We all know that the smuggling

trade (dated 21st June) which we
have read. Yet what is our Govern-

Yet this week, when we paid '$3.45

we were horrified both by the smell
and the taste of this hithert, de-

dead cockroaches or-something hor-

We gave the packages ,away. A friend
said it might be due to the pres-

Friday 24th June, 1977 T H E S T A R Page three

This weekend our much travelled, much ridiculed Ringling circus
of Ministers of Government will return home for the umpteenth
time this year. They will no doubt get on the radio and TV Stations
and tell us, the public that they have obtained such and such
promises of aid for us. By now the public are doubtful of these
promises. Will they ever come to reality? is the question on
everyone's lips.
This last jaunt is perhaps the most annoying of all to the
public. Since 20th December 1976, the Government Ministers threw
the ball of independence into the playing field and everyone has
been thinking and talking about this. They informed the public that
the new flag would rise just past midnight on the 3rd November 1977.
They returned from England with no date settled for this
independence that the public are still so fearful of, because of
the lack of knowledge of all that it entails, One would have
thought that they would have taken time off to explain to the
citizens of this country what it was all about. But instead
within 8 days of their returnthey flew off again to England to
discuss aid with the Overseas Development Department.
Why these wasteful trips all over the world? They had seen
the Overseas Development Department about aid in late March 1977;
whatever reply they received then could not differ much to the
reply they would receive in late May 1977. Because circumstances
had not altered in that time.
What is even more annoying to the public is that they try to
pretend that other people are paying for the expenses they incur
while travelling. But the public know that this is not true.
They did not dare say this about the Independence talks because
the Opposition had to be present and know that the expenses are
being paid by the taxpayer.
But the Premier who is a great storyteller stated that he had
been invited by the American Government to visit for a month in
USA and that he was travelling to New York via London, West Germany
(he forgot to mention Switzerland). The absurdity of this is so
great as to have people rolling in the streets with laughter if it
was not in fact so tragic in that money required for necessary
facilities is being frittered away on what we would call in patois
It is true that the Premier may have received a month's
scholarship award from the United States Government such as have
been awarded and accepted by political leaders in Barbados. In 1973
the present Premier of Barbados, then Leader of the Opposition, had
such an award; and about that time Henry Forde, also of the
Opposition now Attorney General of Barbados also had such a
scholarship awarded him. So we know that such offers are not
limited to Ministers of Government; but of course the Government
guards them for themselves.
But what the public of Dominica realises is that the
scholarship was awarded to one man, the Premier. The public knows
that the American Government did not invite the Minister of
Finance, the Attorney General and a permanent Secretary to partake
of this scholarship. The public of Dominica is also well aware
that the USA Government will not pay for these men or for the
airline ticket to New York from Dominica that includes
extraordinary calls to London, West Germany and Switzerland.
But the Government of Dominica like to juggle with words as
well as with figures and so when they quite unnecessarily took
E.O.Leblanc to talks in London as an adviser to Government they
found it convenient for him to return home via the United States
so that he could visit his family there.
And so the hard earned money of the taxpayer is frittered
away at the whims and fancies of a Premier who does not care that
the people of this island cannot get the basic medical attention
required by them. The Government are completely uncaring that the
Doctors seem to be leaving the island and that politics does not
fill the belly nor does it cure the ailments. They do not care that
the poor underprivileged masses that they talk about so much in
their hypocritical style, have to buy their own injection needles,

their own bandages, their own medication when they go to the
Hospital for care and attention be it in the wards or in casualty.
Some hard working members of staff who would like to make
conditions what they should be at the hospitals and clinical have
in the past found a willing public to give donations. But they
know now that they cannot expect such voluntary help again. The
reply is being made to them that s not my concern, I pay my
taxes and the Ministers waste it; let them stop wasting."
There is another aspect to these constant trips .of Ministers
mt in e 8 st deer ~ ~8 s ew kgny^A ^.e^A~y tn the
ere is no neeo have so many minis ers. Some me ago the
Government tried to create two more Linistriew but they did not
carry the amendment through to, the.end. But why should there be
seven Ministers besides the Premier when there is no work to keep
them at home? When they can afford to be out of the island three
and a half weeks out of every four? Since only three Ministers
are in fact carrying out the duties, let us have only three
ministers and let us save about $50,000.00 per year. Let us appoint
an official "travelling" Minister who will have no other portfolio
but that of travelling. We, the public know that the Premier
could not accept that post because he could not go out on his own
and speak on his own, that is why he has to have the Attorney
General with him at all times as his mouthpiece.
The last aspect we should consider is that the Government does
not show its gratitude to the citizens of the State. In any other
state where the Government Ministers absented themselves from
their desk with such regularity and for such long periods, the
leaders would have been deposed and a new regime would have taken
over. The Government are also fortunate in that the Opposition are
non-violent and adhere to the principle that the change must come
through the ballot-box. But that is in keeping with the
Opposition's whole attitude, that the people are the real rulers
of the country and the method by which they make their wishes
known is by their vote be it in general election or at referendum.
In the Seychelles, the constitution of which has been a
guideline in some ways for the Opposition's proposals for a new
constitution, the people not so many weeks ago deposed the
President because he was not performing as they expected him to
do. He was about to change the Constitution without consulting
the people. To quote The Times of 6th June 1977: "The rebels
said they were deposing (the President).........because he had
not spent three consecutive weeks in the islands since taking
office. He was more interested in promoting his personal
prestige than looking after the interests of his people".......
"(the President) has often been described as "the playboy
president" and in a statement from the islands' police
headquarters, he was accused of a lavish style of life".
(wait until we see Minister of Finance's JAGUAR MOTOR CAR)
The President in reply to the accusation that he was always out
of the island replied "that he spent much time out of the islands
trying to attract much-needed investment."
This all sounds very familiar to us. We have heard of three
trips to France (don't count the departments of Guadeloupe and
Martinique) and after every trip the self same song is sung
"STADIUM". DBS carried a fanfare on breaking of ground at the
Stadium but a visit to the site will merely demonstrate that that
portion of land has become a large open air garage for one bull-
dozer either broken down or suffering from lack of funds to
motivate it!
Will our leaders learn that the time has come when they
are unable to fool any part of the people any part of the time!
