Prime Minister Skerrit rubbishes idea of Lennox Linton as UWP leader

PM Skerrit and Lennox Linton
PM Skerrit and Lennox Linton

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has described the expected appointment of talk show Host Lennox Linton as political leader of the Opposition United Workers Party (UWP) as “backward and inappropriate”.

When the UWP holds its delegates conference in Castle Bruce on Sunday, it is widely expected that Linton will be confirmed as political leader. He was nominated for that post by the Nominations Committee of the UWP on August 16.

But Skerrit, who was a guest on Kairi FM’s Heng Program on Friday, said “the pitch forking of Linton to the helm of the UWP at this time is an insult to other competent qualified and hard working well enabling members of the UWP and a sad commentary on the state of opposition politics in Dominica.”

The prime minister questioned whether Linton has what it takes to move the country forward.

“Surely, if Roosevelt Skerrit is not the solution to Dominica’s problems today as stated by the UWP, Lennox Linton most definitely cannot be the solution to the country’s problem,” he said.

Skerrit said the Dominica Labor Party, “will not anticipate anything but wait for the formal crowning of the new prince of opposition politics in Dominica and highlight the outrageous nature of this development.”

The DLP delegate’s conference is carded for September 15th at Point Michel, at which Prime Minister Skerrit said “the full take on this clearly backward and inappropriate move shall be articulated.”

He also views Lennox’s imminent appointment as an “insult to everybody,”

The UWP conference on Sunday will be held under the theme “Change is a must.”

    If Lennox Linton is backward and inapropriate as Leader of UWP what would You call Mr. Skeritts choice for President of Dominica?

    INAPROPRIATE and BACKWARD

    After reading the article, and the comments by Dominicans, it is VERY clear that PM Skerrit’s actions has come back to hunt him. I do not see supporters of Labor and the few supporters who decided to comment are talking of either not voting or moving parties. The Dominican people are fed up. It is plain simple and clear to see. Look around us. Look at Dominica. We do not have a proper hospital…we do not even have a playground with swings and slides…we do not have a proper library the future of our kids is not at all bright. The economy is down. Dominicans want change, we need change and I do not believe PM Skerrit will be in office for another term. The White house will go to who deserves it best.

      You are full of BS and without a doubt it appears that you are totally blind to all the present government accomplishments like the road developments and expansions, tourism, the geothermal project, the construction of modern educational facilities, the lighted airport runway, and the list go on and on. After all, think, in this troubled world economy and turbulence. DA is looking good!

    A question I would like to ask skerrit is this.
    Of all the persons who acted as PRIME MINISTER in your absence, how many of them have degree/s?

    Let’s see
    reginald austrie = NONE
    rayburn blackmoore = NONE
    matthew walter = NONE
    charles savarin = NONE

    Who appointed each one of them to act as PRIME MINISTER?
    Answer = the very same roosevelt skerrit who critize Lennox Linton

      Mr Skerrit needs to show us his degree as well. its one thing to say he has a degree but since he is so adamant about qualification show us the authentic copy.

    As a teenager, a young debater and a recent high school graduate, it shocks me to see the high level of stupidity present in our society. A man who was put in place as a leader to serve and represent the people, has the audacity to curse the very same people who GAVE HIM THAT JOB and yet we refuse to open our eyes. Stop being foolish Dominicans. WAKE UP!!!!

      When Julius Timothy was on the UWP ticket I voted for Cecil Joseph instead because of certain things I saw Julius involved in .

    So we are a bunch of parrots. And it comes as no surprise that we would copy Barack O’bama’s election theme that “Change must come”. Barack was offended by the Republican philosophy of “Meism”. In Dominica, the UWP was fed up with its past leadership and made a change. Is that change enough? All political novices need attractive speeches to sway the emotionally weak segments of their constituencies, and Lennox did a good job. But words mean nothing. The airport has been an issue since God was a little boy; yet no government has resolved it!

  8. The Authorities
    September 1, 2013

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

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

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

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

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

    I have been bound and gagged. I have been disrespected. I have been impoverished,I have been unemployed. I have been belittled. I have been owned like a piece of property. I have been underdeveloped. I have been promised and promised and been disappointed. I have hoped and had my hopes dashed.I have voted and had my vote work against me. I have trusted and been betrayed. I have loved and not been loved in return.I have been convinced in the name of God, then God was completely taken out of the equation. I have campaigned and helped win then completely forgotten.I have been ruled and not allowed to have an opinion. I have been dictated to. I have lost jobs. I have watched foreigners come and work and thrive before me in my own home. I have sat by and watch projects where all workers are strangers while I hungered to work. I have been reduced to being a beggar. My pockets are empty. I hardly earn a dollar these days. I am now the least in my own land. This past decade, I have seen the worst days of my life. But all this has made me stronger, I feel the winds blowing, and now I am ready. I am ready for change

    When supporters of the DLP are talking of a propaganda machine, they could not be referring to DNO or media in Dominica. Since Mr. Linton declared his interest in politics and subsequently supporters of the UWP recommended him for the leadership of the party, the political mapuis from Skerrit and the supporters of the DLP have not stop. Three hours out of four hours on the animal show is spent on Mr. Linton’s ability to lead, his education, the many times he has been fired by his former employers. He is referred to be a man they claim that is always boowaye or rather not a people’s man. They even accused him of travelling with two senior UWP politicians to a foreign country. We even heard a boss man from GIS reading on a radio station individual amounts of money he claimed was deposited by Mr. Linton in a foreign bank. They tried to ridiculed him on radio by saying that when a judge asked him questions concerning his qualifications he had to seek his Attorney’s assistance. They accused him of being a violent boy at school, thus the reasons they claim for he being expelled from school. After all that spuing of filth about on man who wants to make a contribution towards his Country, we hear talk of a propaganda machine and legislation to shut the mouth of media in Dominica.

