James may become political leader of UWP; Linton to run for political office

James (left), Linton

Edison James may once again become political leader of the United Workers Party (UWP).

Dominica News Online (DNO) has confirmed that the Chairmen of the Constituency Associations of the UWP, at a meeting held on Saturday, unanimously selected James as their nominee for the party’s delegates conference carded for the 8th of January 2012 at La Plaine.

However, DNO has learnt that James’ nomination by the Constituency Associations must first be presented to the Management Committee of the party which will then send its report to the UWP delegates conference. Also, even if James was the sole nominee of the party’s constituency associations, the party’s rules allow for other nominations to be made at the delegates conference.

In more political news Radio Talk Show Host, Lennox Linton on Saturday announced on his radio show “Between You and Me” that he would be running for political office at the next general election. However, Linton said he had not decided which constituency he would be contesting.

Dominica News Online will follow both developments closely and bring you more information as it becomes available.

    u people are missing the point as usual. sometimes it doesnot make sense explaining things because no matter what u all will not understand because u all are so blinded. Carefully listen to Lennox Linton explanation as he gave on weekly headlines on sunday night.Go to q95 podcast and for once listen critically. Its all about making Dominca better for the future generation. and yes for ur children too. If u all dont understand the character of a person u will never understand again.

    FELLOW CITIZENS

    I herebu declare my candidacy for the ruling united winning party.

    My real intersts is to be the leader but there is a particular process to be followed.

    I am prepared to under-study my political mentor and after our pending defeat at the next general elections I shall make my next major move but first I have to win Wesley/Roso Central or Roso south ( if ATHIE/WALTER G ALLOWS ME ). but this is not really a problem for 2019/2020 because by then I would have Marigot all for myself. I am not too concerned about winning any seat in 2014/2015 I know it will be difficult and with Eddo as party leader he has to keep running for marigot.

    Fellow citizens we have to understand that we are a party in transistion. We are tha banana party. Th base of uwp will remain to be in marigot. recent election results indicate that we are losing some support in salisbury and clearly the people of this country dont take MR Jogn that seriously. Its not something personal but its the reality.

    My people I will use my skills and expertise to help develop my country. I have the blessings of my family and friends in this regard. I am a man of my convictions. I dont expect everyone to like me because am not in a position to love everyone; such is the trye facts of life. I hate no one but I know; because of the way I speak and the positions I hold people hate me. I know where my love is located and I am comforted by this.

    I will not say that I am a saint or that I will make NEW MISTAKES as pj had said but I will continue to work tirelessly for the advancement of my country in all ethical ways possible.

        December 20, 2011

        I agree with Shy. Fact is that James was rejected by the elctorate after less than five years in office and was rejected again twice more. Many Dominicans do not support the present regime but that does not mean that they are in favour of James, who can be seen as an obstacle to his party having a substantial presence in parliamment again. Sometimes we have to swallow pride and put our ego in the closet for the common good.

    DNO POLL: Lennox Linton, the most popular Dominican journalist Thursday, December 2nd, 2010 at 3:13 PM.

    This is what i wrote on that story back then.

    Journalism in DA is in the toilet, people with no training, clear political leanings and agendas are running around calling themselves journalist spreading venomous hate and propaganda.

    This is what mouth of the south said about my comments.

    “i think u r mistaking a news reporter for a journalist my friend,,,,,e.g news reporter (ms green on g.i.s) journalist (lennox linton),,,,,,big difference,,,,journalists are out in the field getting the information but lennox is going a step further by digging for the info which is being hidden so lets go deeper e.g journalist (matt peltier) investigative journalist (lennox linton) see the difference.”

    They called him a journalist then, now that the maskerading is over the hypocrites now say, NO NO NO, he was never a journalist. YES I PEOPLE YES I.

    Ladies and Gentlemen:

    No need to give oneself a headache about Linton. Welcome the man to the political platform. Let us see if he possess leadership skills. Let us see if he has what it takes to manage a political affair. Do not only focus on Linton, focus on his delivery and actions. We have to learn to critique constructively as a people.

