases at this time. Also, how many of you supporters of this pending disaster realize that 5 years from now your wealth will be a further negative from what it is currently while the members of the DLP team will by then have a third, fourth and fifth property.

    I know there will be some unscrupulous, misguided response to this post but I ask that the fair and impartial readers do not spend any time responding to any misguided or misunderstood responses to this post.

    It is either the Prime Minister is implying that the young woman is gay or she is having several abortions: and this absolutely disgraceful. How can any leader traverse to such a low? Is Reggie’s garbage and absolute nonsense, finally polluting the Labour Party, one my family so fervently supported?

    Is it a fear of losing power that drives the party to such a low? Why on God’s earth could an economy be so sluggish with such a high unemployment rate, yet we see millions being spent on billboards while so many of our people are hungry? Although I understand politics is about attacking each other; however, there must be the utmost respect for our women, and a certain decorum employed that would portray our country as a democracy and not a dictatorship. This looks just like PJ all over again.

    warning to his supporters in Wesley, last week, that there will be blood on their hands if they vote for Lennox Linton and the UWP. Has Tony Astaphan suddenly gone deaf? Before Lennox Linton opens his mouth to say something – using figurative expression – you know Lennox Linton is an excellent scholar of the English Language – Tony calls out the police to arrest Lennox. Where is Tony now?

    By the way, police, have you gone to search Tony’s home to find evidence about the Integrity in Public Office matter? You were instructed by him to search Lennox’s home and you dutifully followed his orders and came up with NOTHING. All the time, Tony knew that he, Tony, was the culprit. What’s the latest on that?

    It is amazing how Labor Party supporters rely on the misinformation, propaganda and outright lies of Roosevelt Skerrit, The Animal Show, Tony Astaphan, Kamala and the likes to justify the most hurtful and personal attack on Ms. Monnelle Williams by the Prime Minister of Dominica of all people. The fact is that Lennox Linton NEVER called Dominican women prostitutes. What Mr. Linton actually said was that Government Ministers should stop prostituting (meaning demanding sexual favors from) our women in exchange for assistance from the public purse. This was a direct condemnation of the well-known practices of some corrupt Government Ministers and could in no way be interpreted or construed as an insult to our women.
    Mr. Skerrit and other Labor Party Operatives have twisted Mr. Linton’s statement to remove the focus from these Ministers and to place it on the only man brave enough to challenge these men in public. Mr. Linton’s statement was in DEFENSE of our women not an offense to them!!!!
    Now, DNO commentators are using this particular piece of propaganda and misinformation to justify the outright disrespectful, inappropriate and hauntingly hurtful attack on Ms. Monelle Williams which goes way beyond the realms of politics. This specific statement was intensely personal and hurtful and should be condemned at the highest levels. The Churches, Women’s Organization, General Public and, most importantly, the Government themselves should come out emphatically and condemn this utterly low-level attack on a young woman who did nothing more than offer herself to represent the people of her constituency. The very same young Senator whom the Prime Minister advised to look to him for guidance!!!!
    Anyone justifying this attack should be considered as colluding and promoting the disrespect of all Dominican women, especially single mothers and independent women who dare to exemplify the strength, integrity, respect and equal rights of ALL women in Dominica.
    When a man is wrong he is wrong no matter who he is or what position he holds in our society. In this case, Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has gone way beyond the line and MUST (not should) be reigned in and reprimanded. The loss of a child is DEVASTATING to ANY woman. The Prime Minister’s statement is despicable and deplorable to say the least!!!!!!

Attacking his innocent Baby…Now the house has dissolve as Matt and Lennox said he is no longer the PM he is the leader of the Labor party..So he can lash back now…As I said if you wanna go up for politics be prepared to have all dirty Laundry out there….Jump High Jump Low…Skerrit is still a better leader than Lennox Linton..Ask him to go and assist the poor lady child he hit on the streets and when she asked him for assistance he told her it was not his fault the child ran across the road..Tell him the Dominicans from Antigua he told the government to deport there wont vote him..The same Skerrit that had to save him from being jailed is the same Skerrit he turning around and want to condemn…The diasporas he called all kind of names now he begging for their votes…So Dominicans jump high jump low..Skerrit will be winning this election.