  15. mee1
    September 1, 2013

    I am one who strongly believes that politics will always be politics no matter who is leader of which party. If Mr.Linton is leader of the UWP I think he will be under the microscope of all Dominicans, afterall he is the one who brought out all the ills of the current administration and dominicans will expect much better from him. I do not think he will want Dominicans to see him do the same things he is accusing this government of doing, so my vote is for Linton as UWP leader.
    Now I think there should be a change in the Labour party leadership and Dr.Darroux should be the new leader. I think with all what Mr. Skerrit is accused of and it is growing, if he really says he loves Dominica and Dominicans and he has nothing to hide about his links and friends, he should let someone else lead and see what changes in the next 5 years. I think most Dominicans would like to see some change like that. If you are the captain of a team and your team is getting rediculed and it’s because of you, in the interest of the team it would only be fit to step down and let someone else take a shot to see what happens.
    Mr Skerrit mentioned qualifications. There are miniters who are not even qualified to run a lemonade stand and yet still they are ministers, so where is that thing about Mr.Linton is not qualified coming from. I’ve supported the labour party for years and don’t like the direction the party is taking so I will keep my mouth shut during the next election.

    I am not into politics i am just being a Dominican.

      I see where you are coming from,but honestly, I am from Dr Darroux constituency, and Mr is the Caribbean’s worst representative. This man is a pure and absolute waste of time. He has accomplished absolutely nothing,ZERO, NOTHING, in the constituency,and I ask myself just why the people are so blind, to be thinking of voting this man back. IT’S SHAMEFUL REALLY!

        September 2, 2013

        Did you know that it has been reported that Mr.Darroux and Mr. Skerrit had clashes because o lack of funds and support for his constituency but the government. If the prime minister don’t dive your parl rep the funds needed, his hands are tied and won’t be able to do jack. I do think any minister will use their own money to do things in their constituency, only if their name is Bill Gates.

    So then Mr PM, what made you better than Linton when you became leader of the country by default?

    On comparison, the opposition has much better and more competent people than the bunch that you manipulate and terrify in your team! I am a senior public officer and I know that!

    Your background is in English and you are yet to engage in a national discuss with the opposition to show your intelligence.

    Mark you SIr, I am a labourite and I have decided that I will NOT be voting in the up coming election!

    • Me Camem

      I agree with you that Dominica does not belong to “Roosevelt Skerrit” or anyone for that matter. But what has Mr. Linton done to provide anyone with the comfort that he will be a better leader for the country. When applying for a job, one has to present a resume’, what will Mr. Linton’s resume represent? That he was a radio personality. Do you remember Charles Saverin? All he knew was how to attack, how to breakup things, and not how to build ( Mamo had wisdom to send Charles away, the only voice that could have kept her in check and he took the opportunity and ran.) Jumping from island to island in the Caribbean supporting different parties in other countries is not a satisfactory resume’ to grant one with the job of leading a country. Mr. Linton has to show what he has done at any capacity in community in Dominica. Remember people, politics is a job. Most people enter the political arena because it is personally beneficial, and financially rewarding.

      This not intended to be a qualified support of the sitting party, or an attack on the opposition. But as a concerned Dominican, I really would like to see the best for the country as we move forward. It is time we stop voting personalities and emotions, and start putting people in office who have the best interest of the country at heart, and not people who look at this as a job and not a dedication to the improvement of the country.

      The point to be made there we never ridiculed them for not being educated. We all remember when Pierre Charles was Prime Minister how members of the UWP including Lennox Linton critisized him for not having a degree. Pierre Charles graduated from high school and the Teachers college. Lennox Linton did not graduate from high school and did nothing after school interns of higher education. Not one CXC or GCE. Nothing. That’s the question Lennox Linton needs to answer. Why did he think with all the experience Pierre Charles had along with his life long learning and education background he was not qualified to be PM and today Lennox Linton with nothing thinks he is qualified to be PM. What a hypocrite.

      I want to add that there are many principals and teachers of primary and secondary schools in my time who did not have a degree but produced students who are doctors, lawyers, engineers, who became island scholars, and top university scholars.
      Lennox can walk into any university and within a year he can get a masters degree. There are so many people with degrees and they cannot fit into Lennox’s level. Give me a break. Degree and they are sitting on it. We the senior public officers some without degree are the ones writing their speech, I know of a minister who cannot speak without a written speech.

    What is going on here? It is obvious that UWP supporters dominate the comments. Only the majority of UWP supporters have commented on this article?
    Where are all the PM’s supporters? What happened to them? I hope their comments are not being suppressed.
    It is as though this is an organized plan for UWP supporters and Party promotion. And so many thumbs down for those who support the PM. There are more thumbs down than there are comments from some of those who gave thumbs down. Is this another plan to get all UWP supporters to comment and to give thumbs down to those who support the PM?
    Why? Provide your comments; not only thumbs down. Let us read your opinion.
    Folks, provide your comments. Do not spew hatred. Everyone is the same in the eyes of God. In this case, no one is greater than the other. It is a forthcoming election; not a tug of war, a battle, a war of words. You are only supporters.
    The campaign has not really commenced. If this is what you exhibit, imagine what it will be like when the campaign will be in full swing.
    God already knows who will win this election. Therefore, UWP supporters,, cease beating yourself up and giving yourself anxiety as you have been doing and on other articles. Do not let your blood churn and boil. This will cause you much stress and give you high blood pressure.
    Say and do what you feel for the Party you support but please do not project antagonism towards those who do not support your Party and by no means toward the Prime Minister. Be respectful.
    Keep in mind you are baptized Christians and some practicing ones. As St. Paul said, “A slave of the Lord should not quarrel.” It appears this is what some of you more so, the UWP supporters are projecting which is quite evident in your comments and thumbs down. I noticed this is predominant in the UWP supporters. Be tactful; not insulting and no verbal abuse which is unbecoming on this Website. God’s Peace! Perfect Peace!