    If the man is an asset to the political field embrace him. If by his actions he is proven to be a con then you will see. Let’s be mature and not be petty. It’s good to have different perspectives at times, that’s how we grow as a people.

    Ha ha ha it is really xmas season,a season of joy and laughter.
    I guess DLP has finally got a candidate to take on Eddo in Marigot since thats the only seat that Lennox can possibly face.
    The man says he will be contesting the election but he doesn’t have a seat to run.
    A different side to it Eddie has decided to finally give up but to someone from his home village so it is a move to sideline the non marigot presons in the party.

    Welcome comrade,as DLP OR UWP OR DFP OR WATEVER.Its no longer talk its time to walk lets see how well you can walk.You will soon find out that you are of no significance to the Dominican political landscape,for this is more than CHEAP TALK,HE SAY THEY SAY.BETWEEN U AND ME!!!HMM boy!

    Lennox, welcome to the ring. You have finally come clean. The journalist in you has long disappeared. So it was no surprising that you would consider sucha move. After all you can do a much better job than Spaggs. Was that your motivation?

    As far as I am concerned, the people of Salisbury should now be concerned about the status of their leader given the “rise” of Eddy again. Will he (Spaggs) remain Opossition Leader and lead Eddy in the House? Here is another classic example of how a founding leader of Caribbean political parties are unable to let gfo and walk away into the twighlight of their days here. Eddy still feel he can become PM again. Or is he stalling for time to get Lennox in as Leader soooooooooon. That is a classic reason why he did not want Julius to be Party Leader.He could never even dream of coming back with Julie as leader. Salisbury is watching.

    December 19, 2011

    I notice that bloggers are attacking me for commenting about Lennox Linton as a journalist, as if I am the one who gave him that label.

    HOWEVER, if you look to the right of this very same article, under ‘Related Articles’ there is a story entitled: “DNO Poll: Lennox Linton the most popular Dominican journalist.”

    So if he can be a part of,be voted for and WIN a poll of popular journalists, why am I now being crucified? I’m sure that some of the people attacking me now are the same ones who voted for him in the poll! Why didn’t you all withhold your votes since you don’t consider him a journalist??!!

    For the record I have no animosity towards Lennox. I appreciate the role of people like Lennox as watchdogs over the gov’t, especially in our current situation with a weak opposition.

    My only and constant criticism of Lennox has been that he was an undeclared UWP political activist. I don’t know how anyone could honestly dispute something so glaringly obvious.

    December 19, 2011

    Thanks everybody for the keen and widespread interest in my decision to contest the next general election in Dominica as an advocate of good governance. Let us not tie ourselves down with the politics as usual that focuses on the character assassination of Lennox Linton and other patriots who will answer the call to serve with honesty and integrity. Instead, lets think service to country above self that guarantees equal advancement opportunity for all and effectively delivers the greatest good for the greatest number. To this end, the increasing abuse of public office for private gain is the single biggest obstacle in our way. And so, I make no apologies for standing against the unrelenting criminal enterprise currently masquerading as the Skerrit administration… Rest assured that no amount of criticism, and no amount of mepuis from the beneficiaries of this rogue government will deter me (journalist, politician or whatever)from being part of the movement to take Dominica out the prison of international shame, disgrace and backwardness and place it firmly on the path of democratic freedom, progress and prosperity where it rightfully belongs. HOW LONG? NOT LONG!

      @Lennox Linton just a few questions for you.you said the government is corrupt which i dont doubt but i have to ask you this. why is it that you never talk about the developments that happening in the country? no government is perfect but ur relentless attack on skerrit begs to wonder what is ur personal objective.if someone is constantly listening to ur program and nothing else and the kind of picture you paint would make ppl think this country is so badly off that you wouldnt want to visit. what have you done for the country but talk and more talk. please dont all of a sudden try to be a ppl person as you aspire to come in the ring cuz you know for sure you are not friendly and not a ppl person…. so thats my two cents

Guess what maybe it is the wanton wastage of $ 27 000 000.00 on a State Malace, or the demise of agriculture…OK! OK! Bro maybe it is the appointment of crooks and criminals to ambassadorial position in numerous capitals of the world..Sorry Sorry brother maybe you are referring to Susan Olde and Citizens for a Better Dominica INC,. What? You think you are not referring to the Beautiful Villas? Boy that is development we.. What about Apartments at Savanne Paille? Boy look development.Oh my finger you think it is not the grim report from the IMF, OR THE Extremely high UNEMPLOYMENT RATE,especially among the youths. Is it the escalating crime rate,or the mass poverty that has overran the population? Maybe it is the failure to attract tourism arrivals into the country,or the bobol in government. WOW! I am tired but that is not all.Maybe someone else will take it from there.

