Skerrit exalts Gretta; blasts UWP

Prime minister and DLP leader, Roosevelt Skerrit

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit is confident that Gretta Roberts will win the Grand Fond Constituency seat for the Dominica Labour Party (DLP).

Skerrit was speaking at a DLP rally in Grand Fond on Sunday April 28, 2019 to launch Roberts as the new candidate for that constituency.

He said the new DLP candidates are motivated to serve and when they speak, they do so with sincerity and integrity, depth and determination.

“They (the new candidates) are a fine array of  new patriots that the Dominica Labour Party will be bringing your way in the weeks and months ahead,” he told the DLP gathering.

Describing Gretta as the ideal candidate to win the Morne Jaune/Riviere Cyrique Constituency, he suggested that the opposition to do the honourable thing and concede defeat and focus their attention on winning the other seats, “because Labour and Gretta are winning this constituency ladies and gentlemen”.

Skerrit said that the new candidates are “fresh, new, competent individuals who will take over the heavy lifting from those who will be relieved into more advisory capacities.” He was referring to the 13 members of his team who will not be part of the upcoming election. Many of them are duly elected parliamentary representatives and several are  ministers.

He told supporters, “We are facing perilous times ladies and gentlemen and Labour has the perfect team to lead”.  The prime minister said that with this team the future looks bright and Dominica will be in good hands. “We have not selected an old team, we have composed a purpose driven team – a team for the times”.

 

Skerrit also blasted the United Workers Party, in particular its leader, Lennox Linton. He said if Linton were to become prime minister, Dominica will be “hopeless and in despair”.

He asked where would Linton and the UWP get the money to finance any development in the country.

“Lennox Linton, you are no friend of China; you are no friend of Morocco. You are no friend of Venezuela , Cuba, Trinidad and Tobago; you are no friend of Barbados and you are no friend of Jamaica.”

He asked of his rain-soaked supporters, “I want to know with whom they will form alliances.”

He said if the UWP gets into office, it will end the so-called RED Clinic and shut the doors to the office of the prime minister in the faces Dominicans and warned his followers about the  of the UWP in playing dirty politics tactics being employed by the opposing party in order to win the election.

“The propaganda of the other side look tremendous. They cannot fight us on our record of accomplishments , so they will fight us in the gutter. I expect them to resort to all kinds of skullduggery.” Skerrit stated. “They will hack email, tap into your Facebook and WhatsApp accounts and create all kinds of mischief to confuse voters.”

He advised his followers to resist and resent these types of behavior and told them to challenge the UWP supporters on the issues.

“Challenge them to tackle Labour on the issues; challenge them to come debate your vision for this country with us. Challenge them to be constructive in your criticism and to advance sensible alternatives. Tell them to say where the money will come from to finance all that they will promise,” Skerrit stated.

The DLP leader said the launch at Grand Fond signaled a new era of parliamentary representation with respect to the mode of representation at community level.

    The current state of LIAT and the state of the Skerrit DLP government are the same. They are both suffering from poor management and no matter what they do, they both will end up the same place. The only question to be answered is, which one will get there first! Skerrit depending on LIAT to save him and LIAT depending on Skerrit to save it. They both looking for a straw to grab to but they not getting

    “We are facing perilous times.” (Roosevelt Skerrit).

    Roosevelt don’t you know that we are no longer expecting any perils at this time; you have already caused all the peril’s, hence we are no longer simply exposed to any risks of being injured, you have already caused the damage, by destroying Dominica!

    “where would Linton and the UWP get the money to finance any development in the country.”(Roosevelt Skerrit).

    In a situation like this only a stupid person would ask a listening audience a foolish question like that; unless they themselves have some special source of obtaining money to which no one else have access.

    The question is where will Roosevelt get the money  from to develop the country?

    If Roosevelt Skerrit had a special source bedsides the sale of Dominica passports,  the entire infrastructure of Dominica would be developed; his number one priority in almost twenty years would be the construction of an International Airport.
    Marigot hospital would be…

    He asked where would Linton and the UWP get the money to finance any development in the country. “Lennox Linton, you are no friend of China; you are no friend of Morocco. You are no friend of Venezuela , Cuba, Trinidad and Tobago; you are no friend of Barbados and you are no friend of Jamaica.”

