"We can't allow things that are inaccurate to stand." — The Word of Our Dan, February 19, 2008.

Natural Resources Minister (where’s Danny?) Kathy Blunderdale claimed this afternoon, in conversation with No Names Please, that during the Voisey’s Bay negotiations, Roger Grimes “because of the strong Opposition, had the leverage to go back and demand a better deal.”

Okay then

Let’s call this the Blunderdale Principle: In order to make better deals, a government needs strong opposition.


Just look at the empirical evidence. Voisey’s Bay. Blunderdale says it’s a “better deal”, and that it’s a “better deal” because, at the time, there was “strong Opposition”.

And while she didn’t draw the parallel, you only need go back to Smallwood’s final term, the one that gave us Churchill Falls, when a strong government faced an opposition of just three seats.

Right, Kathy Blunderdale?


So, what does that say about the deals that Danny (where’s Danny?) is making now?

And what does it say about Danny (where’s Danny?) and his determination to wipe all opposition, within the House of Assembly and without, from the face of the earth?
