United Workers Party promises fiscal responsibility legislation

Opposition Leader Lennox Linton has said that a United Workers Party (UWP) government will enact fiscal responsibility legislation.

He was speaking at a Pre-Budget discussion organized by the Dominica Business Forum held at the Fort Young Hotel last week.

 “We will enact Fiscal responsibility legislation that establishes principles of responsible fiscal management and transparency,” he said.

Linton continued, “We will issue medium term expenditure framework guidelines.”

He added, “We will use sector making groups and ministerial public expenditure reviews to bring together input from ministers, parliamentarians, public officials, the private sector, civil society organizations and private citizens.”

According to the Opposition Leader, this is going to be a policy position where the UWP will, in a very disciplined way, ensure that this happens every year under his watch.

He stated further that a UWP government will engage a finance committee of parliament, the budget office and sector hearings to consider these contributions and transform them into action oriented proposals for the betterment of Dominica.

“We will engage the finance community of parliament to review and approve the estimates of revenue and expenditure,” he said.

    Indeed Elizabeth, most people in the country who enjoys a halfway decent house, worked overseas, went home with their money and build houses; other than that a minority are people involved in drugs, and in recent years the passport salesmen and women industry.
    The man Roosevelt for the nineteen almost twenty years he is prime minister of Dominica has not attracted one single investment into the country.
    Not one single foreign  industry, employing a single Dominica set up in the country since Roosevelt is prime minister.
    Every industry operating long before Roosevelt was born, left the country since Roosevelt became Prime minister.
    You cannot dispute that!Roosevelt killed the agricultural industry, he chased Harris Paints out after sixty plus years, Ross University School of Medicine after forty years of operation, Dragon Windows, Colgate Palmolive, the Tram Company, the Beer Manufacturing company.

    There was a Coral growing company which left also. Those companies employed…

    Admin: Correction: Harris Paints and Dragon Windows are still operating in Dominica.

      Well maybe; but how come the windows used to repair the Windows at the Wesley Secondary School; Petter claimed they took long because he ordered them out of Barbados from “Dragon Windows?”

      If that is the case Dragon Windows are operating in both Dominica and Barbados; so the question is are they still manufacturing windows in Dominica.

      In Regards I was told Harris Paints bought Lee Win  Paints in Antigua, and are operating there extending their operation into the Virgin islands.

      I could be wrong, but perhaps one should try and verify that!  As of right now I have not found Dragon Windows in Barbados, so if I erred blame it on a lie Petter the minister of Education told to the world!

    “How could you come from a job into sleeping at your friend’s home; how are they able to provide you with that luxury, if it is not because they have a job? “(Elizabeth Xavier).

    You need to be quiet, hence no one will have the opportunity to look deeper into you and find out you just pull things out of thin air which makes absolutely no sense. 

    I wrote this on DNO in the past ” there are people over the years who are born in Dominica” live an entire life, of seventy (70) years and over, died and never held a paying!

    In the days of agriculture, some people survived by planting bananas, and sold, that was their only source of survival.

    There are no industries in the country, the civil service will never be able to employ the nation; cleaning the streets “cutting grass” is not for a university, or college graduate.

    Most people in Dominica with a decent house made their money in England, Canada, America too.

    These UWP fools does not understand,UWP was kicked out of Government because of MASSIVE CORRUPTION,what is so hard to understand? During the time this MASSIVE CORRUPTION was taking place LENNOX LINTON was a member of the UWP.He is a member since 1988.That is why EDISON hand picked LINTON to be leader of the UWP.Remember what happened when ISIDORE,when he tried to contest the leadership?Isidore was FIRED,and accused of being PAID by Skerrit to leak UWP information.corruption,corruption that is UWP. Only the UWP and lazy,lying Viewsexpress,Ibo france is accusing Skerrit of corruption.Not even the people who is giving say he is corrupt.UWP MUST LOSE THE NEXT ELECTION.

No one buys your rubbish nonsense talk, woman. Go home and pray for Dominica.
      We look forward for Hon Lennox Linton as Prime Minister and his trusted competent professional UWP Team. A great highly experienced Team from Dominica, to take our Dominica and its people from failed Skerrit and his highly corru0ted Labour Governemnt to the UWP in coming government higher in life and comfort.

    These are music to me ears: Fiscal control, respect & account for all of people and states money….and let us see our economy grows that it is stable. There is alot of work to be done to clean up Skerrit’s mess and that of his failed corrupted incompetent Labour government.
    “United Workers Party promises fiscal responsibility legislation” Well said Linton.
    “We will enact Fiscal responsibility legislation that establishes principles of responsible fiscal management and transparency,” he said.
    Key Words: Fiscal management, Transparency,
    Respect and account for all of people and states money. (Well said)
    “We will engage the finance community of parliament to review and approve the estimates of revenue and expenditure,” he said. (Accountability for you, for all of us). I am already pleased and see a decent, accountable leader and UWP Government positioned to take Dominica to higher heights.
    Skerrit Go. You have failed us, due to immaturity and bad nefarious friends.

