Skerrit compares UWP team to old “buggy” and “left over soup”

Skerrit dances on stage while engaging supporters at Alfred’s launch

Prime Minster Roosevelt Skerrit has questioned the ability of the United Workers Party (UWP) candidates to bring anything new to the governance of Dominica and described the team as an “old buggy” and “left over soup.”

“They are tonight in Roseau launching a brand new second hand team of candidates, ladies and gentlemen, you know the word ‘buggy’ ladies and gentlemen? That is what the Workers Party is launching tonight… a buggy,  ladies and gentlemen,” The Dominica Labour Party Leader (DLP) told supporters during his address at the launch, on Sunday, of  Octavia Alfred as the DLP candidate for the Castle Bruce Constituency.

He described the UWP team as an unimpressive, worthless opposition that has been rejected repeatedly by voters.

“They are bringing back some left over soup, to the voters of Dominica” he said to the laughter of supporters. “Nobody eats left over cold soup, ladies and gentlemen and that is what the Workers Party is launching tonight.”

Skerrit contends that the top five candidates of the UWP together, are  no match for “Teacher Bonnie” or any other new face that Labour is bringing.

“Look who the UWP is bringing to the dance in this campaign; look at the pitiful team that they are launching this evening.  Their best candidates are in those constituencies they know they cannot win,” he stated.

Skerrit questioned the capability of UWP candidates such as Danny Lugay and Hector John to hold ministerial positions and scoffed at the qualification of the Leader Lennox Linton and his capacity to lead.

“What portfolio is Linton himself qualify to hold? That man has not held down a steady job in over 20 years,” he said.

According to the prime minister, Dominica is in a precarious position after the passing of Hurricane Maria and “we are still in a build back mode; we are in the intensive care unit. We need an A team to pull us out of the mess”.

Skerrit went on to describe the opposition as a recycled political vessel recycled individuals and advisors being offered to serve the people of Dominica and …”Labour Party rejects.”

“There is nothing new or fresh with the United workers Party in 2020,” stated Skerrit who has been in parliament for almost 20 years, at least fifteen of those, as prime minister.

Skerrit told the crowd that the only good candidate the UWP had in 2014 was Joseph Issac, “and that candidate has since seen the light and is tonight sitting on the platform of the Dominica Labour Party”.

Joseph Isaac switched over to the Labour Party after winning on a UWP ticket in 2014.

Skerrit questioned the ability of the UWP to secure funding for all their planned projects as Dominica cannot afford too many loans and fewer than 25,000 Dominicans are contributing to the coffers of the Treasury. Claiming that for the last 20 years, Linton had cursed and ridiculed the Labour party friends and allies, he reiterated that a UWP government would be friendless globally and Linton must get his own friends because, “our friends cannot be your friends.”

He indicated that on the quality and calibre of candidates alone,  the Labour Party has won by 10 wickets.

“Where’s de bell? Where’s de bell ladies and gentlemen? he asked the cheering crowd. “I feel like calling it tonight! I feel like calling it tonight ladies and gentlemen, where is the bell?” he stated in an apparent reference to the election.

The DLP leader who’s been in Parliament for the past 19 years, at least 15 of them as prime minister, told his followers that it matters who will lead the country after this election as the UWP Candidates are “tired, sorry, lousy, incompetent and inadequate to lead.”

    “They are bringing back some left over soup, to the voters of Dominica” he said to the laughter of supporters. “Nobody eats left over cold soup, ladies and gentlemen and that is what the Workers Party is launching tonight.” This man Skerrit is so much a political illiterate who has now fallen on the wayside of politics and good governance that he is now positioned himself amongst the animal farm in a yard conformed to glory-cedar tree thinking with so many weird friends coming from him that the roots of his thinking are planted i the abyss of ignorance, non intellectualism and scared that he is that failure he has nothing new to offer us Dominicans so he has retired t the abyss of others who are his friends advising him with nimmcomffpoof behaviour.
    Skerrit, you are a failure and you will remain that way in the history and achieves of Dominica`s politics. You must Go, it is time, you have overstayed your welcome, it is time to exit this profession that you are unable to concept Bye.

