Spolitical meeting but just a, rneejiog to hear. the

which I laid my friend that at bhis present period. '

: F "Hooray" that barst out. from son. ei tbhe
crowd, himself had to stop them. At a certain
tog; of the, meeting, every young man and
vuci- young woman climbed all the benches in
hal l even the ve~y platforil.which the young
'men ia'dv3;d towexdsi was overcrowded. I
couldd not sea the, speakers. At question time
the firat person Who went forward with two fool-
scalp sheets of questions was ex-Teacher Riviere
he started by welcoming the Honourable Premier
S most cordioy & copgratulating him for oaming
Sto Portsmouth and then his questions started:
'Whether John can describe the needs and re-
quirements of the town of ,Porrtmouth?' John
started on streets and roads, jetty, hospital, etc;
but when j an mentioned "Cabrits" with. so
miany rmi::. -..earmarked for its development,
hecn came down the uproar, each item he stated
in the millions caused a&n outburst of,laughter
coshi oshl ha hatHotel, Marina,poads, all in
milions, thi- was what' you may term a real
scandal, he was ridiculed, he was asked how
many times he has been to Portsmouth? In any
case, they stopped Riviere with his questions.
Then Savarin took up, he told John that he
would like him to itemize to him all what La-
bout has done for Portsmouth during their 15
years term of office. J6hn answered he was not
then the Premier.. The crowd shouted after him.
Sand asked him whether he was not a minister and
th was also Deputy Premier!

STRICTLY POLITICAL.(fr .. )
by Wyllis LeBlanc 'Cousin'Wyis
The Hon. self-made Premier makes
villagers' problems looks so easy
during his tour and implies urgent
consideration or attention. Since
the Premier is responsible to see
people and solve problems, therefore
it suggests there is no need to have
parliamentary representatives, and.
this attitude is unconstitutional and
undemocratic,
In other developing countries,
when Political Leaders want to be
known, they engage themselves in
familiarization tours, greeting people
etc., and hardly do.they engage them-
selves in-discussing local problems,
especi ally.at election time..
Ian't the Premier building his,
image and introducing his party can-
didates for the.coming election? Why
do so many of his candidates travel
with him; if not on a. political mis-
sion? .
In some areas, this political .
*build-up was not received well, be-
cause people will not be fooled all
the time. It is high time that
Dominicans' should wake up from this
political slumber and change to a
system more meaningful, constructive,
democratic and reconciling.
*
The Premier's 'Meet-the-People'
tour at.Vieille Case,ended in a fiasco
when answers to, question put by Wyllis
LeBlanc (Cousin Wyllis) were not forth-
coming., The youth of Vieille Case
who are strictly backing Cousin Wyllis,
shouted "We don't want Patrick John",
"We don't want Labour." Whereupon
the mike'was snatched from Cousin
Wyllis' hand by his political enemy
the ex-Premier, E..O.LeBlanCi. Cousin
Wyllis- left the stage at this juncture,
but when he returned later for more
questions, he found that tear-gas had
been spra~yg on the stage and there-
fore the meeting 'had to be abandoned,
Ironically, it seems-that one.of the
ex-Premier s children is- using the.
Freedom Party's. symbol saying that is
'what they believe in.

CONDUCT OF AN EX-PREMIER

Women should get busy and start cam-

UNEEPT PROMISES
Prior to the last general elec-
tion the Leblanc Labour Party (now
led by Patrick John) published their
manifesto which proposed the follow-
ing:
1. D VELOPMiNT OF THE IIERASTRgUTURE
Roads, Water Development, Elee-
triicdty & Telephones, -Housing,
Cheoks against Bureaucracy
2., Deep Water HarbQur; 3. Inter-
national Jet Airstrip; 4. Educa-
tion; 5. Economic Development; -
6. Cooperatives; 7. Social Security;
8, Labour Legislation; 9. Civic &
Local Government Affairs; 9.Youth,
and 10 Sports and Culture. It is
pointless going into all.what the.
manifesto had to -say alongside these'
ten points abovementioned. There
are so many "we-shall", "will enabl:
"will be brought into effect" and
others, that iup till now not a
stroke of work was done, but tax-
payers' money was spent maliciously.
and unfair,
When roads, ,electricity, housing,
international jet airstrip and
social security are promised at the
beginning of their five years and
only at 'the, end a little is.being
said (in other words,, a- repeat of
the manifesto).are they once more
fooling the people to get into power
the way they succeeded the last time
with the help of the Pundit? It
would be the semijucgment day of the
judgment day the bible talks about.
'What ,I would appreciate at this
point is to ask all those who poss-
ess a copy of the manifesto to read
it and see if they have kept their
promises and. ask yourselves whether.
you are going to vote these wicked
people back into power this elect-
ion. I say ngo, because you can no
longer be fooled.

