UPDATE: Ronnie Isidore out

Isidore has been under pressure from certain member of the UWP
Isidore has been under pressure from certain members of the UWP, according to reports

It is official.

Senator Ronnie Isidore will not be contesting the Mahaut Constituency for the United Workers Party (UWP) in the next general election.

President of the United Workers Party (UWP), Ezekiel Basil, told a press conference on Thursday that “persistent behaviors over the past eight months by Isidore are contrary to to party’s ‘firm commitment to truth.”

He said this has led to the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party to recommend Isidore’s removal as the UWP candidate in the Mahaut constituency for the upcoming general election.

Isidore and the top brass of the party have been at loggerheads for the past months and all efforts at arriving at an amicable solution to the situation proved futile.

Bazil said in recent times, the UWP political leader, Lennox Linton, told the media that the party would address the issue of confirmation of candidates, and to a great extent the Mahaut constituency. He then announced the withdrawal of Isidore who was already an endorsed candidate.

“The National Executive of the UWP has tabled and passed a recommendation to withdraw Senator Ronnie Isidore as the endorsed candidate for the Mahaut constituency for the upcoming general elections,” Bazil said. “Over the past eight months, Senator Isidore has had a number of trust and respect issues with the leadership of the UWP and the executive members of the Mahaut constituency association, which has adversely affected the party’s campaign for change across the constituency.”

He continued, “Notwithstanding the many opportunities given to him to integrate harmoniously with the team, Senator Isidore has persisted with behaviours that are contrary to the party’s firm commitment to truth, togetherness and effective team work for the good governance of Dominica.”

According to Bazil, the decision of the party’s National executive Council, concerning the recommended withdrawal of Isidore as candidate for the Mahaut constituency and other matters which will include the final ratification for all candidates already declared, will be presented to the next meeting of the UWP General Council for ratification.

The General Council is the highest decision making body of the UWP between annual conventions.

    TRUE WESLEY MAN May 16, 2014
    FRANCISCO!!

    WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU VISITED WESLEY?

    So please stop posting like you know what’s going in the village!!!

    PLEASE STOP!

    You may not be the only fool who keep asking me that. I do not have to visit Wesley every day or year in person to know what is going on in Wesley. For your information, I speak to people in Wesley everyday. I support people in Wesley financially, I take care of my business!

    I am not like some of them as soon as they have few dollars they run to Dominica only for people to ask “you doh know who da come nu;” and call their name. I am not a pappy-show as you are; writing in block letters, and placing three exclamation points behind a sentence. That informs me that you are an uneducaed idiot; one who has not spent enough time in school.

    Maybe you should try to educate yourself, by paying someone to teach you before you attempt to contend with me. If you know so much about Wesley tell me what has happened in Wesley today. Mind your business, okay, I do not need friends, and friendship with people I know who are beneath me intellectually.

    Heaven had it’s problems an what did the heavenly father do “Kick Satan Out”; i’m not comparing Ronnie with Satan no way! but people understand we are mere mortals with divers opinions. This is not the first time that we have had political divisions within our political parties. It happened as far back as i can remember in LeBlance’s day. D/ca survived; guess the voting public (citizens) at that time were more politically educated than today; no insult to (us) High School; College and University grads or drop-outs. The issue for which change is being echoed is bigger than Lennox or Ronnie. It has been said that a Government is a reflection of it’s people an country; all that hype about the Mahaut constituency an who should or should not represent which party is merely “water under the bridge”.

    May 17, 2014

    Sorry but i have to speak my mind on this issue as a Dominican, not as blue, red or green. As everyone else i am very disappointed. Here we are going around the world bringing to the dominicans out there the message of change which we all admire. That is good i like it, i really like it. This problem arises before we all ever started our mission internationally. The public is going to say we not ready yet. Mr. Linton why in Gods name did we do that right in the moment of an election that is so critical. i just think this should have been dealt with inside and not in the media. We have to stop worring about what labour doing in their stupid camp and focus on ours with all this confusion. Labour has all these issues and we just have this one little issue and we let it get out of proportion. I am very worried that we will be losing alot of votes now because there are the people who voted Mister Isidore who do not like the party but because of him and his character, and that is the truth. We have lost a very good and well spoken candidate inspite of what the problem is within yourselves. i just cannot see what can create this problem. However life goes on and let us see what god has in store for us. Blessings

    Damage control time for UWP.. Ronnie was out a long time ago, they could no longer deny it. The UWP has no class,why call a news confrence the purpose of which is to fire Isidore? Just replace him, instead of this public humiliation. When ministers are been fired the PM whoever he or she is uses the cover of a cabinet reshuffle to acheive that end.

