Lennox Linton gets the ‘blue’ light

Lennox Linton has been recommended to replace Edison James as MP for Marigot
Lennox Linton

The Nominations Committee of of the United Workers Party (UWP), has voted overwhelmingly for journalist and radio talk show host, Lennox Linton, as the candidate for the position of political leader at the party’s delegates conference in September.

The Committee, which comprises chairpersons of the party’s constituency associations, met in Roseau on Saturday August 16, to consider and decide on nominations for the party’s top leadership position.

According to party officials, 15 out of the 17 constituency associations which attended the meeting, voted in favour of Linton while Ronnie Isidore and Claudius Sanford each received one vote.

The Nominations Committee’s report will now go to the party’s management committee for ratification.

The political leader will be elected at the UWP delegates conference scheduled to be held in Castle Bruce on September 1. There, according to party rules, delegates will still have the opportunity to make other nominations from the floor for the consideration of the entire body.

It is possible that the names of Isidore and Sanford could still surface.

However, a UWP official told DNO that “that is unlikely to change anything,”  as he expects that the recommendation of the nominations committee will be upheld and Linton will be elected political leader.

According to another source, the general council of the party which is ‘responsible for authorising the delegates conference,’  took a decision “to allow those nominated for the leadership by any constituency association to address the delegates from 12 to 1.00pm,” and that may still happen, the source said.

Some 178 delegates from the various constituencies are expected to attend the UWP delegates conference.

The outcome  for the position of deputy political leader is not so clear as according to the UWP official, two names have been put forward for that position – Joseph Isaac and Dr. Thomson Fontaine.

DNO was informed that Ronnie Isidore had turned down the nomination for that position but we’ve since learnt from reliable sources that Isidore is prepared to accept nomination for that position if he is asked.

As has been reported, Joseph Isaac will replace incumbent parliamentary representative, Norris Prevost, as the candidate for the Roseau Central constituency in the next general election. The Roseau Central constituency association, while publicly supporting Lennox Linton for political leader, had announced that they would be nominating Isaac for the position of deputy political leader.

Dr. Thomspon Fontaine has been identified as the next UWP candidate for the Rivierre Cyrique constituency and there were reports that he was among those being considered by the party hierarchy for the post of political leader.

But for now, it appears that if he accepts that nomination, he will have to battle Isaac and possibly Isidore, for the position of UWP deputy political leader.

    I am sure those people that are saying Lennox does not smile are worse than him.
    Sometimes you greet people and they don’t reply or reply like they don’t want to open their mouth.
    When you get know to some people that always smile you realize they are beast.
    Assertive not Aggressive

    After reading all these comments, I’m sad to say that there are alot of people who thinks Skerrit should remain in power despite his track record,
    That leave me to believe, that these people are either braindead or parasites, who are just scared that the handouts are gonna stop.
    With no degree, no dimple on his face, Linton is the best thing that could happen to Dominica in a long time.
    That go to hell,speech by S should mobilize ALL Dominicans, red, blue green to move St.
    NO LEADER SHOULD GET AWAY WITH IT, yOU CAN’T SPEAK TO YOUR SUBJECTS IN THAT WAY, TOTAL LACK OF RESPECT FOR DOMINICA AND DOMINICANS

    I will repeat myself again, you can’t be polarizing and want to rally troops on both sides. The law of nature will not permit it. Lennox Linton will win his seat but he will not be able to bring the country together. One either loves him or hate him; and alot of people hate him. This isn’t a Marigot old boys club. This is our fututre at stake. Edison, Previost and their backers are again destroying the party “infront our eyes”.

      Excuse me, the same cud be said of skerrit :either u hate or love him.isn’t he dividing the nation? So what is your point ? People want sustainable development and this is not happening under this present administration. The only thing that is apparently happening is the ministers and their friends and family are getting richer while the other populace are getting extremely poor.