    “If I had a daughter, ladies and gentlemen, I would wish for her to one day be a Catherine Daniel, to be an Athenia Benjamin, to be a Nurse Charles or to be a Roselyn Paul,” Skerrit told supporters. “I would definitely not wish for my daughter to be a Monel Williams because I might end up short of a grandchild.”

    Skerrit, all off the above is total cow manure, you know like in Bull S… The people you are no better than or different to this lady, and I hope you are not thinking in terms of Education, because you are an idiot, your intelligence is lower than that of the woman you are ridiculing.

    You are in no position to insult the woman intelligence, like that when you are no better off than her. In the first place you lie and say you graduated from college our university, in the United States, you bought some graduation attire, and went with it to Dominica throwing cap up in the air, when you probably bought the crap from some damn swapmeat or where religious attire is sold.

    We checked, I will pay you to disclosed to Dominica, from which University, or College you graduated in America. I challenge you, because we checked and know for a fact that you are a dropout, either because of financial reasons, or you were to damn dunce to complete!

    Pick another subject, talk about what the hell you are going to do in order to eliminate the high unemployment rate in the country where more than 80% of the country is unemployed, how are going to resolve the high volume of crime. State emphatically when you are going to ensure an International Airport is built in the country, after you took orders from Ralph Gonzales, ordering you not to build an International Airport in the country when in fact he went and build one in St. Vincent. If you were not dumb, you would realize he was duping you.

    If you had a daughter; well you do not have a daughter, but you have an American born Son, let us hope he does not turn out to be as stupid as his daddy! People do not want to hear you bleeding, grieving song about Monel . It is not about her it is about the country, every fife years it is the same damn thing character assassination, people are tired with such crap, that sort of politics are for illiterate people, so of us are above that sort of filth, and don’t want to hear it!

    And let me say here, some of you had better not open your mouth on me, because I could care less about Skerrit’s politics, and most of all I do not want a damn thing from any politician in Dominica, period!

        You idiot your mind is corrupt, and filthy, you have no time to learn the truth from what I have written, that is because you are dumb!

        Trying to insult me makes no difference, I will say whatsoever I wish where it pertains to
        Dominica, and the damage Skerrit has done to there country. Note: I am self employed, you have to wait to use someone computer, or pay in an Internet cafe to write crap; think about how poor you are and in less than twenty years Skerrit is multimillionaire.

        Such are the issues you should be talking about, not crap about wether I am homosexual or not: As I said ask the lady! If I am gay, I am a darn rich one by the way!

      People of Dominica according to the CONSTITUTION we do not have a Prime Minister at this moment, Roosevelt Skerrit is no longer the PM that seat became vacant when the house was devolved and election was called the only person in charge of Dominica for now is the President like it or not , So I call on all Dominicans at home and in the Diaspora to understand that Skerrit is no longer the PM of Dominica his seat is empty and that’s why he is running to regain it again , he cannot sign any deal on behalf of Dominica or people of Dominica at this time, if he win the election God forbid then he can be called Prime Minister of Dominica but for now he is just an ordinary individual running for office .

      No matter what he says or do Skerrit gave up the title of PM when he called the election for December 8,2014.
      Every one on the Island should get a copy of the Constitution and study it for themselves it’s time you know it inside out stop living in the dark.

As a mother myself I cant imagine the pain one suffers after the loss of a child and to have it used in such a degrading way is shamefull.

    LINTON NEVER CALLED DA WOMEN PROSTITUTES!!!!!

