BRAVO Dominica Freedom Party (DFP)

Alex Bruno

Freedom Party is back!  This recent media headline caught my attention and I am forced to react. I begin by asking the question: Freedom is back from where?  Allow me to answer that; Freedom party never left.  In fact, the party is still solidly in existence and is kept alive through the vision of its founders, the philosophical spirits of its pillars and its well-intentioned members, friends, supporters and affiliates. The DFP was the single most powerful political unit in Dominica and the Caribbean region, to the best of my…

We Must Support the Police

Alex Bruno

The problems of crime and violence will not go away by themselves.  Such issues must be thoroughly addressed and dealt with conclusively in order that the current troubling trends on the island of Dominica are managed. The uncharacteristic nature of the recent violent crimes and gruesome murders in Dominica should be a call to action.  I rise to sound the alarm.  Being acutely aware of the backlash that some before me had to endure by doing the same (calling attention to troubling trends of increased criminality and judicial irregularity in…

PPOD writes an open letter to UWP.

Is there really a viable alternative for the leadership of the country? There seems to be a growing question asked by many Dominicans, “If not Skerrit, then who?”. This question has become even more of a concern since the last parliamentary sitting and recent interview conducted with the Leader of the Opposition. Never before has the Opposition as a whole proven itself to be this unprepared to lead a country, to be an alternative, to be a government in waiting. For us at PPOD, it was obvious at the parliamentary…

Does Dominica lack common sense?

tdn radio blog contributor

by Claudine Williams No matter what current headlines are used to the catch attention of audiences, usually in essence the following text in the article or comments depict several things that indicate that there is an unhealthy atmosphere in Dominica. Unhealthy for our country and just as unhealthy for our people. I don’t want to use big words like “damaging” or “exploding”. I don’t even want to point out what the incidents or circumstances are; I don’t want to point to individuals either. It doesn’t make sense to rub things…

Time for Positive and Responsible Leadership

Time for Positive and Responsible Leadership “No One can fix a flat tire while sitting in the Vehicle” When the individuals which form a government accepts the responsibility to manage a country, the expectation of the citizens is that the policies implemented by this group of people will improve the well-being of the country’s population. In the event that this government fails to meet this basic expectation as promised, the failure is noticed. Every five years or thereabout, the People of Dominica put their trust, confidence, hope, and expectations in…

Gross Misuse of Taxpayers Money

tdn radio blog contributor

Contributor: Claudine Williams Dear supporters and opponents. The rift in our politics and society has deepened to the point where a legal counsel is hired to defend a man who claims to be a leader of a people. Hiring an attorney is not a sign of strength but rather evidence of weakness. It is important to note that, it is taxpayer’s money which is being spent on the hiring of lawyers whose quest is to turn our country into a place of divisive identity politics as it keeps taxpayers money…

Dominican Sons and Daughters

Contributor: Claudine Williams Dear Dominican Sons and Daughters, Given the series of events that have occurred over the last year concerning ambassadors, so-called trade representatives of Dominica, and Offshore Companies legally registered in Dominica, it is clear that this present administration is now morally bankrupt. Such action by the current regime is eroding our freedoms and it is not just up to the police initiate positive action, but all of us must share this responsibility. The police must realize that we are their brothers, sisters, and neighbours. We are all…

On Listening To a Discussion On What Makes a Song Cadence

I try as far as possible to understand why certain statements are made these days on any cultural practice in my country of birth conscious of the fact that they are spoken by men and women with all their senses in tact. Ha-Ha. It is a profound choice to listen. Every now and then I hear a matter being distorted or, in the context of culture and love discourses, I should say, a matter needs be informed further. I seek to enhance a discourse, shifting it a bit from its…