    Say what all you want, curse me, call me all sorts of names, give me all thumbs down, I could care less, but I giving this government 2-3 more terms in office because I don’t wish to be fooled again into thinking that politicians who outside talking going to come in and do any better. The present government have made many mistakes but atleast they have the experience. Therefore a new party would simply come and have to make too many more mistakes before they can gain the experience to do better. In an island as difficult as Dominica to develop I believe a government needs alot of time to do work. Countries like the US and Uk have had their democracies for a very long time so hence the country is strong so they can afford to change government more often but we need time. The UWP is now rather a new party so there is no guarantee that they can just pick up the ball and run with it and who can’t see that must be living in dreamland, where that is. It has never happened in the past and certainly won’t happen now if you were to follow the history of Dominica you would notice under every government people cried out about poverty and so to migrated.

    Never have I seen so many labourites comment on any given subject. Commonsense tells me that either afraid of Lenox to the bone or they hate him for revealing the truth. I know it is both of them but they more afraid than anything else. If they felt his nomination was a sign of defeating UWP, they would have said nothing to discourage delegates from voting him. But they so afraid that they all over babbling. Anyway I know its a free forum so go ahead and keep crying early because your shoes squeezing all you. Lenox will use the saw to cut it off and set all of us free.

      Oh, the power of the tongue (James 3:1-11). God primarily heard him. Those who attack the Catholic Church and the Pope of all are cursed. No joking! They bring it upon themselves due to their ungodly remarks.
      Our Lord said: “By your words you will be acquitted and by your words you will be condemned.” He also said: “The insults of those who insult you (and whatever ungodly actions are spewed), fall on Me.“ If only they knew what is contained in the Bible as they should and the repercussion for their words, they would act differently.
      Also attacking the innocent unborn? I will honestly further state, it reflects on his face, what is in his heart. I feel sorry for that man. Mark my words.

    Ten Presidents did not earn a college degree and eight never went to college.

    George Washington, Andrew Jackson, Andrew Johnson, Abraham Lincoln, Grover Cleveland, Martin Van Buren, Millard Fillmore, and Zachary Taylor never went to college. (In fact, Andrew Johnson did not attend any school at all.) William McKinley dropped out of college as a junior due to illness and later went to law school but did not get a degree. Harry Truman attended the Kansas City Law School but did not earn a degree.
    (George Washington may have had instruction in surveying at William and Mary’s College but they were not for college credit.)

    August 19, 2013

    I love the views expressed by DOUGLAS A
    I hope that we all spend some time to read them
    No need to deal with the negative attack on the DOUGLAS FAMILY That was detestable and unfortunate.
    I think some of the issues that must be assessed are as follows
    1. Who chose the representatives at Saturdays meeting
    2. Who authorized them to vote in the manner that they did
    3. Were the supporters in these 17 constituencies informed , mobilized, sensitized about the said meeting
    4 Were they given an opportunity to critically hear these candidates and their views as to how they can move the UWP and Country forward ( Vision and Mission )
    5. Did the leadership of the UWP involved in manipulation of the process before and during Saturdays meeting
    6. Was the process FAIR and FREE from FEAR and completely DEMOCRATIC ?
    7. CAN CANDFORD/iSIDORE etc be acting irresponsible if they ask for an Independent Inquiry unto Last Saturdays proceedings because of the fact that theyre far more enlightened after Sat as to what actually took place ( behind the scenes )
    8, Can the leadership of the UWP explain why 4 constituencies were missing from that meeting
    9 Was monies used to allure persons to vote or not vote for some of the candidates
    10. Will the UWP explain to Dominicans the precise FACTUAL STEPS that it took based on its Constitution as far as it pertained to LAST SATURDAYS MEETING and inform the nation at a PRESS CONFERENCE prior to its delegates conference ?

