PM, Linton trade words over opposition concerns

PM Skerrit and Opposition Leader Linton met recently
PM Skerrit and Opposition Leader Linton met recently

Opposition Leader, Lennox Linton, has outlined three issues which he said are of concern to the Parliamentary Opposition which Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, has described as a ‘total surprise.’

At a press conference which was held at the Prevost Cinemal on Friday 11th September 2015, Linton, pointed to three matters of concern with the Parliamentary Advisory Group, which if addressed, he said, would make the advisory body more effective. The group, which consists of all 21 elected members of Parliament, was formed after the passage of Tropical Storm Grace.

The issues include the need for the group to be brought under the authority of parliament and immediate parliamentary approval should be sought for the formation of a standing committee of the whole house on national reconstruction with clear terms of reference.

The second matter has to do with the public’s perception of the sincerity of the collaboration between the two sides of parliament being negatively affected by the failure to entertain advice of the opposition on critical matters of relief, recovery and reconstruction. Linton pointed to the appointment of Baroness Patricia Scotland as the International Relief Coordinator as well as the formation of a National Reconstruction Task Force without the advice of the opposition.

“Government cannot claim to be serving the public interest with elected members of parliament advising on national reconstruction and then act unilaterally in critical decision-making,” he argued.

The third has to do with lack of access by the opposition to broadcast media, particularly radio,  with the exception of Q95 FM radio.

“It is unfair, we believe, and unjust that the Prime Minster is able to broadcast all of his national reconstruction messages live on all radio stations at the same time, whatever the time may be, while the Parliamentary Opposition cannot even pay DBS Radio, the people’s station, for live coverage of a press conference of national reconstruction,” Linton stated.

But Skerrit has responded saying Linton, in his official capacity of Leader of the Opposition, wrote to him in his official capacity as Prime Minister and should have given him the opportunity to first receive and respond to his correspondence.

According to Skerrit, at 12.20 pm he was in the process of drafting a response to a letter from Linton “in which he made the identical points.”

“News of the focus and content of Mr. Linton’s press conference came to me as a major surprise,” he said. “Had Mr. Linton ascribed to me that basic courtesy, he would have discovered, that I am in very much agreement with the spirit of much of what he is suggesting and would like for us to meet at the earliest opportunity so we can elaborate with a view of us agreeing on a formula for implementation.”

He said he has made it clear that the crisis confronting Dominica at this time demands a cessation of the culture of adversarial politics and the adoption of a more conciliatory and collaborative approach.

“In this regard, I will request an audience with Mr. Linton early next week to discuss and itemize the list of his concerns. Now is not the time and this is certainly not the environment, in which the leadership of the country should be seen to be shouting across the airwaves at this time,” he noted.

He said he is open to discussion and he proposed to sit with the leader of the Opposition no later than Wednesday next week to discuss issues of concern.

He insisted that these are not issues that warrant a “public shouting match.”

“Therefore I am confident that as leaders with the best interest of Dominica at heart, we can sit across the table and arrive at an acceptable formula going forward,” Skerrit noted.

DNO contacted Linton on the Prime Minister’s reaction and he said “bringing to public the concerns of the parliamentary Opposition about the integrity and effective functioning of the Parliamentary Advisory group on National Reconstruction is not a shouting match.”

“It is honest disclosure for transparency and accountability in the unity of purpose initiative embraced by both sides of parliament to ensure the success of national reconstruction endeavors,” he noted.

He said he looks forward to the meeting with the Prime Minister next week to discuss and “hopefully resolve the matters of concern in the interest of the people we are sworn to serve ‘without fear or favor, affection or ill-will’.”

    Skerrit is the leader of the country let him do his job. You have hurricanes, earthquakes, bombings etc all over the world. How many times you see or hear the opposition tell the leader of that country what to do or what he would like to see.?In some countries you don’t have a clue who is the opposition leaders when a disaster strikes. Linton stop acting like a boy you are not that important. Instead of fighting the PM go out seek aid if you are so concern about your people. The rest of the world is watching this is not the time for politics election is over move on.

    you don’t wait on the hammer to fall on your heads,the village council should be out and about in the villages that are unaffected and do some research and don’t wait for your turn prevent it otherwise the country will be going backwards and forwards. Give the locals some work, stop bashing one person when there are lots to done. Make door to door collection instead of sitting there and feel sorry. Do something now

    As the Opposition Party, what has the UWP done collectively to assist the country? What has the Opposition contributed to the recovery after Erika? While Dominicans in the diaspora busting their butt to help and other countries trying their best and giving their utmost, Lennox, the Opposition Leader playing politics. Lennox you and your disciples were asking for work in the country; now there is nuff work to be done in the country get you ALL butt on the ground and start working to rebuild the country. Action speaks louder than words. Going on Q95 and spewing garbage wont solve anything.

