Linton is a failure – Astaphan

Astaphan said Linton has achieved nothing
Astaphan said Linton has achieved nothing

Senior counsel, Tony Astaphan, has described United Workers Party leader, Lennox Linton, as a failure who has “achieved nothing” in his first year as leader.

Linton was elected leader of the UWP in Castle Bruce on September 1, 2013.

But according to Astaphan, Linton’s year as leader “is not different from any other year in the life of Lennox Linton because he has achieved nothing.”

“I think he’s a failure as a political leader and he’s going to have a serious failure on his hands come election day because he’s achieved nothing,” Astaphan told state-owned DBS Radio.

Astaphan noted that all Linton has relied on is Q95, and before that Kairi, “to spit out a series lies and verbal attacks against every conceivable human being in this country.”

He pointed out that the UWP leader has criticized the government’s social programs describing beneficiaries as “greedy and not needy” and young people being assisted by the government as “prostituting themselves.”

“He said the words and when he was cornered by specific allegations against him, he flip flopped and said that ministers were raping people in exchange for public assistance,” Astaphan said. “And we had one story after the other. What has he achieved as political leader? I really don’t know.”

He also described Linton as having the “most firings in the private sector than any other person seeking public office”.

“He lamented the fact that he had sent so many applications for jobs to the private sector and government and no one hired him…” Astaphan said.

    I don’t even want to start to say what Lennox Linton has accomplished during his 1 yr tenure as leader of UWP Team Dominica. It is way too much accomplishments in one year for a leader. Well I am one of his accomplishments. I am now a Team Dominica Laborite. My entire household members who voted labor last election are now voting Team Dominica. You are not being true to the labor party tony.

    The DLP appears to have developed a new strategy this political season. This days, Skeritt is concentrating on breaking grounds like rain. Addressing as many inaugural meetings of village councils as possible and making more promises then lovers on valentine day. The days when Skeritt would be away from Dominica for almost ten to fifteen days in a months have disappeared. Maybe, Skeritt has a new post, that is, Minister of Home Affairs, because he is always at home. While Skeritt is involved in all those activities, the pit bulls, animals on the animal show and the Rottweiler are trying to rip apart the excellence and wizardry of Mr. Linton.

      As a born-Dominican and residing in the outside world, I endorse what you stated. We do appreciate Dominica and take an interest in it which is why we are always eager to know what is occurring there.
      We are pleased with D/ca’s progress, the likes of which D/ca did not experience in bygone years. We know and can confidently state this because we were brought up in D/ca. Know that we are a bit envious too that we do not reside there to enjoy this progress. You know, we cannot be in two places at the same time. :lol:
      Whatever good is occurring in D/ca we are happy. Whatever is not, it makes us sad.
      It saddens me and no doubt many others who also reside abroad that some D/can residents do not appreciate the progress. They cannot see the good that has been done and what Dominica is today compared to those bygone years.
      God loves, blesses and graces appreciative people. A grateful heart and disposition is a definite sign of inner and outer godliness. They are the enlightened ones who see the progress, appreciate it and always want the best for Dominica. God’s peace!

    Lennox and his Team are the most serious and competent group that Dominicans have ever gathered in many years.
    As we know since 1978, there were some people , (some dead now) who did many evil things to make sure that Dominica will not prosper. (I wish to write that in a book one day for our children to know how bad some of our Dominican people are.)
    Now that we are shedding those bad spells away , There come those people trying to keep us down thru division. But I want to tell them that Dominicans will not stand for it anymore.

