PM Skerrit accuses the UWP of bribery to attract a crowd

The country’s Prime Minister has accused the Opposition United Workers Party (UWP) of bribery.

Roosevelt Skerrit said residents who participated in the Civil Disobedience action organized by the UWP on Monday-were paid to do so.

“The people who you saw in Roseau were paid to come into Roseau with their placards because don’t tell me you are on the door steps of national election…I have not seen a poster of the candidate running for UWP here, I haven’t seen a t-shirt of her but they have posters “Where the money gone”,” he said.

Crowd at “Civil Disobedience” gathering

PM Skerrit made that accusation when he addressed a ceremony to commit letters for 64 new housing units in La Plaine.

He also insinuated that the UWP was recruiting Dominica’s children to engage in destruction.

 “Everything that is done that is good for you, they are criticizing it. They are not coming here to offer you a better way of life; they are not going to tell you how they believe they can help you, to help your children to become better children tomorrow.  They come here to recruit our children to engage in civil disobedience, in destruction,” he said.

Skerrit said the opposition may also be “envious” because of how well Dominica has done under the Citizenship by Investment (CBI) Program.

The prime minister further called out previous governments as “wicked” because according to him, they failed to provide assistance to Dominica.

He stated that they did not assist persons in the aftermath of disasters as there were lack of programs to financially assist persons to rebuild homes as well as programs to help farmers and it is with this present government there have been dramatic improvements in Dominica.

The Dominica Labour Party has been in office for the past twenty years and under its tenure, Dominica suffered several disasters the deadliest being Tropical Storm Ericka and Hurricane Maria.

    Both guilty of bribery. Chupid kids who cannot Organise a sewo in a rum shop. Freedom Party should take the initiative and reassert itself. Dominica political scene is dead null and void! Sell out on every corner!

    I am sooooo tired of the BOTH of you “men” running all over Dominica sullying each other’s name. Politics is nasty, but you guys are at a whole other level of nasty.

    If it were up to me, I’d put you both is a wrestling cage, and let you duke it out. The winner becomes Prime minister. That is the level of immaturity you display and I’d play along. Nuff said.

    If I was accused of wrongdoing, I would take all steps to show my innocence. Show the proof and let the accusers sink themselves. House hand over which also doubles up as a campaign rally is bare face bribery! Then, using the grief of a village to bolster your appeal? That is poor emotional blackmail and bribery. Using the church and village children to make you look good? Awa, no way our people will be fooled. Dominique politics turn real bad. Social media has swallowed the soul and these leaders are emotionally immature. You have the books/receipts so show them! Stop using grief to bolster your appeal! It would be justice if Freedom Party emerged ready and able and throw both Labour and UWP out of the park!

    Liar, liar, your pants are on fire. How many lies has Skerritt told the Dominican people recently? Remember he said he knew who had interfered with the tower at at Melville Hall airport, instead of going to the police he comes out with a damn lie. Look at the number of times he Skerritt has told the Dominican people about an international airport and up till now no sign of said airport. Skerritt also told us that he had multiple parties interested in replacing RUSM in Pickard and we are still waiting. He recently told us that he would provide explanations on the missing $1.2 billion and we continue to wait. What a perpetual liar with no shame. He is the one who wanted to go to Parliament to regularize bribery and treating until the patriots stopped him. No, Skerritt the UWP did not pay anyone to attend the recent peaceful protest in Roseau. You, Skerritt, are the desperate man who would stoop so low as to bribe unemployed red stooges to attend your rally. Disgraceful liar.

