This Day In Conflictyland...Rafe Climbs (All The Way) On Board.


Regarding both Ms. Clark and, perhaps more importantly, her government's Conflict Commissioner:

"...I remember you when you were smart, Paul. But I suppose I shouldn't be surprised, since you don't think that the fact of your son's long and close friendship with Clark and that he is a politically appointed deputy minister in her government places you in a conflict of interest! Hell, Paul, you're probably right. I mean, who would ever dream that a lawyer making $269,000 a year from a legislature made up largely of Liberals would consider it in his interest to keep those Liberals kindly disposed towards him?..."


And, if I remember correctly, the good Mr. Mair himself is also lawyer.

But not a farmer.

Unless, of course, he also hates Email but doesn't mind  the feel of a Blackberry.

Yep, climbed all the way on board, and then rocked the boat...

We've come a long way from the days when the likes of the Frasers would have been left standing at the dock because their masters would have been afraid to sit in front of Rafe on air and try to explain it all.

And that is the real problem around here.

(well, that and who golfs with whom, when and why, not to mention where to talk about what)