      So true, so disgusting and dirty. There is nothing new to ome out of Skerrit’s thoughts and mouth that he has stooped so low, that is where he and failed corrupt Labour government has rested forever. Skerrit must Go, Corrupt labour Party must go and let us have decent professionals running our nature Isle Dominica.
      Welcome Hon Linton and UWP Professional team to take us away from the Red dirty labour abyss to the heights of decency and good governance.
      Good bye Skerrit get going, you are this failure.. Move on to something else, to some place else.

Get out of our Office, we the tax payers ordered you to. Do you know why, because you are this failed Politician and appears you have laden yourself into this abyss of corruption, poor governance and political hypocrisy. Skerrit should have never been a Prime Minister, let alone an odd Minister.. Skerrit is a failed leader, all he has is flamboyant childish talk, mepuis and political garbage.
        Skerrit Go, Get out, yo have failed us big time. We now look forward to The Right Hon Lennox Linton as Prime Minister and his highly professional UWP Team.
        Skerrit, it is time to go. Get out, you are this big failure and your tie in office was never to serve Domininca and Dominicans, but appears to take care of your lef and be this Childish, Playboy Prime (Odd) Minister.

    Mr. Prime Minister, may I remind you that you are a statesman and as such you must act accordingly. I ask that you do a quick review of regional history to see how the more acclaimed regional leaders who graced the political stage before you acted and conducted themselves in public.

    Would Dame Eugenia, Dr. Williams, Mr. Mitchell, Mr. Patterson, Mr. Barrow, Mr. Manley or even the loquacious Mr. Burnham spew off at the mouth in such a childlike and silly manner? I think you know the answer.

    Let the people see that you have “been there and done that”. Demonstrate that you understand class is not an item that can be delivered next-day-air.

    The illustrious Prime Minister has a house in Florida and takes trips/vacations overseas camouflaged as “fact finding missions” all at taxpayers expense. He has to account for the millions he got in donations from other countries after Hurricane Maria and also the millions from the sale of passports to nefarious characters. His overseas bank accounts should be checked to see how much of that money he deposited into his personal bank accounts. During the hurricane he said the roof of his house was being blown off, how was he able to use the internet during the hurricane when all communications was down? Maybe he was at his house in Florida getting on Facebook and lied about being on Dominica.

    What a shame to hear the prime minister of my beautiful Dominica speak like this on a political platform. Can you imagine if other foreign government leaders listen to this speech? Who is editing them anyhow? I thought Dominica had more intelligent people working in the Prime Minister office. Wow, Wow, wow!!!!. Mr PM, if I were you, I would fix this ASAP!!.
    I was on the fence about my vote, after this speech, I have made up my mind which team I will vote for. The UWP team presented such a wonderful event. No name calling – pure love. So many plans mentioned by the various candidates. So classy. Labour you have lost my support all because of the PM and that horrible distasteful speech on Sunday. that is too bad.

    Do you know what is so wrong with Mr. Skerrit’s speech? That day, you could have randomly pulled any illiterate, intoxicated person off the street, put him on the platform and he could have given the same speech or better than the filthy mouth PM. Mr. Skerrit should go down in the hall of infamy for reducing Dominica to a ghetto, for his odorous tongue, for the corrupt practices and for his blatant ignorance about modern day issues.

    Dear Dominicans

    Wouldyou really vote for this man?

