If Dominicans were having problems trying to figure out living in their beloved nature isle then they will be thoroughly confused once the date for the 2010 elections is announced by the Labour administration; starting what I like to refer to as the “Dog Eat Dog” election campaigns.
With both of the majority parties (UWP and Labour Party) having distinctly different views when it comes to health, education and the general economy and whereas one sees progress, the other has seen a wicked decline in the fortunes of this country.
My humble advice to all Dominicans is “Proceed with Caution” and don’t just hear but listen (carefully), because each one of these “Dog Eat Dog” campaigns are going to be riddled with stark differences, extreme promises in many cases, and will probably lead outsiders to wonder if both individuals are speaking of the same Dominica.
Both, however, agree that crime, particularly corruption within parties is a real problem that needs to be sorted out in a hurry. Sure they blame each other for creating the root causes of the problem but both will find sympathy with their supporters as so many have been affected.
At last, some reality.
