P~.ge Two THE STAR Friday, i~ovember 2,, l97~3


... by D. CAUDEIRO]

He wears so many hats, He's an artful, an-g mus -=w9i1 ma.---
the New Aristocrat who miles even as he stea .s
he often dons the wrong one. professing love for public brown and land
He's rich and sleek and fat, while he plots, and wheels ajd deals.
the New Aristocrat, He's black this week, next week he's turn-
he has not been long one. ing white,
Cocky, the man of many parts, today a leftist, tomorrow he'll swing right;
the New Aristocrat, lat year a ruaist, this yearw he's passed
he'd rather switch than fight a lraw
More chameleon than cat a rich man with estates, he's the protec-
the New Aristocrat I tor of theooor.

"is Centre, Left and Right. -
He sees jumbies everywhere
he was a jumbie once you see.
His ratings re-echo in the air,
he lays the blame on everybody'.
Educated, learned to a degree,
he changes posture by the hour;
the status-keeper he's come to be,
foxy, full of staying power.
Flexible, he's where it's at,
the New Aristocrat
Shas crossed the floor before.
No problem doing that
for- New Aristocrat,
a slick and snobbish boor.
His art is double-talk and double-
and triple-cross and lies,
formidable with pen and ink
a master of disguise.
He's everything to everyone, to
anyone and all,
he's socialist, trade unionist,
capitalist too;
he's working class, middle class:,
anything you call,
he's people's man, and ladies' man,
......... ......... .. he's even YOU.
His friends today are what
the New Aristocrat
used to call 'Milatre';
he's joined them now, and that is
the New Aristocrat, that,
a natural in the part.
'Gros boug' or lowly rat
the Kew Aristocrat
a well-respected business man;
scandalous, fond of tit for tat
the New Aristocrat
dedicated to his own success, man.

Born a guttersnipe, an alley cat
the New Aristocrat
gifted at half-truths.
His new clothes cannot change that
the New Aristocrat,
is vermin, coarse, uAouth.
His bank account bears overload,
his new abode its special road,
Jack is nimble, and likes to travel
; wide
On public funds, expenses paid he'll
Like most who've neve4b had it so
he's gobbled every single thing he
- could;
Like many who've tadted once of power
the glutton wants the.whole world to
Social climber from the start,
the New Aristocrat
has trampled many sop4s along the wa'
Self-appointed plutojyt
the New Aristocrat,
is climbing still they say.
The arbiter of words, ret semantics
e.ave him cold,
even when he's spealkng,he does just
a6 he's told,
coining phrases to suit occasions
abusing every side,
grinding axes or citations
being flip or hip or snide.
Those who knew him tell you that
the New Aristocrat'
used them, bled them'where he could.
Vindictive opportunist, he may well do
the New Aristocrat -that
your downfall does him good.

(Last three verses on nage 5)

"- "____ _ ....._'_ "'_ *..The Gasolihne Duty has been altered frcm
(CGap..265 Laws of Dpoinica) 280 per gal. to 20 per cent per gallon in Act 24 6f
1972, gazetted Ocit. 19, 1972' Consumption Duties firastappoarod- before this -
'in S.R.O. 23 of 1972 (gazetted" Sept.28, 1972), but gasoline & petroleum'products
wore not mentioned. The Consumption Duty was put on these items by S.R.O.2 /o6
1973 (1.2.73) wit1 g'asoline at 450, but this was promptly altered to 400 three
weeks later by S.R.O. 4. Since" that time the Big Three have been buying from' H.I.
Oil, Antigua, to q4veo th6-20% duty, after price control had been established on
the" basis of Antiquan gasol3ihe. Loss of revenue in'the first six months must have
been considerable1 but in September and October 1973 it must have been astronomic,
if you add the upset to industry, agriculture and the service,industries liko
transport, I understand that a Shell tanker-was due'yesterday,Thursday,bringing
gasoline and some 'exaco bunker fuel for Dominica Coconut Products (which should
be able to resume produition next week). The controlled price (w.th some reduct-
ion of duty) will-be $1.20 per gallon for two months and $1*22 anter that.
One might question the figure of 14,000 gallons of gasoline that the Govern-
ment appears to require easa reserve for "essential services"." ALL Government
Departments in 1969-o70 only averaged around 4,200'gal~.S per month, and the medical
dept. (which one dealer was informed ,r.eqired' '1000 al.- weekly) only. used 1000"
gals. A YEAJR Siope~ that" time th eriEi&been an ricreased use of diesel trucks.
Even if one includes banana trucking,-.something seems to be '-wrong With Governments
estimates of "essqptial service requirements" -- or do the i-nisters and Permanent
Secretaries require and .ase some 100i00 gallons a week on essential duties?.
1971 AUDIT R)PORT oextracts'for 'this week: .
"Para 68 Land Rejtt Regisbers Gomier Stewart, Iings Hill and Rosalie Estate."
With exception of.donier Stewart settlement it appears that records are not'being-
kept. No rental had been collected' in' respect of either settlement during 1971."
"Para 11. Final _iule 'To. 30 requires that 'Epenfditure properly charge-"
able to the accounts'of a given year shall, as far-as possible be met within t-e
year'. This regulation appears to have been contravened" whei expenditure of'at"
least $33,9779,350 chargeable to the 1971 Accounts was disbursed in January 1972.'."
I hope'readers find these items helpful ad a guide to how their taxes are
being spent,, in the past and probably even more so today.:
And to all those who intend wending their way eithe'"to6 the G.S.A. Rally or
the Govt sponsored Botanic Gardens show and all that"follows afterwards, I wish
,you all a happy and incident-free National Day or Days.
