The Alliance For Change (AFC) says that too many responsibilities have been placed in the hands of Minister of State, Joseph Harmon. The Party thinks that this is the root of many problems in the coalition government which it is a part of.

These hardy souls congregated at weekends in temples, the marketplace and sporting grounds and celebrated life in genteel surroundings.

There was a particular group that talked about little else except cricket. They knew the players, statistics, the social aspects of the game and who were the likely prospects to make it big.