    It is my humble opinion that Mr. Tony Astaphan is a successfull Person who has repeatedly insulted Members of the general public based on whether or not they support Roosevelt Skeritt,case in point He has lambassed Crazy Tee and the archives have revealed it now Mr. Bellot is held in high esteem and Tony spends hours on his radio station with his sustained insults.If that is not a flip flop I do not know what is.
    Mr Lennox Linton has put forth a strong case exposing some of the falsehoods disemenated by Mr. Astaphan.
    We the voters will decide accordingly who is a good success and a bad one!
    I am judging Mr. Astaphan based on who he chooses to defend even when not asked to.

    lo! Wrong rules the land; freedom weeps; and justice in waiting “perverted” sleeps. I have often heard it repeated that one should not pay attention to the messenger only to the message. This in my view is a phallacy. Many moons ago when I did a certificate in journalism, with trans world tutorial college, I learnt that the messenger is vital to the message since the credibility of the messenger is what validates the message. In this case my friends, I would not want to attempt to defend this article of a functional illiterate, as by doing so I would unintentionally be validating the ratings of a man who claims to be a mad liar.
    It is indeed ironic that a lawyer, who if practicing in any other country would be debarred foe defrauding a financial institution, and drawing up false real estate documents to cover it up, and the saddest thing is his attempt to blame it all on a dead colleague. This is a senior counsel, who, allegedly failed his first and second years at law school. And allegedly bought his way through the remainder. Who with his own lips told us that he buys his opinions from a UK QC, who has never won an appeal before the Privy Council, but yet he wins all in the OECS jurisdiction. This is a man who has engaged in the perversion of justice, but still remains an officer of the courts.
    My friends we have more problems than we are willing to admit, for when our justice system is based on someone like this, despite us having produced some of the finest legal minds, not only in Dominica and the region, but in the global world of jurisprudence.
    You know when one engages in chicken production, these chickens are kept in a coup and fed grower, and liner, but the common yard fowl is left to run wild scavenging, and groveling for worms. Anthony Astaphan, has reduced himself to a common yard fowl, groveling in Skerritt’s backyard to survive. The think I like about this is that he is groveling at the feet of a local black boy, the son of former slaves, who Anthony Astaphan hates with a passion surpassed only by Hitler’s hatred for the Jews.
    In essence Tony in nothing but a fraudster, a perverter of justice, a liar, and a political YARD FOWL, and he must be treated as such

    FEAR NO MORE!CHANGE IS A MUST…LENNOX WILL LEAD US TO VICTORY

    According to Dr. A, the DLP is deliberately using Tony to make these nonsensical statements as Tony appears to be a thorn in the neck of the UWP, especially the former PM Mr.Edison James. Rubbish!

    We all know the tremendous work that Mr. Lennox Linton has done to take the UWP/Team Dominica from there to here today. The opposition to the DLP has never been so strong.

    The statement of Tony and the DLP is evidence of the FEAR that they are iexperiencing as they stare defeat this time around within only one year of the strong leadership of the Lennox.
    Senior counsel, Tony Astaphan, is wrong on all counts and blowing hot steam, as unusual.

    Lennox Linton has shown us in more ways than one that the word failure cannot be associated with his stewardship of the the UWP/Team Dominica. Definitely, Lennox has “achieved a lot ” in his first year as leader. Tony’s statements are cheap, low and unsubstantiated.

    Unlike Mr. Astaphan, we think Lennox’s success as political leader of the UWP has had a serious impact on the political landscape in Dominica but Tony need not be worried. The real success of Mr. Linton will be revealed on Elections Day. Tony should simply advise Dmitri to “call it nah!” so that we can witness the manifestation of Lennox’s success.

    Astaphan continues to use the media, in particular DBS and KariFM to spit out a series lies and verbally attack,denigrate and insult Dominicans in every conceivable way without being made to account. He continues to spin and twist the well intent statements of Lennox to give it a negative meaning such as the statement that government assistance are being given to the “greedy and not needy” and that government ministers are prostituting our young young people.

    As usual, every time that Tony and the DLP are cornered by numerous specific and substantive allegations of corruption, they go on the offense and attack or flip flop. For example, instead of investigating an allegation of serious sexual wrong-doing by government ministers, Tony and 18 members of the DLP are suing Lennox for saying that no government/ any government should harbour rapist ministers.

    The rest of Tony’s statement is nothing more than hogwash.

