UWP wonders why police have not condemned Mr Skerrit’s hateful instructions to DLP supporters. Opposition Leader, Lennox Linton, says he is cautious about attending carnival 2016 activities, following hateful statements by Prime Minister and DLP Leader Roosevelt Skerrit, at a DLP public meeting at St. Joseph on Tuesday night. In his address to party supporters, Mr Skerrit referred to opposition members as 'Traitors', and told supporters to call them “traitors” wherever they are seen.
Skerrit told DLP supporters “... When you see them on the streets, in the supermarket, at a funeral, on a plane or even in their cars, shout out to every single one of them – Traitor!” Skerrit said.
Linton, speaking on Q95's 'Talk on the Block' Wednesday afternoon, said he wonders whether he can reasonably be expected to attend any carnival activities without being harassed or even attacked by supporters of the DLP, after Mr Skerrit’s hateful instructions to them.
Meanwhile, Linton says these statements by Mr. Skerrit instigate violence and harassment against himself and all members of the UWP.
He says he is concerned that no statement has been made by law enforcement officials here, in condemnation of Mr Skerrit’s lawless behaviour.