      Pimp, you seem to be one of those who wants the system to remain because you can line up on wednesdays at the red clinic, you seem not to want men who for years are expressing concern for good governance, you seem not to learn how to catch your own fish, you seem to be one of those lazy Dominicans who care less about wanting to work but to depend on handouts, you seem to be one of those who support that only a few who can share the national cake by prostituting our passports and making big bucks, you seem to care less about those persons who can accu ulate wealth in a short time while in public office, please tell us what do you want for Dominica, guess the hold ups of business places are the kind of thng you want rather than having men who are willing to make a sacrifice to save our beloved Dominica, Lenox is an example for others to follow

      ONE QUESTION: Did Lennox announce which party he intends to run for or if he will be running for any party for that matter? I didn’t hear him make any such relation in his statement, yet there is so much comment about UWP, Hector John, Marigot, Roseau South and more. This just displays the sheer arrogance of the detractors. If again Lennox is insignificant politically, then why waste your energies on these useless and baseless comments? You who oppose the work of the man should gladly welcome him instead of being so fearful.

    It is amazing that some of us Dominican’s saying that if Mr. Linton goes there it will bring integrity but at the same time putting down the people who trust, supports and have full confidence in Mr. Skerrit. Don’t we know that when the labour party would speak of wrong doings, it would end up with a bias for Mr. Linton side? I guess when we want what we want we don’t give a damn, even if we have to kill but once it goes our way. I have seen this back and forth politics for way too long and to me it’s just human nature. I grew up in Miss Charles time and heard so much bad talk but yet still she had her people and was elected until she retired. The human mind is so complex that not even we ourselves can understand ourselves, we say and do things and would be surprise of our own selves how we can see things differently next time around. I am just looking, all talk and no one taking note of the past they just following.

    It seems that comments on this site are getting censored more. I understand that the political climate is quite sensitive right now, but as Dominican citizens, do I not have a voice within a democratic society? Part of my voice being heard is giving an opposing viewpoint on a website, no?

What arrogance. The young writer was talking of persons at a much younger age. Lets not forget that Dominicas’ current leader is no where close to 50. He is a few years short of 40 too.

    The biggest show on earth has continued.

    ROSEAU SOUTH is said to be one of the other targetted consturncies since my AGENTS DOWN NORTH at the said private UWP meeting ssem to indictate that acertain ATHIE is eye-ing ROSEAU SOUTH. There is also talk about a TREVOR J and an TWO LAWYERS showing identical interests in that seat.

    I WISH lenoz all the best. Its of interests what will happen to SALISBURY MP. MR L has a strong personality it will be of quite a revelation to see how SPRAGS/SALISBURY deal with this very tricky situation ?

    Well is it that UWP is unravelling ? I am not optimistic about its prospects. I believe a better but not necessarily a winning move , would have been to all MR L to contest the M SEAT and take over the leadership of the party and if sucessful at the upcoming elections assume the LEADER OF THE OPPOSITION ( tHATS HIS BEST CASE SCENARIO).

    UWP wil sufer from TOO MANY CRABS IN A BARREL SYNDROME and this will lead to their further ELECTORAL DEMISE…no one wants to compromise. no one wants to listen. None has learnt from their defeats since 2000-2009.

    folks make mistakes in life..i personaly have alot of respect of Linton, but honestly he isnt a politicon in my view..