How much will you all continue to uphold corruption like it is your bank account. A man with a $5,000 salary built a 1,000,000 dollar house , has properties all over , drives the most expensive vehicles. I hope that you too leaves comfortable.

    In much the same way Earl Williams was made leader with Edison to retain opposition leadership in parliament, Edison has spearheaded Linton for the leadership role so he can exert influence and control. He somehow tries to find a way to do so since to remain party leader after two failed attempts at government would invite too much scrutiny. UWP has lost its way and this is a further manifestation of this fact. So much for a party which held much promise at its inception. Its overlooking, or devouring if you will, of its current cadre of young professionals in this “political cannibalism” does nothing to inspire promise and to present a serious alternative to the current government.

    Of course Mr. Skerrit is not anticipating anything, because he does not know what awaits him. I get the distinct feeling that the P.M. is rattled by these developments. His comments and tone of voice would indicate so. For reasons best known to themselves it will be very difficult for Mr. Skerrit and his best-man Hartley Henry to strategise an effective campaign against Lennox Linton. Their plans have been well and truly thrown into disarray.

We have made mistakes in voting people who disappointed us in the past let’s not repeat those mistakes.

    From High School Drop Out to Prime Minister! What a wonderful story this would make.
    According to the hosts of the Animal Show and the most illiterate PHD Dominica has ever seen, Lennox Linton was thrown out of DGS an never went to university. They have fallen short of calling him a fool because they know that he is much more intelligent than all of them put together and this is based on the quality of his radio program compared to theirs.
    If Lennox is a high school drop-out, what a remarkable come back, this would be hope for all the young girls who were expelled from school due to pregnancy or the young men who suffered the same fate for doubling a class.
    The international news media would take pleasure in carrying this story which would be one comparable to “From Rags To Riches” which would be further glamorized when the story continues with the following:
    In the small Caribbean Island of Dominica a man who the government has demonized for not having a University degree has become the most popular leader in the Caribbean especially when it comes to his oratory skills, his disgust for corrupt leaders and his determination to bring good governance to the political administration of his homeland.
    He was successful in getting the Prime Minister of Dominica to pay his taxes on his, the P.M. land transfer deals and also had government ministers refunding the treasury with over half a million dollars in a corrupt garbage bin transaction where associates of the Prime Minister were caught redhanded defrauding the poor third world country.
    Lennox Linton is feared by the Prime Minister, his Senior Counsel, his PHD ambassadors and other highly educated professionals within the government and the ruling Dominica Labour Party to participate in any debate individually or collectively.
    Three years ago the Prime Minister and his senior legal counsel challenged Linton to get out from behind the microphone of his regular weekly four hour talk show and come into the political ring. The Prime Minister even went as far as stating that he will run in Linton’s constituency to ensure that Linton loses his deposit.
    Well, Linton has taken up the challenge, he has called the bluff and on Sunday 1st September, with a threatening storm approaching the island from the Atlantic, Linton will be crowned king of the UWP and it appears that Roosevelt Skerrit is scared to death.
    The next step for Linton is for Edison James to immediately vacate the Marigot seat to allow a bye-election where Roosevelt Skerrit will have the opportunity to also vacate his Vielle Case seat to challenge Linton in the greatest political war in recent memory. It will be Skerrit’s biggest political humiliation and the beginning of the end of his political career.
    The situation is one where the words of the song of the Trinidad Calypso monarch resonates with reality “BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU ASK FOR!”
    Isn’t this a good story? Since I am not involved in any of the political tribes, I’ll wait and see.
    DNO please make my story a special one as an article from an unknown guest. If you do so I promise to send you many more.

    The UWP must be complemented for considering Mr Linton to be its next political leader.This is a stroke of genius and by the attack of Mr. Skeritt already it is clear that he is scared.He is scared that Lennox already knows so much about his crooked ways in government that if Lennox becomes the next prime minister Mr. Skeritt might do some serious jail time.
    First thing it did was to get Mr Skeritt to admit that the UWP has vompetent, qualified and hardworking well enabling members.Now that says a lot coming from Mr Skeritt about his competition.

    how many times has he bashed members of the opposition saying that none is good enuf to run the country. now mr linton is on and all of a sudden its an insult? before u thot u had no competetor, finally…here’s one. but i guess if i were u id try to kill it before it grows too, knowing its one that cld destroy me. see u at the next election mr skerrit.

It appears, if you are serious in your statement, that you and whosoever you support, have predetermined who will or will not win in these constituencies. It would be interesting to know how it is that you can speak with such authority to this question. I do hope sir that you and your colleagues will do everything possible to facilitate a free and fair electoral process in all constituencies and will not be guided by your absolute desire to ‘win all seats’. I do hope that you will recognise, along with them, that the issuance of VOTER ID CARDS rather than NATIONAL ID CARDS would only add to your governments credibility as it relates to the fairness of the election process and that the issuance of NATIONAL ID CARDS is actually counter productive in this regard. Please explain your ability to make such a profound statement in a bit more detail for our benefit sir!!

      @ Jude Nicholas, You must be living in space or somewhere outside of earth. You gave Skerrit 12 seats and left 9 floating in the air. FYI based on the pain and hardship we have all (including you and you family) endured, and what is happening on the ground I would be shocked if Carib Territory and Roseau Valley stays with Skerrit. I think constituencies like Colihault, Roseau South, Mahault and Soufrierre are all there for the taking. With this new wind of change that is blowing all over in Dominica and the new, young, and candidates of high character that are making themselves available to the UWP, nothing would surprise me.

