NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS .... by JOHM SPECTOR
I am keeping John Spector's Resolution to myself, but here are some
Very Good Resolutions which I have especially drawn up for Government
Ministers and Labour Party Hacks which, if carried out and adhered to,
could well put Dominica on its feet again. Of course the Leblanc lot
may reject them and in that case I am sure that knowledgeable adminis-
trative thinkers of the Freedom Party will be pleased to step in and
run the State oii a sensible basis, thus reducing the cost of living,
encouraging investment, increasing the revenue from tourism and putting
money in the pockets of the Farmers (to whom John Spector wishes a hard-
working but prosperous New Year.) In keeping with correct Parliamentary
Practice, I shall word these Resolutions in the usual manner. All Leblanc
Followers are invited to recite one resolution every day in front of a
mirror as they take their morniing-after-the-night-before aspirins (those
who have not looked in a mirror recently may get a salutary shock at
'seeing themselves as others see them'). Come along then repeat after
me: 1) WHEREAS less than half of the voters in Dominica have any faith
in the Leblanc Party, and Government Members of the House of Assembly
only got and hold their seats due to bemusing of the ignorant with
'bonuses' handed out before the election and other devices which use
the taxpayers' money;
I HEREBY RESOLVE to try and think for myself, and take into account
the views of the Opposition, the sane and the experienced,
2) WHEREAS my Party has consistently warned Civil Servants of non-
advancement unless they conform to the Leblanc line and are notto be
, seen talking to Freedom Party members, and WHEREAS such an attitude
has dulled the wits and the initiative of the Civil Servants;
I HEREBY RESOLVE to inform all Civil Servants with whom I work
that I welcome new ideas, criticism of my dim Ldeas and argument
(even if it is against the Leblanc Party Line;
*3) WHEREAS I have done little or no work for the State for ......
years/ months/ days (insert number, delete as necessary), and WHEREAS
I have only the education and brains of a mouse/cockroach/ or centi-
pedae (delete as necessary);
I HEREBY RESOLVE to take only such part of my salary to which, in
justice, I am entitled 3/4, 1/2, 1/4, 1/10, none (delete as necessary)
... (this resolution mainly for Ministers);
4) WHEREAS I have been appointed an unofficial member of a Statutory
Board because I have lost my job and/or status due to various causes
such as ... ..o.... ..*. (kindly enumerate) and WHEREAS I do little
and know little about the matters my Board considers;
I HEREBY RESOLVE to resign/refuse the 'emolument'/ charge only
true travel expenses and will recommend that a member of the Opposition
or some independent-minded individual be invited to take my place;
5) WHEREAS I have been informed (with chapter aad verse) that the
rate of pilferage on the Roseau Jetty and Customs House exceeds that
of any'other Commonwealth Caribbean Country in percentage and WHEREAS
said pilferage is blatant and is increasing the Cost of Living greatly,
I HEREBY RESOLVE either to take steps to put a stop to it BEFORE the
Deepwater Harbour is completed with its 'maximum security' OR RESIGN
(this resolution for RESPONSIBLE MINISTER);
6) WHEREAS the wealth of any country depends on the effective Working
hours of its adult citizens, and WH IEREAS an under-developed country such
as Dominica cannot afford even as many holidays as TECHiNOLOGICALLY AD-
VANOGB COUNTRIES, and WHEREAS we understand that Dominica has more hol-
idays each year than any other Commnonwealth country,
WE HEREBY RESOLVE to cut down on the number of holidays in the same
way St. Vincent has done, and generally to alert the citizens of the
State that only through hard work and more effective work can we main-
tain, let alone raise, the living standard of Dominica.
This Resolution for the WHOLE CABINET (and forget possible loss of
votes) ... for the good of the whole country.

