Linton responds to Skerrit attack with ‘Real Change’ memo

UWP leader Lennox Linton

Opposition Leader, Lennox Linton has responded to a barrage of criticism leveled against him and his party by prime minister Roosevelt Skerrit with what he described as a “Real Change” memo.

Skerrit spent a major part of his address at the launch recently, of the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) candidate for the Morne/Jaune Riviere Cyrique constituency, blasting Linton and his party.

Dominica will be “hopeless and in despair” if Linton were to become prime minister, Skerrit said and questioned the ability of the UWP and his party to get the money to finance any development in the country.

He warned his supporters that if the UWP gets into office, it will end the so-called RED Clinic and shut the doors to the office of the prime minister in the faces Dominicans and warned his followers about the “dirty political tactics” being employed by the UWP in order to win the election.

In his “Real Change” memo, dated April 30th, 2019,  Linton pointed out that Skerrit seemed “very upset, angry and out of control.”

He accused the DLP leader of having failed Dominica.

“But you have done very well for yourself by driving people into poverty and dependency,” Linton observed. “And then tricking and deceiving them into believing that you love poor people when in fact you only love people to be poor.”

Linton reminded Skerrit, in his memo, that people want change, “real change.”

“You can call my name a million times and manufacture the worse things to say about me every time you open your mouth to speak about Dominica; it matters not,” the UWP leader stated.

      Hon Linton is this experienced, trusted, experienced person that Dominica needs at this stage to return our Domininca and governance to that level of decency and good governance that we cry for and deserve to get our people from corruption, poverty, receiving handouts, Bobol operated by the current failed PM Skerrit. This failed incompetent Labour Government and appears ably supported by blind supporters who are in denial that something is happening in Domininca when we, as civil servants laugh and cry everyday to see the deterioration of our Dominica by this failed, incompetent, useless, immature Skerrit as this Odd Minister who has failed big time in reducing our people to beggars and come to him for cash. That is an insult, robbery, thievery, deceitfulness and childish by this failed PM who should have never been Prime Minister of our Dominica. Skerrit has failed us, killed our agricultural sector where our farmers worked hard and now operated Red Clinic insulting us. Skerrit Out

    I am one of those that use to say change is a must. But After visiting Dominica couple weeks ago and driving around letting my eyes boil my peas. I had a different attitude about things. After the hurricane people said that Dominica finish. I saw things differently and strongly believe that this prime minster deserves a next 5 more years.

      Washington, you seem to way out of touch, out of line and wayward in your perception of the current dilapidated situation in Domininca. For 19 years these Labour incompetent clowns have been in office and have produced noting of substantial ininca to that level of political decency and profesiinallus but we experience bobol” corrupt on HIGH EVELDIALY BY THIS FAILED incompetent, failed boyish Skerrit. Skerrit has nothing to contribute to Dominica is a novice, mature and has ruined our nature island, inhigh poverty , unemployment, no business future, all these are gone as our people suffer.

    This is what i dont understand with Lennox. Why is he so distracted by ready to inhale every fart that is purged off Skerrit’s butt? Why is he so easily ready to sniff every sneeze off Skerrit’s body?. Lennox stop being silly. Skerrit have you at his finger tips. Cant you see what he is doing? While he is meeting people in communities, building relationships and friendship, you are on radio making a fool of yourself. You cant win general elections with that style of politics. Forget debate. Its not going to happen. This man is using his psychological manipulation on you and you are falling for it. He is baiting you. So you can spend your time talking about him. You are a loser. You need to step down and let Ronald Charles lead the party. People are running away from your style and personality. Wake up man.

      John, Failed Skerrit and his bind supporters, They go at Hon Linton and Hon Linton responds appropriately and swiftly to dismiss the illiterate thoughts of your failed, immature, boyish Odd Minister. Skerrit has killed our economy, our agricultural exports are gone and Blind John, that is where you should be concerned and not waste your time and our time talking of failed, childish Skerrit and his corrupt Labour government. John, are you in denial that the Bin Bobol and Fertilizer Bobol took place? That was thievery and it appears you hide this scam and thievery of this Skerrit failed labour government and you want to jump at Hon Linton, who is prepared to return our Dominica to some level of decency, that has been ruined by your failed incompetent Skerrit, ignorant and immature of the bigger picture of what socio-economic development is all about. Skerrit created a fraudulent scheme called Red Clinic, an offence and appears thievery and he needs to be arrested for fraud. Skerrit Out

Skerrit must Go… Get Lost, Go away and repent for the distruction y9ou have created killed our economy, reduce our people to beggars and we sold our passports to nefarious people all over the place. We need an audit and to be accounted for our resources that has ben abused under this failed Skerrit incompetent corrupt Labour government.

