Eloquence

Yet another cabinet minister who doesn't realize he's already in the cabinet:

MR. KENNEDY: Finally, Mr. Speaker, openness, transparency and accountability versus stonewall. It is very unfortunate when we see terms like stonewall being used. It implies, at a minimum, if not expressly states, that as a government we are hiding things, we are deliberately obstructing, we do not want the truth to come out. Well, as Premier Williams said today much more eloquently and forcefully than I can ever say it, there is nothing further from the truth.
Oddly enough, there is no distinctly local sense for the otherwise ordinary English word "eloquent" in the Dictionary of Newfoundland English, or in the first supp.

Maybe it will make it into the next revision.

Considering the goings on and shortcomings in government and health care this version of eloquently might come in handy.