    What is so strange is that, since UWP fired Ronnie, it’s only Labourites that vex. That’s very suspicious. Now if they love him so much why don’t they just sub Blackmore and send Ronnie in his place?

      But but did the UWP really and truely fire Isidore – because for clarity I just went back to the news conference clippings on podcast andI heard the UWP President clearly say that recommendations for the withdawal of Isidore as a UWP candidtae will be heard by the hirachy of the party and that a decision on Isidore fate will be made by this highest body governing the party – that is the Executive committee and from what I heard that highest decision making body has not met therefore a final decision or a determinaton on the matter has not been taken; therefore I think we should all refrain on contaminating the process or the decision of the final body . I personally will therefore refrain from making any further comments until the final ruling by the ultimate decision making body of the UWP IS MADE PUBLIC ; At that hearing it is expected that both sides of the story will be heard and that a final decision will be taken one way or the other. I therefore strongly suggest that members of the party including Isidore and also its critics involved should refrain from speculating and to allow the due process to take its course.

    TEAM PLAYER TEAM PLAYER. Another candidate the UWP must get rid of is JOSEPH ISSAC. He is the worse one on the list. I remember numerious calls was made to Norris Prevost, telling him to check out JOSEPH ISSAC history and he did nothing about it. LENNOX LINTON take my advise Check Out JOSEPH ISSAC history. If you do you would be SHOCK left alone you would get rid of him immediately.. If he remains as a UWP candiate after you do your research about him know that will be a sure seat you all will LOSE. UWP supporters continue to tell them about him and please don’t show a deaf ear NORRIS PREVOST this time.

    At the UWP press conference, Lennox Linton was named as one of their confirmed candidates.
    As leader of the UWP, he is automatically a confirmed candidate.
    The relevant information would have been where he was chosen to represent.
    Interestingly, unlike the case with the other confirmed candidates, he was NOT allocated a constituency.
    In my opinion, this was the most significant revelation from the press conference.

    The real concern for UWP is whether there is a possibility of removing Blackmore as the Mahaut parliamentary representative.
    As an independent observer, I think not

    You all labourites are just wicked. The same thing is happening in your camp and you say nothing. The selecting of a candidate is a democratic process and if the constituents are not happy with who they have, it is their political right to select who they feel is the better person. Not so in the labour party, it is one man that choosing who he wants. Are you people serious? No wonder why Dominica is not better off. What is going on in your DLP is good for you, but in the UWP it is not good. Dominica will never be better if you people only say good is good based on who do it; and bad is bad based on who does it. Fairness is far from you. Only labourites are Dominicans, they can do what they want and it is right for them. No other has the freedom. But God is a God of justice. The longest rope has an end. Do you remember Chavez? Where is he now?
    Dominica is a democratic country and it does not belong to one person. All Dominicans have a right and it is our privilege to select who we want. Go and straighten up the mess in the DLP. Go talk to the most corrupt government in the EC. We had enough of the labour party. IT is time for a change. DOminica does not belong to one set; it is all democracy. Change must come because we have been too long living in poverty, while a few are benefiting. Open your eyes, you labourites and see what is happening.

    This is an unfortunate turn of events but alas, one I could see coming. I know Ronnie very well, he’s a friend, going all the way back to our days at SMA. I love the man. Ronnie has 3 significant flaws, however.

    When he has settled on to a position that he believes is his righteous cause, he becomes an immovable object; you cannot get him to modify his stance even in the face of overwhelming odds against it. In other words, he has the propensity to “die with his boots on” as the saying goes. Which leads to the second flaw; he holds a grudge.

    Let’s face it, Ronnie wasn’t going to win the leadership battle with Lennox, Edison’s “annointed” one. And Ronnie probably knew that, but he persisted precisely due to flaw #1. But Ronnie is not one to be the political leader of any party; he’s a great speaker, he can rally people to your cause, he has ideas, but he’s not the “political leader” type; Ronnie is more of a “right-hand man” type of guy, a potentially powerful political operative who could wield significant influence on the sidelines. But he is not “political leader” material. And because of this flaw, he was destined to hold a grudge for not having won the leadership battle. Ronnie is not the type to say, under these circumstances, “ok, I lost, let’s move along for the sake of the party and the goodness of the country”. He’s not the type to reconcile in these types of situations. Whilst in your party he will not deliberately sabotage your efforts but he certainly will not assist you in achieving your objectives. You on your own, and don’t call on him for help because if you do, you will soon discover that, well, you on your own, check your vibes, you do your thing, he’ll do his. That’s the Ronnie I know; you have to understand that I know the man for close to 40 years, all the way back to our days at the St. Mary’s Academy. He is a genuinely good man but like all humans, he has his faults, and these 2 flaws I know of and experienced personally over the years. So this doesn’t surprise me one bit; I think the party did well to exorcise this problem now and not later, when it could be an even greater distraction, which it could still become because of the 3rd flaw; he can be vindictive.