    Linton may have misjudge the poltical ring and affairs in dominica..if he gets in..surely his wings will be clipped nicely as he has to work with folks, so are sympathic to their own needs, he has his hands full..a man should know his strength, Linton doesnt seem to understand the dominican mind set…hey Linton..you not in Barbados or the US where issues and accountability is extremly high on the order.

    you dealing with a island with has being plagued with scares over years, folks only want the doe,,,majority of citizens are matured in governance, the education system doesnt appeal to school leavers holding up high standards and issues aspects as islands like Barbados,Trinidad etc…

    Dominica isnt noted for a island where discuss is key at all sectors..

    how are you going to instill that in the mind set, without having a team who undertands your goals..these are the areas you need to pay critical attention too, my advice to you is to think deeply about your move and not the surface aspect.

    look at the former leaders their gains and fallouts etc…its a major task to you sir, i think in my view your strenght is a watchdog for Dominica, not attempting to get into the ring where your clean clothes will be dirted.

    its a game of balance and deals, take a close look at world leaders for the past 40 years, bro, you a good man to be a watch tower and sound the alarm, thats your God’s Gift not to be a goal digger!

    It’s a good move possibly. The UWP needs some revitalization… Something to lift their spirits and give them a cause and direction. It’s sad that we are in a one party state. Absolute power is never a good thing. The people need a viable choice. We need a strong opposition for checks and balances. If Linton runs in Marigot… Mr James can do Roseau Central… And let Prevost go Roseau North. It will be really hard for Linton to win anywhere other than Marigot. I admire James as an apt formidable politician however it’s still sad that he has been unable to find someone to pass the legacy on to and is still clinging to power at this stage of his life and health. I’m already all excited about next elections

    Act Independently
    Journalists should be free of obligation to any interest other than the public’s right to know.

    Journalists should:

    —Avoid conflicts of interest, real or perceived.

        Irrelevant garbage about journalist. He is now in the political ring. That’s the bottom line.

        December 19, 2011

        Ummm..your definition says:

        a person who writes for newspapers or magazines or prepares news to be broadcast on radio or television.

        ——————-
        So when Lennox carries out investigations,and then broadcast such information on the radio on his talk show, doesn’t that fall under the definition you provided?? A regular news program like the morning news isn’t the only way to BROADCAST news. So just because he doesn’t write articles for DNO or Q95 news (and how can we be sure he doesn’t?), doesn’t mean that what he does, doesn’t fit under the definition you provided!!

        So I don’t get your only in Dominica comment. Seems you didn’t take the time to carefully break down the definition you posted.

        Also here is a definition of news I got with a simple Google search:

        news/n(y)o͞oz/
        Noun:
        Newly received or noteworthy information, esp. about recent or important events.

        Doesn’t Lennox Linton BROADCAST newly received or noteworthy information on his RADIO show?

        So how exactly doesn’t he fit the definition??

      I’m sure Lennox is aware of this. He would no longer be able to present his “between you &me” with any credible neutrality, for instance.He made his choise, knows the implications and, no doubt will act accordingly

        December 19, 2011

        Anti-Hate you should call yourself Ant-Understanding. A talk show is not the same as preparing and broadcasting NEWS. The broadcast of news is done in short commercialized segments of broadcasting. A talk show spans a much longer time and lets not forget Lennoxs’ show is 3 hours and non-commercial.

      • Anti-hate
        December 20, 2011

        @ Asterix you may never see this but you guys are WRONG again!! What’s up with just making up your own definitions to fit your argument??

        Here is a definition I found by googling:

        Broadcasting is the distribution of audio and video content to a dispersed audience via any audio visual medium.

        ————————–

        Doesn’t Lennox Liinton distribute audio content to a dispersed audience via an audio medium????

        SMH!!!

      Here comes the DLP sycophant and parasite once again.Anyway the crumbsfrom Skerrit’s table are getting fewer.At one point Lennox is not a journalist at another point he is a journalist.LENNOX DOES NOT BOTHER HOW YOU ALL REFER TO HIM..a ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME IS JUST AS SWEET. Thing is at this juncture, our leaders in government are so tainted, that we need people to salvage whatever is left, of Dominica’s good name…WHEREVER LINTON IS RUNNING I WANT TO BE AN ELECTOR THERE. HE WILL SURELY GET MY VOTE.

