Opposition Leader Linton calls on PM Skerrit to clear the air

Skerrit and Linton meet one-on-one, following the formation of the Parliamentary Advisory Group

Opposition Leader, Lennox Linton, has challenged Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit to set the record straight with regard to conflicting statements he made pertaining to Linton’s interventions in the Parliamentary Advisory Group that was formed following the devastation that Tropical Storm Erika caused to Dominica on August 27th 2015.

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, on the 7th of September 2015, described Linton’s intervention in the group that consists of all elected parliamentarians, as “most constructive.” However, two months later, the Prime Minister expressed a completely different view.

“I want to say here that I was very impressed and satisfied with the overall sense of purpose and commitment of all parliamentarians particularly the leader of the opposition honourable Lennox Linton who has been most constructive in his interventions. I believe this formula of parliamentarians working together in the face of adversity has served us well thus far during this repair and restoration period,” Skerrit said on the 7th of September 2015.

But just last week, speaking on a Radio Program on Kairi FM, the country’s leader had this to say of the Opposition Leader’s participation in the advisory group.

“The point is I mean really and truly Linton wasn’t producing anything in that committee,” he said.

However in a live interview on Q 95 FM on Thursday, Linton called on the Prime Minister to make himself clear.

“Only the Prime Minister can account for what he said. Whether what he said then was true, or what he saying now is true that is for him to decide but he cannot leave the people of Dominica with both impressions,” he said.

“And I thank the record for this statement of the 7th of September because at that point we have had two meetings of the group. We had the third meeting the following day on the 8th of September and if I am to offer an opinion, I believe that was the meeting in which I was the most constructive and we had a final meeting on the 21st of September the group has not met since. So again honesty, integrity, decency is important to the leadership of a nation state in the civilized world in 2015.”

The Opposition Leader noted that when the Prime Minister made reference to being satisfied with “all parliamentarians” he was speaking about parliamentarians on both sides of the parliament.

“He [Skerrit] wanted in particular to single out the Leader of the Opposition Lennox Linton for his constructiveness in intervention. In other words the Prime Minister is saying that in the contact that he has had so far and in the meetings he had held and chaired of the parliamentary advisory group on national reconstruction, he was impressed in particular, not with somebody on his team or some people on his team, he was particularly impressed with Lennox Linton, the Leader of the opposition.”

Linton has since indicated that he does not intend to continue to be a member of the group.

The opposition UWP has planned a news conference for Tuesday 17th November at which it is expected that the party will state its position on this matter.

    Mr. Lennox (PERFECT) Linton needs to leave Mr. Skerrit alone give the man a breath of fresh air. Maybe if he would be nice for once things would go his way…..Cool out!!!!!!

    LL sitting where he is in that photo shows how the electorate is politically retarded and inept.

    I say this because Dominica has traditionally placed high emphasis on a solid education to guarantee your place in society.

    PM Skerritt chose to attack Hon. Lennox Linton as a diversion tactic,to take the focus away from him and his lying,false sales job in Vietnam. Remember that he bragged that his government had already built upwards of 500 houses since TS Erica. Every Dominican and our neighbors in the region, know this to be a big lie.Lier,Lier your pants are on fire.
    I’m not surprised because this is what leaders with empty followers do.His so called generals dare not question him on his lying pronouncements,but help him feed red meat to his attack dogs by invoking hatred and so called ridicule of Mr. Linton.Thank God the majority of smart Dominicans reside in Roseau and environs,areas which rejected Labour Party at the poles the last elections.Therefore Mr Skerritt and your pathetic goons you have failed once again to lead and you have shown smart people that you are a pathetic Lier.Instead why don’t you give the nation an honest report of post Erica status in the country and an honest accounting.

    • November 15, 2015

      Johnathan you sound desperate, what has the fact that the majority of voters in RS,RC and RS voted for UWP? Are you going back to the days when it was thought by the Roseau elite that the rest of the country did not matter,as they were just a bunch of black COUNTRY BOOKIES. Is your party the UWP now a reincarnation DUPP? That should not surprise as your dear leader referred to former President Liverpool as a black COUNTRY BOOKIE from Grandbay. And your leaders will continue to pay for their lying ways, I hope you have made your contribution so that LL can pay KPB for the lies he told about him.

