When you're going around in circles, every step is a change of direction.

And to see Glenn Littlejohn applaud today after the throne speech, wow talk about a hypocrite. Good luck next election Glenn, we will get our district back to Liberal next time.

I think that this “Throne Speech” said it very clearly, where we were, where we are, what we’ve done and received over the past 10 years and where Premier Dunderdale will take you in the future. Everything stated are facts with obtainable and realistic goals put forth by the duly elected people of Newfoundland and Labrador for the people of Newfoundland and Labrador. “God guard thee Newfoundland and Labrador”.

"Thanks to the leadership of My Premier...." This and numerous other self-serving platitudes are repeated ad nauseam throughout this 17 page fairy tale. A real whopper of a story written by the Premier's Office to help bolster her sagging image and poll numbers. Read with all the pomp and ceremony that a new Lt. Governor can provide in hopes that the people who hear it or read it won't make the connection that the person constantly praised throughout the document is the person who wrote it. It is undoubtedly one of the most unpleasant tasks of being a Lt. Governor - having to pretend that these sickly words are your own. For example, Fagan is forced to assert incredulously that the people who favour big deficits/big bureaucracies are the same as those who oppose Muskrat Falls. Not an ounce of truth or logic in that accusation but 'never mind' thinks Dunderdale, 'it's better to group all our enemies under one roof so we can tar them all with the same brush'. This throne speech - like this government - embraces the expedience of the Big Lie. Perhaps the biggest lie of all is her claim that "My Government has struck the proper balance that preserves the right to know while protecting privacy and personal information". If we, the electorate, can be made to believe that, then surely we will blindly accept whatever else this government has on offer - no matter how preposterous or damaging to the long-term public interest of the province.