    Freed from the party, I can see Ronnie switching sides and campaigning for Blackmore, not out in the open but subtlety. I doubt that he would, but again, I would not be surprised if that development would come to pass. But that could be a catastrophic error; his reputation would take a hit. And again, he’s not one to care or to thing of that first before he acts. Although that may suggest that he could be reckless, I beg to defer; he’s an individual who’s resolute and if he believes he’s got the right cause, then full speed ahead (flaw #1).

    To those of you that follow cricket Sammy taught us a good lesson this week. Sammy was a good captain but the selection panel felt it was time to change the direction they were going and therefore replaced Sammy with Ramdin. Two days later Sammy resigned from test cricket and vowed to continue supporting the team by making himself available for both T20 and one day, where he knows he has a sure pick, He did not go about vomiting secrets of West Indies with any of the opposing boards.. He realized the selectors spoke and he was not ready to hope for a pick so he simply saved himself and retired. That’s what Ronnie should have done. H e did not get the leadership of the party and he should either do like Sandford and move on as a team player or resign from the party. To go and sell out what is said in private just to get an Easy-door is wrong and clearly shows he is not a team player.

    I sincerely hope that UWP is not committing political suicide.
    Those who believe that the Freedom Party is dead really do not understand politics. Neither the Labour Party nor the UWP has a sufficient support base to put them in power. DLP is enjoying power now because of the Freedom votes and UWP can only ascend to power if they could persuade the Freedomites.
    So Brian Alleyne and other classic freedomites might navigate towards UWP with candidates like Ronnie, but if you chase them away then the result will be devastating.
    Freedomites are for sale right now and sadly they are the ones who will decide the next election.
    Take this from a political wizard who understands the dynamics of Dominican politics.
    UWP should be patient with Ronnie, I hope they get another Freedom attractive candidate.

      I some how agree with you but to say DFP is for sale is very wrong. As a Freedomite who only voted DLP from 2000-2009, just to keep UWP out, I can say to you that my party is not for sale. I wish UWP and Ronnie had both committed to the call for change but unfortunately, they didn’t. Come next election I will be voting UWP simply because of Lennox Linton as leader. As a fellow freedomite, I can assure you that if Ronnie was made the leader I don’t believe I would be on board with them because I have not seen leadership in him. Then to spill out party secrets with DLP base just before an important election is unacceptable and therefore I support what the UWP did.

    Not surprised at all, I agree with Ronnie 100% for not wanting to work with a drop out of school leader, I would have done the same and contest the leadership , but the big question is who will be candidate for mahaut constituency ? is it lenox ? theres more to come it’s not over , just asking Mr linton are you still disappointed no date of election? liar liar pants on fire, I see desperation and that Ronnie situation I see you uwp just shoot your self in the leg ,and as a result you don’t need to put any candidate in that constuency unless you want to make a contribution to the treasury of Dominica ,Labour is the change we will stay with the change . :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    Folks this is not a big deal at all.. Every political party has its internal conflicts and makes decisions based on his policy and procedures. If the leadership felt that Ronnie wasn’t playing ball with them then it made the right a decision to fired him. Also Ronnie was not favored to beat Blackmoore in Mahaut anyway. Remember in 1975 Labour PM Patrick John fired Mike Douglas who they say did not respect John was not a team player.

      I’m so pleased that Ronnie is a very educated individual to understand what people like you have to say and I’m very glad that he big up his party and to say he is not running anywhere Ronnie is telling you in every days life their will be issues but that dont mean the door is closed and that if he doesnt run as their choice he would be in a better position to help to sellect another person as good as himself so when you a dishing out your hot air think first because their is a process and that every one have to go thru it, it’s not like the DLP where only one person(PM) calls the shuts. Ok.
      But to make it much clearer it’s like if you have a man on the play ground and he is not doing much to be able to win the game the coach takes him out and he send in someone else but the first guy is still part of the team so that’s what Ronnie is saying if you were listening.

Stop saying he want leadership and want to be a leader and cannot get over linton being the leader. that is the poor excuse you all are using to get him out.

