THE kindest thing to
be said about 'this

It does not threaten,

and What abouo the moiey giv4 'by

THRONEI: SPEECH (page one)
As an ex-Federal Minister I can
tell you how a Throne Speech is sup-
posed toa be composed, Each- Minister
is. supposed to. draft his/her own
section, stressing immediate future
projects and throwing in.a little
stress on achievement, naturally,.
All sections are passed to the P.M.
or 'Premier and he uses his blue pen-
cil then passes it.to a top civil
servant who coordinates it and Vdlls
it up for perusal' by the Gov.General
pr Governor, who then has the job- of
reading, it. That's how phrases lke
"Soc io-economic development requ ires
an ambitious and pragmatic approach"
creep. in to confuse the ordinary man.
And why. there 'are 5-year plans within
earlier 5-year plans and so forth,
Mr.Stevens, who for family reasons
was in town, comments that "Nothing
was said about Health in the Speech;
that the' tax relief promised shows
without doubt i;he Finance Ministerb
budget proposals were ridiculous."
He adds,: "Education is everybody's
business, iand it is democratically'
humiliating for a people to have an.
Education Act thrust upon them with-
out seeing and discussing it before-
'hand in detail.'" And seVeral other

Misery, Torment, Wasteful days,
Suffering, his hungry eyes filled with tears,
Thinking of his uthire, past thoughts still beating his
brains -
He has a feeling of rejection, its like being bound in
Watching people, hating people, loving people, sym-
pathising with some
Watching souls die, wondering when his turn would come.
Scorning theldread living conditions, watching prices
soar up fast.
R',tten, disgusting inflation he says, how long will you
His life is filled with dreams, dreaming of better
changes for his fellow youths.
But deep in his heart, he knows thatdreams are not
always the truth
He thinks our world is inking, sinking on a downward
He is begging his people for help, before we reach a
final end, .