    Mr. Linton and his party represent more than 40% of the resident voters in Dominica and Roosevelt Skerrit is not God or even the Messiah. These are incontrovertible facts. Ignore them at your peril.

    A hundred plus comments on this article meanwhile the articles about donations from various countries and organizations can barely even get ten comments just to say thanks or we appreciate the help and keep it moving. Where are your priorities? Ya’ll going back and forth and Lennox happy and Skerrit maybe not happy giving the predicament we’re in now but he ok. Are you guys ok? Do you have water? Are you children going to school with recess and all their books? Smhhh Dominicans wouldn’t wake up and realize till the country “under water”

      So True “BabyNeedFormula” – Its controversity so its great news for Dominicans. The truth is The PM does not trust Lennos and Lennox does not trust the PM. Its a false unity; I dont know what will truly make us unite in this country. People are all doing things for points – everything that is done has to be posting on facebook or make some news. Let us be genuine and see the true meaning of unity and act accordingly. We need Unity now more than every.

      He is using this predicament to secure his reign forever that is why he is not calling a state of emergency.Wicked man

    Dominicans are a bunch of hypocrites..the pm talks unity but his action still shows how petty he is…we need to work together to build Dominica back he says but assembles a national reconstruction group with only labourites..Dominica cud have been so much further if for one our politicians can work together.. The pm needs to understand in times like these it cannot be a one man show.. No wonder lots of ppl want to give monetary contribution but trust issues with the lack of transparency have them thinking twice…I made my share of donations but I chose to go directly to the ppl..

  12. September 14, 2015

    Skeritt is the PM not Lennox. I do not want to hear Lennox on radio talking about reconstruction and relief aid as he is not in a possition to offer any solution he can only talk he cannot offer to implement anything. If the oppossition has a reconstruction plan they can present lt to Government and then publish it so we can all know what their plan is. Right now what Team Dominica is doing is trying to upstage the DLP govt. Frankly the UWP is not concerned about the situation in Dominica they are only interested in what their party can gain from this tragic situation.

    • John Paul
      September 14, 2015

      So why You think Skeritt asked the Opposition to come onboard? To make them look good or Him?

    The Prime Minister is doing exactly the right thing. In this time of trouble there is only 1 Prime Minister and only 1 voice should be heard. This is not a political debate or forum for party politics. If you think you’re a leader get over your obsession with Skeritt and star helping Dominicans not as the so called leader of the opposition but as a Dominican.

    It is alright for Skerit to put committee together without the knowledge of Mr. Linton and his colleagues but it is damning for Linton to share his concerns. You all to damn hypocrite. The United Workers Party is an independent party which represents thousands of Dominicans and this they need to continue doing. They sure don’t have to sit and swallow everything.

      September 14, 2015

      Which committee are you talking about. Believe it or not the PM is doing what is right. If you have an issue you address it first with whom you have the problem or issue. This woman was given her portfolio a long time ago. To hurriedly send a letter and then run to the public before a response is a dishonest and desperate political move. I am pleased with the mature response from the PM.

    I had a dream last month like a riot in DA and I started saying loudly stop this stop this Jesus is crying don’t let him shed his tears on you all in Dominica and see what happened. I think that they were planing to do something bad and Erika intervine so please people work to gether for the sake of the country. Linton the years are going fast take it easy if God want you to be PM it will be the way you are going is wrong.

    • Well all where UWP said they were going to block. God block it for them and more. Not even they could have imagined how well their thought of protests would actually work.

      Only one major problem they didn’t count on, is that, they believed they could have had control over people’s life; they forgot that only God is in control and God does not sleep and so the rivers didn’t block only those who support the government, the would be protestors got caught in it too.

      So let them continue and forget God is watching you, God is watching you.

    so it fits in nicely with the headline of this story PM,LINTON trade words over opposition concerns.
    We all wondered how long that would take before it began amidst talks of unity in light of hurricane ERIKA.
    All the hypocrtites were at their best..It’s on 2 weeks since ERIKA.
    How long b4 reginal & international countires and agencies forget DA? HOwlong? Not long.