Anyhow, you and your ilk can run but you cannot hide. We will investigate all of you, we will seek indictments against all of you where corruption and malfeasance are discovered, we will have warrants issued for your arrest and if you so happen to be out of the country hiding, we will pass those arrest warrants over to Interpol and wherever you are, a corresponding police agency will pick you up on those outstanding warrants and send you back to us for prosecution.

    Now…did Tony really want to talk about success and failure? Because success is measured by accomplishments and achievements against targets. If Linton is considered a failure, it would suggest that he has failed to accomplished what he set out to do or what people expected him to have done. The records shows Linton has done a lot as political leader in putting together a great team to challenge the DLP for government. Linton has highlighted his accomplishments so there is no need to repeat them. Could he have accomplished more? I’m sure. Is the UWP a stronger party with a better chance of winning the election than they were 1 year ago? We will all say yes. Therefore Linton cannot be considered a failure.

    My question. Can the PM share his report card for the past 5 years with the nation. Let’s try to keep this fair and objective.

    Is the economy of Dominica better off today than five years ago?
    Is the level of unemployment lower than it was five years ago?
    Is the quality of health care in Dominica better than it was five years ago?
    Are businesses in Dominica doing better than they were five years ago?

    @Just blaze said “UWP has no chance of winning the next elections,” I hate to admit it, but if people cannot make objective and intelligent decision, you may just be proven correct.

    Linton and UWP has done a great job in educating the nation, but there is still a lot of work to be done. I think they have not played the “political game” well. According to the DLP they are too much focused on the truth, and it’s unfortunate, its very difficult to play fair and win. My greatest fair is that this clean approach may cause them the election, but great job Linton and Team Dominica.

You mean to tell me the likes of Tony, Hartley, Lawrence, Skerrit, Charlo and others were not able to handle Mr. Linton that they had to hire Charles jong to try to figure him out? I mean consultant Jung was hired 3 months after Mr. Linton was made leader of UWP with a one year contract ending October 31, 2014, by which time you all thought Skerrit would have called election?

    September 3, 2014

    The western world treats poverty as a crime and that’s where Dominicans have been since the end of slavery. You’ve been so deprived that you think a free ride, some books and a few dollars make this govt your savior. Not at all, you vote lets them travel around the world, live a lifestyle you never will and secure their futures financially. You are too ignorant to question their deeds or decisions even when the are to your detriment. Please wake up and don’t let greedy fools rob you blind.

    The Chinese are bringing development to a people who have no representation in the workforce so no wages for the local economy. No nationals (qualified or trainees) involved in these development projects so no future self development on the horizon. This situation is not the same on other islands so the current Dominica govt has brought a poor deal to the nation in this respect.

    All emancipation ever meant was that we stopped being in physical bondage in exchange for financial debt. When slavery stopped the land didn’t suddenly become ours either. There is a reason why the majority of the population live on the edges of the island to this day and it shows how little has changed. When the Chinese want some payback for the work the Dominica taxpayer (how many are there anyway?) might just have a heart attack or have to go and live in the sea.

    I could go on but I won’t it…..too embarrassing and depressing. However, do realize for yourselves that the recipients of the biggest favour in Dominica are Skerritt & Astaphan (not even elected) with your votes.

    Tony boy, you need to see the doctor because you don’t sound like a person that is taking your medication at all! Are you really question Mr. Linton’s accomplishments as leader of the DLP or you just trying to sing for your supper? Let me help you see some of the outstanding accomplishments of Mr. Linton as leader:
    1. He succeeded in get me and other key supporters of the DLP and DFP, who sat at meetings with you, to jump on the winning UWP team.
    2. With all respect to Mr. James and Mr. Green, I can bet my house that if any of them had remained leader of the UWP, you and Skerrit would have called election long time. Is only because you and Skerrit are sooooo scared of Mr. Linton an election date cannot be finalized even when Skerrit wanted to announce the date in St. Joe. Lennox have all you so scared that you all don’t even seem to know what month we in.
    3. At no time was UWP ever able to campaign freely in Grandbay. Under Linton not only can they campaign there but nothing is impossible.
    4. The fact that you took time to comment on his ist anniversary tells a lot about your fears, panic, concerns and worries.
    5.The fact that NO DLP candidate is sure of contesting next election is proof that Mr. Linton has you, Skerrit, and DLP cornered.