    It is amazing how Labor Party supporters rely on the misinformation, propaganda and outright lies of Roosevelt Skerrit, The Animal Show, Tony Astaphan, Kamala and the likes to justify the most hurtful and personal attack on Ms. Monnelle Williams by the Prime Minister of Dominica of all people. The fact is that Lennox Linton NEVER called Dominican women prostitutes. What Mr. Linton actually said was that Government Ministers should stop prostituting (meaning demanding sexual favors from) our women in exchange for assistance from the public purse. This was a direct condemnation of the well-known practices of some corrupt Government Ministers and could in no way be interpreted or construed as an insult to our women.
    Mr. Skerrit and other Labor Party Operatives have twisted Mr. Linton’s statement to remove the focus from these Ministers and to place it on the only man brave enough to challenge these men in public. Mr. Linton’s statement was in DEFENSE of our women not an offense to them!!!!
    Now, DNO commentators are using this particular piece of propaganda and misinformation to justify the outright disrespectful, inappropriate and hauntingly hurtful attack on Ms. Monelle Williams which goes way beyond the realms of politics. This specific statement was intensely personal and hurtful and should be condemned at the highest levels. The Churches, Women’s Organization, General Public and, most importantly, the Government themselves should come out emphatically and condemn this utterly low-level attack on a young woman who did nothing more than offer herself to represent the people of her constituency. The very same young Senator whom the Prime Minister advised to look to him for guidance!!!!
    Anyone justifying this attack should be considered as colluding and promoting the disrespect of all Dominican women, especially single mothers and independent women who dare to exemplify the strength, integrity, respect and equal rights of ALL women in Dominica.
    When a man is wrong he is wrong no matter who he is or what position he holds in our society. In this case, Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has gone way beyond the line and MUST (not should) be reigned in and reprimanded. The loss of a child is DEVASTATING to ANY woman. The Prime Minister’s statement is despicable and deplorable to say the least!!!!!!

    if mr. linton own was stem from what you just stated, can you or anyone please tell us where Mr. Skeritt statement was stemmed from? so the two statements can be sorted out and these 2 statement can be solved and put to rest. Mr. linton said he has facts to prove his statement. i hpe Mr. Skeritt has fact also to prove his statement. this thing can get very ugly guys. whatever agreement was signed was to keep away from personal attack. because if what i was told this statement was stem for is factual. both statement are shameful. whether our young ladies are being prostituted or whether grandparents will be short of grandchildren

    November 21, 2014

    I am a proud son of a single mother and know her to have down a great job in raising two kids. My sister is a registered nurse and am an Engineer. Now, it is against the background of the latest assault by the PM on senator williams that I condemn his latest utterance. I stand against verbal and physical abuse of women. I have a daughter who I love dearly, and this latest utterances made me cringe from a person with women both nominated to run for Labour and women supporters. I believe that we as a people despite still supporting a party can stand up and be counted as condemning this vulgar behavior. This is a message to the PM and it is my hope you think before you speak, because as I was made to understand the play of words to hide the real truth is that senator Williams lost a child, and your comment implies that you might not have a grandchild. If true this does makes for an interesting interpretation of your mindset as the senator has three children. I suggest you stick to the message of what might win an election, and move away from the personalities. I am on the boarder as to whether I should vote Labour, and about this time am so turned off that it will take a lot to get me to vote Labour.

    Personally I do not see the whole uproar of what the Prime Minister said as being a personal attack on anyone. Every father/mother has the right to make a statement such that they would like their son/daughter to be live XYZ and not like WUV. From what I am hearing/reading elsewhere, the big uproar is about the statement “I would definitely not wish for my daughter to be a Monel Williams because I might end up short of a grandchild.” What exactly does this mean? And why the big uproar. Maybe the groups that are condemning the the statement should tell us why they are condemning the statement and how it is a disrespect/attack on women? If people really want to make an issue about this statement, maybe they should ask their respective representative where they stand on issues of women’s rights such as a mother’s right to choose or pro-life ect. I would also urge the Prime Minister to refrain from these personal attacks and speak on your governance and your record. We all know that politics is dirty, but at some point it people have to stand up and say enough is enough. Red and Blue supporters should call a truce and “Say Enough is Enough.”

    The leader of the Dominica Labor Party really needs to take some time and reflect on what he is saying or about to say in public and at political rallies. From both a personal and professional standpoint, this is getting out of hand and it should not matter if you are “red” or “blue” that is unacceptable. What happen to the signed Code of Conduct?

    The leader of the DLP has gone as far as declaring “Stink Day” on December 8th by telling his citizens not to take a shower or bath on that day but instead go cast their votes. In case, we have all forgotten all of us came from a woman including the DLP leader and to step so low is way beyond imagination here. At the end of the day, I am interested in the country’s development and not about someone being a grandmother or grandchild. Shameful!
    An insult to Monel is an insult to all Dominican women, this coming from a prime minister. The world is watching and listening to the politics of the nature island. My question is this how would other leaders so of whom may be women take these remarks. More importantly should someone of this nature be leading this country.
    LET ME TELL YOU! There is alot of SOCIAL PROSTITUTION going on in DA! and women who read this know themselves…The first mistake you have to do as a man is to give them your cell number…Two days later they calling saying, i did not mean to ask you ner but i am missing money to go to the hair dresser, i need Top Up, my phone fell in water, my light cut off and my meat spoiling, need my nails done, pay my rent and the list goes on and on…Tell Mr Skerro he is an insult to women in DA for most of them has tuned into beggers resulting into being Social Prostitutes…A CHANGE IS A MUST VOTE UWP!
    Mr. L. Linton said, Roosevelt Skerrit led administration who he claims, are extorting SEXUAL FAVORS from women who come to them for assistance.
    Government Ministers have young Dominican women “prostituting themselves” when they seek assistance from government ministers.