    NB There are persons who COMMENT on DNO who pretend to be supporters of DLP or UWP and at times both, some even comment on their own comments, others look at this medium as mere recreational therapy, others take it very seriously, a few are very addicted to DNO and some just don’t care…etc etc etc and unfortubately there are some who try to use DNO to create political and other forms of mischief and propaganda, while others use this media as a means to educate, clarify etc.
    At the end of the day we all have a conscience. God will judge me first and you all later. I have my sins to account for and I pray that the precious blood of Jesus wash them away some day. However we must try to be tolerant of the views of others. LENNOX LINTON is now a politician and likewise Pm Skerrit he is expected to be the subject of scrutiny. That’s is the nature of politics and he is definitely aware of this. UWP for better or for worse seems to ne going through some critical transitional its a major yet important gamble…it cannot be business as usual…THE key question is WILL THIS ATTEMPT AT REBRANDING WORK ? Neither Lenox nor Skerrit are saints but the fact remains that PM Skerrit is excessively popular and the UWP does have a herculean task on its hands to convince the elecotorate. We can get distracted ny “new things ” and the honeymoon of changed party leadership but when the dust is settled the fact remains that THE UWP WILL BE FACING A WELL OILED DLP POLITICAL DYNAMITE. It is also quite evident that with LINTON at the helm of the party this has provided a greater level of energy amongst its support base but still a far cry from the spectacular advent of EDDISON JAMES of FEAR NO MORE fame.

      My friend, I’m not sure why you’ve received thumbs down but I’m kind of in agreement with the opinion expressed, let’s hope these are genuine. I don’t get though, your skepticism about the change process being undertaken and to view it as a gamble; change is a must not an option. For years the cry has been for UWP to present new blood. Obviously the old men have listened to that cry and have done just that.
      On the subject of who has or will create an impact, let me remind you that Mr James’ entry into the political arena was not without controversy or criticism. The leaders of the party then being branded as greedy business men, with Mr James himself being described a disgruntled man who did get what he wanted from Mamo. I can also assure you that none of the current challengers for the post of party leader would not have generated the level of energy as Lennox has created.

      August 20, 2013

      @UWP 10 Commandments, I do not know your political affiliation although you do sound as someone that is trying to stir confusion and distraction within the UWP base. If you were a true UWP supporter with genuine concerns, I would expect you to address them with leadership of the party. If according to you Sandford and Isidore were not treated fairly, then they should know that the election of a leader has not taken place and will not take place before September. They still have enough time to get in and allow delegates to decide. Regarding the four missing constituencies you talked about, my question to you is, would they make a difference in a 15/4 result? Furthermore, if according to PM Skerrit is excessively popular then you would agree with me that both Sanford and Isidore already went up against him and did not win. In fact though I am impressed with both of them, we the voters will also remember the following: a. When Fordie contested the first time he lost by 37 votes. He was then elevated to deputy leader and was crushed by over 200 votes. Although the numbers are not the same with isidore the result was the same. To be honest with you although I still consider myself as a DFP, though I voted Labour in 2000 and 2005 and then UWP in 2009, I am not after party or personality; it’s all about who can deliver Dominica from where the DLP has placed us in the last 13 years. To me after the 2009 elections, uwp was all but dead with both Isidore and Sanford on board. It was Lenox that jumbed behid the wheels at that time and unofficially became the voice of the party and re fired the base and got new passengers to jump onboard. So while I understand your concerns, I still believe that if you are a true supporter you should handle them differently. In case you are paid by DLP to distract us, be it known that at the end of the day come September, we the delegates will vote for someone we believe can defeat Skerrit, and we will all be united come election day.

    August 19, 2013

    The way I see it is that Skerrit has had his chance at leadership. How are we today compared to when he took office? Is our standard better? Is our quality of life better? Has he brought down the unemployment rate? Is agriculture doing better? Is tourism doing better? What about the financial services sector? Is the cost of living lower? Has his credibility as a leader been intact? Has he been accused of dealings, that he cannot defend? etc, etc, etc.
    IF THE ANSWERS ARE “”””NO”””” Vote he and his team out!!!! No one leader owns a country. Once you cannot perform you need to go.
    And to those of you who used to ‘sell’ Skerrit as the handsome young man with dimples. These were not characteristics of good leadership. That’s why we are languishing as one of the poorest countries in the Caribbean.Dimples cannot propel a country forward.
    I LOVE LINTON AND WILL, TOGETHER WITH MY FAMILY GIVE HIM A CHANCE.He is mature with no dimples, but with honesty and integrity, a team player,good orator, understand the plight of the people, understands what the country needs,how it should grow, etc etc,…

      First of all, Skerrit and the Labour Party do not care who is elected as Leader of the UWP. It does not make any difference to them because they are secured in knowing that the UWP does not stand a chance come next election. Labour will remain the Government in power.
      Actually, Skerrit and Labour are amused that it is the Lennox who will lead the UWP, because the guy is just a journalist without any formal education. Lennox needs to go back to school so he can be on equal level with the other UWP contenders who hold Doctorates, Masters and degrees.