    A man who sees nothing wrong in building a family castle to live in whilst most homes are still under tarpaulin.
    A man whose son is attending one of the most expensive private schools in the US whilst most of the children in DA are living in abject poverty.
    A man whose family is comfortable wearing expensive designer clothes when most Dominicans are begging for the mere essentials.
    A man who refuses to reveal the names of the recipients of Dominican passports and who has exposed DA to all sorts of undesirables.
    A man who rejected Dominica by giving his children US nationality knowing that after he has completely destroyed DA he and his family will have a safe haven.
    A man who despite the huge subsidies received to help the people of Dominica has not used the resources to help those who suffered the disaster of Maria.
    A man who is an absolute oppressor of people by keeping Dominicans poor.
    Reject this man and save DA

      His best friends like China, Venezuela and Cuba are not real friends of the country but rather Skerrits. They used him to achieve their own goals. I would argue, in particular as far as China is concerned, they do more damage to our country in the long run than good.

    When a Prime Minister as to stoop this low and belittle himself, it’s time to pack up and go. He cannot debate Mr. Linton on the issues facing the country. Dominicans of all walks of life should vociferously denounce this type of putrid, rotten politics. The most appalling thing that happened when Skerrit made his odious remarks, his candidates and supporters applauded and screamed in ecstatic delight. Do we still want these unsavory characters to rule over us and have influence on our impressionable children? Let the Blue Tidal Wave wash away all the debris, junk, filth and waste from government.

    Here is a man; one who has proved himself to be the most corrupted incompetent man, proved himself a traitor when he betrayed the late Perrier Charles by going to the the Chines Embassy in Barbados, talking about getting Chines to help Dominica.
    When he was told they can’t deal with him since he is not the prime minister.
    So, he harassed Revere to death, siege power; taking the country  from prosperity, to the poorest island in the Western Hemisphere.
    When a prime minister allow another so called prime minister to influence him not to build an International Airport in his country, because we don’t need it; that is far beyond incompetence!
    When a so called prime minister allowed Ross University School of Medicine to flee Dominica, after operating there for more than forty years, that is incompetence.
    Harris Paints after sixty years; Colgate Palmolive and others; industries Roosevelt chase in order to sell passports: we see incompetence! UWP Candidates are better educated then…

    Right now Skerrit is comparing himself with himself and calling others names he ought to call himself and 2 Corin 10:12 tells us that such people are not wise ” When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise.” Skerrit just needs to understand that he is a thing of the past while Mr. Linton is our future. 15 years of failure and poverty is a lot to endure. In the US where his children were born and are citizens of, no matter how good a president was after 8 years he is a thing of the past and the people have to hire someone else for the future. Skerrit had 15 yrs which is twice the amount of time that a US president had. Example, after 8 yrs of George Bush, he had to leave office at a time when the economy crumbled. Obama came in with very little experience and took important steps to fix the economy. He left after 8 yrs and guess who is reaping the benefits of Obama? Trump is getting all the credit. 15yrs and you want more?…

    A prime minister ought to behave with more decorum and more respect for the position he holds. This man has no class, he has robbed the country blind and is behaving like a dictator. But he will win again because he has the funds (where do they come from, no-one knows) to brainwash and buy the nation. A PM is a reflection of the electorate and this electorate is just as prepared to be bribed as he himself is. You get the leader you deserve.

Your issues oriented campaign is resonating well with reasonable and rational citizens. I said this already but I feel compelled to reiterate. This team is unmatched, arguably, the best political team in the history of Dominica. On the political platform, give the people facts, expound on your visionary plans for each constituency and the country by extension. If this team doesn’t win then Dominica truly deserves to remain a broke, dilapidated, God-forsaken place. Where there is no leadership the people perish. Time to change the change of 2000.

    Dominicans who voted ‘Dr’. Skerrit in office should hang their collective heads in everlasting shame. His presentation was that of a thug. The church, the business sector, all NGOs should verbally drag the ornamental Doctor over white hot coals for his foul-smelling , odorous address. The sheep-like followers of the DLP are always quick to condemn genuine criticisms leveled at Skerrit and his henchmen for their corruption and incompetence. They submit that the country is being harmed by all the negative comments. The foul-mouthed Doctor did more damage to the country’s image during his address yesterday than all the negative comments combined for the last decade. Pastor Alfred and his wife, Bonnie, have handcuffed themselves to a most bellicose, lying and sinful misleader. The hottest part of Hell is reversed for these two heavenly bound people.