    Prime Minister is this an admission of your failure? You mean to tell me it is with other people and other countries hard work and money that we are depending on to build Dominica? Seriously, this is your long term sustainable and resilient strategy for the development of Dominica? Seriously Dominicans, we are happy to be non-productive and continue to beg to spend other hard working countries money? When do we pay back? What do we pay back? For how long can this failed underdevelopment model last?

      Roosevelt is so stupid, he cannot see his very own stupidity, and incompetence?
      Roosevelt only source of money is the sale of Dominica passports, from which he and his friends, and salesmen and women gets rich.
      Apart from that  a small amount of revenue if generated from customs, and a small amount from people paying income taxes
      Then they bleed people with sale tax, which is not much, since there is a lack of employment, and people are unable to buy anything.
      Roosevelt cannot get one dime to borrow to produce anything on the island that will create employment to employ one single person!
      In the almost twenty years Roosevelt took to destroy Dominica not one single industry foreign or local came to the country, nevertheless we can count how many left!
      The UWP will change the status quo;  they seem to have a development plan; a country cannot borrow forever and not investing into something that will be a revenue generator!

    “He asked where would Linton and the UWP get the money to finance any development in the country.”

    Where do YOU get the money to finance any development in the country? Is it not the country’s money in the first place? If it isn’t the country’s money, why must we be dependent on countries such as China and Morocco? As a matter of fact, WHAT DEVELOPMENT? It’s primarily your party’s fault that we’re so underdeveloped anyways.

    SKERRIT and the Labour Party built a new Dominica after Hurricane Maria.UWP lazy Blue Bugs just talk and talk nothing positive.Skerrit has negociated all projects in Dominica.Linton was fired from DCP because was not qualified to hold that position.He was Deported from Antigua.He was Expelled from the Dominica Grammar School.This IDI cannot debate the Dr. If Linton as chairman of the Public Accounts Committe knows nothing about it how is he going to debate Skerrit.

Skerrit your friend Ralph Gonsalves of St. Vincent took our international airport from you. You Friend Maduro is in serious trouble and you abandoned him. Your friend China took Dominica from you and left you in trouble. Morocco built you a hotel in Portsmouth and it can’t get opened.

    Apparently it has bought to my attention most of the people who post nasty comments about the prime minister Dr Skerrit and his government do not based in or leave in Dominica 🇩🇲 but most likely the US and some parts of the carribbean of Dominican parents workers supporters whom have not been able to travel in case the afforities got hold of those boomboom flies. Labour one love 😍 Skerrit one love 😍 10 more years job done. Do not give that so-called Workers corrupt criminals party, the keys to government house never make that mistake because they will sell off all the furnitures.

    That is a good question…why is the PM afraid of debating Lennox Linton. Why share a room , podium with the head of the desperate “Skerrit must go movement.
    Why put yourself in danger of the leader of “D-Day” , Day of Death movement. Self preservation is a natural attribute of a true leader. A wise man once said that people should avoid desperate men who are prepared to do anything for power and lead people to danger. That people should avoid ugly destructive forces .
    The debate the PM is talking about is the debate of the issues affecting Dominica. Not a person to person debate like a debating society, but positive discussions and conversations on the socioeconomic development of the country. But this is beyond the understanding of opposition gang bangers who only know about insults, fake accusations, demonstrations, obstructions and looting.
    E.g… national or international debates on climate change is not a person to person debate like political debates in USA.

        Thanks Mr Man, one love. Since Lean-oxx came on the political arena with his uninformed members of Parliament we see nothing but the advocacy of chaos trending on terrorism. Personal attacks, and insults is their order of day. That is all they offer, and people fall for their tricks. See how Francis had educated members of medical service giving “free” advise. It looked good on the surface and the recipients benefited. But Francis was using the old Capitalist trick of using others people time and money and showing that you can use “free” to hook customers/clients/ business. It is well used in the dentist field with free examination, free cleaning, free estimates. I could go on but I am not trying to disparage the medical profession. I am just trying to show how good UWP are on tricking people. Look at how quick they got big money to pay Lean-oxx legal bills, how easy they got the deputy of DFP to join them, his child molestation case went limbo .TRICSTERS, LIARS.

