Recall Dominica’s ambassador to the UN – Linton

Linton (left), Henderson

Local talk show host Lennox Linton has called on the Roosevelt Skerrit government to recall their Ambassador to the United Nations (UN).

The Government of Dominica appointed former Parliamentary Representative for St. Joseph and Foreign Affairs Minister Vince Henderson to the position of Ambassador/Permanent Representative of the Commonwealth of Dominica to the United Nations in New York.

But Linton told a gathering recently that Henderson is not only costing the state close to $1-million a year, but he says Henderson has failed to effectively represent Dominica at the UN.

“Henderson has been charged with the responsibility of helping in the advancement of global civilization. That is the sacred duty of Henderson but he doesn’t go to meetings, he doesn’t vote, he is not participating in the work of UN Committee coming out of the general assembly,” Linton asserted.

According to Linton there is no evidence that Henderson voted on any committee matters coming out of the 2010 UN General Assembly.

“He is costing us over a quarter million dollars a year and we cannot get service from our UN Ambassador. If we cannot have the work of the country done as the work of the country is suppose to be done at the UN by a permanent representative, then recall the permanent representative, shut down the mission in the US and spend our money to give us better health care in Dominica. Simple as that,” Linton stated.

Henderson assumed his new position on March 1, 2010.

    i will go with the keeper of the phrase ‘truth and justis will prevail’. that is because every seeker of truth and justice since the birth of man has been villified, crucified, humiliated, persecuted before the truth can come to light.
    people seem to forget their moral standings and beliefs to protect a prime minister how was placed there to be accountable to US and not a selected few.

    “Gregoire was there in the UN how many times did he have meetings in New York/ New Jersey with Dominican unless the PM Was there?”

    Mr Gregoire did perform his duty with pride and dignity. I been living in New Jersey for many years, and i cannot complain about the people represent Dominica in the UN since Mrs Dailey took over. They have been working very hard in keeping us informed about the business of Dominica regularly through the Dominica siserou organization, and the Dominican base Pentecostal church in Newark Newark New Jersey where over four hundred Dominicans worship on a weekly basis. They have been actively working for the people of Dominica in every area. They are always on the go especially Mrs.Babara who constantly warned Dominicans about what they post on the internet about Dominica. She is dedicated to the work.

    Mr Henderson i do not know much about this guy. If the accusation is true he need to step down no time for playing games, but he have been attending functions regularly in New Jersey.These people are not living high life in the United States as many of you think. Should they be doing better?
    yes.
    Please do not misinterpret what Lennox Linton is saying? he might be right. Let us wait and see what the result will be on this issue.

      You are only saying that because Mrs.Dailey is related to you and support your church and your Events. Stop fulling the reader,she is not representing Dominica in the New York area,Ask her when last she had a meeting with the Dominican here in New York. just a few selected individual and about Mr. Henderson the guy just got his foot in the door, How many of us starting a new job know ever thing in a day.

    do you know when they vote they get perks,meaning money. so if he did vote on that I can’t imagine the loan some do you all know that this woman hire their own driver saying that oh we have to give it to a d/can, but do u know that this man has a job already his own business. and he is the one who send everyone that wanted to vote for labor.

    to tell you the truth this need to stop.our money must do right for da people.we must stop doing this wrong is wrong and this is wrong.we spoke about this in 2008 about the counsel general how she is not qualify, she is not,she was put there to make Gregoire life a living hell.and she did it finally they got him out.
    vince is a waste of time.school or not we need to be better represented.

    skerrit dont listen to the voice of the people. its like what he says goes. really, what is this vince doing in NY, NJ. playing big man on poor peoples’ hard earned money. attending big parties/function. this guy wont go to any high level meetings because he knows he has no say. but if we were in his shoes we would all go with the flow. easy money comes.

    • February 26, 2013

      What do you know about the ambassador’s job? Do you know exactly what his portfolio is? Is it Vince who is supposed to pay moneies to the UN? We really need to make more educated comments than that.

      This says a lot. In 2010 the Washington Post nominated mr. Skerrit the 8th. “hottest” world leader, based on “eye candy” appeal (physical looks”. Flattering as it may be, I think that even mr. Skerrit would be offended if these are the criteria we based our choice of leader on. Don’t judge a book by its cover!

      Lennoz himself said he sent out over fifty applications to secure a job in the country of his birth and NO ONE replied to any of the applications. Doesn’t this say something? Normally the business place replies to say at least “Your application was received and placed on file. We will get in touch with you at a later date.’ None of that? Make the analysis for yourself.

    For the people hitting on Linton, check the UN website. The evidence is there, Chrispine was the best man for this job, he was removed and replced by Vince to enable Vince to attend school, unbelievable!! Both Vince and the Dailey lady are enrolled in school- one would say nothing is wrong with that, but when there is no representation, the job is not being done, and when people are in NY for their personal benefits at the expense of our tax payers and DA development, then everything is wrong with that.