    Interesting observation is that the majority of comments here are anti-Skerrit/DLP. Why aren’t more pro-Skerrit/DLP folks defending their reason(s) for supporting him or the DLP?

    A few possible reasons:
    * BWS (Battered woman syndrome). -People who find themselves in an abusive relationship often do not feel safe or happy. Yet, they feel unable to leave for many reasons. These include fear and a belief that they are the cause of the abuse.
    * Metathesiophobia (Fear of change) This phobia makes them unwilling to move, to progress or to change anything from routine.
    * Digital Divide. They do not have access to computer/internet and only radio/tv/hearsay access to DLP propaganda.
    * Guilt. Skerrit/DLP provided personal favors to them in the past so their loyalty remains forever.

    Skerrit is cunning enough to capitalize on and use these reasons to his advantage. It behooves any opposition of DLP to tailor their strategies accordingly.

      This was a wonderful breakdown. Sad thing is many of our Labourite friends who are Dominicans just like us are so programmed its amazingly incredible the way they reason. They complain and criticize the most on the present situation yet still when engaged, they always have some excuse. The excuses are the ones they hear on political platforms and the talk shows (Kairi) which are just baseless. They are just programmed to believe their is nothing better out there. Just accept the mediocrity. DLP spends huge amounts of resources to keep them in that state of oblivion, resources that could have made Dominica an envy of the rest of the Caribbean. I honestly feel sorry for our brothers and sisters. I hope and pray that they eventually will see the light. Supporters of the oppositions are sometimes are too harsh on them, so they get defensive. Pride too plays a roll. Be gentle, be kind, show them love because they do not know better.

So I asked Gucci to help me understand that HiFU thing and to my surprise Gucci told me ” when one wants 6.5 million dollars and another demanding 10.8 million dollars and that news broke on the eve of UWP Roseau launching, it sure was cause for HIFU

    After reading the comments it sums up what I always thought of Skerrit from day one. I never understood what people saw in this man other than dimples he is not that intelligent and he is pretty sneaky.Let it be known I am not Blue and I am not Red, but Dominican and I say UWP all the way.

    MR Gutter Politics, You will stoop that low. Why don’t you try to bring back our Country to where you met it and if you cannot do that, leave us alone. Stop Defaming and demoralizing others for the sake of Fame. Shame on You Mr Skeritt Shame on you and all those who Laugh when you demoralize others. You have no respect for We the People of Dominica. And I wonder How Long it will take for the eyes of My people to open and see the truth. Some Dominicans are so bent on the hand outs and Red clinic, Beggar Lifestyle that you have enslaved upon them. That they see nothing more than that. You have turned Dominica into a war zone. How Long Dominica. How Long…. But God Never Sleeps… He knows the right time. Hold on Dominica, Hold On….

    Mr. PM, election time does not mean the advent of silly season. You are the incumbent and as such to whom much has been given, much is expected, especially in terms of conduct and decorum. Remember the unwritten code of behavior which Honorary P.H.D. recipient is expected to display at all times.

    You have every right to highlight your opponents’ lack of qualification for political office (as it is their right also); however, stare clear of the gutter politics and name calling. Trust that the Dominican electorate is savvy and wise enough to cut through the crap and minutia in order to elect the most worthy candidates.

    By the way, an old buggy can still be serviceable while some in need are very grateful for left-over soup, providing it is has not been around for 19 years.

    It is approximately twenty years, since being a politician. Roosevelt Skerittt is getting older. He has more responsibilities at home, with a family. He is supposed to be an experienced politician, doesn’t he believe it is time to leave the political mapuis alone and behave like a distinguished gentleman and Prime Minister.

