We will no longer be used to keep DLP in power – Adelaide Paul of Dominican Diaspora in US

Adelaide Paul at the UWP Eastern Zone Rally held at Laplaine recently

Dominicans living in the Tri-State Area in the United States, which comprises the states of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, have pledged their support to the United Workers Party (UWP) in bringing change to the land of their birth.

Adelaide Paul of the Tri-State Diaspora Association told UWP supporters at a recent political event of the party, that Dominicans living in the United States have mobilized themselves to bring about positive change in Dominica instead of, “being given a bad name”.

“We have mobilized for change and given Team Dominica our full support. We will continue to engage in fund raising and education of the [Dominican] diaspora. We will work with Team Dominica and UWP to bring about a prosperous Dominica,” Paul said.

She vowed that Dominicans living in the US will no longer be used to keep the Dominica Labour Party in power nor be blamed for the state of affairs in the country.

“Diasporans will no more be getting a bad name. No more will we be used to make every foreign earner run from our shores; no more will we be used to be told by the same administration that we are last in every area, last in health care, the worst health system in the entire region, last in agriculture”.

The Portsmouth native who now lives in the Tri-State Region of the USA,  laments the departure of Ross University from Dominica. She said the negative effect of the departure of Ross in the Picard area feels more like eighty cents on the dollar instead of the reported thirty cents on the dollar.

Paul, who recently visited Dominica, said the lack of long term development plans, the absence of critical infrastructure such as an international airport, a marina, proper port, and a deficient health care system, continue to affect the country’s development.

“We are one people, whether we are at home or abroad; we will work together to bring change to Dominica,” she asserted. “It is our movement; it is our time; it is our people; it is the people’s movement and in the diaspora, we will continue to support UWP Team Dominica.”

Paul is encouraging Dominicans in the US to buy their own airline tickets and come to Dominica to vote for the United Workers Party at the upcoming general election.

The next general election in Dominica is constitutionally due by May 2020 but no date has been announced.

    Adelaide, DNO owes you some sort of commission for attracting this kind of traffic to its forum. Wow! You have touched a raw nerve with the DLP rattle rousers. The overseas vote is their lifeline. Your blow has hit them in the solar plexus. It’s a knockout punch. More and more people are seeing the light and are fleeing, in great numbers from this nakedly corrupt regime. Light (UWP) is sure to drive out darkness (DLP). Keep the fire burning Adelaide. Don’t be intimidated by their odorous comments. That’s what they do best. Continue to speak truth to power. You have set the trend for others to follow. Sensible people are now seeing the light and abandoning the DLP sinking ship in droves. Their (DLP) chances of winning the upcoming elections has been reduced to slim to improbable.

The office of Prime Minister has reduced to the Office of this Odd Minister, who has questions to answer on the following states abusive actions:

      3. Red abusive Bobol Clinic on a Wednesday where our poor mothers & families are struggling and where Failed Skerrit have reduced them to begging and calamity.
      4. Odd Minister disrespected the dedicated Welfare Officer and insulted the states Welfare Division responsible for assessing families in need and intervene accordingly. That failed Skerrit has corrupted the system, took over and has a bunch of blind labour so called Skerrit loyalist who has our Dominica in abusive poverty state and therefore buying intellectuals and friends who shout “We Love our PM”, A silly rhetoric with no…

      When a majority of the diasporans were coming down to vote on their hard earned money and some with the country’ money donated by the DLP through its proxies you were all very happy. Now that you and others are sensing a change of allegiance by the same diasporans you all are hurling insults at them. While you are doing that Skerro, Ian, Loreen and others are on theirs knees begging them to still support the failed DLP. Wow! Wow! Wow! SMMFH!

    Voting needs to be restricted to residents of a country. The idea that politicans can buy large numbers of votes by flying in relatives and supporters that have no skin in the game, are not familiar with the issues and will not be affected when the outcome is determined is undemocratic. You should be required to reside in the country or have reason such as overseas service to be eligible to vote.

      Imagine, we in Dominica were not even informed of how much we recieved for TS Erica, Not in terms of relief supplies, nor in terms on money. Worse for Hurricane Maria. IF the government recieves money on our behalf, of a substantial amount within a space of time, i believe it should be reported in the budget. I cannot remember it being mentioned. I do know how much they claimed to have spent of various infrastructure workds. But the money that came in, i have absolutely no idea.

The current leader does not have the intellectual nor political acumen to maneuver the Ship of State in the right direction. The ship is off course stuck on a rocky reef. This is the most opportune time for a new, vibrant crew to take charge.” Most of those persons it is sheer jealousy! Most of those persons is because they want everything for themselves.

