Lennox Linton is UWP’s new political leader;Sanford is deputy

Talk show host, Lennox Linton, has been elected political leader of the United Workers Party (UWP).

Linton has received the endorsement of the UWP’s delegates conference as the party’s replacement for the retiring leader, Edison James.

He was elected to that position just moments ago (Sunday Sepember 01, 2013) at the delegates conference which is now under way at Castle Bruce.

This comes as no surprise as it was widely expected that Linton who is set to replace James as the UWP candidate for the Marigot constituency in the next general election, would also step into James’ shoes as political leader of the party.

Last month, the UWP Nominations Committee selected him as its nominee for the party’s top political position.

Despite party procedure which allows for nominations from the floor at the delegates conference, Linton’s election was viewed by many as a fait accompli.

However, another newcomer, Joseph Isaac, will have to bide his time before becoming Deputy Political Leader of the party as his bid for that position was thwarted by the election of UWP candidate for the Carib Territory, Claudius Sanford, who once held that post.

Isaac is the man who will replace Norris Prevost as the UWP candidate for Roseau Central at the next general election.

Ron Green and Norris Prevost were elected as trustees of the party.

The ruling Dominica Labour Party (DLP), has not been as receptive to the prospect of Lennox Linton at the helm of the opposition UWP.

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit just recently described the expected appointment of the talk show host-turned politician to that position, as “backward and inappropriate”.

He said it was an insult to other competent qualified and hard working well enabling members of the UWP and an “insult to everybody.”

But the unanimous vote given to Linton at Castle Bruce clearly underlines the difference of opinion between Skerrit and the rank and file of the UWP on that issue.

      Ask the UWPwee! Remember, it was the UWPwee who hounded PM Charles and sought to ridicule him because he had no degree. Now, in 2013, they tell us that a university degree does not matter.

      Ok, i agree, but why ask Dominicans to elect a man as PM who cannot even get a regular job in Dominica? By Lennox’s own admission, even his friends ignored his job applications. Yet, Eddo and da bwoys want us to believe that this man can manage Dominica? Ehbeh look jokes.

    Congratulations to Linton and his family. I must truthfully declare that Lennox delivered a wonderful and inspiring speech yesterday. We must all admit that we have not heard an inspirational speech in more than 15 years.

    Leaders are suppose to inspire people and Skerrit has and had never been able to inspire people. One impediment to Mr Skerrit is his self serving motivation – a greedy and avaricious person cannot inspire people – no way no way. The people that surround Mr Skerrit are even worse.

    I was somewhat disappointed that Lennox did not expound on the plan of the party to prosecute the many crimes committed against the state- the money launderers, the fire bombers- the pursuance of state properties in the form of Villas, hidden accounts, mansions way beyond legal income etc.

    Congratulations to Mr. Linton and all the other elected officials of the United Workers Party!!

    It is now clear that the momentum is with the UWP.

    Lennox’s acceptance speech was worldclass! I have followed politics and political speeches in Dominica and I have not heard a speech of such high level before. In my view, the closest we have gotten to this quality was maybe Athie and the Alliance boys in the early 1980s and Rosie in his heyday!!

    The speech was uplifting and void of any name-calling and mepuis. I may be wrong but I don’t believe I heard Skerrit’s name mentioned not even once in the entire speech.

    Lennox gave an excellent diagnosis of Dominica’s socio-economic ills. I admit that I did not even realised that we were last in the OECS in so many economic indicators (job creation, economic growth, agricultural output etc.). Then he presented a strategic economic framework to remedy the situation.

    He energised his supporters and gave hope to thousands of Dominicans at home and abroad that better days are coming.

    This is a man I feel proud to follow!!

    It is a hard ax for Labour to follow and Labourites ought to be feeling pretty deflated now!!

    The Labour Party built their strategy around one man and now that this man has been unmasked they feel naked.

    I would not be surprised if we see some desparate moves at the Labour Party conference in Point Michel.

    After last night, one thing is clear: Labour will surely be defeated in the next General Elections! The only question now is how big will be the defeat!!

      And even without a degree, Lennox is able to speak so eloquently and discuss and deliberate issues in a much more intellectual way than Skerrit. If had a degree he would Skerrit would not just tremble but he would definetly run for cover.
      Having said that Lennox’s intellect, managerial capacity,logical thinking skills, and team building ability positions him to be an excellent candidate for Prime Minister. Just remember that when your beloved Skerrit got into politics he was only a teacher.

    • Ehhh

      The message he is sending to kids is, you can be as poor as can b, you may not have finished high school and your parents may not have the money to send you to collage or university , but with hard work, honesty and integrity you can be anything you want to be in your life. never give up, never let people think they are better than you. that’s the message . A basics degree does not make you wiser , smarter more honest than the one who does not .

