dc.description.abstract Allegations of misappropriation of funds and bad management in Britain's Nottingham Carnival have led to police investigation in the financing of the event. The Carnival which is the largest street festival in Europe and receives more than 180,000 pounds in funding from public organizations has declared a loss of one hundred thousand pounds. A petition has been handed in to the Guyana High Commission in London. It contained over two thousand signatures of people who are opposed to the dumping of toxic wastes in Guyana. The inauguration of President George Bush to office is likely to herald some changes in U.S. foreign policies, including its relations with Cuba. The report concluded with a review of what the British Press has been saying that are of interest to the Caribbean. These include Yardies crimes in Cardiff, comments on Viv Richards' Glamorgan cricket contract and the death of Vincentian born cricketer, Wilf Slack. en_US
