Reviewing the early politics of SVG

Editor: The recent passing of Henry Afflick Haynes on February 17, 2019, at the age of 98 was an occasion to review the early politics of St Vincent and the Grenadines after Universal Adult Suffrage in 1951.

Many from St George would remember his visit to the Calliaqua Anglican School. He gave a scholarship from that school to the Grammar School that was won by the late Joel Huggins.

We remember the era of these early politicians and the political awakening of the masses, so to speak. It was an inspiration to the young students.
We have come a long way since then thankful for those who paved the way and ever conscious of their contribution to the development of the nation.
The importance of the knowledge of the local history is ever present.

Let us inspire each other to love one another and help each other.
