COMMENTARY: The Lennox Linton I know

“Speak softly and carry a big stick.” – Teddy Roosevelt, 26th president of the United States

Throughout history, there have been many leaders who were renowned for their charisma, soaring rhetoric and populist appeal. They offered platitudes and  promises. But sadly, their rhetoric didn’t always lead to results, which is the ultimate barometer by which a leader should be judged.

For the past five years, I have heard whispers and even overt complaints that leader of the opposition Honorable Lennox Linton is anti-social. His detractors say his failure to “smile” and “say hello” consistently is troubling. So this begs the question: Who is this man? After all, his radio personality projects a different image — one of a bubbly, outspoken, endearing and assertive individual.

Mr. Linton is an intriguing man. His patriotism and passion for developing Dominica in all sectors has endeared him to the masses. His weekly talk show — “Between You and Me” — has helped to inform the public as he has undertaken the role of being his country’s de facto ombudsman. He is forthright, honest, inspiring, humorous, kind and candid. Yet he seems to be branded in a negative way of being an introvert. Some believe “introvert” is tantamount to being aloof or even weird. Mr. Linton does not fit any of those descriptions. He is not arrogant, shy or antisocial. Instead, he is an observer, a listener and reserved. That’s his personality, and it would be unfair and farfetched to suggest an introvert should be excluded or disqualified from public office.

Introversion is best described as “a personality trait characterized by a focus on internal feelings rather than on external sources of stimulation.” Although there are still many misconceptions about Mr. Linton’s personality, psychologists have stated that it is important to know that introversion does not mean social anxiety or shyness. Introverts tend to be focused more on internal thoughts, feelings and moods. But that does not mean they are incapable of public speaking or articulating their opinions. Mr. Linton has clearly demonstrated those actions.

Forbes magazine stated:  “In an increasingly distracted and fast-changing world, we need thoughtful, calm leaders whose capacity for focus and observation are absolutely necessary for teams.” It also states that “Introverts are often misunderstood and undervalued in our mostly extroverted workplaces and cultures. Their lack of seeking attention is often misconstrued as lack of ambition, lack of ability to connect with people or lack of being able to influence and lead others.”

That being said, we can safely boast of the thoughtfulness and calmness of the honorable opposition leader. The plight of the country warrants a level-headed leader, one who can be a pragmatist and reassuring presence amid turmoil. History has proven many times that charm and charisma can be entertaining, but those two qualities are often utilized to mask deception.

    Dear readers of DNO

    As much as we are partisan, we must ask ourselves difficult questions and then answer them honestly. This is reality therapy.
    Some questions:
    1. After almost 19 years has Dominica and Dominicans increase in wealth;
    2. Can Dominicans say that we are on par with the other countries in OECS as it relates to the human development index;
    3. Are we last ” KAKA-RAT” in OECS;
    4. Have wee seen infrastructural development where it is most needed; can we say that these projects offer jobs to a wide cross-section of our population;
    5. Has the tourism industry improved on par to St. Lucia, St. Vencient …;
    6. Has Manufacturing and small industries made better;
    7. Can we say we have a better image internationally;
    8. Have we become beggars in our own land;
    9. Can you say that the population has improved in a manner that is commensurate to that of our politicians in Government;
    10. Look around – are you viewing a country rapidly developing;

Where do you get the authority to do the thinking for Dominicans and call such thing reality therapy,wow, such a ludicrous concept.

    To ask someone to support an uneducated man in 2020 is ridiculous.

      Dr. Sebi was an uneducated man. He never went to any school, yet some of the richest people in the world sought his wisdom and his treatments. the US Supreme Court tried to convict him on 2 occasions and he beat on both cases, gaining him more popularity, mostly because of the large number of testimonials from treated and cured patients who spoke on his behalf to support the data and documented medical findings he presented. Remember not one day in any formal learning institution. regurgitating curriculum is one thing. applying life science and rules is another. with all the education our leaders have today, some with more than one doctorate, why are we suffering and fighting to make ends meet in Dominica. Why are our youth desperately longing to leave the country? why are their parents encouraging them to do so as well? Sometimes, doing the same thing and expecting different results is considered madness. Same thing for how many years? and we still struggling.