    So if Lennox was the proverbial man in the wilderness crying out while everyone else was spent why should he be side stepped as the new leader for workers? Wasn’t he accomplishing more than Spags?
    HOWEVER,What about the many youths with degrees, what message is that sending to them?
    Is it still possible to somehow not complete high school and then convince so many unemployed graduates who may have done more than Lennox in that respect to turn around and vote for him? Is that leading by example?
    How is the politics of Workers different from that of Labour?
    Isn’t the concensus that he is not a people’s person make him a poor choice as a leader; people still want their leader to eat a fig and balau in their pot.
    Can someone give a run down what other background makes him worthy to lead the country. Shouldn’t the party by now have shed light on that issue?
    Can’t he hold any other position which will be just as helpful for the party?
    When the election of leader is final then those bombshells will be released.
    Remember, not all that glitters is gold, and many loudmouths can lead others to make unwise decisions, Pais guard!

      @ tumble back kick He (Lennox)has the key ingredients of a leader. Use the computer that you are on there and do some research on the qualities of a good leader.If Skerrit can fool you, then my friend you are really and truly DUMB. He (Lennox) is honest, has integrity,can motivate, he is a team player,can communicate, understands changing trends and acts accordingly, can foresee what is to happen to certain sectors and acts accordingly, he loves his people and his country and wants to elevate their standard of living,he is respectful to his people, etc, etc, etc, etc,.The list is endless.
      SKERRIT’S QUALITIES AS A LEADER:
      1. Shakes your hand
      2. Smiles to you
      3. When election is around the corner give you handouts
      4. Make sure it’s not his business if you are unemployed,if you paro,if you are a beggar,etc

      @Tumble back kick, you have it so wrong. While it may be true that Lenox did not complete high school, by listening to him on any given subject you could tell he is well eloquent and developed and is doing a lot of reading and studying. You made mention of the fact that because he does not have a degree he is sending a wrong message to those many young people who have a degree. However I have a different opinion since we probably have more young people that graduated from high school, but did not make it to university than those that made it and also we might still have more that never attended high school than those who attended high school. The message I see is two fold 1. Life is not over because you fell on the way and did not graduate from high school / university. You could still develop yourself like Lenox, Coby Brian,Shark Oneal and many others did, and rise to the occasion. What a inspiration to those that have fallen! 2. It tells those who were fortunate enough to get a degree that life does not end with a degree. It should motivate them to add to their degree hard work, personal character, trustworthiness, honesty etc. Lenox I bet you will continue to develop himself and he is encouraging young people to go for their degree. As for me, his elevation has motivated me to go all out for my degree but at the end of the day people will not judge you by your degree but by your character.

      lets look at it from a different angle,for argument sake,maybe the prime minister who is in office see how had it is for him to run dominica given the economic condition of the entire world today,and dominica which is third world country at this point in time in great need,and so it is very had to just shake a wand and make things majically happen,probably skerrit is seeing things from an experience point,and not trying to bring down linton,you see dominica is a country where the people are not about development,but of political party,because when you look at where dominica is today,compare to our past leaders and there cabinets,i am left to wonder what dominicans really looking for,they made a grave mistake in voting in the freedom party, which was an upperclass party,they voted uwp which was a marigot community party which of course was the area which benefited the most under eddison james,i have never seen dominica make so much progress since skerrit,now all i see now is that,the other partys which when they had the chance to do what skerrit is doing now,they failed the people,it seem like skerrit has opened there eyes now,they figure they can do better now,but it is to late,these people wasted dominica time to develop,take saint lucia for example,they are way ahead than us,all the while we playing party politics times has changed,things are harder now,show me a man that can shake a majic wand in dominica today.

    Right now I myself not for no party. I am for development and progress. At this point in time (although I voted labour in the last election) if the fresh blood in the UWP party means better things for my country then so be it. I am tired of people taking sides and being split apart by politics. I agree there are alot of things that the PM has to answer for and alot of things that just aren’t working but on the other hand there are things that this government has done which is good, however if there is room for improvement I have no problem bringing in another party and seeing what they can do. Its time that we not let politics divide us. The stability and progress of our country as a people should be our priority. I strongly believe that in life and in general change can be a good thing. It doesnt hurt to see what new ideas someone can bring to the table. Whether labour stays or UWP comes in all I want to see is the people of my country moving forward and that there is development. I love my country and its people dearly and it really isn’t pleasing to see the way politics is dividing us.

I remember how excited the people were when you visited, held children in your arms, had the poor needy mothers crying with joy after walking through their yards, kitchens and bedrooms two weeks before the last election. You witnessed their terrible living conditions, They voted for you and after five years you did nothing.! Now you have seen that your lying promised are glaring you are promising the same thing. You build a state palace for $27M while you neglected the promise to the down trodden. Sir you need to go! Stop lying to the people. Bachkoes and heavy equipment were placed onThe road from petite soufriere to Rosalie a few weeks before the last elections, and you are still repeating today that this road will be build. Why does it take almost five years to complete a road? It’s all be ause you lied!!! No more lies sir. You just need to go.

    As a Labor Party insider I know that some of the big-shots in there wish they had the courage to come out and challenge the DLP leadership, but they are afraid.
    It is clear from Skerro speech that he too is afraid of the momentum that the opposition is gathering and the high quality of candidates who have come forward to represent the opposition.

    Mr. P.M , this is constructive cretinism to you. “Please think before you talk, take your time and slow down, articulation of the English language is not your strength. More often than not it comes out as street talk. When I hear you on the radio it sometimes makes me cringe to know that it is my P.M who talks like that.”

