    The speech from the throne is appropriate named; pure BS presented by a brown-noser.

    well i don't see why there is a Lt Governor, as he is appointed by the blunderdale congress, his only role in my opinion is to read what the Government tells him what he is allowed to read, never got any thing to say on his own accord

    perhaps if ALL forms governments (federal, provinicial, municpal) would: -- ACTUALLY see past the next election & plan into the future of the country, province, city, town; - ACTUALLY govern their respective territories - departments, INSTEAD of the constant circus in th parliments trying to slander the other parties; -ACTUALLY TRY to prioriterize spending & reduce the deficits instead of cutting essential services & taxing the lower & middle classes to death, while they appear to quielty vote themselves pay raises & keep padding their expenses & titanium pensions plans: lead by example.... Take a close look what's happening in Cyprus, Greece, Italy & the other EU countries (let alone the middle east, Russia, etc)...wer'e all connected economically;.... 'it can't happen here' was also spoken just before WW1 & WW2...here's hoping history doesn't repeat itself again....and again....

    How quick we forget, remember the Clyde Lied slogan, Tobin we won't forget, the Lib govt not putting their share of pension money into the pension fund and taking the public service share and putting it into general revenue. The freeze on wages and rollbacks and disregard for contracts by the Lib govt that was agreed upon by the previous PC govt. The mouldy schools and neglected roads. Govt workers were far behind the country in wages, schools had to be repaired or torn down, roads had to be repaired, bridges repaired and what about the trans Labrador hwy Labrador was completely neglected by previous Lib govts All of this and more cost the govt a lot of money and the Williams govt a PC govt came through. Now these same unions are blasting the govt with adds we are forced to listen to. It costs a lot to catch up what will the Lib or NDP do if elected. I wouldn't take a chance on either.

    To hear the liberal leader accuse the government of "reckless spending" is a laugh. It was Clyde Wells and Brian Tobin ( two liberal premiers) who put the province on the brink of bankruptcy with "reckless spending" that the PC's had to try and overcome when elected , and the government is still trying to get us out of the hole. How quick they forget.

      Just to clarify, the lieutenant-governor is appointed by the prime minister, not the provincial government.

    The throne spin continues the parroting of misguidance by the government. Ten years in and foundering, we now need a ten year plan. What will be the 50 year plan to ease the excessive taxation, caused by the Muskrat boondoggle,upon the captive ratepayers-taxpayers who are locked in and denied the benefits of cheaper imported energy from the mainland.

    If you ever wondered, even to a fraction of a percentage point, that the Lt.-Gov plum appointment is neutral; then think again after the current freeloader kept referencing "my government" throughout the speech. Not, "the government"; or, the current administration, or, our governing party; or, the PC government...or any other option. He kept repeating, "my"....as in ownership. Political patronage appointments has to stop; it's long overdue to abolish this bobblehead, freeloader capacity.

      That's because it is his government. He is the head of the government.

      As the story points out, the speech is written by the premier's office and the lieutenant-governor merely serves a traditional and ceremonial role in reading it; in other words, the government puts the words in his mouth, not the other way around.

    How many more directions can they go? First they boast we have lots of money and then they mismanage things so we don't have any money. Can't have a lot of confidence in a crowd like that.