      • Gary
        April 17, 2019

        Please, why can’t you be more accurate with your facts. The US Supreme Court never tried to convict Dr. Sebi. Dr. Sebi was brought before a New York Criminal Court for announcing to the world that he cures Aids and Cancer. The case was brought about by the New York Medical Association.

        Dr. Sebi, like many others may not have been educated, but were highly intelligent but came from a decent poor family t serve and plan for his people and his country, which came first and a priority. Skerrit`s name must never be mentioned among these so called uneducated men and women, but were highly decent, grew up in families that lectured and nurtured them to be decent, don`t steal, no bobol, no corruption, no thievery. This is the level of the corruption and failures of Skerrit and his bind loyalists government ministers and so called friend within that circle somewhere. Skerrit must Go. He is not mature and intellectual enough to be chairman of a board, a youth group, much oes to him the care of our nature island, that is now ruined and in deep poverty. There has been no socio-economic development taking place in Dominica over the past 19 failed years of Skerrit and his hypocritical, failed Labour corrupt government. They must all go , they have failed us. We wait on Hon Linton.

        As far as education. my own definition is, everyone is educated in whatsoever field they function. If you talk about higher learning then I can understand. Many of our forefathers did not go to school but that doesn’t mean that they were not educated neither were they ignorant.. And to say the truth, they were filled with more wisdom than those who declare that they are educated today. When our fore-parents sawed boards, the wisdom they used to have the log on top and the way they applied the saw was mind-boggling. Can some of our young people to these things today? And that’s just one of the many things they did by applying their wisdom and knowledge.

    Elizabeth, if your definition introvert come from Goggle,why should I argue with you?
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    You, ….. fellow, I did not ask for any argument from you; especially that I did not speak to you.

    Come out from your dark hole of the stone ages, and into the light of contemporary living.

    How can you put down a Giant Media like Google, the World around you (including myself) are using Google Chrome as their browser, and Gmail as their email provider; Google is the Giant “Search and Find” medium of the World, how can you not know these things?

    That is why I will always believe that you are from the Twilight Zone, which is at the bottom of the Ocean. Get rid of your dark, stone age {American Online} AOL and come out into the Light, where you can see and know about the World of today.

      Google, is your teacher, it is not mine; before Google I took English in College, and pass with “B” so that means I am very familiar with the English language, even at the highest grammatical level.

      Even in my day in Kindergarten (stage one) in Dominica in the days of old, they taught us Cambridge English, our curriculum came out of the British system while we were colonized.

      So, if my interpretation, and definition of the word introvert is wrong blame it on the British linguists masters who for all our years of colonization  prepared our school curriculum, including our English curriculum.

      If I am wrong then every written dictionary which gives the same definition is also wrong!

      That means every Oxford Dictionary including the New Oxford American Dictionary is wrong, and every Merriam Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary are also incorrect, and wrong!

      More power to you Elizabeth.

      Question; where did you get your education which caused you to teach school in Dominica?

    Some are insinuating that Roosevelt is charismatic; if he is; that could be very dangerous, because he could be in the control of an evil  spiritual power or personal quality that gives individuals influence or authority over large number of people!

    Charismatic  leaders are usually failures, they never accomplish anything significant in politics, since their charisma causes them to be highly  self-centered; hence they concentrate on themselves, grabbing on to anything they believe is beneficial to themselves, and family.

    They get rich off the blood of the people while the country crumbles in decay, as we have in Dominica.
    The late Erick Gary of Grenada, had plenty of charisma; nevertheless, Grenadians suffered under his regime: people; opponents of his regime began to disappear, ultimately he was overthrown by Maurice  Bishop, whom the communist in Grenada later assassinated, hence we saw the invasion of Grenada.

      April 17, 2019

      Continue:

      The charismatic lead uses compelling charm like showering unsuspecting followers with gifts to inspire devotion to him as we see taking place in Dominica today, and over the past nineteen years!

      When one uses a charm such as a house, food and raw cash; it is almost impossible for the recipients not to vote for the dictator who’s interest is not in the country, rather enriching himself, his colleagues and partners in crime with him.

      Charismatic leaders are selective about the people they chose to be recipients of their gifts, while they who are not in support walk through hell and back in poverty; all due to a lack of employment, the actual majority of the country has no source of income.

      Every citizen of a country have a right to work, I consider that an entitlement, and not a privilege: the dictator; however, is adamant if he keep the people in subjection, in poverty looking up at a dangling carrot that guaranty’s their vote!