    NEW YORK (Reuters) – “The National Basketball Association banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling from the game for life on Tuesday and fined him $2.5 million for racist comments that drew outrage from players, fans, commercial sponsors and even President Barack Obama.”

    Roosevelt Skerrit MUST be taught the same lesson or worse, for the following reasons: 1. His attack was against all women in general, unlike Mr. Stirling whose attack was racist. 2. His attack against women was made in public; unlike Mr. Stirling statement that was made in his bed room. 3. Donald Sterling broke his silence with a televised apology for his “terrible mistake” , unlike Skerrit, who instead of apologizing posted his attack against women on his Face Book.

    This whole thing is laughable. In one of my post below I asked for the context in which Skerrit said he would not want his daughter to be like the candidate from St. Joseph and then people came pounding.

    I fail to understand the outrage if I am trying to understand why he said what he did. So because it is a woman running or a woman running for UWP he has no right to say that?

    I do not know the woman and Skerrit may very well be out of line for saying that, but the idea that I am going to get all bent out of shape not knowing the back story is pure nonsense.

    I am an independent thinker who does not rely on either of the politician parties for my wellbeing.

    This is a woman and she has to be respected as every other human being. I have told y daughter not to expect to be treated as a shrinking violet. I want her to stand up to any man that throws darts at her.

    If you want to get into the race you have to stiffen your back. Give fire, take fire. But it should be done respectfully by everyone who is running.

    So the UWP team have no mothers, sisters, wives, girl friends, children, relatives and friends who are female? I dare say, who are Labour Supporters? I would not say UWPites, if they did; when their leader said and then spelt for clarity the word prostitute referring to women, I would have seen an uproar coming from both the men and women of the party. I heard not peep of objection from any of them. that could only mean they were in agreement with his description of women.

    The UWP coming again and putting emphasis on things maybe the public have no knowledge of like the previous time. Now I am even more curious to find out the reason.

    What is so bad what the PM said compared to what was said by the UWP leader? And all was as quiet as a mouse.

    There are many people who have no children and many families who have no grand children. I don’t got it. What am I missing?

    I have to say I was mortified by what SKerrit said (btw ppl stop call Skerrit PM, he is no longer in this role, he is now the leader of DLP)…..continuing……I was indeed truly appalled by such a statement. Why? Because first thing that came to mind, is that Skerrit was insinuation, Monelle had an or may have had an abortion. And I am certain many interpreted it as such.

    Now all his loyal supports ran to do damage control…..(mark you not him, he cared not for the views of the public so will make no effort for damage control)….. in his loyal subjects efforts to do damage control they rush to highlight “Remember Lennox called Dominican women prostitutes”……..but over and over it has been explained Lennox DID NOT CALL DOMINICAN PROSTITUTES…. and after anyone with a good head on their shoulders listen to what Lennox said will know that’s not what he said……EVEN SKERRIT AND HIS GANG KNEW THAT’S NOT WHAT HE MEANT BECAUSE THEY DID NOT EVEN SHOW UP TO THE COURT AFTER THEY SAID THEY WERE GOING TO TAKE LENNOX TO COURT AND MAKE HIM PAY FOR WHAT HE SAID>>>>>IN THE END THEY DID NOT EVEN HAVE THE BALLS TO FOLLOW THROUGH BECAUSE THEY KNEW THE TRUTH AND ONLY DID ALL THEY DID FOR THE SKERRITIES TO CLAP AND CHEER….

    …..But then again, Lennox statement left room for different interpretations hence some Skerrities could misinterpret…. BUT TELL ME DID SKERRIT LEAVE ROOM FOR MISINTERPRETATION. He could have made the statement without ever making reference to Monelle…..but then that’s just Skerrit for you. NO pride,No dignity.

