Whether or not she was surrounded by
the British Army, Her Majesty showed
courage in visiting Northern Ir@albad
this week, and getting away. unscathed.
The British Press was full of'opinions
on the subject. We just waited.
The Queen will be visiting Barba-
dos at the end of October, will read
the Thrune Speech in their House of
Assembly, and lunch with Prime Mini-
ster and Mrs. Adams at Sam Lord's
Castle. Whether or not she takes off
in a Concorde is not so far decided.

You readers will be able to read
about the budget on pages 3-).. We
would only add that the debate was
not so much a support of the budget
(from the Government side) as an ex-
cuse to attack persons virulently;
even those sitting in the audience;
and even the editor of the Star,who
could not get up and answer back,
which she is fully'capable of doing.

It is amazing to find that after 2- hours of talk and
58 pages of words, that the debate on the budget was in fast
not on the budget except by Opposition members and one Minister.
The Opposition members criticised certain parts of that
budget address and they welcomed certain parts and they point-
ed out where improvements or better provisions could be made.
But at no time except in the person of the Minister for Home
Affairs, did the (overnment members apply themselves to the
task that was before them.
The Minister for Home Affairs took the opportunity, quite
rightly, to explain the shortcomings of his Ministry and in-
dicated the areas in which he sought to find remedies for
these shortcomings. He explained how within a restricted
budget he intended to better the services that the departments
under his ministry were offering.
Significantly while he was speaking perhaps rather slowly
but deliberately and with effect, a note was passed to him
which he did not appear to pay much attention to and the
note was discovered afterwards to have stated "You are on
the air so talk politics". This was the advice given to
him by another front bench member! The Minister appears
to have ignored this advice.
But this solves the puzzle of the very bad behaviour
on the part of members on the Government side. Even the
member for Wesley, Calibishie and Woodford Hill, who because
of his religious fervour, would have been considered above
that conduct has proved time and time again that he is only
interested in speaking half truths and twisting the truth.
He certain. never makes any contribution which can be remembered.
The Minister of Communications and Works apparently felt
very guilty and spent the whole of his address explaining
away his accidents in public vehicles, the use of boats in
export and import trade and the many trips abroad. The various
millions of dollars he referred to as having been received
in Dominica as a result of these numerous trips, appear to
have passed out of Dominica again without leaving any real
mark or indent.
The other members on the Government benches apparently
were making their Annual Convention speeches of praise for
their leadership.
But empty as they made the debate it was the behaviour
of the Premier which lowered it to a standard below human.
This much lauded Premier, whom to his members seems a "Messiah
come to earth" behaved in such a manner that even his followers
must have been ashamed. He openly stated that he was not
going to speak on the budget but that he was going to find
some sort of abuse and some sort of mepuis to use against
each member of the Opposition. At the beginning of the session
he had called on a minute's silence in memory of W.S. Stevens
and in his speech he found it necessary to malign the dead
man's memory with a fabrication so patent that not even he
could make people believe that there was any truth in it.
The hypocrisy of this premier is greater than he had demon-
strated in the past.
Egged on by this behaviour the Minister of Finance dropped
his mantle of decorum under which he had delivered the Budget
Address and sank to an all time low. To listeners over the
radio hearing the shouting the conduct of those two was bad
enough but to have been present and to see their actions would
have really shocked anybody in Dominica. When the T.V. station,
which appears to have already become obsolete, is able to be

used for televising the proceedings in the House of Assembly,
the public will really be shocked at the behaviour of their
leaders on the Government benches.
But what of the contents of the budget? Will the citizen
to better off on its implementation? It appears not. Some
measure of relief has been attempted for persons who pay income
tax. But is is significant to note that it is the persons
in the higher income brackets who can afford to pay tax who
get the greatest relief.
The attempt to place a tax on person purchasing foreign
exchange will yield revenue (much required) to the Treasury.
But it is obliged to raise the cost of living. Because
much of our food comes from abroad and it will mean that every
dollar we spend outside of Dominica (except St. Kitts, Antigua,
St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Grenada and Montserrat) will have
to bear the added exchange control tax. This increase muet
be passed on to the consumer who as usual is the person to
pay, and pay, and pay every time a tax is levied.
The additional 5% deposit to be paid by Banks will have
to be watched to see what results it may bring. It could
cause the closure of the Banks, or it could force the Banks
to incorporate locally. In Jamaica a short time after Barclays
incorporated locally, it is being taken over by Government.
In Trinidad incorporation has been successful because the
private sector has had the money to buy shares. Who in
Dominica has money to buy shares in a Bank, the future of
which you are not certain about because of Government's attitude'
S" And talking of Government's attitude, it is significant
to follow some of the statements made by the Premier and
Minister of Finance during their very poor and vulgar contri-
butions to the debate. The Minister of Finance instead of
explaining away the points made by the Leader of the Opposition
regarding the increase in the cost of living, the benefit
to the larger income earner, spent his time (and that was
two hours) trying to tell the nation that the Leader of the
Opposition had tried to cheat the Government of thousands of
dollars by presenting two bills for two different hotels
for the same night. But in his nasty underhand way he could
not name the night in question. The Public will never believe
him because they know how much he dislikes the Leader of
the Opposition and if he had ever found such a fraud he would
have handed it to the police immediately so that she could
be arrested.
What both ministers should have explained to the public
is the manner in which they spent the. $97,000 for six of them
for a shorter period of time as against the $13,0&0 by the
Opposition members for three of them for a longer period.
It i-s for that amount they must account!
Let the Premier account too for the fast that although
he raised his pay last year that-he again raised his pay this
year to $18,000.00. But at no time during the debate was
that additional salary for the Premier mentioned. At no time
did the Premier explain to his taxpayers that he had decided
that he deserved a raise in pay, and that he had taken it.
Take it P.J.! Take itl It is all yours!
But it is obvious after that shameful performance that the
Ministers of Government are out to ruin the country. The
Premier said with great emphasis that when the Opposition
become the Government of the island their plans will not succeed
because he intended to soe to it that they were all frustrated.
There speaks the little man who so loves Dominica!
It is obvious therefore that the Budget debate, from
the Government's point of view, is seen as an occasion for
playing politics and not for planning for the future of our
island home.