        Point, I’m not desperate but how would you define people who sold their vote for a couple sheets of galvanize? I’m sure smart is not the word that you would use.The people of Roseau and environs did not sell themselves short hence they are smart people.

    Mr. LIN! Your followers are letting you down. You are asking for 71,000 people to control one man, how is that possible. The people Lisson to news ,read newspapers, listen to others yet you are asking to see them from house to house to inform the people.Is that all a Leader has to do. Linton you would do well as a Jehovah witness go for it or stay and get your blows.

    Dominicans , Skeritt is slowing down the development process for Dominica in this time we so need our country to go main stream. Skerro is playing games with us because he has realized that Dominicans are are too concerned and caught-up with “The P.M” rather than what is the best way forward for us as a people. Skerro knows that he has enough capital to support him for a long time in the U.S after he leaves , so he is not interested in developing Da.!
    I think Lennox is a selfless individual who truly has the best interest for Dominica and its people.
    Action speaks louder than words and from Skerro’s actions he clearly don’t give a $h** about Dominica.
    At the end of the day both he and Tony will go elsewhere to live their lives , and leave us in our melee’.

    Jump high jump low .. the role of the opposition is to keep the government on its toes . The government is duty bound to be transparent and faithful to its oaths.
    The government under the present pm has been to carefree and left to many questions unanswered. .
    It’s only in Dominica that the Pm and his government don’t answer questions. . Silly ain’t it?
    On another note, Dominica doesn’t look like recovering very soon. .
    Could the pm tell Dominicans how much money has been collected and the sources please?
    Hope the money is used for exactly what it was meant for.
    God help Dominica with such a Pm like Skerritt.
    Best the Pm just resign cause he looKS tired and out of ideas. .
    In the mean time, Mr Lennox please keep on the pressure. It’s working. …

    Skerrit is overly excited and attention sreking in his mythological world. This arrogant sociopath and self indulgent liar really believes everyone else believes his hogwash. He can’t give a single substantial account gor reaping off the treasury and fulfilling his travel fantasies so he projects his incompetence on Lennox. A vile tongue gets stitched in time, carry on. The most embarrassing part of this delusional man’s rants is unconditional support he recieves from people who damn well know he’s lying,coniving and plain ignorant. Saddam Hussein was bigger,bolder and more brutal, in the end along with a trunk of millions hecwas flushed out of a filthy sewer like himself alone with n i’ll n of his henchmen nor his brutal sobs by his side.

    November 13, 2015

    From an HR perspective, the PM’s 7th September public performance evaluation of the Opposition Leader (OL) was very premature. This was less than two weeks after the passage of TS Erika PM and not enough time to have observed and given any type of performance rating of the OL’s performance, especially a glowing one. Also, it was interesting to read just a few days later of the OL’s severe criticism of the PM’s handling of that same Advisory group, https://dominicanewsonline.com/news/homepage/news/politics/pm-linton-trade-words-over-opposition-concerns/

    So, while the PM was busy putting together a shiny gloss on the OL’s contribution to the post-Erika , the OL was just as busy preparing to make him look incompetent and foolish. Now that the PM knows how the OL really thinks about him after weeks of hearing the OL label him guilty by associating with NG Lap Seng among other things, he comes in true NBC’s Saturday Night Live jest and starts this brouhaha with Linton over…

    Listen to me. I am not political and I am non bias. I love good leadership. But which is the truth? “I want to say here that I was very impressed and satisfied with the overall sense of purpose and commitment of all parliamentarians particularly the leader of the opposition honourable Lennox Linton who has been most constructive in his interventions. I believe this formula of parliamentarians working together in the face of adversity has served us well thus far during this repair and restoration period,” and “The point is I mean really and truly Linton wasn’t producing anything in that committee,” These are the words of our beloved PM. Dominicans lets not conclude that we are fools