      @Let’s Think,
      1. Skerrit is still the PRIME MINISTER OF DOMINICA and will remain until the votes are counted and the Electoral Commission releases the official results. The Parliament of Dominica is dissolve but the Executive Branch of Government (The Cabinet of Ministers) remains until they are replaced after the General Elections.

      2. The case you are referring to is the case filed against Lennox Linton by all 18 Ministers for his careless remark that the Ministers are RAPISTS, they did went to Court and the case is schedule to be heard in March of 2015, so the case is on have no fear!! I suspect you are mixing up Lennox’s outburst that Ministers are Prostituting our women for public assistance (which btw is an untrue statement) with the rapist ministers, no one took lennox to Court for his statements made in St Croix and St Martin.

      3. The statement made by Skerrit about Monelle may as you say could be referring to a possible Abortion, not sure how you assumed that because i really have no idea what all this big talk is all about, but let us assume you are correct HOW IS THAT SUCH A BAD STATEMENT? What in this statement that have you so MORTIFIED??

    men like Skerrit Must stop attacking women. Our Dominican women are tired of the abuse that they go through from men that are supposed to protect them. I am calling on all Dominican women including, the four women running on a Roosevelt Skerrit ticket, to withdraw themselves from his campaign and condemn this brutal attack against women. After all, today is Monel but tomorrow might very well be your daughter and we must send a very strong message to men like Roosevelt Skerrit. It was just last year when the owner of the Clippers Basketball, was taught a very bitter lesson when he was forced to sell his business for making a very racist statement against a black woman, in the privacy of his bedroom. Roosevelt’s statement was not even made in his bedroom but in a public political meeting. We CANNOT have such person leading our country. If we allow that to slip through no man will treat Dominican women with any type of respect. So I am calling on all women, as well as all men whose mother is a woman and who have sisters and daughters condemn this statement from the lips of Roosevelt Skerrit.

Attacking his innocent Baby…Now the house has dissolve as Matt and Lennox said he is no longer the PM he is the leader of the Labor party..So he can lash back now…As I said if you wanna go up for politics be prepared to have all dirty Laundry out there….Jump High Jump Low…Skerrit is still a better leader than Lennox Linton..Ask him to go and assist the poor lady child he hit on the streets and when she asked him for assistance he told her it was not his fault the child ran across the road..Tell him the Dominicans from Antigua he told the government to deport there wont vote him..The same Skerrit that had to save him from being jailed is the same Skerrit he turning around and want to condemn…The diasporas he called all kind of names now he begging for their votes…So Dominicans jump high jump low..Skerrit will be winning this election.

No man should refer to a woman like that and no minister should comment on an opposing party on things that do not directly affect their ability to run and plans for a country.

    Monelle, I address you as a young woman who has taken a bold and admirable step to represent the village of St. Joseph. The village when I grew up there was known as Senjoe city now it is known as the poorest village.
    You are an example to young people especially young women. You had your challenges in your young life. Your are an intelligent woman with great potential. Some of us succeeded on the straight and narrow path but you found yourself on a more tortuous path where life has taught you many a lesson. This is where I applaud you and I am proud of you: You did not stay and wallow in the depth of your challenges.
    YOU AROSE AND HAD THE AUDACITY TO PRESENT YOURSELF AS A REPRESENTATIVE OF YOUR PEOPLE IN GOVERNMENT!!!!

      Dr Ricketts if Monelle is an example to young people especially young women I doh want that example for my children neh. Allu to hypocrite in Dominica. In the pass political parties use to choose remarkable people in the communities. People besides education etc who have shown good example and been community people. Plus hard working and live good lives that the community could look up too. Now UWP picking up all cooshoney that been around the place forming the fool for the longest time. I am not fooled by the all of sudden angels that there trying to pretend to be good now elections coming. I want to see good people that have been showing example all along and have been helping in the community. Dominicans don;t be fooled by those clowns who only now showing up at your homes and n your communities pretending like they care when you’ll have never seen them before. They only showing up now because they need your votes for personal gain. Don’t be fooled by these clowns and vote what you know. Labor for another 5 years