    What the dumb people don’t know is that the money that the government get on behalf of Dominica doesn’t belong to the Prime minister, it belong to the people. So which ever govt, is in power it automatically taken over by the ruling party.

    2. I never heard Lennox Linton was hiding international wanted criminal, Aliereza Monfared

    3. I never heard Lennox Linton ever took FRENCH citizenship while a minister of Government or otherwise

    4. I never heard Lennox Linton entered had any secret and crooked deal with his B/dos that resulted in Ross fleeing from Da to Bados. I know Reggie told a lie about that the day before Ross left but most of us forget he was referring to another political leader

    5. I never heard the name of Lennox Linton entering in any deal with Jumbeez that required the blood of our young Dominica men be it in car crash or otherwise.

    6. I never heard the US law enforcement may be interested in Lennox Linton

    7. I never heard The French authorities interested in Linton

    I will repost my same comment on the previous article that mirrored this one.

    “Politics is really a very sharp double-edged sword. None of the parties like sour milk when it lands on their doorsteps. For the past decade plus, I have heard so many things being about the DLP reps, the name calling especially the prime minister. “The lazy outgoing prime minister, thief, manipulator, evil, cult, rapist, human trafficker, little boy, the devil, heartless, wicked, and the list goes on and on… Oh my oh my. Matt can never have a decent conversation without the prime minister’s name especially be brought up a simple discussion on humanitarian work or issues of foreign countries, the “Lazy outgoing incumbent prime minister”, “these manipulative men” come up. Now, everyone is running around flabbergasted because the shoe is on the other foot.”

      Sherrit is a man in front of his adoring supporters. He is a most timid coward to engage Linton , one and one, to his face. What is really preventing the PM from debating Linton, with a nonpartisan moderator, before the upcoming elections strictly on concerns and issues affecting the country? The answer is cowardice. Both men should be asked to articulate a concrete and pragmatic plan of actions to lift the country out of this persistent malaise. The electors should vociferously and relentlessly challenge Mr. Sherrit to debate Mr. Linton. If the PM refuse he should be forever branded as Chicken Sherrit.

    “Lennox Linton, you are no friend of China; you are no friend of Morocco. You are no friend of Venezuela , Cuba, Trinidad and Tobago; you are no friend of Barbados and you are no friend of Jamaica.” Interestingly Skerrit hinted that China and the rest of countries he named might not be friends of Dominica and it’s people but rather, Skerrit’s personal friends. So are we to conclude that the secret MOU he signed with China is between he and China and that’s why he said during the 2014 elections, in Wesley that if we voted UWP, the blood of the country would be on us? Is that we he also said last Sunday that if UWP wins this up coming election there would be uprising and the. UWP would not last 18 months? Has Skerrit planned with China a delivery date and if he is not pm to hand deliver the deal China and his friends would invade Da? That’s frightening people especially in light of what is happening in Venezuela today

      All these countries that the PM mentioned have diplomatic ties with the country of Dominica and not with the individual Roosevelt Sherrit. So whether or not Mr. Sherrit is the prime minister the relationships continue. The PM’s friendship’s argument is infantile.

You make DA looks like HAITI . Patois alone you are hearing when walking on the streets. Instead of brining Educated People to DOMINICA to help develop the island you are so wicked & Greedy for $ to make yourself wealthy. HAITI is so poor you are making each Haitian pay you $400 us Dollar when they arrive at the Airport . Tell us or Show us one project you did with that $?? to help Dominicans earn a monthly Salary so they may be able to feed their Family and leave a happy life.You your Family are the only ones living & enjoying life to the Fullest. Dominica has so many young homeless men no teeth in their mouth. In 15 years in office Where is the dental clinic you have provided to keep their teeth healthy Shame on you. But you red clinic will give them rum $$ and keep them in misery & poverty.

    “Challenge them to tackle Labour on the issues; challenge them to come debate your vision for this country with us…..”. Sherrit’s direct words. These are all time worst for the country under your stewardship and they are incontrovertible: the economic paralysis, the appalling state of healthcare, the anemic agricultural production, light manufacturing has virtually disappeared, serious crimes on the rise, inflation has long outpaced civil servants salary, corruption is ubiquitous in government, transparency and accountability is non existent for this government. I could go on ad nauseam. Mr. Sherrit, why don’t you take your own advice and challenge Mr. Linton to a debate that is strictly issues oriented? Stop curse and debate. An enlightened and informed electorate creates a strong democracy. The NGOs should agitate for this to happen. Then let the people decide. An impartial journalist from a neighboring country who is au fait with the local issues will moderate the debate.

