quote of the week: Prime Minister Skerrit

The quote of the week come from the Honourable Prime Minister of Dominica Mr. Roosevelt Skerrit. I just like the whole use of words and characterization in the speech.

It comes at a time when the PM and his government have been under tremendous fire for the procurement of garbage bins among other issues. This quote signals that the PM is not going silently into the night but intends to retaliate, he and his supporters...

No longer shall we, like turtles, draw our body parts and take a beating. Nolonger will we sit silent and allow our members and or our comrades to be preyedupon by our detractors. Henceforth, the battle shall be on. We shall take thefight to those who wish to take us on. We shall hold them accountable or everyact of irresponsibility. We shall draw strength from the Old Testament, inwarning of an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. We shall not lie down andplay dead. Henceforth, on the political front in Dominica, it shall be tit for tat and butter for fat,” he said."

Hon. Roosevelt Skerrit
Prime Minister of Dominica

Disclaimer: The use of the Prime Minister's quote on my blog is not a sign of any politicial alliance, neither is it a sign that I am for/against the Prime Minister or the Dominica Labour Party, I just love the quote and let's just leave it at that.