    Mr.Linton will learn when you Dominican stop thinking Skerrit is a god. What ever he does or says he is right. He is a human being with faults and sins like all of us. When you all are able to call a spade a spade Linton will learn. You all would have catch Dominica on fire already if Edison James had done one of the things your Prime Minister has done to D.A. Remember God does not like Injustices.

    Lmao. It had to take an act of God for skerrit to finally realize consultation with the opposition leader is in the best interest of the country. Soooooooo for 15 years he is admitting he was not acting in the best interest of Dominica. I do not trust skerrit cause he has a history that cannot be denied. His only plan is to consolidate power around him and to give the appearance that he is considerate. This will soon pass and skerrit will only try to cement his position as prime minister for life.

    A picture tells athousand words. It is so sad that u can see there is a division between this two people. A chair is dividing them. Both of them should be sitting next to each other. Satan is rejoicing because he has planted a seed of hatred. If one could read the mind they would undestand where am coming from. Satan never wants happiness for us. He always wants us to fight each other and pull each other down. I believe that TS Erika was a wake call for everyone in DA to unite and live at peace with each other. Dominicans please rise from the mud and debris and rallie together. Forget about politics. Its a dirty tricks and help your country. The thing that will keep the country down is self. Everytime its in the way Dominica will never RISE!!! Watch it take self out and Dominica will SHINE!!! Thats what happen to satan. He is doing the same thing today. Dominicans work with each other not against. It is your country. You can do it!!!!!!?

    In any crises, re. passage of a storm and impacts, economic downturn, rising unemployment, women/child abuse, increase in crime, violence, injustices, There will always be concerns expressed.There will always be and rightly so, alternative approaches to dealing with issues.

    Remember, consultations, seeking different views, accepting those feasible, good ideas for development, have never been the practice in recent times. Calls for transparency and accountability regarding important National issues, have been disregarded. The people are in the dark on many, many things affecting their lives, as far as governance is concerned.

    Some think our two pieces of equipment could clean up DA after that devastation by Erika? Hurricane season still, oui?

    Unilateral decisions still being taken, although members of Parliament, on both sides, are in some kind of committee to combine efforts for recovery.

    A different approach is necessary. All-inclusive. Let all ideas contend.

He has involved you in the whole process, and rightly so, however, instead of helping you are trying to play politics. It is a shame. I am a Dominica living overseas who has never voted for Skerrit. We are all watching what is going on with our country as well as the reactions of our leaders. What I am hearing and seeing from you in a time when all should be coming together is discouraging. Now is about country not about self. You will have plenty time after the rebuilding process to get back to politics. Now is not the time to play politics – you are turning many people off.

    Linton’s complaint is a storm in a teapot; making a mountain out of a molehill.
    Cooperation is necessary but the PM cannot lean to him and on him.
    The PM is the leader of Dominica. He reserves the right to be the primary source of reporting the progress/situation, to nationals of what is occurring in Dominica.
    Linton must recognize that he is the leader of the opposition Mr. Skerritt is the PM.
    Linton cannot take precedence over the PM.

    Those Skerrit poopoo flies are all over the place giving thumbs down to anti Skerrit comments . But in case you all forget, let me remind you of some of the badly destroyed projects by Erica.

    First, The Douglas/ Charles airport.
    This is significant because that was the port of entry used by you wicked DIASPORA, when you came here to commit your crime. You remember what was the first thing God attacked when those wicked Egytians pursued Israel? Here is Exodus 14:24-:25 And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the LORD looked unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians 25 And took off their chariot wheels, that they drave them heavily:

    Secondly, another heavily destroyed project was the “EO Leblace Highway”. This too is significant because that’s what all you would use to show ‘Skerrit working’.

    Thirdly, the West Bridge, next 2 the market

    why when people have an honest opinion on something people always feel like you are being a rouge or you not loyal , or not satisfied etc. It look like in Dominica people prefer lies, begging and worshiping a party and a man rather than dealing with the issues head on . I applaud Lennox for not bowing down to any pressure and stand his ground. If you people are satisfied with a yard and don’t want a mile that’s all you , but I was also taught not to limit oneself , So to all those people who are like ” oh they give him a yard now he wants a mile ” if a mile is what will solve the problem or if a mile is what he wants who are we to tell him he should not go after that mile ? Are we so stupid and lazy that we have come to accept what we get ? I for one do not believe Skerrit was every going to reply Lennox and give him a fair chance on the radio station DBS nor would he agree to anything on Lennox terms , I know Skerrit think that most Dominicans are fooled by him so he keep…

    Mr. Linton, your most ardent critics Including just to name a few: Cyrique, Be wise, Sandra Alfred, seems not to be too versed on the role of the opposition in parliamentary forms of governments: The voice of the people, raising the issues on the people’s behalf. Consequently, they need not be given the time of night far less daytime. The others critics are not in deserving of a mention.