      Any political party that is in power for twenty (20) consecutive years has overstayed its time in government. The longer it hangs on to power the more corrupt and dictatorial it gets. It becomes bankrupt of new ideas, misuses the country’s scarce resources, fails to serve the people satisfactorily and becomes unpopular while the entire country disintegrates. Bribery, persecution of the innocent, false promises, intimidation and the military might of the state are used as tools by these desperados to maintain power. The DLP has outlasted its usefulness. They are the problem and not the solution. They have shown a depraved indifference to the lives of those who wallow in abject poverty. I often wonder how anyone with a conscience can support this sinful government. Then again, even the devil has his supporters. Skerrit is well known to be economical with the truth and his dwindling set of supporters follow in lockstep. Questionable, your support for DLP is badly misplaced.

      “Among its plethora of faults and flaws, the main problem of the DLP is leadership. The current leader does not have the intellectual nor political acumen to maneuver the Ship of State in the right direction. The ship is off course stuck on a rocky reef.”
      Well said Sire, we condone this observation. On the top Floor of the Financial Centre, we discuss this daily that Skerrit is a whimsical failure and has not done much for our island Dominica to grow. We are still begging, being bought and Skerrit operates a Red clinic, using States funds and handouts to poor people who come to his office and he is the one who has not created jobs, lost our bananas and crops to sell overseas, now he, Skerrit is practising “Handouts” to our people. That is the one thing Skerrit knows of development, a mentality of deceitfulness, shame, and a discourteous manner…

        %, any political leader who reduces his people to beggars should never remain in power. This is stripping people of their dignity and damaging their self esteem. It’s also a drag on the country’s financial resources which is unsustainable. The Red Clinic conjures up so much negativity: beggary, abject poverty, indignity, laziness, desperation, etc. Dominica is a perfect blueprint as to how not to run a country.

        The brief, truthful answer to you is a resounding “YES”. You seem to be in denial and wish to protect and promote your failed Odd Minister Skerrit to continue to brutally reduce our people and country more to the abyss of poverty, corruption, lies, deception etc. In another country Skerrit would have been removed from the office of Prime Minister and in parliament for obvious accusations of questionable thievery, that is the obvious and visible abuse of states funds and much more. That will be the legacy of your defensive Skerrit whom you all are trying to protect, rather than guide towards proper management and accountability. Your fear also will be that he will be out of office for good. He has failed us big time and it is his fault, your fault, Tony`s fault and all you silly, blind Labour loyalists out there who has helped him to be in this obvious corrupted abyss. Skerrit must go, he has failed us & Dominica and will never be this Odd Minister again. We welcome Hon Lennox Linton.

      Nature Boy, thanks for response, However, be guided that we the people of Dominica after 19 corrupted years in government, Skerrit & his corrupt Labour government has failed us Dominica. 19 years is a long time in government and what do we have to show for it? You, I, the people of Dominica strongly call failed inept Skerrit to account for our states resources and our tax money and other nefarious business that has been undergoing for over 19 years now. For example: 1. Bin Bobol 2) Fertiliser Bobol 3) Red Clinic Bobol 4) Crippled our states natural resources, for eg. a) bananas c) Limes, d) Crops, e) Pepper f) Provisions, no longer sent to UK and the Caribbean. Our farmers have been reduced to poverty and low income.
      This passport scam, we do not fall for. Too much loose, sugar daddy dirty talk. The conclusion is that Skerrit has to be held accountable for the state that our Domininca and people are in. He must never be in government again. We openly Welcome Hon Linton and UWP Team.

NO more heavy produce of limes and provisions. 4. Tourism is down, the sites have deteriorated. The labour government have lost foresight & lost Dominica.

        You need to do some research before posting denigrated thoughts from your head. Lennox Linton claimed that he never worked in Antigua when he was caught by the immigration department and was sent to Dominica. These are his words ” I did not work, I was not employed. They said they found money in my wallet, I don’t know how it got there.” Come on, if its your wallet, wouldn’t you have known what is in there? So, if this was the case, did he work to earn what was in his wallet? If he did work without the required work permit and claimed that he was not employed, HE LIED. period.

    The ignorance of the DLP defenders/enablers coupled with their lack of knowledge of the current state of affairs in Dominica, explains why these corrupt politicians are so emboldened by their support. After 20 years in power, not a single person can say that the quality of their lives have improved economically since these inept cabal have been running the country.
    They could care less that:
    1. Dominica have the 3rd highest unemployment rate in the Caribbean
    2. Our healthcare system is at a third world level
    3. 11% of Dominican children , and 40 % of household live in indigent poverty
    4. Youth unemployment between the ages of 18-25 is at a staggering 70%
    5. No International Airport after 20 years in power
    5. Our roads and bridges are deplorable
    6. Minimum wage is $4.05

Yet, it is obvious that Picard is on its way to becoming a slum.

Also please ask the AG why the PM changed his mind on dumping Ian for Titus.