      It is very sad reading your list of accomplishments attributed to Linton. Do honestly think these accomplishments can convince an intelligent person that Linton leadership of UWP has prepared him to be the next PM. These are such mediocre so called accomplishments, most are not even accomplishments but opinions and perceptions of your yours. I do not think that Linton should be judged by his accomplishments rather he should be measured by how many times he screwed up trying to achieve his accomplishments.

    Tony, if nothing else Lennox Linton has galvanized this Govt. of Roosevelt Skerrit into what they should have been doing all along. He has made them react at every possible turn like Johny- come-lately. He has given people new hope and despite the fact that he is not a member of the House he has tuned his party into a credible opposition. In short he and his team are doing exactly what an opposition is supposed to do.The very fact that you lambast him and are trying to denegrate him at every opportunity only confirms this.

If he was refuse by the public and private sector it was meant to happen that way so he can be shaped and mold to be our leader. We are thankful for that God allowed it that way cause he had bigger plans for Linton.
    In the mean time Tony, the Devil have more plans for you so keep pulling his chain. Truth always WIN, lies only tangle you in more lies. Tony, you are DA QC biggest failure!! The devil is awaiting your next lie so he can trap you again….

      I must respond to your using the Words of Our Lord Jesus Christ as contained in the Holy Bible, in this mess. This is blasphemy to our God. What do you know about the Bible? You are so wrong! This passage of the Bible did not refer to any human person on this earth and by no means Linton. It shows how much you know about what is contained in it and the meaning thereof.
      Our Lord Jesus Christ spoke about himself, being rejected and He being the Cornerstone. It was by no means about one sinful person on this earth of which you are very much so.
      You lack Holy Scripture knowledge and correct interpretation of the Words of Our Lord Jesus Christ. You can easily deceive those who are not well-versed in Holy Scripture as you and are not grounded in the faith. Throughout the years to today, this has frequently occurred. This type of misinterpretation and teaching have caused some others to lose their faith, be influenced by false teachings and renounced it and follow such teachers as some continue to keep searching for a church.
      The next time you decide to quote Holy Scripture, pray to God for enlightenment. Then ensure that you use the teachings correctly and attribute them to the real meaning of who they were meant for.
      For further information, in case you do not know this, Our Lord did not teach about earthly matters. He taught about spiritual matters on godliness and hope of eternal salvation.

Tony i’ll tell you one of the many achievements of Lennox Linton (exposing you and skeritte as the two most notorious lairs this country has ever known when you both went on radio and tried to insinuate that it was Lennox and the IPO who were guilty of putting out skeritt’s declaration in the public domain). The investigations proved other wise. Why does the bunch of cowards and hypocrites who call themselves the leadership of the DLP not step forward and and make a meaningful contribution to the nation debate for which they are paid with Tax Payers monies?; Alas Tony and like Whisky would have said “What do you expect from a bag of Coals but Dust”.