        @ Really…You might want to tell Skerrit, Charlo,Austrie, Petter, Gloria, Mathew, Justina, Kelvar, bondieu the entire Labour cabinet the same thing too. Skerrit has a Bachelors in English one hardly considers that worth talking about, muchless qualification for being PM and Financial Minister. The others well you know their history. We have a Minister of Education to start with who barely can claim 4 GCEs with decent grades. Struggling to string a coherent sentence. So in truth all of them need to upgrade you hear, including Lennox himself. Yes Lennox needs to step it up. I’m shocked myself to learn he didn’t have a degree, when UWP so like to call people dunce. Freedom party had quite a few who are on the same wavelength too.

    The critics of Mr. Lennox Linton cannot prevent the inevitable. When Mr.Linton gets into Parliament, it will never be the same again. The Skerrit Labor Party Government must do their homework. We will never hear Ministers of Government calling themselves rottweilers or how good they are at eating chicken breast or inventing mapuis. The caliber of debate Mr. Linton is going to bring to the house, the Labor Government must upgrade their stile in all categories of debate or the people of Dominica especially the young students will judge them harshly.

    When he speaks you listen, i followed Mr. Linton on the observer Radio in Antigua, it pure brilliance.When someone stands up for what they believed in,and do not let anyone deter him from what he believes in why not give him a chance.

    I am a young independent,Honest and Hardworking Woman and i truly believe you should be honest in everything you do in life, thats why i will be voting for Mr. Linton. Gods will.

I believe in change but not just for the sake of change.Now i am dissappointed that my other alternative to Skerrit is a gentleman who has publicly declared that almost a decade he has been applying for jobs and no one will hire him. Common Dominicans, we have been insulted over and over again on radio by being called “Dummy in cans”.Please don’t prove our critics right. Think people think. If no one will hire you for lack of qualifications or fear of destroying their business, why should we hire you to destroy an entire country. Bring on someone else please UWP. not Linton.

    Tremendous news! Lenox’ life story reminds me very much of a feller in the bible named Joseph (Ge.37:1-50:26, who had a dream and as a result was hated and discriminated by those he would later bring hope to. They tried to kill him, but their plot failed; they sold him into slavery where he was later jailed innocently, only to find out later that all what he experienced in life was nothing more than God’s way of preparing him for the task ahead. Lenox, this is your moment and always remember that the stone the builders rejected, will become the chief corner stone. Be strong, be humble, and serve all of us Dominicans with love, grace, and integrity. I am finally proud of the UWP and the direction they are going. As a former DFP and DLP from 2000-2009, I finally got a leader who loves Dominica and has demonstrated to all that you are not after money, as you had to use your own money to fight for our interest. It is not about degree but integrity. Those with degree failed us miserably and they just used their degree to blind-fold us. I am behind you 1000% and I just cannot wait for Skerrit to call election! May God bless you with his grace.

    So if Lennox win… and Dominica still ends up being in a rut, what would the populace say/

    Give him time?
    He had no experience?

    what can he do for Dominica than another better well stablished and experienced Minister can’t?

    So he can expose Scandal? Does that mean that he can lead a country?
    DO you guys think that sitting behind a mic and spewing the things he does is a sign that a man can be a good leader?

    I’m hoping for his sake that he succeeds ontherwise, these same supporters are going to turn on him.

    I think Lennox should remain the talk show host that he is and let real men, who’ve worked hard, laboured hard, nurtered the spirit of Dominica lead Dominicans. A bias man, who’s sole aim is to destroy one man as opposed to building a country should be given a chance to lead.

