Voice Of the Conservative Mouthpiece
By the end of October, The Ministry of Truth will have aired 191 hours of open-line programming for the month.
Excluding commercial and news breaks, that works out to about 140 hours of caller time.
Over the course of at least eight calls, fully 107 minutes — a little over one and three-quarters hours — were taken up by Glorious Leader.
Twenty-two minutes, early in the month, were occupied singing the Sovietesque praises of the new official provincial deely-boppers.
Three minutes on October 5th were dedicated to a grovelling apology to Judy Foote.
The remaining time, over 80 minutes, including over half an hour of Danny's "spontaneous" appearance with the fawning Ambassador Comrade-Citizen Bill Rowe, was used up on or since October 17th.
Not at all coincidentally, the Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi by-election was called on October 10th.
Perhaps then Danny wasn't joking about abolishing the House of Assembly.
Why bother real with real accountability to the elected legislature, when you can have fake accountability, for a fraction of the price, by Government Through Open Line?