    November 21, 2014

    It is very sad to hear words of the sort from the mouth of the nation’s highest political power. Skerrit is the son of a woman, he is married to a woman, he has four women on platform with him and he is surrounded by women. Why make such an insultive statement against women? Does he know the history of all the women in and around his life. Furthermore, can he honestly say that he, his advisors whether spiritual advisors or others, his candidates, or other close friends, have not played any part in causing other women to fall under the same category of guilt he has placed Ms. Williams. Skerrit should be ashamed of himself and all women that are honest with themselves, whether red or blue should call on Skerrit to resign, if he does not do it voluntarily. In the mean time Ms. Williams, and those other women that have made mistakes in life; I know it hurts but I want you to think of one mighty heroine of faith in the holy bible whose past was far worse than what the DLP are preaching about you and yet God was able to use to rewrite her future. I am referring to the harlot Rahab of Heb.11 :31. However, God was able to use that same harlot to give be the ancestor of the most Holy One to have walked on earth. Much shame on you Skerit!

    It is very unfortunate that politics tend to put a beam in our eyes. For too long Dominican women and girls has been victimized by men. Someone needs to take a stand. Have we proven that Lennox Linton aligations were wrong? It is a known fact that women and children are used as pawns for favor. That needs to stop. Women should not have to grant the male Parl Rep sexual favors in exchange for help. There is no need to sugar coat it.

    On the other hand, whether or not Monelle lost a child does not belong on the political stage. Let us pray that none of Mr. Skerrit wife or concubines have to one day miscarry. It is a known fact that a women will have more spontaneous miscarriages in her life time than live births. Because of that Skerrit should not compare the women based on that. Anyway when mouth open torey does jump out. That is a very uneducated statement to be made by Roosevelt Skerrit.

First in order to gain respect form others we have to start by respecting our selves. As women we have to start by respecting each other and standing with and for each other.
      Women let us not stand by and support other who display any form of disrespect to us. we as women needs to stop making excuses for these men, be it husband, PM, boss, Boyfriend, fathers, brothers. We need to stand together as women and show these men that we will not allow any form of disrespect.. Women lets rise up for each other. Stop supporting these men who think the less of us. I am neither red nor blue, i will not be voting in the up coming election as i do not leave in Dominica. Please put politics aside and do what is right for your yourself, mother, girl of Dominica..

    The leader of the DLP has gone as far as declaring “Stink Day” on December 8th by telling his citizens not to take a shower or bath on that day but instead go cast their votes.

Almost the entire cabinet are sons and daughters of single parent. I am happy to hear the PM say if he had a daughter he would like her to be like Catherine Daniel. She too is a single mum .

Danny Lugay statement in ScottsHead was taken way out of context even with him offering an apology – he was dragged over the coals and they even went as far as to arrest him and bring him before the courts; Skerrit mentioned that Wesley labourites will be responsible for the blood in the streets of Dominica if they should aloow UWP to win- people like you will hide again behind context.

Danny Lugay speech apologized and thats the difference – when you are man enough even if what was said was grossly exagerrated -to stand up to apologise takes a man; but lets examine some of the damaging statements in comparison in addition to Skerrit people like Blackmore who insulted the people of Warner by telling them go so and so in public , like Blackmore who told a certain individual live on DBS to go play with himself and like AUSTRIE WHO TOLD RETIRED CHIEF JUSTICE OF THE OECS SUPREME COURT SIR BRIAN ALLEYNE TO GO LOCK HIMSELF IN A TOILET – talk about damaging and insulting statements bro! the unleashing of vernon on Dr Pascal in the parliament and I can go on and on – so CON it is not just education – it is a fact that the men that you defend has no ettiquette, no class or brought-up-cy boss;

      You are a fool! Two wrongs do not make a right! It simply goes to show that what ever the politician who some people are supporting say, we will endose it.
      There are times in the heat of things we have to take a back seat and look at the bigger picture, and this time it is Dominica , and who is better to represent our interests all over the world.
      This kind of foolish outburst on either side is uncalled for.

      Get the audio (without manipulation) and come again.
      This is what he explicitly stated:
      “There can be no honor in a government that harbors rapist ministers and upholds extortion of sexual services from young people seeking the facilitation of ministers to get personal development assistance from the public purse,” https://dominicanewsonline.com/news/homepage/news/politics/lennox-linton-served-court-papers/
      BTW, what has happened to the court case and most importantly, why did most of the ministers not attend?