      I somewhat agree with the writter I would rather like Mr.Linton is the position he is in for now bringing us the facts about our GOVT and the other Ministers how they are running the day to day matters by exposing them it’s making us learn much more we are much more aware he makes it his duty to go out there and get the facts and he makes sure we are told what’s up so what are we going to do who will be able to pick up from where he left off once you gets into GOVT everything changes I hope Linton will reconsider we need him now is not the time to me he would be selling out and if he persue he should run as an independant.

      @Aunty-Hate: (The Hater) For years lawyers (Senior ones at that),have been taking us for a ride in this failed country, i thought you would have already quoted to us from the “Legal Code of Ethics”, but alas, your reading glasses got broken, or it dissapeared.. HYPOCRITES LIKE YOU ARE DOMINICA’S REAL ENEMIES.! Guess you envy Lennox’s reputation,but you do not have the ability or capability to taint it. Go to sleep in the way you made your bed.YOU ARE USELESS TO linton’s cause!

      You need to tell us also what you understand by ‘being ethical in government’, and don’t be so dumb,you are not just blogging for fools to read. Many of the readers are people who are smarter and more ethical than you, so if you have a brain at all use it properly.

      If you were an honest and upright person,you should have forwarded this years ago to all your accomplices in government. Maybe you would have helped save Dominica from the mess it is in presently.HOPE LENNOX TEACHES YOU WHAT PATRIOTIC ROLE MODELS DO,AND hope that you have the capacity to learn.

      A man hosting a talk show program is a talk show host, a person reading a news item on a radio is news presenter, a person playing music on the radio is radio personilty. A person presenting news on tv is called a news anchor.When Lennox is on the radio hosting his talk show program all he is being then is a TALK SHOW HOST, get it right and stop trying to fool people. We who brains know what a journalist do.

      @ Anti -hate.This piece of news by the patriot Lennox might have you running up and down the place naked my brother.But you have read it correctly. The patriot has thrown his hat into the political ring.Your reaction is already causing me to feel sorry for you, but the mental hospital is rather empty at this time, SO THERE IS SPACE FOR YOU AND YOUR ILKS. you thought evil would last forever?

      Ok I read your comment.

      But Prime Ministers and other Gov’t officials should:
      Act Independently
      Should be free of obligation to any interest other than the COUNTRY.

      —Avoid conflicts of interest, real or perceived.
      — Remain free of associations and activities that may compromise integrity or damage credibility.
      — Refuse gifts, favors, fees, villas, mansions, free travel and special treatment, and shun secondary employment, avoid dual citizenship, communist involvement, sale of diplomatic passports, and any illegal activities which compromise polical integrity.

      Yea, journalists are also not supposed to relinquish information that would recover hundreds of thousands of dollars to the treasury, among other things huh?
      Do you know that journalists compromise information constantly for a bigger course…
      It’s called moral imperative.

      From Dominica’s code of ethics:
      Anything to save Dominica and it’s interest should not be compromised!
      How is that?

    Its a shame that the political climate in Dominica has come to the point where some politicians are recycled etc. I do not think that Lennox will win only if he runs in Marigot but not any other place. Poor Hector John. I knew Lennox had an agenda a very long time ago, but he is not as popular as some may want to think. He may win in Marigot cause that is just how their supporters there think. Does he hope to become pm one day??

      Why speak of Marigot? R u aware of the political history of marigot. Educate urself by checking its political history and compare it to Grandbay, portsmouth and many other constituencies that has never voted no other party but the labour party and they vote on every thing except the issues, readiness and capability. know what u saying before u speak. Remember it is better to the thought of as a fool than to open ur mouth and clear all doubts.

      As for James he should beable to bow out let others come and put some life in the PARTY so then Lennox should stop his attack on Charles and Maynard and their age it’s time for all three of them to get out it’s time for James to pack it up people of the UWP PARTY go out in the Community and start looking good men and women who have the best interest of DOMINICA and Dominicans at the front line I will give you all a good man Magistrate Mr.Douglas when he was on the bench crime was down we need him back on the bench because their will be some of those Politicans going to jail.