    Bribery has to be an element here, but is who doing it more? The opposition have latched on to an honoured non politics memorial plaque in Pointe Michel, advertised the event as a Maria Memorial, used an ex-Pointe Michel mouth piece to finger point and denigrate the incumbent Parl rep of Pointe Michel. All this while the ex Pointe Michel mouthpiece own opposition Parl rep stood by! Her complaints in relation to post Maria assistance could and should be dealt with her Parl rep who has a duty to address his constituents issues. If using the memorial plaque as a focal point was not bad enough, said opposition representative has latched on to the misery served by hurricane Maria on Pointe Michel to gain sympathy votes. What kind of person uses the heartache and suffering of others to bolster his popularity? Bribery? Callous? Despicable parasites? The voters will decide. EMOTIONAL BRIBERY

    I remember as a student at Dominica Grammar School getting caned by a Headmaster ( Goodridge ) and my happiest day was when he gave my schoolmate 6 lashes which he humbly endured then he pulled a pistol out from his bag and told Goodridge , now its your turn ,bend over for yours , he gave the headmaster six of the best, and walked away , leaving us astonished . We never saw Goodridge again, nor did I ever see my school mate again, until I attended a Grammacks show many many years later ,and recognized the bass man .

    I have in the past years been meeting my students (now adults ) and engage them in conversation , expressing regret with the procedures used in admonishing them in the past, to achieve desired results, I am talking of my students now, a lawyer,a doctor, two engineers , carpenters , a policeman , managers of businesses ,fishermen ,builders , as a matter of fact prominent citizens in their respective societies, who have all been thankful for the discipline I instilled in them , yet they always seem surprised when I explain ”this was not the best and most effective application of correctness” I feel proud in being told I played an important role in making them who they are today , and to hear PETER ST.JEAN , as MINISTER of EDUCATION say ”i beat him ” made my skin shiver. SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE to correct that wrong , YOU DAMN BULLY.

    What struck me, and the images confirm it, that this was no political mass rally. No sea of red, blue or other party colours. These people came clearly at their own volition and it is folly for Roosevelt Skerrit to claim that they paid to do so, especially when their protest was mainly against corruption! Just think about it Roosevelt. I’m afraid you lost the plot big time here.

Man I am telling you , The Good Lord has to sort you Out good and proper ”. You have the man in a position, openly declaring that he bullied his students, children who were in no position to retaliate, Man Man Man , as an x teacher myself I wish the day was closer when I could strike Peter myself and ask him if he realize how those children felt .
    No real teacher ”one who is worth his salt will openly admit to having BEAT children .
    Yes I did admonish children myself and, will today, and have been over the last 30 years been telling my very same students, that was not the best way of getting the desired results .No teacher today agrees that beating a child is right ,and the Minister of Education in your Government stands on a public platform and says ”I BEAT HIM” as a student .

    all the houses skerritt build as a complex, belongs to the government.If he wanted the houses to be owned by the people, he would have built them as single family homes, not as complexes. you know what I mean? as a complex when repairs needs to be done on the general building which individual person going to fix the general building?people, stop making skerrit fool all you A government complex is called A project. The same building owns by a cooperation, is called A condominium. single homes is much easier to give poor dominicans to make them home owners. So if skerrit says to people during hand over that they owns the building in a complex, then it is run by a cooperation and a maintenance fee has by charged every month to maintain the building and landscape. if its not so then its a government complex, not owned by the occupants.

    Bribery? Housing with ownership title giveaway is bold face bribery. No charge whatsoever for shelter is bribery. Where is the incentive to work, find work and pay your way? A basic nominal rent of even $10.00 a month would be respectable. However the so called Angel is giving away housing stock and assets is being applauded. A roof over your head following Maria is a basic human right but the give away is bare faced bribery. Even at the handovers the bold face bribery continues. Keys in one hand and remember who made this possible in the ear. Shameful open bribery for the whole world to witness. How can a government give away assets such as housing? What about assets for tomorrow? Overtime, who will pay? 50 years down the line what will our children have to look forward to? These kids in high office need to realise that this is no game. Time out!

