Geez! cut him some slack; next thing you know, he'll decline a board or senate appointment in embarrassment and shame; it's happened before you know; remember Da Princess. The Tories can take it too far sometimes. Ya gotta be careful with these plums, best not to announce them til it gets out. The old Liberal way was right up front and in the open; you gotta dig around a little with the Con Party to find the dirt.

You can't get much for $98.00/hr. these days; you might buy the services of a brown-nosing, unsuccessful politician wannabee, that's prepared to sell his credibility to write what you want in a useless report. Better talent get higher plum appointments.

I've voted Conservative for the very last time; I've had it with these indefensible board appointments, contracts to friends and patronage plums. This behaviour was shunned upon with the Grits were doing it in their hayday; but, it's gotten out of hand with the Tories in the past few years.

We got our money's worth on every single patronage appointment we made. Not only were they all the best and only people capable of doing the job, we were familiar with them, their work and their commitment and blind faith to our cause. They were selected solely on their allegiance to the Con Party of NL and we wouldn't have it any other way. This is the way it was, it is, and it will be; and I said so. If anyone has an opposing view, you're wrong; and I'll sue you.

Here's what information will be released to the Liberals... The blank, blank, blank, was blank, blank, blank. And furthermore, he was the best and only person qualified to write the report.

Holy cow! That report is almost as much as ed martian of Nalcor got for is VACATION Pay. Or At Least in the RANGE of IT! Was that report on patronage positions. We now know what duderdale and her gang thinks of spending the peoples money. This must be a relase of belt tightening. Old habits atre tough to quit, but the taxpayers can handle it...i spose.

I wonder what the current AG thinks of this. Will it make his report next year?

Does anyone ever remember when a uniquely qualified individual or appointment turned out to be a supporter of any other party than PC since the PC's took the reins of the provincial government in 2003? If such exists then that would be truly a unique situation.