    A drowning man will grab at stray to say himself. So this is the kind of desperation that I have sensed coming from a man who has foreseen that his role as a manipulator of the small minds in Dominica is coming to an end.
    The world has enlighten Mr. P.M and Dominicans are part of this enlightenment, and they want to progress and thus want a better future for their children.
    It is clear that they can’t get it with you, after so many failed exploration by you and your weak administration.
    The DLP has run out of ideas on how to move the Nation forward and it is time to give it up to this young and vibrant candidates who have answered the call on the opposition side.

    We all know you are not qualified to manage money. In fact you are the list qualified to deal with finance in your party and yet you are the minister of finance. You have two former finance ministers that are qualified in your cabinet and yet you don’t trust them. The last time I checked you did not hold a degree in finance but yet you are the paid minister for finace. The only official degree you is in political science thanks to Dr. Peters that gave you a scholarship because of Lipson Leblanc. But political science is simply the study of politics i.e. the ability to blindfold people and fool them. Although during your time as PM you showed us that you possess other political degrees that neither Lenox Linton nor any of your predecessors had but unfortunately DNO will not allow me to name them. All I can say is they are not pretty at all.

    FYI sir, I know quite a few business owners in Dominica that did not even complete elementary school, yet their businesses are very successful while many with degree just cannot manage at all. In fact since you have to pass through Possie to go to your mansion in Viellecase and sometimes to visit some villas in the possie area, ask your good friend from Possie who I believe owns a hardware store and some villas about his qualification for such progress.

    The fact is he has a record, a record of lies and deceit, a record of all sorts of allegations to include corruption, a record of disrespect to the Constitution and the nation. He was given a mandate in the 2009 election and he took the votes for granted and divided the nation.

    Dominica has an opportunity to change things by voting the whole crew out of office in the upcoming election. We know they are prepared to throw the kitchen sink, refrigerator and all they have at Mr. Linton, but it wont work.

    The world has had several opportunities to hear both Mr. Lenox and Mr. Skerrit talk / speak and every honest judge will tell you that the unqualified Lenox will put the highly qualified Skerrit to shame in English and grammar.

    Mr. Skerrit, it’s been a while the leader of the UWP is trying to engage you in a debate and you have refused to get involved. I guess since both Mr. James and Mr. Green were both qualified you avoided them. Here is your moment to put Lenox and the UWP to shame. I challenge you to engage mr. Linton in a debate on any subject you choose and let us see who is really more qualified.

  107. ROSEAU VALLEY
    August 30, 2013

    Thank you Mr. PM (Problem Master. Let us respectfully agree to disagree. Yes “backward and inappropriate” for the DLP as this signals the rapid demise of the DLP and plenty trouble for you personally, economically and politically. Beyond a doubt, this is very progressive and appropriate for the UWP, Dominica and Dominicans.

    Sir, it is you who was “pitch forked” to the helm of the DLP after the death of two patriotic and noble gentlemen, who according to Tony were stabbed in their backs by individuals who were hungry for power and brokes like hell at the time but who are filthy rich today. It is you who undermined your leaders and other potential leaders of the party to become the leader of the DLP. The UWP is going through a constitutional democratic process.

    Before you there were mere wild unproven allegations of corruption in government in Dominica. Now, all we have is repeated twisting of the arms of our laws-including our constitution to promote corruption. In fact, before, you became PM, the word “rubbish” was a simple noun but under your stewardship “rubbish” has become an active verb and even “utter rubbish” has become a single word.

    We dare you to call elections now and you will learn who is an insult to the nation and the patriotic, competent, qualified and hard working, well enabling people of Dominica. In light of your corrupt regime and failed economic policies, it is a sad commentary on the state of the DLP today having won/stolen the last elections so overwhelmingly.

    Many of us –including the author- supported you as a young person when you became PM at such a tender age. But within quick time, we began to see the monster in you fuelled by the power hungry lawyers around you who are convinced that they are serving your cause and doing justice to you legally while slowly but surely destroying you personally and politically. We do not question whether Linton has what it takes to move the country forward. We know that he has in the same way you, Tony, Lawrence and others know that he can and he will.

    Please Sir, be convinced that Roosevelt Skerrit may have been the solution to the DLP when Rossie and Pierro passed. He was indeed seen as the saviour in the 2005 and 2009 elections but that is no longer the case. Dominicans are now convinced that Roosevelt Skerrit is not the solution to Dominica’s problems today. In fact Roosevelt Skerrit is the problem and the solid team of the UWP and Lennox with all his human failings and imperfections is the solution to you- the PM ( the Problem Master). In any event, this is a chance that we are willing to take to advance this country forward and to hold all those responsible for our demise to account.

    The only positive thing that you have stated in this interview is that you shall not anticipate anything as you ought not to but wait for the formal crowning of the new prince of opposition politics in Dominica come 1st September 2013 and begin losing sleep over it.

      Hello Mr.Roseau Valley,

      Campaign for a Labor Party Victory in the coming elections since they have been hard at work in a world of severe economic and political crisis. Without a doubt, Dominica is doing well economically compared with many Caribbean countries and other countries,globally.

      This is not the time for change of government and this is not the time for dirty politics. Let’s unite and work together to move Dominica forward and lets support the Labor Party and make sure they work hard enough to meet our economic needs.

      UWP certainly would like to be elected to serve and do well for our country, Dominica, but there is no need to dump the Labor Party since the Labor Party is doing a hell of a great job in an economically troubled depressed world. After all, we are out there observing and I will tell DA is looking good! Life is rough out there, but….

    • Not Voting UWP Again
      August 31, 2013

      I voted for the UWP from its inception and now wonder why I should continue. I have discussed with my friends and fellow UWP members on this issue.

      There has to be and there are more qualified people in the Party to be leader. I am convince now more than ever before that our party is an Edison James thing.

      What I find very disturbing in your blog Roseau Valley, is “Beyond a doubt, this is very progressive and appropriate for the UWP, Dominica and Dominicans.” Are you kidding me?