    Most of the comments made on this article are just b.s.. It’s like folks wanting to see their nom-de-plume and comments on the internet so they just write anything on their minds. All this nonsense about Labour Party and Blackmore, and how Ronnie is a good man, these things don’t contribute to intelligent discourse. Political parties are faced with challenges everyday and decisions have to be made. That the candidate is popular is insignificant if he is more burdensome in another critical area. Babs Dyer was the successful candidate in Roseau North and was given a Cabinet Office, but when his loyalty and team play came into question, The Dame looked at him straight in the eye and barked out, “You’re Fired!!” Yes, this powerful Parl Rep and patriarch of the family law firm was dismissed.
    Senator Atherton Martin suffered the same fate under two regimes. Ambrose George, Parl Rep, was also fired twice, by Rosie Douglas and by Pierre Charles.
    If a political party has reason to question the collective responsibility of a party member, it would be clearly the right thing to do, to discipline him. And if opposition supporters wish to bray about it, let them!
    Ronnie has been my good friend for a couple decades, but he is definitely not political, Cabinet and leadership material. If his party is successful, Ronnie should be given administrative work.

    Is removing Isidore to put Lennox in Mahaut affording Workers a chance to win that sit…. Of course so… Put the leader in Mahaut to take blows….
    When i see Lennox, I see a person if given a chance to become Prime Minister, the Ministry gate being closed from the first floor and only those he wants to see can come.
    I see Lennox in a big chair saying send that Labourite home because he did not vote Workers
    I see Lennox demanding that Dominicans must go to work on Easter sunday or No christmas holidays… DICTATOR

    Isidore is out simply because he had the balls to challenge Lennox for leadership.. simple

    By the way where is Deputy Leader and the Leader of the Opposition… shouldnt these two men be holding a prominent position at a Workers news conference……

    Alas Workers, the longer Skerrit stretch that elections is the more allyou dig hole… What next.. Salisbury debacle?

    A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. No team can be successful if there continues to be a dissenting, untrustworthy, unworkmanlike behavior coming from the minority within. I love Ronnie but truth is his ego has gotten the best of him. Party leadership is not determined by one person but rather through a democratic process. Lennox won the leadership battle but Ronnie never got over the loss hence became a huge distraction. Further, we all know Ronnie is NOT ready to lead the party.

    Lastly, one cannot go to closed door meetings and soon after deliver the “top secret” good because and EASY-DOOR is eager to open up to you so you can come in and day-par-lay. I love you Ronnie but you are wrong and should take responsibility for what happened. Nonetheless, Change is a Must so you are forgiven and welcomed to stay as a UWP member because the party remains all inclusive.

    Whether you Like Mr. Lennox Linton or not, this boy from Marigot knows what it is to be transparent. When news got out that their was rangling in the Party relating to Ronnie, he told Dominicans and the rest of the world by extension that a press conference will be held and a statement will be made on the situation. Hello, a press conference is called, the rest is history. When is Skeritt going to hold a press conference and be questioned like Mr. Linton and the rest of the UWP Team Dominica were questioned and tell Dominicans reasons relating to the alleged discarding of DLP candidates such as Miss Shillingford, Timothy, Graneau, Pinard, Toulon, Walter and Douglas.

    • A Doubting Thomas
      May 15, 2014

      The topic is about the UWP. Is it that difficult to remain on topic? Who is UWP putting up now as a candidate in Mahaut? Now that there is CHANGE. The Party Leader? Oh no! not against Blackmore. DLP has that one locked down. If you can drift so can we too.

      Where is the UWP Party Leader running? That is the big question UWP should be concerned about. Not about the DLP Candidates. The DLP knows in what constituency their Leader is running. Doesn’t the UWP need to know where their leader will run? Is it in Salisbury, Marigot, or Roseau Central? Well not Roseau Central, this one is in the bag for the DLP already.

      Dominicans would like some members on the Opposition side in Parliament after the next general election. The UWP Leader would most likely love to run in the Roseau North, I am sure of it; but the DLP is solid there and that would mean an end to his political career…..ah, an end to ever becoming an MP before it has even started. Because he only has one chance and it is now or never and we all know it. He cannot wait 5 more years. He needs at least one seat, his own, but where? Dominicans want to know.

      That is what the UWP should be concerned about. All the other distractions are not lost on us and we are using them as dasheen leaves. The UWP has real issues for a party who wants to be next government.

    Well you can see the reasoning of Dominicans lead by the news media – you mean the UWP had a news conference for almost 2 hours and the only thing worthy for media coming from that news conference is about Ronnie Isidore- I tell you we are really a backward people; Ask for Carlisle Johnbaptiste of all that was said in the news conference the only thing that was of interest to him is Ronnie Isidore and the malee- there were so many issues and matters brought forward at this news conference but the only thing that is of interest to the media is Isidore what a bunch of jokers really.

