Public money coming for Rolls-Royce

Paul Oram may be having trouble paying the health care bills but his predecessor, Ross Wiseman, apparently has cash for what appears to be an outright give-away to one of the great international symbols of luxury.

Yes, Ross will hand out taxpayer cash to Rolls-Royce.

“Contribution” is the word the provincial government likes to use when it hands over cash to a private sector company, not as a loan with interest.

Let’s see if that’s what it turns out.

In the name of gawd, drop the h...the word is equity.

Yes, Steve.

He does have a way of highlighting all the shortcomings, foibles, and other laughable tendencies of certain political organizations and certain politicians.

Steve said...

I don't think he is highlighting. I think he is being his usual nasty self.

I don't have a nasty bone in my body.

Except for my right femur, maybe.

Edward G. Hollett said...

So if Wally is nasty, Steve, what is Danny Williams in full flight with his charming brand of name-calling?

Apparently the new Rolls Royce models come with X-ray technology. You can get an X-ray in your car while you drive from Lewisporte to Gander.
