Thomson Fontaine no longer a senator says Skerrit

PM Skerrit making his point during the interview

Dr. Thomson Fontaine of the United Workers Party (UWP), is no longer a senator in the Dominica parliament.

Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, made that disclosure on Tuesday evening during a special interview in which he was questioned on the government’s performance in 2018.

“Mr. Thomson Fontaine, as we speak, is no longer a senator in Dominica because he missed three consecutive sittings without the expressed authority of the Speaker,” Skerrit revealed.

Dr. Fontaine was appointed senator in the parliamentary opposition, led by UWP leader, Lennox Linton, after the last general election in 2014.

“To allow a senator to miss three sittings of parliament to the point where the Speaker would write to the President informing the president that a senator has missed three sittings and therefore, he has vacated his seat in the parliament is telling on a leader,” Skerrit explained, in reference to action which he indicated has been taken by Speaker of the House, Alix Boyd-Knights. “I can tell the country that this would never happen to me as prime minister with an elected member of parliament, far more, for a senator.”

JMEC Senior Economic Advisor, Dr. Thomson Fontaine (middle) makes a point during a meeting in South Sudan. With him are JMEC Chief of Staff Ambassador Berhanu Kebede and Deputy Chief of Staff (Strategy), Ambassador Mahen Kundasamy

Dr. Fontaine, a former IMF economist, was in 2017, appointed Senior Economic and International Policy Adviser on the Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission, overseeing implementation of Agreement on Resolution of Conflict in South Sudanthe newest country in the world.

Since taking up that position, Dr. Fontaine, has missed a number of sittings of parliament, including the 2018-2019 budget debate.

Skerrit attributed this development to what he described as “the weakness” of the United Workers Party (UWP) leadership for “not taking decisive action and correcting” the situation.

“And it is also a disrespect to the constitution of our country that you would have a senator whose business it is to perform his duties in the parliament to be working outside of Dominica, not available to the parliament, not even during the budget debate which is the most important item on the calendar of the parliament of our country,” the prime minister complained.

Dominica News Online (DNO) will attempt to get reaction from Dr. Fontaine and Leader of the Opposition, Lennox Linton.

    What is your point Double (Dr) PhD? if the real Dr PhD Thomson Fountain is no longer a senator all that the Opposition has to do is appoint someone else “Simple” don’t spit up in the air Dr it will fall back in your face; can you give a morale explanation as to the continued paying of a minister’s salary to one of your own who is definitely sick and clearly unable to perform his Parliamentary functions; for crying out loud where is your own morale and leadership standing in this matter to be pointing your finger at other persons who have stood head and shoulder above you on any issue of development.

    The government of Dominica should warrant both Lizards ,Thomson Fontaine, and Lennox Linton to pay back the money he took from the Dominica tax payers because Linton his self knew all about the sting before hand and I recommend Linton should go to jail for conspiracy.

      Woof…woof….woof, go bite your dogs and get contaminated and free up yourself. The more you talk of Hon Linton and Hon Fontaine, the more ou have raised them up to a higher level of importance.
      When y9ou talk of Skerrit, he is seen in the abyss and a failure in politics and in government as a Prime Minister.
      Woof Woof, go get something good to do for our ailing , poverty country and kick Skerrit out, while you are it. Thanks much.

    The issue here is the inept leadership of the UWP. When Mr. Linton introduced his party’s nominated members who would go on to serve as senators in the parliament, he disclosed that he he would use a rotation system to provide other unsuccessful candidates with the opportunity to serve in the parliament! He needs to explain why he did not keep to his word, and why he allowed Dr Fontaine to continue to benefit from a parliamentarian’s salary when he was engaged in South Sudan. Was it because he has no confidence in the ability of other party members to contribute meaningfully to debate in parliament ? Or is the former Treasurer of the DAAS the one “ calling the shots”?

    Well, Roosevelt you should be a happy man now Fountain might have simply get tired of you and decided to leave you to sink and destroy Dominica, along with your corruption in the process.

    He is the same Fountain you brought people into Dominica to violate the law, by illegally moving a court date forward in absence of the Thomson Fountain the defender. Knowing well that the man is out of the island; as a result your ……. had the court issued an illegal arrest warrant for Fountain!

    Take a look at the picture, you you will you may notice people of intelligence, as smart as Fountain sits in silent listening to this great Dominica intellectual: One who earned his Ph. D. used it to become a university and college professor; worked for the world bank!

    Now this.

    You are of a lessor intelligence to the great Thomson Fountain, who can make a living outside of politics! To you he is Dr. Professor Fountain!

    Not Dr. Punjab/Duquesne Nothing!

      Dr Fontaine never worked for the World Bank.
      Dr Fontaine’s legal representative was in court together with the other accused and could not account for his absence; that’s the reason a bench warrant was issued.

      • Francisco Etienne-Dods Telemaque
        January 10, 2019

        Warrington if Fountain did not work for the World Bank can you disclosed which International Monetary organization he worked for?