    Tout Isidore say Isidore Ronnie never accepted Lennox as Leader and he had a problem with that, he kept on undermining the party which was not fear as a member of the team. he was given many opportunity to adjust to the situation which he never did, even when he was given the chance to clear himself he didn’t. A vote was taken and all voted to withdraw the candidate so as to arrest further damage. Ronnie had on foot in and one foot out in favour of the DLP. Why have someone in the camp you are not comfortable with and he is not comfortable with also.

    Though this type of infighting is not good for a party the UWP demonstrated today what living in a democratic country should be about.

    On the other it is surprising that not much is being made about the infightings in the labor party… have we just become immune to the disorder in the labor party or are we just too scared to speak out!!!

    But this not the most shocking news I heard this morning. The closing down of a number of local small and large businesses to the Chinese is more concerning. Did you hear the amount of businesses that have shut their doors??

    The question is does these Chinese employ Dominicans, are they paying taxes, do they patronize with other businesses, are their moneys staying in Dominica?

    Do we really care about what is happening to our Dominica or is this about personalities – Linton vs Skeritt?

    Think Dominicans before it’s too late!!!

    DNO, I like your headline for this article. “Ronnie Isidore out,” and your first sentence: “It is official.” Is it official now that:
    Miss Gloria Shillingford – Out. Mr. Dayton Baptiste – Out. Mr. Graneau #2 – Out. Mr. Ian Pinard-out. Mr. Toulon- Out. Matthew Walter -Out? Also, Ian Douglass- Call under review’and waiting on third umpire; Mr. Reggie Austrie – Call under Review and waiting on third umpire; Mr. Ambrose George, who is acting PM- call under review and waiting on 3rd umpire. Julius Timothy- Call under review and waiting on 3rd umpire? Same thing with Castle Bruce, Morne Jeaune, and the Valley? Boy the only sure player is the captain jesus.

      If there are broken links within the party that refuses to commit fully they should be removed but it would be much better they should resign but the party brass do have the right to send those people packing Ronnie got enough chances to adjust himself he failed the test he only have himself to blame .UWP is runningtheir campaign on integrity,transparency,rule of law ect therefore they are just practicing what they preach so we should not be shocked.
      Those are the kind of changes we are calling for when something is wrong we should not try to sweep it a side we have to deal with it dont allow it to fester knowing that their are those that will not agree with the out come.
      If Ronnie still believe in the party and is still a supporter he should continue to do all that he can to make sure Team D’ica UWP gets in power, by then he would have showed he still wanted change for the people and the Island.
      The UWP made the right decision in the case of this matter.

    I welcome this new development and congratulate the UWP on this BOLD and decisive move. This is testimony that this organization is bigger than any one person or subset of the organization. My thing is once your attitudes and or behaviors are counterproductive and trust in you is coming into question, then you ought to have been discarded.

    We see it happening with the DLP when on separate occasions Ambrose George’s trust and integrity was called into question resulting in him being fired. The only difference is that the DLP has NO SCRUPLES and he was brought back into the cabinet both times. So they have no real philosophy but only seem to react to public criticism that is legitimate. Other than that they would not care less. This attitude by the DLP only breeds treachery. Will Roosevelt Skerrit ever in his lifetime trust Ian Douglas again?, if he ever did in the first place.

    The foolishness about Lenox Linton being a dictator and had it coming for Ronnie is utterrubbish! For your information the very delegates from the Mahaut Constituency supported Lenox for leader over Ronnie. No one dare challenge the leadership of the DLP and that is the truest meaning of dictatorship.

    I know for a fact that a number of people who have not been registered in the Mahaut constituency and are willing to support the UWP were passed on to Ronnie. He has yet to approach these people. It is clear to many out there that Ronnie had his own agenda and such as man has no place on a team.

    Can you imagine going to war with a man like this on your side with a loaded gun? Have you ever heard of friendly fire? In a team setting one’s allegiance must reside with the team and not with the enemy.

    The DLP needs to take a few leaves from the UWP’s openness and accountability. For example Ian Pinard places on the public record that he is not running and that Sam Martin is the man but in the usual highhanded manner and lack of respect for the constituency Sam is discarded and Ian is once again on the cards and “no dog bark”. Look at how they themselves undermined Vince in St. Joe. See what is happening with Bentley Royer in Salisbury, Dayton Baptiste in Marigot, Graneau in Kalinago Country, how they incited Mervin Paul to go after Austrie in Cottage, Gloria in Wesley and the lists goes on and on.

