    All I can add is that not many people who subscribe on DNO do the research (just google) to substantiate their contribution, and then turn around and tell you to do the research and just like Ibo France who gave his knowledge of history and tell me to check his history for him. Circular reasoning. IBO believe he holds a monopoly on intellectual capacity and being jealous that he cannot brag about his academic accomplishments while it was there for all of us to reach out and grab. I will continue to motivate Dominicans to reach out and touch it even if Ibo France believe I should not, but I will continue to motivate our children to do their best and reach out and grab it.

    Accuse Linton for not having degree, then blame degree holders who try to motivate by highlighting accomplishments, for talking about degrees. Ibo is just a jealous hogwash without the desire to motivate! All he can do in take-out maypwee!

    I CAN’T BREATHE!

    So many knees on my neck: British, the U.S, Canada, France, even little back countries Belgium and Amsterdam. CHOKING!

    The reign as queen King Prince or Princess does not matter if neither of them ever acceoted Christ.
    John 4:12 says for as many as received Christ to them he gave the power to become the sons/daughtersof God. That’s all that matter after death. My condolences to families and friends. Let remember this verse before it’s too late

    She had developed quite an exemplary reputation of goodwill and then threw it away in a single day when she sided with the invasion of Iraq.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 1 Thumb down 11

      You know more than I do apparently. I have never heard the Queen express a political opinion so I would be very interested to know when and were she is supposed to have expressed a public opinion on the invasion of Iraq.

        I think Colonist confuses that with Tony Blair who was the P.M.of the U.K. at that time and who supported a Bush in the invasion of Iraq, nothing to do with the Queen.

        Statements made by the queen are archived and available for posterity. Prove me wrong by doing your homework. I stand by the recorded voice of Queen Elizabeth 2.

    I have to say this because it irked me this afternoon. Some of us lack self awareness.

    This afternoon, apparently after hearing about Queen Elizabeth π death, Matt of Q95 fame, played the calypso done by the Mighty Sparrow ‘There was a man in me bedroom and I thought it was you’ repeatedly.

    How inappropriate! That song was composed with the sole intention of making sexual innuendos about the genteel lady. Its lyrics are lewd, salacious and licentious. What a crude and insensitive dimwit!

      You got my thumbs up on this one. It was indeed out of place and inappropriate. That is how shallow Matt’s head is from Pointe Michel.

    I used to call her the forever Queen. Her reign spanned many decades. May her heirs be comforted by the peaceful, conciliatory and dignified life that she lived.

    She was an exemplary and exceptional human being and will be missed by many.
    May her soul rest in peace.

    SLEEP Well Her Majesty. Your job on earth is done. NOW the Spirit has gone back to the Maker. IT is very difficult to say RIP to anyone because only those who have truly been born again can sleep in peace and wait for the judgment. NO such place as Pergatory either. Only God knows. SHE was an exceptionally great leader. BEST DRESSED WOMAN. YOUR days on earth are finished. LET us wait for this Well done good and faithful servant. WE constantly sing God Save The Queen. Life and death isbjn the Powervif the tongue. Allow us Lord to search our hearts. FAREWELL to you her majesty.. if we were called home today would we be ready. WE all must die then comes the judgement

    RIP, now does this mean our currency is going to change since we pay homage to her likeness on our currency

      George washington is dead for over a century now last I checked and he’s still on US bills. Most countries have dead leaders immortalized on their currency so no our beautiful queen will remain on our currency for as long as we use it as a reminder of the greatness of the british empire

        As a reminder of the poverty, misery, rampant illiteracy, mass imports of you and us as cheap labor to build Europe for those bums. You’re happy and see that as any humane treatment of people whose land they invaded and stole without remorse? :twisted:

    Elisabeth 2nd was a good and loyal servant to the Commonwealth and Dominica.
    May she rest in peace. She visited Dominica in the 1950’s. My Aunt Mrs Agatha Robinson was selected as local Girl Guide commissioner to greet her. England has helped Dominica through many hurricanes to get back on its feet. Many Dominicans have left Dominica to study and live in England. I am one of them. We wish her successor Charles all the best.

      Roland, duh… clueless, I don’t think you quite get it. So, I’m going to leave this alone.

    While I am expressing my sympathies to the Queen’s family, I would like to remind everyone that the flags were not placed at half-mast for our first Prime Minister.

      I feel your resentment bro but please, that minister did not die in office and was not head of state and he was neither a Queen or a King.