      This is 2013, where every school child is striving to go to college/university, and for you to call Lennox’s elevation to leader of UWP as progressive and appropriate for Dominica and Dominicans, is extremely unfortunate. If an alleged 4th forth suspended student is leader of my party, then, I need to get out.

      What is inappropriate is, if Lennox Linton was suspended from DGS as it is alleged, did not continue any formal schooling as it is alleged, has no academic qualification as it is alleged, except for a Birth Certificate and a Marriage Certificate which are not academic qualification and you Roseau Valley says is “very progressive and appropriate for the UWP, Dominica and Dominicans.” is extremely shameful and incomprehensible.

      What message is that sending to the youth of this country? What exactly are you saying to the youth, use Lennox Linton as your role model? You don’t have to achieve any academic qualification and came make it?

      If trying to win an election is all that matters to us UWP at the expense of the ridicule the international community will unleash on Dominica, then go ahead Roseau Valley.

      What a great patriot you’re? I love Dominica. I voted for UWP before, but that is stretching a joke much too far. There has to be a role for Mr Linton, but to tell the international community that someone whom it is alleged did not finish high school, does not have a 5th. forth education is the best qualified person to be Prime Minister of Dominica, is beyond me.

      On this basis, I cannot and will not vote UWP again. Let’s be serious as a people. Dominica is ours and must preserve and protect its name.

      Now go ahead and crucify me for speaking the truth.

    Dominicans must remember.

    Who it was in the DLP Govt, while Pierre Charles was PM, secretly travelled to Barbados, unknowing to Pierro, to meet with officials of the People’s Republic of China, although Dominica had diplomatic relations with Taiwan at the time? What behavior was that? In any country that is a serious offence, given the diplomatic situation between PRC and Taiwan.

    Skerro scared to the bone. It was Linton who did exceptional investigative journalism to disclose all those secret deals and corruption. Remember the Rubbish Bin Bobol? How comes somebody quickly run to pay some money back to the treasury? Why?

    Remember the brutal firebombing crime against innocent citizens? Who have been defending, protecting who?

    What about the 42 charges filed against a certain Lawyer? No reading of charges? No case, then?

    Who authorized the PM to dish out $8,000,000.00 of people’s money, without getting their permission, so to do, to LIAT?

    Who is responsible for the almost total collapse of the productive sectors, including agriculture? More poverty. More crimes. more unemployment.

    What about the millions owed to Venezuela and the constant request for payment? where has that money gone? Garson, too much to talk about. Change is a must, not an option.

    The people of Dominica are now better informed about those deals, criminal acts, and who are the alledged culprits. in many cases, they could onlt turn and twist the facts, but cannot refute the facts. facts are Facts. Truth is truth. The truth is like a thorn in their sides. they have been seriously exposed in their manipulations, deceit and lack of info. No MOU. Influences political and/or otherwise in all institutions that once served us well. Cases of criminal acts are being stalled. investigations in others on Go slow.

    How long? Not Long. The truth from Lennox and other patriots, over the years, about those Bad governance and corrupt practices, will set us FREE from oppression and dictatorship.

Another who learnt from him and continually tries to follow in his footsteps in public but instead makes a fool of himself time after time!! There are many who support Skeritt because they feel that there is infrastructure going up around them and so they will continue to be fooled by programs being implimented by Mr. Blackmore now in an absolute rush to impress, and will continue to ignore the dangers of the influx of foreign cultures and influences. Now we have Chinese polluting our rivers in order to catch fish and Chinese symbols being erected in key locations around town. Chinese businesses taking over and pushing out local ones, with cheaper goods which are sometimes found to be unsafe. We have local craft being overrun by inferior Chinese representations and even have adverts on radio which are 100% in the Chinese language! In other countries, those who wish to become citizens are being asked to prove that they can communicate in local language but in Da, they are advertising in their language in total disregard for the local population who do not understand! I think that it is insulting to be frank!! On top of this we have construction and road works taking place with money borrowed from them to be paid to them with interest but paid to them before the interest, as salaries for them to send home to China for the benefit of the Chinese economy! My goodness….I have one word for all of this……UTTER RUBBISH!!!!!!!1

    how many of our serving politicians are qualified to hold the office they are in? i really want to know. As far as i am concerned to run for office one does not need any qualification. since you are able to pass out handouts to get the votes that is all u need. Dominicans don’t care whether one is qualified or not. we don’t vote qualification, we vote for good looks and handouts. So guess who will or will not get elected. On a more serious note some persons may not be qualified (on paper) to run for office but they may be quite intelligent, much more than those who may think they are qualified on paper. We just need honest men who have the best interest of Dominica.

    There is a saying in Dominica, talk is cheap. Why doesn’t Skerrit put his money where his mouth is. Joseph Isaac challenged Skerrit to a debate, he has been running scared. Skerrit thinks he is popular, why not call Mr. Linton to a debate. Skerrit must stop hiding under the skirts of Kairi, DBS, GIS and the comfort of his home and come on the Hot Seat. We cannot forget he promised Matt an interview over five years ago, Matt is still waiting. I am sure Mr. Linton is prepared to be on the Hegn or the Animal show. Skerrit can jump as high as he wants even over the moon, he will not escape meeting Mr. Linton in a debate before the next General Elections.