      I have university degrees and people like you that think a degree makes you better than anybody else makes me sick. What a man gets from studying is mostly what he puts in, and to think that simply having a degree qualifies you is naive. From listening to Mr linton over the years I have no doubts that this man is very educated. it’s more about having the knowledge and wisdom than having a piece of paper when it comes to doing the work.go tell Bill Gates he was not qualified to lead a group of educated people with all kinds of degrees. Think before you write.

  37. ROSEAU VALLEY
    September 1, 2013

    We wish to congratulate the leadership of the UWP. In particular, we wish to congratulate Mr. Lennox Linton and his deputy Mr. Sanford. We wish you all the very best.

    However, with all due respect, we were a bit taken aback by the contents and style of Mr. Sanford’s acceptance speech. We wondered why he failed to congratulate Mr. Linton-his new leader. We are disappointed that as the new Deputy Leader, Mr. Sanford may have allowed the excitement of the moment to get the better of him.

    Why did Sanford see it necessary to go on a limb and a frolic of his own to highlight his academic achievements and qualifications as the platform for his candidacy? We got it Claudius. We recognize your academic qualifications but in context of the overall picture and in the interest of team building, there was no need for such an emphasis today as if to send a message to someone.

    We express the above disappointment although we do not necessarily agree with the views opined by Mr. Joseph Issac on the Heng with Ms. Kamala Aaron in which he appeared to be devaluing a university /”Degreed” education as just a piece of paper to be stored in a cabinet after years of studies.

    The fact that Lennox does not have a degree is a legitimate issue for discussion but that does not mean he cannot be an effective leader of the UWP and the Prime Minister of the country. As he has demonstrated over the years and certainly demonstrated today, he is very competent and capable. In fact, Lennox has adequately addressed the matter and acknowledged that he does not have a degree. He has never represented himself to be a “Degreed” person. So let’s just get over this and move on in the interest of our country’s development. The fact that Claudius seems to have over-emphasized his academic qualifications in his acceptance speech, sucked out some oxygen from the moment.

    Education is not a degree and a degree is not just a piece of paper. Education is defined as acquiring skills and the training/development of one’s mind to function at a higher level. Yet, not everyone with a degree can function at a high level. Many have been very successful and performed at a very high level without a university education- the list of local, regional and international success stories are endless.

    The process of acquiring higher education can be done through life’s experiences and through informal, self leaning as Lennox has evidently done as well as formal university training and learning as Mr. Sanford has. There are many different ways of acquiring education. Formal education through school/college/university is not the only place or setting in which one can learn or get an education. Higher education does not mean receiving a bachelor’s degree or certification. As a friend recently expressed in a recent facebook chat, “Education is one thing. Discernment and wisdom are another.”

    Higher/formal education is important and should not be devalued but the lack of it does not eliminate a good candidate, representative or leader. Congratulations on your degree, Mr. Stanford but we believe you exhibited a low level wisdom and discernment today.

    Respectfully

      I am amazed at you ” Roseau Valley”, you seen to be a positive and fair critic.I wish more contributors to DNO would come with some sensible comments. The truth is, Infrastructural development is not the only type of development. Yes we have roads, and buildings but we also need to build a positive middle class. people need to be economically empowered. under this regime (Labour) the middle class has been almost destroyed. almost every productive sector has been destroyed. To be honest, under the leadership of UWP (1995-2000), Dominicans were more empowered.

Then two world lass resorts like Hyatt, Holiday Inn etc, a world lass watermark, added to our natural sites. hen let’s make Dominica a hotspot (free Wif) spot in the Caribbean, so as to attract all these Internet marketers like me. DA will make oodles of $$$$$$$. Let’s build Call Centers in DA, like they have in the Phillipines, Pakistan, India etc. Thats the new way of work. no more talk of investors coming in to build factories. Investors dont like taking 3 different flights to get to their place of business. These new tech and online work is done from your laptop. It offers competitive wages to these young kids. I know. I have employees in the Phillipines and Bangladesh etc. I work from my laptop and home-office. I can help. The world is moving fast. We are lagging behind. And Red Clinic should be ERADICATED FOR LIFE!!!!!! It MUST be outlawed from the Dominican psyche. I can help. for zero $$$$$$. I am NOT a politician. Just someone who has gone thru the ropes, is a businesswoman and badly wants to see DA prosper. This is our big chance. Let’s give Mr Linton a chance to prove. Come ye forward sons and daughters! I proudly present myself as a daughter!

