  • Description

    IN SALISBURY, CAPITAL OF RHODESIA, THERE IS, AS YET, LITTLE EVIDENCE THAT RHODESIA IS EXPERIENCING THE "HARD TIMES" EXPECTED FOLLOWING THE IMPOSITION OF INTERNATIONAL ECONOMIC SANCTIONS ON THE SMITH GOVERNMENT. CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS REFLECT AN AIR OF PROSPERITY AS RHODESIA PREPARES TO CELEBRATE THE FESTIVE SEASON. MEANWHILE, THE CITY REMAINS CALM WITH BARELY ANY EVIDENCE OF IT BEING AT THE HEART OF AN INTERNATIONAL CRISIS. THE TOWNSFOLK, INCLUDING AFRICANS, ARE GOING ABOUT THEIR WORK NORMALLY.

    THE SMITH REGIME SEEMS MORE CONFIDENT THAN EVER. IN A TELEVISION SPEECH, MR IAN SMITH SAID THAT MR WILSON (THE BRITISH PRIME MINISTER) WAS FURTHER AWAY THAN EVER FROM HIS OBJECTIVE OF BRINGING DOWN THE "RHODESIAN GOVERNMENT".

    MEANWHILE IT IS REVEALED IN SALISBURY THAT RHODESIA HAS PREPARED A PLAN WHICH WILL HELP TO SUSTAIN THE COUNTRY'S TOBACCO INDUSTRY - NOW THREATENED BY SANCTIONS AND EMBARGOES. THE AGRICULTURAL MINISTER IN THE SMITH GOVERNMENT, LORD GRAHAM, TOLD THE RHODESIA TOBACCO ASSOCIATION THAT HE COULD NOT RELEASE DETAILS BECAUSE "OUR ENEMIES WOULD FIND SOMETHING ELSE THAT THEY THINK WOULD BRING US TO OUR KNEES."