    April 4, 2011

    The more I read and get an understanding of the mindset in DA, the more I tend to think that we don’t like our leaders in DA and we want to destroy them. The Prime Minister will not last if he has to do everything. He is doing his job, but he has to do the job of everyone around him. And to make maters worse, instead of getting help from the public to give him some suggestions on how to hold people accountable, he has a bunch of “YES MEN and YES WOMEN” as supporters who simply say, OK to everything.

    Here you have a person that is not doing his job. Instead of suggesting that the PM replace Vince with someone that will do the job, you all here talking crap about Lennox and even the UN. Well if the UN does nothing for DA and is not a good organization, why is Vince getting paid all that money to be there? Some people just like to talk none sense.

    Instead of people telling the PM that he should get rid of the dead weight in his government and replace them with people that can make his job easier, you all telling him to keep the mediocre performers that cannot or will not do anything for DA. That is not showing support for the PM. You all are not helping the PM by doing that. In fact, you are making his job more stressful and we all know what stress does.

    • Looking in
      April 5, 2011

      If the Prime Minister would take anyone’s advice o.k but the man listens to himself alone – therefore he does not need help – HE IS SURROUNDED BY HIS YES MEN – AND THIS IS WHY DA WILL GET NOWHERE with leaders like that. If you do not say yes to the PM you get fired – understand DA is not a true democracy. Go figure.

    take a look at the pic.. Lennox Linton or Vince Henderson? i’ maybe a dumb blonde but i’m woman that like good looking men ,, Lennox take a back sit let the man shine there is no competition the brother look fine he don’t have to vote ,,, Nice face to represent DA,, too much ugly opposition in the darn house. All Vince need to do is send his ID to to represent him. He speaks well he represents our country intelligently something we haven’t had in yrs. I dare anyone better and more intelligent to do a better job than Vince. Sometimes our house is so dirty we can’t see it.. we prefer to do big cleanup,, what other people can see, this man is the best thing that has happen to this office in a very long time, Voting on issues is not the only job requirement.

    All you not killing the person chile with all you stress,, keep up the good Work Hendo,,,thank God for the opportunities and Move the Heck on , when it is all said and done Good redeems to bad freaking garbbage.

    Should I take Mr. Linton’s words at face value? Can Mr. Linton’s statements be substantiated? I would like to get the facts, mate. Investigative reporting requires some degree of proof…at least the minimum.

    @ Kalinago Express
    That’s the primary purpose of him in public service…to touch on every issue/item that’s affecting Dominica and Dominican. As far as I recall Fox , BBC and CNN touch on every aspect of people’s lives and everything that affects people. I do not get fed up of what they have to say because its useful information. Their motto is, “NEVER STOP ASKING; The People Wants to Know; Keeping Them Honest; etc… So I can only appreciate Lennox effort.
    In your blog you have not express whether the issue is concerning and why or why not. All issues stand on its own merits pardner. So if over a quarter million dollars, coming out of treasury, with little or no accountability does not concern you, I’m sure its concerning to a lot of citizens.

    Lenox, it’s about time you get a real man’s job and stop trying to destroy those among us who are to be emulated.
    Mr Henderson’s reputation precedes him!
    You are not close to being as brilliant, versed and well-read as Vince.
    In his short time at the UN his accomplishments have been outstanding. It would do you well to review the HOT SEAT programme of a few Mondays ago after your initial attack on His Excellency, Mr Henderson.

    Undoubtedly, that’s the best representation we have had at the UN.

    UWP insulted us by appointing Mike Wallace to the UN whose only skill was frying chicken. Embarrassing! That’s what you want for our Dominica?

    Maybe if you took some time to get a real education and some authentic form of qualification you might just get a real job one day.

    All the hater’s of Mr.Henderson. Stop making some much noise. When mr Gregoire was there in the UN how many times did he have meetings in New York/ New Jersey with Dominican unless the PM Was there.It is not the UN Ambassadore to have any meeting with the Dominican unless that they choose to do so. It is the right of the consulate to keep the people inform not the duty of the ambassadore. As an UN Ambassadore you have the right to vote or abstain in the best interest of our country. The ambassadore don’t have to attend every meeting in UN because the memorandum has been given to each representive before the meeting is being held.
    why cann’t Lenox and the rest of the hater educate the people who do not have a clue of how the UN runs.
    I believe that Lenox and the rest is afraid of Mr.Henderson because of the places that he have reach and where he going. Lenox need to stop causing trouble in the country and come up with a plan to help develope our youth and counrty.

    Earl Williams studied law and Peter Carbon worked in the USVI while they were parliamentarians. Showing up at meetings so that they would not be disqualified. Before the meeting would be over they would be out on the first flight, to Barbados or Trinidad and USVI…. I did not hear a call from Lennox to recall these gentlemen.. is this another example of selective application of good governance..