    Having said that, I believe you should be a little more careful with your approach during this period in the country. If every time you make a move and the and PM pushes back, making it appear that you seem not to be on the side of effective reconstruction, you need to be more astute about your moves. In this case the PM is absolutely correct that you should have met with him first. Had he rebuffed you, clearly it would have been reasonable for you to take it to the public. Sit back, pause, make a decision then have the decision proofread. Review the recommendations, proofread again then execute.

    Linton you are in the opposition!!! It is not only in this situation, but longtime I see you want to be consulted on every decision the PM makes, and want have a say in everything. You want the PM to ask your permission to do everything! We did not vote you! Know your role. When Parliament is called, go and do your job. Other than that chill the F out!!

    Mr Linton one love is asking you to learn, that means that one love is pointing the fingers at you and blaming you, the same way that they are blaming Mr Charles and his band for what Khimo Astaphan did. SOME Dominican bo not like to say that a right is a right, and a wrong is a wrong, once they dislikes you whatever good or right that you do and say, the opposition does it is always wrong and bab. MR LINTON skerrit offered an OLIVE BRUNCH after the election which was not coming from his heart and he did not meant it, what make you believe that skerrit calling for UNITY in the aftermath of ERICKA is coming from within. Skerrit knows when to play his gains and this is exactly what he is doing, playing games with you and the rest of your team, Skerrit is setting up Team Dominica, everything this man utter is lies and more lies, he is not trustworthy, not reliable, not honest, not a team player, why one earth are you trusting skerrit, we all know what he did and go behind Pierre Charle

Mr Linton that day you walked in DBS, skerrit and his boys had know choice they only allow poeple to hear you on DBS because they know that people all over the globe was listening to what Ericka did to Dominica, and not allowing you on DBS the news would have spread all over, so to avoid you going to the only station q95 fm, where the opposition and none supporters can voice their opinions, exposed skerrit’s wrong doings, the discrimination, victimization and the rest they did not want to ran you out, skerrit is putting up a show that unity thing is a…

    According to Skeritt, at 12.20 pm , I assumed it was 10th September, he was in the process of drafting a letter to Linton, “in which he made the identical points.” The Baroness was appointed on 30th August, why wasn’t he informed at least by telephone a couple days after her appointment and letter to follow later. Skeritt allowed approximately two weeks to pass by and because Hon Linton has exposed his one man show attitude, he is telling the press, he was in the process of drafting a letter. The National Reconstruction Task Force made the news over a week ago, again he never informed Hon Linton, had these issues not brought to the public, in his usual arrogant and lack of transparent manner, no letter would have been drafted. By the way, remember the famous $10,000 U.S received by Francine from a charitable organization, the people of Petite Savanne would love some of the cash.

  61. September 12, 2015

    It is ironical that the same people who are constantly calling for non political partisan in the reconstruction process are the same people who are constantly criticizing the Leader of the Opposition whenever he attempts to point out the ills associated with the actions of the PM as against the words of the PM. I am left to conclude that while many of us speak English the basic understanding of our mother language leaves a lot to be desired. How can we build a prospering nation when we do not even understand what we Read or Say.

    Those Skerrit poopoo flies are all over the place giving thumbs down to anti Skerrit comments . But in case you all forget, let me remind you of some of the badly destroyed projects by Erica.

    First, The Douglas/ Charles airport.
    This is significant because that was the port of entry used by you wicked DIASPORA, when you came here to commit your crime. You remember what was the first thing God attacked when those wicked Egytians pursued Israel? Here is Exodus 14:24-:25 And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the LORD looked unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians 25 And took off their chariot wheels, that they drave them heavily:

    Secondly, another heavily destroyed project was the “EO Leblace Highway of Skerrit” aka “the China highway”. This too is significant because that’s what all you would use to show ‘Skerrit working’.