    But wait nuh, so no other government in the history of Dominica ever got funding to do anything in Dominica? Where dat bonafide joker come out nuh.

    Could somebody tell me how the UWP was able to fund & bring to reality the following projects during its 1995 – 2000 reign?

    – Construction of the Pierre Charles Secondary & Castle Bruce Secondary Schools

    – Construction of the financial center in Roseau

    – Numerous road projects were undertaken during that time

    – The Layou Housing project

    – Construction of the Michael Douglas Boulevard, construction of a new wing at the Portsmouth Secondary School(PSS), construction of the public library next to PSS, construction of the food pavilion(aka the Shacks) at Ross

    Just look at the significant things the UWP did for Portsmouth in 4.5 years – now what significant development has Labour done for Portsmouth & the north by extension over the last 19 years?

He will set you up on the pinnacle and show you all the kingdom of this earth and will tell you, all this I will give you and more, if you bow down and worship me. Did he not do that to Jesus? Fortunately Jesus was not for sale and was not greedy for money so Satan did not succeed. So is Skerrit any different? I never question this because I know the truth

    We have seen this movie before Mr. Skerrit. Ms. Gloria Shillingford was a high school teacher, a principal, a community worker, a God fearing person that wanted to bring real change to Wesley and Dominica. Skerrit spoke highly of her many times just as the hypocrite spoke highly of teacher Gretta. But what did he do to her? He went all the way to Canada and brought someone down when he was ready to get rid of her. We all know what happened so people you don’t have to waste time to go watch that movie again because we saw it on the big stage already. Poor teacher Glo was embarrassed, humiliated, crushed and you name it. It’s about money people. These people know Skerrit is not interested in Dominica; all he is interested in is stay in power to hide, just like Monfared was hiding in Dominica for the same reason and maybe more. So he looks for highly respected people, pay them a lot of money to run and to step down when he has no more use for them. See what he did to Pierro wife man

    Where should I begin after reading Sherrit’s pathetic presentation. Sherrit said that the new candidates are “fresh, new, competent individuals who will take over the heavy lifting from those who will be relieved into more advisory capacities.”
    This is unadulterated nonsense. On one hand, these ministers were discarded from Cabinet for being abysmal failures. Only crazy people throw away good things. Sherrit now says that these corrupt, avaricious, incompetent rejects will be re-employed as advisors to the government. This is just to give them a pay cheque to keep them quiet. See what public finances are used for.? Not to increase the piteous minimum wage, civil servants salaries or to fix the numerous leaky, mold infested, public buildings. This is the real reason the country is in such an underdeveloped, dilapidated state. The government’s scarce finances go in the pockets of their most loyal fat cats. No more chance for them. Who can’t hear will feel.

    Certainly! UWP should be blasted at every given opportunity. That had the opportunity to prove to the people that Country and people should be given priority over Party. What did they do after a catastrophic disaster? Zilch! We the people will reject the UWP and reward the DLP for such a remarkable job. PM Skeritt , for the continued transformation of Dominica!

      DC, The opposition desperate gang bangers and looters think that they have a monopoly on bombastic political blasting. That people are afraid of them. As my friend Dice has said…we en afraid of them. We know the are walking with their eyes close with their leader in North America looking for jombie money to finance his campaign. But he is still telling them that they, citizens of Dominica, cannot come home to vote. They are full of duplicity.
      Just wait for election date to be set then the one term party will feel the fire of backlash.

        Pipo you have to be bold to survive the verbal attacks of the hyena and wild dog that make up the opposition gang bangers. Those bold face , no face mobsters can invade a Heads of government conference and get away with it. They can get people to pay their legal fees when the are caught lying. So I should be afraid of them. You have to stand up to bullies with boldness and truth. They are just cowards in judas goat skins.