    In St. Joe a few short years ago Skerrit spoke about getting rid of Parl. Reps who were not performing. On May 5th he agrees that some have not played their part. However he dare not touch them. He knows that Peter is bitter with a family of 18 DLP voters and supporters in his own constituency, he also knows that Grandbay is aggitating against Justina and several discussion have be held at caucus level (every Monday) calling for the replacement of these and in cliques they speak badly of their colleagues but embrace them in public. I can’t associate with this kind of treachery and political vulgarity.

    The UWP has once again demonstrated to the entire world that they are transparent, responsible, mature and team spirited. Also that they can manage conflict and rule by consensus. This is the type of leadership that Dominica yearns for at all levels be it at the home, work place, the church or government. I like that…. I really like it! I shall repose my trust and confidence in this Team Dominica for obvious reasons and this time around I have moved away from party politics and putting Dominica first. My friends with today’s move by the UWP I am thoroughly convinced that change is no longer an option…IT IS A MUST!

    I support UWP this time around, but I need a better explanation as to why Ronnie was let out. Simply running for the leadership can’t be the reason – it is a democracy- Hillary Clinton ran against Barak, and then became his Secretary of State. I am concern about this decision, because I listen to Ronnie in Parliament, and he is well spoken. Can the UWP team be a little more transparent on that one?

    May 15, 2014

    This move by the UWP to oust Ronnie is timely and demonstrates very clearly, that the UWP under Lennox Linton’s leadership is a NO NONSENSE party. This is a team effort, the party has rules and regulations and if Ronnie refuses to play by them, then he must be disciplined. From the look of things, this is certainly not the labour party which had to cave- inn to Vince and Skerrit after the 2000 election, when they decided to BLACKMAIL Rosie if they were not given new SUV’s and Ministries, even if they were NOT deserving of such rewards at the time. This is not the Skerrit labour party which had to saddle the country with 16 inept and incompetent ministers because they wanted to keep everybody happy. Ronnie must understand that he is not God’s gift to politics and failure to play by the rules comes at a price. This is what happens in any serious and professional organization. This is what leadership is all about – taking decision(s) in the best interest of the organization. This is why I’m voting UWP this time around!!

      nonsense if Linton wanted power the party could easiy have done better than that; Eddison could have resigned and a by election would have to be called – there is no way Linton would not have won at the time and become the next parl rep for Marigot. He then gets into the house and easily would become the leader of the opposition over Spragg John by his power of speec and his understanding of the issues confronting Dominica – so les be real I firmly believe the struggle to build a all inclusive UWP party is genuine and all about a one man show.

    Those with big sins should not cast stones at those with much smaller sin. The DLP has too much going on now for supporters of the party to blindly throw stones at UWP. for cutting out Mr. Isidore. I mean can someone please tell me why the DLP cast out the likes of Mr. Graneau, Ms. Gloria, Ian Pinard (candidates who all won their seats) and Mr. Dayton Baptiste, a senator from Marigot who like Isidore did not win? Not only that, but we know the wanted to dump Regie and Ambrose, while Matthew did not wait to be cut off. DLP supporters, the right thing to do is shut,,. because our house too dirty and qwasay. Our own house, the DLP, is worse than the Marigot hospital that had to close down because of termite infestation.

    • lifeiswhatwemakeit
      May 15, 2014

      fair and balance u need to get ur story straight before u comment uselessly. Skerrit cannot remove a candidate first and foremost. There is an association in each constituencies and the desicion to keep or replace a candidate it that of the association. The executive of the association does a survey on the ground and from feedbacks received makes a decision and relate the decision with the Prime Minister. That is what has transpired in all the constituencies. But In UWP case because Isidore challenged the leadership, Linton wanted him out and did all he could to get him out. ALso too Linton wants to be a senator and his closest target was Isidore.

      I like this one, and that’s all I have to say, except; that the reason they may have cut (me cousin Gloria), is because the people she hope to represent, decided they were not going to vote for her under no circumstance. Gloria, you should have quit when I suggest you quit with your dignity; you should have resigned with your pride, right now you are rejected, and that you have to live with among the people of Wesley, of which almost half the villages are related to you.

      You have embarrassed , you should have know when to bow out gracefully!

      Last Friday, someone confirm to me that Gloria contributed nothing to the village of Wesley, and the people who complains about her the most are her personal relatives. I personal cannot understand how someone so educated has failed so miserable; in any event I was informed that she predicted a long time ago that she would be a one-time minister.