    This diatribe from the most loathed impostor in the the recent history of this country only confirms why he should be regarded as public enemy number one.
    He seems to enjoy his role as the spoiler in the politics of this country, someone who devises strategies aimed at personal destruction and in a sadistic way, he revels in the sick sense of satisfaction he gains from from the games he plays with the prime minister. Most of all, this senior counsel enjoys nothing more than to be portrayed as the prime minister’s puppet master, and he is. The prime minister knows that his life depends on this relationship of existential dependency on this senior counsel. Without him, most astute observes believe, the prime minster would be history, so he exploits this dependency to maximum advantage, in essence the senior counsel leverages this dependency to promote his own power. He claims to speak for the prime minister. And why not, since he is the senior partner in this unholy alliance.
    And for this senior counsel who is not an elected official to behave as if he has a popular mandate to throw his weight around, behaving as if he has political legitimacy, is offensive to the maximum degree.
    The country dealt effectively with a similarly obnoxious character in the person of Leo Austin in 1979, so I am somewhat hopeful that someday African Dominicans will see the light and will act to restore the balance of power where it ought to be.
    Right now, the senior counsel has unfettered access to the levers of power, and he wields this power with a degree of arrogance unknown in the annals of politics of this commonwealth.
    I hope he enjoys it for as long as it lasts. WE all know that nothing lasts forever.

    • The Facts
      September 3, 2014

      Aside from your views which I disagree with, Dominicans are not African-Dominicans. They are not only African descendents. They are also Dominicans of British and French heritage. Some were also from Spain. You know, these ancestors of that era were white people. Therefore, the next time you consider saying “African”, remember Dominicans are not full-fledged Africans. Some of you would like to know that you are Africans. For what, I do not know.
      Keep in your mind that Dominicans are not Africans and by no means in the true sense of the word including culture. African is part of our heritage just as the British and French. Do not try to ignore this for it is history which cannot be erased. Therefore, give us and all our ancestors our dues. Face the facts and learn.

You could start a campaign in D/ca and especially among the youths, informing them to remain in school and be diligent in their studies that when they graduate, they might obtain a good paying, stable job.

        With all that stayed in school and just graduated with good grades. Where can they find jobs in Dominica. Times a freaking hard in Dominica. A land that has fertile soil and water and basic foods are some expensive, don’t you think this is hard? Even when you have a job and you pay your rent or mortgage you can’t feed you children nor buy basic needs, don’t you call that hard time? Tebeh!

    A real failure, when you tell me this guy runs with a news that makes people see he has no idea of the inner working of Gov. contractual bidding process says a lot. I have referred people to a program this guy did with Gordon Henderson in France and in a friendly setting this guy could not keep his head up to speak he was reading word for word to make his point as to his beliefs to me if you quoting numbers I would say ok but to make your point on a whole no man. Look at all the mistakes he made in public with his choice of words and direction that’s why when his other members around him make those same mistakes he could not caution them, but it’s not his fault he has feet in mouth syndrome. Could you imagine the butt of jokes we would when the other Caribbean leaders meet for a meeting and this guy comes up to make his representation Lord it would be hand over face for us till he done.

    Tony are you Mad? Blind? Stupid? or just blatantly wicked and disrespectful?
    The political landscape in Dominica has changed since September 2013, to the extent that a sitting government is less prepared for elections than the opposition.
    First time in the history of Dominica, since independence, an opposition party has more candidates in place than the government that has been in office for 15 years.
    Who listens to Tony? Mark you I did not read the article, the headline was sufficient for me to know the crap that he was bubbling out.

    ASTAPHAN the failure is the DLP government which have achieved very little for the country whilst at the same time chocking up billion dollar debt on the people of the country, mismanaging the country resources and tiefing from the treasury. They and You have placed the people into increase poverty where people cannot provide for their families whilst at the same time taking bribes and kickbacks for contracts.

    As you say the poles will show just how dominicans feel about your waste of time party that is achieving nothing for the country but enriching themselves personally

        Tony has proved to be an intelligent guy. Knowing him in D/ca, it never crossed my mind that today he would be an Attorney, not that I did not have confidence in him that he would attain this height. He has done very well for himself. It goes to show that those who apply themselves to their studies will, in the long run, make it to the top. Dominican youths of all should emulate him.
        Tony is better off educationally and financially and in terms of experience, than all those who dislike/hate him and lambaste him. None of their undermining him can affect him. Therefore, they are wasting their time.
        Tony, keep up the good work and telling it like it is. You are an independent person and in an excellent position to do so. Thank you for your vision and wise words.