      Gretta has her accomplishments in her bag Skerrit…… you hoping she will save your face. You should have acknowledge and highlight her accomplishments on the platform…… weren’t you launching her? You launching attacks instead. You not putting your record in de open to prove your party’s worthiness.
      That ting going on your party talk show is not a debate…….. you went to university, you study English… you can’t debate yourself. We all hear you in parliament… twisting de rules with de speaker’s facilitation …. debasing de opposition is not debate!

      You have come a long way…. no more dimples, loud outburst in parliament, divisive, grudge full of the repeated loss of the Salisbury and Marigot constituencies, spiteful…… I mean you just had to mention Lennox Linton so many times in such poor taste as de leader of the country for 15 years.
      Lennox Linton gave you your first interview…..I laugh

      @web, not all he is not afraid; but as a man of integrity, there is no way I can imagine PM Skerrit standing in a debate box with Lennox Linton. As the tall man that he is, that would be stooping way, way, too low. This simply cannot happen!

      Skerrit very well know that Lennox would ask questions that he positively would not want to answer, i.e. CBI accounts, Petro caribe money, Ross affair, travel expenses, 2 diplomatic passports and the list goes on and on. Nothing but uhm and ahm we would hear from Skerrit combined with his famous smile and shifty eyes. Don’t worry Skerrit, soon you will answer those questions. Be sure of that!

      “Lennox Linton, you are no friend of China; you are no friend of Morocco. You are no friend of Venezuela , Cuba, Trinidad and Tobago; you are no friend of Barbados and you are no friend of Jamaica.” that’s why you freely giving Thousands to People now that there nothing left. same way you did he will do much better Venezuela needs help but still helping you. making kids none Dominican just a way of saying silence the hospital needs help just tell us how much do you love DOMINICA…

    And fixing a road that has been begging for a fixing for the last 10-15 years is not progress and success. that is the bare minimum of your tasks. Nowhere have i seen that they have gone above and beyond. nowhere. when i travel and i come back home, i always shake my head because even before Maria the country looked like a dump. Roseau is a complete mess. We pay road tax but our roads and road sides are UGLY! i mean come on. the Roseau market need to serious upgrade, the entry area by Woodridge bay is ugly and needs resurfacing, i could go on and on. and on. they continue to waste oney, then say they have no money, but only certain people does get. man i finish post on that site. Dominica not ready yet. It is a place of mediocrity. We lose

    that whole rally was about lennox linton. they also touched on Gretta a little bit and her opponent from the UWP camp, but the majority of their speeches were about Lennox. But lennox isnt runny for that constituency. When i go to vote i do not see Skerrit or Linton on my ballot. dominicans need to stop voting for one man, then complaining about their parl rep to the one man they voted for who is the PM. Stop putting yourselves in these foolish situations. vote for the man who will make the most difference in your constituency. Because in the end that is who you chose to represent you. and when he doesnt you cry. anyway again i did not hear what plans they have for the area. What is going on with Rosalie bay? what plans are there to uplift Boetica apart from spending millions on a new bridge? What community social programs will be in place. How will you plan to increase the population in that area as well as create sustainable jobs through significant investments? I waiting.

    He said the new DLP candidates are motivated to serve and when they speak, they do so with sincerity and integrity, depth and determination.

    Am I just Dumb or have others been able to see what Dr Skerritt is saying in his statement above? He tacitly criticises his previous MPs. It seems to me that he is saying the previous candidates and MP were not motivated to serve and when they spoke, they did not do so with sincerity, integrity, depth and determination.

    After all against whom is Dr Skerritt comparing his band of newbies?

      Sherrit’s presentation was very very revealing. Read between the lines. He said that if UWP wins the forthcoming elections, they will close down the Red Clinic. The man uses the Red Clinic as a political mouse trap to trap poor people in eternal poverty by giving them crumbs . These people will feel eternally grateful to him for money that does not come from his pocket but from hardworking tax payers, then go and vote for him and his party. UWP must demand a forensic auditing of the country’s finances when they take power.

    More empty promises from Skerritt. God help the people of Grand Fond to open their eyes so they can see the lies and deception this government has perpetrated upon them. For the past 19 years this administration have marginalized the people of Grand Fond and now they asking them for another 5 years to inflict more poverty and government sanctioned dependency.

      Granfond people are smart people and not easily fooled. Granfond people want to be self sufficient and not to receive hand outs especially around election time.