A P O L I QT I.C AL S UG G E S TI 0 N
by 'A. M. aohn Lewis.
Since the House of Assembly has now been officially dissolved and the
General Election as a result must .be just around the corner, I-think that
one can now reflect on the harmonious and statesmanlike manner in which the
members of the'Official Opposition Party (the Dominica. Freedom Party), and
the Independent Opposition Member, Mr. P.A.S. Stevens, who represented the
North-Eastern Electoral District, have operated.
Mr. Stevens has received the parliamentary support-of the Opposition --
Freedom Party members on every occasion that he has moved a motion in the
House in the name of the people of Marigot, Londonderry,-Wesley, Calibish%
Woodfordhill and Atkinson, whjahe had the honour to represent since he-re-
placed his father Mr. W. S. Stievens in the House. of Assembly.
The type of :leadership that Mr. Moise, Mr. St rens, M~b Fadelle and the
indefatigable Miss M..E. Charles .provided during their. tenure as Opposition
members will long .be remembered by Dominicans both at home and abroad.
I wish to congratulate them for the brilliant manner in which they
accredited themselves in the House of Assembly. They proved to be by far
superior to the Labour Government members of the House in so far as parlia-
mentary procedure 'is concerned.
The time has now come when Mr. Pat. A.S. Stevens and the Doininica Freedom
Party should join their poaitieal hands, brains, Anfluences, hearts and
abilities: together and offer to Dominicans the .type of leadership whiph they'
.need in. this time of national crisis.
If they could have operated, so successfully as mehibers of the Opposition,
I see no reason 'why they should not prove to be a resounding 'success: s
members of a new Government of Dominica.
It is in the national interest therefore that I call upon Mr. Pat Stevens
to join hands; with the Dominica Freedom Party and. fight for the forthcominge
General Election under one banner.
I was hoping that such action would have occurred without a suggestion
from an outside source. However, since this. has not yet been a reality and
considering the fact that the Geieral.Election is -definitely around the
corner and being yesy.-Interested in .the welfare of my country' I had no
alternative but to convey my political opinion through the medium of'the
press.
Let me clearly state that 1 dn a long time admirer of the political capa-
bilities of Mr. Stevens. I was also a Labourite when the Stevens father a'd-
son were in the Labour Party.
I am'cbnvinced that the people in the Marigot area will accept Mr. P.A*.
Steven's decision, if he will finally take it., and I sincerely hope that he
Will, to fight the election as a member of the Dominica Freedom Party,
I trust that for the sake of Dominica"iny suggestion will be given the
urgent and favourable consideration that. it deserves by-Mr.. .P.A.S. Stevens -
and the Dominica Freedoni Party,
In 8t. VYi.cent .Mr Milton.Ca4to and Mr. Ebenezer, Joshua, who had been
bitter.political rivals for over a decade, joined their political influences
together when'it became clear to them and to St. Vincentians in general that
there was political, financial and economic uncertathty in St. Vincent, in
order to save their country from complete political ruin,' according to them,
-by the-Government of Premier James Mitchell.
The situation in Dominic&a is by far worse than was the St. Vincent situ-
ation and it is now incumbent on Mr. P.A.So Stevens to join the Opposition
Dominica Freedom Party in whom the population has undoubtedly developed a
very high degree of political confidence,, thus becoming a unified politi-
cal party. A.M.J.L. : PRVAlTE .COACHIhG
