Having just finished reading Greg Malone’s recent history book on Confederation, “Don’t Tell The Newfoundlanders,” let me first congratulate Mr. Malone on his masterful effort, energy and research completeness of this manuscript.
It’s a book that keeps the reader spellbound as to what the next page of his manuscript will reveal regarding the political “dirty tricks” of both the British and Canadian government politicians and their assisting bureaucrats, (including both local U.K. governors of that time period) and what and how they did to the innocent Newfoundland politicians involved in this pre-Confederation game long, long before April 1, 1949.
Great read, Mr Malone, congratulations and thank you for your efforts and time in presenting these facts and pointing out what really happened to our country and sovereignty during this well-planned, devious and illegal conspiracy by both Britain and Canada (as formally confirmed by Lord Beaverbrook at a secret British War cabinet meeting held circa 1943 ).
May I suggest also that the provincial government place a copy of this history book in all schools and libraries throughout the province of Newfoundland and Labrador and make it mandatory reading for all high school students prior to their graduation — and, yes, also mandatory reading for senior government bureaucrats themselves.
