Linton rejects Isaac’s claim that UWP is anti-nationalism

Linton said he was surprised and a “little hurt” by Isaac’s decision. (File photo)

Opposition Leader and Political Leader of the United Workers Party (UWP), Lennox Linton, has refuted claims by the parliamentary representative for the Roseau constituency, Joseph Isaac, that the party does not have a nationalistic approach to politics.

Isaac made that claim while announcing his decision on Wednesday, to leave the UWP. He said he had failed to get the party to move away from the traditional, opposition approach to politics in favour of a more nationalistic posture despite his efforts to sell the idea to the Leader, the Executive and the General Council of the party.

But Linton has countered Isaac’s criticism by portraying the UWP as a party that prides itself on a “politics with principle” approach in which country comes first at all times.

“When we seek, for example, to protect the national interest from having our diplomatic passports in the hands of bandits all around the world; it is the national interest that we are pursuing, not our personal interest,” Linton stated. “When we talk about jobs for young people, when we talk about equity in sharing relief supplies, equity in distributing material resources, housing material, building material to help people put their lives together, back together after the hurricane, we are talking the politics of principle that is driving our advocacy now for putting country first, making sure the people of the country benefit. That is what we’re about”

According to Linton, it must be some misunderstanding that leads someone to suggest that what the UWP is doing is not in the national interest of the people of Dominica.

“Whether it be campaigning for electoral or insisting that the economy should grow so that young people can find jobs; so that we could get into green energy; so that we could do a better job with this resilient development of Dominica that we are talking about. It is for the benefit of the people and the national interest,” he argued.

The UWP leader admitted to receiving a letter from Isaac on the 31st of May 2017 under confidential cover. He said the letter outlined a number of challenges which Isaac thought that he, Linton, faced personally and recommendations to deal with those challenges.

“I considered it to be confidential but he did indicate in that letter his difficulties with continuing as the Roseau Central MP but we spoke about it as he did speak with other members of the party and since that was May 31st last year, I thought we had gone over that because of the number of initiatives we’d been involved in together including key strategic planning initiatives as to how we were going to be moving forward. A lot has changed since Maria so, maybe this is one of them,” Linton stated.

Linton, who said he considered Isaac a friend, confessed to being surprised and “a little hurt” by Isaac’s decision but thanked his former colleague for his membership in the UWP and for his years of service to the organization.

“And for all of the struggles and the trials and tribulations that he went through, going through the campaign of 2014 and emerging successful on the party ticket and serving with the party in Parliament for the limited times that we were able to stand in the parliament in representation of the interest of our people,” the UWP leader said. “I want to thank him and I want to do so very sincerely and to wish him well in his future endeavours.”

    Not to worry Hon Lennox Linton! These last few days episode is final for me, it’s The last straw that breaks the camel’s back. I’m off, no longer a Labourite and has crossed floor too… my vote is all yours, all UWP from now on. You’ve got my promise.

    April 7, 2018

    Hon Lennox Linton have faith and be guided by my and other Labourites action – we’ve ‘crossed-the-floor’ too. Recent events have really got me thinking, in that all efforts by you and fellow UWP parliamentarians to engage in NATION building ‘post Hurricane Maria’ have fallen on death ears – that’s just not right. If it have to take Hon Joseph Issac to ‘cross-the-floor’ to be entertained by Skerrit then I am Labourite NO more.

    Be encouraged by knowing that many more Labourites are thinking and acting in the same manner as me.

    My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge , I will also reject thee that thou shalt be no priest to me : seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God , I will also forget thy children . As they were increased , so they sinned against me : therefore will I change their glory into shame. They eat up the sin of my people . and they set their heart on their iniquity. and there shall be, like people like priest : and I will punish them for their ways, and reward them Their doing. . For they shall eat and not have enough ; they shall commit whoredom , and shall not increase : Because they have left off to take heed to the Lord . Whoredom and wine and new wine take away their heart . My people ask counsel at their stocks, and their staff declareth unto them ; For the spirit of whoredoms have cause them to err ,and they. have gone a whoring from under their God.