    The citizens and legal residents of any country live a comfortable life when the economy works for everybody. Urgent economic activity is needed in Dominica as a priority. Incentivize the small and medium businesses to reduce the present mammoth unemployment. Put the thousands of healthy, jobless people to work. Once in power, cut the lavish spending by drastically reducing the pot belly Cabinet and the frequent unnecessary overseas trips. Immediately fire the many foreign advisors and the money grabbing foreign lawyers. By implementing these simple measures, the country can save hundreds of thousands of dollars monthly. Dominica needs a paradigm shift, a new direction, a brand new attitude from what obtains at the present moment in order to thrive again. Ensure to make corruption a thing of the past as corruption in government hurts everyone.

Do you know how much Skerrit’s overseas escapades cost the Dominican government annually? Do you care to know? Where is the transparency? This is corruption and the present occupant of the Prime Minister’s Office is hemorrhaging the country’s finances. Time for transparency! Time for accountability!

    I’m here standing on neutral ground. But where does linton stand with regards to “the marijuana legalization” issue? Dominica’s stance on “immigration” ? Abortion rights? LGBT community? Aren’t these the “mature” topics both sides should be discussing? I’m seeing little discussion happening. At least I think linton wants to debate. I just don’t think Skerrit is quite interested in debating. Hmm.

      Skerrit is not mature enough, nor has he presented himself as this intellectual to debate and analyse matters of state and the Global world. Hon Linton is a natural debater, he is well read, well researched and has many years in the Broadcasting and communication field. Hon. Linton has worked and resided within the \Caribbean, and he therefore has a wealth of knowledge within him to take on anyone on matters of the state. Where on earth is Skerrit on such matters? I hope that he, Skerrit will accommodate such debates and let us hear him with Hon Linton. Skerrit should be out of Government years now. He has failed us and not sufficiently mature or academic to hold such position. He has and still is dependent on too many political scouts to guide him. It is pretty obvious. We up here on the 5th Floor know Skerrit well. He`s immature, childish, and has no foresight to plot the development of Dominica. He is spontaneous and will just give out a galvanise, so people feel nice.

    Transparency, accountability, and fiscal responsibility should be the best practices of an honest administration. The absence of these good governing characteristics is indicative of the presence of corruption at the highest echelon that trickles down to the lower level management.

    I lost my job a few years ago, before Hurricane Maria. Haven’t been able to get another job since. No money to start a small business. So. I’ve been surviving at the mercy of my friends. Sleeping at this friend’s home for a couple months then by another one. I used to feel sorry for myself, wondering what is wrong with me. Why can’t I have a job too. I now understand it is the current DLP government’s mismanagement of our economy that is to blame. It makes sense beacuse I’ve never struggled for work like this before this administration made their changes. All I have now is my ‘X’ and I will use it to vote them out!

          @wicked, that is the problem with us, Dominicans, no one wants to do the lowly jobs; we want classy jobs which we are not qualified to do.

          Most of you are not able to write a simple sentence without poor grammar and spelling, far more to have a deeper qualification for high employment

          Let me tell you; I live in Toronto, Canada, and that city is one of the cleanest cities in North America, why is that so?

          It is because there are people who have no choice but to accept the janitorial works to clean the washrooms, the food court surfaces, to pick up all garbage along the streets and yes, to cut the grass.

          People who walk their dogs must walk with gloves and garbage bags to pick up the dod’s excrement if that happens.

          Dominica needs cleanliness to glorify its natural beauty, it attracts visitors, there are hotels, beaches, etc all over the World. Clean and quiet is good for the mind.

            Elizabeth, how many places in North America have you visited?

            Do you know  North America only comprised of Canada, America, and Mexico; of which you have never set foot in neither the United States, nor Mexico, how can you say Toronto is the cleanest in North America?

            You are not in any position to make such claims: I been to Canada many times, to get there from Los Angeles, I have to drive a few thousands of miles which takes me across America, I went to Mexico; however, I will not make comparisons, because it all depends on where you are visiting.

      What kind of work did you do at your previous job: why were you not able to find another job like it–was it because of your incompetence that you lost that job?

      There is a long story behind losing a job, and that story could be a sorry one for you; what do you want the government to do, employ you at one of their offices?

      Are you not ashamed mention sleeping at your friends home, because you do not have a job?

      I also would not wait until the UWP is in Power to get another job; you might end up sleeping at your friends’ house for eternity. Pray that they can tolerate you for that long.

Our nature island is ailing and if I knew you would share the statistics with you, hoping that you are sufficiently literate and open-minded enough to comprehend, analyse and see the bigger picture. But you are so tuned to this failed immature Skerrit, you don`t read, you don`t analyse, all your silly information comes from failed Skerrit, his ridiculous scouts, his failed corrupt Labour government and his misfits circle of friends who know nothing of where he is: that is being silly, digging deeper in the abys pit of corruption and failure and he must Go, because Skerrit has failed us and our Dominica big time. Wake, begin to open your mind to trusted Hon Lennox Linton and His professional UWP Team.