    Thirdly, the China Skerrit West Bridge, with image of dragon…

    Right now Mr. Linton, we are wondering why are you using this as a politicking opportunity? But we saw this coming in some of the smart answers you gave in the last press conference you had together with the Prime Minister, and your interview with Curtis Matthew some days ago.

    For the first time there is togetherness and things have worked well so far. If you have a concern why not share it with that same committee first before going to the public? Then if you do not get their cooperation at that point then go out to the public.

      truth the

      I hate getting into controversies, but we need to separate issues. This is not an election campaign it is a disaster. There is only one Prime Minister whether we like him or not. The Opposition Leader is not a parallel Prime Minister in the present circumstances so the Prime Minister cannot be giving the nation one message and the opposition is given equal time to give another message. The nation cannot be receiving mixed messages. The person with the authority to give a final word on the crisis for the guidance of the nation is the Prime Minister. The buck stops with him for all the negatives, it must also stop with him for the positives.

      When I saw the collaboration between the opposition and government I kept pinching myself to make sure I was awake and that it would last but from some of the comments of some supporters I realised it would not.

      An example of the potential for confusion was when I listened to a report from the opposition leader on the

      • Barbara Saunders
        September 12, 2015

        …progress on the airport clean-up and acknowledgment of effort, if I was not listening to the official reports I would have thought that the only people who contributed to that effort were Stewco Construction and some other organisation that I don’t remember now.

        No mention of Mr. Bardouille, the driving force behind the co-ordination, or of the Venezuelans or of the little ordinary Marigotians, Wesleyans, Woodfordhillians, (I am making my own words), Kalinagos and others with their pickaxes and shovels and bare hands in the initial stages of the clean-up. Were it not for Mr. Bardouille and the PM who repeated the right acknowledgements, some of the regional and international people like the Grenadian electrical Engineer who has airport lighting experience and others may well have been offended.

        Let us all please get it. The Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition are not and cannot be equal in terms of national recognition and decision-making privileges. Okay?

      I have to take issue with this one. I do not know where your facts came from, but her mother came to retire where, from what. Those people lived in St Joseph quite a few years before migrating to England. The father worked, but their mother never. The children were born here and left at an early age. When they ‘the parents’ returned – they build and relocated to Clarkhall. Their children stayed overseas. I am happy and honored at the Baroness success and proud she is Dominican, but in Mr Linton’s capacity I think h
      e is well within his right. Whoever mentioned Obama and Christie also chose a good example. That’s American Democracy, at election time people are trying to win they have no time to be enemies.

    Mr. Linton in case you didn’t know the advisory group was formed as a result and consequence of the passage of TS Erika. It is therefore not a permanent requirement of the state and therefore should not be controlled or regulated by the parliament. Second the prime minister remains the prime minister and therefore he can, as the leader of the country, take decisions which fulfils that mandate with or without consultation with you. Again having the advisory group does not dictate that the country now has two leaders. It seems things have gone to head and you now believe you have as much authority as the prime minister.
    And lastly this access issue is just childish. Roosevelt Skerrit is the head of the country, he should, dare I say must, have access to every available medium at any time to reach the nation.
    Again Mr. Linton, you seem to have forgotten the order of things. It is not about you sir. You are not the head, play ur role…

      The Lord have a way of making us drink our vomit. Remember I said this here, Linton is nothing today remember the stone that is rejected becomes the corner stone. We should be respectful to everyone. Politics is volatile – here today gone tomorrow go ask the Trini Lady.

      TotheBone I agree with all your points perfectly and support you 100% and I must say as a Dominican who has been following these proceedings, I am very impressed with the Prime Minister for the Job he has been doing and I do not care one bit if no one agrees with me Mr. Skerrit is a People Prime Prime Minister and that is why he is loved so much and for those people who is waiting for him to be out of Government they better sit down and enjoy the ride because this man who was put there by God and the People will be there for a long time to come….trust me.

      WOW! It appears that you went to school. Does that mean the PM knows you by name? Does he even care to? It’s people like you who continue to divide the country. Stop it! Stop playing politics in rebuilding the nation. That’s exactly what the country does not want and need. What it needs is people coming together for the good of its’ people and rebuild it. Do you have any idea how much the country is going to need to rebuild it? While you were typing your trash, Dominica was flooded again. So there! Leave your attitude in your pants and come up with some great ideas to help rebuild this beautiful country of ours. Let those people who are playing politic with the supplies to distribute to stop it. Also stop selling them :oops:

    I think God is speaking to us for us to unite and build our country but we are still not listening. Erika and now Grace – the outpouring of support extended to us. We need that unity in our people also starting from the Head..