        Are you ashamed Bishop was a communist who overthrow Erick Garry who was legitimately elected in a democratic election; only to get murdered by Maurice  Bishop  and his colleague Bernard Coard?

        Are you ashamed that Maurice Bishop, tried to bring and spread communism through out the Windward & Leeward islands, when Dominica Eugenia Charles got Reagan to send the Marines in to invade Grenada, and  vacate the American students that were in a Medical School in Grenada?

        Chills must be running down your miserable spine to realize that when Maurice thought Fidel Castro  and the then Soviet Union was sending troops in to engage in a war against the United States, and the powerless people of Grenada, both Cuba Castro, and the communists regime in Russia, laughed in Bishop’s face, he died as the communists scoundrel he was!

        That’s how Bishop is remembered in history!

        If you want more I’ve got it! Shut up; mind your business, and educate yourself!

Where do you get the authority to make such nonsensical judgment of other people, it’s the same nonsensical method you use to make judgments about The Government, such type of thinking only shows how silly and irrational you are with your thinking.

For example, the more a mother, father, parents scold a child with mark all over the body, the more they feel that they are doing good in disciplining the chid. That does not work. The more Skerrit scolds and insult us Dominicans with his immature, inept behavior the more he, Skerrit remains in the gutter of dirty, opportunistic, failed Bobol political behaviour where I feel, we feel we have been abused and taken for a blind ride by this failed Skerrit.. ..and clowns, blind loyalists like you go about shouting BS that “I Love PM….leave him alone” “Leave him Alone…?” This failed immature political clown, has killed our economy and ruined our reputation.

    Linton is no statesman. He is always too quick to criticize his own country. He never has anything positive to say about Dominica. A person with such a negative view of his own country should never be allowed to lead it. He also harbors a lot of anger and I am afraid that if he becomes PM he will focus on taking revenge against whomever. The last thing that Dominica needs is another Donald Trump. Dominicans should avoid Linton at all costs.

      Jaded, you have nothing to say of your failed Odd Minister Skerrit because there is nothing of substance to attribute your failed Skerrit that you may wish to share with us. Skerrit is not of the intellectual level of Hon Linton and easily cannot match the political decency of Hon Linton. Skerrit is out there without merits giving handouts to all the poor people he has created over the past 19 years. Skerrit is a failure and destroyer of our economy and our people. He has turned, reduced our suffering, struggling mothers, grandmothers to a raided Red Clinic just to gain and buy Loyalty. That you will not see in Hon Linton and his trusted UWP disciplined Team. Skerrit must go.

      Hon Linton is a Stateman, professional, an Honourable Leader of the Opposition, has excelled beyond all doubts, disciplined in his decorum, honest with his politics, dislikes people in the government who abuse states funds, that is, tax payers money. Also dislikes those in and with authority who fleece and steal and abuse states resources. Well, we know who was highly engaged in the Bin and Fertilizer Bobol that was well investigated by Linton brought to the people of Dominica where it was well received and the so called Prime (some say Crime) minister who apparently was involved or may have initiated this crime scheme until Hon. Linton, investigated well and proper and exposed this on going fraud, deception, voleur and abuse of states financial resources The Skerrit’s government was in denial, as usual as now. They condemned and bash Linton. It is when Hon Linton waited on them he delivered the evidence of the abuse of states funds and to this day they hate Linton. Thanks Hon Linton.

    Still using Garvey as my example in regards to Lennox.

    He also was President and one of the directors of the Black Star Line, a shipping and passenger line incorporated:

     Born: Aug 17, 1887 in Saint Ann’s Bay, Jamaica
    Died: Jun 10, 1940 · London, England
     That was approximately 74/79 years ago; Garvey also organized Black people to return to Africa, he was so shy, once he stood to address a massive crowed in Louisiana here in the United States, he was so shy, his knees buckled under him.

    Your philosophy that a Prime Minister have to to into the world to get ideas is a joke.Right now Dominica requires an International Airport, a new born infant today will recognize that.

     Roosevelt went out into the world to seek advise from Ralph Gonzales who told him don’t build any international airport in our country, because we do not need it.

    “shy person” so how can a “shy person” seek the role of a Prime Minister; a person who must go out into the World to seek new ideas and initiatives for the sake of economic and social development of the country which he is representing? (Elizabeth Xavier).