I have never voted and will never get a chance to vote because i live out of state …but if i had to, i’d definitely not vote for Lennox, nor would i vote for Skerrit.

        More than that…Stanford has great potentials but at this juncture, he may not be the best person to lead the party.

        We encourage the youngman and others like Ronnie Isidore and Mr. John (Spaggs) to work with whoever is democratically elected as leader with a clear view of the larger picture and the best interest of the party and country in sight. The issue of leadership of teh UWP should not be so personal as Julius Timothy made it.

        We all have a role to play and sometimes, the circumstances force us to play a supportive role rather than a leadership role. In fact sometimes, some of us are required to play a quiet background role while others are bravely and openly leading the way…but contributing we must for the cause of national development.

    Hmmmmm. All i see around this time is a repeat of what happened to timothy. It was Mr. James who went around to delegates to vote Earl Williams knowing if he won, he could not become leader knowing there was a policy within the party not to make him leader because of an attitude problem he suffered. All this was done so Mr. James could regain leadership of the party, hence the reason Tim Tim had to jump the floor after investing over 2 million dollars in the party. In all fairness i would do the same if members in the party could conspire against me, knowing the amount of money i was investing.

    Since Tim Tim left, the UWP have suffered defeat three times and instead mr. James change his attitude, here he goes again. conspiring against members of the party who have been there throughout all the grinds.
    Presently, Mr. James is strategically doing the same thing to other members of the party who have been there throughout the stormy weather.

    With all that being said, the UWP will not win the next election in Dominica until things are done in a civil manner. Lennox have not yet contested any seat in Dominica and he should not even be in the race for leadership. This is bad publicity for the party. It shows how divided the party is and i believe UWP should be changed to DWP ( divided workers party). Lennox is very controversial and should know better. if he wants to be a leader he should form his own party, not just come into a party and looking for leadership. I pray to God that Mr. James comes to his senses and stop being arrogant and bias about the entire situation.

    Sanford have been the deputy leader of the party. He recently went to study and came back with remarkable grades in Economics and have been doing a tremendous job with the party since his return. Its only fair that he move up the hierarchy within the party and not down. if he cant move up i recommend he resign from the DWP and join the DLP. Live Mr. James and the rest fight among themselves. Its sad but true.

    Friends, we need to put the interest of Dominica first. Lennox has great leadership skills and will lead a team well. He understands economics,develoment, health care, good services, plight of the poor people and good governance.
    It is also not about Lennox but DOMINICA…My God is that too difficult to comprehend and understand.

    Lennox has the qualities, competencies to lead this country to a path of sustainable development. I think we Dominicans are the issue not Lennox. Let us look within ourselves and consider Dominica for once without all this unnecessary political rhetoric. Dominica needs serious trustworthy people to take this country from the shambles it is in. All the other candidates for leadership are ok and are good people, but I firmly believe at this stage of our development, or under development Lennox is sufficiently disciplined to take on this task. Mamo Dame Charles was in similar situation in the 1980`s and despite all the odds, just like I am hearing of Lennox, she turned the country around and Dominica re gained its respect in the world and she had a team whom many felt among them also could have been leader, but she emerged as this champion for the time, just as Lennox is. Friends, Dominicans, we need to put our heart and hands and will together for Dominica, we are 30 years behind and Skerrit and Labour has killed our economy and Dominica`s growth, they have failed us. I am proud to say that I want to be part of that team because I trust Lennox and his team to be accountable and protect Dominica. They say Mamo never smiled, but she brought back smiles and decency to Dominica and Dominicans. So it is time for change, our poor undeveloped villages and poor people are crying. Our Villages have been prostituted, abused, raped, insulted and our people stretched their hands out daily as beggars for money to survive any given day.
    Lets go forward for a change, for development for Dominica. Lets bring in a new leader, Lennox and his team of Ronnie, Sanford, Thompson, Isaac, Baptiste and all those who have been identified to be part of that team waiting to emerge. They are good trustworthy people. Dominicans lets all move forward, Dominica needs it, it belongs to all of us.