      • Titiwi
        November 21, 2014

        Well, eventually only Skerrit did not attend because he had a valid excuse. Mister always has an excuse. How long has that case against Thomson Fontaine be stretched. And what was the deal with Matt Peltier when he was sued for daring to ask about Mr. Skerrit’s assets. That case never got a hearing. I wonder why? Maybe Matt had to sign a non-disclosure statement but I really wish he had proceeded with that case instead. All I’m saying is that it was Skerrit who discontinued it.

      U shouldbread before you speak. U shouldnt have ur head so high up, that it cause u not to c or hear. Is wicked all u wicked. Playing like all u dont know what was said. “Being prostituded” is not the same as being a prostitute. If someeone is trying to bribe you and pay for sexual pleasure; then the person has no respect for u and is trying to prostitute u. That doesnt make u a prostitute.

      Is the same lack of respect they have for our women, thats y they try to get payment in return for favours.

      Guess if u had any respect for women u wldnt be talkin so. Then again your head might be to high up skerrit #[email protected]@#[email protected]#$. It makes u deaf n blind

      I guess ‘Mr.Linton’s’ statement is more appropriate statement then ‘Mr. Skerrit’s’ . In politics people should not be so thin skinned and get offended by what others say. People will dig out dirt about each other, get under each other’s skins just to see how much impact they make on the other party and if one is not prepared to hear this and that about them, then they should not get into politics. Because when dirt starts coming out , is out it’s going eh. Hey, you are in the public’s eye …put on your big boy and big girl pants and get the stepping…grow some balls

    It was wrong for the UWP leaders to embark on an overseas trip and right in STX at the Jam night club Mr. Linton and Mr. Baptiste blatantly stated that Dominican young women are prostituting themselves because of the Skerrit Administration. That was not enough they went to St. Joseph echoing the same sentiments. Mr. Skerrit language may be offensive to some, but calling young Dominican women prostitutes is offensive to all DA women. File a law suit both sides have engage in the culture of denigrating each other.

      @Typical Dominicans – All you these bold-faced liars seem to have no control of the nonsense all you say in the public or on internet platforms. Linton never called any woman a prostitute. He said some ministers of government are prostituting our women for assistance from the public purse.

      I have heard a malicious piece of audio editing which was done to what Lennox said so as to twist what he said into an absolute lie. You people must stop telling these wicked brazen lies.

      We all (UWP, Laborites, Freedomites) know this has and is happening in Dominica. Now if we are condoning this behavior regardless of whom it is coming from then we are doomed as a nation.

Mr. linton said he has facts to prove his statement. i hpe Mr. Skeritt has fact also to prove his statement. this thing can get very ugly guys. whatever agreement was signed was to keep away from personal attack. because if what i was told this statement was stem for is factual. both statement are shameful. whether our young ladies are being prostituted or whether grandparents will be short of grandchildren.

        You know,

        I didn’t even want to place a comment under this article but couldn’t resist because it is just amazing to see how some people are going to all lengths to explain away a blatant statement made about women in Dominica “prostituting” themselves for assistance, an active verb, meaning, they are doing it! Then the same people try to crucify another for making a statement that only those who know the baby story can interpret. I am still wondering what is the baby story and why it is whipping up this storm of protest that I didn’t hear for the accused prostitutes and the blows and public ridicule that Mrs. Alix Boyd Knights received.

        Can someone who knows what the baby story is please explain? It was the same with the cow meat that whipped up a storm, only to learn later it was something to do with stolen cow meat being given refuge on a refrigerator, thus causing more harm to the reputation of the owner of the refrigerator because everyone thereafter tried to find out what the cow meat was about.

        My take is that all negative statements made about other people in public should be avoided by both sides of the political divide and organisations such as the Council of Women and others should be careful, because if my recollection serves me right, the prostituting accusations came after the cow meat issue about which the Council made a public denouncement but kept quiet thereafter. In my view, if you cannot take up all the issues don’t take up any because you compromise your credibility and display your leanings when you do so.

        Peace and love all Dominicans!

    Hello my fellow Dominica n’s, in light of the disgraceful comments passed on our sister Monel, I have this to say
    An insult to Monel is an insult to all Dominican women, this coming from a prime minister. The world is watching and listening to the politics of the nature island. My question is this how would other leaders so of whom may be women take these remarks. More importantly should someone of this nature be leading this country.