        May I have erred; which I doubt so correct  me if you can!

        As far as I know it is because of his experience  in working for that organization why the the British government selected and sort him out to work in his present capacity! You can try to lie and take him down, but I stand firm; there is another such organization: nevertheless, I stand firm he worked for the World Bank!

        Soon you all will say he was never an economist professor in a university here in the United States. I am sure he taught Dr. Maureen Paul, and another Dominican who’s name evades me; nevertheless, they both earned the Ph. D.

        When you decide to contradict  ” The Francisco Etienne-Dods Telemaque” you had better have something true and significant in order to debunk my truth!

      • Francisco Etienne-Dods Telemaque
        January 10, 2019

        Warrington if you argue that the fixed date on the docket to appear in court at a certain time was not moved to an earlier date; when they know fully well Fountain is in Africa fulling his commitments; then I must suggest something is wrong!

        What is wrong is that in Dominica evilness and lies are accepted, and takes precedence over the truth, what I wrote concerning the warrant is common knowledge in Dominica; in the streets, and in high places! Don’t try to convince anybody that the counsel   for the defendant did not know where his client was and  is this present day unless he no longer represents Fountain.

        I doubt there is anybody in Dominica who follows Dominica politics who do not know the whereabouts of Fountain!

        But what does it matter, how much is a Senators monthly pay in Dominica, seven hundred dollars a thousand dollars per month?

        How much do you believe is making now per month? Roosevelt will add Thomson few dollars to his own!

    Thanks to the Catholic Church in Dominica through its leader the Bishop for sending a subtle message to Skerritt to remind him that there is such a thing as the constitution and it must be obeyed. Skerritt has subjugated the authority of the constitution for 13 or more years but finally, the Pope has put him in a box where he has to now be guided by the law of the land enshrined in the constitution. He and his surrogates and enablers better take note because the bishop can no longer remain silent anymore. Let’s have good governance overall by everyone. Skerritt on many occasions cried about too much politics in Dominica but he resorts to childish nitpicking in this regard. With his government’s overall majority in parliament, the presence of Dr. Fountain wasn’t going to change the balance of power and deny his party what it wanted to do. However, with elections being close, this will end with his party on the other side. I trust the Dominican people to remove labour.

    It is clear to me that a lot of you people here have no principle and are unwilling to call out the party you support when they are in the wrong.

    I am not a DLP supporter because I think they could have done a lot better for the country and I believe many of the ministers have enriched themselves at the expense of the country. Furthermore I think 15 years is well past the due date for that government.

    I do not believe Lennox Linton is the best person to lead the UWP. He has not shown me that he has what it takes to be a good leader. Everything considered, I would be willing to take a chance on them given the choice between UWP and DLP.

    Having said all of the above, if I see UWP doing wrong, I will voice my opinion despite the fact that I would vote for them. What I see here are people who, once they support a party refuse to point out the obvious wrongs that they do. How are you are better than the Skerrit worshipers?

    To me the PM had nothing to say about Thomas Fontaine if he does not make mention of Stephenson. Actually Ivor is being paid as a Parliamentary Secretary in the Health Ministry…or Environment. Normally if public officers are sick for more than a month no pay …then board off. So why does that not apply

  17. It's my damn business
    January 9, 2019

    I see a writing on the wall that has me wondering. In 2000 DFP and DLP came together and removed a working government. Since their evil plot, PM Roosevelt Douglas did not even make a year in office and he was buried. His successor Piere Charles couldn’t even finish the term in office before he too was buried. Osborn Riviere. That made way for the very evil Skerrit that brought curse upon curse on Dominica. Under their evil reign we both Savarin and Timothy were severely attacked with their Heath, while Reggie, Ian, the Colihault lady and Stephenson were flown out and missed significant time in office. Stephenson has been out for over a year and might never return. He should have told Skerrit that God said “thou shalt not steal”. I would have to write a book to address the evils of Skerrit, Blackmore, McIntyre and Petter St. Jeanne because they all deserve Hell and still more. In fact only in Dominica they would not be questioned and be sent to a new dark address.

      Skerrit is in no position to point fingers at people. As he points one finger, there are four (4) dirty fingers pointing back at him. It tells us as a people suffering that this man is the issue and the reason why our Domininca is so corrupt, in dep poverty, backward, suffering from lack of goods to sell overseas to return with foreign funds. Our resources are being abused, diminished by this failed PM Clown called Skerrit and he has 18 useless cabine so called ministers hoping and jumping when Skerrit calls. Skerrit you will never be in the shoes of Dr. Fontaine or even Hon Linton or any other member of the UWP Professional Team. You are a failure and you are way behind and the more you talk nonsense the more you are despised for your poor governance and useless behaviour.