In what way has Lenox demonstrated that he has the skill sets that you outlinned. Be sure to include examples when you noticed those in actions.

    Firstly, please note that in comparison to Skerrit and Alvin Bernard, Isaac and Linton were not persuaded and or motivated by financial infusions to lend themselves to their political party of choice. Secondly, I know Mr. Isaac personally and has met him on many an occasion and I can attest that he is a peoples person, humble, good listener, energetic, youthful, qualified, intelligent, caring, he consults and listens to the concerns of the constituents and would make a perfect candidate MP for the Roseau central area, where I am from. Lastly, The four constituencies that were not present, were primarily due to the fact that the candidacy for these constituencies are not yet decided though there some prominent personnel to fill the vacancies. These constituencies are Roseau south, Grand bay, Vieille case and Portsmouth.

So are you telling me that if the delegates decide to choose for someone else other than LENOX L that there are mecahnisms within our very lol democratic party to override the wishes of the people ? EH BEH LOOK IT.

    MANAGEMENT COMMITEE AND NOMINATIONS COMMITEE and we even hearing ‘ other nominations can be considered on the floor at the delegates conference”…….nah so what do we have within our UWP then is a system where a few will vote for leadership and the remaining lesser posts delegates will vote for them ? What are we coming to ? That sounds like controversy to me,,rubber stamping and makes no sense. We better move a resolution to change all of this. LET THE DULY APPOINTRED DELEGATES OF EACH UWP PARTY BRANCH VOTE FOR ALL THE OFFICES.

    The way we doing things doesn’t make any sense. We are running our party like a mafia dictatorship and telephone calls behind the scenes reaping havoc over our very heads. Now we are hearing that They want to impose some ISSAC person onto us; someone who had been known to be a flip flopper and publicly supporting the policies of this corrupt DLP. Whom do we trust ? We have to be very careful. Some people come on board because LENNOX had to plea to them to become candidates due to their personal friendship and nothing more. I hope we respect Hector, Sandford and Isidore. Look at how quiet Dr. Fontaine is on this matter. No big rahrah from him, he goes about his business quietly and honorably . Thee same applies to Isidore and Sandford but theyre on island and they know just what is going wrong behind the scenes and as a result he had to speak out in declaration of his interests but alas all the damage had been done already.

      Really, well known because he is on Radio spreading propaganda!??!! Skerrit did not need the radio to make him popular to be the Leader and Prime minister of Dominica! He is loved by the people, he is not arrogant because he is very approachable. Unlike Lennox who thinks that he is above all. By the way , Mr. Skerrit also has graduated from 5 th form ( high school) and is A colleague graduate unlike Lennox Linton.
      Linton needs to get him a colleague degree to keep up with all the The Doctodrate candidates who have politician ambitions in the UWP camp.

      I would suggest that Linton be employed by the UWP and be the so called investigative journalist and progpagandrist he is and leave the political areana for those who are able. I guess by now Lennox is trying to be friendly to people but its too late.

    IT IS frightening. It seems that our democracy is being clouded by a lot of non issues and a tremendous power rush is on the way. The UWP clearly has not handled this LEADERSHIP TRANSMISSION MATTER very well at all and the process is to be seriously reviewed and challenged.
    I cannot begin to understand that 4 constituencies were not involved in the process. This is admission by the UWP sends shivers down our collective spine. How do you consider yourself as an alternative government and taking your Historical inadequacies such as por budget response, lack of debate and distrust of current leadership coupled with the perception that your current leader of the opposition is “lame duckish”, weak and not even a contender for leadership of the party he leads in parliament; the ABSENTEE SPAGGS JOHN?
    What we are hearing now is a well organized and ill thought and immorally executed coup detat withing the UWP. Clearly Lenox Linton ‘ a very poor choice of leader, had been eye-ing the leadership for some time now and he was able to be gathered as a media-trooper led by superior general Edison James. So the un-degreed non trained so called Journalist was able to manipulate the minds of unsuspecting members of the UWP and UWP MP’s firstly by getting them to boycott parliament for sometime and hence created a framework for his platform PEOPLES PARLIAMENT ANDlater when his mentor EDDO was returned as leader due to the expected demise of RON GREEN then there was a U-TURN return to parliament…not too long therafter we heard of Lenox’s candidacy pronouncement but with no expressed intent as to what constituency ‘ this deliberate omission was quite significant because it was part of the arrangement to vie for the double but such intend was nt made known then. Running for Marigot would mean obviously not challenging EDDO and hence mentioning in Marigot would have given us the idea that Lenox L would have been preparing his move for the UWP leadership.
    I have been reliably informed that a lot of work was being done behind the scenes.

