YET- ANOTHER SCANDAL by Androcles
The State of Trinidad & Tobagb has finally shown up itself as the most
politically backward of the British Caribbean area. This trend has been
disee-nable for some time in its confusion as regards a Parliamentary
Opposition.
It will be recalled that for many years the state of .parliamentary
opposition in Trinidad. &.Tobago has been,' to say the least, puerile. There
.was the case of the Leader ,of the Opposition in residence in Britain for
years, paying only occasional short visits to his State. The prolifer-
ations of splinter Opposition Parties.has been another pointer. Instead
of presenting a united Opposition front, Trinidad & Tobago. has made it
easy for Dr. Williams' Government by its divisions, mutual antagonisms
and even its racially-undertoned sectoring. The. biggest joke has recently
appeared with the Opposition's not contesting several of the Parliament-
ary seats before the recent General Election and its confused and half-
hearted attempt at the others on Election Day. -Not unnaturally, the P.N.M.
Party of Dr.WiLliams emerged totally victorious. Then as an anti-climax,
twe. so-called, Opposition Parties are making much of the constitutional
requirement of,a. Leader of the Opposition. Since the P.N.M. captured
every seat, there can, of course, be no leader of'the Opposition, who,
however, is reqoiried by the Constitution to recommend for- appointment a
number of Senators to represent the Opposition. Had the Opposition Parties
been serious, they would also have made it clear that they are not int-
erested in Opposition Senators. The whole thing has been a sad mess.
The moral to be drawn is one \i aic]h our own Government should take td
heart, viz. that the so-called bigger nations of the British Caribbean
are not oracles and that we in the smaller states can think out our own
...way without benefit of them. The abiding mistake, however, whibh our Gov-
ernment makes. is to think that it alone can cope with our nation's probi
lems and that it can do wv*thout the contribution which persons.in the
Opposition Party can make to solutions. This has been most clearly and
dramatically shown since the last General Election and following upon the
Opposition Party's publication of its blue-prints for Dominica., so faith-
fully copied and adopted by the Government after its publication.
No one can 'doubt that the. Dominican Opposition can hold its head high,
after less than three years existence and in face of the many pockets of
backwardness' in Dominica so.carefully nurtured by the ruling party.
The Trinidad Opposition shrieks about the failure of the Government to
effect necessary reform before General Election. The same happened in
Dominica as regards the' main item of electoral reform demanded -- the
enfranchisement of the 18-year-olds. The fact that the Government of Dom-
inica refused to bring this about on three separate occasions was not used
as an excuse for boycotting the General Election. There is no reason why
it should have been so used in Trinidad, for in the event it was proved
in Dominica that popular votes for the two sides were almost equal. Then
continuous and unrelenting Opposition pressure under which the Government
has. operated since the General Election is the surest guarantee of the
people of Dominica that the: normal procedures of democracy can be made
to work. This is not to deny that despite the vigilance of the Opposition
the Government still does outrageous things. The closing lines of today's
piece shows this up. But it is obvious that each such outrage only ensures
the final demise of the Government. Both Montserrat and Antigua in recent
months have shown what is possible when an Opposition takes itself ser-r
iously.
Thus there is-no excuse or justification for the dismal performance of
....the Opposition of Trinidad -& Tobago and we must continue to feel that we
could function successfully without leaning on the so-called "more devel-
oped countries" of the area. if our full potential were harnessed for nat-
ional ends. If the Opposition in Trinidad & Tobago had really done its
work over the years, the great likelihood would have been that itiwould
have. added to the number of seats it held in Parliament. It would be a
Mistake, I think, to pay too much attention to the fact that only a small
percentage of the voters turned out. (concluded on p.4)

YET ANOTHER SANDAL' by And ocles (fr. p.2)
Since and just before nomination day, the Trinidad electorate had seen
the futility of taking the Opposition seriously and that the return of
the P.N.M. was a fait accompli, It therefore: did not bbthe to turn out
to wvoe. I think most West Indian communities would have reacted sitmil-
arly.
I am-appalled by the discovery in the 1971 Estimates of Expenditure
that Government provides only $15,000 for the hole year for the upkeep
of the Dominica Infirmary. In fact, the amount provided this year is less
than last "year's provision by $80. In addition to this, approved increases
on the rates of wages paid to attendants result in a much less amount
being available for the ordinary maintenance of the inmates, The. increase
in wages is- perfectly justified, but what is incomprehensible is.how can
the Government-expect the institution to carry on.at even minimal stand-
ards when in this day, hour and age it reduces in effect the amount
available.for the subsistence of the poor aged folk housed there?
There are presently about 53 residents. The amount provided for their
subsistence amounts to $1.25 per inmate per week. At the prices of 1971,
at what levell can a person subsist at $1.25 per week? Make all possible
allowance for economies of numbers, for considerations that the needs of
the old are minimal. It will still remain that it is unconscionable to
allow $I.25 per week for a human being to live on. When one considers
the waste and. improper use being made of the funds of the taxpayer, mainly
in the f>rm of political payments, it is monstrous that the Government
can: allow- this sub-human standard of subsistence to exist in one of its
institutions. Of course, if the 535 inmates were in a state to dispose of
53 wotes at a Gen eral Election, the Government of the day would never
suffer this state of affairs td exist, The Infirmary depends almost en-
tirely upon the amount provided by Government for its maintenance. Friends
and-benefactors supply little, comforts. So when the Government provide
$15,000 for 53 inmates for a whole year roughly y the amount of the Premier's
Salary) and this to include the wages of attendants, things must needs
be very difficult for these aged poor.
If we compare the treatment given in another Government institution,
we see; clearly the heartless way in which the Infirmary is treated by
Government. You would hardly believe the comparison.
The Leper Home has 4 inmates and the sum voted for.the maintenance of
these four residents (exclusive of the. salaries paid to their attendants)
is $13,280 in the 1971 Estimates, up from $9,700 in 1970. This works out
at approximately $64 per inmate per week. This compares with $1.25 per
inmate per week in the Infirmary. After) every allowance is mad0 for costly
drugs, etc., for those in the Leper Home, the difference remains inexplic-
able. Government should do better than this.
Until the Opposition took up the matter hotly, the,Government used to
pay as little -as $1 per week per person uritil this very year to the in-
digent, as extra-domiciliary relief. This was during the period when the
Government was crowing that Dominicans. had never had it so good. It is
the hope. that today's revelation will again compel the Government to do.
the right thing by the senior citizens of Dominica, though you should not
be surprised that (because. the denunciation is made in this column) Gov-
ernment will stiffen its back.
Talking. of revelation, if Dominicans want to hear the latest and most
outrageous act of the Government with the money of the taxpayers, let them
come to St.. Joseph on Sunday to. hear the President's Adt.~e-s at the
Freedom Party Convention. She will let out something which will make your
flesh creep and your hair' stand on end as she reveals what Government
has recently done with our hard-earned money, You will find it hard to
believe, yet it is true.
FREEDOM PARTY CONVENTION St. Joseph. Starts 10.30 a.m. Sunday 6th.
COME EARLY and bring, your membership card.