If this bickering and back stabbing and trying to hurt each other continues its will surely show in the vote counts at the next elections on both sides there are people who are just going to stay away from the polls an I have already heard people saying that if this bickering and trying to hurt people don’t stop

    Congrats to Mr. Lenox Linton, the UWP, and all of Dominica! You did it and sure made all of us very proud.
    Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit just recently described the expected appointment of the talk show host-turned politician to that position, as “backward and inappropriate”.

    Mr. Skerrit, “Fear no more.” since you think it is a backward and inappropriate move, then I have one word of encouragement for you. Here is my advise sir: Capitalize on this “backward and inappropriate” move and call an election now. This is the best time for you to call an election and if you are not afraid call an election and you will see how backward and inappropriate to vote you again. We waiting for you Skerrit. As a matter of fact, when you lose I will tell you about a job I have reserved for you because during your tenure you proved to all of us what you are really qualified for.

Mr. Skerrit only has a first degree in psychology. Ambrose George, Julius Timothy, Rayburn Blackmoore and Alvin Bernard are holders of Masters Degree. Ian Douglas is a lawyer so what?

  70. The Authorities
    September 1, 2013

    Upon doing some research, we The Authorities have stumbled upon a fact about the Honourable Prime Minister’s mentor E.O.LeBlanc which “rubbishes” PM Skerrit’s claim about Mr, Linton:

    http://www.theguardian.com/news/2004/dec/18/guardianobituaries

    “LeBlanc was born in the northern village of Vieille Case, educated at its government school and then took a course in agriculture at the Imperial College of Tropical Agriculture, Trinidad in 1944.”

    Terms like “backward and inappropriate” were the exact words used by Mr, LeBlanc’s opponents in reference to his “lack of education to run the country.”

    We The Authorities have since instructed the Honourable Prime Minister Skerrit to say nothing unless it is approved by us.

    • lord help us
      September 1, 2013

      @The Authorities, you got that straight from the oven. I never realized that the great, humble, hard working, honest, father of our nation, Hon. Edward Oliver Leblanc did not even attend High School and yet was the greatest leader the nation has known. I know those DLP will say that was in the 60’s and we now in 2013. However, character will stand in any era.
      Another thing that had me to think after reading the article is the humble simple house he built right next to the sea at Oh park (not sure about the proper spelling) after how many years of humble service. You compare his house with the mansion of a certain leader who just started yesterday. On top of that, you know who was EO Leblanc’s biggest political foe and that of the DLP Leblanc in Vielle case? Well I will not answer but will allow the Hon Skerrit to tell us since he is from Vielle case.

      Times have changed. We are in the 21st century, the year, 2013. Higher education, credentials and experience are definitely an asset and appropriate which should be required and necessary for one who assumes the prime minister-ship of a country, be it in the West Indies, Dominica.
      Furthermore, we no longer have a Chief Minister but a Prime Minister. This should indicate to you the change and educationally. Expectations for the post of PM are higher.
      Surely, you should know that. You who consistently criticize him, who think you are intelligent and know more than the PM without this education and experience.

      Beware how you pray and for what. God knows your heart. He will not be used for evil and evil motives. He cannot be deceived.
      When you pray to God ensure that you are doing so with a pure heart of love and not an insincere and vindictive one. Otherwise your prayers will not be answered. If per chance they are answered, God will give you exactly what you want which may prove to be a hanger for your jacket, one, in the long run you will not be able to accept and deal with.

        Place the shoe where it fits and the blame where it fits. The problem with some of you is you blame the government for everything, for your shortcomings and failures and not yourselves. This is where some of you have projected that you are unfair. Only the gullible and naive will totally agree with you.
        How many among those families you stated attended school, remained in school, completed it, passed their exams and obtained a certificate which would qualify them for obtaining employment and a decent paying job?
        How many have been serious-minded nationals who were interested in obtaining employment and who sought it?
        How many have ever worked since they were of adult age?

      Why bring the name of God into it? This is calling His Most Holy Name in vain. It is a grievous/mortal sin to do so, The Third Commandment of God. You will bear the consequences. In your mortal and spiritual ignorance, some of you will bring down curses rather than blessing.
      This is only a delegates’ conference whereby a leader for their Party was chosen. It is not a national election which is many months away.

    Let us put our shoulders to the wheel and strive to improve our country. We need to have constructive plans, foresight into our problems and issues, a vision to make life better for all Dominicans, our children and grandchildren and for many generations to come. Let us seek to advance Dominica in this 21st century, let us make Dominica what it used to be before in terms of human relations, safety, security, truth, righteousness and justice. We need to let our good conscience guide us and let HONESTY, INTEGRITY, AND JUSTICE PREVAIL.

