How quaint!

According to a VOCM story on Wednesday, cabinet minister Danny Williams is under the impression that the Danny Williams-Government cabinet is a democracy:
Premier Opposed to Online Gambling

Premier Danny Williams says he is opposed to introducing online gambling in the province. On VOCM Open Line with Randy Simms Wednesday morning, the Premier said when the idea is brought before cabinet, he will vote against it. According to the Atlantic Lottery Corporation, $50-million in potential revenue is currently flowing out of the province via online gambling websites. Williams says the taxes that are in place to generate revenue from alcohol and tobacco sales are already enough.

He announced his opposition to the FPI bill but that didn't stop his government from pushing that through.

Similarly, whatever His own thoughts on the question were, it was His caucus, which spontaneously and of their own free will, voted to evict former MHA Fabian Manning from its ranks.

This "eviction" left me with the feeling that maybe , just maybe ,this was a predetermined gamble that paid off .

Wait a second. How could the government possibly "introduce" online gambling to the province?

It's already here.

The sun doesn't rise in the morning without cabinet approval.

No, the sun doesn't rise until it calls VOCM to tell us it's risen.