    Nonsense!
     Madam teacher Elizabeth, the business of a Prime Minister is not to go out into the world to seek ideas: From the time one decides they want to be prime minister, they must have a vision for development in the country, hence they develop an outline and implement it in a sequential form.

     To be shy does not mean being a coward, do not remove reserve from the actual definition. 

    Marcus Mosiah Garvey Jr. ONH was a Jamaican-born political leader, publisher, journalist, entrepreneur, and orator.

    He was first President-General of the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League.

      @Man bites dogs, Exaggeration is very, very, destructive against whatever the subject that it is used for.

      I have heard and read too much of exaggeration from Lennox Linton to believe that there is any truth in him

      Such is the first time he spoke as the UWP leader, he said that: “Dominica is in its state of endless decline” under the rulership of the Labour Party.

      Again, some time, in 2017, he said that “Dominica is sitting at the edge of a precipice”. How much more can a person exaggerate?

      But he turns around just a few weeks ago, saying that “the China/Dominica relationship, for the past 15 years”, was very prosperous for Dominica. So which of those three statements are true, coming from the person?

      People of Dominica, are you reading? Are you listening? Are you paying attention to what is taking place around you?

      But that is how we make the choice–any other way will result in a downfall. So be careful

He has been held responsible for untruthful and malicious attacks on the character of Dominicans. Woe be unto Dominica and Dominicans if they ever allow such a careless bloke to ascend to the heights of power. I don’t care about question sabout his work record or his inability to find suitable employment. Many others are in the same unfortunate predicament.

        Prev, Talk is cheap. You`ll just cannot place your failed Skerrit in the same intellectual league as Hon. Linton who exposed Skerrit for whatever reason appears to have placed his hands in the kitty of states funds and that is where the Bin & Fertilizer Bobols was erected under the name of your failed baby Odd Minister. If Skerrit knew as a sitting PM in a prestigious office he would not have aligned with all these silly people who ended playing marble hole with him and as a result Skerrit got caught by Hon. Linton discovery of thievery of states fund under so called failed Skerrit. When Hon Linton exposed the states thievery & his concubines about the Bin & Fertilizer Bobols he and others lied, cried “Mistake” trying to protect Skerrit & involvement of a sitting minister`s brother in the US assigned to purchase the Fertilizer. When Linton exposed their states thievery they said it was a mistake, it was a lie. That is thievery, shame on Skerrit. Exposed. For that they hate Hon…

      So if he will never win, what’s your stress. If he does not win, it is not Linton who will suffer, it will be people like you and poor Dominicans that Skerrit reduced to poverty over the 19 worthless years he served as Odd Minister. That is where your focus should be, on ailing suffering poverty Domininca, not on Linton. Linton who exposed Skerrit and his government`s Bin and Fertilizer thievery is able to get a job anywhere in the Caribbean, Skerrit is not there and not seen as intellectual who is able to get a prestigious job out there, so the election will have to be rigged that failed PM`s will have to stick around to continue kill our nature Isle. So people, who has reduced or nature isle to poverty, our parents receiving handouts in a Red Clinic, and the Welfare Division job is take away from them b Skerrit.

      @marcus, you sound like someone who was born just a few days ago, if you are asking to tell you where Dominica was before PM Skerrit–thinking that it was better then than now.

      You should ask me, and I won’t take you further 1974 when I left and 1979 when I returned for a visit, and maybe right up to the Y2K

      That is the problem with you, young people (I am sure that you are one of those), you all entered Life in Dominica to find milk and honey, you all do not know the struggles, not even PM Skerrit, who is still a young man, of the past years.

      What you all are doing is listening to those who should know better, but instead they are filling up you all’s mind with futility; through their disgusting desire to gain power.

      But God will do what is right for Dominica, through the people, that is for sure.

  20. My Little Take
    April 14, 2019

    All I will say on this subject is that the media should make a much better effort in heling us know all our candidates that want to run for public office. They should tell us about their place of birth, date of birth, their marital status if they are single, married divorce and so on. We need to know their qualification such as their education and they should tell us about their spouse since one day their spouse could also run for office. We need to know if their spouse were ever married and had to divorce. We need to know if their marriage is holy according to God’s word. My point is, if people with money could pay to fake their citizenship, their education, their marriage the time will come when they will pay to win an election. But if they are exposed early we will not allow it to get to the point where our election result is bought. But the media here is weak so we have an uniformed people that vote in the dark.