    Any one who wants to be saved and go to heaven please join the UWP and pay homage to its SINLESS leader, who has never told a lie, who has never uttered a profanity, and lives in total harmony with his fellow men. The UWP is only concerned about power, and as far as they are concerned only one person in Dominica has the right to talk and that is the oppossition leader, he is the only one allowed to insult and degrade people and anytime he gets a response he is crying and asking for clarification. The advisory committee was a mistake by Skeritt and should be disbanded, perhaps it has already been disbanded. The UWP and its supporters should stop acting like a bunch of ISIS terrorists and spoilt children, their words and actions shows how hungry they are for power. How can the UWP do better than what the DLP when their financial Wizard Dr. Fontaine’s idea of an investment club quickly came to nought because of its resemblance to a ponzi scheme, where people would loose their money

    In spite of everything I still want Linton and the opposition to ease up on Skerrit because the man has been under severe pressure, from his last Macau trip of August 26. From that day all hell broke lose on him, and I don’t believe he has ever been able to get a good sleep because he afraid.

    Let me give a testimony or joke here that has nothing to do with Mr. Skerrit because I know the man is innocent ok.

    I remember when I was growing up as a young boy me and three other young boys committed a crime but the police picked up the three boys and left me out. Boy you talk about fair and sleepless nights! Everytime I heard the vibration of a car, I would literally hide because I knew they would pick me up anytime. Well they finally picked me up two months later and I paid for my crime

    From day one I felt UWP should stay out of Skerrit’s mess because darkness and light CANNOT CO- exist. I posted many blogs asking Linton to stay out of Skerrit’s politics. But knowing how Lennox will do anything he believes will help Dominica, he decided to give it a try.

    Skerrit has his masters in telling lies and liars have a very short memory. Ian knows him, and if given a chance all of his ministers will say the same things Ian said about Skerrit. Is just that he is their jesus and they are all afraid of him.

    The man came into politics and leadership through lies and deception and my mom would always tell me not to lie because liars are usually…..and,,,,,
    Now I understand what my mom meant.

Is no way a new venture like this has just started and you going to blast the people you are working with. Look at Obama and Mrs. Clinton look at all the things that were said and he still hired her to work in his government, so was he lying then about her?

    Good Day honourable Linton. Congratulations are due to you for finally deciding to pull out of this Advisory group led by Skerrit. More than ever before, with every passing minute, Skerrits demeneour is portraying that he is worried and scared. I really do not know over what. HE NEEDS TO TELL THE NATION! The confusing and conflicting description of honourable Linton by is an of his duplicitous behaviour and modepitomyus operandi. He is a fickle individual,AND BRILLIANT MINDS LIKE LINTON et al is anathema to him. Remember Ian told the world,if you are together with Skerrit and you are thirsty, the few seconds you leave him to assuage your thirst is enough for his tongue to slaughter you into oblivion. WELL DONE HONOURABLE LINTON!

    I have concluded that Mr. Linton is really obsessed with our Beloved PM. You may have shown interest in the beginning, however, your actions thus far have given you a failing report. The PM is right, Linton is more about talk and no action. You have only demonstrated to the people of Dominica your animosity towards the PM, you have failed to address the cries of the people of Marigot, you breathe, sleep and dream of the PM. My Dear PM needs to be very careful with you. Linton, please stop with the fascination of the PM and start giving the Marigot constituency some attention. Will you? You are annoying!

    • ?????????????
      November 13, 2015

      Exactly my sentiments. He came good at the beginning, hence the PM spoke highly of him in the face of the disaster. But we can see (note well the PM did not have to point this out to me), he is back to his usual obsession of the PM, his so called investigative looking for something to talk and talk about and let his supporters get a high. Vainglory and strife seeking, instilling hatred in the minds and very fabric of his supporters. Now serious talk, everyone let us pray for the Opposition Leader to get over his addiction and to be a better person. One would have thought that he would learn a lesson from Erica. Mr. Linton God loves you & we also love you but stop that crazy obsession of the PM and do some tangible work and less useless talk. Start to talk about real selfless love & demonstrate it by loving the PM & send IK ng out a Love wave to your supporters who incidently you have turned into unpatriotic unloving Dominicans. GOD will bless and reward you. REPENT

Because what the sentence says and what I believed was said is conflicting. Could be a typo or I could have misunderstand or did not hear correctly?