    I said recently on one of my bloggs that this man will soon have to be tied and taken in for psychological evaluation? HE IS LOSING IT! Mr Skerrit did you talk of Linton being incompetent to run the party? Mr Skerrit with the abject poverty and backwardness that Dominica is in after 13 long of LABOUR PARTY,and 9 long years of your ruling as PM, what does this tell us of your competence? OH WHAT A SHAME!!!!!
    I can imagine how you are feeling, now that Linton has answered you and has entered the political arena. remember you asked him to do so. BE CAREFUL OF WHAT YOU ASK FOR SIR. I MEAN I KNOW WHY YOU ARE FEELING THIS WAY. THOUSANDS OF OTHER DOMINICANS ALSO KNOW WHY. THE LINTON EFFECT HAS YOU BAR SOO DEE. But Linton is a warrior, EVER BETTER THAN “””evander Real Deal Hollyfield””” the heavyweight boxer.Always remember that you in conjunction with Tony,Seme,on Reggie, and the priest lawyer all you cannot stop him so its not your MA PWEE that will stop Linton.Linton has never been to the gutter, and I doubt he will ever be there.
    QUESTION
    1 Since he is incompetent,are you quickly going to debate him and defeat him soundly?
    2.Are you going to make sure he loses his deposit.
    3.Are you going to show us that you are more articulate than him in televised question and answer fora?
    4.What leadership qualities do you have Sir?
    5.Are you more honest than him?
    6.Which of the two is guiltier in adhering to the basic tenets of life like: Thou shall not lie, steal, cheat,etc? These are key qualities of good leadership?
    7.Which of the two has insulted Dominicans the most?
    It’s obvious that Dominicans are becoming fed up with the RUM SHOP AND GUTTER POLITICS of Skerrit,and like Isaac, Linton THE WARRIOR will answer at the appropriate time I suppose.
    But as PM you need not be afraid of QUALITY OPPOSITION Sir, your stewardship over the past years has OBVIOUSLY GIVEN YOU A “”””GRADE F””” in terms of management of Waitikubuli, and thousands of us want Linton to bring us prosperity and hope.
    The fact that you and your ilks cannot talk about 18-3 anymore is a clear sign that the heat is on you Sir.Take it easy because hypertension can kill. LINTON IS THE LEADER SIR! I WON’T ASK YOU IF IT YOU——-BUSINESS IF LINTON IS UWP LEADER.I AM NOT A RUM SHOP. HE IS THE LEADER,AND THOUSANDS OF US LOVE HIM AND LOVE THE IDEA.
    HOW LONG? NOT LONG!

      If you light your candle it will not be for a good purpose and so it will not have an effect. We light candles for good; not for bad and against others. Your candle or your effort will not be blest. Do not use God to do the work of evil, the devil. You will reap what you sow.

    I am wondering loudly. If Lennox had decided to run as a DLP candidate, would the PM and his cohorts be singing this song. Think back a few years ago my friends and please look inwards.

    This Skerrit is the epitome of show off. He sits, as it were, on a petestal created via a coup and now pontificates as if he is the standard by which governance and statesmanship are to be graded. If Lennox is voted to lead the UWP, by all measures, he will be in a much better intellectual and informed position to lead than Skerro was when he took over from the late Pierre Charles. Skerrit was a “nobody” when he ascended to the helm of his party. He had done nothing worthy of news before being made PM except going to China. The electorate didnt know him. His veiws on everything was not known. He was not a public figure. He challenged no one. And he would have been the last to be chosen had the DLP better men and women aspiring for leadership. So, for Skerrit to come and speak on Lennox as to the latter’s suitability for leadership is to be compared to hermit monk advising on sexual reproduction and the challenges of parenting. Go confess your sins, Skerrit. Go and be bathed in holy water. The financial atrocities of which you have been accused, surely disqualifies you to even comment on the suitability of one for leadership. Puff your chest to those who grin at your mediocrity.. Just leave the opposition alone.

    Apparently, Skerrit is terribly afraid of Lennox Linton. Why is he so bothered about who UWP choses as their leader? He should be glad that UWP is chosing someone in his opinion is weak and cannot stand up to him. He should welcome Lennox and challenge him to a televised debate to expose his weakness and incompetence instead of uttering gibberish. There are ministers in his cabinet who are more qualified than him why is he not stepping aside and allow them to lead!!!

    Don’t know why Skerrit is bothering to comment on who UWP chooses to be the leader of their party. When Dominicans were asking questions he told us to,”Go to hell it is none of our damn business…” The same could be said to him right now.

    And the fact that he even comments on this, lets us know that he is scared.

    Degree means nothing…..if degree meant so much in Dominica, why do we have so many qualified persons on the streets doing nothing while those who have no subjects at all are the ones employed within the Ministries because of who you know and who know you?

    Mr. Skerrit you forget is pointe Michel you use to run to let de little black boy help you with your homework…..wosh… wosh and today you passing him like a black sheep.

    If Lennox is of no threat, then take him on, on a national debate and lets see who is more qualified

    to much dirty drain politics in DOMINICA.

    Skerro no disrespect but you sound scared to me .If you are doing what you are suppose to do then Lennox appointment should not bother you right? The sad part is your followers listen to you and still cannot read between the lines.Dominica need a change and the country needs someone that can see further than their dimples .

    as far as i see it UWP has to rebuild the party in order to remove the dlp in office and lenox as political leader isn’t the way. i’m so disappointed.Dominicans fasten your seat belts and get ready for another term of DLP in office.

  153. dortyboy
    August 30, 2013

    I see the Prime Ministers point. We as Dominicans need to seek the highest qualified citizen to run our country. Someone who knows about the global market and has the ability to move Dominica in those challenging times.
    we can’t be moving backward all the time. Just because u appear to be popular doesn’t mean you are what’s best for the country. Just because Micheal Jordan is the most famous athlete in the USA doesn’t mean he would have made a great president. America n the rest of the world will always be light years ahead of the Caribbean because politicians come with a level of degree n qualifications

      • September 1, 2013

        For telling us it’s not our dam business when we ask questions or go to hell when we ask where the money is comming from or telling the House that we(Dominicans) are to fee because we speak our minds and a lot more insults. I dont believe those a good character for a leader and I’m so you wouldnt want any child or children of yours go thru life with attitude like that so when you say the PM is qualitied I ask as what?. No one is asking you to turn away from your party that’s your choice but it’s time you open your mind I do believe you agree we need a change .