Page Four THE S T
OBSERVATIONS IiI THE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY
(conclusion) by RUPERT SORHAINDO
In the last session, the Premier,
(Mr. E.O. Leblanc) returning to the
House after several consecutive ab-
sences., made a valiant effort to
soften the impact of opposition crit-
icism. in the face of what must have
been (even for the Premier) .a poor
performance by HIS Ministers.
His first few remarks hinted very
strongly at the prospect of new and-
increased taxes during the next fis-
cal year. He continued by giving him-
self credit for some of the excell-
ent planning actually done by the
HANDFUL of competent Civil Servants
in the Service of the Dominican
people. He even went as far as to
imply that he might have been the
one responsible for the personal
achievements of such distinguished
.Dominicans as Dr. Yankey (now of the
.World Bank) and Mr. Vivian Grell of
WINBAN.
Mr. Leblanc continued on the fam-
iliar tune of the Growth of the Bud-
'get since 1961,"when he took over", ,
pointing out that in- 1961 the bud-
get was $4.5 million, while in 1971
it was $25 million. He was quick to
add that $14 million of that figure
was ,derived from revenue (mostly from
the dying banana industry??). He
did not say, however, that along
with an increased tbudet came a, 60%
increase in Ministers salaries,and
provisions for pensions for Ministers,
as well as padded expenses and en-
tertainment allowances for top civil
servants. Then, too, there has: been a
proliferation of redundant and un-
necessary Goverinent posts. (i.e.Sec-
urity Officer, etc.; perhaps instit-
uted as rewards for political allies?)
What Mr. Leblanc also failed to tell
the House was the reason for the in-
verse relationship between the bud-
get growth and the growth of services
offered to the People of Dominica -
look at the state of our roads, con-
ditions at the hospitals, the lower-
ed educational standards at our
schools, the primitive postal service,
the increasing numbers of malnourished
Dominicans .
The Premier seemed to relish giv-
ing himself credit for the decentral-
ization of Dominican affairs. When
he "took over, only Roseau was- Dom-
inica'"... and today, "the rural
areas are just a part of Dominica
as Roseau". (1ext Column)


Friday,December 29, 1972


(continued .....
Without bothering to inform the House
that the construction of the Transin-
sular' road and plans for other roads
linking the productive regions hz.d boon
"in tIhe works" long before "ho took
over", ho wont on to take credit for
all improved communications. *(Roads
are being built in St. Lucia, Grenada,
Montserrat, St. Vincent and soon,
without the intercession of Nr.Loblano)
Speating on Tourism, the Premier
went too far, I think, in blaming the
Newspapers for the lack of progress in
that aroa. He overstepped badly, too,
in obviously referring to the editor
of the Star as a "quasi-Dominican"
(she has documentary evidence of fam-
ily ,csidence in the West Indies since
1623, and her groat-grand-mother was
born here). His attacks on the Icarbon
copy elite' as "being more dangerous
than the Whites" was also out of order.
The Premier may be excused from making
those sort of remarks about Members of
the House who have the opportunity to
reply, but it is inexcusable when
the persons being 4ttacke'd do not have
the same privilege;
In fact, though, any discerning
readers will be bound to recognize that
the Star has done more to encourage
tourism in Dominica than the Loblanc
Government and its political appointees
to the Tourist Board. But Mr. Leblanc
should remember that tourists are not
only attracted by mountains trees and
rivers to any land; the attitudes of
Government and people, the provision
of tourist services (among other a-
tors) are important, In this context,
the Government pusey-footing sa the
National {k" oposals calls for
heavy critibiafs.
The Premier defended his Government's
Aliens Ladd-IIolding Act, insisting that
the l.and is the basic wealth of the
People. But he did not explain why
some Dominicans (Mr. E.O. Leblanc and
Mr. T, Etienne among other "monied"
Dominicans) have boon buying up the
lands of other more needy Dominicans,
thus depriving them and their descen-
dants of that "basic wealth". Ir.
Leblanc thus conveniently failed to'
draw a comparison between the white,
foreign land speculator and his"native"
counterpart. And when Leblanc refer-
red t.o foreigners putting up "ITo'Tres-
passing" signs on Dominican land, he
did not disclose that o f his newly-
acquired property in Vieille Care he.