      Skerro said inhis own words their were dogs in the system indirectly when concern emanated earlier last eek. I said these two will never forget or digress from their individual natures .Both are head strong ignorant( in the D/can Palance way) One thinks he has more brain and much better educated. Which is true. The other think he has a degree in Psychology and U can only imagine.
      One has word power the other wish he could just have it.
      Unity my big Toe. Like I always say we are totally screwed. Deja -Vu all over again! ? 79 all over again which saw mass migration of the best.If I die ants will bring me news.
      Nothing has changed people look at the composition of the Parliamentary Advisory Group.
      LL has an ex-boss in the group which is very ironical Sandra Alfred.
      Don’t call me mauve lang just a realist that’s all that is all.

    Thank you Lennox for keeping us informed and good luck with next weeks meeting. Open discussion is healthy and hopefully productive.

      Did you take the time to read your post. Thank you Mr. Linton for keeping us informed????? What were you informed of????

      I agree with the PM on this one. A correspondence and request for a discussion from Mr. Linton should have preceded this radio statement. The points from Mr. Linton though are wholly valid.

      The game of politics is a complex dance and the UWP has a lot more moves to learn. I recognise that a lot of emotion is invested but in this game with players this good more strategy is needed.

      DNO you need to review the meaning of ‘trading words’.

    The access you Linton and the other team Dominica needs on Dbs right now is to call in like all the other ministers are doing and give an update of what is going on in your constituency and other constituency you know about, but no instead you all are on Q95 talking even in this difficult time, I agree with dbs not too let you guys use the best station to share and preach politics , no way

      Well said
      So far i have not geard one update about the north east. Nothing from the salisbury parl rep etc. But there is linton wanting exposure from the media. I believe he should be kept out from these meetings as he has nothing constructive to bring. His constant bickering at all turns is beginning to eear out

    • September 12, 2015

      Are you daff you know fully well that the opposition leader and the members of Team Dominica have been asking for access on DBS and have been denied, Q95 is the only radio station in Dominica allowing members of the opposition to it’s station, them being denied access on the nation station where else do you want them to go, skerrit control DBS so his ministers go to the station without putting in any request and free of charge, what choice do the Leader of the Opposition and the members of Team Dominica have other than Q95, at Q95 there is no discrimination of people walking in to talk about their issues and things affecting them, so to you labor supporters blaming him for using Q95, you people need to say it as it is and also keep it real, to One Love, when will skerrit learn, why is he truning down Dominican, none supporters of his corruption and all his lies who are willing to assist in the rebuilding of Dominica?, why did he send Dr Dale the letter refusing his services to…

      You are so right. Up till now I have not heard about the state of the northeast. No news from the west coast parl rep.. Why
      do u want to echoe what has already been said thy the PM unless you can sing it better….Lipton get on with your program and let the PM of the state get on with his. Your job is to follow and act. You are not the leader of the Island u are the leader of the opposition this is 2 different matters.

      DOES DBS BELONG TO SKERRIT OR THE LABOUR PARTY?????THE LAST TIME I CHECKED IT WAS THE NATION’S STATION!!!!

    ……when will Mr Linton learn , now is not the time for them things, it is not a popularity contest, having access to dbs will not make u pm , sit down and do what you and Skerrit should be doing building Dominica…..

    • Smart fool
      September 12, 2015

      What you should learn is that Linton and five other ministers are equal members of parliament, and should have access to the “nation’s station” to address their constituents as well. What does popularity have to do with that?

      We talk about unity but a simple address on the airwaves is an issue? Was it about popularity the day of the storm when Linton was given access then? You Dominicans will never learn. I suppose when the PM is all over social media, GIS, DBS, etc. its for popularity and popularity only.

      And we wonder why Erika hit us like a thief if the night! Our minds need a cleansing!

        As long as they keep to their constituents.
        The PM’s duty is to address nationals on the state of the nation and what progress is being made, also to encourage and uplift them.

      I believe the PM is doing all he can do under the circumstances. Why haven’t we seen the aid that is being coordinated from Lipton. Where are his contacts. This is the big question we need to ask him how is he helping in mobilizing international aid for Dominica instead of looking to be noticed on public media. Get a grip and stop making a spectacle of yourself man… We have had enough of your moaning…