    Bullies are something else. When The Lean Oxx was harassing the PM over French nationality and villas, no problem, when he was playing investigative reported on Q95, silence from the PM.
    For over 4 years he has been on radio nearly every day disparaging the PM. He has been on CNN and had meetings overseas talking like he had Skerrit for coffee, breakfast, lunch and dinner with all kinds of verbal assassinations. Skerrit….”very upset angry and out of control.” Wow ! Skerrit can “call my name a million times.” Wow…Wow.
    Bullies cannot believe it when victims hit back with more fury and harder than they receive. They expect you to stay down, let them walk all over you and kick you in the face and expect you to say nothing.
    So the PM should say nothing and let you bully him to the grave. Like Hon Austrie said “Skerrit is too nice.” No more Mr nice guy. All gloves are off.
    Just look at the body language of this ugly bull, this no face, bold face grinch with clench…

      Skerrit is a big joke and a big failure. It is time that he goes , he has nothing of substance to contribute. The biggest failure in Domininca. Never again must Dominicans pick up a young immature boyish politician to run our Domininca. Skerrit has been this big failure and he must never again be PM, or be in any cabinet, apart from the one in his house. Skerrit stay away form Dominica`s development, that you have failed us in. Examine this list of failures under Skerrit and his Rouge failed, corrupt labour government. As far as exports are concerned, here is the list under Skerrit. In production and exports there No more limes, bananas, grapefruit, provisions etc,. Our passports are sold to all nefarious and ole teeth foreigners and we seem not know how much we earned and where the money is located. We need transparency, not denial, lies, forgery. We need answers. And please remember, Skerrit and his rogue failed Labour government must Go. They failed us and killed our resources.

    Linton, shut your mouth 👄 go away mama look a booboo there. Linton as i have said before you and i grew up in Pottersville Steber Street area and you are the same old trouble Linton out for a fight. It’s time at your old age to get that ridiculous ghost out of your head Linton, you need help. We have had our school boy squad up and that was it, people see you for what you are but an idiot.. I do know lots more about you as a young man but i would never bring it out to the public Linton, it is the way you goes about things i and the majority of the people would not wants you as a prime minister No way Linton you don’t have what it takes to be a leader up front!!!!

      You are the one talking about Linton IQ, and now his age, if you both grew up on Steber street, and “fight” that means you are as old as him! That is the first truth you might have told your entire life, so see you little rat, I might know you.
      Here is something for you: IQ= MA/CA X 100

       If the mental age is the same as chronological age, then the individual’s IQ is 100; if the mental age is above chronological age, the IQ is more than 100; if the mental age is below chronological age, the of that individual is less than 100.

      Score above 100 are considered above the the average, those noticeable below average; i.e. a six 6-year old child with a mental age of 8 would have an IQ of 133.
      Whereas an 6-year old with a mental age of 5 would have a IQ of 83.

      So you see little Man Dog, Lennox IQ higher than yours and Skerrit combined!

      Man STOP being so insultive to a fellow Dcan and agree to disagree. Its ok to see the road to progress through different lenses. Is that what the SLP (Skerrit Labour Party) is all about? You grew up with Linton and know who is / was so why don’t you be a man and approach him and offer friendly advise you deem necessary? Sadly Mr. Linton knows who you are but refuse to denigrate you or your family. That is the hallmark of patriotism and respect.

      The demonic image cultivated by some who fear his honesty and passion for a free and prosperous Dominica is quickly unraveling because we as a people have evolved after 19 years of oppression. Your personal attacks on Mr.Linton will NOT stop the REAL CHANGE MOVEMENT engulfing the nation and its patriots far and wide. Remember, at the end of the day we are all fellow Dominicans/ Kubulians.

      Why should LInton shut his mouth? He is the leader of the opposition and the mouth piece for the PEOPLE. He has to speak for the people and he is not going anywhere.
      Yea, come to think of it , its a real shame that he actually grew up with someone like you in Potters Ville.
      At his age? The ghost? He needs help? But truly he is not even concerned about that , and he is really concerned about helping the people and the country. Maybe you all were idiots then , but he is no idiot now. Haven’t you heard over the past years how the man has been expressing himself with calm, clarity and dignity compare to the ranting and raving of Skerrit? He may be a fighter yes but in these times you got to be a fighter or you wont make it. Actually a lot of people want a change and they do want LINTON. He is the leader for change that the coountry needs now now now. Stop hating M.B.D

      Recall that your so called PM has a questions to answer re our finances, and to recall the Bin Bobol and Fertilizer Bobol. That is where your focus should be. Hon Linton is safe, transparent and openminded. The issue that affects Dominica’s failure is well rested n the hands of your failed PM Skerrit, and he will go, he mist Go, He will be gone. Then he will ne invited to account for the Bin Bool, Fertilizer Bobol, passports scams etc etc. The list is long.