      August 30, 2013

      So did we move backward or forward with Skerritt? You are a fool to have that mindset and a degree is good to have but honestly I have dealt with people that have all the book sense and have no common sense or street sense and they act like a fool.Can you enlighten me what sense takes you further in life?Lennox may not have a degree but he talk with more class than our present prime minister.Have you listen to the way Skeritt addresses people lately…Absolutely NO CLASS!!!!!!

    • September 1, 2013

      That’s why some Presidents and Prime Ministers surround themself with best men/women that can help to bring out the polies for the country for example the President of the USA that’s what make is great but our PM decides to run the Island by himself he was a one man leaders and the sadest thing about it is the other ministers sit back and allow that to happen now we the people are suffering Well we need to make new plans and we will be making changes that will be for all of us.

      Dortyboy, there are minister who can even run a lemonade stand and yet still they are ministers. A degree does not mean you are qualified to run a country, once you have common sense and you listen to the people who put you there you should be ok.

    With all due respect to you Mr. Skerrit, if you could emerge as Prime Minister of Dominica in 2004 after the open betrayal of Pierre Charles, with no claim to fame on your part, after three years of no accomplishments as Minister of Education except walking out of Cabinet disrespectfully, a complete unknown in Dominican politics, then Lennox Linton is more qualified than you to lead the UWP and even the DLP.
    The constitution of Dominica does not make any provisions for a university degree to be Prime Minister, if you believe that this should be a condition, you have the power to change the constitution.
    If you are so confident that Lennox is so unsuitable to lead then challenge him in a live debate, one on one.
    It is quite evident that you and the DLP are scared to death of Lennox Linton. After all you are the one who challenged him to come into the political ring.
    You better look from within at the bunch of incompetence that you have on your team. Why is the UWP attracting so many new credible candidates and you are stuck with the same old baggage? What can you offer in the next five years that you could not offer in the last 15 years?
    Your days are numbered and I smell panick in the camp.

      I couldn’t agree with you more Annica. skerrit et al invited Mr. Linton into the ring and now that he is there they are bellowing that he shouldn’t be? If it is so much of a backward move on the part of the UWP, then skerrit should be the happiest person in Dominica as it would mean another opportunity to continue (to borrow from Boople’s calypso)his laundering and plundering of the cow. The only finger that can be pointed at Lennox is his lack of a degree which in my mind is a red herring. I would like to ask skerrit et al how does his degree in “English” help him in his everyday job functions as minister of finance? How much does ambrose georges’ degree in agronomy help him as minister of constituency affairs and information (whatever it is)? How does kenneth darrouxs’ degree in “Medicine” help him as minister of the environment? I applaud all those with degrees of any kind. From my own experience without a degree, I executed job functions that engineers in similar companies in the region were assigned. You see at the end of the day while having a degree is an accomplishment, the lack of one doesn’t mean that you can’t perform at the highest level once you have the ability, experience and skill. Further, having the opportunity and ability to using the said degree in your daily job functions and personal development is another. It’s pointless having a degree that can’t put to use. Where can mr. skerrit use his degree in “English” other than in teaching, if he were to be removed from government? While ambrose and the like can go into private practice, where can skerrit’s degree in “English” take him? Oh and that crap about psychology doesn’t cut it, that was not his major.

      • Asterix
        August 30, 2013

        To add further, I do now have a degree but with my current job, as of now; I still don’t get to use it in my job functions, at least not as yet. Hopefully I will have the opportunity to.

      Annica! You obviously forgot that this is 2013 and not 1320. What message is UWP sending to qualified young individuals in Dominica. Guess you can confirm via this DNO that Skerrit has made a mistake to quallify himself academically, the building of the State College is an error in judgement, the granting and sending hundreds of our kids to university all over the world is an error in judgement.

      Are you prepared to tell the several hundreds /thousands of parents who invest heavily by sending their kids to college/university, that their investment is in vain? Are you telling the several banks that qualifying oneself is not necessary? Are you saying to the several well meaning individuals that they are making a mistake by spending their money on sending kids to university?

      Finally, tell Dominicans and the world by extension that in Dominica you can hold any position without being qualified once you are presumed popular.

      What sad state of affair, it is no wonder UWP claims Dominica to be a “failed State”

        That is clearly not what the writer is intending. Rosie Douglas did not have a degree either and he became PM. A degree is very important, but it is not absolutely essential. So many people with degrees including Masters degree cannot complete a simple sentence where the verb agrees with the subject! Plus, nowadays with degrees available online, many people have others write their essays and they claim degrees!

        You speaking the truth but then u are still trying to twist it. Yes in Dominica you can hold any position without being qualified, and that is under Roosevelt Skerrit’s administration.

        And the message has not changed, the same message Skerrit has been sending to Domnicans for years it’s the same message they receiving. And that is, you can achieve anything in Dominica by having the right contacts, qualification and competence do not mean rass.

        So the dream team headed by Honorable Lennox Linton is ready to change that!

      The other, Calm,confident, focused, solid.

      I am encouraging all DLP members and supporters, please stock up on Paracetamol and low dose aspirin, because after September 1st, all hell break lose, crapoe smoke all you pipe.

        What do you propose the government should say to his parents? We will go to all homes and discipline your children. The parents, and the deviant children are the ones to be held accountable for their acts. Did the Government put the gun in his hand and pulled the trigger.

        The Government can put measures in place to increase security levels at the schools, and continue to advocate that parents raise their children right. What you want the Government minister on the radio trying to score cheap political points at the expense of the family suffering.

        Lady hush up yes and if you know what is best go and empathies, and sympathize with both families because both are devastated and hurting right now.