    I don’t know if the DLP is doing this because they have nothing to talk about or, because of Divine intervention but they sure talking to us about their Evil they did, though they envelope in a UWP bag. First it was Reggie Austrie, the fake Deputy be PM that told us what he might know about how Roseau was burned down in 2017. He told us is just pay 5 Paris, some drug men and drunk men. Unfortunately police did not see it fit to question Reggie because clearly he seems to know a lot about the incident. Secondly it is Possible PM Skerrit himself that’s telling us UWP paid bribe to people so they could attend the where our $1.2 billion dollars gone to. Like the first, Linton is not a briber and UWP don’t have money. Skerrit is the known briber and has enough money to bribe the whole of Dominica. I just cannot understand why the police not calling him so he could tell them way the money be

    “The people who you saw in Roseau were paid to come into Roseau with their placards”

    PM Skerrit, you Honorable Sir, I don’t like this one above. To me, it puts you in the same class as Lennox Linton, you don’t belong in that class!

    I have always said that God is the Primary control over everything, including those whom He appoints to rule over the “social and economics” situations of a Nation for the sake of growth; Sir you are one of God’s appointees

    And God wants to guide you to do what He planned for our Country and her people; your responsibility is to pay attention to His commands and to obey them

    About that statement above, you should have rebuked the enemy who tried to mess you up–you allowed him to win

    Remember Jesus’ words to Pilate. “You could have done nothing to me had it not given to you from above” Jesus took the blows for our sake because He wanted to do the Will of the Father. He was exalted for that reason Blessings

The amount of irony in that sentence is astounding.

    How can this corrupted  delusional man with his warped mind even suggest that Lennox, or members of the UWP bribes people to attend their meetings.

    Roosevelt is so delusional and corrupt he has forgotten he is the corrupted scamp  who hires  trucks, and whatever transportation at his disposal to transport people from village to village to attend to his meetings.

    Roosevelt pays, people; in addition to giving them food and alcohol to get people to follow him around the country. Has Roosevelt forgotten that just recently he charted a boat to take people dressed in red to Antigua parading them through the streets of St. John’s as if they were Dominicans residing in Antigua supporting him?

    Ask Roosevelt how many of the participants returned to Dominica, and how many stayed in Antigua, because they discover, and anticipate a better life in Antigua!

    Skerrit is like a Molotov cocktail. The man has been ruinous to Dominica’s economy and all its revered institutions. Building a few apartment complexes from CBI money while giving a foreign company an exclusive, no bid contract to build same should be an elephantine national scandal. Evidence of Skerrit’s gross incompetence is all around us. The ECONOMY, HEALTHCARE, FARMING, NETWORK of ROADS & BRIDGES, NATIONAL SECURITY, PARLIAMENT, ELECTORAL SYSTEM, CIVIL SERVICE are all in a bad mess. In any other Caribbean territory, Skerrit could have never made it to the apex of government. The man has great cognitive difficulty to even articulate a proper vision for the country. The only things that he is masterful at are to create severe political division, enrich himself, distort the truth and make false promises that he fully well knows he has no intention of fulfilling. The man is the King of Hyperbole.

    This what this political clown, failed leader has to say: “Skerrit said the opposition may also be “envious” because of how well Dominica has done under the Citizenship by Investment (CBI) Program.” There is no evidence anywhere in Domininca to show any results or success that this failed and incompetent Labour Government has done to develop our poor Dominica and struggling people. Skerrit is the biggest political joker we have witnessed in the Caribbean after Papa and Baby Doc and Eric Gairy of Grenada. These past leaders thought that these islands belonged to them and their families but at the end ruined the country, left their people poor.

As a patriot I keep hearing the members of the UWP talking about there plans all the time, also UWP have a program on I believe a Thursday evening so I don’t understand remark. Also the situation Q95 is having to get permission to broadcast all over the Island makes it more of a problem. Also the so call journalist in D’ica take sides and I agree they do not report on the topics that matters so they need to pull up their sock, I must say the playing field is not balance and that put the UWP at a disadvantage.

When you talking/bringing up politics, or find it necessary to give a speak during these things in particular a Gospel/Worship/Thanksgiving fete, then I mean dude…..THAT sh*t right there, that’s bribery.

