The ruling Dominica Labour Party (DLP) will be holding a major public meeting in Lagon on Thursday night and the focus will be on leader of the United Workers Party (UWP), Lennox Linton.

PRO of the DLP, Dr. Philbert Aaron, told DNO that Linton will be the main topic on the agenda.

“It is to expose Lennox Linton for the fake that he is and to bring home to the Dominican people that at this critical point in time, Lennox Linton does not have what it takes to lead this country into a prosperous future,” he said. “Dominica deserves better.”

He said although other features are expected at the meeting, “the risk posed by Lennox Linton” will take center stage.

“So we are inviting people to turn out,” Aaron stated.

The party’s top leadership, including prime minister Roosevelt Skerrit, is expected to address the meeting.

Tonight’s meeting follows closely on the heels of DLP accusations that Linton plagiarized the speech of his colleague, Allen Chastanet of the St. Lucia United Workers Party citing a number of documents which allegedly pointed to Linton using uncredited material from a speech delivered by Chastanet in 2013.

However, Chastanet told DNO that he doesn’t consider the matter plagiarism because both he and Linton share similar ideas, philosophies and visions for their respective countries.

The meeting will be held under the theme ““Dominica Deserves Better/Lennox Linton Must Go!”

A release from the party reads, “The “Dominica Deserves Better/Lennox Linton Must Go!” public meeting is called to discuss the grave developments relating to the candidacy of UWP novice, unqualified Leader, Lennox Linton and the danger his lack of integrity poses for the future prosperity of Dominica. The public meeting will hear an address by DLP Political Leader, Hon. Roosevelt Skerrit, Prime Minister of Dominica at 10: 30 pm. ”

The DLP’s Facebook page is promising the meeting is going to be a “big one.”

“Come to Lagon on Thursday at 7 pm and hear Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit and his Labour party colleagues reveal the facts of who is real and who is fake, who lied to the nation and who told the truth,” the page said. “We have to have minimum standards for leadership in Dominica.”

Thurday night’s meeting is the first major gathering of the DLP since its rally in May in St. Joseph.

    Dominicans I want to call on all of you to keep focus and do not let Skeritt’s DLP distract our attention from the real issues about Dominica’s development.
    How much was said about the roads, health care for the poor, education, sports, agriculture, tourism, air access, and the people of Dominica? So these are the things we should concentrate on and not Lennox.

    DLP gave Lennox a lot of attention last nite on his past life and so called lack of employment?? How many Dominicans are anyways?
    If they look in they closet , most of the ministers themselves never even had a job before Skerro paid them to run in their constituiencies. So tell us about that too!
    Shame on DLP

    All this is distraction by the DLP to sway the innocent minds of our young Dominicans.
    But those of us who know will not be deterred by this wicked and manipulative strategy that Skerrit is trying .
    The DLP has crippled Dominica enough, we have t put a stop to it.
    Let us all come together and change the way things are in Da.

    Imagine party in power calling big meeting to focus on linton. This is just making Linton more popular.
    Instead of dealing with poverty focus on Linton
    Instead of fooling Dominican focus on linton
    Instead of developing the country focus on linton
    Instead of fixing the roads and providing jobs focus on linton
    Instead of telling Dominicans about the real state of the economy focus on linton
    Instead of dishing out state funds to fool poor people focus on Linton
    Instead of stopping the dirty politics focus on linton
    Instead of admitting that this government is the worst in this part of the hemisphere focus on linton
    Instead of explaining to Dominicans why the country is worst than it ever was before focus on linton
    For putting Dominica on the map as one of the poorest countries in the OECS and not one thing is done to make life better for the poor people focus on linton..
    Instead of stopping this mendicant way of life in Dominica, where folks must go to government to pay for just about everything which is degrading indeed focus on Linton.
    Instead of focusing on just demitting office and go and ask God for mercy for letting Dominica down, focus on Linton.
    Linton is not in power so the focus should be on the Government, so allow all the ministers and those just having a good time to come to lagoon and apologise to the people for such poor behaviour. Allow the people to tell you all exactly how they feel about you all.
    Stop the childishness and come to lagoon and speak the truth to the nation……….. Tell them like you all would tell God because God is seeing everything………
    By the way the labour party prides itself on being a Godly government……. because God is goood all the time and thank God for Skerrit……..
    Come lagoon and focus on Linton, You all need to focus on God and his people in ya all charge..
    Sadly, Dominicans will fall for such foolishness……. its very sad and Dominica is becoming a sad place to live and to be identified with….