    “Linton has since indicated that he does intend to continue to be a member of the group.” DNO

      Linton and his crew should resign from the committee and organize their own and show Dominicans that they can do a better job. They have the money from their investment club and DAAS. and they can get more to finance the 8,000 jobs they promised. Those guys are smarter than the DLP crew, so they can DO a few things to show they are better. Then they can move a motion of no confidence in the government. They can solve all Dominica’s problems. With these great acheivements they are sure to win the next election. They will not need a manisfesto, all they will have to do is list their tremendous success.
      Why stay in a committee that is keeping us back when they can do better on their own. It was a mistake to accept the PM invitation to serve on this clueless committee in the first place.

    “Only the Prime Minister can account for what he said. Whether what he said then was true, or what he is saying now is true that is for him to decide but he cannot leave the people of Dominica with both impressions,” he said.”

    Lennox, such are the traits of a pathological, compulsive liar! The man has a problem with lying; under no circumstances can he prevent himself from telling lies!

    The pathological liar lives a very distorted, and delusional life; whatever they say must be distorted; as there is no truth to what the say. I personally see failure; there will be no constructive resolve to the after effects of Erika, Skerrit has invited the opposition into the dialogue so that he can pass the blame on you when fails!

Though you want your party to be in power you have to wait for the ballot of the populace but I must be honest with you, the way of creating strife and hatred is not going to work. Humility, working and less talk and showing off and playing that you know it all is not the answer. LOVE is the answer love of all regardless of who they support. Genuine love and you all have to start at the top loving the very ones u blatantly show disgust for …. PM , Speaker and the others you say so mu h bad about all in the Name of Politics.

    The prime Minister is not known to be very truthful, and that I say just for respect of the office. When we are strangers to truth as this man has been we tend to depalay and say one thing today, and a different thing tomorrow, especially when we know trouble is ahead and we are afraid of the possible unfavorable outcome. I forgive Skerrit because since his August 2-26 famous trip to Macaw, all hell seems to have fallen on him.

    First it was news of Erika’s havoc of August 27, then shortly followed by the arrest of NG Lap Seng by FBI on Sept. 19, then followed by the arrests of John Ashe and Francis Lorenzo, all whom were seen at the famous Macaw party that Skerrit himself attended on August 26, and was seen signing a document, which has drawn international attention. since those arrested were charged for corruption and bribery.

    So yes, I can understand the pressure the man has been under and I am not at all surprised he depalaying, not forgetting the 574 houses built since…

    One leader serious and very businesslike the other always smiling and playing, a player.

    So what did you really expect Mr Linton? Here is just another prime example that the Dear Leader says whatever serves his momentary interest. Speaking with a “forked tongue “means to say one thing and mean another or to be hypocritical. And in the Holy Book, the Apostle James warns against those who speak with a forked tongue. In the NEw English Version, , he cautions that such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. Seems like the contortions of the Dear Leader speak for themselves.

    Lipton how much aid have you mobilised for the Marigot and Wesley Citizens who have been affected by the Tropical Storm Erica, how much have you and your members of the opposition have mobilised for Dominicans by extension-

    The people of these 2 villages got a belt for their back they thought they were doing bad to the ruling Government when thy voted for you, little did they know they placed a monkey on their back… a real mishap.. to do this DAY they have regretted… the decision… you don’t even know the names of the senior citizens in these villages.. mind your business and leave the PM alone.. you are not needed in the affairs of the Government . stay out cause they don’t want you …

    you are an attention craved individual ,with lots of imaginations going on around you. get real and get a hold of yourself… eery time you open you hole in your face is for attention seeking . give another person a chance …. barking dogs seldom bite… the PM is good

      zuma do you know what Skeritt has gotten? He is the Head of the Government and He not revealing to us how much He got how can You reasonably ask of Mr. Linton the same.
      Lennox as Opposition Leader His Job is to hold skeritt accountable and I believe He is doing just that !