      In this case if my assumptions are correct; it would appear as if she was selected for the candidacy in the first place only to ensure the Labor Party won in Wesley, and as long as Peter Carbon was no longer interested in politics, the people demanded that Gloria represented them, it mattered not which party she was affiliated with the people were prepared to vote for her.

      The most difficult of any position in life is when one is in a position of power, and have absolutely no authority to use that power to make any decisions on their own; if she could the fifty room guess house built in Portsmouth by the Moroccans would have been built near Wesley: that is only an example when someone is used as a poppet!

      The sucker who will replace her on the Labor Party ticket, if he/she wins, there will be no difference, Wesley in particular will remain the same, okay!

      That is my premonition, that is my prediction!

Who cares if you agree with Lennox or not? This was not a Lennox Linton decision, haven’t you heard? On the other side it is about one man but on this side they follow consensus.

      So you and your little political analysis of the Mahaut constituency can go to France and learn to dance you hear. In other words even if Ronnie had won his seat the outcome would have been the same because here they uphold integrity, sincerity and trust worthiness.

    Who is next? Will it be Nicholas George? Since i have realize Mr George isnt a team player.he speaks with integrity and he don’t speak party politics. I listen to this man and all i am hearing is he wants development for colihaut bioche and dublanc. I admire this gentle man, he is community oriented and this is the only man on team Dominica that I see with blue red green orange. We the youths of colihaut constituency is call on the Dominica labour party to give us nicholas George as our representative or we will do another protest like we did when labour wanted to give us sabbie. Please hear our cry and consider us. We have had enough of being used. Ms daniel is no different to Mr toullon. Prime minister come down to colihaut and listen to our stories as young men and woman. Listen to the incidents we have had. When has representation become pleasure for assistance. Come investigate come speak to us. We are not speaking but we will give the labour party an awaken at the polls. We are coming watch the revolution. We don’t want ms Daniel if not George then give us najimi but not Daniel. Its Nicholas George or nhajimi George even better bring tenyson George down from Miami that’s the son of Nicholas George. Tenyson George has stood with us be with us made a difference in our life. So labour party make up your mindes we are like sleeping jenny just waiting to erupt in this colihaut constituency. You give us ms Daniel better known as lady there will be no voting. Ms Daniel remember you are a cry baby let us not remind you of the situations of the past and present. Your dad your brother the fire and you know the rest.so how are you going to represent us you will be worst than the last. Its Nicholas George or tenyson george or nhajimi George.

    • pffff
      May 15, 2014

      hmmmm but what heap of crap is this…..Nahjimi or Nicholas……Nahjimi is labour….Nicholas is workers…….so if they give you both what you going to do, which you going to vote?????? Labour or Workers… cause you want to give labour a wake up call right, so does it make sense to have nahjimi?????? Nahjimi is not a cry baby but where can nahjimi come in Lady feet, allu cazy……allu people eh smh.

      Then just vote Nicolas George. This is the real man for the job. “Workers are working”. If you want to be on the winning side Vote UWP. The Labour party is now confused, this is why their plans for you the youth of the land is exactly the plans of the United Workers Party. They even reach as far as using the UWP slogan “Workers are working” which mean the same in creole dialect when they say “Labour ka twavay”. Don’t be fooled by the Dominica Labour Party.

      It is true that the Colihaut, Bioche and Dublanc constituency has two good candidates to compete at the coming general election to represent the constituency. If you “observer” was a true labourite you would NOT wash your party’s dirty linen in the public. And of course, you are speaking for yourself and MAYBE your SMALL click. You are definitely NOT speaking for the majority of youth in that constituency. I would suggest that you take a closer look at the names you recommend instead of Ms. Daniel. If your observation skills are so good, you would have compared and contrasted those candidates. There’s NO WAY those two young men you proposed can be better candidates for the position of “parliamentary representative’ in the ‘August House of Assembly’ than Ms. Daniel. Their feet are exceedingly TOO SMALL to fit in her shoes. The way in which you express your ideas cannot convince anyone which side you are on. Mr. George decided to run with the UWP. He made an independent decision. Who are you, me, or the labour party to tell him what to do? You referred to some things of the past you want to bring to the fore. This also informs your readers that you are NOT labourite. So, do not hide under that name to spill out your guts and think your twisted thinking will work. What you need to do from what you have observed in the constituency is to be a mentor to your friends and others who spend the greater part of their time “hanging out’ on the roadside doing nothing and talking about things that do not help empower them so they can find a “niche’ in this new world of ours. Get them to form a group to learn and develop social, educational and occupational skills. The politicians will come and go and if you and your gang of young people do not think and make informed decisions for yourself you will continue to remain on the street corners thinking that the world other people owe you everything. From now on, ‘SPEAK FOR YOURSELF”. And remember that other people in the constituency have their views too.