    Do not be disheartened. Be of good courage. The UWP remains in good shape to capture the next general election. It will happen. Continue to be an examplier leader. In your first general election as leader of the party you doubled your seats….next election your party will win enough seats to form the government. Continue to inspire the nation. Continue to do good. You inspired the labor government to create NEP cause you mention your jobs plan. They didn’t do it right and when you are PM, Dominica will prosper. J Isaac will be replaced and UWP will win the Roseau Central seat again.
    J Isaac will remember it is UWP supporters who elected him and were shouting for him when the police arrested him. I wish him will, butt what he did was wrong. Not only what he did but how. Do you think that all the ministers agree with Skerrit, or labor party direction? You think they haven’t wrote letters or exchanged heated words. Moving on without Isaac.
    God bless Dominica

He is someone who can talk and talk may get him somewhere this time. Just wonder how he going to face the madam speaker, before maria they made a fool of themselves in Parliament. In the scriptures people have repented and moved over to the good side. So he is doing himself, family and country some justice there and it takes guts for a man to repent and turn from his ways.

UWP Team is a disciplined team and able t take care of themselves and Dominica. Please don’t distract our very poor people and recognise the failure of Skerrit and his corrupt Labour government and poverty they have inflicted on our people.
      the UWP, minus running away Issac, will remain focus and not run to the heals of inept Skerrit begging for whatever. Issac has shown himself to be vulnerable, weak and only with a loud mouth. T=His thoughts he is unable to convert into action, he therefore has no patience and his latest moves has shown us who and what he is. Skerrit must go and he is to take Issac with him.
      Team UWP, Hon. Linton, please stay focus and do not be distracted. UWP friends and people of Dominica open you eyes and let us reclaim our Dominica.
      There is no other party prepared to take over government but UWP- Hon. Linton…

    Lennox you have turned the UWP into a PRESSURE group rather than a political party with policies to better the lives of Dominicans…. Your campaign for electoral reform is a waste of time with no real end in sight… a political party would say when we win we will change the electoral laws, not getting persons to gather outside Parliament to protest a Bill… go learn what politics is all about!!!!!

  15. “it must be some misunderstanding that leads someone to suggest that what the UWP is doing is not in the national interest of the people of Dominica.” (Lennox Linton).

    Lennox there is no misunderstanding; if that is in reference to Isaac turning turtle turning over on his back steering up into Roosevelt face while he made his deal with Roosevelt. That guy’s action is a stab in the back of the UWP! 

    Isaac simply believe that the UWP does not have a chance of winning the next Election, so he is positioning himself that in the event Roosevelt gets more seats than the UWP, he will side with Roosevelt if he wins as an independent candidate, and form the government.

    It is not a misunderstanding, that is a calculated ploy, a demonic ploy hatched in hell by Roosevelt Skerrit. People should be asking what has Roosevelt done with the donated money to rebuild the country. We have not seen any significant progress yet, he is holding back until election to bribe people with the money!

      Francisco, Lennox is destroying the UWP chances of winning the next general election. I said earlier and I will say it again. These guys are not quitting the party because of any bribe or demonic plot. Lennox has failed to accept constructive criticism from the people you have been listening to him. Lennox is not a community servant. Lennox is a journalist. That is who his acting like. Any man who wants to be at the top and does not put his hand to the plow will not make it. Lennox chances to win the next general election after hurricane Maria huge. But the man is not a people’s person.

      • Well,  brief me by explain to me how he is destroying the party! Give me at least three for-instances!

        If by him suggest that a former member of the party should quite because he was arrested in a crime of pedophilia, I think he saved the reputation of the party One minister in the Labor Labor party government was arrested for the same crime, he was smart enough to resign without Roosevelt firing him or suggest he leave.

        So, I do not understand your theory!

        The idea that there is tribal politics within the UWP is total hogwash; if that is the case there must be tribal politics in all the parties in the country, all three of them!

      Francisco
      For the time being, I would prefer to stick to the facts as presented by Mr. Linton himself which corroborate what Isaac said publicly, that as far back as May 2017 Isaac wrote to him about his discomfort with certain issues within the UWP.