But whose last name does our PM carries and if it’s his mother’s, why? That PM would not have control over. But why he calling people bastard for? We know the PM got married to Melissa on May 11, 2013 and 7 months later baby was born on Nov. 27, 2013. A normal pregnancy from conception to birth is usually 9 months.

      Roosevelt Skerrit dose not have any academically earned degrees! Bought honorary degrees are not the same as an academically earned degree!

      One cannot apply for a job, in any field, based on a bought bit of paper; that is worthless educationally; you can one!

      As a matter of fact Roosevelt cannot even introduce himself to anybody as “Dr. Roosevelt Skerrit” Nor can he signed his name on a any document, as simple as a letter as Dr. Roosevelt Skerrit.

      A medical doctor however, does not have to add Dr. to his name: Once one see “M. D.” we know that person is a medical doctor.

      Now someone like Thomson Fountain who earned a Ph. D., in economics can indeed sign his name this way: Thomson Fountain Ph. D. and the letters identifying he is an economist!

      Try and find out how many advance GCE level subjects Lennox earned, in spite of what they believe Lennox is much more qualified than Roosevelt to be Prime Minister of Dominica.

Before he got into politics he exposed the bin bobol, land bobol, tax bobol scandal and after he announced himself as a candidate, he on that CBS 60 minutes expose’ he delivered Da from NG Lap Seng, Monfared, Diezani, and many more as they were identified and smoked out. Linton was sued, called treasonous names, brought before the court for lies almost similar to how Jesus was treated. Honestly speaking I would not have done that. His friends became his enemies and some that stood with him denied him like Judas denied Jesus. If I were Linton I would say to hell with Da and move out. But he stood there fighting for DA against a brutal, corrupt, EVIL, lazy, greedy, ungodly, Ahab & Jezebel like government.

    Shimron Hetmyer, the west Indies star batsman was only 4 years when Skerrit and the DLP came into power and, was only 7 years old when Roosevelt became PM. To better understand our regress under Skerrit, see how Hetmyer has progressed and developed while Dominca has gone down the drain. When Skerrit got into government he met a healthy Rosie Douglas as PM and Pierre Charles as deputy PM. Somehow he buried both of them until he became PM. 16 years later he killed and destroyed Dominica while he ascended. He met a strong enough banana industry which provided an income for at least 4,000 persons. He met a coconut industry that provided an income for another 2000. He met a Bayrum and Bello that kept at least 1000 employed and he met a strong Ross University that has at least 3000 employed. 16 years later every single one is gone and left at least 10,000 unemployed. To me it’s not about Linton or UWP but that record of destruction alone motivates me to vote this man out!

        Honesty is not a strong suit of the DLP and their mostly mendicant supporters. In parliament, Linton points out the misguided policies and corrupt practices of the current, galloping dictatorship. Contrarily, the Ministers of government, led by their Chief Bandit, hurl insults, abuse and unverifiable accusations at the opposition, nurses and everyone that doesn’t agree with their debilitating and destructive policies. Go figure!

        And making a whip of cords, he drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and oxen. And he poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables. And he told those who sold the pigeons, “Take these things away; do not make my Father’s house a house of trade.”[Jn 2:13–16]

      @ Anon. When Roosevelt Skerrit came to be Prime minister did he know about Foreign reserves? What skill set did Roosevelt Skerrit have… 1 year of teaching? Please… I find some of us have fowl brains.
      You voted for youth and dimples, remember… not knowledge in foreign reserves and skill set.
      A simple thing Lennox ask Skerrit for, to debate him publicly on the budget and on every occasion he bluntly refused. Because he knows that Lennox will chew him up and spit him out.

    It is said that Mr. Sherrit is more charismatic than Mr. Linton as he shows those two smiling dimples very often. Just a reminder to those with the misconception that a smiling face reflects one’s true character. The world is full of monsters with smiling faces. The true test will come for Mr. Linton when he assumes office after the upcoming election. He certainly has the requisite qualities of a good leader. He is visionary, committed and eloquent, has integrity, passion and political acumen. Conversely, Sherrit is dishonest, lacks vision, accountability and moral integrity. The gentleman is severely myopic, he doesn’t see further than his eyelashes. The choice of leader is as clear as a cloudless sky on a bright sunny day. Vote to secure a better future for yourselves and a more cohesive Dominica. Linton is a far superior leader than the recalcitrant bandit that now occupies the thrown of government.