    The substantial majority of the so called UWP CONSTITUENCY ASSOCIATIONS are either non existent or at best not functioning at all and this factor brings into contention the very LACK OF CREDIBILITY and UNDEMOCRATIC NATURE of the process. Both ISIDORE and SANDFORD etc are in a state of deep shock as to what has happened. Unfortunately what they will find out now will be a definite shock to them. It is now being stated that there will be calls for AN INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION into the SATURDAY ELECTORAL DEBACLE- the findings will send shockwaves through your mind. Was use made of The TALK SHOW monies as a source of bribes to woe individuals who may nt have been mandated to vote on the behalf of their constituents. Very key issues are to be confronted. How many of those persons who claimed to have been the representatives of their constituency groups given the mandate to vote at such elections? Many lament of having heard nothing about such UWP Assoctaion meetings and hence the views expressed at the SAT meetings could not have been representative of that of the people who are members of the Associations where they exist.

    CAN SANFORD/ISIDORE ETC or any of their supporters answer these questions for me ????

    I THINK THAT THE UWP MUST CLEAR THE AIR ON THESE CONCERNS. WHY IS IT THAT ALL 21 CONSTIUTUENCY ASSOCIATIONS WERE NOT REPERESNTED ( DATS NEARLY 20% OF THE ASSOCIATIONS)? IS THERE EVIDENCE OF THE PARTY SUPPORTERS AT ANY OF THE MEETINGS OF UWP ASSOCATIONS? WHERE WERE SUCH MEETINGS HELD? WHAT WERE THE MINUTES OF SUCH MEETINGS? WHERE WERE SUCH MEETINGS HELD ? and WAS THERE ANY RECORD OF ANY DECISION MADE TO VOTE FOR A PARTICULAR CANDIDATE AND WERE SUCH WISHES ADHERED TO AT THE SO CALLED SATURDAY MEETING ? WHAT PROCESSES ARE THERE TO ENSURE THAT IF THE MEMBERS OF THE ASSOCIATIONS MADE A DECISION THAT SUCH DECISION IS FOLLOWED ? DID THE LEADER OF THE PARTY OR ANY CANDIDATE PLAYED ANY ROLE OUTSIDE OF THEIR PARTY BRANCH TO UNFAIRLY INFLUENCE THE PROCESS ?
    DOMINICANS WANT TO KNOW…..

    These issues create a lot of doubts in the minds of those persons who are not too deeply inclined to Labour or Freedom or Pappy or Para or UWP itself ; that so called group of INDEPENDENT VOTERS.

      I agree some questions should be answered and why is Mr. Prevost and Mr.James publicly letting their views be known when September is not yet here why are they trying to influence the race they should not have any preferences at this time they should wait and see like all of us, and then give their comments after the September meeting let’s give everyone a chance and may the best man/women win.
      I would like Lennox to remain right where he is because he’s the only individual who will go to the depth to get the stories and the facts and bring it to us the people and we appreciate that, but he would also be a good person to have in the House one who would be able to deal with that old speaker but wait she wouldn’t be there because the DLP is going to fall like a deck of cards Dominica just cannot move forward with those selfish guys.So UWP get yourself in place and do what is politically correct for all the people’s of Dominica and try not to start off on the wrong footing because ego/power corrupt.
      Mr.James and Mr. Prevost you have done a lot for the people of D’ica and we thank you now that you both have decided to step down and open the door for others to come thru was just what the party needed so try to make sure that the process is working with both of you guiding it along their shouldnt be any preferences.

