[...] It was therefore decided not to put the franchise into the Constitution to have the first general election on the 1931 franchise but to empower the new Parliament to change the franchise law. [...] If one starts with the assumption that the Indians are interlopers brought in by the British the correct decription is not ' communalism ' but ' nationalism '. If one starts from the assumption that the Indians (and of course the so-called Europeans) are part of the nation ' then ' communalism ' is the correct term. [...] The newspapers certainly gave more space to the Government than to the Opposition but the Government not the Opposition made the running from the start. [...] On the other hand there is still a gulf fixed between the Engliseducated section of the population and the mass of the electorate : the fact that I knew something of the former and very little of the latter is probably important because the two groups may have had different scales of values.