    I am perplex by the discussions we waste so much energy on. Here’s my take on leadership. A great leader posses such qualities: business and political acumen, ingenuity, transparency, government decorum, patriotism, being compassionate, benevolent and most of all honesty. These are just a few words which describe a great leader. Be the Judge and see where belies the truth. If the constitution or parliamentary rules does not allow a senator or parliamentarian to be absent for 3 consecutive sitting of the House then it is the responsibility of the Speaker to take the necessary measures and the PM should not get involve. The problem with this PM is his petulant behavior when it comes to local politics. He takes advantage of such situation because he believes in his heart that we Dominicans will accept anything from him. Well, after 18 years I urge everyone to continue to love the PM, but ask yourself if he has the qualities of a great leader and should he remain in office. Be honest

    Be this as it may, this would not stop Dr. Fontaine being nominated as a prospective parliamentary candidate in the next general election.
    On the subject of Ross University I was intrigued to learn from the P.M. that his government now have possession of the university’s property in Dominica. This, of course, is not the same as ownership. This poses the question whether our government unilaterally took possession without proper transfer of titles, either freehold or leasehold and the intimation that they plan to sue Ross is relevant to this.

    Mr. Skerrit expertly beats up on members of the opposition. He seems most motivated and energetic when berating and leveling scurrilous accusations and attacks against the UWP. All his focus is geared towards totally obliterating any form of opposition to give him a clear path to remain at the apex of government. The enormous evidence of incompetence by the Skerrit-led DLP regime should totally disqualify these ruling elitists from retaining power. Crime, vagrancy, mendicancy, illnesses, joblessness, political division, living standards, politicization of the public service, corruption, poverty, mental problems, all have exacerbated under the misguided stewardship of Roosevelt Skerrit and the de facto leader of the DLP, potty-mouthed Tony Astaphan.

  33. January 9, 2019

    It’s so sad that the elected members of the United Workers Party, their Senators and outspoken supporters have wasted the last four years focusing on removing one man from power- a strategy that has failed them for more than a decade-instead of strategizing on how to win the hearts and minds of non- supporters and undecided voters for the next election cycle. Roosevelt Skerrit and the DLP have outsmarted them once again and will be laughing their way into the next election. Sad but true!

        I would be happy to be able to express myself like patriot Linton Dominica’s next PM.This man is the quintessential Dominican!!! I admire him!!! Stop fulminating at my bloggs. We have an ill equipped hospital at PMH, so I don’t want you to die.You think Skerrit will fly you to Martinique? You must disabuse yourself of that idea. I am just a Dominican hankering for change ,because DLP under Skerrit’s rule has failed the country.. It’s a country teetering on the brink of collapse in a myriad of ways!
        I have always said Skerrit was not PM material,and I am vindicated.

    So Mr skerrit, who has honorary doctorates and demands that he be called a doctor chooses to call someone who has earned his doctorate a MR? Moreso, someone everyone else addresses as Dr?

    Anyway…trivial.

    I hope the same treatment has been afforded to Mr Ibor Stephenson. He is from the same constituency, won the seat and has not been to parliament for a lot more than the stipulated 3 seatings. I trust that all this time he haa not been receiving a salary.

    The issue of Dr Fontaine is not a reflection on leadership. Sad to see that Skerrit’s year in review was another atempt at bashing the opposition. A group he claims is not a treat, of no significance, pointless, unemployed loiters etc. Imagine of they were the opposite…..

    The PM has 2 honorary Doctorates…..is wealthy

      LOL…LOL…LOL…Skerrit has to honorary Ductorate,,,is wealthy… weathy in what position, bool, corruption, then we agree with you . If it is intellectual you are referring too and on matters of soci-economic development then, please show me and us, or prove that Skerrit is an intellectual with some level of discipline to education, socio-economic development, or he is ductored in corruption and poor governance and ignorant and limited to what it takes to development a poor island like Domininca. Show us, tell us what has Skerrit done for Domininca. Look nor=w he has failed so much, no jobs, people are again being abused to come to the Financial Centre to pick up handouts states money rather than invest it. You see how Skerrit is not an intellectual, he is a fanfare man , who likes to be seen taking BS and dresses nice. We have had enough. Enough, Skerrit go about your damn business. I know this man, we see him talks nonsense limited intellectual BS daily at Financial Centre. Go Go

    Even though DR THOMPSON FONTAINE walk through the valley of death (hate, victimisation, retribution, etc/etc), I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
    Scripture: Psalm 23:4

    To the living GODS of Dominican government… I say:

    You have done more evil than all who live before you. You have made for yourself other GODS, idols made of metal; you have aroused my anger and turned your back on me.
    Scripture: 1 Kings 14:9

    lol..Skerrit think Fontaine as sorry as he is..YOU as PM sets budget date and still misses budget debate several times..”telling on a leader”
    Skerrit’s bigest worries are Fontaine and Linton, because they have opened many Dominicans eyes..Go Win an election Skerrit that’s what you do..however as PM your performance has been dismal at best.

    The state of Dominica after almost 20 years is an embarassment..For losing Ross alone, if u had integrity you should resign.