      I listened to UWP supporters on Q95 after Isaac’s resignation and honestly my heart was pounding. I could not believe the venom, threats, hatred and anger which were almost jumping out of the airwaves. The worst part was to think that the guy had literally been in the bowels of the party 24 or 48 hours before.

      It was like a replay of the delegates conference when Joshua Francis was deposed in the most humiliating way from the deputy leader position. I said to myself, what a horrible exposure of the persona of that party. I heard Joshua the day before trying to say to people that the man had made a contribution just wish him well and refrain from attacking him but perhaps that made it worse. Geez!

      • I do not wish to be the devils advocate: nevertheless; that letter might be the first step to set the the cynical, devious plan into motion, hence coordinating the ploy. If he did, how do we know that no actions was taken to resolve whatever the issues were.

        So, let  you and I chuck it up to “wait and see:” if he did not cross side into the Roosevelt Skerrit cabal, then I will have to refute my thoughts about him; but I am almost one hundred percent sure that my analysis on the matter are correct.

        If what he has done is not calculated, he would have waited until the next election, and if he wins, and wish to declare himself an independent member of the House that would have been a different situation, but I am absolutely sure he has predicted that the UWP has no chance of winning a majority in the upcoming election, hence he cut a deal with Roosevelt under the cover of darkness!

But Just to give the people the assurance that you are committed and that you care. But you blew it.. There is nothing wrong with constructive criticism. Especially if it is coming from someone who have been listening and observing. Your focus should be on the constituencies that you want to win. Again you have blown it. Sorry to say that.

    This maybe a difficult time for UWP but when the dust settle every will be fine.

    The party will certain become stronger through those adversities.

    Isaac has shown he was a weak link in the organization where is values are concerns and I believe his move works better for the party’s long term interest.

  28. April 5, 2018

    Mr. Linton and Mr. Francis I admired how you both responded to Mr. Isaac leaving the party it’s sad for the party but most so for the people who introduced him to politic and especially the people who elected him. Isaac should search his heart because his actions and his pass presentation about the Government is off, I ask Isaac what happened when he went to see PM to offer his knowledge and help to rebuild the Island , did you get some assurances that if you cross over you will receive money for your business, and that you will get supplies/ materials you can take to the people and they will forgive you for the pain you inflicted on them. What is amazing is that Isaac was bashing the DLP party and PM now he is asking us to forget all of that as he join them, he has treated the public exactly as his new Boss..” What does it benefit a man to gain the whole world and looses his soul, greed, money and power. The people and Linton should not allow themselves to be taken by Isaac and…

    lol..some Dominicans don’t even know that Linton is keeping a lot of them from becoming slaves in their own country…If Linton were to cross over too is when we would see complete annihilation of that dot in the sea called Dominica…
    Isaac is free to leave. The party goes on working for Dominicans, even the blind ones seething with hate.

      Lennox and Team Dominica will definitely go down in history as Dominicas liberators. Foolish people will sell their soul for a few pieces of silver.

    I want to thank Hon Lennox Linton for his fortitude, patience, professionalism, and leadership in talking too us Dominicans with honesty, fortitude and direction. The issue relating to Joseph Issac is one which is worrying and an attempt to blame the executive of the UWP.
    The UWP has presented itself to be a very honest, transparent, developmentally focus and honest party working hard in the interest of all Dominicans. A reputation that fails this current corrupt labour party headed by a very inept immature Prime Minister who has reduced our Dominica to poverty, lies, deceitfulness, begging and handout.
    Skerrit and his corrupt labour government in no way can raise to the standard of Hon Linton and our UWP. …that is their issue. Skerrit is way below.
    Dominicans be ready like I am for change and to see the UWP soon in government where we can appreciate good government, transparency and accountability. ..a discipline that Skerrit and his political rogues no none of.
    Skerrit must…

      Views Expressed stop praising yourself. Listen and stop talking. You are a disaster as the opposition leader. Your party made the most blunder in the passport sale. , Why does Dominicans need a visa to go to Canada now?. You are a high school dropout, therefore, you don’t have the reasoning skills and common sense to lead our nation. Views Expressed even Steve Wonder could see through you.