      Then continue to let your country drown solely based on your opinions of an introvert opposition leader. In another five years we can change from UWP to another newly developed party, or maybe even back to DLP, but right now we need a break from Mr. Skerrit. Things are reallly bad here in Dominica. And giving us things to smitten and fool us is just sad and suspicious. We need to have minds of our own, we can’t continue to let others do the thinking for us. Break free from this cultural-social norm in Dominica. It’s limiting our ability to grow.

      But Linton needs to become an extrovert. Politics turns you into things you never expected, this is a change you should welcome and have already accepted and transitioned into. If you don’t change, you won’t grow.

    How can an “introvert” character who has to go out there to deal with “International Leaders, which is a “must” with a Prime Minister of a country, desire to have that post? Does this not seem the same as being called “Dictatorship”?

    Now I know why they have branded PM Skerrit “dictatorship” even if he is not so; because they know that it is their very character. I don’t think that you should have written that commentary.

    The first trait in a Leader of any group has to be the trait of Love which will produce all the other traits of Life, far more so for the Prime MInister of a Country. But I don’t see or hear that blessed Trait, which is from God, Himself, in the character of Lennox Linton. Sorry!

      Clearly, you do not know the definition of introvert. Many gifted world leaders are introverts including the President of the French Republic. Some very great American Presidents were extroverts:
      1. Thomas Jefferson
      2. Abraham Lincoln
      3. Dwight D. Eisenhower
      4. John F. Kennedy
      5. Barack Obama
      Being an introvert does not disqualify a person for leadership. Please check the DSM-5 for a clinical definition for introversion.

      Linton, by his track record and honesty is the BEST fit for the job presently. We do not need charm and dimples we need:
      1. increase in salary for civil servants – they have not received in 19 years.
      2. a robots agricultural industry
      3. Good industries
      5. Less victimization
      6. A tourism industry that is on par with other Caribbean islands.

      Skerrit, by his performance and track record cannot deliver. After 19 years he has not delivered the above; what makes you think he will if given another five years.

        You are so correct, that’s the way she is; for someone who claimed  she taught school in Dominica in her village to talk such nonsense;  I wonder what she taught, and what grade level children she taught!

        If she taught kindergarten, the infants probable were happy to see her back when they left her class.

        Slinger Francisco ( The Might Sparrow) sang a Calypso in the 60’s about inebriated people (drunkards) he termed Muffers.

        He said they like to use words that a big and long; but, they do not know when they using them wrong!

        Elizabeth is one of those people; she does not know anything about Lennox Linton, nevertheless she live on him like a leach; she hangs on to him like parasite.

        What she does not not know is that introvert also means “one whose personality is characterized by ‘introversion,’ meaning a very reserved, or shy person.

        To Real Dominican:

        Before you judge me, you first need to know who I am. I, myself, am an “introvert” meaning that I like to keep to myself, especially that God has given to me the spiritual gifts of wisdom, understanding, and perception, all I need to attain knowledge of Him and the Life He gave to me.

        So there is nothing wrong with being an “introvert” it is just that, that character does not suit certain professions, such as Mr. Linton is seeking.

        Here is what the writer said about an introvert character: “Introversion is best described as “a personality trait characterized by a focus on internal feelings rather than on external sources of stimulation.”

        Do you believe that this character suits the job of Primary Leadership over a country and her people?

        As an introvert, I have quite a few gifts to keep me contented and comfortable in Life–none of them is the desire to become a Leader of a social group far more for a Prime Minister.

        You people are too …. to understand my wisdom, understanding, and knowledge of Life; that is the problem so I don’t care what you all are saying–especially you!

        You said it yourself: ‘That I use big words” This means that you have no reading comprehension as I have always told you. Don’t blame me for that

      He Roosevelt had on a stupid suit almost yellow with a pare of black shoe and multiple color socks!

      After I suggest here on DNO that someone should advised him that he should dress in dark cloths; he adapted.

      Take a good look at Lennox, he is dressed as a State-man, he looks presentable, you cannot take away that from him.