    Would have loved to be present to hear this. I will read about it on DNO.
    If Linton had stated he will call a meeting to discuss the PM, you all would be elated. It is the other way around and you are out with your critiques. This is why you all are not just people.

    To keep a meeting to focus on Lennox Linton he got to be an important hero, there are other things to be addressed. Let us try to build a stronger nation not distroying character, with electin date unannounced Dominicans already decided who should be the next Prime Minister.

    • September 13, 2014

      Aaron said Lennox Linton will be the main topic on the agenda .
      PM said Lennox Linton pose a risk therefore he must go and that he is a Bastard
      The Government of the Commonwealth of Dominica call a meeting just to expose Lennox Linton
      Now tell us who do you believe came out on top: Team Dominica UWP and it’s leader Lennox Linton
      And who do you believe had egg on their faces DLP and it’s leader Roosevelt Skerrit
      Because they didnt know that the speech where PM used the same words of then Prime minister of Barbados David Thompson in 2007 would come to light, they forgot who they were dealing with he never stop uncovering all that is wrong with the DLP and leader. .
      PM will now know that when you spit above you do not know where it will land
      So DLP and leader Skerrit what do you have to say now !

      Well you have to give the people what they want .. call the election so they cane decide.

    No Matter what the DLP and Skerrit say on Lennox Linton tonight, this so-called garbage meeting will definitely serve as a humongous endorsement for Mr. Linton. So huge that they even have it on their Facebook page? Lennox you big boy! I mean check their release: “The “Dominica Deserves Better/Lennox Linton Must Go!” public meeting.” They must be prophesying because one cannot go if they are not in. The fact that the focus is on Lennox Linton must go, must be implying that someone who is in MUST GO! Well, that person is Skerrit

    But how could an incumbent going into their 15th year in office cannot draw a crowd on their record? Why should they open their mouth to tell people to come to their meeting to hear them talk about Mr. Lennox Linton? Doesn’t that speak volume? I mean we all know and expect them to announce an election date but not even that they can use as a motivating factor to encourage persons to come? Does it ever get any worse than this? How shameful!

  39. September 11, 2014

    Our citizens have been assessed by this current government as intellectually weak and many filled with the venom called “hate” which they feed on with tokens aka occasional stipend to keep them coming like a fowls who knows when it’s feeding time. I feel like we have just entered into a low point as a country when personality is the topic for discussion at a meeting instead of plans and programs. Well, I cannot blame the government entirely because as a people whether we support them or not we have not driven the narrative to where it should be because we allow the politicians to direct it. We need to be more savvy and push the discussion of plans and programs to get them to discuss what we want discussed, and not what they want which is gutter politics. The former will not put food on anyone’s table. Therefore, the participation in tonight’s meeting will tell the politicians the substance we are made of as a people. But, I believe in the law of natural selection and if the writing is on the wall from God despite what happens in our country, God will decides what is best for us and it may be for further abuse and punishment from a party that has shown little to no tolerance towards professionals in the discourse unless it favors them. Lord have your way in this country.

Mr Skerrit cannot be serious. SERIOUSKY, SIR? SERIOUSLY??????? Spending time flinging mepuis? No jobs for the kids leaving school, no scholarships, cost of living is atrocious, ppl cannot save from these measly salaries, Skerrit s getting richer by the minute while ordinary folk are getting poorer and poorer like in a real third world country, but the man is focusing on Lennox Linton, who in my mind is exceedingly brilliant and capable of bringing a new day to Dominca. I am a Christian woman and I pray fervently that God in his infinite mercy, will rid the people of this cruelty of Skerrit and his regime. God help DA!!!!