I am even more bewildered that persons who claim to supporters/members of the party, rather than presenting a united front engage themselves in this level of mindless chatter. One wonders, are they really who they claim to be?
      I am trying to understand and need an explanation of the process by which skerritt became prime minister on Pierro’s death when he was not even a contender for leader of the party. I’m sure Douglas A can tell us and also enlighten us on the process by which candidates will be selected to represent labour in the next elections.
      Sir I also hope that in your effort to discredit Mr Linton, you have made serious allegations which you could be asked to substantiate in a court of law.
      Finally sir, I’d like to ask you. What has suddenly made Hector John so appealing to you to be leader of the UWP? As someone who spent countless hours denegrading him and having stomach full of laughs at his expense, what has changed to make you fall so much in love with him?

    The Puppet Masters excuse is that the leadership contest could divide the Party. And they do not have confidence in Ronnie winning the Mahaut seat and they doh want nothing Carib in their business – beers, wines, malts, sprits, and people.

    Roseau and Grandfond are marginal but competitive seats that can go either way and their candidates for these two seats can be potential ministers of finance, ministers of trade, planning ministers, and in one case foreign minister. The one that gets voted as deputy leader stands a chance to win his seat . The odds are in the doctor’s favor.

    Puppet Masters also taking another look at Tim Tim and keeping their options open for a possible reunion in case results are very close.

    LENNOX you have all the qualities of a leader, and as a former LABOUR PARTY SUPPORTER, I am ready to be on the UWP train for the first time.
    TIME FOR CHANGE. Skerrit and his acolytes cannot even discuss the way forward for Dominica presently. ITS JUST Lennox, Lennox Lennox morning noon and night.
    All the members of the cabal are in total confusion, to the extent that they have forgotten about Dominica and the cabal is feeling the fire, and they are burning. Their bowels are being eviscerated by this news. A FRESH BREEZE IS NOW BLOWING THROUGHOUT THE LENGTH AND BREADTH OF DOMINICA. IT IS TIME FOR LENNOX!!!!!.

    Lennox Linton is not a people person. He is still a big joke to many. The UWP still needs to do a lot to convince the masses that they can bring positive change to the people and country. Skerrit has done a tremendous job, there are still areas for improvement but overall he has served above and beyond. He has set the bar high.

      @ Treasure The key criteria is honesty and integrity. He has them in profusion. HOORAY TO THE GOOD NEWS. HOW LONG? NOT LONG.
      At last Dominicans are starting to see some light at the end of the channel.
      I do not want a good leader to SHAKE NMY HAND, OR SMILE TO ME.
      Do everything to elevate the standard of living of the people, create jobs, stop corruption, do not be greedy,VOWAS,INSULTIVE ETC.

    “Ah singing SANKY until Lennox Come!”

    While I have no doubt that Ronnie and Claudius would do a good job history has shown that they were both unable to win their constituency last election so party leadership at the moment should not be theirs. They need to focus on wining their constituency.

    That is not just great news but very very very very GREAT new indeed. Now tell Skerro and the DLP cabal this is the begining of a NEW Dominica, a land of peace, hope, prosperity and justice for all. I beg all those still in doubt and those on the “sputtering labor diesel engine” train to get off and join the forces of change for the good of the nation and our children by extension. Matter of fact if I was the DLP I would just do the right thing and admit mismanagement and corruption right now and ask for the country’s forgiveness keeping in mind ………..”Change Must Come” :mrgreen:

      Take into consideration Mr. Lintons anti-labour personality. Trust me its good for workers, but bad for our country Dominica.Besides Lennox has not won any seats…he should be given the constituency candidate and take time to learn the runnings of the party before being given leadership role.

      • Shameless
        August 19, 2013

        Lennox is NOT anti-DLP as the current administration would want you to believe. This is just scare tatics to fool the less educated. He is anti corruption and all that goes with it. So DLP supporters and the so called cabal have nothing to fear if they are clean. All we want is good, clean governance and we believe he is the man to remove us from this doldrum we have been dropped into with no way out. Be reminded that…..”Change Must Come”.