(We have so many letters from Readers this week that some have

the topic under "SHAME ON THE JUDGES" brought forth quite a shower of
protest. Turn to back page (12) for further correspondence.


CONGRATS TO A YOUNG CARIB
I am asking you to extend my con-
gratulation to David Allfrey for his
outstanding article in last Sat.'s
issue, calling attention n to Govern-
ment for their lack of interest in
the.God-given talents of those skil-
ful and most artistic first settlers
of this island, the Caribs. Tell
David to keep it up as in time to
come, the Caribs will have someone
of the race to voice opinion of
their needs to the State.Petew: M.,

.SHAME ON THE JUDGES
I am a student of the Grammar
School and I am shocked at .the de-
cision of the judges in Tuesday
night's contest. It was just another
Jaycee fiasco with three grown men
making the greatest mistakes of their
lives. Some of us DGS boys felt
that Grammar School did not have a
chance. Volney of SMA is the winner
..-.of the Trophy for his School, for
whe was the best, Like me, most of
my friends are Afro types ,,hair cut
and so on, but we felt ashamed and
sympathised inwardly The SMA boys
did great honour to their school.
Only the GttGeorge St.corner boys;
made noise, for the others knew that
it was an unfair decision. To the
Headboy Volney and his fellow stu-
dents I say well done. You are the
winners. To the judges I say,
shame on you. You should bow your
heads. A AIRPLAY STUDENT, DGS
(name given)
ANOTHER DGS boy calls it "a
criminal fiasco". "Let these three
judges be umpires during what remains
of of the Cricket; season and DGS
will sweep Academy with all SMA out

CONVENT GIRLS joined in passionately.

get the Trophy from SMA. But after

POLITICS AT SIXTEEN
Government promised votes to 18
year olds after last general elec-
tion and has failed to do so yet.
I remember distinctly Mr.R.O.P.
Armour saying during eve of elec-
tion, "ladies & gentlemen I had a
dream' that all eighteen year olds
will have their votes"(in. among a
number of other dreams- he said
he had. Whether, or not he had these
dreams I do not know, but the point
I want to stress iasthat the 18 yr
olds have not got the vote they were
promised and some have taken a beat-
ing. These youths are looking brward
for the vote to be announced to cheer
them up from their grim position.
Right now all the same politics
does not necessarily start at 18,
it could start at 16, but the 16 yr
old need not take part in the gen-
eral election.
We learn civics at school I admit,
and that has something to do with
politics but the teachers are so
afraid to stress their view on how
the country should be run so as. to
influence the pupils. I think in all'
schools should be posted up an Est-
imates or budget book so as when a
teacher has a civics class he or she
can read out some of the fantastic
salaries the Ministers get, and what
is the harm in telling pupils what
the Parties stand for?
I learn that the Freedom Party
allows young members to join at the
age of 16, and as soon as I am 16 I
will join so as to experience.what
is happening in Dominica politics,
that I may be of some use to my
people in the years to come. Young
Freedom Fighters could help to choose
a President and Officers and have a
say on the platform on behalf of the
youth, for example that the police
when making arrests should not brut-
alise the young, as rough treatment
will not reform them. Politics can't
be kept out of school it is there

the electorate would grasp the idea
that Government has not considered
the great Lincoln's words that 'God
loves the common people more, that's
why He made so many of them'
In this sense the postal trans-
sport should be changed, especially
the.northern mail service. At pres-
ent the mail van leaves Vieille-Case
- Portsmouth on Mondays,Wednesdays
and Saturdays. Since no other Gov-
ernment business is transacted on
Saturday, then the Portsmouth-Roseau
postal service should take place on
Friday. Why not? One wonders also
whether on the official opening o
the Coastal Road a Northern postal
change will take place. If'so, the