    Any one who would be deceived to believe the lie that Skerritt is pedaling that Linton won’t be able to get money to do the work of running the country is a moron. Friendly countries and organizations don’t lend support to Dominica because Skerritt is the leader, no, if they are friends of Dominica and want to make a contribution to our national development, it matters not who the leader is, because it’s not a personality issue. Consider the radical stances that Skerritt has taken against the USA and yet the country continues to receive assistance from the US. Foreign countries and organizations have and will continue to provide assistance for the development of Dominica no matter who is Prime minister. Skerritt put that in your pipe and smoke it. Utter nonsense you are speaking

      We know that your government is a failure and your leader has failed to deliver on socio-economic development, but he is a Dominican and be remined that the office of Prime Minister does not belongs to him.

There are way too many greedy people taking avangtage of the current system and the PM know, he know the greedy people but since they are part of the click they keep getting. The red clinic is not just the long lines you see outside financial center. The millionaires are part of it too, they get their share before the poor get the crumps.

    “But you have done very well for yourself by driving people into poverty and dependency,” Linton observed.–News article

    Lennox, you have been singing that song for the past 5 years, but the more you sing, it is the more it seems that you are singing to death ears.

    Have you ever thought that people, like you, could invest your money to start a business that would employ people so to reduce the unemployment rate?

    You should know very well that the Government cannot do it alone. Where would the revenue come from if everyone worked for the Government–whatever the job?

    You need a better way to attract the people of Dominica to listen to you and to desire to choose you as their Primary Leader of Government and that is factual. Your present mentality is bad for your party and very shameful to the majority of Dominicans.

I am not a traitor and an enemy of state who went to North America last month to tell Dominicans that they cannot return home to vote as though they have suddenly be denied their citizenship. And I AM NOT YOUR BOY. Get off that belittling attitude that you share with that ugly bull Leader Lean-oox . When he was on radio the young PM called him mister and Sir, with due respect. But Lean-oxx cannot understand and accept that the “LITTLE BOY” is now the youngest PM in the whole wide world with double doctorates. Pure envy and “jarloozy.” And I do not need your hypocritical wishes of good luck. I have a dossier on your gang banger mobster leader that goes back to elementary school when he fought kids for their recess .And when he fought kids in high school and curse teachers and was expelled. May 29, 1979 and DCP is in…

        Sorry not coffee “PEPPER” cut bananas and plant peppers. So you could cook a pot of peppers for food and eat some ripe peppers as fruit. And people believe that. They even had school kids in procession shouting “no bananas no D A on the streets of Roseau

    Let’s all be honest. Mr. Skerrit behaves like a thug, Linton responds like the statesman he is. Skerrit words are divisive and jarring, Linton’s cohesive and responsible. Listening to Skerrit gives you a disorienting feeling, to Linton comes an aspirational feeling of pride and patriotism. If one were to juxtapose Linton’s and Skerrit’s presentations; Linton’s vegetables and steak, Skerrit’s burnt roasted breadfruit and raw saltfish. The choice is clear, Linton over Skerrit every time.

      You must not be Dominican, because ‘Yampeh Woti’ and salt fish is like a National delicacy. Any true patriot would chose this home grown goodness(Skerrit) over this injected beef and GMO vegetables(Linton) any day!

        Uncooked sallfish and over roasted breadfruit, who wants that? That leads to dysentery, indigestion , gastroenteritis and hypertension. I enjoy breadfruit and selfish when they are well cooked. Skerrit is crude, coarse, ill-mannered, uncouth and belligerent, no good leadership qualities. By contrast, Linton is thoughtful, introspective, erudite, eloquent and taciturn. He, Mr. Linton, he has articulated a futuristic vision for Dominica where no one will be left behind regardless of political affiliation or social status. All will be given an opportunity to fulfill their God-given potential.

    It is disgusting to see a news organization peddling such inaccuracies time and time again. Tell me where is the decency and moral values of the UWP leadership, going overseas and spreading false propaganda! Lenox Linton, where is your patriotism and love for the place of your birth? Why are you perpetuating such myths about the island, it is outrageous! I am a retired veteran, who has moved back to the land of my birth and I am leaving comfortable on $1000.00 monthly, including paying my bills. I left the life of the glitts and glamour to a life of contentment and tranquility in Dominica. To those of you outside of Dominica, who wants to listen to this con and smooth talking liared, you are wasting your time. Why would you go overseas to promote your self and have not done nothing for the elderly, youths, marginalized and the vagrants etc. ! Ask the man to let you see his portfolio. This man lifestyle is that of the rich and infamous. Your money will be paying Pinard Bird soon.