    After reading this article 3 things came to mind as possible reasons for such trash : 1. I askef if that pm is on crack or was just drunk. I immediately ruled that out because I know PM doesn’t take crack or get so drunk.
    2. I wondered if pm ever suffered from mental disorder. Again I ruled that out because I know PM doesn’t have a history of mental disorder, though that can happen at anytime.
    3. I said Pm must be very scared and as a result he might be very worried and not sleeping. That’s when I put myself in PM’s place and understood what he going through. Since August 29, pm gave the budget address and Hon. Linton showed us that PM either cannot count or cannot account because he fell short by $1.2 billion dollars. But things got worse for PM when the three international groups he brought down to help him, instead told him he wrong! Things got very worse for him when he saw the large crowd that came to Roseau on a Monday afternoon to ask him where their $1.2 dollars went?

    Skerrit is now down to making false accusations? Well, this is confirmation that our deliverance is really near because accusation and deliverance go hand in hand according to Revelation 12:10
    “Now is the deliverance and the power and The Kingdom of our God, for The Accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them night and day before our God.”
    The prime minister further called out previous governments as “wicked” because according to him, they failed to provide assistance to Dominicans. So PJ, OJ, Mamo, Eddo, Rosie, and Pierro were all wicked Skerrit? Satan would say everyone was bad and I was the only good one. All I will say to Skerrit is what the three Hebrew boys said to Nebuchadnezzar “And Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego answered and said to the King Nebuchadnezzar, O king, we have no need to answer thee in regard to this… Dan. 3:16

    But clearly everything Skerrit said is what we would expect from a defeated foe and that’s exactly how Satan behaves. He knows…

He is behaving as though he is a God, and no one is to oppose him. Four terms in Government is enough for any leader. Power corrupts the best of human beings and Mr.Skerritt is just another man.

PM giving people state resources in exchange for a vote and telling them tbey have to vote you because of all you do for them is bribery. You sound like it is wro g and dispicable.. So my question is what would you like to see happen to Lennox for that bribbery? I lnow for a fact you and your party have been doi g for years.

    Skerrit is the lord of corruption, bribery and scandals. His scandals are not restricted within the borders of Dominica, they are of international infamy. For him to accuse Mr. Linton of bribery can be likened to a crocodile calling a dove ugly. What about the ‘Cool Out’ money, the bright Red Clinic, the plethora of wasteful concerts? Skerrit is beginning to make Donald John Trump look saintly. If one were to look for the synonyms for LIES, BRIBERY and CORRUPTION in a thesaurus, you will find one word for are three – SKERRIT.

The numbers in the crowd on Monday really has unsettled you. Less than two weeks ago you were blasting the UWP and saying that they came out early, used up what little money they had and are now broke and cannot campaign. Today youare saying that they paid people to come out. Where did they get the money from? Did they get the 1.2billion where you hid It? You have not cried lost so i do not believe they found it. You boast of having done so much for Dominica. What had you done prior to hurricanes Irma and Maria? Dominica apparently didn’t exist before then. Today you claim to be doing so much. How much is what you are doing for everyone and how much is just for members of your cult? At what cost are you doing it? What is each individual’s share of the national debt? You MUST go!!!!

      Be reminded that whatever changes such as repairs after hurricane Maria and Irma, the resources (money) used in the efforts to repair damages did not derive from Dominica’s treasury.

      Let it be remembered that all the money came from foreign donations; from governments and private individuals!

      The money from the sale of passports is not enough to pay him and his puppets, and the civil public servants.

      Don’t give Roosevelt any credit that is not due!

    It is a proven fact in the psychology of Human nature that deceptive persons have a very hard time seeing others as honest. This underpins thier paranoia. Therefore, in thier minds they project their pessimistic views onto others. That’s just natural, coming from a very deceptive human being.
    But, in the case of Skerrit, he has to find something to pacify his hurt and disappointment based on what he saw on that faithful Monday, no matter how weird what he says sounds to a rational mind, he believes his lies completely.
    What’s worse is that while the rest of Dominica is waking up, Skerrit continues to slumber in the status quo that he has made himself King in his alternate reality. I hope he remains in his world of ignorance, till the PEOPLE delivers the final SLAP on election day to wake him up.. DON’T get high off your own supplies. A word to the wise is sufficient.