      “I believe that only the Dominicans currently residing in Dominica should vote; it’s only fair.” IIIucclu, thanks for this. I concur that Dominicans can and should be encouraged to come, but not initiated by this Corrupt labour Party, failed government. DLP under Skerrit are dangerous and will do anything to gather loyalty and patronage. The DLP is a highly corrupt government led by a feeble immature boy who knows and has shown the illiterate and misuse of our states funds and our Dominica government funds. This man must go, if we need a change and a sign of development for our young people coming up.
      Failed Skerrit will be haunted for years and he will have to account for our failed state and abusive use of our sates resources.
      We have had enough of Skerrit and his bind political clowns guiding him into the abys of correction and accounting. That is where we the people are going. Skerrit has to account for the abusive use of our states funds, in & Fertilizer Bobols. Tony Shut…

    If by term “Association” which is a loose term for a Charity, not necessarily registered but for all intents and purposes, then it is against usual laws of many countries to engage in Political matters.
    So I am bit confused as to how an “Association” can undertake a pledge to offer it’s vote to any one political party?
    Furthermore, while the Association members may feel this way, what about the donors and supporters who may not be inclined to support that same affiliation? Will they continue to support?

    Paul, who recently visited Dominica, said the lack of long term development plans, the absence of critical infrastructure such as an international airport, a marina, proper port, and a deficient health care system, continue to affect the country’s development.
    So true, and the root of the problem is failed incompetent Skerrit and his wasted, incompetent bobolist Labour Government and those blind so called Loyalists of Skerrit, who is used and abused because he`s seen as this failed baby politician who has no perspective of socio-economic development and has reduced our Dominica in 19 years to poverty begging and false corrupted loyalty.

The thing is she took the opportunity to come home, let her eyes boil her peas, spoke to many people and witnessed the economic impact the departure of Ross has on Dominica. How many of her critics has done what she did?

    Thank you Mrs. Paul for your bravery and patriotism. You and Labour Queen truly deserve the national award for patriotism. I am not ashamed to say I was once as red as blood but have now decided to put country first. Dca is a failed state and no amount of DLP loyalty can help get it straight.

      Hon. Linton followed the steps Christ, travelled the world, worked in two Caribbean Islands. What has Skerrit got to offer & achieved? Nothing. But The abusive Red Clinic, Bin & Fertlizer Bobols. Linton exposed it. That`s why Skerrit is upset. He lacks political intelligence why our Dominica is poor.

He is well read, articulate, sound & clarity in English, has demonstrated quality and meaningful leadership skills. Linton is focussed, determined, trusted with the people`s states money and strong loyalty to the people and country of Dominica. I know and can commit myself on that. Hon Linton will be a highly professional and caretaker of our states money and resources that we build up and invest our resources to ensure that our people and country are well taken care of & secured for years. A sound, determined and loyal gentleman and his communication and leadership skills are excellent. Dominica desperately needs change and sound leadership that the United Workers Party under Hon Linton`s leadership and trusted UWP Team is able to do. We will see that change and focus on development of our people, villages and Dominica overall.

    I was taught in college by a very erudite lecturer who demanded of us to always be objective. When Mr. Skerrit became prime minister, I was genuinely elated as I saw him as a young and a worthy son of the soil who would, with the guidance of experienced other Cabinet members, take the country and its people to great heights. After observing him for some years my hopes for the betterment of the country and its people came to a screeching halt. I realized that the man was uniquely unsuitable for the position. His character flaws became apparent. The man was overly arrogant, uncouth, dictatorial, corrupt and narcissistic . I also realized that he was thrust in a position that was beyond his intellectual capacity. Thus the reason for Mr. Tony Astaphan, an unelectable political buffoon, is presently the de facto leader of the country. Dominica under Sherri’s stewardship is spiraling downward into oblivion. Dominica is in a distant last place in the sub region. Shame! Shame! Shame!

        I would never disparage intellectualism. However, there are many people with more degrees than a thermometer that don’t know much. Listen to Skerrit without him reading from a prepared speech, talking off the cuff. The man is incoherent, pedestrian, meandering and a downright embarrassment to all Dominicans. Listen to Linton without in any discussion, any impromptu speech, the man is erudite. Steve Jobs , deceased now, former CEO of Apple, Mark Zuckerberg, present CEO of Facebook, do not have any university degrees. Linton is an astute leader, a strategic thinker. He has the right plans to stimulate the economy and has attracted the best caliber of candidates to his team, TEAM DOMINICA. The man unquestionably has what it takes, along with his team, to lead Dominicans out of the wilderness of nothingness where Skerrit has plunged this once envy of the sub region. Linton for PM!

The UWP vision for the country is quite clear.