    The only prosperity that will be lost is that of the pm and his cons. He is quite aware of that an will do and say anything to ensure Lennox does not get in power. Mr pm, even your supporters agree you defrauding the state, but will make excuses.

    Dominica is incomparable to any country in the Caribbean and maybe the world. How can an Ambassador be the Public Relation Officer of a political party which formed the Government in power. He is on radio and in the press bashing the Opposition Party and Political Leader. What is more striking is the fact that he claims to possess a Doctorate of what, not many Dominicans know. In fact, a top radio personality offered lots of money to the Doctor in order to present his University Degree but he has not taken up the challenge. I reckon the Degree must be still in Lome, Togo, in the Gulf of Guinea. Sometimes I wonder who is really the fake, Mr. Linton or the Doctor.

    When a person like, Dr. Philbert Aaron, who is an ambassador and PRO of the DLP can tell DNO that Linton will be the main topic on the agenda. that tells me two things about the DLP mindset:

    1. They think of Dominicans as FOOLS, and as a result, they don’t believe they need to respect our intelligence

    2.They know they have failed us for 15 years and have nothing new to talk about.
    I was planning on listening to their usual garbage meeting just because I know they will announce an election date but seeing they have given us a clue of what to expect, there is no way I will expose the sanctified ears of my children to their nonsense.

So now we celebrate our independence in November ,so he wants to be in the center of it as well. But he will be taught a very serious lesson.

    14 years Lennox been on Skerrit back,you all said nothing;
    Well now is Lennox turn to get his blows.This guy is a scam and needs to be treated for what he is.
    You all UWPites should be a shame of having a Leader like that. While he is pointing finger at the PM he has three pointing at him.
    Tell Lennox,what happens in the dark will reveal in the light;and when you leave in a glass house,don’t throw stones.Better have what belongs to you than steal some one else’s own.

    Boy labour party have guts. If Linton is as bad as Labour says why not relax sit back and enjoy an easy election victory? The heartless fella from Bdos cannot be advising Skerrit to do them nonsense. It’s seems that Labour is actually campaigning for Lennox Linton.

    I knew I was not voting the labour party again. I was not into Lennox Linton. But after having read that a ruling party’s meeting is going to be on Lennox Linton, I have come to the realization that this man is of worth, capacity and tenacity; I have concluded that he is deserving of my vote. On that basis I now call on all swing voters to come with me to the team that Mr Lennox Linton leads. If he was not important and a threat to the Labour Party, they would not have made him the subject of a meeting.

    Among all things that the country needs to address, its Lennox Linton that they chose to be the subject of a rally. Well Lennox I am with you.

    What on earth is in the minds of the leadership of the Dominica Labour Party?
    The meeting will be held under the theme ““Dominica Deserves Better/Lennox Linton Must Go!”
    After 15 years in office that is what it boils down to?
    So the Dominican electorate should put the Dominica Labour Party in power because they do not like Lennox Linton? O.k. then UWP, please allow Nicholas George, or Isaac Baptiste, or anyone among the team to lead the party.
    So the meeting tonight is useless. I am really disappointed.

The government you support is destroying our nation rapidly in the eyes of our neighboring countries and the world at large.

    Go in large crowd tonight and demonstrate your displeasure with the behavior of this outdated super corrupt government. Demand accountability, demand good governance with transparency, tell them that the time is now to get out of office, we deserve far better that what they’ve dished out in the last fifteen years.

Then, to everyone`s shock, the ONLY possible alternative to the current DLP Skerrit, that self-professed symbol of integrity, is found to be cheating and lying (once again). You do not think that this discovery is politically significant, that it matters?

      If you follow politics you would realize that there are stages to a campaign. Until the date of election is set neither party is going to publish the specifics of the platform. At this time, any seasoned politician would choose to destroy the credibility of his opponent, expose his weaknesses and keep him guessing strategy. Political warfare is not about governance.

    To hold a public meeting with a focus like what Attley Aaron is telling the media is, to me and others, clear evidence of recession thinking on the part of the Government. They are broke when it comes to ideas and strategy. Their brains are in recession. There are so many structural issues to be addressed, but the boyz-an-dem are hell bent on trying to discredit a most worthy opponent. It begs the question: If there had not been a media release on alleged plagiarism by Lennox, what would have been discussed at tonight’s meeting?

