If a politiops does not keep his pre-
mises, he aI in disgrace. When the
Committee for National Salvation of-
.fered Oliver (Perry) Seraphine the job
of Prime Minister, it was on the prom-
ised understanding that within six
months there would be a general elect-
ion. Quote: "To ensure the holding of
free an-d air general elections within
six months of assuming office."
The Ag.President has announced the
dissolution of Parliament ~B/ff t5.
This will be already overdue. There
should be, and as the opposition part-
"es in Dominica agree, there MIST be,
a General election in January.
The Prime Minister has gone off to
banking discussions, in Barbados. He
has left in charge the most disliked
Minister of all as Dep.P.M.: Mr.
Eustace Francis. Further, as we have
stated in our LATE NEWS (p.6.) he has
*usted Charles Savarin from food con-
trol replacing him with proposed
"Democratic" Labour Party candidate
Felix Thomas. All this is some sort
of scandal. It will cause a lot of
noise. We are dead against it.
Legal Adviser Michael Bradley is
here to advise on legislation, includ-
ing the protection of farmers against
terrorists, and the reorganisation of
the Registry Office.

Horror and rage struck the British
nation on Thursday when Mrs. Thatcher,
Prime Minister, revealed in the House
of Commons that (Sir) Anthony Blunt
a security man at. the Poreign Office
for years and also an adviser on art
to Her Majesty the Queen, was a man
who collaborated with Burgess and
Maclean and later with Philby, all
British-agents of the Soviet Union.
Worse, the populace was enraged to
learn that Blunt (br Blount) had
confessed to his crimes in 1965 but
had been granted immunity. He has
now.slipped out rf Britain. The
facts were revealed in a book by an
American, before the British P.M.
gave out the truth. there are others
involved. Blunt' knighthood withdrawn.

Those withdrawals,tof Which many (in-
cluding ourselves) took exception,
were withdrawn this weec. However,
another Bill restricting Immigration
(fiances of girls not born in Britain
cannot have their husbands-to-be join
them far marriage) is also causing a
great deal of indignation.