    God bless you and guide you Lennox Linton…it is not an easy position and challenge that you have taken on. I know because I saw first hand the back biting that goes on within political parties unless you treat some of the adult negroes like slaves-Skerro style. It is sad but it is true….. So oyu going to need serious strength and support from your family close friends and inner circle. But God’s speed and pray for you because someone of worth had to put up their hand and step up to the plate for DOminica and you have. Lots of people sit back because dey eh want to be in dat politics thing dere nuh.. but you have stepped up in the face some serious odds and personal sacrifice down the road….so thank you too.

    If you do come to be PM you will have another mountain to climb, backwards pushing a bolders. It aint easy my brother but I will do all I can to support you…I hope others do the same. Dominica needs all of us its sons and daughters.

    God Bless, God’s Speed and Protection, Lennox

      you right, my compatriot!!! but there are those out there who are willing and very able to help in more ways than one. we now have to each play a part in mobilising and rally to get this backward thinking, unproductive government out of power, we have lost time but its not too late for us to claw our way out of this mire. i hope a change can attract those who live abroad to come back and invest and share their knowledge. keep in mind that all we really need in Dominica is a government who represents the people, all the people as there is value is listening and considering those who are opposing view. once the enabling environment is created, where victimisation is not the order of the day and where opportunities are afforded based on the value of the ideas and the practicality of plans rather than the colour which one may have supported or voted, i see this resource rich country like ours becoming the engine of growth in the OECS

      @Yardie, in reading your comments I could literally sense your fear and panic. I understand very well that you have to sing for your supper; However, I have good news for you “Fear no more” because Lenox Linton and the UWP are not there to take your supper from you but instead will help you earn not just your supper but your future. You will not have to beg for your next meal as is the case of so many Dominicans under this present DLP administration. What the UWP will offer in terms of nation building is simple: our people that have found themselves admitted to the RED CLINIC without any hope for their future, Will finally get their release from that clinic and begin to shout on the streets of Dominica, “We are free, free, free at last; thank God Almighty we are free”, and delivered from the yoke of Skerrit, and are able to contribute in a meaningful way towards nation building and a future again.

    SACRILEGE IN LEADERSHIP

    Dear Dominica

    Please find attached The sermon of Reverend Peter R Augustine

    This is a simple message from one of God’s anointed.

    For preaching the word of god the crown prince leader of the UWP
    has threatened blasphemously to interfere with the lords anointed.

    Is this the man that Eddison James has anointed to be the chosen one. Imagine that? sacrilege

      Who is which lord anointed? Have you ever heard Peter Augustine preach against any of the sins committed by the members of the Labour Party? Well I have but that was a very longtime ago. He did against labour when freedom party was trying to get into office and again when UWP was in office but he has never done so since skerritt is in office.

      @ B O, I don’t know what Rev. Peter R Augustine said and I don’t doubt his anointing. What I question is his spiritual silence at a time when evil and sin are seem to be so rampant among his political friends. What did the anointed servant say when a government minister referred to Skerrit as “Jesus” and Mr. James as “Barabas”? What did the anointed servant say when it was known to him that a certain person he refers to as “Blessed of God”, silently got married to a spouse he knew was already married and yet was having comess with her while married?
      FYI, I am a preacher of the gospel and if a person that is supposed to be anointed has allowed dirty politics to crash with his preaching anointing, he has a right to be trashed as a politician just as if you kill a witch as a witch the law will not hold you guity; but if you kill a person that is a witch in their human form then the law will condemn you. Peter cannot fool me again like he did in the days of UWP when he would always call us to protest even when the UWP thought of making Sunday a work day but today that same Peter is in bed with corrupted leaders that are walking corruptly. Tell Peter and the others to fix their bed. Again DNO this is not an attack on Peter but rather in response to what this commentator said so please do not dump me because we need to hear both sides. For this person to say that Lenox will has threatened to take care of my good friend Peter R Augustine for PREACHING THE WORD OF GOD is false, misleading and murderous and is just their way of getting people of faith against Lenox just as they tried to get the church against Obama by calling him Muslem and other names.

    Let me take the opportunity to congratulate this great man of the soil,for the yeoman service he has given to Dominica in the area journalism, and the championing of good and accountable government on island. This is a forward looking and extremely good choice/move by the UWP,as the party is well poised to take over the mantle of leadership once more in Dominica.
    As a former Labourite myself, i have jumped ship for the sake of Dominica, and I am now a hardened supporter of the UWP, AND an AVID SUPPORTER OF CHANGE IN DOMINICA.
    He (Lennox)is eloquent,smart,understands worldly events and circumstances, a team person, a good communicator, a man Dominica needs now more than ever before.
    HOORAY HOORAY HOORAY for the good news!!!!!