    Skerrit compares UWP team to old “buggy” and “left over soup”. I agree with Skerrit because CLEARLY Ian, Reggie, Blackmoore and Roosevelt are the “Buggy left over soup” Skerrit talking about. Surely these are the Four worse Buggy and left over soup Dominica and the Caribbean have seen. So forget about his reverse phycology because that’s how he sees himself and his left over cabinet soup so he jumping in front. He reminds me of a young man I once knew who was Deaf and dumb but he was the first one to call people Tebe. That’s Skerrit that’s how he was raised. As a fellow Vieille case man it is part of our culture to call people name before they call us. If we know our head big we jump in front and call people big head.

    What a Jack A!!! Skerrit is telling the real reason he concocted NEP overnight. It was an election gimmick. Now you holding gun to thier head to vote for you. They are paid with state funds. If it was a genuine peogram geared at development you would not have to make that statement because they would all be happy and gainfully employed. The dishonest lil crook knows darn well NEP does nothing more than to provide a false sense of development so he threatens them. Dang low life. The hatred he spewed about honorable men who put thier country before party because they disagree with him. You disrespect your own while highlighting other countries. Ignorant labourites should know diplomatic relations are btw gov and even if new party comes they will still be there. Skerrit met Venezuela, cuba, canada, and a host of other countries as friends. These folks come for a drunken party and skerrit will sell thier souls. That guy is a sick psychopath.

For a clown to follow someone who has failed indicates that Lin Clown and other similar clowns are lifted in knowledge, the bigger picture, the ignorance of pits and that blindness of what a political party suppose to be.

    Skerrit, sadly I can only get worse for you. It is just a matter of time. The UWP in opposition and with very little financial resources, has attracted 3 medical doctors, three lawyers, two engineers, I.T. specialist and other professionals, whereas you have only brought in a whole set of PRICE IS RIGHT individuals to join the incompetent remnants who you did not dare touch, because they have your number and you call them a buggy.
    Skerrit is so rude, after twenty years all he has to offer is red cloth littering the country. Who is in charge of administering the litter act? The Labour Party should be charged for littering the Nature Isle. If Skerrit had performed over the last 20 years we would have seen his fruits.
    The end for Labour is nigh! With the cleansing of the voters list, his days are numbered. After yesterday, things can only get better for Team Dominica. I appeal to all God fearing Dominicans to join the movement. Time up, Pack Up.

    Who decent and sensible citizen can support a rogue, potty mouthed character who refers to his fellow Dominicans as stale food? How does this help the country? This smelly, nauseating filth emanating from the mouth of the leader of a country should be roundly condemned. Does this man have the moral authority to lecture the unruly young men or women about their discourteous and obscene behavior? No decent minded citizen should associate himself/herself with this pariah leader and his banditry. This is the very reason the country is at the rare end, bottom place, buttocks position in the sub region. This man’s tongue needs to be cleansed with a most potent disinfectant and a wire brush. His presentation was nothing more than a juvenile tantrum. He feels the Blue Tidal Wave gathering momentum. He is most definitely rattled by the extraordinary team put together by Lennox Linton. He knows his stranglehold on power is slipping away.

    With his own words, Skerritt has disqualified himself from being capable of developing the country. He stated that after 20 years of his leadership less than 25,000 are contributing and can contribute to the Treasury. That’s a big “F” you have given yourself on your report card, therefore, step aside for a more capable person to bring about the development of the people and infrastructure for the country to progress. All this double doctorate dude can do is throw mapwis not realizing that he’s denigrating himself. He tells his dohtish followers that other countries and organizations wont give assistance to the UWP government, has he forgotten that China invited Lennox Linton to visit? Oh, boy Skerritt is delusional. The only reason he’s been able to remain in office for so long is according to reports of observer missions, he did unscrupulous things at the last two elections. Skerritt should be ashamed that despite his unfair election victories only 25000 people contribute.

    The PM’s office is ranked the highest office than a doctor, or a judge, or a bank manager. Yet unlike them he needs an opposition to criticize his decisions that he may make them. In the face of regulators, the law, international scrutiny, and worst, you and me. Why the opposition tho. Also, why don’t we install a microphone into every voting booth, and get the voter to say why he voted for the party he did.
