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

From Thursday's proceedings in the Chamber of Sycophancy — formerly the House of Assembly — from a member who doesn't realize that he's already in cabinet, and doesn't need to keep auditioning:
MR. HICKEY: I can also tell you that the Member for The Straits & White Bay North now, he got a substantial investment out of that – government money, absolutely; Tory money. He came to the minister and said: Boy, I have an idea; put an iceberg plant up in The Straits & White Bay North. Well, Mr. Speaker, it is time that the Member from The Straits & White Bay North let us know how that is progressing, or we can have the Minister of Tourism doing tours through that particular facility. A very important investment, Mr. Speaker, again in rural Newfoundland and Labrador - rural Newfoundland and Labrador.

Oh my. I wonder if the Premier shares John Hickey's view that a discussion of how sitting Members received government largesse in their pre-political days is fair game...

Hang on, someone just slipped a brown envelope under my door. I feel like Bill Rowe.