      @voting UWP. This is your comment. (No money to start my small business). The AID Bank is still in operation. There is money in there to start your business. Stop sounding like a donkey. That is the problem with you Dominicans. Nothing Lennox said is new. You can get somebody to show you where the AiD bank is located in roseau.

Our people are nor suffering. I do not know where you are to pen this Bull shit, but you have no heart and no guts to come
      up and see the truth, the poverty of our Domininca under failed Skerrit. You have no heart, no guts to come up and see the truth how our Dominica has deteriorated under this failed immature, incompetent political clown called Skerrit. We as civil servants at the Financial Centre, know and hear of the on going Bobol of Dominica`s rising poverty and unemployment. Skerrit is a failure, under his tenure has killed out all our marketing, so no money/revenue comes in. Skerrit sells our passports we, dont see the money making a difference to our poor people an families. Skerrit is childish and perhaps plays marble hole. He is immature, a faikure and distracted with fake people surrounding him.

    Your manner of speech seems to be directed to people who already support you. Please change your style so that the average DLP supporter will better understand and appreciate what you are saying.

Corrupted, poverty, no jobs so go after your failed incompetent Skerrit who has killed our produce, agriculture and business of our hard working farmers. As far I see, you all are only on the move to protect Skerrit. We know he is a failure and exceedingly incompetent as Prime Minister, but yet rather than looking at the decrease in employment and the increase in poverty and no jobs, you all still wave that dirty Red Flag to this failed incompetent Skerrit. Go open your eyes and look around Dominica and tell me what you see.
        This man managed the Bin Bobol and Fertilizer Bobol. The distinguished Hon Lennox Linton exposed their thievery & BoBOL of states funds. They came out and say Linton is a liar. When Linton exposed evidence they cry and say it was a “Mistake”. At that time a siting Ministers brother in Pennsylvania was the contact and these guys abused states funds.

    • July 16, 2019

      @Zandoli, I was about to write about Lennox’s manner of presenting himself and his party pertaining to his vocabulary and sentence composition. He is not saying anything that is new, he is simply making it complicated by using those classy terms which is not necessary. For example:

      “We will enact Fiscal responsibility legislation that establishes principles of responsible fiscal management and transparency,” he said

      In the first place, there is nothing new about that statement above, what organization in the World does not maintain a “fiscal program” for its work? That statement is all dressed up with a loud sound of pomposity–it is so foolish!

All we hearing of is thousands missing and we seeing chairman, clerk and councilors with SUV without taking loans. Boy you talk about no transparency from top to bottom? On another note I would like the PM, Roselyn Paul, Ian Douglas and Reggie to tell us if monies didappeared from the Paix Bouche village council office and if so how much? They also need to tell us if the chairman was replaced, resigned or fired by governmet ministers and if so WHY???

    DNO I challenge you and any local media to take a drive to the villages especially in Skerrits own constituency and ask about who got new house, cash, building materials and ask for those that got nothing though they suffered more from Maria. Skerrit in particular should have a lot of questions to answer before God because no doubt God put him in a position to build the new Dominica we all sang about in primary school but he uzed the money to destroy Dominica. Skerrit needs to go for there to be any hope for a better Dominica or even for saving Dominica

    Right now we are left with two options : 1. Vote Skerrit and Da finish 2. Vote UWP to save DA. To me a laborite, Maria was an eye opener. We were severely damaged but we got enough money to builf a brand new DA. Unfortunately PM mismanaged the recovery and instead of building a resilient nation he used the money for political mileage and victimized those that did not vote for him and even those that voted for him but were not loud. For example, I know of a boyfriend and girlfriend that staying in different villages and because they are both loud laborites they both got cash, got new new roof followed by a new house while uwp some suporters lost everything and got nothing except 17 posts. I also know of situations where a couple with a mortgage lost their roof and got cash, got materials for a new roof and instead of heping them settle their mortgage with their bank, governmet helped them to forsake their mortgage and built them a brand new 3 /2 house because they are loud laborites

    Consultations with key stakeholders are extremely important before any national budget is debated and passed in parliament. The present tenant in the Prime Minister’s Office only talks to himself. No wonder the economy is in total shambles. There are hardly any good paying, sustainable jobs on island. The only high paying sustainable jobs are the many advisors to the PM. Unfortunately, these are reserved mostly for foreigners especially Bajans. One admirable attribute about Mr. Linton on the campaign trail, he speaks of policies and strategies , not people’s personal affairs. He doesn’t curse like a drunkard. The man offers servant leadership not dictatorship. All indicators point to a people oriented, consultative, visionary, productive, effective, efficient , empathetic Linton led UWP government at the next polls.

      My point of view is that he is full of sound and fury signifying nothing. What does he mean by he will do things when he gets in. He IS a member of Parliament/Legislature where he can showcase what he can DO. He does not know how to propose an inclusion in the Budget or an amendment to an act of Parliament. He does not understand the correlation between the Constitution and Acts of Parliament (the law).
      Whenever he comes out with his nonsensical bombastic verbosity he demonstrate unfitness for political or government leadership.
