Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.


As a leader, you need to have an ability to provide direction that is clear and concise and does not compromise your followers in any way.

In Dominica, what is often considered to be leadership to a large extent is misguided stewardship that is not focused or trained in the fundamentals that are necessary to lead.

We have leaders who are keen to sideline the effort to their followers, but when its time to apportion blame, the unilaterally exclude themselves and are more than willing to take their followers or charges down a peg or two.

In our democracy, we have a situation where our leaders appoint themselves as demigods who use the power of their positions to compromise many a follower. They’ve no regard for the difficulties that they may bring upon their followers particularly when they cannot understand that their actions can compromise the very bread that their followers earn.

As a developing economy we have to deal with those issues if we are to make any real progress. If we continue to keep do the same things, keep believing all the Pipe Dreams and expecting different results, then we are only fooling ourselves.

Will the real leaders in the land please stand up?

By year end thousand of Caribbean nationals will be kicked out of Barbados by the government. While making the announcement in Barbados’ parliament, Prime Minister David Thompson declared that the levels of illegal immigrant in Barbados were unacceptably high, and is increasingly difficult to control, posing potential negative challenges to the island socio-economy.

While I agree, that no country can tolerate an unrestricted flow of person into its territory, but on the other hand, I believe the policy of expelling Caribbean nationals violates the CARICOM treaty and united spirit it stands for.

Don’t forget that it wasn’t too long ago the heads of Government, including former Barbados Prime Minister Owen Auther attending the 18th Inter-Sessional conference in Jamaica in 2007, agreed of fully implement the Caribbean Single Market and Economy by 2015 and allow full free movement by 2009.

Now five months into 2009, the dreams of free movement throughout the Caribbean have proved to be a only pipe dreams.

When are these heads of government going to understand that disaster-prone, small and vulnerable islands like ours are not blessed with natural resources that can allow us to stand alone. If we can’t find a way soon to put our differences aside, where we can swim together, we will surely drown separately in this global crisis.