      If someone criticize the government for all their corrupt dealings and gross incompetence , is that person unpatriotic? NO! The present administration is one of the most corrupt jurisdictions in the world. International crooks and fugitives are given refuge in Dominica, $100 000 000 PetroCaribe money disappeared in thin air, garbage bins and fertilizer scandals, CBI money and sale of passports shrouded in secrecy, millions of dollars in donations post Maria and no proper accounting nor transparency. Does talking about these fraudulent, criminal actions make me unpatriotic? Sometimes is not what you do but what you don’t do makes you complicit in a crime. If Mr. Linton or any other Dominican keeps quiet while the corrupt leader, ministers and their cronies plunder the country, they too, should be ‘charged’ with complicity to corruption.

      So its true he is living in an upscale high price villa type home in a high urban society area.
      I thought he was living in his native village of Marigot. An epic beautiful place in the North East. I guess the place is not important enough for him. That is why he and his gang members refer to the PM as country-bookey .Wow ! In this day and age ….”.country bookey?”

    So basically the PM is saying that if DLP does not win he can’t give out any hand-outs. Therefore vote for DLP so that we can keep you begging for hand-outs at red clinic.

    UWP will not give hand-outs and it is MY opinion that the first 18 to 24 months will be hard on those who depend on Red Clinic. It shall not be replaced with Blue clinic thus that money will be invested to develop the country. It will take time but we will be on our feet.

    Common sense: if I have 100 beggars and rather than giving them hand-outs every week, I empower 10 then later down the road that 10 will empower another 10. In the long run we will stand independent on our feet as A Stronger Nation.

    Skerrit totally forgot it was a launching. Poor Gretta! Skerrit made you a loser!!!He did like a fierce rottweiler, and sprung on Linton, who lifted the compulsive liar, and lightweight up and “”burst him down””. He (Skerrit) was frothing and foaming during his inarticulte and incoherent speech. He smirked and frowned. It’s still early in the campaign .It will get worse, as lazy Skerrit is now realising that the carpet is being yanked from under his feet!! Wicked leader,!!

      God bless and will continue to bless Domimica under Skerritt leadership. I thought the one china policy was wrong. I thought going out to diaspora was wrong. I thought the salary given to the aged folks was so wrong that the hopeful candidate has assured the aged folks if he wins Skerritt he will double it. What is wrong and what is right? Which lane is linton driving in? I dont think he is aware so someone need to remind him to stay in his lane
      Stop blowing hot and cold. Stick to your policies. You hitting a man on things you think are wrong and you and your hopeful are doing the same things. So what is the change you are bringing?

    Linton’s response is succinct, compendious and should hurt our lazy PM.Those days Skerrit’s vile and out of control rhetoric is signs that he is having sleepless nights!
    His ignorance drove him to intimate once more that countries deal with Skerrit, and not with the country Dominica. He lies in profusion, because he is cornered, entangled and is looking to extricate himself …
    Skerrit despite your weakness in English, please accept the challenge to debate honourable Linton…
    Your lazy MISLEADER, which country would deal with you as an individual??A rogue country? A pariah state?

      The same thing that Linton is accusing Skerrit of doing, which you support Linton on, is the same thing you keep doing day in, day out. it doesn’t matter what topic or what happens or where it happens you must include Skerrit in it. You must live a very sad life if every word you utter is hatred directed towards the PM.

      Is your comment based on having read the so called “Real Change” memo because there is nothing succinct here … just two sentences/quotes by DNO. Also, does one really compare a speech given at a political rally to a “memo”? Different context; different audience. It appears that Lennox Linton could say’write: “The big red fox jumped quickly over the lazy blue dog” and he would be applauded as a genius.

      For the record, the most divisive political rhetoric that I have ever heard have come from Mr. Linton and the UWP.

      So Zero % the whole idea is “to hurt” the PM. That is why the opposition gang members are calling for a debate. Is this a trap an ambush plan like the ides of march in Shakespere Julius Ceasar? Only it will be the ides of May with a rain of stones ? Well thanks for the warning.

      Lenox Linton you are devious and deceitful that only your loyal supporters will believe you. Build your campaign on YOUR accomplishments. Give us a quick analysis of you and your party’s accomplishments since the hurrican. Get out of that childishly behavior and give us meaningful measurable goals. It’s been 4 years and on a daily basis you are sing the same old rhythm, Skerro must go. What have you done in elevating the plight of those who are suffering. Instead of you helping those who bleeding, on a monthly basis you are going overseas and bashin the country. EMPTY BARREL %. GIVE BACK, not lip service.