    I agree – if the man is “not only costing the state close to $1-million a year” AND “failed to effectively represent Dominica” then that man MUST be fired. After all, Lennox is fighting the fight for Justice. And in the good fight for justice, I say, let the petition signing begin for all those whom we have entrusted to represent us, and all those who have failed in their duties to, but are continuously RAPING the Dominican man of his hard earn tax dollars.

    So let’s start cleaning up at Home first before we try to clean up abroad. If we are taking out the TRASH… let us start with the others who have been charged with the responsibility of helping in the advancement of Dominica because that is the sacred duty of our elected officials but they don’t go to meetings, and they do not participate in meetings. And since we do not need to look far for officials boycotting their roles, and failing to effective be the voice for which they have been elected, let us start there.

    After all, a wasted salary here, is a wasted salary there. And if we add the “costing the state close to $1-million’ and the “he is costing us over a quarter million dollars a year ” we will get the total amount of wasted salaries, (1/4 mil or almost a mil – I DON’T KNOW WHICH IT IS) + wasted tax payer times + no show at parliament = FIRE ALL DEM R*S!

    Mr.Linton, you believe if someone is getting paid for a job they should show up for that job, right?
    Ok, i support you on that, The state should not be paying anyone that does not show up to work.

    So, are you going to call for a recall the opposition? Are they not costing the state money and not showing up to work? Just a question.

        I concurred with him, the state should not be paying anyone in NY or DA for a job that they are not showing up to do.

        Mr.Linton said, “Henderson doesn’t go to meetings, he doesn’t vote, he is not participating in the work ” Ok, i am just calling attention to fact that the same thing is happening in DA right under his nose, will he be calling for the other perpetrators to be recalled also.

    The effectiveness of an individual in a position depends on his educational background, unlike other nations, who sends people with diplomatic background to the United Nations, Dominica sends people with political demagoguery in their mind, which is not qualification to be in the UN.

    His problem is that he might not be capable of reading the thousand of pages presented to him and his understanding and concept of the proceedings may be beyond his abilities, so his alternative might be to take a back seat, rather than exposed his shallowness!

    Most nation sends the brightest people who are educated, and have a background in diplomacy to represent their country.

    The United Nations job is not a political job, and does not coincide with our brand of politics, it takes more than street politics to function within the United Nations.

  49. Neutral - Listener
    April 4, 2011

    I would hate to be an investigative reporter or any type of messenger in Dominica. It doesn’t matter what the news or information is, the basic response here is to attack the messenger. Whether the messenger is red or blue, does it ever cross your mind that he MIGHT BE RIGHT?

    What if Lennox is right? What if Vince is not doing anything for DA and getting paid? Is that OK with you? WAW!!!!

    Much of this simply exposes some of our ignorance in the nature island. We do not have the balls to question the people we voted for. That is so lame. That simply says that we will accept anything, be it good or bad. No brain power exercised. If further says that we will not challenge our elected officials to do better. They will simply so as they please and that can only lead to disaster.

    It takes a person with patriotism running through every ounce of blood running through his body to do what Lennox does. I read some of the comments here, and I am not sure that Jesus can correct some of this ignorance. That must be very frustrating for Lennox and others that are simply asking some people to think.

    • River

      In Dominica are NOT working/doing their jobs. Then again, they have to sing for their supper.

      Neutral-Listener, I appreciate the way you think- we think alike. I just can’t understand why so many Dominicans just see things along this political line. When Dominicans, as a whole, are going to grow up and be able to look at issues independently, and not through political lenses? Some people are just soo defensive once they think someone is not supporting an idea or someone that ‘their political party’ supports. For Dominica sake, why can we not be independent thinkers? It’s other to compare, but don’t tell me ‘this’ person is doing wrong, so its ok for ‘that’ person can do wrong to – instead, let’s correct all the wrongs! Any political party makes mistakes people – yes they do! It’s ok to oppose something even it came from ‘your party’, and any mature person should not be offended by that.

      I sure don’t see any mercy in your commence but pure none sense and ignorance. Why does LL have to figure out his role as relates to national development? Does a person need to have a special role to expose wrong doing? Why should we pay so much money to have someone represent us in the UN and only to find out that our vote is always absent? Would you allow that if you were paying his salary from your account? It is wrong and we should investitigate what is being done by Henderson and if Lenox is correct, then we should fire mr. Henderson. This is not a political matter but rather, one of national interest reguardless of their political affiliation. I tottaly disagree with this crap and fyi, Marigot is still part of Dominiica and L.L does not have to go back to Marigot to talk about things that affect us in Dominica. I find your commence is full of ignorance and shameful. To me, in this context, you more need the Lord to have mercy on you than on Lenox.

    At least Henderson was at the Human Rights meeting that voted on the Gay Rights/, if the news is to be believed, and I dont see why not. According to this news item:
    “… Linton told a gathering recently that Henderson is not only costing the state close to $1-million a year,” and then in the same news item a few paragraphs below, we find “..He is costing us over a quarter million dollars a year …” Is it an anxiety to say something, anything, that is getting him into trouble?
