From a recent BC Government FOI release in response to a 'media' inquiry:
What's this one all about Alfie?
Well, as you might expect, it's...
Sparkle Pony Karaoke!
All of which is clearly much more important, and requires all kinds of time, effort and multiple back-and-forths with the friendlies compared to, say, the flat-out rejection of an unfriendly who might actually ask real questions like, say, Andrew McLeod:
...“I have the unfortunate duty to be the bearer of bad news,” (Premier) Clark’s press secretary Stephen Smart informed me by email Thursday. “I’m very sorry but I’ve tried to make the schedule work this way, that way and the other and I am just not able to fit you in for a year-end interview tomorrow.”
“I completely fall on my sword here in that I should have pushed for a longer chunk of time for these,” wrote Smart, a former CBC reporter and press gallery colleague who went to work in Clark’s office in February. “I’d be happy to try and line you up with a senior minister instead if that might be helpful or something else in lieu of the premier. Just let me know if there is anything.”...
Personally, I have come to the conclusion that it is our fine premier, based on actual evidence and events that have occurred, repeatedly, over the last 13 years (more to come!) rather than bafflegab lapped up, unquestioned, by the local PostMedia friendlies, who is the local political party leader who is most lacking in an ossified vertebral column.
Conflicty?....Well....As the BC Liberals are so fond of telling we, the peons..It's all in the past so...Why worry!