        Ask labour part why Dominicans need visa for Canada. It was because of the labour party inaction that Canada imposed visa on Dominica in 2001 almost 2 years after labour won elections.

      Kid on the block you will always remain on the block because I can’t understand for since you a posting comments you cannot come up with something worth while, Opposition Parties haven got money all they have to do is hold the Government to there promises for the Island, if Linton had the money after finishing building up Marigot you would ask yourself where is the capital of Dominica, Dominicans still don’t understand the roll of a Opposition party but thy are the ones who speak about democracy Kid I would say instead of bashing Linton and Marigot up get some education, because that village people don’t beg and they are very educated and smart people , your PM knows very well if he invest there they will take everything from him and turn around and vote him out because they know right from wrong and they know by the sweat of their brow they will eat bread.

        All I can say to you is think FOR A MOMENT of the numbers of elected persons who have left the UWP; don’t you think something is really wrong with that Party? To add insult to injury, a BOLD FACE NO FACE 64 YEAR OLD, WORK IN PROGRESS MAN was PLANTED to lead the party CAUSING MORE CHAOS. All he does is criticize and destroy and this is contribution to the country.

        With Labour pressuring and victimizing people, it’s natural to see weaker people fall. Lennox is the best leader UWP has seen in years because he is above the victimization and rises for the cause of all the disenfranchised. Of course labourites would hate someone who is so against corruption as they revel in it. But Labour will go by the sweat of thy brow.

      I wholeheartedly concur with that observation!!! Something is definitely wrong with the leadership of this party. The definition of insanity is to keep doing the same things over and over hoping for different results. That’s where mr.Lenox Linton is at, in his zeal to attack the opposition he is inadvertently helping the same party he intends to destroy. Very bad leader. Mr. Linton is the head of the uwp if the head is sick the whole body is sick

    Mr. Isaac’s explanation for jumping ship seems dubious. Mr. Skerrit’s tenure as leader is riddled with innumerable wrongdoings, nepotism, cronyism and political victimization. When these are exposed by the Opposition, this should not be construed as narrow partisan politics. In fact, the Opposition would be negligent and even irresponsible not to put such anomalies in the public domain. It’s the present government that practices a brand of politics that divides the nation. That has created the biggest enmity among the people, from the cradle to the grave. In the upcoming elections, the governing party should not be rewarded for forcing the majority of Dominicans to live on the margins of society. Look at what the government is presently doing. Milking the country’s tragedy for political advantageousness. Another hurricane season is imminent, nothing much has been done, just talk, and the people remain even more vulnerable than last year. This is stark incompetence and ineptitude.

    What principle approach? What was the principle approach when Skeritt and St. Jean were taken to court by the UWP to prevent them from sitting in Parliament because they had dual citizenship? At the same time the very principled party was taking Skeritt and St. Jean to court their own party leader Ron Green was a dual citizen all the time he sat in Parliament. Where was the principled approach when millions of dollars were received by the UWP in exchange for diplomatic passports to the donars if they won the election (this claim was made by Sam Raphael who claimed to have had personal knowledge of the transaction, this claim was never denied by Edison James who was the UWP leader at the time). So again, what principle?

      Paul T
      To add a few more. What was the principle for spitting on Joshua Francis and removing him as Deputy leader in the most primitive, babaric way for alleged misconduct. The matter has not yet been tried, he has not been absolved but now he has become principal spokesman for the same party. No one has disassociated themselves from his daily ramblings on Q95.

      What was the principle for having Thompson Fontaine as a potential Minister of finance with all those money and land stories hanging over his head? The investigative journalism was not for that one was it?

      What is the principle for asking Dominicans who they continue to say are the poorest in the region and who still have tarpaulins over their heads to contribute to the payment of the defamation debt of the leader? What is the principled difference between that begging and Skerrit’s begging for the country? At least the latter is not begging publicly for himself. I could go on and on.
