I went out fairly early today so I was able to pick up all three local papers.

The impression I got was that the opponents of the referendum were opposing the Prime Minister rather than the idea of a new consitution. The headline on the Vincentian, in particular, seemed to be more like "nyeah, nyeah" than the relatively factual headline on Searchlight.

But then politics is more obviously personal on St. Vincent than I'm used to; and journalism is a branch of politics.

I suspect that one might get better results in the U.S. style of doing one subject at a time.