    Mr. Linton I listened to Mr.Skerritt on both occasions and I must say he just can’t help himself and we should pray for him, I do believe that the guys on the other station was laughing not at you but rather at Mr. Skerritt . These men don’t care about the resident on the Island because here we have very serious matters to deal with and they have turned them into a joke.. Dominica is in real trouble we need all the help we can get and this is how we are handling things, it’s up to all of us to do our part right now we cannot leave it up to the politicians any more and we cannot leave it up to those in the diaspora either.. Dominica belong to all of us so let’s stop playing party politic and help to rebuild the Island. OK.

    Mr Linton, are you for real?what are you looking for ?A pat on the back from Skerro? I personally think you are losing it!
    I am looking for a way out from this labour party government ,but the way you conducting yourself at this lever ,i am slowing being turned off by your arrogance and talkative nature.There”s a saying that goes “empty vessels makes the most noise”I am beginning see that you are very empty, just ramblings on and on and on!Don’t you ever stop?

    Once again, proof that Skerrit cannot and ought not to be trusted. The man is only interested in maintaining his political position and power. He will do all he deems necessary, whether it is legal or illegal, ethical or unethical, in that regard. Personal integrity does not matter for him or hardly does. The UWP must admit of this and act accordingly.

    Skeritt made it very clear to Dominicans that he did psychology in college. In fact, Aaron, in one of his commentaries two years ago, in the Chronicle, wrote that Skeritt had a degree in psychology. What better way to hide the failure of his approximately four months money searching trips, post Erika, then to attack Mr. Linton.

    Well said Hon Lennox Linton, well articulated, well said. We see the difference in Hon Linton a professional, disciplined politician and Skerrit a novice ably supported and protected by unscrupulous Senior (?) lawyers as they are trying hard to hang on to power where the recent and past elections of the DLP has been compromised and questionable to the point of being stolen. So their reputation in politics is questionable.
    The UWP won the 2014 elections, until I hear otherwise, we can safely say the DLP stole that election.

    To Roosevelt Skerrit:
    Say what you mean and mean what you say!!
    Skerrit made a huge blunder and de jokers in studio proved themselves to be mere stooges!!
    You mean none of de people in studio including de former education officer were unaware or forgot that Skerrit had earlier given Linton high praise for his efforts? Dat education officer was disgraceful to say de least.
    Lennox i agree with you 100%.
    Stay clear from dat two-faced PM!
    I could NEVER trust mr as a friend .
    Mr will sell me off as a slave without my knowledge!!!!
    I am not a member of any political party but i will give you high marks Mr Linton.
    Great job thus far!
    Skerrit doesn’t know how to deal with you.
    You are a formidable presence in de leadership ring!
    Skerrit have more worries with his friend N G Lap Seng!
    Trying to hide his frustration and underlying fear that we de people have come to see him for what he is through de actions of his closest associates in Macau.
    Thank you Lennox!!!!

      Dominicans are intelligent people but sometimes I wonder of our one direction reasoning.

      Have we ever known anyone in a scenario such as this. The person started their job with the greatest of potential. For the first two weeks they did everything right and was always punctual and dressed properly for the job and environment and that happened all throughout the probation period and as the supervisor you had nothing but praise for the individual.

      However, as soon as the probation period is over. The same individual becomes less punctual, takes long coffee and lunch breaks. dresses inappropriately, believes they own the company and their work starts to slide and are unable to finish tasks. As an evaluator would you say, how you viewed the employee during the probation period that you would view the employee the same way after the probation period?

      I am not saying this is the case, but could that happen to anyone? We’ve all known employees like this.
