Well, well, well, whady'a know.
Our fine premier has decided to stop taking her personal grift.
Kinda/sorta, because NDP something, something, something:
...Clark says she’s changing the way she’ll claim money from the BC Liberals.
“What I’ve asked the party to do instead is let’s get rid of it. And then let’s do what I think all party leaders should do. And I would encourage the NDP to do this as well. Which is ask instead for reimbursable expenses.”...
Why did the good Ms. Clark decide to lay-off her little big money-driven side deal, at least the part that is straight up cash?
Is it possible she's come to realize that it is morally and ethically wrong?
Of course not.
How do I know this?
Because of what she herself actually said:
...On Friday night the Premier called the stipend a distraction...
Words (and salads) fail me.
And, make no mistake, this $50K per year that doesn't even cover Ms. Clark's new 'rent' in downtown Quilchena is the least of this.
The real moral of this story?...Concerted press coverage matters, no matter what Mr. Obvious of Neepsend has to say (over and over and over and over again, including in his latest...see if you can spot it)