We talk about this every day up at the Financial Centre and we boldly say that Skerrit, this immature, boyish, fame seeking immature boy no longer, should have never been Prime Minister. He has qualified as this “Odd Minister with the Bobol evidence before us.

A massive Bobolistic puff and blow out.
          Skerrit has blown enough, it`s time he goes, has no energy and is clueless to how to develop our Dominica. I take it you don`t care of the Bin Bobol, etc, that our passports are all over the place with rich people out there fleecing our money & economy and you`re there with your nonsense talk trying to appease me, rather than focus on our suffering poor people and this corrupt Skerrit regime. Where does your loyalty lie? Mine is right here in Dominica and I see and witness too much on gong Bobol by this fail corrupt labour Government. Put this in you pipe and inhale it, tell us how it feels. You`ll hear more of me. lol

      I live in NY and she is definitely not NOT NOT speaking for me and many many many of us.

      Didn’t she see our support for PM and the DLP when he came up here as compared to that of Lennox and the 3/4 dead uwp? THE SAME AMERICA THEY SAID HE CANNOT GO.

      I mean common nah if you want some valuable importance woman just KEEP YOUR MOUTH CLOSE.

      Now I looking to see somewhere where she said “I WAS A LABOURITE AND THEY PAID MY PASSAGE TO COME DOWN TO VOTE. AND I WAS A ILLEGAL VOTER AND I AM NOT DOING IT AGAIN I NOW MOVING TO UWP”.

      But nothing what so ever of substance came out of this.

      So as far as I can see here is GOAT 🐐 MILK SHE IS TRYING TO MAKE OUT OF DOG MILK.

      So madam you mean nothing to us. WE WILL BE GOING DOWN TO VOTE FOR DOMINICA LABOUR PARTY AND OUR PRIME MINISTER DOCTOR DR. ROOSEVELT SKIRRIT

    Alas! The goodly lady has seen the light. Don’t worry about the few detractors, their minds are permanently sealed from the light. For them, reasoning rationally is their greatest challenge. Dominica, with more natural assets than most of the other Caribbean countries, should be a bread basket but due to corruption, no vision, and rudderless leadership it is presently a basket case. The main sources of revenue are the sale of passports which is unsustainable and mendicancy. The leader goes with tin cup in hand mainly to China, Russia and even cash strapped Venezuela. Dominica is not only LAST place in the O.E.C.S. in economic, infrastructural, health and sporting development but LIGHT YEARS behind. It will take generations to catch up. Putting back these corrupt, uncaring, ultra-selfish morons in government is ruinous to future and existence of the country. Twenty (20) straight years of DLP rule is more than enough. Caring Dominicans must work night and day for DLP to GO AWAY!

      Nacinimod! The UWP is by far a superior choice to DLP. No doubt about that! Dominica stature in the region, its physical and economical development or lack thereof, is shamefully appalling. Among its plethora of faults and flaws, the main problem of the DLP is leadership. The current leader does not have the intellectual nor political acumen to maneuver the Ship of State in the right direction. The ship is off course stuck on a rocky reef. This is the most opportune time for a new, vibrant crew to take charge. Team Dominica, the Blue Tidal Wave, with its erudite and professional members, are eager, ready and rearing to get down to business and restore Dominica’s lost pride, re-energize the economy and lift the majority of the long suffering citizens out of poverty.

I am a Dominican residing in the Diaspora and a loyal laborite and Skerritite, who has Never missed an opportunity to vote for PM. However I plan to be more patriotic this next election and that’s why I will vote UWP. As a laborite I must say that I am very disappointed with the direction DA is heading and as such, I can’t put party before country. I am felt more should have been done to save and restore the banana industry and to send farmers back to their farms. To see us lose Ross after 40 years? Sorry any administration that allowed such thing to happen does not deserve to be in power. Then to see how so many of our people are unemployed, while so many foreigners are employed and so much of our money leaving DA is recipe for disaster. On top of that to see how so many have to go to PM for money for everything???.

Are you satisfied thay you have to take a connecting flight from the US to get to Dominica and your suitcase getting to Dominica two days after You? Are you satisfied that we have the best waters for marina development and there isn’t one in Dominica? Are you satisfied that because of the sharp winding roads a 40feet container cannot be driven to Portsmouth from Roseau and a 20 foot will have difficulty navigating the Springfield road.

It is us that you depend on when there is a natural disaster to send food and materials, it is us who drive from near and far to drop supplies after hurricane Maria so we can ease the pain of our fellow Dominicans yet still people believe that just because we do not reside in the country that we are less Dominicans than people who reside on the island. We come home often for all activities and spend our monies here and some of us return to be buried here. I am so sick of this ignorant behavior. Play your politics and go out and find vote for your party and sell their idea but you are not allowed to threaten the lives of Dominicans, and I think DNO need to review your comments and block you so you can refrain from in sighting violence.