    After 15 years in office the Labour Party’s winning strategy is Lennox Linton, where must Linton go? He is not in parliament, he is not employed by Labour, as far as I know he is not sleeping with the spouse of any Labour moron, so where does Lennox Linton have to go?
    The Labour Party is in panic mode, they are afraid of Lennox because he will deal with them and they are scared to death. How can a party that was boasting of winning all 21 seats be so scared of a novice, uneducated they say.
    This government must fall the writing is on the wall. Take issue with me for plagiarizing this song but Labour will pay for the bin bobol and the rest of their corrupt practices.

        I would prefer if the DLP was holding a meeting to discuss ways of countering all these reports but instead they are going to talk about Lennox Linton. It is obvious the DLP is out of ideas.

If things are so bad in Dominica, how do you justify wanting to replace the steady hand of the DLP that has kept us afloat (at the very least) with that of a man whose claim to fame is persecution, aggression, and being an imposter? Dominicans know Lennox Linton. They know who he is and what kind of man he is. He is a very unpopular man…always has been. His popularity resides only among those in his party who refuse to clear the glare from their eyes. I have said it before, the DLP has more to fear from a washed-out and decrepit Eddison James at the helm and a Lennox behind him than a Lennox at the helm.

    Mr. Skeritt, why are you so concerned about a man who you claimed is a fake, a man who does not have any leadership qualities, a man who was expelled from school. Mr. Skeritt, let me remind you of what you said about Mr. Linton, “the pitch forking of Linton to the helm of the UWP at this time is an insult to other competent qualified and hard working well enabling members of the UWP, ” Having said all that, do you really believe tomorrow, the economy will move from .05% growth to 5%. Do you really believe by trying to bring down Mr. Linton 45% of the youth are going to find a job. By having a major meeting tonight with only Mr. Linton on your mind, Dominicans are going to care whether Mr. Linton is a plagiarist or not. What Dominicans would like to know is the date of the next General Elections. Dominicans would like to know, what are your plans to move Dominica forward. To take Dominica out of the economical mess, move Dominica to the top country at least in the Windward Islands, like we were in the seventies in cricket. Mr. Linton has said he can produce 5000 jobs in three years, to night tell us how are you going to do better. Mr. Linton has said he will reduce duties on construction material as soon as he gets into office, can you do better or not. Mr. Linton has said he will build an international airport, let us hear your reply to this promise. Tonight a baptism of fire will be laid on Mr. Linton by almost everyone who goes to the platform, tomorrow when the mapuis has disappeared the high price of sugar, bread, fish, milk, codfish, electricity, marpin, will remain the same and desperately we will move on.

      Linton says this, Linton says that. What track record does the guy has apart from some eloquence (which we now prove have mainly been plagiarized) to make you believe that he can actually achieve any of the things he speak about. Most likely these are also ideas stolen from others. You probably would do better believing Pappy and his plans instead of the fraudster Linton. At least Pappy has been preaching this for a much longer time and sounds more convincing.

    It’s going to be another evening/night of more lies, propaganda and deception. When will they address the level of corruption the LABOUR Party has been involved in from day one when they came into office? When are they going to address the poverty they’ve brought on the people by promoting a mendicant society like no other? When are they prepared to tell the people why they favor foreign workers over the locals? The lies will not work anymore.

    Roosevelt Skerrit and his cabinet have zero credibility in the eyes of the God fearing people of Dominica. The supporters who continue to believe and tolerate what they’ve done to the nation, will soon find out all that glitters is not gold. I guess their backs are not grinding against the wall hard enough to start feeling the pains this regime has inflicted on them. Make my day and vote them back into office, then, they’ll understand who has been speaking the truth to them.

    As I’ve said before, this is the most corrupt regime the nation has ever experienced. They continue to get richer and richer while the poor get poorer each day. And for this I’ll say, vote them out before things get worst than it is now.