      That’s the way we are: take a look at all the photographs you have of me in your house, and when you go to talk about traits, of people like Lennox say; “the Linton’s Telemaque (s) ” knows how to dress.

A wise person uses wisdom in what he or she responds to.

Sometimes we talk so much that we are not even aware of the things that we say.

    You keep saying but, but, but, however when it comes to the Leadership, such as Mr. Linton is seeking, there can be no buts, maybe, or hopefully; the people must see the character of the person whom they are asked to choose as their leader before they do so.

    At a church that I was following, there was a pastor who claimed that same “introvert” character and he was a person just like Mr. Linton–wanting to have his own way; cold and unfriendly to newcomers, who never stayed.

    The Church members started to diminish and after 4 years of Pastorship, the Church closed down.

    Excellent, short and precise.
    I really believe that Dictators and cult leaders used their charm and charisma to brainwash the poor and vulnerable.

    The article is lacking in content. It is a regrettable effort in presenting a prospective leader for our beloved country. A better job at promotion would be considered more apt in this scenario.

      And your comments lack meaning bro. You passing yourself of as a smart fellow by using words design to impress but are meaningless when you analyse them. Sorry, you are a fake.

        PIPO, you are obviously either deranged, did not read my comments or you are simply an idiot to arrive at your conclusion, when all I said was that the article was poor in substance.

        I urge you to revisit the article and read it. Has it said anything informative about Mr Linton, a possible future Dominican prime minister? Do you know anything new about Mr Linton?
        Honestly, apart from the self serving platitudes, if someone was to ask you to give them five reasons which you were able to extract from the article, why Mr Clinton should be voted into office, can you really find them within the article? If your answer is yes, I rest my case, if no, then, therein is the thrust of my comment.

      “A better job of promotion would be considered more apt in this scenario.” Ras B, you deserve an award for this sentence as the most absurd ever on DNO.

        Ibo France, I apologize that the quality of my article and its literary quality was difficult for you to fathom. My sincerest apologies sir!

        May I help you to understand that all I was saying is if the article writer was trying to promote Mr Linton as a future leader of Dominica (the scenario); She should have done a better job. I hope this helps.

        No, RasB! In fact, the entire comment is unmeaning. It is the epitome of absurdity. The comment is most ineloquent.

    I see Lennox in the same light. I have known him for over 10 years and he wants nothing but the best for our country and I am convinced he would bring the country forward in a short period of time. I won’t be easy because Skerrit won’t leave a Cent in the coffers. Dominica needs to give Lennox a chance, the alternative is chaos and more poverty to the average citizen.

      We Dominicans must not let Lennox Linton and his clowns 🤡 to fool us, don’t allow Linton to be your prime minister orderwise we will be going backwards to when they were in office. Don’t forget what these monsters did to us they even went out to put listening devices in offices and homes of people. Dominicans are much more better of today than when so-called Workers clowns were in power, when guys like Letang comes up with disrespectful languages like he did resently we all should take note of what to come if those criminals gets into power there will be enough salt to be such. It will be dog eat dog 🐶

        Man Bite Dogs, alas, woof woof. Some people will get serious heart attack when Skerrit loses the government. Skerrit must not get back in government. He and his blind clowns have destroyed our Domininca enough. We are taking our Isle of beauty back from these fake Isle of ugly and corrupt Labour Government and their failed leadership. Skerrit will go, I bet on this. He has to go and even not go willingly, he needs to go, walk away quietly and go learn a trade where you can be disciplined and no wayward behaviour.

    Pure drivel. The Honourable gentleman cuts a swank cut in his $750 suit but that’s about it. Well he is articulate and verbose too. Ok, and he appears to be a loyal, stable as a family man (if the Nassief connection is glossed over). However anyone who thinks gift of gab is an introvert or humble cannot be crediblae if they claim they know him. Lennox should be judge on his stewardship of the UWPO and his contributions as a parliamentarian. trying to whitewash his history as a known public antagonist and mauvais-langue does a disservice to the man.

      ‘known public antagonist and mauvais-langue’ you say? I think that we as Dominicans have a history of sticking our heads in the sand while the world around us is collapsing and Mr. Linton was the one person who would publicly sound that alarm to wake us up from our slumber. Unfortunately it has taken several years and many embarrassing incidents later for us to slowly realize that the country was going down. Tell me, what of all the embarrassing incidents, have you heard any justifications from the government?