    Unbelievable! You see, Lennox was disappointed that the elections date wsn’t announced on May 5th, however, his camp is not in order. This further proves the confusion that exist among the Party who is constantly trying to outdo another member. Ronnie’s giggles on the radio told me the true story. I knew he was far from being genuine. Politics is about the people and not one’s selfish desire. Mr. Isidore, I was born in Bagatelle, raised in Mahaut, therefore, I am very much familiar with this constituency. Mr. Blackmore is a very powerful voice for the people at this time, therefore, he will be re-elected. If you care about the betterment of the people, then, you can make your contribution without being a candidate of the UWP. All the best!

    I have never voted UWP, although I might very well vote them next election because I don’t put love for party before love for country. However, I must applaud the UWP for being so bold and transparent. I say bold because they know election is around the corner and to fire someone who just contested the leadership of the party is really bold. Not only that, but to see them use a press conference to address it is very commendable and I see it as a good sign. Regardless of the reason for which Mr. Isidore was fired I like the principle set here. On the flip side of things, although I have voted DLP all of my life I am very disturbed with the manner things are done. So far, we have heard of Mr. Granneau, Ms. Gloria, Matthew we know said he retiring, Soufriere candidate, the Marigot senator have all been axed and no one is saying a thing. Make it worse, we talking about candidates that all won their seat in the last election apart from Marigot. So that is very disturbing to an open minded person like me. So I like the way UWP did it especially the fact that Mr. Isidore did not win his seat.

YOUR ARE A UWP SUPPORTER. AND I KNOW YOU VERY WELL AND RONNIE KNOW YOU TOO. you are one of those who oppose Ronnie contesting the leadership and he knows all of all you who stabbing him in his back. He does not need to be among you people. Ronnie is a man of principle and all you want to tarnish his good name.

I don’t even know what Mr. Isidore face looks like far less to plot against him. All I am simply saying is, DLP treated the likes of Ian Pinard, Mr graneau, Mr, Baptist, Ms. Gloria far, far, far worse than the manner in which the UWP dealt with the Isidore problem. As a former DLP inside boy, I can tell you that Reggie got very close to being cut off it is just a matter of time before Ms. Daniel replaces Toulon in Colihault. So if your house smelling don’t accuse a person that forgot to dust their house.

      @Fair and balance, just to remind you Mr. mathew Walters, stated in public that he will not be cotesting the next election so has Mr. Graneau,candidates have already been named for these constituencies. Mr. Martin has been replaced by Mr. Pinard, the candidate for the Marigot costituency has not yet been decided on. Where is Ms Gloria going? Comparing your concerns about the anouncing of the DLP candidates with the firing by the UWP of Mr. Isidore is idiotic as both parties are still in the process of finalising their list of candidates. You as a UWP supporter should know that your party is still missing candidates :?: :?: :?: :mrgreen:

      • Fair and balance
        May 15, 2014

        @Whatabout, you really making me laugh. As an insider of the DLP, I can tell you Matthew was supposed to be axed for the 2009 election but was given another chance. When he won in 2009, I know he promised to retire but ask him why he really wanted to. Also, ask him why his son whom he really wanted to make room for was rejected. Is just because he is not a grown man in his mind he still publicly talking nonsense. As far as Mr. Graneau is concerned yes he said that but as the same time he begged for another term and even declared his vision if given another chance. I am not asking I am simply telling you what I know, Mr Pinard was kicked out and if he has any balls in him I expect to see him behave like one. Where Gloria going you asked? Ask the person that gave him the letter and Marigot you said?hahahaha

      I do not see the man an obstacle what I see is all the people he brought on board the UWP team that say, is not for the party they voting is for him. For the first time he went up he did very well and if he has to contest the seat there is a possibility he will win. Nobody that contesting the sit in mahaut proper will never win that seat because it always use to be a freedom seat and guess what? they are the ones voting Labour. so do not put all you mind on winning in mahaut proper. Ronnie disappointments always brings blessings. You are a true team player.

      Like some of you I didn’t like Lennox and is only because he was speaking truth to power and at that time I could not face the truth but truth trampled upon will rise again.

      I have come to realize that Cayman and Susan Oldee was true (ask Nocolls “Shanks” Esprit), the over payment of over 1/2 a million was true in the bin bobol (money came back to the treasury), fertilizer bobol, villas bobol and so many others that we know of. I could no longer dislike nor discredit such a patriot. Lennox Linton we love you to bits and Dominica will reward you at the polls for your Labour of love and sacrifice. Change is a must!
