dc.description Report ends abruptly. en_US
dc.description.abstract Barbados and Jamaica are moving ahead with the introduction of new legislations for harsher penalties for drug traffickers. New legislations are about to be debated in the Barbados Parliament and the Jamaican government will be implementing laws focusing on treaty arrangements including the seizure of assets and extradition laws. Secondly, the Guyanese bauxite industry is experiencing another strike as workers in the town of Linden demand the payment of retroactive allowances. Following the Financial News, V.S. Naipaul visits Trinidad and Tobago to receive the Trinity Cross, the nation’s highest honour. In response to the claim that East Indians feel alienated in the Trinidadian society, Naipaul asserts that the East Indian population was politically alienated due to the historical pettiness of their politics, such as rivalry, personalities and family feuds. The final segment provides coverage of the tensions between the English and Caribbean journalists during the final day of the Fourth Test Match in Barbados. BBC commentator, Christopher Martin Jenkins was banned from the Voice of Barbados after making controversial comments about Umpire Lloyd Barker, and another British commentator allegedly swore at a Barbadian journalist. en_US
